Why is it more important than ever to detoxify our body regularly? - Jan 15, 2008 - 8:40:13 PM

angelika2column_1.jpg
Did you now that in one day we take as much toxins and pollutants into our bodies as our ancestors of the last century in their entire lifetime?
Do you know where most of these toxins are stored? You guessed right if you thought of our fat cells.

 

Our liver is the greatest detoxifier, but often overwhelmed by the continuous onslaughts of foreign substances which our, so-called, civilized life style entails. Is it any surprise then that we get sicker and more obese as we get older?

 

It is no secret, but straight mathematics: by the age of 65 the average person has eaten about 50 tons of food. That’s one hundred thousand pounds of either good, or bad food having been processed by our organs and passed through our intestines...

This year will be different! - Jan 7, 2008 - 11:01:07 AM

angelika2column.jpg
I hope….this year will be different! Has this, or a similar phrase cross your mind? How did it feel? Like a defense for unfulfilled promise? Or an attempt to convince yourself that it just had to get better, because it could not get much worse?

Were there any fleeting thoughts that this year may turn out just like the previous year, and trying harder may only lead to more disappointment? This is not unusual at all, because we set ourselves up for this.  We are often so busy preparing for the commercial and social aspects of the year-end activities, that we do not take the time to be with ourselves. We can only reflect and become consciously aware of our truth when we go inward, become still, ask questions, and listen...

Thoughts about Forgiveness - Mar 31, 2007 - 6:29:39 PM

Angelika ChristieTo truly forgive is one of the most important, yet challenging lessons of our lives. We all have to learn them sooner or later. Why? Because otherwise there is no chance for freedom and happiness.

Every time your thoughts go into the past to remember a hurtful situation where you felt wronged, your emotions follow those thoughts; you relive the situation as if it is happening all over again. The damaging effects on your body by reliving a painful past are grave!

Love is in the air - Feb 13, 2007 - 9:43:33 AM

angelika4.JPG
Love is one of the most misunderstood words used today. The very essence of our Being is love and wholeness. Yet we withhold love so often in order to protect ourselves from hurt and pain; leaving us yearning and unfulfilled. If you practice staying open to love, you begin to look like love; irresistible, beautiful, healthy, radiant and strong.


February 14 is Valentines Day, the day on which we celebrate and explore love in all it’s many ideals. How a day for lovers came to be celebrated during the middle of February is an interesting and ages old story...

Breath of Life (Part four) - Jan 23, 2007 - 9:28:48 AM

Angelikablackmini.JPG
I am so glad I have the pleasure to sit in your company once again; it has been too long, Changes took place, and adjustments followed that needed some time to be worked out. But, I am back to share my knowledge and passion for health, wealth and happiness with you.
Don’t worry if you disagree with me, I encourage you to take everything you hear, or read and put a question mark to it first. I am not talking about cynicisms or disagreement from a stubbornly closed mind here, but a healthy sense of skepticism.

Breath of Life (part three) - Nov 17, 2006 - 3:50:02 PM

I wonder if anybody who read my last two articles about the right way of breathing took my advice to heart and practiced what I had suggested. If you did, even for just a week, I know that your health has improved. Congratulations to you! Everything in your life will improve with the right way of breathing; continue with ever increasing joy and vigor.

Breath of Life (part two) - Nov 3, 2006 - 10:29:31 AM
You may have looked for this article last week, yet did not find it; well, I took a “breather”. I guess I exhaled too long and missed the deadline….my apologies; but now let’s continue on our journey into the “health-breath connection”.

Breath of Life (part one) - Oct 27, 2006 - 10:34:04 AM
Has anybody ever asked you: “How is your breath?” No, of course not. You may think that this is a ridiculous question; but is it? Surely we are not accustomed to hearing, or asking such a question, but let us explore why it may be very appropriate.

Short and Intense - Oct 17, 2006 - 7:57:18 PM

I am talking about exercising here! Does the following conversation sound familiar? It goes like this:

I know I should work out…I have to loose this weight…I start next week…
And on and on it goes; good intentions, but nothing happens. Then there comes a certain feeling of guilt, because your internal voice keeps reminding you of your promise to yourself.

Enzymes, the Essence of Life - Oct 13, 2006 - 7:54:35 PM
Enzymes.JPG
Some of you may not know that as we get older, the strength our digestive system declines. The digestive juices in our stomach, necessary to break down food, weaken. Most often we are encouraged to take digestive enzyme supplements with our meals to remedy this. We only really need to do this when we eat cooked food. All cooking (heat over 250 F) for any length of time, or exposing food in its fresh or original state to heat makes it devoid of enzymes, and therefore practically dead.

Did you know that coconut oil is a miracle food? - Oct 2, 2006 - 8:00:17 PM

coconutoil.JPG
No? I did not know either.
When I read the recommendations of fats to avoid as listed on pamphlets in doctor’s offices, or organizations like Bahamas Heart Association, coconut oil is at the bottom of fats listed. The list goes from “best” to “worst”. Olive oil on top, coconut oil on the bottom. Hmmm…
