New Non-Toxic alternatives for personal care products

We have been on a mission the past 10 years to not only remove toxins from our daily food intake, but to also remove these chemicals from our everyday products that we surround ourselves and our family with. When you really start to pay attention to the day to day products you are using or being exposed to, you will be blown away by the amount of chemicals in your path. When unstudied chemicals are used in cosmetics, bath and shower products, cleaning products, and personal hygiene items, the stakes are risky and high… and you are the one that ultimately pays the price. Many companies use ingredients that are linked to cancer, developmental problems, fertility issues, skin irritation, endocrine dysfunction, allergies, and inflammation. Many of these chemical ingredients actually penetrate the skin. Remember, your skin is your largest living organ. My rule of thumb is always this… IF YOU WOULDN’T SPRAY IT IN YOUR MOUTH OR CONSUME IT, THEN YOU SHOULDN’T PUT IT ON YOUR SKIN!  People also ingest these chemicals when used on lips and hands, and inhale sprays and powders as well.

The personal care product industry is HIGHLY unregulated. Some of the toxic ingredients you will find are: Parabens, Synthetic colors, Fragrance, Phthalates, Triclosan, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Formaldehyde, Toluene, and Propylene Glycol. You MUST read the labels, do your research, and source out the cleanest products available. You can actually make many of your own personal care products with basic core ingredients that you probably already have around your house along with a few essential oils. There are also many clean companies I have discovered that are on the same mission as me! One of my favorites is Ava Anderson Non-Toxic products. I discovered these products when I was pregnant with my son, and have been using many of their baby products, the skin-care line (which smells and feels incredible), their lipstick and lipgloss, and their sunscreen and household cleaning products. I feel confident when using these products around my children and pets, knowing they are not getting exposed to harmful chemicals. I was pleased to find out one of my clients fell in love with these products too, and she even left her “Corporate America” job to pursue a “non-toxic” career with Ava Anderson. Here’s her website so you can read more about these healthy products and find the alternatives you are looking for to clean up your personal care routine.

My Story

I have told my story numerous times… One on one to clients, and in front of hundreds of practitioners and participants at seminars and health fairs. It’s always emotional and always reminds me of how far I’ve come and how God forces us through numerous valleys in order to reach the glorious mountain tops!
I finally sat down to write my story for the first time, and though this is a summary version, what a therapeutic experience it was. I am sharing it with all of you, because if this inspires even one person to get better and regain their health… Then it’s all worth it! God Bless!

Healthy Ice Cream Alternative: Coconut Milk Ice Cream

I have recently had many clients ask about ice cream options… and I continue to brag about an amazing new line up of an excellent product that meets our cellular healing diet needs: The So Delicious Brand Coconut Milk Ice Cream! It’s incredible, and the one with no sugar added is an extra bonus because it can be consumed in moderation on Phase I of the Healing Diet Plan. There are a variety of flavors: Vanilla Bean, Toasted Almond Chip, Chocolate, Mint Chip, and Butter Pecan. You can learn more about the product by visiting the So Delicious Website. The product is made from Coconut Milk so it is dairy free and it has healthy fat from the Coconut Milk.

No Sugar Added Vanilla Bean

So what’s so great about Coconut anyway? Here’s just a few of the many benefits of coconut consumption:

  • Coconut consuming cultures around the world have lower incidence of heart disease than Americans
  • Lauric acid exists abundantly in coconut and plays a fundamental role in building our body’s immune system. Once in our system it transforms into an antibacterial and antiviral substance called “monolaurin” which destroys viruses and diseases and plays a vital role in nourishing and protecting us from infections
  • MCFAs (Medium Chain Fatty Acids) found in Coconut promote weight maintenance without raising cholesterol levels. They work best for preventing weight gain if you’re not overweight or maintaining your new weight after a successful eating plan
  • Helps protect against kidney disease and bladder infections and dissolves kidney stones
  • Supports healthy thyroid function and promotes loss of excess weight by increasing metabolic rate
  • Is utilized by the body to produce energy in preference to being stored as body fat like other dietary fats which helps prevent obesity and overweight problems
  • Boosts energy and endurance, enhancing physical and athletic performance
  • Improves digestion and absorption of other nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and amino acids
  • Improves insulin secretion and utilization of blood glucose and helps relieve symptoms and reduce health risks associated with diabetes
  • Relieves stress on pancreas and enzyme systems of the body and reduces symptoms associated with pancreatitis
  • Improves calcium and magnesium absorption and supports the development of strong bones and teeth which helps protect against osteoporosis
  • Helps relieve symptoms associated with gallbladder disease
  • Relieves symptoms associated with Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, and stomach ulcers and improves digestion and bowel function 
  • Reduces inflammation and supports tissue healing and repair

As you can see, the sky’s the limit with Coconut benefits! Once you try this amazing new ice cream, you’ll thank us! We’d love to hear from you and your rave reviews on this product as well. Send us your comments at tmihealth comment page.


Are food allergies making you sick?

I’ve recently had so many people brought into my life that are truly suffering from many common symptoms including: fatigue, bloating, digestion concerns, skin disorders, chronic sinusitis, heartburn, diarrhea or constipation, obesity, arthritis, ADD/ADHD, itching, &  ‘brain fog’ where your concentration and memory are impaired. These are classic candida infection symptoms: CANDIDA ENTERITIS, a systemic yeast infection in your gut. It can cause lots of symptoms and take over day to day life! We offer testing for this and food allergies. Learn how to get tested and overcome this battle. We use advanced testing to identify reactions to over 350 foods, chemicals, and substances associated with inflammation and our chronic health problems of today.

Alkaline balance is very important for overall health

Did you know an underlying metabolic acidity is a factor to many autoimmune and degenerative diseases?! Alkaline balance is very important for overall health. When we have metabolic acidosis, it can have a severe impact on our health including interference with cell metabolism, impaired energy production, increase in free radical production, loss of bone mineral, loss of muscle mass, a reduction in growth hormones, and the development of kidney stones. The restoration of an alkaline state is essential to overall bone health, proper immune system function, and overall cellular health. Our bodies function at their best in an alkaline environment. Our standard American diet and toxic exposures all around us unfortunately contribute to a great deal of acid in the body.

Our bodies can utilize alkaline-forming foods to help buffer acids. Many of these can be obtained by eating a diet rich in healthy oils (good fats), fruits, and vegetables. When alkaline-forming foods are metabolized, they have the ability to accept hydrogen ions which reduce the acid load and in turn restore alkaline balance in the body.

Recommendations for alkaline-forming foods include:

Coconuts, coconut oil, olive oil, blueberries, apples, grapefruit, avocado, avocado oil, olives, lemons, blackberries, limes, strawberries, raspberries, watermelon, cucumbers, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, mustard greens, kale, winter squash, asparagus, eggplant, summer squash, zucchini, cod liver oil, onions, flax oil, celery, collard greens, endive, broccoli, and cabbage.
