Benefits of Sea Moss

Hi and Welcome back, Beauties!

As I’ve stated in my previous post, it is now officially Winter (not my favorite season)! It’s now the end of the year and of course as the seasons change, we change too! So it’s important to cleanse yourself of toxins or any build up when the season changes, to prevent you from getting the common cold or flu. While on my fast a couple weeks ago, instead of just drinking water and tea, this time I decided to make fruit smoothies with sea moss aka Irish moss. As some of you may know, sea moss has a collective of 92 of 102 minerals that the body is made up of!

So of course, this stuff is amazing! To prepare my sea moss, I boil it until it becomes a gel and I store it in the fridge. I usually use a tablespoon while incorporating it into my smoothies and although sea moss isn’t so tasty, you can barely taste it when it’s mixed into milk, a smoothie or whatever you choose! One thing I realized while having sea moss on my fast was that it gave me a boost of energy! Any time I started to feel weak, I would blend up some fruit along with my sea moss and within minutes I was revived!

Sea moss is known for boosting energy, curing anemia, bettering your skin, helps with digestion problems as well as improving your mental and ect. I could go on and on with the benefits of sea moss, but I rather stick with telling you how it helped benefit me! For as long as I can remember, I always struggled to keep my body warm, now trying sea moss I can see how much warmer my body has become. I’ve also noticed how my skin has become much clearer and I feel like my face has more of a glow to it now. I have had acne problems since I hit puberty and I’m telling you, I’m loving my skin now!

So if you’re having any skin problems such as rashes, acne, eczema and or psoriasis, sea moss is the answer for you! Another problem I’ve been experiencing for a long time before converting to being vegan and fasting is constipation! And as you can imagine, constipation sucks! Constipation leaves you feeling bloated, full or causes stomach pain. Worry no more! Sea moss will definitely help aid with digestion, just changing your diet can also help!

Lastly, because of all the bad foods we put into our bodies, it has our mental out of wack! It definitely helps me to think clearer and tames my anxiety as well as it brings my stress levels down! As you all should know, stress is very dangerous to your health, so sea moss would definitely help in this area! If you always find yourself stressed, take some time to yourself and meditate (yes, it really helps)! I hope I’ve been helpful, please check back later for more health and beauty tips!

GMO vs Organic

Hello Beauties, welcome back!

Most of us don’t think into the foods we put into our bodies on the regular basis. We wonder why we have simple but yet bothersome problems such as constipation, loss of remembrance or insomnia. On that note, lets go over what GMO stands for. GMO stands for genetically modified organisms, which means they are created through technology. It’s not natural at all, so why do we eat it?

GMO’s are unhealthy they can cause long standing health problems. It can even cause harm to your organs and cause you to be over weight. Not to mention GMO’s need a substantial sum of pesticides and herbicides which are poison. Doesn’t sound okay for our health nor the atmosphere! Because GMO’s aren’t natural they don’t really give us the nutrients we need.

With more information getting out there on GMO’s people try to get organic foods, which is hard because GMO seeds travel and cross breed. Cross breeding develops new poison and irritants. Eating foods that could potentially cause autism should not even be on the market. Even though organic foods are harder to find, try to eat as organic as possible (organic meaning natural food found in nature). Natural foods are alkaline which helps the body care for and cure itself.

Eating organic leads you to optimal health preventing many, many diseases, giving you a longer life! You’ll realize that you have more energy and a more steady sleep pattern while eating natural foods. It’ll definitely help you get more in tune with yourself. Eating healthier can help with small but yet bothersome problems like eczema, acne and even weight challenges! So what are you eating tonight? GMO or organic?

Did you know?

Hello Beauties,

Did you know that your body has it’s own clock? A lot of us don’t know this, which takes our whole system off track. When this happens you might experience bloating, constipation and stomach cramps. So today I want to talk about the patterns of eating. I’m going to explain what you should be eating at the proper times of the day.

Like with a car, you can’t put just any kind of gas or oil in it and expect it to function correctly. The same goes for our bodies, we have to watch what we put in it! Any time before noon you’re suppose to eat fruits and drink alkaline water such as shungite water or water with key lime and or tea. Doing this, your body is able to cleanse itself of waste, creating an alkaline environment. Following this diet you should experience a bowel movement every morning.

Starting at noon until around 3 pm you should eat vegetables. The vegetables will refresh your cells so that your body gets the minerals and nutrients it needs. This will help boost your energy for the day, no coffee needed! From around 3 pm to 8 pm you should eat more solid foods such as nuts, grains and seeds as the day dies down. You shouldn’t really eat after 8 pm because melatonin starts to kick in preparing your body for sleep mode.

Being on this diet on this clock will help your body get on its original pattern, leading you to optimal health. Eating in this pattern is known as “The Laws of Eating in Rhythm” or “Eating Clean While in Rhythm”, there is a whole lot of info about it all over the internet. So it’s very important that we start to eat clean while being in rhythm, I hope I’ve been helpful. Please check back later for more health tips!

Detoxing

Hello Beauties!

Are you enjoying this beautiful Summer day?! Speaking of Summer, did you detox? As the seasons/weather changes it’s important that you cleanse yourself. Haven’t you noticed that when the season changes people get sick? Older people might call it “pneumonia weather.”

Lots of people don’t flush out all the toxins in their system which makes them sick. Detoxing when the seasons change develops immunity because you’re getting rid of all the build up. Detoxing your body is crucial for your well-being and curing of any health problems. As the world changes we need to change too being as though we are part of the universe. Doing this will help you get in tune with the seasons (nature).

Cleansing yourself renews the body and consciousness which rises your energy levels. It strengthens your system for brutal weather in the winter and fall, keeping you from catching the common cold or flu. My favorite way to cleanse myself is to go on a liquid fast for at least 7 days, drinking only water and tea. Once your fast is over it’s important to watch what you eat, the healthier your diet the less sicknesses you come across. I Hope I’ve been helpful, check back later for more health tips!

Smile

Welcome back!

Today I wanna talk about those pearly whites! To be honest with you, my pearly whites haven’t been so bright lately. Seeing all the t.v. advertisements for teeth whitening are tempting but I rather do it the natural, safe way. Teeth whitening can be expensive, cause sensitivity and brittle teeth. I prefer NOT!

To fix my dull smile I started making my own toothpaste, main ingredients are charcoal and coconut oil. Charcoal is very known for whitening teeth, preventing decay and bad breath. Coconut oil is known for fighting bacteria, preventing teeth from rotting and cures cavities! For a refreshing smell I add eucalyptus oil which is known for handling plaque. So whenever your smile seems a little dull I recommend making your own toothpaste.

Oil pulling with coconut oil is very beneficial and can be substituted as a mouth wash. Swishing a tablespoon of coconut oil for 20 mins will help get rid of plaque, fight bacteria, prevent/cure cavities and whiten your teeth! Brushing your teeth with coconut oil and peppermint oil would be just as beneficial if you prefer not to swish for 20 mins. These methods are way safer, a lot of toothpastes and mouth washes on the market have fluoride in them which effects the pineal gland. So lets brighten that smile the healthy way, I hope I’ve been helpful. Check back later for more health tips!

H2O

Hello Beauties!

As I’ve explained throughout all my topics, water is very crucial for the health of your body. “8 glasses of water a day!” you hear constantly. But is that really true? Do you really need to drink 8 glasses of water a day? Well yes, if you’re not drinking the right water. “The right water? What do you mean?” Most water on the market is filled with bacteria, pesticides, chlorine ect.

You can find out what kind of water you’re drinking by getting a water test kit. They come with small strips that will act by changing color from the pollutants in your water. Whether the water you buy says “purified” or “distilled”  it’s most likely no better than the tap water! “So if I can’t get away from polluted water, what can I do?” you may wonder. Well for this situation, shungite stones was the answer for me.

Shungite stones purify and detoxify water in as little as 10-15 mins. Shungite purifies the water so that you only need to drink about 3 cups of water a day. With bottled water they tell you to drink 8 glasses worth because the water is so contaminated that your body wouldn’t get the nutritional value it needs with just three cups. Not only are shungite stones good for purifying water, it’s also good for healing! It detoxifies the body and can relieve stress.

Drinking shungite water boosts and protects my energy, it can definitely help you out on a spiritual path. If you wanna try something other than shungite stones, I recommend using a copper cup. Copper is very much known for killing bacteria. So whether you use shungite stones or a copper cup, the kind of water you use will not matter. I use bottled water and or tap water, rinse off a shungite stone and let it sit in my water bottle or cup for 10 mins before drinking. I hope I’ve been helpful, please check back later for more health tips.

 

Acrylic and gel and polish, oh my!

Welcome back, Beauties!

You’re probably due to get your nails filled and like every girl, you already know what color you want! Never mind the color right now, let’s talk more about that acrylic … “Acrylics protect my nails and keeps them strong” you may think! WRONG! Getting acrylics does the complete opposite. From them constantly shaving your nail away just to lay acrylic on top your nail is as thin as a pencil shaving. Your nails are now depending on the acrylic to grow. Not to mention that with acrylics your nails are inflexible so if you’re not careful you’re more prone to a painful, bloody crack or break in the nail.

While sitting down in the nail salon just imagine you breathing in all the harmful toxins coming from the chemicals they use in their acrylic, gels and polish. Seems like a death trap to me. Not only do acrylics place limitation on you and thin out your nails, they also make you more prone to getting fungus under the acrylic. DISGUSTING RIGHT!? Now onto gel, is gel bad for your nails too? YES, gel is bad for your nails because they cause just as much damage as acrylic.

Gel polish involves UV lighting which can cause cancer  (like everything else in America)  … not only is cancer the worry but they can cause your nails to thin out as well. This can happen while you’re getting the gel filed or shaved off or soaked off with acetone (which dries out your nails). “So if acrylics and gels are bad what about regular nail polish?” Regular nail polishes are filled with toxins that shouldn’t be inhaled, let alone be painted on our nails!

The same goes for nail polish remover, it’s very toxic and can cause harm to the eyes and lungs due to acetone. So it’s best to stay away from it. So what do you do now? You can’t live without your nails painted? Don’t fret, I have a solution!

You can always get non-toxic nail polish online, they are free from all toxic chemicals that could hurt your health. Or you could be more authentic and make your very own nail polish! You can do this by buying clear non-toxic nail polish and adding mica powder. Another way to make nail polish is to mix olive oil and henna powder until it gets pasty. Be very careful with henna because it will stain, use a small brush to paint your nails.

If you want the color to be bold, let it sit for at least 60 mins. Then remove the surplus and you’re done! A good replacement for nail polish remover is vinegar and lime. All you have to do is pour some warm water in a small bowl and soak your nails in it for 15 mins. Then rub vinegar and lime on your nails with a cotton ball until the polish comes off. So Beauty, are you still going to get your nails filled?
