This is a wonderful time of year. Faith, Family, Friends & Food. But there’s also poor diet, over-indulgence, stress, lack of sleep, & seasonal illness. Our bodies, minds, and spirits often enter the New Year running on empty.
So how do you get back on track, and move through the remaining season with good health and grace? Here are some tips that may help:
1. Priority Management. How important is each thing you face? Will it matter in another week, month, or year? Start by scheduling time for YOU. Then make a short list of what really needs to be done that day. The other things can be moved to another time, delegated or eliminated.
2. Nourish your spirit. Daily devotions, prayer, and worship are the boosters of your core being.
3. Turn it over! With each stress, problem, or worry you face, Breathe, Pray, Prioritize, and know that God is in control!
4. Get enough sleep. 10 pm to 6 am is a great schedule for honoring your natural cycle. Quiet your mind and activity starting 1 hr. prior. Do not check your phone, computer or I-pad in the 60 min before bedtime. The light from the screen will interfere with your melatonin production and busy your mind.
Sleep in a dark, quiet, well-ventilated room, free of EMFs (unplug, turn off wireless, move devices to another room). Use a sleep mask and ear plugs if light & noise are factors.
5. Eat Healthy food. Eat the rainbow of colors, lots of veggies & fruits, whole foods and eliminate the junk and fake ingredients. Substitute healthier, whole food ingredients in your favorite recipes. Use lots of herbs and spices. If you make 2 or 3 better choices each day, that will accumulate to 60 to 90 better choices in the next month. That makes a huge difference regarding weight, immune system, mood & overall health.
Eating out at restaurants, other people’s homes and various parties can be a danger zone. Try sampling small portions of food. Watch the empty calories, sugar, fat. Focus on the healthier, colorful, whole food options. Drink lots of water. Choose the simplest drinks.
6. Utilize Healing Techniques. Essential Oils, Massage, Exercise, Stretching, Saunas, Energy Work, Chiropractic, Colonics can all be helpful.
7. Light Detox: Select 1 day a week or 1 weekend each month to prioritize your health.
- Breath Deeply, exercise, stretch, dry brush & take a detox bath
- Fresh Veggie Juice & 1 Wheatgrass shot or powdered green drink
- 16 oz. of Green Smoothie (recipe & video at www.juicefast.info)

Jeanette’s journey through 6 recurrences of cancer, failed standard medical treatment, and being told she only had a “couple months to live” led her to visit numerous alternative healing centers across the country.
This increased her faith in God’s healing power, the need to be educated and take personal responsibility. It is not easy to make lifestyle and diet changes, but they are necessary to gain and maintain optimal health. Many of these principals are clearly laid out in scriptures (eg. peace, rest, forgiveness, reliance on God, nourishment).
Trusting God as her strength and provision, Jeanette left a highly successful commercial real estate career in South Florida and entered the Wellness Ministry. In 1999, Jeanette graduated from the Health Educator program at the world-renowned Hippocrates Health Institute. She then founded the Wellness Education Center, to empower others with knowledge.
In 2000, Jeanette and husband Randy moved to the Flathead Valley, feeling God’s call to this healing environment. Since 2001, Jeanette has led over 3,500 people in 177 Guided Juice Fast programs and performed thousands of consultations.
In 2005, WEC moved to its current location on Hwy. 93 at Ponderosa Estates. It offers various alternative healing modalities including Wellenss & Nutrition consultations, Essential Oils, Gentle Chiropractic, Massage Therapy, Colon-Hydrotherapy, Biofeedback and Thermography.
Jeanette’s Motto: The foundation of healing is to detox, re-nourish and balance the body, mind, spirit and environment. Faith and education empower the individual and open the door for continued improvement over the entire life. “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge”, Hosea 4:6.
Jeanette Cheney’s Sample Daily Plan
I make dietary choices based on the “bank account” principal. “Deposits vs. withdrawals”. The better my health and current life situation, the more withdrawals I can afford. In other times, I need to build up by deposit account. But overall, the trend needs to be to the plus side.
I also make decisions based on colors and food groups. Have I had something green, red, yellow, orange, purple yet today? Have I eaten veggies, nuts, seeds, beans, legumes and healthy fats? What deposits have I made so far today?
Here is what my typical day looks like:
Upon Arising: 16 oz. of purified water (can add minerals). Followed about 30 min later with the Green Smoothie (recipe below). 16 oz.
Mid Morning: Healthy, high protein meal. Hot Tea or Dandy Blend. Usually one of the following:
- Sprouted nuts, seeds, grains
- Organic eggs with veggies
- Sprouted grain or Gluten Free bread with nut butter or hummus
Lunch: 30 min. prior, drink 16 oz. water.
Then choose from:
- Soup (raw is best and easy to make)
- Veggies and Hummus
- Veggie Burger
Snacks: Seeds, sea veggies, organic food bar, veggies, fruit, hot tea, fresh juice.
Dinner: 30 min. prior, drink 16 oz. water.
Then choose from:
- Salad based meal topped with healthy protein.
- Vegetarian choices: Peas, lentils, sprouted beans, veggie burger, tofu or avocado
- Salad topper: seeds, coconut shreds, dried fruit
Evening: Hot tea, mineral broth. Sometimes air-popped popcorn sprayed with olive oil & herb seasoning. I try not to eat past 8 pm (2 hrs. before 10 pm bedtime).
Bedtime: I mix 32 oz. of water with mineral fizz that contains magnesium. I drink additional if I get up in the night. I finish the balance upon awakening
