Disaster in Japan can affect our food supply

Hi People, Since the radiation leak is out of control and affecting our ocean water, fish and sea vegetation will be affected. Please be careful when buying fish or seaweed, or Kobe beef. You need to know the source.  I would not doubt that it will also hit and affect salmon and halibut in Alaska and the west coast of America, not to mention Hawaii as well. Buy your fish from a source on the east coast. Try to get fish from Europe as well. Dover sole or branzino and other white fish should be safe, as well as salmon from the UK.

When I was younger I met Mischio Kushi, the founder of macrobiotic eating. He told me a story of a group of hospital workers in Japan who went out in to the streets collecting the wounded after we bombed Hiroshima. Even though the sky was bright orange for days and days and the radiation levels were very high, the group from the hospital did NOT get affected being exposed to the radation. A study was done afterwards and it was determined that the only common link for the group of hospital workers was their diet, which was macrobiotic. Please get a book and learn as much as you can about this way of eating. It could help save your life one day. AND PRAY that this has a happy ending in Japan. Could you imagine how these people are being tested on a day to day basis. Even taking a shower has to scare them to death. I hope we could all come together and ban the spread of nuclear energy. Why create something so dangerous that cannot be controlled? It is absurd. Women should rule the world. We think from our gut and not our minds. I am not a feminist. I still nurture my husband every day of my life and think it is an honor to do so. In India, the ancient religions teach you to think from your gut and be in touch with a higher  level of ‘knowing’ so that you don’t make silly decisions like the use of nuclear energy for power.  DUHHHH.

Reflexology treatment cleaned out her colon

Yesterday I gave a beautiful 33 year old woman a reflexology. She loved it. The next day she told me that when she went to the bathroom, her entire colon released in one solid piece. She said she never experienced this before. She felt light and amazing. She was shocked because she is very thin, healthy, and did not know so much was in her at one time. If you can, get reflexology a few times a month. Go to someone who really understands the points. It makes all of the difference. xoxo

Facial on a 20 year old

Hello People, today I had the pleasure of working on a beautiful 20 year old girl. She had her last facial with me several months ago. Her skin is not doing so well because she is eating sugar, drinking lots of coffee and NOT drinking any water. I want you to know that it does not do you any good to buy products to clear your skin. YOU MUST DO IT FROM THE INSIDE OUT. Products can help a lot but they will NEVER stop you from breaking out. The only way to have clear skin is to follow my book, which is true common sense. I am not trying to ‘sell’ the book. BUT it is the best investment you can make for health and beauty. Even though she has the book, she picks and chooses what she wants to follow. AND it does not work. You have to keep your body clean inside if you want to be healthy and have pretty skin. Pass the word ladies.

Japan

Hello Everyone. I don’t even know where to begin about Japan. Could you imagine what they are going through there? I wish I could help but it is a monumental task. Prayers and money will help but they also need manpower to move out the garbage and start to rebuild. I wish it were warm at least. My heart breaks for these people. Please do what ever you can and remember that prayers really do help as well. xoxoxo

I lost 10 pounds in 5 days

It was not my intent to lose it that quickly. I just adjusted my diet a little and the weight just keeps coming off. I now make my salad dressings with only 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. (organic) and 1/2 teaspoon of anchovy paste, fresh ground white pepper and fresh herbs. It is delicious. Also, I now use a cast iron pan for cooking all of my proteins and use no oil at all. If the pan is hot enough the fish/meat will sear and if you leave it alone for 5 minutes on the first side, you can flip it easily. I just dress the protein with fresh lemon or lime juice and rind right before serving. I don’t miss the oil at all. My skin is not suffering from it because I am still eating a couple of avacado’s a week and I eat nuts and seeds. BUT, my fat is coming off and I could not be happier.

I also gave up all grains once again. Until the rest of the 40 pounds comes off I won’t have any pasta, rice or bread. It is TOUGH but I am determined. Now, if I could only give up dairy, I would be thin in no time. 

Lots of love to you all.

Children’s Burn Foundation IS making a difference

Last night my husband and I had the privilege of  attending the benefit for The Children’s Burn Foundation in Los Angeles. It was a very humbling experience rife with emotion. We were able to meet some of the burn victims and witness how the Children’s Burn Foundation has truly changed their lives. They are remarkable little people who have been dealt a terrible blow that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. I met Jean Trebek a few years ago and she kindly introduced me to the organization. Jean’s heart is so big and her spirit is so generous, I am grateful to her for enriching my life. She is on the committee and works tirelessly for the organization. I asked their permission to include their donation cards in our  Susan Ciminelli mail orders that we send out to our customers all over the world in order to help raise awareness for these children in need. They agreed!! I hope and pray that you don’t mind. Please do what you can for these little soldiers. They truly are victims of circumstance. Their scars are their painful reminders of the tragedythat they have experienced. Please find it in your hearts to donate what ever you can. Even $5 will help. For more information please look up The Children’s Burn Foundation.  You can become part of a network of angels for these well deserving little people. What goes around comes around. Thank you so much for considering. I am truly grateful no matter what you give. Much LOVE to you!!! xoxox
