Pioneers in Holistic Health and Nutrition


Hi Health-Seeker,


I'm sure glad I had a vacation, because now I am keeping really busy! I'm
looking forward to another.

Actually I am really looking forward to the Vital Healing Kitchen Show
Saturday, where I get to share my favorite ways to use chia seeds!  Those
little seeds are powerhouses of nutrition and balance blood sugar for hours.

I'm also excited about this week's radio guest, my dear friend and colleague, Dr Phyllis Books. She just published her first book, “Reversing Dyslexia”, and it's promised to be a big hit.

On the show I will pick Dr. Books' brain about all the misunderstanding
that surrounds dyslexia. It's not a reading disorder as most people think.
It's much more, and many kids who can read just fine can have dyslexia that
effects them in other ways with regards to learning.

Come to the call and learn how you can determine if your child is at risk. The success stories Dr. Books has are amazing!

If you missed last week's show, check out the replay. I shared some little
known facts about blood sugar imbalance and my own personal story!

Finally, check out Nomi Shannon‘s new book. Nomi is a dear friend and a
very talented chef and writer.  I think she wrote the perfect recipe book titled: You're raw they're cooked”, in which she addresses how to make peace at mealtime even when different family members choose different dietary approaches.

And the recipes look fabulous. It's loaded with ethnic recipes, which I love and also, there are raw and cooked versions! Super cool. Thanks Nomi!
And for you practitioners, check out practitioners' corner for access to the
recording of my insulin resistance kickoff webinar. I shared really in-depth information, and the audience was blown away. I love to geek out on the mechanisms that our most miraculous bodies use to keep us in balance.
I also reveal the startling statistics about sugar consumption in the US. Yikes! It's scary.

Click  HERE for instant access to the recording – but only through the end of the weekend – then it gets moved to the private members area of our Insulin Resistance Practitioner Program
That's it for now.

Remember, the chia class on Saturday is a Google hangout and is available to the public live and for 48 hours after.  Then it gets moved to the members only site, where you can access it for 2 months for just $19.97. If you'd like to join in the conversation, you need a Google Plus account and you need to be logged in.

Big hugs and lots of appreciation

Seven Tips for Lifting the Veil of Brain Fog

Brain fog is a serious problem. It affects your relationships, due to difficulty connecting. It affects your ability to perform well at work. You might have to settle for a job that’s way under your potential and capacity because you can’t focus.

It’s a big cost to your system. It costs you financially in that you’re unable to do the kind of work and career that you’re really capable of. It costs you in your relationships and it costs you in your joy.


It can affect your ability to create your own business. So many Stress Manpeople I have talked to have great ideas for wonderful businesses that would benefit them financially and emotionally, and would also benefit the world – but they can’t do it because they’re not thinking clearly enough.

It’s well worth it to find out everything you can about how to get your brain fog lifted, so you can be fully be present and live your life with passion and purpose.

How to Get Your Clients to Make Easier Dietary Changes

…by first reducing sugar cravings!

Your suggestions are great and probably work beautifully – if you can get
your clients to follow-up!

When I am on a mission to balance a client's blood sugar, of course one of
the recommendations is to eliminate sugar and all its relatives, bread and
other high carb favorites and replace with nutrient dense, lower carbohydrate, high green meals.

And the biggest challenge to that is the sugar cravings!

What I found is that if I get them on nutrients and herbs that make their cells less resistant to insulin BEFORE making dietary changes, the diet changes are a lot easier to make.

Here are a few nutrients and herbs that can be miraculous at reducing sugar
and starch cravings:

  1. chromium polynicotinate – 400 mcg twice a day (or 200 mcg with each meal and at bedtime)
  2. magnesium – approximately 400mg per day
  3. DHA – approximately 400 mg per day
  4. olive leaf extract – featured a few issues ago for its ability to restore insulin receptivity at the cellular level

For more tips on working with clients with blood sugar imbalance, insulin
resistance and diabetes, check out the recording of the kickoff call for my
Insulin Resistance Practitioner training  (IRSPT).

Or better yet, join me and over 50 other holistic health rock stars for the
full course:
