What one thing do you want women to understand most about natural prevention and healing?
Let food be your medicine. Learn to focus on foods that alkalize and balance your body like matcha tea and other green foods. Avoid sugar, grains, toxins and stress. When making dietary choices, you either feed the cancer or food your body. You get to choose.
Why can women do daily to balance their energy?
Meditate. It’s free, doesn’t require a change of clothes and when practiced regularly has proven profound health benefits. Go for a walk and play in the sunshine. Dance to your favorite music.
When did you first discover matcha tea?
Very recently and I immediately added it under the Medicinal Foods Category on my site. Its high antioxidant and chlorophyll content make it a perfect food for natural prevention and healing. Matcha has over 100 times more EGCG than regular green tea, which makes it a perfect choice for women that are being proactive with prevention.
How do you like to drink it?
I drink a few hot cups in the morning, which helps me to calmly focus on my tasks at hand. I also like to add matcha to my morning green drink with kale, celery and green apple. Everyday I practice prevention by making informed decisions for my body. And so can you.
