Episode Summary Re-cap

In today’s show, Heather Dane and her guest, Feng Shui expert and bestselling author, Terah Kathryn Collins revealed how to approach your home and other environments so that you can feel your best. In this show, we discussed how to identify patterns of disharmony in your environment and how to shift the energy for health, happiness and harmony.


The lists above build on our show from last week.

It’s important to nourish your nervous system, immune system, gut and brain because HSPs tend to have issues in these areas from long-term stress. According to Chinese medicine, we take in energy from the outside world through our nervous systems (the back of our body). As you sense energy, your nervous system is being hit and it’s not uncommon for this to produce a stress response. Over time, this chronic stressor can fray the nervous system.

These supplements are very helpful to bring your nervous system back to good health. They also nourish your immune system, gut and brain.


Anderson’s Concentrated Mineral Drops (also called Sea MD) – work up to 1 dropperful per day, taking it slowly.

Lemon Water Drink

  • 8 oz. water, ½ fresh squeezed lemon, ¼ tsp sea salt or if you are sensitive to sodium, try a product called Trace Minerals 40,000 Volts, which has a wide base of minerals with a little extra potassium.
  • If you have chronic fatigue, make sure you get potassium. Add Tart cherry juice concentrate or organic blackstrap molasses – 1 TBL (see article on mineral and adrenal support drink).

B Vitamins – B12, (B6, Biotin, methyl folate)

  • Methyl B12 and Adenosyl B12 (also called methylcobolamin and adenosylcobolamin) – Seeking Health Active B12 lozenges is a sublingual version of both of these active forms of B12.
  • Methyl folate – this is the active form of folate. Folic acid is the synthetic form of folate and is not recommended because a high percentage of people can’t process it properly, so it build up, creating unpleasant symptoms. Some good brands are: Thorne 5-mthf or Seeking Health Liposomal 5-mthf
  • Biotin – biotin is a B vitamin that helps to cleanse the system. It’s been used to clear out candida and nourish hair, skin and nails. It can help support mineral balance. A good brand is Nutricology Biotin.


This Ayurvedic herb supports detox, digestive health and nervous system balance.

  • Triphala literally means “three fruits.” The three fruits contained in Triphala are Haritaki, Amalaki and Bibhitaki.
  • Balances stomach acid and supports muscles, liver, colon, eyes and skin.
  • Nourishes the digestive tract, reproductive system, immune system and nervous system
  • Helps with constipation and detoxification
  • Promotes longevity
  • Using the powder: Mix ½ teaspoon in 8 oz. water.

Evaluate Your Home and Bedroom for Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs)

These hit your nervous system and can cause chronic, low level stress. The highest sources of EMFs in the home: WiFi, cordless phones, baby monitors, cell phones. Smart Meters are also a high source of EMFs and are being added to the outside of homes by the electric companies to monitor electricity usage.

  • Turn off your WiFi at night – WiFi is one of the biggest sources of electromagnetic fields. Turning off the WiFi can help you sleep better, so that you can heal and restore your body at night.
  • Remove phones and electronics from your room.
  • Try not to sleep near electrical outlets.
  • Do not sit or sleep near Smart Meters or fuse boxes that are inside or outside your home.
