#46: Be Sure to Pack Your Bag

People ask me all the time what I eat when I travel.  It is simple, I pack some healthy, hearty snacks and always have a clean protein in my bag. Here are my favorites

#45: Get Supercharged!

Here is why we all should be doing some form of grounding or earthing

#44: No Gym Required

Are you aware that regular movement reduces all-cause mortality? And that you don't need to be working out hard in a gym to reap the health benefits from movement?

#43: Orange🍊 You Getting Variety?

You have heard me stress the importance of the variety because the different colors have concentrations of different phytonutrients. Orange foods are no exception!

#42: Sometimes the Most Simple is Overlooked!

You likely know that your body is made up of 60% water.  But do you pay attention to how much water you take in every day?

#41: Is There Spring In Your Step?

Stop normalizing your symptoms! I get really frustrated that we are so trained to chalk decline to "just getting older".

#40: It's Time To Bounce Back!

You may already know that I like big results with less effort. And, I like getting multiple results with one activity.  This is why one of my favorite pieces of home equipment is a rebounder.

#39: Could Toxic Mold Be Making You Sick?

I often share that mold/mycotoxin toxicity was one of the triggers for my autoimmunity. Do you think it could be contributing to yours?

#38: Don't Be Fooled!

Many food products are marketed in a misleading way. Just because something is labeled to target "healthy" shoppers, it doesn't mean it's free of inflammatory ingredients.

#37: Rolling in Laughter

Is it true that laughter is the best medicine? Yes, it is!

#36: If You Only Do ONE Thing…

No matter your specific eating plan, moving to a whole-food-based diet is my universal recommendation. But how can you tell if something is whole-food-based?

#35: There Truly is No Limit!

I am sharing my most recent experience because it is my mission to let you know that your body is designed to heal, and no matter how you feel today, tomorrow may bring you a life beyond your wildest dreams!

#34: Create the 2022 You Desire

I am not a fan of New Year's resolutions. Most people make resolutions that they don't stick with, and even make the same ones year after year. That can be counter productive!

#33: A Gift for You

Do you want to take charge of your autoimmune health in 2022? If so, I have a special gift just for you to wrap up this holiday season and start the new year stronger than ever!

#32: The Scents of the Season

It is impossible to get away from it. Every store seems to be full of the scents of the holidays. Did you know those fragrances are bad for you?

#31: You Can Finish Strong!

With the holidays upon us, it feels like 2021 is just about over. But… there is still time to make progress on your goals!

#30: Giving Thanks is Good for Your Health

One of the BEST things you can do for your health is practice gratitude.

#29: Thriving Through the Holidays

It is so easy to get run down and overwhelmed in this last several weeks of the year. We tend to focus on everyone but ourselves, and then pick back up in January.

#28: Tired of Counting Sheep

Here is why –and how!– to get off your screens 2-3 hours BEFORE bedtime

#27: Save 💰💰 On Groceries

I know it takes planning and intention to grocery shop for quality food while on a budget.

#26: Mindset Matters

Are you aware YOU are the Essential Healing Ingredient required to improve your health?

#25: Take Your Power Back from Autoimmunity

I would not have spent over 10 years in decline with Rheumatoid Arthritis if my doctors had told me that I had the power to heal.

#24: Do You Dairy?

Every person with autoimmunity needs to avoid dairy.

#23: More Than A Sleep Hack

One factor that impacts our sleep –and our health!– is exposure to EMF's (electromagnetic frequencies).

#22: Gratitude Is A Power Tool

Practicing gratitude is an active process. It is different than simply being a grateful person.

#21: Move for Fun!

So many of us have preconceived ideas about what qualifies as exercise. Location, intensity, duration… And often, it is exactly those ideas that keep us avoiding exercise.

#20: Are You Eating Blue and Purple Fruits and Veggies?

As summer comes to a close, it is the perfect season to increase your intake of blue, purple and black fruits and vegetables. They contain nutrients that are anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and support brain and heart health!

#19: Your Hobbies Are Good For Your Health

Part of an effective stress management routine is to be sure to participate in activities that "fill your cup".

#18: Blue Blockers

Did you know that blue light signals the brain that it is daytime, and it wakes us up?

#17: What Are You Putting In Your Mouth?

Did you know that most commercial toothpaste contains toxins and chemicals that can negatively impact your health?

#16: Eat the Rainbow: Red

Different colors in food, mean different phytonutrients. Today's focus is on red foods!

#15: How Much Is Too Much Exercise?

Of course exercise is important but… how can you tell if you're overdoing it?

#14: Become a Sugar Detective

Do you know how to read labels when searching for hidden sugar?

#13: Time in Nature

You have no idea just how good spending time in nature is for you and your health!

#12: Morning Sunlight

One of my favorite hacks for improving sleep is to get morning sunlight.

#11: The Dirty Dozen

It isn't always possible, or practical, to buy all organic produce. But how can you know when to do it?

#10: Mindset Matters

Are you aware that YOU are the ESSENTIAL healing ingredient required to improve your health?

#9: Time With Friends

Did you know that spending time with friends is an effective stress management tool?

#8: Trade Your Soda

Are you a soda drinker? The amount of inflammation that soda causes is nothing to sneeze at!

#7: Get Your Steps In

Walking can reduce feelings of stress and inflammation, as well as improve your mood and support bone and heart health.

#6: Pack A Snack

Do you know the number 1 way to succeed on your eating plan?

#5: Where Is Your Phone When You Sleep?

Is your cell phone impacting your sleep quality?

#4: The Biggest Meditation Myth

I used to think that I was failing at meditation.

#3: Water Bottles

Are you buying your water in disposable plastic bottles? You are being exposed to toxic chemicals!

#2: Eat the Rainbow

Today I want to talk to you about what you eat. And that's the one thing you do that is never neutral. This means that whenever you put ANYTHING in your mouth, you're either moving closer to healing, or closer to your autoimmune symptoms. I am guessing you have heard the expression "eat the rainbow." Do you know why it is so important?

#1: Optimize Your Sleep Environment

If you're at all like me, you hate the feeling of powerlessness that comes with an autoimmune diagnosis. It seems like everywhere you turn, you're met with the same gloomy prognosis: "there's nothing that can be done about it." After more than a decade of powerlessness, I learned that was a bunch of nonsense! I didn't have to live with those symptoms forever! And neither do you!
