The Benefits of Drinking Kombucha Tea

Kombucha tea, one of my favorite superfoods, has been around for a long, long time and in recent years has really grown in popularity. Its a naturally carbonated beverage that when made properly, happens to be a super nutritious thyroid and autoimmune elixir, full of B vitamins, vitamin C, enzymes for digestion, acids to boost the immune system, and gut-healing probiotics.   Many scientific studies have been conducted on Kombucha tea. Russian researchers discovered that many of its components have antibiotic and detoxifying characteristics, and they play a decisive role in the biochemical processes in the body. Its been reported that it detoxes heavy metals, plastics, and neurotoxins! Kombucha tea is made from a scoby mushroom which consists of a gelatinoid and tough mushroom-web membrane in the form of a flat disk. It lives in a nutrient solution of tea and sugar, in which it constantly multiplies through germinating. The fungal disc … Continue reading

Bone Broth- A Powerful Healing Tool

Bone broth, a highly beneficial, nutrient dense superfood has been used since ancient times and is considered to be one of the most remarkable foods on the planet that is made from simmering animal or fish bones. Its a powerful healing tool, often referred to as “the elixir of life.” Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, said over 2,000 years ago… “All disease begins in the gut.” Modern day science is finally coming around and confirming this ancient wisdom. Sadly, most people remain unaware of how incredibly beneficial bone broth is and miss out on the opportunity to transform their health and life. When you were sick as a child, did your mom ever make a pot of chicken soup and insist that you eat it, telling you that it would make you feel better? Have you ever wondered why? Homemade bone broth has amazing health benefits and can be … Continue reading

Time to Cleanse, Rebuild, & Support

Would you like to combat all the garbage you’ve exposed your body to over the years and help it function at optimal levels? The average American diet includes highly processed foods, laden with high fructose corn syrup, sugar or artificial sweeteners, dyes, pesticides, and ingredients whose names most people can’t even pronounce. Hippocrates, known as the father of medicine, is well known for this quote which you’ve probably heard a thousand times, right? “Let thy food by thy medicine, and let thy medicine be thy food.” The modern day version of this is… “garbage in, garbage out” or “You are what you eat!”   The consumption of dead, chemical laden, highly processed foods and exposing ourselves to toxic, hormone disrupting chemicals, multiple times on a daily basis is wreaking havoc on on bodies and literally making us sick. Is it any wonder that so many people experience so many health … Continue reading

Feed Your Gut, Change Your Life

Our modern lifestyle and fast-paced culture is oftentimes at odds with living a healthy lifestyle. We’ve all heard the saying “You are what you eat!” right? Unfortunately, many of us have sacrificed our health on the alter of convenience because of our busy lifestyles and unhealthy eating habits. I have always preferred to find natural and holistic ways to support my health and wellness goals, however, for far too long I was undermining those efforts by making unhealthy food choices. Eating healthy is simple, it just isn’t easy sometimes. We have to unlearn poor eating habits and replace them with healthy ones by making healthy choices. When we do this we can begin to live life the way it was meant to be lived. Living a rich, vibrant, healthy life is within our reach when we begin to make healthy lifestyle changes. If you want to change your life then … Continue reading

Making Healthy Choices- HEALTHY BEVERAGES

In today’s toxic world, if you want to live life to its fullest then you need to be making healthy choices in many areas of your life.

When you supply your body with what it needs it will respond in positive ways. It really is very simple, it just isn’t necessarily easy. We’re all creatures of habit and most of us find it difficult to break old patterns especially ones that have been ingrained in us for many years, but it can be done. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you have trouble giving up sugar. Did you know that studies show that sugar is just as addictive as cocaine… yep, that’s right! … Continue reading

Supplement with Master Formula and NingXia Red

In order to make sure your body is getting all the vitamins and minerals needed to help it function at optimal levels it’s more important than ever to use supplements… ones that your body can actually absorb. We simply are not getting the needed nutrients from our food any longer without supplementation. According to an article “Dirt Poor: Have Fruits and Vegetables Become Less Nutritious?” our soil no longer contains the same amount of nutrients it once did. Outdated farming practices and the typical American SAD diet is a bad combination and us leading off right off the cliff. “It would be overkill to say that the carrot you eat today has very little nutrition in it—especially compared to some of the other less healthy foods you likely also eat—but it is true that fruits and vegetables grown decades ago were much richer in vitamins and minerals than the varieties … Continue reading
