I love my Food & Spirit Tribe & Community as you all might have figured out by now- few things are was powerful as a like minded tribe. We have a group “within the group” so to speak for ” the specific food and supplements geeks” – and our webinars are always packed with gems and pearls form the latest in the industry. Last webinar Dr Minich presented with guest of honor Dr. Lise Alschuler and they shared this article among others.

How inflammation in the body may predict decision making – like being impulsive, present focus and an inability to delay gratification. I can relate to this finding, both personal and clinically connecting emotions like anger, rage and having an explosive temparment being related to an inflammatory state in the body. If we connect  – the root system ( inflammation)  with the fire system (anger, liver, drive ) this is the connection we get.

Eating an anti-inflammatory diet is an amazing start but there are other ways that also needs to be adressed lowering inflammation in the body all due to the root cause.. making sure the bodys detoxifications pathways are optimal, happy balanced microbium, spending time in nature and with loved once.

This spring of 2019 has been all about giving back and sharing what I wished I new 25 years ago 🙂
One of my speaking opportunities was at SALK Tennis Academy about how to optimize recovery, event injury and how to stay focused yet still relaxed in todays competitive world. There is for sure no single recipe that works for all of us… we are all unique but there are general rules one can apply and customize from there. We can all share out stories, learn from each other and mindfully start to listen to our bodies in order to “get out” what we put in (investing time, effort and sweat/tears in our performance). The tools I work with are food, lifestyle and mind set – there is so much powerful magic with your everyday choices – it is hard to realize- but that is were it starts!!  One step, one choice at a time…

His little handsum guy – future tennis pro to be – was eager to help me poor the anti inflammatory port workout smoothie of pineapple (containing proteas enzyme of bromalin, great for joints), ginger (anti-inflammatory helping with recovery) and coconut milk – great non dairy alternative. These smoothies was served as the players came straight of the court into the lecture room with their parents… In the previous lecture the older players actually help me make the smoothies them selfs – boosting some confidence in the kitchen and applying the knowledge asap into the real deal. Experiencing that this is not rocket science, it is quick, fun, yet oh so powerful for body and mind.

Tapping into natures healing remedies through DOTERRA essential oils. SUPER potent and loaded with phytochemical to heal, rector and balance us. Like everything else it needs to be personalized. What sents attracts you today..?  We can work emotionally with these oils.. altering our moods, getting a reminder to be more intunded, grounded and mindful. Applying them regularly through out the day is a beautiful reminder for me that natures got my back 🙂 is always with me and backing me up with its innate healing wisdom.

I have also starting to use them for inflammation, detoxification and in a calming sense before going to bed. There is something about “smelling” that brings us back, in an instant, to memories , places and feelings either to restore, heal or to enjoy. Please go to AN ESSENTIAL WAY TRIBE  for more info, to shop oils or to attend a oil class.


CROSSFIT Champs getting more intuned with their bodies.

Always a pleasure to help and inspire pro athletes to get to know their bodies even better. As the body is truly our temple and especially for an athlete – it is perhaps even more so if possible. Unfortunately as an athlete you are taught early to NOT feel and NOT listen to your body. It is suppose to hurt, you are told. The secret is, in my opinion, to know when to listen och when to be more focused on the long term goal and what is the SMARTEST way to get there?
Helena Falk and Rikard Lanner are both smarty pants in my opinion 🙂 not only for representing Sweden at the Crossfit Games last summer but they invested in an ALCAT Test showing what foods are creating an inflammatory respons in their bodies. Extra inflammation is something an athlete can not afford in order to stay, perform, heal and recover at world class sports.


We are in this together, making the shift, undoing the programming of ourselves to tap into our own potential. Most of us are stuck in patterns we believe are good for us or we might even know we are going down stream instead of upstream. But we can feel it – and most of us feel lost, dont know what to do about it or looks around and see everyone feels the same thinking – This must be normal. We might reach our goals but still feel empty on the inside or fooled that the grass was not greener on the other side.

But remember – we are in this together – we need to turn “I” in to “we” – one perception, one hand holding one hug at a time.
When 90% of all disease are due to stress – it is time to make a shift. What does the stress to our physiology? Auto immune disease have sky rocketed in the last years – AUTO IMMUNE – symbolically take a look at it – your own immune system are turning on yourself –  Knowledge is power – educate your self – your are the only one responsible for your health. But we are in this together – together we heal.

Love FOOD MATTER TV – this is their newest inspiration movie!




Where are you at today?
Where do you want to be?
What are you willing to do to get there?

What is you new “normal” – please do the world a favor and don´t settle for less than your best self. Josef Cambell said – Follow your bliss and magical things will happen.

Take a look at this wellness scale to see where you are at and if you have more room for improvement.

IKEA created a visual way for us to see what happens to someone or something being bullied. I want to take this one step further and ask – How is you self talk? Do you think your own self talk will effect your health and wellbeing ? You bet ya´ it will 🙂 Some of us are our own worst (inner)critics… improving our own self talk by a going a little deeper into why we are so hard on our selfs may shift your biochemistry… as you can see in the video!

I am currently working on my business, updating, reorganizing and redoing the website as a lot of fun new creative projects are taking off 🙂 If you own your own business or are a practitioner of any kind (you might relate to this) the business part of owning your business is not always… well.. great fun. If we wanted “business” well that could have been our focus in school… there is a reason we choose something else 🙂 but facing it – it is a must inorder to survive as a single business owner.  It´s a new set of skills that is constantly chaining in a pace way to fast for me! So I reach out whenever I can, when it comes to business.

The meetings with Markus, my friend, business, social media guru – I would have to say he is my creative director 🙂 are so inspiring, creative and FUN! The fear of the marketing part of my business is gone for at least 24h.

We wanted to find a new, fun sparkling word to replace the word personal growth, as that is a huge part of my function nutrition focus.

This movie was our inspiration… If you have not watched the full movie please do – it is so insightful and amazing. So many pears of wisdom.
My new business cards will say:
