1. A Mind of Your Own: The Truth about Depression and How Women Can Heal Their Bodies To Reclaim Their Lives, by Kelly Brogan, MD
Both a New York Times bestseller and International bestseller, this book is taking the natural and holistic industry by storm!
This is a really important read for anyone who struggles with mood problems, is taking any kind of medication or undergoing treatment for mood or emotional-related disorders or knows someone who is.
Dr. Kelly Brogan is a pioneer and expert in the field who postulates that depression is not a disease. It is a symptom.
With 1 in 4 women now taking medication to “treat” depression and/or anxiety we have a real problem on our hands. In addition, these drugs have steadily become the panacea for everything from grief, irritability, panic attacks, to insomnia, PMS, and stress. Worst of all, people are not getting better as the real underlying causes are not being addressed.
In this groundbreaking, science-based and holistic approach, Dr. Brogan shatters the mythology conventional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression. Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings, combined with years of experience from her clinical practice, Dr. Brogan illuminates the true cause of depression: it is not simply a chemical imbalance, but a lifestyle crisis that demands a reset. It is a signal that the interconnected systems in the body are out of balance – from blood sugar, to gut health, to thyroid function– and inflammation is at the root.
This book is a WEALTH of information and much-needed help for women to help heal their bodies, alleviate inflammation, and feel like themselves again without a single prescription!
2. Coated Silver – Ultimate Immune Defense, by Cymbiotika
My new #1 natural immune system booster! 🙂
I love all the products from Cymbiotika as they are a extremely impressive company with the highest of standards for potent and all natural, real-food products.
Their new Coated Silver is very timely right now with everyone boosting their immune health!
Silver is one of Earth’s most precious elements, a trace mineral found in the soil. For thousands of years silver has been valued for its beneficial health properties. We know silver is not an essential element for biological processes, however, when taken internally and topically in the correct form, silver acts as a potent mineral antibiotic that can neutralize viruses, fungus, yeast and mold, while supporting friendly bacteria which is critical for a healthy and robust gut microbiome. Standard conventional therapies are designed to kill certain pathogenic bacteria, yet at the same time they kill healthy bacteria, aka friendly flora. It is well known in the medical community that a healthy gut with healthy bacteria, equals a strong immune system.
I take 1-2 drops sublingually and sometimes diffuse it too! 🙂
3. Calming Spirit Herbescent Herbal Tea, by Herescent Tea & Botanicals
For the past 8 months I have been studying and learning about the amazing healing power of plants and herbs and am quickly becoming quite the fan! They are truly nature’s medicine and have been used in all ancient cultures for their balancing, life-enhancing and medicinal qualities!
This is one of my new favorites to either drink or dry vaporize. It’s a beautiful combination of herbs with lavender to soothe anxiety, oatstraw to strengthen nerves, scullcap to relax the mind and several herbs to calm and support a nervous stomach.
It makes me feel calm and balanced and I just love opening the bag and even smelling it because it smells so wonderful too!
I hope these products help you! Please give them a try and let me know:)
