Throw Perfection Out the Window!

Do you let the need for perfection limit what you accomplish – on a day to day basis, as well as on a larger scale in your life? Perfection can hinder our great ideas from becoming reality.

I’m in Toastmasters, and my speech, “Throw Perfection Out the Window!” has become my most popular speech to give at clubs, particularly when clubs have trouble filling their speaking slots. After all, if more people are afraid of public speaking than death, it makes sense they might put off giving a speech until it’s ‘perfect’.

"Take perfection and throw it out the window. There is always something you can make better or do differently - strive to IMPROVE, not attain the impossible" - Denise Allen

In my speech, I talk about how my first 5 or 6 speeches I wrote and memorized word for word, practicing each for 2 to 3 hours. Then, the first project I worked from an outline, my “ah’s” and “um’s” went through the roof!

Recognizing it would be impractical to memorize every health talk I want to give, I took on a personal challenge to take every speech opportunity that came up last minute. It has been a fabulous learning experience! I recommend it for anyone who could use throwing perfection out the window, as well as for anyone who wants to improve their skills in public speaking.

Nobody is perfect so throw perfection out the window
The greatest of things is achieved with a light heart not perfectionism!

After four years of taking impromptu speech projects, I recently gave “Throw Perfection out the Window” for the second time in my home club. It triggered the realization that all those last minute speeches have made a tremendous difference in my ability to get my message across while speaking, yet I still struggle trying to write the perfect email, and take too long to get my blog posts ready.

I hadn’t transferred throwing perfection out the window to the rest of my life and my business. And I can see that need for perfection has certainly been slowing the progress of my business.

I am reminded of the words of Ryan Eliason, social entrepreneur coach, who would encourage us to take action rather than waiting until you have every piece perfect and in place, saying, “Give yourself permission to do things badly. Anything worth doing is worth first doing badly.”

“Give yourself permission to do it badly.”

Bill Baren, multi-million dollar earner in the coaching arena, has an awesome tip which he runs his business by: Aim for making your product (or in my case, my blog posts and emails) 30% better each time. No matter how bad your initial product is, if you make adjustments with the intent of making it 30% better with each delivery, pretty soon you’ll have a really great product.

That’s what I’m going to do with my blog! Throwing perfection out the window, each blog post will be a work in progress until it’s done. I’ll be treating the post like a conversation. If you leave comments or questions, I may incorporate the answers into the post.

This approach will also be helpful as I am learning to use the new Gutenberg wordpress platform and a new theme. A mindset of evolution instead of perfection, growing and refining…this is a new way to think as I reinvent the face and the brand of Natural Living Solutions.

Add your thoughts and let me know if this mindset is something you want to try on as well!

A Detox Solution for Vaccine Injured Children & Adults

Do you have a vaccine injured child? Or maybe you are suffering effects that could be related to vaccines. I’m writing this blog post because there are things you can do to pull the mercury and other toxins out of your system. As we start to remove the toxins, the body can start to regain and restore balance.

What can that look like? For some children who had noticeable side effects from vaccines, I’m hearing from parents who’s kids are starting to talk (often within a week), become more social, even returning to the smiling, happy person they used to be.

I spoke with one woman who had severe issues for years after getting the HPV vaccine at age 12. The detox solution I am sharing here as been instrumental in giving her relief from extremely painful and uncomfortable periods.

As much as possible, we do what we feel is best to take good care of ourselves and our family, and it can be a nightmare when something goes wrong. The complications from vaccines can be one of those nightmares.

It’s true, vaccines can be important to reduce the spread of disease. Unfortunately, the full vaccine schedule for children (72 vaccines in the state of Washington), starting from birth, can be an extreme assault on infants and growing children. Even one or two vaccines – especially when added to the toxic load passed on from the mother, plus diet and the environment – can overload a child’s brain and immune system..

Mercury is one of the toxic heavy metals found in many vaccines. Below, you can see what mercury vapor can do to brain neurons. Mercury affects every organ of the body, but it is particularly attracted to brain and nervous system tissue.

How can we safely remove mercury and other heavy metals from our body and brain? Chelation has to be done very carefully. Even cilantro and natural foods that help chelate heavy metals have been known to dump heavy metals into the blood stream too quickly, causing toxic levels to build up, sometimes with serious side effects.

The Key to Safe Detox is ZEOLITE

Zeolites are mineral deposits which form cage like structures that attract and hold heavy metals and toxins. It’s part of the natural way the earth cleanses itself.

According to PUB MED Studies zeolites have been clinically proven to remove heavy metals & toxins. Zeolites were used to clean up nuclear accidents such as Chernobyl.

There have been many zeolite products on the market but zeolites are not normally able to pass through the blood brain barrier so our brains, cranial nerves etc were likely not able to be cleansed!

ATRS Zeolite Detox, water soluble, 1 bottle

Advanced TRS (Toxin Removal System) is a nano-sized (very tiny) water soluble zeolite product made using a patented process. This enables ATRS to enter the cells and cross the blood brain barrier. It safely removes heavy metals and other positively charged toxins. When the toxins are removed, the body can start to heal.

The toxins in vaccines are varied, and affect our bodies in different ways. And everyone is different, based on their unique combination of stressors (diet, environmental, emotional, genetic influences). ATRS is demonstrating powerful benefits for children and adults who have been vaccine injured. When combined with a good diet, people can see results even faster. Future posts will share more ideas on these related topics.

If you would like to participate in a 100 person case study (or do it for your children) contact us. Our goal is to document what works, so that we can help more people! The negative effects from vaccines can affect the rest of you and your child’s life. The sooner the toxins are removed, the less the potential long term consequences.

I find Advanced TRS helpful for ongoing detox of heavy metals as well as to neutralize or prevent the toxic reaction when I am exposed to gas fumes or other toxic exposure.

Evidence-Based Results…with Chocolate???

Evidence-Based Results with Healthy Chocolate

Is it possible to see real transformation in our health by eating chocolate? We have all heard that dark chocolate is supposed to be good for you, yet how many have seen dramatic health improvements by switching from milk chocolate (or other candy) to dark chocolate?

Chocolate is delicious! It’s mood enhancing. We crave it whether we are happy or sad. How, though, can we take advantage of the true benefits of cacao? Beyond Healthy ChocolateTM products allow us, for the first time, to get all the benefits from raw cacao in the form of delicious dark chocolate.

Dr Dan Sollee, a chiropractor in Colorado, has been seeing the evidence-based results of consuming Healthy ChocolateTM in his family and clients for over 10 years He enjoys making the science behind dark chocolate easy to understand, and what he shared Wednesday morning is the inspiration for this post.

What are Evidence-Based Results?

‘Evidence-based’ means there is scientific research behind it. All Beyond Healthy ChocolateTM products have scientific studies behind them. Thousands of studies document the anti-aging properties and inflammation reducing benefits (especially to the cardiovascular system and the brain) from the consumption of specific quantities of antioxidants and flavonols found in cacao.

The amount of antioxidants (measured in ORAC6) and flavonols in each piece of Healthy Chocolate and serving of the high antioxidant Dark Chocolate Shake are third party verified, making it possible to maintain therapeutic levels of antioxidants and flavonols in the bloodstream throughout the day.

Dr. Dan says…”Healthy Chocolate everyday keeps the Doctor away!”

6gPowerSquare-672Flavonols

How many flavonoids are in one X Power Square™? Most of the studies confirming cacao’s effectiveness used dosages ranging from 600-900 mg of flavonoids. The good news is that X Power Squares™ provide the optimal number of flavonoids supported by science. One 6g square contains 672 mg** of flavonoids.

Studies show the flavonols and the other beneficial compounds in chocolate stay in your system for 5 to 6 hours. Eating 3 or 4 pieces of Healthy Chocolate, spread throughout the day, can keep therapeutic levels of antioxidants coursing through your body, restoring and protecting our health, one cell at a time. This is how thousands of happy Healthy Chocolate consumers are seeing life-changing, evidence-based results!

Can’t I get the same results with any 70% or higher dark chocolate?

Unfortunately, the answer is NO. Not all chocolate is created equal. Most dark chocolate has been roasted, alkalized and fermented in order to reduce its bitterness. Unfortunately, those processes can destroy 60-90% of the antioxidants and beneficial compounds in cacao.

Dr. Eric Ding, a scientist in the Department of Nutrition of Harvard School of Public Health, reviewed studies averaging a dose of 400 milligrams of flavonoids a day. Dr Ding points out, regarding normally processed chocolate, “The problem is, that’s about the equivalent of eight bars of dark chocolate or 30 bars of milk chocolate,” he says. “When you eat these actual chocolate bars, all the calories and sugar come with them.”

What makes Beyond Healthy Chocolate different is the proprietary cold process that keeps the powerful broad spectrum antioxidants and flavonoids intact. A special blend of cacao, blueberry and acai berry is added to all of our cacao based products for an even greater antioxidant punch! Healthy Chocolate retains the natural cocoa butter (full of medium chain triglycerides) and is made with low glycemic whole cane sugar crystals, making it Keto-friendly chocolate.

So, is it possible to see real transformation in our health by eating chocolate?

Dr Dan reminded us that the biggest problem in trying to lose weight and keep it off is inflammation. Inflammation is at the root of over 300 chronic conditions plaguing our modern society. It’s not enough to just drop pounds. It’s important to also give your body what it needs for health.

We heard two more great weight loss testimonials on Tuesday because Healthy Chocolate and the Beyond 28 Day Fearless Success System provides your body with the antioxidants that can help fight chronic inflammation, plus the nutrients to help your body rebuild and restore health, energy and vitality.

The fun part of an evidence-based lifestyle change that involves Healthy Chocolate is that you get to eat chocolate! You don’t have to give up having a sweet treat! A 50 person weight loss and lifestyle study, published in the Bariatric Journal of Medicine, demonstrated that this program works: All 50 people stayed on for the whole 12 week study (unheard of for a weight loss study!) and all 50 lost weight, and inches off their waist. Read the results…

If you want to see Life-Changing Results with a health regimen you can stick to, include Healthy Chocolate!

Overview – A Video of Planetary Perspective

I found a link to this in my email today, one of the gems that has been sitting around in my inbox, and I’m glad I decided to click on it. When we look at life from a different perspective, it can inspire us to a new way of being. That happened when people got to see the earth from outer space for the first time. The pictures astronauts took of the earth back in 1968 still inspire us today. This video helps put that in perspective, and not take it for granted. Instead, what if we let it inspire us to take care of this magnificent planet that we call home.

I encourage you, if you have ideas that can make the world a better place, to take action, and put your ideas to work. See who else wants to play in your sandbox. It’s time for social entrepreneurs – people who want to make a difference in the world, whether it’s with energy or health, the environment, food, or the economy – to share what they know. And many people are looking for those solutions… The whole world can change if we do!

And let’s have fun doing it!
