Excerpts from the Sun Chapter in my new book! COMING SOON!

by Karen Urbanek

I was counseling a woman who had come in for help with her 15-year-old daughter. Her daughter had terrible bowels and could not eat anything without getting sick. She had no energy, had been pulled from school, and sat inside on the computer and TV. She had once been active on sports teams and had many friends, but now, she was miserable.

She had been labeled by the doctors with the typical diagnoses of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, but nothing they offered was helping. We talked about diet, how often she was in the sun, walking outside, on the phone, where the smart meter was located, and more.

The mother’s reply took me off guard, “The doctor told her she could not be in the sun as she would get cancer, and she could never walk barefoot again because she would get parasites.”

At times like this I am really glad my liver works! Because had it not been so darn clean, every...

TOLERATE or ELIMINATE?

healthy living motivate Apr 10, 2019

My water wasn’t even spiked New Years Eve 2018, when I committed to something WAY out of my box.

Taking over the free local newspaper as editor..... for fun.

Insanity? Yes.

 

However, I have met wonderful people, and one of the contributors is my friend Kevin Wright.  

He’s a big fish in business, but don’t let that scare you.

He is a motivator, so I titled his column #MOTIVATE.

Today I am sharing his article from the last edition that motivated me.

After reading this article I made a HUGE shift and took a step in my life I have been putting off for over two years.

I bet YOU will too!

ENJOY!

Karen

 

TOLERATE or ELIMINATE?

In my experience as a business leader, people complain a lot and about a lot of different things. I sometimes find myself getting complaining too. Assessing “root cause” is something that I find myself chasing all the time in my career. Most of the time the root cause of a person’s pain, injustice, insult, or...

How Does Food Affect Your Mood? Healthy Gut Bacteria -The Hidden Antidepressant

Last night was a night to remember for me. No, it wasn’t the gorgeous scene of eating at Cliffside Restaurant.  No, it wasn’t reuniting with my sister and fine-dining together after 20 months of living on opposite sides of the world. And it wasn’t even our super charming discount-giving server, Austin.

It was that my pants couldn’t even unzip far enough to relieve the bloating in my abdomen, and my mood became strangely pessimistic that night and into this morning.

That pessimism didn’t just come from falling off my healthy eating kick with fries and a root beer float, though. It was influenced by a chemical reaction that happened in my gut. Oils from deep fried foods and sugars in sweets interfere with the body’s ability to properly produce hormones and neurotransmitters, responsible for our mood and happiness.

The reality is, our food culture is setting us up for mental health failure. But we can do our part to set ourselves up for success!...
