Summer Fruit – How Much Sugar?

Posted by:

It’s Summer time and the fruits and veggies are coming into abundance. Each summer I can hardly wait for those big, ripe, juicy organic cherries and grapes to arrive at the markets. Sadly, but honestly, I admit to gorging on more than a few in any one sitting. It’s healthy fruit, right? Well, while they’re healthy, they do contain natural sugars, so it’s important to be mindful in keeping helpings to a palm sized serving.

Want to know which of our ...

Where to Begin?

Posted by:

I can’t tell you how many times my readers tell me that they really want to live a more “non-toxic” lifestyle but they don’t know where to begin. They also express concerns about doing this in an affordable way. Believe me, I know. I started this journey 15 years ago. I admit it can be overwhelming, but I do have a few suggestions for making the transition easier!

I’d like to add that it’s important to give yourself a high five ...

The Spoils of Oils!

Posted by:

I use them when I bathe and shower, as room fresheners in diffusers, and as daily uplifting or calming modalities. Lots of us also love their fragrances in potpourri.  They are wonderful as part of natural cleaning products. I also use them in my Reiki practice, and I’ll bet many of you who practice yoga have experienced them in class in one fashion or another. Many of us enjoy them in herbal teas too!

Essential oils offer so much. Did you ...

Naked as a Jaybird?

Posted by:

Deodorants vs. antiperspirants! A tricky, personal topic but certainly important when considering one’s daily hygiene!

And don’t we all seem to need it more now that the temps are rising and we are all a little “schweddy” these days 🙂 While we need a product that works, it’s also important to find one that doesn’t list ingredients that could potentially cause health issues down the road. And how about something for the active pre-teens in our lives that is also safe! ...

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 ...

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 ...

This Balm is the Bomb!

I finally found it! An amazing four-in-one skin care facial product that cleanses, removes make-up exquisitely, moisturizes and can be used as a mask as well. And let me not forget that there are no hidden toxic chemicals either. You may ask “Where can I get this incredible product and tell me more!” Billed as a “Best Seller,” this cleansing balm is heaven on my face!! While we love our Colorado climate, it’s dry and really dry during the winter. ...

Cosmetic Facelifts with Acupuncture, You Say?

Posted by:

“Botox is so passé. Cosmetic acupuncture is where it’s at,” says a woman interviewed three years ago in the Daily Mail. What? Apparently it’s the latest weapon in anti-aging with several A-list stars, including Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth and Angelina. Like them or not, these women look great.  This growing movement is the result of women being afraid of fillers and Botox, according

to facial acupuncturist, Samara Reid, who’s been in the business for 20 years. This non-painful, non-toxic technique takes roughly ...

The Allure of Botox

Posted by:

Botox, dubbed as “the little neurotoxin that could,” by USA Today. It’s a household name now, isn’t it? Have you tried it? Is it safe? Several friends I know use it to calm forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and lines around the face. I have to admit they look dang good! I’ve been offered the opportunity to try it. Most of you know I’m about living naturally and cleanly. I am not a fan of putting foreign substances, especially known toxins, ...
