These 5 Supplements Saved My Life
These 5 Supplements Saved My Life

Just a few years ago I was taking numerous medications and at an all time low in my life. I had a medication for depression, anxiety, migraines, and insomnia. I started to wonder if these medications were exacerbating my conditions and/or interacting with each other. While I felt “ok “ many things in my life were falling apart. I had lost a job, which made my mental health worse, as you can imagine. I was rekindling a relationship with someone who was toxic for me. Physically, I was a wreck. Despite being on prophylactic medications and abortive medications for migraines…


I attribute my intake of Host Defense mushrooms supplements to be a key factor in avoiding catching COVID-19 as a nurse. I can't say enough about these supplements as well!


They say it takes 21 days to create a new habit, but is that realistic? If you think about it, our habits shape our lives. According to an article on Psychology Today, it might take longer than 60 days to create or change a habit! In the realm of an entire lifetime, +/- 60 days is not that much time at all. You could potentially change 6 habits a year if you truly wanted to. Want to stop cussing? Want to quit smoking or drinking? Want to eat healthier? You can start by changing the habit, behavior or routine. Habits…


In a previous post I wrote about Practical Ways To Use the Four Agreements, which was based on Toltec principles. We have lost so much wisdom over the millennia that had been crucial to the well-being of human kind since people began to congregate together. Many ancient cultures did not focus primarily on the emotion of happiness itself, but rather living a meaningful life. They did focus on strengthening their character, which appears to have played a big role in overall happiness.

From Greek to Native American cultures and ancient civilizations hidden from history, we can learn vast amounts of…

Feel Your Best

It’s that time of year again. Typically, most are consumed with getting gifts and taking care of everyone else during the holidays. There is no harm in treating yourself a bit during this hectic time. These are some new ways to keep your mental and emotional health thriving. Do not think of it as being selfish. Rather, consider it as looking after your own emotional, psychological needs and well-being. Self-care is essential to feeling your best and functioning at an optimal level. Think of it as a bonus gift to your kids, because you are being the best parent you…


Most of us, at some point in our lives, start to question our purpose or mission here on Earth. Oftentimes we are encouraged to follow a certain path in life that might not be our own. Have you ever wondered if you are following your true calling or “passion”? If you were aware of your passion and followed it, what possibilities would that open for you? More freedom? More love? More money? More fulfillment in life?

One of the best things you can do for yourself is to discover what your true passion or passions are. This might sound like…


CDC — Corona Virus

In the wake of the recent events in our country and around the world I thought I’d create a post to help everyone boost their immune systems and maintain it. I will pose some general information, some tried and true tips, as well as some new ways to increase your immunity.

Immunity is “the ability of an organism to resist a particular infection or toxin by the action of specific antibodies or sensitized white blood cells.” The immune system is not a single thing to improve, it is a finely tuned process of things. To function at optimal levels, it…


Now let me clearly say that you WILL NOT be happy all day, every day for the rest of your life. As we all know, being happy 24/7 is impossible. You can, however, be happy most of the time with some conscious effort. There are things that happy people do a little differently than the rest of us.

First and foremost you might want to start by figuring out what makes you truly happy. For some it might be spending time with their family, while for others that could send them into a deep depression! Think back to when you…


We all have stress right? Some of us more than others. Not all stress is bad, but for the most part, the stress I will be talking about in this post can be devastating. According to The American Institute of Stress, there is acute stress, chronic stress, eustress and distress. Research has show that somewhere between 75–90% of most illnesses that people go to the doctor for are caused by stress. Here are some examples of each type of stress.
