Happy 2020 reading goals !

January 2020 is almost over – are you still wondering what your 2020 goals & resolutions are?    I am in the process of writing down what I want to accomplish in 2020.   I am adding reading more to my list.   There was a Global survey (13 countries) that came out recently that found 71% of participants who read weekly reported feeling happier and reading more frequent improves our relationships and helps us connect with others.

Hey I want to improve my relationships & connect with others.    Reading has long been a form of escape into a different world for me, especially when I was younger.  But now I only read to learn something new for my health business.  

The newest health book I have reviewed is about micronutrients.    Call me if you are interested in finding out which micronutrient you may be lacking – it’s a simple test, I do right in my office.

Anyway back to reading more and the Global study that was done recently. So how does reading improve your relationships? 41% of global couples say discussing books was one of the the things that made them fall in love with their significant other. And 1 in 3 readers turn to books to solve their relationship problems. Also, those 41% couples say romance books have helped enhance their relationships!

So here is a list of the top books to start reading:

  • To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee
  • 1984, by George Orwell
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, by J.K.
  • The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R.
  • The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
  • Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen.
  • The Diary Of A Young Girl, by Anne Frank.
  • The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak.

Happy Reading !

Cancer and Oxygen ?

What is it called when you see something then see it again? Is that a form of reinforcement that says REMEMBER THIS ? Let me explain what I ran across recently then saw it several more times!

I was researching breast cancer for a client and read some research from a *Master Herbalist that I study under.   Here’s what he found from studies done:

Cancer cells are anaerobic (relating to or requiring an absence of oxygen), which mean they live and thrive in a low oxygen environment.  They are able to get their energy by metabolizing nutrients, notable sugars and carbohydrates, without oxygen, in a fermentative process.   Cancer cells cannot survive in a high oxygen environment, so keeping the body well oxygenated inhibits cancer*. 

I did not know that oxygen played such a role in the disease of Cancer.

Then I was reading a book on fitness and wellness.    I am constantly reading something you know, a habit I picked up as a kid when I learned how to read.

In this book about fitness – it was talking about how important it is to breathe properly, particularly while exercising.   It stated that shallow breathing prevents your body from getting enough oxygen, which leaves you at risk for heart attacks, cancer, strokes and other diseases and will eventually lead to muscle atrophy and exercise intolerance*.

There was my Remember sign.  

I cannot help but refer to a therapy that I do in my office called Chi Machine* therapy.   The Chi machine is considered a passive aerobic exercise device that is actually FDA approved as a Class 1 Therapeutic Massager.    It works very simply through movement!      The developers of the Chi machine claim that it oxygenates the body via ‘passive aerobic exercise’ activating the lymphatic system, enabling detoxification, and aligns the spine due to the figure of eight motion caused by the specific oscillation of the machine.

I would highly recommend the Chi machine so please come by Green Rose Health to check it out.    Another way to get more oxygen is to practice deep breathing.    Deep breathing is one of the most beneficial exercises you can do for your body.  It increases oxygen to your cells and kicks your metabolism into high gear so you become more energized.    This will help you lose weight if necessary or maintain a healthy body weight!   

You can get double benefit by practicing your deep breathing while doing the Chi machine !

For more details – check out The Chi Machine tab on And Remember your sign to practice your deep breathing!

Back pain ?

In honor of National dog day – I would like to tell you that Micah Angelo (yes he’s Greek!!) – is the best dog ever! I know he was in a lot of pain but he never complained during the last month when he hurt his back so bad that he couldn’t urinate!! 3 vets, $800.00, 3 prescriptions, a week worth of catheters, and a Natural Back Pain Protocol later – he’s back to normal!!! The vet was amazed that he could even walk again without having surgery!! He’s a special 20 lb Yorkie, that I love!! Btw – the Natural Back Protocol came from me after thorough research from information I got from the local Vet hospital (Blue Pearl) & my knowledge of health supplements.

Article about Green Rose Health

This was an article published about me in the Edmond Sun newspaper on 5-22-2018.

Andrea Moon has been offering advice and supplements on natural health, wellness and nutrition at Green Rose Health for the last year and a half.

Elisabeth Slay | Special to the Sun  May 22, 2018


Colorful paintings of animals are scattered on the walls, and supplements and herbs line the shelves of Green Rose Health and Wellness store. These are accompanied by advice and knowledge on natural health which community members receive at the business located at 3720 E 2nd St, Edmond.

For more than two decades owner and wellness consultant Andrea Moon worked in the corporate world as a computer programmer but eventually realized her true passion.

“I was a programmer for 26 years and I decided to change my career and I was always fascinated with health,” Moon said.

Her new career began as she had meetings with a naturopathic consultant at her husband’s work who educated her on the art of natural health and wellness.

“I was fascinated with him and over the course of a couple of years I questioned him and found out about the schools and decided that’s what I wanted to do,” Moon said.

Upon making her choice, Moon said she attended Trinity College of Natural Health in which she received a Doctorate of Naturopathy in 2008 and a Master Herbalist degree in 2010.

“I quit my full time job in 2011 and discovered that natural health is very similar to being a programmer. Everything is a process and there are steps to natural health just like there are steps to being a programmer,” Moon said.

Being a naturopathic doctor is similar to being a teacher, Moon said, because naturopaths educate people on health and wellness.

“I do consultations, supplements, Reams testing, muscle response testing, emotional freedom technique. I do pet herbs and health,” Moon said.

In addition to these services Green Rose Health offers products including Oklahoma-based cannabidiol (CBD) oil, Colorado Hemp Oil, Natural Sunshine products and local art for visual pleasure.

“What I do is like maintenance. Like changing the oil in your car and I help you maintain your body,” Moon said.

As well as being a naturopathic consultant, Moon is a Certified Natural Health Practitioner. This means she is licensed and trained to provide advice on natural nutrition, emotional care, and physical care.

Green Rose Health opened a year and a half ago after Moon worked with other naturopathic doctors for three years at Conversations. She said she came up with the name Green Rose Health for the business because her grandmother loved roses and Moon’s favorite color is green. The retail location has provided her with more than just a solid physical foundation.

“I feel like I was doing this part time until a year and a half ago when I opened the store and really started doing this full time,” Moon said.

Moon has now lived and worked in Edmond for 45 years and hopes to help more residents with their natural health and wellness.

Most of the people who visit her store are looking for ways to become healthier or are already aware of wellness but Moon said she educates them on the three steps to being well.

“Nutrition is a big part of it, exercise and the third step is your emotional and mental attitudes. That is a big part of it (as well) and I just help people with those steps,” Moon said. “I really hope that people will have a better interest in wanting to be well because even though restaurants and places are promoting natural health a lot of people are still sick and they need more help and that’s what I want to do. I want to help people be healthy.”
