The power of intuition

We are all born with the gift of intuition. The inner knowing that you feel in your gut serves as a guide to direct you towards your destiny.

Each person you meet, obstacle you encounter and choice you make serves it’s purpose by playing it’s role in the evolution of your consciousness. If you are ever stuck, not knowing what direction to take your life that is your answer. You came here for personal growth and to accomplish tasks that are unique to your soul’s progression. There is nothing good or bad, it is all just learning.

So when you don’t know which way to turn, go in the direction of your heart. It will lead you to where you are meant to be.

Spending time in nature grounds your vibration. Do it as often as you can.

The REAL cause of heart disease and premature death!

Ok Paleo friends, I know most of us have done our research and are well aware about the great cholesterol myth! Cholesterol DOES NOT cause heart disease! Back in the 1950s Ancel Keys put forward the lipid hypothesis. The short clip below will fill you in on Keys and his findings.

There are FOUR indicators that cause heart disease and premature death.

  1. Inflammation. Chronic inflammation of cells places stress on your vascular system and eventually leads to disease.
  2. Oxidation. Damage to cells, protein and fatty lipid structures such as hormones will eventually lead to disease.
  3. Sugar. Infringes on efficient functioning of every metabolic process in your body, for various physiological reasons. Excess and constant sugar consumption will eventually lead to disease.
  4. Stress. This response to internal and external stressors raises stress hormones in turn causing cells to age and this process feeds almost any form of infirmity. Constant, elevated stress will eventually lead to disease and can be the biggest killer of the lot.

How can you eliminate your risk factors for heart disease and other metabolic diseases?

Eat, live and breath Paleo!

Paleo is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. Paleo eating is extensive and there is no limit to how many recipes you can devise or how delicious your food can taste. Food that was present 10,000 years ago and food that is IN SEASON is what you should be eating! Why? Because it is embedded in your DNA. Our bodies evolved on this food and so making such choices will enable optimum gene expression. An abundance of organic fats, vegetables, fruits, animal protein and water should be the only thing on your menu.

A little word on stress…Our ancestors knew how to prevent stress and reduce it before it became a problem. This is because they knew that living in a stressful state was not advantageous for survival, staying alive and being a valuable member of any tribe. In this modern day world it is important to do things daily to reduce stress.

  • Practise yoga, Pilates and stretch everyday.
  • Meditate daily.
  • Do the things you love. Always make time to fulfil your interests and passions.
  • Be true to yourself. Only make choices that resonate with your core values and make you truly happy.
  • Speak up. Let others know how you are feeling. Don’t bottle your emotions.
  • Nurture close relationships with family and friends. They are your support network and will be there for you to turn to when you are stressed and need help.
  • Practice gratitude daily. At the end of each day write a list of everything you are grateful for. This simple exercise will also help attract abundance and positivity in your life. Do it before you go to bed and you will fall asleep feeling peaceful and optimistic about the future.

So there you have it. Now you know the REAL causes of heart disease and premature death. Tell everyone you know, family and friends. Go buy some organic butter and organic coconut oil right now and put it on your vegetables and meat, because fats are essential for the absorption of vitamin A,D,E and K AND for healthy cell structure and hormone production. Cholesterol is an AMAZING thing. It is a powerful antioxidant in the body and vital for the integrity of every cell in the body. I love cholesterol and I am grateful for it’s anti-oxidative, protective qualities. I wouldn’t be alive without it.

Tip of the day

If you’re like me, you are not drawn to Western Medicine. The holistic approach to health is much more appropriate to you because you believe in treating the cause, not just the symptom.

Natural remedies to get back to health are,

  • 1 Teaspoon of raw organic apple cider vinegar 3 times a day in water.
  • Ginger tea to heal inflammation. Thinly slice fresh ginger, bring to the boil then simmer for 10-15minutes.
  • Raw organic coconut oil to treat nearly everything you can think of!
  • Raw lemon for antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers.
  • Meditation with crystals in sunlight. If you’re unsure of which crystal to choose, go with clear quartz. If a certain part of your body is affected, choose crystals that correlate to the appropriate charka. The combination of mediation, crystals and sunlight will raise your vibration and strengthen your aura, assisting your healing.
  • Practise positive affirmations. Start affirming ‘I deserve excellent health and I accept this now’ and ‘I lovingly release all fears and accept optimum health’ or ‘My body is always working towards optimum health’.
  • Sleep and rest. Take time off work and from the outside world. Turn off your phone and relax for a day or so. Your health and well-being is worth it.
