Effortless Healing by Dr. Joseph Mercola

I have been familiar, as most are, with the work of Dr. Mercola.  From his TV shows to Internet advertising, he has come to be known as a health expert.  In Effortless Healing, Dr. Mercola reveals the nine simple secrets to a healthier, thinner you.

I am already a very healthy eater, paying close attention to getting plenty of fruits and vegetables and protein in my diet.  I was surprised to find out that whole grains were on his do not eat list but I understand.  They may take longer to metabolize into sugar but eventually they still do.  I am thinking that if weight is not an issue, then some whole grains are fine but to lose weight – they have to come off our list of healthy foods to eat!

His nine steps include water consumption, enjoying the sun, a healthy gut and one of my favorite things to do – “going barefoot.”

I make my own yogurt and kefir. I make and consume fermented vegetables. I eat healthy fats and am very careful about the fish I purchase.  So the information about whole grains, I will take to heart and restructure my eating plan.

I like his natural approach to healthy eating and truly believe that it is the primary key to good health.

Earth Mama’s Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss by Stephanie Rose Bird

I have to tell you – I am having so much fun with this book!  First let me tell you this is NOT another diet book!  This book is for those of us on an Earth Path who struggle with diets that don’t work! It is filled with Goddess lore, rituals chants, affirmations and so many natural ways to support natural and healthy ways to nourish our bodies so that we reach our goals while at the same time – well – we have so much fun!!

When we seriously want to lose weight, going on a diet is not the answer.  What does work –  taking a look at how we nourish our bodies – what we put in it and examining if it supports a healthy, lean body or not.  There are many books, Internet articles and other ways to inform ourselves about that.  But what none of them do is give us wild, beautiful ways to support ourselves as we do what we know we must do to have healthy and happy bodies.

Earth Mama’s Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss brings us help from many different pantheons, with crafts to make, things to do, and rituals that will bring us the power of those goddesses, being supported all the while with aromatherapy and flower essences.

So, if a healthy, happy body is where you are headed, bring your sensible weight-loss program and grab a copy of Earth Mama’s Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss: How Earth Rituals, Goddess Invocations, Incantations, Affirmations and Natural Remedies Enhance Any Weight-loss Plan.
