I’d like to introduce you to Dr. Maggie Ney, an incredible naturopathic doctor at the Akasha Center for Integrative Medicine in Santa Monica, California and one of the members of Dr. Edison de Mello’s awesome team!
She’s also a super-cool, down-to-earth superwoman juggling career, motherhood and an all-around busy life, just like the rest of us.
Dr. Ney is co-director of the Women’s Clinic at Akasha, and specializes in female hormone balancing and healthy aging.
Through her work at Akasha, she addresses the root causes of symptoms like PMS, menstrual…
Happy New Year, and I hope this year is off to an incredible start for you!
As we celebrate the beginning of the new year and this new decade, I have a couple of quick questions for you:
Did you make your New Year’s Resolutions for 2020? And how are they going so far?
I hope you’re already seeing progress, and things are going well! And if you’re starting to feel a little off track, discouraged, or you’re losing some inspiration, I want to let you know that you’re not alone.
Happy Thanksgiving week!
I’m writing this on the week when we traditionally celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States. Thanksgiving is a day we set aside to give thanks for the year’s harvest blessings, for the people we love and for the abundance of good in our lives. And it’s always celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November.
But gratitude is too important to leave for just one day out of the year!
Let me say I have so very much to be grateful for. My loving marriage to my soul mate of…
With the holidays upon us, now is a great time to plan for a healthy holiday season. And what better way to start than to savor some tasty pumpkin treats as we celebrate Thanksgiving in the United States and the holidays around the world!
With a natural squash-like favor (and a sweetness that’s brought out by roasting them), pumpkins pack a powerful punch, both in taste and nutrition! The potassium in pumpkins can have a positive effect on blood pressure and the antioxidants can prevent degenerative damage to the eyes.
Here are some treats…
It’s my pleasure to introduce you to the world renowned mentor who introduced me to conscious dance – Vinn Arjuna Martí.
When I walked into Arjuna’s studio for the first time, I was about 17 or 18, still in high school, and already an avid dance student. But nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to experience with Arjuna!
The studios where I studied jazz, ballet and modern dance always had everyone looking into a mirror. There was definitely a “right” and “wrong” ways to dance, and a certain body type…
Are you craving more FUN in your life? To get that “skip in your step” and “sway in your hips” if you’re a woman, or for you guys, that “strut in your stuff”?
That feeling you get when you know you’re on your best game?!
Isn’t it WAAAAAY too easy to overwork, under-rest, and get into a “ho-hum” fitness routine that is ALL work and little fun?
I admit I’m a hard worker, and maybe the best “type-A” person out there. However, I’ve also learned that when I give myself a little infusion of…
Happy month of October!
It’s the traditional pumpkin month, and I’d love to share my favorite morning pick-me-up!
After I tried this at a local shop, I checked Google and found this yummy recipe.
Let me know if you try it out!
This pumpkin pie smoothie bowl tastes like a smoothie version of pumpkin pie filling!
Now you might be wondering, “Frozen smoothie bowl?”
I live in Southern California where the weather is still warm, so feel free to change the frozen recipe to warm items…
Let me introduce you to my integrative medical doctor Dr. Edison de Mello, who has changed my life and my health for the better!
This is the man who taught me my BODY is “my firstborn” and how to shift my thinking about self-care and wellness practices.
This is the man who helped me, after I was misdiagnosed by an orthopedic doctor, for 4 years, finally take bold courageous action, advocate for my body, find the solution, and heal my left knee for good! ~ And now I’m stronger than ever!
Do you know how amazing you are? Let me open this post by reminding you of what a strong, capable, brilliant, genius, powerful luminous light being you are.
And how the power breathing you is far more powerful and you contain so much more potential than any circumstance, situation, or condition you are facing. Including wanting to possibly shift your current weight, and feel more confident in your skin and energized in your life.
In my last blog post, I told you about the 12 weight “stress-ers” I’ve found that can…
Are you someone who would like to lose some weight? Or maybe you are like the 20% of my community that either would like to maintain or even gain some?
Most of us have been taught that “calories in, calories out” is what creates weight change. But what if there’s so much more than meets the eye?
What if there are many deeper layers?
In my several decades of research and study in the fields of health, well-being and creating ideal weight, I’ve found 12 “stress-ers” that impacts our weight!
