month one

In order to make an EASY transition to a healthier lifestyle, you want to replace items in your home that are exposing you to toxins EVERY SINGLE DAY.

You cannot live a 100% toxin-free life. You are exposed to air pollution, contaminated groundwater, and even harmful chemicals in stores and office buildings, but YOU control the products you purchase and bring into your home. One of the easiest things we can do is ditch and switch the products that we use every single day.

Most generic personal care and home care products are filled with harmful chemicals that cause a lot of damage to your body. These products contain ingredients that are carcinogens, asthma instigators, endocrine disruptors, and poisons. #NoThanks

Let’s get all those things OUT of your home and bring in the GOOD products that have SAFE ingredients that actually allow you to live ABOVE the wellness line. The Young Living Thieves line is the perfect way to ditch the YUCK and switch to the GOOD.

In order to cleanse the body and get rid of all the junk you have exposed yourself to over the years, treat yourself to a cleansing system. Young Living has a lot of great options for this, but let’s take a closer look at one simple system, the Cleansing Trio.

The Cleansing Trio Kit contains three products you need to cleanse your system, eliminate waste, and support normal liver function. Augmented with herbs that are rich in vitamins, minerals, and essential oils, the Cleansing Trio promotes energy and a sense of well-being. This kit includes ComforTone, Essentialzyme, and ICP.

Young Living’s Cleansing Trio is designed to be used as a short-term cleansing system. You can use this system for four to eight weeks and then you should discontinue the use of ComforTone. Avoid any refined sugar or processed foods to take your cleanse to a higher level.

Cleansing Trio Kit Item #: 3115

essentialzyme

Essentialzyme™ helps CHOMP everything up. Enzymes are proteins that control the speed of chemical reactions in your body. Without enzymes, you wouldn’t be able to breathe, swallow, drink, eat, or digest your food. Therefore, it is important to make sure you are getting the proper enzymes to break down food and improve digestion in the cleansing process. Are you eating a lot of Kefir, Bananas, Soy Sauce, Pineapples, Avocados, Bee Pollen, Papayas, Sauerkraut, Miso, Kiwi, and Tempeh? If not, then you better take Essentialzyme!

Essentialzyme™ is a bilayer, peppermint-coated caplet that combines pure essential oils, herbs, and plant-derived enzymes formulated to improve digestive health, enzyme activity, and pancreatic function while reducing pancreatic stress.

USAGE

Essentialzyme is a product that can be taken long-term. Take 1 dual time-release caplet 1 hour before your largest meal of the day for best results.

NOTICE

If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a health professional prior to use. Do not give this product to children under 6 years of age except under the supervision of a health professional. If discomfort persists, discontinue use of this product and consult a health professional.

comfortone

ComforTone aids in the elimination of waste products and gases in the colon. ComforTone capsules contain an effective combination of herbs and essential oils that support the health of the digestive system by eliminating residues from the colon and enhancing its natural ability to function optimally. It does this by supporting normal peristalsis which is what helps move everything through your bowels. It also promotes liver, gallbladder, and stomach health.

USAGE

Take 1 capsule 3 times daily. Drink at least 64 ounces of distilled water throughout the day for best results. This product contains Cascara sagrada bark so please make sure that you are following the directions carefully and only using this as a SHORT-TERM product.

NOTICE

This product is not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing or others who have a medical condition except under the direction of a physician. Children under 12 should not use this product. Discontinue use and consult a physician if you have or develop abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. Do not exceed recommended dosage. This is not for long-term use. It is not to be used as a weight loss product.

ICP

ICP™ helps keep your colon clean. It does this with an advanced mix of fibers that scour out residues. A healthy digestive system is important for the proper functioning of all other systems because it absorbs nutrients that are used throughout the body. A healthy digestive system means healthy emotions and a healthy immune system along with a lot of other things. Using this supplement is going to help get rid of all the toxic gunk sitting in your colon.

ICP contains ingredients such as psyllium, oat bran, and flax and fennel seeds to form a combination of soluble and insoluble fibers. Enhanced with a special blend of essential oils, the fibers work to decrease the buildup of wastes, improve nutrient absorption, and help maintain a healthy heart. ICP provides two grams of dietary fiber, one gram of soluble fiber, and one gram of insoluble fiber per serving.

USAGE

Mix 2 rounded teaspoons with at least 8 oz. of juice or water. Drink immediately as this product tends to thicken quickly when added to liquid. Tastes best in carrot juice, apple juice, or smoothies. If cleansing or eating a high-protein diet, use 3x daily. If eating a low-protein diet, use once daily.

NOTICE

Using this product without enough liquid may cause choking. Do not use this product if you have difficulty swallowing. This product contains Aloe Vera (A. barbadensis) leaf. Read and follow directions carefully. Do not use if you have or develop diarrhea, loose stools, or abdominal pain. Consult your physician if you have frequent diarrhea. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication or have a medical condition, consult your physician before using this product.

month 3

Long story short, if you want healthy eyes, a strong immune system, and a ton of energy, feed your body DAILY with a juice that packs a ton of punch: NingXia Red.

Not only does it taste good but it contains one powerful ingredient, NingXia Wolfberry puree. Wolfberries score very high on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale. This scale measures the ability of a food or any other substance to quench oxygen free radicals in a test tube. Free radicals are not good and we want them OUT of your body. NingXia Red helps provide an unfriendly place for free radicals, which is a GREAT thing for our health.

The Wolfberry superfruit contains zeaxanthin, a carotenoid important to maintaining healthy vision. It also contains polysaccharides, amino acids, and symbiotic vitamin mineral pairs that when presented together promote optimum internal absorption. In other words, it contains ALL. THE. GOOD. STUFF.

The combination of other fruit juices from blueberries, plums, cherries, pomegranate, and aronia along with essential oils provide an even more powerful and beneficial supplement that supports your health and well-being.

USAGE

Drink 1-2 ounces 2x daily. Best served chilled. Shake well before use.

Looking for a fitness resolution that you can stick to?

I’ve been active in the fitness arena for long enough to notice a pattern. We don’t fall off of weight loss plans, fitness routines or meals plans because the resources don’t exist.  Never before has this world had more access to information at their fingertips. We fall off because we fail to realize that long-term success and results is a product of a lifestyle change.  Habits take 30 days to establish.  So I am going to challenge you to join me in a 30 day lifestyle change (with some pretty great perks).

I’m SO excited to be able to be able to connect my friends with a program that teaches how to take tangible baby step to a healthy life. NOT just massive weight loss that isn’t sustainable or a plan that doesn’t fit your goals.

Here’s the details: 

  • January 11-February 12. 30 days to get you into a routine.
  • An app with customized meal plans for your dietary needs and family situation.
  • Workout plans for every level. Beginner, intermediate and pro. Everything from at home workouts, cardio, yoga, weight training…you name it.
  • Your choice of supplements packages to support your personal goals (weight loss or muscle building…your choice!)
  • $10,000 worth of CASH prizes + tons and tons of product prizes just for showing up. This isn’t a “best before and after” contest. This is a “we teach you how to revamp your life” challenge.

All of this, right at your fingertips. Simple. Customizable. You do NOT have to be the professional to have great success.  Let’s work together to achieve your goals by instilling some easy lifestyle changes over the 30 day period that will work.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
1. Purchase one of the new MyQFIT Packs between December 21 and December 31. If you order your pack before December 26, you will also get a FREE Q Sciences shaker cup (while supplies last), so don’t wait!

2. Enjoy the holidays, and on January 4, you will be emailed a promo a code to get the MyQFIT App FREE.

3. Once you’ve received your promo code, go to myqfit.com, click “Get the App” at the top, and follow the steps with your promo code.

4. You will then receive an email to download the app and set up your account!

5. Now that you’re in the app, January 4-January 11 will be the warmup with exclusive workouts and content to prepare you for the start of the challenge.

6. On January 11, let the games begin! You will now have your full workout program and meal plan.

Perfect your practice: 7 best essential oils for yoga

Like avocado and toast or acai and granola, yoga and essential oils are a match made in heaven. Whether you’ve been doing yoga for years or don’t know your asana from your pranayama, you can benefit from adding these power-packed aromas to your practice.

Need help to feel grounded during your vinyasa? There’s an oil for that. Want to transform your room into a serene yoga studio? There’s a diffuser blend for that. Can’t seem to get the stinky-feet smell out of your yoga mat? You’re not alone! And guess what? Essential oils can help there too.

Ready to discover the benefits essential oils can bring to your yoga class or at-home routine? Check out some of the best essential oils for yoga, plus ways to perfect your practice with aromatherapy.

Best essential oils for yoga

• Lavender essential oil
• Patchouli essential oil
• Frankincense essential oil
• Orange essential oil
• Sacred Sandalwood™ essential oil
• Clary Sage essential oil
• Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil   

How do you use essential oils in yoga?

Essential oils enhance your yoga practice in many ways, from setting the scene to keeping your mat smelling fresh and clean. Wherever you are in your yoga journey, get more out of your flow with these tips.

1. Namaslay with a room spray. Before you start your sun salutations, mix a few of your favorite oils from the list above in a spray bottle with water. Then spritz into the air to surround yourself with the soothing scents of nature.

YL tip: For 3 ounces of water, add 15–20 drops of oil.

2. Mind your mantra. As you set an intention for your yoga practice, put a drop of Sacred Sandalwood on your heart center.

3. Bring it ommm. Dilute a drop of Patchouli or Clary Sage and rub onto your wrists. Breathe in the scent during difficult poses like crow and wheel.

4. Sink into stillness. One of the best ways to use essential oils in savasana is by rubbing a drop of Lavender or Frankincense into your forehead and massaging it toward your temples.

5. Make a mat mist. Combine 4 ounces water, 4 ounces witch hazel, and 3 drops Orange essential oil in a spray bottle; spritz onto your mat and wipe clean. Roll the mat up when it’s dry.

6. Treat yourself to a spa-like reward. Before you hit the mat, dampen a washcloth with cold water and a drop each of Eucalyptus Radiata and Sacred Sandalwood. Then pop it in the freezer, so it’s nice and frosty for your cooldown.

7. Amp up the ambiance. Set the scene for another successful yoga practice with these studio-worthy diffuser blends.
