I hope that you will check out the new site and let me know what you think.
This month I resume my "Healthful Eating Series" with an in-depth look at fish.
Sage essential oil can help transmute the Fear of Letting Go into Happiness.

What Fish Is Good For Me?
Fish is one of the most nutritious foods available. Humanity’s interference with natural seafood – farm raising and processing – degrade this nutritional status somewhat. This article will help you make informed decisions about purchasing seafood.
What’s So Great About Fish?
Fish is accurately touted as an excellent source of minerals and nutrients that we usually don’t get elsewhere. It supplies high quality protein, iodine, potassium and various minerals and vitamins. It lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, supports improved vision, and even improves sleep – among many other health benefits.
Fatty species – salmon, trout, sardines, tuna, and mackerel – supply omega-3 fatty acids which are crucial for optimum body and brain function and are strongly linked to reduced risk of many diseases. They also supply Vitamin D, a fat-soluble nutrient.
Notably, of the 25 body types, only 6 have any fish at all listed in the “rarely” food lists – meaning once a month or less. These are Balanced body type (sea bass), Blood (anchovy, mussels and shrimp), Adrenal (crab, scallops and shrimp), Intestinal (tuna), Liver (abalone), and Thalamus (oysters). All other seafoods are supportive or ultra-supportive for all 25 body types, meaning they can be consumed multiple times per week.
Farm-Raised vs. Wild Caught
Well over half of the fish consumed in the USA is farm raised rather than wild caught. At your local supermarket, usually 75% of the fish is farmed. It’s common perception that “wild caught” fish is more desirable than “farm-raised” – but why?
Aquaculture is the industry name for fish raised commercially in controlled, confined areas – “farms”. Aquaculture farms exists for several reasons:
With a growing human population and increasing regulation to protect from overfishing, fish farms make sense on paper. The trade-off is in the nutritional quality when compared with fish caught in the wild:
Wild caught fish is the clear winner for nutrition and toxins. On farm-raised fish, look for labels such as “Certified Organic” and “All-Natural” to avoid chemicals.
How Much of a Problem is Mercury?
Fish contamination by Mercury is not a new topic. Mercury in our waters comes from both natural as well as man-made sources. It’s a naturally-occurring element produced by volcanic activity, and the erosion of rocks containing mercury ore. Human activities such as mining, coal combustion, and industrial processes and disposal also produce mercury. In aquatic environments, natural bacterial processes convert inorganic mercury into the more toxic methylmercury, which enters foods chains and accumulates in fish.
Methylmercury is not easily secreted once ingested, so it accumulates. The amount of methylmercury in fish is a direct result of how long the fish lives and how carnivorous it is. Larger fish that live longer and eat smaller fish have higher concentrations.
Shrimp is the most-consumed fish in the USA, followed by tuna, then salmon. The chart below (source: FDA) shows the typical concentration of methylmercury in various popular fish in ppm (parts-per-million):
To mitigate your mercury intake, choose fish with lower concentrations.
Processing and Additives
Fish processing sometimes introduces additives you’ll want to avoid. Premade fish products, such as fish sticks or even canned tuna, may contain high levels of added sodium, erythorbic acid, sodium erythorbate, sorbic acid or other preservatives.
Sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP) is sometimes added to help fish protein retain water – to make fish seem fresher and glossier and more appealing. It’s commonly used on shrimp, scallops, and flaky fish like flounder. It may be a neurotoxin and isn’t required to be listed on the label. Ask whether the fish you’re purchasing is “dry” – because “wet” means it’s been soaked in phosphates.
Wild caught salmon is pink, while farm raised salmon can be an unappealing beige. Salmon farmers routinely add chemical dyes to the feed. The FDA considers these dyes safe in certain quantities, but requires their presence to be indicated on the food labelling. Some researchers have linked these dyes to eye defects and retinal damage, while others have linked them to hyperactivity in children. Check the labelling to see if the fish contains color additives.
|Are You a Pancreas Body Type?|
Pancreas Body Types are bubbly and bring joy to those around them
Pancreas body types can lose weight by avoiding bread, alcohol, caffeine, sodas, salt, sugar and dairy; rotating foods; exercising 1 hour 6 days per week; and not eating after 7:00 PM.
The Core Emotional Issues for the Pancreas body type are Fear of Betrayal, Fear of Being Wrong, and Letting Go.

Determining your body type is easy using my online body type test:
Discover your body type to learn what to eat and when, how to manage your weight without unhealthy dieting, how to increase your energy and stamina, and how to end food cravings forever. You’ll also learn the best type and time for exercise, and receive a detailed personality profile.

Sage Essential Oil
Transmutes Fear of Intimacy
Sage has been considered a sacred herb since ancient times, and has been recognized for its benefits in strengthening the vital centers of the body while balancing the pelvic chakra where negative emotions from denial and abuse are stored. It is mentally stimulating and helps combat mental fatigue and despair. Sage has been used for oral infections, skin conditions, and liver problems. It has been found to help menstrual problems/PMS, and to balance deficiencies of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Dilute 1 part Sage to 1 part vegetable oil, apply 2-4 drops on location and on chakras, diffuse, directly inhale.
Known as “herba sacra,” or “sacred herb,” by the ancient Romans, sage (Salvia officinalis) derives its botanical name from the Latin word for salvation. Traditionally used in clearing rituals, Sage essential oil has a bold, herbaceous aroma that can be used aromatically for this same purpose. A few drops of Sage adds a savory herbal flavor to poultry, soups and sauces.
Would you like to experience more happiness in life? Happiness is experienced through letting go of something that’s keeping us from feeling happy. The fear of Letting Go is a core emotional issue for the Gallbladder and Pancreas body types. The other side of Letting Go is Happiness. Sage has traditionally been used for cleansing and clearing of both people and spaces. To release the emotion of the fear of letting go, apply sage to the bladder point and emotional points on the forehead. The way to shift into Happiness is to use the affirmation, “Let go and let God” or “Let go and let live”.
Oils Lookup now includes a brand new feature, which I call a “reverse lookup”. Normally you identify an emotional pattern you want to release, in order to attain the higher dimensional aspect of that emotion. Now you can choose the emotion you WANT to experience more of – and Oils Lookup will show you the emotional patterns to clear that will transmute into that more desirable emotion.
Sage also transmutes Drama into Practical, with the affirmation “I am reasonable”. This is a brand new emotion added since the most recent paperback edition of “Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils” was published in 2020. This clearing pattern appears in Oils Lookup as well as the 2022 Addendum. These are 2 places where you can keep up-to-date with new oils and emotions in between releases of the “blue book”.
