This book is a detailed account of the research on gut health and the benefits of healthy eating. The book describes 21 smoothies along with a new superfood Flavonoid additive that will help people with health benefits. Holistic living in total.

About the Author

At 14 years old, to be a health advocate, researcher, entrepreneur, innovator and a publicist is a huge feat and Diya encompasses all of these with flair. She is not just a born natural but also very thoughtful, inquisitive and enterprising. Diya’s mission is to change this world from inside out and motivate self help and self healing using unique healthy recipes, introducing her own brand of super food of flavonoids (Oxi-Blast) and also by introducing meditation and breathing techniques to live a better life.

Her discord server SPEAK (Support, Positivity, Equality, Acceptance/Assistance and Kindness) that she started with only 2 people a few weeks back now has over 30+ subscribers who wants to talk to her about their problems and frustrations, and Diya being a good listener, listens to their problems and asks them to practice breathing and meditation with her or provide some encouraging words that the friend was desperate to hear.

She is also the youngest proponent of smoothies and has developed 64 unique combinations of fresh fruits and vegetables, Oxi-Blast, superfoods, condiments and a liquid base. She shares 21 of those in this book and she also provides a grocery list of ingredients in her website to make efficient shopping possible. Her book is also full of treasured facts for each of the ingredients with their nutritional values to you to make a conscious decision about the food that you are eating.

Her passion to learn from her life lessons and motivate the youth to be a better version of themselves, take care of their stress, depression and anxiety by simply learning to express their feelings and also eat healthy to keep chronic illness away. She comes from a family history of diabetes, blood pressure, chronic allergies and heart problems, so she is trying her best to stay healthy and also reach the younger generation to maintain a balance in their lives from very early in life to ward of predisposed conditions.

Her research on microbiome (E.coli) and how it is affected by different chronic medications that we take on a daily basis like metformin, losartan, ibuprofen , tylenol and even vape , shows the deleterious side effects it can have on gut bacteria. Hence, with the help of her research, while working at an ASU lab, she is trying to quantify the amount of flavonoids in Oxi-Blast to give a healthier option to oneself and start on a journey of self healing.

National Health Care Decisions Day

Today is National Health Care Decisions Day, and according to the National Day Calendar, April 16th is the day that has been set aside to educate and empower the public to make advance planning for their healthcare. It deals primarily with the importance of having an advance directive or a living will.

 

While you may consider this something that only senior citizens should think about, one never knows what may happen in the future, so it’s never too soon to make that decision.  And while you are thinking about that, what about your present state of health? What decision can you make about your health for today?

 

Can you decide today that you are going to consume less sugar, increase your physical activity and do something that makes you feel better about yourself?

Which brings me to the second focus of this post: Orchids

What do orchids have to do with making health care decisions, you ask? Well, today is also National Orchid Day, and I think it is no accident that the two days fall on the same date, because like most plants, orchids do have some healing properties.

 

According to Orchid Care Zone, the Chinese were the first to discover the healing properties of these beautiful plants and today use it as a medicinal tea.  The flower, bulbs, stems and even the root are used for medicinal purposes. The article states that orchids are used to treat  illnesses such as asthma,   arthritis, diarrhea, fever, pimples and even cancer, to name a few.  And guess what? I just learned that vanilla extract comes from the orchid Vanilla planifolia! So now I have another reason to love orchids.

Now, I’m not a doctor, and I have never used orchids as medicine, but I love them for their beauty, their sturdiness – I haven’t repotted my orchids in a year and they keep on blooming – and the relaxing ambience they impart to my home.

 

So, even if you are wary of using orchids as medicine, why not purchase one and care for it as you would a pet?

Here are some of the benefits you will receive:

  • Improved air quality
  • Relaxed atmosphere
  • Reduced dust and airborne pollutants
  • Lower room temperature
  • A feeling of pride as you watch your orchids bloom

Do I need to say more?  Whatever healthcare decision you make today, let it include getting an orchid. You won’t regret it. Also, if you are still putting off getting a health coach, include that in your decision-making as well.

Wednesday Wisdom – Do Something Different

Hi everyone, it’s the second  Wednesday of the year. How is it going so far? What are you doing today to help you move toward your goals for 2018? I’m not just talking about health goals. I’m talking about any type of goal – relationships, work, health, spiritual, whatever.

When you wake up each morning, what goal do you have in mind for that day? Notice I said goal, not plan. You may plan to go to work today, and after work you may go to the gym. Yay! But those are plans, not goals. Your goal would be something you hope to accomplish. For example, I will walk 1 mile in 30 mins, 3 times a week.

If you get up this morning and decide to go for a walk without having a Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound (SMART) goal in mind, then you are not doing something different, and chances are, you will not stay on target.

So today, I challenge you – do something different. You don’t exercise? Go for a short walk. Eat something different. You are not used to eating fish? Try it. Don’t like drinking water? Drink one glass. After work you collapse in front of the TV? Try reading a book instead, or listen to some music. Do Something Different.

Will you?

This morning I read an article online about this woman who was talked into buying a 2-day health coaching program for a couple thousand dollars. Ridiculous, right? But this person says it happened to her. If you decide to do something different and sign up for my health coaching program, you won’t pay anything close to that, not even for 12 sessions, which is what I recommend you sign up for. And the consultation is free.

So, what are you waiting for? Do Something Different Today to bring your weight, diabetes, high blood pressure, pain and stress under control. When you fill in the form below, I will let you know how you can arrange for a free consultation with me.  Until next time, get up off that couch!

National Call Your Doctor Day

In checking through my email last night, I saw this message from The National Day Calendar that today is “National Call Your Doctor” Day. Now I haven’t called my doctor in a while so I thought I’d read the post to see why I should call the man in the white coat. According to the site, today, the second Tuesday in June is a day set aside by Bright Pink, a woman’s health non-profit, for young women to call their doctor and schedule their annual Well-Woman Exam.

As women, we make all kinds of appointments: hair dresser, manicure and pedicure, massage etc. Even pet grooming gets priority. Why not take a few minutes to schedule an appointment for something that can save you months, maybe years, of illness later on?

Other reasons why you should schedule a Well-Woman visit?

1. Like I said above, it can save you years of illness later on. It may even save your life. Years ago during my annual exam, my OB/GYN discovered I had abnormal cells. Had I waited a little longer, they would have become cancerous.
2. Establishing rapport with your doctor. Health care, thankfully, is becoming all-embracing. You don’t just go to your doctor when you have a cold or some ache or pain. During your well-woman visit, You should ask questions and voice your concerns so your doctor will know what else he should screen you for. Weight gain or loss, stress, fatigue, all of these can be discussed with your doctor.
3. It’s free. Under the Affordable Care Act, a well-woman visit comes under preventative care and therefore carries no out-of-pocket costs. So when you call to schedule, today, be sure to say you’re coming for a well-woman exam.

Now remember, when you schedule that exam, you are not just doing it for yourself, but also for those you love. So pick up your phone and call today. And when you finish calling, call your BFF or family member and make sure they do the same.

Welcome

Welcome to Angie’s Health Coaching. I am so glad you found my site. You didn’t get here by accident. You have been examining your life and realize you need help making some lifestyle changes. Maybe your physical health is not what you would like to be. Or it may be your emotional or mental health or all three. Whatever your quest may be, I am here to help you. I am a health coach with eighteen years experience  as an occupational therapist. You can read more about me on my About Me page.

But first, let me explain to  you what a health coach is. When people hear the word coaching, they think of counseling, but health coaching is not counseling. There’s a difference between the two. Counseling advises you on how to deal with an issue in your life, what decisions to make and how to make them. Health coaching involves listening to the client and helping them make lifestyle changes that include physical activity, sensible eating habits and stress reduction.

Coaching goes beneath the surface to assess the needs, desires and goals of the individual. For example, when a client says, “I want to lose 20 pounds,” a counselor may say let’s do this or that, but a  good health coach will try to find out what is the motivation behind the goal. Is it just to look better, or is it because heart disease runs in his family and he is afraid that he might develop the disease? This allows the coach to delve further into the lifestyle habits of the client so as to better assist him to achieve his goals.

So, are you ready to embark on a journey that will change your life forever? If so, use the contact form to arrange for a free consultation. I look forward to hearing from you.
