I love sharing information with clients and peers, but please don't listen to a word I say. Instead, if something resonates with you? Then happily check it out, first, to see if it's right for you.
The ability to generate joy for yourself and others is life-changing and healing on so many levels, and sensitives do not thrive without joy. Find out how easy it is to shift your world in an instant toward being joyful wherever you are in life or in the world. It may take courage in some locations, but you may find the effort more than worth it. Note: Joy and happiness are not the same thing, and Ingrid Fetell Lee will tell you why.
Sensitive does not mean weak.
Life affects sensitive people very deeply.
When life affects you deeply, either strength is born or illness prevails, sometimes both.
Nurture your strengths for a happier and healthier life.
An Open Letter to Everyone Who Has Ever Called Me Too Sensitive.
Highly sensitive people (HSPs), the gifted, autistics, and other neurodiverse and wonderful brains like those with ADD or ADHD are needed in this world, yet are more susceptible to environmental and emotional toxicity, increasing the likelihood of suffering from allergies, CFS, fibromyalgia, complex PTSD, etc. Few understand why life is so difficult. Until we, the people, clean up the planet and open our hearts, life can be less difficult with the varying perspectives found in the Sensitive category of this blog.
"Normalizing" treatments are wonderful, because whatever is out of balance will begin to return to balance. For example: The Old World manual therapy treatment called Gua sha has been shown to lower liver enzymes that are too high, and raise liver enzymes that are too low. This is normalization, and it is worth seeking out normalizing foods, activities, and treatments, especially if you have inexplicable chronic conditions. Tok sen is proving to be another, highly effective normalizing treatment, and both gentle Gua sha and Tok sen are used in my practice. Get ready for the big leap: Intermittent Fasting (IF) and Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) lifestyle diets are very likely normalizing digestive and endocrine function. Here's a lovely, true story (one of untold many) of how being thin doesn't mean healthy and how IF and LCHF can help improve digestive health and turn infertility around: The Faces of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
My apologies ... while I was having some fun writing a purposely tongue-in-cheek post about something real and important regarding fat in our diet and the body's desperate need for more than we are giving it ... upon review, it was a terribly written piece! I'll be back later with a proper version, minus the attempt at humor that I clearly failed at, likely from too many episodes of The Americans :D. 'Til soon.
I’ve lost 50 pounds with this method, which is the first time in over 20 years my weight has gone down instead of up. And, I didn’t change my diet, because it was already clean and, during the largest of the largess years, quite minimal. So, my diet was not the reason for the weight gain. Others have figured out the trick, too, but between fear and overcomplicating, most end up avoiding the very thing that could potentially save them. So, let's un-complicate it, shall we?
A multi-purpose home remedy ingredient I purposely ignored due to my gut’s life-long inability to tolerate it, has turned out to be a remedy I potentially needed most: Vinegar. Specifically, apple cider vinegar or ACV. It is one of three main ingredients in a recipe I hope you will join me in trying. Alone, (but still diluted) ACV is already known to be a digestive helper, immune supporter, and weight loss tool, but combined with two other antimicrobial ingredients, it packs a powerful punch for arthritic relief, too.
I just convinced myself not to write an article to help save the dying brick and mortar business. Why? Because all things that have outlived themselves should die. I certainly don't want to live past my usefulness date. And, because most problems take care of themselves if you have patience - something I'm catching onto late in life.
And the problem is taking care of itself but could use a little of your help ...
Solutions to everyday stress involve identifying where we are emotionally unhappy and then taking action to correct or curb the circumstances involved, and that means finding out what’s at the root of a given problem, before seeking solutions. I love this kind of problem-solving and happily share for those seeking similar unique yet ubiquitous solutions. Consequently, the topics here may vary within health, lifestyle, and work/business.
