What if every day you could elevate your consciousness, and create miracles in your life? Beating cancer can seem like a miracle. But it IS possible for everyone, and Hal Elrod is proof of this.

 

When Hal was 20, he had a car crash and died (you read that right). He was clinically dead for 6-minutes. When he woke up from a 6-day coma, he found out he had 11 broken bones, brain damage and, according to the doctors, was never going to walk again. But he decided right then and there to maintain the faith that he was going to walk, and that he was going to do everything in his power to make it happen. Within 3 weeks of the car crash, he was taking his first steps. That marked the beginning of his life’s work. But it wasn’t an easy ride.

 

In 2007, Hal was in a tough spot. He’d lost half his clients, lost his house, was broke and severely depressed. So he started looking into what the world’s most successful people do, and designed a morning ritual of self-improvement. Within 2 months, he’d doubled his income, completed an ultra-marathon, overcome depression and totally changed his life. To his wife, he said “It feels like a miracle.” That’s how The Miracle Morning was born.

 

You might feel that you’re not a morning person – most of us feel the same! But how you begin your day will either put you in a sub-optimal physical, mental and emotional state, or an optimal one. Start your day at your best, and you can give your best in everything you do. This will reflect in every aspect of your life.

 

But how? You need simple, daily strategies that you can ease into. In The Miracle Morning e-book, Hal breaks down exactly what you need to do to begin uplifting your mornings – and uplifting your life.

 

But we’ve only told the beginning of the story.

 

 

Just 2 years ago, Hal was diagnosed with acute lymphotoxin leukemia – a rare cancer with a 30% survival rate. He also had a collapsed lung, his kidneys were failing, and his heart was surrounded with fluid. He was told he had a 70%-90% chance of dying within a few months. Going without chemo was not an option – without it, he would die within a week. After doing his research, Hal decided to have the treatment, while at the same time implementing every holistic practice he could to counter the negative effects.

 

And it worked! The cancer went into remission.

 

Hal’s cancer-healing process?

  • No sugar
  • More greens
  • Lots of supplements (food-based)
  • Acupuncture
  • Ozone sauna
  • Beamer mat
  • Coffee enemas
  • Lymphatic massage
  • Reading other people’s healing stories (**check the links section for ideas**)

 

At the core of all these individual methods, however, is mindset. You need to believe that you can beat cancer:

  • Unwavering faith – Faith is a loaded word these days, but faith in yourself and your limitless potential is a whole other story. Faith moves your goals from possible to probable.
  • Extraordinary effort – Be committed to give it everything you have, and be ready to keep going. That’s how you go from probable to inevitable.

 

Hal’s new book, The Miracle Equation: The Two Decision That Move Your Biggest Goals from Possible to Probably to Inevitable, is your process for goal achievement. It will help you step out of your comfort zone to pursue your biggest goals and dreams. Use it in conjunction with The Miracle Morning and you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 259:

  • How to turn your thinking around to appreciate life’s tragedies
  • Do cancer treatments kill cancer patients?
  • What chemo really is
  • How to heal your body from chemo
  • Redefining miracles and what that means for you
  • How to use faith and effort to achieve anything you want
  • Hal’s miracle mantra
  • How Hal has helped over a million people transform their mornings (and their lives!)

Knockout: Interviews with doctors who are curing cancer

ChrisBeatCancer.com

When someone is diagnosed with cancer, it feels like the end of the world. But it doesn’t have to be. Our guests didn’t just overcome cancer naturally, they used it as a platform for positive change! There’s real power in the voice of a cancer survivor (and thrive-r)!

 

Amanda Deming – Healing cervical cancer – Episode 8

Did you know that cervical cancer killed nearly 4,000 women last year? It’s the second most common cancer among women. Conventional treatments, like surgery, chemo and radiation, are extremely poisonous and often lead to infertility. When Amanda was diagnosed with cervical cancer, she was determined not to go down that road. Instead, she chose a raw vegan diet, meditation, and yoga. She’s now cancer-free.

 

Jeff Witzeman – Cancer can be killed – Episode 190

When Jeff’s wife was diagnosed with an aggressive form of bladder cancer, she was told her life would change forever (surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, a life without an essential organ). Instead of taking the doctor’s word for it, they traveled to Germany to treat the cancer at a spa. Thanks to juicing, a plant-based diet, hyperthermia (targeted heat therapy), oxygen therapy, intravenous vitamins, and colonics, she was completely cancer-free in just one month!  

 

 

Tracey Edmonds – The truth about healing cancer – Episode 226

Just like Alli, Tracey lost both her parents to preventable diseases: her mom died from cancer and her dad from a heart attack. This made her determined to be a pillar of health and to spread the message through as many media outlets as possible. She launched the wellness website Alright Now to give people the tools they need to live their healthiest life – from nutrition and fitness to relationships and parenting. We think she rocks!

 

Jill Tomback – Beating breast cancer – Episodes 26, 27 and 28

Jill and I were room-mates when she was first diagnosed with breast cancer (at just 25 years old). She endured four years of conventional treatment, including chemo and surgery. But since then, she’s taken the holistic route: she’s a plant-powered Pilates superstar, an avid juicer and a big fan of the Gerson therapy. As of this year, she’s celebrating 9 years cancer-free.

Cancer Can Be Killed

AlrightNow.com

Cancer. It’s the kind of diagnosis no one wants to hear. And yet, cancer doesn’t have to be a death sentence. For our guests, cancer was an opportunity to build up their health from the inside out. As a result, they each became a force for positive change.

 

Evita Ramparte – Healing ovarian cancer – Episode 57

When she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Evita made the brave decision not to have surgery, radiation or chemotherapy – against her doctor’s wishes. She knew that toxic food and toxic thinking had caused her cancer, and she was determined to heal herself. Thanks to detoxing, fasting, and a lot of inner work, she did exactly that. In just 4 months, her tumor had disappeared, she lost 50 pounds, and felt better than ever before.

 

Chris Wark – Beating colon cancer – Episode 236

At just 26, Chris was told he had stage 3 cancer – it started as a tumor the size of a golf ball in his colon, and spread to his lymph nodes. He was given one option: chemotherapy. But poisoning himself back to health didn’t make sense to Chris. Just like Evita, he realized he’d created his cancer through his diet choices. So he switched from a standard American diet to a 100% vegan, 100% raw diet. The cancer went away for good. Now, he teaches others how to do the same.

 

 

Janette Murray-Wakelin – Overcoming breast cancer – Episode 52

Janette was given just six months to live when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. So she decided to use that time to change her life completely. Instead of accepting the chemo, she took the holistic approach: she went 100% raw vegan, oxygenated her blood, and started loving herself. After all, how can you heal yourself unless you love yourself first? Within 6 months, Janette was cancer-free. And as if that wasn’t amazing enough, she then ran a marathon, every day, for 366 consecutive days. We think she’s pretty incredible!

 

Jolen Philbrook – Healing breast cancer and kidney cancer – Episode 193

When it comes to surviving, Jolen’s an expert! She overcame cancer twice – first a rare type of breast cancer, then kidney cancer. At the same time, she was fighting a custody battle with no income. Most people would crumble under that kind of pressure, but Jolen pulled through. How? It all comes down to mindset. And power shoes (of course).

In today’s episode, Dr. Roy answers Food Heals Nation’s questions on health, healing, and cancer.

 

Dr. Roy specializes in cancer prevention and reversal. But he doesn’t do it in the traditional way. He combines his background as a Buddhist, western medical training, in-depth research into alternative healing, mental health therapies and meditation into the House of Health, a scientifically backed-up system you can use to heal yourself.

 

#1. How do you know if you have physical/emotional/spiritual issues you need to deal with?

Look at your present life. How are things going? If they’re not going well, there’s something you need to look at. In Dr. Roy’s book, Healing Before You’re Cured, you’ll find 10 questions to help you figure out what is going on, and strategies to help you address whatever comes up. You can also tune into Episode 255, where Dr. Roy shares some simple strategies to quickly release negative emotions.

 

#2. How can we deal with chronic stress?

Chronic stress can lead to disease. And we are constantly stressed these days with all the demands we have to deal with – work, social media, expectations. But what is disease? It’s a state of not having ease.

 

We need to get out of chronic stress into a state of ease. But how? Simple. Inhale, tense your body completely, and double exhale. Do it three times. Your body will automatically respond to the physical tensing by relaxing.

 

Here’s another strategy. In your brain, the limbic system deals with fight of flight – when you’re stressed, it sends a signal to your adrenal glands to release epinephrine, which in turn causes a physical reaction. It’s important to get out of that part of your brain, otherwise you carry on the stress response throughout the day, or longer.

 

 

Here’s how you shift to another part of your brain:

 

  • Close your eyes and picture the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen.
  • Inhale that picture into your brain.
  • Exhale.
  • Smell the most beautiful thing you’ve ever smelt.
  • Inhale that smell.
  • Exhale.

 

This exercise connects you to something that is beautiful to you. These memories are in the cortex part of your brain. You cannot focus on two parts of your brain at the same time. By getting into the cortex, you move out of the limbic, and therefore out of that feeling of stress. You shut down the stress response and connect with peace.

 

#3. Where do you start after a cancer diagnosis?

First, don’t choose one or the other. You have both eastern and western methodologies at your disposal. Eastern medicine is over 7000 years old, and deals with the mental, emotional and spiritual side. Western medicine deals with technology and drugs, and has billions of dollars’ worth of research behind it.

 

Dr. Roy’s advice? Do both!

 

Second, stop thinking about death. In life, nobody makes it out alive, cancer or no cancer. No one lives forever. Take death off the plate, and focus instead on how you want this to go.

 

Finally, take ownership. This is your life. Make a decision and get on with it.

 

With these three steps, you’re in a solid place to move forward. Things will start to come to you, depending on what you need to heal on your journey.

 

#4. How can we help people who don’t want to hear about the holistic part of healing?

You can’t treat someone who doesn’t want to be treated. You can’t fix someone. If you want to help, you have to first respect that person’s needs.

 

Instead of telling them what you think is right, ask them what they need or want to know right now. Don’t be afraid to get vulnerable and share how important it is to you. But accept that they might not want your help or your advice. For healing to take place, there has to be free will, that person has to want to heal. Pushing information on them will only build resentment. Accept where they are, lead by example and stay hopeful – because sometimes people change their minds.

 

If you want to know more, pick up Dr. Roy’s new book Healing Before You’re Cured, which is packed with simple evidence-based techniques you can use to heal the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual areas of your life. You can also sign up to Dr. Roy’s free email course by texting HEAL to 345345 or going to www.drvmd.com.

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 256:

  • How to instantly go from stressed to calm
  • One practice to re-wire your brain out of fight or flight
  • Why it’s better to keep some things to yourself
  • The beauty of “and”
  • Where to start if you get diagnosed with cancer
  • How to blend east and west for the best healing potential
  • How to help people heal when they don’t want to hear it

Healing before you’re cured

Roy Vongtama Facebook

Roy Vongtama Instagram

Very few guests get us as excited as Dr. Roy Vongtama. He’s doing the kind of work Alli wishes she’d known about when her parents were diagnosed with cancer. But back then, she lived in a small town with no access to green juices, no meditation studios, and no understanding of the emotional component in disease or the power of the body to heal itself.

 

The connection between trauma and cancer is not spiritual la la land. It is scientifically proven. Take ACES, the Adverse Childhood Experience Study. Scientists found that people who had experienced just one emotional trauma were at higher risk of disease (and actually doubled their risk of cancer).

 

And it isn’t just trauma. The way you think and feel everyday can suppress your genes, so the emotions can’t leave your body; it stays trapped within your cells. When you keep resentment, for example (“This shouldn’t have happened”) trapped within you, it eventually turns to anger – then rage. And rage is destructive. Exactly like cancer, it destroys everything in its path, including its own home (your body).

 

Do you have rage trapped in your body? Dr. Roy offers 3 questions to help you figure that out:

  • How is your relationship with your parents?
  • How are your current relationships?
  • Have you ever experienced abuse?

 

Go to www.MDRoy.com to get a full list of questions. If you fit the criteria, you may need to address the issue. Because here’s the thing. To overcome this, you have to own it. You have to express it. You have to accept it. Only THEN can you do something about it.

 

 

Who is Dr. Roy? He grew up as the son of two doctors, and was trained in western medicine. He soon noticed that many of his cancer patients were struggling with unexpressed emotions and past trauma. This spurred him on to go deeper into the research and discover what causes cancer in the first place, and what we can do to heal ourselves. Diet is important, but that’s just one small part of it. Health is physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. That means healing needs to involve all those aspects. His book Healing Before You’re Cured is the result of his research: evidence-based strategies to help you heal all parts of your life.

 

Try getting rid of your trapped emotions by following Dr. Roy’s Burn Page practice (similar to Alli’s Write and Burn process).

  1. Go to a quiet room (no phone).
  2. Write whatever comes to mind, for 30 minutes. Get everything out of your system so that it also gets out of your body. Feel like something is “too stupid” to write? Just keep going and deeper stuff will come to the surface.
  3. Tear up the pages.
  4. Experience the transformative power as you get rid of trapped negativity and reconnecting with peace. It might be painful to begin with, but change happens when the pain happens. You have to feel these emotions in order to heal them.

 

SPECIAL OFFER FOR FOOD HEALS NATION

Text “HEAL” to 345345 and Dr. Roy will send you everything you need to discover how healthy you are, what’s missing, and what you can do to heal. You can also sign up to his free email course by going to royvmd.com.

 

Make sure you tune in for Part Two, because Dr. Roy will be answering your questions and sharing everything you need to know about how to heal yourself.  

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 255:

  • The link between medication and cancer
  • Can disease be caused by emotions?
  • Denial and its link to cancer

Part 2 of our Overcoming Anxiety Series welcomes three amazing people who have a lot of expertise to share about this topic. And keep reading…because all three guests have special gifts to offer Food Heals Nation!

 

Whitney Lauritsen does a lot of work in the wellness world. Her brand EcoVeganGal helps people go plant-based and be more eco-conscious. She also runs the wellness coaching business Wellevatr with Jason Wrobel.

 

Whitney struggled with depression throughout college. For her, overcoming anxiety and depression is an ongoing process. Whenever she feels those emotions, she looks for the opportunity to go within. It’s about slowing down and trying to identify the source of those feelings. Even if you don’t know their root, just giving yourself some space can help lift you out of a sad mood.

 

Melissa Glazewski is a private plant-based chef, helping people to eat healthier and thrive. She’s the founder of ForkinPlants.com. Growing up with alcoholic parents meant Melissa had a lot of anxiety and depression issues. The pharmaceuticals she was prescribed just made her worse. So she quit them and went down the holistic route, using herbal remedies, diet and meditation to improve her mood. The best supplement she’s found is ashwagandha, an adaptogen that helps your body adapt to and deal with stress. We love Four Sigmatic’s instant coffee with added ashwagandha (coffee without the jitters!).

 

 

Whitney & Melissa tips to overcome anxiety and depression:

  • Accept where you are (and it will pass).
  • Shine a light on your light – Ask a friend to say something positive about you, read out positive affirmations, have positive conversations.
  • Surround yourself with your tribe – You are the epitome of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Choose your friends wisely! Call people who are uplifting, who will listen, who light you up. Be conscious about who you reach out to, especially when you’re feeling low.
  • Don’t wallow –  Are you choosing to feel down because it is more comfortable and familiar? Be committed to feeling better. You can empower yourself and decide you are going to take your mental health into your own hands. When you do that, anything you do to lift your mood will be doubly powerful, and you will begin to see results fast.
  • Eat clean – Your gut is your second brain. If it’s not right, how can you expect your brain to function properly? If you’re feeling anxious or depressed, it could be diet related.
  • Meditate (every day) –  This can be a tough one, especially if you have a naturally active mind. That’s where Alli’s Write & Burn process can really help.

 

How to overcome anxiety with write & burn:

  1. Make sure you’re alone.
  2. Grab some loose-leaf paper.
  3. Write down “I am angry/sad/depressed because ….” Pour everything out onto that page. It could be that person who cut you up on the road, or something deeper. Do this to bring out all the feelings – freeing your body from those stuck emotions in the process.
  4. Once you’re done, it’s time to burn the pages (or rip them up) and get rid of that energy.
  5. Feel the emotional release. This is the perfect time to meditate because your mind will be clear.

 

Have you inherited your anxiety from your ancestors?

We all carry energy from our ancestors. It can be great energy, but it can also energy that holds us back. Lisa Thomas is a DNA energy healer. She helps clients clear inherited patterns and release the anxiety tags that keep them from thriving. Lisa had a lot of anxiety and depression because she didn’t own who she was. When we don’t fully accept who we are, it triggers anxiety. Anxiety also shows up when we need to be in control. Check out Episode 215 for Lisa’s story.

 

Lisa’s steps to overcome anxiety and depression:

  • Count to 12 – Say each number, pause and take a breath. The number 12 is a balancing number. It connects you to your heart. This practice allows you to pause enough to get connected to your body.
  • Lay the palm of your hand flat on the top of your head – Close your hand so it pulls a handful of hair. Pulse it so that it lifts the hair at the root. This tells your body to get back into connection with your spirit. For men, use the knuckles of your dominant hand to tap along the top of your head.
  • Heaven and Earth exercise – This practice will bring you back to center. Reach up with your right hand, open and close your hand, and as you pull down your arm, imagine you are pulling Heaven’s energy down through the top of your head. Stop at your heart space. With both arms and with your hands open, scoop up the energy of Mother Earth through the bottom of your feet, all the way up to your heart, where it mixes with Heaven’s energy. Imagine this combined energy is coming up the front of your body, around your head and down your back.

If you want to go deeper and clear inherited anxiety, get in touch with Lisa. Alli works with her and loves it.

Another Way To Beat Anxiety – Sunday Scaries’ CBD Gummies!

Before becoming a CBD entrepreneur, Beau owned a bar with his friend Mike. They were always on the clock, always on the go – it was a high stress lifestyle which, unsurprisingly, created a lot of anxiety. They wanted something to help them deal with it naturally, so they began trying CBD. It worked, but the products were unpleasant to take, impractical or messy. So they decided to create something that made CBD accessible, tasty, and easy to take.

Sunday Scaries was born. Its mission? To make the world a better place one gummy at a time.

NOTE: CBD will not get you high. It contains medicinal compounds that reduce inflammation, nausea, pain and anxiety. CBD is an adaptogenic, which means that it helps the body heal itself. It’s completely safe and non-toxic, something that the World Health Organization has now confirmed. What makes Sunday Scaries even better is that they’re infused with high quality CBD from Colorado, which means added vitamins like D3 and B12 (we love the Vegan AF ones!).

Sunday Scaries

 

Over 40 million Americans are affected by anxiety – that’s around 20% of the population. Whether it’s relationship anxiety, workplace anxiety, social media anxiety or general anxiety, it has the power to zap your quality of life. So, what can we do about it?

 

According to empowerment strategist, fitness expert, author and podcast host JJ Flizanes, we’ve been dealing with it all wrong. Pharmaceuticals are not the solution. The first step to overcoming anxiety is to transform how we think about it.

 

We go through hundreds of emotions every single day. Unless these are properly processed, they remain stuck in the body, eventually creating discomfort, disease, and, you guessed it, anxiety. Anxiety is basically the body’s way of telling you something needs to be addressed. Looking at anxiety the JJ way gives you more tools with which you can address the root cause of the problem. And if you get to the root, you can stop it from happening.

 

JJ’s 3-step anxiety-busting process:

  1. Identify your feelings – go deep. Download JJ’s Feelings and Needs list, look at the 100 words on there and compile a list of how you feel.
  2. Understand what need isn’t being met. Anytime you have a negative emotion, it’s because you have a need that is not being met. Figure out what that is so you can start healing it.
  3. List or come up with strategies to get your needs met, without forcing anyone else to change who they are. It cannot be about anyone else but you. How can you address your needs for yourself? Check out Episode 118 of JJ’s Spirit Purpose & Energy podcast for 3 steps to effective communication.

Check out JJ’s next event in LA on October 11th to 13th. The Manifestation Boot Camp will teach you how to embody the law of attraction on all levels – creative, practical and emotional.

 

CBD – The Anxiety Antidote

Inner work goes a long way to helping you combat anxiety. Another thing you can do? Add anxiety-busting supplements, like CBD, to your routine.

Beau’s tips to overcome anxiety:

  • 5-minute journal in the morning – Write down 3 things you’re grateful for, 3 things that will make the day great, and 2 affirmations for the day.
  • 5-minute journal at night: – 3 things that were amazing today, 3 ways you could have improved the day, and how you can set yourself up for success the next day.
  • Meditate in the morning (and some form of exercise).
  • NO social media or email first thing in the morning.
  • Anxiety can’t exist when you’re grateful. If you start feeling anxious, stop and take a moment to think about the 3 things you’re grateful for.

 

What you’ll learn in Episode 253:

  • Is anxiety a scapegoat for deeper issues?
  • Why you are not powerless against anxiety
  • How emotions get stuck in your body
  • The link between your zodiac sign and how you process emotions
  • A mindset shift that will transform how you deal with anxiety

This special episode comes to you from Puerto Rico Mastermind, where Alli met some amazing womenpreneurs whose businesses are making a positive impact on the world. Want to start a podcast? Need a new level of inspiration? Coming to this event is one of the most impactful things you can do!

 

Now, let’s get to know these three incredible ladies:

 

Gena: Holistic Dentistry

Mercury fillings are implicated in the development of all sorts of diseases, like diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Women exposed to them have a higher risk of having a child with ADHD and neurological issues. Dr. Gena Schultheis used to be a traditional dentist, prescribing mercury fillings. Now, she takes them out and helps people back to health through detoxing, a healthy diet and holistic dentistry.

 

How can you detox from mercury? You have to go beyond diet, because mercury embeds itself in organs and is hard to get rid of. Chelation, saunas, Epsom salts, detoxifying supplements, chlorella and cilantro are all good options – the best thing is to work with a practitioner who will give you a personalized protocol. To find a holistic dentist, check out the Holistic Dental Association, or the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology.

 

Why Gena loves Puerto Rico Mastermind

Learning from one another and working together to turn the world into a collaborative supportive place.

 

Sue: Co-creation as a key to success

Sue Dyer is president of OrgMetrics LLC. When she started working in construction, there was no spirit of collaboration – at her first meeting there was a fist fight in the bathroom! But for the last 40 years, Sue has been changing the culture of construction from combative to collaborative. Because let’s face it, we can achieve much more when we work together. In fact, you can be 40% more successful when you collaborate.

 

Why Sue loves Puerto Rico Mastermind

Co-creation is what you need to level up in every aspect of your life. That’s why masterminds work. When you collaborate and co-create, you’re accessing a collective wisdom that you don’t connect with on your own.

 

 

Dorothy: Your success helps the world

Dorothy Illson helps her clients bust through limiting beliefs about money, increase their income, and maximize their impact. Many of us feel shame about wanting to be successful and make money. But there shouldn’t be shame in that – the more abundance you create in your life, the more leverage you have to make an impact on the world.

 

The desire to make money and to make a positive difference are not opposing ambitions. You need one to achieve the other. If you’re miserable and struggling financially, you don’t have the emotional space or time to go out and make an impact in the world. Dorothy promotes for-purpose businesses, where giving back is built into the business model. This is something consumers are already beginning to demand – they want to buy from a brand that makes the world a better place.

 

We love her podcast Do Well and Do Good.

 

Why Dorothy Loves Puerto Rico Mastermind

Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable and authentic. That’s the most powerful thing you can do.

 

Bonus Travel Tip

Alli’s must-have when traveling is Organifi green juice powder. This was a life-saver in Puerto Rico.

When you travel, you don’t know where the next juice bar will be. Or if there’s a Whole Foods. Or if there will even BE any healthy options. But with jet lag, travel stress, and lack of sleep, you need to give your body as many nutrients as possible to stay well and make the most of your time.

Organifi is a detoxifying blend herbs and vegetables like chlorella, moringa, spirulina, mint, beets, matcha, wheatgrass, ashwagandha, turmeric, coconut water and more. Perfect for jumpstarting your energy… and kicking those wine hangovers to the curb. Food Heals Nation listeners get 20% off their first order with coupon code foodheals.

The End of Alzheimer’s by Dr Bredesen

In part 2 of our Round Table, we say goodbye to Melissa (our amazing PA, check her out at ForkinPlants) and hello to the beautiful and super talented vegan chef Leslie Durso! She joins our panel of plant-based peeps, Whitney Lauritsen, a vegan entrepreneur and coach on a mission to help conscious brands grow, and Erica Mandy, a journalist and founder of theNewsWorthy.

In Part 2, our guests have 9 more incredible travel tips coming your way. They learned the hard way so you don’t have to!

 

Travel tip #8

  • Download What You Need – Make sure you download your podcast episodes (or videos, or ebooks) so you have something to listen to, read or watch while you travel. Alli uses the Overcast App. And if you need to work, download the web pages you need to reference. Your Google drive can be accessed offline so you can work on your documents without needing wifi.

 

Travel tip #9

  • Always Be On Germ Patrol – When you sit on the plane, make sure you wipe the seat, window, and tray table. You really don’t want to pick up germs before you’re on holiday. You can also bring a natural antibacterial spray and essential oils to keep your hands clean.

 

Travel tip #10

  • Water, Always Water – Make sure you stay hydrated while you travel. Whitney uses a LifeStraw – it screws onto any water bottle and will filter your water. Do not drink coffee or tea while you’re travelling; caffeine will just dehydrate you.

 

Travel tip #11

  • Love Your Body And It’ll Love You Back – Take plenty of turmeric and ginger before you travel. Their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties will knock out any germs, help regulate your body and keep it healthy on your travels. Pack some probiotics as well. This will help if you’re going to countries where the food is not what you’re used to eating.

 

Travel tip #12

  • Jet Lag Be Gone! – Change your sleep routine with the Jet Lag Rooster app. It will create a schedule for you to tell you when to go to bed, when to get sunlight, and more, so that you can avoid jet lag. You can also get blue light glasses, which block the light from the plane and help your body adjust to different time zones (Swanwick do stylish ones!). 

 

 

Travel tip #13

Style & Comfort – Always bring a pashmina with you – you can use it as a blanket and a pillow in unexpected places where you really need some rest. It makes the perfect neck support if you wrap it around your water bottle.

 

Travel tip #14

Catch Some In-Flight Shut Eye – With all that time you spend on planes, it’s best not to forget accessories to make the flight more comfortable. Our favorite eye mask is the Dream Sleeper, super comfortable. We also love Sleep Buds – headphones you can sleep with! The fleece ones feel amazing.

 

Travel tip #15

Don’t Leave Your Eating Habits On The Runway – Pack healthy foods for the plane, like nuts, fruit (like oranges or apples – but beware, you’ll have to eat them before you get off the plane because some states have strict restrictions on what fruit can be brought in), cucumber and hummus, little packets of olives, or even vegan cheese and crackers.

You can also tell the airplane your dietary preferences ahead of time.

 

Travel tip #16

Go Anywhere, Way Easier – One of the best hacks if you’re travelling internationally is signing up for Global Entry. You’ll avoid the long lines that way, which really comes in handy when you’ve gotta make that connection.

 

Travel tip #17

Finally, Alli’s must-have travel essential – Organifi!

A big bottle of green juice won’t make it through airport security. But with Organifi green juice powder, you can drink your greens even when you travel. Organifi gives you a healthy helping of detoxifying herbs and vegetables like chlorella, moringa, spirulina, mint, beets, matcha, wheatgrass, ashwagandha, turmeric, coconut water and more – everything your body needs to kickstart your day.

  • She was skydiving in Australia. The moment the parachute opened, she knew something was wrong…
  • She traveled to Portland only to find she couldn’t poop for days…
  • She got scammed the second she stepped off the plane, and nearly didn’t make it out of Mexico….

 

Moral of our stories? Traveling can be loads of fun, but is sure to be full of surprises! After collecting all of our combined wisdom (and crazy stories), here’s your first round of travel tips.

 

 

Travel Tip #1 – Protect Yourself From Scammers

Find out all the details of your trip so you don’t get taken advantage of. Wait for people to introduce themselves, ask them what hotel/car service they work for, and don’t give away your information.

 

Travel Tip #2 – Get Those Vegan Basics

Get a hotel with a fridge (not a mini-fridge!). Even if you don’t have a car, there might be a grocery delivery service like Instacart that can bring you everything you need for a small fee. When Alli was in Philadelphia for Podcast Movement, she got Instacart deliver organic vegan groceries. She stocked the fridge with tomatoes, hummus, avocado, Miyoko’s vegan cheese and grapes and would have people over for cheese and wine!

 

Travel Tip #3 – Take Your Vitamins On Holiday

An easy way to do this is to buy a travel pill dispenser. It’s a little circular travel pill holder that you can store all your various vitamins in a compact way that is great for packing. Vitamins Alli never leaves home without are B12, vitamin C, pro-biotics, melatonin, and oxypowder (which you can only get from the Global Healing Center (don’t forget the discount code is foodheals17).

 

Travel Tip #4 – CBD Should Be A Travel Mate

CBD combats anxiety while traveling, helps with jet lag and is a natural alternative to sleeping pills. Suzy has the best stuff – find it at CBD Fountain. Coupon Code Foodheals for 20% off.

 

Travel Tip #5 – Pack Your Greens

Did you know 92% of Americans have a vitamin deficiency? It’s important to boost your energy, cleanse your body and feel amazing any day, but even more so when you travel. Alli never leaves home without Organifi, the easiest way to eat your greens no matter where you are or what you’re doing.

When you wake up and drink a glass of Organifi Green Juice, you kick-start the body’s processes of daily detoxing, producing natural energy, and managing stress. It’s a great way to start the day with a smart choice.

 

So What Is Organifi? It’s a green juice powder infused with superfoods – Alli’s favorite is coconut and ashwagandha. Simply mix with water and boom!: you’ve got all the nutrients you need to jumpstart your energy, curb that jet lag and power through your day.

 

You can get 20% discount on your first order with the coupon code foodheals.

 

Travel Tip #6 – Choose Drinks Wisely

Whether you’re traveling business or pleasure, you’re probably going to engage in a few cocktails while you’re out of town. So Alli’s best advice is to choose organic biodynamic wines whenever possible. Our friends at Scout & Cellar know what’s up. If you want to sample the best vegan products hassle-free, then reach out to Varietal group – everything they promote is organic, biodynamic and vegan, free of sulfites and added sugar. And it’s female-owned. A great way to support women entrepreneurs.

 

Travel Tip #7 Increase You Vitamin C Dosage

This helps boost your immune system while traveling. It also helps with jet lag. Best of all, there’s no way to overdose on it!
