Food Fundamentals

Look for whole foods, mostly plants, minimally contaminated with pesticide residues, organic if/when possible, non GMO. Read the labels on EVERYTHING before you buy, the fewer the ingredients the better. Avoid additives, food colorings, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, sugary drinks or trans-fats. If you don’t recognize what you are reading on the label, don’t buy it. 

Identify the bad stuff:

Water Purification
  • Highly suggested

Electromagnetic Radiation

Stress Reduction/Meditation, Free Guided Meditations and Courses

Personal Care Products

Are you ready to eat your moisturizer? A safe rule is to assume that anything you put on your body will be absorbed (i.e. lotion, deodorant). Read labels and skip products with unrecognizable ingredients.  Homemade alternatives are safe, effective and cheap here are a few that I use:

  • Moisturizer (body and face): Organic, expeller pressed sesame oil. Sounds crazy, but this is an ancient Ayurvedic practice (Abyhanga). Apply to wet skin after washing and massage in. Once skin is dry, it will not be greasy. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory oil contains many vitamins (E, B complex, minerals  like zinc and magnesium, antioxidants (sesamol) and essential fatty acids (palmitic and linoleic acids). Buy in a glass bottle, smaller size is better, as oil becomes rancid several weeks after opening.

  • Toothpaste: Mix baking soda and hydrogen peroxide together into a watery paste - excellent toothpaste and whitener

  • Foot Scrub: Mix olive oil, epsom salt and add a drop or two of an essential oil if you want a scent (such as lemon, lavender)
