LIVING WELL

For the most part, all my life I’ve been consumed with living the best life I could. I started cooking around the age of eight, and baking whole grain organic breads, when organic was pretty much unheard of in the 70s, and loved eating raw veggies, and fruits, not candy like most kids, weird….I know!

I have been hired by people from all over the world to cook for them, and their family’s, and I was always having to cook at least three different diets at the same time, and then one day I cooked for a family of 18, for their blood type. The mom and dad were doctors, MD, and Naturopaths, which was the beginning of a new way of looking at food for me.

Just think about it……on a cellular level, food is medicine, and each one of us is each made of a different chemical makeup , depending on our ancestry, and one person can eat wheat, when the other might get severe stomach issues with it. It’s all chemistry.

“Eat Right For Your Blood Type,” is the book I had to read before I cooked for this family, that changed how I look at food…so check it out! “Wheat Belly” is another book that has great information about out gut.

Juicing has always been a staple in my life, since I was 18, living in Coconut Grove, Fla. There was a great little juice bar called “The Last Carrot,” which I rode my bike to every day, sometimes twice a day. Juicing made me feel great, and I continue, to do it regularly. I truly believe that juicing, for your blood type, can help, if not cure; allergies, diabetes, fibromyalgia, inflammation, obesity, along with a lot of other raging aches and pains. Of course this is not to say this can “cure” any of the above, but it makes perfect since, that if you’re putting exactly what your body was designed to run on in it, then you’d be the specimen of good health.

The extracted juice from vegetables and fruits is a highly concentrated source of super cleansing vitamins and nutrients for your body. The juice is quickly assimilated by your digestive system, requiring almost no digestive action. For this reason, you will feel an instant “high” when drinking a glass of fresh juice much quicker than if you eat the whole fruit. Moments after the nutrients and enzymes go to work, it creates internal rejuvenation. The nutrients speed up the biological process of detoxifying the dead and decaying cells and washes them away. The juice then accelerates the building of new cells. When the toxic waste that has been blocking cellular oxygenation and nourishment are washed out, then the juices stimulate metabolic and cell-rebuilding functions.

Having said this…wouldn’t you like your cells to feel like this?!?!

Paradise Wellness Program

I have designed a week long detox-juice fast, which can be tailored to your blood type, and includes other kinds of healing arts as well. You can come here, to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to a beach house, or I can come to you, wherever you are in the world. It’s what I do. Here are some of the other things we do, which work well in conjunction with the juicing; yoga, herbal teas, body scrubs, massage, reflexology, Body Talk, Epson Salt baths, body brushing, aromatherapy, meditation, Infrared Therapy, smudging, chakra balancing, aroma therapy, micro current, and other healing modules.

If you are interested in the week, four days or more, we can juice, or eat healthy nutrient dense food. If we juice, there’s an easing back into raw foods day, then cooked foods day. The afternoon before the fast, there’s a light snack in the afternoon, then a light Organic Gourmet meal that night. Everything I give you is “Organic.” I don’t want to toxify you with pesticides, antibiotics, and growth hormones with conventional fruits and vegetables, while trying to detox you!! The teas and whole foods are Organic as well as the oils in the aromatherapy, and massage oils.

 There will be other certified staff, besides myself, doing the body work. If you don’t want the body work, then I can just do the juicing. Since we need all the help our lymphatic systems can get, I have found that the body work has worked well with moving the toxins out of the body in conjunction with the juicing.

I truly feel that this is one of the reasons I’m here…to help you learn, and become the healthiest person, you want to be…but remember….it’s up to you to take this home with you and walk the walk of true health. You can do it!!  It’s like making an investment in your future.

Live Well,
