Above all, be true to yourself, and if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it. ~ Hardy D. Jackson
I have to laugh.
I was having a Skype conversation with a client (turned good friend, accountability buddy, kindred spirit, etc.) the other day and I was lamenting about the state of my coaching business.
Now granted, I know well and good the responsibility of that falls squarely on my shoulders, but I was having a venting session and do you know what she decided to do while I was lamenting on this or that?
She decided to coach me.
Here are Parts 1, 2 and 3. And before you holler at me, there will be a Part 5.
When last we left off, I was ready to embark on a healing regimen and I had a strong support group in place.
Dr. Cursio’s treatment plan for me started with a water fast. You read that right; nothing but water for a number of days (usually, a day for each year of one’s life, with breaks at 30 day intervals).
The rationale was that my body had been fed toxins over a long period of time and the only way […]
I really tried to wrap it up in this part, but alas, there is too much to tell. If you would like to catch up here are Parts 1 & 2.
When my sister read my articles, she reminded me I had forgotten a crucial segment. Hence the need for Part 4! ::giggle::
Before continuing with my Pittsburgh move, let’s return to Hawaii. While living there, my body manifested another indication of internal turmoil which was I had terrible acne. Now some might say acne is common during teenage years due to hormonal changes. However, I started puberty around age […]
This article won’t make sense unless you read Part 1 first.
At the end of Part 1, things were looking pretty bleak. Almost overnight, my health had turned from pretty darn good to in the miserableness realm and it became my norm for the next three years.
Sadly, we were convinced there was nothing to be done.
Let me back up a moment, because this information is important to the story. I was to take the medication until my chest x-rays were clear. After a year, I was informed this had occurred and I could cease and desist. Another interesting note is […]
When last I left you (Essential Oils Part 4) I was about to embark on the explanation of E.O.B.B.D. or as it is better known:
Essential Oils Botanically and Biochemically Defined
To simplify, there are basically two kinds of Essential Oils:
- Recreational: This type of essential oil is what we normally see available in health food stores and such, it is mainly used for aromatherapy and when you purchase these oils, you are purchasing oils of unknown origin or quality. NOT to be used internally.
- Therapeutic: To be classified as a therapeutic (of or relating to the healing of […]
Are all Essential Oils created the same?
There is a huge difference between that $30 three pack you can get at Bed, Bath and Beyond (made for just making things smell good) and the $100 bottle of pure Essential Oil (used to help you gain optimal health).
The next question then is this … is there a way to determine whether or not you are getting a genuine and quality product?
The answer is imperative to know as the real value to some of these Essential Oils is the need to take them internally, to allow the body to heal itself from […]
My apologies for the delay – right after the last post, my host performed an upgrade that went a little wonky and I haven’t wanted to post until it got all cleared up. Looks like we are firing on all cylinders now, so off I go.
When I last left you, we were just about to discuss something called a healing crisis (through the use of essential oils). Just for the record, this isn’t something that is just made up to help alternative practitioners explain certain symptoms when they are trying to help clients get better. There is an actual scientific […]
What are Essential Oils exactly?
Most simply defined, they are the essences of plants. If essences is too woo woo a word for you, then try the Wikipedia explanation:
An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as volatile oils, ethereal oils, aetherolea, or simply as the “oil of” the plant from which they were extracted, such as oil of clove. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant.
They are the botanical extract of various […]
