Becoming pregnant might seem like a long road when the first several weeks of torture are upon you. Finding medication for nausea, headache and fatigue seems almost impossible especially late a night when symptoms are more frequent. In the drugstore every thing says, not recommended in pregnancy and consult your doctor before taking when pregnant. When carrying, it’s better to turn to a natural alternative that works. Let me show you how.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
Cinnamon Twig Decoction plus Peony
Cinnamon Twig Decoction plus Magnolia Bark and Apricot KernelAconite Accessory Root Decoction
Cinnamon Twig Decoction plus Kudzu Root
Half Cinnamon Half Ephedra 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.

As the season changes to winter, the air becomes filled with unwanted pathogens. Use Eucalyptus essential oil to help with transition into the colder months. Place two drops Eucalyptus oil directly onto the shower floor while you are showering. The steam from the water will create a natural diffuser for the Eucalyptus oil, leaving you with a clear, invigorated feeling. Or try diffusing 2 drops of dōTERRA Eucalyptus with 2 drops of Tangerine and 1 drop of Lime to promote clear airways and to fill your home with a relaxing aroma with the added benefit of uplifting your emotions and clearing your mind.
Do you ever experience anxious feelings during the winter months and holidays? dōTERRA’s new Magnolia Touch oil has a fruity and floral aroma that eases *anxious feelings and promotes relaxation. I personally love doTERRA Magnolia Touch and it’s light and sweet fragrance. Combined with Fractionated Coconut oil in a roll-on bottle, ’'s easily applicable when you are in need of uplifting.
“Apply to your wrists or bottoms of your feet to create feelings of calmness and relaxation during the hectic holidays. dōTERRA Magnolia Touch is nourishing to the skin, add it to your daily routine to help your skin feel moisturized and smooth. Offer this new oil as a gift to a loved one who may feel overwhelmed and needs comfort during a difficult time.”

Everyone always talks about how incredible it is to be in Aviation but nobody everyone will talk about how to get started. Let this be the post of all post that list my opinion about training for Corporate Flight Attendant training in 2018. If you like to see the world and travel in luxury, than keep reading. If you have been working in the service industry like yachting and find that you are at a dead end in your career, taking your career 50,000 feet might be the next step.
How Did I Get Started In Aviation?
My grandfather was a pilot back in WWII. He would tell me all about his war stories as I was growing up in Washington State. I didn't get to know aircraft until I started my career in the USCG at Air Station Opalocka Miami. I was an Airedale, a junior mechanic and the only female on deck among 150 men. Back in those days women didn't get much respect on the flight deck. Thought It was still a mans world back then, being the only female was the least of my worries, I just wanted to fly. I loved working on the Dolphin HHelicopters that went flew search and rescue missions over South Florida’s Beaches. I loved going up as the 'Duck' for swimmer training.
Even thought I went to medical school for Oriental Medicine my love for fly never went away. After my career on yachts and cruise ships I decided to make a big career transition and circle back around to aviation again. Living in Ft Lauderdale is the perfect stomping ground for getting back into aviation. South Florida is a popular destination for high net worth clients and there more private jet operators in Florida than in any other state.
Finding the right training program was a mission that I am going to save you from.
What's The Difference Between Corporate Aviation and Commercial?
There are major differences between flying on a Business jet and flying commercially. Business jet cabin attendants, focuses on five star silver service. They anticipating guest needs, being available at a moments notice while looking your best and being nurturing making every flying experience comfortable, safe and unforgettable. There are a handful of schools that provide training to get your foot in the door. Only one of them has 98% of their graduates flying. I'm going to give you what I know about each of them and my highest recomendation.
Beyond and Above is the oldest school in the industry. They run classes once a month at their location close to Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. Training takes place in the classroom with a few on location walk through. It's a one week course. yet there is no follow through to help graduates get placed on their first aircraft. This was the first course I took and felt that the information could be updated and improved with industry professionals who are directly affiliated with private jets to teach the course.
This training facility although very accessable for those living on the west coast, placement on aircraft is not guaranteed. I have followed a few of their graduates on IG. After attempting to communicate with them, I gave up when I never got a reply. LA is expensive no matter what kind of training you do. I think that school does well because it's THE training for private jet attendants on the west coast.
Business jet pilots get their in flight safety training to FACTs. Every year crew are required to do a reoccurant training. FACTs has great programs but none that are focused on service which is very imant skill for cabin attendants at entry level. FACTs is the most expensive training around and recommended to take once you are a solid cabin attendant with a charter or private company.
Flight Safety is semisimilar to FACTs training and is also very competitive. It's main focus is safety. It's more ideal to take this course as a reoccurant or to have the company you work for pay for the program. There is no sliver service or five star service training involoved.
If you want to take your service skills to the next level, Davichi is the training you want to have under your belt. This training course is the only Butler training course I have seen in Florida. It's a new school and they are adding courses and qualifications to their curriculum.
VVIPIntl Flight Attendant Training is by far the best training that I have experienced. VVIP is a new school and growing fast. Lauren Piers has been around business aviation all her life and has over 10 years flying on every type of business jet there is. I love VVIP because training take place in the field, VVIP gives you a resume template, resume writing coaching, professional head shots and more. VVIP is an agency that does everything they can to get you flying right away. Training consist of sliver service, crew management resources, on jet training, visits to local fix based operators, water safety, on site catering visit and catering all week. Simulated water ditching experience and special networking events. Lauren is personable, graceful and a strong business woman who has your best interest at heart. I love her and what she is doing for women around the world. Lauren provides top notch training. You will leave training with a team of sisters to help you get in the business from pre flight to post flight. A week after the training I was found myself busy fixing my resume and additional documents to send out to seveal companies I became familiar with through training. Within the first week I landed four flights with one of the worlds billion dollar company.
Are you ready to start your course? For 10% off, mention this blog to Lauren when you call VVIP.
A career in aviation gives me the flexibility to practice Chinese Medicine around the world and further develop my non for profit project. It gives me the capitol to live a comfortable lifestyle and give to humanity without limitations. Are you looking for that kind of freedom? You can book a call with VVIP and qualify for 10% of your training.
Now that you have a brief over view of the best schools in the country. I would love to hear your comments and suggestions.
Over the past few weeks I’ve taken a little hiatus out to Starke Florida. While my purpose is to plant the seed among country folk, I got to sit back and breathe in some fresh air. With every person I met, I learned a new story that reflected a lesson to learn from.
For the first time in never I met a bunch of real hunters who rise before dawn craving the rush to bring fresh deer meat home.
There was something even more special about my visit. It’s the time of year I decided to go that reminded me
of how meaning full Chinese Medicine is.
We experience the same cycles that occur in nature. You see Autumn follows on the tail of the harvest, signaling that it is time to prepare for winter. The sap of trees settles into the interior, sinking down toward the roots.
With Fall comes a sense of gathering in, stocking up, harvest time, mingled with a sense of loss as the light begins to fade and the air chills. It is a time to eliminate what is unnecessary and become aware of what is essential.
Optimal health, a shift in consciousness and how we look at what out most valuable asset is reminds me how special we are to live in this life.
Teaching doctors what health is and how to achieve it.
Reducing the amount of medication and eating more organic, walking among the trees and spending time in community. Gathering, sharing, laughing and enjoying the very essence of life.
Power of Autumn and the Organ that Represents it
The organ system that shares the power of this season is the Lung. Corresponding to the temperament of autumn, the Lung pulls in and refines the Qi, (energy) sending it downward to nourish our roots.
The skin also a reflection of the Lung protects against external invasion and safeguards internal resources. Since Autumn is a dry season, we need to protect ourselves from cold air evaporation of moisture from our skin. Moistening, softening, and nurturing foods for this time include white rice, white beans, pears, radishes, sea vegetables, potatoes, cabbage, turnips and parsnips.
Breathe oil supports and promotes respiratory health giving the lungs something to be happy about.
Breathe is a remarkable blend of essential oils including Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Melaleuca, Lemon, Cardamom, Ravintsara, and Ravensara.
Diffuse, inhale directly from palms, or rub on chest or feet when seasonal and environmental threats are high.
Use when outdoors to minimize the effects of seasonal threats.
Diffuse at bedtime for a restful environment.
Over the past week I grew a little attached to a new fall blend. 3drops of Vetiver, 4 wintergreen and 3 sandalwood in my hand with coconut oil to assist in grounding my emotions and keeping me aware while meeting with so many people.
Essential oils in every home is my life goal. Only now are doctors and nurses paying a little more attention to what is replacing a lot of the toxic medication our country is dealing with. I believe Mother nature will
win the battle that we have all been confused about.
Join me for more lessons on essential oils
Say ‘Bye Falecia’ to seasonal threats and work with me.
