When I look at my beautiful daughter I hate that I passed on to her my hormonal imbalances!
But what she has that I didn’t have at her age is so much more understanding of it…and how to overcome and transform her health!
One way our hormones can be imbalanced is being estrogen dominant.
Estrogen dominance can be very common, and despite knowing the signs and symptoms of this condition, you should also know what to do if you are suffering from it.
💧The 10 most common symptoms of estrogen dominance:
Abnormal menstrual periods
Bad PMS (breast tenderness/swelling, mood swings, and headaches)
Weight gain (especially hips and abs)
Here are the steps you should follow in order to restore the healthy hormonal balance in the body:
💜Step 1: Eliminate Xenoestrogens
We are constantly being exposed to various chemicals, and one of them is “xenoestrogen,” which can mimic estrogen in the body.
Therefore, in order to avoid these adverse effects, you should avoid the use of the following top offenders:
Plastic water bottles
Cosmetics, makeup, and toiletries
Non-organic dairy, produce
Soy protein isolate
Birth control pill
💜Step 2: Elimination (ie: poo 💩)
This step is essential as it will ensure the removal of estrogen, and prevent its re-entrance into the bloodstream in the case of chronic constipation.
Make sure you are having daily bowel movements, and in case you are not:
Drink 2-3L of water daily
Increase the intake of fiber-rich foods
Increase the intake of vegetables with every meal.
💧Add the TerraGreens to ensure extra fruits and veggies!

To promote bowel movements, supplement with magnesium citrate or Triphala
Moreover, in order to help the removal of waste and toxins from the body, you should also:
Exercise or go to a sauna to stimulate sweating
Breathe deeply to support the lungs
Massage your body to support the lymph
Use a dry skin brush to eliminate dead skin cell.
Use your oils with dry brushing!

💜Step 3: Improve Liver Health and Estrogen Detoxification
Estrogen is effectively removed by a well-functioning liver. In the first stage, the liver turns harmful estrogen intro milder, weaker forms of estrogen, and in the second stage, it converts it into a water-soluble form, so you can eliminate it through the stool or urine.
Yet, the liver won’t be able to fulfill its function if the body lacks important nutrients, or it is overburdened with other chemicals, accumulated due to the use of processed foods, drugs, and alcohol.
To support the function of the liver, you should:
Drink lots of filtrated water
Do not drink alcohol
Each a real, whole-foods based diet
Eat foods that support liver health, such as kale, dandelion greens, beets, garlic, eggs, dark leafy greens, artichoke, onions, leeks, shallots, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, etc.)
Taking supplements that are rich in detoxifying vitamins and minerals is super helpful.
In order to kick start your metabolism and improve your overall healthy by detoxifying and energizing the body try:
💧cleanse and restore kit/system
Finally center yourself each day!!!
Find 5-10 minutes at least once if not twice a day to truly reflect on your whole health!
Sometimes when our estrogen is out of whack and we’ve done all the physical and nutritional needs then that means we have some mental, emotional, spiritual stuff we need to address.
But we aren’t going to know unless we stop to center ourselves and find some alignment within ourselves!
How are your hormones?!

I look forward to sharing more with you soon!

Hugs and blessings always,
I remember the first time I ever experienced an AromaTouch technique…I was becoming certified to do the work on others.
It was an amazing feeling. And I realized I needed to experience this more often. It was a way I could easily incorporate self care and love of self.
So I’m excited that this May’s Wellness Workshop is all about this amazing detox system I provide!
I will be covering what it’s all about….the 8 oils that are used and why…..
The AromaTouch Technique is an amazing experience to connect with our health.
It allows us to address and strengthen our physical and emotional health.
During May’s workshop we are going to dive deep into it how we can nurture our self care, detox, and support our whole health with the AromaTouch technique.
With Mother’s Day in May let’s honor our femininity, our self care needs, and see how we can start incorporating things like an AromaTouch technique on a consistent basis.
This months class will also have some simple “sample” options to experience.
There will also be purchase options available to take home that day.
Have you ever thought about how self care can help you with detoxing this spring?!
Save your seat 👇👇👇….
Don’t forget to take a moment on this amazing Monday to sit, pray, reflect, Journal, tap…..and oil up!
Prayers and hugs always,
Do you sleep in on Saturday or Sunday?
I don’t typically sleep in…..and technically I didn’t this morning! BUT….I did fall back asleep while I was doing my morning prayers….lol!
Buuut…..I needed to give myself grace…..my body was ready for some rest. I had a full week with my daughters schooling. She is finishing up her 10th grade work this month and we will start entering into her junior year of schooling in July…..whew…..the time flies by.
Talk about needing a lot of peace!
And then I read in the paper (which let me tell you I don’t keep up on current news very good….cause it just hurts my heart too much!)……but I read on the front page this morning about the shooting in a Mosque that was actually posted on Facebook and I felt the need for peace even greater.
We as parents stand and get up each day doing what we think is best to prepare our kiddos for the adult world. We have to try to not transfer our fears to them. Fears that may have been from our own past. Fears of: are they are going to make it?
And I have to tell you I DON’T WALK IN FEAR. I really am quite relaxed and laid back….heck my sweet hubby probably thinks I don’t worry enough, or that I am too cheery or gentle about other things.
BUT…..when world events slap me in the face I have to pause…..and I can either choose to think: I can’t send my daughter off into that….
OR….I can choose to lean on God’s promise of “fear no evil”!
I HAVE TO DO THAT!
If I don’t I will box her up in bubble wrap and send her off to some remote island…..and then NO ONE would be able to experience all her amazing gifts and talents.
It would also mean I was giving into the fear the enemy wants us to have…..and with fear brings anger, hate, ugliness, and so much more.
So I KNOW that my rest this morning was a way that my body was saying take in some peace…..Lent has just begun and there is much healing to still take place…..not just for you but for the world!
I hope today you will join me in a moment of prayer for those whose lives were taken in New Zealand…and all the loved ones who have to heal from the devastation left behind….
But I also DARE to ask you humbly…..please pray for the soul of the shooter…..his is obviously so distraught….that he chose to cross a line to enter fully into an evil act……one he can’t take back. He turned his back on God in such a way that it has to have us wonder…..WHAT is HIS pain…..WHY!?
As always please set aside each day to sit…pray….journal….tap….and oil up!
Many blessings and hugs always,
PS….Please take a moment and SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel so you never miss a video full of TRANSFORMATION tips, training, and so much more!
Recently I’ve been dealing with some inflammation that has had me concerned…
This quote from St. Francis reminds me that there IS greatness to discover with all of this with great patience.
So I will sit with Him and be patient as I listen to what He has to share with me….as I listen what my body is trying to tell me!
What challenge are you needing to be patient about?!
Sit with this….pray about it….journal…tap and oil up!!!

Today Catholics all over the world started their new year celebrating the Solemnity of Mary!
It had me reflecting on how sooo many of us create New Years resolutions…..and these can be good….but they sometimes don’t serve us well!
They don’t serve our higher purpose…the purpose of being Christ to the world….to shine….to love!
To do this it’s two fold:
1. Love yourself fully in order to love others like Christ did!
2. Look to Mary….how she bound her will in order to live fully and completely in Gods will!
What are your 2019 resolutions?
Are they resolutions that will draw you closer to Christ?
Will your desire to lose weight serve the greater good for Him? Meaning by bringing down inflammation, healthy heart, move easier…..will those grant you the ability to be able to do service, live longer, and love others more fully?!
Or will they be about getting into the cute dress? (Now don’t get me wrong I like looking cute in my black dress too 🥰….but it shouldn’t be my primary reason!)
When we focus on our health to care for ourselves and serve Him….then the byproduct of looking and feeling great in our clothes are more rewarding and peaceful….not fearful!
Sit tonight with this….pray about it….journal….tap…and oil up!
Blessings and hugs always!
PS…January Deals tab is updated with some amazing ideas for starting a wellness journey with me this month!
Facebook live tomorrow to kick start your metabolism!
I’ve been taking some much needed self care time!
Time to reflect….ponder…and dream!!!
I’ve been filling up journal pages faster than I can write…..so when I’m not writing on paper I’m writing in my head!
Some of what I’ve been writing and reflecting on is 2019….
How do I hope to be the best version of myself?
How do I plan on reaching some pretty big goals?!
And how do I plan on making sure I’m constantly surrendering to His will and not mine?
I don’t have all the answers or thoughts written out yet….but that’s what I’ve been up to the last two weeks and well I plan on continuing through this month to get laser focused on the essentials of a truly WHOLE-life-giving 2019!
Have you set your 2019 goals?
Have you taken the time to unplug from all distractions so you can be alone with the Lord and hear His thoughts for you?!
How can you live an authentic, transforming 2019?!
Sit…pray….tap….and oil up!!
My hugs and prayers always,
