Are you Ready for a Fall Kick-Start to Wellness?

For me, Fall is a time of new beginnings. As a child, back to school meant new classes, new friends, new opportunities. As a mother, it meant more structure and needed discipline to meet busy schedules.

The summer heat wanes and encourages us to focus inward. It's a great time for nourishing savory soups and kitchari. Fall foods prepare us for the winter season and can protect us from seasonal allergies.

Individuals and families today have more stressors than ever in our history. This week I spoke with a client in Houston as well as a doctor I consult with about the effects of Harvey on their lives and their businesses. We have unprecedented physical and emotional challenges from the floods to the assault on our brains and bodies due to increasing toxins in our food, water and air. It is hard not to turn on the news and worry about the health of our country. Many feel anxious about the state of affairs.

When I graduated from nursing school in 1981 there were only a few autoimmune diseases, now there are well over a 100. Autoimmune disease, cancer, autism, ADHD, Aspergers and Alzheimer's have all risen dramatically.   

What has changed dramatically in my lifetime? (Our genes haven't, only the expression of them). Specifically, we've seen a dramatic:
  1.  Increase in consumption of non-food items; an estimated 600,000 products in the grocery store stored in a box or a can that our ancestors would not recognize. If they can sit on the shelf and the bugs won't eat them, why do we think we can? 
  2. Thousands of new chemicals and toxins added to our food and environment every year, none of them tested in synergy with other toxins. (please read this section in my book). We've known about this since 1962 when Rachel Carlson published Silent Spring.
When we are in fear mode, we often fail to make the most loving choices. Love is the antithesis to fear. So my quest and challenge to you is to practice self-loving, life-affirming actions.  EAT, THINK & THRIVE

We know that toxicity and inflammation is the root cause of all chronic dis-ease.  So how do we maximize nutrition and minimize toxicity and inflammation?

Take time to get to rediscover what your unique body needs. 

Use curiosity to turn fear and overwhelm into empowerment. 

Join us for my Kick-Start to Wellness Program.  Make conscious choices that will yield more energy and less stress. Join us for weekly educational webinars and support to bring in positive actions and prepare you for the fall and winter season.

Optimal health is not complicated but if you could have found it on your own you would have done it already. We are social beings and studies show that our health and longevity is determined by the people we surround ourselves with. Join our community to consciously choose constructive change.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
Introductory Webinar is Thursday, September 21st followed by three Wellness Wednesday Webinar sessions.
