Do you like Cinnamon?
Do you suffer from cramps month after month during that Time Of The Month!?
Do you find that your periods are a little heavy?
Do you notice pimples that seem to appear out of nowhere right before your period?
Well what would you think if I told you Cinnamon could be the answer to your problem.
This month I encourage you to try my Cinnamon Challenge.
Seven days before your next TOTM! (period) begin drinking 2 cups of cinnamon tea a day one in the morning and one at night. Then when your period begins you will find that your cramps will be less painful if not gone all together. You can continue to drink the cinnamon tea during your TOTM! as needed.
So if you:
suffer from cramps
have heavy periods
suffer from period related acne
Then I encourage you to try my Cinnamon Challenge! It's a natural solution to symptoms you may experience on a monthly basis.
How does Cinnamon fight PMS symptoms?
Cinnamon is a good source of Manganese, Fiber and Calcium.
Studies show higher levels of Manganese taken by women have reduced cramps associated with menstruation as well as fewer mood swings.
Calcium is also known to help reduce menstrual cramps.
Cinnamon has antimicrobial and antioxidant properties that help combat acne. Cinnamon has anticlotting properties that stimulate blood circulation and flow away from the uterus reducing excessive menstrual bleeding.
How to prepare the tea:
pour over 2-4 cinnamon sticks
allow cinnamon sticks to steep for 5-10 minutes
sweeten with sugar in the raw, agave, honey, or drink unsweetened
Drink from your favorite mug. Here's mine:
want one like it? order yours TODAY!
So take the challenge with me. Let us know why you took the challenge and how it worked for you. I'm taking the challenge because I get cramps and TOTM! pimples. What about you?
I look forward to hearing from you all!
"May every TOTM! be a So Happy one!"

How many times have you gone to the store to purchase a bra and wasn't sure about which size to buy? How exactly do you figure out your bra size? For many of us, we make a beeline straight to the woman in the lingerie section with the measuring tape. Surely I'm not the only one.
Well you can easily figure out which bra size you wear BEFORE you step foot into the department store. All you need at home is a measuring tape.
1 - First you measure across your bust. This will determine
your band size. If the number you measured is even, 30, 32,
34, etc then you will ADD 4 inches. If it's an odd number
31, 33, 35 etc, then you will ADD 5 inches.
2 - Second you measure around your body
JUST under your bust but well ABOVE
your waist. This will determine your cup size.
If the number is a fraction, round up to the
nearest whole number.
3 - Now you're ready to figure out your bra size! Subtract
your band size which you figured out in Step 1 from your
cup size which you figured out in Step 2. And that's your
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3!
A few pointers:
* Do Not wear a padded bra when measuring. * Do Not measure yourself the week of your TOTM! if you're like a lot of women whom experience fullness in the breast during that Time Of The Month! * and DO remember...
Did you know girls as young as 7 years old are beginning their periods? Can you imagine? These little girls are barely out of training panties and have to deal with the monthly responsibilities of TOTM!

Gardening can be very rewarding during your TOTM! There's something about digging in the earth that brings about relaxation. During our Time Of The Month! meditation and exercise are beneficial and gardening provides both. Organic gardens create healthy lifestyles to have happier TOTM!s Hope you enjoy the video I created for you. But until then... "May every TOTM! be a So Happy one!"TM
Juicing can be very beneficial to your health. But often times you feel reluctant to juice because it can be time consuming. If you follow the 3 P's to juicing you may find it easier than you thought.
1. PLAN Think ahead. How many days will you be juicing. What is the result you are looking for from juicing. Will you be juicing fruits? vegetables? or a combination of the two? Once you have figured that out then you can.... 2. PREP Prepping your fruits and vegetables for juicing cuts down on time. Set aside a day for cutting up your fruits and veggies and place them into airtight containers until you are ready to use them. 3. PREPARE Now you are ready to juice! Go the fridge and take out the ingredients that you have already cut up and make a delicious drink!
Take a look at a recent video I did in the kitchen.....

So what exactly are stem cells? Stem cells have the potential to develop into many different types of cells in the human body. There are two types of stem cells, embryonic and adult stem cells. Stem cells serve as a repair system for the body.
For years doctors looked at stem cells found in the umbilical cord as the answer to several diseases including Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and spinal cord injuries. Umbilical cord stem cells are known to replicate themselves to a maximum of 12 times. Stem cells found in menstrual blood replicate every 24-36 hours to up to 47 times.
Menstrual blood stem cells also retain embryonic stem cell markers so the potential for these cells to form into many different healthy cells is remarkable. What does this all mean? It means that millions of women have the ability to aid research in science towards the studies of birth defects and cancer. I find this to be AWESOME and a blessing. Not enough women are aware of the regenerative properties a woman's body holds.
Sunday March 18, 2012 on TOTM! Tea Talk I will be discussing the miracle of menstrual blood stem cells with Founder of Medicine Women Productions Kim LaRue.

My TOTM! Team had been workin' very hard for one of our biggest projects of the year... my daughter Shelby's Super Sweet 16 Party that was held on 11/11/11. A young girl's Sweet 16 is an important life milestone and life event that should be celebrated with family, relatives and friends.
It's a project that needs time for planning, budgeting and implementation.
Even though it took MONTHS of work...
I am very happy of the outcome and to have been able to see the joy in my daughter's eyes and on her face during her special 11/11/11 event. Please join me in congratulating my daughter Shelby by leaving YOUR comments below.
Before I leave...I'd like to PUBLICLY thank

You see the warnings on the side of tampon boxes. It's on the insert in the boxes. What am I referring to? Toxic Shock Syndrome. So what exactly is Toxic Shock Syndrome? And how does one contract it? Toxic Shock Syndrome sometimes referred to as TSS is a disease that's life threatening and has taken the lives of many women. You can develop TSS when infected by a common bacteria that affects a part of the body and then releases toxins into the bloodstream. The toxins attack the immune system and if not diagnosed early and treated, can be deadly. Most commonly associated with women who used highly absorbent tampons.
Symptoms of TSS include:
Fever greater than 102 degrees
Red sunburn like rash
Nausea and vomiting
Dizzyness, fainting, lightheadedness
This Wednesday January 25, 2012 Val Carey will have Suzan Hutchinson of You ARE Loved organization live on TOTM! Tea Talk discussing the perils of Toxic Shock Syndrome. Suzan is a TSS survivor and female activist advocating the awareness of Toxic Shock Syndrome.
