Before I started any kind of health routine, I used to begin my day like this. The dreaded alarm clock would awake me from a sound sleep. As my hand found the buzzer, I slowly hit the off button while dragging myself out of bed. A quick jump in the shower, and I was off to work. That was it. That was my morning routine before I discovered another world of health and wellbeing. As I reflect back on those days, I realize that I was simply going through the motions of life.

Now, I have a morning routine that I look forward to everyday. I enjoy this ritual of sorts because it has transformed the quality of my life in many ways. How is my life different?

Improving Vitality

When I initially awake from a night’s sleep and before I get out of bed, I do an 8-minute session on my BEMER therapy mat. BEMER is an FDA Class 2 Medical Device that is clinically proven to increase blood flow and enhance cardiovascular health. I use the BEMER mat on Sleep Mode as well. Using the BEMER technology while sleeping gives my body the unique opportunity to rejuvenate itself so I can start my day with energy and focus.

Boosting Metabolism

Then I gingerly head to the kitchen to make 16 ounces of celery juice which has become a staple in my health regimen. Since I started drinking this juice, I have noticed that my digestion has improved, my eyes are clearer, and, most importantly, the brain fog has all but disappeared. I then make my morning smoothie which consists of unsweetened coconut milk, frozen wild blueberries, a banana, plus a probiotic and protein powder from Amare Global.

Enhancing Health

I then head to my home office to check emails and begin my work day. As I am reviewing emails, I use my Healy medical device to run the All Programs application. The best part about Healy is that it is hands free which means that I can continue with my work while Healy does its job. Healy uses quantum technology to assess the health of my cells, and then automatically delivers the appropriate frequencies to restore balance.

Incorporating quality nutrition and complimentary healing modalities into the beginning of my day has impacted every aspect of my life. I now have more energy to do the things I love which is why I offer a BEMER Rental Program for people and families who would like to experience the benefits of this technology in the comfort of their own home.

BEMER Therapy – Increase Your Blood Flow

Amare Global Nutrition – Improve Your Gut Health

Healy Device – Enhance Your Wellbeing



The morning meals that I consume on a daily basis are vital to maintaining my gut health. Research shows that the health of your gut, which is made up of trillions of bacteria, directly impacts your overall wellbeing and state of mental wellness. The majority of digestive microbes are found in the large intestine, and they are collectively referred to as the gut microbiome.

Once I started to pay more attention to my stomach and dietary lifestyle, I noticed three postive changes to my health. I now consume more fruits and vegetables, eat very little added sugar, have decreased my meat and dairy consumption, and take gut boosting supplements on a daily basis. This combination of eating a healthy diet plus taking probiotics has transformed my health. Here’s what I noticed.

Three Positive Changes

First, there was an immediate change in the quality and frequency of my bowel movements. I became more regular and detoxification is essential for health. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve noticed a change in my body’s metabolism. It is not what it used to be. I realize now that I have to be very careful with my diet in order to keep my body clean.

Second, my sugar cravings have all but disappeared. When you crave sugar and start eating junk food instead of choosing a healthy alternative, this decision sets off a chain reaction in your body that has you wanting more and more sugary food. You never truly feel satisfied because the unhealthy food is made of empty, non-nutrient calories.

Third, and perhaps most significantly, I now have a much cleaner tongue. Ironically, this was not the goal when I ventured onto the road of gut health. But having a more beautified tongue has been a welcoming and surprising benefit. No one likes a white coating on their tongue so I’m doing something right!

Recipes To Start Your Engine

Here are two nourishing meals that I consume every morning. They offer high quality body fuel and taste great!

Cook the oatmeal according to instructions. Add the blueberries & superfood powder. Enjoy!
