When you wake up each morning, dial-in. Ask yourself about how you slept last night, your energy level, how your skin looks, and how your stomach feels. We really have this amazing vehicle; the most phenomenal creation is the human body, mind, and spirit. If you don't know where to start, I'd encourage you to start with dialing in. - Dr. Michelle Robin

OrganifiAre you getting the quality nutrition your body needs?

It's what provides us with energy every day. And when we don’t give our body the nutrition it needs, we feel it. It’s in the way we lack motivation. It’s in the way we get stuck in ruts, dragging ourselves to work, to lunch, back to work, and back home...

You don’t need to hire a nutritionist, though. You don’t need to live at the gym, either. In fact, all you really need is about 3 minutes a day… and Organifi will do the rest.

Morning, Noon, And Night… Organifi Superfoods Have Your Nutritional Needs Covered.

Start the day with a refreshing glass of 11 perfect detoxing superfoods. Moringa, chlorella, ashwagandha, wheatgrass, coconut water, and a whole lot more to get energy levels up, cortisol levels down, and your day started off right.

Boost metabolism and energy with a delicious ruby-red fruit punch. All the best berries and super-fruits for a youthful glow, and real hardcore adaptogenic herbs, roots, and mushrooms for that extra kick of power. Great for those afternoon slumps!

What better way to end the day, than with a delicious mug of something sweet, nostalgic, and relaxing? Our Gold tea is made with turmeric, ginger, lemon balm, reishi, and more. Calming… soothing… for a great night’s sleep. Wake up feeling refreshed and ready to go!

Power Quotes From The Show

The Importance Of Helping Yourself First

"When you think about being a force, a magnet, or this vitality, I want to help walk into the room and elevate the vibration. The only way that I can do that is if I invest in my own wellbeing first." - Dr. Michelle Robin


Loving Your Authentic Self

"It's hard to be kind to people when you're not kind to yourself. If I can't do for others what I can't do for myself, then I'm a fraud. It's human nature to not want to be a fraud. We want to be able to show up and share our most authentic selves no matter what that looks like. Bring your quirky self; I don't care. We have to break that cycle of being just blatantly mean to one another so we can love ourselves first and then one another." - Dr. Michelle Robin


What It Means To Be Well

"When your mind, body, and spirit don't get in your way of living life meaning you're not paralyzed in fear, you don't have a bellyache, headache, or back pain, that is how we know we are well. We are innately designed to be well and that is the divine in all of us." - Dr. Michelle Robin

About Small Changes Big Shifts

Dr. Michelle Robin wellnessSmall Changes Big Shifts empowers people to whole health through balanced daily practices and wellness providers who guide them. The company educates our members who are consumers and professional providers, and offers programs and consulting services in whole-person health.

We believe the shift to whole-person health starts with greater access to interdisciplinary wellness providers and consistent, daily practice through The Quadrants of Wellbeing. We want to disrupt the current healthcare paradigm by empowering consumers with practices that put the odds in their favor to be well and stay well.

The Framework – Quadrants of Wellbeing

Whole health comes from four components or “quadrants”: mechanical, chemical, energetic and psychospiritual. Being healthy and staying well for a lifetime takes more than being diligent in one area, it requires balance and harmony across all four. Wellness empowerment through lifestyle behaviors means practicing balance and putting the odds in your favor through small changes that make big shifts in whole health outcomes.
