Biofilms: Overlooked Step in Treating Candida

by Carla Hernandez, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner October 22, 2014

biofilms key to candida treatment

Yeast overgrowth, also referred to as fungal overgrowth or simply Candida, is at epidemic levels today whether a person may know it to be a serious threat to health or not.

This is due to the fact that most symptoms that are caused by the compromising of one or more body tissues by fungus are usually treated by conventional doctors as another condition entirely, therefore never addressing the real cause.

Even holistic doctors can miss the mark by not considering the importance of breaking down biofilms as part of an effective candida treatment plan which can lead to failure of the protocol and much frustration on the part of the patient.

Homemade Organic Baby Wipes

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist October 21, 2014

homemade organic baby wipes

I remember so well holding my firstborn child for the very first time.

So precious.  So vulnerable!

I couldn’t imagine any chemicals of any kind touching his delicate skin which is why I took what I thought were great pains to ensure any personal care products used were nontoxic.

I must have spend a fortune on hypoallergenic “natural care” baby wipes at that time for diaper changes (organic baby wipes were hard to find then), but looking back, those weren’t such a great choice after all.

Wise Traditions is America’s premier nutritional conference featuring renowned speakers on a variety of health-related topics, a large vendor exhibit area, and whole foods based meals that are always from scratch, delicious, satisfying, sustainably produced, locally sourced (as much as possible), and traditionally prepared.

Are you tired of saying “no” to food all the time because everything seems to be either unhealthy or toxic? Let the Weston A. Price Foundation teach you how to say YES while still keeping it nutritious and delicious!

I am excited to be on the docket as a speaker for the Chapter Leader meeting on Thursday, November 6, and I will also be signing books at the Radiant Life table from 12:45-1:30 pm on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoon if you want to stop by and say hello!

I would encourage you to check out the action packed schedule for this year’s Conference with a variety of different learning tracks for both the novice and experienced attendee:

Coconut Milk Pudding

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist October 19, 2014

cupful of coconut milk pudding

Pudding is the ultimate comfort food especially when the weather turns cool.

Warm, right off the stove is the way I most enjoy it just like my Grandma used to make it.  A pudding box wasn’t good enough for her, and it’s not good enough for me either. Who wants to feed their children (or themselves) a bowlful of GMO white sugar, GMO corn starch, artificial colors and flavors plus preservatives anyway?

Not me!

From scratch with only whole ingredients is the way to go with pudding if you want all the enjoyment and none of the toxic load!

I typically make pudding with grassfed, fresh from the farm milk, but if there is even a hint of congestion issues in the household due to weather changes or whatnot, it is best to skip the dairy and make coconut milk pudding instead. This is because dairy, even if raw, can become mucous forming when cooked.

Sports Illustrated Supermodel Tells Fans to Eat Butter

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist October 17, 2014

 

sports illustrated cover with Carolyn Murphy

Carolyn Murphy is a Supermodel in every sense of the word.

A native Florida girl, she has appeared on magazine covers from around the world since her debut over two decades ago including Sports Illustrated, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Elle, W and dozens of others.

In addition, Ms. Murphy has been the face of Gucci, Tiffany & Co., MaxMara, and Harry Winston, Vogue Model of the Year, and consistently ranked by Forbes as one of the highest paid models in the world.

There can be no doubt that Carolyn Murphy has attained a level of success in her field achieved by few others.

Magazine covers and lucrative contracts aside, Carolyn Murphy’s greatest contribution to women is clearly not her epitomization of modern beauty with its airbrushed photos of perfection and unattainable proportions.

No indeed.  It may well prove to be her recent admission to her fans that she has abandoned dieting and her suggestion that true beauty comes from eating Real Food.
