Holistic Health with Helen Vella

Holistic Health with Helen Vella

Are you healthy? Do you lead a healthy life? What the heck does it mean?

Many of us are struggling with the difficulty to lead what we believe (or what others make us believe) a HEALTHY life. Is it about drinking a smoothy in the morning? Or about not smoking? What else?

In this episode of CONNECTIONS we want to explore health from a much broader perspective and include as many aspects as possible which then can lead to a more -holistic- understanding of life and what health means. Our guest Helen Vella is an expert in the field and we are very happy to have that conversation with her.

Helens Book – Tap and Grow Rich


Helen was born in Scotland to poor, working class parents. She is the eldest of six children and her childhood was far from happy. Her mother’s physical and emotional abuse did nothing for her self-esteem or self-worth.

helen-vellaFrom an early age, she was determined to break out of the poor neighborhood and lifestyle and make something of herself.

She moved to Australia in her teens and started her own business which she sold 5 years later for a very nice profit. Helen learned how to love herself and start building on her self-esteem with the help of an amazing mentor and very good friends.

Throughout her life she has strived to be better and better every day and continues to learn and grow each day. When she became a mother, she made sure that she did not treat her daughter the same way she was treated growing up. Being a grandmother is one of her favorite things in life.

EFT, Law of Attraction, NLP and a host of other amazing tools are now part of her everyday life. When she discovered how all of these tools helped her manifest a great career, vacations, and happiness, she wanted to share this with everyone.

When she moved to the United States in 2005, she started to write her first book From Negative to Positive which is part memoir, part self-help guide explaining how she managed to get out of poverty and into abundance.

Helen suffered a major back injury and lost everything she made. This has not stopped her. She went from not being able to walk for almost nine months to writing several books, running workshops, working with clients and using all the tools she teaches to manifest her abundance again.

Using all her holistic tools to gain full health again, Helen speaks and teaches how others can do the same. Through personal sessions, phone, skype, email, group sessions and seminars. Also through all of her self-help books which are all available on

Food as medicine for health and well being with Dolores Storness-Bliss

Dolores CookingDolores has a remarkable but simple story to tell about food made from scratch. It is healthier and taste better, done in an organized way makes her clients life better.

Dolores’ Story

Growing up in a large family on a small farm in the 50’s & 60’s gave me, what I believe to be, the best possible upbringing. My parents grew and made most of the food that we ate. My mother cooked the majority of our food from scratch using the whole foods that the farm produced. I learned from an early age where real food came from and what it looked and tasted like. I developed a love and connection to the earth and nature which has been part of my core being ever since my childhood. It was from those beginnings that I went out into the world.

When I entered university, in the late 60’s, processed food was becoming a household convenience. For my generation of educated professional women entering the workforce, the convenience of processed food seemed to be a Godsend. We could work and feed ourselves and our families without spending long hours in the kitchen. Fortunately for me, a new style of eating was also making its way into the food landscape and that was vegetarianism.

See the live event here on Thursday April 28, at 12.30 pm EST

My husband had travelled to India to study yoga and we met at University after his return. He was a vegetarian and when we became engaged I also adopted the vegetarian lifestyle. In those days there was no pre-packaged vegetarian food so I proceeded to learn a completely different style of cooking. It was through this that I realized how much I loved cooking delicious and healthy food from scratch and sharing my creations with others. My husband loved my cooking too.

Dolores 1Through the following years of career and raising a family our meal choices shifted. Although I still cooked most of our food from scratch, at times we succumbed to the convenience of processed food. At the same time information started to surface about the health hazards of margarine and preservatives and artificial flavours & colours.

However, it wasn’t until my four year old refused to eat anything but pizza pops that I realized something had to change.

The day she refused her supper and demanded a pizza pop, guilt washed over me like a huge wave, and all my self pride about cooking from scratch, crashed on the rocks. Here I was, so busy and disorganized that I had let my children’s health slip to such a low priority that I was feeding them pizza pops. At that moment I resolved to eliminate processed foods from our table. It meant prioritizing my time and planning healthy snacks. Processed foods disappeared and healthy home cooked became the alternative.

It was also around this time I had the opportunity to open a health food store with my sister in law. I was trained and worked as a teacher but had always had an interest in owning my own health food store. This was a dream come true. By the time I entered the health food business, North American food production had become big business. Farming had shifted out of the hands of small independent farmers into big factory farms where profit was more important than health.

Processed & fast food had become a way of life for many families. Diseases had become rampant and people were starting to turn to natural sources in the effort to find cures. Research was showing the detrimental effects of processed fast food, pesticides and inhumane animal husbandry on the health of Western nations.

Organic and natural farming, were starting to appear as an alternative. When I was growing up we never used terms like organic or natural farming. It was just called food, grown the way our ancestors grew it. It was with this knowledge of what has become of our food supply and it’s catastrophic effects on our health that I felt the desire to use my skills and love of cooking and provide something better.

In 2004, my husband and I sold Health In Order Natural Foods and opened an organic cafe called Nature’s Garden Organic Deli at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. For ten years I cooked and served organic real food to the faculty, staff, students and residents at SFU. It was during those years that I was able to put into practice my love for cooking and creating healthy real food meals. I learned skills & strategies for planning and preparing food for our many loyal customers. They loved the healthy options that we provided.

Our cafe was one, amongst the dozens of fast food establishments on campus, and we soon gained popularity. It was through interacting with my customers at Nature’s Garden that I realized so many people wanted good healthy food but were too busy to cook for themselves. They didn’t have time to plan menus or learn to cook, so they ate out or picked up prepared food on the way home.

After 10 years of loving cooking and providing healthy options for our beloved customers it was time to retire from the long 14 hour days and to look after ourselves. We sold Nature’s Garden and moved to be close to our children and granddaughter. Over the years that we owned Nature’s Garden many people had requested their favourite recipes and I promised to write a cookbook when we sold the business.

I wrote an eCookbook called Nature’s Garden Favourites. However, It was difficult to walk away from 10 years of building and nurturing our business and our customers. When the cookbook was finished I realized that I wanted to offer more. I have a desire to help busy people find simple ways to shift from fast processed foods to cooking healthy meals for themselves and their families.

To that end, I have created a project called ‘Meals in a Weekend Workshop’ where participants work their way through a planned weekly menu using step by step instructions to cook and prepare their food for the week. The workshop takes them through 4 weeks of guided menus.

Through the guidance they become less stressed and start to establish a routine around meal preparation. Through simple recipes and instructions they start to gain confidence in their ability to cook. At the same time they gradually start planning their next months meals so that by the time the Workshop is completed they already have a month’s worth of menu plans in advance.

Higher Brain Living: Neuroscience’s Revolutionary Breakthrough – with Craig Polsfuss (by Heidi Hornlein)

In the last few decades neuroscience has made huge progress. We know today so many things about how our brain functions and why certain methods and practices can influence our brains. The eastern meditative traditions knew much of that intuitively from direct experience, now our western science “catches up” and shows us the material events happening in our brains when change  happens. And we want to change our lives towards the better, don’t we? So we need to find a way to influence our mindsets we are living in. As most of it is unconscious, we cannot do it just by DECIDING to do so and use our WILL power. Transformation happens on a deeper level and we need to be guided on our way. We need to learn to live on “higher vibrations”, as we often hear in the New Age scene. How do we do it?

In this weeks episode we have invited +Craig Polsfuss who is engaged in higher brain living and will introduce you to this amazing approach to realizing our higher potential.

About Higher Brain Living:
After 30 years of researching modern science and ancient wisdom, Dr. Michael Cotton discovered a mind-body “touch point” code that opens and completes mind-brain circuitry for optimal health and functioning.
No other known method produces such a powerful organic energy surge to the pre-frontal cortex – the most highly evolved part of the brain made for change and high-end experience, functioning and consciousness.
Higher Brain Living amplifies all other productive practices, like meditation, yoga, fitness, etc.

Craig PolsfussAbout +Craig Polsfuss
He is holistic psychologist and Director of Professional Outreach & Education for Higher Brain Living, will introduce and discuss this profound advancement. Change agents looking for the next level of transformation – personally, professionally and globally – should especially attend.

“Each person is far more than they realize. My aim is to help awaken those interested to a living realization of this, and an opportunity to join a growing team of others doing the same.” Craig Polsfuss
