Happy New Year !

“Today, we embark on a new year.  Today, we are given a new start.  Today, we have the world at our finger tips.  Today, our body, mind, soul, and spirit are renewed.

 Today, starts the rest of our life…..” Hon. Dr. Shakiera Hockaday-Bey

Today, I want to take the time to thank each and every one of you for your love and support during the past year.  2014 has been a year of accomplishments for me. In January 2014, we moved SASMA to The Blvd and was able to introduce the full menu of spa services at that location.   I was given the privilege to receive the Honorary Doctorate Degree from CICA University and Seminary in March 2014.  I was able to introduce the following services at Herbal Infusion and SASMA Wellness Center…Cupping, V-Infusion, Chocolate Souffle’ Massage, and Earthing. In October, we were featured in Essence magazine online…http://photos.essence.com/galleries/coolest-spa-eek-treatments-near-you.  Without your support we could not have done any of this.  THANK YOU!!!!

I am excited about 2015!  This is the year to claim your blessings.  It is up to you.  Now that the holidays are behind us we will all change our focus to our health and what we are going to do to get our bodies back on track.  A lot of churches normally do the Daniel fast or some version of it during this time of the year.  So, I am going to post something to either add or delete from your life daily for the first 30 days of 2015.

Let’s start with ways of detoxing our body.  In my opinion, the first and foremost thing is “WATER“.  It is just a simple thing….but most of us hate the thought of water.  Water does not have any taste but I am always told that they don’t like the taste of water.  Our body is make up of more than 70% water.  This element is important for every function in the body.  It is the most important thing when we start to talk about detox. It takes water to flush the organs and lymphatic system. Water is important in the function of the following bodily fluids  digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature. Kaiser Permanente nephrologist Steven Guest, MD, agrees:   Water Helps Your Kidneys. Body fluids transport waste products in and out of cells. The main toxin in the body is blood urea nitrogen, a water-soluble waste that is able to pass through the kidneys to be excreted in the urine.  “Fluid losses occur continuously, from skin evaporation, breathing, urine, and stool, and these losses must be replaced daily for good health,” says.Guest. Our kidneys do an amazing job of cleansing  your body of toxins as long as your intake of fluids is adequate. So, as of today, make a conscious effort to drink at least 6 to 8 glasses of room temperature water daily.  Now if you drink Caffeine then you need to drink 2 glasses of water for each cup of caffeine you intake.

Water is the most important thing you can do for your health
