It’s here. Cold and Flu season, I mean. Which means it’s time to prepare. By prepare I absolutely do not mean go and get the flu shot- actually, quite the opposite.
It's time to build the immune system so you are stronger. The flu shot contains toxic ingredients and adjuvants that stress the body and lower the immune system. In addition it is statically not effective, despite the amount of inflated and misleading information advertised and purposely bias studies. The risk of the side effects and permanent damage from the flu shot are so frightening you'll scream if someone ever dares to come at you with it (just read any flu vaccine packet insert for details- you can request this at any time in order to make an informed decision on what's best for you and your family. In fact, you need to request it, otherwise there really is no informed consent at all). Also see part 5 of Vaccines Revealed for more information.
Honey, ginger and lemon, on the other hand, are all fantastic ways to support the immune system! Make this now and keep it in your fridge all season long.
Traditional cleaning products are laden with toxic chemicals. When we are exposed to these chemicals on a regular basis our bodies become inundated. What we are routinely exposed to we absorb- and yes, this includes cleaning chemicals. We already live in a toxic world, the food we eat, the water we drink, the medications we take, etc. all take a toll of our body. When we can make better choices, we should. If it's possible to reduce the toxic burden by any means, we should. In the process not only are you making it easier on your body (one less thing to inundate your liver with), but you're also saving money and contributing to a less consumptive lifestyle which directly effects the planet.
So what is Citrus Vinegar? It is white vinegar that has been infusing with citrus peels, the end result being a product that smells a whole lot better than straight vinegar and becomes a fantastic base for DIY house hold products such as an all purpose cleaner, wood cleaner and polish, and fabric softener (stay tuned for those recipes- in the meantime, get your citrus vinegar ready!).
Listen up ladies! We've got something serious to talk about...
I know many of you can relate to this... In the past I've struggled with the fine line of wanting to purge my entire home of anything toxic but also wanting to have gorgeous hair and flawless makeup. Are the two mutually exclusive? Can you have your cake and eat it too?
You've heard the term oil pulling, I'm sure. It's been making quite the splash, the term being thrown around as our latest health trend. But oil pulling is far from a fad or trend, it's an ancient Ayurvedic Indian tradition that has been around for thousands of years. It involves pulling oil through your teeth, or swishing it around your mouth, for up to 15 minutes a day. Why do this? The reasons are plenty. For starters, it destroys an array of oral microbes from viruses to bacteria to protozoa, it reduces plaque build up, whitens teeth, improves bad breath and detoxes the body.
There has been a lot of confusion with the latest American Heart Association (AHA) study on dietary fats, which specifically talks about coconut oil. This study claims coconut oil is unhealthy and by consuming it you put yourself at a higher risk for heart disease. I’m here to clear a few things up.
It is so easy to make all natural deodorant! It's literally two ingredients and you probably have both in your kitchen cabinet right now. Why would you make an all natural deodorant you may ask? Please read my prior post here on the dangers and toxicities of deodorant.
Vaccines Revealed is a 9-part documentary series (currently with a free viewing) that delves into all aspects of vaccinations and interviews renowned experts across dozens of fields and specialties. It is my medical, moral and ethical responsibility to share this with you. I can not emphasize enough how important patient education and informed consent is. Once you are informed you can make whatever decision you feel is best for you and your family- but you simply can not do that if you are not properly informed.
Please watch the 9-part series by clicking the link below, and share with your loved ones (whether or not they have children, as this is not a pediatric issue).
To me this is such a simple way elevate a humble vegetable such as the leek. It becomes the perfect pairing with a hearty protein and can be enjoyed warm or straight from the fridge. I really haven't found a better way to enjoy leeks.
It's really hard to try to stay in shape when dessert is always tempting me! I decided no matter what I'm going to make the best decisions I can when it comes to my food, which means tweaking recipes to fit my needs when I have people over for dinner. I made a no to low, depending on preference, added sugar apple pie like crumble and I was so impressed! Everyone loved it and I didn't have to feel guilty about betraying my health goals! Win-win if I do say so myself. I know, the picture does not do it justice.
I'm not sure about the rest of the country but it is hotttt here in Jacksonville, FL. Spring, thank you for showing face for about 2 weeks... next time feel free to stick around longer.
When I lived in South Florida we really only had 2 seasons, Deathly Hot and Warm, at least in Jacksonville we have Cool, Chilly, Warm, and Deathly Hot (can't avoid that one sadly). Hey, I'll take what I can get. This watermelon salad will cool you right off. It's perfect for BBQ weather (or basically the majority of the year weather if you're in Florida)
