Is Your Liver Congested? How a Gentle Detox Can Help

To be alive today means to be exposed to a constant barrage of environmental toxins. We’re exposed to them through the air that we breathe, the foods that we ingest, and the personal care items, such as lotions, deodorants, hair products, and perfumes that meet our skin each day. While our bodies have an advanced detoxification system—led by the workhorse organ the liver—to filter out these toxins, it’s possible for a toxic backlog to occur and for liver function to suffer as a result. When this happens, a person might have what I refer to as a congested liver. This …

Being careful not to slide down the slippery slope of laughing at yourself from the angle of shame is essential, as that is psychologically toxic and ultimately closes the mind …

Dieting Myths and Truths

Dieting Myths and Truths! Let’s face it:  our society really subscribes to “instant gratification” in many forms.  We want Amazon Prime, so we can get our new jeans within a day. We limit our purchases to under 20 items so we can get in the speedy lane at the grocery store. I personally get annoyed when my business cards aren’t ready within 24 hours.  In a time where we are used to receiving what we want, WHEN we want it, it is no wonder people are always looking for the next new diet or miracle pill that guarantees they lose …
