GOT A BRICK IN YOUR TUMMY?

teamidetox88

 

If you’re like me and love to enjoy a bit of indulging during the holidaze, then join me for the TeaMi Blends 30 day detox program. After Thanksgiving, I felt like I had a brick sitting in my stomach. How about you? I felt bloated, lethargic and heavy. You look down and see nothing but a poochie belly. I cursed at my skinny jeans and opted for stretchy leggings. Not pretty, folks. A detox was exactly what I needed. If you have been with me here on SOS for some time then you know I’m a firm believer in doing a detox/ cleanse a few times a year. The last cleanse I did was great, but it was so much work to steep the pot of tea and take all these droppers. It was time consuming and I wanted to quit after the 3rd day. I felt like I couldn’t go far from the house! TeaMi has a great travel tumbler so you can take your tea with you.

After doing some research, I found Teami and read through all the positive reviews. Here we are! I am only on day 2 and already feeling lighter. My energy increased and the bloat has started to go down. Hallelujah! I’m looking forward to saying hello to my favorite skinny jeans in a week or so.

Get Your Sassy (and sanity) Back [Candid Video]

etre-belle-spa-9196

I am thrilled to report that after just 6 weeks of starting the BioTe bio-identical hormone replacement with Heather Newman at Etre Belle

I’ve got my sassy back!

 

Since my early 30’s, I have suffered from debilitating PMS. Let’s just say you did not want to come anywhere near my direction when I was PMS’ing! I was like the wicked witch of the west and would unleash my flying monkeys on anyone who crossed me.  Luckily, for my friends and family I usually tried to hole up that week and became very antisocial. Maybe I just didn’t want anyone to meet the witch in me. I got on a birth control pill designed for PMDD and that didn’t help much so I got on an anti-depressant. I was also going through a spiritual healing at the time so add that to out of whack hormones and I was just a hot mess.  I wish I had known to get my hormone levels checked way back then! We never think that peri-menopausal symptoms can start that young, BUT –THEY DO SISTAS!

It’s my mission to share anything I’ve learned that could make your journey better. If you are suffering from horrible PMS, migraines, foggy brain, mood swings, poor sleep, sluggish energy and low libido please go get your hormones checked. Make sure you go to a functional medical practitioner specializing in bioidentical hormones who will run an extensive bloodwork panel.

To give you an idea of why I was so exhausted, my testosterone level for my age and weight should have been at a 75 and I was -3. After much research, I just knew I had to try the testosterone pellets. They are implanted into a small incision in your upper bootie so there’s a slow release into your system over 3-4 months. It’s a super simple and pain free procedure.

biote-image-2

My thyroid and progesterone levels were also extremely low so I’m taking a natural progesterone pill and NatureThroid. Strangely, my Vitamin D level was also very low so I’m taking a sublingual D3 supplement. I was taking Vitamin D3 daily, but obviously I wasn’t taking the proper dose. That was a wake up call because although I’m religious about taking my vitamins daily it doesn’t mean I’m getting enough.

I’m going tomorrow to get my bloodwork checked again to see exactly how my all my levels are doing. It’s vital to keep up with your bloodwork to ensure you are getting the proper amount of hormones.

LADIES, please make your health a priority! We shouldn’t be drudging through life with no energy and depressed half the month. Seriously, I would feel awful the week before my period AND the week of my period so that is half of my life.  That simply just sucked.

DON’T WAIT!

Go get your sassy & sanity back!

Love Your Spiritual Spitfire,

Tiff

 

GINGER: One Ingredient = Many Benefits! By Guest Blogger Stacey Marshall

ginger

In this article, I’m going to share with you some information about a powerful, nutritional herb and compound, ginger.

Ginger is extremely versatile in its interaction inside the human body:

  1. It is proven to be an extremely potent pain reliever than box-standard pain killers
  2. Studies have shown it to be more effective at improving digestion than over-the-counter digestive medications
  3. It’s been proven to reduce symptoms of nausea

Ginger root has been used for thousands of years for its health benefits. As I mentioned earlier, one of the main benefits of consuming ginger is that it reduces inflammation.

A recent medical study, published out of Denmark, and published in the Journal of Arthritis, found that:

If you consume just a small amount of ginger, it is more effective at reducing your pain symptoms and inflammation than pain killers given by general practitioners today.

So again, if you’re trying to reduce pain and inflammation, ginger is more effective than many medications, according to the Journal of Arthritis.

Ginger is also very effective in improving the digestive function. If an individual suffers from some kind of inflammation in the intestines, this could well be a warning sign of GI inflammation. Things like eczema, acne, psoriasis, or certain types of skin blemishes are a warning sign, that you probably have inflammation in your digestive tract. Ginger is a great way of reducing these symptoms.

Not only has ginger proven to reduce inflammation, it also supports digestive health. Another incredible thing about ginger is that it aids digestion due to its prebiotics content. It contains a specific type of fiber, which causes good bacteria to grow in that area.

For all the dieters out there, a healthy digestive system aids weight loss, which is another benefit of using this ingredient.

Last but not least, ginger is very effective at reducing symptoms of nausea. So, if you’re ever going to be flying in an airplane, or let’s say, going on a boat all day, and you get sea sick, taking ginger is one of the best things you can possibly do.

You can rub a small amount of ginger essential oil behind your ear. One of the things physicians advise their patients over the years who’ve had arthritis, and diabetes, and other symptoms of inflammation, is to drink ginger tea.

Ginger-tea

It’s very easy to make:

  1. Boil green tea
  2. Slice up ginger root
  3. Boil ginger root for 30 minutes (it releases anti-inflammatory compounds)

Try just drinking ginger green tea throughout the entire week.

Alternatively, break off a piece of ginger, or throw it in a smoothie. Ginger can be great with blueberries and peaches because it adds some really good flavor.

Remember all the benefits from ginger:

  1. It is powerful at reducing inflammation
  2. Can reduce symptoms of nausea
  3. Supports digestion
  4. Contains prebiotics

Get more of this super herb ginger in your diet. Medical science proves it, and history proves it, so how much more persuading do you really need?

Bright Eyed & Bushy Tailed for the HoliDAZE

brighteyed_bushytailed

Because I work in front of the camera and have to look bright-eyed at a moments notice, I have found the following tips give me an instant well-rested look even after a night of little sleep, high sodium meals, sugary treats and one glass of wine too many!  On top of that, I have hereditary dark circles and puffy eyes.  The use of heaters and all the nasal issues we deal with during the winter can add to the puffy eye problem as well.  The combination of the following tips will give you the appearance of being bright eyed and bushy tailed and as if you slept a full 8 hours, I promise!

1. HYDRATE: Drink a large glass of water with juice from half a lemon. This aids in relieving a puffy face and cleanses the body of toxins. Also, helps keep your belly flatter for that sassy cocktail dress. (I actually down a big glass of lemon water first thing EVERY a.m.)

lemon-water01

2. NATURAL DIURETIC: Puffiness is due to a build up of fluid under the eye.  Eat a bowl a strawberries to flush out water retention.  They are loaded with calcium, potassium and arginine which have diuretic properties.

3. TEA BAGS: Chill used tea bags in the fridge and apply to eyes for 10 minutes to reduce swelling. Cold spoons work as well, but aren’t as comfortable.

4.1.1
4. UNDER EYE CREAM WITH CAFFEINE:  Look for eye creams and serums with caffeine which shrinks fluid buildup under the eye. I use Garnier anti-dark circle rollerball with tint on days my eyes are extra dark and puffy. The caffeine plus the rollerball help de-puff the under eye area super quick.

5. EGG WHITE MASK: Using approximately 1 teaspoon of an egg white as a facial mask will tighten the skin and shrink swelling and pore size. Wakes up your skin and gives you an instant glow. Make sure to do this mask the day of an important event where lots of photos will be taken! Your skin will be glowing and smooth.

6. HIGHLIGHTER IN CORNER OF EYES: Adding a brightening white, beige or peach eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye adds a youthful look and widens the appearance of the eyes giving a more rested look.

7. VISINE: A ‘must do’ to whitens the eyes.

visine

9. ADD CUCUMBERS TO EVERY MEAL. (Great to do year round, not just the holidays!) Cucumbers contain silica, an ingredient which boosts moisture and elasticity to the skin. It’s awesome for hydrating dry skin and hair during winter. I’ve been eating a Persian cucumber before bed the past few months and can see a big difference in my skin when I wake up. Thanks to my sister, esthetician and wellness ambassador Natalie Bolton for the tip!

10. RAISE YOUR HEART RATE: Doing 50 jumping jacks or taking a brisk 15-20 minute walk instantly increases the circulation in the body which adds a flush to the cheeks helping you look and feel more awake.

jacks-400x400

Plus, if you can get in a few 15 minute power naps here and there during the holidays it will help you get through all the activities! Make sure to drink a protein shake or protein-rich snack like tuna fish before heading to a cocktail party. Protein digests slower giving you a “full” feeling longer and will keep you from lapping around the snack table one too many times.

I no longer suffer from depression, anxiety, body pains and allergies.

This wasn’t my reality two years ago. I was angry, depressed and very overweight!  My diet plan changed my life and I am now eager to help many people solve their health issues by changing their diet. If you are suffering from obesity, low body weight, allergies, depression/anxiety or any other ailments, my diet plan is the answer you have been looking for! I am committing myself to you! Only thing I ask from you is to be 100% committed to your health and fitness. Are you willing to take the challenge? If YES, please proceed to the diet plan below.

Below you will find a sample diet plan and a healthy food list.  You have to commit to eating 5 small meals a day (eat every 3 hours), stay away from gluten laden carbohydrates (barley, wheat, rye, white flour products), high glycemic sugars ( agave, high fructose corn syrup, honey, evaporated cane juice ), soy, milk products, alcohol and processed foods. We are cutting these foods out because they have been found to cause: depression and anxiety, bloating and gas, inflammation, fatigue, headaches, aching joints, weight gain, poor concentration and mood swings.  These foods also cause cancer, liver issues, high blood pressure and many other health ailments. You will also have to commit to drinking 8-12  8 oz glasses of water per day, working out 5 times per week and taking a daily multivitamin. I recommend eating organic and non GMO products.

You will learn how to properly combine your foods to stabilize your mood and keep your blood sugar balanced.

TOP 5 KITCHEN ITEMS FOR EVERY SKIN TYPE By Guest Blogger- Asia DeMarcos aka BEAUTASIA

Hi Superhero’s in-training!

I’ve had a few clients text me today with skincare emergencies. One wanted a hydrating mask, the other had just burned herself. So I got to thinking. Why not blog about this to share with you. Here are my top 5 kitchen collaborators for every skin condition.

AVOCADO-hass

1. Avocados- Skin Types: Dry, dehydrated, red, inflamed or rosasea. I love having plenty of these on hand. They contain a rich natural oil that’s great to condition your skin and hair. It also contains niacin, which has been great for inflammation. Perfect for rosacea. Mash it up and put it on you face for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water. Beautasia note: Rinse off in kitchen sink where there’s a garbage disposal. 

honey

2. Honey- Skin Types: Dry, dehydrated, Sun Damaged, Acne, Aging. This sweet tea compadre is also good for dry skin. It’s a humectant. Which means it will draw moisture into the skin. This amber colored delight is also an anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial so its also perfect for aging and acneic skin types. Take 1 tablespoon of honey and apply to face. Leave on 15-20 minutes. Rinse with luke warm water.

lemon_3228

3. LemonSkin Types: Oily, Acneic, Sun Damaged, Non Sensitive. This amazing liquid is a natural antiseptic and contains natural acids that will exfoliate the face.  These acids will also naturally brighten sun damaged skin. It can be a little drying, so don’t use it if you have super sensitive skin. The acid and antiseptic will also kill those zits! Apply directly from the fruit of squeeze in a bowl and apply with cotton ball or round leave on skin. Beautasia note: Best to sleep on face overnight.

apple-cider-vinegar-1

4. Apple Cider VinegarSkin Types: Oily, Enlarged Pores, Acneic and burned skin. Apple cider vinegar or ACV as it’s known on the streets is great for balancing the body’s ph inside and out! Pour it on a burn and it will draw out the sting. Apply to acne or oily skin so the malic acids and lactic acids with gently exfoliate and kill bacteria. Apply directly on areas with cotton round.

organic-olive-oil

5. Olive Oil- Skin Types: Dry and Aging. This favorite cooking companion is a nice bath counterpart too. Add a few tablespoon in your bath and watch the dry scaly legs go bye bye. Olive oil is rich in anti-oxidants that will protect you skin from further environmental damage. Mix a little of this with avocado or honey for SUPER hydrating mask. Leave on face as a moisturizer or blot with paper towel. I personally love it as an eye makeup remover. Watch this video I made on how to properly remove it.

Try and mix some of these ingredients together for multiple skin issue. My all time favorites that make my skin soft and bright is 1/4 mashed avocado and 1 teaspoon honey. Please share some of your kitchen favorites in the comment section below. Happy mixing!

FIND YOUR BALANCE FROM THE INSIDE OUT by Guest Blogger & Beauty Expert Asia DeMarcos

Asia_new

Hi Superheroes in-training!

B here to talk to you about my motto “Find Your Balance.”This is an important part of life, if we don’t have balance, then we will fall over.

Finding your balance in life is a work in progress don’t fret even Superheros are flawed!

Balance in Love

I was working on a client around Valentines day as she affectionately spoke about her fiance. When I asked her, what was her secret to love and happiness? She said something so brilliant I had to share. She said her and her mate were very much alike, so they had a lot in common.  They were different enough that they could learn from each other, which created their “balance.” I love this, I often think about this in my friendships. How about yours?

Balance in Life

I was watching a documentary over the weekend and a cancer survivor said a poignant phrase. “You are what you eat, drink and think”. These simple words speak to me and hold truth. What do you eat?

You produce new skin cells every 30 days. So we constantly form “new life” and it shows on our skin. The skin is the largest organ and tissue in the body, so why don’t we treat it with more importance? Have no fear Beautasia is here with my top 3 foods for glowing skin.

What do you eat?

1. Spinach I love this green leafy delight. It contains folic acid which is important for many body functions but is the number one mineral that gynecologist recommend while pregnant because its vital for brain function and growth.  Spinach has tons of vitamin C that protects the skin, and every Superhero needs a shield of protection! Finally spinach  also oxygenates the blood. We need oxygen to survive, right?

2.Fish Our friends from the sea are LOADED with omega fatty acids that help fight wrinkles, but MORE importantly this nutrient fights inflammation. Mama Beautasia always says, “inflammation is the root of all evil.” Inflammation starts what’s called the arachidonic acid cascade. This is the breakdown of cells, which I don’t have to tell you is bad bad bad.

3. Brown Rice These little nuggets of joy are low on the glycemic index and are great to keep you trim. But they also have ceramides in them. You will see this ingredient on the label of many skincare ingredients. Ceramides are the cellular “glue” that keeps the skin cells together. With a lack of this you will start to see sagging  and a breakdown in skin. Booooooo

Beautasia note: I’ll admit, I’m not perfect, *SPOILER ALERT* I like to eat french fries every now and then. But you’ll find me the next day juicing or doing extra cardio. Thus creating my balance.

What do you drink?

 Water Good ol H20, natures finest flushes out toxins and hydrates everything inside to keep it moving. Did you know our bodies are 70% water? Depletion of this vital liquid causes…you guessed it, inflammation.

 What are you thinking?

In this age of spirituality vs religion we hear a lot about karma and positivity. Remember The Secret?. No matter what your higher power is, positive thinking will get you further in life. Who wants to be around negative Nancy’s? (Sorry if your name is Nancy. lol). When I walk into my local gym in the morning, I’m greeted (or not) buy a stone face girl. At first it sets me off, because, that’s not the way I would like to start off my day. But I can only wonder what is so bad that she can’t smile?  So when this happens in life. Smile back, you never know what you’re going to get, maybe that person is waiting for someone to be nice to them. Also check out an older blog post for more on this subject of compassion.

Beautasia update: I noticed the stone faced girl at the gym had a new hair cut, I commented that it was cute (it was) and since then she’s all smiles to me. Maybe she just needed someone to pay attention to her? The point is, you never know. So don’t judge a book by it’s cover and always KEEP SMILING.

Thanks for reading my thoughts. I would love to hear how you find your balance. Comment below, and until next time B-happy and healthy from the inside out!
