Pretty neat lady! 😊With #healthyguts! Love her story! “😱Look what 3 years can do- even after 3 kiddos! 🙌🏻 #agingbackwards What’s even more crazy, is the me in the left picture, was dancing and working out 5-6 times a week and eating great- but was dealing with horrible #postpartumdepression, #anxiety, #adrenalfatigue, and #chronicpain. She didn’t know life could be any different and believed this was just part of getting old and having kids. #postpartumlife I had moved into #acceptance and guys- THATS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO BE!
Three years later, after a DREAM pregnancy, I am happy to say depression and anxiety NEVER reared it’s head after Birth. Baby girl has ZERO #yeast issues, and the strongest #immunesystem of ALL my kids. Zero reflux, zero allergies- and has had no more then a little stuffy nose in her life. #healthybaby
31lbs is a BIG difference- I still have 8 more pounds to get to where I was when I got pregnant with P, But weight is just a number! How I feel, living pain free, focused, energized and happy- is what is MOST important.
Why in the heck do I drink this every day and share about it so frequently?
🌺because I sleep SOOOOOO deep every night #sleeplikeababy
🌺because it has helped me #loseweight and keep it off #39poundsdown 🌺because it gives me a clear mind and no more #mombrain
🌺because it helps me crave less junk food #byebyesugar 🌺because it helps me to fit into my clothes again #savingmoney
🌺because it has helped with my #postpartumbody 🌺because it gives me #naturalenergy — #peaceoutafternooncrash 🌺because it feeds a healthy gut #guthealth
🌺because it balances my hormones #happyhubby”

Happy Sunday!⠀
⠀
Last week, we learned a bit about the adrenal glands. ⠀
⠀
----⠀
⠀
This week, we are going to explore some of the common herbs called adaptogens that are used in the treatment of adrenal issues 🙌🏽⠀
⠀
----⠀
⠀
What are adaptogens? They are a group of medicinal herbs that help modulate your body's response to stress.  Who doesn't need that? 😜 They are fairly well studied and are gaining a lot of popularity for their health benefits.  So stay tuned!⠀

Once upon a time this was my favorite shirt and I wore it all the time. Then my husband washed it and it shrunk. So I stopped wearing it for a while. Today I didn’t have any nice shirts for church so I dug this baby out and winced as I tried it on. And it’s too big! It’s baggy and gaps instead of hugging my body! It feels good to see some results 😁 #adrenalfatigue #adrenalfatiguerecovery #fattyliver #leakygut #journeytohealth #nsv #nonscalevictory

NEW STRETCHING ROUTINE! This is a great, short routine for almost any time of day and can even be done from bed. Getting blood flow and some movement on even your worst days can help with symptoms and healing
.

I encourage you to start adding this to your life. Try it a couple times a week, building up to daily (or at least some sort of stretching daily). I promise you’ll notice a difference in pain levels, tightness, and possibly even fatigue and brain fog

I love this post by my gal @nicolemjardim: ・・・
With all the torture we inflict on our vaginas these days – waxing, lasering, chemical-laden douches, synthetic tampons and pads, antibiotics, hormonal birth control, vaginal rejuvenation surgery, bleaching, spermicides...I could go on and on – I’m frankly shocked at the backlash in the media about vaginal steaming.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s mind-blowing to me that everything I listed above is considered completely normal and okay, but sitting over a bowl of hot water and herbs for 30 minutes is going to ruin our health. I mean seriously?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s ruining our health is all the toxic sh*t we keep putting into our bodies, not vaginal steaming, a traditional practice that’s been used by women for a very long time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I believe we should be asking how we can better take care of women, rather than bashing them for their personal health choices. Especially since we live in a country where maternal mortality is rising, C-sections and hysterectomies are the first and second most common surgeries among women and 58% of women on birth control use it for other reasons than birth control – regulating periods, acne, painful periods etc.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have you tried it vaginal steaming? Let me know your experience in the comments below. 📷: @sarashakeel

We all feel it, we all are in situations that bring it about. But there’s a big difference between moments of stress and your body being in a constant state of stress. Waking up constantly exhausted (no matter how much sleep you get), aches and pains from your typical workout, food cravings, low sex drive, and not being able to imagine a day without caffeine - are all signs of adrenal fatigue aka chronic stress.
.
There is this pressure to constantly be doing it all, and going full force at everything. The reality is, it’s not sustainable. After putting my body through the ringer throughout my 20s and even more in the past year, i am realizing the value of rest.
.
Traveling, changing jobs, increasing my training schedule and not a whole lot of time for sleep is one nasty cocktail of adrenal fatigue. So i am DEFINITELY taking this weekend to soak up a few days back home and REST. I was sure to pack this @megafood Adrenal Strength which I’ve been taking to help recover. It’s made with real, whole, local foods to help nourish depleted adrenals and promote a healthy stress response by the body. I’ve been diving into what adrenal fatigue really is the past few months, and it’s something that so many struggle with daily, without even knowing it.
.
I’m encouraging you to take a step back this week, check in with your ‘ol bod and maybe realize that 1-2 rest days could and SHOULD be in your future 😘
.
If you want some help with that, all @megafood supps are 20% off, tomorrow 7/23, as part of @vitacost July Cybersale 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 Check out all the goods on sale, because the deals are stackable 👌🏽 Hope you’re having a fab Sunday my chickpeas!!! 😬💗 #cybersummersplash #vitacostvip #megafood #adrenalfatigue

🙀 Diet Bet weigh in tomorrow 🙀
Had to lose 4% of my body weight in 30 days. 🥑Where I’m at: I was 2 pounds UNDER and today I gained 1.6 so I only have a .4 margin. Too close especially with how hard I’ve been working. 🥑Why I think I’m up: 
Stress 
Poor sleep
Not enough water 
Building muscle 
Inflammation from hard exercise 🥑 Plan of attack:
Fasting
Water drinking
Non strenuous activity (bowling)
Avocado to lower stress
Using oils to keep stress low too
Focusing on positives and believing I was already under and I’ll be under tomorrow.

I’m so excited to share my new look and logo with you finally 😊🦋💙 Why this image? I wanted it to connote my motto of being ‘your own thyroid advocate’, so came up with a thyroid patient’s hands calmly holding a butterfly, to symbolise being in control of their thyroid condition. The butterfly and light blue are international symbols of the thyroid gland and thyroid awareness.  Everything The Invisible Hypothyroidism does is to encourage you to become your own thyroid advocate and take control of your health.

CALLING MYSELF OUT - THINGS I SHOULD DO MORE OF TO IMPROVE MY HEALTH
✨
I'm coming clean with you today... 😱 We all know social media often shows the highlights of our lives rather than the REAL life. As a coach and motivator I wish to inspire and therefor often share positive content and stories of my improvement from chronic illness, rather than speak up about my struggles. This is a decision I have made for myself also in my personal life; to step out of the victim mode and not complain all the time, because I have found that I feel a lot better when I shift focus from struggle to blessings.
✨
I know many people appreciate my inspirational posts but the problem is that it might seem like I am living a "perfect" life without problems. This is not true. We all have problems and struggles, it is a part of life - even for healthy people.
✨
That's why I want to share this list with you today.
✨
THINGS I SHOULD DO MORE OF TO IMPROVE MY HEALTH:
✨
💖 Spend more time offline
💖 Take more rest breaks during the day
💖 Breathing exercises
💖 Daily gentle yoga
💖 More pacing
✨
Earlier in my recovery I did all of these things but as I have improved my routine has slipped a bit, because I don't need it as much anymore. I do feel like I need to incorporate some more of these things right now, to reach the next level of recovery. And by sharing it with you I hope that I will be able to hold myself accountable to do so!
✨
I would like to invite you to list your things here. The things you know you should do more of to feel better but you don't do enough of. 💖
✨
Love & light, always
✨

Hey guys, look what came in the post yesterday. Rabenhorst - 100% pure cranberry juice 🥤 Nothing in there but cranberries. It tastes tart but I quite like it & if it helps to stop 🛑 me getting kidney infections, it will be worth it. Thanks to @ourhashimotos for the suggestion 😊 I am trying everything....
Hope everyone is having a great weekend - we have beautiful sunshine here in Chester 😁👩🏻😊 Yippee!!! .. ..

Everyone has this one breaking point. This one rock bottom where everything changed.
.
I have many.
.
When my codependency was at an all time high, my rock bottom was getting slammed by my head into the back of a bathroom wall covered in bruises. It only took once time. I got the message.
.
When I was running around Vegas at 21 doing 2 eight balls of coke a day and puking out of my car while cops watched waiting to arrest me. Hello rock bottom. I got the message. Quit cold turkey.
.
My rock bottom with adrenal fatigue includes me laying on the floor of my bathroom crying bc I didn’t have the energy to stand let alone be a good mother (you’ll have to read my upcoming book for the full deep story). I went vegan and started healing.
.
I have spiritual rock bottoms. I have health rock bottoms. I have relationship rock bottoms. I have mindset rock bottoms. But I don’t regret any of them.
.
Because each and every one allowed me to shift and transition to something new.
.
My rock bottoms have a purpose. They got me to see the light, drive and propel me forward, and show me exactly what I don’t want so I can find what I do.

Never apologize for your rock bottom. Never be ashamed of it. They’re there for you to grow.

The problem comes with you get stuck in a victim mindset and the rock bottoms go on repeat.

You cannot see change and the beauty in the world if your mind only sees negative. If you think everything happens to you and nothing you do can change or fix that.

You have all the power in the world to fix it.

Use your rock bottom as a launching pad. its a beautiful thing if you just trust the process and let it.

Everyone has this one breaking point. This one rock bottom where everything changed. . I have many. . When my codependency was at an all time high, my rock bottom was getting slammed by my head into the back of a bathroom wall covered in bruises. It only took once time. I got the message. . When I was running around Vegas at 21 doing 2 eight balls of coke a day and puking out of my car while cops watched waiting to arrest me. Hello rock bottom. I got the message. Quit cold turkey. .

I wrote this poem this time last year as I was a couple of weeks away from turning 28. Young in the grand scheme of life, but edging closer towards having spent half my life with M.E. However, it was the first birthday in the 13 years I’ve been ill that I didn’t cry. I didn’t panic. I didn’t feel like I was drowning. I didn’t feel that deep rooted sadness that swamps me once a year (I acknowledge how lucky I am that all consuming sadness is not an emotion that I experience often). I didn’t do anything special that day, I wasn’t surrounded by my friends. I simply spent a day beside the seaside with my lovely mum and breathed in the healing properties of the beautiful sea air. It felt like a real positive personal marker to find pockets of peace on a day that usually haunts me. 
So much has changed in the last year, but to the outside world it would appear I’m in exactly the same place. I may not have achieved anything monumental, I may not have had a year of adventure, fun with friends and a certainly haven’t fallen in love - that couldn’t be further from my reality, nor have I come anywhere near close to a complete recovery. But this year I’ve moved some personal mountains that took the might of a million giants. 
I hope that I keep hold of this sense of calm as the 13th of next month rolls round, and I enter the last year of my 20’s. I hope I stay kind to myself and my breath speaks louder than my inner critic. I have lots to look forward to over the next few months. I have big plans, and little plans and everything in between plans, that I’m working so hard on to bring to fruition. 
I know having a birthday approaching can be a difficult time for so many of you. Please know that you’re not alone in that and that it won’t always be a day you’ll dread. You’ll find your joy again 💛 xXx

Gone are the days of waking up with pastries (at least for a long while) but sometimes you still want a "sweet treat" to keep you grounded. I made these everything bars yesterday and they're really yummy and pretty healthy. Dark chocolate, sun & almond butters, slivered almonds, golden raisins, sea salt and gluten free pretzels (worst ingredient in there). I'm having one chunk with my morning coconut latte (sharing these with hubby) and reading more of this really great book. It's like he took everything we've ever heard or read about diet and demystified it and connected all the dots. Really great read and very informative and eye-opening.

I always think it’s fun to see Grand Central Station peaking through the buildings on 42nd. 
__
NYC is a compact island of buildings, cars and people. As nostalgic as it can be, it is also filled with #stress in many forms.
__
Lots to do, stimulation from noise, lights, motion. #Toxins in the air from exhaust, dry cleaning, pesticides, and more. 
__
I see in my patients how stress affects us. #Autoimmunity, leaky gut, #migraines, #anxiety, #fatigue. 
__
It’s all we can do to keep up with the stresses.
__
We check #cortisol #foodsensitivities #hormones #neurotransmitters #gutbacteria #toxins and more to find out the trouble Stress has caused and reverse it.

Your gut contains two-thirds of your immune system cells and it produces inflammatory cytokines whose function is to help cells communicate during an immune response. The cytokines produced by the microbiome also send signals to the brain to secrete the neurochemicals that support the inflammation response. A healthy microbiome will elicit a balanced immune response with just enough inflammation to do the job that then subsides when it’s no longer needed. But if you suffer from dysbiosis, this starts to wear down your gut lining, which can then become leaky.

Menopause is tough! Emotions all over the place, weight gain, brain fog, loss of muscle, painful joints, terrible sleep, bone loss and so much more. It doesn't have to be that way. Bioidenticalhormones hormones have the same chemical structure as those naturally produced by the body.
Some symptoms subside as early as 3 days, others can take up to a month.

I always make the effort to put myself together in the morning, because it’s part of what sets me up for the day ahead. But I’m equally just as happy to get home, shower and strip it all back at the end of the day! I actively make the effort every morning because I’ve learnt from past experience that I feel less ready to tackle the day when I don’t. It puts me in a better, more motivated frame of mind when I do. It’s also one thing that I can be in control of, when my health conditions make me feel like I’ve lost control at times.🦋💙 #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicallyfabulous #hypo #hypothyroid #hypothyroidie #hypothyroidism #underactivethyroid #thyroid

沖縄の海塩
#ぬちまーす 
今読んでる本に副腎疲労の人は、朝一杯のお水に海塩を小さじ半分入れて飲むと良い、とあったので買ってみました。
お塩は岩塩派だけれど、これはパウダー状で、本当にさらさら。塩分低くミネラル豊富❣️
こんなに入れたら塩っぱいだろうと思ったけど、全国塩っぱくない🤗むしろちょっと甘みが⁉️
たまたまメルマガ購読してる分子栄養学の先生もこの海塩をお勧めしてたから、本当にミネラル豊富みたいです❣️ミネラルは美容にもいいですよね❣️
夏はいつもふらふらになるので毎日スポーツドリンク飲んでたけど、糖分が多いから、これからはこちらを飲みたいと思います☺️️💕

I love me some #watermelon! It is so versatile and packed with vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids.

I've been going through watermelon like crazy lately.

I made a delicious salad using watermelon and #mint. Talk about #refreshing and #simple  Another great idea is tossing watermelon with basil, feta cheese (I'm currently avoiding dairy so I left this ingredient out) red onion and balsalmic vinegar. Amazing little summer #salad.

ALSO- watermelon punch! 👊

How to make 👇 
1. Blend 4 cups of cubed seedless watermelon until its a nicely blended juice
2. Add one can of frozen lemon or lime concentrate
3. Add 4 cups Club Soda or something similar to add some fizz. I used Lemon flavored @sanpellegrinofruitbeverages San Pellegrino.
3. Cut up lemon slices and throw in the punch bowl along with some ice.

and Bob's your uncle!! What is your favorite way to incorporate watermelon into your dishes? I'm always looking for new and interesting recipes! Hit me up!

Eat today, what your body will thank you for tomorrow. 
__
This is one of many mantras that I share with you in this post. They may sound familiar or even cliche', but they resonate with me after making a lifetimes worth of poor eating choices.  @medicalmedium has taught us that we will need to make up for each and every unhealthy meal that we put into our bodies. 
__
Your food choices provide you with either the purest and most effective form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. 
__
Are you concerned about the time it would take for you to prepare healthier food?  If you think you don't have time for healthy eating, you'll sooner or later have to find time for illness.  Unfortunately, health is often not valued until sickness comes. 
__
Are you concerned about what you might perceive as an extra cost for you to eat healthier? Your greatest wealth IS health. You can either pay for healthier choices now or pay for medical bills later. Which is really the more expensive?  Medicine will only mask your symptoms but wise food choices will heal you. 
__
Do you use junk food to console you? Food is fuel, not therapy.  The junk food that you craved for an hour, or the healthy body you’ve craved for a lifetime? It’s your decision. 
__
If your top concern is to lose weight, please know that you don’t need to eat LESS, you just need to eat RIGHT.  When you eat natural foods without a label, you no longer need to count calories. Health is not about the weight you lose, but about the health you gain.  There is no weight loss diet that will do for you what healthy eating does.
__
Eat plants - not food MADE in a plant.  If you don’t recognize an ingredient, your body won’t either. The key to eating healthy? Avoid any food that has a TV commercial.  Only eat what your great-great grandmother would recognize as food.
__
You are what you eat, so don’t be fast, cheap, easy or FAKE.
__
Stop eating C.R.A.P. -
🚫 C - carbonated drinks
🚫 R - refined sugars
🚫 A - artificial food
🚫 P - processed food
 __
Don't learn the hard way like I did. Take care of your body, because it’s the only place in which you have to live.
__
Yes, I got on a Pinterest quotes binge. 😂 Can you tell?

My morning line up. (Evening line up is quite similar.)
.
My journey of slowly unveiling some major health issues and then working closely with functional medicine docs to tackle the big and small stuff has been going on for over 4 years now.
.
It has been a arduous process and many times incredibly frustrating. I haven’t felt good since having my first son, and truthfully - the last two years I’ve felt my worst.
.
But like anything else, I consider this particular challenge in my life another opportunity for me to learn and use my experience to be of service to others.
.
Most days I wake up feeling pretty bad, but I am very hopeful that through lifestyle tweaks and treatment I will soon be back to peak performance (both mentally + physically).
.
It started with hypothyroidism and in the last two years evolved into adrenal fatigue syndrome (which is a battle).. And even though I was taking supplements for those things, I still felt terrible. So recently, a new slew of health challenges was discovered and well - more treatment has been underway.
.
Our way of life definitely feeds disease(s), and that’s why my work in helping high achieving individuals is so important to me. I firmly believe in pushing ourselves and taking action (it’s in my blood) - but I have learned over the years that if we don’t intentionally build in recovery, we pay a price with our physical and mental health.
.
Those who work with me 1:1 or within experiences know how I feel about this! 😉
.
No doubt I’ll be sharing more as I go through the journey.
For now, besides taking care of myself and my babes, my focus is on launching Ascend! (In a few days!!)

Stresssssss... My weight went up 6-7 lbs after a while of me cutting my carbs/cals and doing more exercise. I couldn’t get it to budge and I was continuously surprised when checking in. I was also having some difficulty sleeping and was anxious this last week.. Many people don’t look at factors other than intake and output but stress plays in a big role it fat loss and water retention. Cortisol causes high levels of insulin and blood sugar dips. Not great when you’re trying to lose some stubborn fat and your craving all the things you’re supposed to eat sparingly. 
Yesterday I ate about 3k cal, high carbs, got an amazing massage, smoked my CBD and binged on 13 reasons why and I’m 4 lbs lighter this morning. Bye bye water 👋🏻 💦

Good morning. Starting your day with a kick start breakfast! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Take the time to EAT! Your body will thank you.Getting my oil reading on enjoying our young living oils. My wife loves the Savvoy mineral makeup! Clean inside & out. tinyurl.com/LeahGenesisWellness Dr. Arland Hill at Harvest Hills Ranch. . . .
I missed these little crunchy crackers from Europe. Light, airy and perfectly craquant. Smeared with homemade almond butter and a drizzle of lavender honey, this was my go-to breakfast (and snack.) Stateside, my breakfast routine has gone the nutritional-smoothie route. .

With sudden onset of adrenal fatigue (read: STRESS!) I needed to up my breakfast game. Bone broth powder, MCT oil, licorice root, a zinc/copper combo, 1 tsp maca powder, 1 tb ground flaxseeds, beet root powder, mushroom powder, a heaping spoonful of cocoa powder, organic milk and lots of ice. Et voilà! .

EXCEPT on Saturday’s and Sunday’s when The Hubs cooks a full meal: farm fresh eggs, uncured bacon, simple sausage patties, and sweet potato hash browns. .

How do you breakfast?

When people try to place judgment on your desire to eat plant-based, it’s so important to know why you’re doing what you’re doing. Not everyone will understand and that’s okay. To each its own. There’s  no need to judge anyone. However, some will make assumptions. Some may even question your parenting decisions and think that you’re somehow depriving your kids by not feeding them a Standard American Diet (SAD). Often, judgment comes from a place of simply not knowing. You may be well-researched and fully understand your why, but don’t get upset when people don’t agree with you. You don’t have to explain yourself. Not everyone knows your story and that’s okay. 👌🏽It IS okay to go against the norm. What is your why? 🌱

Missing my #hiphop class and the girls so badly!!!! And craving for my #adrenaline 😪😢 CAN’T WAIT to go back to my #happiness SOON!!! #adrenalfatigue #ineedtogoback

I’m really loving this quote lately. Most of us have heard it, but it is deeply resonating with many people I know right now, including myself
.
.
.
With every goal, big or small, comes and equal journey. It’s easy to find ourselves lacking in patience if we don’t see the quick results TV and advertising promises us, but don’t lose hope! FIND JOY in whatever you are experiencing. Recognize it and call it out by name! Love on it for a bit!
.
.
.
For instance: my journey to health is DEFINITELY not 100% complete. I still get fatigue, I still get sick and all kinds of other things. But, learning how to heal has brought me closer to my family, allowed me to enjoy the outdoors more and is saving me tons of 💵 on weekly meal prep! Yay! These are all wins inside of my ultimate win!
.

💜What journey are you on right now? What joy can you find in the moment?💜

📱The German Federal Office for Radiation Protection (Bundesamt für Strahlenschutz) has a comprehensive database of the amount of radiation emitted from cell phones.

📱This chart was last updated February 2018.

📱It is speculated that radiation from cell phones can cause direct damage to the cell's DNA. The continual damage to the DNA could potentially cause the cell to mutate into a cancerous cell.

📱In today's world when we have our cell phones so close to our bodies 24 hours a day, it's good to understand your risks.

📱I think it's important for anyone with any type of Health Challenge to understand that this is an additional stressor for your body. There are things that you can do with your cell phone to reduce your exposure of harmful radiation.

1st day back on the mat in probably 3 weeks *
I’m tight. I’m stiff. Balance is good. Still strong. *
...just having some sunrise peaceful pondering this morning. I never do well when my husband is gone. I like having his bod in the house and his presence is essential to my peace. Just trying to navigate this morning so I can make it through brilliantly. *
I’ve discovered that when I miss him I go to our future home site. It’s where our future is. Just trying to connect
*
When it’s time to take time perspective changes. I’ve had to take time away from my yoga teaching at the gym to let my body recover, heal, recalibrate. #adrenalfatigue #recenter 
While that is super hard for me to do, it was greatly needed. Feeling more like myself again. Feeling refocused. .

I've been pushing for a greater understanding of adrenal fatigue and the endocrine system in regards to Veteran issues (especially during transition) for a hot minute. How come I have never heard of WeSoldierOn.org and the resiliency program? ***Link in Bio*** Has anyone been through this program? I've tried to create some of this on my own with myself and my husband but if I would have known there was something like this all ready out there I would have been advocating hard! Supplement therapy, sensory deprivation tank therapy, alpha stim electrotherapy (some of you MARSOC guys might be familiar with those) and CPAP therapy have all been treatments I've seen first hand work to provide significant relief that happen to target symptoms related to hormonal imbalance. Focusing and understanding the individual physical symptoms of military transition, as well as mental/emotional challenges is (in my opinion) critical in ensuring Veterans success post service. More needs to talked about within the community to ensure change within the VA and DOD systems on how they approach transition and how best to provide adequate treatment. In the interim please check out this resource and definitely give me feedback if you decide to utilize this resource and how it works for you! #veteranadvocate #veteran #ptsd #adrenalfatigue #militarytransition #veteranfamily #veteranhealth #marines #army #navy #airforce

62 days isn't that long, considering what could be changed for the rest of your life. People always ask us how we eat so healthy all the time, it's our life and we know no different now. It wasn't easy at first to give up all the foods we no longer eat but we were committed to change our health around and the consistency of staying away from junk paid off! It definitely won't be easy but it will be worth it!

Round 3! Basil smells like summer in a bottle. I use it daily (2 drops on the bottom of each foot every morning) to combat adrenal fatigue. Basil is your ally for protection against malaise and  emotional vulnerability. It will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to grow! 🌱 #basil #plantmedicine #doterra #doterraessentialoils #fatigue #adrenalfatigue #aromatherapy #essentialoils #wellnessadvocate

I'm a Heart Based Entrepreneur 💖✨ I never realized this until I found my tribe and when that term was used in the first training, I knew I had found the right place to bare my soul, open up my own heart and learn with intensity. 
Helping people release emotions, helping them find and release what doesn't serve them so that they can heal physically, emotionally, spiritually, relationally, and financially is beautiful.

When one's heart is healed, they can move mountains and conquer all. 💖✨#emotioncodepractitioner #theemotioncode #emotioncode #energyhealing #girlbossentrepeneur #girlbosslife #heartbasedentrepreneur #committedtoserve .

🔹WHAT CAUSES A SLOW METABOLISM⁉️ •
1️⃣ Chronic dieting/ eating in a caloric deficit for prolonged periods of time.
2️⃣Nutrient deficiencies: iodine/ selenium and tyrosine which are cofators for thyroid hormone (T4 and T3) production.
3️⃣High levels of inflammation: This increases Reverse T3 which acts like the brakes on your metabolism.
4️⃣Stress: Anytime there is physical/chemical/emotional stress the body will increase the amount of Reverse T3 and therefore lowering the amount of T3 active hormone responsible for your metabolic rate.

Hey guys, @joshfuhrer here. I’ve decided to make a special IG account for all my health-related posts, so I can build a deeper relationship with all of you who may be struggling with chronic autoimmune conditions. I decided to call this account Citizen Healer, because for years, I’ve struggled with so many health challenges, and found the best answers came not from MDs, but from other folks like me who struggle with their own health issues. 
Here’s my story: when I was 12, I developed a spot of psoriasis on my back. One became two, which became three. My mom took me to a dermatologist, who shot me up with steroids. A few months later, I’d be back for more, because the spots were back, too. Fast forward to age 24, and I’m in a near fatal car accident that left my body in shambles. Broken bones, head trauma, and a theatre career over. In the year that followed, My health went steadily downhill. The psoriasis exploded to cover 75% of my body, my right shoulder froze up, and my spine started to degrade to the point where I could hardly move. At age 25, I spent two years in bed, unable to go to school or hold down a job. I would put my trust in medical institutions and smart people in white lab coats to figure out what was wrong and to offer answers, and would walk away empty handed in terms of getting answers to my very challenged health. I remember one doctor in particular telling me to take a Tylenol. As if that was going to do anything. 
I eventually found a naturopath that specialized in chelation for heavy metals, and after some tests, discovered my mercury levels to be at 80ppm. Nearly 30 times the level considered dangerous. After several years of chelation, my health improved somewhat, but not anywhere close to entirely.

A few years later, a friend mentioned to me a light therapy for psoriasis that looked promising. I still had no idea what the cause of my poor health was, but I knew I want to try anything that would help. I was desperate. After a few rounds of light therapy, my skin was completely healed. But the worst was yet to come.

Broken bones, head trauma, and a theatre career over. In the year that followed, My health went steadily downhill. The psoriasis exploded to cover 75% of my body, my right shoulder froze up, and my spine started to degrade to the point where I could hardly move. At age 25, I spent two years in bed, unable to go to school or hold down a job. I would put my trust in medical institutions and smart people in white lab coats to figure out what was wrong and to offer answers, and would walk away empty handed in terms of getting answers to my very challenged health. I remember one doctor in particular telling me to take a Tylenol. As if that was going to do anything. I eventually found a naturopath that specialized in chelation for heavy metals, and after some tests, discovered my mercury levels to be at 80ppm. Nearly 30 times the level considered dangerous. After several years of chelation, my health improved somewhat, but not anywhere close to entirely. A few years later, a friend mentioned to me a light therapy for psoriasis that looked promising. I still had no idea what the cause of my poor health was, but I knew I want to try anything that would help. I was desperate. After a few rounds of light therapy, my skin was completely healed. But the worst was yet to come. More in comments below 👇
Ever feel like you keep going back to the same song? That same song in your head, those same feelings, play over and over over. 
Do you want something more? Something better? 
Your heart is longing for something more...it’s speaking to you...it’s time for a new “song”. Many of us want to achieve greatness, to live the best life we are called to be but those blocks keep us from getting there. 
Once those blocks have been cleared, many clients say the defensiveness is gone and little things no longer irritate them, and they are able to receive and give love at a greater capacity.

Your Best Self starts August 13th and I don’t want you to miss it!!! There are a limited number of tickets because I like to keep these small and intimate, a safe place to work through underlying issues that prevent health and weight release.

We will be reading through Thin Within, and you will get one on one coaching sessions to heal from issues from your past as well as I will work with you to help you find your whole body pleaser foods.

We will have two exclusive webinars for question and answer time, bonus EC sessions and a place to build community. 
You don’t want to miss out on this!!!! Here’s what one of the participants had to say about their experience with the Your Best Self series: “My experience with Your Best Self, EC sessions and Thin Within = 10.  The daily nuggets were very encouraging.  During this process I got rid of self-condemnation and legalism when it comes to food.  I will definitely recommend Your Best Self to others.  I'm looking forward to starting the book again.” ***Event link to purchase tickets is in BIO*** .
