3 Steps to a Healthier Body in 2023

3 STEPS TO A HEALTHIER BODY IN 2023!

8 / FEBRUARY / 2023
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Every year we want to be our best selves, but often a lack of preparation lets us down! Which is why taking charge of your health early in the year is key to setting yourself up for success!!

Take yourself through these 3 steps to make sure you're starting the year with your healthiest foot forward.

3 STEPS TO A HEALTHIER BODY

1. CLAIM YOUR GOALS

And NO I'm not talking about your new year's resolutions, but actual goals... What symptoms do you want to be free of? How do you want to feel in your body? Define what your healthiest self actually looks like… then make a plan to get there!

If you claim them, write them down, make a vision board and then make a plan, you are keeping your mind focused on what you want to achieve. To quote Tony Robbins here ‘where focus goes, energy flows’. In other words, whatever you put your attention on is more likely to become a reality, so get super clear on what is it you want!

2. CREATE HEALTHY HABITS

Too often we go in with an all or nothing approach, like signing up to the gym and training everyday for the first couple of weeks, then burning our bodies out or injuring ourselves sets us back or to a complete halt

Pick no more than 3 new habits, and be REALISTIC with them. Maybe it's going to the gym 3 x week, preparing your meals in advance and meditating daily, but make sure it is something that feels doable and just a little outside your comfort zone.

Then pick a time and pop it as a recurring event in your calendar so it actually happens, and you can progress and increase from there. Trying to do everything all at once is a recipe for failure (take it from me - I learnt that the hard way). Let’s first build momentum and then keep progressing!

3. EAT WHOLE REAL FOODS

A healthier body is one that isn't inflamed, in pain or highly symptomatic - and this really does start with your food. Eating food that grew in the ground, walked on the earth, and is as close to nature as possible is a real food... Tell you what you don't see growing on a farm

A field of bagels!

Put it this way, the less processed the less inflammatory, it really is that simple. You don't have to overhaul your entire pantry, start slow, make some swaps and increase your greens, you'll be amazed at how much better you feel.

Take a slower trip around your supermarket (btw I say AROUND because the perimeter is where you will find the REAL food). Plan you meals before you go, read the ingredients on the ‘food’ you pick up, and get curious about what you’re really putting into your body.

BONUS STEP: GET TO THE ROOT CAUSE!!

If you've been struggling with your health, and really aren't sure where to start, or you feel like there is something deeper going on in your body and you just want some answers… Check out my FREE root cause quiz, filled with tips, tricks and action steps to help your body step into your healthiest self - because when we heal from the root, we heal for good!

7 WAYS TO NATURALLY BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
And how I am supporting mine whilst having long C*VID

1. Ice Baths/Cold Showers

These have an extremely positive effect on the immune system, enhancing detoxification, reducing pain and inflammation, and research supports even 30 seconds of cold showering daily reduced sick days by 29%

Recommendation - finish your daily shower with 30 seconds of cold water

2. Saunas

Saunas also support our detoxification pathways flushing our blood without producing extra metabolic waste, enhances sleep, increases immune activity, anti-inflammatory response and autophagy (cells destroying/breaking the parts of them that are damaged or abnormal)

Recommendation - 3 x week for 20 minutes

3. Probiotics

Supplementing with probiotics is amazing for immune support as they can inhibit growth of the pathogens (bad bugs), and compete for the nutrients the pathogens need to survive. We also know that 70% of the immune system lives in the gut and not having enough good guys can leave us wide open to infection

Recommendation - 3 month dose of high quality probiotic with at least 10 billion CFU's, @bepurewellness do a great over the counter one

4. Exercise

Regular exercise helps regulate the immune system as anti-inflammatory cytokines (immune-modulating agents) are released, and lymphatic system is increased supporting detoxification, and elimination as well as building resilience

Recommendation - moderate intensity exercise for no more than 90 minutes (5 - 7 x week)

5. Sunshine

Or more importantly the vitamin D we get from sunshine is reported to have significant effects on the immune system, from reducing inflammation, releasing antimicrobial peptides, and reducing incidence of respiratory infections

Recommendation - 10 to 30 minutes of sun exposure (without sunscreen), a few times per week

6. Sleep

Or lack thereof has a significant impact on how well your immune system functions, studies show whilst adequate sleep promotes healthy immune system function, one way of which promoting your immunological memory, lack of sleep disrupts the immune system and can cause more inflammation and decrease its function

Recommendation - 7 - 9 hours per night, more if you are sick or recovering from illness

7. Whole real foods 

Our bodies require a huge number of micro and macronutrients to support our immune system and oxidative stress. Studies reported that infection and incidence of illness decreased through consuming vitamins and minerals through whole real food sources

Recommendation - consume a diet rich in a variety of colour, fruits and veggies from natural sources daily

What on earth do carrots have to do with detoxing? Well A LOT actually! Carrots are superstars when it comes to supporting our gut and hormone health!

The indigestible fibre you’ll find in carrots actually support in protecting the gut, and having grated carrots or raw carrot (if chewed well), can reduce the reabsorption of estrogen in the gut, as well as reducing the levels of bacterial endotoxins.

This is because of the fibre as well as the antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial properties which enable it to act as a natural antibiotic in the gut! Which is especially important when our body’s detoxification systems are overwhelmed!

We don’t want those extra estrogens or harmful bacterias to wind up crossing the gut lining and into the bloodstream! Or say goodbye to balanced hormones, optimal digestion and a regular metabolism!

This recipe is super popular and originated from a guy called Dr. Ray Peat… and was taken directly from my Cycle Syncing Crash Course Bundle Follicular Phase Recipe Book, if you want to check out more recipes and ways to live, eat and exercise in sync with your cycle check it out here!

In the meantime, give this recipe a try!

INGREDIENTS

-  1-2 raw whole carrots, rinsed with skin on (preferably organic)
-  1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
-  1 tsp. virgin coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil
-  Pinch of iodised sea salt, to taste

METHOD

1. Grate or peel the carrots thinly
2. Add the ACV, then oil, then salt and mix
3. Add to any meal you like, and keep in the fridge to enjoy for up to 5 days!

10 Lessons From 2022

MY 10 BIGGEST LESSONS FROM 2022

21 / DECEMBER / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

It’s become an annual thing for me to do each year… take some time to reflect on some of the biggest lessons I have learnt over the year (some I am still in the process of learning and fully embodying). And as always, I love sharing what I learn with you!

It is my hope in sharing that you take something away and are able to apply it to your life, even if it improves it by 5% that’s growth! I also encourage you to take time to reflect on the lessons you have learnt and what powerful insights or takeaways you’re taking with you into the new year.

Remember… Whatever those lessons are, meet yourself with love and grace, and know inevitably, they are all serving you and your highest good! So let’s dive in…

MY 10 LESSONS

#1: TRUST LIFE
The hardest, and biggest lesson of this year has been leaning into trust. And to be completely honest, I feel like I am only just scratching the surface on this one. It has been a really tough year this year for a number of reasons, in all areas of my life, from business, to personal and even my health.

But through it, I was reminded of what truly mattered, I was asked to look deeper within myself than ever before and ask the hard questions. It can be easy to ask yourself ‘why me’ and ‘what did I do wrong/to deserve this’ or even ‘why can’t this just work out’. Believe me, I feel the frustration in all of it, and I still get triggered (I’m only human right).

However, leaning into trust, as scary as it has been, has shown me that everything (yes, everything… and no, don’t roll your eyes at me), happens for a reason. It is still something I am coming to terms with on a daily basis, but the more it happens the more I lean into the discomfort, unpack it and then take the next most logical step forward. Life is far kinder when you are willing to explore from a place of empowerment than victimhood.

#2: THE UNIVERSE IS A FRIENDLY PLACE
To follow on from Trusting Life… this poem/quote from Albert Einstein says everything I could ever say and more about this lesson, so I thought I’d share it with you. (*note: you can replace Universe with anything that feels aligned for you - God/Source/Life)

"I think the most important question facing humanity is, ‘Is the universe a friendly place?’ This is the first and most basic question all people must answer for themselves."

For if we decide that the universe is an unfriendly place, then we will use our technology, our scientific discoveries and our natural resources to achieve safety and power by creating bigger walls to keep out the unfriendliness and bigger weapons to destroy all that which is unfriendly and I believe that we are getting to a place where technology is powerful enough that we may either completely isolate or destroy ourselves as well in this process.

"If we decide that the universe is neither friendly nor unfriendly and that God is essentially ‘playing dice with the universe’, then we are simply victims to the random toss of the dice and our lives have no real purpose or meaning.

"But if we decide that the universe is a friendly place, then we will use our technology, our scientific discoveries and our natural resources to create tools and models for understanding that universe. Because power and safety will come through understanding its workings and its motives."

"God does not play dice with the universe,"

--Albert Einstein

#3: REST IS SACRED
Burnout is not fun (and I got to revisit this old friend again this year)... as a wellness coach, I know the importance of rest from a physical level, and how much it supports a happy body and mind, but this year it struck a little differently.

I felt burnt out all the way to my core, the SOUL of my being actually felt tired. For a few months I felt stuck in a loop of darkness, not quite knowing how to make my way out, but persisting.

I know I am someone who constantly is looking for the ‘HOW’... how do I get myself out of this, how can I feel better quicker, how can I make sure I’m doing XYZ better. And this paralysed me this year, because I couldn’t figure out the HOW.

I had to stop, I had to rest, I had to get still, and in this stillness I found space, I found safety, I found a truer expression of myself and I am still practising it all. However, I am now far more intentional about creating the space to rest (without the guilt) and reconnect with my creative side, recharge my soul and of course… TRUST life in the process.

#4: IT IS SO IMPORTANT TO CREATE SAFETY IN YOUR BODY
This journey of discovering the sacredness of rest and trusting life, allowed me to realise just how unsafe I had been feeling in my own body. It was no wonder I was stuck in burnout, it was no wonder I couldn’t shift my frequency higher… my body didn’t feel safe.

Not only was I communicating this from a physical level (you know by not creating space and resting), but by telling myself stories, limitations, buying into misunderstandings about the things and people around me.

It is so easy to get lost in the world of our mind, and believe every thought we think is true, and if these thoughts don’t serve you they are only going to keep you trapped and feeling unsafe.

So I got curious, started digging deeper into my feelings of unsafety, where did they come from, where did my body learn this, what am I holding onto that I need to let go of, I did the inner work (and am still doing it) to help me get free and feel safe.

And whenever I notice those fears or thoughts pop up I remind myself to get still, offer myself reassurance and love, and be kind to myself. All along I had been looking for others to give this to me, when in reality this is what I needed to give it to myself.

#5: TAKE THE LEAP BEFORE YOU ARE READY & #6: IT’S OKAY NOT TO BE PERFECT
These two lessons go hand in hand… and I want to start by sharing a quote from Lisa Bilyeu’s book Radical Confidence “If you want to do big things, you have to — I repeat, you haaaaave to — get comfortable with being uncomfortable. I wish it weren’t true, but there’s no way around it.”
Which inspires lessons 5 & 6, because in my personal experience and belief system, everything you want is on the other side of fear. In fact, fear/anxiety are actually chemically the same in the body as excitement.

So instead of letting your fear of getting it ‘wrong’ or it not being ‘perfect’ paralyse you, channel that energy into excitement! You’d be amazed what will happen if you just put one foot in front of the other in the direction of where you want to go.

And you know what, if you fall, you can get right back up… it’s all here for our learning. And really, really, really question… is anything ever PERFECT?

#7: LEAN INTO YOUR INTUITION… FOLLOW YOUR GUT
To tie back into my lessons about creating space, and safety… it can be really hard to hear anything when there is too much background noise, or you never slow down enough to pause and listen right? (We are in agreement so far?)

Well then, it stands to reason that we could really struggle to hear our internal guidance (yes we all have it), our intuition if there is too much noise.

If our schedules are jam packed day to day, if we take little time to get creative, play and enjoy life, or we are constantly keeping ourselves playing small, that little voice of guidance is going to struggle to be heard.

However, that little friendly voice inside is STRONG and will continue to knock on your door until it is heard, it is just up to you if you are willing to slow down enough to listen

We have all had that feeling of butterflies in our tummies, or that little nagging that something just doesn’t feel right, only to be proven correct moments or months later, right?

Which just shows how powerful this inner guidance system really is… so take this as your sign to lean in (no matter how uncomfortable it may feel) and get curious on what it has to say.

The more I have created space and safety to hear this voice and allow it to guide me, the stronger, happier and healthier I have become, don’t take my word for it… trust your gut!

#8: YOUR MINDSET IS ESSENTIAL TO YOUR HEALING
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.” ― Henry Ford
Whilst I’d love to just leave that quote to stand alone, because it truly is profound… I’m thinking some of you may want an explanation on just what on earth I (and Henry Ford) am on about…

Your mind can be utilised as your most powerful weapon, or tool to propel you forward in this life, and if you choose to buy into beliefs that keep you stuck then that is how you will stay… STUCK.

If you choose to use this tool however as the transformative asset in your life it can be, just watch it change!

Take me for example, earlier this year I discovered a whole host of health issues in my gut. Now if I had stayed stuck in my mind telling myself that I am never going to heal, that I am just going to keep getting worse, and nothing I do is working… What do you think would’ve happened?

I wouldn’t have healed and would still be feeling like sh*t!

What I did instead, was take action on my healing journey, and when the doubts popped up (oh because they do, and will), I acknowledged them and then shifted them. I kept reminding myself that I was healing, that my body is incredible, and I was going to finish this year happier and healthier than I have ever been.

And do you know what happened? I did, and I have!

Now you could argue that it’s because I did all the protocols and took all the supplements, and yes, you’re right, that plays a massive role. But don’t you think if I kept believing nothing was working that I would’ve even continued to show up and do it? Probably not…

This applies to EVERYTHING!! Don’t believe me… try it for yourself and see.

#9: NOTHING THAT IS MEANT FOR YOU WILL MISS YOU
I was reminded of this beautiful sentiment by my dear friend Samantha Ruberto only a few months ago. Whilst she had said it to me in the past, my ears hadn’t been quite ready to hear it.

It can be so easy to have regrets in life, or get stuck in the ‘what if’s’ or ‘if only’ … but let me share something with you, that’s only going to keep you limited and stuck too. The moment you do, you take yourself out of the present and into the past, away from the magic of the moment that is right in front of you.

When I fully leant into this (again, still learning), I noticed how much calmer I was, how much I trusted life more, how much easier I let things go. Another way to look at it is this… ‘rejection is God’s redirection’ (again use whatever word feels good for you there) but this was a quote I heard from Jamie Kern Lima on a podcast and it really stuck with me.

It all comes back to trusting life…

#10: YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF YOUR TIME, ENERGY, AND RELATIONSHIPS
A long time ago I was taught that you’ll only get out what you put in, and this is probably one of the most literal things I have taken and applied in my life when it comes to my business and my health.

However, it also caught me in a burnout loop of having to put in and sacrifice more time, more energy, and more time and more energy, because the more I put in the more I would get out right? I had trapped myself in a toxic cycle.

Yet, there was one area that stood out to me this year as a GIANT neon sign, an area that I wasn’t feeling held in, and I kept wondering why… my relationships.

I’m not going to lie, my work and career has been my #1 priority these past few years, and I haven’t been able to give my all to the people around me that I love the most, and that started to reflect and wonder why I was feeling left out and alone.

And I realised, I had been expecting people to show up for me, make the effort when I hadn’t been putting the time into reaching out first and nurturing them.

Look don’t get me wrong, I am a giver to a fault, and have had to work MASSIVELY on boundaries because of this *hello people pleasers anonymous* , but that was just it. I was there at people's time of need, or as an ear to listen, but the relationships weren’t deepening like I would’ve liked.

So, I took the principle from above, that you only get out what you put in, and started reaching out, making more of an effort, prioritising the relationships in my life over my work (most of the time haha).

And I noticed a massive shift, in myself, in the quality of friendships I was having. I became more confident in having harder conversations too. As a result, because I was happier, the time and energy I was spending on the business and work was of a higher quality… I realised that the quote wasn’t meaning that more is more, it actually came down to the quality and intention behind what I put in.

Which made me realise how much more intentional I could be, and how much control (in a healthy way), I had over my time, energy and relationships - GAME CHANGER!

FINAL THOUGHTS

So dear reader, if you’ve made it this far, I thank you and I hope that there is something within these lessons that resonates with you. These lessons come from my heart and are expressed with love, vulnerability and truth. I wish you every happiness in the years to come, and may 2023 hold every blessing you could imagine and more!

With love,

Clover Ferments Review

CLOVER FERMENTS TONIC REVIEW

30 / NOVEMBER / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Earlier this year I felt like something was really off in my gut, I was tired often and my digestion had started to become *weird* - aka bloating, bowel movements were changing, and much to my poor partner's ears (and nose) I was very gassy!

So, I did what any functional nutritionist would do, and I completed a functional medicine stool test on myself - known as a complete microbiome mapping.

THE RESULTS

The results really didn’t surprise me considering how I was feeling, but essentially what it came back with was what’s termed dysbiosis - an imbalance of good and bad bugs in the gut - more bad than good.

It turns out I not only had too much bad bacteria, and a fungal overgrowth, but a parasite too, just to make things interesting I suppose haha! But one thing that I will mention that is often overlooked, is the other thing the test clearly showed…

I had far too few good bugs, which was only making the dysbiosis worse.

So I set myself up on a protocol once I was back from my holiday to dive head first into a 12 week reset (you can find the exact protocol I used here). I took myself through a number of dietary changes, added in supplements and enhanced my detoxification pathways before embarking on a parasite cleanse (which I am finishing up at the moment… also included in the protocol mentioned above).

But whilst I was doing all the cleansing, I had to do something about the rebuilding, because if I just emptied the bad bugs from their home, and left it empty, they would very easily find their way back and take up host again… hence the good bugs needed to be added!

Enter @cloverferments … They happened to see I was on my journey and kindly gifted me their tonics to try for 4 weeks to help me in my healing!

HOW I REBUILT MY GUT MICROBIOME

When it comes to rebuilding gut health after dysbiosis, the most important thing to start with is adding in a probiotic, which fortunately @cloverferments tonics are packed full of, as well as digestive enzymes, which was a perfect addition to my protocol.

One thing I will add in here, which I found to be AMAZING, is that Clover Ferments are low histamine (a topic for a whole other blog), but as someone who like many with gut issues, is somewhat histamine intolerance, it had my mind at ease that I wouldn’t be boosting histamine levels like other fermented foods would.

In fact I took a break from all other fermented foods during my healing for this reason.

I am still currently taking the tonics as I loved the taste and how they supported my gut health alongside the protocol I was following. I started noticing my bowels becoming more regular again, digestion improved, bloating eased (still working on this, but it’s a process) and the eczema on my head that had flared up as a result of the fungal overgrowth started to subside

I know the journey is not a short one when it comes to repairing your gut health which is why I am going to keep the tonics in place for the foreseeable future. I loved how easy it was to drink, the fact I could combine all 3 (I often struggle to remember to take things multiple times a day), and the beetroot flavour was definitely my favourite!! (just watch the splatter haha)

If you’d like to give these tonics a try for yourself, they have kindly given me a discount code for you to use, just pop in ‘SHEREE10’ at checkout.

The tonics are also known to support a reduction in food sensitivities and intolerances which is something else I have struggled with due to my coeliac disease, and I have just last week sent a test off to see if there are any improvements in those as a result of the tonics and protocol! So watch this space!

If you have any questions about the tonics check out the Clover Ferments website here, or DM them on @cloverferments on Instagram. If you have any questions for me about anything I have mentioned also don’t hesitate to reach out here too!

Yours in Health & Happiness,

Fermented foods are becoming so popular with all the hype around how much it can support gut health, and there is definitely a beautiful place for them, however I often find people use them far before their tummies are ready.

With my clients, I often suggest we pause on the fermented foods first and focus on rebuilding and repairing before adding them in. Fermented foods are amazing prebiotics, and kefir is no exception. I have also found it is something myself and my clients tolerate far better early on (and from then on) in our journey’s than other fermented foods which is why I love @thewildfermentary kefir!!

I love having this once or twice a week as a drink (in a wine glass, because why not), but with my new obsession with gummies, I thought it would be awesome to try to make some. That way we combine the repairing with the prebiotics and let me tell you it was a great success!

Be sure to use my discount code: ‘SHEREE10’ if you want 10% off The Wild Fermentary Kefir!

Side note: the gelatin is amazing to support gut health and repair gut lining, so these gummies are a win win! Check out the recipe below :)

INGREDIENTS

-  1 cup kefir (I used @thewildfermentary)

-  4 Tbsp. gelatin (I used the nutraorganics natural grassfed unflavoured)

-  3 Tbsp. stevia (you can use honey instead, I was just keeping the sugar way down)

METHOD

1.  Add the kefir to small - medium saucepan

2.  Sprinkle the gelatin over the juice (try spread it out evenly), and let it sit for a few minutes, this allows the gelatin to ‘bloom’
**You will notice a wrinkled look forming on the surface as the liquid absorbs the gelatin

3.  Stir the mixture together

4.  Put on a low-medium heat and stir gently until the gelatin has dissolved for around 5 minutes

5.  In the last minute or so add the stevia (or honey) and make sure this is well mixed through

6.  Remove from heat and pour into silicone moulds (I got mine from @littlegiantsstore and found using a tear dropper helped massively too. Alternatively you can use a container as long as it lifts out easily.

7.  Pop in the fridge for 2+ hours for it to set

8.  Remove from moulds or cut them up (if in a container) and keep refrigerated for up to 14 days. Enjoy!

As always, if you do make this, be sure to tag me on social media @shereehannahwellness and let me know what you think :)

ENJOY!

Should You Have Cheat Meals

SHOULD YOU HAVE CHEAT MEALS

19 / OCTOBER / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Should I have cheat meals or a cheat day? Where do treat foods fit into my meal plan? 🍩

This is a question I often get asked as a nutritionist, and my answer may come as a surprise to you…

Long story short, I am not a fan, anyone who’s worked with me, will understand why I don’t believe in TREAT or CHEAT MEALS! 🙅🏼‍♀️👎🏽 But let me share exactly why with you…

WHY I DO NOT BELIEVE IN "TREAT OR CHEAT MEALS"

Firstly, from a personal note I suffered from an eating disorder for over 3 years and I find words like these very triggering. 😓 In fact, it was from being so restrictive with my calories and feeling like it had to be an all or nothing approach that contributed massively to my eating disorder.

Now, you may not have been there, but the majority of women I work with, do have an unhealthy relationship with food, whether that is binge eating, under eating, stress eating, boredom eating… you name it.

And when we have a ‘treat’ and label it as such or ‘cheat’ it often adds to the guilt around the food. We have to be so mindful of the words we use with ourselves… Food language is another massive issue but I will leave that ted talk for another day.

Secondly, I am a huge believer in INTUITION + BALANCE! ⚖️ Your body is intelligent and whilst you may get a hankering for some chocolate the week before your period, this isn’t your body working against you (believe it or not)

It is actually often a sign we need some extra magnesium (the beautiful nutrient that helps with stress and cramps and we don’t eat enough of), and chocolate contains magnesium so this is why we can crave it.

SOLUTION: get a high quality magnesium supplement that you take daily, and if you still want the chocolate before your period, enjoy it… mindfully!

In terms of the BALANCE factor… we have to learn to put things into perspective. Remember that all or nothing approach and restrictive dieting is not a long term fix… instead, look at your entire week and see how BALANCED it is.

I teach my clients to look at it this way… Your average person eats 35 meals a week! 🤯 (3 main meals and 2 snacks)... so if you have 2 - 3 meals ‘off’ a week, it’s really not the end of the world is it!

From personal experience and with clients I have found treat foods or cheat meals often leads to overindulgence, bingeing and guilt 😣🍫

Have you ever found yourself saving up for a ‘cheat meal’ only to feel completely sick 🤢 afterwards because you ate waaaay more than you normally would out of fear of not getting to eat it for another week/month etc? 😫

In all honesty, this used to be me, I’d wait till Saturday evening came around, and then binge on burgers or pizza, ice cream, chocolate and lollies. 🍔🍕🍬🍫

Then I’d feel so guilty, I would go and purge to make myself feel better. 🤮

Not everyone is like this, but it is very easy to get into the mentality of restriction then bingeing, so I would rather discourage it. 👎🏽

WHAT I DO RECOMMEND

Simply listening to your body, planning ahead with your social calendar 🗓 , and enjoying meals as you want, when you want within moderation completely guilt free is totally FREEING! 🙌🏽

Ditch that diet mentality, if you’re out for dinner and you want a wine 🍷 or pasta 🍝 … get it (if you want it, and ENJOY IT)!!

The only time I suggest we rain it in, is if this is your everyday life. We want to be eating whole real foods at least 80% of the time. 🍏 Think moderation, and intuition as well as freedom! And remember, progress over perfection! ✨

I hope this has helped and if you have any questions at all feel free to comment below, I am here to support!

Liver Detox Gummie Recipe

DETOX CRANBERRY GUMMIES RECIPE

5 / OCTOBER / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Prep Time: 2 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Yields: 30 - 40 gummies

Detox time can often suck, you feel super restricted, there’s only so much you can do to make the food taste good, especially when you’re on the liver detox I do where there’s no salt! Whaaaatt!!

Often the thing I find the hardest is not having something to chew or sink my teeth into, and sometimes I just crave a little something after dinner, so when I had the idea to create little healthy gummy lollies I was so excited!

I actually tried and failed a number of times with this, but I am so pleased I persevered!

I chose cranberry juice in particular because it is something I am drinking on my detox currently as it is an awesome diuretic (helping with fluid retention) which supports detoxification and pulls out the water stored in our fat.

Cranberries themselves are also supportive for our lymphatic system - helping with things like cellulite and breaking down fatty particles in our body due to the flavonoids and enzymes inside.

The important thing here is that we aren’t using a crappy high sugar supermarket cranberry juice, but one that is pure cranberry juice, not concentrate! I personally used Lakewood Farms Organic Pure Cranberry here in NZ, just be sure to check the ingredients and sugar content on yours if you choose to use it.

You can replace cranberry juice with any other juice (again keep in mind the sugar content), I have also tried with lemon juice which is a bit sour but yummy!

Side note: the gelatin is also amazing to support gut health and repair gut lining, so these gummies are a win win! Check out the recipe below :)

INGREDIENTS

-  1 cup cranberry juice (I used Lakewood Farms Pure Cranberry)
-  4 Tbsp. gelatin (I used the nutraorganics natural grassfed unflavoured)
-  3 Tbsp. stevia (you can use honey instead, I was just keeping the sugar way down)

METHOD (as adapted from @boobtofood)

  1. Add the cranberry juice to small - medium saucepan
  2. Sprinkle the gelatin over the juice (try spread it out evenly), and let it sit for a few minutes, this allows the gelatin to ‘bloom’
    **You will notice a wrinkled look forming on the surface as the liquid absorbs the gelatin
  3. Stir the mixture together
  4. Put on a low-medium heat and stir gently until the gelatin has dissolved for around 5 minutes
  5. In the last minute or so add the stevia (or honey) and make sure this is well mixed through
  6. Remove from heat and pour into silicone moulds (I got mine from @littlegiantsstore and found using a tear dropper helped massively too. Alternatively you can use a container as long as it lifts out easily.
  7. Pop in the fridge for 2+ hours for it to set
  8. Remove from moulds or cut them up (if in a container) and keep refrigerated for up to 14 days. Enjoy!

5 Reasons You're Getting Period Pain

5 REASONS YOU’RE GETTING PERIOD PAIN

14 / SEPTEMBER / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

THESE 5 THINGS CONTRIBUTE SIGNIFICANTLY TO PERIOD PAIN! Lemme explain how to reduce it!

First of all, let me start off by saying that period pain is COMMON but NOT NORMAL, and you don’t have to live with it, eliminating the following will help you alleviate the pain massively!

5 REASONS FOR PERIOD PAIN

1. Eating pro-inflammatory oils like canola oil, sunflower oil, rapeseed oil and other vegetable oils for example are all pro-inflammatory (and in a lot more foods than you’d think)

They contribute to period pain by increasing the omega 6 content in the body, which when out of ratio with omega 3 leads to increased inflammation and inflammation leads to period pain

2.  Stress - if you’ve been with me awhile now you’ll know this is HUGE for any kind of issue in the body, but particularly for period pain

The more stressed you are, the more inflammation it causes, it can then decrease magnesium levels which helps with cramping (think when your calf wakes you up in the middle of the night with a cramp)...

The uterus is a muscle so too much stress = more cramping

3. Drinking cold water, this might sound strange but I got a very big telling off from one of my Chinese clients who educated me (and then I did more research into Traditional Chinese Medicine on this)...

That one shouldn’t drink cold water on or around their period

Think about it this way, we are warm blooded animals, and the period is about blood flow, our blood flow decreases when we are cold and drinking cold water cools the body down.

For my clients I recommend for the second half of their cycle they drink warm water (except when exercising because that sucks), and they have seen massive differences in their menstrual health

4. Hormonal imbalance, now this can show up in a number of ways from high oestrogen, low progesterone, high androgens, you name it, but ultimately if you experience any PMS symptoms it’s worth digging a little deeper

Work with a functional medicine practitioner or health coach like myself to figure out what hormones are out of balance and start to remedy them with food, exercise and lifestyle changes.

5. Endometriosis/PCOS, these two conditions are hugely responsible for period pain and are often undiagnosed for so long!

If you’ve been struggling with chronic period pain, please go see a doctor and have yourself diagnosed or have these ruled out, there is so much we can do to help with both conditions once we know what we are dealing with!
