Energy Boosting Smoothie

smoothie, energy,

Smooth­ies are a great way to take nutri­tious food on the go with you or to round out a busy day with food that gives you quick energy.

Here is one of my new favorites.  The fla­vors go great together while the chia seeds add whole food pro­tein and the maca pow­der acts like a pick-me up with­out any caf­feine.  Fills me up and keeps me going.

5 Reasons Energy Medicine is Perfect for Treating Autoimmune Disorders

Brown Lotus

My inter­est in autoim­mune dis­or­ders started years ago when I was watch­ing a talk show with guest Annette Funi­cello.  At the time she had been deal­ing with the effects of Mul­ti­ple Scle­ro­sis (MS) for over 10 years.  She was des­per­ate for a solu­tion to end her strug­gle.  At the end of the inter­view she was off to sky-dive because she had heard it could help to cure MS.

I remem­ber think­ing it was an odd treat­ment and not under­stand­ing how it could cure this ter­ri­ble dis­ease.  Since then, in my jour­ney to learn about alter­na­tive heal­ing modal­i­ties, I often looked for causes and solu­tions for autoim­mune dis­or­ders that had begun to affect peo­ple I know and love.

Autoim­mune dis­or­ders are becom­ing more preva­lent in our cul­ture with each year.  They are debil­i­tat­ing, affect every­one and the med­ical sys­tem has no cure.  Not only don’t they have a cure but they are

Quinoa, Kale, Salad

Quinoa-Kale Salad is one of my favorite foods to keep on hand.  It makes any greens that are sea­son­ally avail­able taste great.   A fill­ing snack with com­plete pro­tein to sus­tain you for hours.  Quinoa-Kale Salad can be served warm or cold and tastes even bet­ter the next day.

 

Print Quinoa-Kale Salad

Ingre­di­ents

2 cups Water 1 cup Quinoa*, rinsed 2 table­spoons Olive Oil 1 medium Onion, chopped 1 cloves Gar­lic, minced 2 bunches Dark Green Leafy Veg­eta­bles**, chopped 1 can Chick­peas, drained and rinsed 1/2 cup Lemon Juice 1/4 cup Olive Oil 1/2 tea­spoon Salt 1/2 tea­spoon Dill, dried or 1 tablespoon fresh

Instruc­tions

Com­bine water and quinoa and bring to a boil. Cook for 15–20 min­utes, until all the water has been absorbed. In a large sauté pan heat olive oil and sauté onion and minced gar­lic cloves until translu­cent. Add chopped dark green leafy veg­etable and cook until wilted. Com­bine the cooked quinoa, greens, chick­peas, lemon juice, olive oil, sea salt and dill until thor­oughly incor­po­rated.
Serve warm or cold. Makes great leftovers.

*Quinoa is a super grain that can be found in any nat­ural food store. It adds a nice nutty fla­vor to meals where you would nor­mally serve rice. Quinoa is a com­plete pro­tein and a great source of sev­eral B vit­a­mins, mak­ing it a sub­sti­tute for peo­ple want­ing to reduce car­bo­hy­drates in their diet. When prepar­ing quinoa be sure to rinse the quinoa with water and a fine mesh colan­der until the water runs clear. This removes a bit­ter dust that clings to the quinoa.
**Dark Green Leafy Veg­eta­bles — Kale, Col­lards, Esca­role, Swiss Chard, Spinach or any­thing you have on hand.

Fermented Foods and Fatigue

fermented foods

Intesti­nal health in autoim­mune dis­or­ders such as Chronic Fatigue Syn­drome and Fibromyal­gia go hand in hand.  Often before diag­no­sis of the autoim­mune dis­ease, diges­tive issues begin to crop up and cause havoc.  One of the most pow­er­ful tools we have for heal­ing and strength­en­ing the func­tions of the intestines are fer­mented foods.

Ben­e­fits of Fer­mented Foods Pro­mote growth of health bac­te­ria in the intestines. Aids and improves diges­tion and elim­i­na­tion. Enhances absorp­tion and assim­i­la­tion of nutri­ents. The active cul­tures have stim­u­lat­ing effects on cel­lu­lar immu­nity. Boasts anti-cancer and antibi­otic prop­er­ties. Reg­u­lates com­mu­ni­ca­tion between the immune sys­tem, ner­vous sys­tem and brain. Help con­trol inflam­ma­tion through­out the body. Increase anti­bod­ies. Detox­ify heavy met­als from the body. Syn­the­size vit­a­min K and impor­tant B vit­a­mins. Improves mood and alle­vi­ates symp­toms of depres­sion and anx­i­ety. Digestion

The most pop­u­lar under­stand­ing of the role of fer­mented foods is the ben­e­fit to proper diges­tion and elim­i­na­tion. Pro­bi­otics in fer­mented foods

A Strong Woman

energy, lotus

A strong woman works out every­day to keep her body in shape… but a woman of strength kneels in prayer to keep her soul in shape.

A strong woman isn’t afraid of any­thing… but a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear.

A strong woman won’t let any­one get the best of her… but a woman of strength fives the best of her to everyone.

A strong woman makes mis­takes and avoids the same in the future… but a woman of strength real­izes life’s mis­takes can also be God’s bless­ings and cap­i­tal­izes on them.

A strong woman wears the look of con­fi­dence on her face… but a woman of strength wears her grace.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the jour­ney… but a woman of strength has faith that it is in the jour­ney that she will become strong.

Is Water Affecting Your Chronic Fatigue?

In Eden Energy Med­i­cine, we look closely at the ele­ments and how they affect our energy.  Water is the ele­ment of Win­ter and gov­erns merid­ian energy of the Blad­der and the Kidney.

Win­ter is a time of intro­spec­tion, con­tem­pla­tion and plan­ning.  It is the sea­son when we con­sider who we want to be in the com­ing year.  Have you ever been set against mak­ing any New Year’s res­o­lu­tion, only to find your­self sud­denly want­ing to make a change as the hol­i­day arrives?  This is the intrin­sic power of water.  It calls us to observe our sit­u­a­tion and find a way to get into the flow of who we are.  We sud­denly want to let go of things that no longer serve us. It is the time of beginnings.

The Flow of Water

When our water ele­ment is strong we feel con­nected and clear on who we are and what we need.

Energize — A New Beginning

Energize 2014, New Year

We often think of Spring as being the begin­ning of new things.  In truth, growth and new changes begin dur­ing the cold hiber­na­tion of Win­ter.  As we hud­dle close to home, endeav­or­ing to keep warm, our energy is pulled inward and focused on what makes us feel good.  Win­ter is the time of prepa­ra­tion, con­tem­pla­tion and planning.

With that in mind, I have cho­sen to start anew this year and focus my work on energy.  If you have been a long-time sub­scriber you will begin to see some new con­tent, energy and focus going into 2014.

My stud­ies of Donna Eden’s Energy Med­i­cine are com­ing to the end of the first year. I am so excited to be incor­po­rat­ing this valu­able work into my prac­tice.  All pain, fatigue, ill­ness, dis­ease, or chronic and acute issues with the body begin as imbal­ances in the energy field.  When we bring those energies
