Do you read me? I want to know!

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.

The importance of a healthy gut in achieving a healthy life

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?

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!

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?

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.

The benefits of Omega 3s to your overall health.

Omega 3s have been shown to benefit heart, joint, brain, eye, skin, nerve, hair and nail health! The biggest difference between Omegas 3s and Omega 6s, is that Omega 3s are known to be anti-inflammatory, whereas Omega 6s are inflammatory. We cannot make either of them ourselves in our body, and yet we need them or we’ll get sick, which is why they are called Essential Fatty Acids, we have to get them from our food sources or good quality supplements.

Are your gut issues an indication of leaky gut?

What is leaky gut? It is a condition that occurs when the lining of our gut, which is only 1 cell thick, gets small tears in it, and food gets through these tears and into the bloodstream. Every time we eat wheat, we will get little tears in our gut, as the hybridized wheat we now eat, that was developed to produce larger crops even in a drought year, unfortunately causes this damage to our gut. Our body is designed to self heal, BUT it can’t keep up, if we keep damaging it with every meal, 3 times / day, 7 days /week, all year long.

What's more important your health or your car?

I had someone say to me the other day, after I completed a talk about the micro-biome “Why wouldn’t we invest in our health, after all we spend money on the health of our cars all the time”.

I thought that was a great comment, but it also highlighted some of the reasons people haven’t been investing in their health so far.

A simple 3 minute energy boost to start your day

We all know that waking up on the wrong side of the bed and getting a rushed start to the day where you’re racing out the house with un-brushed teeth AND glugging down your coffee in the car is a bad sign.
