The Invisible and Ignored. Lymph

When we talk about body systems, the ones commonly mentioned are cardio-vascular, nervous, muscular and skeletal. And yet, there is a system our entire body (except for hair, nails and cartilage) bathes in constantly – lymphatic! There are fifteen liters of lymph in a human body. That is three times more than blood! If you […]

Your armpits will love it

Trying to use as natural products as possible when it comes to my body, I have been using Lush deodorant with patchouli scent for the last ten or so years. Thing is – it drove my boyfriend nuts and it did not last as long as I wanted it to. I am a bodyworker and […]

Sleep on your left to detox

If you ever wondered whether there is the best position to sleep in, there is! It is on your left side. Here is why: – improves circulation to the heart – allows the brain to remove waste more easily – takes pressure off the liver and supports spleen – encourages proper digestion, prevents heartburn – helps to drain […]

Himalayas Air in Your Bedroom

From the moment I saw an online ad for Himalayan salt lamps, I knew I wanted one! I owned this lamp for many years now and it worked great all this time, providing soft, orange-ish glow for my bedroom, and, allegedly, ionizing the air. I think I only changed a bulb once or twice in ten years! I honestly […]

Look and Feel Better with Earth

I am always looking for effective and hopefully cheap tools to help me feel and look good. One day my co-worker at Neuro Muscular Rehabilitation Center, mentioned a grounded blanket she has been using to help her sleep better. It worked by connecting to the Earth`s surface charge, she said. I did not understand much of that […]

Super Chai

I was not looking for any new drink. It found Me.)) A few months ago a co-worker brought a package of turmeric chai for us to taste. I had a cup and then had to work on a bunch of people without taking a break for three hours… I was surprised how energized I felt. […]

You think you know how to breathe?

In August 2014 I have participated in a life-changing seminar called Restorative Breathing, taught by Lois Laynee, Ph.d. The idea was brilliantly simple, the exercises taught in class were great. I highly recommend any health practitioner or just a layman to take that class with Lois. In a few words, optimal breathing in a healthy […]

Sleep. If you can

There was a seven months period when I had to sleep on a couch in my girlfriend`s living room. It was not bad, but I went from having peaceful nights of rest to waking up every few hours at the most inconvenient time like 2 and 4am, and then feeling like crap in the morning […]

Master Cleanse

Last night I went to listen to one of my favorite massage teachers/chiropractor speak about cleanses. We talked about how important it is to detoxify the body, mind, spirit. He offered us to come up with three things we want to fast from and three – to feast on. I thought it was brilliant! Many […]

The results are in

In December of 2004 I had been diagnosed with hypothyroid disorder, which means my thyroid gland is under active, causing all kind of trouble – like weight gain, fatigue, hair loss, etc. I went on hormonal therapy for awhile (armour thyroid), but a year later decided to stop taking pills. You see, I am a big […]
