Celery Juice Can Save Your Life!!!!

Those that know me, know that I love, love, love, celery juice and that I tell everybody about it.

Yesterday, I ran across this short video with some awesome testimonials from some people who have had tremendous benefits from drinking straight celery juice. Many of them completely off of all of their medications!

Have a listen here:

I Was So Saddened today!

meds

Today I went to the Shoppers Drug Mart website to look for something and I saw this picture. I was astounded at this number! Two Hundred and Forty Three tons of medication that was brought back, as in unused, expired or discarded for whatever reason. Why I was so shocked is that this is just the number that was brought back! Imagine then how much is consumed by people?

I am not against medication by any means, it has a purpose and a place and is an important part of health and wellness care, but I was instantly jolted into how big this industry really is and saddened that there are so many people on all of these medications. Something is wrong with this picture. I am sure you would agree, that life should not be this way!

I googled  and 243 tonnes is 486,000 pounds of meds! OMG! And this is just in Canada I am assuming.

I will continue to do my part to help people learn natural ways to add more nutrition, more JOY, more nature, more laughter, and more healthy additions into their lives so they can improve their health and peace of mind in a way more so the way nature intended it to be.

The link mentioned above also stated that 375,000 Canadian teens have abused
prescription drugs and 55% got them from a home!   If we can get people healthier with less emphasis on prescription drugs, can you see the impact it would have on our children also?

Let’s all do our part by continuing to work on improving our personal health and leading the way for our children and the future children of the world.

Glorious and Grand – Ginger!

ginger-1714196_1920 (1)

Ginger is used in numerous forms, including fresh, dried, pickled, preserved, crystallized, candied, and powdered or ground. The flavor is somewhat peppery and slightly sweet, with a strong and spicy aroma. I have found that people either love it or hate it, but with that said, if we realize how amazing it is for us, it would be wise to learn to love it yes?. 🙂

Ginger has been purported to exert a variety of powerful therapeutic and preventive effects and has been used for thousands of years for the treatment of hundreds of ailments from colds to cancer.

It is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo. Ginger can also help to alleviate menstrual cramps, nausea, heartburn, migraines, sore throats, exhaustion, fatigue, and constipation and it is great in providing relief from the stomach flu and food poisoning according to Anthony Williams, The Medical Medium.

Anthony also states that ginger also contains potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols and is a powerful painkiller which makes it especially beneficial for those who suffer with joint, muscle, and nerve pain. Ginger has incredible immune-boosting and germ fighting abilities and has even been shown to help provide protection and relief from E.coli, Staph infections, and Candida albicans.

In ancient times, ginger was highly regarded as a spiritual cleanser and used before and during holy days as a way to awaken and purify the body, mind, and spirit. Fresh ginger is one of the most potent ways to receive its health benefits. Try making a liter of ginger water or tea everyday by adding freshly grated ginger in water and let steep for 10-20 minutes. Adding some raw honey and fresh squeezed lemon juice will enhance its flavor and add to its protective and healing properties.

Fresh ginger is also excellent juiced with apples and celery for an energizing and immune boosting drink. Using fresh ginger in any of your cooking or preparing of food will also provide healing benefits and should be added whenever possible. If you find fresh ginger too strong for your liking, then try using ginger in powder, capsule, tea, or tincture form that can be found online or in your local health food store.

I personally am looking for more ways to add this feisty plant, from a plant family that includes cardamom and turmeric, into my daily diet. Today, for example, I threw in some chopped fresh ginger root, fresh chopped turmeric, chopped apples, cinnamon, maple syrup and honey into a slow cooker with water. It’s gently brewing right now and I can’t wait to try it. I will strain it and drink it like a warm and soothing tea with benefits. 🙂 So many good ingredients in there! My body and soul are going to love it!

Trust in Healing

sunsetred

Just as the sun rises and sets every day of our entire lives, so does our ability to recreate ourselves anew each and everyday!

Every time you look at either a sunrise or a sunset, reflect on the power of this to teach us trust. We can trust the sun will rise again. We can trust that we are given a new day. If you are struggling with chronic illness or pain, trust in a new day. A new day always promises HOPE. A new day means there are new cures, new advancements, new stories of miraculous healings, and new opportunities for healing and growth.

Let the sun be your beautiful reminder of the trust and hope in a new day and all that that implies.

Healing Though Your Story

pretty-woman-1509956_1920

“If you own the story you get to write the ending.”
Brene Brown

When it comes to our health, a big key, to personal healthy empowerment is in realizing
1) there is always HOPE and
2) WE are a key proponent in our own health care

As Brene Brown’s quote states ‘you get to write the ending’. As a Life Coach and Nutritionist, I hear often people telling a story about their health that would be better left untold, if truth be told. 🙂 It is easy when in pain or suffering, to lose hope and to tell a story that stems from the pain and hopelessness.

If you are suffering, I encourage you to start sharing a new story and envisioning your own happy ending. Some useful phrases might be:

. Everyday my body is getting stronger
. Everyday new research is happening and helping with healing
. In the past I was very sick, but now I am getting better and stronger everyday!
. I believe in miracles and know that I am deserving of one
. I love my body and am showing my body through supporting it to support me!
. My body is always working for my highest good even though I don’t understand it all

These are just a few ideas to add to you daily ‘story’. I would love to hear the ones that you come up with.
