Tomorrow is Nyepi Day, the Balinese New Year. For 24 hours the entire island goes dark and silent – no electricity, light, or going out, even the airport is closed! Have you ever thought of having a silent day?!
Here’s my opinion of the extreme diets being promoted today!
If you are using dieting, cleanses, and fasting to stop binge eating or compulsive overeating, please stop! It only makes it worse.
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.
Transitioning off of a diet you have been on for a very long time is never easy. I can definitely admit that!! As most everyone knows, it’s only been in recent years that I started eating meats, fish and animal products again. I was a strict vegetarian for 20 years and on a 100% raw vegan diet for almost 4 years following that, but because of a vitamin B12 deficiency I developed while on the raw vegan diet, I decided to incorporate meats, fish, seafood and animal products back into my diet to reverse the deficiency. That dietary change was massive for me, on all levels, and I can be the first one to admit that during the transition I fumbled and made mistakes. In today’s video I share the three biggest mistakes I made during the first 6 months of transitioning off of the raw vegan diet and what I learned from that experience.
