Because eggs are a regular part of my diet, I'm SUPER aware of sourcing them and want to share with you what to look for when you buy them, since companies use super shady marketing tactics to convince you they are healthy but in reality are laid by unhealthy sick chickens.
I've noticed SO much confusion about eggs and I hope this email clears it up because first, we don't want to eat eggs from sick chickens, and second, we don't want to support companies who raise sick chickens and sell their eggs!
Before we break it down, let's cover the whole "eggs are high in cholesterol"!
Science told us at one time that a high degree of egg consumption increases your risk for cardiovascular disease due to the fact that eggs are high in cholesterol, BUT a large, long-term study has...
(Wo)Man has become more and more disconnected with nature.
Think back to 10K - 12K years ago when our ancestors literally LIVED in nature. The hunter-gathers were constantly outside, moving, foraging, hunting, and deeply connected to the cycles of the earth and of humanity.
Fast forward to 2020, and many of us don't even step outside our homes! We constantly consuming digital media, wearing shoes, sleeping by fields of radiation... either emitted by our phones, lamps, TV's or whatever is on the other side of the wall.
What many of us don't understand is that WE ARE NATURE! You cannot remove the human from nature. We are one in the same and this disconnection has created such enormous health challenges. Now is the time to close the gap and evolve humanity, through deepening our understanding of how to reclaim our health... and getting outside is just one step in the right direction!
I had the pleasure of interviewing Beth Greer, aka. Super Natural Mom, and Dr....
Do you know what scares me most?
The idea of not fulfilling my mission on earth. Not fully living my truest soul-expression.
The thing is, EVERY human being on this planet has a mission, a unique and bio-individual purpose that we are specifically designed to be embody during our life.
Our soul longs to be heard and expressed. This is the longing so many of us feel as a void that must be filled with things, whether it be handbags, shoes, shopping, amazon packages (you can see what I tend to fill it with), drugs, alcohol, even exercise or nonstop working habits. There are millions of things one can try and fill the void with… but it can and never will be filled. It will only continue to long and crave it’s full expression without shame, fear, and self-doubt.
What keeps us from living this optimal version of ourselves?
There are a few things I’ve...
If you aren't already familiar with GMO's this post is for you!
GMO's are one of humans biggest mistakes. What was once thought would be an idea that changed the world and fed the hungry, became one of the biggest lies that the world has ever known.
GMO's are not safe. They have been linked to numerous chronic diseases. Before we dive into the health detriments of these organisms and the chemicals that accompany them, let's get a better understanding of what they actually are.
These are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a lab through genetic engineering. This creates combinations of plant, animal, bacteria, and virus genes that do not occur in nature or through traditional crossbreeding methods.
Sound appetizing? No, this is the epitome of messing with Mother Nature. Which has NEVER ended well.
While many countries like, Europe, have...
"Healthy skin is a reflection of overall wellness." - Howard Murad M.D.
Not only is our skin the largest organ in our body (16% of our total body weight) it protects us from the world around us. Our skin is always letting us know what's going on in the inside. It is truly a reflection of how our body's systems are operating.
Have you heard of face mapping?
Face mapping is an ancient medicinal technique that makes connections between problems on the face and overall health. If you want to learn more check out this article by Dr. Axe, Face Mapping; What Your Skin May Be telling You.
Paying attention to what our skin is telling us is vital! We are always receiving messages about what's going on inside of us. Symptoms are simply messengers urging us to pay attention and take action! Instead of opting for over the counter meds or countless and expensive doctors appointments, we must learn how to support our body with what it needs and help heal from the...
The first time I ever about CBD was when I read an article discussing how this particular molecule helped a little girl, Charlotte Figi. Charlotte was plagued with extreme and traumatizing seizures. She was having 300 grand mal seizures a week! After using CBD, seizures stopped. I learned that scientists believe CBD oil helped suppress seizures by slowing down messages being sent to the brain, changing calcium levels in brain cells and decreasing inflammation in the brain.

It was miraculous!! I was so excited for this little girl and the promise CBD holds for countless symptoms and sufferings.
Already a believer in holistic plant medicine, I became really curious about CBD. I began researching and digging... I discovered that not only has CBD shown to help with seizures, research has shown that it is effective in treating pain and inflammation, anxiety, PTSD, and cancer...
It truly is.
Hydration is key to every element of our health and our microbiome is greatly impacted by whether we are hydrated or chronically dehydrated.
It is estimated that over 75% of American adults suffer from chronic dehydration! Common symptoms of dehydration are:
Our bodies are 55% - 60% water! Water is the medium in which all other nutrients are found and is the most abundant and important element (besides Oxygen) on earth and in the human body. It is also involved in almost EVERY bodily function:
It is also the primary component of all our bodily fluids:
Drinking enough clean water is essential to life and our overall wellness.
