Fully Rooted in Growth & Happiness

At Fully Rooted, we believe that in order to live a magnificent life, full of happiness, wonder, beauty and love, then one has to journey to the root of all the growth-stimulating areas of life. Areas such as health, relationships, financial achievement, and spirituality, are just to name a few. You cannot transcend into the level of your wildest dreams unless you understand and master the basics, effectively building an indestructible foundation for your life’s mansion. The basics are also the roots. The roots of life are the truth. It is only when we accept the truth that we can finally be happy and filled with a great sense of peace that warms our soul even in the coldest of weathers.

We personally know the amazing ripple effect that great health can have on every other area of your life. It makes the impossible possible, and turns dreams into reality. Great health is difference between a happy life and a miserable life. It is that plain and simple truth we need to come to terms with and begin to change our actions. A little change goes a long way, but it also makes your beautiful transformation sustainable. It won’t be long until you find yourself able to run around with your children like you used to, or hiking to that beautiful spot from which your vantage point overlooks the natural beauty of the land. You, and only you, can take yourself from illness to wellness… but that growth can only take place if you change.

In tandem with the realism that growth can only come from change, there has to be a balance and contentment with how your life already is… right now in this very moment. Just like the key to great health requires a journey back to the root of good food and disciplines, the same goes for your inner happiness. The root of true happiness comes from acceptance. No matter what speed your life is going at or how little or big you’ve changed in accordance to your goals, it is vital to remember that your life is exactly where it is supposed to be right in this moment of time. If you are not where you would like to be, take a breath and surrender to your acceptance and faith that you will get there, but living in this moment is the most importance thing of all. If you have changed multiple fronts of your life and are blasting through achievement after achievement, living your life at an amazing speed, then take a breath, humble yourself, and accept your life the way it is right now… nothing more, nothing less. Now. Because just as much as growth comes from change, happiness comes from acceptance of what can and cannot change at the moment, ultimately accepting yourself for who you are right now and loving every part of that.

Fully Rooted actively practices this truth and is determined to help everyone in the community that we come in contact with see and believe this for themselves. Whether it is sustainably setting someone up to change their lifestyle from an ill-based one to one full of exuberance with the power of food, or sharing a personal, motivational story from one of our seven members, assuring them that they are not alone in this journey of life, we are passionate in making this connection and offering our knowledge, energy, love and support. Always remember that the growth of anything comes from change beginning from the roots and radiates into every other area of its’ life, and happiness comes from the acceptance that life is the way it is supposed to be right now in this moment and you are exactly where you are intended to be.

Deep breath…

Smile.

Much love from the Fully Rooted Team.

 

 

Sustainable Health

Listen, there are so many various diets and cleanses out there, so many in fact that there is probably a new one created every single day. The majority of them are based on the same idea, which ultimately makes them extremely appealing to the masses. This idea is to lose weight. Most of the population in our society wants to get the very best, very fast, without the work. Bigger, better, faster, stronger… with faster being the kicker. Immediate gratification, folks, that is what it’s all about. But let me tell you from first-hand experience, that immediate gratification, no matter what area in your life it comes to, is not sustainable. As fast as that gratification came, it will leave you just as quickly. Why? It is unsustainable and short-lived because you did not earn it. There was no passion involved in the actions which lead to no appreciation with the result. Period.

You can either look at this truth as heartbreaking or motivating. If viewed negatively then you will without a doubt stay in the vicious circle that so many people are wound up in… always looking for a quick fix while slowly diminishing their gratitude for the amazing things in life. On the other hand, if you realize that balance and commitment equal sustainability and are passionate to reach that mastery in your life, then you will be inspired. Inspired to learn, live, love and grow. Inspired to create your life around what feels right instead of what looks right.

The first step in a life that feels right is your health, plain and simple. You cannot fully feel anything without optimum health, and prime health is built from the root up… literally. Meaning what goes into your body is a direct correlation with what actions and results will be reaped from what comes out of your body. Crumple up all of those printed diet plans that you got from the internet and throw them in the garbage. Erase from your mind anything that any (for the most part) “professional” bodybuilder or fitness coach has told you in regards to what to eat and when to eat. The real deal will take discipline and dedication, but in the end there is promise and purity that will awaken you from the sleepiness that has engulfed most of your life. With the right foods producing the super nutrients and vitamins that your cells crave, there is no telling what you will be able to do with your life. Limitless.

These vital nutrients and vitamins are received from the right foods. When I say the right foods, I am talking about consciously eating on a daily basis. Before putting anything into your mouth, ask yourself, “is this okay to eat?” Be honest with yourself. Of course we are all at different levels of education, especially with food knowledge, but deep down inside I believe that we all know the difference between bad foods and good foods. Flip the box over and read the Nutritional Facts and ingredients listed, look and feel the food, and really think about it… will this be good or bad for me?

This is a perfect place to start your personal health reformation. Build the foundation with one stone at a time because… there is no immediate gratification with sustaining a healthy lifestyle, but I promise the results from the balance and commitment are out-of-this-world incredible!

Survivor for life,

From Illness to Wellness

sunflowerI have been involved in the medical field as a phlebotomist for over 30 years. In my years I have seen more illness than I care to. Years and years of our socially acceptable American diet and lack of exercise leads to many health problems. I see people with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cancer and arthritis to name a few on a highly regular basis. All caused and controlled by diet. I hear daily “Don’t get old” or ” why do these things happen to me”. For me it’s a no brained.. Poor choices lead to poor results! I can see everyday and feel everyday the importance of good food and health choices. I wish our society would teach more about plant based diets, exercise and  its link to wellness. Then people would be less apt to have to get into the healthcare system. People complain about the healthcare system and the best way to do something about it is to not get involved  it in the first place. At Fully Rooted we believe that we can be the introduction to this lifestyle of wellness! Simply implementing fresh raw cold pressed juice a few times a day everyday can have so many benefits! Its a path to wellness that can lead you to better and better positive decisions to take your health and life to the next level!  At work I do try to convey this message to as many that will listen. I feel I make a difference as a bridge to both worlds and someday my wish is to have everyone prevent and heal disease through diet and exercise.

What juicer is best for you?

So you are hearing all of this talk about how juicing has shifted lives from illness to wellness and that there are benefits which are seemingly endless. The results are factual and statistical, plus you can visibly see extraordinary results of juicing with first-hand experience by speaking and meeting each and every one of our members here at Fully Rooted, Inc. The decision is made and you want to make the change in your life to provide a cell-boosting nectar to yourself every day from the convenience of your own home. But how do you get started and what type of juicer do you purchase? Great question!

First off, any juicer is better than NO juicer. However, there are certain types that not only yield more juice than others but also produce more nutrient-dense juice. Two main types of juicers are Masticating and Centrifugal. A Centrifugal juicer uses a high-speed, heated machine to grind up the fruits and vegetables, resulting in denigrated, pulp-free juice. The loss of vital nutrients is contributed to the heat that is used to juice the fruits and vegetables. The Pulp Ejector Juicers are very similar to Centrifugal juicers, in the sense that they use heat to extract the juice and spit the pulp out in a separate chamber.

We at Fully Rooted, Inc. choose the Masticating type juicers for there ability to yield an efficient amount of juicer but there are no compromising of life-sustaining nutrients from the fruits and vegetables. Masticating juicers either use a single or double gear (auger) that grinds up the fruit and vegetable fibers and breaks up the plant, resulting in more enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Masticating juicers are generally more effective than Centrifugal juicers because they can extract more juice from the same amount of food. Masticating juicers will also extract juice from wheatgrass (oh yea!), spinach, and other leafy greens and herbs.

Masticating juicers operate at slower speeds than centrifugal juicers, essentially allowing them to put more TLC (tender love and care) into your fruits and veggies and giving you more nutrition in your glass. In addition to extracting juices, these kinds of juicers also homogenize foods to make baby foods, sauces, nut butters, banana ice creams and fruit sorbets! Now we’re talking!!

You are now informed on the productivity and efficiency of the two main types juicers out there, but there is still the issue of your wallet and dishing out the cash for one of these magical machines. The prices vary from around $55 for a hand-crank wheatgrass juicer all the way upwards to around $2000 for a Norwalk Juicer (top of line in every aspect of a juicer). But please don’t let the cost sway you from buying a juicer. You can find one that is affordable and the investment into your health is priceless and guaranteed to be the best decision you could ever make.

Take a look at a couple of brand named juicer companies that we are now distributors for. Fully Rooted can help you in your decision to buy a juicer. We offer competitive prices because we want you to be the healthiest and happiest that you can possibly be!
