The “Secret” Is To Just Keep BREATHING!

by Dr. Monica Bickerstaff, DHM

 

In a world where everything has been so chaotic of late, it's important to take a time out...
EXHALE and give thanks for the resiliency of YOUr spirit!

During times of stress, we can restore our spirits and rejuvenate our faith, and energies with the healing practice of aromatherapy, and by BREATHING!

As a doctor of holistic medicine with expertise as a certified clinical aromatherapist; I recommend all things “essential” (essential oils that is) to calm your nerves, ease your tension and re-balance your body temple.

Aromatherapy is both an art and a science. It is rooted in the healing practices of ancient
civilizations. Essential oils were used more than 5,000 years ago in Egypt, India and the Middle East. Inspired by the traditional medicines of these cultures, the healing science of aromatherapy employs fragrant plant/flower extracts for treatments. Essential oils work their physical, emotional and psychological wonders by interacting with the olfactory nerves, or entering through the skin; thus, affecting the limbic system in the brain. In these ways, they reach the bloodstream directly. Once they are absorbed, the oils enter the lymphatic and blood capillary systems, benefiting circulation as well as the sinuses and lungs.

So, when you feel that you've lost hope, when you're overwhelmed with anxiety or extreme emotion and when you can't remember what's on your "to do" list, or even where you left it last, be sure to remember...BREATHE!

In my practice, I practice Ujjayi Breath (breath of victory), using my custom blend Peace Of Mind; with clients. The ritual of Ujjayi Breathing will settle your nerves and focus your mind. This breath is restorative to both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nerves.

Ahhhh, rub your palms together and as you inhale the scent-suality of sandalwood, tangerine and vanilla; Peace Of Mind-- you should focus on the breath. Ujjayi breathing releases your Chakra meridians (energy centers) and when done properly, Ujjayi breathing should be both energizing and relaxing. The sound of Ujjayi is created by gently constricting the opening of the throat to create some resistance to the passage of air. Gently pulling the breath in on inhalation and gently pushing the breath out on exhalation against this resistance creates a well-modulated and soothing sound—something like the sound of ocean waves rolling in and out.

Don't be alarmed if you sound a little like Darth Vader when breathing Ujjayi. This means you are doing it right!

Aromatherapy can help you restore your inner peace, by combining Mindful Breathing with faith. When life totally spins out of control, you can remember to stop, INHALE and EXHALE...
literally smell the roses...your senses will thank you!

SWEET TREATS FOR CELIACS! by Dr. Monica Bickerstaff, DHM

v5dx59esjmmqltsvwuv4akaaue22kbyu.jpg

 

Celiac’s crave sweet treats too! But, for more and more people with gluten sensitivities, flour and wheat based desserts are totally off limits. There are so many people with allergies; so it's really good to have lots of alternative ways of satisfying your sweet tooth! You still want to make absolutely delicious food without the sacrifices of flare-ups!

Gluten free deserts have gone mainstream and they are sinfully enticing and healthy too. But, you have to be willing to experiment. You can't necessarily take your favorite recipe and just substitute a gluten-free flour mix.

I LOVE to experiment with gluten free sweet treats AND natural remedies with essential oils and herbs in my kitchen. Here are two of my fave recipes! Let me know what you think. J

 

Gluten Free Goodness: Chocolate Mousse

  • 5 ounces bittersweet baking chocolate broken in pieces
  • 4 ounces heavy cream
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • pinch of sea salt
  • zest of one orange or a dash of Grand Marnier

Place chocolate in a bowl. Gently heat the heavy cream until just about to simmer, and pour over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Stir in the egg yolks, one at a time. Beat the egg whites separately with salt until stiff peaks form. Fold half of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it and then add the remaining egg whites, folding gently so the eggs do not deflate. Flavor with the orange zest or Grand Marnier. Pour into individual serving dishes. Chill for four to six hours. Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream before serving.

 

Gluten Free Coffee Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 c. coconut oil
  • 1/4 c. honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 c. coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 c. almond flour
  • 1 tsp. Cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/2 – 3/4 c. almond flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. Cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 & Bake for 20-25 minutes
  2. Stir coconut oil, egg, vanilla and honey together in a bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, combine almond flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and sea salt
  4. Add dry ingredients to wet along with milk, and stir until smooth.
  5. Pour into an 8×8 baking pan.
  6. In a small bowl mix the almond flour, coconut oil, honey, and cinnamon for topping. Spread topping over cake.

 

3 Facts About Gluten:

It's been 5 years since I was first diagnosed with Celiac Disease. And although my path to wellness has not always been smooth; I am grateful for my restored health and vitality

  • Gluten is found in several grains, such as wheat, barley and rye.
  • According to the Mayo Clinic, both celiac disease and gluten intolerance are more common today than they were in the 1950's. Experts estimate that 30 to 40 percent of Americans are gluten intolerant.
  • Gluten can cause inflammation; a leading cause of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. If you're sensitive, tiny fissures in the small intestine may form preventing nutrients from being absorbed, and possibly leading to mental health and behavioral problems.

BEAT STRESS- TIPS FOR STRESS RELEASE

Studies show that during the Summer months; our lives are often more stressful; causing us to "hold" more stress in our bodies. When we carry stress, our organs and body functions automatically shift into "flight or fight" mode. This means that our cortisol hormone levels can get dangerously high; causing a whole bunch of problems for us!

On any given day I Juggle MANY  colorful scarves! Holistic Medicine Practice, Master Blender of my Juicy 5-star Natural Remedies, CEO of my Media Relations Company, Interacting with my clients/wellness warriors, Award Winning Documentary Producer, College Professor, Academic Tutor, Aromatherapy Chemist, Honoring MY Divine Feminine Energy ....sure my plates are full (but no fuller than yours , AND I've learned over the years how to re-direct my stress and be grateful, sassy & funny through the GRIND! )

6 TIPS TO BEAT STRESS BEFORE STRESS BEATS YOU!

1. Be GRATEFUL for EVERY-THING! Gratitude allows us to enter a thoughtful mindset that is greater than ourselves. Stay aligned with God.

2. RELEASE- SURRENDER-REJOICE! Get your prayer & meditation on!

3. Remove yourself from toxic situations and relationships!!! Seriously, just say NO to the "energy vampires"!!!! Experience the POWER IN "NO"  Set YOUR Boundaries and revel in them!

4. BREATHE: I practice Ujayii Breath when I awaken each morning to ground myself.
Inhale from your lower diaphragm and completely fill your lungs; Release the breath, through a closed mouth, and allow the energy to warm your body

5. Stay HYDRATED: when you start to feel stressed, place your left hand over your heart, breathe deeply and sip COLD water; slowly.

6. EXERCISE....Get your body movin' DO what FEELS GOOD to YOU! Dance IT Out!!!

Get in touch with me for more stress release therapies! NOW, is the time to schedule your  "Turn Up with A Wellness Tune-Up" appointment with me.
