  • The 5 Steps I took to Beat Bloat


    Hi friends!  I am so happy you are here, and researching ways to make your life easier and your health and wellness better.  I want to start off by telling you that I have literally been researching for over 17 years.  If you do not know me or my story, you can read more on my personal development blog called The Burned Hand.  <<< that is linked.  I started the blog as a way to handle all the thoughts that came with living with 7, yes SEVEN, invisible diseases.  My emotions were bad and my moods were a swinging, but at the time I had NO idea that it related to MY GUT health!!  Please read this in case you think I am crazy called New Year New Brain.  <<< linked

    I want to give you all the tools to help yourself based off my extensive research which literally took me years to compile all while using my body as the test ground.  I literally had NOTHING to lose.  So I tested every theory, every new lead, out on my body.  The first lead that really and truly helped me was my break-up with sugar and gluten.  <<< linked

    I have met many people who thought that I had some sort of willpower of STEEL.  What I learned specifically is how much we do not know about the food we are putting into our bodies.  I took out everything processed and learned how to live all while trying to regress my symptoms back to finding my first symptom.

    I want to show you what I did though…and the rest is outlined on the 4 Weeks to Wellness program.  <<< more info there

    1. Your pantry.  Get in there and look at things.  Is there anything you could throw out that has ingredients you don’t even know how to pronounce let alone know what they could be triggering in your body?  If the answer is yes, please throw some things away.  especially if any form of sugar is a first ingredient, which again, I talk about in my program.
    2. I started researching gut flora.  I am not going to lie, probiotics are a tricky little thing to get right and so is pH balance.  That’s why I knew I had to find JUST the right balance.  The system that was created by my company helped me tremendously because it included greens.  The greens are available in several countries, so you just have to use the drop down to find your country and see if they are shipped there.  Canada, USA, and Australia have them, but we do ship to other countries as well, so on this link here, use the drop down to find your country if you want to read more.
    3. I flushed my body using a process of the greens, the wraps, as well as something called dry brushing which can be found on my tip board for clients here.  << linked.
    4. I never ever gave up.  Not even when my research lead me to inconclusive results and thoughts of why am I doing this? Wait, i know the answer.  Because doctors gave up on me and I refuse to accept the alternative of prescriptions for life that could potentially damage my organs.  Yup.  That meant I said no to any and all drugs for fibromylagia.  You got it.  I went rogue!!!
    5. I knew that I needed to fight inflammation so I researched turmeric.  If you don’t know about the benefits, please read more on my healthy liquids board here.

    Again, I have done tons of research for you and looked up countless article and recipes.  I have included the links in my 4 Weeks to Wellness course as well as reading material for you that I created based off my research.  I created workbooks, journaling ideas and more!  If you have any questions, don’t forget you can PM our FB page here:  Vitalize You Wellness   <<< linked.

  • PS: Greens…probiotic, detoxifying alkalizer


    In this Product Spotlight of the Greens and Greens on the Go, I’ll cover the official It Works! product description, as well as my personal experience with the product.

    Before we get to the official description, I’ll mention that the formulation of Greens on the Go is the same as that of the Greens. One serving of the Greens is simply prepackaged onto little portable sleeves to make it easy to take them with you…to work, to restaurants, on trips, etc. So, when I refer to the the formulation and benefits of the Greens, it also applies to Greens on the Go.

    The official It Works! description

    • Detoxify, energize, and promote pH balance* within the body
    • Acidity-fighting magnesium and potassium blend
    • Cutting-edge probiotic** support for digestive health
    • 38 herbs and nutrient-rich superfoods
    • 8+ servings of fruits and vegetables in every serving
    • Free radical-fighting antioxidants***
    So what does that mean and does it work? Well we’ll leave the does it work for testimonials, some personal ones below, and some others on this site as we get them.  As far as what it does, well, in a nutshell, it’s a great product for overall health. Our bodies function better and fight off disease and infection better when they aren’t acidic, which is where the pH-balancing comes in. The antioxidants in the 8+ servings of 38 herbs, fruits, and vegetables aid in making us healthy.

    Personal Experience with Greens

    The following is based on my family’s use of the Greens. It is not the official word from It Works!. It is just my opinion and observation of results that we have experienced.
    My older daughter has mild to moderate seasonal allergies. She has been taking OTC allergy meds for a number of years from spring through fall. Of course, those meds don’t completely eliminate the sniffling, sneezing, and watery, red eyes, but when she is also taking the Greens daily, these symptoms are lessened to nearly gone.
    My wife used to get ill multiple times a year, mostly colds. Since she’s been taking the greens almost daily, she hasn’t been ill…in over a year. Any time she feels like something is trying to get her, she takes an extra dose and by the next day, she’s fine. She also gets the energy boost that the official description mentions.
    Our younger daughter also takes the Greens at the onset of a cold (which isn’t as infrequent as we’d like, but she is in middle school) and is usually able to shake it overnight.
    How do we use the Greens?  I occasionally dump a scoop or so into a meal I’m cooking for that boost of “green stuff” that most of us don’t get enough of daily. We make Greens smoothies. I mix the Greens with ProFit (another It Works! product) for a tasty post-workout drink.  We all also frequently mix a scoop or two into our water bottles that we take along when exercising…it provides a little flavor and helps with fighting the free radicals released during oxidation associated with exercise.

    Best Used Daily

    Boiled down, this is really 38 herbs, fruits, and vegetables turned into powder so it can be easily mixed into liquids and it’s one product we always have on hand and use pretty much daily because who really gets their daily recommended dosage of vitamins and minerals by eating actual fruits and veggies?
    pH-balance in the body plays a role in reducing the instance and seriousness of illness.
    probiotics** help food move through your gut by balancing the amounts of good and bad bacteria which has numerous benefits for gastrointestinal health among other things.
    antioxidants*** help prevent cell damage and destruction that occurs when oxidation in cells produces free radicals.
