What is Candida?

Unfortunately, today many Americans have very low immune systems and acidic bodies. Candida isn’t bad in it of itself; in fact, it is always around to help the body. Candida eats waste laying around in the body: toxins and food build-up that the body (particularly, the liver) hasn’t had a chance to deal with yet. However, this “candida employee” comes at a cost: it loves sugar and demands to be fed either with sweets or processed carbs; hence, it is behind many sugar cravings. Candida emits major gas as it eats—this equates to brain fog or feeling drunk, body aches, belching, flatulence or bloating, either intestinal or all over (I felt like I looked puffy or had the texture of a mushroom). So by hiring candida, the body gets some waste cleaned up, but it pays a price. … More What is Candida?

It’s official, I’m no longer an atheist.

Yesterday, after almost six years of silence, I told my story to a group of people for the very first time. As a former atheist, I came out of the “spiritualist closet”.
The story of how a lifelong atheist stumbled upon enlightenment and spirituality, because of the Equilibrium Diet has been a heavy story to carry—it was a journey through angels, demons (all self created, of course), and awakening that destroyed logic and shattered my atheistic reality.
I am not going to rehash the whole thing here (stay tuned for a highlight video next week), but I had to majorly, MAJORLY conquer some fear to stand in front of everyone yesterday. I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place when it was over. It went very well and I am so glad and relieved I shared it. Here’s why… … More It’s official, I’m no longer an atheist.

Fast, easy, natural weight loss that stays off!

I remember looking in the mirror before that summer of 2010 and dreading the thought of having to wear a swimsuit, let alone a bikini. I had tried dieting a bit to lose weight, had tried some low-calorie diets and exercise; but no matter what I seemed to do, I still looked puffy and I didn’t lose any weight. I didn’t feel sexy – I felt frustrated.

Later that summer, when I set out to find equilibrium health, weight-loss found me. … More Fast, easy, natural weight loss that stays off!

Are you Nutritionally Bankrupt? I was…

Nutritional Bankruptcy occurs when the costs of operating the body and digestive processes exceeds the nutrients derived from foods consumed for extended periods of time.
          I was an economist surviving through life on sugar, fast food and caffeine in 2010. My husband got really sick and everything changed. I discovered we were both nutritionally bankrupt and that each of us is totally and 100% responsible for our own health.
          My husband and I inched our way out of nutritional bankruptcy over the next several years and we learned a TON and realized that health – vitality – is our natural state as living beings. That being said, the #1 way you can reclaim the vitality that is your birthright is through diet. … More Are you Nutritionally Bankrupt? I was…

How I Beat Chronic Fatigue Naturally in less than 3 months

In 2010, I’d lived with chronic fatigue for over two years, my husband had lived with prostatitis for almost 5 years. I was sleeping 12 hours a night, taking a 2 hour nap during the day and I still never felt rested. It seemed like I woke up just as tired as when I went to bed. After two years, it was beginning to get depressing – I was just SO tired all the time. Back then I was in my early 20’s and they weren’t exactly roaring, if I were a car, I’d probably have been some 1970’s slow-moving clunker.

And I know I wasn’t the only one, I know countless women with “Hashimotos” (thyroid imbalances) suffering the same levels of exhaustion. … More How I Beat Chronic Fatigue Naturally in less than 3 months

How I beat candida naturally in less than 6 months

In 2010, I’d lived with chronic fatigue for over two years, my husband had lived with prostatitis for almost 5 years. We both were on antibiotics twice a year for “sinus infections” and we survived on sugar, wheat and caffeine. Back then, we were two former Division I college athletes in our early 20’s, and yet we were tired, run down, and getting sick all the time.

Today, exactly six years later, we have two energetic toddlers and we are both healthier and more rested than we were six years ago. Actually, today we are healthier than we have been in our entire lives. . … More How I beat candida naturally in less than 6 months

What Happens on the World’s Most Efficient Diet?

When we get healthy, when we decide we are worth the investment of the highest quality lifestyle on the planet, shit changes really fast. I got physically healthy. Over those first six years I detoxed all the candida, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, seasonal allergies and sinus infections, and I eliminated every single health issue I had ever had and felt GREAT while doing it. (Granted there were a few rough patches of detox but in general I had more energy, a stronger immune system, and was way happier than EVER before). I had a very sudden spiritual awakening; I guess you could say I detoxed the atheist too! When you get healthy, it is just the natural state of things, there is no stopping it! And I then had to learn all about surviving and managing the world as an “empath”— and we are all empaths to some extent; some of us are more open to the idea than others but we are ALL empaths. … More What Happens on the World’s Most Efficient Diet?

How Economics Saved My Life

We were pill-popping, fast food eating standard Americans so when the medical community struggled to diagnose and help either one of us, I started looking for my own answers. This is how economics saved my life and just possibly many others too. I started asking the simple questions I would in any economic situation or potential research question. I asked “Why—why is the world this way?” … More How Economics Saved My Life
