I recently received an email from someone asking if I did or changed anything in my diet or lifestyle to boost my fertility to get pregnant. As everyone knows, I’ve been on this health journey for a while and the impetus for doing so came from being diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) in my 20s. Through big diet and lifestyle changes I was able to reverse the PCOS, regain my fertility, get super healthy, and go on to getting pregnant and giving birth to my daughter Luna Ray last year! Huge stuff! So yes, I did a lot to get to where I am now, and in today’s video I talk all about that!!!

Hibiscus Tea Recipe - www.RadianceCentral.com

One of my favourite teas is hibiscus tea, and luckily here in Bali I can actually grow the flowers in my garden (the above photo is taken at my home!). There are many different ways to prepare hibiscus tea, and I’d have to say my favourite way is to add a little sweetener and some lime. I love this hot or over ice!

For those that have high blood pressure, hibiscus tea is well known to lower blood pressure (drink it daily without any sweetener!!), and also helps improve circulation. It’s also packed with anti-oxidents, so therefore it’s also a great anti-inflammatory as well!

Below is my favourite hibiscus tea recipe, plus a video showing how to make the tea using fresh flowers. You can always substitute the fresh flowers with loose dried hibiscus flowers or hibiscus tea bags (which are available at most health food stores or large grocery stores, sometime sold under the name rosella, roselle, sorelle, etc.).

Hibiscus Tea Recipe - www.RadianceCentral.com

Hibiscus & Lime Tea (makes 1 serving)
1 Fresh Hibsicus Flower (or 2-3 dried Hibiscus Flowers or 1 Hibiscus tea bag)
1 to 2 tsps Raw Honey (if like sweet tea use 1 Tbsp of Raw Honey)
1/2 wedge of fresh Lime
1 Cup boiling Water

Directions:
1- Remove stem and stamen from the Hibiscus flower (skip this step if using dried hibiscus)
2- Place fresh or dried flower(s) in cup, mug or tea pot and pour hot water over flower(s).
3- If using a fresh hibiscus flower, let sit for 5-10 minutes, if using dried hibiscus, can soak for a minimum of 10 minutes, and even up to a few days!
4- Remove flower(s) from hot water.
5- Add honey and lime to tea.
6- Serve hot or let cool and serve over ice as an iced tea.
Enjoy!!

The question about flour and where it fits into a healthy diet comes up a lot! I know how attached people are to foods made with flour like pasta, bread, baked goods, cereals, etc.. I know it’s not easy to give up and many people try to find a ‘healthier’ version of their favourite foods which are perhaps made out of whole grain flour instead of white flour– but is this stuff healthy? Should you be eating it? In today’s video I give my opinion!

I get a lot of emails from people describing their health conditions and illnesses and asking me if they change their diet, will it cure the health condition? As much as I would love to give an answer, I can’t! Sometimes changing one’s diet can cure an illness or disease, sometimes alone it can’t! One thing I do know is if you start eating healthy you will make your body stronger and support it’s healing process. Whether you need to incorporate another healing modality (perhaps holistic medicine or conventional allopathic medicine, or both), is an individual thing, and it really depends on the health condition and the person’s health and body. No matter what, you will benefit from eating healthy and it’s worth every effort!
