Wellness Weekend November 4-5th 2017 (2)

Transitioning from fall to winter and into the holiday season can be demanding on one’s body and mind. Practicing self care during this time will support mental clarity, compassionate communication, and physical wellness.

Jacqui and I are here to help!

Below you will find how daily routines will support healthy living, which we will explore more in Session One of the Wellness Weekend, along with the schedule, description and sign up form for the workshop.

Daily Routines for Healthy Living

Starting the morning with a short, invigorating routine to wake up the body and mind, dusting off the cob webs, which will provide you energy and clarity though out the day.

dry brush

Dry Brushing: An ancient practice of awakening the skin and simulating the lymphatic system to drain, supporting the immune system. Similar to brushing your hair or teeth, dry brushing is the brushing of the skin in a specific manner with natural bristles. Other benefits include increased energy and blood flow, cellulite reduction, and exfoliation of the skin. You can purchase a dry brush at most stores which carry health and beauty supplies. Amazon also carries several options (click here).


Tongue Scraping: During the night the body begins eliminating unnecessary mucus from the body through the mouth. This build up, if left on the tongue, can be re-ingested and assimilated into the body which can compromise the digestive and immune systems. There is a simple solution: tongue scraping. There are several types of tongue scrapers on the market which are available at 


most drug stores, or buy online (click here). If you’d like to “try before you buy”, use a spoon from your kitchen and reap the benefits. Advantages of tongue scraping include improved breath, promotes gut health by eliminating toxin build up, and enhances one’s sense of taste.

Oil pulling: Practiced in Ayurvedic traditions for over 3,000 years, oil pulling does as the name suggests, pulls toxins from the mouth before they can be ingested. Using an organic coconut or sesame seed oil, swish inside the mouth (not gargle) for 5-20 minutes.


Spit the oil into a trash can, avoiding the sink (no clogs here). Do this after scraping the tongue, but before brushing. Benefits include whitened teeth, elimination of toxins, boost in oral health, and can reduce severity of headaches brought on by detoxification.

Lemon Water: Beginning each day with warm lemon water awakens the digestive and elimination organs, loosens toxins, and resupplies us with hydration, vitamins, and minerals. Add a splash of Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar to support gut bacteria and stimulate the liver. Drink 4-8 ounces before consuming any other drink or food.
