UnHealthly Mindset: 3 Ways We keep Ourselves Sick

 

You know that healthy habits make sense, but did you ever stop to think why you practice them?

I’ve heard women, in particular, say this a lot lately. They say, “Why can’t I look like that ?!”, ” I will never look like that!”

Why do we mentally sabotage ourselves?  Let’s get something clear. You are unique. You are not meant to be me  & I am not meant to be you. We are on this planet as individuals, each of us has a unique finger print that can’t and wont ever be duplicated with any other human being. Ever! So why do you mentally sabotage your mindset with self doubt and in return it starts a domino affect on  your health? You are telling  your subconscious  with out even realizing it that you are not made for greater things. You are telling your subconscious that you can not be sexy, be brilliant and be fantastic.  Be happy in your skin.

Everywhere you look — on every billboard, on every social media channel — it seems that there are beautiful, scantily clad women. So it is pushed down our throats that beauty starts from the outside but actually its starts on the inside and radiates outward.

Here’s the thing: if you treat your body like it’s your worst enemy – or not take ownership of your physical wellbeing – you ​are repelling good health.

 You’re keeping yourself from being the best you can be in your life , because you dislike your body so much.​

You’re basically saying, “I dislike good health. I want to be rid of it.”

Well, wish granted!

Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle

You’re meant to make a difference in this world ; that’s why you’re here. 

 But you must believe you’re meant for greater things, so you can actually enter a place of mental  stability, and eventually, a place of fantastic health.

 Don’t take yourself out of the game by ignoring your bad relationship with your health.

 

Here are three common ways that We keep Ourselves Sick. Luckily, you can fix them.

 

1. Improve your relationship your health

When you decide to improve  your relationship with your health, be prepared for people to question and criticize you. Change can be a very difficult thing for many  of us to handle. 

 You have the mindset,  to step out on faith to get the perfect health that you really wish to have. It could be from grabbing that apple instead of those chips  , walking 10 minutes per day, or reading a self help book.

Take Action: ​Let yourself out of that unhealthy , fast-food, over processed and artificially filled food habit because it’s ruining your life.

 The only way to create a different outcome is to allow yourself to forgive what’s happened in the past. ​The past does not have to be ​your future.

 You are 100% capable of changing your future health story​, so do it.

2. You never step outside your box.

“I can’t afford eat better.”

“I don’t want to spend the money on a new diet book.”

“I wish, someone would just give me the magic pill for my ideal body!”

“I don’t want to purchase another program that isn’t going to work.”

Does any of this sound familiar? The more you focus on what you don’t have, the less likely it is that you’ll ever have it.

T​ake Action: ​Focus on what you do have​ right now. ​Express gratitude for literally being alive. Now, you have to create a strategy to have what you really want. Set a goal, writing down realistic goals  and make yourself a  deadline. Take steps to get there. (And don’t quit if it doesn’t work the very first try.)

Or… you can keep focusing on what you lack. Call me in a year and tell me how that’s working out for you.

 

3. You think health is something your granted with, rather than invest.

You want your health to work for you, so you have to think of everything you eat as an investment. 

Will eating that cheeseburger build or create that healthy body? Probably not.

Will investing in self-improvement books or a mentorship program? Perhaps, if you do the work and commit to changing old habits.

​

Take Action: ​When you’re about to improve your health, think carefully about why you’re about to modify your life with . If that  item, service or experience is worth it. Then ask yourself:

  • Will it feel like a good investment in 90 days, 6 months, or even a year?
  • Will it help you create a healthier you?
  • Will it help create a happier you?
  • Will this change bring you immense joy and memories that will last forever?
  • Will you grow as a result?

 

Investing in your health will have a high return, personally and professionally. Don’t go foolishly looking for cheap thrills and expect to be in  better state of health this time next year.

 Believe that you’re worthy of investing in yourself and believe you’ll have a return.

 

 

Cultivating a healthy mindset

You don’t have to repel health. Instead, build your relationship with it.

Investing in myself by joining a group program for a healthier lifestyle is the best thing I ever did for myself. 

Committing to my personal growth, speaking with people who has been there and done it, and finding the support of like-minded people was crucial to my success and confidence. I’ve created a group on Facebook called Got Hypothyroidism? Where  you have a “safe place” to share progress and chat with one another.

It’s time for you to change your health story and start becoming a healthier you!

 You can change the game. You can see get a healthier you and change your unhealthy past to make a better future in your life. 

Make the decision that it will happen for you, and ​work on your healthy  mindset.

Take Action: ​​Create a food journal. Write down everything you eat. Think about what you eat and if it benefits your body. I’m talking old school pen and paper. ​

Break those chains where you can become a healthier you. Once you see what you eat , you can quickly​ start to know the area’s in  your food journal that you need to make a change.

Yes, it can be frightening. It takes a lot of courage to face your unhealthy habits in such detail.

​ But now you can create a health plan to cut unhealthy habits and bring in the health you desire.

 

Be strong, stay positive

My loss is your Gain

There are THREE big reasons why people decide to say “Pass” when it comes to new cook books or new self help  programs…

1.”I don’t want to waste my money”

2.”I don’t have the time”

3.”I don’t know how to get started”

 

Which one (or all 3?) best describes your current situation?

 

I’m going to be honest with you…

 

I felt like I’ve seen & heard it all before too

 

I had VERY picky with what I spend my hard earned money on.

 

So, why did I think you should purchase this book?

 

Because you need to realize that you have to invest in your health. You are worth investing money into yourself and take charge of your health. Will it “hurt” a little? Ha, you bet, but it will change your life.

 

I wish somebody had given me a step-by-step roadmap back when I was first diagnosed with hypothyroidism..

 

And that’s exactly what you will get once you start investing in  your future.

Bone Broth. The new green Juice?

There’s a new trend of  hot beverage filling mugs across America and experts are already singing its health praises. So what is this magical elixir? Bone broth. This magical elixir  has been considered a great healer in many cultures and in South America.

Here are 8 reasons  why you should try drinking bone broth.

1. Heal and seal your gut. According to Jill Grunewald, a holistic nutrition coach and founder of Healthful Elements, a cup a day works miracles for leaky gut syndrome but it’s also good for protecting non-leaky guts. The gelatin in the bone broth (found in the knuckles, feet, and other joints) helps seal up holes in intestines. This helps cure chronic diarrhea, constipation, and even some food intolerances.

2. Protect your joints. Taking glucosamine supplements to help with joint pain has been common knowledge for years, but it turns out that bone broth has glucosamine too. But unlike pills, the broth also includes a host of other goodies that help keep your joints happy, healthy, and pain-free. The chondroitin sulfate in bone broth has been shown to help prevent osteoarthritis.

3. Look younger. Bone broth is a rich source of collagen. You can find collagen in all kinds of “plumping” products these days, but why stick it on the outside when you can drink it? Not only is drinking it cheaper, but it can make your skin, hair, and nails look just as radiant.

4. Sleep better, and feel better. The glycine in bone broth has been shown in several studies to help people sleep better and improve memory.

5. Immune support. Mark Sisson, author of The Primal Blueprint, actually calls bone broth a “superfood” thanks to the high concentration of minerals. He says that the bone marrow can help strengthen your immune system. (Something that won’t surprise your grandma who always made you her famous chicken soup when you got sick!) A Harvard study even showed that some people with auto-immune disorders experienced a relief of symptoms when drinking bone broth, with some achieving a complete remission.

6. Stronger bones. The phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium in the bones seeps out into the broth leaving you with the essential building blocks for healthy bones.

7. More energy. I’m not sure what the mechanism is for this, but if you read accounts of bone broth, you’ll notice everyone swears by the energy boost. I’d prefer to see science backing this up, but the research on bone broth is still emerging.

8. It’s very economical! What else were you going to do with those chicken carcasses, soup bones, and veggies going bad in your fridge?

Chicken and Beef Broth

(Adapted from A Good Food Day, by Marco Canora)

Ingredients:

( You don’t have to use both sets of bones you can use one or the other)

  • 4 lbs. chicken bones (any combination of backs, necks, and feet)
  • 2 lbs. beef bones (shin or neck)
  • 2 small onions, peeled and quartered

  • Drain and pack bones in pot.
  • Cover with 4 inches of cold water and cook over medium-high heat for about 45 minutes until liquid boils.
  • Reduce heat to medium and move pot so burner is off to one side. (This helps broth to circulate.)

  • When broth looks clear, add remaining ingredients and simmer for an additional 2 hours.
  • Use a spider skimmer to remove and discard bits of meat.
  • Put a fine-mesh strainer over another large pot and pour broth through it; discard solids.
  • Drink immediately, or let cool before storing. Makes 2 1/2 quarts.
Slow Cooker Simple Bone Broth

Got Hypothyroidism? Now What.

Your not crazy and  it’s not all in your head. Which I love to hear that one- said no one ever!  There is nothing scarier than not knowing why you suffer from different health related issues. You know  your body, you listen to your body and you can tell when something just isn’t right. There are so many potential answers as to why you can be lacking energy, can’t sleep, can’t lose weight, low sex drive, aches and pains in your joints, poor hair and nail quality, premature graying or balding, constipation or hard stools, feelings of sadness, anxiety and even heart palpitations. For the sake of this blog , let’s just say you’ve been recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism. You have no other health issues and your stumped on what to do next. All the things that I have listed you could be experiencing one or more. Everyone is different. I’ve experienced everyone of these symptoms except poor quality nails, except balding and expect sadness throughout my diagnoses . Now, my anxiety is a totally different story and  I’ve always had a high forehead which has nothing to do with any balding issues.  You have to be able to laugh at yourself and enjoy life.

You cannot compare yourself with anyone else. Remember you are not perfect. I have to always tell myself this. I am committed to something bigger than myself and I want to add value, inspire and connect with all of you that are struggling with hypothyroidism. Thank you for allowing me into your  life by sharing what I have learned over the years.

Here are a few things to jump start your hypothyroidism health!

 

1. Adopt a Healthful Diet, Avoid Gluten

Your  thyroid is depending on your to start feeding it and start maintaining your overall health. So stick with whole, natural, and organic foods. Steer clear of processed foods and eat gluten free. Gluten can have undesirable effects on the thyroid. If you must have bread then check out all my gluten free recipes in my book. A Survivors cookbook guide to kicking Hypothyroidisms booty.( Available this Spring)  At the bottom of the page I will include a few gluten free recipes. Meanwhile, you can check out my slow cooker E book.

2. Avoid Soy

Soy products have hormone disrupting effects. Soy is also high in isoflavones (or goitrogens), which can damage your thyroid gland.  Products containing soy protein appear in nearly every aisle of the supermarket. That’s because soy doesn’t just mean tofu. Traditional soyfoods also include soymilk, soynuts and edamame (green soybeans), just to name a few. Food companies also develop new food products containing soy protein from veggie burgers to fortified pastas and cereals. READ your labels. Dont worry you still can eat fried brown rice but replace it with  Coconut amino’s instead.

3. Iodine

Iodine is a very popular hypothyroidism natural treatment source and many  natural health experts do recommend a good source of iodine. While nascent iodine is most often recommended, Lugol’s brand is a fine alternative. Dr. Group’s iodine supplement, is also a viable option. Vitamins C and E, D3, selenium and zinc, and omega-3s should be supplemented with your choice of iodine as well.

Some food sources of iodine include:

  • Seaweed and sea vegetables
  • Some yogurts (organic yogurt, Greek)
  • Cranberries
  • Strawberries
  • Dairy products
  • Dulse flakes

Keep in mind that many hypothyroidism cases are actually caused by Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. It was found in some research that increasing iodine intake could actually cause your thyroid issues to worsen if you have Hashimoto’s. Instead, reducing iodine intake may be the solution.

4. Eat More Antioxidant-Rich Foods

Antioxidants are also important in keeping your thyroid healthy. But rather than getting them from traditional multivitamins, that simply exit the body just as easily as they entered, obtain them from natural food sources. Load up on vitamin C from dark green vegetables and citrus fruits, Omega 3 fats from walnuts and flax seeds, and zinc from pumpkin seeds.

5. Reduce Exposure to the Chemical PFOA (Found in Non-Stick Cookware)

Finally, reduce your exposure to PFOA, found in common household products including nonstick cookware and waterproof fabrics. Researchers have found that people with higher levels of PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid) have a higher incidence of thyroid disease. Start cooking with cast iron skillets or stainless steel cookware.

 

6. Coconut Oil

Raw , Virgin Coconut oil has been used as just one hypothyroidism natural treatment.  Coconut oil is made up of medium chain fatty acids known as medium chain triglicerides (MCTs), which help with metabolism and weight loss, coconut oil can also raid basal body temperatures – all good news for people suffering from low thyroid function.

 

7. Natural Hormone Balancing

One approach to fixing thyroid issues and hypothyroidism is the use of hormone therapy. You really need to meet with an holistic expert. There are many great holistic and naturopath doctors.  Most often, synthetic hormones like Synthroid, Levoxyl, or Levothroid are used, which contain only the T4 hormone and no T3 – two hormones produced by the thyroid gland.  Thyroid conditions can be serious. You should always seek a professional who knows how to help you.

8. Foods that you should start incorporating in your everyday eating.

Figuring out how much you need to eat for you own unique body will require time and experimentation.  Eat slowly and mindfully until you are 80% full. You want to feel satisfied but not stuffed. If  you exercise more, you need more calorie intake. You can easily start with a  salad and add more veggies, healthy, fats and proteins to any meal.  You need to make sure your getting enough nutrients per day. Try your best to not eat 3 hours prior to bedtime and after your last meal allow a 10 hour window before you eat again.

9. Beneficial bacteria supports your immune system

For most people, taking a quality probiotic supplement doesn’t have any side effects other than higher energy and better digestive health. As a society we have drastically cut back on our consumption of vegetables and of beneficial essential fatty acids ( flax, pumpkin, black current seed oil, dark green leafy vegetables, hemp, chia seeds, fish)  such as those found in certain fish (including salmon, mackerel, and herring) and flaxseed. We are consumed with little fiber and an excess of sugar, salt, and processed foods. Stress, changes in the diet, contaminated food, chlorinated water, and numerous other factors can also alter the bacterial flora in the intestinal tract.When you treat the whole person instead of just treating a disease or symptom, an imbalance in the intestinal tract stands out like an elephant in the room.  So to play it safe, I recommend taking a probiotic supplement every.

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy. Probiotics foods include yogurt,  kefir, Kimchi, Sour Pickles ( brined in water and sea salt instead of vinegar) Pickle juice is rich in electrolytes, and has been shown to help relieve exercise-induced muscle cramps., Kombucha, kombucha tea ,Fermented meat, fish, and eggs.

Brewing Kombucha at Home: Step by Step Instructions for Producing a Perfect Batch

Prebiotics foods are brown rice, oatmeal, flax, chia, asparagus, Raw Jerusalem artichokes, leeks, artichokes, garlic, carrots, peas, beans, onions, chicory, jicama, tomatoes, frozen bananas, cherries, apples, pears, oranges, strawberries, cranberries, kiwi, and berries are good sources. Nuts are also a prebiotic source.

The ideal pH for the colon is very slightly acidic, in the 6.7–6.9 range. When there is an imbalance or lack of beneficial bacteria in the colon, the pH is typically more alkaline, around 7.5 or higher. The optimal pH range for gas-producing organisms is slightly alkaline at 7.2–7.3.

When someone starts taking a probiotic or a prebiotic supplement (or eats a prebiotic food), the beneficial microorganisms begin to increase in number. These good bacteria start to ferment more soluble fiber into beneficial products like butyric acid, acetic acid, lactic acid, and propionic acid. These acids provide energy, improve mineral, vitamin, and fat absorption, and help prevent inflammation and cancer. The extra acid also starts to lower the pH in the colon.

10.  Goitrogenic foods which if eaten in excess can affect your thyroid in a negatively

They are commonly known as Goitrogenic foods, which means they contain substances which can prevent your thyroid from getting its necessary amount of iodine.  If eaten in excess, they interfere with the healthy function of your thyroid gland, tilting you in the direction of being even more hypothyroid, or making you susceptible to having a goiter, or enlargement of your thyroid. If you look closely at the word itself, you can see the root word is goiter (goitro-gen).

Bok choy
broccoli
brussels sprouts
cabbage
cauliflower
garden kress
kale
kohlrabi
mustard
mustard greens
radishes
rutabagas
soy
soy milk
soybean oil
soy lecithin
soy anything
tempeh
tofu
turnips

Also included in the goitrogen category, even if mildly, are:

bamboo shoots
millet
peaches
peanuts
pears

radishes
spinach
strawberries

Two weeks of Hypothyroidism Breakfasts

Hello, darlings!

Hope your having a wonderful February so far.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Breakfast” literally means the meal that “breaks the fast”. You’ve been sleeping all night fasting. Your body needs to be rebooted. You’ve got to “jump-start” that metabolism. Eating a healthy breakfast has been medically proven to have many health benefits, including weight control , reducing the risk of obesity , it certainly will boost your fiber intake to help you reach your daily goal of 20 to 35 grams (for adults). Eating breakfast has been shown to improve performance, have heart health advantages, helps you avoid fluctuating glucose levels, which can lead to diabetes later in life, helps you consume less calories throughout the day, so you’re not binge eating of starvation at lunch time. It will give you that mental edge by enhancing your memory, your clarity, and the speed in which you are processing information, your reasoning skills, your creativity and how you absorb information. Scientists at the University of Milan in Italy reviewed 15 studies and found some evidence that those benefits. One theory suggested that if you eat a healthy breakfast it can reduce hunger throughout the day, and help you make better food choices at other meals. You should eat no later than 2 hours of waking up. Also, if you skip breakfast your hunger hormones are boosted and it can also throw your body into survival mode. Which in return starts breaking down protein in your muscles and your muscles will slowly start to break down.   Now, I hope you see the importance of why eating a healthy breakfast is so important.  I am always thinking of my friends!

Here are Two weeks of amazingly simple and delicious Hypothyroidism Breakfasts!

I decided to write a brand new, FREE e-book: Two Weeks of Hypothyroidism Breakfasts.



ps. Spread the wellness by sharing this BLOG with a friend who you think would be healthier and happier by trying two weeks of hypothyroidism breakfasts. Sharing is caring!

The Best-kept Secret in Skin Care Revealed!

People often say that ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder,’ and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing that you are the beholder. The fountain of youth hasn’t been discovered and I don’t know about you but I have to work hard  to reverse aging process.  Something’s are unavoidable unless you have a cosmetic surgeon at your finger tips. I only wish that I started this journey sooner.  Your body needs the right nutrients to fight off damage, and your skin is no different. Nutrients help the cells replicate and have more energy. Processed foods, stress, toxins and low-nutrient diets will accelerate aging. We must protect ourselves from harmful chemicals while trying to get enough sleep, relaxation and exercise.

You can have a healthier, more youthful looking skin but you have to put some work into it. Your diet and what you put on your skin has everything to do with your skin. Does that make sense?

Have you ever heard the term , “Rode hard and put up wet”! That happens when you are not taking care of yourself. Your body will eventually start to break down if you are not taking care of it. It’s like a car engine. If you don’t maintain it properly and treat is with care it will not last you long.

You must nurture your skin. Just like you try to eat healthy and avoid all those over-processed chemicals in our standard American diet. Why not do the same for your skin? If you are not already eating healthy here are some natural strategies to start your way to  more youthful-looking skin.

Natural Strategies for Healthier-Looking Skin…

  1. Avoid eating grain carbohydrates, especially wheat – Bread, cereal, pasta, rice, potatoes, and corn can cause surges in insulin production. Instead, eat vegetable carbs because your body can typically digest them more easily.
  2. Consider a gluten-free diet – Particularly if you suffer from gluten intolerance, a gluten-free diet can potentially help you avoid toxins being pushed through your skin due to the intolerance.
  3. Eliminate/Reduce sugar in your diet – Like grains, sugar (particularly refined sugar) causes an insulin spike which can lead to less-than-desirable skin.
  4. Establish the proper balance of gut bacteria – Eating fermented foods and/or taking a high-quality probiotic supplement can promote a healthy balance of gut flora and support your immune system.
  5. Drink plenty of fresh pure water – Hydrating your body facilitates cell growth and regeneration, elimination of wastes, and helps remove dead skin cells. Hydration can enhance your skin tone as well.
  6. Eliminate ALL sodas, juice, and energy drinks – These drinks are often loaded with sugar, artificial flavoring, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners and artificial colors (dyes). As far as juices, eat the fruit in moderation instead.
  7. Eat for your Nutritional Type (NT) – Knowing your NT will help you determine the ideal amount of carbohydrates you should be eating and help you fine-tune each meal to just what’s right for you.
  8. Optimize your vitamin D levels – Vitamin D is crucial for establishing a healthy immune system and to help promote healthy-looking skin.
  9. Get enough vitamin C. –A diet rich in vitamin C leads to fewer wrinkles. Researchers have found that skin exposed to vitamin C for long periods of time can produce up to eight times more collagen!
  10. Reduce your stress – Research suggests that changes in skin often correlate with increased stress.
  11. Exercise regularly – Getting plenty of high-intensity exercise helps your body flush out toxins, including those in the pores of your skin. The more you sweat, the more you flush unwanted contaminants out of your pores.
  12. Get a good night’s rest – Your body’s time for rejuvenating is at night while you sleep. And this applies to your skin as well, as it can help promote a cleaner, clearer complexion.
  13. Naturally cleanse and moisturize your skin – Avoid toxic skin care products with risky chemical ingredients. They can cause more skin problems than they solve.
  14. Have a rainbow-colored plate of food – Free radicals form in our bodies and cause major damage to our cell structures. The different nutrient-rich foods we eat neutralize them. You need to consume the widest variety of antioxidants you can to fight off the different kinds of free radicals.
  15. Eat healthy fats – Add foods such as avocados, olive oil, flax seeds, nuts and fish into your diet is important. The fatty acids are crucial for your skin to look youthful.
  16. Lemon water Cleanse –  We build up of toxins daily from our surroundings. The air, water and food can cause damage to the body as well as aging. Freshly squeezed lemon water is a way that our body can start eliminating toxins. Drink a glass of warm water with squeezed lemon first thing in the mornings.
  17. Use non-toxic cleaning products– It is very important that we limit exposure to toxic chemicals because the skin absorbs them.
  18. Eat foods with antioxidants – Antioxidants are the best resources your body has to fight disease and aging by reducing damage and inflammation. Inflammation is a leading cause of wrinkle formation. Some of the best sources of antioxidants include:
    • Blueberries
    • Pomegranates
    • Acai berries
    • Goji berries
    • Spinach
    • Raspberries
    • Nuts
    • Seeds
    • Purple grapes
    • Dark chocolate (70% or higher of cocoa content)
    • Organic green tea

     

  19. Opt for natural skin products – Many skincare products contain harsh chemicals. When choosing moisturizers or makeup, research the ingredients in them the best you can to confirm that they’re safe.
  20. Grape see extract Studies have shown that grape-seed oil is even more potent than vitamin E and vitamin C in the quest for anti-aging.

Here are some of my favorite natural skincare recipes to help you switch from conventional products to a more natural way.

Natural Make-Up Remover

I use olive oil or coconut oil to remove mascara (even waterproof) and it  will remove other make-up as well but fi you have oily skin you should use liquid castile soap . Just mix it with water , apply is gently to your face and it will remove makeup without adding oils to the skin or stripping the natural ones.

Lotions and Moisturizers

I use coconut oil. That is all that I need to moisturize face. It is naturally full of collagen supporting lauric acid and is easily absorbed by the skin. Even for oily and acne prone skin, coconut oil’s natural anti-bacterial properties make it a great option.

Natural Exfoliators

A sugar/oil scrub is great for most skin types when extra exfoliation is needed. Just mix equal parts oil (coconut, olive, etc.) and sugar (white or brown) and use as a whole body exfoliator. For more oily skin, plain baking soda can be used to exfoliate skin and remove blackheads or dirt.

Avocado-Honey Moisturizer

A moisturizer is an anti-aging must. By helping your skin retain moisture and acting as a temporary filler for wrinkles, it makes your complexion look smooth.  Ingredients: 3 tablespoons of fresh cream 1/4 avocado 1 tablespoon honey Directions: Place all three ingredients in a blender and puree into a smooth cream. Apply it to your skin and leave on for at least an hour. Rinse off with warm water.

Wrinkle-Fighting Salad

This energy-boosting fruit salad is packed with antioxidants, which protect the skin from sun damage and boost circulation to help deliver essential nutrients to skin. Eat it for breakfast to start your day on a beautiful note. Ingredients: 1/2 cup fresh blueberries 1/2 cup fresh strawberries 1 kiwi, peeled and chopped 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds 1/2 cup organic orange juice 1 handful of chopped walnuts Directions: Combine first four ingredients in a small bowl. Pour the orange juice over the mixture and sprinkle with the walnuts.

Acne Spot Treatment

When you have a blemish that needs to disappear—stat—try this nifty trick. The yeast fights bacteria, the lemon helps dry the blemish. Ingredients: Brewer’s Yeast A squeeze of lemon juice Water Directions: Make a paste using a little bit of brewer’s yeast, a squeeze of lemon juice, and a bit of water. Apply right on your blemish and leave for 10 minutes, cover with a bandage.

Basil Toner

This recipe is great for those prone to acne. The basil acts as an antiseptic, helps clear acne-causing bacteria, and improves circulation to the skin. Ingredients: 3 tablespoons dried basil leaves 1 cup boiling water Directions: Crush up the dried basil leaves and mix them into a cup of boiling water. Once the mixture cools, strain out the leaves, put it in a spray bottle and spritz your skin. Use a cotton ball or pad to spread the toner gently around your face. Do this daily before cleansing.

Almond-Sugar Facial Scrub

Regularly exfoliating your face helps get rid of dead skin cells (which dull your complexion) so your skin looks smoother and brighter. Ingredients: 3 tablespoons of fresh cream 1 cup of white sugar 1/2 cup of brown sugar 1/2 cup of ground almonds 2 tablespoons olive oil Directions: Mix all ingredients well. Apply to dry face in a circular motion Wash your face off with warm water, followed by cold water. Pat your face dry. Place in a jar and store in your refrigerator for future use.

Coconut Deep Conditioner

Keep your hair smooth, hydrated, and shiny with this natural conditioning treatment; apply it once a week. Ingredients: 1/2 cup mayonnaise 1 tablespoon coconut oil 1 teaspoon coconut extract Directions: Mix ingredients together, apply and cover your scalp with a plastic wrap (like Saran Wrap). Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes, then rinse hair thoroughly.

Tighten skin

Egg Whites help to tighten skin, giving your face a healthy glow while diminishing the look of fine lines. Egg whites also help to remove dead skin cells and draw excess oil from the pores while tightening them.

Remove dead skin from your face

Baking soda is excellent in removing dead skin form your face. Ingredients: 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 1 tablespoon of water.  Directions: Mix ingredients together, apply to your skin with a cotton ball in a rotating movement. Then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Home Remedies to help with vaginal odor

12 Weird Things Women Do to Their Vaginas

 

Having a vagina is like having to carry around a high maintenance model who is very temperamental. You always are worried about what materials you put on her. What styles look best and she always has to have the best clothing. You have to be careful with cutting her hair. You have to be sure to take her to the doctor each year for a check up. You can’t just shove things in her, but sometimes you have no choice.  I’ve spent years inspecting my vagina from every possible angle and she still leaves me guessing, “Okay, what’s next?”   Have you ever taken a look at your own “personal space” A lot of women never do, and that’s so strange to me. So far, I’ve mastered  to predict my menstrual cycle to a reasonable degree of accuracy. It still baffles me that I am  supposed to go about my day and do all of your things without being distracted by the sensation of liquid leaving your body and that the fact that I am shedding the entire lining of my uterus . Men really have no clue what we women go through unless they are a OBGYN doctor.  I’m still trying to figure everything else out.  Also, the fact it’s so elastic. It stretches to accommodate squeezing out a baby, and yet in most cases, it has no trouble contracting back to its original size.  Our vaginas are very talented in the sense that she is very musical . She likes to queef and I can’t get her to stop. No reason to be alarmed  queefing is  only air trapped in the vagina but during yoga, sex or just walking around can be a bit much. Clearly I can’t be the only person left on this planet that feels a little perplexed by her attitude to be in complete control all the time.  On a more serious note. let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. The truth is The vagina comes in all shapes and sizes. 

Vagina’s are naturally wet, for the most part. That’s just part of the our ordeal. Normal vaginal discharge is a self-cleaning method. (No reason to be alarmed there)  Another question.  Why is it so taboo to call a vagina, a vagina? Why do people have to pick different nick names instead of calling it what it is for instance personal space ,snatch, vajayjay, coochie, lucy, cootie-cat, hoo-ha, lady parts, beaver, punani, love taco , twat and I could go on and on with a ton of more nick names.

It all starts with puberty. The moment we see that 1st hair. We are so excited and why?! We have no clue of the things ahead of us.  We start to become very smelly from head to toe. It is  normal and healthy for you to have some vaginal odor. However, strong vaginal odor can be the result of douching, excessive washing, wearing clothes that are too tight and certain chemicals in your soaps, bacterial growth, yeast infections, poor hygiene, hormonal changes, and  or sexually transmitted diseases. This strong odor can become embarrassing.

If you have symptoms like redness, itching, burning and irritation in the vaginal area that can be a  problem is due to infection. For example, a fishy odor can be caused by bacterial vaginosis. Your OBGYN can perform tests to see what is the underlying problem of your odor.  Even if, you OBGYN gives her a clean bill of health  but yet you still are experiencing  vaginal odor which is very embarrassing. Don’t be alarmed, there are many natural remedies to help treat the odor.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

(brought to you by Top Ten Home remedies)

Due to its antibacterial and antiseptic properties, apple cider vinegar can be used to fight vaginal odor. In fact, taking a bath with apple cider vinegar is one of the simplest ways to get rid of the bad odor. This will help fight off the toxins and bacteria that cause vaginal odor. It will also help restore the acidic quality of the vaginal flora.

  • Mix two cups of apple cider vinegar in warm bath water. Soak in it for about 20 minutes. Follow this remedy several times a week to get quick results.
  • You can also drink a glass of water mixed with one or two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar daily.

2. Baking Soda

Baking soda is another ingredient that can be used to balance the pH level in your body. When the pH level is in balance, the problem of vaginal odor will dissipate.

  1. Add one-half cup of baking soda to your bathwater.
  2. Soak your lower body in it for about 20 minutes.
  3. Dry yourself thoroughly with a clean towel. This remedy will help fight a yeast infection and can help get rid of odor quickly.

3. Yogurt

Another good ingredient that can be used to treat vaginal odor is yogurt. Yogurt is rich in lactobacillus bacteria, which help fight candida infection (one of the most common causes of vaginal odor) and restore the normal vaginal pH level. Once the pH level is balanced, the vaginal odor will be gone.

  • Eat two cups of unsweetened, plain yogurt daily. You can also take probiotic supplements.
  • Another option is to soak a all natural tampon in plain yogurt and insert it into your body. Leave it in for a few hours, and rinse the area thoroughly after removing the tampon.
  • Another option is to freeze yogurt in a long ice cube where you can insert it in your vagina and allow it to melt.

4. White Vinegar

White vinegar has the power to neutralize odors by breaking down odor proteins. A white vinegar rinse will help eliminate vaginal odor. It will also help restore pH levels in the vagina.

  1. Mix one-half cup each of white vinegar and salt in lukewarm bath water.
  2. Soak in it for a few minutes.
  3. Follow this remedy several times a week.

5. Garlic

Garlic is a natural antibiotic that can be great for dealing with vaginal infections as well as vaginal odor. The antifungal properties present in garlic will help fight a yeast infection and help your body get rid of bad bacteria.

  • Eat garlic in raw or cooked form on a daily basis. You can eat one or two raw garlic cloves on an empty stomach with a glass of warm water. You can also add garlic cloves or its paste to your dishes and salads.
  • Another option is to put a piece of garlic in the vagina for an hour or two. Do this daily or a few times a week until you get rid of the problem.

Additional Tips

  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day to flush out toxins and harmful bacteria from the body. It will also help ward off a variety of health issues.
  • Avoid refined carbohydrates, caffeine and sugary drinks; sugar stimulates yeast production.
  • Check for possible signs of infection that could be causing this problem.
  • Maintain proper personal hygiene.
  • Wear 100 percent cotton panties that allow air circulation and help keep the vulva ventilated, thus avoiding excessive perspiration.
  • Change pads, tampons, and panty-liners frequently.
  • Avoid using scented products down there as they may contribute to unbalanced vaginal pH.
  • If the problem mostly occurs after intercourse then simply wash the vagina with mild soap and water after sex.
  • Practice safe sex.
  • At times, women simply do not like the normal vaginal odor caused by vaginal secretions. However, there is nothing bad about it, you just need to respect your body and embrace your natural odor.

 

Weird things women do their Vagina

Written by ECOSALON

1. You can steam it
Yep, vaginal steaming is a thing. You apparently pick out herbs – you know, like you do for asparagus – that help to detox and heal any vaginal imbalances. But how exactly do you know if you’re walking around with an imbalanced vagina?

2. You can knit with it
This is not a drill.

3. You can keep it cool
There’s underwear that works as central air for your vag to keep it from overheating – the technology apparently reduces your down-there temperature by three degrees. Not sure, but your boyfriend’s peen might have to wear a light jacket the next time you fool around.

4. You can buy it a hat
The Vaj-J Visor is a little hat that protects your vagina while shaving, waxing or tanning. It comes in a wide variety of colors – because if your visor clashed with your razor, that would be weird.

5. You can dye it
This might be taking the whole carpet-and-drapes thing with a Fun Betty kit.

6. You can whiten it
According to women who clearly spend too much time studying their vaginas, it’s better for your vagina to be as pale as a creepy china doll: Vaginal whitening is all the rage in places like Thailand and India, where you essentially bleach your lady bits and make them look so pale they practically glow in the dark.

7. You can keep it minty fresh
I wish I was joking, but unfortunately vaginal mints do exist (otherwise known as a yeast infection waiting to happen).

8. You can give it injections
Fillers aren’t just for your face anymore: Women are injecting collagen into their cooch to inflate their g-spot, making it super sensitive to sexual stimulation. You know what else inflates your g-spot? A guy who knows what he’s doing.

9. You can give it a makeover
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation runs for between $4,000 and $20,000 and aims to make a woman’s vagina tighter than a vice-grip – you know, to make up for years of promiscuity and super-size vibrators. There’s also a more budget friendly option: “Wanna Be Tight” Vaginal Shrink Gel. I wanna be drunk.

10. You can decorate it
Like the college guy hanging out at a high school party, vajazzling is still around – especially useful if your guy is distracted by shiny things.

11. You can remodel it
If you’re looking for a new pair of drapes, a labiaplasty will give your otherwise floppy, uneven vaginal opening a more proportioned, feminine look… for $5,000 or more.

12. You can give it a facial
Vajacials (vagina facials) are a 50-minute beauty “essential” where your nether regions are plucked, cleansed, moisturized and covered in a fruit-flavored mask. Because in order to have good sex, you have to smell like a scented candle.

13. If you think Your Vagina is Too Loose
Laser Vaginal Rejuvenation is a trademarked phrase that refers to a practice developed and popularized by Dr. David Matlock, who’s made several appearances on the E! channel’s plastic surgery reality show, Dr.90210. Matlock and other doctors who carry out LVR claim that the $4,000 to $20,000 procedure makes women’s vaginas tighter, thus increasing sexual pleasure.

But many doctors disagree. The American Urogynocology Society won’t endorse it. And the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists cautioned in a 2007 statement that women seeking “designer vaginas” should be “informed about the lack of data supporting the efficacy of these procedures and their potential complications, including infection, altered sensation, dyspareunia, adhesions, and scarring.” Sexy!

14. If you think  Your Vagina is Ugly
Labiaplasty drastically reduces the labia, the protruding lips that surround the opening of the vagina. Why would you want to do this? Because your labia are  “unequal,” “elongated,” “large,” “irregular,” “floppy,” and “unfeminine.” These are just some of the unflattering adjectives bandied about on the Web sites of surgeons who offer this procedure. Luckily, with the use of lasers and scalpels, your vagina can be made “prettier,” “better proportioned,” “youthful,” and achieve “the true Playboy aesthetic look.” How much will it cost you to make your labia proportional and feminine? About $5,000 or more.
