Body Sugar Balance Tips:

Create a balance of flavors and tastes at meal times and while drinking herbal teas. Many traditional systems of medicine suggest that eating meals with a balance of tastes and flavors including sweet, sour, bitter, pungent (spicy), astringent and salty helps to lessen unhealthy cravings and to prevent over-eating.  This balance of flavors provides activation of our taste buds and satisfies cravings to promote normal eating patterns and optimal digestion.*

Nopal leaf: Traditionally, Nopal leaf was[has been] used as a valuable and nutritious food source.  Currently, modern research validates the use of Nopal leaf to maintain healthy blood sugar levels already within a normal range.*

Weight Balance Tips: Support the maintenance of optimum weight levels by creating time and space for preparing and eating home cooked meals. Avoid excess stimulation while eating such as watching television or driving. Let preparing your meals become an act of artistic expression by creating  a beautiful palette of colors and flavors on your plate.  When our palates are satiated with tastes of sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent (spicy,) and astringent, we become (are) fully satisfied and tend to not over-eat.

Consider avoiding iced or cold  beverages as extreme temperatures dampen digestive “fire” and hinder your metabolism. Take a moment to pause and appreciate the aromas of your food and beverages before enjoying them; this act of mindfulness entices digestive juices into metabolic action. To avoid overeating at meals, eat only as much as YOUR two hands cupped together will hold.  Throughout the day, alternate drinking Pu-erh Slim Ease Chai™  with our Liver Detox Power™  formula to encourage your metabolism.*

To achieve & maintain weight levels, also consider other forms of “empty calories” and information taken in from overstimulating amounts of television watching, cell phone use, and social media exposure.  Reduction of excess sensory stimulation (especially within two hours before bedtime) elevates mental clarity, supports stress management and thus ensures better food choices.*

A[round the globe and for thousands of years, the use of herbs, dietary changes, gentle fasting, sweating, and soaking in warm & cold baths provides small examples of self care practices regularly performed to support these natural cleansing and detoxification processes;]-This sentence is a little confusing to me. It is very long and uses too many words, I think many will get lost. Some individuals cleanse or “detox” at the change of the seasons, specifically in spring and/or fall. For some individuals, the increased consumption of a variety of herbal teas with increased strength to support the body and its natural detoxifying process enhances their period of detox. * If appropriate for you, use 1 (or more) tea bags per cup of tea and drink 2-3 cups of your favorite herbal and/or detox tea per day during your detox period.  Breathe slowly and inhale the fragrant aromas of these teas to promote a sense of inner calm and clarity.  Enjoy a variety of supportive formulas such as: Dandy Liver Detox™, Body Balance Detox™ and Hibiscus Cleanse.™

Drinking enhanced liver detoxification teas during a detox cleanse is not appropriate for children under 12, during pregnancy or lactation, or for sensitive individuals.  Consult a primary care practitioner prior to any detox or cleansing practices.  Do not use stimulant laxatives containing herbs such as Senna or Aloe for extended periods of time, as stimulant laxatives are meant for occasional use only and are not for daily and or regular long term use.

Time-honored Organic Green Tea Tips: Green Tea can taste very different depending on brewing methods. Try brewing Green Tea with one tea bag, or two; try brewing with boiling water, but only leave a tea bag in for 30 seconds— or maybe brew with cooler water for a longer period of time. [this sentence is a little hard to understand]Use a glass teapot for brewing, or metal or ceramic, but do use not plastic, as some plastics add a chemical flavor to your tea. (Use a glass,metal, or ceramic teapot, but do not use……..) Seek out fresh spring water for you to brew, rather than water that comes out of the tap. Try out these different brewing techniques with friends and discuss the aromas and flavors you experience; the true nature of tea enjoyment is meant to be shared with friends.

To drink Green Tea with friends and share the intention of making lively conversation is a valuable time-honored tradition.

Regularity Tips:  Healthy digestion, assimilation and elimination are considered the foundation of health and wellbeing.  To improve digestion and assimilation, avoid iced or cold beverages which can dampen your digestive fire. Eat only when hungry and avoid late night meals. Notice how you feel after meals to track which foods give you energy and which foods leave you feeling heavy, bloated or gassy. Create a calming and nourishing environment when eating— avoid excess stimulating television, phone conversations or upsets. *

Tips to Stress Less: Life is a journey, not a destination. You can access a wealth of wisdom from your cells, body and mind that is ready to help you unwind and recall your inner serenity. Turn off the phone, unplug from devices and media, take a nap, cuddle with your pets or a favorite human. Laugh regularly! Try to get plenty of sleep. Spend quality time in nature & with friends. Take deep breaths and stretch breaks throughout the day.  Try 15 minute Power Naps (we know— easier said than done). Find your smile. Focus on something beautiful regularly. Most of these suggestions are not new, but they invite you to cultivate a better relationship to stress and thus, life.*

White Tea Wellness™ Tip: Make an uplifting and delicious iced tea and sip it throughout the day to maintain energy levels. Boil fresh water. Pour 1 liter of boiling water over 10 tea bags into a heat stable container like a glass Mason jar or a ceramic vessel (avoid plastic). Steep covered for 5 minutes— green and white teas require shorter steeping time to avoid bitterness. Gently squeeze the bags to deliver the maximum herbal benefits & flavor, then allow the tea to cool. Add local honey or Stevia leaf to for taste. If the tea is too strong or weak for your palate, then add more tea or dilute with water. Serve this refreshing tea over ice with a slice of lemon or a wedge of orange and a sprig of fresh Mint leaves.
