The importance of a healthy gut in achieving a healthy life
I’ve been blogging weekly for about 10 months now, and I really don’t love it! I try to put out helpful information, but I wonder if anyone even reads it, likes it, sees it? I wonder if the time I spend doing it, is worth it, or if I should be spending that time doing something I enjoy alot more, like coaching! Or maybe I need to find a different way to brand my business and reach potential clients, in need of support a non judgemental ear, so they can achieve their better self.
Sugar is in everything....what can you do about it?
We are now hearing the word micro-biome alot more frequently, and it is referring to the living eco-system of microbes, bacteria, fungi living in your body, working very hard to keep your body functioning optimally. Our main micro-biome is in our gut, and houses 70% of our immune system, but our skin ,our respiratory system, our brain all have their own “micro-biomes” as well, all communicating back to the the micro-biome in our gut.
Drugs that mask symptoms vs real healing - which solution do you want?
These days, sugar does seem to be in everything, whether it be 16g (4 teaspoons of sugar) in a small container of apple juice we send to school with our kids, to the 9g in 3/4 cup of Honey Nut Cheerios or 4g in one tablespoon of ketchup. Ketchup? Why does ketchup need sugar?
Why you may not want to reach for antacids to help with gut issues anymore.....
There has been more and more conversation recently in regards to antibiotics and how they mask symptoms and wreak havoc with our micro-biome, as well as an uprising of functional medicine doctors who seek to help people actually find the root cause of their illness. It isn’t so much about naming it, but in understanding the triggers, because only then can we actually begin the healing journey.
Get your "Move On" this spring and summer!
Antacids are the 3rd highest over the counter medicines sold in the US today. Gut issues anyone? Yes, more and more people are struggling with gut issues, and as such they reach for what they think is helping them.
But it’s not….it is masking the pain in the short term, but not fixing the problem, and in the long run it is making their gut problems worse. Why?
Here is a coffee that boosts your cognitive function, and has an anti aging effect on your brain!
Sometimes the word “exercise” sounds like work, so I like to call it “movement” instead. What is movement?
It’s any activity that’s fun for you and gets your body moving!
Your body is made to move.
Therefore, movement is actually a type of fuel for your body, just like food.
It stimulates and generates energy and good moods, plus it’s a fun way to get outside and connect with old and new friends.
Do you really need to detox?
Do you LOVE coffee? If so, why not drink one that actually has a myriad of health benefits for you. We all know too much coffee can negatively impact your sleep cycle and circadian rhythm, making it hard for you to fall asleep, and then you wake up feeling exhausted, and NEED that first cup of coffee (or two or three) to really get going in your day. Is that you? If so, we should talk, so I can help you break that habit! BUT if you like to start your day with 1 coffee, and want it to be a really good coffee, that has benefits for your brain, consider RISE by Allysian!
The benefits of a cruise holiday on your health!
You might have learned in HS Biology how our human body has it’s own built in methods of ridding toxins from our body, and it does, but what happens when our kidneys and liver are overflowing like a garbage can with toxins, and just can’t keep up? Chronic illness, cancers, kidney disease are some of the resulting conditions that can result from our body becoming overwhelmed with toxins.
How does this happen, after all our body is such an intricate and wonderful system, meant to self-heal? The problem is that the number of toxins introduced into our atmosphere has increased at a far more rapid rate, than which our body is capable of adapting to new environments. Since the Industrial Revolution, 80,000 toxins have been introduced into our world. The umbilical cord of a new born baby has over 287 known toxins in it. (Dr Mark Hyman, Broken Brain 2, April 2019). 100 years ago, these chemicals just didn’t exist. We can’t see or smell them, but they have a massive impact on our body and therefore our health.
Lead a busy life? Here's a guaranteed way to boost your energy and your longevity....
I regularly reframe “self care” for my clients and during talks, explaining it is the MOST SELFLESS thing you can do, as when you look after yourself first, you give the world the BEST of you, not what’s LEFT of you!
In this day and age of being bombarded by stress and toxins, threatening our gut health, brain health and immune system, wouldn’t it be nice to have a solution that is quick and easy, and gives our body the nourishment in truly needs and more? Introducing Genesis!
