I have suffered with Fibromyalgia for over a decade and have tried to manage it with traditional prescriptions. However in the end, it just made it worse and left me with some pretty sever side effects. #cymbaltaruinedmylife I spent over 8.5 months confined to a lazy boy going through withdrawals from the very expensive drug that was supposed to be the cure all. I am still plagued with side effects from this drug … the worst being brain zaps. ( this feels like someone has hooked a car battery to your brain) 

It became my mission to find a natural way to heal my body and alleviate some of the horrendous symptoms that accompany Fibromyalgia.

Over the summer and in to the beginning of fall, I was able to get some major relief from my chronic illness. I started seeing a functional doctor a couple of hours away from me and I was fortunate enough to be able to get a few treatments of a procedure called Ozone Blood Therapy. The only downfall really was the cost associated with it. And for this reason, I had to stop my treatments. It is not covered by any health care coverage, which I don’t understand they will cover a chemical drug that is more expensive but will not cover this natural treatment that actually works. It was actually pretty amazing how quickly it was healing me. ( @ladygaga I wish I had your bank account because I would be getting these treatments weekly! You should give it a go!) I also had to get expensive dental surgery during this time and healed a month ahead of schedule and I believe it was because of this treatment and the use of cannabis. Each visit to see the functional doctor would typically cost us approximately $500 , and more if we had to see the doctor who billed at $45 every 5 mins. Plus the cost of any supplements that he deemed necessary. All I can tell you is if you have the means and are not squeamish about IV drips then you really must try this treatment. I feel like I was finally on the road to healing and cannot wait until I am able to get treatments again.

How To Detox & Give Your Body The Nutrition It Needs

How To Detox & Give Your Body The Nutrition It Needs

If you are anything like me then you want easy ways to get your nutrition.

I will confess … I like convenience (gasp!)

I am also one of those people that would rather have a smoothie over a meal.

Let’s be honest though, a majority of the things that are supposed to be good for you taste awful!

So I am pretty happy to share with you the ones that I DID find that are absolutely delicious & nutritious!

Part of the Products in this post were sponsored and part purchased with my own money. My opinion is always my own regardless.

I have tried so many different health products over the years and that includes protein powders and let me tell you, I disliked most of them! They all seemed to have that telltale chalky protein powder taste.

This past year I have had a lucky streak in finding some really tasty ones. Protein powders that honestly feel like you are drinking a sinful Milkshake!

 

1. Ideal Shape has so many scrumptious flavors! And there are still a number of them I want to try. Out of all of my recommendations, this is the one that has the most flavor choices. I counted 15 different flavors! I have tasted 3 of the flavors Chocolate Peanut Butter (think Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups) Cookies & Cream (tastes just like an Oreo Blizzard) and Salted Caramel. All 3 were so good that I really couldn’t even pick a favorite! I love that you can buy bundles to save money and the next flavors I want to try are Eggnog, Orange Cream, and Chocolate Coconut. Mmmmmm…. They also carry some other tasty looking products that are good for you.

#2 Magnum Quattro –  I tried the same 3 flavors and they were equally as delicious! I purchased mine at Popeye’s along with some greens which I will talk about later.

Out of all the Protein powders, I have tried this one has the highest protein content at 30g of Protein per serving.

MAGNUM QUATTRO™ IS AN EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR A PROTEIN SUPPLEMENT BECAUSE
High Quality Ingredients
It has only Isolate proteins (the highest quality and form of protein – supporting digestion, absorption, and results)*
It has 4 different sources of Isolate protein for timed digestion*
It has added CLA and Flaxseed for essential fatty acids and protein assimilation*
There is more protein per scoop than almost any product available today*
It will support sustained energy throughout the day**
It will aid in achieving leaner, denser muscles*
It supports an increase in your metabolic rate*

#3 Organifi – It truly is the Best Tasting Plant Based Complete Protein Drinks! All of the products from Organifi are chock full of good for you ingredients that also benefit your health in others ways. For example, the protein powder contains digestive enzymes, MCT’s & Minerals. It is also Gluten Free, Non-GMO. Soy Free, Dairy Free & Vegan.

It comes in 2nd for protein content at 20g but I feel that the other added ingredients give it an edge.  I LOVE that their products combine so many beneficial ingredients into one product.

#4 – Quest Protein – This protein weighs in at 20g of protein and is Gluten & Soy Free. I had picked up 3 sample packs at Popeyes and got Vanilla, Chocolate & Cinnamon Crunch. Again all 3 were delish but the Cinnamon Crunch reminded me of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and was one of the favorites with my family!.

#5 – Cor-Performance Whey – My son purchased this brand and I gave it a taste test. I tried the Strawberry Milkshake and it reminded me of Strawberry Nesquick. It has 24 grams of protein, is Gluten Free and contains 5.25 g of naturally occurring BCAA’s.  This protein powder is made more for bodybuilders and was purchased from bodybuilders.com.

When it comes to detoxing I am a huge advocate of juicing, juicing powders & greens. Much like the protein powder though, finding one that I could tolerate was difficult (most were way too bitter).

The ones that I do recommend and taste good even just with water are  Progressive VegeGreens  and all of the juice powders from Organifi.

I have tried all of the flavors from Progressive and my favorite hands down is the Pineapple Coconut. It was our go-to for several months. I would mix either with orange juice or in a smoothie.

Organifi has 2 amazing juicing powders that can be used alone or together.

Both are chock full of good for you ingredients, including adaptogens (these help your body adapt to stress). While I won’t go into listing the ingredients and their benefits, they are too numerous to mention. You can read all about it on their website.  In all honesty so far in my search, Organifi carries the best all-around products. I used to buy a lot of these ingredients at the local health store and let me tell you it was really starting to add up and I didn’t even have them all!

I love that I can have them all in one convenient powder. The adaptogens are really important to me as they are known to decrease anxiety, along with the detoxing properties. Another benefit of these nutritious powders is that they give increased natural energy. They taste great mixed just with water but even better in a juice or smoothie.

Self Improvement – Do You Have What You Need To Succeed ?

Self Improvement – Do You Have What You Need To Succeed ?

To say that this past year has been a year of great growth, would be a bit of an understatement!

Launching several online business ventures while coping with Fibromyalgia & Anxiety has been a great learning and growth experience for me.

So what is it exactly that has changed? That in itself is a bit of a loaded question.

I was struggling is so many areas of my life … my health was rapidly on the decline, I was in pain, stressed and feeling so overwhelmed with trying to find time to do everything that I wanted to do. Basically, I was spending way too much time and energy on the negative aspects of my life rather than focusing on the good and this was the first place I needed to make a change.

]My mindset was the first thing that needed to change and I spent and still spend a lot of time making sure that I take the time that I deserve on myself.

What do I mean by that? Well, I had to learn to allow myself to take care of “me” and realize that I deserved it just as much as anyone else. The law of attraction is a very powerful thing.

I watched videos from Motivational Speakers, listened to meditation programs and Binaural Beats. 

I have found that I thrive on continuous learning! 

I am constantly taking new courses to further my skill set & knowledge base, which also allows me to expand on the ways I am able to help others.
 A couple of places I highly recommend are MindValley Academy & Udemy.

Both sites have courses taught by the best in their fields!

Two of my favorite Female powerhouses are Marissa Peer & Christie Marie Sheldon and they both have a FREE course available.  I recommend starting with these and then moving forward with some of the paid options.

Udemy has such a vast selection of courses from Personal Development, Life Coaching, FinancesMeditation, Mindfulness & so much more.

So much valuable knowledge at your fingertips.

I also learned so much about health, wellness & nutrition, which we will talk about in another post. I have learned to focus on living a balanced and purposeful life and have really been working on decluttering, budgeting, credit repair and becoming self-sufficient.

There are certain products I swear by but am always open to testing out new natural methods of treating my pain and inflammation.
