Zents – Born out of Healing

Posted by:

How about a skincare company that shares this image and saying? You don’t see this every day, right?! And there are MORE where that came from-Organic, eco- and mindfulness-oriented all at the same time! Self-Care and global LOVE and HEALING all beautifully wrapped up in the world of “Presence.”

My personal journey with Zents started six years ago when I picked up an organic body oil that smelled DIVINE- light in fragrance  and yet luxurious on my body. I am extremely ...

Cosmetic Acupuncture Works!

Posted by:

Hey readers! Okay, so you know I practice what I preach :-). A year ago I wrote a blog post about cosmetic acupuncture. During my research, I was fortunate to find Dr. Martha Lucas who lives right here in Denver! I went to see Dr. Lucas with these areas of concern: facial age spots, sagging jawline, neck lines and puffy eyes.

As promised, I set up a series of 10 sessions with her a few months ago and am happy to ...

Who Loves YOU?

Posted by:

Today is Valentine’s Day…a day of romance and love. Now, more than ever, I am convinced that we can’t truly offer love to others unless we offer love to ourselves. Each year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special “Valentine”. This year, how about marking the day with a commitment to loving one’s self in the coming year? I’m not going to muddle this post with any extra text, I just invite you to ...

Soup’s On – A Flu Fighter and More!

Posted by:

We’re well into winter, some places more so than others, and nothing says comfort like a good, healthy, steaming bowl of soup when it’s cold outside! Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite and relatively easy to make recipes: Mushroom-Spinach Soup with Cinnamon, Coriander and Cumin!

Did you know that one needs to cook mushrooms to get the nutritional benefits from them? I used to throw them raw on my salads but now I know better. The Asian culture ...

Let Your Light Shine!

Posted by:

As we roll into another year, I’m furthering my journey of Self-Care. Most of us were taught to think of others first, right? What I’ve learned is that my health, all the aspects of it, function more optimally when I’m not trying to “fix and control” with me being at the bottom of the list. I’ve learned to bring awareness to how I’m feeling.

The body doesn’t lie. We’re all in the same boat, bailing water with information overload and excess ...

Helping Children with Holiday Stress

Posted by:

Last year I wrote about sensory overload during the holidays, especially for the children in our lives. Since I wrote that there’s a wonderful new book out that could be the early and beautiful gift that keeps on giving. “I AM PEACE – a Book of Mindfulness,” was written by author Susan Verde, who has written several other children’s books including “I Am Yoga.” This amazing book helps children manage their emotions while learning to be mindful, using imagination and ...

Let’s Talk – BBC and KISS!

Posted by:

Nope, not referring to the British Broadcasting Corporation. Try this one on – “Before Breast Cancer!” Let’s get serious about PREVENTION!

Okay, we’re all seeing it –“Breast Cancer Awareness” month. Awareness is a good thing, but as a breast cancer survivor it bothers me that PREVENTION isn’t at the top of the list. Research and shopping to support research for a cure is a noble idea but how can we personally empower ourselves to minimize getting a breast cancer diagnosis to ...

Heal Yourself – Pain Management that Works!

Posted by:

What would you say if you knew that a pain management program had a remarkably high success rate? And what if the program could treat you without drugs or surgery? What if it’s also simple and involves no heavy equipment?  I’d say, “tell me more!”

While training for a summer week-long bike ride a few months ago, I injured my back. I was in major pain a mere month out from our trip. The fact that I have a childhood scoliosis ...
