Alone Again, Naturally

Alone Again, Naturally

If you can pick it, pluck it, milk it, or shoot it, you can eat it.  ~ Suzanne Somers

It is troubling to me when I hear something like this:

I think the most discouraging thing with Dr. Simeons’ theory is when he says you can go back to normal eating and still hold your weight does not seem to work out very well.

And yes, that is an actual client quote.

First, this person was correct. However, before starting to doubt the process, consider this:

Yes, it was Dr. Simeons’ “theory” that after the protocol it was feasible to return to “normal” eating. Remember, a […]

Almost Everything You Need to Know About Probiotics and Prebiotics

Almost Everything You Need to Know About Probiotics and Prebiotics

Education is learning what you didn’t even know you didn’t know. ~ Daniel Boorstin

Just a decade ago, the words probiotics and were rare.  By now, while most have heard the words; all they really know is it has something to do with gut health.

Gut health.

Who knew digestion of food, our basic energy source, would be the prime focus in the total health world today?  More and more science is saying digestion, and in conjunction, elimination, are two of the most important body systems we can work on to achieve optimal health.

So what are probiotics and prebiotics and how can […]

Are You Running on Empty?

Are You Running on Empty?

Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. ~ Unknown

Do you remember vehicles with a “reserve” tank? If you were running out of gas, it took a simple switch from the main tank fuel supply to the alternate or reserve tank.

With the next fill up, sometimes closing off that reserve tank was forgotten. The next time you ran out of fuel; it was all tapped out.

Running on empty is exactly what most of us have been doing to our bodies.

Total Body Health, to me, is the most prized […]

Pounds and Inches ~ A Must Read

Pounds and Inches ~ A Must Read

 

Repetition is the mother of learning, the father of action, which makes it the architect of accomplishment. ~ Zig Ziglar

How many times have you read the book “Pounds and Inches” by Dr. A.T.W Simeons?

I have seriously lost count of the number of times I’ve read through its pages.

From my first round, it was a constant daily companion, keeping it by my side and reading from it every day.

In fact, when I first got it, I read it twice in the same day – front to back.

For me, Dr. Simeons’ words were enlightening and rang true. I had finally found something […]

Choose to Be Happy

Choose to Be Happy

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it. ~ Groucho Marx

Happiness is a choice you make from within.

Choosing to be happy is like finding and buying a new pair shoes; you want them to fit well, feel good, look great and make a statement about who you are.

If the shoes were uncomfortable and looked bad on […]

Body Image Makeover

Body Image Makeover

To lose confidence in one’s body is to lose confidence in oneself. ~ Simone de Beauvoir

Picture this:

While standing in a grocery store checkout line, glancing at all the magazines, suddenly it seems they are staring back at you. You see gorgeous models with perfect faces and bodies. As your self-consciousness heightens and now feeling ashamed of your body, you are certain other people are also comparing your body to the flawless cover girls.

Who, with all the photo shopping; in reality, don’t even exist.  See example here.

In that moment, your body image plummeted and tanked.

Your body image perception; and more […]

What is Muscle Memory?

What is Muscle Memory?

 

I know it’s been a while. But it’s like riding a bike. It’ll all come back to you. ~ Unknown

Bike riding is so commonplace we use it as a cliché for learning and retaining new skills.

This is referred to as muscle memory; however, it has nothing to do with muscles, but rather the brain.

What is muscle memory?

Permit me to explain … however, please keep in mind I am not a psychologist and this isn’t a psychology class so will do my best to explain this phenomenon and then will even show how this relates to Whole Body Health.  ::giggle::

Psychologists usually […]

10 Life Lessons I Learned from Star Wars ~ The Force Awakens

Warning: Contain spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.  If you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want to know anything about it, please cease reading now and come back after your viewing. And by the way: Why haven’t you seen it yet? ::giggle::

Story telling is an art.  The best stories teach us lessons.

For nearly four decades, Star Wars has been an excellent example of great story telling.  And even though events in the Star Wars Universe involve bizarre creatures, dark and light forces, and seemingly much more exciting elements than are happening in our world; there is a relevance […]
