HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I know that most of us are excited to be past 2020, and it really feels like the overall energy has been better since we’ve hit the new year. I wanted to put together a quick post to outline the TOP TEN most popular Sassy Holistics posts though. 2020 was a year where many people started to get back on the path to better health and I had many posts that were popular on a daily basis. I hope they help you all on your healing journey. May 2021 be an even better year for health!
Top 10 Posts of 2020 on Sassy Holistics
Number 10: How to REALLY Fix a Vitamin D Deficiency
Did you know that vitamin D is actually a hormone? And that we need a healthy liver and strong kidneys to be able to utilize vitamin D correctly? Most people don’t know this. Rule number 1 about nutrition: anything that is usually recommended on TV is likely NOT something you want to be doing! The MSM and many conventional doctors are all over recommending vitamin D supplements (even for INFANTS!) but this is beyond all common sense. Learn more about why I do not recommend supplementing with vitamin D, and how to actually fix your levels here.
Number 9: 7 Signs You NEED Liver Support
Every single person I come across needs liver support. It’s not even an exaggeration- the liver is THAT important, and it’s been something that has been attacked for many decades. Year and years of poor nutritional advice, lots of stress, and toxins have made our livers stressed and weak. Since our livers have over 500 jobs to perform everyday, we really need them to be working as well as possible. Check out my post here to learn the 7 most common signs of a stressed out liver.
Number 8: Copper Imbalance- Looking Beyond Copper Toxicity
This was one of my first posts on Sassy Holistics and it’s definitely stayed popular for the last 5 years. Copper toxicity is a common subject when you are learning about mineral imbalances but I have a much difference approach than most people. I don’t like to induce massive amounts of detox or use synthetic supplements to “purge” copper. I like to support the body so it balances copper safely and naturally. Read this entire post here!
Number 7: My Thoughts on Plexus
Most trends have absolutely no place in the holistic health world. This definitely applies to Plexus. Over the last few years since I wrote this post I’ve heard of pretty severe reactions to their supplements. But the MOST telling is that everyone I know that used to take them and sell them no longer even bother anymore. They were a trend for the moment, and now it’s starting to pass. If you want REAL health, you can do much better than overpriced, synthetic supplements. Read this post here to find out what I recommend instead of Plexus.
Number 6: How to Heal Histamine Intolerance
Histamine intolerance is a very common issue that many of my clients have dealt with. The usual advice is to just eliminate histamine foods… and not to do much else. What if I told you that you could HEAL your histamine issues and move on with your life? You CAN. Working on gut and liver health are key, but you can read all of my tips in this popular post here.
Number 5: How to Heal Leaky Gut in 3 Steps
This post has become my go-to when someone wants to get started on the correct path for healing their gut. It can be as easy as 3 steps! This post has symptoms of leaky gut, details on which 3 steps I find to be the most important, and many suggestions on what items you can implement to get started on your gut healing journey. Gut healing doesn’t have to be complicated! But gut healing is essential to work on if you want to heal from any chronic illness. Read this post here.
Number 4: Balancing 3 of the Main Minerals: Mag, Sodium, and potassium
This post has over 20,000 views from 2020! It was a very popular post and with good reason- people are learning the truth about supplementing with magnesium. This post alone has helped so many people that were on the path to adrenal exhaustion from overuse of magnesium. The whole point of HTMA and mineral balancing is to BALANCE minerals, but for some reason many, many practitioners like to push massive amounts of magnesium. I learned myself the hard way that too much mag WILL hurt your adrenals. Learn how to properly balancing mag, potassium, and sodium here.
Number 3: Natural Liver Support- We Have to Love our Livers!
With over 31,000 views, this next post is a big favorite of mine. Every single person needs liver loving! Like I mentioned above, the liver has over 500 jobs and it really needs to be functioning in order to do many important things like balance hormones, support healthy copper levels, detox toxins, keep our bowels moving, and so much more. The liver is so overlooked and it takes a beating in our modern world. Medications, alcohol, excess sugar, fake food, birth control pills, and basically everything else that is common can really stress the liver out. Click here to learn how to love your liver today.
Number 2: How to Heal a Hiatal Hernia
Coming in at 41,000 views for 2020, this post is one of the main posts that people see first when they find Sassy Holistics. It has been a very popular post on Pinterest for several years as well. Having gone through a hiatal hernia myself, I know that healing it is possible, but it is so frustrating to try and find the information on healing in the first place. This post became so popular and helped so many people over the last few years. This is why I decided to write up an entire guide to help with hiatal hernia healing. Check out my whole post here, and buy the guide here.
And Finally, NUMBER 1: Gentle Liver Loving Ideas for Sensitive Individuals
And the absolute top post for 2020 with 42,500 votes is about the LIVER! So many of my liver posts made this list, but this one quickly became popular when I published it last year. Many people cannot tolerate a lot of detox at first when they start healing. Our adrenals are weak, we are depleted of nutrients, and too much detox can make this worse. So this post goes over some of the most gentle ways to support your liver while you are still working on overall healing. The liver needs love, but it’s best to not overdo it. Read my tips for gentle liver loving here.
