Which magnesium should I take?

On the last post, we learned all about the benefits of magnesium, and just how many health concerns could boil down to a magnesium deficiency.  Now that you are on board, which magnesium should you take: magnesium salts, colloidal magnesium, ionic magnesium, chelated magnesium, topical magnesium?  Once you pick a type, which brand should you choose?  Is store-bought magnesium safe?  Is there anyone who shouldn’t take magnesium?

All of these questions and more are answered in my most recent blog post with Mommypotamus:

The benefits of magnesium

Magnesium is often called “The Magic Mineral” – it plays a crucial role in over 300 enzymatic reactions within the body, impacting everything from energy metabolism and stress management to hormone balance, detoxification, sleep, and the creation of proteins.

Unfortunately, according to the World Health Organization, only about 25% of Americans are consuming adequate levels of magnesium, but that’s only one factor contributing to what CNN calls the “invisible deficiency.”  The way we grow our food, our modern lifestyle and stress levels, and our reliance on medications and supplements have increased our demand for magnesium while simultaneously decreasing the availability of magnesium in our foods.

If you have issues with insomnia, muscle tension and cramping, migraines, stress, skin issues, hormone issues, energy, bone health, blood sugar issues, heart issues, or digestive issues, you don’t want to miss this post!

What is the safest sunscreen?

If you haven’t seen it in my list of in-person and online classes, I created a free homemade do-it-yourself sunscreen video and 8-page e-book all about sun health!  I am trying to get all of my how-to classes available online, and this was my first go at it.  It is in a super unique format, different from any other online class I have ever seen (and I have been in a lot of online classes, y’all), and so fun!  (You can go here to sign up for it for free).  But that’s not the point of this post!

This post is to let you know about my interview with Katie Kimball from Kitchen Stewardship (you might recognize her name from my previous guest series on her site about hormone balance), and how she and her family tried EIGHTY (!!!) different sunscreens to see which one she recommends for her family of husband and four kids.  We go over a TON of information about how sunscreen works, the chemicals in sunscreen and how they affect our health, how to find a safe sunscreen, and how to use sunscreen in a balanced way to still get the benefits of Vitamin D from the sun (I go over many more benefits from the sun in the free e-book that comes with the free online sunscreen course).  If you ever go out into the sun, you don’t want to miss this podcast and course:

LET’S GET YOU FEELING AWESOME SO YOU CAN DO AWESOME!!!!

How to embrace your authentic self

If you missed the video podcast interview of me on Weight Free Wellness about my personal healing journey, we talked about how one very crucial part of finding true wellness was my learning how to face my fears, embrace my authentic self (past, present, good, and imperfect), and really follow my dreams.  This part of my journey is why I am writing this right now, but it is also how I healed from many hurts from my past, how I learned how to forgive (myself and others), to choose the positive over the negative, and to really truly believe that the world is a wonderful place (it was a terrifying one before).  Without this part of my journey (that my health coach school Institute of Integrative Nutrition calls “primary food”), I would never have truly been healthy.  I may have been putting the right nutrients into my body (called secondary food by IIN), but I wouldn’t have truly been well.

I wasn’t in IIN at the time, but luckily the Universe brought me just the right messengers when I needed them the most.  I can trace the time where I found the ability to truly face my fears and accept myself completely to one moment: a children’s book reading with children’s author and illustrator Michelle Nelson-Schmidt.  I thought I was bringing my kids to a talk to help them be brave, but what really happened is the Universe brought me to a magical person with a magical message that would change my health, my personal life, and my career forever.  Five years later, I had the true pleasure of interviewing this same author who changed my life, and, because I share her message with all of my Hill College Holistic Wellness Pathway students, who continues to change the lives of not just children but also the lucky adults who hear her message day after day.  You do not want to miss her wisdom.

What is intermittent fasting?

I have always been pretty turned off by the idea of fasting once I finally woke up to the truth about the fallacy of counting and cutting calories.  I thought fasting was just another weight loss gimmick that eventually led to starvation mode and malnourishment, so I poo-pooed every time I heard someone mention fasting.

However, last year I joined health coach Ari Whitten’s Energy Blueprint program to learn more about our circadian rhythm and how to use sleep timing and food to find create more energy in our cells.  His 4 free videos were so jam packed full of research that I knew the program was something I couldn’t miss.  Imagine my surprise when he had an entire module of research on the benefits of daily intermittent fasting!  Intermittent fasting is very different from extreme fasts, and it is actually part of how our body’s internal clocks work.

Click here to read my co-authored post with Mommypotamus about intermittent fasting, what it is, why you should do it, and how to do it.

If you want to learn more about circadian rhythm, intermittent fasting research, or research-based ways on how to increase energy, check out Ari’s four free videos here.  His program is so super awesome I am even going to interview him on my podcast and write an e-book about herbs for energy for his course!  You won’t be sad you watched them.

Now it’s time to introduce you to the benefits of an amazing herb that is usually deemed a weed and destroyed with chemicals.  Ask anyone who knows me well and they will tell you I always root for the rebel underdog, so my love for the tenacious dandelion will be no surprise to them!

Not only is dandelion a great example of the payoff from never giving up, it is a lesson in generosity as well, assisting with health conditions like:

This tea recipe is inspired by an herbal tea I created that we call “Yummy Tea” at home because everyone, kids and adults alike, can’t get enough of it.  Not only is it yummy, but it is full of beneficial nutritive herbs, adaptogen herbs, and antioxidant herbs.  With the addition of yellow dock, this yummy nutritive tea turns into a yummy detox tea!

So, so far my blog has been pretty slim on the use of herbs, other than a brief mention here or there for hormone balance or blood sugar regulation.  I am going to start digging in to focusing on how to use herbs, both daily and acutely, for health and nourishment.

The first herb I am going to cover as a guest blog with Mommypotamus because it’s one of her favorites! Yellow dock root is an herbal ally worth considering if you’re looking for support with:

How to Balance your Hormones: Post 6

LET’S GET YOU FEELING AWESOME SO YOU CAN DO AWESOME!!!!

How to Balance Your Hormones: Post 6

I am so excited to tell you the fifth (AND BEST!) step for hormone balancing and harnessing your feminine powers with you!

In case you missed them, don’t forget to check out

Now on to Step 5!

This is my favorite part of this whole series, because once you have worked your way through the above steps, your energy should be optimized, your blood sugar should be regulated, your adrenal glands and thyroid should be rocking, and your liver should be a detox machine, allowing your hormones to be balanced.  And once your hormones are balanced, you get to unlock your feminine magic within your cycle.

Now, before I tell you about that magic and how you can align your life with your unique weekly powers, I have an introductory story to tell you that demonstrates how these powers can be used to our advantage.

When I first got into herbs, I thought they all hurt my kidneys.  I would get all excited about trying a new herbal infusion, try it for a few days, and then feel this slight pain in my kidney/back area.  I would immediately freak, stop taking the herbs, and then feel fine. I would repeat this same scenario a few months later.  (SPOILER ALERT: It wasn’t the herbs).

It turns out that the above scenario was me living in alignment with my weekly hormonal changes without even knowing it.  You see, each week we have a different combination of hormones that gives us a unique gift (if our hormones are in balance).  If we know what these gifts are, we can make them work for us each week (instead of working against us with PMS and other not-so-fun symptoms).

What was happening to me in the above story was my repeated willingness to try new things during the follicular phase, and the “kidney” pain I was feeling was me ovulating during the next phase of my cycle!  It wasn’t the herbs; I was just in alignment with my cycle!

Read how you can align each week of your life with the phases of your cycle and unleash your feminine magical powers by reading the whole post here:
