Is it time for that reset button already?  Well then, you're in luck...because this week is Chinese New Year. 

And it's going to be a year of abundance for you - yes!

January 2011 Healthy Bliss

Feel Your Potential

Taoists use the term pu, meaning 'uncarved wood,;
as a metaphor for simplicity and purity -
for wood
that has not yet been carved
has no set form and
thus has infinite potential. 
Live each moment in a similar spirit,
feeling the infinite potential that
you have within you.

Pure & Perfect
'Stay simple, be natural.
Solid, as the uncarved wood.
Wild but real.'

New Year...Again!  Chinese New Year

2011 is the Year of the Rabbit.  Rabbits are Raw Food it is our year bab-y!
Rabbirs Rule!Chinese New Year is on February 3, 2011.  If you slipped a bit over the last few weeks since January 1, 2011, you have a chance to start again!  Use the Chinese New Year as your 'reset button' and get focused on your goals again.  Remember, choosing your goals is the first step. A New Year is a New Beginning, a chance to visualize yourself in a perfect state of health and be whomever you want to be.  What are you waiting for?  Ok then, let's get going with some healthy living!!

Need a good New Year's Resolution?  Visit my blog for some ideas:

New Year’s Resolution: Daily Meditation Practice
- As you clean the outside of your body with soaps and the inside of your body with healthy, clean food, so you can clean your spirit with a dedicated meditative practice focusing on love, gratitude and goals and intentions.

New Year’s Resolution: Attract Love, Let Go of the Past - Remember, you are what you think! Your thoughts create your reality!

Forecast for the Year Ahead: 'The Chinese Rabbit year favours peaceful solutions and diplomacy, so there will be a feeling that all is not lost and that hope is still very much alive.'


Which is better?

Fasting Once A Year or Every Six Months?  Juice Fasting, Water Fasting or Colon Cleansing?  Breaking a Fast on Fruit or Salad?

Many people wonder what the best type of cleanse is and how often one should cleanse.  It's a difficult question to answer since every person has a different 're-tox' level in between their cleanses.  But, on average, every 6 months is actually considered ideal.  If you don't have the time or resources for that, consider doing a 'mini-cleanse' on the 6-month mark and doing a full 7-day program yearly.  For your 'mini-cleanse,' you can do 3 days of 100% raw food or 5 days of the Master Cleanse or even 7 days of 100% green smoothies.  Anything you do will be better than nothing!

Juice YumA lot of you may have done colon cleansing for your 7-day program, but did you know there are other types of fasting as well?  Juice fasting is when one only takes juices and usually no supplements or detox drinks of any kind.  In this fast, there can be daily enemas or not - it depends on the type of cleanse.  People can juice fast, or 'Juice Feast' for anywhere from 40 to 60 days.  Remember, your body is still getting all the nutrients it needs from the juices!

Water fasting is much more intensive and involves only ingesting water with no supplements, juice or detox drinks.  Usually with water fasting, it is not recommended to do a daily enema and the main focus during the fast should be to rest as much as possible.  This type of fasting is extremely effective at cleaning the tissues and cells very quickly.  People can safely fast on only water for up to 40 days.  But, this type of fasting is not to be taken lightly.  Going into and coming out of a water fast needs to be done very carefully.  If you have never done this before, I advise you to do a guided program.  I personally have done up to 10 days of only water and I can tell you that it is an amazing experience.

Green LoveSo, when breaking a fast, what is the best meal? Well, there are many different opinions out there.  For a water fast, the breaking of the fast is much more strict, but for juice or colon cleansing, you have a few options.  I usually suggest breaking a fast on fresh fruit with high-water content, such as watermelon or papaya.  You can also break a fast with a green smoothie.  Because the smoothie is already blended, it is actually a great transtion from liquids (juices) to solids (food). Some people break their cleanse with a green salad and I would say this is also ok, but be sure to chew your food very slowly and avoid nuts and high fats, such as avocado, in the first few days after the cleanse.

Featured Video: Hidden Sources of MSG on Food Labels
  • In this video, Jennifer shows you how even so-called healthy and even organic foods can have hidden sources of MSG in them. MSG, or monosodium glutamate, is a flavor enhancer that adds a salty, savory flavor to foods.  In Europe and Australia, they call these additive 'E numbers' and MSG is E621.   If you have an intolerance to MSG, you can experience migraine headaches and insomnia.

    Some countries will list it as 621.  But, did you know that food manufacturers can also legally 'hide' MSG in other ingredients, such as 'yeast extract,' 'pea protein,' 'soy extract,' 'Vegetable Protein Extract,' 'Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein (HVP),' 'Autolyzed Yeast,' 'spices' and even 'natural flavorings'?  If not, you need to see this video.  Jennifer even finds MSG in a organic non-GMO chicken stock.  Knowing the trickery in food labels can help you increase the quality of food you are buying instantaneously.

Simplify & Appreciate

ZenNo snowflake ever falls in the wrong place.

The quieter you become,
the more you are able to hear.

Sitting peacefully doing nothing
Spring comes.

We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

Store News
Finally, I have the long-awaited Heavy Metal Detox Kits and Liquid Minerals available for sale at!

Heavy Metal Detox
A Heavy Metal Detox should be done at some point on your healing journey.  You can do all the raw food eating and colon cleansing you want, but that will not take heavy metals out of the tissue.  I highly recommend this for anyone who has already done a few fasts already to avoid any damage to the central nervous system.  If you are experiencing any unusual numbness, bleeding of the gums, dizziness, fatigue or metalic taste in your mouth, you could very easily have heavy metal accumulation.  This cleanse is meant to be done while eating.

Minerals are absolutely essential for your system's healthy and are the foundation for creating a healthy body and clear mind.  Liquid minerals are much more easily absorbed than capsules.  Low mineralization levels can cause fatigue and lead to a wide range of health problems.  A Daily Green Smoothie is a great way to boost your mineral levels.
