When you’re grocery shopping, stick to
the store’s perimeter. This is
where you find fresh produce, dairy products, and meats – and you
won’t be tempted by those shelves of packaged snacks and heavily
processed foods lurking in the middle aisles. From: Organic Style January 2003

Fasting is a way to cleanse and rejuvenate the body. Fasting allows your digestive system to
rest and more energy can then be used to help the body eliminate built up
toxins. Toxins build up in the body as
a result of a fast-paced life; one that includes over-eating, poor food
choices, environmental pollution and stress.
Fasting can also be used as a way to transition a healthier eating
plan and more mindful eating habits.
fasting has been shown to be beneficial in healing from many diseases. Some
of the diseases that can be helped by fasting include skin disorders,
digestive problems, asthma, Halitosis (bad breath) and many others.
benefits gained by fasting include mental clarity and overall awareness as
well as more energy. Weight loss is
sometimes an added benefit of fasting but should not be the sole purpose of a
fast as you will likely gain back most of the loss once “regular”
eating has been resumed. Fasting
should not be used as a “cure all” – meaning an excuse to
eat an unhealthy diet because you are going to fast in the future. This seesaw affect is VERY hard on your
fasting (as opposed to water fasting) provides nutrients – vitamins,
mineral and calories. Therefore the
body is not starving but rather allowing the digestive system to rest.
is the spice of life as well as an important ingredient in a juice fast. Creating a variety of juice combinations
assists in the process as does adding various spices and/or herbs to the
important to take time for self care while on a fast. This should include
relaxing activities such as yoga, massage or other spa treatments. Colonics
during the fast can increase the amount of intestinal residue eliminated.
(or eliminating if possible) caffeine, sugar and other processed for a few
days before fasting will allow for an easier transition. Transitioning slowly back to eating solid
food is also important to allow your body to adjust. This should be done with fruit, steamed
vegetables, broth and salad if you wish – all with no dressing or any
other processed products.
a regular fasting schedule, such as once a quarter or one-day a month helps
keep build up under control and makes each fast less stressful. Now is a great time for a juice fast as warmer
weather months are easier on the system than colder weather months.
can be greatly beneficial when done under the correct supervision and for the
correct motivation. If you are
contemplating a fast and would like supervision, please feel free to contact
Maintaining Focus During Summer– schedules tend to go a
little crazy during the summer. Many barbeques,
weekend getaways, picnics, vacations and on and on. As such, we all tend to lose focus on
eating during this time. . Join this NO CHARGE tele-class to learn how YOU can maintain some semblance
of order around eating this summer.
This class is held via telephone and will be held Tuesday. June 20 at 6 PM (EST).

a Change – Get to Balance
Are your health concerns impeding
you from living life fully? Do you want to change your relationship with food
from the inside out? Are you seeking deep seeded balance and wellness?
eagerly welcome the opportunity to work with you on a personal level. We can work together privately to create a
customized life-long plan for you AND create the steps to incorporate those
changes into your existing routines.
counseling services I help people create and maintain balance in their life
by using nutrition as a focus and a tool. To do this I look at the
entire lifestyle of an individual to achieve maximum health. This is
accomplished through education and private consultations where an
individualized program is developed for each client. These consultations
include evaluating the client’s current diet and overall lifestyle and
then making easily implemented, gradual changes. Additionally, they
receive outside information in the form of articles, books, tapes and
recipes. Also included are additional monthly forms of education and
participation -- activities like cooking coaching, health food store shopping
hints, light exercising functions and other activities. My practice is
telephone based, allowing for maximum flexibility and ease.
