Research has found that taking over the counter drugs can lead to gut barrier dysfunction—and may ultimately cause more pain long-term. Here are some tips and tricks to take the pain away with a natural/holistic approach.

Change YOUR Word(s) = I Need “Easy”…

Change YOUR Word(s) = I Need “Easy”…

I get these kinds of text message all the time, “I need to figure out what to cook I need so easy recipes.”

Right after I read that kind of text, the first thing that pops in my head is, “Simple is the New ‘Easy‘”

My Perspective…

The opposite of Easy is HARD! When something is HARD it takes great effort. Why? Because you may lack a few things… Skills, Confidence, Clarity to name a few.

When things become ‘Easy’ it’s because things became simple. When things are simple it’s because you have the necessary Skills, Confidence, Clarity to make it simple.

Think about something simple in […] Read more

Keep Your Bones Strong With No Dairy CPM …..

Keep Your Bones Strong With No Dairy CPM …..

One of the most common concerns I hear for not giving up dairy is that by doing so, you will put the health of your bones at risk, primarily due to insufficient calcium. I was talking with my friend who is newly pregnant, and one of her biggest fears was getting enough calcium without drinking milk. I explained to her that i have not had milk since I was 6 years old and my bones are stronger than ever.

I get my calcium from other resources and it has paid off big time!

Here are four very simple ways to keep your […] Read more

What is the MAIN Ingredient of our Upcoming Challenge…

What is the MAIN Ingredient of our Upcoming Challenge…

In regards to being healthy and FIT; I really feel most people know what to do. So why do they feel they are not in ‘good enough shape’?

 

Once you reach a certain level of knowledge and experience, the missing link is no longer a new exercise program, the perfect nutrition plan, or a new supplement to try.

The one thing you’re missing is this: being accountable—to someone or something—for your workouts and nutrition.

“Accountability is the acknowledgment of responsibility for your actions with the obligation to report, explain, and be responsible for the resulting consequences.”

In other words, accountability keeps you consistent […] Read more
