This is something I initially wrote for an online community, for friends/family who are not health nuts, do not study health or have a condition where they need to. Most of my friends have no idea they should be doing any of this so I wrote this to inspire them. It is a general guide of what has helped me in hopes it may help those who are not ready to make all the changes and who have never considered changing what they eat. It is very general for that purpose.

Most of my friends have no idea they should be doing any of this so I wrote this to inspire them. It is a general guide of what has helped me in hopes it may help those who are not ready to make all the changes and who have never considered changing what they eat. It is very general for that purpose. It is meant to be a diving board into the pool of health not a mandate as to what is ideal health. I can tell my friend, 'fish has mercury, don't eat sushi' but they are still going to go eat it. So at the very least maybe they will be motivated to get tested and at least find out their levels. Or maybe they'll check their Vitamin D, etc. This is all purely my opinion. I am not a doctor or a nutritionist. I am just a friend who has had such great success following these guidelines (having not been sick for a year now) that I wanted to pass it along. I have been studying nutrition for 3 years now and this is just what I have learned works for me and maybe it will help you. Do your own research and make up your own minds and be sure to talk to your doctor before making any health changes in your life. 190 of my 570 friends will get cancer. This is based on the most recent statistic that 1 in 3 people will get cancer. 5 of my 570 friends have cancer. 2 are in their 30's and were diagnosed in the last 6 months and all have irreversible kinds they will live with for life. They have all learned to manage their condition mostly through the use of diet but also by using treatments from eastern and western medicine. They have all stopped it in it's tracks (and those are just the ones I know of as there may be more of you I don't know about). I myself have had a pre-cancerous condition that I reversed using the guideline below. 142 of my 570 friends will die from cancer (based on the most recent stats that 1 in 4 people will die from cancer). 142 of you!!! I'm sad to say, one dear old friend has already passed on. The picture below of us baking when we were young. You can read my post: A Tribute to a Childhood Friend. I was motivated to write this guide because I look at that picture and I think, these two little girls have no idea what is ahead of them. If they were my daughters what would I tell them now so they would never have to deal with this? Well this is what I would tell them. Most of my friends will get colds and flus, sinus infections, sore throats, etc. once if not multiple times a year. I used to get them 6-7 times a year and always ended up on antibiotics. So what do we do about all this? A lot!! We can do a lot and I'm going to break it down for you because all these studies are so confusing that nobody knows what to eat or do anymore. You may think you have no control over it. That getting sick is just part of being alive. That colds are normal and people get them. As far as cancer goes it is the norm to believe it happens because of genes (although that does play a role it is by no means a certainty you will get anything) or it's just a bad luck of the draw. Well what you may not know is you are in control especially for the majority of my friends who are in their 30's. This is the time to learn to take the reins to your health. To stop getting sick all the time and to be preventative, while you're cute, fabulous and feel great! And if you've a[...]



how to cultivate joy: a lesson from my dad!

A wish for more joy and happiness!
(image)
A post from my dad's Blog in his words:
Post 356 – I woke up today thinking about happiness and joy and wondering why there’s so little of either in the evening news or the morning paper. And why we've learned to accept that! It’s not that we don’t need more of each - I’m told the number one class at Harvard University is a class called “Happier.”

Dr. Robert Holden writes about three kinds of happiness in his book, Be Happy. He mentions pleasure, satisfaction and unreasonable happiness or joy. For him joy is the soul of happiness and the only true kind of happiness. He compares it to "bliss" and "ecstasy." It’s much more than an emotion or a state of mind; it’s bigger than the ego and comes before the "I." It’s what Marcie Shimoff calls "being happy for no reason" in her book of the same name.

How to stay well while traveling~

I just got back from traveling around Europe for a month. I went to Italy, London and Paris. I was worried about traveling as I wasn't sure I would be able to get enough fresh food and particularly greens to stay alkaline. I ordered a gluten free meal on the plane which was pretty gross. I didn't eat it. It was hard to choose betwen gluten free or vegan because the vegan meal could have gluten and the gluten meal could have dairy. I just brought almonds, larabars, granola and fruit for the flight. I rarely eat on planes. I also bring green tea bags and lemon wedges so all I have to ask for is hot water. So this is what I brought with me - my natural arsenal of germ fighters and alkalizers - it was quite an undertaking to get it all organized:

A tribute to my childhood friend who passed today

2009-10-21T04:30:00.000Z

She had a very rare type, small cell neuroendocrine cancer of the cervix, caused supposedly by HPV-strain 16 that is fast moving and very aggressive.

While she fought hard and tried just about ever therapy known to have any success. Sadly, she did not make it and has passed on to a peaceful place where she will be free of this terrible disease. I have great memories of baking cookies and then watching James Bond movies in her father's office as well as singing our hearts out and re-enacting Madonna videos in her guesthouse. She will be missed and I just wanted to take a moment to honor her. She is survived by her dog Wasabi, her loving husband Harry, her parents and brother. They have set up a non-profit organization in her honor to help women with rare forms of cancer called The Leigh Sakoda Foundation. Please visit her website for more information on how you can give and make a difference.

Getting rid of high risk HPV for the 2nd time!

2009-08-15T21:00:00.000Z

As you know 1 month ago my pap came back saying that the high risk HPV was back, this time with no dysplasia luckily. It was shocking at first. Now one month later it's gone!! My doctors are rather speechless. It was so fast. They say it usually takes about 3 months if it goes away at all . I think the thing that so fascinates me about having had HPV and previously HPV with cervical dysplasia is that it's the very first form of cancer. If you do nothing, you will develop cancer in… As you know 1 month ago my pap came back saying that the high risk HPV was back, this time with no dysplasia luckily. It was shocking at first. Now one month later it's gone!! My doctors are rather speechless. It was so fast. They say it usually takes about 3 months if it goes away at all . I think the thing that so fascinates me about having had HPV and previously HPV with cervical dysplasia is that it's the very first form of cancer. If you do nothing, you will develop cancer in 7-10 years. I had it at such an early stage I was able to just dial the clock back, to press rewind and go, oops, not going there thank you! It is the magic of this precise moment that fascinates me. This is the moment where it can either progress or regress and this is where within lies the answer to getting rid of disease and cancer. What can I learn from this? How can I pass this info on? This is why I have a blog and why I keep pressing forward in my self education or as my friend calls it my autodidacticism. It's like when you break up with someone or something in your life falls apart and you keep going back trying to find that exact moment that it all started to go wrong. Well, imagine being able to find that moment in health and study it. That exact moment you "got" cancer. I found that moment and I intend to study it. There was always that part of me when dealing with this the first time, that wondered if it just went away by chance. Lots of doctors say that: "Sometimes it just goes away on it's own". That lead me to think, do I really need to be doing all this? Maybe it's just coincidence and I could be eating bon bons and drinking martini's. The fact that it came back and has since gone away again just proves that this is ENTIRELY in my control! Do you know who great that is?!! We all know what I did last time which I blogged about in great detail here and if you are dealing with a diagnosis please read this first before posting questions below. The big question is why did it come back? Nobody seems to know the answer to this if I wasn't re-exposed, which I wasn't. It could be hiding in my system somewhere, nobody knows! Not my doctors, not research, not anyone. I have an idea though. Abandonment. I abandoned myself. I got too busy and stopped nurturing myself. I didn't listen to my body. When I was tired I did not rest. When I was hungry I did not give myself good nutrients. I didn't eat badly by any means. It's not like I reverted back to In & Out and donuts. I started eating meek salads with nothing in them, gave up juicing and my green smoothies, stopped a lot of supplements, and stopped exercising. It's easy to do when you're busy. So once I realized this I snapped out of my pathetic state and took charge. Here is what I did. First off, I did what I always do, I researched. You think I would have read everything on the subject last time but surprisingly I hadn't! Three books were hugely influential in my process and I encourage you to read them all as they outline exactly how to reverse HPV, Dysplasia and Cervical Cancer naturally using alternative methods. Full protocols are laid out as well as treatment plans and herbal supplements. So please, do your research as I can not give advice to anyone but I can give you the tools to further your education.[...]



NEVER NEVER GIVE UP..LIKE EVER! Goodbye HPV part 2!

2009-08-12T17:30:00.000Z

(image) After only one month of taking care of my body, adding some new homeopathics, and getting back on the wagon my HPV is gone and everything looks normal. The doctor calls it a miracle, I call it an education! I will be posting on what I did that was a little different from last time, although it wasn't much different.

Also my mercury levels have gone from 40 -16 so I'm getting there. I have about 4 more months of chelation and then I should be good to go!

Also my mercury levels have gone from 40 -16 so I'm getting there. I have about 4 more months of chelation and then I should be good to go!

My hormones have completely balanced. I no longer have estrogen dominance and my progesterone levels have doubled. Thanks to adding DIM and some other things to my diet which I will also be talking about.

Unfortunately my natural killer cells are only at 25, normal can be as high as 150. Mercury and Candida suppress the immune system though so these should go up once they are out of my body. I have some work to do there. Also, candida is back. I'm glad at least that it finally showed up on the test. This is the first time ever in the 10 years I suspected I had it that it showed up. My doctor (I love him don't get me wrong) even went as far as to say last year that it was all in my head and that most people think they have it when they don't. Well all I can say to that is I know my body and now I have the proof. Don't ever give up! EVER!

(image)
I'm also that much more certain that everything is connected. The HPV, the mercury, etc. The mercury apparently eats Candida or the Candida eats mercury something like that.

Anyway, I've been put on Nystatin and I'm back to my strict diet. The chelation will help break their symbiotic relationship and I should be free from everything and a whole new person by the end of the year which is probably the most exciting news I've had in a long long time.

I feel like this journey of healing is almost over and I can get on with the journey of living!

I'll keep you updated. Thank you everyone for all your love and support! It means the world to me!

Keep Calm and Live Sexy!

2009-06-26T15:30:00.000Z

So, I've been away because I got some not so great news. My HPV is back. No dysplasia or cell abnormality thank goodness! I'm not really surprised because I was quite honestly so run down after the move that I just knew something wasn't right. I just knew my body was not getting what it needed and yet didn't know what it needed. I ended up struggling with staying fully raw and then felt confused about what food to eat and not eat. I started eating some things that had wheat and… So, I've been away because I got some not so great news. My HPV is back. No dysplasia or cell abnormality thank goodness! I'm not really surprised because I was quite honestly so run down after the move that I just knew something wasn't right. I just knew my body was not getting what it needed and yet didn't know what it needed. I ended up struggling with staying fully raw and then felt confused about what food to eat and not eat. I started eating some things that had wheat and barley, both of which I'm allergic to. Mostly though I just stopped eating the good stuff. I was eating pathetic salads with nothing in them and not much else of real substance, veggie burgers, etc. I stopped making green shakes in the morning. I just couldn't stomach it. I stopped juicing. It's really no wonder I felt all around terrible. Worst of all I felt like I had nobody to tell me what to do about it. I was so sick of food. My doctor is wonderful and I am so grateful for him yet I was still confused about what to be eating and he couldn't answer that for me. I was doing the acid/alkaline balance he recommends, I was keeping to all the foods, etc. I'd been doing that for 2 years and it was great at first but then I got tired of eating the same thing and when I stopped I felt horrible. I felt as if someone had drained all the blood out of my body. Also the skin on my face got very rough which can only mean the skin on the inside was not doing well because each is a reflection of the other. This would also indicate my gut is out of balance because that is a direct reflection of your face basically. Then I remembered I switched probiotics and was on antibiotics last year. Maybe my gut never rebuilt itself? That would explain why my skin is not supple and why I'm not absorbing anything. So I switched back to ULTRA FLORA IB by Metagenics. But it was all really discouraging. So as I got more and more rundown I ate more things that weren't nourishing my body. I was spent on so many levels. When I got the call that I tested positive again for HPV that was the final straw. I was told it was gone for good!!! Just shows you that even doctors can be wrong. It took me awhile to recover from that blow and I quite honestly didn't want to blog about it because I felt like I failed my audience. Then I remembered why I started this. This is my experience. I am not an expert. I am not an authority on anything but me. This is just a documentation of my life and what is happening to me. I'm sure it is all happening for a reason. Maybe there are people out there who are saying, hey, that's happening to me too and we can all help spread the the knowledge of what we learn about all this. That is my only mission. Well that and knocking this thing back to where it was hiding. I made this poster the day before I found out it was back to inspire myself (which just shows how in tune with my body I am to know something was wrong before I was told which I am really grateful for). Living sexy is inspired from Kris Carr and My Crazy Sexy Life because the green life is the best life and the only way to become your sexiest self. Time to make green juice sexy again! It's in my shop if you need some inspiration (here). This whole ex[...]



The Vitamin D Cancer Connection Explained!

2009-06-01T23:00:00.000Z

Do you know your Vitamin D levels? Vitamin deficiency is becoming an epidemic but the most important of all is Vitamin D. Sunshine is not enough! I will start with where it all starts: with Mom! I am learning more and more how important it is to know your vitamin levels and heavy metal levels before pregnancy (or even after you've had kids) because you pass these levels on to your baby. If you are deficient, your baby is deficient, and when they grow up their baby will be deficient, etc.… Do you know your Vitamin D levels? Vitamin deficiency is becoming an epidemic but the most important of all is Vitamin D. Sunshine is not enough! I will start with where it all starts: with Mom! I am learning more and more how important it is to know your vitamin levels and heavy metal levels before pregnancy (or even after you've had kids) because you pass these levels on to your baby. If you are deficient, your baby is deficient, and when they grow up their baby will be deficient, etc. Here's a very important article from the NY Times on how Vitamin D deficiency can be passed on to your baby and how it may have been passed on by your mom to you. This is a cycle we can all stop with a generation of knowledge. So pass on the knowledge and help stop the cycle! The video at the end of my post is beyond valuable. I hope you will find it as useful and educational as I did. Vitamin D Deficiency has been linked to many diseases and cancers including: Alzheimers, Breast Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Skin Cancer, Autism, Diabetes Here's a great list of facts and details. Doctors everywhere are speaking up on this and feel so passionate about it that they are trying to spread the word. Here's a great video for your quickie education! There's also new evidence that Vitamin D deficiency is linked to cervical/vaginal infections (Read Here). I wouldn't be surprised if it's linked to cervical cancer. I suspected when I began this journey that everything was connected. You can't just give out vaccines and expect the problem to go away (yes I'm talking about Gardasil). What if you didn't need a risky potentially dangerous and sometimes deadly vaccine but all you needed was a supplement of D3?!!! You have to stop and ask, "what is creating this problem?" and not just put a band aid on it. So keep reading and keep learning! Take charge of your own health! This is a huge AHA moment for me as it may possibly explain the "hereditary" aspects of cervical cancer which is probably because of a family history of Vitamin D deficiency. They always say, cervical cancer is not hereditary. Every woman for the past 3 generations in my family has been diagnosed with cervical cancer at the same age! Maybe it's not hereditary on a genetic level but it certainly isn't just due to chance or circumstance as I was told. I just knew in my gut that there had to be a connection. Maybe it's not a gene but maybe it's something else! Something we were eating or doing or something that we all had that was making us predisposed to this cancer. How else does it hit three generations of women in my family at the same age? I'm not a rocket scientist but I was a scientist and I know a pattern when I see one. Well my guess is that the deficiency had been passed on over and over again. Perhaps my great grandmother was deficient, which then was passed to my grandmother (who developed cervical cancer), then it was passed to mom (who developed cervical cancer), and then to me (who luckily caught it early and reversed it). I'm only now realizing the connection of my Vitamin D deficiency to my reversal of cervical dysplasia as it was not prescribed to me as part of therapy for dysplasia but [...]

I'm off to celebrate my 35th birthday. I'm quite excited about it. I actually feel like I've grown younger.

Thank you everyone for being such a sweet inspiration in my life! I know you've all been wondering what that might look like, so here's a pic!

Do you stop and hear the music? Watch this. It's amazing.

2009-02-03T19:00:00.000Z

Here's a story my dad sent me that really sums it all up: (from The Effective Club)… Here's a story my dad sent me that really sums it all up: (from The Effective Club) A Violinist in the Metro "A man sat at a metro station in Washington DC and started to play the violin; it was a cold January morning. He played six Bach pieces for about 45 minutes. During that time, since it was rush hour, it was calculated that thousands of people went through the station, most of them on their way to work. Three minutes went by and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried up to meet his schedule. A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping continued to walk. A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work. The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on. In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition. No one knew this but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth 3.5 million dollars. Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston and the seats averaged $100. Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of an social experiment about perception, taste and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context? One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be: If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?" Here he is in concert: Read the entire Washington Post article called Pearls Before Breakfast, it's really well written and worth the read. [...]

I think last year I was the little seedling under the soil searching for the sun and this year I've broken through the surface and can feel it's rays! I've made a pact with myself that I will live this year for me, the way I want to live it. I have decided to work for myself. No more corporate 9-9 behind the desk watching the world go by and the sun set through my office window, no more only "talking" with family and friends on IM and emails between meetings, no more vowing everyday to get my 10 minutes of sunlight but never finding the time until it's set, no more backaches from sitting in a chair for 10 hours a day, no more scarfing dinner down late at night just before bed only to wake up and do it all again, etc. It will be hard and challenging to live on much much less but feeling the sun on my face everyday when I go for my morning walk, the breeze blowing through my hair and filling my lungs, squishing the sand between my toes, tasting saltwater on my face as waves crash at my feet, spending time with my Mom baking, strolling on the beach with my Dad, eating out and traveling with my brother, taking photographs and selling my work, THIS is what I want more of. As well as finding Mr. Right, cause he sure wasn't in my office (ideas always welcome). I have not left my business completely, I will just be freelance and playing the game on my terms. I still love what I do, I just don't agree with how we are all going about it and what it has become. I refuse to be another mouse on a wheel running round and round waiting for my piece of cheese. I'd rather make my own vegan cheese, thank you very much. When I was little I was fortunate enough to have been raised by my amazing parents who are creative, talented, supportive, and who follow the beat of their own drum. I was always curious about my friends parents who went into an office every day. I would sometimes go with them on "bring your kid to work days" all excited to see what this place called "the office" that I always heard of was really like. My friend and I would have fun playing "executive" filling out forms and answering pretend "very important phone calls" to which I would reply, "I'm sorry, she (me) is in a very important meeting...no I couldn't possibly...it's very very important". It wasn't until I became an executive myself that I realized the problem with what we think is important. What I thought was important in my life. We have become a nation of workaholics. Working and succeeding has become more important than family and personal fulfillment. I'm 34, almost 35, and I don't want to wake up one day at 40, in the same office, looking out the same window, wondering what happened to my life and where my[...]

I'm off to the doctor and eastern/western guru, Dr. Khalsa, today to test my Adrenals, my hormones, my toxic load, my level of metal toxicity and to test again to see if my candida is gone so wish me luck! This will just be another extension of my education.

In the meantime, I love the documentary FOOD MATTERS that I posted the trailer to… I'm off to the doctor and eastern/western guru, Dr. Khalsa, today to test my Adrenals, my hormones, my toxic load, my level of metal toxicity and to test again to see if my candida is gone so wish me luck!

In the meantime, I love the documentary FOOD MATTERS that I posted the trailer to before. Thanks to my dad who reminded me today that the film is now available online and I urge everyone to watch it here.

New York part 2 coming up next!!!



Goodbye cold, hello New York!

2008-07-19T20:21:15.000Z

I'm back!! I was in New York for a week and it was just beautiful! I will have to make this a 2 part post because there is so much I want to write about. Here I am in Sheep's meadow in Central Park. The weather was gorgeous. Let me back up a bit though. Last week I came down with a cold. I came home one night and it came on rather suddenly. My nose started itching and I began sneezing non-stop. You know that kind when you are about to be hit with a wallop of a cold. I remember… I'm back!! I was in New York for a week and it was just beautiful! I will have to make this a 2 part post because there is so much I want to write about. Here I am in Sheep's meadow in Central Park. The weather was gorgeous. Let me back up a bit though. Last week I came down with a cold. I came home one night and it came on rather suddenly. My nose started itching and I began sneezing non-stop. You know that kind when you are about to be hit with a wallop of a cold. I remember reading an article about natural hygiene and that the best way to treat a cold was to drink warm water with lemon juice, go straight to bed and not to eat anything. So that's just what I did. I woke up in the middle of the night and did the same. I also did the same when I awoke in the morning. Always 2 lemons squeezed in warm water. When I woke up I felt fine and I made a green smoothie and went to work. I was all excited I felt better but by the time I got to work I was sneezing again. I was pretty exhausted too. I remember the article I read and posted about before about orange juice with lemon and went straight to Jamba juice and got the largest orange juice they had and squeezed two lemons in it. I drank it all down within a half an hour. I had some big meetings that I had to go to so I had to be at work so I slept on my couch in between them. I was so tired. I drank the rest of my green smoothie for lunch as I really didn't feel like eating much. Then right after my afternoon meeting I went home. For dinner I made my Shamrock Soup with asparagus (which is super alkalizing). I think it had enough garlic to kill a vampire. I had also stopped at the store for some supplements (OptiZinc, Golden-seal, Echinacea, Elderberry, Lemon-balm, Dandelion, Astragalus, Host Defense, Liver Cleanse). I was on a mission. I am 2 months away from my goal of 1 year of wellness (no colds, no flu, no antibiotics, etc.). How could I not make it!! You see normally I knew exactly where this would be headed. For me, a cold turns into a sinus infection which means antibiotics which means yeast infection which means candida which means almost 1 year of anti-candida diet out the window. I also had a super important event in New York and was getting on a plane in 2 days. I couldn't risk a sinus infection and not be able to fly. I could not get sick. I had to be on that plane. I had to make 1 year of wellness. I was thinking and reflecting why I had even come down with something because based on my diet and theory of alkalinity I should not be coming down with anything even if I'm exposed to it. This I realized was due to some dietary laziness on my part. I had been eating a lot of raw food bars that were high in sugar even though it was only from agave and dates it's still bad for me. I had stopped juicing and for the past 2 weeks I really hadn't been eating my greens. I was eating a lot of Chana Marsala (chick pea stew) from Cru and chick peas are very acidic. I knew I was slacking b[...]

I have been checking all my products and trying to make sure that I at least am not using perfumes or products with them but it is hard to understand what is listed and what all the ingredients mean. I have also thrown out all my plastic whether they say it's safe or not and have replaced everything with stainless steal and bamboo. I will continue researching this and I will post what I find. In the meantime watch this:

Happy Monday!

2008-07-08T04:43:32.000Z

Happy Monday everyone! Here are some new photos for my shop from my trip to Santa Cruz this weekend: My friend Sarah made the best salad I've had in a while and I wanted to share the recipe: Sarah's Santa Cruz Salad Shredded red cabbage and normal cabbage, shredded carrots, green onions, bell pepper, cilantro, ginger, diced apples (or you can shred but I like the crunch),… Happy Monday everyone! Here are some new photos for my shop from my trip to Santa Cruz this weekend: My friend Sarah made the best salad I've had in a while and I wanted to share the recipe: Sarah's Santa Cruz Salad Shredded red cabbage and normal cabbage, shredded carrots, green onions, bell pepper, cilantro, ginger, diced apples (or you can shred but I like the crunch), walnuts, and 1 cup buckwheat sobu noodles (cook them and then run cold water through them so they are cold). Put 1 cup of noodles in the bowl and then put the mixed salad on top. For dressing we used Bragg's Sesame Ginger dressing (this has honey in it, so I'm not really supposed to be having it but since I was traveling I just used what was there). Sarah mixed it with Peanut Butter to create a richer dressing. It was delish!! For today's Monday Menu: Breakfast: Rasberries and Armaranth cereal with almond milk Snack: Tea and a green food chia bar (it has 21 g of sugar which is too much but I ate it) Lunch: Stir fried vegetables over brown rice (I was out of salad mixings and in a rush) Snack: I made a green smoothie this morning and brought it with me. Exercise: Horseback riding - coconut water for replenishment Dinner: Cucumber Watercress Soup, Kale Salad Snack: Banana Smoothie I will be posting my findings later this week on Candida and the fat/sugar ratio based on an article I read that was really interesting. Be well![...]

I hope you all have a safe and fun holiday! Here is a recipe for raw vegan ice cream that kids and adults will love:

This is from Recipe Zaar:
2 cups raw cashews, soaked in filtered water for 4 hours (or more)
2 cups young coconut meat (optional but makes it creamier)
1 cup water, as needed
agave nectar to taste
1/4 cup coconut butter or expeller pressed coconut oil(image)
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/2 vanilla bean, seeds of (or double your vanilla extract)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Put in blender then once mixed put the liquid in the refrigerator for 4 hours or more so it can age. This makes for better ice cream.

Then put mixture in ice cream maker. You can use chocolate Almond milk and cocoa to make chocolate ice cream or add fruit of your choice for flavor. Banana is particularly good.

Also if you pour the chocolate ones in popsicle containers and put them in the freezer they taste just like fudge bars.



Another success story!

2008-06-30T22:48:38.000Z

I was having a bummer of a day today when I go the most wonderful email from a reader named Michelle. She reversed her cervical dysplasia and was inspired to do so by reading my blog. I was very touched and honored by her generosity of spirit and gratitude. I had a smile from ear to ear and felt positively ecstatic to hear of her success. It was so needed too. I'm am overjoyed for her and couldn't be happier that she has chosen to share her story and to tell others about her experience.

I'm am overjoyed for her and couldn't be happier that she has chosen to share her story and to tell others about her experience. I look forward to hearing many more success stories. Let's keep the daisy chain growing! Spread the information to all your girlfriends. One person can make a difference! Here is her story: How I reversed CIN 3 Cervical Dysplasia By Michelle (photo: all rights reserved/ Bueller Desgins) Although I wasn’t diagnosed with CIN 3 cervical dysplasia until March of this year, my story begins in August of 2007. My boyfriend, Michael, was going to see the world renowned healer, John of God, in Abadiania, Brazil. Taken from the website, John of God is “arguably the most powerful medium alive today and is possibly the best-known healer of the past 2000 years. It is estimated that he has treated, either directly or indirectly, in the order of 15 million people during the past 40 years. João is a humble man who is very clear about one thing: he is not the healer - God is. “ Michael asked me if I wanted him to take my photo with him to show to John of God. If John of God saw my photo and put an “X” on it, this meant I needed to agree to go to Brazil for healing. So Michael showed my picture and when he told me that it got an “X”, I was a little surprised. Although I had some minor ailments, I didn’t know of anything that warranted a visit to Brazil. But I put it on my list of things to do for the year. In November, I decided I was going to India for the month of December and possibly longer. Before I left, I went ahead and had my annual appointment with the gynecologist. Then I took off to spend time at the Oneness University in India and after being in India for a month, I was guided to return home. Once I touched US soil I was eager to hear my voicemails. However, one of them was from my obgyn saying that my pap came back showing abnormalities in my cervix and I needed to come back in for a colposcopy (a biopsy of the cervix). Well, this had happened to me a couple years ago so I knew it wasn’t too big of a deal because my dysplasia corrected itself, but why was it happening again so soon? Did this mean something? How severe might it be this time? Also upon my return from India, I became ill from various India-related things and I decided to take some additional time off of work. Michael and I planned to take a month-long trip to S. America and at the end of the trip, we would visit John of God. Before I left, in early Febr[...]

A big Oprah toast to Kris Carr!!

2008-06-18T05:45:58.000Z

As you all know by now Kris Carr has transformed my life with her documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer and her online community Crazy Sexy Life. I have gone on to transform my family's lives. They have gone on to transform their friend's lives and the chain continues on and on. It is so exciting what one person can do. How one person can make a difference. I get teary watching this video (could be my hormones but I don't think so). I get teary… As you all know by now Kris Carr has transformed my life with her documentary Crazy Sexy Cancer and her online community Crazy Sexy Life. I have gone on to transform my family's lives. They have gone on to transform their friend's lives and the chain continues on and on. It is so exciting what one person can do. How one person can make a difference. I get teary watching this video (could be my hormones but I don't think so). I get teary because Kris bears it all with such bravery, vulnerability and truth all the while dancing to a song in the living room and being joyous because she has this moment. She asks the tough questions. She breaks down and becomes vulnerable and she rebuilds herself in a whole new way. Above and beyond anything she is not perfect, she is human, and her honesty about that is what makes her such an inspiration to others. I'm so glad her Oprah clip is finally online to share so you can see how amazing my dear friend is. She is an inspiration and I just wanted to take a moment to give her a big green drink cheers for being my angel! Keep the daisy chain going and no matter how little you do just spread the word that health is our choice and we can make a difference by choosing to take control of our diet. Most of all as she says so well, "When there are no answers, you have to find your own!" Be bold. Be daring. Be your own navigator. If Dr. Oz can learn from her, so can you! Be well!

-Buddha

"None of you can ever be proud enough of being the child of such a Father who has not his equal in this world – so great, so good, so faultless. Try, all of you, to follow in his footsteps and don't be discouraged, for to be really in everything like him none of you, I am sure, will ever be. Try, therefore, to be like him in some points, and you will have acquired a great deal"

-Anne Frank

To my dad who showed me the world (literally), who is my compass by always showing me the right path, who always loves and supports me, all of which has allowed me to become a woman I am proud to be, thank you dad! I am a very lucky daughter. The luckiest in the world!!

Happy Father's day everyone!
