Depressed? Spice up your Life!

Ciao,

Every now and again…we all might feel a little blue. While my red blood does run true blue, I am not talking about that. I am talking about when our minds just don’t feel that happy or excited about life. As your body, this is very concerning to me because I want you to, not only be happy, but healthy too. It may seem easier to pop a pill or pour a ‘not so healthy’ beverage for yourself instead of something else… but in the long run this will not help, but actually hurt the both of us more. So, what am I suggesting? I am suggesting you spice up your life! By adding this simple spice to your diet you can easily increase your mood and balance your attitude.  So say bye-bye to the blues!

You know I am always on the look out for you!

I love you,

Your Body!

HEALTH TIP OF THE DAY: TURMERIC CAN HELP BOOST YOUR MOOD AND WARD OFF DEPRESSION!

Recent research published in Phytotherapy Research, indicates that the
spice turmeric, which is what gives curry that pretty orange color, is a highly potent spice that helps to boost moods naturally. The active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin, has also been shown to assist the body in combating a variety of health issues from various cancers, to diabetes, and heart disease. This spice has been used in India for years and has many healing properties both internally and externally. The study indicated that turmeric was more effective at balancing moods in extremely depressed people when compared to its medical counterpart, Prozac – which has been linked to other serious health issues like suicidal tendencies and mental disorders. Turmeric seems to be a safe, inexpensive, effective, and yummy way to combat depression naturally.

I personally consume turmeric almost daily. It is a great spice to cook and juice with, and also sprinkle on salads or dips. One of my favorite ways to consume turmeric is to sprinkle on a fresh avocado and eat with a spoon. It is also amazing in soups and even hot tea!  So spice up your life and health with this potent healing ingredient. Check out my Raw Cashew Curry recipe below that contains this happy spice!

How Emotions Get Trapped

Did you know that every time you have a negative emotion it actually gets stuck in my cells and can cause damage to my organs, tissues, and glands? Not to mention, these emotions don’t usually make you feel very nice, do they?

What you may not realize is, that if you do not release these negative emotions they can stay trapped inside me for years, even life times. They affect the way you may treat others, how you perceive the world, and most of all how healthy I am.

All in all, negative emotions are not good for either one of us, so let’s make a pact that we won’t hang on to them any longer. Ok? Promise? Ok, good!

I Love You!

nlp_nuroHEALTH TIP OF THE DAY: HOW TO RELEASE NEGATIVE EMOTIONS

Did you know that the imprint period in the human mind that creates most of our thoughts and beliefs today comes from when we were between the ages of 2 and 8 years old? We don’t think of ourselves as children anymore, but a lot of our unconscious processes that dictate our behavior now, come from things we learned as children. Some may be positive, but often lots are negative.  Most people have no idea how to release negative emotions from the body. We don’t understand the powerful effect this can have on our health, life, relationships, and careers.  This is not something we are taught growing up, in school, or even in college. It seems as though as we grow up and realize there may be some things that aren’t quite right, we  may start to search for answers. The good news is there are several ways to release negative emotions from the body such as [NLP(neural linguistic programing), Hypnosis, and EFT(emotional freedom technique). All are designed to physically and mentally release emotions from the body so that they can not harm us or hold us back.  If these emotions are not released, the effects on the body and your life can be devastating. With these techniques people can easily and effortlessly release negative emotions, limiting beliefs, health problems, and have an overall better understanding of themselves and their world. The important thing is to be aware of how you are functioning daily. If you feel like something is off, it is probably because you are holding on to negative emotions. Becoming aware is the first step, wanting to make a chance is the second, and third, you must get into action to make that change.
