life wheelAre you using the energy of this powerful ‘8 Universal Year’ to create more success and balance in your life? If not, read on…

So you may be wondering what does an 8 Universal Year in Numerology mean exactly? It simply means that all of the numbers within the year 2015 added up together = 8. Therefore, an 8 Universal year is creating a specific energy that the entire world is feeling during this calendar year. Also, we all have a personal year that we are in, which contributes to the energies we are feeling. You can always contact me for more information regarding what personal year you are currently in. For now, I am focusing on the powerful energy of an 8 Universal Year. The energy of 2015 is a very intense energy that will amplify everything in our lives. The number 8 is known for its connection to money, power and recognition. Unlike the energy that swirled around last year causing you to want to retreat more inward. This energy is saying, “come out, be seen and be heard!” Basically, this energy is invoking you to bring forth anything that you have been dreaming about creating, selling, producing, birthing, or whatever it may be that you have already started. Bring it forth now, so you can achieve personal satisfaction and recognition and reap the financial benefits that are available to you.

Transition from Summer to Fall with these 5 Skin Care Tips

Autumn womanAs summer is a distant memory and we have settled into Fall, our skin also needs to acclimate to this transition. Out with the old, as we prepare the skin for anew and the excitement that this season brings. Changing up your skin care regimen can support Fall skin that may be feeling damaged, dry and in need of repair.

Let me share with you a few of my favorite tips for:

  • getting rid of sunscreen and other build up that may be clogging your pores,
  • treating skin that may have suffered from some inevitable sun damage, and
  • correcting the dull and dehydrated appearance of your skin, so it will be glowing once again.

Here are my 5 steps to achieving beautiful Fall skin:

  1. Cleanser: It is important to incorporate a purifying cleanser that can exfoliate the dead skin and stimulate collagen production. I love Quantum Hydrox’s Gentle Foaming Cleanser this time of year. It contains Glycolic & Salicylic Acid which are awesome exfoliators and Bio Marine Peptides that help to stimulate collagen, promote cellular turn over and plump up the skin.

  2. Exercise & H20: Nothing beats getting a great work-out and sweating to expel toxins from your body. Think about how great your skin always looks post a workout. If you really got your workout on and broke a huge sweat it is a good idea to do a cleanse right after, especially if you are prone to oily and acneic skin. I can’t mention exercise without mentioning the huge benefits of getting enough water daily.

    I follow and feel perfectly hydrated when I drink 1/2 of my body weight in ounces of water daily. Since our skin is prone to getting more dried out in the fall it is imperative to properly hydrate so your skin can reap the benefits.

  3. Healthy Diet: I cannot stress enough the importance that diet plays on our skin. It can really promote beautiful skin that is glowing literally from the inside out, or it can lead to dull, grey looking skin that looks like it needs some TLC. Eat as many fruits and veggies as possible.

    Nothing can replace the benefits of real food and all of the nutritional value that they bring to our wholeness and well being. They really are our first defense against aging and what our bodies need to look vibrant. Grab seasonal fruits and vegetables and eat according to the season. Shop at your local framer’s market for the best options and prices.

  4. Exfoliate: I would also consider a peel to fall proof your skin. I like both fruit acids and enzymatic peels. I absolutely recommend the Be Beautiful Now 30% AHA Pumpkin, Chemical Peel treatment. The aroma of pumpkin always gets me excited during this season. A good exfoliation treatment really unclogs the pores and prepares the skin to receive the benefits of an active moisturizer by allowing it to really penetrate deep into the skin. Just as important it is to exfoliate, it is equally important to not over exfoliate because that can add to more dryness, sensitivity and depletion of you skin’s natural moisture barrier.

    An active exfoliation treatment like the BBN 30% AHA Pumpkin, Chemical Peel is great every 14+ days depending on your age, skin type and condition. An over the counter gentle exfoliator should be used no more than 2-3x’s a week, again depending on your age, skin type and condition. Basically the drier, thinner and more irritable your skin is prone to being the less you want to topically irritate it with over exfoliation, less is best.

  5. Moisturize: Skin needs more TLC during the fall because the transition from warmer to colder weather can be extremely drying. Dry skin is fragile, therefore, it requires you to do more to protect your lipid layer. Remember to moisturize in the a.m. with a moisturizer that contains SPF. Just because the temperature has dropped it doesn’t mean that the sun is not present.

    You need SPF 365 days of the year. Also, summer sun and pollution can cause stress to the skin so fall is the perfect time to repair any damage with an intensive moisturizer. Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid and antioxidants are the active ingredients you want to be incorporating into your daily regimen via your moisturizers and serums. They help to deliver and retain moisture and hydration to the skin while supporting youthful skin structure and function.

    This time of year a lot of heaters are working overtime and that can also lead to more dehydration, so pull out a humidifier for extra skin support.

Enjoy and cheers to Healthy, Happy, Beautiful Fall skin!

What is an Ocean Cleanse, Negative Ion Foot Bath?

It is a self-contained, high-tech water detoxification treatment that enables the body to heal itself. It is a detox, water, foot bath that uses brass and stainless steel electrodes to cleanse, balance and the enhance the bio-energy (the vital energy force present in the breath of bodily fluids). This energy is the electro-magnetic force that is stored within the body and utilized by our cells.

Within Chinese medicine this energy is referred to as, “chi.” During this 30 minute negative ion foot bath the complex energy fields permeate and realign the body’s energy field while improving oxygen levels. This particular foot bath treatment is widely used to increase energy, (both physical and mental) vitality, and stamina, at the same time it purges (detoxifies) the body of toxins, chemicals, radiation, pollution, synthetics, and other foreign material trapped in the skin layers that have clogged up the body’s systems of elimination.

This detox, water, foot bath creates the correct frequency required for the cells to return to a healthy state, and to release waste that has been bonded to them over the years.

What are some of the benefits from an Ocean Cleanse, Negative Ion Foot Detox?
Most people should immediately experience an increased sense of well being and more energy. Approximately 95% of people in this culture experience a state of acidity; this is, their bodies contain an excess of hydrogen ions, and their blood pH is lower than 7.45. These people will greatly benefit from exposure to high concentrations of negatively charged ions. The ionic technique of cleansing thru the feet provides a full body purge for all vital organs, resulting in reduced: menopause symptoms, menstrual cramps, sexual health problems, wrinkles, acne & other skin problems, sleep problems, inflammation, body fluid retention, restlessness, stress, toothaches, vaginal dryness, candida, yeast infections, pain relief, headaches, gout and arthritis.

This internal cleansing process also results in faster disease healing and injury recovery as well as: providing a liver detoxification, purging of heavy metals, increase in energy, improved memory and sleep, kidney and parasite cleanse, enhanced immune system, greater bladder control, and a more balanced pH.

In today’s somewhat toxic environment, tissue acid wastes, chemical and heavy metal residues build up in the body faster than ever before, resulting in a greater incidence of allergies, and mental and physical incapacitation. Therefore, we have begun to hear more about herbal and homeopathic detoxification systems and programs by alternative health practitioners as a way of reducing symptomology and maintaining health. All healing traditions-Egyptian, Native American, Ayurvedic, Homeopathic, Chinese, Shamanic- except Western Medicine offer body purification as a means of healing and avoiding disease.

The Ocean Cleanse Foot Detox in combination with a healthy, low-stress lifestyle, provides a thorough and efficient way to maintain high energy levels and long term wellness.

How an Ocean Cleanse, Negative Ion Foot Detox Works within the Body
As believed in Reflexology, each foot is actually a channel, a conduit, through which your body attempts to cleanse itself of toxic wastes and heavy metals that are building up in many parts of your body. Ions are atoms or molecules that have lost or gained electrons (free radicals are unpaired electrons).

If the atoms or molecules lose electrons, they become positively charged ions, or acidic in nature. If they gain electrons, they become negatively charged ions, alkaline in nature. A water molecule is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. When the molecule loses a hydrogen atom becoming a positive charge, the remaining OH molecule gains an electron therefore giving it a negative charge.

As you walk along the beach, your body absorbs millions of these negatively charged ions, which in turn alkalize the blood and tissue and leave you feeling invigorated and tranquil, similar to the effects of a foot detox. Therefore, a positive polarity generates a negative flow which, is believed to raise blood PH from acidic toward alkaline, one of the biggest benefits of this treatment. Studies show that an overall balancing effect occurs, along with a significant increase in the number of negative ions during the foot detox. Due to poor diets and high stress levels we tend to accumulate and store excessive quantities of waste products, such as: diabetic, lactic, pyruvic, uric, carbonic, acetic, butyric, and hepatic acids.

Thus avoiding disease and maintaining vitality, as we age, requires the maintenance of an alkaline environment throughout the body, which can be challenging at times in our high-tech, high-stress, at times toxic society, and the truth is we all don’t take a walk on the beach everyday. Therefore, we are not absorbing millions of negatively charged ions on a regular basis, and that is why a foot detox session can be very beneficial.

What to Expect During and After an Ocean Cleanse, Negative Ion Foot Detox
During the foot bath, you will actually see the cleansing process taking place as the water interacts with a compound electric current and magnetic field structure. The Ocean cleanse creates the same environment as the walk along the beach, only more powerfully because your feet are in direct contact with the ions being manufactured in the water. After the pretreatment consultation, you place your feet in the water.

The unit is turned on and within seconds millions of ions enter your body and begin to neutralize these tissue acid wastes. The particles, fat, and mucous residues found in the water after soaking reflect the wastes that have exited the body during the 30 minute session. Throughout the cleanse you will notice color changes in the water as toxins are being removed. The water color can range from yellow-green, orange, brown, black, to dark green; you may even notice white foam or white cheese-like particles floating on the water’s surface, and/or black or red flecks resting at the bottom of the foot basin.The color and texture indicates which organs or body systems are releasing toxins.

The particles, fat and mucous residues found in the water reflect the wastes that have left your body. (Most of this color is due to the toxin particles that are drawn out through the pores of the feet. However, some is from the leaching of the metal from the array and from the amount of sediment in the water.) On completion of the treatment, the feet are removed and rinsed and generally you feel very peaceful and relaxed.

Individuals who Should Not Use the Machine
The Ocean Cleanse should not be used by individuals who are Epileptic or Hemophiliac, or those with a pacemaker or any other battery-operated or electrical implant/organ, or those who are on blood thinners or any other type of heartbeat regulating medication. It should not be used by children under the age of 6, or during pregnancy and while breast feeding. Persons with having an organ removed, especially the colon or Persons taking a medication, the absence of which would mentally or physically incapacitate them (ex:psychotic episodes, seizures etc.)
