Clean Eating

Cucumber Pear Juice

If a hot August afternoon has overheated you, and withered your strength, cool off with a refreshing glass of Cucumber Pear Juice.  It will cool and clean the digestive tract, and help pacify fiery digestive issues like heartburn or acid indigestion, and rejuvenate you. Pears are ripe and ready to be enjoyed in August. Their demulcent qualities soothe and coat an inflamed digestive tract. A tall glass of this fresh juice will freshen the mind too, adding a splash of cool to a heated mood.

Mercury Goes Direct today!

Yay!  We survived the last three weeks of Mercury being retrograde.  Mercury helps to shake up our unhealthy attachments or toxic relationships.  We all have them i.e. money, materialism, draining relationships, social media overload etc so nows the time to let it all go.  What ever Mercury brought out and put in front of you the past three weeks, learn from these lessons so that you don’t repeat them again when Mercury goes retrograde again on Oct. 31!

If not now, when?

Over Exercising?

We all know how important it is to get up and move as exercise helps to keep “Issues out of our Tissues” but some of us take it too far.

The “no pain, no gain” that has been drilled into the fitness world is counterproductive. If you exercise until you’re worn out, it takes longer to recuperate.

Thought the lens of Ayurveda one should exercise between 1/2 to 3/4 of our capacity and gradually that capacity will increase. Always make sure you have stop before you do not have energy left to recover. Recovery is where the healing begins. Slow and steady wins the race against “Issues in our Tissues”
