Let’s talk about green tea today. Don’t you love my matcha maker, btw?
Green tea can help calm symptoms of PCOS and is said to have anti-androgenic effects. What does that mean? Well, the things I described above and some technical terms- idiopathic hirsutism, androgenic alopecia, and acne.
When I analyze the results of my favorite hormone lab, I can see how your body is metabolizing testosterone and estrogen. Are you metabolizing estrogen down a cancerous pathway? I see that. Is testosterone metabolizing down this unfavorable pathway? How are your cortisol levels?
I work with clients on diet, stress reduction, rest, movement (exercise or other), and supplements based on their lab work.
Show me the data and I will show you results!
There is a supplement that is my favorite for up regulating this pathway. You can find it here, and will be eligible for discounts in the future.

Excerpt- “It is now clear that a specific green tea catechin, (-)epigallocatechin-3-gallate, can modulate the production and biological actions of androgens and other hormones. Modulation of androgenic activity and administration of (-)epigallocatechin-3-gallate may be useful for the treatment of various hormone-related abnormalities, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia, baldness, and acne, as well as androgen-dependent and -independent prostate cancers.”
(Even though this is a food product, This is not medical advise and should be discussed with you doctor)

If you see me all frizzed out and smiling, you know you caught me after a good workout. Someday I will be up to 33 lbs like her. Someday…
Snap, fizz and feeling good. We tried a new -alcoholic sip tonight by the pool. Reminiscent of a wine spritzer, perhaps?
I found this at my local grocery store (H‑E‑B for the win!). But, you know I started searching around and subscribed to the variety pack- save $10 on my link OR get the Paloma, Mule, Mojito and Margarita.
What I do when my gut feels full and inflamed-
As a holistic health coach, I have a few non-negotiable habits I lean on…
1. Prioritizing rest- reading a book, spending downtime with people I love, hanging out watching birds sip from the natural swimming pool, etc.
2. Deep belly breaths, focused on healing my gut- easy, free and often overlooked
3. Staying hydrated and focused on minerals. My favorite is .minerals and my filtered water.
4. Sipping slowly on this homemade bone broth (this recipe is from my Cancer-Fighting Kitchen cookbook). I make a huge pot and freeze in mason jars so it is always on hand. To this, I heated and added fresh ginger and fresh garlic, juice of 1/2 lime, Celtic sea salt and curry powder. I just told my husband that I could live off of this! So delicious!!
5. Gentle movements like Pilates, yoga, or just stretching.
6. Definitely planning on getting in front of my red light, too.
7. session to calm my central nervous system.
What are your go-to habits?

I pride myself in staying up to date on information that may benefit my clients. I am checking boxes as I continue to learn and study the body. This time is was a quick refresher course on the thyroid.
Say you are sober without saying you’re sober.
1 year being alcohol-free.
Ready for some inner work? Do you feel stuck and ready to overcome health hurdles? Do you have a desire to help others? This is a quote from my recent podcast interview on the Health Detective. I was at a place where I was called to do the work required to get well. What about you, friend?
Use the link in my IG bio- there's less than two weeks left to take advantage of some exciting offerings.
Summer Open House is going on and you can get a sneak p*ek into what is all about! And the impressive $1k discount on the course (which includes lab work and results for you) only happens once a year!!
The new Pilates room is my daughter’s former room. She moved to a bigger bedroom and we got a workout haven, thanks to my husband’s great idea! And my daughter is back on her room working out!
Super simple and satisfying! Protein- sardines and lentil pasta. Fat- olive oil and olives. Yummy carbs- artichoke, peppers and mint leaves. Add some garlic, juice of 1 fresh lemon and some salt. Soooo amazing for my post workout meal.
When you are moderately reactive to “healthy foods.” This is why every client gets a food sensitivity lab done. You don’t even have to be eating the food to be reactive. When you’re eating health, but your health seems to be declining- it isn’t because you are getting older. There is a reason. This is the 1st step to healing.
Today was about getting enough protein, post workout, and preventing disease.
Quinoa, h**p seeds, mushrooms, olives, broccoli sprouts, beet greens, roasted garlic cloves, and sweet potatoes!
Making an investment into the bank of my health. BioMagnetic therapy session-
This is a first for me. I left with a new spring in my step.
I have felt drained mentally and physically lately. I didn’t feel like myself. I believe there are so many “untapped” modalities that contribute to our healing process.
I may ruffle a few feathers, but conventional medicine has A LOT of holes.
If insurance doesn’t cover the treatment that resonates with you… don’t walk away. It resonates for a reason. Our body is one unit that wants to heal- the energy, minerals, and bacteria that makes up a lot of our life force needs help- not symptom-based meds.
I love helping my clients feel their innate vitality. And I am happy to support other people in this space that add to my capacity to thrive and help others. I’m feeling very grateful to have access to true healing!
International Women’s day, I see you. Took myself on a walk, feeding myself some salad with sprouted pumpkin seeds, h**p seeds, blackberries, blackberry balsamic, nooch, with fennel and wild caught cod. I hope you are moving and eating what fuels your body, too!
See ya IBS! Are you ready yet? Tired of your p**p, gas, heartburn and whacked out hormones dictating how you live?
Bold and beautiful- I forgot about that side of me until I put on this super bright new lipstick, Levi’s that fit well and some cute new wedge boots.
Yes, I am a holistic health practitioner and yes- I still get in ruts, just like my clients.
How else would I really know how to coach people out of a ditch?
Looks aren’t everything- not at all! However, when I switch out of a hoodie into a blouse, change out of my joggers/yoga pants and put on some sassy lipstick- I transform into my best version of me.
So, for me… I need to do this more often.
How about you? Do you have a different mood depending on what you wear?
I went to a really fun succulent workshop today.
As the owner was explaining the way to treat the plant so it won’t die… it was pretty easy. Don’t pay too much attention to it. Water occasionally, let it see the light- but not direct sunlight outside or it may burn.
I think I can keep this alive.
How many of you middle age mommas have been able to get by with this kind of self-care?
BUT NOW- hormones are out of whack, you are bloated a good majority of the time, fatigued… have about 10-15 extra pounds?
Unfortunately, the human body requires a bit more, right?
Nutrient dense foods
And a bit more…
I have developed a program to get you moving in the right direction. I would love to get on a call with you and see if I can help you feel better- with a few steps in the right direction!
Soup IS love! And so are local gf/df grilled cheese sandwiches! We live in an amazing city.

Why go “dry?”
*Save $$ on those anti-aging creams- alcohol is aging you!
*Maintain pelvic floor integrity- can’t hold your p*e? S*x is painful or not enjoyable? (Alcohol often irritates your urethra and bladder. This irritation can cause problems for the pelvic floor).
*Spare your liver (oh yes- the organ that is related to anger… give it some rest)
*Save brain cells (alcohol literally kills brain cells, as in… they don’t work and they are gone forever).
*Learn to have fun just being your awesome self! You’re cool without it.
*Value heart health (Greek philosophers agreed, more or less, that the heart was linked to our strongest emotions. Plato argued for the dominant role of the chest in love and in negative emotions of fear, anger, rage and pain.) I think I have felt all of these after a night at the bar… sometime or other. Please don’t make the argument that wine (polyphenols) are good for your heart.
*Cancer sucks- (Nearly 750,000 cases of cancer diagnosed worldwide in 2020, or 4%, can be attributed to alcohol consumption)
*Choose healthier risky behaviors with a sober mind
*Did I almost forget the gut? Your gut hates alcohol. Period.
*Be a rebel and choose not to imbibe- the only addictive substance that is celebrated and you have to make an excuse for not using.
I said stupid, uncharacteristic things when I was drinking. I felt like garbage. I asked God to take away the desire. He did. I have been free from alcohol for at least 6 months.
My husband and I drink adaptogens and nootropics- supporting stress relief, mood and brain health. This is our favorite brand. Our favorite nighttime drink is a can of Light Wave. The bottle in the photo is my favorite “social outing” drink. We mix it with Blood Orange Ginger beer and it is perfect.
Bring on the New Year luck! I’m ready! What are you traditions? I want to hear all about them!!!
Trying hard not to be Grinchy this year.
Sometimes, we just need to put on our best holiday scarf and/or blanket, put a smile on our face and go through the motions until we feel it.
Some years are easier than others, some stages in life are hard and some are easy. And you know what? That is OK! Take it easy on yourself.
No need to go into debt for the holiday “feels.” Because, you know what feels bad- debt flowing into the new year.
Eat the food that makes you feel good, take plenty of rest times- especially my IBS and out of whack hormones friends. We need to give ourselves permission.
Enjoy the sweet moments with those you love.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and healthy happy wishes for all you celebrate this season!
While I figure out how to reconnect my FB with my appt calendar, here is a link if you want to set up a consultation.
Community, a wishing tree and macrobiotic dining.
Think about your community, friend. Who do you surround yourself with when you are not at work or home?
Jim Rohn once said, “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Do you agree or disagree?
I think this is fascinating. Can our friendships influence our behavior, beliefs and actions? Absolutely. Can they shake my core beliefs that have been developing for almost 5 decades? Probably not.
However, if you consider that your friendships will influence your life, I think it is worthwhile to evaluate those friendships.
If you suffer from IBS, anxiety, or any other nervous system linked health issue- this is especially important!
A beautiful day in which I am surrounded by quality food and conversation in the heart of Austin, surrounded by trees, including this Wishing Tree is influenced by these ladies!
My friends these days are not random. They are compassionate, encouraging, health focused and many of them are prayer warriors. This kind of person fills my cup and I am able to help more people.
