Five Steps to Heal IBS Naturally

by Craig Fear, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner April 16, 2014

Heal IBS
As a certified Nutritional Therapist who specializes in digestive issues, I was recently asked to appear on a local TV show and talk about irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a functional bowel disorder that is becoming increasingly common, if not epidemic, in our society.

IBS is becoming so common that you probably know someone who suffers with it.  About  10-15% of Americans are diagnosed with IBS though the majority don’t seek help for it.  They just learn to live with it.

The great news is that there’s a lot you can do to help relieve the symptoms of IBS naturally with food.

In my guest TV appearance, I shared five basic tips that can help heal IBS in many cases.   Now there’s only so much I could say in five minutes.  So after the video below I will expand on those tips.

These five tips are a great starting point if you or someone you know suffers with IBS. Read more…

Pollen is Not The Problem

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist April 15, 2014


Spring has sprung in full force in my neck of the woods, and wow, is the pollen ever thick!

Sounds of people sneezing and blowing their nose fill the pollen laden air with boxes of tissue flying off the shelves fast and furious in pharmacies all across town.

While pollen does indeed make you sneeze if you get a noseful of it, is it really necessary to dread spring every single year knowing that Visine and allergy meds will be your constant companion to deal with watery eyes and congestion for at least a month or two?  Is this something you just have to resign yourself to and live with?

Giveaway! Autographed Copy of The Nourished Kitchen Cookbook

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist April 14, 2014

The Nourished Kitchen Cookbook
I am so excited to announce that tomorrow is the release date of a cookbook that anyone who values the time tested principles of Traditional Cooking will want to have on hand in the home library:

The Nourished Kitchen: Farm-to-Table Recipes for the Traditional Foods Lifestyle

Jenny McGruther, food blogger and soon to be award winning, best selling author, took two full years to write this cookbook.  I chatted with Jenny frequently throughout that time, and this cookbook she has produced is nothing short of a gift to humankind and in particular, mothers who wish to raise healthy children in a processed foods world with the deck stacked against them in every way imaginable..

The recipes Jenny created for The Nourished Kitchen weren’t just conceived in her home, however, they were inspired by the gardens, fields, orchards and farmers she visited all around the world that formed the basis of her research.

Every aspect of the time tested, ancestral principles of food gathering and preparation is covered in The Nourished Kitchen. In fact, more than 160 recipes are packed into this cookbook with writing and photography to nourish the eyes and the heart, not just the belly.

Dutch Parliament Bans Roundup, France and Brazil to Follow

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist April 12, 2014

Roundup
The dominoes are starting to fall.

The evidence damning glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, the world’s number one herbicide for weed control, has become too enormous to ignore.

While it won’t kill you immediately as demonstrated by foolish Monsanto reps who have been known to drink Roundup in product demonstrations to convince unwitting farmers to use it, the long term effects to health are nothing short of devastating. Read more…

By Dr. Sylvia Onusic

Celiac Disease is an autoimmune disease, not a food allergy, which affects infants, children and adults and results in a permanent intolerance to gluten, a protein found in wheat, rye and barley.

Celiac disease is a common disorder and about 1% or more of North Americans may develop it and it can occur at any age. With celiac progression, there is increasing damage to the villi of the small intestine, which are responsible for uptake of nutrients, leading to nutrient- related diseases such as osteoporosis, malabsorption syndromes, anemia, even lymphoma and other cancers. 1-2

Celiac is an inherited disease which can show up because of a variety of different conditions. The most important factor in preventing development of celiac in at-risk babies is breastfeeding up to a year or more, especially upon first exposure to gluten. Read more…
