It’s time to take the first steps towards healthy living

Changing our health isn’t easy.

There is no quick fix, or an easy pill to take once a day that will help our bodies heal so that we can thrive.

It takes hard work, determination, and lots of help and support from others.


My story is like many of yours I’m sure… ate the Standard American Diet or followed the Food Pyramid growing up, found out it was super hard to get pregnant when I didn’t ovulate (who’d a thunk?!), and decided to do anything I could to change the way my body functioned.

I wasn’t sure it would work at first.

Six months later, when my cycle was normal for the first time ever, I considered my changes a success! In fact, my story is the reason I started this site seven years ago and I’ve been given a first row seat in seeing hundreds, if not thousands, of women change their health for the better in that time.

I know what it’s like to feel that healthy living is difficult, and it costs so much! I mean, don’t you ever wish someone would just tell you exactly what you need to know and how to make these changes for less?

steps towards healthy living

When you have the right info and tools at your fingertips, it all comes together so much more easily. You know what to cook for your family. You’re more confident in choosing natural alternatives. You can easily replace store-bought products with DIY options that really work. You feel better (and even look better, too). Healthy living becomes less stressful and more enjoyable.

That’s why Stephanie and her team have put together the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle for the fourth year in a row. Each year, they’re amazed at how many families are saying “yes!” to their health and taking them up on this super short opportunity to get a complete collection of natural-living resources for a crazy low price.

All together, it’s worth over $1900 if you were to buy all of these books separately!

If you’re ready to make that next step in getting healthier, and want to purchase the Healthy Living Bundle, I thought I’d help give you the extra push to actually USE the information (because I know I’ve purchased some things and never used them….) So after going through the entire bundle package of ebooks, ecourses, and bonus offers, here are some of my recommendations on where to start based on what your issue/goal is. (Each section may have some overlap.)

It's time to take the first step towards healthy living

If you have PCOS:

Start with the ebook Debunking PCOS by Nat Kringoudis and get the information you need to get your hormones back on track to tame those wild ovaries of yours and overcome PCOS and endometriosis.

Check out the Four-Week Paleo Kick-Start Plan by Nell Stephenson in the Paleo category and use this four-week plan to jump into better healthy with a sound, balanced, ‘how to eat’ meal plan. The other six ebooks in this category contain plenty of recipes for you if you find that eating a diet low in grains works to help lower your symptoms. (MANY women find that eating this way, not necessarily 100% – will depend on the person – helps them get over PCOS)
If you’re new to “real food” and simply trying to make small changes that will benefit your health and reduce some of your symptoms, check out these ebooks from the Real Food category:
  • 227 Healthy Snacks by Laura Coppinger – Make snacktime simple with more than 227 awesome real food snacking ideas that can be prepared ahead of time and in just a few minutes, including many gluten-free options.
  • Real Food for Rookiesby Kelly the Kitchen Kop – Improve your diet and health with this simple, easy-to-follow guide to real food.
  • Your Grace-Filled Journey to Real Food by Diana Bauman – Increase your understanding of the industrial food system so that you can begin to make simple changes for the health of your family.

Putting together meals can also be made easier with the Once a Month Meals membership. They have all sorts of plans from their traditional meals, to gluten-free, to paleo, to whole foods. I’m using my plan this week to help me prepare for this next month and our busy business season!

And of course you’ll want to check out the fitness category as movement is so important for metabolism and hormonal health! If you’re like I am right now and haven’t been exercising regularly, start with the Fit2Be Foundations 5 routines.

One of the other bonus offers is a $15 credit to TriLight Health’s six best sellers – one of which is LivCare – Liver and Skin Cleansing Support (Liver, gallbladder, juandice, skin, and dermatitis support. Cleanses and rejuvenates the liver.) This would be a great pick as the liver is so important in breaking down hormones and eliminating them from the body.

Speaking of liver support, you can grab Perfect Supplements Perfect Desiccated Liver capsules for only $4.95 after using the $15 credit you get with the bundle purchase.

 

If you have endometriosis:

Since endo has such a strong gut/inflammation connection, start by reading these ebooks:

Heal Your Gut by Lee Holmes – Bring your gut flora into balance with food to achieve optimum and enduring health with this uncomplicated and achievable gut healing protocol.
Inflammation Free Zone by Amy Hager, RDN, CDE – Improve your digestion, circulation, skin, and pain levels by following these carefully crafted recommendations that address diet, lifestyle, supplements, and stress response.
Also skim through Debunking PCOS by Nat Kringoudis – Get the information you need to get your hormones back on track to tame those wild ovaries of yours and overcome PCOS and endometriosis.
Many women with endometriosis also find they have food allergies/intolerances that contribute to their pain, so the eleven cookbooks in the Allergy Friendly category will be right up your alley!

And of course you’ll want to check out the fitness category as movement is so important for metabolism and hormonal health! If you’re like I am right now and haven’t been exercising regularly, start with the Fit2Be Foundations 5 routines. It’s low impact so you won’t put yourself in more pain by working out!

One of the other bonus offers is a $15 credit to TriLight Health’s six best sellers – one of which is LivCare – Liver and Skin Cleansing Support (Liver, gallbladder, juandice, skin, and dermatitis support. Cleanses and rejuvenates the liver.) This would be a great pick as the liver is so important in breaking down hormones and eliminating them from the body.

Speaking of liver support, you can grab Perfect Supplements Perfect Desiccated Liver capsules for only $4.95 after using the $15 credit you get with the bundle purchase.

 

If you are new to healthy living:

We were all there once! And it’s something I’m continually learning about and making changes in my diet and lifestyle.

Start first with Love Your Body by Elizabeth Walling to help set you up on a healthy course of action.

For diet, first read Real Food for Rookies by Kelly the Kitchen Kop(Improve your diet and health with this simple, easy-to-follow guide to real food) and then move on to Your Grace-Filled Journey to Real Food by Diana Bauman (Increase your understanding of the industrial food system so that you can begin to make simple changes for the health of your family) and Real Food Basics: Second Edition by Kate Tietje (Learn the basics of cooking real, recognizable foods in your own kitchen).

Take a look through the cookbooks and find a few new recipes to try! There are like 36 ecookbooks, so you’re sure to find a few new meals you’ll love.

The next step is planning out a menu, but if you’d like some help as you begin, it can be made easier with the Once a Month Meals membership credit that comes free with the bundle. They have all sorts of plans from their traditional meals, to gluten-free, to paleo, to whole foods.

The next step would be to replace some of your beauty and cleaning products, so read Detox Your Home Handbook by Katie @ Wellness Mama (Discover natural alternatives to everyday household products as you walk step-by-step through the process of switching them out the easy way)DIY Personal Care Products by Nina Nelson(Start making your own personal care products with these step-by-step recipes and tips), and DIY Natural Household Cleaners by Matt & Betsy Jabs(Make all your own homemade cleaning products using simple, natural ingredients with 60+ money saving recipes for your kitchen, bathroom, laundry, wood, windows, walls, air, and more.)

Fitness is also an important aspect of keeping out bodies strong and healthy. It’s always best to start with the basics, and that would be the Foundational Five Plus ecourse from Fit2B. Then move onto the Healthy Moving Core by Jennifer Hoffman. The other courses have more advanced motions which – after laying a solid foundation – you would be MORE than ready to tackle!

 

If you are looking to increase your herbal/essential oil knowledge:

First things first, grab the Printable Essential Oil Reference Guide by Mandi Ehman and use these handy printables to quickly reference safety information and usage tips for the essential oils in your collection.

Then read The Truth About Essential Oil Safety by Lea Harris to help you sort through the fact and fiction of using essential oils safely and effectively with this guide from certified aromatherapist Lea Harris.

Sign up for the Essential Oils for Families course by Jessie Hawkins and learn to use essential oils for your whole family in a manner that is both safe, effective and based on sound science as well as How To Protect Your Family from Colds and Flu Using Essential Oils by Andrea Butje to learn which essential oils can help you prevent or recover from respiratory infections, why the oils work, and how to use them in this comprehensive, three-hour study.

And definitely sign up for The Herbarium by Marlene Adelmann (a membership site) where you’ll have access to complete and constantly updated herbal monographs, photographs and thoughtful articles as well as educational podcasts, videos, tutorials, and teaching charts.

 

If you’re already pregnant

I know a lot of you have been able to overcome infertility and are currently pregnant (I love those emails!), so check these out:
The Great Pregnancy by Kristen Burgess course, where you’ll learn the pregnancy essentials for a fantastic pregnancy, good birth experience, and healthy baby, will be really informative.
Then read Morning Sickness Remedies by Lindsey A. Morrow to learn practical and effective ways to reduce or prevent morning sickness symptoms in pregnancy.
Cooking during pregnancy and post partum can be tough, so the following ecookbooks can help you save time and have meals in the freezer ready to go!
  • CROCK’D: Slow Cooker Freezer Mealsby Kelly McNelis – Quickly fill your freezer with slow cooker meals that don’t require any cooking ahead of time, are very easy to prep and taste delicious.
  • Money Saving Mom’s Guide to Freezer Cooking by Crystal Paine – Learn the basics of freezer cooking to save time and money in the kitchen and serve your family healthy, delicious meals even on busy days!
