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,

Top 5 Tips For Your Fertility Journey

TOP 5 TIPS FOR SUPPORTING YOUR FERTILITY JOURNEY

26 / OCTOBER / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Fertility issues are rapidly increasing, and in all honesty it breaks my heart… I know this can be a really triggering subject for some. So I just want to keep this part brief, and let you know that if you are reading this and struggling with conception or your fertility journey my heart goes out to you.

I really hope that the things you learn about in this blog support you. Sending love and hugs xo

When it comes to fertility, balanced hormones are the key… and this is where I (and these tips come in). Whilst I cannot speak from experience in terms of falling pregnant, I have helped numerous clients in this part of their journey which is one of the biggest blessings of being a wellness coach.

The following tips do not replace medical advice, and do come from a holistic and natural route to falling pregnant. I truly hope they support :)

MY FERTILITY TIPS

Tip #1: Track Your Ovulation

Now this is going to sound ridiculously obvious to some (if you are already doing this, feel free to skip ahead), but I mention it here because you may just be starting out on your journey, or not even sure where to begin.

Also, as much as I hate to say this, it isn’t really taught or talked about anywhere so I thought I’d give you the Ovulation 101 you should’ve got at school.

Tracking ovulation for a few months prior to conception is one of the best ways to get to know your body and your fertility window. There is actually only a very small phase during your cycle (you only ovulate on ONE day), but the sperm can survive for around 5 days which increases chances of conception.

If you start tracking a few months in advance, you get to know your body, what signs you personally get around ovulation, which helps you plan accordingly. You will also get an idea if you are ovulating consistently or if you need to do some work on your hormones so your body does ovulate - No ovulation, no pregnancy.

So where do you start? Your first day of your bleed is your first day of your cycle, and then most apps will tell you that on day 14 you ovulate. This isn’t always the case. Ovulation varies from person to person, this is why an APP will not confirm ovulation.

In order to track ovulation the best methods IMO are temperature tracking and cervical mucus tracking. You can also track your cervix position, but I find most women aren’t overly into this one, so I’ll just let you know it’s an option.

Temperature tracking is great if you do start a few months in advance, because then you will get an idea of the day you do ovulate and can make sure you try on the days around that. The issue with temperature tracking is that it confirms ovulation, so it isn’t going to tell you you’ve ovulated, until after it has happened, and then you’ve kinda missed your window. This is why getting to know your body in advance helps. The way to know if you have ovulated is if you have a rise in temperature over 2 tenths of a degree for 3 days in a row.

Cervical mucus on the other hand, can be a great indicator in the lead up, as to when you should try. Your mucus will get wetter and form an egg white like consistency around ovulation. This is your most fertile window. The best way I have found for women is to wear dark underwear and notice the changes on that or when they wipe.

This is your best starting point when it comes to tracking ovulation :)

Tip #2: Ensure You’re Thriving Not Just Surviving

What on earth do I mean by that? Well, let’s put it this way, if your body thinks that you are in constant danger (you know tigers chasing you, faminine, etc) then it isn’t going to trust that it is safe enough to bring a baby into the world. Therefore it will actually down regulate your sex hormones, in favour of your survival vs. falling pregnant.

This is why STRESS is one of the biggest things I focus on with my fertility clients. You will have probably heard this time and time again, but I mention it because I have witnessed this being the biggest reason my clients have struggled to conceive in the first place (or even potentially a reason they struggle to stay pregnant).

Your body’s first needs to feel safe enough to ovulate… which requires a lot of energy, so running a high stress lifestyle (hello 21st century, I get it, it’s hard), is going to need to be scaled back a bit.

Once the body feels safe (not in fight or flight), and it ovulates, you also produce a lot of your key hormones to help you stay pregnant. Hello progesterone aka pro-gestation. If you have a healthy ovulation, you should produce enough of this to help support the fertilised eggs implantation in the uterus and help continue the foetus's growth.

This is why ovulation is super important. However, we also know that too high levels of cortisol, your stress hormone diminishes the amount of progesterone production which is why belly breathing, yoga, meditation, journaling and/or self-love practices are part of the stress management tools I give my clients.

Tip #3: Eat Enough Food

Again this may sound ridiculous, or blatantly obvious, but again… if your body doesn’t think there is enough food for you in the world, it certainly is concerned there won’t be enough food for the baby, so it won’t help you conceive one.

I have worked with a number of clients who have been underweight and struggled to conceive, I have also worked with a number of women who were at a ‘healthy weight’ (I hate that term), but they had enough body fat on them for their body to feel safe, but they still struggled to conceive.

This is why eating enough food is important. You can barely survive on 1200 - 1400 calories per day, so if you are trying to grow and nourish a new life, you’re going to need to eat a little more. This really is a case by case basis, but something worth considering if you are struggling to conceive.

Tip #4: Natural Herbs - Through Tea or Supplementation

This has to be one of my favourite ways to support fertility because they make such a difference. Not only can these herbs help the body fall pregnant, but feel safe, calmer and support balanced hormones (all of which obviously help with pregnancy)

My favourite herbs include:

  • Vitex/chaste tree - proven to help with ovulation and progesterone production
  • Ashwagandha - calming effect on the nervous system and balancing cortisol levels

Other ingredients to look out for that can support fertility include; cinnamon, liquorice root, nettle, peppermint and raspberry leaf which alongside vitex can be found in @glowbodyteanz fertility tea, a natural supplementary tea that I often recommend to my clients to support conception.

Tip #5: Acupuncture

This practice is so common in the Eastern world, but somewhat new in the Western. It is something that Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners have been doing for decades (if not centuries), it can not only help with conception, but also pregnancy and a more easeful delivery.

My beautiful friend and personal acupuncturist from @glowbodynz Hannah Johnstone shares this on her website about fertility acupuncture:

It is scientifically proven that Acupuncture improves the blood flow to the uterus and ovaries. It increases blood flow to the follicles which results in healthier eggs and embryos. Furthermore, acupuncture has been shown to improve the quality of follicular fluid.

SO, if you’re TTC, it is important to focus on improving your menstrual cycle, so you know you’re building a healthy endometrium, which ultimately sets the stage for a healthy pregnancy.

And guess what's proven to be great at improving the blood flow to the uterus & the health of the uterine lining (the Stener Victorin research protocol) ...ACUPUNCTURE! As well as other diet and lifestyle strategies that I will discuss with you throughout your fertility treatments here at GLOWbody.”

Hannah has had the most glowing reviews from her patients and had incredible success with helping her clients (and assisting with some of mine) to fall pregnant. So if you are in Auckland, NZ I suggest checking her out.

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

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!

Should Females Be Intermittent Fasting

SHOULD FEMALES BE INTERMITTENT FASTING?

21 / SEPTEMBER / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

This is definitely one of my most commonly asked questions, is fasting healthy for women, should I be fasting as a female, what kind of fasting is okay for females?

You get the picture…

Well, I have a pretty direct opinion on this, and the research to back it.

HOW FASTING EFFECTS WOMEN

You may not know this, but females run COMPLETELY differently than males in terms of biology (particularly hormones)

Aaaaand… this has a MASSIVE impact on what ‘diets’ work (or don’t work for your body)

As a female, your sex hormones progesterone and estrogen play a major role in your metabolism and your ability to shift weight.

However these are greatly influenced by your stress hormone cortisol, and your blood sugar balancing hormone insulin, which play an even bigger role in weight loss.

If you fast on a daily basis as a female, you are communicating to the body that there isn’t enough food left in the world (hello survival response).

This then increases your cortisol levels, throws your blood sugar out of balance in order to try to preserve energy (in this case store FAT)

It ALSO communicates to your body that it is not safe to reproduce at this time and so it shuts down or reduces production of your reproductive hormones (estrogen and progesterone)

So, not only are you storing more fat, but you are now more likely to skip ovulation leading to PMS, mood swings, anxiety, period pain, tender breasts and other hormonal imbalances to name a few!

This is why I DO NOT RECOMMEND INTERMITTENT FASTING for FEMALES!!

WHY DON'T WE KNOW ABOUT THIS?

The unfortunate thing is, in most scientific research in the health and wellness field, especially around weight loss is done on MEN, then a small part on post-menopausal women

Which means that menstruating females (aka if you get a period) are left out of studies!

In fact it has been said that females of reproductive age make up only around 4% of the literature when it comes to health, wellness and weight loss!

Which is just crazy if you ask me! The only time a female should be doing IF is when she is post-menopausal because then you no longer have a cycle that is changing your hormones day to day!

If you want to know how to REALLY boost your metabolism, shift stubborn weight AND balance your hormones, my 12 week program will teach you how to do exactly that.

I have had a number of women actually go through my program who couldn’t believe how much better they felt ditching the fasting and eating more (and shifting weight as a result).

I dunno about you, but I definitely enjoy my food, so getting to eat more has always appealed to me, the key is to know how to eat for your body, and this is exactly what I teach you in Reclaim Your Radiance!

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

Personal Blog Top Insights From My Solo Retreat

PERSONAL BLOG: INSIGHTS FROM MY SOLO RETREAT

3 / AUGUST / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

I DID IT!! I spent 10 days SOLO on the little island of Waiheke, in NZ and all I can say is WOW… the depth of healing and transformation that occurred as a result was life changing!

No, it wasn’t a health retreat, no I didn’t do yoga everyday, in fact I drank wine almost daily, had one main meal a day with snacks either side, and for 5 of those 10 days I was up at 4am (completely disrupting my circadian rhythm)...

You may be wondering what on earth this has to do with wellness, or even health, but to be completely honest, this is where the real healing and magic happens. So if you stick around, I hope some of this magic will rub off on you!

MY FIRST SOLO TRIP

Let’s start at the beginning because it’s about to get vulnerable up in here…

I’ve invested in mentorship heavily for the last 4 - 5 years, having business coaches, health mentors and programs and courses that I have done on my own accord, at this stage totaling to over $100,000. And this year was NO different. I invested this time at a VIP level into a mastermind to help take my personal development and business to the next level.

One of the amazing bonuses of this mastermind was a five day mid-way retreat, and whilst circumstances didn’t permit me to be there LIVE, I still committed and showed up virtually. Which is what led me to booking solo time away to really dive deep into this transformational immersion.

You see the work I have now become certified in coaching, takes ‘coaching’ to an entirely new level that most people have never been exposed to, or are even aware of and I say that not to be arrogant, but to bring awareness to the different levels of the coaching industry and why I do what I do.

So, I headed off on a trip SOLO for the first time in my life. Bearing in mind, I was SH*T scared, I had never even stayed overnight ANYWHERE (not even my own home) alone before. I knew this was going to be a growth edge, but entirely what I needed, and it was!

Because of the time zone difference, it meant I was up at 4am every morning for 5 days to ensure I didn’t miss a beat and got to make the most out of it. I won’t drag this out by sharing all the ins and outs of days, but what I will share with you was the most powerful insight I got from not only the 5 day retreat but the remaining 5 days I spent by myself integrating and coming home to myself.

WHAT I LEARNED

Learn to love your own company - date yourself (because you are enough, simply as you are)!

I have never spent so much time on my own, and it was confronting, but also remarkably freeing. I couldn’t believe how much I loved my own company. After the retreat finished around 1/2pm most days I took myself out for a long lunch at one of the many beautiful vineyards on the island, I got to chat to the locals, do the wine tasting and simply sit and be present.

Sure I got a few stares and it felt slightly uncomfortable at first, but then I embraced it. I found comfort in the discomfort and it really stepped my confidence up to a whole new level. I realised prior to doing this, I had never given myself permission to show up fully and authentically MYSELF…

I wasn’t worried about others' judgments, I didn’t have to do anything, or be anything for anyone, I just got to be ME, for ME. Not who I thought people or society wanted me to be, not Sheree the coach or Sheree the nutritionist or Sheree the daughter/sister/partner… Just Sheree. And you know what SHE’S AWESOME!!

I got to fall in love with who I have grown up to be, the woman I look at in the mirror every day and feel proud to be her, and that is a gift I truly hope every human gets to experience. It was freeing to say the least, and EMPOWERING beyond measure.

So this is your reminder, to get comfortable in the uncomfortable, learn to be in your own company, and that you are ENOUGH, always!

Yours in Health & Happiness,

Bikini Body Truth

BIKINI BODY TRUTH

27 / JULY / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Bikini Body 👙 ... is there really such a thing? ⁣

There is so much pressure from social media, magazines, outside influences like our social circles or partners, or even family which eventually become internal pressures. ⁣

However, we are getting so much wiser around this issue. We identify that what you see plastered over all forms of media is photoshopped and edited and unrealistic for the majority of the population. We have the advocates for all you need is a bikini and a body, embrace the skin you’re in, love yourself and wear what you want when you want. ⁣

If you ask me, the main thing we need to focus on when it comes to this is bringing down the internal pressures we give ourselves, and bringing down the judgement we pass on ourselves.

So let’s make the beach, the pool, the bathroom, the bedroom, the gym, the mall, every mirror or reflection or photo you ever see in your life a judgement free zone. ⁣🙏

THE MINDSET SHIFT

If we are so willing to accept and encourage others, why can’t we offer the same kindness to ourselves. We decide what’s beautiful in our minds, not social media, and not magazines. ⁣

I know when I see a girl in a bikini, any shape or size I bring about admiration, not judgement, in my head it’s a ‘you go girl’ or ‘I love that bikini’ rather than a she shouldn’t be wearing that.

Not one single body is perfect, that’s merely how society has depicted it for us. What’s beautiful no matter your shape or size is your true self. ⁣

We all have things we aren’t 100% happy with, we all have imperfections, but it’s what makes us human and unique! If you really are unhappy with your body, take some action. I don’t just mean go to the gym or eat healthier. I mean work on your mind! Bring kindness instead of judgement and make changes to your lifestyle if it will help! ⁣

It is when we remove this judgement we can learn to stop judging ourselves. I accept my body and thank it for all it goes through on a daily basis. I love it because it is my one true home. I have shifted my mindset from hate to love, from judgement to kindness and you can too! You just gotta flip the switch!

However, I get it… even when you do the work around loving yourself more, sometimes guilt can come up because you ask the question, how can I love myself and still want to change?

This is something that could do with incorporating a little bit of a new perspective. I want to let you know it’s okay to strive to achieve something, it’s okay to know that you’re capable of more. The biggest thing is accepting and loving your body every stage of the process. ⁣

Whilst I definitely advocate for body confidence, and self love I think it’s also completely fine to have goals and be wanting to work towards your best physique possible. I often find people take one of the two extremes... either all self love or all about the shred. There’s actually a middle ground that you can sit in too! ⁣

You can have BOTH!

ACCEPTANCE IS KEY

Take me for example. Am I where I want to be with my body right now? Hell No! I have goals, I do want to have more of a toned stomach and leaner legs, grow my hamstrings and my shoulders. I have something to work towards and strive for.

However... ⁣

Do I love my body for how far it has come and appreciate all it does for me day in day out? Hell Yes! ⁣🙌

Acceptance is the Key! Accepting my body for the way it is right now allows me to be comfortable and confident in my own skin. After all... we decide what’s beautiful right? ⁣

I’m a fish, I love the water, always have and always will. I wear a bikini because I want to swim, I want to tan, I want to be able to have fun in the skin I’m in... And I can do this with complete comfort, even though I may not be where I want to be 100% in my physical goals. It’s important to be happy with where you’re at, rather than always looking to where you want to go. ⁣

So, rather than hating your body because it’s not where you want it to be right now, love it, show it respect for all you put it through and know that the positivity and love you are showing it will help you get to your goals a lot quicker. Make a plan, but embrace the journey rather than chasing the destination!

SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

As I contemplate writing this, it's a wet winter day, cold outside and I have my heater on by my feet. I am sipping on warm lemon water, and reflecting on my life this time a year ago…

If you’ve been in my world for awhile now, you will know I LOVE personal development, I am ridiculously sensitive and therefore the very sentimental type. It also helps that I am a Cancer Sun and Moon, Enneagram Two and Projector on Human Design (and if you have no idea what those mean, don’t worry, but it’s fun to learn more about our human selves).

I share this with you because my last year around the Sun has been one of deep transformation, tests and triumphs, yet I still find myself wanting to explore, expand and grow in so many new ways. It seems that has always been the case too.

BEING TOO BUSY

My mother told me when I was little that I was always ‘too busy’, never had time to stop, slow down or even pause for a cuddle, my eyes and mind were always focused and fixated on the ‘next thing’.

Although the cuddle part comes as a surprise (I am a very affectionate person who is always up for a hug), I’ve really come to learn that this core sense of urgency and focusing on the future hasn’t really changed.

It seems no matter whether I am 8 or 28 there is something inside of me that continues to push and focus on what’s ahead, now whilst this is great, I do love the fact that it drives me and makes me ambitious, it also has been one of my biggest struggles.

I share this with you because I know I am not alone, and I also know the rate at which the world is moving right now is at a speed none of us really know how to keep up with… and it only seems to be getting faster.

You see the more we speed up and focus on the future, the more we miss out on the present, the more we are never truly happy or satisfied with the blessings that are right in front of us.

It is always ‘the next goal’, the next house, the next trip, the next job, and all the fears and anxieties around achieving those and where we should be by this time in our lives.

I’ll be honest with you, I know I am still ‘young’ in the grand scheme of things, but there are social pressures and biological clocks that are ticking that give a woman in particular even more stress.

When I was little I used to think by the time I was 28 I would be married with my 2 or 3 children, have my little white picket fence house, be a teacher and settled down in my life. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth, and as much as this does freak me out a little, I am actually really excited for what the future holds and the fact I still have all of those dreams to still look forward to.

FINAL THOUGHTS

So this is your reminder, if you aren’t where you want to be right now, maybe you aren’t even close, look around at all you have to be grateful for. Stop, take a breath in, breathe it out, simply acknowledge how far you have come, and the fact you keep showing up every single day (even when you don’t feel like it).

I know this sense of urgency I have and struggle to slow down is in fact the one thing that is holding me back. If I stopped trying to do so much, and really simplified the things in my life, I know that things can happen a lot quicker and easier… so that is my goal moving forward.

More rest, more easy, more breaks, more time in the NOW, rather than the WHEN (when this happens, when I achieve this, when I can afford ‘x’...) and embracing the person, the body, the life that I already have.

So as I celebrate my birthday this week, I step into an even deeper feeling of gratitude, not for materials that I am thankful to receive, but for every single one of you that is here… reading this, part of the community, that I may have had the privilege to work with or yet to have the privilege to work with, the fact that I have a deep sense of connection to my purpose and mission which is to help human’s heal (particular females), and it is my hope that with every step we can support and uplift one another.

Thank you for being here, thank you for being you and sending you love and light in all your endeavours :) 🙏

With this I will leave you with my favourite quote from Kung Fu Panda (not sure of the original proverb author) … Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, Today is a gift, that’s why it’s called the PRESENT!

Yours in Health & Happiness,
Sheree xo

Top 3 Foods For Thyroid Health

WANT A HEALTHY METABOLISM? 🙋🏼‍♀️TOP 3 FOODS FOR THYROID HEALTH!

29 / JUNE / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Your thyroid health is SO important for boosting and optimising your metabolism! ✔️

If you have trouble shifting weight, even when you’re eating well and exercising regularly, it could be that your thyroid is underactive 🥺

A lot of the women I work with have no idea that this is what’s contributing to the issue as their bloods have come back ‘normal’ 🙄

Not to mention 3 of the key nutrients (iodine, selenium and zinc) you need to have a healthy balanced thyroid are deficient in our soils 🪴 and if it’s not in the soil, it’s NOT in the food!

TOP 3 FOODS FOR THYROID HEALTH

It’s no wonder we are seeing an increase in slow metabolisms and underactive thyroids across the globe!

Which is why I suggest adding these 3 foods into your diet on a daily basis if possible to support your thyroid and overall metabolism!

  1.  Brazil Nuts - just two of these a day helps you meet your recommended daily intake of your selenium, super easy to add to your morning or afternoon snack.
  2.  Kelp Salt - 1 tsp per day of this spread across your meals gives you your recommended daily intake of iodine which is not only important for your thyroid health but also for your breast health too.
  3.  Eggs (zinc + iron) - having eggs for breakfast or as a snack throughout the day can help you increase the amount of zinc and iron you get into your diet, you need both of these nutrients for your thyroid to be functioning normally and I see so many women low in iron in particular that have trouble with their thyroid health, so eat your eggs!

FINAL THOUGHTS

Your thyroid needs selenium, iodine, iron and zinc to do its job properly, keep the thyroid hormones doing their thing, and so I am always a fan of prioritising getting our nutrients through foods as much as possible!

Why You Need To Be Pooping Daily For Weight Loss

WHY YOU NEED TO BE POOPING DAILY FOR WEIGHT LOSS

22 / JUNE / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

LISTEN UP… 📣 If you are not pooping 💩 daily, it’s time to sound the alarm bells 🚨🚨🚨

Particularly if you want to shift weight, support your hormones or just be healthy in general. 😅

WHY DAILY BOWEL MOVEMENTS ARE SO IMPORTANT

One of the biggest issues I hear about from clients is irregular bowel movements, specifically constipation. 

Now, I know this isn’t fun to talk about or admit, but if you let this fester over time it can cause havoc in your body. 😱🥺

Think about it this way, your bowel movements 💩 are one of the ways your body eliminates toxins ❌- TOXINS (aka a substance that is harmful to your body)

If you aren’t eliminating these toxins through your bowel movements 💩 at least once a day you are essentially just letting them sit there ready to be reabsorbed. 😵

I like to think about it as a bus 🚌 (stool) travelling down a road (your intestine) with a bunch of passengers 👩🏼‍🤝‍👨🏾 inside (the toxins)... If the bus is moving at a steady pace those passengers are going to get to their destination on time 🙌🏽🥳, however if the bus is stopped the passengers are able to get off the bus and go for a wander 😱👩🏼‍🤝‍👨🏾

Passengers don’t jump out of a moving bus, and we don’t want your toxins going on a walkabout back into your bloodstream only to be stored in your body again. 🙅🏼‍♀️🙅🏼‍♀️
Because when this happens, they wind up in a fat cell and become hard to move (therefore the body fat becomes hard to move)🤦🏼‍♀️

TIPS ON SUPPORTING MOTILITY

Is all of this making sense so far? 🙌🏽🥰

Your motility (bowels moving daily) is KEY 🔑 to your toxin excretion 👌🏽

So how do you support your motility?

-  Make sure you are drinking plenty of water (at least 2L per day) 💦

-  Eat a variety leafy green vegetables 🥬 - these should be in at least 2 of your main meals

-  Add some nourishing carbohydrates like sweet potato, potato🥔pumpkin or rice to your main meals to help bind the stool together so they are much easier to pass ✨

Top 3 Productivity Hacks For Busy Women

TOP 3 PRODUCTIVITY HACKS FOR BUSY WOMEN!

8 / JUNE / 2022
SHEREE'S HEALTH DIARIES

Don’t you just wish there were more hours in the day? 😔 This is something I hear time and time again from the beautiful women I work with!

I know when I first started my business, I used to have a to-do list a mile long that I could never seem to get on top of 😓

Tie that into having a business, my own wellness, a social life and rest and well…

That’s when burnout 🔥 happened!

So, I thought to help save you from the same fate, I would share some of my favourite productivity hacks to help you get more done, in less time! 😍

TOP 3 PRODUCTIVITY HACKS

1️⃣ Journal + Plan Out Your Day (first thing in the morning or the night before)

⏰ TIME BLOCKING: break your tasks into groups and allocate a block of time to get the tasks done, this may look like inboxes, client time, exercise, course work etc

❓ REFLECTIVE QUESTIONS: starting your day in reflection to see what’s been working and what needs to be changed means you’re less likely to repeat the same mistakes and therefore save time

🤟🏽 POWER OF 3: choose THREE things that you are focused on that day, anymore is just a bonus, the more you try and take on the more overwhelmed and disappointed you get when you don’t get it all done ☺️

2️⃣ Use the first hour of your morning as your POWER HOUR 👊🏽

Your brain 🧠 is in theta state for the first hour you wake up, meaning brain function is optimised, so include some sort of…

MINDFULNESS 🧘🏼‍♀️ , MOVEMENT 🏃🏼‍♀️and MEAL 🍳 to help start your day on a positive note, with great circulation and blood flow, as well as balanced hormones and energy to keep you as focused as possible!

3️⃣ Prioritise Your Health!

This is a big one! Your health is your wealth… and without it you can say goodbye to your productivity, energy and ability to thrive in your workplace.

So keep it simple but effective! 👌🏽

☑️ Sleep for 7 - 9 hours a night to wake up fresh the next day

☑️ Drink 2 - 3L of water to keep you hydrated (our bodies are 70% water)

☑️ Listen to your body and learn to sync your work to your hormonal cycle (it’s a thing - I promise).

Let me know in the comments below what you are going to implement first!
