Simple Steps to Detoxify for Spring

Posted by on Tue, May 16, 2017

Our society is increasingly exposed to toxins that are a significant contributor to the rise in chronic illness and disease. Unfortunately, the rate of toxicity in our society is much higher than it was when our parents were growing up. This means that we need to be more vigilant and diligent in terms of detoxifying our bodies and leading a healthy lifestyle.

Toxins in our environment include:

  • foods grown with pesticides
  • poor quality water
  • exhaust fumes from autos & airplanes
  • electromagnetic radiation from phones, computers & wireless devices
  • commercial household cleansers
  • mold and chemicals in our homes
  • personal care products (cosmetics, shampoo, deodorant) that contain harmful ingredients such as aluminum
  • mercury amalgam fillings

Health Benefits of Green Juicing

Posted by on Mon, Oct 03, 2016

Most of us do not eat enough vegetables each day. One of the best ways to consume more vegetables is to drink them!

Drinking raw, green juice first thing in the morning can give you and your family a natural energy boost without resorting to stimulants like coffee.

What is Subtle Energy and How Does it Affect My Body?

Posted by on Mon, Sep 14, 2015

You are already an expert in subtle energy, but you probably do not yet know it.

Have you ever attended a ball game or sporting event and “felt the excitement in the air?”

Most people have felt that feeling of excitement in the air somewhere. Interestingly, no one had to tell you that what you were feeling was “excitement,” because the energy itself sends the message, and you are intuitively programmed to feel it and to know what that it is “excitement in the air.”

Have you ever been in a room, perhaps at a meeting, in which the tension was so thick, that as the very old saying goes, “You could have cut the tension with a knife?” No one had to tell you that this was tension that you were feeling. No one had to explain the difference between how excitement feels and how tension feels. You just knew it, and could feel it in your body.
