Over the past few years I’ve been dealt some devastating blows to my health all while helping others find their own wellness utopia.  I have also witnessed many miracles, including my own, that I wholeheartedly believe stemmed from a deep knowing that such a thing was even possible.  Hippocrates, the Father of Modern Medicine (allegedly) said “Natural forces within us are the healers of disease.”  If that is true then it’s possible, theoreti...

I have to admit when I first thought of the title for this article I didn’t know if people would get my symbolism.  Then I read an article that compared the spiritual meaning of constipation with other dysfunctions of the body.  As I thought about the relationship between physical constipation and the need to control or be in control (one of the spiritual attributes of the condition), I also thought about the real causes of constipation both...

In all my years as an Esthetician and now as an Esthetic Nutritionist and Esteem Coach, I have worked with a range of clients- some who had great confidence and self-assuredness and others whose confidence was lower than a basement floor tile.  Unhealthy self-esteem is closely linked to an unhealthy addiction to perfectionism born out of an inherent need to be better than… 

In my experience, this breeds more insecurity which further dec...

 If I asked you what makes you happy, would you really know?  You might think you’d know.  Maybe you would give some arbitrary answer like money, love, music, friends, without any thought to what these things really provide.  So think for a moment, if we paired money and a terminal illness, would you be happy?  Could you be happy?  What about marriage and betrayal or job security and a dream deferred?  I think for a lot o...

Ordinary, average, unexceptional, uninspired, middle-of-the-road, lukewarm, unremarkable, forgettable- is this you or someone you know?  No matter how you describe it, mediocrity really is a heavy burden- one that many of us have carried at some point or another in our lives.  What’s so bad about being mediocre?  For one thing, it can debilitate, keeping us complacently stuck in the same spot (usually a rut) never realizing our full creative...

During one of our sessions, my friend and wellness coach Kelly, asked if I had ever re-balanced myself after I gave birth to my eldest daughter nearly 16 years ago.  I never re-balanced, I just adjusted.  I had learned to master my life, living with things I hated because it was just easier to do.  Years later I wondered how I got here.  You know here.  It’s where time moves slow but not in a good way.  In here we feel stuck a...

Imagine what this life could be if we all (consistently) did what we enjoy. Then we would all be happy. Perhaps. What if we had proof that what we hope for will actually happen? Then we’ll be happy. Maybe.

Happiness is so much more than a single event or acquiring possessions. It’s ethereal. We can’t touch it but we feel it deeply and unmistakably in our souls. At one point or another we have all said “I want to be happy”, “I’ll be happy when...

If you could start over where would you begin?  The life you have is the one you created.  The life you want is the one you should live.  If it doesn’t exist, create it now.  It’s up to you.  Challenge yourself to move beyond what is familiar.  Give yourself permission to do something different.  Remember, brilliance is not perfection, it's a better you.  Eight weeks to wellness.  Eight weeks to a more brilliant you.  How will you design you...

Do you ever consider what you would do for free? Are you doing “it” now? What are you truly passionate about? I am referring to the kind of passion that literally makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning and hit the ground running! In marketing, we use a marketing audit to helpcreate a realistic profile of the business and the goals we hope to achieve. BelowI’ll take those same principles, with a little tweaking, and apply them to yo...

Losing weight is as simple as burning more calories than you consume or eating fewer calories than you burn.  Then why do so many people struggle with losing it?  Because, there is an art (and science) to losing weight.  It’s highly personal and a unique approach is required for everyone.  That’s why so many fad diets don’t work long-term for the masses.  Low carb, no carb, fat-free, high protein…there are some people who do well with these...
