The Wonders of Milk Thistle

The Wonders of Milk Thistle

 

Milk Thistle

 

Ever wonder what a “ thistle” actually is?! You’ve probably seen this beautiful flower out in a field or along a highway or country road somewhere. This flower is more than beautiful, it packs a powerful liver detoxification punch!

“As a liver support and liver aid, milk thistle is a powerful liver cleanser. It helps rebuild liver cells while removing toxins from the body that are processed through the liver. Milk thistle is effective at naturally reversing the harmful effects of alcohol consumption, pesticides in our food supply, heavy metals in our water supply, pollution in the air that we breathe and even poisons!” (Quote from Dr Axe online)

It’s one of the supplements I personally take on a daily basis ( I take mine in a liquid tincture form) as part of a healthy eating regimen.

The milk thistle plant, as is prominently displayed in the name and logo of Thistle Farms & Thistle Farms Cafe, is symbolic of the physical, mental and emotional detoxification process the survivors who are healed and rehabilitated through the Thistle Farms programs experience.

Learn more about Thistle Farms, hear from our Keynote Conversation guest, Nashville News Reporter Harriet Vaughn-Wallace, and network with other women during my upcoming Women’s Empowerment Luncheon on Saturday July 21st!

Punta Cana Bliss

Punta Cana Bliss

 

 

🌴 Ataraxia: A state of freedom from emotional disturbance and anxiety; tranquillity

🌊 Relaxing in and by the water is one of the most rejuvenating practices for me. Punta Cana was the perfect vacation to feed my soul. We learned new Spanish words, ate the most delicious fresh fruits & veggies my heart desired, many which are grown locally on the resort property, danced in the pool for hours, dipped my toes in the ocean, learned about Dominican culture & way of life and enjoyed the Yhi Spa several times. I’m always grateful for new experiences and the blessing of enjoying life! I don’t take any of it for granted…. #Grateful

Representation Matters

Representation Matters

Representation matters and that’s why it is so important to other women and young girls that they see women like me walking in my gifts! It’s important that young black and brown girls see another brown girl like me achieving and fulfilling my dreams! To all you ladies out here doing your thing and inspiring others, keep doing it! Never dim your light to make others comfortable with your own version of “shine”! There are young ladies trying to find themselves in this world and they are looking up to us. Our confidence makes a difference. Our elegance makes a difference. Our intelligence makes a difference. Our kindness toward others makes a difference. #RepresentationMatters
