Are you doing all of the right things but still struggle with fatigue and weight loss? Have you been eating healthy, exercising and feel stuck? 

You are not alone and there is a solution. 

I am going to share with you how you eat is just as important as what you eat and provide one simple step you can take today to be  able to  assimilate food and supplements to maximize their benefits and move the needle just 1 degree closer to your ideal health and life .

Eating healthy foods and taking healthy action is only 50% of experiencing optimal health. 

The other 50% is being in the ideal state to digest and assimilate food. 

In order to be in this ideal state you must have healthy coping mechanisms for stress. 

Stress has a profound impact on our health and leaks into all areas of our life that I call “The Big Five” : health, career, relationships, finances, and spiritual .

Healthy coping mechanisms for stress helps you return to the ideal state to digest and assimilate food to maximize your body’s health and healing power. 

Regardless of what you’re working on to improve in your life, stress is a huge factor that deserves a lot of respect and consideration.

No matter the condition, behavior or symptom your body will heal, release weight, and restore when it’s accepted and in a calm state . 

When you are in the sympathetic state or “the fight or flight”  stress state, you can do all of the right things such as  eating well and taking  supplements but your body won’t make use of it if you’re in an overactive state of mind.

The stressful state causes your body to prioritize survival mode.  It perceives there to be danger and causes our cells to reprioritize the production of energy, sends blood flow away from the GI system, slows digestion and stops release of hormones to assimilate food 

Research shows that shallow rapid breathing activates the sympathetic nervous system (the stress response), the fight or flight response. So most people are in a chronic low level state of stress which leads to fatigue, anxiety , foggy brained. 

Deeper slower breathing activates the parasympathetic nervous system, the rest and digest response. It puts you into a relaxed state.  The relaxed, “rest and digest “state is crucial for optimal wellbeing. 

The way you breath impacts your blood pressure, metabolism, heart rate, stress level, digestion, and mood.

Just by changing the way you are breathing has the power to improve your mood, decrease anxiety and increase energy, improve metabolic power.

Ready to harness the power of the breath to decrease stress and optimize your digestive and healing power? 

Before you begin eating your next meal, pause to recognize how your feeling. Draw your attention to your breath. Is it labored? Fast? Are you agitated, distracted or hurried? Take a deep cleansing breath and then continue with the following practice. It takes only 60 seconds.

Whether you are agitated, worried or have a mind full, slowing your breathing down tells your brain that nothing is chasing you and it can turn off the fight or flight stress state and turn on the rest and digest state. 

  1. Start by placing your feet flat on the floor. 
  2. Sit up tall, relax your shoulders 
  3. Let your hands rest on your lap or belly. 
  4. Take a deep inhale through the nose letting your belly rise for a count of 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 
  5. Exhale through your nose feeling your belly sink for a count of 7. 6. 5. 4. 3. 2. 1. 
  6. Repeat 5 times. 

Simple and powerful. 

Here’s a Bonus! Try this breathing practice the next time you are in an argument with your spouse or family member. It works the same way. It provides you clarity and ability to respond in a more effective way rather than be reactionary. 

I would love to hear your thoughts and experience on implementing this one simple practice into your mealtimes. Leave a comment below and if this would help another, please share. 


How Bacteria Communicate


Bacteria have a type of internet network that allows them to rapidly exchange information. Even if they are different types of bacteria. Once one bacteria learn how to resist man-made antibiotics, it wastes no time communicating the information to other bacteria. With the amazing network that bacteria have, it takes very little time for this information to be shared.
Bacteria release pieces of their DNA, which also carry antibiotic resistance information.
Bacteria produce a new generation every twenty minutes, multiplying 500,000 times faster than people. This new generation is already resistant to our antibiotics.

Bacteria helped develop the earth before man was here. They are much older than we are and will continue to survive in spite of our efforts to kill all bacteria as we continuing making man-made antibiotic products. Bacteria are designed to have highly developed survival skills. The reason they are so survival intelligent is because without bacteria there would be no earth and no inhabitants. We cannot survive without good bacteria. Unfortunately, man-made antibiotic products continue to kill the good bacteria.

The Danger of taking Pharmaceutical Antibiotics

Our negligent use of pharmaceutical antibiotics has created a resistance that many people are feeling today when their prescribed antibiotic no longer works. 

About 50% of the antibiotics administered in the United States hospitals are unnecessary, and about 45% of prescriptions written in doctors’ offices are for illnesses that antibiotics cannot help.

Most animals in every country are given antibiotics to fatten them up and “protect” them from illness. About 80% of the antibiotics sold in the United States every year are for farm animals.  Eating animals injected with antibiotics affect human gut bacteria.

We have created an era of antibiotic resistance. Alexander Fleming (maker of Penicillin) warned us about 70 years ago that our continued use and misuse of pharmaceutical antibiotics will leave us vulnerable to the new and up-coming drug-resistant bacteria.

Herbal anti-biotic works with the entire body to destroy bad bacteria, viruses and parasites. Pharmaceutical antibiotics destroy ALL bacteria, both good and bad, leaving the body imbalanced, prone to immune weaknesses and other secondary infections. Our first line of defense against bad bacteria is the correct herbs.

Herbal Anti-Biotic, the best alternative.

The overuse of pharmaceutical antibiotics have created superbugs that have developed a resistance to the most powerful drugs. The pharmaceutical antibiotics are becoming ineffective as well as dangerous to the good bacteria in the human body.

However, in nature’s infinite wisdom there are highly effective herbs that naturally have anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-parasitical and anti-viral properties, all able to protect the human body safely and with deep natural healing powers.

The Herbal anti-biotic developed by M. Iles, Phd, CCMH, can be used as a powerful herbal tincture to clean the blood and fight many types of bacteria, viruses and parasites.
