Considering that many woman come to me with issues relating to their cycle or digestion (bloating-feeling sluggish and even moody) I tend to have a few go-to’s that I rely on.

By using castor oil packs, the flow of lymph is increased throughout the body. This helps to speed the removal of toxins surrounding the cells and to reduce the size of swollen lymph nodes
 
If you feel any kind of internal stagnation : it’s time to support your lymph. So often we want to go straight DETOX but we skip the lymph -we live in a sitting society that no longer moves in the ways we once would if we were more connected to nature

I live in a body that feels like it’s being assaulted when encountering toxins.


Particularly those with toxic scents.

When I enter any new enclosed space my radar is always up.

Will there be toxic air fresheners?
Will the bedding be covered in toxic fragrance?
Will the trash be lined with ‘scented’ bags?
Will there be perfume scented candles burning or incense?
Will the floor have been mopped with chemicals?
Will there be natural soaps available to use or scented toxic ones? 
Will the dishwasher have used non toxic detergent so there are no chemicals on the dishes I use to eat or drink from?
Will there be cat dander or litter and if so, how long will I have to be in a closed space with those things -will they affect me? Can I open the windows or will it be warm enough...

In this episode, I'm dishing out some important deeper health connections in light of the epidemic of NSAID use in this country. Folks, we have an inflammation problem but not a figuring out why solution (for the most part).

Listen to Episode #66: NSAIDs deplete glutathione (+what's up with NAC) : Find A Joy To Be Me on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or Spotify

The sluggish bile connection to slow metabolism

Bile acts like Pac-Man in the liver and intestines where it gobbles up fats, heavy metals, pesticides, unwanted bacteria, and numerous other chemicals that can cause problems in the digestive tract.

Bile is a digestive fluid created by your liver and stored in your gallbladder. Bile is important in digestion and absorption of fat in the small intestine.

If your body has sludgy bile your mood will suffer. You can even become constipated and anxious!

Bitter foods, like my current obsession, radicchio; help you digest your food. This is important because if you don't digest well you don't benefit from the good real food you just ate.

BITTER stimulates your liver to produce BILE.

Bile helps your body break down the healthy fats you eat so you can readily absorb them as well as your fat soluble vitamins.

I love to pair bitter foods with meals that I know have a fair amount of fat, like my chicken salad that has quite a bit of mayo AND some additional olive oil.


Bile secreted by your...
