A few years ago, I acquired a nifty little tool called the Zyto Compass.

This little tiny hand cradle (and huge software addition to my laptop) started out as being a simple addition to my natural wellness arsenal. Basically, it told me what was out of balance in my body and then gave me suggestions about how I could fix the imbalances. My family loved it, my team loved it, I loved it.

It was a great help.

Fast forward a couple years, and there's now a new kid on the block: The Zyto Balance.

Think of the most confusing part of your body, one that you can't understand why it's doing what it's doing. Like, why are you sweating at night? How come your stomach is punching you from the inside? Why do your feet look like you're wearing green socks and you're actually not? Why do you you feel like you can't share your ideas? Why can't you talk to people without wanting to throat punch them? (Just me? Um, okay then . . . of course I'm kidding, but we all have those days right?)

I thought the Zyto Compass was cool. But it doesn't hold a candle to the Balance. Not only does it tell you what's up with your body and give suggestions, it actually goes THROUGH each of your Four Core systems in insane detail: Gastrointestinal, Endocrine/Hormonal, Immune, and Detoxification. It also covers what types of things are stressing out your sleep patterns, your skin, your emotional health, and SO MUCH MORE. In fact, it takes a good hour just to go through the results. 

So if you've been struggling with anything physical, mental, emotional or beyond, PLEASE let me help you (or rather, let the Balance help you). It will give you some insight as to what areas you need to focus on for total health and wellness. You can do it!

NOTE: We need to be able to meet in person as physical touch is what makes the scan work. I live in Central Minnesota. It's awesome.

Blood Sugar Rush

Our body is amazing, isn't it? I don't have to tell my heart to keep the blood pumping. My brain just knows when it's time to sleep. My lungs just keep doing their thing, no help from me really. When I stub my toe, there's that "lag time" between the initial collision and when my brain registers it so you know that's REALLY going to hurt.

When I was pregnant with my two kids, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I tried to keep it under control with diet and exercise but unfortunately that wasn't enough. I eventually had to get serious: multiple finger pricks per day, pre-loaded insulin syringes that I had to administer myself (I got over my fear of needles really quickly), tons of checkups at the doc.


Luckily, after both births, my body went back to normal and my blood sugar started taking control of itself. I'm at a higher risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes, but for now, I'm handling it. 

Today was my annual endocrinology (diabetes) checkup at the local clinic. I dread this appointment because every year, no matter how hard I try, my numbers always get worse: my weight, my A1C, my fasting glucose, everything. It didn't help that yesterday was Valentine's Day where chocolate flows like water (why oh why did I chose today for an appointment!?)

But this year, for the first time ever, my numbers did not get worse. I was shocked. Did they do a 180 and everything is in normal range? Well, no, but for the first time, there's improvement. I can live with improvement! My weight went down a bit, my A1C went down a little, my fasting glucose was a little high (damn you chocolate), and my other numbers improved as well (apparently my "good cholesterol" is low, but so is my "bad"). 

Am I doing things differently? I'm trying! I'm only human. I'm working out (so gross!), trying to eat less sugar (sugar addiction is a THING!), and doing supplements. I honestly believe my supplements have been a huge part in IMPROVEMENTS. Here's a few that I take:

Balance Complete
I try to have a shake a day, at least every/other day. I like to CHEW things so this has taken some getting used to, but it tastes amazing and helps me curb my sugar cravings, so it's really been a positive change for me.

One I try to never go without! I helps flush the "bad" from my system and helps me control my body's response to inflammation. 

I've actually just started using these. I like them! They support my metabolism which is always a helpful thing.

Believe Essential Oil
The right mindset can make all the difference. I still have bad days, but I have way more uplifting ones. Applying this oil really resonates with me and helps me have a positive spin on my thoughts!

So here's to IMPROVEMENTS. I hope for little ones all year long.
