For many, the holidays are positive, joyous occasions, but some of us experience a heightened sense of anxiety, grief, stress, and loneliness that can at times feel overwhelming.
As I thought about offering strategies to help folks through it, I was inspired by a powerful session with a client who arrived incredibly anxious to her appointment this week.
Normally, sessions consist of getting into the relaxed, trance state of hypnosis, then doing the “work,” but my intuition kicked in and acknowledged we needed to do some really good breath work first to relieve the anxiety and open her up for the best session possible.
She left the appointment feeling relieved, refreshed, grounded and peaceful. She’d started the appointment saying she didn’t even want to get out of the car, and left feeling gratitude for having come in.
I’d like to share the breathing exercise I led her through in hopes that this process will help you all...
Are you looking for natural ways to get more restful sleep? Does the idea of a great nights’ sleep make you hopeful for finding the motivation to exercise in the morning? Here’s an easy step-by-step process to give yourself permission to leave the day’s worries behind and allow deep, restful sleep.
There’s something so powerful about nature’s ability to heal the soul. It’s a universal sensation many of us have had the privilege of deeply connecting with. With today’s culture often leaving people feeling alone, overwhelmed, and disconnected, the outdoors remains an oasis for healing and connection.
When we take the body, mind, and soul out to nature, we notice the shift that occurs when we aren’t bombarded with thought-processing tasks. We become present. We get to meet and express our authentic self. We get to heal.
In the quiet of nature, without excessive distraction, our minds can begin to relax and focus, allowing for positive thoughts and the reprogramming of negative responses to be transformed into wisdom and reflection.
There are numerous scientific studies that have proven the benefits of being in nature as part of a holistic healing practice. Outdoor recreation is linked to lower levels of depression and...
Your immune system is your body’s natural defense system against foreign invaders like parasites, bacteria, viruses, microbes and toxins. It is designed to differentiate the cells that make up your body and eliminate the ones that are foreign. Your body uses an army of white blood cells to defend itself. Macrophages, a type of white blood cell found in almost all cells of the body, are constantly patrolling your body, looking to destroy any germs as soon as they enter. These cells are considered your ‘natural’ or inborn immunity. However, if an infection begins to take hold, your body fights back with the more powerful, specialized T- and B-cells. These cells give you acquired immunity because they remember the germs that attacked you in the past, so that same germ can never make you as ill again. Nourishing your immune system is very important for your overall health.

Health = Balance
The definition of health can vary from person to person. For some, it means eating a healthy diet. For others, health is measured in physical fitness. For many people out there, weight is a measure of health. For me, health pertains to many aspects of ourselves and is certainly more than physical.
Balance is at the center of my philosophy and is the foundation of my business, Warrior-Flow. I believe that work-life balance, a balanced diet program, balanced exercise, and a balanced nervous system are all important for overall health and wellness.
The Holiday season is upon us and for many of us with it comes parties, alcohol and a departure from our normal eating habits! Here are a few steps you can take to survive the parties and holiday feasts with all your good intentions in place.
Eat before you go: Have a small, protein filled snack about an hour before you have to leave for the party. The protein will keep you full longer and keep you from reaching for high calorie foods just because you are starving.
Check out all options before filling your plate: Before you take a plate, look at all the food options in the room and decide which ones will be the best choices. This does not mean you cannot have any “treats” but that you are going to decide which ones are really “special” and are worth the indulgence. (Because really, what are the holidays without some “treats”!)

Have you ever heard the joke about zucchini season? It goes like this: roll up your car windows! Seriously. Because during zucchini season, the harvest is so abundant that your neighbors might try to sneak their extra vegetables into your driver’s seat if you’re not careful.
This is an unfortunate scenario because, like many generously abundant vegetables, zucchini makes an exceptional ferment that will add fiber and probiotics to your diet for weeks—if not months!
In this article, I’m going to share with you the main benefits of fermenting your food, as well as the basic principles of fermentation for almost any vegetable. You’ll be empowered to ferment to your heart’s delight!
