Helping You Create Your Extraordinary Life

I'm Writing A Book!

It’s been awhile since I wrote a blog post, and I should really be packing for our family’s two-week trip to The Netherlands, but I’m just too excited about my next project. Life has been full of ups and downs for our family the past year or so, and it’s inspired me to write a book filled with all the health knowledge I’ve expanded on and learned over that time. But wait - I think I may be getting ahead of myself, here. Let me explain how I got to this place in the first place.

The Right Way to Detox

Maintaining your physical, mental, and emotional energy is crucial to successfully pursuing your dreams. If you've been experiencing sluggishness in any of these areas, this post is for you. Often, women are enticed to find the best detox method to boost their energy, only to stumble upon questionable detox diets or "cleansing teas" that leave them feeling physically depleted and gross.

To detoxify and enhance your energy levels effectively, it's essential to steer clear of fads. Instead, focus on cleansing your body, mind, and environment so that you can feel your absolute best and make progress towards your dreams each day. Trust me, this approach is far superior to subjecting yourself to a week of cayenne pepper and lemon juice!

Your Body's Natural Detoxification Process
