How To Make A Detox Bath

Detox is a process your body does naturally without you even knowing it.  However, the capacity of your body’s detoxification process is not endless. AND, your body may not be equipped to handle the barrage of toxicity is it exposed to.

But do not despair. There is a fun, cheap, easy-to-do activity that can help out as it will encourage the body to efficiently flush out toxins. A BATH!

A detox bath is one of the easiest healing therapies that can be done to facilitate and enhance our body’s natural detoxification process.

There are a few types of detox baths that you can do, all of whom are extremely easy to do, inexpensive, requiring only a couple of ingredients. Check out 2 of my favorite ones here!

My Beef With Milk

I have a bone to pick with milk.

And with the people that tell us that milk is great and with the celebrities making money and trying to sell you the “white stuff”.

Well, I’m here to tell you that it isn’t.

WHY? Check out the video to find out!

Look, you don’t have to believe me if you don’t want to but what I will ask is that you PLEASE do your homework.

Ayurveda 101 With Nadya Andreeva

Ayurveda is an ancient practice that literally means “Science of Life”. It has been practiced in India for thousands of years and it is becoming increasingly popular in the western world as people move towards finding alternative treatments to compliment western science and prevent diseases.

I have always been very curious about the benefits of Ayurveda, Ayurvedic body types, Ayurvedic products and its wonderful uses.

So I asked my fellow health coach and friend Nadya Andreeva, a self-described modern Ayurveda girl, to come to my aid and help answer my (and probably your) basic Ayurveda questions here.

Nadya has gracefully agreed to let me pick her brain so you and I both can learn a little bit more about Ayurveda and how it can help us.

Check out the video here!

Amazing, right!?
