Be On Your Way To Wellness

I’m offering a special opportunity to be coached absolutely free.  I opened up my calendar for a limited time so I can personally answer any of your questions about wellness and so much more.  This special invitation expires this Friday and only a few spots remain.

Even if you’re not facing any health concerns, this shouldn’t stop you from taking advantage of this amazing chance to learn about preventative care in a unique and fascinating way. Many people associate wellness with diet and exercise only.  They don’t take into consideration the other aspects that are necessary for optimum health such as the mind and environment.

The truth is, we are responsible for our own well-being and understanding
what that really means is critical to living a vibrant healthy life.

By registering you will also learn about the 3 Lessons to Remember when faced with a health crisis.  As an additional gift you will also receive my latest workbook that accompanies my book Organically Yours.

Knowledge is key.  Let me help you unlock the mystery to reaching optimum health.

3 Important Lessons To Remember

Have you ever been totally caught off guard by something that would change your life forever? It happened to me…

In my book, Organically Yours; Open Yourself to a Vibrant Healthy Life I explain how the night before I was supposed to leave for a mini-getaway (I was so looking forward to escaping the winter elements and soaking up some sunshine and vitamin D) my body was getting ready to surprise me in a way that would redirect my life. I had no idea that the morning would greet me with its own agenda and re-route my plans.

No one likes to be caught off guard, especially when faced with a health crisis. After the initial shock of hearing a life threatening diagnosis, confusion and worry usually set in. You begin to ask yourself questions such as:

How Did This Happen To Me?
What Am I Going To Do From Here?
Is This Diagnosis Accurate?
Should I Get Another Opinion?
Will I be okay?

The good news is that these questions can lead a person to a higher understanding when properly guided.

I address these questions and so much more in my book. I also walk you through my comprehensive approach to wellness for the body, mind and living space. But there’s something I didn’t tell you and that’s the 3 Important Lessons I learned that everyone needs to remember when faced with a health crisis.


These very important lessons can radically change the outcome of your situation. I believe this to be true because it made a huge difference for me. It’s not a secret, life can be difficult, and there will be challenges at times. However, there are things that we can do to eliminate a lot of the unnecessary struggles that so many of us experience.

These 3 Important Lessons will help you eliminate a lot of your worry, confusion and overwhelm. You will be able to prioritize what’s really important so you can focus your attention on taking care of yourself – first and foremost.

Because I believe behind every question is the answer, (and I know you have many questions you would like answered), I would like to extend an invitation to you. This is a personal offering that, well quite honestly, I feel compelled to make because I want you to be guided properly and be informed with information that can drastically make a difference in your life.

For 7 days, I am opening up my schedule to a limited amount of people who would like a private coaching session with me – absolutely FREE. There’s a short window of opportunity to be coached personally with me due to  my book tour, so act fast to secure your spot.  As an added bonus for responding quickly, the first 7 people who register you will receive a copy of  Organically Yours with the workbook!

Take a look at what people are saying about Organically Yours on Amazon with a 5 Star Rating:

A Must Read: Patricia’s wise words are so inspiring in “Organically Yours!” She uses real, personal experiences to demonstrate just how beneficial living a healthy lifestyle is. She has not only used wellness as way to treat the symptoms of her illness, but as a preventative measure as well and that is where the future is headed!

Whether you lead a healthy lifestyle already or struggle like me, the ideas presented in this book are really life changing! ~ Jennifer H

Do Yourself A Favor, Get The Book: I wasn’t sure what to expect, at first I thought it would be about eating organic foods. I was pleasantly surprised that Patricia’s emphasis was on taking a holistic approach to wellness. She addresses not only a healthy diet for your body, but she shows you how to help your mind stay focused and clear in a time of a crisis and why it’s important to live in an organized, living space to reduce stress. I must say, I am impressed and highly recommend this book. ~ Jackie C

Vices or Virtues: Can dark chocolate, red wine, or coffee really help your brain?

One Morning, I was drinking my daily green veggie smoothie and reading a few headlines when a story boasted that eating dark chocolate could keep your brain sharp. I had come across dozens of articles stating that indulgent foods, like dark chocolate, red wine and coffee, could boost brain function and as a lover of all these things, I was conflicted after switching to a plant-based diet. This article brought all those feelings back to the surface.

I have always been skeptical about trendy type articles, but this hit home for me. Experiencing a health crisis of my own and having both parents suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, I was doing everything possible to ensure the safety of my brain’s health. So reading that the very things I love, but gave up, were actually considered healthy for your brain, confused me.

I immediately recalled my fondest childhood memories. My love for dark chocolate started as a child when I would have bonding moments with my mom over chocolate. Her and I knew there was something special about the way a delicious piece of rich chocolate could melt your cares away.

My mom and I would always snuggle up on a Friday evening and watch a movie in our black velvet lounge chair when Dad would go out bowling with his friends. Mom would put out dark chocolate candies and treats on a dish for us to share. I felt very close to my mom during those times because it was something that we both shared and enjoyed. Although this was our “little secret” she shared this with the Easter Bunny and Santa to ensure my Christmas stocking and Easter basket was always well stocked.

And back in the day, as a New Jersey child of the sixty’s, Helen Elliott was a well known confectionery store that had the most scrumptious dark chocolate marshmallows. Fortunately for me, this heavenly shop was located right outside my bus stop. As a special treat, my mom would give me twenty five cents a week to buy one for my commute home from school. I recall the soothing effects it had on my long walk home afterward, that made it all worth it.

As the years matured, my love for dark chocolate mixed well with red wine and coffee. In my opinion, the combination was pure bliss. I never viewed the rich confectionery and palatable drinks to be harmful for my brain. What I knew for the most part, was the importance of making sure I enjoyed my “love” in moderation. I’m not going to lie and say I didn’t partake in the occasional over-indulgence – sure I did – but at a cost. Too much dark chocolate upset my stomach, too much red wine gave me a hang-over, and too much coffee would give me anxiety.

When I made the decision to switch to a plant-based diet and write my book “Organically Yours; Open Yourself to a Vibrant Healthy Life Through Clean Living,” I wasn’t concerned with missing the chocolate, wine, and coffee, the indulgent treats I loved. I was satisfied with my decision because I experienced something incredible. The sensation I had from a deep rich piece of chocolate, a robust cup of coffee or an intoxicating red glass of wine, I could also achieve with dark, leafy greens and fresh, ripe fruits. And not only did they soothe me but they nourished me at the same time. With each portion, I could feel the health effects it was having on my body.

The change was gradual. Symptoms began to go away one by one until one day I said, “Wow! I feel better!” I stuck to this plant-based diet because I wanted to get really healthy. I wanted to have that one glass of wine, piece of dark chocolate, and cup of coffee without worrying about the resulting health problems from doing so. Not to mention, following this diet makes it all worth it because I learned what it really meant to have discipline and understand the definition of moderation. Before I knew it, I had developed an insatiable appetite for healthy food.

I recently read AARP’s In The News article, stating that a new study from the Global Council on Brain Health (GCBH) has found no evidence of dark chocolate, red wine or caffeine –rich drinks help your brain stay sharp. GCBH is an Independent collaborative sponsored by AARP and Age UK, a British charity.

The study reported that “If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation and only with meals.” The previous notion that there is beneficial effects from drinking wine, sobered me right up as the findings stated that “It is unclear if there is any beneficial level of consumption for brain health.” The report also found little support for the idea that drinking coffee was a long-term positive for your brain.

“Some research has been published about the protective benefits of the antioxidants in tea and coffee,” the report notes. “Short-term effects of caffeine consumption have been shown to increase alertness…but there is no consensus on whether the impact of tea and coffee is clearly beneficial or harmful for brain health.”

But what about the dark chocolate? Well, while there is some research that suggests high consumption of cocoa flavanols can cut memory loss, “the amount of chocolate you would need to eat to positively impact the brain could be canceled out by the number of calories and sugar you consume.”

So what did the study conclude? “A plant-based diet rich in green leafy vegetables and berries contribute to better brain health, while a diet high in red meat, saturated fats, sugar and salt can harm your brain health.”

With increasing evidence continually proving that vegetables, fruits, nuts and a healthy dose of omega-3 promotes wellness, I for one cannot entirely rule out my divine vices. Dark chocolate, wine and coffee at one time made up a good part of who I am. Although these studies coincide with my own personal research, and undoubtedly made me a believer in the benefits, there will be times when I engage. I think the key here is all about moderation no matter what popular studies challenge us.

After skimming through the article stating that dark chocolate could keep your brain sharp, I exited it out and finished my smoothie. While it would be nice if that headline were true, nothing can compare to a plant based diet that fills you and nourishes your body. I went to make myself a snack for later in the day, hummus with carrots and celery, with a smile on my face knowing that my body would thank me for what I was putting in it. As I placed it in the fridge for later, I glanced at the bottle of red wine sitting on the counter knowing that my special treat would be well deserved.


It’s mid January – have you resolved to reduce/eliminate the clutter in your life? If so, congratulations! If not, what is holding you back from doing so?

With the month halfway completed, February is right around the corner and before too long we will be seeing signs of spring. Do you want to go into another season with clutter hanging around?

Now I’m asking you these questions not to get you worried or anxious, but to help you see that procrastination can be your enemy, not your friend. The longer you wait the more difficult it becomes. This is true with many things, not just clutter. And by the way, just to be clear, I am referring to all types of clutter that can affect your body, mind and environment.

I would love to set up an initial conversation to discuss how I might be able to help you sort it all out. Feel free to reply with your challenges, struggles, and anything else you care to share. I will review your comments and be in touch shortly.

Remember, don’t wait…because time waits for no one.
