Do you want vibrant health?

Vibrant health

Do you want vibrant health? Do you want it enough to make it a goal for the New Year?

Are you willing to learn what you need to learn and do the work to last a lifetime?

To be honest, most people aren’t. Excuses start happening right and left. I don’t have time, it’s too much and I’m overwhelmed, I don’t have an support, I’m a picky eater, I don’t like change…and on and on and on.

Any of these sound familiar and can you add to them?

I’m not trying to turn you off right out of the gate, I’m just being real and it’s better if you are too.

Anything worth doing is worth doing right. Change is a challenge at the beginning but once you see results from the change, it provides motivation to keep going.

I talk a lot about taking care of you and your gut health. The reason for that is your gut is considered your second brain and with that is 70-80% of your immune system.

Most diseases and illnesses can be linked to the health of your gut. Are you going to continue to rely on the Doctor or Dietician to improve your health when they aren’t trained in proper nutrition?

Most dieticians still teach to avoid healthy saturated fats like butter, lard, and coconut oil, to name a few things.

Doctors don’t talk to you about gut health nutrition. They aren’t trained to. So what happens? Meds are prescribed to alleviate any pain or discomfort and perhaps more diagnostic testing is required.

While the testing is often necessary, it also becomes somewhat of a guessing game, especially with the lifestyle illnesses being seen today.

It’s time to gain the knowledge you need and take your health into your own hands. You really can no longer stick your head in the sand and pretend that things will get better and that you don’t have to incorporate some kind of change.

Rather than viewing change as a bad thing, I invite you to view change as your new best friend.

I and others that I hang around, view health as a necessity and one that is up to us. We don’t rely on others to do this for us.

We educate ourselves constantly and implement change when necessary. Is it always easy? No, but definitely worth doing and not something we even think about not doing.

We only get one go around at this life and we’re given one body…why not make the most of it and take the best possible care of your body?

I challenge you to at least consider implementing steps towards cleaning up your diet, your lifestyle, physical activity or something else that will move you towards living a vibrant and healthy life.

You are worth every ounce of effort it will take and so much more!

Shake things up a bit!


What do I mean by shake things up a bit? Have you ever tried to change things you knew you needed to or had a sudden wake-up call that changed everything?

I recently shared a story that’s been very disturbing to me ever since I heard it.

A young, beautiful woman shared a story that has forever changed how I view our bodies.

She came to me sharing her story of pain, discomfort and knowing that things needed to get shaken up a bit and change.

Imagine having Gerd and such reflux issues that it causes you to have your throat and esophagus stretched.

Is it hard to imagine? My mouth opened wide and I had to make myself close it out of sheer disbelief. Before I’d recovered from that shock, she shared that she had this procedure done twice, yes I said 2 times.

They problem is still there. Do you see that even though she’s had this horrible procedure done two times, it’s only provided here with temporary relief?

I recently saw her again, and she’s now ready to get with me after several months of knowing she needs to change her lifestyle. I told her I was glad she’s ready and I knew she’d eventually be back.

You see, what this story shares is that we all desire change. Some of us want change to occur immediately and aren’t willing to wait for results. Hence the drug companies and doctors that prescribes instant relief.

The problem with instant relief is that it leads you into a false sense of security. You aren’t being healed, you are just masking the symptoms and this drug inevitably will cause the use of another drug because of side effects and so on and so on.

The other side of change is the person who realizes that they want to do whatever it takes to permanently change their lives. This process also has some instant gratification and it also means learning what you don’t know and implementing these different methods in order to actually help our bodies heal.

Our bodies are miraculous. They have been designed in such a way that truly boggles the mind if you were to ever stop and really think about what our bodies do every single second of every day.

Armed with the “toolbox” of healing, our bodies will do the work when armed with the right tools. It really is simple.

In a recent conversation, everything being discussed really came down to the word “Simple.” We as humans, make things difficult and hard. We muck up things or muddy the water.

The great thing is that even when we muck up stuff, we can learn to unmuck and gain a new lease on life.

My tagline says it all…”It’s not about stopping the aging process, It’s about NOT getting old.”

Too many of us have been conditioned to think that just because we age, we automatically have aches, pains, lack of energy, etc.

That’s really not true. It’s just what you’ve been told and because of the way you’ve chosen to live your life, do you suffer from aches and pains and live on many medications.

At some point you’ll realize it really is ALL up to you. For all you control freaks, this should excite you. Your health is in your hands. Stop relying on our medical practioners to fix everything for you.

Learn what you need to learn and ask a lot of questions. Is this prescribed protocol designed to heal me or just mask symptoms?

Do you feel like you have trusted resources around you in order to make an informed decision in regards to my health? If not, reach out to trusted sources and get the answers you are seeking.

No question is a dumb one, only one that still needs answered in order for you to learn what you don’t know.

I’m always open for questions, ask away. The comments below are for the purpose of sharing our journeys together. What’s the most important thing you want to know today?
