This Month’s OBSESSIONS: April

1. Thieves Household Cleaner, by Young Living Essential Oils

With the recent Coronavirus scare, staying healthy, fit, strong and resilient is more important than ever! Remember, up to 80% of your immune system is located in your gut – your intestines, so having a strong system that is able to fight off pathogens, bad bacteria and viruses and KEEP YOU HEALTHY AND SAFE, is truly an inside out job that starts with your diet and the health of your microbiome!

In addition to taking care of your insides, of course we must also consider the outside but please don’t be tempted to use the commercial cleaning products and hand sanitizers that you commonly see. They are filled with NASTY chemicals that disrupt your body’s delicate hormonal and bacterial balance!! Plus, with all the natural and non-toxic options, there’s no need to use them!

One of the products I use most frequently for cleaning and disinfecting is Thieves Household Cleaner by Young Living.

Formulated with the power of Young Living’s famous Thieves essential oil blend, Thieves Household Cleaner is a concentrated, versatile solution that gives you a deep clean when scrubbing, degreasing, spot cleaning, dusting, and more—all without harsh chemicals. With its spicy-sweet aroma and plant-based formula, it’s great to use around everyone in your family, including pets – so I know it’s totally safe for my little Charlotte!
And I love it because it’s so versatile. I can use one product for countertops, windows, floors, and more. I can even use it to clean produce! If you want to learn more about this and other healthy, effective and non-toxic products for your whole family please click here.
2. Dr. Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution

CONFESSION: I really never was a big “bath fan”…but I think I’m converted! 😉

I’m sure you’ve heard about how healing, restorative and relaxing for both brain and body a good bath soak can be but as with all things, using the right products to help you get the job done is key!

I am LOVING Dr. Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution.

100% pure and natural (of course!) Dr Teal’s Glow & Radiance Pure Epsom Salt combines pure Epsom Salt (Magnesium Sulfate USP) with vitamin C to help ease sore, achy muscles while promoting glowing, youthful skin. The antioxidant-rich formula has added citrus essential oils to help provide relief from stress, soothe the senses, and uplift your mood. I love the clean orange-citrus smell! 🙂
3. Vital Choice Seafood
I’m sure you’ve heard about all the reasons seafood and fish can be good for you but have you also heard why it might NOT be?

As with ALL things, the SOURCE is key!! Where you get your information, food, products or even your beliefs and thoughts is the determining factor to what your results are! So please always have high standards for what goes in your brain and body and choose wisely! 🙂

Some of the potential benefits of seafood include:

  • It’s a good source of protein
  • It’s rich in vitamins and minerals that are particularly hard to get: including iodine, zinc, potassium, and vitamin B
  • It’s a great source of healthy fats
Yet some of the reasons seafood can be not good for you is that a lot of fish live and eat in our chemical-laden waterways, and mercury and other heavy metals and toxins accumulate in their systems. Mercury poisoning has been known to cause nervous system disorders and reproductive issues as well as developmental problems. Plus unless designated otherwise, almost ALL fish/seafood is farm-raised. Farmed fish is higher in inflammation-producing omega-6 fatty acids, and has LOWER levels of inflammation-fighting heart and brain healthy omega-3s. Plus, because of the crowded conditions in which farm raised fish are raised, they are routinely treated with antibiotics to help prevent infection and feed coloring and chemicals to make them grow faster, bigger and have their meat be a certain color. Keep in mind: this is all UNNATURAL and means the fish are living in and feed an unnatural diet which then affect YOU in an adverse way once you consume!
This is why I love Vital Choice as my #1 go-to source for online seafood and fish.
Vital Choice is a trusted source for fast home delivery of the world’s finest seafood and organic fare, harvested from healthy, well-managed wild fisheries and farms. They are a leading source of pure, healthy and sustainable foods as well as supplements and the fisheries that supply much of their seafood are certified sustainable either by MSC (look for their blue logo) or the State of Alaska (the remainder are deemed sustainable by the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s SeafoodWatch program). In addition, Vital Choice offers selected certified-organic and kosher-certified foods, picked for their superior nutritional and culinary qualities – there’s lots of amazing stuff on their webstore!
My fav is the canned tuna, the Sable fish and the wild salmon. Plus they have great travel-friendly pouches and packs that help me stay on my healthy program while on the road or too busy to cook!

Give them a try and let me know your favorite! 🙂
