PRACTITIONER INFO: Sometimes we need a bit of herbal or natural help when we go to different places and different foods that we're not yet used to. It really helps when we feel on form to fully enjoy where we are, particularly in foreign areas. These are some of my top travel supplements, derived naturally and no dependency:
🌱MAGNESIUM - involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, it's a crucial nutrient and also helps the muscles relaxed when traveling a lot. Choose a good quality highly bioavailable one. There are different forms of Magnesium, some better quality than others.
🌱ANTI-BACTERIAL: I.e. broad spectrum anti-microbial to kill off any strange and unusual bacteria/bugs we come across. There are great herbal ones, or other natural alternatives such as colloidal silver. Bad bacteria needs to be killed for good ones to take hold.. "WEED N SEED" my friend!
🌱PROBIOTICS: This is getting pretty well known now. Like the "Bali Belly", when we come to different countries and cultures, or different hygiene levels, our gut bacteria may find it very different and hard to digest things properly - taking probiotics is proven to greatly reduce risk of diarrhoea & digestive problems. Get one that's suitable for traveling, by being room-temperature stable or shelf-stable.
🌱B-COMPLEX: Is useful for antioxidant activity, nervous system,immune health and energy, as well as recovery from overindulging in those sunset cocktails.
🌱MELATONIN: Is a hormone naturally produced in our bodies to induce sleep, rest and recovery. Taking melatonin just before bedtime in your new time zone naturally helps to switch and adapt to it.
🌱ADRENAL HERBS: Also helps to switch time zones. Sometimes when travelling a lot on planes and through time zones, along with lack of proper sleep, it can set off an alarm mode or stress reaction in our body. It's also important to stay hydrated with good quality water for this 💦
Chicken Bone Broth on the go♥ when you realise you only have a cpl of cubes of broth left in freezer so 1× chicken carcass, some necks, left over roasted wing bones(I've saved from a few meals & popped in freezer) 1× carrot, 1× leek, 1× stalk celery, 1× onion, a bulb of garlic cut in half, bay leaf, fresh oregano & rosemary, black peppercorns & 2× tbls ACV.. let sit for an hour & then either pressure cook, slow cook or use stove top & when done strain broth, discard the rest & enjoy♡♡ I love a cup of broth every other day & use it for my soup bases & anything else requiring a slow cook, roadting meat in & curries yumm★ #gottoloveit#cleaneating#nonasties#healthyfats#organicveg#freerange#realfood#bonebroth#liquidgold#guthealth#keepingitreal#paleoway#lchf#keto#foodismedicine
Avocado goodness! We love eating avocados during winter as the fats help to hydrate your body at a deeper level! Great for balancing Vata and Pitta due to its Kapha qualities. #avocados#yum#nourish#hydrate
I went out to get sushi with friends tonight 🍣 so good!! I got the sashimi sampler, a simple side salad which I requested undressed, and a side of plain rice to experiment with since it's allowed in 1/2 c quantities in the sibo phase 2 diet! I brought a little bag along that had coconut aminos single serving packets, olive oil, sea salt, and my digestive bitters/enzymes. Felt a bit silly pulling them all out st the table and mixing up a dressing for the salad--oil, salt, and lemon juice which I requested from the waitress--but it was really good! I don't tolerate rice well I think, gave me indigestion, but I think that's okay to experience occasionally during the kill phase. I waited to take my kill supplements until I got home, and fixed myself an almond milk turmeric latte to take them with. Now, sea salt-Epsom bath and some Motown #sibosucksbutmyfooddoesnt
The biggest obstacle we have with sharing Plexus is getting people to understand that Plexus products can benefit EVERYONE... here's an example of someone who is healthy, looks great, eats clean and exercises ...⠀
Lisa Willcox is a 🎗 survivor and an athlete🥇 with a background in human nutrition. Heres what she had to say!!!⠀
Lisa shares.... ⠀
"I hear it all the time, "I already eat clean and exercise daily, so WHY would I need Plexus?!?!"⠀
Prior to Plexus I spent my weekends catching up on sleep, always felt achy at the end of the day, never felt satisfied until I had something sweet to eat after dinner and relied on an antacid almost daily to deal with my belly bloat.⠀
Because of my background in human nutrition/food science and being a college athlete I knew these "issues" were not going to be resolved through diet and exercise, so I began researching the importance of #guthealth and BINGO there was hope!!!⠀
Being a thyroid C***** survivor I am extremely picky (as I should be) about supplements so after researching every ingredient in the Plexus products, I was SOLD!⠀
What I didn't realize is the financial opportunity that came with the amazing health benefits!!! Not only do I get to offer that #hope to those in desperate need like I was, but now I get to make my families wildest dreams come true thanks to Plexus!!!"
So excited to try the new product Plexus has created to address my gut health and sense of well being. I cannot wait to receive my first bottle. Who doesn't want to feel better.
Check out this testimony from Andrea about VITALBIOME. "Have you ever experienced anxiety, stress or sadness? I think we all have at one point or another. Take a look at this testimony and product information: Did you know that research reports that "One in six Americans take some kind of psychiatric drugs — mostly antidepressants?" I was once one of those people seeing psychiatrist and psychologist since I was 12 (crazy right?!). Let me just tell you how good it feels to be happy naturally without all the nasty side effects that those prescriptions once had on me.
This is another reason why our clinical studies have me very excited! This amazing new product right here is CLINICALLY proven to: • Drastically reduce feelings of "sadness" and anxiety.
• Improve mood.
• Reduce stress hormones (because we ALL know what stress does to the body).
• Reduce feelings of anger and hostility (this is like plexus' way of sprinkling a little kindness back into the world).
• And of course, increases short chain fatty acids and beneficial bacteria!
How does it do that?
Here's the answer, directly from the scientist's mouth who created VITALBIOME: "VitalBiome raises the levels of the eight (8) most beneficial strains of probiotics in your microbiome. The reformulated Slim will help those colonize and grow. VitalBiome is amazing when it comes to changing how you handle stress and how happy you are. The clinical research lab was blown away by the test results. They knew we were going to see big increases in the numbers but when you added in our PATENT pending formula Plexus Slim, that's what hit it out of the park.
Take VitalBiome once a day when you drink Slim because of the XOS prebiotic in Slim." I'm an open book about my journey with my mental health and I know first hand the negative impact it can have on our lives and the lives of those around us. This is why I share these products. They've completely transformed my health. Mentally, physically and emotional

Regram from @mymondaymantra So many benefits to consuming beautiful coconuts. Thanks for sharing 🙏 * Let's talk about COCONUTS 🌴 //
Whether you’re eating the meat, drinking the juice or consuming it as oil, coconuts are delicious and nutritious!
Great Source of:
✓ amino acids
✓ excellent for immunity, killing harmful bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites
✓ its antioxidant properties slow down the aging process
✓ treats skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis
✓ helps hair become more healthy and lustrous
✓ supports the development of healthy bones and teeth
✓ helps treat some illnesses such as throat and urinary tract infections
The Pacific Islanders believe that it is the cure for all illness, which is why the palm tree (from which coconuts are grown) is known as “The Tree of
Introducing my "mommy, look at me!" face! Because I'm 36... that's normal, right? 😜
For real. What does this mean? It means if you are clueless, shy, a part-time hermit, a full-time worrier, have insecurities.... but you are coachable, have work ethic, are ready to finally stop settling, and you just jump.... you can do this. That's my journey in a nutshell. Being an entrepreneur is awesome!
I make an unbelievable income just helping people holistically and naturally address the things that keep them from feeling their best. I get to hear people tell me how much energy they have, how they no longer crave sugar, and how well they are sleeping. They go on and on about how they are losing weight, how they kicked their soda habit, and how their tummies are happy. (It's downright miserable to be me). I found a way to create a new future for myself, and I am passing that along to whomever wants it. I am surrounded by the best people, and we have a blast together.
What does Ruby mean? It means a couple hops away from a Lexus and a luxury trip to Hawaii. Plexus doesn't mess around. Everything they do is first class.
There is a crazy good discount for everyone that wants to join me!
Several of you have asked me what the difference is in our amazing original probiotic, Probio5, and the new probiotic VitalBiome, and what the prebiotic in the new Slim does. I figure there are more of you out there wondering, so here goes.... Probio5's enzyme blend keeps intestinal yeast in balance. It also contains 5 strains of probiotics, but the main purpose is to keep that yeast in balance through added digestive enzymes and an antifungal.
VitalBiome is a true probiotic that raises levels of the 8 most beneficial strains of probiotics in your microbiome. VitalBiome is amazing when it comes to changing how you handle stress and how HAPPY you are!
The improved Slim's prebiotic, XOS, helps those probiotics in Probio5 and VitalBiome colonize and grow. It's like fertilizer for your gut!
Tell THIS 👇🏼 to the person who struggles with #ANXIETY ! 😧 Anxiety is NOT just a “feeling” that you can quickly and easily “get over”. Anxiety is not something you can control or just “will” away.
Anxiety is a deep rooted issue that people, FOR YEARS, have been trying to conquer psychologically or medicinally.....but thankfully, doctors and scientists are beginning to realize that the majority of our mood-balancing hormones (like #GABA , #Serotonin and #Dopamine ) are primarily produced IN THE GUT!!!! 90-95% actually. That’s astonishingly high! Turns out the saying “gut feeling” isn’t such a cliche after all.
We can now SHOUT FROM THE ROOFTOPS that Plexus helps with ANXIETY & MOOD INSTABILITY and that we have #ClinicalTrials to back it all up! 🙌
This. Is. Huge.
My sweet friend, listen to me. Whether you are silently or openly struggling with anxiety, I want you to know there is a better way. You can naturally conquer this! Will you allow me to walk this road with you? The health of your future and your family depend on this. I firmly believe that! It’s time for you to feel your best! Please message me. I’m here when you’re ready.

These are my little friends that help me cook from scratch + make plain food, delicious. I also quite like turmeric + nutmeg but they didn't fit in the picture 😉
Using herbs and spices instead of jars, packets, marinades, salts and sugars, to make meals + baked things that little bit healthier and if you ask me, also much tastier! Just watch the premixed versions, I look at the ingredient list on one the other day and the number one ingredient was sugar, not a herb or a spice!

Today I saw a piece of my son I haven't seen in close to two years. Something is clicking. He took my hand and led me to his bedroom to play. We jumped on the bed, played under his covers (after he put them on my head), played hide and go seek - I would hide and he would come find me, laugh, and bring me back to the living room so I could run and hide again, we played with blocks, he looked at his books and played with them for the first time in over a year, we danced, had a tickle fight, his eye contact has been phenomenal, seriously.. we haven't had a day full of fun and playing without any whining, iPad, or tv time in 2 years. Days like today make all the crying, worrying, supplements, strict diet, doctors visits, bad days, detoxing, sleepless nights all worth it. I can't help but think Kaci Leigh Prosa and her daughter have been bringing out something in Jack as well. Her little girl is so amazing and patient with Jack I really hope they get married lol. I've had a rough few days personally but my little boy today made me forget about all of that for most of the day. Love you Jack ❤️#autism#fightautism#fightautismandwin#chelation#heavymetaldetox#recovering#recoveringfromautism#recovery#fuckyouautism#winning#autismawareness#vaccineinjured#regressiveautism#nutrition#scd#eatrealfood#gmofree#organic#dietchange#guthealth
