Ohhh your poor post-holiday liver. It’s probably in pain right now. Having done several 21 and 30-day detoxes, and having been sober for 11 months at one point (you know, the whole baby making thing) I have a set of tools to help me successfully complete a month without drinking that I hope will support you. Foods for the liver Greens, duh. Beets and beet juice. Since beet juice is gross, I juice them with carrots and oranges. The liver detoxes the body, so we want to help it out with watery foods: Celery Cucumber Watermelon Apples See below for…

Everyone has a toxic load. Yup, you too babe. We don’t live on farms and it’s not 1910 anymore. Fact: The world we live in today has more toxins than ever before. If you’re having issues and modern medicine is having a hard time finding a root cause, it’s very possible that said root cause lies in your toxic load. Hair falling out? Trouble sleeping? Can’t lose weight? Tired all of the time? Can’t think clearly? Constipation? And you’re doing the things that should technically work, but still feeling crappy? Then it’s time, my friend, to take a serious look…

Because essential oils hold internal benefits for the body, many people use them for things like promoting healthy cell function, supporting gastrointestinal health, or maintaining healthy immune function. Essential oils provide a safe, natural way to deal with many of the…

Hiya! Here’s some quick info on the importance of choosing a good quality essential oil, and why I choose to buy from doTERRA.   First off, the purity of your oils is paramount, because you need purity in order to have therapeutic effects. Impure in the bottle = impure in your body.   WHY PURITY IN EOs IS IMPORTANT Where the plant is grown, how it is harvested, how it is distilled and how it is preserved are imperative for therapeutic essential oils. 98% of essential oils on the market are either food or perfume-grade oils, meaning they are used in…

PREAMBLE: WHY YOU NEED TO TAKE CHARGE OF YOUR HEALTH ‘Cause it was written in the stars… In astrology, (oh shit, I’m starting with the woo-woo already!)  they are saying that we’ve entered a period of global awakening; that between now and 2024 we will see a massive shift in consciousness as people wake up from the current paradigms plaguing our society today (ahem, Trump). A big part of this movement and prediction is that people will begin to take back control of their lives and of their health. Us ladies are very intuitive beings, especially moms. The process of creating and…
