  • Cleanse, Detox, Reset, what’s a body to do?

    Cleanse, Detox, Reset, what’s a body to do?

    Cleansing has become very popular in recent years, but it is certainly not new to humans. Various types of cleanses have been practiced throughout history. In these modern, technological times we have put a new spin on an old practice. There are many types of cleanses out there on the market and in cyber-space. It can be confusing and overwhelming when trying to decipher which cleanse, which method, or which product is the best. p>Cleanses range from 3-day fasting with varying “drinks” or “juices” as the only nutrition to one, two, or three week programs. Quick fixes may seem attractive, but are truly not very effective and are more difficult than it may ....

  • Detox Plan

    Detox Plan

    Properly nourishing the body and allowing for digestion and absorption of nutrients, vitamins and minerals is vital to good and long lasting health. Below are some thoughts on using traditional nutritional wisdom to carry the body through life healthy and vibrant:
    Eat Real Food. Go back to eating from the garden and the range.
    Eat organic whenever possible and avoid GMOs. This applies to fruits and vegetables as well as animal products. Toxins are stored in the fat of the animal and traditionally raised animals have much higher levels of toxins in their fat.
    When eating animal products think of eating “nose to tail”. Consider cooking meats on the bone and with the ....

    Traditional Nutrition & Cooking

    In our quest to reduce the toxic effects of our environment we have discussed many things including healthy diet, meditation, gut health and probiotics, dry brushing and coconut oil pulling. When these are put into practice they help your body naturally detoxify. Detoxing and Cleansing are really big topics right now. The truth is that your body has an amazing ability to heal itself when allowed. The body is detoxing or cleansing itself. When we eat toxic food, are over stressed, breathe toxic air and use toxic products we are not allowing our bodies to do what nature has so preciously made them to do. So when we talk about doing a detox or cleanse we are actually talking about ....

  • Toxic Overload Gut Health & Probiotics

    Toxic Overload Gut Health & Probiotics

    We think of bacteria as a bad thing, related to disease. But in reality our body is made up of over 100 TRILLION bacteria. There is about 10 times the number of bacteria in the body than cells! Some of these bacteria (bugs) are good and some are bad. Ideally we have about an 85/15 ratio of good to bad. Maintaining this ratio is very important for the health of the body. The gut, or the microbiome, is where we house these good bacteria. Gut health is directly related to overall health, in fact you should think of the gut as a second brain. Think of the old saying, “I have a gut feeling”, or how we often feel sick to our stomach when we are upset or emotionally hurt. ....

  • Enjoy the season, Guilt Free - Part II

    Enjoy the season, Guilt Free - Part II

    I believe in enjoying life and experiencing all it has to offer, I want to be able to eat some of those wonderful calorie packed treats and enjoy my holiday meal without guilt or regret. The trick is to balance it out. Eat healthy, whole foods most of the time. When it comes time to splurge, do it on dishes that really are worth it to you and enjoy those thoroughly and without regret. The stress that regret puts on your body is worse than the splurge!! Exercise, or just plain movement, is really important as well. Exercise is not just good for the body, but also for the brain. And during the hectic holidays filled with stress, exercise is your friend for stress relief. Try to ....

    Enjoy the Season, Guilt Free - Part I

    The years seem to fly by and once again Christmas is upon us. The Holidays are here, are you ready? The next couple of months are full of parties, food, shopping, gifts and travel. While they are joyous and festive times, they often evoke stress, anxiety and often dreaded weight gain. The average adult expects to gain 5 pounds throughout the holiday season. Co-workers bring goodies to work. Parties are filled with those fattening treats. Food is everywhere. On top of that, our already busy schedules are squeezed even tighter and we have less time for ourselves. It is more difficult to eat properly and fit in exercise; after all, there is a tree to decorate and gifts to wrap! ....

  • How to Make Bone Broth

    How to Make Bone Broth

    Start with the healthiest animal you can buy. Broth can be made with just the animal parts, but by adding in some vegetables and herbs can increase its benefits. Use the less common parts of the animal also like the neck and organs. Use the skin and fat as well. If you are using beef or lamb, brown the meat first
    Put bones and parts into a stock pot or slow cooker and cover with water, preferable filtered water. Brown lamb and meat first. No need to brown chicken or fish. However, I usually cook a chicken in the oven or pressure cooker, remove the meat to use to eat and use the carcass for broth.
    Add 1-2 Tbl of Apple Cider Vinegar before cooking. This helps pull the ....
