From travelling back and forth to British Columbia to New York and back to British Columbia, my girls and I have been in airplanes, hotels, cars, campers and more hotels since mid July and are still travelling! Some people would think tackling a juice cleanse while travelling isn't the best idea but as in all aspects of life you need to trust your intuition and do what you feel is best for your body. Chyanne and I decided that in these final three days of her portion of the trip our days allowed for us to concentrate on a 3 day cleanse. We have access to the pools, hot tub and a great gym right downstairs so we figured with our toned down schedule (well its less busy then work/school) we can do it! Some great tips are:
We are so excited these days as we have our new European based Vega and Bio Pulsar machines up and running and we have been amazed on how this technology is helping us determine our client's food sensitivities so they can eliminate them from their diet for 4wks and start building up their immune systems again!
What is the difference between a food sensitivity and a food allergy?
Simply put, a food allergy is immediate, can be severe or life threatening and food sensitivity or food intolerance is usually less serious and often limited to the digestive system.
What causes people to be sensitive to certain foods?
This usually centers around the digestive system (our guts) and since our guts are our "second brain" STRESS could be a factor.
As we tend to eat the same foods day in/day out it is possible to develop intolerances to foods, even healthy foods, that you eat often. Lactose, gluten and food intolerances in general are very mysterious and no two people react the same way to the foods they eat.
The sulfites used in canned food, packaged foods and even dried fruit can cause adverse reactions and even trigger asthma attacks in sensitive people. The absence of certain enzymes such as Lactose can make it hard on the system to digest milk and milk products and our system is so advanced that we can pin point exactly if its the enzyme and if its milk in general or some other form of dairy such as cream and cottage cheese.
Some people react to the histimines in foods such as cheese, wines, certain fish (tuna and mackerel) and eating these foods may cause what seems to be an allergic reaction with the stuffy nose, watery eyes etc.
So book a Whole Body Scan and find out what your body is sensitive to and see if you are deficient in any vitamins and minerals. Let us show you how your body is handling this wonderful world of ours! Book a scan and you will be fascinated with the results!
Dead Sea Salts has an extreme content of salts and minerals that does not exist anywhere else in the world. They have high concentrations of Magnesium (aids in maintaining the proper pH balance), Sodium (helps water balance in the body), Calcium (hypo-allergenic, supports bones) and Bromine (relaxing, anti-inflammatory) just to name a few.
Dead Sea Salts can assist with certain types of skin conditions by restoring lost essential minerals thus giving the skin a more healthy glow and youthful appearance. As the salts absorb moisture they help detoxify the body, which includes absorbing cellulite and toxins through the pores of the skin. They relieve sore muscles, arthritic and rheumatoid pain, psoriasis, eczema, tension headaches, and joint and foot aches.
The Healing Center's Dead Sea salts are 100% pure authentic Dead Sea Salts, are unscented and contain no fillers or additives. Until the end of April with each purchase of the detoxifying Himalayan Pink Salt and the muscle soothing Dead Sea Salt 1kg bag you will receive a FREE dry brush and an informative handout on the benefits of dry brushing as well as an info sheet on How To Use Dead Sea Salts.

One of the most powerful spices of all times! Turmeric is a root that has been used for centuries for medicinal properties as a powerful antioxidant and for its ability to reduce inflammation in the body. Curcumin (turmeric) may stop the action of the liver enzyme that activates environmental toxins into carcinogenic forms. Turmeric also increases the production of enzymes that digest fats and sugars and may help cholesterol from forming gallstones. When I attended Sanoviv Medical Institute's Detox Program for healthy eating this drink was a staple every afternoon. Here's the recipe!
2 cups coconut milk
1 tsp organic turmeric powder
1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
1 tsp raw honey
pinch of black pepper to increase absorption
1/8 tsp freshly grated organic ginger root
pinch of organic cayenne
Blend all ingredients in a blender, heat on stove until warm and enjoy before bed to help boost the immune system while you sleep.
So I went to Costco last night to stock up on organics and the coupon for the week is ALL organic products! Costco sure has stepped up consumer demand and is listening to what we want! I still love my Organic Box which arrives today but sometimes you need bulk!
Organic Apple Cider Vinegar was $8.79 for a big jug! Kombucha save $5 so $13.99!!!!
The organic frozen strawberries smell amazing and were on sale $12.99. Wild Organic Blueberries save $4, I think I will make another attempt at gluten free blueberry muffins tonight. Still haven't perfected the gluten free muffin :(
Green smoothies for me today which is a great way to start the day as you are too full to even think about a Chai Tea Latte at Starbucks which used to be my go-to morning drink. Came across this picture of the 7 most alkaline foods and I am so happy I have them all in my fridge! Going home for lunch to whip up some guacamole I think!
