How to Stay Healthy in Unhealthy Environments
I recently got an email from a reader and they wanted to confide in me about a problem that is not uncommon- how to stay motivated and carry on your health journey if everyone around you does the opposite?

Not to mention any basic self-care. Now, it takes her more than an hour to drive to get some healthy stuff. In the local stores in her area, people actually conform to unhealthy foods because, again, most people don’t care what they eat. To make things worse- she feels laughed at whenever she shows any interest for a healthy lifestyle…In the end, she put on weight, got a bit depressed and asked me for support to get back on track. She asked me for tips and resources on living a healthy life in an unhealthy town…how to break free from bad environments….In her own words: “I can’t even find yoga-it’s that bad.

The Alkaline Diet for the Mind
In this short blog post, I would like to bring up the mental and emotional benefits of utilizing the Alkaline Diet – something that is quite often overlooked.
Generally, people who try this diet analyse it and focus only on the physical benefits like massive weight loss, lessened inflammation, improved digestion, healthier skin, degenerative disease prevention, osteoporosis and arthritis prevention, etc. However, very little is being said about the other powerful changes that this diet can bring into your life on a more holistic level.
