The Challenges We Face

Do you sometimes wish life was easier? Wouldn’t it be nice if everything good for us didn’t take such time, effort and self-discipline?
The challenges of life are on every side of us. They’re everywhere we turn. Whether it’s health, relationships, finances, spiritual growth, or keeping an orderly environment, we engage in a battle between the outcomes we want, and the work it takes to get there, every day of our lives! Some of us have had more training in self-discipline than others. I am not one of them!!!
I have gone through most of my life like a Yo-yo, trying […]

Pros and Cons of Different Juicers

Are you looking to get a juicer, but wondering what kind to get?
Here is my story of different juicers after my 30 day fast.

Well, Old Betsy, the Champion Juicer we have had for the past 26 years was a little worse for wear after having a piece broken off that keeps the spout from spinning around and having the part with the ‘teeth’ dropped down a running garborator, so when we decided to go on a 30 day juice fast, we figured it might be time to get a new juicer.

I thought that maybe the Breville that Joe Cross […]

The Wonders of a 30 Day Fast!

Why is fasting is a great way to kick-start your health journey?
Are you feeling sick and sluggish, but having a hard time breaking some of your old unhealthy eating habits? I was feeling that way after Christmas and the naughty binging I did, but have totally revamped my eating lifestyle by going on a fast. Here are some of the things I learned along the way.

Hi friends! I’ve been gone for a month or so with no posts. I hope you’ve missed me! I’ve missed sharing with you! After becoming inspired by watching the film Fat, Sick and Nearly […]

The Importance of Connection

Are you feeling disconnected from some of the important things of life during this busy holiday season?
Maybe, like me, you’ve allowed yourself to become distant from many of the things that once brought you life and meaning. I hope I can encourage you and myself to reach out and connect to those people and things that really matter once again.

I was watching Disney’s version of A Christmas Carol¬† last night. I wonder if Mr Dickens had any idea how profoundly his redemption story of Ebenezer Scrooge would affect people each year! It’s a perfect story to watch before […]

How to Keep Motivated to Live a Healthy Life

Here’s a tip on feeding your brain to change your life!
Do you ever read something or watch something that really inspires you to change and you start out then get off track? Umm… Yeah!!! I think we all have in one way or another. It might be about food, exercise, relationships, spiritual growth or finances, but it seems unless we find ways to keep ourselves motivated, we get easily side-tracked.

I have found in the past, and am really putting it into practice right now, the art of continually feeding my brain with info on the areas I need to […]

Movie Review – Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

Do you need to give your health a super-duper kick-start?
I’ve recently been coming across a lot of testimonials of people who have used juice fasting to literally save their own lives from disease and obesity.

My family has been having fun borrowing movies from our Chiropractor’s office. He has a great selection of informative and inspiring books and DVDs on health related topics. The latest one we watched is called ‘Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead’. It starts out with a man named Joe Cross from Australia travelling across the United States while going on a juice fast. He is overweight […]

How the Chiropractor Cured My PMS

Did you know that chiropractic adjustments could help more than your back?

I’ve only been going for a few weeks and not only is my chronic back and hip pain and stiffness gone already, but many other symptoms are gone too!

I have had back issues for years and a few really bad episodes where I couldn’t even walk because of the pain. I have been to around 5 different chiropractors, but have never met one quite like Dr Ali Amiri. More on him later!

My usual habit is to continue going to the¬†chiropractor only until my pain symptoms have gone. I […]

Walking – Fitness Made Easy

Do you want to get fit without having to join a gym or do complicated aerobics routines?
Walking is something everyone at almost every fitness level can do. (Excluding those in wheelchairs and without legs, of course) It is a very measurable activity that has many benefits. You don’t need any special equipment except a decent pair of shoes, so it fits in every budget!

Walking is very therapeutic for the soul if you can find somewhere that has pretty or interesting views. I love walking with other people. It’s a great way to connect, talk and get exercise at the […]

Weight Loss Vs Health – Vanity Vs Vitality

Do you want to break out of the obsession with thinness trap that our society is stuck in? How about getting addicted to being healthy instead?
Our obsession with looking thin continually leads us to do very unhealthy things! We are programmed that we must look a certain way to be acceptable no matter the cost! The cost is great! Our health and our pocketbook suffer from the crazy fads we try over and over to no good result.

I know some people who are very fit and healthy that don’t have the stereotypical ‘model body’ and I know many slim […]
