We are fortunate to have a number of health professionals in our Teeccino Ambassador program, and we recently received another great report from Annette Hottenstein, MS, RD, LDN, a Teeccino Ambassador and registered dietician who sees 3 – 5 clients a week in her new private practice, Sensational Sustenance. Annette is a food scientist and licensed dietician who works in corporate wellness and is now enjoying offering private counseling – and Teeccino herbal coffee samples – to her clientele! She told us:
“I gave out some Teeccino brochures and Tee-bag samples in several nutrition counseling sessions this week. They were well received! I work in corporate wellness and many of my patients perform shift work and rely heavily on caffeine.” Annette also said, “Teeccino has been a lifesaver for me!!!! It’s the first time I’ve been able to successfully get off of caffeine and my fifteen-year battle with chronic insomnia has ended. I have started my own counseling office (until now, I focused on corporate wellness). I just helped a client yesterday with Teeccino!” Read More
One year ago this month, Teeccino Ambassadors attended the very first online Ambassador Webinar, and started sharing Teeccino samples at their community events of all sizes! We were amazed at the variety of events we received requests for – from small groups like book clubs and office lunches…large health fairs and church socials…even vegan meetups and a sci-fi convention! We want to thank our Ambassadors so much for participating in this new program and making it so fun for us! We invite new readers to let us know if they would like to be an Ambassador too! You can find out more about the program here and read about some recent events with Ambassadors Sheryl, Fern and Kim -
Sheryl had a group of fifty at her Swim Club where she would be talking about the benefits of clean eating and the acidity of our diets.After the event, Sheryl told us: “People were Read More
Take a Mediterranean-loving girl like me and tell her no oil in your cooking, and it creates a complete mind freeze. Say what? I’m an olive oil devotee. Every dinner meal begins with fragrant onions turning translucent in olive oil. But when your beloved partner is threatened with a rare disorder for which the only possible recovery is via no oil or saturated fat, you learn quickly to adapt.
Fortunately, others have paved the way so recipe ideas have inspired me to new levels of creative cuisine. Plus, there is an upside – weight loss!
Women are at risk for developing breast cancer if we are exposed to too much estrogen during our lifetime. During the time of perimenopause, women become estrogen-dominant and may not produce enough progesterone in our monthly cycle to offset our estrogen production. Girls, who start menstruating at a young age, are also vulnerable to high estrogen exposure over the course of their lifetime.
“Unopposed” estrogen can create havoc causing sleepless nights, heavy blood flow, irritability, digestive disturbances, fuzzy minds, water retention with other PMS symptoms, sensitive breasts and weight gain. Endometriosis and uterine fibroids are signs that estrogen is out of control and that hormonal imbalances are occurring. Read More
Wanda just became an Ambassador and is off to a running start – with a Relay For Life evening event! When Wanda told us she was interested in being an Ambassador, we sent her a link to watch the Webinar. Wanda became a Teeccino Ambassador right away, did her event a couple weeks later and has already reported back! She told us:
“This was an American Cancer Society Relay for Life Event to help raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society. At this event a night was set aside to get the community involved. The cancer survivors came out to celebrate their victory over cancer. Everyone walked around the track for cancer. Cancer survivors and those who succumbed to the disease are recognized in a candlelight service and there was plenty of entertainment.”
Wow, it sounds like an amazing night for all, with such a positive message of healing for the community. About the response to Teeccino herbal coffee, Wanda told us:
“I was set up at the Survivor’s table and shared samples with survivors at first during the survivor’s reception and Read More
Did you know that May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month and we are going into tick season right now? Are you aware that although ticks have a season (mid-Spring to Fall), once someone has been infected with Lyme, the illness can be long-lasting and debilitating, requiring constant and vigilant medical attention? It is an unfortunate reality that affects more people than most of us realize, and like many other medical issues, often requires a lifestyle change to improve one’s condition. Besides reducing or quitting caffeine, of course one of the best changes a person can make is to surround themselves with more supportive friends. Britt – a Teeccino Ambassador since last year – is making it happen!
Britt recently hosted her second Ambassador event at her Lyme support group, and she tells us:
“I attended my monthly Lyme disease support group meeting. I did not brew any, but had literature, samples and spoke about the products. Many people were very interested, as most of us are on very healthy eating plans (and often face many food allergies) so they were excited at the thought of having a coffee substitute. One of the attendees was a doctor who is opening a Lyme disease clinic in Minneapolis – she took a few samples and Read More
