After the holiday indulgence period, this is the time of year that so many want to make a fresh start on their health. It's one of the biggest resolutions made around the world. Resolutions such as:
Most of you know that when you feel good, you move through the seasons with ease and joy. However, I know most of you because you don't feel good. My job as a Traditional Naturopath is to use my experience and training to assist you in achieving your health goals.
Sometimes we go astray (like I did this holiday season by eating too much sugar). Other times life throws us curveballs and we get off track.
Whatever and wherever we are on our own health journeys, I hope you take a moment tonight to think about what areas of your life are out of balance and in your control. Where do you want to focus for the new...
I don't know about you, but I love it when the hot summer days turn into the cooler days of autumn. It marks a transition time that we should pay attention to with regards to our health.
School, online or in person, starts again and a new cycle begins that we should support our immune systems for.
Changes in diet as we move forward should include warming and colorful foods. Spices like cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and turmeric can be added to steamed oat milk or coconut milk for a nice morning pick me up.
If the damp and cool weather makes your bones ache, you'll want to prepare some homemade Epsom salt baths with 1:1 ratio of Epsom salt and baking soda. Add essential oils of your choice 7 drops / 2 cups of dry mix. Some I like to include are Eucalyptus, Ginger, Orange, and Frankincense.
I've put together a few immune favorites for this time of year that you can order on FullScript here:
In North Carolina we've been experiencing the ups and downs of weather with fog, hail, rain, tornados and sunshine. Needless to say, my favorite is the sunshine. We have a gaggle of goslings that hatched last week and I'm enjoying my mornings on the porch watching them waddle past.
What are you looking forward to this Summer? We already have healthy popsicles and herbal iced tea going. Two of our current recipes we'll include below for you to try your hand at making.
This month I wanted to address when to book a Follow-Up Consultation appointment with me. If you have already had an Initial Consultation appointment and have a sample envelope sent in, you can book a Follow-Up Consultation when recommended; if you are having any new issues, or if it's simply been a while and you want to get back on track.
Follow-Up Consultations are used to make sure you are achieving your health and wellness...
This is one of my favorite times of the year. Everything in North Carolina is blooming so that means liver/allergy support time is here. Some simple solutions:

I have a new toy in the office which allows me to broadcast Rife Frequencies into your testing envelope. If you'd like an appointment simply book an Energy Balancing appointment. If you'd like to purchase your own, I have a referral link for...
I am so happy to report that I’ve noticed so much more reaching out and connecting this holiday season. I wanted to add my thanks to all of you. It is so important to connect, communicate and create at this time.
However you choose to celebrate this holiday season I wish you happiness, health and a cultivation of what Rudolf Steiner called “holistic thinking”. Holistic thinking involves asking why and finding the truth out for yourself. Everyone of you are on the path of holistic health because you asked “Why?”
Why am I having these symptoms? Why am I unable to feel enough energy to get through the day? Why am I so stressed? Why do I have to be taught what is healthy for my body to eat and drink? Why, why, why?
Keep asking this question as you move through this season. Keep looking for answers to your health questions. This is a time of great reflection and imagination. If social...
Join me in my autumn musings on how we can incorporate more nature into our lives.
Lately, everywhere I look there is a news report, scientific article, or social media attack on nature. As if the very thought of something natural is dirty, tainted or contaminated. I study Anthroposophical Medicine where the focus is on restoring natural states of health within our bodies by turning to nature - not away.
Practicing naturopathy is utilizing the best nature has to offer. The colors, sounds, textures and tastes that can and do stimulate healing responses. How can you incorporate this into your daily lives?
#1 - Experience Nature
Get out and experience your natural habitat, even if that means spending an hour in your own back yard. Don’t bring your technology - leave distractions behind.
Did you know that the Brown Thrasher can sing 2,000 song variations? Nature is diverse and...
Hello beautiful and healthy people!
It's been a year since my last blog but it feels like it was just yesterday. Where is the time going? I've been calling it, the COVID Time Warp.
COVID has changed the landscape for work, family, health and well, EVERYTHING. I know, I know, you're tired of hearing about it, reading about it and thinking about it. Believe me, I am too. But there has been some bright lights for the past year. I've been keeping extremely busy, but I like that.
If I haven't heard from you in awhile, feel free to send me an email or quick text to just let me know how you are doing.
Life-Thyme Solutions has been adapting, shifting and changing along with everyone else. We've had some changes and in this blog I aim to give you all the updates.
So, there is first and foremost an address change. I am still in lusciously green North Carolina - because I love it here. But I've moved!...
I hope this finds everyone safe and sound. These are difficult times, but they are not hopeless times. Just like you, I have had friends, family and clients who have gone through COVID-19 scares. Thankfully no one I know has died.
My heart goes out to those who have experienced dealing with death during this time - whether from the frontlines or with your own household.
My mom was in the ICU for 3 days (she is okay now) and my dad had an ER visit and came home with a nebulizer. It's been scary. Many of the practitioners I work with have shared they've experienced COVID symptoms but were unable to get tested. Some have ended up in the hospital, or diagnosed by their primary care doctor, with pneumonia.
In my consulting practice, clients have had pneumonia symptoms and urgent care diagnoses since late November and I wonder how many of those may have been this virus? I have no idea when we will know the truth but I do...
Hello my health conscious friends!
I hope this finds you well and safe. I wanted to send a message to FEAR NOT. Not because I have any answers or a magic remedy to fix the situation, but because FEAR CAN LOWER YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM.

One of our healthy activities we are doing at home is growing organic sprouts from Hamama. It’s the easiest, cleanest and best way I have ever grown sprouts. My daughter has kept us in sprouts weekly. Click on my affiliate link to order yours here: SANDRA’S HAMAMA LINK
I have received phone calls, emails, and texts (with lots of emojis) expressing stress and worry over the Corona Virus (COVID-19).
Yes, this is a serious health crisis we are under. Most people and companies are unprepared for how to handle quarantine, supplies, business protocols, childcare and anything else that is...
Where has the time gone? I mean, it seems like it was just yesterday I was enjoying beautiful summer weather and now it's Thanksgiving! I know, if you are like me, the days are full and that is a blessing. For some, you may feel like you never get around to really committing to health. This newsletter is for you. I have a few updates that may help you.
Last month I did my first ever booth for the Cornelius Chamber of Commerce Business Expo. We raffled off a beautiful basket filled with health goodies and I did free tongue screenings (much to the surprise of those passing by. Yes, I'm that lady - the one who looks at your tongue to see how healthy you are). LOL
My new practice is slowly building up local support. I appreciate technology and the ability to keep and support my clients around the US. Are you having as much fun during a tele-session as I am???
