We were recently introduced to a new health and wellness product on the market. It is called Limu and is made up of Brown Seaweed and the latest and greatest compound known as Fucoidan. This is actually a marine bio-active compound that is found in the sea plant known as limu moui. Studies have shown that fucoidan has many health benefits and contains more than 70 nutrients including vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, glyco-nutrients and plyphenols. Fucoidan also has both anti-viral and anti-inflammatory benefits. This product comes in 3 different forms to include a heath drink, a protein shake, or an energy drink. Zebrina and I recently started taking it to see what it would do for our own personal health and wellness needs and to address specific concerns. After trying it for 3 weeks we both had positive results and liked the changes we were seeing in our bodies. We only really experimented with the Energy Drink Blue Frog 2 and the health drink, Limu Original. We are going to host an informational class for all of you so you can taste it and try out the product. We especially like its anti-inflammatory properties and believe many of our clients will too! Please call us anytime or send us an email if you want to know more about Limu or want to try a sample.

Please Join us for a Limu Tasting Party and to learn more about this incredible supplement on Thursday, October 22nd at 5:30 pm. Please call or email to RSVP


Cambio Yoga

Today the owners (Rian & Zebrina) of Natural Therapeutics finally committed to taking a yoga class for our own health and wellness needs. It was the first class in a while, so naturally we were a little apprehensive. We chose to go to Cambio Yoga, a donation based local yoga studio right down the road. We have been here before and really like the concept, space, classes, and teachers. We picked the Vinayasa Flow at 9 am. I arrived at 8:55 and Zebrina shortly after. Austin greeted me upon arrival and was super friendly and helpful! I didn’t have a mat so I borrowed one for $1 donation. When I opened the classroom door, I was immediately overwhelmed by the amount of people and and the heat! I was not expecting it to be so crowded on a Wednesday morning at 9 am! I worked my way through the crowd of people sitting neatly on their mats to the opposite side of the room. A nice lady helped to make room for me so I could squeeze my mat on in. I took a deep breath and centered myself to get my mind ready for something that I was not expecting! Austin the instructor instantly made me feel at ease. He asked us to set our intention to open up our Heart Chakra and to be mindful of practicing Grace. This class was incredible! It was the right amount of heat, sweat, flow, breathing, stretching, twisting, holding, and letting go! If you are interesting in trying yoga or getting back into it, I highly recommend checking out Cambio Yoga, We will definitely be back for more! #BeNaturalBeWell

deep breathingMany books and teachers talk about it.  In fact, the very first thing any of us did after we were born was just this. It is rather simple; this one action that operates unconsciously, and yet is within our control.  It is breathing, and is the key to life.  Though it is so crucial, it is also so easily forgotten, and the reminder to take notice of the air going in and out of the lungs seams worthy of an entry on the blog.

Usually our attention is focused on our head, or perhaps more specifically, the area around our head.  Each of us is a figurative radio tower, and our thoughts are the many stations that we tune into almost constantly.  Take a moment now and instead tune the receiver to notice something below the “Thought Broadcast Center” in the center of your chest and down into your naval.  That slow rise and fall that indicates life, rhythm, flow is going on without your help.  And you are free to take over if you want, however; perhaps the more intriguing thing to try is to simply watch.

As you watch a few in and outs of air from your lungs, you may notice other parts of your surrounding body structure.   Maybe you tune into the weight of your body, or the sense of aliveness in your hands.  The breath is our key to the here and now, as placing our attention on our breathing centers us within our bodies, grounds us, and let’s us stay in touch with our body, the all-important organism that sustains us.

The next time you get a massage, the next time you drive your car, sometime within the next five minutes, please, take a conscious breath.  Let it fill you up. Relish the life flowing into you, and rejoice, here you are, connected to everything in such a subtle, beautiful way!
