Hello, my name is Denise Borsari and I enjoy living a healthy and balanced lifestyle.  It was about ten years ago when I started focusing on eating healthy, exercising and really trying to find a way to balance my environment.    
I am fortunate that I have been relatively healthy but now that I am older, my body requires a lot more care. 

In the summer of 2007, I started having some dermatitis issues. My skin became inflamed and I could not stop scratching it to save my life.  The sun was the worst thing for my skin at that time, but I didn’t know that until it was too late. I was crushed because I didn’t realize how much I had taken for granted how nice my skin always looked in the summer.  That year, my skin had the vitiligo affect. I was devastated. After purchasing products that the dermatologist recommended and without achieving any results, I was on a mission to find something to cure my skin condition.

As a last resort, I took my first trip to the organic store.  How amazing that I could find something so simple and yet so natural that could actually solve my dermatitis issue.  
After this experience, I am very cautious of what products I use on my skin and stay clear of anything that is not chemical-free. 

As far as my diet, I strive to find ways to stay healthy by eating a good mixture of green vegetables, fruit and protein. 

Staying fit is a must for me, and make sure I exercise three days a week by either going for a run or do a cross-fit workout. 

As for my mind, meditating has been helpful for me.  I usually mediate 20-30 minutes every morning before I start my day.

As far as balancing my environment, I turned to feng shui.  Feng shui is a way to refresh my home by making it compatible for me and my family.  
Every year, I make sure my home is working for me and not against me.  Incorporating feng shui in my life has been a way to help me meet my goals and have a more fulfilled life.
Now that I am truly living an all-around healthy lifestyle, I am able to help other people re-energize, rejuvenate and refresh their life.
