I have been hearing from so many of you asking what Shanti Kai™ Essences can help with Coronavirus related stress, and if I can share some naturopathic tips for these challenging times. In response, I’ve written a multi part Natural Health Newsletter, drawing from my biochemistry and naturopathic background, to help you correlate different elements of self care with the appropriate Shanti Kai™ Essences.
Many of you know that early on in life I had my share of illness. As a child, I was one of the first known cases of the Epstein Bar virus, which started as mono and led to several secondary infections. But it was after my car accident (at age 17) that my immune system was severely weakened, and for many years thereafter it seemed I was always battling something.
During my college years, for instance, I developed meningitis during a deadly college outbreak, and shortly thereafter contracted a staph infection in my blood during a meningitis medical test (a clinical “error”), and let me tell you … it was a loooong road back to true wellness.
Fortunately for me, I had been taught at a young age to intuitively scan energies before I took them in… be it food or nutritional supplements, water, clothes, the places I went, etc, etc, (and etc lol), and I began to energetically rely on this to get and stay well. Through this vigilance, I eventually became someone who almost never, ever got sick.
When I finally discovered and added Vibrational Essences to my regimen, I not only almost never got sick, but I actually became someone that could help others get well. And that’s what I’ve been doing ever since and what Shanti Kai™ is all about.
I know for me personally (but I believe it’s also true for most), that we are most susceptible to illness when we are too stressed or overly tired. That’s why I’m revisiting Wellness Basics, and which Shanti Kai™ Essences to use for different areas of self care. When you strengthen yourself vibrationally you can become an energetic force field that repels lower energies, such as parasites, pathogens, and other unwanted invaders.
I sincerely hope you find the following tips helpful… Today’s newsletter features Diet and Vitality, but will be followed by sections on: Proper Hydration, Sun & Light Energy, Sleep & Rest, Relaxation, Meditation / Alone Time, When Your Home Becomes Your Life, Maintaining Harmony in Your Quarantine Community, and a few other topics.
And stay tuned, I will be releasing a more extensive naturopathic guide to our product line later this summer! We will also be offering an extensive Dietary and Vitality Guide with many of my tips Clients pay for in Consultions, yours free when you sign up or refer a friend to our newsletter.

Much Love & Aloha Always,
“Embrace the essences on your healing journey… each bottle is alive with living vital energies from the plant and mineral kingdom, ready to assist your growth and healing!”
Diet, Diet, Diet
You are what you eat. Eating processed, refined and convenient, fast foods, white or refined sugars, GMO foods, “wrong” fats, too much caffeine or alcohol, and other ingested chemicals and pesticides can weaken your “body armor” leaving you tired and/or making it easier to get sick. Choosing to increase organic foods, greens and ruffage, plant-based protein, and opting for cage free or free range/hormone free and organic fed meats & produce, and fish from safe waters may have dramatic impact on your overall health and vitality.
It should be noted that even “good food” can lack nourishment if its inner energy is depleted… this is why in Ayurveda the emotional state of the cook is considered so important, and why so many traditions offer a blessing over the food.*
Here a few rules to live by for optimal digestive health.*
- Don’t eat when emotionally upset (especially when angered, frustrated or worried)
- Don’t eat right before bed
- Don’t eat when overly tired
- Don’t eat in front of TV or while distracted
You may also find the following Shanti Kai™ Essences helpful for optimizing nutritional health:
Sacral or Solar Plexus Chakra Essences: These chakras relate to how you nurture yourself, your emotions, partnerships/ relationships, and professional life. They house important digestive and elimination organs, and although they relate to processing on an energetic level, stress in the areas of life governed by these chakras can result in accumulation of toxic energy and resultant imbalance and physical health problems as a downstream event.
Thyroid Chakra & Throat Chakra Essences: The throat chakra has to do with food intake and breath, and the thyroid chakra is a minor chakra that houses the thyroid gland so essential for proper metabolism. Imbalanced energy in these chakras can impact physical health as a downstream event.
Wild Hawaiian Sanchezia relates to balancing fire energy in the lower chakras.
Papaya relates to balancing the Sacral Chakra.
Emotional Eating, such as eating because you’re bored or as comfort when upset, can also be a detrimental habit as it may lead to undesired weight gain or even eating disorders.
The following Shanti Kai™ Essences may help if you suffer from this behavior.
Mom & Baby™: Often the emotional component around eating, which can evolve into physical problems later in life, begin as simply not having all of our needs met or nurtured as children. Mom and Baby™ is therefore not just for moms and babies, but for all of our “inner children”.
Healer Within™ is our stress and trauma blend. It has a soothing yin energy which is meant to help tame fiery energy that often surround upset emotion, frustration, and trauma. Ancient wisdom and modern science both agree that when you are calm your food sits better.
Suggested Flower Essences for Emotional Eating:
Queen Emma Spider Lily can also help resolve psychospiritual needs around ones “mother issues”.
Sunflower can benefit nutrition by balancing lack of nurturing energy surrounding father figure issues.
Morning Glory: Get up in the morning and rejoice… because you feel inspired, motivated, and ready to say “No” to emotional eating and other non beneficial habits. Be empowered, you now have the subtle but extra edge you need to reset your cravings!
Suggested Mineral Essences For Emotional Eating:
Black Tourmaline clearing negative and heavy energies that accumulate in lower chakras.
The heavier we feel, the more need there is to distract from the emotions.
Rutilated Quartz helps the body ease and release sadness and grief, emotions that often relate to the need to eat distract oneself with food or by other means.
Larimar Essence has a calming effect on the third chakra and may help those that eat for mental escape. It may help calm “too many thoughts” and may keep you from getting “too in your head”.
Lemon Calcite may benefit calming the third chakra’s energy and aid contentment, which in turn softens cravings.
Health is all about vibrating at your optimal frequency. Tendencies toward excess may negatively affect vitality by maxing out your resources, leaving you drained.
Master Ginger Essence is a robust and vital essence sure to stimulate and invigorate your senses. Often when we are trance eating or “trancing” in any way, shape or form, we need something pungent yet sweet to awaken us.
Our Ginger Master Essence is loaded with 9 types of ginger, most from the big island, a combination of both fragrantly sweet (like some of the ginger family fragrant flowers) and also fiery spice (like the ginger root itself) that together create a lure to awaken you back to the present moment so you can ask yourself… do you really want to eat that?
Flower Essences for Curbing Excess or Addictive Eating:
Iniko and Noni Essence Combo: Iniko may help those that crave sweetness excessively to energetically curb their tendency… without bitter, there is no sweet! And speaking of bitters… while Iniko Essence helps us confront our desire for sweet, Noni helps us to confront and expunge toxic energy we would rather avoid.
In addition to diet, it may be beneficial to supplement your diet with certain nutrients that can help your body to combat the effects of stress, such as electrolytes, trace minerals, antioxidants, and vitamins (is B, C, Zinc, Calcium, etc) , many of which can be derived from eating a balanced Whole Foods based diet.
The following flower & mineral essences may help you with overall Vitality:
