Feeling physically, emotionally, and spiritually off-kilter? Lost some of the joy of living? Overwhelmed by life? Need to shed some pounds and detoxify your body naturally? Wish you could look and feel years younger than your age and create your very best life? Or are you in need of the perfect person, newsletter, and website to help inspire, empower, and motivate you to take charge of your body, health, and life? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you've come to the right place. And you can reinvigorate your life with my worldwide-popular collection RENEW YOUR LIFE.
It may surprise you to know that March got its name from Mars, the Roman god of war. This is because Mars is red in color and the ancient Romans thought it was made of blood spilled in battles and was related to Mars, their god of war. They considered the month of March to be devoted to Mars.
April comes from the Greek goddess Aphrodite (Latin Aphros), the equivalent of Venus, the Roman goddess of love and beauty. It is also said that it comes from the the Latin word aperire, which means to open. It was named this because this was the month when the flowers start to open.
During the months of March/April, I am sending you all my warmest wishes and thoughts to help you create and live your best days ever. At any moment, and often when you least expect it, your life can miraculously change. You must keep walking in the direction of your dreams and never give up. You are special! There is nobody on planet earth that's exactly like you — no one who shares your fingerprints, your thoughts, your dreams, or your vision for your best life. If you knew you couldn't fail, what would your life look like this month? Write down this vision in one page and read it often throughout March/April, especially before you go to sleep. Write it as though you are living your best life now. And as you read it, feel the joy and thanksgiving you would experience if this were your current dream-come-true. This is where it begins. Put simply, you must believe it before you see it. Also, invite love to be your constant companion this month and always.
March/April are two of my favorite months of the year. For those of us north of the equator, it's the time when we say goodbye to winter and welcome the arrival of spring, and enjoy the bloom of colorful flowers. As the weather warms up our bodies and thoughts, it's a time to get serious about our health and a personal rejuvenation program and to begin shedding some of our layers of clothing to show more skin. March/April is also a time of new beginnings and fresh starts with a view to enhancing our health, boosting our prosperity, and upgrading our life.
Affirm daily: “I am loving, lovable, and loved.” As you silently send out thoughts of love to everyone throughout the month, rich blessings come back to you in the forms of joy, peace, vitality, prosperity, and more love to bestow.
Bring nature indoors to your home and office with live plants and bouquets of flowers. Whether you feel it or not, as mentioned below, things of nature -- plants and flowers -- brighten your mood and lift your spirit. If you live in an area of the world where it's still very cold and there are no flowers to enjoy, click on this Flower—Up—Your—Life link.

Hip Replacements: The How, When, and Who (To Go To)
If you or someone you know needs a hip replacement, or any kind of surgery at all,click HERE to read my article on my experience undergoing surgery and my 10 tips for a relaxing, comfortable recovery... for any kind of surgery.
Dr. Joel Matta, Director of the Hip and Pelvis Institute in Santa Monica, CA; HipandPelvis.com • (310-582-7475)
My doctor, Joel Matta, MD, a world-renowned orthopedic surgeon in Los Angeles, specializes in Hip and Pelvic Reconstruction. His informative website provides information to patients and the general public on topics related to the Hip and Pelvis, such as Hip and Pelvis Reconstruction, Acetabular Fractures, Periacetabular Osteotomy, Total Hip Replacements, and much more. Visit his website and contact his office with any questions. Dr. Matta perfected the premier Anterior Approach for Total Hip Replacement and teaches his technique to other doctors around the world. If you need a hip replacement anywhere in the world, make sure you seek out a doctor who uses the Anterior Approach.
Replacing Body Parts
Most of us have heard about the idea that manufacturers intentionally design products poorly so that we consumers are forced to buy replacements, often within just a few years. Planned obsolescence is the economic phrase for this phenomenon, which also includes products being made to fall out of fashion so that we are incentivized to buy new items in order to remain current and, therefore, socially acceptable, pressured to keep up with the proverbial Joneses (pun intended), as it were. As Americans we don’t balk much at this since shopping seems to be our national pastime and a day at the mall purchasing a new toaster, make-up, sweater, refrigerator, or dishware is regarded as exciting, exhilarating even.
But what about when planned obsolescence also seems to apply to our bodies? It sometimes seems that our own great Creator’s prior job was serving on the board of Pottery Barn. As the years advance, for many of us, our joints and eyesight begins to fail, our memories fade, and general deterioration sets in. Luckily, however, modern day medicine, like Home Depot, has also made replacements available. It seems that the day when replacing new body parts becomes just as common as replacing the blender may not be far off.
Some Surprising Statistics About Hip and Knee Replacements
Currently, there are more than seven million Americans living with an artificial knee or hip and this figure is expected to rise as our life spans increase. Most people though, like myself, never anticipate that they will become one of this number. What comes to mind for many when thinking of a person with a hip replacement is a little, old, frail nursing home patient (since someone must be really old to need a new hip) who uses a walker after her surgery to get around (because of course she’d need a walker since an artificial hip couldn’t possibly be as good as a real hip). So it was with great reluctance that I finally acknowledged that the only solution for the hip and leg pain, which I’d been suffering from for years, was a hip replacement.
My Entire Hip Replacement Experience Was Positive and Even Exhilarating
To read my article detailing my personal experience of not only getting a hip replacement, but also viewing the same surgery on another person, click on the link above. I detail the history of replacements, when is the right time to get one, how to find the best doctor, what to expect, how hip pain and surgery affect emotional health, and my 10 tips for a smooth and comfortable recovery... no matter what kind of surgery you may undergo. If you are someone who needs a replacement of any kind, or any kind of surgery at all and have been putting it off because of trepidation or other concerns, my article will be very empowering and uplifting to you.
Stressless Living: Tips for a More Joyful Life
It may seem cliché to "stop and small the roses" more, but research demonstrates time and again that simple pleasures can decrease our stress considerably. Indulge in a relaxing hot bath—Japanese researchers found that among high-stress men and women, hot baths reduced cortisol levels (a hormone produced by the adrenal cortex which goes up in response to stress). Add in some lavender bath oil or salts, too, as this will depend your relaxation.
Go ahead and get away for that long weekend. One study showed that after a three-day, two-night weekend away, subjects had a decrease in cortisol and overall stress markers and a boost in immune system function.
Spend time with your pets— "dog therapy" has proven to reduce cortisol levels. Simply petting a dog or a cat lowers the pulse, blood pressure, and breathing rate.
Listen to your favorite (preferably relaxing) music. Music, especially after a stressful event, has been shown to increase the relaxation response; decrease heart rate, blood pressure, and cortisol levels; and increase immunity.
Finally, don't forget to laugh. Research shows that laughter improves mood after high levels of daily stress and even boosts immunity.
The Health Benefits of Dandelion, Onions & Vitamin B-12
Dandelion: The "Weedy Wonder" For Health And...
Traditional herbal diuretic
Promotes healthy gallbladder function
Builds healthy blood
Remarkable liver support
Flushes out toxins
Encourages proper digestion and elimination
Promotes clear, blemish-free skin
When this versatile herb grows in most gardens, many people consider it a pesky weed and pull it out. But it deserves our highest respect. As a child, and still to this day, if I find the fluffy ball, I make a wish and blow on it as shown in the photo above.
Dandelion root ranks right up there with Milk Thistle, Artichoke and Turmeric for remarkable liver support. The nutrient-rich tonic stimulates the removal of toxins and accumulated wastes; encourages bile flow for proper digestion and elimination, and promotes clear, blemish-free skin.
Also known as Lion's Tooth, Blow Ball, Taraxicum dens-leonis, and Wild Endive, the entire Dandelion plant is regarded as a “weedy wonder” because of its extraordinary culinary and medicinal uses. The leaf is nature’s ideal diuretic – it relieves temporary water weight gain and maintains the body’s natural water balance while supplying necessary potassium. Roasted Dandelion root is a robust coffee alternative with a strong espresso-like flavor—and with ALL the therapeutic benefits of Dandelion! The full-bodied beverage supports healthy liver and digestive function.
Dandelion leaves are also a popular choice for building blood and promoting blemish-free skin due its high content of important nutrients, such as iron, vitamins A, C & D.
Dandelion Root Coffee Recipe
Looking for an easy way to incorporate all the health benefits of this amazing plant — Dandelion Root? Try this easy roasted Dandelion Root coffee recipe. Serves 2-4
4 cups water
2 tablespoons roasted dandelion root
2 tablespoons roasted chicory root
1 cinnamon stick
1-2 ginger coins (sliced from raw ginger root or you can use ginger powder to taste)
Place water, dandelion root, chicory root, ginger coins or powder, and cinnamon stick in a pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer for about 5 minutes. Pour coffee through a small mesh strainer into cups and serve.
TO REITERATE: This centuries-old detoxifier is in the same class as Milk Thistle. Once again, here are some of the well known benefits of dandelion root: It encourages the liver to flush accumulated waste; it acts as a superior diuretic, which does not deplete the body's potassium levels like most pharmaceutical options; it promotes healthy digestion, particularly of fatty foods; it gently promotes bowel regularity without the risk of dependency associated with most laxatives; and the roasted root is a healthy yet energizing alternative to coffee.
Personally, I use some form of Dandelion daily in my healthy nutrition program whether as a liquid extract, capsule, tea, leaf, or root. As shown above in the photo, I also put organic Dandelion leaves and flowers in my salads.
The Penn Herb Company is where I purchase my Dandelion product and all of my natural remedies. Their quality is premier and they deliver right to your front door.

Make Friends With Onions
Though the pungent onion may bring treas to the eyes, when it comes to your health, these should be tears of joy. Since Egyptian times, when they were placed in the tombs of kings, onions have been bestowed with special significance for their ability to spice up bland meals and keep the body in optimal health.
The strong-tasting bulb has health benefits similar to its stinky relative, garlic. It can help keep blood sugar levels in check, a boon for those with diabetes. A partner in cardiovascular health, studies show that onion can lower blood pressure and reduce risk factors for coronary heart disease including platelet aggregation and oxidation of cholesterol.
Onions also play a part in digestive health; their strong antibacterial properties ward off unfriendly microorganisms, while their store of the antioxidant quercetin and organosulfur compounds may lower the risk of colon cancer. The quercetin content may also account for onions' potential to lessen inflammation associated with such conditions as arthritis and asthma.
Add onions or onion powder to souls and stews in the cold and flu season. Sauté them to mellow the strong taste yet punch up everyday staples like vegetable dishes and burgers year-round.
Are You Low on Energy & Often Irritable?
Are you experiencing a personal energy crisis? Just about ready to burn out. Get going and shine brightly again with a simple solution — Vitamin B-12! This energizing vitamin is critical for energy production, nervous system health, and production of mood-enhancing SAMe (S-adenosyl-L-methionine). No wonder B-12 is often used to:
• Support energy levels
• Maintain nervous system health
• Relieve irritability
• Boost brain function
• Improve memory and concentration
Nature's Wonderland Liquid Sublingual Raspberry fast-acting B-12 in a pleasant-tasting, natural raspberry flavor is the one I take daily and recommend. Simply add a few drops to water or juice and get going for better memory, mood, and energy! I enjoy putting it in a glass with alkaline water or coconut water with a sprig of mint, as you see in the photo to the right.

Veggie Chili with Beer
Total Time: 30 minutes; 15 minutes active
Veggie chili is a great dish to share with friends and family. It's hearty and satisfying for everyone, and vegetarians will be grateful for the option. Adding beer elevates a simple chili to a rave-worthy one, great with a hunk of cornbread.The alcohol evaporates out of the recipe, so it's fine for children to enjoy, too
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon chipotle powder
1 medium yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 large carrot, chopped
1 cup wheat beer, red ale or lager
1 14-1/2 ounce can fire-roasted tomatoes, puree
1 15-ounce can kidney beans, drained
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large pot, heat the olive oil. Sauté the onion for five minutes over medium heat, until soft. Add the chili powder and chipotle and stir until fragrant, then add the peppers, carrot and beer. Raise heat to high and bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to medium-low for 5 minutes. Uncover and add the remaining ingredients, stirring to combine. Simmer for another 5-10 minutes to combine the flavors and thicken the chili.
Serve with a beautiful green salad, a hunk of cornbread or other whole grain bread and beer (if you imbibe).

Lemon Ricotta Pasta
Total Time: 20 minutes
This simple, spectacular lemony pasta takes just 20 minutes to prepare. If you are a vegan, you can substitute in dairy-free versions of ricotta and Parmesan cheeses. I also sometimes substitute Soba Noodles for the Whole Wheat Linguine and use Brown Rice or Spinach Linguine. EVERYONE loves this pasta!
1 16-ounce package whole wheat linguine
1 1/2 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/2 cup reserved pasta water
2 tablespoons chopped fresh garlic
2 tablespoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2/3 cup grated Parmesan
1/2 cup chopped chives
Cook pasta al dente in salted water according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water, and drain the linguine in a colander, shaking to remove any excess water.
Mix the ricotta, reserved pasta liquid, garlic, lemon juice, lemon zest, red pepper flakes and salt in a serving bowl. Toss with the warm pasta, top with grated Parmesan and chives. Serve immediately.
Create your own variations on this quick weeknight meal. Sauté asparagus, red onions and snap peas and toss with pasta and sauce. Or top sautéed julienned zucchini strips with the ricotta and lemon sauce, for a gluten-free dish. (After putting in the serving bowl, I often sprinkle some Blue Majik on the top for the beautiful cyan color and to boost the nutritional value.)

Kale and Blood Orange Salad
Total Time: 20 minutes
Take advantage of organic seasonal produce like kale and blood oranges to create this fresh, zesty salad.
4 medium blood oranges
Juice of 1 large lemon
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, smashed
1/4 cup olive oil
1 bunch kale, washed, stems removed
1/2 cup slivered red onions
8 ounces feta cheese, crumbled or cubed (I use dairy-free cheese)
1. For the dressing, zest and juice one of the blood oranges into a small bowl or jar. Taste the juice. If it is very tart, add a tablespoon of lemon juice; if it is very sweet, use two tablespoons blood orange juice and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. Add salt, pepper, garlic and olive oil and whisk well or shake to combine. Set aside.
2. Roll the kale leaves up, cut crosswise into thin ribbons and place into a serving bowl. Pour the dressing over the kale and use your hands to toss, then massage for a minute or two to tenderize the leaves.
3. Peel and segment the remaining blood oranges, either with your fingers or with a knife, cutting between the membranes to make neat sections. Cut each segment into 2 or 3 pieces and add to the bowl with the kale. Add the red onions and feta, toss to mix and serve.
This salad is a great make-ahead, since, unlike many tossed salads, it keeps for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Substitute navel oranges for the blood oranges if you prefer; just be sure to use 2 tablespoons of lemon juice with the sweeter navel orange juice in the dressing.

Inspirational Quotes to Feed Your Soul & Empower Your Dreams
It’s no secret that I like quotes. You'll find them all over my website. My mom used to always say this to me, which I've had on a card attached to my refrigerator for decades...
"Peace is our gift to each other. Serenity is our gift to ourselves."
I am one of those people who gets deeply motivated by the right words. Some of the best, encouraging quotes are in the Bible, of course, and one of my favorites can be found in Romans 2:2. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
There have been countless brilliant minds who have said inspiring words that still help me when I read them. Here are a few of my favorite motivational quotes.
If any of them resonate with you, I encourage you to write them down and tape them to your fridge or computer screen. I have been greatly helped by having a constant reminder of a scripture or a quote to help keep me in line with what I am shooting for. It’s wonderful how a little handwritten quote can speak to you when you need it. After all:
Like apples of gold in settings of silver Is a word spoken in right circumstances. ~Proverbs 25:11
All of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.~ Dale Carnegie
There is no charm equal to tenderness of heart.~ Jane Austen
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.~Aristotle
Most of the important things In the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.~Dale Carnegie
The whole course of things goes to teach us faith.~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that frightens us. Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.~ Marianne Williamson
The only way of finding the limits of the possible Is by going beyond them Into the impossible.~Arthur C. Clarke
Faith is an invisible and invincible magnet, and attracts to itself whatever it fervently desires and persistently expects.~ Ralph Waldo Trine
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Some of Susan's Favorite Nutritional Supplements & Healthy Living Practices
During my radio and TV interview shows, as well as in my workshops, lectures, and retreats, the most-asked question I get, no matter where I travel in the world, goes something like this: "Susan, what supplements do you take daily or during the week, and what lifestyle practices are most important to you?"
A couple times monthly, I get a therapeutic massage, often a shiatsu-type massage, to help work out my knots and painful trigger points resulting from my active lifestyle, and sometimes I opt for an aromatheraphy or deep tissue sports massage or a Swedish-type massage.
So in addition to regular massage therapy, here are some of my favorite nutritional products and other devices I use and highly recommend with links to the products so you can get more information and order. Most of my clients also use these products and practices.
As a result of what I've listed below, I have not had a cold or a flu in over 30 years, and have never taken any prescription medications.
E3 Enzymes Supreme (While I take these daily with meals to support good digestion, I'll take extra during my detox program — at least one hour before a meal or 2 hours after a meal to foster a deeper cleansing.)
Here's What I Suggest to Supercharge Your Vitality:
I have used many of these products for decades and others for years. You can't go wrong with any of them. They are the best-of-the-best. Commit to at least 30 days, or better yet, one season (90 days) on these products and feel the difference. You will be amazed; I guarantee it! All of these products are renowned around America and used by so many celebrities to stay healthy and youthful. I should know because I work with many of them in Los Angeles, New York, and the UK. I don't personally sell any products in my private practice. I simply recommend the ones I use and believe to be the very best, and then let people know where they can be purchased.
If you can afford the Ionizer Plus Water Electrolyzer and the Transcend Infrared Sauna (they come in different sizes), I promise you that your health and vitality will soar, you'll recapture your youthful vitality and stay in the pink year-round, and everyone will start asking you what you're doing to look so good and filled with joy, confidence, and robust health. If you're serious about year-round detoxification, weight loss and keeping it off, and no more fatigue, depression, accelerated aging, a toxic body, or poor health, you will definitely want to get the Ionizer Plus and the Transcend Infrared Sauna.
PS: In addition to what's mentioned above, I also use the entire line of Olbas Herbal Remedies, including the Inhaler, Lozenges, Pastilles, Salve, Tea, Oil, and more.
Many age-old healing practices have been proven by modern research to effectively reduce the impact of stress on body and mind. In numerous studies, massage has been shown to reduce cortisol levels (a hormone that increases with stress), blood pressure, and overall anxiety, and increase serotonin and immune system function.
Yoga, when practiced regularly, leads to reduction in cortisol levels, blood pressure, and feelings of anger and exhaustion. In one study, those who practiced yoga reported better skill in copy with stress, elevated mood, and increased like and job satisfaction than counterparts who merely relaxed reading books.
Meditation and visualization have also been shown to slow heart and breathing rates, decrease nervous system activity, and bring calm to the mind. Other reflective practices to decrease cortisol levels include spirituality, prayer, and journaling.
