Are You Poisoning Your Skin?

Are You Poisoning Your SkinPoisoning your skin is NOT something we ever set out to do. I use the term ‘poison’ to get your attention. It’s the chemicals in skin care products that are the poison our bodies don’t need. Our skin is the largest organ on our body and needs to be protected and nourished. (Just like the chemical additives in food, they make us sick.)

Banned Foods To Stop Feeding Your Family

Banned Foods To Stop Feeding Your FamilyBanned foods in other countries need to be banned in America as well. Why aren’t they? The answer … Profit Margin. The big corporations are about making money. They really do not care about our health. Whenever you can, shop your local farmer’s market. Your health is worth paying a little more … isn’t it?

4 Keys to Raising Smarter Kids

4 Keys to Raising Smarter KidsWouldn’t you love to have ‘smarter kids? I don’t mean that in a bad way because all kids are smart. My own grandkids are teaching me about texting, FB and creating videos, etc. What I’m talking about is ability to learn and retain information.

Do they have trouble with math, reading, science? The cause could be out of your control in the school setting (unless you want to become an activist). There are steps you can take at home. Ensure your family is getting the proper sleep, exercise, nutrition, as well as breathing clean air and drinking pure water.

Toxic Overload and What To Do

Toxic Overload and What To DoToxic overload is a ‘hot’ subject for many in the health industry. Though this book was written in 2005, it is still relevant. There are more chemicals available today that have not been tested for toxicity. These chemicals are in our cleaners. They are in our personal care products. And, they are even in our food supply!

This book is an excellent place to start. It consists of two parts:

Steps To Create Healthy Habits That Stick

Steps To Create Healthy Habits That StickCreating healthy habits sounds easy, doesn’t it? I suppose it is if you’re taught them as a child. Many of us learned about brushing our teeth properly. Good, healthy habit, right?

Then, we grew up, got out on our own and decided to do things our way. Not saying we gave up brushing our teeth. However, it’s easy enough to get in the habit of eating at fast food places.

Always Keeping Dogs Healthy

Keeping Dogs HealthyKeeping dogs healthy was not something I understood as a child. I did know they needed food, water and lots of love and playing. Dogs have been a part of my life since I was a young child. Mom knew if she saw me, a dog was close by. Strays would follow me. One of my dreams was to own my own kennel.

Health Benefits of Watermelon

Health Benefits of Watermelon - 1Watermelon weekend is here! It’s also another fruit we’ve planted in our yard. What I didn’t know was all the health benefits associated with it.

On a hot day, if refrigerated, watermelon is one of the best fruits on the planet. By nature, it’s full of water (92%) and natural sugar. Add to that, it’s low on calories and high in Vitamin C.

It’s one food most kids will eat. 🙂 Take it as a treat on your next trip to the beach or a picnic.
