There is increasing fear right now around the coronavirus and the flu. Every year there is significant media focus on the flu and this year, the coronavirus is the latest concern in the media. While the coronavirus can be quite serious, it usually causes mild to moderate upper-respiratory tract illnesses, like the common cold or flu.
From a prevention perspective, the fear that rises up from these alerts could possibly be more damaging to the body, and to the community, than the disease itself. As we make efforts to stay well this season, remember that fear suppresses the immune system and does not create empowerment for wellness and overall well-being.
Sometimes you accidentally make something so good and so nourishing that you have to get it up right away. This was one of those sometimes. Most of my recipes come from something that I have made forever and at some point I get asked for the recipe so many times that I just commit to writing the post!
This recipe was divine creation! I tasted it and wanted to drink that whole pot. Seriously.
I started with the intention to make my Vegan “Bone Stock”, but I had lots of beets and beet greens from the garden that needed to be used. My dad always makes his stock with beets and I love it, so I decided to throw them in. I also had extra nettles and a bunch of other leftover herbs from the summer. Then I started to throw in all of the other “extras” that I had. So, it began.
It turned into a deep red, nourishing, herbal goodness. I will be adding this broth to my cleansing and postpartum protocols. I am in love.
I’ve been making this yummy and super nourishing Peach Chicken and Mashed Sweet Potatoes for new mamas or people recovering from surgery. I make it especially when peaches are in season, but I have used frozen peaches many times with amazing results. This meal is so easy to digest, warming, and nourishing. Peaches are known to help rid the body of pain and decrease stagnation in the tissues. They are especially useful for clearing pain in the lower abdomen. Sweet potatoes help decrease toxicity in blood, increase milk supply, and help to decrease excessive fluid in the abdominal cavity. These recipes are great for any type of recovery when reserves are low and digestion may not be strong. I often hear that this meal is the first thing that the recipient was finally willing to eat after not having a good appetite! If you are bringing a meal to someone, consider bringing this one. Don’t forget to make enough for you. You’ll regret it if you don’t!
This is not an article to debate the vaccine issue.
If you are reading this article, you are likely vaccinating your children or yourself, or you are considering it.
This is an article to support parents to keep their children healthy. While this article is geared towards children, it is just as relevant and applicable for adults. Regardless of your belief system about vaccines, every adult and parent should know how to prepare for, and detoxify from, vaccines. I believe that we all want what’s best for our children and for ourselves!
This is simply a guide for healing and balance. A guide to prepare the body for vaccines and to detoxify the body after receiving vaccines. If you are vaccinating for any reason, consider adding a healing protocol to your plan and choices.
I've been thinking a lot about this one lately. It's something that keeps coming up for me over the years with my family and often with clients that are on their healing path. As people heal and get well, of course they want the same for their loved ones. I get questions like, “So what am I going to do about my kids? What am I going to do about my husband? They're still not eating well. What can I possibly do?” Or I hear, “I'm clearing out all this energy and I see things differently. What can I do about my partner?”
Many of us go there. I know that I have in the past.
