Beauty!!! Inside & Out! xoxoxox

A picture is worth a thousand words. . . This picture could be you!

Dayna Love and her friend Ruth joined us for our last meeting before the 2 month hiatus to share in "Ageloc" technology!

Non-surgical face lifts!!!

Dayna can be reached directly at 480.245.1516 . . .she is happy to treat anyone who was not able to attend the meeting!

Dayna came and lead our women's group . . . she talked to us about non-surgical face lifts and how to take care of our skin in the most natural non-evasive way possible. She shared her thoughts on why somethings like Botox and microdermabrasion are not so great for us. She said that we are all born with what is called mother cells in our skin and when we do invasive chemical peels or repeated microdermabrasion it removes these cells and thus in the end we are accelerating our aging process, which we do not want to be doing! Again, this is her opinion, and she feels passionate about her work!

So she showed us how we can do our own non-surgical face lifts and gave us all a facial. Her friend Ruth came to help her so that everyone who wanted a facial could get one with in the hour that we meet.

It was a lot of fun and everyone could notice the difference because she did one half of the face first. (It was trippy!!) :)

Feel free to look at the site - . . . I have not had time to research all the things that she shared with us, but you can trust that Dayna is a kind and ethical woman! It is fantastic to know our options!!!

Please contact Dayna directly with any questions or requests!

** Healthy Supplements **

Felling Euphoric Naturally! (?)

Britony did an amazing job of forming the "newsletter" below as a guide, and also in leading tonight's meeting . . . thanks Brit!

~Also, many of the gals were asking about Dr.Jain, Suneil MD - Scottsdale Natural Medicine, the doc we use in Scottsdale at Rejuvina Health (his assistant Kimberly rocks too) . . .

~And, Sarah's website for Foodbeautiful is amazing!!! She is a personal friend of Britony's and is an amazing resource for holistic food & supplement knowledge/advise.

Britony's "newsletter" for our group below:

"**Perfect Prenatal, New Chapter, 3/day...Whether I'm pregnant or not this may be the best mulit-vit for our bodies as women in our "child-bearing" years. It's pretty complete, even if you're not pregnant. The ones that you get from an OB's office are typically "lab-created" vitamins and minerals and your body has a tough time absorbing them and assimilating them into your system to really work at full potential. Much of it may just be passed right through your body and not be absorbed at all. The best supplements you can take are "Whole Food" supplements. They will say "Whole Food" (or sometimes "Mega Food") on the label and you can be sure that they are completely derived from plants/herbs, roots, &/or grains. Nothing "lab-created".

**Perfect Food, Garden of Life, 10/day...Obviously the best thing you can consume is raw fruits and veggies. The more you can consume and add to your diet the better. Of course, eat as many veggies as possible, but this Super Green Formula is packed with Phytonutrients, sprouted grains and probiotics and is again a "Whole Food". This company puts out some of the best supplements out there. If you like doing less 'pills' you may want to try the green powders that are out there. The Green powder I really like is Green Vibrance, Vibrant Health, 1 scoop +/day...You can put it in your morning juice drink/shake and it may not be too bad. (You just have to get used to the taste). Also try Rainbow Vibrance (fruits), Vibrant Health, 1 scoop +/day. This may help with making the greens more palpable.

**Bone Strength (Calcium), New Chapter Organics, 6/Day...yet another "Whole Food".

**C Food Complex (Vitamin C), New Chapter Organics, 4/day.

**Complete Probiotics, Mercola Premium Select, 1/day (66 Billion CFU)...Probiotics are some of the best things you can put in your system to get good bacteria working for you instead of all the bad. Sugars, alcohol, coffee, etc are really acidic and increase the amount of bad bacteria in your intestines.

**Cod Liver Oil, Carlson, 10 +/day...I know, a lot. This is KEY to having a healthy and brilliant baby if you're pregnant. (If preg.with the baby's brain forming right now there is noting better you can give it than omega 3's. And if you're breastfeeding, more of the same.) This brand has been proven to be one of the absolute best out there. The others have harmful levels of mercury and toxins. You can also try Krill Oil, Mercola Premium Select, 3/day. When I'm pregnant I tend to lead towards the Carlson's Cod Liver Oil with Lemon and take 15/day. It's great for 'lubricating' the whole system. I'm not a doctor but I truly believe that this aided in the ease of all three of my deliveries. They pretty much "slide" right out. (Sorry if that was more than you'd like to know.) :)

You can find these supplements at most of your more healthy markets (Sprouts, Sunflower, and Whole Foods). Sprouts is my favorite place. They seem to have the best prices. However, the Mercola products have to be ordered from their website. They have some fabulous products as well as very good skin care products. Their whole line is fantastic. When you're on there make sure you sign up for their newsletters. You're receive them twice a week via e-mail. It's always very insightful.

And lastly, some were asking about the cleanse I did. The products used are from Arise and Shine.
You can get the products online or drive all the way down to East Mesa. You can find all that info on their website.
If you go to their website you can click on 'About Cleansing' to get a bunch in great info and questions answered about their cleanse. If you want to read the cleansing guide, just click on 'Products', click on the photo for the 'Cleansing Kit' and after scrolling down they have the link to their 'Cleansing Guide'. You should get all the info you need to see if it's something that would be good for you and get going. It's not easy!!! But the rewards are spectacular. I really like their products. You may want to start with a 7 Day Cleanse to get a taste for cleansing if you have not done one before. And please know that not all cleanses are what they appear to be. Tons of them are scams and could potentially do more harm than good.
Make sure you consult your naturopathic doctor or MD first.
Please know that I am not a doctor! These are products that I've found that work well for me and am in no way telling you you should take these products. You may want to check with your physician before taking any/all of these items I have mentioned above.
(I have to cover my booty!) ;)

Here's to health, Britony"
