  • A Divine Dialogue

    Knock, Knock… (Playful, but not a joke) Who’s there? The Divine. Oh, wow, hello. I’ve been knocking for a while now, hoping we can have a Divine Dialogue. Did you not hear me? Well, sure, I’ve been trying to meditate, but it’s not always easy. What part isn’t easy? I don’t know, my thoughts are […]

  • Stringing Pearls for Health

    One pearl is beautiful on it’s own.  Many pearls strung together makes a strand.  A strand of pearls is classic, elegant, prized, and aptly…signifies wisdom acquired through experience. What do pearls have to do with health? Excellent health is cultivated by a series of healthy decisions over time. String a bunch of good decisions together […]

  • Beauty Beyond Botox

    I really love natural beauty. I also love the look of a woman aging with grace and not fighting the natural changes that come with that process. As well, I have no judgement if a woman chooses to ‘enhance’ her process. As with everything though, there is a line. Over the line and enhancements turn […]

  • The Balance of Nutrients

    There are generally two types of nutrients.  Macro-nutrients and Micro-nutrients.  The macro-nutrients are: Protein (meat, eggs, poultry, fish, cheese etc.) Carbohydrates (grains, legumes, potatoes, squash, fruit, sugar etc.) Fat (butter, coconut oil, olive oil, seeds, nuts, avocados, saturated fat etc.)

  • Eat Real Food

    I LOVE how Chinese Medicine helps us understand how a body works.  When you are born, you have a full tank of “Qi”.  Qi is your life force.  It’s what beats your heart, pumps your blood, digests your food, and constantly makes repairs that you’ll never see. So it’s a full tank for your journey […]

  • Getting Rid of Sugar!

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stopped eating sugar in my adult life.  Many times.  I always feel so good when it’s out of my system, more energy, clearer thinking, easy to keep weight off, better sleep.  But then I’d have a cookie, or a bite of chocolate, and it would be downhill […]

  • Removing the Blocks to Your Health

    Last post we talked about metabolism and the 9 steps to recovering healthy metabolism.  Here is the list:  Remove all blocks to eating in ways that support your body, mind, emotions, and spirit.  Stop eating sugar (there are ways to satisfy your sweet tooth but it can’t be on poor quality sugared treats).  Replace ALL […]

  • What Your Body & Metabolism Needs…

    There’s lots of metabolic action happening in your cells, but mostly what you might think of when you hear the word “metabolism” is how easy, or not, it is to lose weight.  So let’s focus on that aspect of metabolism for now because it happens to influence the rest of your body’s metabolism. In Chinese […]

  • Is Your Health Blueprint Awake or Asleep?

    You were born programmed to be healthy.  Your body knows exactly what to do for health to flourish.  You were born with a blueprint for health.  Allow me to explain why your health blueprint is really important. As a healthcare provider for over 20 years, I’ve watched the overall quality of health decline and this […]

  • How to Build Qi

    In the Traditional Chinese Medical (TCM) model we support our Qi (which is our energy, vitality and life force) in two ways. The first is via breath.  The reason breath is understood as so important in TCM is because it provides oxygen to our body carried in the air via our breath.  The second way […]
