"Life DOESN'T work, until you DO"
"Life DOESN'T work, until you DO." Latesha summarized a valuable lesson she had learned from a recent encounter with adversity. We laughed together, struck by Latesha's ability to communicate wisdom so simply and elegantly.
"Do you know what you just did?" I asked her. "You demonstrated, once again, that you have the gift of perspective. You just taught me something about life."
When you send out negative opinions you ALWAYS feel it in your own body first
Staying healthy is more important than ever considering the rising rates of cancer and chronic disease in our world - not to mention the expense of healthcare and the emotional fallout. While I personally have healthy nutrition habits and exercise regularly, I do very little specific teaching on what supplements to take or what exercise routine one should be on.
I tend to come from the core of what makes us stay healthy or get sick - mindset. Yes, even disease is related to how you think and feel. In fact, it can make or break you and holistic/integrative physicians already get this.
Do you have trouble sleeping or find it really hard to relax?
Do you feel overwhelmed by people and things in your life? I am not surprised. Most people I coach are so stressed out they don't know whether they are coming or going.
A lot of them sleep badly or not at all. Their eating habits are out of control. Many find it a struggle to maintain or lose weight. They also feel like life is passing them by, that they lack the time, energy, confidence or motivation to do everything they need to do. They spend their days and weeks running around like headless chickens, frustrated and angry with things, people and themselves, only to finally break down in front of me.
Fasting with honey water makes a lot sense to me
I first learned about fasting with honey from a Chinese book on slimming, authored by a Taiwanese. After my discovery of honey benefits in late 2006, I did my very first honey fast and gained a newfound respect for my body.
Now taking just honey and water has become a regime for me; I do it several times a year to cleanse the stomach and intestine, and detoxify the body system. While fasting with honey water is kind of unheard of in most countries, it is very popular in Taiwan and Japan.
Hey Mom! Have You Ever Looked At All Those Bottles Of Water At The Supermarket That Are Competing For Your Hard Earned Dollar And Wondered How They Got There?
It wasn't that long ago that we all drank tapwater without a second thought. What's changed?
Well, when it comes to the safety of your tapwater here in the Washington metro area, the answer is not much! Water utilities in the city and surrounding suburbs test their product - tapwater - every day. Tapwater in this part of the country routinely meets federal safety standards for various concentrations, including lead. With the exception of a few brief and well publicized periods, tapwater in this part of the country was safe to drink when you were a kid, and it's safe to drink now!
