It’s Halloween, so what better time to talk about ghosts and why they visit us? Some are our guardian angels. Some are stuck here. Some are malevolent, locked in this dimension by negative patterns. But ghosts aren’t the only thing that affect our present.

 

Many of our core beliefs, emotional traumas and even illness are passed down from our ancestors in our DNA.

 

Three years ago Roxy had a chance meeting with a clairvoyant who told her there’s a curse on the women’s side of her family. A curse on love. This made Roxy think about her own relationships. Are curses at play?

 

Do curses really exist?

 

According to Lisa, they do. There are different types of beings on the other side of the veil. Some have never had a body or been to earth, and follow the dark side. Some are spirits who have lived on earth before, but who have stayed earthbound - sometimes because of drug addiction, anger, revenge, guilt. Some are assigned as our guardian angels. Others are here because they are trying to teach us something. Some simply don’t know how to get back.

 

Whatever the reason, they can be cleared. Either through an energy clearing, or by accepting the gift they are trying to communicate. You can free yourself from inherited trauma, and help ghosts return to the other side. Lisa Thomas is a world-renown transformational energy healer who specializes in healing ancestral DNA and clearing old patterns. Check out Episode 215 for her story and tips to heal your inherited DNA.

 

If you want to book a DNA clearing, go to www.foodhealsnation.com/lisa to get on the list. Check out Lisa’s website and get your free meditation to Release Inherited Money Blocks, a great tool to unblock your limiting belief about money, clear your energy and prepare your body for healing.

Life is more than just about hustle. It’s about community. Finding your tribe. The people with keys that open up parts of yourself you never knew were there. Without community, life is empty.

 

Lori Harder grew up without community - in a small town, in an overweight family who believed they were victims of their genes, home schooled, with no friends outside her religion. She was lonely, repressed and depressed. It was fitness that sent her on the path to health and spiritual awakening. But it was a long journey, full of obstacles.

 

Despite changing her body, winning competitions, and being successful, Lori still felt miserable. This is something so many of us struggle with. We think we’ll be happy when we get that job, lose 10 pounds, get married, buy a house - but if we don’t confront and heal the inner stories that run in our mental background, happiness will always be elusive and short-lived.

 

Lori had to stop and figure out what was blocking her from feeling joy, and what made her feel really good. Suddenly she knew: she wanted something she had never had: community. She wanted to give women somewhere to go, a place to feel accepted and connected. And that’s exactly what she’s doing.

 

Host of the Earn Your Happy podcast, founder of the Bliss Project, and author of A Tribe Called Bliss, Lori now helps women to find their tribe, connect with their communities, and manifest their dream life.

 

Is it possible to manifest your dreams? Yes! By feeling that you’ve already got it, that your life is already where you want it to be. Create a space every day where you can feel what it would be like. Tap into that feeling as often as you can. The physical manifestation will follow naturally. If you want to delve deeper into this, then check out Earn Your Happy Episode 262.

 

Her book A Tribe Called Bliss made us laugh, cry, and get chills. It gives you a blueprint to connect with your tribe, and tells the story of how she overcame one of the most traumatic experiences a woman can go through - you’ll have to read the book to find out what happened!

 

If you want to connect with yourself and your tribe, then don’t miss Lori’s event The Bliss Project on March 1st to 3rd. It will be the best weekend of your life. Come and have fun, experience deep transformation, release old stories, connect with like-minded women, move your body, and celebrate every realm of yourself.

She’s one of the most inspiring businesswomen I know. Tracey Edmonds is an award-winning Hollywood producer, TV presenter and CEO of Edmonds Entertainment Group. And now she’s helping people live their dream life through her new website Alright Now.

 

Sometimes in life, situations happen that make you completely rethink your lifestyle. For Tracey, this moment came when her dad had a quadruple bypass. As he was fighting for his life, she made a vow to get healthy. At the time, she was eating a lot of junk food and was taking prescription meds for digestion issues. These issues disappeared when she changed her diet. From the age of 25, Tracey has been on a journey of discovery about nutrition, fitness and spirituality.

 

Two years ago, Tracey lost her mum to an aggressive form of cancer called mesothelioma - and at the same time learned a lot about cancer, how it’s treated, and how it could be treated. As an outpatient, her mom was having Vitamin C IVs and taking supplements. Her tumors had shrunk by 40%. The second she had to go into hospital full-time, all that had to stop - no Vitamin C transfusions, no supplements, just western-medicine-approved chemotherapy and radiation. Her tumors grew back. She lost the battle against cancer. Just one year later, Tracey’s dad died from a heart attack.

 

Nutrition and alternative healing are hardly talked about in traditional western medicine. Research shows that cancer cells feed on sugar, and yet you’ll find candy on display in chemotherapy centers. Evidence proves Vitamin C helps shrink tumors, and yet this is not part of cancer treatment. Most doctors get no more than a few hours nutrition training, how can they offer real advice? Some just see sickness as a business, a way to make money. This is why it’s so important that we do our own research.

 

The loss of both her parents to preventable diseases spurred Tracey on to launch a health & wellness website and make the world a better place. Alright Now was born.

 

Alright Now is an amazing resource for anyone wanting to learn about healing and how to live their best life. Health, fitness, parenting, career, relationships - it offers you tools to really thrive. Subscribe to the website and you’ll get amazing discounts on gym memberships, insurance and even restaurants!

 

Tracey’s big message: don’t procrastinate. Don’t wait. Do some soul searching: what life do you want for yourself, what steps you do you need to make it happen? Declare it, write it, decide it - the only limits are those you build up in your mind. Declare the life that you want and make it happen.

Fiona Oakes is one of the most humble, incredible, inspiring people we’ve ever met. At just 3 years old, she went vegetarian. When she was 6 she opted out of all animal products, at a time when being vegan was considered an eating disorder. Her love for animals motivated her to open up an animal sanctuary. But that wasn’t enough, she wanted to do more. In 2004, tired of vegan bashing, Fiona launched a running club to show you can be strong on a vegan diet, and to bring the word “vegan” to the masses.

 

Since then, she’s broken 3 world records and run countless marathons, including the Marathon des Sables - a 156-mile race through the Sahara Desert. This is all the more extraordinary when you find out that she doesn’t have a trainer, doesn’t really enjoy running, AND has no knee-cap! She’s driven by her love of animals, and her desire to create a more sustainable world.

 

But despite her achievements, mainstream media has kept its distance. In fact, Fiona was even told not to mention her vegan diet on live TV after she broke a world record!

 

Keegan Kuhn, co-creator of Cowspiracy and What the Health, wants to change that. We all need to use our own voice to elevate the vegan message, and elevate others who are promoting a positive agenda for the world, and the animals. Keegan was raised vegetarian with only two rules: don’t hurt anyone, and question authority. He turned vegan at just 12 - you can find out more about his story on Episode 93.

 

Fiona’s achievements and her humbleness are what made Keegan want to create the documentary Running for Good. We’re in a society who praises people who do things for their own ego, and here is this person who does it just for the animals. For over twenty years, she’s run over 20 miles a day while looking after 450 animals. She does this all on a vegan diet, to make the world a better place. We think she’s amazing.

 

Running for Good is available to pre-order now. Check it out!

Did you know sugar is the new smoking? Or that the molecular structure of sugar is nearly identical to cocaine’s? That’s what makes it so addictive - and it’s literally everywhere! Over 80% of items in the supermarket contain added sugar - even foods you wouldn’t expect, like crackers, salad dressing, and soup!

 

In the 80’s, we decided fat was the enemy. We removed the fat from our foods but replaced it with sugar. The result? We got fatter! And sicker. That’s because sugar causes inflammation in the body, and inflammation is the root cause of many diseases, from cardiovascular disease to cancer.

 

So how can we avoid the white stuff but still satisfy our sweet tooth? Swerve Sweeteners offer a natural solution!

 

Andress is the CEO and founder of Swerve Sweetener, a New Orleans-based company focused on helping educate people about blood sugar stabilization. With their sweeteners, you can bake to your heart’s content WITHOUT compromising on health. For Andress, health starts with blood sugar balance, because when you control blood sugar, you have better energy, better weight management, and better mood. She wanted to share a tool we can use to give up the white stuff without giving up pleasure.

 

What about coconut sugar, or maple syrup? Yes, they’re certainly better than refined white sugar…. But they’re still sugar, and they still impact your blood sugar - which means they’re not suitable for diabetics. Plus, they still contain plenty of calories.

 

The answer? Sugar alcohols, but not just any sugar alcohol. Swerve uses a blend of the sugar alcohol erythritol and prebiotic oligosaccharides. The reason erythritol is amazing is that the body metabolizes it in a completely different way to other sugar alcohols like xylitol (which can cause some digestive issues). What’s more, it’s vegan, there’s nothing artificial, no GMO, and no MSG. AND it’s diabetes-friendly!

 

So basically, you can use Swerve in your baking and cooking, guilt-free.  Check out Swerve’s website for some absolutely gorgeous sweet recipes (there are over 300!). Watch out for their new products: brown sugar, and vegan keto grain-free gluten-free bake mixes for when you need a healthy treat in a hurry.

 

Available in your grocery store or online.

First of all, who made aging bad? We all get older, there’s no getting away from it. But we can do it with grace and ease. Between the ads, the movie stars, the instagrams, the magazines, the voices in our own head, the fact is we don’t feel good about ourselves. And as we get older, it gets worse. Instead of loving our wisdom and our journeys, instead of enjoying our life, we hate ourselves for every new wrinkle. So we run to the doctor and get fillers and injectables and lasers and Botox. But that isn’t the answer.

 

Lori Hart felt insecure about her body when she was young, and in her 20’s, she got talked into having liposuction. But the result was gastroparesis (paralysis of stomach muscles). She decided there and then she wanted to help women love themselves, and achieve gorgeous skin - naturally.

 

So what can we do for flawless, glowing skin?

 

Lori’s tips for youthful skin:

  • Use zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to block the sun
  • Do NOT sleep in your make up - it will age you 13 days each time you do!
  • Avoid harsh ingredients like sodium laureth sulfate at all cost!
  • It’s about health - if your inner health is good, your skin will be tight, hydrated, and youthful.
  • Avoid harsh exfoliation techniques like microdermabrasion - they literally buff your skin off.
  • Don’t use sugar scrubs - your skin absorbs the sugar in the same was as if you eat it.
  • Avoid face-peeling products like retinols, chemical peels and glycolic acid - these thin your skin and make it age faster.
  • Use vitamin C serums.
  • Take vitamin C internally.
  • Ground yourself, go barefoot in the grass!

 

Lori’s mineral make-up includes sunblock that blocks UV rays, which means you can be in the sun all day without having to worry. And the best bit? Lori can even customize it for your unique skin. No additives, no fillers, just natural ingredients, crushed rocks and gemstones. This means you get the energetic vibration of crystals like peridot and tourmaline, combined with ingredients that heal and support your skin.

 

Lori’s cleansing device not only cleanses your skin by pulling toxins out, it has 4 settings that help skincare products penetrate deep enough to make a difference. Her other skincare device is an ultrasound micro-dermabrasive blade that removes all the microscopic grime and gives you a natural facelift, leaving your skin looking and feeling beautifully smooth.

 

If you want more info about the best skincare routine for you, book a skype with Lori, email her at lori@lorihart.com, or give her a call on 310 610 3449.

 

 

Get Rid of Your Acne

And if you suffer from breakouts, then you’ll love the Banish skincare range. Remember Daisy, from Episode 220? She grew up with acne and scarring since 3rd grade. After trying product after product, she found out that some of the ingredients in anti-acne products actually made her skin worse. So she created a brand of skincare without harmful or irritating chemicals. Now, her skin is glowing, smooth, and completely gorgeous.

 

The Banish Kit contains everything you need to banish acne and scars, fade uneven texture and hyperpigmentation, and reduce wrinkles:

  • The Banisher, which works by creating micro wounds in the skin (don’t worry, this is totally painless) and causes the skin to renew itself.
  • Banish Oil, a vitamin C serum containing the most potent form of vitamin C: ascorbic acid.

 

Banish products are made fresh to order, using only natural ingredients. And if you’re not completely satisfied, there’s a 30-day money back guarantee. Head to Banish.com and get $10 off your first order with coupon code foodhealsnation.
