You Are Divine Love and Other Things I Learned at I Can Do It

This weekend I attended my first spiritual conference, sponsored by Hay House, called "I Can Do It 2014." Leading up to the weekend, I had experienced a number of big life changes and it seemed like this conference could not have come at a better time. On Saturday morning, I woke up exhausted, guzzled a cup of caffeine, forgot about breakfast, drove like a maniac thinking I would be late, and then a funny thing…

How I Healed Myself With Food and Became A Nutritionist

While tweeting about health and wellness I was honored to come across Amanda Hayes, a nutritionist and holistic health expert. We tweeting back and forth, I realized I had a lot to learn from her. Food, as it turns out, is so much more than what the grocery store wants you to believe. Amanda learned this first hand. This is her story... ------------- I have always been interested in health and nutrition. At 10 years…

5 Healthy Green Ways To Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day

In the past on Saint Patrick's day, you would probably find me in a bar somewhere drinking green beer and taking down car bombs (okay, probably taking down one car bomb followed by the 'I don't feel so good' look). But lately I have realized just how much fun life can be without getting drunk. In America, as I am sure it is like in parts of Europe, Saint Patrick's day has turned into one…

To Eating and Living Consciously

My friend, Dhru Purohit, and I have two things in common: we both grew up in Kenya and we both enjoy fresh, real food. I guess when you grow up in a beautiful country like Kenya, it's hard to not love that which is fresh and pure. As a child, I still remember walking the dusty streets of Nairobi to the market or the butchers; handing over Shillings in exchange for roasted corn with chili…

Endo Eats: What to Eat When Endometriosis Strikes

It's no secret. Endometriosis sucks. But it is a part of my life and something I must tackle and deal with head-on. I remember the first time my doctor told me I had to change my diet: "no sugars, no processed foods, no caffeine, no wheat, no alcohol," she said. She might as well have said "no life." What was I supposed to eat then? A slice of lettuce with a drizzle of olive oil?…

When I’m 94: Secrets to Living a Long and Healthy Life

We know this is partially thanks to the powers of modern medicine, but what does it really take to live to be in your 90's? Mom-mom on her 90th birthday.

The Awakening

I have been unable to write for the past few weeks. It's not that I don't want to write. I love writing. It lives within me at all moments of the day. It is like an old friend that will always know my heart, completely. But lately, it has been hard to write. Today I am looking over a number of unpublished blog posts on this site. In each one, I was trying to say…

Just Believe in Yourself

For the past few weeks I have been listening as friends and family share their concerns with me. They want my advice and I will always give it readily and always lend them a shoulder to cry on. But lately I have been pressing on my own shoulders. Through the practices of reiki and meditation, I am learning how to calm my own anxieties and heal my own hurts. And through these ancient practices, I…
