Crypto Investing Is For Girls Too

crypto investing

Hey everyone… Tara here from Dallas, Texas.


The women’s restroom at the Blockchain Superconference

I just had to write this post while I am taking a break at the Bitcoin, Ethereum and Blockchain SuperConference.

And wow, this place smells like aftershave… Yep, there are no lines at the women’s restrooms, and I am slightly wondering why.

We need financial health too!

As I looked around at all these males, I began to wonder why there are barely any females here. I have heard stories of how some of these men found financial independence just because they have invested in the cryptocurrency craze.

Why aren’t more women getting in to this money making venture?

This I can’t answer, but I will give my opinion why more females should consider investing in cryptocurrency.

Men’s restroom at the Blockchain Superconference

Most of you know that I am adamant about helping people live healthy. And financial health is a huge part of this mix. You see, it is finances that cause stress and stress leads to many bad health problems.

So why not get yourself in strong financial health?

  • Maybe you are nervous about investing in something you know little about
  • Or you are listening to some crypto “haters” and are assuming it will drop

No matter your opinion or reasoning, I want to assure you that you CAN make money in crypto investing.

A friend

I have a friend who was residing in Puerto Rico before Hurricane Maria devastated the country. And he had told me had some money in Bitcoin and Ethereum and he was quite happy with the profits he had made.

My friend was able to travel back to the States, rent a home and when time was right, he flew back to his home in Puerto Rico and installed a solar system to manage without electricity.

And while he makes good money in his work, my friend told me that he was able to do all of that with the profits he has made off cryptocurrency.

What’s more, a group of cryptocurrency billionaires have moved to Puerto Rico and are buying up property… Yes, they are all men.

Why no women? C’mon girls, we need to keep pace with these guys.

You can check out about these billionaires wanting to make Puerto Rico a crypto utopia here. And let me quote something important in this article from the New York Times:

And these men — because they are almost exclusively men — have a plan for what to do with the wealth: They want to build a crypto utopia, a new city where the money is virtual and the contracts are all public, to show the rest of the world what a crypto future could look like.”

My friend also told me the governor of Puerto Rico is even considering making the government run on a blockchain system.

It seems blockchain is the future.

Isn’t it time for the Crypto Ladies?

I wanted to share this with you girls because you deserve financial freedom too.

And you need to know that you can buy a little or a lot of cryptocurrency. It isn’t difficult once you learn.

One of the speakers at this conference is Ronnie Moas who founded Standpoint Research. In mid 2017, Bitcoin was trading at about $2,500 per coin (you can buy “pieces” of coins). Ronnie predicts that by 2027, Bitcoin will be valued at, or above $50,000 per coin.

As I write this, Bitcoin is over $10,000.

Girls, You Need To Get IN!

I plan on sharing more on this, but I do want you to realize that cryptocurrency IS going to keep rising and you would be foolish to stand on the sidelines while we win.

If you would like to get started with investing in cryptocurrency, you can do so at Coinbase. Just click here to get started.

There is more conference fun happening, so I am going to head back. But I will be sharing more soon and I know you may have questions… So ask them in the comment section and I will either answer with a post or in a direct response.

Let’s get financially healthy together.

And that is all for now from Crypto Mom… Stay tuned for more great info on this subject.

Nature Heals: 10 Plants That Have Healing Powers

nature healsDo you buy over-the-counter medications for various healing effects? Many of these medications use plants and herbs for the primary ingredient and add various man-made chemicals.

So why add the chemicals?

It is called product creation and means profits for that particular pharmaceutical company. Profits they would not generate if they just used the plant.

Now, I am not a Doctor. I will not tell you to “drop” your medication and run out and pull some leaves off a plant in your garden. But I will tell you 10 plants that have healing powers and you just may want to approach your Doctor and ask he/she if the plant can be used in place of the medicine, or in conjunction with it.

I will tell you the plant and some information about it. You just may be pleasantly surprised.

#1: Aloe Vera

This amazing plant has a plethora of healing properties. It has been used topically to treat:

  • Burns
  • Rashes
  • Cold sores
  • Hair moisturizer
  • and much more

And when a person ingests Aloe Vera, it can boost your immune system, help digestion and has been known to improve diabetes symptoms.

#2: Basil

Basil has been known to help flatulence sufferers.

This great herb can also help aleve a lack of appetite, as well as various cuts and scrapes.

#3: Peppermint

Many over-the-counter medicines have menthol integrated in them.

Well, menthol comes from plants within the peppermint family.

Known to relieve headaches, and cramping just from the odor, you can also drink tea from the leaves to relieve an upset stomach. And some people rub the leaves on their skin to relieve rashes and other skin issues.

#4: Alfalfa

Don’t farmers feed alfalfa to their cows?

Yes, and that is why you should ingest it too!

Alfalfa is super rich in minerals and nutrients. Some of the conditions that alfalfa has helped humans:

  • kidney stones
  • urinary infection
  • nausea
  • morning sickness

Alfalfa also provides a boost of energy.

#5: Calendula

It is a flower you can find growing in gardens all over the United States. And you can use these flowers to relieve any throat, mouth or stomach problems. Just steep some flowers in boiling water and rinse your mouth, or make a tea.

Calendula is also known to help heal minor skin wounds just by rubbing the flowers on the wound.

#6: Nettle (Stinging)

It is a plant that many gardeners detest because of the way it creates a burning rash if you get it on your skin.

But with a short boil, the stinging properties go away and you will be eating one of the most nutritious plants on Earth.

The USDA tells us that 1 cup of cooked nettles will supply:

  • Over 2 grams of protein – Very high for a green, leafy plant food
  • Over half of your daily need of calcium
  • and over 1/3rd of the Vitamin A your body requires

So don’t curse those nettles, put on gloves and enjoy!

#7: Cinnamon

Here is another amazing plant. Did you know that the cinnamon you ingest comes from the bark of the Cinnamon tree?

In ancient days, cinnamon was more valuable than gold. It has shown magnificent benefits that include:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Cancer fighter
  • Antioxidant
  • Immunity boosting
  • And much more…

#8: Lavender

Just whiffing the delicious fragrance from lavender creates a soothing effect like no other. It can also help relieve pain and is an antiseptic.

#9: Rosemary

Using this wonderful herb in cooking and even tea can enhance your memory functions. Scientists are even studying the possibilities of Rosemary helping Alzheimer’s patients.

There is even a potential of cancer treatment. This is an herb you should not leave out of your diet.

#10: Hemp

Now I would not suggest growing this in your yard unless you are in one of the few States where it is legal.

And I am also not speaking here of smoking a joint that puts you in a different state of mind.

You see, experts have found a way to extract the amazing health and pain relief properties from hemp while keeping out the substance that causes euphoria… THC.

I know of a legal hemp product…CBD Oil. Find out more about this oil here.


These are only 10 plants that can heal.

There are many more and I will delve into more in a later post.

But I suggest you use the ones I listed here today and discover all the amazing benefits.

Let’s here your thoughts and questions. You can post them below.

Thanks for stopping in and may your health be great!

What Is The Root Cause Of Disease?

root cause

If we were to put a bunch of doctors and scientists in a large conference room and asked this question, the room could turn into a chaotic debate. For years upon years, these high-minded individuals have been creating theories on the root causes of diseases.

Now, I am not a doctor or a scientist, but as a wellness coach and personal trainer, I do keep abreast of information and education regarding diseases and how to defend ourselves against them.

How do we determine the root cause of disease?

After all, there are a plethora of diseases. How can one single root be the cause of so many diseases?

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Hepatitis
  • and many more

But there is a root cause that can lead to any of these diseases. The root cause is…

Lifestyle Choices

lifestyle choicesIt does really come down to how each and every one of us live our lives. It started before you were even born with the lifestyle choices of your parents.

How your parents treated their bodies… how they ate, exercised, and the conditions they lived in can directly effect your abilities to defend against diseases.

Since we have no control over the lifestyle choices of our parents, it is important that once we reach an age of accountability, we take a close look at our lifestyle choices to determine if they could cause major medical issues in the future.

Intervention For Your Health

In my opinion, it is the responsibility of each of us who know the truth to gently and professionally intervene when we see our friends, family and even strangers living an unhealthy lifestyle.

Intervention can be in the form of:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Physical training
  • Stress management
  • Etc…

But, intervention must be form someone who consistently lives the lifestyle they are promoting.

After all, it would be like a person who smokes cigarettes telling a person that smokes cigars that it is bad for their health.

So, before intervening in another person’s lifestyle, you should first review your own.


So essentially, diseases are formed from improper lifestyle choices. But some of those choices are impossible to completely change.

toxinsI speak of being in positions of toxic intake.

  • Pollution
  • Employment where others are sickly
  • Toxins in water and food
  • Etc…

Some experts believe the underlying root of disease are germs. While germs are a factor, we will always have them and our bodies were designed to fight off those germs.

But toxic substances like mentioned in the bullet points were not a part of the germ warfare battle. Our bodies were not prepared to fight the man-made toxins we find on Mother Earth.

So, you should try to take every precaution possible to help your body not ingest as many toxins. This can be accomplished by wearing masks, staying clear of highly toxic areas, etc…

It also means be completely aware of the foods and drinks you are ingesting. Read labels and learn what is good for you and what isn’t.


I have great respect for Dr. Axe and I consulted his website to see his thoughts on this important subject.

I found this article, and wanted to add my input. The first paragraph says a lot:

Dr. Tanya Edwards, director of the Center for Integrative Medicine, writes that inflammation is now recognized as the “underlying basis of a significant number of diseases.”

Had you ever considered that inflammation is the cause of disease?

I was always of the opinion that inflammation was a symptom of the disease.

But that article points out some interesting information.

Our bodies were designed to fight off harmful bacteria and germs. This is done using inflammation. So, inflammation can be a good thing. It let’s our brain know that we must give certain areas of our bodies the attention it desperately needs.

So how does inflammation become a cause of disease?

The body and the inflammation feature of it were designed to withstand just a “certain” amount of toxins.

Humankind has overdone it!

The foods we eat, liquids we drink, air we breathe and company we keep are taking our toxin levels to astronomical levels.

Our immune systems go into overdrive and inflammation is released to defend against everything coming in. But, what happens is what they call in the military, “friendly fire.”

Inflammation takes over when the area is actually healthy. It causes cellular breakdown and the inflammation can actually allow entrance of a disease.

While there is no actual evidence yet, it is guaranteed that scientists are looking at the similarities to an overactive immune system and cancer.

The Positive Side

I did not start this post with the intent of it sounding like a lose/lose situation.

There is a way to win this battle!

It all comes back to lifestyle… Follow these tips, and you will win…

  • Eat anti-inflammatory foods like Acai, Nuts and Seeds, and green foods.
  • Stay clear of processed and fast foods.
  • Exercise regularly.
  • Get proper sleep.

And, I should add… You need support!

As a health and wellness fanatic, I have dreams of helping the world lose weight, have less stress and live longer lives. I coach people and have witnessed some amazing feats.

Don’t go it alone… I can help.

Magnesium Deficiency And You

Do you sometimes feel sluggish? Estimates say that upwards of 70-80% of the population is suffering from magnesium deficiency.

But I take multivitamins and minerals

That is the common answer and people need to realize the magnesium integrated into many of these is a magnesium that does not absorb very well into the person.

Let me explain further….

magnesium deficiency

Magnesium Is A Workhorse

What was unknown just years ago has been discovered. A study was published in BMC Bioinformatics showing how each human has over 3,700 binding sites in their bodies for magnesium.

This means that magnesium holds more duties and benefits than previously known. It also means we use up that magnesium quicker.

We need to replenish it.

Some Magnesium Deficiency Symptoms

While there is one test that is used quite often to check for magnesium levels, it primarily checks serum magnesium, which is stored magnesium. If it shows low, it means you have a severe deficiency.

Some symptoms you should pay attention too are:

  • High anxiety – Magnesium binds to the calmness neurotransmitters.
  • Low or high blood sugar – Magnesium plays a huge role in insulin sensitivity.
  • Terrible sex life – Low magnesium acts like a castration device on men.
  • Lack of energy – This can be a sure sign.
  • Poor memory – Low magnesium can effect the mental ability to remember.

Finding The Magnesium Supplement That Is Right For You

You can find many various magnesium supplements on the market…

  • Magnesium Oxide
  • Magnesium Citrate
  • Magnesium Sulfate
  • Magnesium Chloride

But these are ones that do not absorb very well. They are primarily used as laxatives.

Dr Axe tells us that he suggests not using Magnesium Oxide at all because it can turn into Magnesium Hydoxide in your body and can do damage to the walls of your intestine.

Like they say, you get what you pay for.

High Quality Magnesium Supplements

Look for these supplements to get a better supply of magnesium in your body:

Magnesium Threonate

You will probably find this costly, but it is the most absorbable magnesium supplement on the market. It has shown great wonders on memory loss and erratic sleep patterns.

Magnesium Malate

This is the magnesium supplement that can help those who are suffering from chronic fatigue or low energy issues.

Since magnesium gets depleted during exercise, many have included this as a post work-out supplementation.

Magnesium Glycinate

This magnesium supplement supports good health of the liver.

Magnesium Orotate

This has shown a huge role in supporting the cardiovascular system.

Magnesium Taurate

This magnesium supplement also is beneficial for your heart.

Getting Yourself Back To Optimum Magnesium Levels

The thing that many people do not understand is, once you are low on magnesium, you will continue using any magnesium that you supplement your body with.

The way to get your system back to the optimum levels is to pump up the amount of magnesium until you are back to level. You should take full dosages daily

You should seek a Dr’s advice before supplementing your body.

6 Months

That’s right… It can take up to 6 months to bring magnesium levels back once you are low. This comes through supplementing and eating a diet rich in magnesium filled foods.

Foods High In Magnesium

I am going to provide you with a rundown of foods you want to integrate into your diet because they are high in magnesium.

Keep in mind that you will usually find that these foods are best purchased from all organic farms. There is a much better chance their farmland is not depleted of magnesium in the soil as is conventional farms.

Here are the foods…

  • Spinach
  • Chard
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Yogurt
  • Almonds
  • Avocado
  • Bananas

All green, leafy vegetables hold high concentrations of magnesium.

So don’t leave salads out of your diet.


We hear all about major Vitamins, but Minerals like Magnesium are often neglected. It just makes sense that you have every thing your body requires.

I know of a high quality magnesium supplement that will help you get back to proper levels.

Just click here and see more about this great magnesium supplement.

Do you have any questions? Feedback?

Just post it below and I will get back with an answer.

Five Ways To Promote A Longer, Healthier Life


With Billions of people in the world, and many health and wellness conditions – that range from serious health issues such as Heart disease to Diabetes, to Obesity and Depression, and all in – between, (not that any of these conditions are in specifics of a particular order of greater importance to another), a number of questions come to mind…

  • Was the person born with this condition
  • What preventions could be taken
  • Can the person still participate in a happy, healthy lifestyle


An apple a day keeps the Doctor away, we have all heard the expression, but have we really “thought” about its true meaning? This (so-called) 150-year-old nursery rhyme is actually a benefit for the populous of tested 50-year old’s and older given in 2013, in the UK. The results concluded that “An apple a day” would retard or even add postponement to Vascular deaths, heart attacks, and strokes.


If you are suffering from any of these conditions, you may want to consider the benefits that exercise can offer:

  • Loss of sexual drive
  • Depression and anxiety
  • ADHD
  • PTSD
  • Physical well being

The benefits are many, for such a small price as 20 minutes a day, even a 15-20-minute walk twice a day will make a great difference in your health.

Other benefits from exercise include:

  • Improving your balance
  • Can help in the manageability of Osteoporosis, Diabetes, as well as Heart disease
  • Physical strength
  • Over all being

When beginning a daily routine of exercise, it is highly recommended to consult with your physician if you have been diagnosed with a health condition prior, as to exactly what is safe to participate in.

Keep in mind that exercise does not have to consist of a gym membership, massive amounts of military push-up’s, or swimming laps in a pool. With agreement from your Dr. if needed, you can start slowly and build, using such exercises techniques as:

  • Sit -ups (10 to begin)
  • Push-ups (5 to begin)
  • Crunches (5 to begin)

These reps can be done as you awake in the morning, and prior to bedtime for results. As your strength builds, add a few more as you continue onward.

#3. Healthy Eating

Foods that are healthy for us play a large role in the significance of warding off sickness, health issues, as well as depression.

When we consider healthy habits of eating, we recognize, as well as remember, the pyramid food group we learned of as children:

  • Grains
  • Proteins/Meat
  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Dairy

As we reach adulthood, some things may have changed, such as being lactose intolerant (dairy), or in some cases of diabetes, certain fruits may contain too much sugar (even though it is natural).

There is now a high percentage of vegetarians as well as veganism, which would make some of the pyramid useless as well.

The truth of the matter is this, one cannot live on potato chips alone! Your body craves good wholesome foods, treat it properly, it’s the only one you have.


There are a number of unhealthy dangers to that pertain to stress, and chronic stress can possibly bring one’s demise. Levels of cortisol (the stress hormone), that become heightened have proven to cause memory loss, lack of learning ability, interfere with the immune system, raise blood pressure and trigger heart disease.

The only way to ward stress off is learning to control it prior to its controlling of you. The first major questions to ask yourself are: what is the contributing factor to your stress, are there more than one, when did this stress begin, and what can I do to make my stress stop.

In acknowledging that there are stressful situations (small or large) is a huge step in your journey to become stress free.

Here are some more suggestions:

  • Meditation prior to the beginning of your day
  • Exercise
  • Learning breathing techniques to slow heart rate

#5. Find your happy place

Sounds simplistic, doesn’t it? But statistics prove that finding, or (creating) your happy place in life will promote a euphoria that assists in one’s overall well-being. Finding things that calm you after a hard day, or, in dealing with life’s expectations, can add years to your life. Something positive to think about, visiting a place or person who always brings out the best in you are a few examples to finding your happy place.


When taking care of ourselves, it consists of more then taking care of the body alone. We must take care of the mind and the over-all, well-being of ourselves as well. In doing this, we must learn to take control of our own livelihood, such as healthy food intake habits, learning to live in a productive, stress free environment that we create for ourselves, and, knowing of the importance of exercise and its benefits. Furthermore, knowing, as well as wanting, to find happiness in our life, is the beginning to living a healthy life.
