Education + Books
Switch on Your Brain book
After dealing with mental difficulties myself for several years and trying numerous strategies, Dr. Leaf’s Bible-based materials are what truly turned things around in my life. I recommend this book to anyone who is iterested in improving their thought life!
21 Day Brain Detox Program
In my opinion, the 21 Day Brain Detox is superior to traditional counseling/therapy in that you are never told what to fix. Only you and God truly know what you need and what you are ready for. This program helps you take ownership of yourself and your life. Somehow our society has gotten to the point where we feel we must have other people fix our problems. When we take responsibility for changing and let God’s Word dictate our thoughts, every facet of our lives is healthier!
Creating Wealth eBook
This book is perfect for anyone struggling with health problems that has been disappointed with mainstream dieting and medicine. Catherine is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner who explains the relationship between food and a balanced, healthy body. Her website Butter Nutrition is one of my favorites. This book has helped me with fatigue and hormone issues and I’m so grateful! I love her approach – instead of dieting and deprivation, she explains that when your body has everything it needs through an abundance of real food, your health will soar and your weight will balance!
The Maker’s Diet Book
This is one of the most fascinating books I’ve ever read. Jordan Rubin explains his spiral into severe Chron’s disease and how his health was restored by eating only the foods made by God and mentioned in the Bible.
Food, Supplements, Natural Living Products
Fresh, clean water is one of the most vital factors for vibrant health. Unfortunately, most water filters on the market don’t cut it when it comes to purity. We LOVE our Berkey home filtration system! It filters out all the bad stuff including fluoride which most filters miss (read about the dangers of fluoride here) and leaves all the good, naturally occurring minerals. Get it here!
Our next favorite kitchen item is our Champion Juicer. Highly recommended for transforming your health! With juicing, you can consume MANY more vitamins and minerals than you could just eating the fruits and veggies. For example, you can fit 8 carrots in a glass of about 4 oz. of juice! Perfect for anyone who struggles to get enough servings of fruits and veggies into their day. Juicing is a perfect starting point for anyone who wants to improve their health quickly. After I started juicing, I immediately noticed a difference in my sleep – I was falling asleep FAST because my body was getting the micronutrients it needed. The Champion is easy to clean, works like a champ, and comes with a great warranty. Get it here.

The past 3 years, my Amazon Prime membership has been worth every penny. The money I’ve saved on gas, the stress I’ve avoided by not having to shop with my kids, the fun of shopping in my jammies, is not to be overrated. Also the fact that they have pretty much everything you could ever need (with the exception of perishables in most places) is pretty cool. The prices are comparable to what you would pay at the store, without the work! I love getting vitamins, supplements, and natural products there. I’m also a pretty big Kindle book junkie.
