Yes, I know it's still January and most the time we have to (or at least are strongly advised to leave our snow boots on, there sometimes comes a break in weather and those days, especially, are the days you get out in your bare feet!
Yesterday was one of those days for me. It was 45 degrees here and the snow has mostly melted (my son had to take him little shovel to the middle of the yard where there was a small patch of snow to shovel 😊).
We played outside for a bit. Walked along the stream in my bare feet. Feel it. Close your eyes. Feel the warmth of the sun on your face.
If you have no option for grass.. Feel the concrete! The deck, the bark. Just get out and connect. Ground.
Today is the Capricorn New Moon (ill be posting a ritual today) and guess what?! It's all about Grounding!!!
Get out there today and tag me in your pictures! 🌝🌾

Who am I following today? I choose to support this awesome local company! Kristen Bowen from Living the Good Life Naturally has taught me so much and will continue to do so. What I love about her is she, like me, is a researcher! And keeps up to date. Very important. There is a difference between "following the trends" and "keeping current" and because of this I know I can always trust her. Thanks Kristen and Team Goodlife! @livingthegoodlifenaturally

Today's tip and topic is one of my favorite! Bone Broth! Or "Nature's Multivitamin"
Ever wonder why chicken soup is considered "good for the soul" or the first thing your mother, grandmother or even Dr grabs for when sick (especially this time of season) ?! Because it truly nourishes from the brain to your gut, muscles to ligaments!!
This nutrient dense, easy to digest, full of favor, Immune boosting drink is just the remedy you're looking for if you want to treat:
Leaky gut syndrome
Improve joint health
Boost immune system
Eliminate food allergies and intolerances
Improve skin tone, elasticity, and health
Bone broth is made by simmering all the bones and ligaments from chicken, beef, lamb, etc. (I feel so efficient when I can find a way to use everything!) and in doing so releasing healing compounds like collagen, trace minerals, gelatin, amino acids. Minerals and vitamins that are easy to digest such as calcium, Magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, Sulphur and those excellent (but sometimes $$) for inflammation and arthritis like glucosamine!
Let's take a look at just TWO of the wonderful components - Gelatin and Collagen.
Gelatin - helps cushion bones and "glide" rather than cause friction with each other. Restores the strength of the guts lining
Collagen - helps restore cartilage, elastin (hello, no cellulite!), IBS and Crohns
Today we are exposed to so many toxins, pesticides, GMO, and chemicals. Bone broth helps aid in your body's natural detoxification processes with potassium and glycine which support liver detox
How can I get this wonderful remedy?!? You can make it yourself! Overwhelming?? You CAN buy it, just make sure it's organic, and whole! (Lee's carries one I like)
Tips - I do like to add veggies to mine for more flavor and more nutrients! I suggest drinking (or cooking with, etc) 8oz 1-2 times a day (8oz isn't that much!) Remember this is perfect for everyone! What a great way to get amazing nutrients into your kids without having to get a vitamin down them!

Today's tip and topic is on the mighty Vagus Nerve!
What is it: part of the parasympathetic nervous system. The "rest & digest" system. It reaches from the brain to the gut, hitting the heart, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, kidney, spleen, lungs neck, ears, tongue and sex organs.
What can an imbalance show: (although many of these symptoms can be caused by other imbalances, the VN can very likely be the cause, especially if you've "tried everything!" and have still found no relief) weight gain, IBS, depression, chronic fatigue, high or low heart rate, heart burn, fainting and inflammation to name a few.
What does the VN affect:
Brain- helps control anxiety & depression
Heart- controls heart rate and BP, lowers risk of heart disease
Liver & Pancreas- helps control and balances blood glucose
Gallbladder- helps release bile = getting toxins out and break down fat
Kidneys- promotes general kidney function by increasing blood flow and lower BP
Spleen- decreases inflammation
Sex organs- increase infertility and orgasms
Tongue - helps control taste and saliva
Eyes - tears
Did you know? : satiety and relaxation feeling after a meal is activation of the VN!
Do you ever cough when cleaning your ears, plucking or tickle ears? Yep VN!
And it also influences the release of Oxytocin!! 😁
So how can you stimulate the VN? : there are many ways but here are my favorites.
Coffee enema - "sprints for your VN"
Coughing or tensing your stomach muscles (which makes laughing even better!)
Yoga and exercise
Positive social relationships
Cold showers and air
Trauma can cause an imbalance but it may even be genetic! "selfdecode" Genome testing from #23andme can help. SNP (rs6330) is associated with low vagal activity and high anxiety.

This comes from our friends @learningherbs and makes a very easy herb to grow and great to have for 1st aid! - Yarrow (Achillea millefolium) helps stop bleeding, relieves pain, disinfects wounds, promotes tissue repair, and reduces inflammation. Fresh yarrow leaves are best for wound healing, but you can put dried, powdered leaves right on the cut or make a compress, soaking a cloth in yarrow tea and laying it on the wound.

Today is Week 1 of 4 of getting your January goal done!
Assignment: getting a container for your 72 hr kit. That's it! Just get something - a duffel bag, suitcase, backpack, etc. I got mine at the DI. They have a ton! You do NOT need something brand new. This will be sitting in your basement, car, closet until you need it. Really, you don't need anything expensive. Get as many as you'd like (obvs if you have a large family you'll want more than one... Use your best judgment:D)
Now go, get to it! 😊 #72hrkit #emergency #preparedness #storage
Today's second hashtag is one that I'll be doing every Friday. We need to recognize the beautiful people around us who help is to grow and become better so that is why I choose to highlight my amazing friend Mally @therevivalkit! Learn more about oils, Zoning, and empowerment Go check her out!
Hello! I'm so excited that you have stopped by. That tells me that you are ready for a new way of life and I couldn't be more happy that you listened to that voice that got you here!
