Each January for the past few years, I have come down with a crazy terrible cold. The type of cold that has me laying on the couch wrapped up in blankets, keeping the Kleenex box nearby, coughing like a maniac and feeling like death is near.

With a packed schedule and tons of exciting projects to work on, I was determined to avoid my usual new year sickness. So I've been doing a few simple things to stay healthy!

Your Gut Bacteria is Causing Sugar Cravings

Posted April 28, 2016 in probiotics, gut health, healthy living and 5 more


While some of our cravings for sugar may be caused by emotions or habits, some of us could be experiencing physical cravings.

And it all starts in the gut. 

The bacteria in your digestive system can determine the types of foods you crave. 

There are millions of microbes living in the body, many in the stomach and intestines. Things like taking antibiotics, eating processed food, eating high sugar food, stress, lack of sleep and breathing toxins can shift the balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut.

*The following are my suggestions based off my education and experience as a health coach and my personal experiences. You should always consult a medical professional before taking a new supplement. A functional medicine doctor can create a supplement program for your unique needs. 

There are so many supplements on the market that choosing what's right for you can be confusing. 

I believe that we're all different and our bodies thrive on different things - one person's food is another person's poison. You may have to experiment a bit with your supplement routine, and your supplement routine may change over time as you age. 

But finding supplements that work for you doesn't have to be hard. Here's my guide to buying the best supplements...

It's been a rough week over here. I'm home from work for a second day this week with a gross cold/sinus thing. 

I can't stop sneezing, my eyes won't stop watering, my head is pounding and I'm just exhausted. 

I actually haven't been sick in over a year! I credit my year of health to the fact that I've been on top of my nutrition game...drinking greens almost every day, staying super hydrated, drinking my antioxidant supplement, taking a daily probiotic and multivitamin (which has an antioxidant-rich spice blend) and drinking all the smoothies. I honestly can't believe I made it through last year - a year with a constantly packed schedule and lots of stress - without getting sick. 

It seems like lots of people have been walking around with some kind of sickness lately, so I thought I would share some of the natural remedies I use when I'm sick...
