BeautiPhi, the orange farina, affects the endocrine system. This is important to all of us for strength, cleansing and balance. You’ll find that your attitude will improve and you’ll experience a lightness of body and spirit.

ClariPhi, the yellow farina, works strongly with the liver, solar plexus, and of course the nervous system. This farina seems to aid in concentration and focus as well as the ability to take in more easily your environment.

DetoxiPhi, the green farina, is designed with cleansing in mind. Drink it cold or at room temperature and enjoy the benefits of a healthier digestive track. You will also find yourself moving more easily and find walking and exercise to be more enjoyable.

ElectriPhi, the blue farina, really wakes you up in the morning. ElectriPhi supports your muscular and skeletal systems. This farina will help you get your day started on the right foot.

FructiPhi, the indigo farina, allows you to breathe more easily. This farina was crafted to help and support your respiratory system.

Gloriphi, the violet or purple farina, supports the ever so important lymphatic system. This one works great, and tastes great.

Natural Herbal Remedies - Recipe of the Week - Cold and Flu Drink


AWWW!! MAN!!!  It is that time of year when the seasons change and people experience viral infections of the sinuses, upper respiratory tract and allergies.  Well, below is a solution that really does work and it is good tasting!  This formula is actually a recipe my husband taught me as his remedy for the common cold.  Yet, through the years this formula has been used for other ailments with much success.  When I suggested this formula to a co-worker for his sinus troubles, he actually used this formula and successfully relieved his symptoms.  Hey, try it for yourself and let me know how it works for you!!!

(Remember all ingredients should be organic for this formula.)

•    1 whole lemon

•    1 tablespoon Ginger Powder - Increases circulation and encourages sweating

•    1 tablespoon Garlic Powder - A natural antibiotic

•    1/4 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper - Stimulates healing

•    2 tablespoons Raw Unfiltered Honey - Contains enzymes that initiate healing

•    3 cups of boiling water - Preferably filtered or steam distilled

Cut up a lemon leaving the peel on the fruit. In a blender pour in all your ingredients including the lemon.  VERY slowly pour in the boiling water.  Be sure to completely cover the blender with the lid so the water does not come out of the blender as it is blending the ingredients. It is important NOT to over fill the blender so if you do not use all 3 cups of water that is fine.  Press the liquify setting on the blender and let all the ingredients blend together into a drink that can be left out at room temperature or refrigerated.  Consume this drink every 2 to 3 hours until symptoms are gone.

Dangers of Hair Straighteners & Natural Herbal Remedies



Back in the day I used chemical perms to make my hair straight.  I used perms on my hair for years.  My mom was a licensed cosmetologist and she was very good at what she did for a living.  She introduced me to chemical straightening, and I know that she thought at the time that there was no harm in chemically straightening the hair after all, that is what she was taught.  She would add a cream conditioner to the perm to minimize damage to the hair and scalp and it worked, this is what kept clients in her chair.

Then, overtime she developed COPD, which is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, even though she quit smoking years prior to her diagnosis, using these chemicals on herself and her clients was not good for her lungs, therefore, she was forced into early retirement.  Ironically, the attitudes of most stylists has not changed over decades of mounting clinical evidence.  Using chemical straighteners on the scalp and the hair can be harmful to the body of both the stylist and the client.  Carcinogenic chemicals such as lye and formaldehyde are found in these hair straighteners and when used on the scalp and hair they are also going into our bodies as well which can cause dis-ease.

 The alternative is to use natural protein packed conditioners on the hair to get the curl to relax naturally.  Once the hair is properly conditioned with protein you can either let the hair uncoil on its own through continued use of this conditioner or apply moderate heat from styling tools such as a hair dryer and a brush or a flat iron.  If you are skilled with these styling tools then by all means do it yourself, if not, request a natural protein packed conditioning treatment from your stylist and allow him or her to professionally style your hair.

If you are going to do this yourself the following recipe below is a natural protein packed conditioning treatment that will leave the hair, strong, silky, shiny, smooth and straight!  The reason the conditioning treatment must contain lots of protein because the more protein our hair has the more strength it will retain to prevent breakage during styling.  Not to mention the natural ingredients in this conditioning treatment are good enough to eat - Literally!!

To use this conditioning treatment mix all the ingredients together in a blender or food processor and it will form a thick paste apply to the hair and comb through.  Leave this natural hair mayo on your hair for at least 35 minutes apply a hot towel or get under a hooded dryer.  Then shampoo as normal. What is cool about this treatment you can make it in advance and take it with you to the salon.

1 Cup of organic cottage cheese, whole cow's milk or coconut milk
2 eggs (If you do not want to add eggs use more cottage cheese as a substitute)
1/3 Cup of a blend of olive and grape seed oils
1 Cup of raw unfiltered honey
1 Banana and 1/2 cup of strawberries
1 Teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar
Juice of 1 whole lemon

For those with Alopecia you can add 1 tablespoon of the following herbal extracts for promoting hair growth:
  • Dulse
  • Horsetail
  • Rosemary
  • Sage
  • Thyme

Natural Herbal Remedies and Killing Yourself Slowly


When I had unhealthy eating habits which lead to chronic conditions like, yeast infections, bronchitis, tonsillitis, constipation and hay fever!  I had to not only change how I looked at my health I had to look at how I viewed my life and make lasting changes.  Once I committed to lifestyle changes my health began to change.  I eventually STOPPED having chronic yeast infections, bronchitis, tonsillitis, constipation and hay fever!  These chronic conditions stopped because I stopped killing myself with food and lifestyle.

What does health mean to you?

For most, it is important, yet, not important enough to change bad habits.  So, let me outline the steps to killing yourself slowly.

1.         Eat fast and processed food most of the time

2.         Don’t drink enough water throughout the day

3.         Make junk food your new addiction

4.         Shun fresh fruits and vegetables like the plague

5.         Don’t get enough sleep

6.         Definitely do not go to the bathroom constipation is our friend

7.         Exercise - why bother? We like weak muscles and shortness of breath walking to the refrigerator.

 Well, after seeing these steps outlined here don’t you think maybe you should redefine what health “really” means to you?  Educating yourself on how to make changes to your lifestyle is the easy part.  The rest is up to you.  Is it easy in the beginning – Nope!  Yet, wouldn’t it be worth it, I mean, making these changes could add years to your life.  Adding years is always better than taking them away.

Natural Herbal Remedies and the Power of Prayer

I had just given birth to my eldest son he was no more than a few months old and I remember after cleaning the house, I could not breathe!  I wanted to simply go outside and get some air, then I could not move.  I fell to my knees crying uncontrollably and I did not stop for what seemed like forever.  All of these negative thoughts were running through my head, what if I get hurt going outside, what if my son gets kidnapped ... etc ...  This act occurred for a few weeks without my being able to stop or control what was happening.  Finally, one day in the midst of my anxiety, while crying I said, "God, take this from me, I know not what this is on me, yet, I know through you I can get past this once and for all".  I then dried my tears, got up off the floor gave Thanks and went on about my day.  The next day I went outside, without thinking negatively and enjoyed being with my son. 

Fast forward to now, and when I think back over my life I have had different experiences where I relied heavily on my personal relationship with The Creator for my very sanity.  I have prayed and meditated and seen my life come into a beautiful place even through my trials and challenges.  I can personally speak to the Power of Prayer for physically healing the body and spiritually healing the soul.  I am sure no matter what walk of life or religious doctrine you adhere to, most of us can share stories of personal healing through praying either through our own efforts or through the efforts of those who pray for us.

Now, the medical community has gone through their research to prove to us the validity of this practice.  A practice which has been going on since there have been humans on the planet!  It has been proven through clinical study that prayer and meditation can actually help boost immunity which is most effective at fighting dis-ease.  Medical scientists have taken pictures of the brain to show the correlation between prayer and healing in the body.  When pictures of the brain were taken of people who had not prayed there was little to no activity, yet, with those that did pray there was a significant increase in brain activity.  Studies later showed that for those people that did pray there was a significant change in the way the body's immunity handled their dis-ease.  One such case is the recent recovery of Dr. Rick Sacra from Ebola where he attributes his recovery to prayer.

No matter who you are or what religious doctrine you subscribe to, healing energy lives inside us all and we can access this energy anytime we need to and prayer, as well as, meditation, are ways to access and use this energy for the good of ourselves and others.  Try it today, and experience the difference it can make in your life.
