I have been reading several books lately, including the one called “Healing through Cleansing” by Dr. Yakov Koyfman.
Daily your body encounters life on planet Earth which can tax it greatly. Our mission should be to help it exist as best it can!
Tips for this week –
· Drink water with lemon first thing in the a.m. and drink a cup of mint or chamomile tea before going to sleep at night.
· In the mild months, sleep with a window or two open to let fresh air in.
· Don’t exercise next to cars spewing exhaust fumes!
View more information about this book and Dr. Koyfman’s institute at his web site - http://www.koyfmancenter.com/
Wishing you a fantastic day!

It’s yummy year round!
Here is an excerpt from their web site and the information also appears on the label of their beverage:
- Essential Micro-Nutrients support Urinary Tract Health
- Excellent source of Natural Anti-Oxidant Vitamin C and Vitamin E
- Natural Source Minerals Help Restore Vital Body Electrolytes and Support Metabolism
- Juice absorbs slowly into the body - minimal taxation on the Pancreas for insulin production
Modern research confirms that Fruit Juices contain a wide range of Micro-Nutrients which are essential for supporting and maintaining good health.
No supplement alone can provide the important complex nutrients found in a variety of fruit and vegetable juices.

One item that I purchased recently is from Pacifica.
I periodically use their body butter on my feet before I go to bed.
I then place socks on to keep the product from touching my bed linens while I sleep.
I wake up and they are silky smooth!

laughter and pleasure, teardrops and pain.
there was never a cloud the sun didn’t shine through.
secure in the knowledge that God is always beside you.
and all your burdens will seem to be much lighter.
somebody, somewhere will smile back at you.
than the sunshine and warmth of a Beautiful Smile.”

I have found two wonderful books that talk about how important it is for both men and women to be aware of their habits in order to have good health. Each text describes events that take place during certain decades of life and what steps can be taken to help keep balance in one's life.
Bottom line – Less stress and healthy eating are very necessary to have a quality life. Make good choices in what you consume and in the activities you pursue. You and your body are worth it! A gift from God you are. :)

- If you earn under $50 K a year, do your taxes online at the Freetaxusa.com web site
(you are able to file electronically for a small fee)

Be generous and others will respond accordingly, which usually equates to unexpected, useful and timely gifts!

Personal items / Food items
- Learn to comparison shop at grocery stores - Trader Joe’s generally has the best prices on my everyday items
- Eat less, but more frequently, of fruits, vegetables and nuts during the day and save the larger meal for the evening (if fruits and veggies are not in season and cost tons, keep an Amazing Grass product in your refrigerator to get those essential vegetables in your body)
- Learn to sew
- Join your local Freecycle.org community (ask and you shall receive!)
- Check out Craigslist.org (free and for sale sections have some great deals)
- Purchase what you need at local thrift stores or yard sales (insert your zip code at the Goodwill.org web site to find a thrift store near you and visit Craigslist.org for your city and locate any yard sale posts)
- Clip coupons and also search for them online before making a big purchase
- Shop at discount stores and always check clearance racks at mainstream stores
- Buy powdered soup to use at your whim when sautéing veggies, making casseroles or use it as a base for broth when making soup
- Make your own salad dressing with vinegar and oil and spices in your pantry (look for recipes on the web)
- Ask for tropical plant cuttings from friends and relatives…pothos plants and philodendrons are hearty and root in water if you make a cut just below a root nub…
