Relax at Tranquility

The journey towards beauty, health & wellness begins at Tranquility.

Sticking it to Spirochetes (aka Lyme Disease!) August 31, 2017

Filed under: Events,Healing,Support — relaxattranquility @ 10:00 am

As many of you know, I was diagnosed last year with Lyme disease. I’ve probably had it for over 10 years, but I was misdiagnosed and now it’s considered Chronic Lyme Disease. These little buggers called Spirochete bacteria can burrow into any tissue in the body and cause havoc. They also become antibiotic resistant and just start to take over. Those of you who know me, know that I am kind of a science geek (or mad scientist in the facial room a least!) so I will try not to get too crazy with my explanations. ūüôā

The bottom line is, after doing some treatments here that were not successful and talking ¬†to a lot of people with Lyme disease who have tried all kinds of treatments, I’ve chosen to go to San Jose los Cabos, Mexico for stem cell treatment. I will try to blog as often as I can so you can see how things are going and say hi if you’d like. I am very excited about this treatment and the clinic I am going to.

I want to thank all of you for your unending support. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of kindness, generosity, love and prayers from all of you. My heart is full of gratitude. I will miss each and every one of you, but I will be back stronger than ever. As a dear friend quoted ” Lyme disease doesn’t know who it decided to mess with!!” ¬†I hope that I will bring awareness. comfort and hope to anyone suffering from this horrible disease. Please feel free to pass this on to anyone you know who may need help.

I hope to hear from anyone who feels like writing to me. I will start the actual blog from the clinic on September 11 which will be my first day. Until then, be safe and enjoy the holiday weekend.

Love and Blessings

Beverly

Going grain free & Blueberry Lemon Muffins Recipe August 27, 2013

This fast paced world we live in has led to convenience foods that are processed grains and sugar. These things are causing disease and destroying our health. It may be hard for some of you to comprehend that the all-mighty grain could be causing destruction, but it’s true! As we look at grains and how they are processed in the body, we think you will see the trouble they are causing.

  1. Grains are not edible in nature without being processed.
  2. Grains are made up of a large amount of starch surrounded by a kernel. When broken down, this converts to sugar in the body. High levels of sugar put stress on several organs that must work harder to try and maintain a healthy blood sugar level. Over time, these organs break down and disease becomes rampant.
  3. Grains that are refined have been stripped of the nutrients that are required to help during the digestion process. In turn, nutrients are taken from the body to help with digestion. This leads to nutrient deficiencies.
  4. Grains are loaded with allergens that disrupt our immune systems and lead to allergies.
  5. Since grains are complex, they require multiple stages of digestion to be utilized by the body. Often times, the second stage of digestion does not occur. As a result, inflammation and gas are produced in the gut along along with possible damage to the intestinal tract.

You may be experiencing some of these symptoms and perhaps you have made the choice to eliminate grains from your diet already. If not, now is a great time to start the elimination process! Our bodies want to be healthy. As soon as you begin providing what is needed, your health will thrive. The good news is: Many products are now available that allow for grain-free alternatives of your favorite baked goods.

Coconut flour is an excellent alternative for baked foods. Most people who have tried it can hardly tell the difference. This recipe from Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfillipo uses coconut flour:

Paleo Blueberry Lemon Muffins

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup grade B maple syrup
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest
  • ¬†1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries

Prep Time: 15 minutes       Cooking Time: 35-40 minutes     Yield: 12 muffins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Whisk the eggs, butter or coconut oil, pure vanilla extract, and maple syrup, lemon juice, and lemon zest together in a large mixing bowl. Sift in the coconut flour, sea salt, and baking soda and stir until well combined. Gently fold in the blueberries.

In a muffin tin, scoop 1/4 cup of the batter into each lined muffin cup (natural parchment muffin papers work best for lining), and bake for 35-40 minutes.

Mix up the add-ins to make different flavors. They are pretty hard to mess up so have fun with it!

Enjoy!

Putting Your Best Face Forward…The Final Touch 1 Month May 30, 2013

I am still alive and kicking! I¬†can’t believe it’s been one month since my laser peel. My skin is feeling and looking fabulous. I am being very careful not to get any sun on my face, so if you see some lady walking around St. Charles in a big beach sun hat1 month peel, just honk and wave ūüôā¬† It’s just me out on a walk.1 month peel side

This is me!! No make-up at all. I realize it is hard to tell from these pictures, but the texture of my skin is soft and smooth. The lines around my eyes and mouth are almost completely gone. The hyper-pigmentation is considerably improved. It is truly amazing.

Today,¬† Amy Hornstrom, our permanent make-up specialist, is going to enhance my eyebrows. As you can see from the picture, they are a little sparce in areas. I usually fill them in with powder on a daily basis, so this will save a step in my regimen.¬† I am really looking forward to seeing the end result and sharing this with all of you as well. after eyebrowsBefore (below) and directly after (right)¬†. Looks Amazing !!!! Thanks Amy ūüôā¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†
