May -AAPI Month – We celebrate Many Cultures that Influence Hawaii and America

Post from GTH:

May is Asian American Pacific Islander Month, a time to celebrate and honor the contributions and achievements of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.

The acronym “AAPI” encompasses a broad range of ethnicities and nationalities, including those from Asia, Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia, and beyond. Each of these regions has its own unique cultures and histories, which have greatly influenced the AAPI experience in the United States.

Asia is the largest and most populous continent in the world, and its influence can be felt across the globe. Asian Americans come from a variety of countries, including China, India, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam, among others. The cultures of these countries are diverse, with unique languages, traditions, and religions. Some of the most popular Asian cultures in the United States include Chinese, Japanese, and Korean, which have significantly impacted American society.

Micronesia is a region of small islands in the western Pacific Ocean, including the Federated States of Micronesia, Palau, and the Marshall Islands. The cultures of Micronesia are characterized by a strong emphasis on community and family, as well as a deep respect for the natural environment. The people of Micronesia have a rich history of navigation and seafaring, which has influenced their culture and way of life.

Melanesia is a region in the southwestern Pacific, including Papua New Guinea, Fiji, and the Solomon Islands, among others. The cultures of Melanesia are diverse and complex, with a wide range of languages and traditions. Many Melanesian cultures strongly emphasize ancestor worship and believe in the power of spirits and magic.

Polynesia is a region in the central and southern Pacific, including Hawaii, Samoa, Tonga, and the Cook Islands. Polynesian cultures are characterized by their strong connection to the natural world and their deep respect for the ocean. The people of Polynesia have a rich tradition of storytelling and song, which has been passed down through generations.

In Hawaii, part of Polynesia, the indigenous Hawaiian people heavily influence the culture. The Hawaiian language, hula dancing, and traditional foods like poi and poke are all important parts of the state’s cultural heritage. Hawaii is also home to many Japanese and Chinese Americans, whose cultures have greatly influenced the state’s cuisine and traditions.

This AAPI Month, let us celebrate the rich diversity and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. The Federal Asian Pacific American Council named this year’s theme for AAPI Heritage Month “Advancing Leaders Through Opportunity.”

Never Give UP! You CAN Reach Your 2023 Goals!


A new year always seems to bring renewed energy for wellness and Green Health First is right there with you bringing Alternative/PURE Life Quality tools! This month’s focus is on Metabolism! Data shows ~93% of us are NOT operating a optimal metabolism Because of SO many reasons: diet/artificials, hydration, exercise, sleep, anxiety/mental wellness to name a few and metabolism affects many aspects of our body systems and body/mind functioning. We are hosting WhatsApp classes regularly.
Contact Angie at to join our next private-group class! You are sure to learn about some life-changing tools you can incorporate right away and Live BETTER LONGER!


                  NOW More than ever we need to be intentional about our exposures and choices of what we put into our bodies!  The pandemic identified key nutrients that when deficient in the body makes it more susceptible to sickness/illness/disease.  We also learned there are many natural Gifts of the Earth to keep our bodies strong and healthy and which aid in the body’s healing/recovery so much more efficiently than most man-made products.

We learned from the Dec2019 Research article that green tea is one of the antioxidant-rich tools for boosting energy/immunity and reducing inflammation. The products have 45x the antioxidants as contained in a regular tea bag. Dec 3- 17 purchase with this one-time code, Holiday15, to get 15% off your order— applies to orders of multiple boxes which are already discounted. (Order by Dec17th to receive products b4 Christmas).  Visit Angie Saturday, Dec 4th at Cathis Farm’s Winter Lights Bazaar, 3-10pm and mention this promo to get the special pricing- also explore and bundle themed products for addressing different health ailments– Cathis Farm is located at 544 Falcon Rd, Lillington, NC– see details about all the games, food, crafts/holiday gifts and hayrides at

We also learned that being difficient in vitamins C/D and zinc make one more susceptible to illness/viruses, so we NEED to be intentional about eating foods rich in these nutrients and to take supplements, along with getting restful sleep, hydrating and exercising.

Did you know that our bodies do NOT store zinc? We have to resupply the right form of zinc often/routinely AND we know from recent needs that zinc is crucial for immunity & fighting viruses. The chelated zinc citrate is a key component in the new chewable Protective blend tablets.

Ask Angie Ceroli about these products and all that is available for this Holiday season which will support healthy bodies and environments! Explore what natural resources Your body needs to get into Sync/balance- by getting your biofeedback assessment AND set a solid foundation of ‘good’ habits – by Habit Stacking so you thrive and not just survive the hustle/bustle.  Healthy CAN be simple.

During this Pandemic- How Have WE Helped & Adapted? We & Rotary?


I established my business first as 2Cups Green Tea Hawaii focusing on the active community trying to help people make healthier choices for energy, stamina and hydration by educating how green tea supports metabolism, immunity and our cardiovascular system, plus much more. Then we expanded our goal to bring many other natural resources for addressing health concerns of our customers, evolving to how we’re now known as  ‘Green Health FIRST’. Being Intentional is prudent! We intentionally choose events that support local non-profits and fundraisers for local needs to ‘give-back’.  For 6+ years, we’ve raised money for the MS Society, Alzheimer’s, different cancer groups, organizations supported by Cary’s Fit and Able Productions, along with many more organizations- see them on the website at the ‘Community’ page.

The shut-down of all public activities/events has dampened our support in this way.  Nonetheless, we adapted our focus to provide virtual education on immunity boosting resources along with tools for balancing mental wellness via weekly webinars and retailing custom-made products in local stores & at the Midtown Farmer’s Market on Saturdays in Raleigh’s North Hills plaza throughout May. Our offerings at the Market include all-natural hand cleaners, essential oil roller blends for topical application and all-natural safe-for-your-skin bug repellant spray. Our weekly webinars are often co-hosted by nurses sharing practical applications of essential oils for everyday use and many are focused on particular topics like hormones, immunity, thyroid, and toxin-free living, skincare & gardening, to name a few.

The main hand cleaner is custom-made with witch hazel (<15% alcohol max- important because high alcohol content cleaners kill all the good bacteria that help our bodies fight, along with the ‘bad’ germs), coconut oil and the protective essential oil blend, designed for immune support. This blend contains orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus & Rosemary essential oils AND is used for these reasons:

The protective essential oil blend was mixed in water and sprayed to clean MRSA from an operating table; with daily testing for 7 days, no new growth of MRSA was detected until the 7th day after cleaning- even after reintroducing MRSA on the 4th day!

  • Orange– antibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal, anti-infectious, improves sluggish digestion, antidepressant(all citrus)
  • Cloveantibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal, anti-infectious, antiparasitic
  • Cinnamonantibacterial, antiseptic, antifungal, anti-infectious, antiparasitic, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, helps regulate blood sugar
  • Eucalyptusantibacterial, antiseptic, supports respiratory health
  • Rosemary– antibacterial, antifungal, anti-infectious, supports memory

Other blends are available. There are decades, even centuries in some cases, of data showing the therapeutic properties of our natural resources – much found in – our medical providers’ research tool. One cannot claim essential oils can treat or cure any health issues/flu/viruses. They do support the many systems in the body to strengthen it, and help it fight, just as nutrients in our foods are known to do.

Typical ‘hand sanitizers have >60% alcohol on average; while this is good for cleaning surfaces, it’s not good for frequent use on our skin. I understand the CDC’s guidance and respect following it for killing the virus cells. I also understand that use of high-alcohol content sanitizers are required in many settings, still, we do need to replenish the good ‘fighters’ and nutrients to our bodies that alcohol kills. Adding 100% plant- derived essential oils(the plant’s immune system), which are 50-70% more powerful than the typical serving one gets with fresh plants, feeds the body many nutrients/therapeutic properties that support in various ways, especially those from herbs & spices. Add MORE fresh herbs/spices into your diet to equip the body to fight.


As a Rotarian, we initiated a fabric mask campaign that our members supported by buying fabric, sewing and distributing them to local residents and businesses to include several nursing homes, medical facilities, restaurants and retailers along with needy residents. We made several Prayer squares with encouraging messages for those virus patients isolated at Harnett Health’s Betsy Johnson facility. Angier Rotary supported the food pantry as well as worked with other local non-profits (TMACS & Santa & Friends) and identified many families for which we could purchase and supply groceries/toiletries as they were waiting for additional aid.

Green Health FIRST is a local Small business that is in business to improve our community in various ways giving back through partnerships. We’d like to empower and equip YOU to be your best you and optimize your health and environment with our Gifts of the Earth! Please contact Angie Ceroli 919 656-0963/ to join or receive recordings of our learning webinars that occur on Tuesdays at 630pm & Thursdays at 130pm. Please visit/like for encouragement, hope and wellness articles/tips.


Healthy Hair – (&Body) When Salon’s Aren’t OPEN; Even When They Are!

Olive oil has been shown to improve brain/memory function, promote heart health, aid with weight loss, AND support healthy hair.

Many things contribute to hair loss to include stress, deficiencies in Vitamins A,D,E and hormonal imbalances, to name a few..

Olive Oil consumption can help ward off hormonal hair loss.

Increased production of the hormone known as DHT, dihydrotestosterone, (association found in research of male-pattern baldness), can occur with blood sugar spikes. Unfortunately, excess amounts of DHT can cause your hair follicles to shrink, inhibiting your ability to grow healthy hair. That’s where olive oil comes in.

In a study of 25 healthy adults, those who consumed olive oil with their meal showed a 22% reduction in their blood sugar levels after just 2 hours. Adding olive oil into cooking or using with veggies/salad, can help prevent blood sugar spikes — and reduce hormonal hair losses along with other issues related to high blood sugar levels.

Olive oil can help nourish your scalp

When your scalp/skin is dry and lacking in essential moisture, this is a big indicator of dehydration! Drink plenty of water- the recommendation is about 60oz/day for most average size people (120lbs). Dry scalps can stall or completely prevent healthy hair growth. Consuming/applying Olive oil, a known storehouse for vitamins D and E helps your skin hold on to essential moisture, creating more optimal conditions for continuous healthy hair growth. I spray olive oil on my salad as my salad dressing and cook with it along with Coconut oil– also very good for hair and skin.

It can help prevent your hair from premature aging because of the high and potent polyphenol antioxidant content, which can help shield your hair from damaging free radicals. Free radicals are unbalanced molecules that attack cells and promote the aging process. Potent polyphenols are also found in green tea!! So make green tea part of your hydration plan!

Be Intentional – Naturally Boost Immunity



We will honor a 10% off code for all orders– multiple box orders are already discounted and this code can be used with them. Green tea, coconut and Noni have documentation showing they are boosting/supporting of our immune/digestive systems and metabolism. See our articles on the 2CupsGreenTea Hawaii facebook page.

PER THE CURRENT CDC GUIDELINES, WE ARE NOT HOLDING WORKSHOPs IN ANGIER, Apex, Raleigh, Fayetteville, Burlington or Winston.  We are offering custom made products and services at the Midtown Farmer’s Market  just about every Saturday throughout the rest of the summer.  When Green Health First is not there, we’ll be at the Holly Springs Artisan’s Market – which is the 3rd Saturday/month.

PLEASE NOTE: One cannot claim essential oils can treat or cure any health issues/flu/viruses. Being Intentional is prudent! Add more fresh herbs/spices into your diet to equip the body to fight and may increase your bodies surveillance or response to outside negative influences. There are decades, even centuries in some cases, of data showing the therapeutic properties of our natural resources – one can check, for those documented in essential oils.

On Guard in water was sprayed to clean MRSA from an operating table and tested for 7 days and no new  growth of MRSA was detected until the 7th day after cleaning- and that was with daily testing! I use On Guard in my hand cleaner and I carry and use my hand cleaner VERY frequently- always have. The hand cleaner we make contains witch hazel, coconut oil and essential oil blend, On Guard- containing orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary – other blends are made now as well using oils that have documented anti-bacteriual/antiseptic/antiviral properties. I choose witch hazel because it contains <15% alcohol max- important because high alcohol content cleaners kill all the good bacteria that help our bodies fight, along with the ‘bad’ germs/bacteria. Typical ‘hand sanitizers’ have >60% alcohol on average; while this is good for cleaning surfaces, it’s not good for frequent use on our skin. Adding 100% plant-derived essential oils, which are 50-70% more powerful than the typical serving one gets with fresh plants, feeds the body many nutrients/therapeutic properties that support in various ways. Being Intentional is prudent! Add more fresh herbs/spices into your diet to equip the body to fight. There are decades, even centuries in some cases, of data showing the therapeutic properties of our natural resources – one can check, especially the benefits of using essential oils supporting immune surveillance and immune response.

Some healthcare providers showed me their hands and how cracked, dry and irritated they are from use of the high-alcohol hand sanitizers and gloves. Working in the medical field means complying with hygiene requirements, so this is somewhat unavoidable. Using fractionated coconut oil, along with any combo of these essential oils- lavender, tea tree, copaiba, turmeric, frankincense and/or geranium – will bring moisture replenishing the skin. Coconut oil itself has so many therapeutic benefits for the body systems – to include skin, digestion and blood pressure. Hawaiian Coconut powered drink, available in the pixies for 20oz water, contains electrolytes for hydrating and replenishing the body to help keep cramps from muscles- Try some today – get Hawaiin Coconut or a mix of this with the green tea pixies AND use your ‘HnF10’ code to get 10% off your order on this website,

For those who think they have been exposed, Try this: A local reflexology, Chinese medicine practicing doctor indicated most viruses/flu enters the body through the mucus membranes in the mouth, nose and eyes. Before entering her office, She requires all patients to spend 3-5 mins over a 15-20% vinegar & water-steam pot, breathing through the mouth and nose with open eyes, to kill the virus/flu in the mucus membranes. She says this will be effective if done within the first 10 days of exposure to a virus/ incubation of the virus/flu. She recommends doing this steam pot-breathing in the morning and at night before bed. If one does not have a steam pot, then heat a water/vinegar mixture on the stove and it will steam without boiling; stand over it with eyes open for 3-5 minutes breathing in through the nose and mouth. This should be more effective than other treatments like the netty pot and taking vinegar orally because it allows exposure for 3-5min directly to the mucus membranes where these other methods do not.  Every time I’ve done this protocol, my sinus pressure, headache, congestion and burning eyes are relieved! Allergies have been obnoxious this season and We are now in Summer!!

I’m glad to meet/chat with anyone to empower and equip- just give me a call. We have some hand cleaner bottles for $6. We also have a small stock of essential oils, however you can get them delivered direct at 25% off retail prices with your own wholesale account.  We have monthly special offers for new members -One can choose ‘become a member’ at . Also get a $20 biofeedback scan to see what YOUR Body say it needs to return to balance. Many essential oils, when 100% plant derived, have therapeutic properties that help our bodies fight. Contact Angie for details!

We also have many citations from published studies showing such properties- Visit our facebook for articles/tips:
