There are few ‘myths’ floating around natural health circles that bother me, one being that morning sickness is a result of being too toxic. Over the years I’ve heard people say this and when I was pregnant and had morning sickness throughout my entire pregnancy, I received emails and comments from people telling me I must be very toxic to be having so much morning sickness and for so long! Do I agree with this view, no, not at all, and in today’s video I discuss why and what I believe can be the contributing factors that can cause morning sickness and some of the things one can do to eliminate it or decrease it.

Someone recently left a comment on one of my videos on YouTube if I felt lonely being a stay-at-home-mom and living so far away. I have to say since the person posted the question, it’s something I have been thinking a lot about. Being an expat living in Indonesia and being a new mom has its set of challenges, including the fact that I haven’t been home in 3 years (and have barely left Indonesia in that time either!!). So yes, I have had my bouts of loneliness and even at times homesickness, but on the other end of things the distance has deepened my relationships and appreciation for family and friends back at home, plus given me the big push I need to cultivate new friendships here. Loneliness is not necessarily a bad thing, in fact if I start feeling like loneliness is setting in I use that as a ‘red alert’ that something in my daily life needs some changing and I need to get out more and socialize more. As long as I’m proactive about the loneliness, it only enriches my life even more.

The one thing I am asked most about and receive the most requests to make a video on is Candida. Hands down! I receive at least one email a week asking me about Candida, and every month when I host the 7 Day Raw Food Challenge and the 10 Day Juice Fasting Program there is always at least one participant who has recently been diagnosed with it. Whether one is self-diagnosed, been told by a friend they probably have it, or a natural health practitioner has diagnosed them with it, in the alternative health/natural health community, Candida is rampant! Do I think all these people have Candida, not everyone, no! In fact sadly, I believe many are being misdiagnosed and their symptoms of other issues are being overlooked. Candida has become a blanket diagnosis for just about everything and it’s important for people to educate themselves as to what Candida really is and perhaps too, get a second opinion to know for sure.

I can be!! Being serious is great when making things happen and getting things done, but it can also put a damper on things and be the source of overwhelm, disappointment, stress, unhappiness and discord in relationships. It’s all about finding balance and sometimes we just need to lighten up!!

“Do I think wheat gluten is the worst thing ever?” I get asked this a lot! I think white flour is, but not necessarily barley, rye, wheat berries and spelt that contain wheat gluten. There’s a big difference between the two. If someone has celiac sprue (wheat gluten allergy) or a wheat gluten sensitivity, than yes, cut all foods that contain wheat gluten out of your diet, but for the rest of the population I don’t think people need to go to that extreme. In today’s world there are so many fad diets and extreme eating styles that cause more worry and stress than any benefits, and to me, gluten-free is one of them. I also believe people get “flour-free’ or “white flour-free” confused with “gluten-free!” Yes, please cut out all white flour from you diet (or as much as possible), there isn’t any health benefits from eating goods containing white flour, but to cut out barley, rye, and other whole grains, I don’t see the reasoning unless someone has an allergy or sensitivity to it, or is seriously over eating it.
