Lots of women have been calling and emailing me lately about hot flashes. They are quite relieved when I tell them there is a natural way not to have any!
Just remove the animal protein from one's diet (the estrogen in dairy and eggs - from female animals and creatures - triggers a lot of stuff) and don't eat more than 2 ounces of soaked fatty nuts at one sitting. The 2 ounces (or 1/4th of a cup) of almond or filbert cream, or 1/4th of an avocado, is all one's liver can handle without storing it as fat and then having to sweat it out later. In the summer, this can make for a really nice experience.
Today I was out in the 90 degree temps eating watermelon on my patio while everyone else was inside with their a/c's... Being on living food makes it even better because there is no dead food that the body has to burn off.
I have organic pineapples ripening and just found a Publix near my Yoga for Kids class at the YWCA that carries all manner of organic food. They special ordered some organic cherries for me too! Now I don't have to drive all the way (17 miles) to Whole Foods and get there and find out that they don't have an organic blueberries or bananas or watermelons or strawberries.
Using a natural bristle skin brush on dry skin really helps to get your skin glowing. Following that in the shower or bath with a wet loofa scrub will chase the cellulite away and firm up and tone skin. Cucumber slices on your eyes, and a mask of avocado after 5 minutes of a pineapple pulp mask is such a joy for skin that has been out in the sun or indoors in A/C.
This is my favorite time of the year and I'm trying to get out to the Biscayne Underwater National Park at least twice a week to just sit and commune with the baby fish.
Peace and love,
