I often get stopped by both men and women who ask me about my secrets to looking good and feeling great, and my simple reply often shocks most, however the “proof is in the pudding”. Thus, I finally decided to share my secrets with the public.
I truly practice what I preach and I’m always happy to share it with those who are willing to embrace a healthy lifestyle.
It is really not as complicated or expensive as most might think… Rather, it requires self-discipline, mindfulness, and a deep understanding of conscious living.
To make it simple, I will focus on three main causes which are often the root cause to most chronic conditions:
1. Your health begins in your gut.
2. Your skin is the largest organ in your body.
3. Conscious living enhances health, quality of life, saves lives of others, and thus promotes good Karma.
I chose to treat the only body I have as a sacred temple, by keeping it pure, in the midst of the overwhelming toxic soup we live in. Some of you are aware of the many dangers associated with GMO products, which have now been officially banned in 14 European countries, and many others. GMO foods have been directly linked to sky rocketing rates of diabetes, endocrine related conditions, auto- immune conditions, autism, ADHD, cancer, and myriad of other debilitating chronic diseases.
Jeffery Smith, from Institute of Responsible Technology, an organization dedicated to educating the world about the dangers associated with GMO foods, explains that most GM crops are engineered to tolerate a weed killer called Roundup®, whose active ingredient is glyphosate. These crops, known as Roundup-Ready crops, accumulate high levels of glyphosate that remain in the food. Corn and cotton varieties are also engineered to produce an insecticide called Bt-toxin. The Bt-toxin is produced in every cell of genetically engineered corn and ends up in corn chips, corn tortillas, and other ingredients derived from corn. A recent research analysis suggests that Bt-toxin, glyphosate, and other components of GMOs, are linked to five conditions that may either initiate or exacerbate gluten-related disorders:
· Intestinal permeability
· Imbalanced gut bacteria
· Immune activation and allergies
· Impaired digestion
· Damage to the intestinal wall – Leaky Gut
The list of GMO products is expanding at an alarmingly rapid rate. To learn more about the Leaky Gut Syndrome and other dangers of GMO foods, please visit:
In order to protect my family, we adhere to a strictly organic, GMO-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and alcohol-free, whole-food, plant-based diet. Since knowing what I ingest is my top priority, and I prepare every meal our family eats from scratch. We drink only filtered water, and we brush our teeth with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, rather than using the toxic fluoride laden, commercial toothpastes.
I lead an active life lifestyle, practice and teach Functional Fitness regularly, and get all the sunshine I can get.
Since our skin is our largest organ, which acts both a barrier and a sponge, I treat it with great respect by avoiding any commercial skin care products, shampoos, or the carcinogenic commercial sunscreens. Instead, I opt for organic cold pressed oils as my moisturizers, organic vegan shampoos, and natural vegan and chemical free deodorants.
In addition, I am devoted to detoxifying, and promoting cellular regeneration with my Full-Spectrum Infrared Sauna.
Every one of us today is exposed to heavy metals and toxic chemicals. An excellent method to detoxify and regenerate the body, particularly for slow metabolizers, is the full-spectrum infrared sauna. Its dry, warming energy is highly compatible with the human body. This powerful technology: a) heats the tissues several inches deep to enhance metabolic processes; b) promotes the micro-circulation – which is essential for the natural cellular regeneration process, and c) reduces chronic inflammation, which is the root cause of major chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart conditions, and cancer.
Last but not least, many of us often make references to Karma, but few understand the deep meaning of it, and the essence behind the word.
Conscious living requires a degree of selfless and ascetic acts, in order to promote a greater good, of which the individuals who sets the actions in motion, is often the final beneficiary of its results.
All forms of lives on our planet are interconnected through energy. As my family has evolved and embraced a vegan lifestyle, we discovered not only a greater understanding of all forms of life, their intelligence, and their importance and independence of us on our planet. As a result we were able to reap the benefits of their unconditional love, as well as reclaim our own health, and vitality!
It took me years of undoing the mistakes, misunderstandings, and misguided poor choices, which are often promoted by the Factory Farm industry, to achieve this level of insight, and introspective connection with our fellow planet cohabitants. Through kindness, consciousness, and selfless acts, we were finally able to achieve Harmony, and understand the true meaning of Karma.
Health, Happiness, and Harmony!
