Taking a Break

I find myself not updating my blog much these days. Why? Well I am not exactly sure. I was so driven to put out all this great information, which I did, but I guess I must have got burnt out. I find myself doing trivial things like puzzles, playing video games, reading, mostly with my husband and kids, but sometimes alone.

I hope to regain my drive and motivation to provide good information again, but for now I hope you will forgive me for not participating much. I still believe in health and wellness, and I pray everyone out there will take care of their God given bodies. Remember, God made you to be just the way you are, and He doesn't make mistakes. So please look after the gift that is YOU.

So until I feel the urge to write and update this blog of mine once again, God bless.

Feelings of Despair

Yes, I am feeling way down right now, so I thought I'd write a bit to help. My problem? Well you could say that I'm just feeling sorry for myself, but I feel it's more than that. I think my main issue is that I am flat broke, in debt up to my eyeballs, and I cannot see a light at the end of the tunnel.

Everyone and their dog has a great way to make extra money, but I am not sure what is real, and what is full of crap. So many people I hear from make huge money claims, yet, I am of the belief, that if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.

Bottom line is that I really want my MLM company to do well, but I am not wanting to bug everyone I know to join me. I feel that my product and company are superior, and can be life changing. It has changed my life for the better, and I know for a fact that this company isn't full of crap. How can I show everyone else out there that this is a fantastic opportunity for health and wealth? I need team players to help me grow this business, and everyone wins in the long run. so how do I find them? Are they out there?

Anyway, I feel a little overwhelmed with starting a new business, and wish someone would help me do it. My upline is very helpful, but I want to try the internet, and they just want to call people. I am trying some attraction marketing training, but I am even overwhelmed by that as well. There is so much to learn and do. How do I know if I am doing it right? Am I unique enough? Do people enjoy my content? How do I get people to be interested in what I am offering? I am trying to give value to everyone, but sometimes I am so confused and just don't know what to do next.

Can anyone relate? I don't mean to be negative, I am actually a very positive person, but sometimes I lose focus, and feel hopeless. I am very honest, and trustworthy, and perhaps a tad bit gullable too. I just wish I could get people to see what I see.

Thanks for listening, I do feel better for writing my thoughts down.

Observations Of People And What Ails Them

I have been doing some obvservations of people and what ails them. In my job I see many people, and I hear about their problems, whether I want to or not. The majority of these problems are health related.
I have come to the conclusion that either they don't really care to do anything about it, or they have gone through trying to fix themselves with no luck. Many of these people have gone to doctors galore, yet nothing has worked. Some just do nothing because they don't trust the doctors, but don't know what else they can do. Some even try a few things, but don't give them the time they need to start working. And very few are actually proactive in seeking out alternative methods.
I listen time and time again to these people, and I always come to the same thoughts in my mind. I wish I could just tell them about something that is amazing and works on many things they tell me about. But in my job, I cannot do that because it would be a conflict of interest.
These are a few questions that I would like to ask these people:
-What if you could eliminate your pain and suffering, how much is that worth to you?
-What if I could offer you something natural to help you sleep better?
-Would you like to increase your energy level naturally, and have it last?
-Would you like to improve your memory and concentration?
-How much are you willing to spend to improve your health and fight off disease?
-Did you know there is a nutritional beverage that can improve your life dramatically?
-could you use some extra cash?
I could go on and on with questions like this, because I know first hand that people, including myself and my family, can heal their ailments. Our bodies are designed to do just that, but we have to give them the correct fuel to do that huge job. Unfortunately, most of what we eat doesn't have even close to the right amount of nutrients. And most supplements we ingest are highly unabsorbable.
So here is what I really want to tell all my patients about, but can't. A fabulous nutritional beverage called Mona Vie. If I could, I would make sure everyone in the world was drinking this juice. It has the capability to heal almost anything because of its' unique content, and amazing attributes. It is very absorbable, is a whole food, is organic , and comes from many remote areas of the world.
I also would love to share with my patients how it has helped my family, and many other friends and their loved ones too. It truly is amazing, and is a remarkable gift from God for us to use. He wants us to heal ourselves, and this is the tool to do the job.
Please consider trying this amazing juice for yourself, or recommend it to someone you care about that is suffering in some way with their health.
Here is the link that you will need to check it out, and don't hesitate to contact me.

Happy Mothers Day!

I just wanted to take this opportunity to say happy mothers day to all the mothers out there! My mom was just here for a short visit, and I was really happy to see her. I really have missed her and as I get older, I feel more and more connected to her.

The wisdom she carries is phenominal, and I love to hear her telling me stories of my childhood, and everything she has learned over the years.

Of course, there are moments when I do not agree with her, and times when I feel she is too meddiling, but that's a mother's job. She knows I will always do things my own way, and she's okay with that. She has raised me to be my own person, and would be disappointed if I always followed everyone, including her.

So, I must say I love her more than ever, and I will cherish all our memories for my entire life.
Happy mothers day mom!

A Woman's Heart Attack Symptoms

This is a very compelling story of a woman's experience with a heart attack. It is very different than a man's, so please read, because you may save a life.


I am an ER nurse and this is the best description of this event that I have ever heard/read. Please read, pay attention, and send it on!


I was aware that female heart attacks are different, but this is the best description I've ever read.Women and heart attacks (Myocardial infarction).

Did you know that women rarely have the same dramatic symptoms that men have when experiencing heart attack know, the sudden stabbing pain in the chest, the cold sweat, grabbing the chest & dropping to the floor that we see in the movies. Here is the story of one woman's experience with a heart attack.

'I had a heart attack at about 10 :30 PM with NO prior exertion, NO prior emotional trauma that one would suspect might have brought it on. I was sitting all snugly & warm on a cold evening, with my purring cat in my lap, reading an interesting story my friend had sent me, and actually thinking, 'A-A-h, this is the life, all cozy and warm in my soft, cushy Lazy Boy with my feet propped up.

A moment later, I felt that awful sensation of indigestion, when you've been in a hurry and grabbed a bite of sandwich and washed it down with a dash of water, and that hurried bite seems to feel like you've swallowed a golf ball going down the esophagus in slow motion and it is most uncomfortable. You realize you shouldn't have gulped it down so fast and needed to chew it more thoroughly and this time drink a glass of water to hasten its progress down to the stomach.

This was my initial sensation---the only trouble was that I hadn't taken a bite of anything since about 5:00 p.m.

After it seemed to subside, the next sensation was like little squeezing motions that seemed to be racing up my SPINE (hind-sight, it was probably my aorta spasms), gaining speed as they continued racing up and under my sternum (breast bone, where one presses rhythmically when ministering CPR)..This fascinating process continued on into my throat and branched out into both jaws. 'AHA!! NOW I stopped puzzling about what was happening -- we all have read and/or heard about pain in the jaws being one of the signals of an MI happening, haven't we? I said aloud to myself and the cat, Dear God, I think I'm having a heart attack!

I lowered the foot rest dumping the cat from my lap, started to take a step and fell on the floor instead. I thought to myself, If this is a heart attack, I shouldn't be walking into the next room where the phone is or anywhere else ... but, on the other hand, if I don't, nobody will know that I need help, and if I wait any longer I may not be able to get up in a moment.

I pulled myself up with the arms of the chair, walked slowly into the next room and dialed the Paramedics ... I told her I thought I was having a heart attack due to the pressure building under the sternum and radiating into my jaws. I didn't feel hysterical or afraid, just stating the facts. She said she was sending the Paramedics over immediately, asked if the front door was near to me, and if so, to un-bolt the door and then lie down on the floor where they could see me when they came in.

I unlocked the door and then laid down on the floor as instructed and lost consciousness, as I don't remember the medics coming in, their examination, lifting me onto a gurney or getting me into their ambulance, or hearing the call they made to St. Jude ER on the way, but I did briefly awaken when we arrived and saw that the radiologist was already there in his surgical blues and cap, helping the medics pull my stretcher out of the ambulance. He was bending over me asking questions (probably something like 'Have you taken any medications?') but I couldn't make my mind interpret what he was saying, or form an answer, and nodded off again, not waking up until the Cardiologist and partner had already threaded the teeny angiogram balloon up my femoral artery into the aorta and into my heart where they installed 2 side by side stents to hold open my right coronary artery.

'I know it sounds like all my thinking and actions at home must have taken at least 20-30 minutes before calling the paramedics, but actually it took perhaps 4-5 minutes before the call, and both the fire station and St. Jude are only minutes away from my home, and my Cardiologist was already to go to the OR in his scrubs and get going on restarting my heart (which had stopped somewhere between my arrival and the procedure) and installing the stents.

'Why have I written all of this to you with so much detail? Because I want all of you who are so important in my life to know what I learned first hand.'1. Be aware that something very different is happening in your body not the usual men's symptoms but inexplicable things happening (until my sternum and jaws got into the act).

It is said that many more women than men die of their first (and last) MI because they didn't know they were having one and commonly mistake it as indigestion, take some Maalox or other anti-heartburn preparation and go to bed, hoping they'll feel better in the morning when they wake up ... which doesn't happen.

My female friends, your symptoms might not be exactly like mine, so I advise you to call the Paramedics if ANYTHING is unpleasantly happening that you've not felt before.It is better to have a 'false alarm' visitation than to risk your life guessing what it might be!

2. Note that I said 'Call the Paramedics.' And if you can take an aspirin. Ladies, TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE! Do NOT try to drive yourself to the ER - you are a hazard to others on the road.Do NOT have your panicked husband who will be speeding and looking anxiously at what's happening with you instead of the road.Do NOT call your doctor -- he doesn't know where you live and if it's at night you won't reach him anyway, and if it's daytime, his assistants (or answering service) will tell you to call the Paramedics. He doesn't carry the equipment in his car that you need to be saved! The paramedics do, principally OXYGEN that you need ASAP. Your Dr. will be notified later.

3. Don't assume it couldn't be a heart attack because you have a normal cholesterol count. Research has discovered that a cholesterol elevated reading is rarely the cause of an MI (unless it's unbelievably high and/or accompanied by high blood pressure). MIs are usually caused by long-term stress and inflammation in the body, which dumps all sorts of deadly hormones into your system to sludge things up in there. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know the better chance we could survive.

Butter Vs. Margarine

FACTS you probably didn't know. Someone sent me this email, and it is very interesting. I think I will switch!

This was passed on to me by a medical doctor friend.

Pass The Butter .. please. This is interesting . . . Margarine was originally manufactured to fatten turkeys. When it killed the turkeys, the people who had put all the money into the research wanted a payback so they put their heads together to figure out what to do with this product to get their money back.

It was a white substance with no food appeal so they added the yellow coloring and sold it to people to use in place of butter. How do you like it? They have come out with some clever new flavorings.

DO YOU KNOW.. the difference between margarine and butter? Read on to the end...gets very interesting!

Both have the same amount of calories. Butter is slightly higher in saturated fats at 8 grams compared to 5 grams. Eating margarine can increase heart disease in women by 53% over eating the same amount of butter, according to a recent Harvard Medical Study.

Eating butter increases the absorption of many other nutrients in other foods. Butter has many nutritional benefits where margarine has a few only because they are added!

Butter tastes much better than margarine and it can enhance the flavors of other foods. Butter has been around for centuries where margarine has been around for less than 100 years.

And now, for Margarine.. Very high in trans fatty acids . Triple risk of coronary heart disease. Increases total cholesterol and LDL (this is the bad cholesterol) and lowers HDL cholesterol, (the good cholesterol)

Increases the risk of cancers up to five fold.
Lowers quality of breast milk.
Decreases immune response.
Decreases insulin response.

And here's the most disturbing fact.... HERE IS THE PART THAT IS VERY INTERESTING! Margarine is but ONE MOLECULE away from being PLASTIC..

This fact alone was enough to have me avoiding margarine for life and anything else that is hydrogenated (this means hydrogen is added, changing the molecular structure of the substance).

You can try this yourself: Purchase a tub of margarine and leave it in your garage or shaded area. Within a couple of days you will note a couple of things: * no flies, not even those pesky fruit flies will go near it (that should tell you something) * it does not rot or smell differently because it has no nutritional value; nothing will grow on it. Even those teeny weeny microorganisms will not a find a home to grow.

Why? Because it is nearly plastic. Would you melt your Tupperware and spread that on your toast?
Share This With Your Friends.....(If you want to 'butter them up')!

Swine Flu Panic

I would like to share my thoughts on this Swine Flu Panic. I know everyone and their dog is worried, and rightly so, this is more than just your average flu. It has caused a number of deaths already, but so far only in Mexico.

Why do you think we are so worried? I have an opinion as to why this may be. We are unhealthy as a nation. To fight off a substantial bug like this one, our immune systems have to be near perfect, and we need to have some good preventive health practices in play. I know we don't like to admit it, but we as a majority don't have a clue how to do this.

Do we eat enough of the essential foods to make our bodies have this fighting power? Some of us do, but the sad reality is that at least 90% of us don't. I have a couple of health related articles that I have written, and instead of repeating what I've already wrote about, I will refer you to them. and
I highly encourage you to get proactive with improving your health, and immunity, and the best way to do this is through whole non-toxic foods. This can be very difficult to find where we live, but I know for a fact there is a product that I personally use that is the best for this. The scientific studies that have been done on it proove that it works.
Here is a link to my personal web page about this product. Please take this important step for your health, and give yourself a fighting chance against this horrible Swine flu. If you want me to help you order some for you, just contact me and I will contact you. My email is Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

Will You Dance With Me?

I was sent this as an email, there was no author's name, but is pretty profound, and sadly very true.

Will You Dance With Me?

Too many people put off something that brings them joy just because they haven't thought about it, don't have it on their schedule, didn't know it was coming or are too rigid to depart from their routine.

I got to thinking one day about all those women on the Titanic who passed up dessert at dinner that fateful night in an effort to cut back. From then on, I've tried to be a little more flexible. How many women out there will eat at home because their husband didn't suggest going out to dinner until after something had been thawed? Does the word 'refrigeration' mean nothing to you?

How often have your kids dropped in to talk and sat in silence while you watched 'Jeopardy' on television?I cannot count the times I called my sister and said, 'How about going to lunch in a half hour?' She would gas up and stammer, 'I can't. I have clothes on the line. My hair is dirty. I wish I had known yesterday, I had a late breakfast, It looks like rain.' And my personal favorite: 'It's Monday.' She died a few years ago. We never did have lunch together..

Because North Americans cram so much into their lives, we tend to schedule our headaches. We live on a sparse diet of promises we make to ourselves when a ll the conditions are perfect ! We'll go back and visit the grandparents when we get Steve toilet-trained. We'll entertain when we replace the living-room carpet... We'll go on a second honeymoon when we get two more kids out of college.

Life has a way of accelerating as we get older. The days get shorter, and the list of promises to ourselves gets longer. One morning, we awaken, and all we have to show for our lives is a litany of 'I'm going to,' 'I plan on,' and 'Someday, when things are settled down a bit.'

When anyone calls my 'seize the moment' friend, she is open to adventure and available for trips. She keeps an open mind on new ideas. Her enthusiasm for life is contagious. You talk with her for five minutes, and you're ready to trade your bad feet for a pair of Roller blades and skip an elevator for a bungee cord..

My lips have not touched ice cream in 10 years. I love ice cream. It's just that I might as well apply it directly to my stomach with a spatula and eliminate the digestive process The other day, I stopped the car and bought a triple-Decker. If my car had hit an iceberg on the way home, I would have died happy.

Now...go on and have a nice day. Do something you WANT to.......not something on your SHOULD DO list. If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting? Make sure you read this to the end; you will understand why I sent this to you.

Have you ever watched kids playing on a merry go round or listened to the rain lapping on the ground? Ever followed a butter fly's erratic flight or gazed at the sun into the fading night? Do you run through each day on the fly?

When you ask ' How are you?' Do you hear the reply? When the day is done, do you lie in your bed with the next hundred chores running throug h your head? Ever told your child, 'We'll do it tomorrow.' And in your haste, not see his sorrow? Ever lost touch? Let a good friendship die? Just call to say 'Hi?

When you worry and hurry through your day, it is like an unopened gift....Thrown away..... Life is not a race Take it slower. Hear the music before the song is over. It's National Friendship Week.. Show your friends how much you care. Send this to everyone you consider a FRIEND. If it comes back to you, then you'll know you have a circle of friends. To those I have sent this to... I cherish our friendship and appreciate all you do. 'Life may not be the party we hoped for... But while we are here we might as well dance'

Business Opportunities Galore

Hey, are you feeling like me? I am reeling from all the business opportunities that are flying around these days. I just can't help but to feel like the world is pushing me to pick theirs.

But guess what? I already have my own business. The question now is, how do I attract people to my business team without them feeling pushed too? I am the least pushiest person around, and I certainly know how it feels to be skeptical, and afraid of being scammed.

I know my business opportunity is second to none, but how does anyone trust me on this? If you were to ask my friends and co-workers, they'd tell you how trustworthy I am, but the reality is, that without having that personal relationship, how do you know?

I am feeling overwhelmed these days by people reading my Squidoo lenses, and following me on Twitter, and me not knowing what the outcome of it may be. I guess I'm stuck with knowing what comes next in this internet world. I am doing some great training, which has gotten me this far, so onward and upward I go!

I am on an amazing journey of knowledge, and I know there are great things out there for me. Patience is definitely something I am needing to exhibit. Thank you for reading my innermost thoughts. It feels good to get things off my mind, and down where I can see them. I have a new web site that I'm promoting, check it out.

Making Money With Relational Marketing

What is relational marketing? Well it is a lot like social marketing, direct selling, or MLM. The main difference is that you are buliding relationships with people you want to become full or partial business partners with.
First you need to find a reputable company to do this with, then you need to start with friends and family you want to spend some time with. Too many companies out there sign you up and leave you to fend for yourself. With all the companies out there, how do you choose the best one? Well here is some criteria the company you choose should meet.
You need to find a 5 star opportunity. What is this? Let me explain. First of all they must have a great product that you yourself use, and are happy with. Make sure the product you are promoting can be backed up with literature, and testimonies.
Second, you must have great timing. What do I mean by timing? Well for one it must be a ground floor opportunity, like for instance, Mona Vie is only 4 years old, so it is still considered ground floor. The product timing is important too, for example, the health and wellness industry is booming because of the aging baby boomer population. They are all looking for better health in a convenient form. So this is a great time to be promoting a nutritional product like Mona Vie.
Thirdly, the compensation plan they have has to be terrific. How easy is it for you to make money? What type of system do they have? Are there bonuses? Do your points accumulate over time, or do they get flushed away? All questions to be asking yourself when researching. Mona Vie is the best I've seen so far. The points you get are not flushed away, unless you choose to quit. They pay you every Friday on a special debit card, no waiting for checks in the mail. They have tremendous bonuses. You only have to sign up 2 people on the binary system to start getting money. Everyone works as a team. They make it so easy! They boast 1 new millionaire every 8 weeks! No other company out there can make that claim!
The fourth star includes the managment. A company should have a fantastic managment team. The company should also not have any debt, which is a sign of good managment. Mona Vie actually has a board of directors, which are an amazing team. They are there to make sure the company does well, and puts its' distibutors first. They also have a top notch customer service center, which is very important to answer all the questions in a timely manner. Mona Vie has it all, and then some. The founder of this company was invloved with other MLM companies, and has learned from all the mistakes they made, and has perfected a one of a kind company.
The fifth star is the "cause" the company is associated with. Mona Vie has a wonderful cause called the MORE project. They give back to the people of Brazil by getting children and families off the streets. They give job training so they can get jobs, they have built many orphanages, schools, hospitals, and safe houses. They are saving lives, and providing quality counselling for anyone who needs it. Mona Vie is also helping to save the rain forest from poachers, who chop down these important palm trees. There is so much more that I could say, but I don't want to make this too long. You could check out my Squidoo lens for links, and more information. ,and please consider joining my group called Being a True Monavier.
The support you get with this company is phenominal too. Lots of great training, and tools are available. You could check out my web site and look at the video about the opportunity as well.
One of my best friends is making more than $1600 per week, and I know I can duplicate her. This is so exciting! I have huge reasons why I want to do this. Do you have dreams? Can you make them happen with the job you're doing now? Do you need extra income? This is an opportunity of a lifetime, but once the word gets out there more, the opportunity will diminish greatly.
Now is the right time to get started helping people with a better quality of life, and eliminating chances for disease and illness in our lifetime. We need people like you to build relationships, and help make this a better world, one person at a time. Thank you for reading my blog. Please check out my new web site to help you with your marketing.

Food Matters

Does anyone realize that we are what we eat? I don't just mean fat either. I am talking about the stuff in our foods. Does anyone remember the acid rain days? Well we still haven't recovered from it. Our soil is still nutrient depleted, and full of harmful chemicals. Plus we still spray our produce with many things, and pick the food way before it ripens. The food you buy in the markets today is not fresh picked. Most of the time you are buying produce that was picked a week or more previous. It wasn't picked ripe, it was picked green, then put in a gas chamber to start the ripening process before we get it. Let me let you in on a little secret; folic acid is needed for nurtrient absorbtion, and most soil is deficient of it. That means the food being grown is not absorbing any nutrients from the sun or soil. The sprays we use don't allow the fruit to defend itself against anything, and therefore the food loses the nutients involved in fighting. We need this nutrient, and we need folic acid too. Our bodies are so riddled with toxins because of our food, and we wonder why our nation is so sick. Food does matter. Yet somehow we believe we are eating healthy, and are getting proper nutrition from our food, and vitamins. Now there is another topic. We don't even absorb 10% of the supplements we take. Our bodies are not designed to absorb synthetic, unnatural things. We are so brainwashed to believe that vitamins are a "fix all." What we need is whole food, that isn't riddled with toxins. Well, unfortunately, we cannot buy this in a store. Even many of the "so-called" oraganic foods are toxic too. They aren't as bad mind you, but still they come from the depleted soil we have in our nation. I can tell you there is hope though. My personal research and experience has led me to a wonderful nutritional beverage that offers this whole food, gives my body everything it needs, and is mostly made from organic, wild fruits, which are not from North America, are not sprayed, and are not picked too early. It prevents disease and illness, gives natural sustained energy, promotes healing, eliminates aches and pains, improves your mood, and helps your body look and feel younger. God gave us foods to heal our bodies, and we just have to find them and use them. Food does matter. Check out my squidoo lens about this subject too.
For more information email me at or check out my web page about this amazing product. This is a true gift from God, and I know for a fact we can live a longer healthier life if we drink it regularly. I also have a great Food Matters Video Intro for you to watch. Click on the link below.

Frustration With Money

Who isn't feeling the money pinch these days? I am no different. I wish we could just do away with money, and live free. I wish money wasn't such a presence in life. I know I am no different than anyone else, feeling overwhelmed by this subject. I am desperately trying to find my way in life, and I have so many people to help out financially. I have dreams and aspirations, just like most people do. I would like to do things with and for my children and husband, but it all comes down to money. I have been so focused these days, in learning how to make more money, and I have come across some really good stuff. I just need to implement what I'm learning, which is not easy for me. I am truly trying my best. Another question on my mind is: Am I just wasting my time, or am I on the right track? Who knows. I do know that I am on a journey of knowledge, and I need to go with the flow, and see where it takes me. Thanks for listening, I needed to vent my thoughts.

Sleep problems

Over the last few months, I have really paid attention to how many people out there have sleep problems. I am amazed that we can even function in a day! I personally struggled with this issue, as did my mother and my daughter as well. I don't think we give sleep the credit it's due. What happens when we lack sleep? Our bodies suffer greatly. Our immune systems are compromised, making us get sick easier, our brains can't function at their normal level, we get sleepy at the wrong times during the day, we are moody, we lack energy and motivation, it leads to obesity, or even the other side of it, anorexia. Do you think this sleep thing deserves more of our attention? I certainly do! Most of us just barely function, and chalk it up to it being just a part of life. Well let me tell you it isn't just "LIFE". There are many reasons why we don't sleep. Some of it is medical issues, some is stress related, and some of it is just the inability to get things done in normal waking hours. Some of us cannot shut our brains off at night either. I can't tell you how to overcome these things, but I can share my story and help you find a solution. First, there is my mother. She has always had trouble sleeping, and has taken many sleeping pills in her day. She had a sleep study done, and discovered she has Sleep Apnea. This of course, is a big problem for many people. This is a medically related problem. She also has stress in her life, and has difficulty shutting her brain down at night. Then there's myself. I am lucky not to have Sleep Apnea, but I do have the stress, and the overactive brain. My 10 year old daughter has this same issue. She thinks way too much at night! Thankfully we have all found a wonderful solution. We are all drinking an amazing nutritional beverage that has helped us find sleep again. We all feel terrific! It's amazing what getting proper nutrition can do for your body! Who knew it was related to sleep problems? My sleep is so much deeper than before, which is what we need. I used to be an extremely light sleeper, and would wake many times in a night. Sometimes I would "doze" which means I sort of slept, but not really. I am so happy to have found this solution, and to have helped my daughter and my mom too. I would love to hear your comments and thoughts. Please email me at Thank you for reading my 6th blog.

My Health Story

This is a condensed version of my life. Just like most people out there, I too have a story to tell. I am a wife, and a mother of two beautiful children. My oldest child is my daughter who is 10, and my son is 6. I have sufferred from depression of varying degrees since before I had them, and I had horrible post-partum after my daughter was born. I have always struggled with my weight, since I was a child, and that didn't help matters. My son was diagnosed with Autism when he was 2 years old, and that led to a whole new world of emotions and heartaches. I am an emotional eater, always have been, so needless to say, weight is a huge issue for me. I have tried all kinds of diets and pills, and with not much success. I was constantly tired, had no motivation to try to be healthier, and I constantly complained about it. Whenever I tried to exercise, my toes would go numb, and get cramps in them, forcing me to stop, not to mention my knees ached from my Arthritis. I was living a vicious circle of things. My doctor said I had to lose weight, as I had something called Insulin Resistance. This is basically a pre-warning sign that diabetes is inevitable if I don't change. I also had high blood pressure, and sometimes would get dizzy spells, I also had trouble sleeping. I really did not know how to change. My doctor offered me antidepressants, which I tried for a while, but I don't like bandaids for my problems. I tried counselling, which gets very expensive, and really did not help me enough. What did I do? Well for a long time, nothing. I just kept hoping my problems would disappear. I did try natural supplements like St John's Wort, but it did not work for me. Finally a friend of mine introduced me to a health beverage that literally has changed my life. I have lots of energy, I am motivated, I sleep better, my aches and pains are gone, my blood sugar is regulated, my blood pressure is back to normal, I am losing weight without even trying, and I can exercise without problems now too. My husband and children have noticed the change, and are very happy about it. No more grumpy, crying, angry me to deal with. I would be happy to share more information with you if you wish to know more. My email is

So Many Acai Products, How Do I Choose The Best One?

Now here's a topic I have been struggling with for quite some time now. Not all products out there are created equal. After my extensive research, I have discovered that some products are made just to "cash in" on the "Acai craze" that is going on right now. It is difficult to determine which one's these are, but if they are sending you spam mail, you can be sure their product is not what they say it is. Then I've noticed all these Acai juices in the supermarkets now, and of course the health food stores too. If you actually look at these juices, most of them are clarified, which means most of the pulp and oils have been taken out. The thing about the Acai, is that the pulp and skin is where the nutrients are. This is the part we need to put in our bodies for FULL nutritional benefits. Another issue is that there really is very little Acai in these juices or products at all. Maybe a total of 3 or 4%. Then they add other juices to the mix. I even know about one product that says 100% Acai, but it is mostly water, and sugar. They call it 100% because there are no other fruits added. Also, the Acai berry is not a juicy berry by nature either. So in order for it to be juice, the processed berry has to mixed with something. Some of the products out there taste absolutely terrible too. The Acai itself has somewhat of a bitter taste, and some people have been turned off by this. There are also different grades of the Acai berry, just like there are different grades of coffee beans, meats, produce, etc... This fact is not well known, but it's true. Because it is very expensive to harvest and process this fruit, many companies will save money by using the lower grades. Of course they would never admit to it, but nonetheless, it is a common occurance. Then that brings me to the harvesting process itself. It is very hot and humid in the Amazon, and when the Acai Berry is harvested it immediately starts to decompose. And if the berry is not processed within 24 hours of being picked it loses almost all of its' nutritional content. Some companies pick the berry before it is ripe for these reasons. Then they can transport it easier, and then process it. The problem with this practice is, that picking any fruit too early, makes it so that the fruit has not reached its' full nutritional potential. This is a common problem with the produce we buy as consumers. Why do you think our nation is so malnourished? We don't get what we think we're getting from our food. So what do we do? Well I can't tell you what you should do, but I do know of a product that is far superior to anything you can buy in the store. This product not only has a very high grade Acai, but also is blended with other highly graded fruits that compliment each other, and allows your body to absorb the nutrients much better. Plus this beverage gives you 13 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, which I don't think many of us get. This product is backed by science and literature, and has a patent pending harvesting process, which allows the nutrition to remain in the berry. They pick it ripe and process it right there with facilities they have bulit in Brazil. This product was 10 years in the making because the company wanted it to be the perfect nutrional food. It is just that. It has everything your body needs to be healthy, heal itself, fight illness and disease, and prevent you from ever getting the serious diseases out there. It gives you energy, helps you sleep, improves your mood, helps you look younger, improves memory, and much more. Who doesn't want all that? This is the only health product anyone needs, no more popping pills and supplements. Want more information? I would be more than happy to help you with that.

It's only money.

I have noticed that many people have different opinions about what they should and shouldn't spend their money on. For instance, I think health is something we all need to be investing our money in. Why? Well, it' simple really. If you have lots of money, but your health is poor, you won't be able to enjoy that money. If you know your body could be healthier, and you go and spend your last dollars on things like eating out, movie night, lattes, cigarettes, more clothes you don't need, or any other unneccessary items, then you are obviously not seeing the bigger picture. We are nothing without good health and well being. Who out there would rather get the best health they can? I know I do. I have found a way to be very healthy for the cost of a latte per day(the good kind). If I add up the cost it takes for me to buy a bunch of vitamins, and the cost of good quality produce, it is very expensive! And most of what we pay for is barely used by our bodies because of chemicals and over production. For example, a peach from the 1950's, has the nutritional value of 55 peaches today. That is outrageous! The vitamin industry makes a killing on us suckers who choose to buy their products. We are lucky if they dissolve in our stomaches at all, and if they do, we might only absorb 7% of them in our body. Then we go buy more, thinking that maybe the next batch will show us some results. Well why waste your money on stuff your body doesn't use, or just eliminates all together? I will let you in on a little secret, you don't have to waste that money anymore. There is hope. I know first hand the difference this health juice has made for myself, and my entire family. It truly is a gift from God, and he has meant for us to find it and use it to become disease free. This is not just a bunch of hype either. I know there are many products out there, I have tried almost all of them. This one is by far, the most superior, and complete nutritional product out there today. Invest in your health, before you lose it all together, and then nothing matters anymore anyway. If you would like to know more about what this is I am talking about, please email me.

Autism can be healed.

I have a son with Autism, or more specificly, PDDNOS. I have always believed he was born a normal boy, and things changed after immunizations. Of course I have no proof, just my word, and my observations. I have recently read books by Jenny McCarthy about the subject, and how she healed her son. In her second book, "Mother Warriors" there are stories of other parents who have healed their children as well. My eyes were opened to this new way of believing. I always knew something could be done, because I had already done things on my own to help heal my son. I have been a frequent visitor on this web site . There is tons of great information there about healing. Nutrition and supplementing is very important for these children, yet, a vast majority don't get what they need. There is a wide range of healing methods out there, and I encourage anyone who is wanting to get involved to go see a special doctor, called a DAN doctor. (Defeat Autism Now) Jenny McCarthy mentions a product that is very popular for nutritional supplementation called Mona Vie Original. This is by far the best way to get nutrition into anyone with just 2 shots(drinks) per day. This way, all the nutrients required are given at the same time, and no other supplements are needed. It is extremely convenient for everyone to use, and it tastes great! This juice provides the equivalent of 7-13 servings of fruit and vegetables per day. How many of you actually get your recommended servings? If you would like more information about any of this information please email me.
Believe me when I tell you, that we are very capable of healing many diseases, and ailments. All we need to do is look for it, and be willing and open minded enough to try. We don't have to be sick, we can choose to get better.

Health: does it really matter to you?

I am finding that I am really concerned about health these days. There has been a lot of death in our family, and it almost all is due to diseases. My biggest burden is the thought of cancer. The statistics show now, that 1 in 2 people are likely to get some form of cancer in their life. That is down right scary! Other diseases on my mind these days are heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer's. I have personally dealt with all of these in the past two years, and let me tell you, I am afraid. I know we can't go through our life afraid of everything, but I have been on a mission to find out how to prevent these things from happening to me and my family. I have done a ton of research, and have come to the conclusion, that our doctor's are not the one's we should be asking for help on this subject. They all say there really is nothing we can do, other than exercise, and eat right. Well, I happen to know that this isn't always the case. I know many people who died anyway, or got sick, even though they were/are very healthy, or at least that's what we all thought. The problem is that our food is so nutritionally depleted, that we are not getting what we think we're getting from our food. I was taking lots of supplements too, but we are lucky if we actually absorb 7% of what is in these supplements. Some supplements don't even dissolve at all, and are eliminated the same as when they were ingested. So what? Well, if we aren't getting the proper nutrition, then how can we possibly fight off disease and illness? I am happy to say that I have found a solution to this dilema. I have come across in my research, a health beverage that is the perfect balance of nutrition. It by far out surpasses any other product I've tried. It is backed by doctors and scientists, and has been researched heavily. I know it is the most powerful prevention out there, and I am very blessed to have found it, or actually, it found me. What is this product? I cannot actually tell you here, as I may get in to trouble. As most of you know, any health product that is not a proven drug, cannot make any claims. If you would like to know more about this product, please send me an email, and I would be glad to educate you on it. Here is my email: Thank you for reading my very first blog.
