Just wanted to say THANKS for helping me resolve my hand issue in which the skin blistered severely after I had a mercury filling removed from a leaking tooth. The mud and dental packs along with the castor oil treatments from worked wonderfully.  The skin is finally getting back to normal and just in time for my next big vacation.  Please share, I hope this helps other people who might have the same experience I did with this procedure.

I want to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for Lauren’s hard work,  dedication and support that Lauren delivers to me.  I really enjoy working with her.  She is extremely bright and kind to boot! She is extremely responsive to any questions, concerns or opportunities that I bring to her.

-Paige, Belleair Bluffs, FL


Lauren is a professional, knowledgeable, and dependable.  She always answers my questions above and beyond the call of duty, providing additional information and relevant material in a timely fashion—i.e., 99% of the time she answers the question the day it is sent.   I value her knowledge, speed, and commitment to helping me get what I need.

-Emily MBA, Chicago, IL


Any time I have a question about pairing a product with a health condition, Lauren provides me scientific evidence and references to back up its efficacy.  I appreciate her quick response and willingness to find answers that are invariably helpful for me and my clients.

-Cindy MPH, FL


Lauren has become a friend, and someone I can rely on supplying me with the best service, answers to every question I have asked, she is my go-to person when I don’t know what will work with a client.  Lauren knows her stuff back to front – I love her calmness, and her wonderful smile. She has a relaxed, kind and very friendly personality, and she is FABULOUS!!!

-Nicole, FL


I have been most impressed by Lauren Felts for the two years I have known her. She demonstrates helpfulness, knowledge, guidance, and precision of information.

– Dr. McDanal MD, AL


I have had the great pleasure of dealing with Lauren for more than a year. She has a very strong grasp of health and a knack for effectively conveying/teaching relevant information. I have often been impressed as to how very productive and efficient she is.  Most importantly, she is always cheerful and eager to serve, “going the extra mile” for the client whenever necessary.

-Dr. Sanchez MD, Miami, FL


I have had the honor to work with Lauren Felts. Lauren has never disappointed us.  She is prompt, curtious, kind, and knowledgable. She always has good advice and has gone out of her way to make my job easier. She is a beautiful lady both inside and out, and a fantastic representative for all that you teach and offer.

-Lynette CN, Cape Coral, FL


She goes above and beyond to meet the needs of her clients.  No matter what the circumstances, Lauren is “johnny on the spot” with her answers to my questions. And believe me, I call with lots of questions!  She is always approachable, and never makes me feel rushed, even when I know she’s quite busy. Without fail, I learn something every time I call.  For such a young individual, her knowledge base surpasses most veteran practitioners!  When presented with a question, she never fumbles for an answer.   She is confident of her response and articulates her solutions clearly.  Few people have her gift of teaching.  I, personally, have learned so much from Lauren, and I quickly put to use the information she so kindly and generously shares.

-Sharon RN, VA


Thank you so much for helping me with my nutrition. My body thanks you. The shake is a great part of my life now. I love it and feel better not guilty! I am grateful for you.

-Michelle, Los Angeles, CA

    Hi, Lauren, I love your site. It inspires me to be better about my nutritional choices. I would love to know what is your typical weekly menu. I have tried many of your smoothies and LOVE them. Your articles are useful and clear. I share them with all the people I love and want to inspire to be healthy. It’s very hard in this affluent country to be a healthy person. Everything conspires against it. Cheap food, focus on food, portion sizes, the feeling of “outsiderness” or “kookiness” if you follow this type of nutritional path, etc. I am so warmed by finding kindred spirits and quite grateful for your site.

      Thank you so much Nicole! That means so much as I can only hope to inspire as many people as possible as I have done for you. It is actually quite funny that you mentioned the financial obstacle of being healthy as I was just discussing this with my boyfriend. The way I look at it is that we just have to prioritize, while we can save money now, we might have to pay way more later. Furthermore, choosing to be healthy is not just about physical health but mental, spiritual and emotional health and without those I think we have nothing. So for me personally, if I feel my best, I can achieve and create way more things that end up making me far more rich than if I feel bad. But this is a valid topic that I think is worth writing about… I will work on it! As for my weekly menu, I will start keeping track although it might not be as diverse as you might hope… I am slightly a creature of habit, but you can start by reading my Post “What do you Eat Then?”

    Hello Theholykale,
    In addition to your post I was wondering, I attend the University of Iowa currently as a freshman. I was a dedicated theater and speech member in high school. Next semester i might change my major back to theater, but I want to go to a great acting school because it’s been my dream literally forever. But I’m not sure how to approach it all. Any advice? Do I graduate from Iowa first in theater and then apply to a different college? Do I apply to a different college right away for next year? How does this process work?
    Looking for positive feedback and thorough advice. And perhaps links or more info to help me. Thank you!
    BTW great blogpost

      Thank you for writing in! As for your career path, it depends what you want to do. You should figure that part out first. In the health field there are so many paths such as acupuncturist, chiropractor, naturopathic doctor, certified nutritionist, health counselor etc. With that being said, most all programs require pre-reqs such as biology, anatomy etc. Therefore, taking those classes in your undergrad is extremely helpful. You could even do pre-med. It is best for you to find the program you want to take and then see what classes it requires for admissions. I hope that helps!

    HI Lauren, I tried to leave a comment under say Hello – but it didn’t like my e-mail. I wrote asking if you have any good recipes for helping reduce/ replace sugar/chocolate addiction? If you could e-mail me directly – that would be great. thank you Pam in Iowa

      Reply lauren March 28, 2013 at 1:50 pm

      Hi Pam! If you are having sugar/chocolate addictions, I would actually like to deal with the cause. Oftentimes people who have chocolate addictions have low magnesium levels (chocolate has high magnesium and its the body’s way of trying to raise levels), or low serotonin levels. As for sugar, this often can be due to an imbalance in healthy gut flora (candida), low serotonin or even a physical addiction to the substance (white sugar and high fructose corn syrup are highly addictive substances). Therefore, I would suggest taking a magnesium supplement, or switching to raw unheated, cacao powder. Cacao powder has no sugar, but is very high in magnesium. As for the sugar, I would look into the symptoms of candida and see if this is something you may be suffering from. If so, then you will have to tackle that. In the meantime, switch to only healthy sweeteners such as raw honey, yacon syurp, grade b maple syrup, molasses, coconut sugar, and stevia. You can simply switch out any recipe with “sugar” for these other options. A glutamine supplement also tends to help with these cravings as well.

    Great juicing guide! Found your blog to be very helpful without feeling overwhelmed with mass information.
    Just had a question for you. If I were to start a juicing fast for 10 days how many cups of juice would you say I should have per day? I read the tkh detox article but it only states “vegetable juice” without an indicated amount.

    • lauren
      Reply lauren November 14, 2013 at 2:27 pm

      It depends on how you feel, but typically you should shoot for 16 oz. portions, 4 times daily. So each 16 oz. juice would be a “meal” with 1 large “snack” a day. With that being said, everyone is different, some people need to drink more, and some people prefer to drink less.

        Hi Lauren, I am looking for recipes with the amount of protein in them because I need to watch the amount of protein I have a day because I have stage 3B Kidney Disease do any of your recipes come with the amount of protein per serving? I Love all the recipesI have seen so far.

          Hi Geri, thanks so much! I don’t put the protein amount, but you can easily calculate using this protein chart. The good news is that plant-based protein is lower than meat protein and much easier on the body. So if you are plant-based, it should be much easier to keep your protein levels low. You can find some great recipe websites here.

    Hi Holly, everyone is different, but it is not out of the realm of possibilities for it to take affect so quickly. I would listen to your body and its much better to get off now than later, if that is what you think is best for you.

      Hi Juanita, I would try using fresh raw nuts like cashews and blending them into more of a nut flour…. let me know how that works.

    Lauren, I have been suffering with constipation for 17 years. I admit I had a terrible diet for most of my life (high carbs) but now I do try to eat healthier. I just can’t get on the right track. I know I need to use the products you have recommended but to be honest, I can’t afford them. Unfortunately I live way out in the country and I don’t know of anyone that actually does the kind of work you do. I have really good insurance but my medical doctors just want to put me on medications, which cause more side effects then good. My stomach is pretty big and sore to the touch because I can’t go the potty. I tried some probiotics and ended up with a terrible headache so I quit them. I would have continued on them but I didn’t know if I should. I have purchased many vitamins and after reading your articles I understand why they didn’t help. Just this week I have developed a red sore tongue and sore gums also my face feels sunburned but its not. I am so frustrated with trying to make myself healthy . I read one thing is good for you and I try it the next week I find out that its not good for you. Shew , what should I start with that’s the least expensive but still good? I know you are very busy and I hate to bother you but i sincerely want to educate myself in the right way. Everything you write just seems to make great sense to me. Thank you

      Hi Dawn, the cheapest and most effective thing for you to do is to start on a liquid based diet. Drink smoothies for breakfast, soup for lunch and dinner. This will allow your body to heal and to push the undigested food out of the body. I would also purchase an enema kit and start doing warm water enemas. You can do them daily to elicit a bowel movement. I would also start juicing. Drink fresh green juice daily. It would also be a great idea to make sure you are drinking half your weight in ounces of water (purified) daily. First thing in the morning drink a large glass of water warm with 1/2 lemon squeezed. Then before you eat (20 min before), drink a cup of water with 1 tbs. apple cider vinegar and 1 tbs. aloe vera juice. Cut out all packaged or pre-made foods, desserts, fried foods, and stick to homemade smoothies and soups – nothing from a box or can. Homemade broth for the soup would be the best. I hope that helps!
