Do we really have 22 different senses?

A woman who I met sitting next to me at my Visionary Business Mastery conference last week blew my mind. She casually mentions that humans have up to 22 different senses. Besides the main five senses; vision, hearing, touch, taste, smell and then thanks to the movie, we discovered the sixth sense. What else is out there?

As I dove into this concept a bit deeper, I found this diagram.

If you have worked with me, you know that I have you practice observing your senses, body’s signals, cravings and taste buds before you prepare a meal. Even when someone asks me a simple question, I have to take into consideration the MANY aspects of what is going on in the physical, emotional and mental body before I can answer.

For example: What foods help with brain function? Super simple question and with technology today, I should just google and send over a list.

Instead, I ask…

  • What else is going on in your life during certain times of your day that leaves your brain feeling depleted?
  • Do you notice mental exhaustion after certain meals?
  • Are you sleeping straight through the night?
  • What strong cravings are you having in the middle of the day?
  • What other issues could be considered more of the cause and the tired brain is the result. 

All of these inquiries help you tune into the body and reveal what organs need more support. We are considering how to support your body as a whole versus trying to piece together what you are truly missing. How do you go about finding answers in regards to your body? Are you asking the right questions?

One of my favorite programs to help you take away the static so you can understand and decipher your senses is the Conscious Nutrition RESET program. I paused group programs last year and guess what, we are bringing it back! Just in time for spring cleaning and the day after taxes. (April 16th, 2018 @ 5 pm PST)

During the 3-week RESET you will release some foods that may be hindering you from understanding what your body truly needs. We practice with different nutritional and healing modalities such as Vegan, Intermittent Fasting, Ayurvedic and many more. We give you weekly step by step actions, recipes, meal plans, supplements and self care exercises to help you reconnect with your body.

When I am under stress I can crave things that aren’t what I need but this signal is providing me with information to give my body something that it does need. After the RESET you will be less inflamed, confused and more nourished. Some of your old habits will effortless go away and the ones will be easier to implement after the congestion is gone.

If you have any question you can join us to discuss this more at this month’s Heather’s Healthy Happy hour. Please join us Monday, March 19th @ 5 pm PST and email me for the information.

Or if you are ready for the spring Conscious Nutrition RESET: Join here, the sooner the better so I can send you the information to help you mentally prepare to get your spring cleaning groove on.

See you soon,

P.S. Here is what a past RESET client had to say…

I cannot thank you enough for ALL that you’ve done for me over the last few years! I have learned so much about nutrition and what works best for my body. I remember meeting you a few years ago and it didn’t take long for me to start feeling healthy and alive again! You have given me so many tools to use to make healthy decisions and have always been there to support me going through the process. I recently completed the 3-week reset program and loved it! It was a challenge, but the results were phenomenal! I’ll admit that six weeks is a pretty decent commitment and doing it during the summer was not easy, but for me it was the right amount of time to allow for adjustments in my nutritional plan to stick! Being allowed time to ease out of bad habits and re-introduce healthy ones worked for me. I didn’t feel rushed through the program, therefore no stress about obtaining the bi-weekly goals of the reset. I never felt depleted, but reinvigorated throughout the process. I had more energy and slept better as a result. The added bonus was a few pounds lost! I would highly recommend this program to your new clients and for anyone who needs a reset every now and then. I love working with you and your support is always genuine and reassuring. You have changed my life! Thank you for doing what you do!

Love and Blessings,

Rachel R.
