Ways to Help Support Your Body with 5G Technology

Mar 30, 2020
Is 5G affecting your health?

Technology is certainly amazing and we all appreciate how useful it can be, especially with businesses. However, it has an awful downside to our health - but there are ways to help support your body against the harmful effects of modern technology, including 5G.

There are thousands of studies that have shown this 5G technology has a wide variety of serious affects on our biology from our nervous system to our reproductive system, our hearts and brains. The US Government has conducted some safety testing of cell phones as much as several millimeters away from the head at which distance radiation is not nearly as intense and damaging as when the phone is held at the head.  For every millimeter held away from the head, radiation decreases by 50%. So, turn it off and keep the phone out of your bedroom at night when you sleep!

What I Use to Boost My Immune System & Fight Viruses

Mar 05, 2020

In our house, it’s all about prevention and preparation each cold and flu season. With the coronavirus looming around in full speed in the media right now, people are even more concerned about getting sick - especially after the flu ran rampant more than ever! 

Here are the current products that my husband and I are loading up on.

*As always, check with your Doctor if you have any concerns or health issues. This is for educational purposes always!

Renew Life

Every Fall, we kick off with a gentle gut cleanse with Renew Life and a Activate with Modere. I would say no more than 1 or 2 times a year for a cleanse is enough, unless your doctor directs you differently.

Why the Gut?

Well this is where the immune system, bacteria and viruses meet! A huge proportion of your immune system is actually in your GI tract and if your microbiome is off - then your system is down. Your gut wall houses 70% of the cells that make up your immune system. You might not attribute digestive...

Fermentation: Not just for Physical Health

Mar 04, 2020
History of Fermentation

Fermentation, also known as culturing, is all down to microbes. Microbes can be found everywhere on Earth, including the soil that grows your food, your home and inside your own body! In fact - they outnumber the cells in our bodies 10 to 1!

While some play a role in causing disease, many do good things and protect you from illness. The key is getting the balance just right for optimal health. The term fermentation comes from the Latin verb ‘fervere’, which means "to boil." This term describes what happens when yeast converts fruit juice (for wine) or malted grain (for beer) into alcohol, among other bi-products. 

Almost every culture appears to have embraced fermentation for millennia. People have been teaming up with natural microbes for much longer than we know! However we also have evidence that other cultures, like ancient Chinese, were using fermentation for other grain based beverages like rice wine as long ago as 4000 BC. ...

5 Benefits of L-Theanine

Mar 04, 2020
L-Theanine - The Anxiety Buster

What is L-Theanine?

L-theanine, a water-soluble, non-protein amino acid commonly found in green tea and some mushrooms, has been widely studied for its ability to encourage wakeful relaxation without sedation. 

1) L-THEANINE CAN HELP REDUCE ANXIETY AND STRESS
Anxiety can be one of the most difficult emotions and mental states we struggle with. For some of us, it’s short lived and occasional. For others among us, anxiety is a very real and very difficult mood disorder that takes over one's life.

In general, l-theanine could be of surprising help and support for anxiety. The anti-anxiety effect of l-theanine is achieved through enhanced alpha brain wave activity and increased synthesis of GABA. Increased GABA, in turn, increases brain levels of dopamine and serotonin, resulting in general feelings of calm and well-being. Changes in brain electrical activity measured by EEG are dose-dependent, and are similar to beneficial EEG changes...

Cozy Homemade Dinner for Two + Gratitude Craft

Jan 28, 2020
Can't Go Out this Valentine's Day? No Problem! 

There is nothing cozier than spending Valentine’s Day at home with the one you love and not to mention how this can spark connection better than going out! If you have little children, you can plan a romantic dinner for two after they are in bed - which is something my husband and I do all year round from time to time.

If you are just dating or engaged you can do the same!  Eating in is cozy, but the real fun is in actually making a meal together.

Cooking & Togetherness

Cooking together brings a sense of togetherness and closeness as you chat and mix together. The kitchen is the heart of the home and invites a couple to create, experiment, taste, smell, touch and visually make a meal that is colorful and nutritious - while getting to know each other in a new, creative way. 

Cooking together not only promotes connection - but also joy and well-being. You can't beat the health benefits of a healthy...

Why You Need a Weighted Blanket in Your Life?

Jan 17, 2020
The Craze Behind Weighted Blankets

For years, many people did not know that weighted blankets existed, and those who did - had to choose from a very limited and expensive selection...until now! The gossip and whispers about this hefty bedding gave way to what is now a ton of media coverage.

It started with celebrities who raved about weighted blankets, retail stores nationwide began selling variations of the heavy sheets, and by the end of 2018,  weighted blankets were on practically every gift guide on the internet. 

Finally!

For decades, weighted blankets were used by a small community to treat children with autism and adults with PTSD and other conditions. The blankets purportedly work by using deep-pressure therapy – similar to the comfort created by swaddling babies or getting deep-tissue massages – to create more restful sleep.

4 Reasons Choice is Powerful

Dec 27, 2019
An Excerpt from Just Be
“After the game, we went out to eat and sat on a patio at a restaurant on the harbor, talking until they closed for the night. We held hands as we walked down Boston’s cobbled stone streets, quietly watching everyone around us. I couldn’t believe the relationship we were forming. It was so incredible and I lost myself in it. Our love felt like a big band-aid on my damaged heart. I was hoping it would be the band-aid I needed to finally end all of the pain I had been suffering with. It was certainly doing a good job slowing my anxiety down. Or so I thought. Finally, we hailed a cab and went home.
The rest of the summer under the stars with him, brought more talks and greater love. I even moved upstairs and lived with him by the end of the summer. Things were moving at warp speed, but to us, it was a long time coming. We didn’t care about timing or the pace of our relationship. Time stood still when I was with him. We had decided to...
