No matter what age you are, the word stress is widely known. I teach kids yoga, and when I ask if they know what stress is, they often give just as good of an answer as an adult would.
Why is it we get so stressed anyway?
Are we taking on too much?
Are we strapped too thin?
Are we a perfectionist?
Are we feeling unbalanced and out of our body that the idea of feeling or living any other way just seems, well...too stressful to consider.
Yoga has helped me a great deal with the handling of stress and the management of the side effects of stress.
Anxiety, restlessness, bursts of anger, depression, irritability, sleeplessness, brain fog, tension, tightness, pain. I could go on and on, but this is a blog not a book.
So to help you on your path here are three of my favorite poses to help banish stress. Now mind you, if you have never done anything like this, note to self, that you may feel more stressed or anxious at first because it is new and different. But I assure you...
Two years ago to this day, we almost lost our daughter.
In December 2016, Lilly and I were in Mexico doing testing and treatments after an exhaustive 6 months of visiting many mainstream and alternative doctors and hospitals in America.
She is alive because of one thing.
The TNC program.
As we traveled we found over and over again that what we knew saved us time, gave us far greater insight into Lilly's condition than most anyone could see, and gave us tools that kept Lilly alive.
There were medical doctors who told Lilly she knew things about the digestive system they never were taught. She was so upset whenever she was told this that she cried….. She said, “they should know more than me after 40 years of working in this field.”
She knew more because of the Therapeutic Nutritional Counselor program.
We knew what professionals to seek out because I have written a textbook that is just shy of 800 pages loaded with information on 120...
Here is my true-blue-happened-to-me story.
Hold on to your hats…….it’s a trip!
Earlier this year, Julia and I were in Vegas when a man approached us and asked for money.
I felt impressed to give him something, so I opened my wallet. All I could find were $20-dollar bills, even though I knew I had smaller bills. After looking three or four times, I handed him a $20 and chalked it up to he needed $20.
When paying for our dinner immediately following this incident, all I could find were small bills!
A few days later someone was asking for help, so I gave them a $20.
Then another instance, raising money for a cat foundation, another $20.
Another instance, another $20.
Until I made it a habit to simply give away $20 bills.
And, I gave away a LOT of them…….
Then the magic started.
I needed to pay for something out of the ordinary.
When I went to count the cash I had been collecting from clients, I had over $1500 in $20 bills!

There is an awesome quote we raised our kids with and it recently came to mind as my youngest sat struggling with a homework assignment.
“Why do you try so hard to fit in if you were born to stand out?”
See, all my children have been taught to stand up for themselves and to not be afraid to stand out.
To be different.
To not go with the flow simply because it’s easier.
Amy would take an entire cucumber or red pepper to school and munch on it in science class. At first, she was weird for doing this, but then she became cool.
She didn't care what label she was given.
Eric would leave the house with a huge, green smoothie and have to explain to friends what he was chugging.
He didn’t care about looking different.
He stood out with his healthy drink and loved it. He loved himself.
Those are the lessons we taught our children.
Yet, now with my youngest, more than ever, I see the struggle that comes with Standing Up and Out in the public school system. Or in...

Did you know….
Many people who are overweight have an underactive thyroid.
This means that the metabolism is s-l-o-w, and foods cannot be processed quickly enough into energy so it simply stores it away – yup you guessed it – into fat cells.
Treating the underactive thyroid can be as easy as eliminating fluoride from your drinking water, adding nascent iodine (NOT TABLE SALT) to the diet, or eating seaweed!
Did I just say that? YES! Kelp is great for an underactive thyroid!
Many people who are overweight often have a malfunctioning pancreas.
The pancreas secretes hormones that determine whether the body’s main metabolic function will be anabolic or catabolic during a particular time.
When you are done eating, for example, more anabolic activity occurs because eating just increased your level of glucose.
The pancreas senses this and releases insulin (another hormone) which signals cells to increase their anabolic...
