For as much as I learned in three days with Natalia, I feel like I learned almost as much in two hours with Gil. Renae and I had appointments with him and Lola came along for the ride, believe it or not, we actually sat in on each others sessions! That’s how much we wanted to pick his brain. For the record, it was not the slightest bit awkward, I’m not sure how that’s possible but I guess we’re into some pretty weird stuff. Gil was kind enough to let us record our “interviews” while he was working away, as soon as I get a copy (Lola and Renae…hint, hint ;)) I’ll be sharing in the form of quotes or audio clips. I do recall drilling him on the following:
Why colonics are more important for someone eating cleanly than someone living a mainstream lifestyle.
Why some people have more success with a paleo-style or an 80/10/10 lifestyle.
What are some things that can be done to offset radiation (especially as a Flight Attendant).
His thoughts on probiotics and fermented foods.
Helpful tips for someone prone to nausea (myself).
His thoughts on living a long-term clean lifestyle in a city environment.
I did not take this particular video but I’m loving the series of clips that have been posting on Youtube:
Thursday afternoon I met up with my mom, stepdad, and baby sister who live in Maryland. It was their first trip to New York so of course I took them to Pure Food and Wine for my THIRD sundae of the week.
Friday morning we drove into Philadelphia where I used to go to school. I met up with several friends including getting to meet a couple of ladies that I’ve enjoyed getting to know in the online world! Courtney of Spirulina Junkie and Sarah of Queer Vegan Food are just the sweetest couple doing so much good in the world and it was a heap of fun getting to chat with them over green drinks at Philly’s Jar Bar. If you’re not familiar with their websites, definitely go have a look!
…Well that’s the end of the NYC updates but I have so much planned as a result of this trip. I’m very much looking forward to starting my own health coaching practice in the near future as well as looking at attending the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. For now, I will see you next on What I Ate Wednesday!
