If we are happy and able to let go of negative feelings and anger. We can most likely can stay healthy and prevent or delay the onset of illness and diseases. If we are hold on to negative feelings or are living a stressful life, more often than not, these suppressed feelings can and will trigger physical and emotional illness programmed into our DNA.

Most of us are taught from a young age that in order to have good health we must take care of ourselves by eating the right foods, exercising and getting good restful sleep. However, as we get older and go about daily mundane tasks we often lose sight of  our ability to connect with our inner self. We become becoming “unconscious” and/or  “robotic”, performing in the same manner day after day.

How To Walk Each Day for Fat-Burning?How To Walk Each Day for Fat-Burning?

Do I Need to Chew 40 Times?

Do I Need to Chew 40 Times?Do I Need to Chew 40 Times?

Have you ever wonder why your mother used to tell you to chew your food all of the time? In most cases, your mother figured that you didn’t know how to chew your food properly and she worried that you were going to choke. This may be true, but there are other health benefits to chewing properly. It’s funny how these instructions are passed on from generation to generation, but no one can tell you why.

Most of us have forgotten how to properly chew our food because we are TOO BUSY. Hey, I am just as guilty as the next person.

We eat on the run. We forget to eat. We forget to chew! No wonder you feel like choking and you are looking for the glass of water before the hiccups start! Your breathing is not coinciding with your swallowing and all the sudden your diaphragm is contracting uncontrollably (the bottom line: you are swallowing more air than chewing) and you are struck with a case of hiccups. Want to avoid hiccupping? Easy—don’t eat or drink so fast! Get the picture?

Why Everyone Should Try Reflexology?

Why Everyone Should Try Reflexology?Why Everyone Should Try Reflexology?

Your thoughts and visualizations affect the world around you — starting with your body. If your goal is the best possible version of yourself, picture that person mind’s eye.

Your ability to imagine is most effective when you’re relaxed, so try visualizing your best self first thing in the morning and then again before you fall asleep at night.

And of course there’s always after a yoga, meditation, massage or reflexology session.

Reflexology soothes you into a state of deep rest and relaxation, where you are open to the suggestions you give yourself — much like in hypnosis.

Mother’s Day Tribute Poem

Mother’s Day Tribute PoemMother’s Day Tribute Poem

Most of us take our mothers for granted. (I admit I do.) We know that she is there but we may not devote as much time and attention to her as much as we want.

As a conscious practice, Mother’s Day forces us to stop and think of our mothers and all the women that have influenced us. This is the day for putting away our differences and taking the time to love and honor her, not only as a mother, but as a human being.

How Does Reiki Increase Your Energy Vibration and Why Does It Matter?

How Does Reiki Increase Your Energy Vibration and Why Does It Matter?How Does Reiki Increase Your Energy Vibration and Why Does It Matter?

Vibration is the frequency that our energy body resonates at.

We all feel and respond, to each others’ vibrations, even if we’re not aware of it. It is the reason why we may be drawn to certain people, or repelled by them.

But why should we care whether or not we are operating at a higher vibration?

Because the higher our vibration, the more aligned we are with our greater purpose, in touch with our higher selves, and living in our flow. And when that happens, we are most connected with our true selves, as well as with others, spreading light on a global (and even universal) scale.

Make Happiness Your Goal TODAY!

Make Happiness Your Goal TODAY!Make Happiness Your Goal TODAY!

Do you think waiting for what you want will make you happy?

One of the things I noticed about being happy and getting happy is that they are NOT interchangeable. We think by waiting for something—perfect job, perfect marriage, lose that 20 pounds, get that diamond bracelet, whatever—those things or events in our lives are going to make us happy.

An important lesson I have learned on my journey that things we accumulate do not give us the lasting “happiness” we are seeking.

Yes, we find happiness through our comforts: a partner who will love and support us the way we want to be loved, the right house in the right neighborhood, children that you will love and devote your time to, a job that will give you satisfaction, and good health. You may be one of those people who are fortunate enough to obtain those “necessities” that supposedly make you happy, healthy and employable. But something still doesn’t feel right, and it nags at you.

Sour Cream Apple Custard Pie – Recipe

Sour Cream Apple Custard Pie – RecipeSour Cream Apple Custard Pie – Recipe

This is a slightly tangy and sweet, incredibly rich, apple pie.  The pie has layers of complexities that appeal to all the taste sensations.  The apple cider pie crust is rich and flaky but has the added flavor of apple cider. The filling tastes familiar, soft and tender with a sour tang, and the topping is a lovely walnut strudel crunch.  This pie does take some time to make, but you will be rewarded with an incredible pie that you will include in your holiday menu. There are four parts to making this recipe, the pie crust, peel and slice apples, custard and the topping.

In most of my recipes, gluten-free flour is interchangeable with regular flour, but that is not the case here. This pie taste better made with regular gluten four. The gluten-free version changes the pie crust texture significantly, and makes the pie crust difficult to roll out due to lack of elasticity. so I continue to work on a gluten-free, pie crust recipe.

What are the Benefits of Turkey?

What are the Benefits of Turkey?What are the Benefits of Turkey?

Thanksgiving Turkey!Yes, I am sorry to report that the Food of the Month is not “stuffing.” Cuz who doesn’t love stuffing? However, as yummy as it is, it is definitely not a nutrient-dense, health-building food. So let’s talk turkey. Folks, protein is the building block of the body. A moderate 4-ounce serving of turkey has about 35 grams of high-quality protein, as well as lots of heart-healthy potassium, plenty of phosphorus, and small amounts of calcium, magnesium, and iron. Gobble, gobble! (Yes, that’s a pun…a fairly lame one, but feel free to chuckle.)

And check this out. Four ounces of turkey breast meat has about 30 mcg of selenium and the dark meat has about 45 mcg! The RDI for selenium is 70 mcg, but 200 mcg is a good target for optimal health. The almighty mineral selenium is a powerful antioxidant and is associated with lower rates of cancer. Turkey is also a great source of niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and zinc. Holy nutritional bonanza, Batman!

Build Your Immunity For the Upcoming Winter Months Now with Reflexology!Build Your Immunity For the Upcoming Winter Months Now with Reflexology!

Did you know that 70-80% of all of your immunity cells are located in and around the intestinal tract? Did you know…

  • Your small intestines are lined with mucus that is produced by special cells in your small intestine. The mucus is a barrier to bacteria, viruses and yeast.
  • Your intestinal mucus also supports friendly bacteria known as probiotics and is your first line of pathogen defense.
  • The major lymph node centers are located in your small intestinal, groin, armpits and throat. Your lymph nodes can identify potential pathogens and start to create antibodies to fight off the pathogens. You can say that your lymph nodes are your first line of attack against pathogens.

Did You Know Most People Don’t Walk Properly?

Did You Know Most People Don’t Walk Properly?Did You Know Most People Don’t Walk Properly?

As a Reflexologist, I am always watching people’s gaits (the way they walk). A gait is the manner, or style of walk, and there are many types.

Walking is one of the earliest skills we develop growing up. You would think that walking was simple, but it’s not, as many people do not portray the proper posture when walking.

Some walking styles can cause the body to become unaligned, which can develop into pain or body aches down the road.
