I wanted to share one of my all time favorite products with you all !! I LOVE my magnesium oil ! Every night before bed I spray a little bit on the bottom of my feet as part of my bedtime ritual .Most of us are deficient in this essential mineral. Some of the signs of deficiency are : Muscle cramps, facial tics, poor sleep, anxiety, headaches and chronic pain. I have my pregnant clients use this oil nightly before bed .. It helps with leg cramps, insomnia, anxiety, back and body pain , fatigue, constipation and stress. By using the oil it is one of the best ways to absorb it into your body. You can also try adding some leafy greens , pumpkin seeds , lentils , dark chocolate, bananas and avocados into your diet as they are all rich in magnesium. I always add a little magnesium oil to my childbirth and prenatal massage oil blend ( not too much because it can burn the skin ) and massage my pregnant and laboring women with it.

One of my clients was having terrible morning sickness and emailed me for some natural remedies to help . This is the one she said saved her.Lemons have a calming effect and have been known to help relieve nausea .
1 quart of water
The juice of 2 -4 lemons depending on preferred tartness
and if you want sweetness add some stevia to taste
Pour into ice tray , freeze and suck on the cubes or crush them and eat .

NEWS FLASH ……. There is no such thing as perfect ! As long as you are trying to reach it you will never be happy or content in your own being . Something to ponder …. What or who are you competing with ? What is this image of perfection you are trying to live up to ? Is this image even real or realistic for you ? There is no right or one way to do anything but there is a right and perfect way for you , your children and family . When you are able to find what works for you , then you will find perfection in your own individuality and uniqueness . I can look at some of my dearest friends / clients and think they are truly amazing moms in the way that they do it that works for them . If I tried to do what they do and use some of them as my bar of perfection .. I would never live up to it as they are totally different then me . They have strengths and abilities that I just don’t have . Just like I have gifts and ways about me that they lack in certain areas . If I used them as my bar of perfection and compared myself to them it would reek havoc on my self esteem making me feel not good enough . I can’t tell you how often I see and hear this from my clients … So and so lost her weight right away .. so and so nursed until her baby was one , so and so has the perfect marriage , kids and home …. Ladies , what we see on the surface isn’t always whats really going on behind closed doors . Stop comparing yourself to others , connect with yourself and find what is right for you instead of what society , your family and friends says is right . Find your own perfection from your authentic place of truth in who you are .

I have been trying to get my people for years to eat garlic while they are pregnant and they look at me like I am crazy ! The very thought of it makes them cringe just thinking about it . I can’t believe I totally forgot about sociable garlic capsules !! I use to take them everyday for years to help with my circulation and to help regulate my blood sugar levels when I lived in Aspen . The brand I like is called Kyolic and when you take them your won’t burp them up or smell bad .
Here are the reasons I like taking or eating garlic in pregnancy –
It boosts your immune system and helps fight off illness and has natural antibiotic qualities
Is an antibacterial ,anti-fungal and antiviral
Reduces blood pressure ( great for later in pregnancy to help prevent preeclampsia )
Blood thinner ( great to take on bed rest or before , during and after flying to help prevent blood clots )
regulates blood sugar ( great for preventing or healing gestational diabetes )
Is an anti inflammatory
Is a natural decongestant ( great for pregnancy stuffiness , allergies or the common cold )
Helps with shortness of breath ( when baby makes it hard to breathe during month 7/8 of pregnancy )
Helps your body absorb iron better
Increases circulation and blood flow

ATTENTION ALL MOMS AND MOMS TO BE .. BEST PREGNANCY, BIRTHING AND PARENTING ADVICE EVER !!!!!! Your baby has grown , developed and has lived inside of you for 9 full months …. just as you know when something feels off or not right with you , your baby is part of you and you will sense the same in and for them .
