|Are you taking yourself too seriously with all this detox, cleansing & raw food business? 'Cause it's time to let loose a bit!!
Life is no fun if you are worried about what you're gonna eat all the time! It's just as important to laugh, relax, be grateful and spend time with the people you love. Being healthy means so much more than how you feel on a physical level. Emotional and spiritual happiness are actually more important for longevity, vitality and bliss!
Keep it in perspective.
That's my lesson to you for March of 2010.
Please contact me to book your Online Iridology Reading while I'm traveling and working around Asia until mid-June 2010.
I love myself,
experiencing each moment as good
and knowing that my future is bright, and joyous and secure,
for I am a beloved child of the universe
and the universe lovingly takes care of me
now and forever more.
The Happiness Factor
Being healthy is fun. Having energy to enjoy life is what it's all about. Yes, being healthy is the best part of being alive!
So what exactly does being healthy mean? I spend a lot of time working with people to get their physical body back into alignment - strengthening organs, detoxing, rebuilding mineral and vitamin reserve and teaching clean and natural living.
But, there is another very important element in the overall health equation, and that is The Happiness Factor.
Everything in life is always about balance. Yes, we need to respect our body as the physical temple to our soul and give it only the best foods from Mother Earth. And we also need to give it the best thoughts too!
What I would like to say to everyone is this: Have some fun on your healing journey!
How you have fun is up to you, but I can tell you that being sober and healthy is actually more enjoyable than the alternative. It's a wonderful feeling to be confident in your natural self, to engage deeply with others on a soul-spirit level, to laugh from the center of your core, and to wake up feeling clear, fresh and alive, ready to start another day!
'Fun' does not always have to be centered around drugs or alcohol. You can have amazing fun playing in nature, going hiking, camping, or skiing, swimming, reading a great book, watching a funny movie or just having a laugh with friends. Think about trying something new for yourself this year - find a way to have fun that is healthy for your body, mind and spirit!
Can you imagine how wonderful it would feel to be happy in your heart and also in your stomach, when you are giving yourself the best thoughts, feelings and foods?
Plan a day for yourself this month, a day just for you, a healthy day on every level of consciousness, where you also do something you have never done before, something challenging, new and fun!! You may get interested in a new hobby for life and make new friends along the way too!

Feature Organ: Kidneys
The kidneys are an important eliminatory organ for overall body health. They regulate the body's fluid volume, mineral composition and acidity levels. By eliminating wastes and adjusting fluid balance, the kidneys play an essential part in maintaining homeostasis in the body.
If your kidneys are stressed or toxic, you may start to experience problems with lower back pain, elevated uric acid levels and even kidney stones. The kidneys can easily get overloaded with debris from unfiltered water, protein overdose (too much meat in the diet), and chemicals from low quality, de-vitalized food. Crystals can then form in urine from the various salts that build up on the inner surfaces of the kidney. Eventually these crystals become large enough to form stones in the kidney. And that can be a painful experience!
Remember that all of your organs are working together at all times, so be aware that a sluggish or toxic colon will automatically put stress on the kidneys and other organs. Anytime you do a cleanse, you are giving all your organs a chance to rest and renew. You may want to also consider doing some additional cleansing specifically for the kidneys.
On a daily basis, drink more water! Water is the main avenue that the kidneys have to flush out acids and toxins, so give it a good supply!
If you experience any lower back pain, discoloration or cloudiness in the urine, or even early symptoms of gout, it is important eat a cleaner diet, staying away from salty, flavored potato chips, excessive meats (especially red meat) and to support the kidneys with parsley tea, juniper berry tea or uva ursi tea.
Once a year, you may want to do a kidney cleanse, especially after having done a colon cleanse. You can buy kidney cleansing supplements in health food stores, already blended into a 2-week supply for your use. During that time, avoid coffee and alcohol. Try to eat supporting foods for the kidneys, especially parsley (see recipe below). Drink plenty of clean, filtered, good quality water.
Send your kidneys love and they will reward you with good health for life!

Napoleon was involved in conversation with a colonel of a Hungarian battalion who had been taken prisoner in Italy. The colonel mentioned he had fought in the army of Maria Theresa.
'You must have a few years under your belt!' explained Napoleon. 'I'm sure I've lived 60 or 70 years,' replied the colonel.
'You mean to say,' Napoleon continued, 'you have not kept track of the years you have lived?'
The colonel promptly replied, 'Sir, I always count my money, my shirts, and my horses - but as for my years, I know nobody wants to steal them, and I shall surely never lose them.'
