BONUS: Big lesson from the spring peepers! Why stress keeps you from fully expressing yourself and your true potential and what to do about it.
There was such a great response to the first video we did in West Virginia on "organic posture", that I thought I would give you some more insight on how to feel the "lightness" and "spring" that it creates!
Enjoy the video and let me know how you feel about this new concept in the comments below!

In addition to being one of my favorite things in the world to do, gardening in cool weather makes the most powerful foods on the planet! GREENS!!!
My mantra to all my clients and students is "More Green, Less Grain" because the bottom line is this…green food by its very nature is ANTI-INFLAMMATORY!
You CAN heal from serious degenerative disease as well as get rid of allergies, asthma, chronic pain, fatigue, colds, flu, bronchitis, and just about any dis-ease known to human kind with this powerful stuff!
Humor me and yourself for a week or so and eliminate all grains from your diet and replace those calories with a dark green leafy salad (NO ICEBERG, OK?).
Get some mixed greens and some romaine and go to town!
Another way to flood your cells with these intense anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory alkaline nutrients is to juice them or put them in a green smoothie.
Here's a quick recipe even your kids will like!
Drink up and feel the POWER!!!! As your palate develops to really enjoy the taste of green food, you can cut back on the sweet stuff to lower the insulin response and you'll be AMAZED at the increased energy and vitality you feel!

6 Step Immune System Optimizer Plan
I got an interesting email from my sister last night about a relatively new allergy treatment (below) got me thinking about some awesome natural strategies that you can do to optimize your immune system for the "Cold, Flu, and Allergy Season" that lies ahead.
Steve- Have you heard of anyone ever using sublingual immunotherapy to treat allergies? I have a friend who has done research on it for her boys who have allergies to wheat, dairy, and others, and she wanted me to ask you if you are familiar with it or have any comments towards its use. -Susan
Hope these tips help!
P.S. I also LOVE the XCLEAR natural nasal spray. It's basically a saline wash spiked with xylitol which acts like a "detergent" in your sinuses…the allergens, and pathogens just slide off the slippery surface so they can't take hold and throw your immune system out of balance. GREAT for your "natural medicine cabinet" (we'll be talking about what else to have on hand next Tuesday night!
It seems every time I do a seminar and talk about nutrition, the whole concept of omega 3 fats brings up a lot of questions and comments.
So today I’m going to give you my take on the benefits of omega 3 fats when it comes to dropping pounds and doing it in a pain free way.
Heres’ the bottom line. Most Omega 3′s come originally from living GREEN FOOD and most Omega 6′s come predominately from the seeds of these living green foods called GRAIN!
So…here’s a question…How do you fatten a steer? GRAIN! That’ll get you a nice big, juicy, corn fed, marbled, inflammation bomb!
So then…what makes a leaner (and healthier) animal? GRASS!! That’s right…even grass fed beef is high in omega 3 fats. So it’s grass fed all the way if you choose to eat animal products.
And by the way…are YOU an animal and do you think YOU could become a “marbled” inflammation bomb by eating too much grain? Hmmmm…
And when you’re ready to kick your health and vitality up even another notch, you can just get ALL your anti-inflammatory, fat burning omega 3′s directly from GREEN FOOD instead of dealing with the meat at all!
You’ve got to eat a whole lot more of it to get the same amount of good omega 3′s you’d get from a wild salmon or grass fed steak but the bonus here is that you’ll be getting a ton of
(Yet another nod for the raw food diet!)
And when you eat with a “green not grain” intention, you’ll also be reducing your insulin levels which will tell your body to start burning fat instead of STORING fat!
So get ready to be amazed at how your fat (and especially your belly fat) starts melting away not to mention all the other “side benefits” of increasing intake omega 3 fats from plants like:
-lower blood pressure
-better skin and hair
-clarity of thought
-better FOCUS (yes, it’s a MUST for ADHD!)
-lower cholesterol and triglycerides
-better blood sugar balance
-and so, so, so much more!
So it’s GRASSES and GREENS…NOT GRAINS that keep you lean and vital. Choose local first and get it organic if possible and better yet…GROW YOUR OWN!
I’ll be back with Part 3 in a few days revealing key strategies to reduce levels of the most infamous hormone in human physiology that packs on belly fat, eats away at your lean muscle mass, and keeps you in “fat production” mode no matter what you do!
And a QUESTION for you…How are you getting YOUR Omega 3′s? Leave a comment here on the blog!
P.S. I’ve got a 10 minute video for you that explains this whole Omega 6 to Omega 3 fat balance thing in more detail that I took from one of our introductory mini boot camps. I was going to post it today but my power cord to my external hard drive went defunct and I can’t access my video. So stay tuned for that in a couple of days…it is THE most important nutrition concept that, once you understand it, can totally transform your nutritional health.
