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 cause your…
Did you know statistically people are spending most of their waking hours staring at their screens?
I know you’ve already heard the scientific research that too much screen time stresses our eyes, our necks, spines and brain. Too much screen time also makes it easier to feel disconnected from nature, and even with our true authentic selves.
I know, I can already hear you saying:
“But I have to stare at a screen for work, it’s how I make my money.”
I get it, and yes I agree this is…
OK, so let’s dive right in here!
What is this “natural fountain of youth?”
It’s called nitric oxide!
You might be asking, “What is it, why is it important, and why should I care?”
Nitric oxide is a powerful molecule that resets your power grid and reboots your body the same way you reboot your computer in order to make it work better. Nitric oxide is like a refresh button for our body and soul!
Nitric oxide is also crucial to maintaining optimal health because it causes muscles in the…

The picture below is of my 40th birthday with my favorite women.
Included are my mom, daughter, mother-in-love, adopted mom, adopted aunt, my BFF, and some amazing friends all who I adore.

With all of the demands put on us these days through work, family, life and social obligations, it’s easy to put ourselves on the back burner.
But in doing so, we end up exhausted, stressed and overwhelmed.
True self-love is the foundation of a happy and fulfilled life, and an essential key to giving love AND receiving love from someone else.
When you take time to nourish yourself, you’ll be able to put your best self forward in your personal and professional life.
Here are 5 power questions you can…
As part of a NEW expert interview series, I will be releasing next month I interviewed two world class doctors from the Akasha Integrative Medical Clinic in Santa Monica, CA.
During these amazing, content packed interviews, I asked them to name their top 3 personal health practices that support them to be their most vibrant, healthy self. They both said they practice intermittent fasting.
This got me curious.
I remember my parents practicing fasting when I was growing up for spiritual reasons.
I have explored different health cleanses and methods.…
There is an old mentality about exercise that’s reflected in common sayings you’ve probably heard or spoken yourself, like: “No pain, no gain.” or “Whip yourself into shape.”
It’s the idea that exercise is something you have to do, or that it’s even a form of punishment for overeating.
But what if exercising and moving your body could be easy and fun, and it didn’t even require a ton of your time?
The truth about movement is that movement is life.

As we move through 2019, check in with yourself by considering the physical spaces around you. Are you feeling disorganized, cluttered, or cramped?
One way to know for sure if the state of a physical space is serving you or not is to ask yourself, “If my [insert name of someone you care about] could see this space, would they think it was organized and clean?”
Trying to see the space through another person’s eyes can help reveal if you may have some work to do with organizing and tidying things up 🙂
How are your New Year’s resolutions going?
Even if you’ve been struggling with them, February is a great time to take on a “new year, new you” approach to your daily habits and rituals.
And one of the best ways to do this is to swap out old habits that no longer serve you with some new habits that make a BIG impact over time!
Think about it…. how many times have you set a New Year’s resolution and started off really strong with it, but within a few weeks you abandoned your goal?…
