You have been trying so hard to healโ€ฆ

You have been trying so hard to heal….

Trust me, I know!  All those special plans, books, diets, supplements, herbs, meditation, paying attention to your mindset, getting movement...I know you have been working on healing for a long time.

It honestly sucks to have worked so much and have so little to celebrate about the outcomes!  Especially when you see other people saying it was just this “one” shift that did all the work.

I have a secret for you, it was never just one shift.

I have followed so many “gurus” over the years, watching their FB posts, reading their emails, and guess what...not one time was that “one” shift they sell the thing that healed them, and another truth...many of them aren’t really healed at all.

Reality is, there has never been just “one” thing wrong with our system when it presents us with symptoms...and symptoms are the result of maladaptation in body self regulation that has likely gone...

Are you standing in your own way?

lifeforce mindset May 30, 2021

Are you standing in your own way? 

It's a really important question, especially when it comes to your healing.

We stand in our own way by thinking that we just need to try one more restrictive diet, cut out five more foods or find the perfect blend of supplements, adaptogens, or herbs.  We do it by chasing that one thing...hormones, gut, mold, EBV, food allergies and more.

We do it by figuring it is just our emotions, our mind, our energetic pathways, or our past and trying to isolate down to the ONE event, issue or problem we have to solve.  Now, I get it, wanting it to be ONE thing, it seems easier, but, truth is, it has never been and will never be just ONE part of you that is exhausted, it is all of you and it is real

Operating this way creates a blockage in our healing because it takes us out of association with our body as a whole, tends to isolate us into our head and cuts us off from what our body and our real emotional state is going through.

To heal, it is...

mindset May 23, 2021


Women tell me every day, I feel STUCK.
Stuck in my body
Stuck in my life
Stuck in pain
Stuck in Anger
Stuck in Sadness

Some think that stuckness is mental, that if they could shift their beliefs, the stuckness would disappear, others think it is situational, if they could just take a bit more time off, have a different job, move houses, change locations...it would stop.

But stuckness is more tangible than we realize, that sense of being trapped, immobile, it isn’t just a psychological phenomenon, it is a literal physiological state.  In fact, I have never found someone who was stuck in a belief or an emotional pattern whose body hadn’t followed that lead and become stuck too.  

In the body, this is different, stuckness causes literal congealment, thickening of the blood, deposition of plaque on arteries, fibroids, cellulite, joint pain, headaches, digestive issues, brain fog, anxiety, and immune dysfunction.  But these things don’t unwind...

Stop Exercising

lifeforce mindset May 16, 2021

Stop Exercising.

You may be thinking, this is insane, I won’t stop exercising, that is a recipe for disaster.

But, hear me out.

Exercise carries with it an implied definition, as in movement we do for the purpose of being some way different.  Sometimes it is stronger, sometimes it is to run farther, sometimes to be more agile, and many times to lose weight.  Meaning, exercise is our replacement for the natural human instinct to move.

We never had exercise until modern civilization, there wasn’t a need, we never forgot to move, or forgot to walk or use our body.  Now, we count steps.

The question is: Is there a difference?

Yes! A dramatic one! Exercise done on obligation is like any other chore, we do it, but we don’t love it, and our body knows the difference.  Think of the last time you went dancing with good friends or played at the beach with your kids, that was exercise, but did you experience it as such? Not likely, because you weren't...

Why won’t you listen to me?
Ever had that conversation with your body?

Maybe you haven’t had it overtly, but if you are like me, you have had it...in the form of food, in the form of exercise, even in the form of meditation...can’t count the number of times, I have spoken with others about why they weren’t feeling peaceful after they had been dedicated to meditation daily for months.

We think, my body should listen, look at all the “good” things I am doing for it
My body should have responded more by now
My body should have changed more by  now
My body needs to step it up

I know you have said it, I can say this with confidence, because I lived most of my life there…

THINKING that because I was DOING the “right” things my body should respond with change to reflect what I wanted.

Do you see the disconnect? THINKING…

Except that our biology doesn’t respond well to thinking...it is more of an emotional action...

Would you talk to a child like you talk to you?

How many of you secretly wish your body would just behave?

Do you think about how tired you are and just think...this isn’t right, come on! 
Do you think about your weight and think...what’s wrong with me?
Do you try to separate from your body...distracting yourself with anything you can find just so you don’t have to be in it?

And yet, how many of you are raising kids, have raised kids or are an auntie or special inspiration to a child?

Would you ever let them talk to their body the way you talk to yours?
Would you tell your kids that their fatigue just doesn’t warrant solving?
Would you tell them to push past the pain? Suck it up?
Would you tell them they are the flaw when they are worried about their weight?
Would you put them on super restrictive diets and put them down when they didn’t succeed?
Would you send them to the gym or to enroll in a Beachbody program despite pain, fatigue and depression?
I ask because this is what I see...

Are you making it worse?

diet mindset supplements Apr 26, 2021

Those Supplements you keep buying, the special herb formulas for “people just like you”, even the Thyroid meds you might have been given aren’t what your body really needs.


So much of the health industry isn't looking at what is really happening in people’s bodies, not considering if the body can even use nutrients, not considering if the organs are actually too tired, burdened and weak to respond to those herbs, not considering if there is enough support in the cell and system to do much at all with hormonal messages, and yet, that is the major dogma.


I know you are concerned about your health, wondering why your body holds so much inflammation, why it is so tired, why your sleep, mood, digestion, skin, libido and mind have been impacted when for the most part everyone says there isn’t anything big to give attention to.


I know how you have been lured by FB posts for the super greens, the diet teas, the mushroom powders and more,...

Are You Doing Fats Wrong?

diet Apr 19, 2021

Fats are a big topic in health and healing, and much of what is out there isn’t great, reality is, we need fat, in particular saturated fat, but not in massive amounts like some would claim, and running our body on fat is a rather perilous path.


First, you use saturated fats and cholesterol to make your hormones, so you need them in your diet in order to maintain hormonal function.  However, if your metabolic furnace is running slow, you cannot put them to use very easily, and consequently, adopting a high fat diet with cells stuck in slow motion is a recipe for disaster.  


If we add to this the reality that most of the fat consumed by Americans is in the form of PUFA oils like sunflower, safflower, soy (soy oil is the most widely used oil in the restaurant industry) and canola.  In 2016 nearly 80% of the fat in American diets was from these fats.


Many facing exhaustion and hormonal issues read that switching to a diet high in butter,...

Alarm signals

self-healing supplements Apr 12, 2021

Those alarm signals from your body that are keeping your cells stuck in survival mode, yes, the ones you aren’t even conscious of any more because they have been going on for 10 plus years, they are driving the exhaustion and hormonal melt down you feel.


I have bad news for you, diet and supplements aren't enough to turn those off, and the wrong pairings of food and supplements will make them worse.  See, those signals are for survival, literally, there is a part of your system which believes it is doing the essential job of letting you survive.  Which means, to get it to turn off, you are going to have to let those cells and systems know it is ok.


Another bit of truth, taking away the stress isn’t enough.  I can’t tell you the number of women I Have worked with who had quit their job, or moved, or left the toxic relationship or finally switched careers only to find it didn’t make them feel better.


Why??? Because that...

Are you an animal?

diet self-healing Apr 05, 2021

I watched a pair of ducks fly over my house yesterday, they were mere feet apart, headed together to their next destination and I wondered...how do they tell each other where they want to go? 

Is it a particular quack or the way they bend their wing or is it even more subtle than that...body communication or even mental communication?

It got me thinking about animals, how they sleep when they need sleep or eat when they need to eat, how they don’t obsess over food, or how they know what plants will serve them or what foods are ideal right now.

Their body communication and awareness is awesome, beyond awesome, never hung up on little stuff that in the end doesn’t matter.

Is it any wonder then that we rarely see sick animals in the wild? Think about it, you don’t see them hardly ever.

Did you know that when bears wake up, one of the things they do is search out OSHA or bear root and eat it because it is anti-parasitic and will cleanse their body after being in a...
