Nadine’s Nibblers ~ Grounding a Room

Everytime I walk into a room, I OWN IT for Myself.  It does not matter how many other people are in the room or what the topic of conversation is… I CLAIM MY SPACE.

Here are two ways I Ground the Room for ME

  • Imagine there is a Chord coming from each corner of the Ceiling
  • Imagine there is a Chord coming from each corner of the Floor
  • Gather all those Chords and drop them down the CENTER of the room... Allow the Grounding to go all the way down to the Center of the Earth Mother.

Way number Two… the Down and Dirty method….

  • I walk into the room and simply claim  MINE!!

Try out these two methods of OWNING a Room for Yourself.  Then come share your feedback, results.  ~Nadine

 

Dr Nadine’s Nuggets ~ Embracing Change

Nadine’s Nuggets ~ Embracing Change

Hello Dear Readers, and Welcome to a new edition of NADINE’S NUGGETS ~ morsels of information from various arenas including Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Herbology, Personal Training and Nutrition.

This issue explores Embracing Change, and features a few thoughts to ponder. I have also included a bit of information regarding changes you will see on the coachnadine.com website (FB, Twitter, iTunes) as well as the launch of the SOUL Food deck one app for iphone/ipad/ipod touch.

CHANGE is in the air! Evidence can be seen on the news, in the weather patterns and within conversations surrounding you. Within the past weeks, my awareness has been drawn to multiple conversations regarding shifts in health status, shifts in employment status or moving to a new home or territory.

Within each conversation was an underlying thread of the unknown, a spark of uncertainty. At the same time, there was a sense of excitement for what might be on the horizon. Old behavior might have each of us grabbing onto what we know (panic, fear, etc) as we discover that with CHANGE comes OPPORTUNITY. And with Opportunity, a door will open allowing us to grow.

Affirmation:I Believe there is more for me to Explore. For now, I will simply Allow Myself to FEEL my Feelings

We have the Opportunity to be Grateful for the Past. Here are a few thoughts to ponder:
* What is the most significant skill I mastered in this place?
* What did I learn about Myself while being here?
* How did I grow? List all the areas
* Where was my growth hindered or blocked?
* What friendships did I Embrace?

We also have the Opportunity to Create our next steps. Thoughts to ponder might include:
* What NEW Opportunities are now available to me as I move forward?
* In what ways can I Growth?
* What Risks might I encounter with this new opportunity?
* How would I like be be Seen or Validated in my next relationship, job, etc
* How would I like to be greeted on a daily basis?
* How would I like to be compensated for my time? Knowledge? Etc
* What is an area of my personality I would like Embrace? (have more eye contact, smile more, present a Positive outlook on life, etc)
* Create a list of ALL of the Things YOU would like to experience in your new job/relationship etc.

Affirmation: I follow my Inner Guidance and Embrace this new phase of my journey

The Bach Flower Remedy WALNUT ~ helps with new beginnings . Bach wrote that Walnut is ‘the Remedy for those who have decided to take a great step forward in life, to break old conventions, to leave old limits and restrictions and start on a new way.’ If you find you have made a choice to move in a new direction or take on a new challenge, have your bags packed and are sitting in your boat, but the boat is still tied to the dock, Walnut is the remedy to choose.

As you EMBRACE this CHANGE in your life… I say.. CONTRATS to you. Enjoy the ride… and… Share your Journey with someone. Odds are, they just might hold the key to the doorway you are supposed to enter.

Affirmation:I Embrace this Glorious path I find myself Traveling. I walk forward in Confidence, Ease and Joy.

Clean Eating For the Natural Woman as was published in the July 2011 Issue of Fit Beautiful

 

Clean Eating For The Natural Woman

By Dr. Nadine, N.D., C.N.S.   Sat, Jul 02, 2011

Use this meal plan for radiant, healthy skin! Yes!

Have you ever had one of those days when it just feels like your skin or body revolted against you?  You take a peek in the mirror and the woman looking back greets you with swollen, puffy eyes, or face breakouts?  That, my friend, is a heads up that something is out of balance within the ‘system’ and needs attention.

The skin is considered the third kidney.  One of it’s jobs is to detoxify and eliminate toxins.  Any form of skin eruption, (i.e. face break outs; red mask across the forehead and nose; bumps down the back of the arms; a rash on the stomach, arms or thighs; or a blotchy, bloated, puffy appearance), signals an internal imbalance.

As internal alarms begin ringing toxin alert, toxin alert, the bowels, kidneys and lungs will go to work in an attempt to release those toxins.  If they are unable to do so effectively, the third kidney says “I’ll help out” and boom, toxins erupt via the skin.  Oh JOY!!!

The human body is an incredible healing machine and when given the support it needs, will heal itself, since all healing comes from within.  NUTRITION is the KEY!!! that opens the gateway to your overall health and well-being.  Nutrition sheds light on the possible source of any imbalance, ailment or physical issue you might be experiencing.

Since we heal from the inside out, it is important to First eliminate the foods causing the distress.  Second, it is vital to nourish the body with clean, nutrient dense foods.  A nourished body will love you back with vibrant, healthy, beautiful looking skin.

Foods that create an imbalance, causing toxins to accumulate, include but not limited to: WHEAT (for some this might include all Gluten products); DAIRY (usually milk and cheese); refined Sugar; fried foods; and artificial sweeteners.  Some folks have an immediate reaction to peanuts while others may react to non-fermented soy products.  One of the worst possible toxin combinations is Wheat + Dairy which forms a gluey pasty mess internally.  The Key here is to discover what YOU put in your body that created a reaction.  Once you discover the culprit, you can eliminate that food item and allow the healing process to begin.

Nutrient dense foods that Nourish and Nurture the body, organs, and skin include: Green Veggies, Whole Grains, Legumes, Soaked Nuts and Seeds, fresh Fruit, lean Fish and Poultry.

Vibrant, healthy looking skin, begins at the end of your fork.  Here is a suggested a day of Clean Eating for the Natural Woman.  Beauty delivered six times a day at the end of your FORK!

Clean Eating for the Natural Woman

Meal #1 – 5 egg whites + ½ cup of dry oats/quinoa +2 oz blueberries  +|
1 TBS natural almond butter (see pancake recipe)

Meal #2 – 8 oz plain greek yogurt + 23 soaked almonds + ½ cup
blueberries

Meal #3 – 3.5 oz Tuna + 1 cup lettuce + ½ cup shredded raw beets
+ ½ cup cucumbers + 1 TBS Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)
+ ½ TBS Udos/Flaxseed oil + 1/3 cup cooked rice or rye

Meal #4 – 3 oz (chicken or turkey) + 1-2 cups green veggies + ½ TBS OO
+ 3.5 oz baked yam

Meal #5 – 4 oz salmon +1-2 cups romaine + parsley/cilantro +
½ cup cucumbers + 1 TBS ACV with Lemon + ½ TBS Udos/OO

Meal #6 – Protein PUDDING  (see recipe)

 

Oatmeal/Quinoa Pancakes  (pronounced Keen-wah)

  • 5 egg whites
  • ½ cup dry Oats or Quinoa Flakes
  • your desired flavorings (cinnamon, bakers cocoa etc)
  • Stevia to sweeten
  • blueberries and natural almond butter.

Fluff this mixture up with a fork and allow to ‘set’… (I usually put it in the fridge overnight).
Once this mixture is ‘set’ or thickened, add in your blueberries then
Fry like a pancake.

After it is cooked (usually 3-5 minutes)
Put your serving of Almond Butter or Peanut Butter on top to get in your Healthy Fats.

Note: These pancakes are great for hikes, biking, trips, flights, etc. They travel very well. They can be made in advance and frozen. Be creative here.. There are no limits to what you can do with this pancake.

Protein Pudding

  • 2 scoops of your favorite Protein powder.  I like Egg White Protein best
  • 4 TBS ground Flaxseeds (grinding the seeds opens the nutrients so the body can use this as a food/fat source)
  • add in any spices/flavorings if you desire (vanilla, extracts, cocoa powder, cinnamon, etc)

Stir in cold water to the thickness of a ‘pudding’.

Allow your Protein Pudding to chill for at least 4 hours.  If you want your yummy delight before then, pop your creation in the freezer for about 30-45 minutes. This makes a lovely cold treat loaded with Protein and Healthy Fats.

Note: This one is awesome when attending a conference. Carry your Protein Powder and Flax seeds in little baggies. Pitchers of ice water are usually provided. Mix your ingredients in a container then let it sit ON ice for another little bit. WOW… what a lovely thick treat either in the middle of the day… or at night when you want that ‘ice cream’ thing.

ENJOY the Beauty you are creating as you allow your body to heal from the inside out with nutrient dense foods.  Remember a nourished body will always love you back with vibrant, healthy, beautiful looking skin!

Until next issue: Be FIT. Be BEAUTIFUL. Be VIBRANT.

ASK Dr Nadine ~ Tumeric for Carol

Hello Carol and thanks for writing in.

TURMERIC (Curcuma Longa) is used as a blood purifier, stimulant and vulnerary.   Vulneraries are herbs that encourage the healing of wounds by promoting cell growth and repair.

The root imparts its characteristic golden color to curry powder and most Indian dishes.  It’s Energy and Flavor:  spicy, bitter and warm.

Turmeric can be applied both internally and externally to heal wounds, relieve pain/inflammation in the limbs, break up congestion and can be used to restore the loss of blood during child birth.  It holds great benefit to the circulatory system and it helps to regulate the menstrual cycle.  Turmeric is also used for reducing fevers and for nose bleeds.

One tsp of powdered turmeric root can be taken twice daily to help regulate the menus or to prevent or lessen PMS symptoms.  It gently activates liver functionality to help regulate and balance the hormones.

Another concoction found helpful in stretching ligaments and reducing menstrual cramps consists of: a tsp of turmeric powder + a tsp of almond oil + a cup of warm milk enjoyed  one to two cups are daily.

Thanks again for writing in ~Dr Nadine
