Keep All Your Medical Information in One Place

A few years ago, from 2012 – 2019, my sister and I were our parents Power of Attorney (POA) and Medical Representatives.  This meant we were to help navigate their finances and medical care.  Both my parents had several medical issues and were either in the ER or a Doctor’s office often.  When they would see their usual doctor, have…

Supporting Your Immune System with Herbs!

I don’t know about you, but I try to avoid putting any chemicals in my body as much as possible or at least intentionally.  I wanted to share with you the history of how we moved from natural healing and Naturopathic Doctors to a “pill for an ill” and Traditional Doctors but I cannot locate the video I watched discussing…

Understanding Your Immune System

As I continue my discussion on building a strong Immune system, I thought I’d take some time to explain what our Immune system is and how it works.

Are There Toxins in Your Bathroom Cleaning Products?

As a child, one of the wise things my mom did was give us chores.  There are four girls in my family but only three of us had chores.  My youngest sister was a little too young to take on that responsibility.  So, the household cleaning was divided amongst the three of us.  Every Saturday morning before we could go…

Carbs or no Carbs?

Do you love carbs … like bread, crackers, rice, potatoes, and fruit … yes even fruit?  I have to say my weakness would be crackers.  I LOVE cheese and crackers for sure.  Fruit also is one of my staple foods especially in the summer when I can get organic blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries and don’t even mention cherries.  When…
