My name is Emily and I need to share this experience with you.
So, when I told people in my life that I was going to do a cleanse, many eyebrows lifted. Some of the first reactions to hearing about a cleanse were frightening and acutely misinformed, and so, because of this, I decided to write about my cleanse. Also, to address some of the misconceptions about the process!
Let’s break down some of the top 5 misunderstandings about this cleanse. Keep in mind, this doesn’t apply to all plans and remedies that are out there, but the guided, safe routine 10-day cleanse outlined by Nourish the Brain Institute.
Number One: Going to the bathroom. This has got to win first place for the number of comments I heard when discussing the cleanse. It is not true that being on a specific diet causes one to ‘clear their bowels’ in a rapid, unpredictable, radical way. Do people really do this type of thing to...

Are you up for adventure and discovery of your amazing gifts? Let’s get into it.
I can see you are amazing inside out.
Hello Nourish the Brain Community,
It's an honor to be writing my first blog piece for Nourish the Brain Institute. For those of you who may know, I have been working with Gemi in several capacities, all behind the scenes, for this outstanding institute.
In this interview, I was privileged to meet for the first time with John Freeman, Transcendental Meditation (TM) Director and Certified Teacher in San Luis Obispo, CA.
Gemi and I walked into his breathtaking garden oasis and set up filming right away. I could tell he was not only a profoundly eloquent person but also a fully energized advocate of the TM Community. As this was my first experience with the concept of this practice, I was all ears about its mechanics. So, watch the interview and find out what Transcendental Meditation involves, and how it is uniquely set apart from other guided meditations you may have tried.
What makes Transcendental Meditation a unique and...

Our body is a magnificent engineered machine.We put our body through all kinds of tests, and it usually passes them all with flying colors. From eating processed foods loaded with chemicals, drinking sodas or alcohol, refined sugars, smoking cigarettes, legal/illegal drugs, etc…
Today, I woke up with a wicked headache. That means only one thing, that I need to have one day of self-care. First thing I did this morning is go for a walk. I did my morning routines and went for a massage. I feel much better and my headache is completely gone, but I will still keep working today only on self-care. That's a very important one too.
Don't forget about taking care of yourself, love yourself a lot, and spend the weekend just, you know, feeling yourself. Oh, another thing that I'm going to do today is be in nature. I'm going for a hike, but not for exercise, I am going for a hike to spend time in nature, feel it and connect with myself.
Have a wonderful weekend!
This morning I had to get ready to go to one of my client's doctor's appointment, and the reason is because today was her last appointment with the diabetes doctor. She was sick with diabetes for years, she was taking medication and she was also taking insulin injections because of her Type 2 diabetes.
After working for a period of time with me and doing exactly what I told her to do, finally, with her doctor, we got her off insulin. So, this is a very difficult thing to make happen but when you are taking care of yourself, there is nothing more rewarding and there is no better investment than that one.
Have a wonderful weekend!
It's been an incredibly busy time at Nourish the Brain Institute. The launching of the new program Dynamic Nutrition Specialist is something I've been looking forward to for the last six months as our team has been working to build it from the ground up.
From script writing to filming, to the addition of new team members and website features, there is so much to celebrate!
It all started when I had an idea, that I could not have developed fully without the use of my higher faculties.
One day my mentor, Bob Proctor, helped to realize the importance for the world what I do and how that can help many in the world.
“It would be selfish to keep it for yourself, it is your soul calling, you have to educate people about the importance of what you do, how that can heal their brain, body, and mind."
That phrase took me totally out of my comfort zone but didn’t matter whatever would take I was going to do it and I did it....
We all have heard about inflammation but often we are not clear of, what it is or how that can be a problem for us our health?
Every health issue that we may have or had, started with an inflammatory process, except for the accidents.
Most of the time it starts in our gut and because we can’t feel it in the beginning, we keep doing or eating what it will become a problem in the future for us.
We all heard about sensitivities, we are not allergic to something but often when we eat that specific thing causes some symptoms in our body that makes us feel uncomfortable.
When you feel bloated after eating certain foods or stomach pain after eating others.
Our joints are sore, we have trouble focusing or we simply feel sick.
Inflammation is a subtle thing, is a silence beast that when you notice it is because it took over you and you are already having problems.
The most common foods that cause inflammation are:
