Transformed to Thrive — Nurturing Your Heart — B.E.L.I.E.V.E.

Living well is a response. A response to life that is natural, easy and perfect for YOU. It’s not a choice to perform based on another’s ideas of what is best for you, but a response to an inner knowing. A “what” that will serve you, to be your best: in mind, body and spirit. Experiencing wholeness sets your life at ease. A knowing that guides you in movement, sustenance, thought, speech, in complete being, so that you thrive. For so long we have sought solutions outside ourselves instead of knowing our self and our innate ability to respond to what is the best. As you become enlivened to the truth of your unique person, your heart, you can experience true liberation — a freedom that allows you to thrive.

Self care is of the utmost importance; the most beneficial ingredient. Find your truth and live it. It is an expression of faith, a following of your heart and sensitivities and embracing truth to develop your inner listening skills and then experience miraculous transformations.

Remember: There is nothing, no thing outside of any of us that offers healing, wholeness, or peace. It lies within us, the key is the ability to unfold our tightly protected or conditioned heart so it can relate and pour forth its blessings on our life. Your heart can be sensitive and fiercely strong at the same time. It embodies the presence of both feminine and masculine energies. When your heart is balanced and open, it offers the truest form of blessing on your life as possible. It is the miracle you seek. It is the peace that passes all understanding. Nurturing, trusting, developing your heart is the most important task to be about in your daily life: it is the key to thriving. The transformation in physical life is the evidence of this truth. This is not a place of judging yourself for unfulfilled desires or negative qualities. It is a place to begin to love yourself unconditionally in spite of shortcomings and disappointments. When you can believe this in your heart, then you can experience a change in behavior: B.E.L.I.E.V.E Behaving Everyday Like I’m Eternal, Valuable, Entitled.

 

 

 

How to Make the Body’s Command Center     Happy

How to Make the Body’s Command Center Happy

   

Typically our food supply and lifestyle do not support a healthy liver. I wrote this to help me keep on task.  I hope it offers you some benefit as well.  

Here are lists to aid you in valuing and nourishing your liver!

The Liver -The Command Center for the Body

Supports almost every organ in the body
Regulates levels of most of the main blood chemicals
Produces energy by breaking down food into glucose
Helps rid the body of waste and toxins
Produces bile to help digest fat
Produces many essential amino acids and proteins needed for growth and repair of all bodily tissues and metabolic processes
Vital role in fighting infections
Able to regenerate, but extensive damage can impair this function

Help Me!

  • Organic foods help decrease the toxic burden. Some common toxins in your food: herbicides, growth hormones, and pesticides
  • Sulfur foods! Garlic and Onions
  • Cruciferous veggies increase the levels of glucosinolate (important for liver metabolism)
  • Beets are a super food (betaine) for the liver (betaine is a methyl donor which is important to protect against fatty liver)
  • Whole grains for detoxification. (B vitamins in whole grains aid in methylation and create the master antioxidant, glutathione)
  • Shitake Mushrooms
  • Nutrients that support methylation and thus liver function:
    • B2 (yeast, organ meats, oily fish, whole grains, avocados, millet, wild rice)
    • B6 (lightly cooked animal products, whole grains, legumes, nuts)
    • B12 (meat, dairy, fish, B12 supplements for vegans)
    • Folate (raw green, liver, sweet potatoes, bean sprouts)
    • Magnesium (leafy greens, dried apricots, avocados, most nuts and grains)
    • Zinc (oysters, whole oats, pumpkin seed, pecans, brazil nuts)

Hurt Me

• Poor diet and lack of exercise
• Proton Pump Inhibitors (long lasting reduction of gastric acid production)
• Corticosteroids (any of a group of steroid hormones produced in the adrenal cortex or made synthetically)
• Estrogen containing drugs
• Excessive alcohol (decreases glutathione, leading to toxic build up in the bloodstream and tissues)
• Processed foods including: smoked and cured foods
• Food allergens or sensitivities
• Harsh household chemicals, soaps, and shampoos
• Anger
• Unresolved or continuous stress

Liver Imbalances may show up as;

  • Skin discorders
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Chronic allergies
  • Autoimmunity
  • Chronic inflammatory disorders
  • Hepatitis
  • Cirrhosis
  • Gallstones
