JANUARY 2015 NATURAL HEALING JOURNAL

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Health Journal, Inspiration, Naturopathy, Photos

Happy New Year dear friends and loyal readers! May 2015 be YOUR year! I wish you peace, love, abundance, prosperity, health and above all, may you find joy in all of life’s moments!

Here at Centre Natural Healing, we have had a wonderful 2014 and feel very excited about starting a brand new year. As always, a new year is like a new chapter in our personal book. It gives us the feeling of a new start: brings possibilities and new found hope.

At the end of 2014, I completed another detox and cleanse. For those who know me well, you are probably wondering why I chose to do this so late in the year. Well, it certainly is not the ideal time, but I felt it needed to be done. I was feeling tired, unmotivated and sluggish, and I certainly was experiencing difficulty with my digestion. All around, I was not at my best. So I choose to go for it and what a detox/fast it was! I don’t remember it being so great in the past! When what you are doing is not giving you the results you want, do something different. This is exactly what I did. I had a 10 day fast and it was life changing for me. My objectives became clear and I set new goals. I am happy to report that only half way through January, I have already reached a few of those goals. Here are a few of these new and exciting things going on:

I now have a brand new space for classes and workshops here at Centre Natural Healing. I just finished it this week and it looks great!

I am now on a fully raw diet and cannot believe all the positive physical, mental and emotional changes. I am ready to help and coach anyone who wishes to take their own diet to a new level!
2015-01-18 13.33.20

I have adding new classes and workshops within a better diversified and flexible timetable! Make sure you check out our SCHEDULE regularly for new classes/workshops being offered.

I am so excited and blessed! I do hope you will join our Natural Healing Community so we may make 2015 your best year ever. I look forward to sharing all those wonders with you!

Create a wonderful year!
With love,

Bonne Année chers amis et fidèles lecteurs! Que 2015 soit votre année! Je vous souhaite paix, amour, abondance, prospérité, santé et surtout puissiez-vous trouver de la joie de vivre dans tous les moments de votre vie!

Ici au Centre Natural Healing, nous avons eu une merveilleuse année 2014 et nous sommes très excités d’attaquer 2015! Comme toujours, une nouvelle année est comme un nouveau chapitre dans notre livre personnel. Elle nous apporte espoir, de nouvelles possibilités et un renouveau.

À la fin de 2014, j’ai complété un autre jeûne et detox. Pour ceux et celles qui me connaissent bien, vous vous demandez probablement pourquoi j’ai entrepris un nettoyage si tard dans l’année. Ce n’était certainement pas le moment idéal, mais je sentais que tout mon être en avait besoin. J’étais fatiguée, sans motivation, ni énergie et de plus, j’éprouvais de la difficulté avec ma digestion. Je n’étais pas à mon meilleur. Alors, j’ai plongé et quel detox/jeûne ce fut! Je ne me souviens pas d’avoir eu un si bon jeûne! Lorsque ce que tu fais ne t’apporte pas les résultats escomptés, fait autre chose. Ceci est exactement ce que j’ai fait. J’ai fait un jeûne de 10 jours et cela a changé ma vie. Mes objectifs sont devenus clairs et j’ai placé de nouveaux buts. Je suis heureuse de vous annoncer que j’en ai déjà d’accomplis. Et en voici quelques-uns :

J’ai maintenant un nouvel espace pour offrir les cours et ateliers au Centre Natural Healing. Je viens tout juste de terminer cette semaine et c’est superbe!!
2015-01-18 13.19.54    2015-01-18 13.24.20

Je suis maintenant sur une diète complètement crue et les bénéfices physiques, intellectuels et émotionnels sont incroyables. Je me sens donc prête à aider et offrir mes services de coach à ceux et celles qui désirent apporter des changements plus intenses à leur diète!
2015-01-18 13.33.20

J’ai ajouté de nouveaux cours et ateliers dans un horaire plus flexible et diversifié! Assurez-vous de vérifier régulièrement notre SCHEDULE pour savoir ce qui est offert.

Je suis très motivée et bénie! J’espère que vous allez vous joindre à notre Communauté Natural Healing pour que nous puissions s’assurer que 2015 soit votre meilleure année. Au plaisir de partager toutes ces merveilles avec vous!

Créez une merveilleuse année!

Avec Amour,
Isabelle xoxo

Day 7: 8 Day Fast/Cleanse Diary

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Challenge, Cleansing, Detox

Can you believe it?

Day 7: Well, I have I have made up my mind and I will end my fast tomorrow. I have made my decision regarding the liver flush. If I have come this far, I might as well go for it! Tonight I am getting ready for my liver cleanse and tomorrow, I will start reintroducing food. I am so very happy about my results thus far and I am looking forward to my liver cleanse. I really use to hate this part of the cleanse, but since I have brought a few changes to it, I find the oil goes down a lot better, probably because the taste is so much better! It is still a demanding process for the entire being (physically, mentally and spiritually) and should not be done without the supervision of a health professional.

Today was a great day! I had a great bowel movement this morning, my energy was high and I was clear and focused. I took full advantage of the day and spent it with my SELF. I did my meditation this morning, my readings and although I was not planning on exercising, running up and down the stairs 8 times gave me my physical fix. I had planned to do all my Christmas shopping also today because when done early with no rush, I LOOVVVEEE it! So that is exactly what I did. I prepped all my stuff for the day and was off. Aside the occasional pit stop for some lemonade and a potty stop, I felt wonderful the entire day. I arrived back home with excitement. Not only had the day given me a bubble moment, but I got a chance to listen to some inspirational CDs in the car and I got VERY clear on my goals.
I had been tossing a few around, but the fast helped me in more ways than one. Keeping direction is always important. This is what helps me know what to do and when so I feel I am moving forward towards my goals. I may not have reviewed my main goals daily, but with this new clear sense of focus, I am grateful to know where I am going and what steps I must take to get there.

Now onward, towards that liver cleanse!

Day 6: 8 Day Fast/Cleanse Diary

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Challenge, Cleansing, Detox, Inspiration, Life Coaching, Positive Thinking

Day 6: I am feeling great!!!

I can hardly believe that I have not had any food in 6 days, just my plants, herbs and the fasting lemonade. I have not done a long term fast in many years. I guess I had never taken the time, or I simply put too many other things as priorities. This is one lesson that I keep learning over again; the importance of SELF and listening to our true desires. I am loving this time with myself, I am proud of myself and I am excited. I am following all the way through and enjoying the process without needing to hurry it up. I have noticed that my only struggle though is the gnawing question: Is it enough? I hate that! I had never really noticed it before now. I hate it when I do something great and I am proud of it and then I hear myself thinking is it enough? In all honesty, I AM proud of myself and I feel I have done so much already. Do I want to be done soon, or do I go for the 10 day cleanse? There are other things to consider as well, important things that would need to be cleared off my schedule. What is the real reason for wanting to go a bit further? What is the real reason for wanting to stop?

I guess when we set goals that we truly wish to achieve, setting a goal is not the only thing to consider. The why behind it is as equally important. Wanting to reach goals that are our own is such an important aspect as well as wanting those goals for the right reasons. So I guess it comes down to honesty. Being real and honest with oneself and answering the question, WHY.

Day 5: 8 Day FAST/CLEANSE DIARY

Written by Isabelle Giroux ND on . Posted in Blog, Challenge, Cleansing, Detox, Healthy Living

Day 5: I am finishing off day 5 and I am very pleased with all the changes and harmony created from the cleanse. I am actually quite surprised how easy it really is. When it gets tough, I simply remind myself that like everything else, it is a question of time and this too shall pass (the time till I get to eat again). I am surprised at how little I am actually feeling hungry. When I feel real hunger, it is either time for my psyllium intake or I have a great big sip of my special cleanse lemonade. Right away my stomach feels full and I am good. I also found that smelling food that I usually enjoy eating, gives me the feeling that I just had a meal. This also is helpful. We eat for some many reasons other than the real need to feed ourselves. We eat for distraction, for emotional reasons, for entertainment, for comfort and even as a reward. Doing a fast/cleanse has made me aware of this. If I feel I need a break, I take a real break and not a small bite (thinking I am hungry as to give myself permission to slow down for a bit is not the answer). Mind you, I don’t usually do this purposely, it just happens and now, because I am fasting, it has allowed me to really notice it. Finally, the main reason I am not having any issues with food, feeling quite relaxed and enjoying the process is because of my decision. I purposefully decided to fast. I set a very well defined goal and the reasons behind that goal. It is these pushing factors that are behind the feelings of ease and happiness during this time.

I do have to add, that late last night, I did get a food craving. To cope with it, I went to bed! I also want to add, my weak spot are evenings. When all is done and quiet in the house and I am alone with myself, I sometimes use to reward myself for a great and productive day with some kind of treat, like wine or a hot piece of toast. Well, these extra calories are not necessary, or healthy or even rewarding. I will need to find a healthy replacement for that reward!

I love having extra time on my hands. It is amazing how much time goes into the entire process of food. Don’t get me wrong, I love to eat and I love the entire ceremony around food. But when fasting/cleansing, it is imperative to find positives EVERYWHERE! Aside the extra time, the cleansing of the entire body, the extra energy, the weight loss, there is this great clarity that I never seem to get even when I eat super healthy and raw (which for me is as healthy as I can get). While fasting/cleansing I feel closer to my authentic Self. I hear better… maybe it is because I listen better or I am predisposed during this time to hear better, I’m not sure. All I know, is I love what Self has given me so far as direction. It was another goal for this cleanse; to clean and get clear.

Tonight will be an early evening because although I was in bed by 9h20, I was up at 4h20 am. I did stay in bed past that time, but just couldn’t get back to sleep. I know it is the extra energy from the cleanse/fast. Like everything else in life, we get to choose what but not always when…
