Sick of being sick?

I am going to share with you the first place to start, and this is more powerful then most realize...

  Balance Out the Colon

The specialized cells of the colon and bacteria exist in a fragile balance that can easily be overthrown by food, stress, chemicals in the environment, and overgrowth of yeast. If digestion and colon function is not working well, the body operates in a condition known as auto-intoxication.

Meaning the body is working vigorously to rid yourself of toxins.

When your colon cannot keep up then the toxins are getting recycled, rather than expelled. A constipated colon may be at the foundation of ailments from A to Z that has to do with your body. Here is an analogy to think about: If you had a plugged up toilet would you leave it?

Of course, not, it would stink!

That is what we do with our bodies when we are constipated. It is essential to maintain proper colon function. I cannot stress this enough; this is the number one place to work on first! You will find that affects your body from head-to-toe, young and old, it truly does not matter. No matter how small or big the health concern is; achy foot, cold, headache or incurable disease, the first place to begin is the colon. Get to POOPING and you tell me your results!

I would like to share this testimony with you.


An unexpected result!! My son is twelve years old, affected by a seizure disorder and has autism. I have never been able to get him toilet trained, even with the help of several professional behaviorists. Because of these issues, my son is on many prescription drugs that can't be good for him long term. He also has always suffered with gut issues and has never had a normal bowel movement. [He has undergone] two different professional events of having to clean his colon out with painful and emotional trauma for him and myself.

Out of pure frustration I was telling my good friend, Gina, about the ordeals and she suggested that I should try her PowerPoop to help him establish more normal looking bowels and regular movements. After five weeks on the product I got much more than I had bargained for from my son, Slader. After encouraging him for the millionth time to go poop on the toilet, this time for the very first time, Slader suddenly started walking by himself to the bathroom and I found him sitting on the toilet, having had a bowel movement!! Much to my feeling of having my own little "miracle" he has also never missed the toilet since and it has been six months for him taking the product.
His behavior has also drastically improved at school as well with no clear apparent reason other than starting the product from Gina. (He cannot speak expressively) . He seems overall a more content, happier, and healthier looking boy. I am so happy to tell my story about it.
I am convinced, along with other people, about the healing effects of Gina's PowerPoop, on Slader's colon and maybe giving him the answer to an undiagnosed issue of sensory awareness with his gut!? I am very excited to continue on the venture of giving my son more of Gina's products for hopefully more continued healing to help my son.

YEAST Confused? No more...


YEAST Confused? No more...

Brewers yeast and Nutritional yeast the difference- they are usually grown on 2 different sources.

Brewers yeast is made more with grains and Nutritional yeast made with molasses, that is why the Nutritional is much better tasting. Both of those yeast are deactivated so you don't have to worry about them feeding your body more yeast.

Unlike, bakers yeast is active and it will flourish your body with more yeast, it will feed the problem.

 Nutritional yeast is more popular because it taste much better. One more thing Brewers and Nutritional Yeast has the same nutritional value of all the B vitamins straight across the board.

Why it is so common for many to take nutritional yeast #1 taste better, #2 if there not getting enough source of it from a mixture of foods from meats, grains and produce. Nutritional yeast is a all in one for those B's straight across the board.
Have a Happy and Healthy Day,

Natural Cures for the Common Cold and Flu? You Bet!

Natural Cures for the Common Cold and Flu? You Bet!

Monday, November 2nd, 2009

COUNCIL BLUFFS, IOWA  – According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), roughly one billion cases of the common cold are contracted each year in America, in addition to tens of millions of cases of the flu. Rather than head off to the family doctor and shell out money on medical bills and deductibles, many people will be searching for natural ways to help rid themselves of the viruses on their own. And the good news is that those ways do exist and have a good track record of working to ease and help eliminate the symptoms of both illnesses.
“Many people are turning to alternative therapies, especially when they get a cold or the flu,” says Gina Kopera, author of the book “Cure Yourself Naturally: What To Do When Your Doctor Cannot Heal You.” She is also a certified master herbalist and owner of Gina’s Corner Healing Herbs and Supplements ( “And there is no reason why they should not. There are many potent herbs and other natural routes to wellness that are faster and lasting.”
For those looking to fight off the common cold and influenza this year, natural solutions are around. The NIH reports that Echinacea, Vitamin C and Zinc are natural options to start with. Echinacea is helpful in boosting the immune system and combating both colds and the flu, as well as sore throats. Additional powerful ways you can help address these illnesses include:
·        Number one is to get the colon moving, that is the first area to shut down anytime someone gets sick whether it be the a cold to a serious diseases.
·        Cayenne is an excellent herb to speed up healing, it creates circulation. When an area is ill there is a lack of circulation. Very high in Vitamin C, too. A drop of cayenne tincture on the tonsils will take the pain away and reduce fever immediately. Just repeat as necessary.
·        Eat cloves of fresh garlic minimum 3 times a day. Garlic is anti everything: antibiotic, antifungal, anticancer, antibacterial, and antiseptic.
·        Hydrotherapy- There is much power in this treatment; do not sell this short. Alternate hot and cold water in your shower; if you have access to a sauna, then it will be extremely beneficial, as well. Do this daily to promote more circulation.
·        Get plenty of rest when you are not feeling well. Many people make matters worse by continuing to push forward with their daily plans, rather than giving their body time to rest and recuperate.
·        Drink hot fluids, such as peppermint tea, which is a great treatment for chills and fevers, and symptoms of cold and flu. Peppermint possesses strong astringent and decongestant actions, which can help in relieving stuffiness, catarrh and it is soothing to aching muscles.
·        Sweat baths with stimulating herbs, such as cayenne, ginger and mustard will help to create circulation, pull out toxins and help open up your breathing passages.
·        If you are congested, prop your head up higher than usual when you go to bed. This will make breathing easier and will help you feel somewhat better.
·        Drink a gallon of distilled water each day, this will grab and flush out inorganic minerals and salt
“The first thing people do when they get a cold or the flu is either reach for over-the-counter medications or call the doctor,” adds Kopera. “This is not necessarily going to get you on the fast track to feeling better plus causes many other health problems down the line. You are better off addressing the symptoms yourself and relying on natural solutions.”

100 Day Challenge

We can all use a jump start so I thought I would share this with you daily for the next 100 days with permission given from Ryan Blair.
I have been taking this daily challenge by Ryan Blair, it is awesome program he has put together. It is similar to The Secret but it also give the execution of what to do each day that one can apply to life whether your seeking better health, better business, more endurance (you get the picture).
Apply to everything!
I receive daily with his program a link to go to, that has a power point video with him talking. Each day it gives me ambition to push a little harder on what I am trying to accomplish. Just when I weaken and think I cant go on, then here comes his next email and it brings me right back up to where I need to be with, another goal.
Each day, I am making another move in the right direction and not wimping out!

The Introduction email is quite lengthy, don't worry the rest are much shorter. Each day I am going to present you with the challenge of the day permission given by Ryan Blair at http://www.startfastfinishstrong. com/

Welcome to The 100 Day Challenge

Congratulations on your decision to participate in the 100 Day Challenge where our mission is to inspire, promote, and celebrate excellence.

You make hundreds of decisions every day. Some matter more than others. But joining the 100 Day Challenge is one of the most important decisions you will ever make in terms of your life’s success.

You are not alone. The 100 Day Challenge is a global community of like-minded people dedicated to a common purpose–creating lives of excellence.

I’d like you to look at the 100 Day Challenge as a global Circle of Excellence, and in the following pages my aim is to introduce you to the challenge, explain the importance of committing your life to excellence, and to set the stage for the great adventure you are about to undertake.


The pursuit of excellence is not only politically correct, it’s also highly profitable.

Excellence is a form of currency and a commitment to excellence can help you capture true wealth and realize the inherent value of your potential, while a lack of commitment devalues potential, credibility, and reputation.

Each of us must determine the specific achievements we must accomplish in order to deem our own life “excellent.”

Your responsibilities in doing this include choosing a career path, deciding what to and what not to believe in, what to learn and apply in life, and what actions to take.

You can help yourself with these responsibilities by consistently asking one simple question: How are your thoughts and actions reflective of a life committed to excellence?

To ensure maximum value from the 100 Day Challenge, you must commit not only to your own personal advancement, but to inspire, promote, and celebrate excellence with everyone inside this circle of excellence.

The following plan will show you how to start on your path.


Excellence is a quality, a standard, and the expected norm of our community which is best represented by the words Alpha to Omega. From beginning to end, first to last, and from start to finish–excellence always!

Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. In our world it has come to signify a beginning, the first step on the path to a goal. Alpha may be a plan, an action, or intention, but without it, one can never reach any goal.

Omega is the twenty-fourth and last letter of the Greek alphabet. Reaching it means you have gone through all the steps and reached your goal. You have accomplished what you set out to do, and demonstrated excellence throughout the journey.

But in the Circle of Excellence, omega does not mean the end. The reaching of one goal, frees you to set another, much more challenging goal.

So, while omega marks an accomplishment, it is the link between accomplishing one thing, and setting a new challenge. It is the link that completes and expands the circle of ever-increasing success and excellence.


Besides plans and goals, we have other circles in our lives. We all belong to circles of people: some we don’t choose, some we do.

Our families, our neighbors, our schoolmates, and the people we work with are circles not of our choosing.

Our friends, our loved ones, our trusted colleagues, and our dependable advisors comprise people we have chosen to be in our lives.

Both types of circles always exist, but we can expand and contract them as our needs and each circle’s contribution toward meeting our goals changes.

You have chosen to join the 100 Day Challenge and become part of a global Circle of Excellence because it is a community of people who all are dedicated to living a life of excellence.


“What is “excellence?” Think of it as the process of continually growing and improving yourself and your life. Excellence entails achievement and accomplishing goals that can be measured by constantly asking the question, “Is what I’m doing truly reflective of a life committed to excellence?”

Your greatest responsibility in seeking excellence is to define what this means precisely in your life, then to choose the best course of action to make it happen.

Excellence is not a relative term; it is the standard by which you must judge what you do. You will quickly discover that committing yourself to a life of excellence cannot be accomplished haphazardly.

Excellence never occurs by accident. It always comes as the result of quality thinking and purposeful execution.

To become the person you were meant to be, everything you do must be done with the single purpose of achieving excellence. You must do it with the unshakeable belief and understanding that excellence counts.

You must live and die in the spirit of quality and excellence. The measurement of your “best” begins and ends with the marks of excellence-nothing less.

Why should you actively participate in this Circle of Excellence?

Because a circle is infinite and repeating the three steps in the circle – to inspire, promote, and celebrate excellence – it will lead you to ever-higher accomplishments.

* Inspire. Your personal goal, and that of the 100 Day Challenge community, is first to Inspire.

By always setting the highest standards for each of your goals, you will inspire others to believe in you. You will also be a beacon that shows those around you that striving for excellence in all of their endeavors is a noble ideal.

* Promote. The second arc in the Circle of Excellence is to Promote the goal of excellence – for yourself and for those around you.

No matter how high your standards, or how often you meet those standards, you are not living a life of excellence if you do not bring others along with you. You must actively advocate for the practice of virtue, dedication, reason, and integrity in the pursuit of excellence.

* Celebrate. The final arc that completes the circle is to Celebrate excellence.

You can inspire others and promote excellence only if others see what having high standards can bring to their lives. And why should you care if other people strive for excellence? Will they not become your competitors? No! They will become your inspiration.

Some people perpetually create their own dissatisfaction by consistently slipping into mediocrity. This can easily be fixed, right now by simply deciding to quit doing less than excellent work. What a profound idea!

Mediocrity is a choice; it’s not always made consciously, but it is still a choice.

You commit career malpractice every time you do things in a mediocre manner; every time you show up late; every time you are unprepared. There is no inherent value in mediocrity, there is no reason for people to stop and pay attention to you or your work.

Choose never to compromise your talent, quality, and high standards, and you will never choose mediocrity.

Being world-class has nothing to do with size, education, or bloodline; it has everything to do with decision, commitment, action, and persistence.

Excellence is a destination for anyone who appreciates, respects, and demonstrates hard work and good judgment.

But excellence is not something that you attain, and then put in a trophy case. It is a habit–a momentary happening–a crossroad where the body, mind, and spirit all work together.

Excellence requires that a price be paid; whatever you are willing to pay in sweat to find it and keep it in good working order.

Those who have legitimately reached the summit of their careers, relationships, gamesmanship, have worked harder and longer; studied and planned more assiduously; practiced more self-denial; and overcome more difficulties than those who have not risen as far.

You can become excellent in a second-beginning right now. Start by visualizing yourself as the best teacher, artist, manager, coach, or parent that you aspire to become-and start acting the part.

We all have a range of career choices and opportunities, but we expand this range and quality of our choices when we practice excellence.

Adversely, we blackball ourselves from future opportunities when we do mediocre work. Therefore, attempt to make every opportunity one of importance, because every opportunity counts.

What is considered excellent today will become the minimum cost of admission tomorrow. You’re only as good as your last performance. The bar is constantly being raised, and if you don’t produce excellent results consistently, someone else will.

There is absolutely no grace period for mediocrity, and you must have a zero tolerance policy for it. People expect the best and if they can’t get it from you, they’ll find it elsewhere.

The reality of life is that most people are not hard acts to follow, and that’s exactly why a commitment to excellence is the ultimate competitive advantage.

Excellence is a guilty pleasure, as it’s respected, admired, and serves as the triumphant accomplishment of those unwilling to accept anything less than your absolute best.

Excellence is achieved via qualitative, not quantitative, shifts in developing skills. So by participating in the Circle of Excellence you have chosen to become part of a qualitatively different world, where excellence is expected and practiced by each person within the circle.


The following are the seven guiding principles of the 100 Day Challenge. They serve as the building blocks in starting and sustaining the construction of your ideal future.

I. You must always live a virtuous life. It is not enough to just live; you must live with nobility and honor.

II. You must always act to inspire, promote, and celebrate excellence in yourself and in others.

III. You must always choose your actions based on good reasons and good reasoning, not of fear, self-interest, or other short-term considerations that compromise long-term opportunities.

IV. You must always seek out the truth and live with it, even if that truth is unpopular or uncomfortable.

V. You must always rely on principles which stand the test of time and changes of circumstances. The conclusions you draw from them must be ones you which you can be constantly faithful.

VI. You must always do the right thing and never do wrong willingly, even when others have wronged you.

VII. You must always keep your promises and honor your commitments, provided that they are just.

By mastering one principle, one day at a time, you will build a stairway to higher and higher attainment. Your stairway will be strong because you have concentrated on one thing at a time.

Let’s Get Started

Have a Happy and Healthy Day,

Gina Kopera M.H.
