I once did a video talking about my husband’s diet, how he eats a traditional Indonesian diet of white rice, vegetables and some sort of animal or vegetable protein three times a day, everyday. Someone wrote me asking what my opinion of white rice is, is it really all that unhealthy as they say it is in the West, or is it ok to eat it as part of a healthy diet? Half the world’s population eats a rice-based diet (similar to what my husband’s eats), and they certainly aren’t eating brown rice or other whole grain rices, so is white rice all that bad? Here’s my opinion!!
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 about that!!!
I recently received a request to talk about how to have more energy in the morning without coffee. For many people giving up coffee is quite daunting, they can hardly imagine what their morning would be like, let alone their day! One bit of reassurance I can give anyone in this situation is it’s not as bad as you think, in fact after a few days of being caffeine-free you might notice your mood is much better than it was before, energy levels are good, and overall you feel more balanced without the caffeine highs and lows…

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!
