One of Leeza’s Salad Recipes

By | Recipes | No Comments

1 bunch of curly Parsley=chopped
1/2 bunch of Kale =chopped no stems
1/2 bunch of swiss chard= chopped no stems
4 cups of baby spinach
2 lemons fresh squeezed juice (no seeds)
1 large tomato chopped
1 cup of Chia Seeds sprinkled on top (yes just like the cha cha chia plant)
1 cup preferred raw nuts or seeds
1/4 cup pureed garlic and ginger ( in food processor ginger and garlic equal amounts, add a little raw apple cider vinegar ..great for many dishes)
drizzle olive oil on top approx. 1/4 cup
drizzle “Braggs liquid aminos” on top approx. 1/4 cup
sprinkle 1 tsp of Himalayan sea salt
Toss and serve
Special note from Leeza: one of many tricks to a great tasting salad is tossing it for a good 4-5 minutes especially when using kale

Health tips: Drink plenty of water, (alkaline is best) but not while your eating meals, you need your natural digestive enzymes to digest.
Don’t eat late at night
Green inside, clean inside..keep the body flowing
Start your day with a large glass of water and half a lemon squeezed, this also helps digestion.
Remember you are what you eat, think and breathe.

Dry Itchy Winter Skin

By | Ethstetics | No Comments

The warm air has given away to the cold,  as we say good bye to fall and welcome winter.  No more worrying about our skin, right? Wrong! This couldn’t be any further from the truth.

The cold windy weather and lower humidity of the winter season can pose a greater threat to our skin than in summer. Dry itchy winter skin affects many people regardless of age or gender, not only its uncomfortable, but dried out skin can lead to cracking and bleeding making it more vulnerable to infections and  even eczema which causes inflammation on the skin,  and with the Santa Anas wind blowing only makes matters worse. You may have already begun to experience these effects as your lips seem more chapped than normal and your hands feel extra dry.

Cold winter temperatures also mean you’ll probably be turning up heat up in your  cars ,home and in the workplace. No matter the type of heat you have at home or at work, it will dry out your skin quickly.  Using  a humidifier helps, but you need to do more to counteract winter skin effects. Reduce redness, itching, and dried skin, try these tips help your skin stay comfortable and looking healthier this season.

  • Skip Hot Water-Wash in Lukewarm Water

Hot showers and baths always feel soothing in the winter, we must avoid them. The high water temperature will cause water evaporation off the skin, leaving your skin drier, instead opt for 10-15min long warm showers.  Particularly when just washing your face or hands, choose lukewarm water to avoid  stripping precious oils  away from the skin that give us protection. Try a soap-free, facial cleanser like  DOCTOR D. SCHWAB Herbal Foam Cleanser   and a moisturizing body wash like  SEA ENZYME Seaweed Citrus Hand & Body  Wash  seaweed  extract nourishes and moisturizes the skin.

  • Moisturize Immediately

Applying  moisturizer to damp skin helps seal that moisture  into the skin before it evaporates.  Keep a good body moisturizer near the bathtub, shower room, and at every sink and use liberally every time you wash or as needed.

  • Choosing a Moisturizer

Choosing the right moisturizer can make a difference, some over-the-counter moisturizers have petroleum-based ingredients that can further dry your skin in the winter months. Be sure to choose a formula that has natural, nourishing  ingredients that can protect your skin as well repair it.  Go for an oil-based rather than a water-based solution, as it’s more likely to help your skin retain moisture in the winter (most label-night creams are oil-base). Try AMBROSIA Rosehip Vitamin Moisturizer   ultra-hydrating, revitalizing moisturizer, helps protect skin from environmental aggressors. Or DOCTOR D. SCHWAB  AM/PM Moisturizer  for very dry conditions. For body try  SEA ENZYME Seaweed Body Lotion  it contains  sweet almond oil that protects and softens skin.

  • Protect

Wearing gloves and  scarves help to protect skin from cold  winds. But don’t forget the sunscreen. Although it’s cold outside, that doesn’t mean sunscreen doesn’t apply. Winter sun can be just as damaging as summer sun. Try SEA ENZYME Ultra–Umbrella Sunscreen Broad Spectrum  SPF 30   provides moisture and soothes skin with no greasy feel. Use on face & hands, apply often when enjoying time outdoors.

  • Moisturizing Overnight

Hands, elbows, knees & feet have less oil glands underneath the thin skin and tend to lose moisture faster than other areas on the body. I recommend using a deep moisturizing  mask at night, then wear cotton gloves and socks to seal in the moisture until morning. I like to use DOCTOR D. SCHWAB ARNICA MASK  or DIY a mask.

  • Exfoliate

We  often forget to help the skin slough off dead cells in the winter.  Yet moisture can’t get in if the dead cells layers are to thick. Find a gentle exfoliating mask, like Doctor D. CHAWB  D.CHAWB Bamboo Peel  the exfoliating ingredients are gentle enough even for sensitive skin and don’t create micro-tears on the skin. Use it on your face and  your hands, can be gently applied on lips as well, then  follow immediately with moisturizer to truly see a smoother difference. For lips I recommend DOCTOR D. CHAWB Lip Rescue therapy The ultimate rescue from chapped and dehydrated lip conditions!

  • Humidify

Heating systems dry out the air, consider installing a humidifier in your home, particularly in rooms you spent more time,  to put moisture back into the air and prevent your skin from drying out.

  • Hydrate & Feed inside out

We tend to drink less water in the winter, instead we turn to hot drinks like hot cocoa and coffee. forgetting that our skin needs hydration from the inside, out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and healthy. Now water is not the only way to stay hydrate, vegetables are also great source of hydration i.e. cauliflower, eggplant, red cabbage, peppers and spinach contain high volumes of moisture .

  • Avoiding Toxins & Sensitive Skin

Use Organic moisturizers rather than run-of-the-mill lotions. These will help prevent extra toxins entering our system. You probably already know this, your skin is the largest organ on the body, we got to be aware what we feed it. If  you  suffer from rosacea, eczema,  dermatitis, or psoriasis, avoid allergens and irritants that may trigger a flare up. Winter skin is more fragile, avoid irritating fabrics(i.e. wool) and harsh chemical-laden detergents. Use mild cleansers and moisturizers designed for sensitive skin. If feeling overloaded on toxins, especially after the holidays you might consider a detox.

 

  • Consult a Specialist

Visiting an esthetician or dermatologist is a good investment. An specialist can analyze your skin and recommend product suitable for your skin troubles. It’ll be hard to find salesperson who can give you that type of advice. In the long term it saves you time & money, avoid buying all those needless product.

Heart and Yoga

By | Yoga | No Comments

Modern science is showing that the human heart creates the single most powerful electrical field in the human body, about 60-100 times more powerful than the human brain. Science says that the human heart is 5,000 times stronger than the human brain. I find this very helpful in my journey. I have worked with a Shaman for nearly 8 years and she teaches the same golden rule, “To think from your heart not from the head” one of the most profound things she said to me was, “The longest distance you will travel in your lifetime is from your head to your heart”. My jaw dropped, I immediately felt that in my heart. I realized I was in the company of yet another radiant teacher in my life. For example, if you think about the heart for a moment and the different things we experience in life with our hearts, when you experience heartbreak, the chest becomes heavy and of course this is where the heart resides. When you think about stress or when you encounter a stressful situation, the brain releases adrenaline into your system to help you either fight or flee the threat. This causes your heart to beat faster and your blood pressure to increase. This you also feel in the chest. It’s no wonder Living in a constant state of stress weakens your cardiovascular system.
So what are we to do? I know, YOGA.

Try this:
Sit in a comfortable cross-legged seated position where your posture is extended, meaning you are sitting straight up. If you have to use a chair, do so with legs uncrossed and feet on the floor. Root down through the base of the spine imagining a connection to mother earth, then scan through the spinal column up through the crown chakra into infinity and beyond. Now imagine you are the conduit and part of this oneness (because you are). Begin breathing through the nasal passage fluidly and at a comfortable pace. Inhale count of 4 and exhale count of 4, soften your thoughts, open your heart and you have just begun your very own science experiment.

In Love and Light Leeza

Yoga Means……….

By | Workshops, Yoga | No Comments

When you begin your yoga journey one of the first things you will learn is what yoga means. You may hear the following: to unite, to bring together, union, to be yoked, balanced and there is more. But when you are fortunate enough to meet a linguistic master, the term “deepen your practice” takes on a whole new meaning, especially when he is also a Yogi.

I love Yoga. I also love how it reminds me every day that there is so much to learn and that I always feel as though I just scratched the surface. I have had the pleasure of studying with many amazing teacher’s of Yoga. Recently I have been studying with Jeffrey Armstrong and truly he is one of the most knowledgeable people about yoga, the Bhagavad gita, the Mahabharata and on top of this he is a linguistic master. This means he can teach you the root of languages and where they come from. For example our English word rhythm comes from the Sanskrit word Ritam.

Jeffrey say’s “Yoga means to reestablish the link between our eternal self and the source of our being” and he goes on to say “according to the Yogi’s, we have forgotten about this, which is knowledge that reminds us who we really are and give us the tools to reestablish that linkage to yoga and that this is the essence of Yoga.

Now as a student of yoga, as well as a teacher of Yoga I can easily say that when you practice every day balancing and uniting your mind, body and spirit you are ultimately lead down the path of living consciously at everything you do in the best humanly way possible. You can easily try this your self, I will be happy to help you.

Follow these simple suggestions:

  1. Acknowledge each day at the beginning and the end, remember you don’t get do over’s
  2. Each day think of 10 people and things you are thankful for.
  3. Acknowledge the planet as another radiant being

That should give you a great start
Be radiant and remember to inhale and exhale

In light and Love Leeza
