Winter 3 Day Body Replenisher

antioxidant potassium BMD 3 day detox soup

Winter detoxing is a little different than a Spring detox. At this time of year your body is craving warmth which requires eating warmer foods and we are typically hungrier. However, when we eat more, we keep our bodies in a continual digesting mode which takes energy away from detoxing and other necessary functions and makes us more vulnerable to getting sick.

So how can we make the most of detoxing in the winter cooler months?

  1. Wear warmer clothing and wear socks as energy leaves through our extremities.
  2. Take hot showers or baths
  3. Have Infra-red sauna sessions
  4. Cozy up with a great book or herbal tea in front of the fire
  5. Trade in your cooler smoothies for warming broths and soups
  6. To further activate detoxification do hot/cold hydrotherapy. When you are in the shower do 1 minute hot to 30 seconds warm or cold for a few minutes. Have a hot tub? Get in and then out, in and out!!!
  7. Drink water at room temperature.
  8. Warm detox lemonade to start your day
  9. Include warming spices in your meals, cinnamon, cloves, ginger etc.
  10. Enjoy the Antioxidant-Potassium Broth and this 3 Day Winter Detox developed by Busy Mama Detox

 Three Day Winter Busy Mama Detox

The brain doesn’t distinguish between a real stressor or an imagined one. If you sat in a room all by yourself, happy and content, and started thinking about the guy who did you wrong years ago, and if that story still carries a charge for you – your body would quickly shift into the physiologic stress-state – increased heart rate and blood pressure, followed by decreased digestive function.

Any guilt about food, shame about the body, or judgment about health are considered stressors by the brain and are immediately transduced into their electrochemical equivalents in the body. You could eat the healthiest meal on the planet, but if you’re thinking toxic thoughts the digestion of your food goes down and your fat storage metabolism can go up. Likewise, you could be eating a nutritionally challenged meal, but if your head and heart are in the right place, the nutritive power of your food will be increased.

 

Consider some of the foods you’ve given strong associations to:

“Salt will raise my blood pressure.”

“Fat will make me fatter.”

“Sugar will rot my teeth.”

“I can’t make it through the day without my cup of coffee.”

“This meat will raise my cholesterol level.”

“This calcium will build my bones.”

To a certain degree, some of these statements may be true. But is it possible that we are instigating these effects? And if these effects are the inherent result of eating these foods, can you see how we can enhance those results with the potency of our expectations?

The placebo effect is not some rare and unusual creature. Continue reading »

Fat Loss Friday

This is an excerpt from the Busy Mama Detox, an on-line or in person program offered by me…

If you want to keep fat on your body then stay on this roller coaster……

  • Skip meals (under eat)
  • Overeat
  • Eat lots of sugar (alcohol, candy)
  • Eat lots of processed foods (cakes, cookies, muffins, breads, pasta)
  • Eat carbs in the morning

Doing these things will cause a sharp spike in your insulin levels and this SHUTS OFF your FAT BURNING potential and you enter FAT STORAGE MODE. Continue reading »

Do you have acne? A long standing rash? A yeast infection? Aging or damaged skin?

What is your skin telling you?

Are you ready to have the best skin ever?

Know that your skin is telling you something. It is a messenger wanting you to pay attention to what is happening inside of you.

It matters what you put in your mouth and on your skin.

From the foods we eat, to the air we breathe, to the stress we feel, we are introducing pathogens and particles, making and breaking cells, mobilizing and stimulating various actions, all day and night.

Fact: We make waste. And if your internal organs can’t keep up with all the cleaning that’s needed, it’s going to push through your skin!

I had the pleasure of chatting with Amandha Vollmer, BSc, ND, Holistic Health Practioner, the other day and we were discussing skin health……

“I often see people with eczema come to me for assistance. Each time, there is an over-burdened liver and the skin is being used to excrete waste. The waste then sits upon the skin, aggravating it and leading to a rash.

The worst cases I see are those who then were prescribed cortisone topical creams. This temporarily can make the rash lessen, however it not only suppresses the action of the liver, which is trying desperately to get toxins out of the body, but it adds a further toxic load to the liver for processing. It also depresses the immune system leading to a whole other ‘hot mess’.

So no wonder the rash always comes back with a vengeance! Often a stronger cortisone is prescribed and if the suppression continues the body has no choice but to put the overload in the lungs, leading to weakness, wheezing and many times asthma, especially in children. In adults, this action generally leads to the common ‘arthritis’, as the toxins are stored in the only ‘safe’ place the body can put it, the joints (after, of course the lymph system is full).”

I have been enjoying using Yummy Mummy products that Amandha makes, by hand and with a lot of love added.

Here are a few of her favourites to help clear up any skin issues:

  1. Parsley infusion tea or tincture for the kidneys
  2. Topical castor oil for joints and lymph mixed with frankincense essential oil
  3. SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

    Yummy Mummy Eczema Cream made from a combination of calendula & chickweed for drawing out skin toxins. She designed her Eczema Cream to be used as a treatment to pull out toxins that are sitting under the skin. Once they are out, the skin is cleansed and re-moisturized. After about a week of use it can be used without removal. So far I have had 99% success rate with this protocol (and many times in combination with Hazelwood jewellery, which upregulates the liver enzyme 2 detoxification pathway via interaction with the skin.)

    Another great way to get the BEST SKIN EVER is to use skin care products from Living Libations.

Nadine Artemis, owner of Living Libations, whom I’ve also spoken to about skin health, uses exquisite organic serums to bring balance and healing to the face with her botanical alchemy. She uses the life force from flowers, dewdrops, plants, sun and water to bring a radiant healthy glow to your face.

Here are a few of her favourites to help clear up any skin issues to give you the BEST SKIN EVER:

Seabuckthorn gets to the root cause of imbalance in the skin by going deep within the lipid (fat) layers and healing from the inside out. It regenerates cells, protects against cell water loss and is rich in vitamins C, E and pro-vitamins A and B. Also available are Rose, Frankincense, Neroli, Chocolate and Vanilla Oils.

 

  1. zippity-dewZippity Dew Dab is a pure essential oil blend for those unstoppable, un-popable blemishes and acne. It works to bring balance and harmony to your skin. One drop is all that you need or mix it in with any of her
  1. all-seeing-eye-cremeAll Seeing Eye Cream is a think, rich, luxurious cream that nourishes and soothes the delicate skin about your eyes. Dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles will enjoy an influx of moisture with this wonder cream.

mre-TheKetoBeginning-300x250_01Friday Fat Loss Tip #1

You can’t achieve your outcome (goal) if you don’t consistently change a behaviour.

One area we focus on during any of the healthy programs that are offered (Busy Mama Reboot, 10 Day Detox, Holistic Weight Loss/Management) is adding healthy fats to our diets. One change could be adding a fish oil supplement, an avocado to your salad, some hemp/chia seeds to your breakfast or making fat lattes – which my clients LOVE!

The important point is to make one change only and make it a habit before you start adding more habits because then you are more likely to stop doing everything!

We’ve been told for years that eating fat will make us fat…but that is not true. Today there are more low fat/no fat products than ever before and our population is getting more obese by the mouthful.

I bet that you might even be afraid to eat more fat during your day…I know I was. To start my morning with oil added to my morning routine does not sound inviting or productive, but let me tell you, in days I could see the fat melting from my waist and thighs. (Also, my energy went up, my cravings went down and the spikes in my mood leveled out). I have also consciously starting adding more healthy fats to each meal and snack.

 

How did I start this new adventure?

For years I have been consuming MCT oil or coconut oil during the day but never in the morning (such as added to my smoothies, cooking with it or a tablespoon before a meal—because I know the brain is 60% fat and good fats are required for healthy living). After reading the Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey, I started to add his brand of Brain Octane to my morning tea (plus his collagen)…this translated into a inches lost from my butt and waistline, a softening of my afternoon slump and my sugar cravings decreasing.

Then I stumbled upon healthfulpursuit.com and loved what holistic nutritionist Leanne Vogel was saying and bought her e-book, The Keto Beginning: Complete Guide +30-day Meal Plan…which has 17 chapters, 147 pages + over 70 high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein, dairy-, gluten-, sugar-, grain-, legume-free recipes. It’s the rocket fuel for achieving flawless health and effortless weight loss through sound nutrition practices and vibrant food preparation in ways you’ve never seen before.

It has further expanded my knowledge about nutrition and it is definitely worth the read. You can pick up a copy here…..

 

Which brings me to today…Your Fat Loss Friday Tip….What behaviour change can you make to add more healthy fat into your diet?? If one is making a fat latte, then check out these super recipes.

If you can’t seem to sort out what to do, then email me at tanya@moveyourbody.ca for Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching and I will be more than happy to chat with you.

 

In the meantime…enjoy this Turbo Fat Charge Latte from Leanne…

This Turbo Fat Charge Latte formula has…

  • The MCT oil: boosts metabolism, kicks up our fat burning.
  • The cacao butter: boosts serotonin levels so you start the day off happily.
  • The collagen: resets leptin, so that your body understands what fuel is what.
  • The hemp hearts: send the message to your body; specifically your hormone system, that everything is safe. 3 tablespoons of hemp hearts are 0 net carbs, so shouldn’t stop your “fast” if you’re practicing intermittent fasting.

 

 

Turbo Fat Charge Latte

  • 8 oz. brewed decaf coffee or regular coffee or your favorite tea or hot water
  • 1 tablespoon MCT oil or coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon cacao butter
  • 1 tablespoon hemp hearts
  • 2-4 drops alcohol-free stevia, optional
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed collagen

 

Instructions

  1. Brew coffee or tea, add to the jug of your high-powered blender along with MCT oil, cacao butter, hemp hearts and stevia. Blend on high for 1 minute. During the last 10 seconds, add collagen. Transfer to a cup and enjoy.

If this is overwhelming…just start by adding a tsp to tbsp. of coconut or MCT to your tea or coffee in the morning. This action step is better than taking none at all.

 

Notes

MCT Oil vs. Coconut Oil: Totally a preference thing. Do what feels right.
How To Make Vegan: Replace the collagen with a touch-more hemp seeds, up to 3 tablespoons (3 tablespoons = 3g carbs, 9g protein)

 

What is MCTs and the Benefits

According to rebootedbody.com, MCT oil is a concentrated form of coconut oil. The extremely healthy saturated fat in coconut is comprised of Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT). And MCT oil is a concentrated form of that fat. However, according to healthimpactnews.com, MCT oil has had the amazing fat – lauric acid removed and the author states that eating coconut oil is better…if you are confused, don’t be.  Balance it out. I cook with coconut oil and use it on my hair, skin and teeth. I drink MCT oil and use it for my teeth. Play around and find out what works for you.

Benefits…

It’s a boost for your metabolism. MCTs increase the body’s ability to burn more energy by increasing thermogenesis.

It’s a kick-start to awesome weight loss. MCTs may help reduce the size of fat cells, leading to weight loss.

It’s a constant, steady energy. MCTs provide rapid-fire energy, directly to the places that need it most, burns clean and constant without the energy lulls.

Its rocket fuel for your brain. MCTs quickly raise ketone levels to provide your brain with an alternative fuel that won’t die out.

Let me know how adding MCT or coconut oil to your morning changes affects your outcome…

 

Healthy Hugs,

Tanya

The Keto Beginning

The Bulletproof Diet by Dave Asprey

 

 

 

 

 

Aug 262015
 

For decades I have had eating issues. Where once I would eat to stuff down my emotions and not really be conscious as to what I was doing, I am now conscious but can still have trouble stopping myself.

In my teens I controlled my intake of food and was bulimic. I open up in my blog post, Cookie Dough in the Dark, which you can read here. I was searching for stability and for more love than I was getting, but I didn’t know that on a conscious level at the time.  Now in my 40’s, I don’t starve myself or toss my cookies, but I do still binge eat and lose myself in food. I really wish I didn’t because I know it’s not healthy, but I have this tugging deep within me. In the past year I have been studying the Chakras more deeply. I thought that to be more evolved in this life I was to work on my higher chakras, but as I’ve learned, it’s the lower chakras that I need to heal, specifically my Root Chakra which when unbalanced can result in eating disorders.

I grew up with very loving parents but for whatever reason I craved more emotional love than they gave me. Your root chakra grounds you to whatever brings you stability in your life. I had enough food, water and shelter but I lacked emotional grounding, safety and security. I know that I was affected horribly by my parent’s divorce. I felt alone, unsafe, unloved and I believe now that this affected many of my behaviours with myself and my friends as I didn’t trust anyone because I thought they would leave me. May sound irrational but that’s how I interpreted what was going on in my life & frankly that’s what matters. I don’t wallow in self-pity but I am conscious enough now to link how I was feeling to my actions. I used food for comfort, albeit, a false comfort. I used it to feel safe, to feel secure because I felt I wasn’t enough for anyone around me. I overate to compensate for what was missing in my life. I ate because I was angry and I didn’t know how else to deal with it. I insulated myself with extra fat to protect myself from those around me.

Sometimes you can explain something rationally but your deeply ingrained habits can take over. I know that my greatest desire is to be healthy and to live a long healthy life, but when I’m triggered by something (and I’m becoming more and more aware of what it is) that can fly out the window and copious amounts of sugar become my friend again.

Sure I can exercise willpower and not have sugar in my house, but it doesn’t work…it’s always somewhere! This is where the deeper work comes in. I really have to get honest about what I am feeling and find out what my triggers are so that I can work on healing myself. I have to work through the pain that I have pushed so deeply down within myself. It’s not easy but I’m doing it slowly and surely.

So, the first chakra is about rooting myself – it’s about feeling safe. So I need to trust in my journey. I need to let go of the fear that I am not enough. I need to know that I am loved by me and that I am a unique human being and that I matter. I need to believe this from me. To help ground myself I practice grounding poses such as knee to chest pose (Pavanamuktasana), head to knee pose (Janu Sirsansana), Lotus flexion (Padmasana), squatting pose (Malasana) and Tree Pose. I also go into nature and notice my connection to the beautiful earth that I live on. And teaching Core Conditioning also helps as I infuse many of the teachings from all of the Chakras into the class (and this benefits us all).

I also realize that the second chakra is constantly seeking pleasure and that I need to keep my ego in check. The lure of habit can overcome me, trap me and cause me to overindulge as I lose my awareness of the present moment and instead try to recreate a past pleasure. Just by being aware of this I can begin to become conscious and know that I can change this pattern (albeit with some patience and work).

When I first started studying the chakras, I did not see any connection to my life and the issues that I had/have. But with more education, more digging, more time, it was like a flower growing in my garden – it began to bloom- and with each stage I began to see more. A flower doesn’t just show up one day. It lays its roots beneath the earth and with enough love (water, air, sun), it begins to flourish, slowly but surely, into a magnificent flower. In this fast paced world we live in, we often want immediate results, we want to be told to eat this or do this exercise and all will be well. But it never works long term. I know it takes time. And as much as I wish the self-sabotage could be nipped in the bud, I am granting myself time to open up and let go as I grow in this world.

During the 12 weeks of the Busy Mama Detox, I know you will discover many wonderful things about yourself that will root and grow. Without force, you will learn what makes you tick and why you are ready to let go & move forward. You will have more energy and better health because you will take the time to listen to yourself and to trust yourself.

I look forward to you becoming part of the Busy Mama Detox adventure starting September 6th. It’s another wonderful step in your journey towards having an abundance of energy, a clear mind, an ageless beauty, a smaller waistline and the best health ever!!!!

I love the lack of routine the summer offers…. for a while…and then I start to crave the routine again. I notice that when I don’t have routine I tend to eat a little more, move a little differently and pack on some additional pounds that affects my energy, my mood and my ability to slide into my pants that I know I’m going to have to be putting on soon!

I don’t believe in being rigid all the time, you have to have time to play and loosen the demands that life puts upon us. But you also have to have a limit. And friends, I don’t know about you, but my limit has been reached. I’ve licked my fair share of ice cream cones this summer and tried too many ooey-gooey looking recipes on Pinterest. I’ve peddled my bike, played in my garden and whooped it up in my classes but not enough to balance out the lack of routine of my summer.

Then, as much as I don’t feel my age, things have changed in my body. I can’t get away with what I did even 5 years ago when I turned 40..(read Uh-oh, Are you 40 or Older blog). I have to be smarter & wiser and pay more attention to my body and health as the years pass by. I have to say that this “sucks” sometimes.

I know what I have to do to feel my “best” and it takes some discipline. I know what I “have” to do but sometimes it’s easier to let it slide…but I don’t like the outcome. And I can’t have it both ways.  I know that it makes it much easier when I am receiving support, guidance and endless motivation. It makes it easier when I know the “why” behind what I am doing as opposed to just being told what to do. When I know the why behind what I am eating and why I am exercising there is a flow to my day as opposed to being rebellious if I am “TOLD” what to do.

rolling out TFLWhen you understand WHY it is important that your movements are FUN as opposed to “exercise”, you understand the connection between the food choices you make. This is known as the theory of hedonic compensation which you will learn about in a Movement Monday (and so much more).

I’m always asked if I’m a “vegetarian”, “raw foodist”, “paleo” etc., because human brains like “categorization” and people want to know which diet is best. But there is no “one size fits all”. During the next 12 weeks, you will find your groove with your diet as I coach you to listen to your body. When you listen you will figure it out. Be willing to test new methods even if they fly in the face of current beliefs or practices. Be willing to change because what worked in your 20’s, 30’s, or 60’s, may not work for you anymore. During the Busy Mama Detox, you will raise your nutrition awareness and changes will result because you are paying attention to what you are popping in your mouth. On Green Tuesdays, you will be more aware of how many greens you are getting in your diet and this alone will shift you to better health, a smaller waistline, more energy, better sleeps and an even temperament ( no crazy blood sugar swings).  Sure, you can do Green Tuesdays on your own, but getting emails weekly takes it to another level…just saying!!

For the past 25 years I have coached nutritionally and physically many clients to feel their best (emotionally, physically and mentally). They’ve learned that long-term habits always trump short term diets. They’ve learned that to keep the weight off they must be patient, they must grow into new habits instead of “willpower-ing” themselves to be strict, and they learn to love the journey and themselves.

I look forward to you becoming part of the Busy Mama Detox adventure starting September 6th. It’s another wonderful step in your journey towards having an abundance of energy, a clear mind, an ageless beauty, a smaller waistline and the best health ever!!!!

 Thyroid Imbalance

This is an except for the Busy Mama Detox Program regarding Thyroid Imbalance….

I hear so many people having issues with their thyroid that I wanted to share some information with you from The Sunfood Diet Success System by David Wolfe7.

The thyroid is a large endocrine gland situated at the base of the neck and controls your basal metabolic rate. An underactive thyroid slows the metabolic rate and increases the chance of obesity whereas an overactive thyroid speeds up metabolism leaving one excessively thin. Continue reading »

Mindfulness Moment

Take a moment in your day to bask in the beauty of the present moment, to breath and to feel the tingle of the cells throughout your body.

May you listen to your longing to be free.
May the frames of your belonging be large enough for the dreams of your soul.
May you arise each day with a voice of blessing whispering in your heart …something good is going to happen to you.
May you find harmony between your soul and your life.
May the mansion of your soul never become a haunted place.
May you know the eternal longing that lies at the heart of time.
May there be kindness in your gaze when you look within.
May you never place walls between the light and yourself.
May you be set free from the prisons of guilt, fear, disappointment and despair.
May you allow the wild beauty of the invisible world to gather you,
mind you, and embrace you in belonging.
–  John O’Donahoe
