A collection of tips & tricks that have best helped my clients and I revive our health, mindset, & expression
In my last post, I shared how to identify that you may be experiencing chronic inflammation. When left unattended to it can exacerbate symptoms creating an extremely uncomfortable experience in your body making it difficult to live your everyday life.
Remember inflammation is necessary and a natural sign that your immune system is working, however, when it turns into chronic inflammation it can lead to serious health concerns such as heart disease, periodontitis (inflamed gums), cancer, ulcerative colitis, asthma, depression and more.

Celery juice: This healing tonic has made the media thanks to Medical Medium sharing his followers' testimonies and insight into this healing herb - YES celery is actually an herb, not a vegetable! As Anthony explains, celery contains sodium cluster salts which are a subgroup of sodium that helps kill various pathogens and diffuse the...
There are a lot of markers of health that are important, but if you want to simplify your focus to reduce overwhelm - reducing inflammation is the place to concentrate!
One way to look at inflammation is to think of it like a fire in the body.
If you have a fire in your house, do you finish folding the laundry before you put it out? Or do you drop everything you’re doing to make sure it’s put out and everyone is safe?
Most likely you chose the latter, and that is exactly what your body does when inflammation is present. Inflammation diverts precious energy and resources away from healing other parts of your body.
Inflammation and I have had quite the journey over the years and it’s so important to me because it’s a root cause of dis-ease and can significantly reduce the quality of life when it goes unchecked or unmanaged for too long.
“The prevalence of diseases associated with chronic inflammation is anticipated to increase...
Seriously, if you’ve been:
Then it’s time to quiet the noise on the $4.2 trillion wellness industry and learn how to listen to your body as the best guide for what to eat, how to move, and so much more. Stress and inflammation are at the root of dis-ease in the body. When they are present in the body it distracts resources that could have been utilized for healing. It’s one thing when this is a short-term situation, however, the vast majority of humans today experience chronic stress which wreaks havoc on your body on a cellular level.
The holidays and New Year can bring forward literally ALL the things we may have been avoiding throughout the year. No matter what’s true for you this time of year, I challenge you to utilize one or multiple of the following tips so that you enjoy your experience regardless of what it looks like this year for you.
Time is the most precious currency we have. I wasted years reliving past stories, negative thought patterns, & believing I didn’t fit in anywhere. Even if you are currently going through challenging times, how can you challenge your mind to find joy and things to be grateful for.
Here are some of my favorite tips to help you do just that:
Drink extra water. The holidays have an abundant...
Morning meditation, movement, staying hydrated, journaling, and eating a diet rich of fresh whole foods are all great ways to reduce the overall burden and stress has on the mind and body. However, what do you do if you’re currently in a massive life transition where everything is in flux, or you’re working 60+ hour weeks?
One of the biggest areas I work with clients around is reducing stress during transitional periods in their life, and that starts with awareness. Awareness is a topic I have shared many times here on J’adore this year because when we have awareness, we are at choice.
We are ALWAYS at choice, however, sometimes the negative automatic patterns we’ve been using to cope with a situation makes us feel captive to them rather than feeling empowered to make a positive change.
While the present scenario might not be able to change drastically in the moment, we can drastically shift our perspective and the emotional stress our current reaction to a...
There’s no denying it, non-dairy alternatives aren’t the same as their dairy-counterparts. Not in texture or taste, but that’s okay - they aren’t made from dairy! The main perk of these products is that they don’t create a reaction in the body for those of us intolerant to dairy.
While many dairy lovers (all personal responses I’ve heard) scoff at nut milk alternatives, quite a few have fallen in love with oat milk. It offers a much creamy texture than almond milk and has a subtle sweet nutty taste.
DIY Oat Milk is great for two main reasons:
Point two is worth expanding on, but first, recipe time.

I will start this blog off by saying there are a lot of talented craft cocktail makers out there and I am not particularly one of them. However, I have been told I make a delicious old fashion that even converted me over to loving whiskey a few years back!
I’ll predominantly stick to my lane in health & life coaching, so I am here to make sure you stay as hydrated as possible while celebrating our beautiful country this week.
For these recipes, I chose to focus on using tequila, gin, and vodka but feel free to substitute your favorite spirit for any of the below recipes that make sense to you!
Over the last few years my body has become highly sensitive to alcohol and even one drink can leave me feeling hungover the next day. If alcohol no longer agrees with you or you choose to opt-out, you can always make the recipes mocktail style or add a few drops of CBD oil to add a subtle level of relaxation in.
While you do not have to completely cut out alcohol to be...
