You can’t heal, what you won’t reveal…Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”

Your mental health is crucial on this high to low ride called life. Experiencing any type of hurt or trauma is something we can’t avoid. Sometimes the wounds and the hurt we experince are excruciating to the point that, we must find the strength to open the wounds, stick our hands inside and pull out the core of the pain that is holding on.

Until you heal, you will bleed on other people and continue to live life in a cycle of defeat. Some wounds run deep but in order to heal, you must reveal what has hurt you.

Join host Ms. Tracy L. Bell at 6:30 p.m. EST on “Conversations Of A Sistah” as we continue to honor Women’s History month with health Holistic Mental Wellness Practitioner, Ms. Shwanna Loyd (pictured left) for our topic “You can’t heal what you won’t reveal

Bishop Eddie Long

God Has Healed Bishop Eddie Long (It’s a Miracle)

bishop-eddie-long-550x307Bishop Eddie Long is back from the brink of death. Rumor had it that Long was suffering from an aggressive form of cancer of the small intestine.

Speculation ran rampant after Long, 63, published a Facebook video attempting to explain his sudden weight loss. Rumor mongers even said he flew to the jungles of Colombia to seek a miracle cure. Well now he’s back, and he’s looking better and healthier than ever.

In a new YouTube video, Long shared his blessings with his congregation at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

I had some health issues and God has healed me,” he said, as his congregation cheered wildly.

As his wife, Vanessa Griffin, stood by his side, Long called for pain sufferers to “jump in the aisle”.

I declare pain can not bombard the temple of the Holy Ghost,” he said.

The father-of-4 called for pain sufferers to meet him at the altar.

Many in the audience stepped forward as the Lord used Eddie Long as a healing vessel.

“Being Healthy and Clean in 2016″…7 Natural Foods That Detox The Liver!

DetoxAt the beginning of a New Year, getting healthier and detoxing seem to be on most individual’s agendas. While fasting and detoxing are excellent ways to rid the body of toxins, detoxing the liver should be an ultimate priority. Especially if you consume alcohol periodically.

The liver is a vital organ of the human anatomy and performs multiple critical functions to keep the body pure of toxins and harmful substances.

Unfortunately, everyday toxins like medications and alcohol can overload the liver, reducing its functioning ability and negatively impacting your health. Fortunately, there are many natural foods that detox the liver, and chances are you already have them in your kitchen.

Here are seven (7) natural foods to detox your liver:

  1. Lemons: Commonly used in natural medicinal remedies, lemons are loaded with nutrients that are our bodies need, including fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium. They also contain bioflavonoids, which are antioxidants that help to cleanse the blood, detoxify the liver, and make the immune system strong. Drink the juice of half a lemon with some water daily to detox your liver.
  2.  Green Tea: (which is my all time favorite) and is widely considered one the healthiest beverages you can drink, and nutrition experts agree. To make green tea, the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant are used. These leaves are rich in catechins, a kind of antioxidant that studies show prevents fat accumulation and facilitates detoxification. Drink 4-5 cups of green tea daily to detox your liver. Keep in mind that it does contain caffeine.
  3.  Artichokes: another nutrient-dense food that cleanses the liver and purifies the blood. In fact, artichoke extracts have been prescribed by doctors for patients with liver problems since the 1800s. Plus, modern researchers have found that the phytonutrients cynarin and silymarin protect and regenerate liver cells and increase the production of bile. Artichoke can also help stabilize blood sugar.
  4.  Turmeric: (a spice that I add to everything daily) one of the main components of curry powder, has long been used as an effective healing remedy. The spice’s anti-inflammatory properties and health-boosting nutrients work together to improve liver function (among other things), and the curcumin in turmeric is a potent phytochemical that stimulates bile production. Bile is used by the liver to rid the body of toxins and restore liver cells.
  5.  Avocados: They are also nutrient-rich and help the body to produce glutathione (aka the mother of all antioxidants), which the body needs for liver detoxification and regeneration. If you’re worried about the high fat content, don’t, as avos contain monounsaturated fats. These are healthy fats that in moderation actually help reduce bad cholesterol and lower your risk of heart disease.
  6.  Onions: Especially “RED ONIONS” are best for detoxing the liver and my onion of choice for everything that I cook, especially veggie burgers. they contain sulfur, a chemical compound that opens up the liver’s sulfation pathways and enables the body to release accumulated toxins.
  7.  Cabbage: Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable that is high in sulfur and provides vitamins K, C, folate, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Due to its high glucosinolate and chlorophyll content, cabbage activates important detoxifying enzymes and strengthens the liver. Generally, green cabbage is best (especially raw and organic), but any type of cabbage is good for detoxing the liver and will promote health.

Happy detoxing!! The benefits are a healthy start to practice throughout the year!

Conversations Of A Sistah, Holistic Health, Natural healing, Queen Afua, Supa Nova

“Supa Nova and Queen Afua” Mother & Son Holistic Duo tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


The holistic approach to prostate health attempts to correct underlying conditions through many different modalities. It involves diet, nutritional habits, natural medicines, lifestyle, stress levels, exercise, and personal hygiene. Men in other parts of the world, particularly Europe, commonly use natural medicines and successfully avoid prostate surgery and drugs. And now mainstream urologists are starting to hear about these therapies, because the science is extremely sophisticated and the results are impressive.

So why haven’t you heard more about these therapies, then? Because these natural medicines, which cannot be patented, aren’t profitable enough to large drug companies. Since drug companies can’t make big profits on natural substances, they don’t put the money into the research or the advertising necessary to put a natural medicine on the map.

Join me tonight at 8:00 PM on “Conversations Of A Sistah” via “Conversations Live” for my duo guest, Queen Afua (pictured above), an internationally renowned holistic health specialist with over 30 years of experience teaching the art, science and joy of Natural Living. 

Queen is the author of best-sellers: Heal Thyself for Health and Longevity, and Sacred Woman: A Guide to Healing the Feminine Body, Mind and Spirit and The City of Wellness: Restoring Your Health Through The Seven Kitchens of Consciousness.


And her son Supa Nova (pictured here), who is also an author, activist, hip-hop artist, and following in his mother’s footsteps as a holistic practitioner. An active duty soldier returning from a tour in Afghanistan, his nutritional plan for success has continually enrich and energized the lives of his fellow soldiers. With the release of his first book entitled “The Remedy” he shares his journey and passion for living a comprehensive healthy life.

Join me tonight as they will discuss “The Man’s well-being and a holistic approach to prostate health.”
