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!

Contrary to popular belief, not all sickness or disease is hereditary. Are you aware that most disease can be prevented? Education is the key to knowledge.

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.

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.

5+ Health Benefits of Radish

5 Health Benefits of RadishGrowing up with the ‘waste not, want not’ ideology, and because we planted some this year, I wondered about the health benefits of radish as well as how radish leaves could be used. What I learned is nothing short of amazing. Besides, being used in salads, they can also be used in smoothees and they have a distinct flavor. I definitely like it more than spinach. 🙂  

We ALL Have A Right to Know What’s In Our Food!

I tried really hard to stay away from politics but it appears to be invading every part of our lives – even to the food we eat! The “Right to Know” what we are eating has to be voted on! Can you believe it? I’ve written before about CA Proposition 37 and even though I don’t live in California, I am urging everyone who does to vote YES on CA Prop 37. We DO have a right to know what we eat AND should also be able to choose. This should not even be up for a vote!

What happens with the CA Prop 37 vote on November 6th IS going to affect the rest of us. Following are two links that I hope you will go through. Learn more about the dangers of GMO. “We are what we eat” is very true. Since GMOs have ‘stealthily’ been added to the ingredients (80%) of our food, there has been a consistent rise in disease and it appears the fastest growing part of the population is our children! Why? They are active, eat more and their immune systems can’t handle all the toxins. Cancer, asthma, allergies are all on the rise! Obesity is another growing issue and in part also connected to certain ingredients in our food – there are rises in heart disease and diabetes.

CRPD – Our Special Needs Children and GMO

How is it possible to live two entirely different roles at the same time on the same planet?!? Sometimes they come together just fine and at others, they clash. (I’m not counting all the other hats of wife, mom, etc. here.)

One role is that of a Network Marketing Professional. I have my own home business in the health and wellness field. I figure without health – nothing else matters. Doesn’t matter if you have time or money – without great health, you can’t enjoy them. I’m also into the prevention end of things. Keep the body in good shape and you don’t need to replace parts – that gets really expensive.

The other role is of a concerned American citizen and right now our country really is in crisis on sooooo many fronts. The election we are facing is a critical one. We will either be a free country with our God-given rights – as our forefathers intended – or, we … won’t …

Lately my roles have been clashing a lot. We want to do the best for our families and that includes not only good nutrition, pure water, clean air it also includes having the freedom to do so. We literally have a food fight going on right now and it’s not the fun one across our tables. We want to know what’s in the food we are eating and feeding our families. If you haven’t already done so, learn about the hazards of GMO foods and the herbicides and pesticides you may be unknowingly ingesting.

The raising and care of our special needs children is in jeopardy.

One of my favorite pictures!

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) would give the U.N. oversight of the healthcare and education choices parents with special needs kids make. There isn’t much time to stop this! Parental Rights and URGENT NOTICE
