(Another) Key to Health and Wellness During Stressful Times

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has No Comments

bloom-immune-system-booster_bottle_largeLet’s just cut to the chase about health and wellness during the holidays. We are all stressed. Stress causes a diminished sense of energy and vitality, loss of sleep and increased anxiety. It begins to break down your immune system.

We can’t always get rid of the stress, it is more about how we manage it.

How are you managing it to stay well and vibrant?

We have a new practice that helps combat the physiological symptoms of stress we want to share. And it rocks our world.

Recently, the GEM girls were introduced to an amazing assortment of herbal wellness drops that positively support allergy & sinus relief, immune system and adrenal glands. We have been in love ever since.

The GEM’s Famous Energy tips not withstanding, here are a couple unique and targeted remedies you can use to stay afloat in the stormy sea of winter stress, cold, flu and fatigue. Jack, we got your magic bean for health and wellness.

It’s called BLOOM.

These precious wellness drops are organic, vegan, non-GMO and gluten free. Made from organic herbs, roots, flowers and other gems of nature, they are an amazing remedy for systems out of balance.

Bloom for health and wellness: let us break it down for you fellas:

COUGH

This one is effective against any upper respiratory issue, cold and cough.  You can take them in conjunction with the others for a well rounded arsenal against your yucky cold/cough.

SINUS

Congestion, headaches, nasal drips, itchy eyes and hay fever don’t stand a chance against these fast-acting drops. They quickly reduce the swelling and inflammation of sinus tissues. Really! Say goodbye to your creepy sinus medications for seasonal allergies …

ALLERGY

Take this for 10 days and watch your system balance out your immune system, detoxify the liver and regenerate the adrenals to get to the ROOT of your allergy woes. Heal your allergies naturally.

RECOVERY

This tincture supports your adrenal glands which keep your sleep patterns in check, regulate your cortisol levels, keep you running smooth. Excessive anything is not good for you: intense workouts, late nights, worry. Your body needs replacement and recovery from this depletion. Recovery relieves exercise/stress related head & body aches, nausea, dehydration and general fatigue, while promoting healthy liver and adrenal function. It helps with consistent sleep patterns affected by out of whack adrenals. Post workout, post party (hangover) and late night out. We heart this. A lot.

IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOSTER

Just like the name says, this stuff really gets your immune system ready to fight the toughest opponent. It has anti-viral and bacterial properties with Echinacea, Elderberry, Peppermint herb, Magic Mushrooms Shitake and Maitake (these guys also fight nasty things like cancer). We like to take the Immune System Booster alongside the Recovery for a super badass defense against fatigue and illness.

Grab the ones that are right for you, mix them into your tea or water and start feeling the effects of nature’s remedies. So …

BLOOM Where You Are Planted, BABY.


December Bloat Buster: The Cleanse

Posted on by diamondsonyourinside and currently has No Comments

December is a crazy month of parties, fun, stress, eating, drinking, the list goes on and on. You may think there’s no point in a cleanse before the holidays.

Peace. Happy.  Juice Cleanse.

Peace. Happy.
Juice Cleanse.

So wrong!

In fact, it’s almost a must that you cleanse right now. You may believe cleansing as a short, intense retreat into super-restricted eating that you do after lots of binge-ing. This doesn’t have to be the case. It can be a daily practice. There’s no wrong season for clean eating.

Daily Cleansing is a great way to get you through the holidays without taking on excess toxins and destructive eating habits.

A Daily Cleanse will:

  1. Rid your body of the toxins that stimulate cravings. It’s hard enough to turn down all the sweets, eggnog and mashed potatoes – you certainly don’t need your body begging you to gorge on this stuff.
  2. Create a healthy balance. You don’t need to feel completely restricted when you are cleansing. Your body can recover from a few cocktails or a piece of cake if it’s coming from a place of optimal health.
  3. Keep you feeling in control. There is something very empowering about having a regimen of clean eating. Mindfulness of it all can be an incredible weapon in your quest for vibrance.

Many people are scared to commit to cleansing right now because you think you have to miss out on everything that is fun and social. That is simply NOT true.

Yes, a full GEM juice cleanse is amazing and makes you feel like a million bucks, but that doesn’t always fit into our social schedules.

Try our Juice til Dinner, or even doing a day in the life of a GEM. The menu below is how we roll on a daily basis. You can live a cleansing lifestyle and still enjoy delicious, tasty food.

FIRST THING UPON WAKING: 32 oz. filtered water with lemon and take a Bio Kult probiotic and Nordic Natural Ultimate Omegas.

  • Green Glow by 8
  • Radiant Glow or a GEM smoothie by 10, plus more water
  • Lentil soup and kale salad for lunch
  • Flawless at 4, plus 16 oz of water
  • If you are staying in, consider Arugula and Mushroom salad and some hummus for dinner. Alongside a chopped veggie salad. The food is so vibrant and nutrient dense that you cannot over do it.

The Dinner Party: If you are going out, see the tips below:

  • Keep a Small 3 Bean Salad or small quinoa in your fridge. Eat it before you go out to your cocktail party. This will help keep you satisfied and eliminate the crazy craving for too much bad stuff.
  • Stay away from the puff pastries, the cheese tray, the pasta. Find the shrimp, the veggie and hummus platter, the sushi. Once you’ve had one type of appetizer, don’t revisit it. You know what it tastes like, now stop.
  • Really try to keep the alcohol to a minimum. Your sugar levels spike and your willpower plummets. You don’t have to completely restrict yourself to feel good in the morning! This is a great way to keep your cravings in check or bounce back after last night’s office party.
  • Remember the party is about the socializing and friendships. Save the whale feeding for another time.

Don’t put this off until the New Year. Take charge of your life now. Indulging isn’t about throwing all caution to the wind, it’s about finding balance. You can have both during the holiday months.

Make this holiday your happiest and healthiest and GEM~miest yet.
