The health benefit of seeing sunrises and sunsets! SLEEP better

Do you get 7-9 hours of sleep each night?
Or do you experience the dread of insomnia…tossing and turning, or falling to sleep only to wake up in the middle of the night…and then staring at the clock until the morning! Total misery, and not only can it make you cranky, but it can impact your overall health.
I hope you caught the recent guest blog here on my website on “the ultimate cure for insomnia”. My friends at Mind Valley Academy wrote the article …

Cooking for hormone balance with Magdalena Wszelaki

Really enjoyed this podcast with Magdalena Wszelaki, the founder of Hormones Balance.
Magdalena talked about the significant health crisis she went through as a result of a highly stressful career in advertising. A high profile and demanding lifestyle, stressful in every way! Mentally stressful, never in the same time zone, lack of sleep, hotel and fast food on the run. This eventually ended in complete adrenal fatigue, autoimmune conditions, estrogen dominance and even depression.
But she was able to heal herself and go into complete …

Negative emotions truly can be toxic, and in fact are acidic!
Just ask the women in my hormone reset programs, who quickly learn they can not …

Put more Oxytocin into your life for a healthier you

So many lifestyle considerations beyond just diet can impact your health. Sometimes you need to spend a bit of time (and play detective) to figure out what is going on.
Hormone imbalance and many of the challenges women experience in perimenopause or menopause (including packing on the pounds and having trouble getting rid of belly fat) can often be traced back to too much cortisol.
And did you know that too much cortisol impacts your blood sugar levels? And it is your blood sugar levels …

Energy To Connect, Love and Intimacy or Redbull and a divorce attorney?

A happy and healthy marriage is key to longevity, healthy aging, fulfillment, and a general sense of peace and satisfaction with our lives.
But stress can build from outside and inside our relationships, causing DIS-CONNECT.
We have become a country …

Do you feel stressed and tired pretty much every day?
Are you lonely and disconnected from your relationships with others and even yourself? Have you intentionally not interacted with people or your favorite activities just because you didn’t have the energy to care and engage?
