Do you suffer from constant feelings of OVERWHELM?

Uncategorized May 19, 2021
 

Overwhelm is a common feeling, for many Mums & Dad. 

Overwhelm happens when you lack the POWER to meet the DEMANDS of the challenges in your life. Maybe you lack the resources - whether it's mental, emotional, or physical - to be able to meet the demands of the challenges in your life. Challenges aren’t necessarily bad, but when you’re constantly trying to climb out of the pit of overwhelm, it can really bring you down.

What I want to do is help you to drop down out of OVERWHELM and get into FLOW. 

The only way we're going to do that is to equip you with more capacity - or more POWER - so that you can be able to meet the demands of the challenges in your life. 

 

How To Increase Your Power

Exhaustion and Low Energy: The Key Lab Tests To Determine The Causes

Uncategorized May 12, 2021

Feeling exhausted all the time isn’t normal, no matter what anyone says!

In this article, we’ll share why most professional working Mummas, and even their doctors, can miss the root cause for exhaustion and low energy. “

 

When Your Doctor Says: “Everything’s Fine”

When Mums “on-the-go” have low energy or even find themselves in a state of exhaustion, they often try to ignore it.

“Power through” becomes their new mantra and over time they can experience a downward spiral that leaves them feeling flat and fatigued, where work becomes a struggle, and spending time with their kids becomes a chore.

At this point, they may consult their doctor or have tests run on the thyroid or iron levels only to be told that “everything’s fine”. 

But the truth is, feeling exhausted all the time can be a real red flag that something is off - and what most doctors miss is that it’s linked to adrenal issues,...

How Toxins Screw Up Adrenals/Insulin

Uncategorized May 05, 2021
 

Feeling sluggish and dealing with brain fog can wreck even the most competent working Mum’s day!

But instead of piling on the caffeine and getting up earlier to do more-- understanding the toxin-hormone connection can help clear the fog for good.

A 7-Day Juice Fast Ain’t Going to do Nothing

When Mum’s are feeling low-energy, sluggish, and foggy, they usually blame their bodies - or the kids! -  for not being able to “keep up the pace”.

Often they will turn to stimulants, try getting up early, or maybe even flirt with juicing in an attempt to be more clear-headed.

But what they don’t realise is that they are most likely carrying a very heavy toxic burden zapping their energy -- which isn’t their fault!

We are all exposed to so many toxins every day.  In fact, in the past 100 years, our environment has become more toxic than ever and these toxins get trapped in our organs and especially our cells.

And your cells are what really...

Low-Histamine Bliss Balls

Uncategorized Apr 29, 2021

There's no easier snack than bliss balls! This recipe uses carob powder, which is sweet in taste, so you don't need to add any extra sweetener to the mix. Carob is also a good substitute if you are very sensitive to caffeine (yes there are some poor souls who even struggle with cacao/chocolate!) or if you are on a low-histamine diet and want a bit of a 'chocolatey' hit, this one's perfect! 🙂

Makes: 26 balls

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup macadamias
  • 1 cup quinoa flakes
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut
  • ¾ cup carob powder
  • ¾ cup apple sauce
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ tsp salt

DIRECTIONS

  • Place macadamias in a high-speed blender and blend until they resemble bread crumbs.
  • Add all remaining ingredients and blend until you have a dough that holds together well when you roll a ball.
  • If it's too dry, add some water (1 tbsp at a time); if it's too wet, add more oats or coconut.
  • Pop in the fridge to set.

Why Stress Breaks Down The Gut

Uncategorized Apr 28, 2021
 

Dealing with constant stress is no fun! And working Mumma’s have an intense amount of it!

When that stress comes with bloating, stomach pain, and runs - it should be a major wake-up call!

There are reasons why Working Mummy overwhelm and tummy troubles go hand in hand with chronic stress. And in this article, we’ll share how stress breaks down the gut and what to do about it.

 

How Coping Habits in Times of Stress Wreak Gut Havoc

Normally when mothers are feeling stressed, the last thing on their mind is protecting or taking care of their gut health-- or even just doing self-care.

And it’s no wonder -- because the message working women get is to “power through”, “keep working”, and “just do it” - and almost always, put the kids first, and themselves last. 

But the truth of the matter is stress isn’t just bad because it makes us feel out of control, it has a direct biological impact on how well your gut functions....

Finding the Root Causes of Adrenal Fatigue

Uncategorized Apr 21, 2021
 

Being in a state of burnout can drain the joy out of life…

But there’s no need to grin and bear it!

In this article we’ll share why so many working mothers are feeling burned out, overwhelmed, and irritable (aka snappy at the kids and the partner!) and how the root causes of ADRENAL FATIGUE could be to blame.

 

Why Your Conventional Doc Won’t Test Your Stress Hormones

So many women are stuck in the “rat race” of what’s commonly called adrenal fatigue.

Instinctively women - especially mothers! - can feel when they are in “burn out mode”...but that’s where their instincts end and their desire to “get things done”, at work and in the home, takes over.

So first it’s important to understand the concept of adrenal fatigue. The adrenals are the glands responsible for secreting hormones such as cortisol, DHEA, adrenaline, and epinephrine. The term adrenal fatigue is a little bit of a misnomer-- it's more...
