Breast Cancer: Who’s Really At Risk?

Breast Cancer: Who’s Really At Risk?

A recent headline in the New York Times read, “Breast Cancer Drugs Urged for Healthy High-Risk Women.” It immediately caught my attention and made me think, “wait a minute – healthy women are not high risk!” Unfortunately, the conventional medical establishment often becomes so focused on curing one specific disease that they forget that a true state of health comes about by treating the whole body and mind.

Having Awe for our Awesomeness

The Power of our Thoughts Our human body is a miraculous and mysterious form. It’s estimated that there are well over two billion daily functions that the body performs without us ever consciously asking it to do so. It’s also estimated that the average human being processes at a conscious level over 20,000 thoughts a…

Hawaii Digestive Health

Hawaii Digestive Health Your digestive system is one of the most important systems in your whole body! If you are not able to properly digest and absorb nutrients and eliminate waste products, then it’s nearly impossible to achieve optimal health.

Spend Time with Nature

Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

One of the greatest of life’s pleasures is the enjoyment of nature. Even if it is only for 15 to 20 minute walk in a park or along a river, or perhaps in your own garden, we all need time away from the hustle and bustle of the daily demands from work, family; and the environment: noise, pollutants, crowds, phones, television, traffic, concrete, and steel.

When we go out into nature, we can commune with the elements, connect with the primal force, and listen to the sounds of life.

Become the conductor of your own health – learn the secret of lymph!

Everyone knows that they have a skeletal system and a muscular system – that’s what we use to move. We know we have a respiratory system that helps us breath, a cardiovascular system that pumps blood throughout the body and a nervous system that helps regulate our response to our environment. But that’s not all you need to know… 

The lymphatic system is equally crucial for our health and wellbeing. It helps maintain healthy blood and detoxify the body. Without a lymphatic system, the waste produced from daily activities would accumulate in our bodies, causing disease and ultimately death. 

The Power of Wheatgrass

The Power of Wheatgrass

Starting the day with an ounce of wheatgrass juice is one of the most powerful habits you can get into to jumpstart your health. Wheatgrass has antioxidant and antibacterial properties that help cleanse your digestive system, your blood and your skin. In it’s fresh form, wheatgrass assists the body in neutralizing toxins, aids the pancreas in glucose regulation and rejuvenates cells.

Although three ounces of wheatgrass contains a fair amount of vitamin A, calcium, magnesium and other nutrients, the main source of its healing benefits comes from chlorophyll.

The Best Way to Start the Day

The Best Way to Start the Day

After a night of sleep, the best and most delightful way to get your digestive juices flowing is to eat one of nature’s perfect foods: fruit. Fresh fruit are the best way to start your day because they are easy to digest, so you can ease your body into the day and avoid a shock to your system first thing in the morning.

Fruit is composed of simple sugars, many vitamins and minerals and lots of water that assimilate into the body very quickly. This allows the body to remain in its detoxification mode longer, rather than demanding heavy digestive processes first thing in the morning.

Give yourself permission to embrace health

The most powerful way to resolve old physical and emotional hurts might be as simple as giving yourself permission to move on. Fear may be holding you back from experiencing complete health, but what do you do after you’ve begun to let go of those fears? When you let fear go, what takes its place? Just like we spoke last week about directly addressing our fears, “On the road to health, start by letting go of fears”, try actively inviting health and well-being into your body and mind.

Avoiding the Holiday Belly Bulge and Blues

Its that Time of Year Again!

We know the routine… we get the children back to school, and before you know it, it is time to shop for Halloween candy! What a set up! Next, Thanksgiving, Christmas and low and behold, we are back to the same old drone of weight gain and belly bulge. It happen’s every year, like an endless cycle.

Hormone Imbalance Symptoms

Over the last 100 years as we have doubled our life expectancy, the soft tissue glands which create our hormones are being forced to produce them longer than ever. Our increasingly stressful lives, worsening nutrition and lack of proper fitness combine to result in declining levels of hormones in our bodies.  Both men and women over 40 experience these changes, whether mild or drastic, and each symptom affects the whole body in so many ways.  When in balance, the body functions like a finely tuned instrument.  When out of balance, there is disharmony and chaos within the system, as well as in other aspects of one’s life.
