Lately I’ve started working out.
Even though I feel better and look better, working out to achieve a health goal makes me anxious. In the past year I guess I have accomplished a lot of things.
In the past five months I’ve been restructuring my life’s intention. With more exams to take in the new year, that level of anxiousness can start to accumulate.
I’m a perpetual thinker and do’er. Sitting still waiting for life to happen isn’t my thing.
I’ve been learning to just trust the process and be in the flow.
When really I’m asking myself, when is the ‘Flow’ going to Flow faster.
In the past two months I’ve been entering into a new career path.
Something I just made up. Corporate Flying Acupunturist aka Holistic CFA(Corporate Flight Attendant).
Over the past 10 years I’ve lived at sea on yachts and treated several people with Acupuncture. Now I’m ready to take this experience 50,000 feet.
This has never been done before.
I know without a doubt that biggest decision makers in the world are heavy thinkers and A type personalities.
According to TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) Acupuncture yields significant results that promote and improve sleep, pain and relaxation.
The toughest battle is getting my foot in the door when the industry values beauty over brains. 🧠
Most recently, I treated two die hard professionals privately. Being in practice has never felt so good.
I combine essential oils and Acupuncture 🎋using a specific protocol and technique that essentially floats one’s ‘Zen’ state to a different dimension.
Though, there are many things that promote relaxation, one thing I found that really helps me stay motivated, is dōTERRA’s Cedarwood essential oil.
I massage one to two drops onto my chest to help maintain vitality throughout my day. I see it work in my private clients from around the world.
Did you know that dōTERRA Cedarwood is a great oil for promoting relaxation? 🏖
With properties that help to soothe the mind and body, the warm, woody scent of Cedarwood essential oil 🌱can create a relaxing environment when used topically or aromatically.
Most all my protocols consist of a face up and face down treatment. When face down I include cedarwood essential oil to the spine as they fit the tongue and pulse diagnosis.
The easiest way to get this oil in your system is to diffuse it.
After a long day, diffuse to create a calming environment or apply one to two drops to the bottom of your child’s feet to help soothe and calm them when they wake up frightened.
Not only is it used to help you have feelings of calmness💆🏽♀️, it also helps keep your skin looking healthy.
I also use this oil as apart of my facial routine by adding one to two drops to your facial toner or moisturizer to promote clear, healthy looking skin. I believe looking 20 at 40 has a lot to do with the decreased stress levels by using essential oils, frequently meditating and using natures essence.
Be encouraged to take on 2019 by being in the flow with me.
In Love & Optimal Health,
Many people dislike visiting their dentist, especially if they haven’t kept up with their brushing and flossing. Some even have dental anxiety and phobia. But there are other people who wish they could go yet can’t afford it. According to the CDC, 36% of adults have gone over a year without seeing a dentist. Prevention is cheaper than treatment.Read More

This week is the perfect time to celebrate all the gifts the earth has given us! One great gift from the earth is dōTERRA’s Cinnamon Bark essential oil. Cinnamon has a long history of culinary uses like, adding spice to desserts, entrees, and even hot drinks. That’s why it’s one of my favorite essential oils for the holiday season. (I probably say that with every essential oil)
Traditional Chinese Medicine uses Cinnamon (known as guÌ zhì) in about 10 patent formulas. This means that not only is cinnamon a great essential oil, but this herb has been use for thousands of years to improve immunity, head tension, menstrual support, increase sweeting, joint pain and digestion when used with other Chinese herbs.
Cinnamon Bark is well known for its use as a spice. Did you know when taken internally, supports healthy metabolic function and helps maintain a healthy immune system, especially when seasonal threats are high. Place 1 drop of dōTerra Cinnamon essential oil in hot water or tea and drink slowly to soothe your irritated throat or add one drop to two ounces of water and gargle for an effective mouth rinse before heading to bed.
Below are some wonderful and creative ways to include dōTERRA Cinnamon Bark in your favorite holiday dishes:
Chinese formula’s that include cinnamon are:
Cinnamon Twig plus Cinnamon Guì Zhī Jiā gui tāng
Cinnamon Twig Decoction

If you have never tried Acupuncture you might love❤️ making your green drinks like one.
The main question I ask my patients when learning about their eating habits is,
Do you drink greens drinks?🤷🏻♂️ And What do you put in them?🤷🏽♀️
Nutrition and The study of Chinese Herbs are very important parts of the five branches within Chinese Medicine. 🎎
In fact the food we eat have theraputic properties and can benefit the patterns of deficiency that present themselves when the body is out of balance. That’s what this movie Eating You Alive is about.
It blows me away that one Dr. 🧬 in this movie pulls out his perscription pad and instead of writing out a drug he writes out a smoothie formula! That’s exactly what I do and I see even my own families health change rapidly.
Have a look at my vblog about micronizing your fruits 🍎 and 🌽 for a morning drink.

When the holiday season hits I’m horrible at getting gifts. My love language is definitely not gifts.
