Health Coach Lili, Rebekah's Health & Nutrition

Meet our Health Coach Lili!

Hello all! My name is Lili Conner and I am a graduate from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition located in New York City. I am a certified Holistic Nutrition Health Coach. I am also a single mother of two small kiddos, a five year old boy and a two year old girl. As a health coach, I firmly believe we are given the resources to fully heal here on Mother Earth. If given the right environment our bodies would thrive and not struggle to survive. Every person is different, we refer to that as bio-individuality. What works for me, might be toxic for another human. I try to hear each client to the best of my ability, and guide them for what they need or the goals they want to reach. Recently I have begun diving into infectious diseases and how to help create a better atmosphere inside of the body to fight and defeat bacteria & viruses.

Outside of the nutrition and exercise aspects, I also take a holistic approach. For complete health and happiness it takes the mind, body, and soul to be aligned. I use a tool called the “Circle of Life” which is a great visual representation to show all aspects. We dive into spirituality, career, relationships, family, joy, finances, and much more. Sometimes we just need a gentle reminder brought to our attention for things to start flowing how we need again.

So why do YOU need a health coach? Great question!

How many times have you been to the doctor with a problem and they say “yes! You should lose weight. Here is a pill.” OR better yet “eat less and move more.” Yeah…that is all great and dandy. But how realistic is that one? A health coach is a guide on the side to formulate a plan specific for you. Not only will I make a plan to help you get to your goals, I help keep you accountable with multiple 1 on 1 sessions through the month, we also take a look at your mental health & habits in general. Health Coaches help to bridge the gap between doctors and clients. We put in the time needed to truly help guide and change habits when needed. A health coach will help you make better general choices that fit your lifestyle. Health coaches identify your greatest areas of struggle and provide the support needed to overcome those struggles, while creating a new balance for you.

If this is something that interests you or you feel you need a little extra love on your journey, call or come up to Rebekah’s in Clarkston!

Live!

Love,

Lili

Here are the benefits of following 14 to 20 days cleanse before beginning your program. No worries if you have already started your work-out routine, it is never too late to cleanse the body of impurities.

Remove Toxins – Detoxing will remove the harmful toxins and heavy metals from your body especially from the liver.

Jump start weight loss – The detoxification process done by itself, will cause you to lose weight before you start the actual diet.

Improve Digestion of Food – By cleansing your body it will adjust to better digesting of the new improved food that you are going to feed it.

Rid Body of Sodium – The detoxification will also rid your body of the harmful storage of sodium.

Increases Nutrition Absorption – By cleansing your body in advance of starting a diet, your body will be able to absorb all of the nutrients from the food you will be consuming thus making you feel much more energetic on a low calorie diet.

Rebalanced System – Your gastrointestinal tract will be cleansed during the detoxification stage which will assist in rebalancing the system.

Christina Bray- Celebrate the Ordinary

Long post.. sorry not sorry😜

As I was driving my tired (ok exhausted) self home last night. Eating my ordinary protein bar and wearing my ordinary black yoga pants I started to think about how awfully ordinary my life is and it made me sad

Then this morning as I’m sipping my coffee, eating landons leftover bagel, wearing a different pair of black yoga pants, hair washed but not brushed… my life felt so ordinary yet again

School drop off and pick ups, juice boxes. Endless piles of laundry. Kids that constantly have questions, need help, or want to pick a fight. Day after day where I thank god for my ability to run off the stress but also day after day of so, so, so much ordinary

And then it hits me… ORDINARY is good. I mean, It can be anyways. It’s all how we choose to look at it right?

Sometimes I think we look at the highlight reel and grade ourselves on a scale that forgets that ordinary is perfection and ALL THE REST is just a bonus 👈 read that again!

The days that we “get” to spend with our kids. The messes we “get” to clean up. The memes that tell our story without us saying a word (you know which ones I’m talking about!!). Those are days we could take for granted and we probably often do

Ordinary does not mean easy. I mean who wants easy??? It doesnt mean doors wont be slammed. Bills wont be late. Yoga pants wont be tight or kids wont talk back.

It doesn’t mean your ex wont be a nightmare or your job wont be stressful. It doesnt mean relationships wont end or that you wont ever get sick. It also doesnt mean you wont just be really, really tired both mentally and physically sometimes. Im here to tell you that there is SO MUCH freaking tired in the ordinary and it’s ok

So for today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year… lets choose to celebrate the ordinary❤

Knock Out Your Cold or Flu with Natural Remedies

If you are under the weather, there is no need to rush out to purchase an over the counter medication. Prompt relief can be found naturally with these two remedies that contain potent antibiotics and antiviral properties. Garlic in its natural form and oregano oil can stop a sore throat before it gets worse.

Order online or stop into any of our stores.

You can add 5 or 6 drops of oregano oil to a glass of water and drink it. Your flu will be gone in as little as 24 hours. Garlic on the other hand is known for it antibacterial properties. Two fresh cloves of garlic in a small glass of water will work wonders.

It should be noted that most children do not like these natural remedies as they are very strong in taste. I’ve found that spreading the oregano oil on the child’s feet works just as well as taking it orally.  Women who are expecting should not take oregano oil and they should also limit their use of garlic cloves to one clove a day.

These natural remedies will help to knock that cold or flu out of your system. It is important that you also get the proper rest at all times so that your body can regenerate strength without getting rundown. If you happen to be suffering from the symptoms of a cold or flu, proper rest is important to permit the body to recuperate from the illness. Drinking lots of water will also help to flush the toxins out of your body.

Making sure that your body receives the important nutrients that it needs will also help it to resist disease and bacteria. Having enough of vitamins C & D in your body will also aid the body in resisting colds and the flu.
