There is no judgment about botox, but I do believe that beyond the skin deep paradigm of outer beauty lies access to a profound radiance from within.
I just love the word radiance and the energy or frequency it carries - its deeper than the word glow, it expands beyond you and into the quantum orbiofield(a large field of energy that surrounds and extends out from the body about 8 feet. No part of the energy system is visible to the human eye but the biofield can be felt with the hands, often through either pressure or temperature changes)around you…
Radiance definition: a measure of the amount of electromagnetic radiation leaving or arriving at a point on a surface; light or heat asemittedor reflected by something.
The same life force that created the universe and everything in it flows through our bodies.
Yogis refer to it as prana; the Chinese term is chi. This vital and abundant life-giving energy is the building block of all life.
Accessing this energy can reboot your system with truly transformational results. Life-force energy runs along our meridians and chakras, which are located in our fascial system. When we create flow and juiciness in our fascia, we open up our energy channels to allow the unobstructed movement of this subtle yet powerful healing force.
Gut health problems and digestive issues are rampant these days. Leaky gut, IBS and issues like bloating and constipation are all on the rise - and other problems like poor sleep, skin rashes and even autoimmune conditions can often be attributed to issues with our digestion. So it’s no surprise that good health literally starts with our gut.
Sustainable weight loss and maintaining a healthy weight can seem daunting and may feel like an elusive never-ending struggle for many of us, but in my personal experience and from observing my client’s own incredible weight transformations, it’s not only achievable, it’s also totally sustainable. So it’s time to stop endlessly beating yourself up about your weight and get off the dieting yoyo - and instead reclaim your life and find a healthy weight you can sustain for the long term - and feel good about!

You might have heard people on podcasts or Instagram talking about the vagus nerve recently. For some reason it seems to have popped up on the radar of many people in the health and wellness world. It’s something I’ve been talking about for a long time now - in fact in my last book, ‘The Power Source’, I talked about the vagus nerve a lot.
