Monday Health & Wellness: Why I Use Herbal Remedies

By | February 17, 2014

Watch TV these days, and you’ll see someone making fun of herbal remedies. “Oh, are you one of those people who likes natural remedies?  What about homeopathy?  That’s like magic water, or voodoo.” Our culture isn’t exactly pro-natural-remedy.  And in fact, some go as far as to say that they don’t even work.  Or that they Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: 10 Ingredients to Watch Out For

By | January 27, 2014

  Source Reading the labels on foods these days is not a simple task.  Many times, there are foods that have some “good” (recognizable, real food) ingredients, and some “questionable” (what is that? is it okay?) ingredients.  While foods with only “good” or only “bad ingredients are usually a simple choice, foods with a mixed Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Top 5 Anti-Inflammatory Foods (and Nutritional Consultations)

By | January 13, 2014

  This post is sponsored by Dr. Meghan Birt, DC, of Just Enjoy Food. Are you stuck in a place where your health is struggling, but you don’t know what to do?  You know that food can help, but you’re not sure what to eat?  (There are lots of conflicting messages out there!) There is Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Amazing Cold Fixer Syrup

By | December 2, 2013

This stuff is pretty amazing.  It doesn’t, per se, make the cold completely gone in an instant.  But…let me tell you the story. It was Monday night of Thanksgiving week.  It was late, perhaps 11 or 12, and just as I was falling asleep, my 8-month-old woke up, coughing.  It wasn’t the slight, dry cough Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Stay Healthier This Holiday Season

By | November 25, 2013

Everywhere you look, you see it: “Indulge this holiday season!  Buy it, eat it, wear it!” and you also see a lot of “…but not too much!  Keep those holiday pounds off!” Misses the mark, a bit, I think. We all deserve a little holiday indulgence.  We all deserve to relax a bit and celebrate. Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: “Anti-Everything” Pills

By | November 11, 2013

This post contains affiliate links. I really don’t know how you’d describe these pills, exactly.  They are a combination of three powerful herbs, which can fight just about any type of virus, bacteria, inflammation, pain, infection…you name it.  Hence, “anti-everything.” They contain turmeric, which is strongly anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and all around awesome.  Also acerola berry Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Herbs for Beginners

By | October 28, 2013

This post contains affiliate links. I’ve posted a lot on herbs lately.  I remember when I first ran across herbal medicine, about three years ago, and I was in awe of people who created their own remedies and seemed to know what herbs did what, where to buy them, how to use them.  How did Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Natural Ways to Prevent and Alleviate the Flu

By | October 21, 2013

Every Monday and I write about health and wellness.  I love the structure — something focused to start the week, but an open enough subject that I don’t get bored with it.  Except occasionally I get stuck and don’t know what topic to choose! I asked my fans on Facebook what they’d like to hear Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Ear Infection Oil

By | October 14, 2013

We don’t deal with ear infections too often.  In fact, each of our oldest two have had one, both at age 4.  Our oldest had one miserable night because of it (no pain until 10 PM and not much to do until the next day — plus we didn’t know much then).  Our second woke Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Electrolyte Concentrate Ice Cubes (Quick and Easy Remedy)

By | October 7, 2013

Several months back, I published my electrolyte drink recipe.  It’s great stuff — good for exercising, fall sports, and stomach viruses.  Really any time you need rehydrating. But, you know…if you’re sick, right now, are you going to want to stand up for 10 minutes to make this?  What if you don’t even have the Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: Why the Anti-Vaccine Movement Exists

By | August 26, 2013

  Image by USACE European District You should know right up front that this isn’t a research-based post.  I’m not trying to sway anyone to believe anything in particular about vaccines.  What I’m trying to do is explain to those who believe strongly in vaccines why there is an anti- vaccine movement in the first place. Read More

Monday Health & Wellness: How to Make Liver Pills

By | August 5, 2013

In my recent quest to rebalance my hormones and detox a bit, I created a “nutrient chart.”  It included nutrients that people with my particular ‘symptoms’ (which are minor) are probably deficient in, and which foods are highest in those nutrients. One food that showed up on the chart repeatedly was liver!  Liver is high Read More
