Coucou Les Amours!

Nous voilà déjà au début d’une nouvelle année scolaire et approchant la fin de l’été. En avez-vous profité pleinement? Êtes-vous bien reposé, plein de vitamines D et prêtes à atteindre de nouveaux buts?

Personnellement, j’ai beaucoup apprécié l’été. Les jardins nous ont offert une abondance de beaux légumes, fruits et herbes. Et nous en avons profité pour faire du camping, voyager, faire du vélo, beaucoup de baseball et installer une piscine! J’ai aimé toutes les journées ensoleillées qui étaient plus froides, et l’eau fraîche toutes les journées très chaudes! De notre côté, nous avons fait le plein de vitamine D et sommes prêts à relever de nouveaux défis.

Quoi de neuf cet automne?

Nous avons les CAPSULES SANTÉ D’ISA. Une brève vidéo qui vous offre de l’information sur divers sujets reliés la santé.

De plus, nous offrirons d’autres cours et ateliers : L’ALIMENTION CRUE, LA MÉDITATION, LA SANTÉ/ÉQUILIBRE/MIEUX-ÊTRE (S.E.M.) et un nouveau cours, DÉFI-SANTÉ. Dans ce cours de 10 semaines, nous aurons à relever un nouveau défi qui touche la santé globale à chaque semaine.

Assurez-vous de donner votre nom et préférence/disponibilité pour les heures et dates de cours qui vous intéressent le plus rapidement possible car les places sont limitées. Les cours débuteront dans la semaine du 21 SEPTEMBRE. Il y a possibilité d’avoir des cours le jour ainsi que le soir et nous attendons vos confirmations avant de fixer une date finale pour les cours.

Finalement, si ce n’est pas déjà fait, abonnez-vous à notre BLOG et INFO-LETTRE pour vous assurer de recevoir directement à votre boîte de réception, tous mes nouvelles, conseils et astuces santé & mieux-être!

Bonne santé et à bientôt!

I made this great smoothie up in a flash and I just LOVE how it helped get my choco fix in and what it did to my brain. I have the He Shou Wu to thank for that!

I am always looking for special food that will make me feel like the powerful woman I know I am, and this drink is definitely that in a bottle, POWER!

It has a refreshing taste to it and is loaded with calcium because of the carob and phytonutrients and antioxidants because of the purple corn. When adding carob to your recipes, make sure you look for the raw, organic kind. This way you are getting all the taste without giving up the nutrients. I also opted for apricots instead of the dates to give a little sweetness to it. It is a great alternative and isn’t loaded with carbs and calories. I used raspberries, but you should definitely listen to your body and add ONE fruit that you love.

INGREDIENTS & PREPARATION:
1 cup coconut water
1/2 cup raspberries
1/4 teaspoon blue corn
2 dried apricots
1 tablespoon carob powder
1/4 teaspoon He Shou Wu

Blend all together and enjoy!
*Makes 2 smaller portions

J’ai préparé ce super-smoothie dans un instant et j’ADORE qu’il m’ait permis d’avoir ma dose de chocolat ET a réveillé mon cerveau! Ça c’est grace au He Shou Wu.

Je suis régulièrement à la recherche de nouvelle bouffe qui me permettra de ressentir la femme de pouvoir que je sais que je suis. Cette boisson est certainement cela, le POUVOIR en bouteille!

Il a un petit goût rafraichissant et est rempli de calcium (à cause du carob) et de phyto-nutriments et antioxidants (à cause du maïs mauve). Lorsque vous ajoutez du carob à vos recettes, assurez-vous de choisir une marque biologique et crue. De cette façon, vous profiterez pleinement du goût et vous bénéficierez de nutriments de qualité. Pour sucrer le tout, j’ai aussi choisi des abricots au lieu des dates. C’est une belle alternative qui offre plusieurs bénéfices avec moins de calories et glucides. Comme fruit, j’ai ajouté des framboises. Je vous recommande d’être à l’écoute de votre corps et d’ajouter UN fruit de votre choix.

INGRÉDIENTS & PRÉPARATION:
1 tasse eau de coco
1/2 tasse de framboises
1/4 c.à.thé de maïs bleu
2 apricots séchés
1 c.à.table de poudre de caroube
1/4 c.à.thé de He Shou Wu

Mélanger tous les ingrédients et savourez!
*offre 2 petites portions

Need Help with Your Emotions?

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Healthy Living, Life Coaching, Natural Products, Naturopathy

Ever wish there was something to help restore balance and order in yourSELF? Now there is!

Have you heard of Bach Flower Remedies?

After my bad ski accident a few weeks ago, I was finding it really hard to enjoy myself. It was a pretty bad fall and I was scared and even though I went back several times, I just couldn’t let go of the fear (negative emotions are funny that way). Regardless if it is fear, anger, hate, sadness, or any other negative emotion, these simple to use plants help to restore balance, mood, emotions and inner states. Mind you, they cannot offer you a quality you don’t already possess or rid you of a persisting problem. As with everything in life, you need to address your issues, apply solutions and set in place good quality habits. If you are having temporary issues however, as we all seem to have at moments, these little drops will help restore the calmness.

Balance is the key ingredient in everything. Even in emotions. If you are creating fear, you are off balance. If you are creating anger, you are off balance. If you are constantly thinking of the same thing, over and over again, positive or negative, you are off balance. The Bach Flower Remedies will help to restore that balance. They are homeopathic remedies, create by Dr Edward Bach. There are only 38 remedies because Dr. Bach believed all situations, even over the decades, always came down to the same issues. For that reason, it is easy enough to learn about the Bach Remedies and to apply them to your everyday life. If you prefer, there are therapist who have the proper training with Bach Flower Remedies and who will be able, not only to guide you, but also to create a unique treatment bottle that will answer to your specific needs.

There are basically two ways to go about creating treatment bottles. You can either go with the positive or the negative. Both should end up giving you the desired outcome. If you are just starting out with Bach Flowers, you can reach out to me to set up an appointment, and it will be my pleasure to assist you via a live or web consultation.

Start by writing down the “emotions” or “state” that seems to be troubling you. The best way to do this is by stating an adjective that corresponds to a particular emotion/state (the negative adjectives). You can also choose to write down an adjective to each particular emotion/state you wish to create and live (the positive adjectives). With this list of adjectives, an experience therapist can easily build you a treatment bottle. You can also study the Flowers yourself and create a treatment bottle on your own given you have the mother tinctures of all the flowers.

I have used these Remedies timeless amount of times not only in assisting clients towards their health & wellness goals, but also in my personal and family life. Bach Flower Remedies are safe and easy to use for just about everyone as well as on your pets and in your garden. In each little bottle, you will find a ray of sunshine and a helping hand towards are happier, healthier you!

Day 2: My 8 Day Fast/Cleanse Diary

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Challenge, Cleansing, Detox, Health News, Healthy Living, Inspiration, Life Coaching, Natural Healing, Natural Products

Day 2: I am now on day two of my cleanse. I am feeling very well, although I can tell the difference in participating in a cleanse during the warmer months as oppose to now (Nov.). I can more easily feel the cold and have a greater sense of cocooning. I have been doing cleanses since my first year of college when I was only 17. So we can safely say I have quite a bit of experience behind my belt, but it is important to know that all cleanses are felt and lived differently even if one is repeating the same protocol.

So why did I choose to do a cleanse now even if it is very late in the year? This is because I didn’t feel comfortable in my body and I have been through some major milestones and felt it was time to start a new chapter. Cleanses for me, have always been a way to get rid of the old and accept the new. And I can truly tell that my entire being is grateful for this ‘down’ time to recuperate, clean and repair. As I mentioned beforehand, I usually prefer to do cleanses in the spring. After all, it is when everything comes alive again, when our favorite detox plants (dandelions) come to life and when we as humans feel our energy level rise up. Don’t get me wrong, one can experience all these things pretty much at any time of the year, but for many different reasons, spring is THE best time.

So what am I doing to keep busy and my mind off food? The same as usual I guess. It is actually easier to focus on the fasting part of the cleanse then one might think. I have my special lemonade to keep me going, I have my psyllium and montmorillonite to help in the cleansing and detox portion. I also use my Detox herbal tea blend that you can find HERE. To that, I add my regular vitamins, minerals and health practice. Well, in all honesty because my goal is to have a longer cleanse, I am limiting my exercising. Last spring during my cleanse, I was able to do full out exercise sessions, but I was also focusing on doing a 4 day cleanse with a liver detox. This time, I am not sure I am going to go for a liver detox. It is demanding on the body and I am truly not certain to want to undertake that during these colder days.

For the moment, I am taking it one day at a time and we will see how it plays out. Staying open and allowing oneself to live a positive experience is what makes the entire difference in accomplishing a great cleanse.

See you tomorrow for more power of Fasting!
