Have you compromised on your dream?

Have you compromised on your dream?

February 13, 2019

Have you compromised on something you thought at one point you could do, and when things started becoming tough you gave up on it? I did. A few times in my life I thought I could do more, and then all the challenges popped up, and i thought “this is too hard”… and decided it wasn’t worth it. My excuse was that “I was good where I was.” “I was happy with what I had.” And they seemed to be all good reasons. What I failed to see was that the dreams were given to me to pursue a bigger goal, to be able to do bigger things, and be able to impact more lives. It wasn’t gonna be as difficult, I just didn’t want to see and consider all the possibilities. I only saw what I saw and knew what i knew. After meeting amazing business coaches and the #1 wealth creator JT Foxx, and listening to their experiences and advice, my eyes opened up to things I couldn’t see before and processes and solutions I didn’t even consider earlier. So, next time you think a dream you have (or even one you have held on for a...

Chew Your Food For Better Health

Chew Your Food For Better Health

February 11, 2019

Chewing is a crucial part of the digestion process. After your start “salivating”, as you start thinking of food, your body creates the digestive enzymes to breakdown food. Then when you actually eat, chewing is the next process and the one that will help your body breakdown your food effectively. You see chewing chops, cuts, grinds, and macerates food, before it goes into the esophagus and the other smooth muscles cells involved in the digestion process. The chewing process is part of what is called the mechanical phase of digestion. Without the proper breakdown of the food in this phase, it becomes more difficult for the rest of the system to digest this food effectively. After all teeth are only in the mouth and not in our gut. When the food goes through the stoma and the intestines, it is churned and mixed thoroughly with the digestive enzymes. Food that goes through this process that isn’t broken down well by the teeth, tend to cause bloating, because undigested food, encourages bacteria overgrowth in the small intestine. This accumulation of bacteria can cause gas build-up, as well as diarrhea and/or constipation. So, next time you put food in your mouth,...

What are your Health Goals for 2019?

What are your Health Goals for 2019?

February 8, 2019

Creating health goals can be daunting, if not confusing. Not knowing where and how to start, makes it almost impossible to create one. Well, let me put your mind at ease and help you with this. When you write your goals, think of what EXACTLY you want to achieve – a 20kg weight loss; to get rid of your hay fever completely; to have 8-hours uninterrupted sleep every night; to always have normal blood sugar readings; to have a blood pressure reading of 120/80 always; to start a Paleo eating plan and gain muscle mass… Whatever it is, the first step is to be clear what EXACTLY it is you want to achieve. Only when you are clear will you be able to research the steps and make your goals a reality. Once you have written all your goals, number them according to priority. Ideally, do not have more than 3 health goals at a time. Allow yourself the biggest chance to fulfill all your goals, by giving yourself the opportunity to really get into them and do them. Remember that we have other things we need to work on aside from health. Creating too many health goals, give...

My family has a crazy eye fetish!

My family has a crazy eye fetish!

February 6, 2019

Yesterday I was going through my photo gallery and came across a series of eye photos my children had taken. It can be quite daunting to see eyes staring back at you on your photo gallery, but it is something I have gotten used to through the years. You see I am an Iridologist, and have been practicing Iridology for over 10 years now. I have always found it fascinating to read people’s characteristics, strengths, and weaknesses through their eyes. It is quite a fascinating field, and I find it amazing to practice the art of Iridology. Looking into a pregnant woman’s eyes, writing down the gender of the baby, even before the doctor tells her what it is, is quite exciting. Finding out a person’s genetic weakness when they can’t figure out the cause of a recurring illness is quite revealing, and a relief on their part. My son, when he was much younger, told his teacher to see me coz she showed an inflammatory constitution. My son had been fascinated by my iris photo collection and had heard me do my Iridology courses online, and clearly picked up a few things from what I taught. I don’t...

Prioritizing health = lasting lifestyle changes

Prioritizing health = lasting lifestyle changes

February 3, 2019

Every time a new year comes around, people promise all sorts of things that they will change. Better health, a change of diet, and weight loss are some of them. However to truly have an effective promise, there has to be a commitment to make changes. After all, change cannot happen if you do the same things you have always done. Doing the same things, will always give you the same results. To truly prioritize your health for 2019, the first step is to look inside your fridge, pantry, and cupboards. Go through the foods you have in there. Select the foods that do not align with your goal. Pick it up and get rid of it. Don’t say….”well i still have a lot of bread, let me finish those and start next week.” Change only happens, when you decide to do it now and take action. A better way of doing it, is offering your “rejects” to others. Others might have different goals. So what is ones “junk” is another man’s “treat”. Another way to put it is, find someone who will rescue you and help you get closer to your goals by accepting your junk foods 🙂...

Omelet – the most versatile healthy meal!

Omelet – the most versatile healthy meal!

February 1, 2019

Did you know that the Omelet is one of the most versatile healthy meals you can prepare for you and your loved ones? Omelets are made from eggs, which is one of the most nutritious food you can have. It contains vitamins A, B2, B4, B5, B6, B12, D, E, and K. It also contains Folate, Phosphorous, Selenium, and the antioxidants Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Eggs is also a good source of protein, amino acids, and good cholesterol. So if you haven’t yet incorporated eggs in your diet, you are missing out on all these nutrients. An omelet also allows you to add to the mix of already great nutrients, even more nutrients through tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, onions, and whatever else you like to add. I have had versions with meat, chicken, or fish, depending on the diet of the person I am preparing it for. Cheese is another great addition for those who are able to tolerate it in their diet. Omelet is a great meal for any time of the day, except close to bed time, as the high protein in eggs can make it difficult for people to have a good night’s sleep. But either than that,...
