Are you feeling the power of the new moon, the solar eclipse and the summer solstice? It can be overwhelming at times. But in this weeks episode I break it down into the astrological influences, the nature influences and the spiritual influences to help you put it to maximum use in your life. This energy will be lasting all month, so take advantage! Use the extra light in your life to be productive and propel yourself forward!

 

I have included this week a special channeled message from Orion surrounding this energy of the summer solstice. Check it out on YouTube

This week’s guest is David Krantz a certified Epigenetic Coach.

This week joining me to discuss epigenetics, precision wellness, and what it could mean for feeling your best more of the time, is David Krantz a coach specializing in using genetics and epigenetics to dial in personalized nutrition and lifestyle strategies.

 

In biology, epigenetics is the study of changes in gene expression that do not involve alterations in the actual DNA sequence itself. In this week’s discussion with David, we are going to explain more about what epigenetics means for wellness, treating illness, and how you can influence your genetic expression every day.

 

We also dive into nutrigenomics, which is how food can influence genetic expression. Your unique DNA blueprint has a huge influence on how you experience your everyday life. What these two topics bring to the table is the empowerment for you to choose how you think, what you expose yourself to, and how you approach your wellness. Are you predetermined and powerless to be the combination of genes your parents passed on to you? Or are you empowered and ready to change how those genes are expressed to enable your life to be full, energetic, and healthy?

 

Tune in. Get all the juicy details. And decide for yourself!

This week I have a guest with me!

This week I welcome back Stephanie May, BA, LMT, CPT, CRT joining me to discuss common-sense cleaning with natural products. We will dispel some myths that are being perpetuated in the media and give you some actionable tips you can start using today. Join us today to learn how you can keep your spaces clean and support your immune system without toxic chemical cleaners.

 

Here is the excerpt from Stephanie’s newsletter discussing essential oils for cleaning:

When it comes not just to cleaning, but to boosting immunity in general, I like to use the following essential oils or foods as topicals.

Melaleuca oil (aka Tea Tree Oil) is one of my all-time favorite oils to use for a plethora of reasons. To me it is God’s gift to man. It is a natural anti-fungal, antiseptic, stain remover, bug repellent, astringent, fabric refresher, etc. It can be used for so many things. It does need to be diluted as it is very potent, but when used as a spray, and/or in combination with other oils, it is just as effective.

Lemon (or other citrus) is also a natural disinfectant, hence why it is used in so many cleaners. Citric Acid is very effective. Likewise, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) is great for boosting immunity and the colder winter seasons.

Lavender is also amazing. Not only is it great for relaxing (and therefore good for stress), it is also a very effective degreaser and cleaning agent. Additionally, lavender is a natural antiseptic and anti- inflammatory. Some of its other many uses are for burns, bug bites, in baths, and in humidifiers.

Ginger is also a very popular as a food and oil both. As a powder it can be used as a topical paste and as an oil in soaks or baths. It aids in digestion which helps boost your immunity because most of your immune system lies in your gut. Ginger is also beneficial for inflammation and detoxing the body and tissues which explains why you may be seeing it included in more and more supplements these days, especially joint supplements.

Turmeric, like its 4 friends mentioned previously, is a miracle worker. It has incredible healing properties by being a natural anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory agent as well. Combined with ginger and omegas, it is great for healing injuries and likewise natural pain relief. I love putting it in my baths and making pastes with it also.

This week’s guest is Marianne Schneider from Reiki Tahoe & 5th Element Healing.

This week I joining me to discuss the energy of the heart space and the benefits of finding the energy of coherence is Marianne Schneider.

Our heart space in the bridge between the spiritual and physical realms. It is the area of our body where we integrate the two realms for manifestation and understanding. Through the heart, we have the ability to improve the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of our health. Many of us have built walls around this area to protect ourselves from the challenging aspects of human life. Today we are going to encourage you to open up and let go, to grow, and allow the love to shine through. Tune in and get all the juicy details.

Welcome back to Light Body Radio!

This week I have a special treat! My good friend and colleague, Julie Ford, and I got together to bring you a special episode on “Navigating the New Normal”. As we all adjust to the dynamic that COVID-19 has brought upon us, we talk about how to find our grounded calm, acknowledge and move through grief and so much more! Join us this week for a lively conversation and take away some tools you can use today!

In today’s show, we offer you something to ponder, to practice and to play with.

To ponder:

“One day when you wake up, you will find that you have become a forest. You have grown roots and found strength in them that no one thought you had. You have become stronger and more beautiful, full of life giving qualities. You have learned to take all the negativity around you and turn it into oxygen for easy breathing. A host of wild creatures live inside you and you call them stories. A variety of beautiful birds rest inside your mind and you call them memories. You have become an incredible self sustaining thing of epic proportions. And you should be so proud of yourself, of how far you have come from the seeds of who you used to be.”

– Nikita GillYou Have Become a Forest

 

Practice -

  1. Honor and mourn/acknowledge the loss of OLD Normal

  2. Be open to the possibilities and ways to thrive in NEW Normal

  3. Choose to take small, do-able steps toward creative solutions in NEW Normal.

The meditation that I led us through - at min 26:30 - 32:00. It's a beautiful 5 1/2 minutes. So CALMING AND GROUNDING!

Play with-

Step 3 - creative solutions- Make it FUN!

Have a dance party! Movement is GROUNDING!

Our topic this week is Spring! Yay! What are the energetics of spring? how can we integrate the energy of spring into our lives?

 

Spring brings with it

  •  The power to heal

  • New Birth, transmutation

  • New endeavors open up

  • The spirits of nature awaken and become more tangible to us

  • Change is stimulated, movement is stimulated

 

It might be a good idea to go back and listen to the Winter episode to reflect on how far you have come and to put Spring progress into more perspective.

In celebration of the completion of my functional medicine training, I wanted to bring you an in-depth examination of the difference between functional medicine and allopathic medicine.

I also wanted to illustrate how medical intuition & energy medicine can be complementary to your healthcare approach.

Today I cover the 5 tenents of functional medicine…

    • Functional Medicine views us all as being different; genetically and biochemically unique. This personalized health care treats the individual, not the disease. It supports the normal healing mechanisms of the body, naturally, rather than attacking disease directly.

    • Functional Medicine is deeply science-based. The latest research shows us that what happens within us is connected in a complicated network or web of relationships. Understanding those relationships allows us to see deep into the functioning of the body.

    • Your body is intelligent and has the capacity for self-regulation, which expresses itself through a dynamic balance of all your body systems.

    • Your body has the ability to heal and prevent nearly all the diseases of aging.

    • Health is not just the absence of disease, but a state of immense vitality.

I also talked about the difference between healing and a cure.

And finally, I gave a brief intro to medical intuition.
