Goat Milk Formula for Babies

by Sarah TheHealthyHomeEconomist October 30, 2014

bottles of goats milk formula

I nursed all 3 of my children exclusively until they started solid foods. I practiced extended breastfeeding as well, 2 years total for each of my first 2 children and 4 years total for the youngest.

I loved every. single. minute.

Nursing my children was a glorious experience the memories of which I will cherish forever!  I’m sure most breastfeeding mothers would report the same.

While homemade formula, even the more widely accepted goats milk formula, is a highly charged and controversial subject, it is in reality a very important option for women to consider and have available who are not able to have a breastfeeding relationship with their baby.

Your Breasts Don’t Lie: Soy, Flax and Other Estrogenic Foods and Herbs Trigger Precancerous Breasts

estrogenic foods trigger abnormal breasts

Is thermography your “new breast friend”?

Wendy Sellens, a licensed acupuncturist and the founder of Pink Image Thermography in Solana Beach, CA, thinks so!

For every woman who wants to know the truth about the state of her breast health or whether those supposedly cancer-preventing supplements and estrogenic foods recommended by her doctor or holistic practitioner are actually working, her answer is simple: “Your breasts can’t lie.”

In Breast Cancer Boot Camp, coauthored with William B. Hobbins MD, Sellens provides striking, irrefutable visual evidence of adverse, precancerous effects on the breasts from birth control pills, hormone replacement therapies, and at least a dozen supposedly healthy estrogenic foods and herbs.

Most of these products come highly recommended by alternative doctors and other health care practitioners, yet promote angiogenesis in the breast, a known risk factor for breast cancer.

Maple Kombucha Salad Dressing

kombucha salad dressing

Salad dressings have gotten a bad rap in recent years due to confusion about fats, and this has led dieticians and nutritionists to frequently advise against them entirely – suggesting either lowfat dressings or lemon juice as alternatives.

The problem is that salads dressed only in lemon juice are tasteless and unappetizing!

Lowfat commercial dressings are loaded with neurotoxic MSG in the form of hydrolyzed vegetable protein or hidden away under the “natural flavors” label.

Regular versions of bottled, commercial dressings are made with cheap, low quality oils that have been made rancid with high temperature processing. Stabilizers, preservatives, artificial flavors, colors and belly-bulging corn syrup add further insult to injury.

Even organic healthfood store dressings made with canola oil should be avoided. Canola oil is high in brain boosting omega 3 fat, but is usually genetically modified (GMO) if not organic and goes rancid very easily, requiring manufacturers to deodorize the oil to hide the off smell.

If that isn’t bad enough, the deodorizing process required to manufacture canola oil forms a dangerous form of transfat, not listed on the label of these supposedly healthy dressings.

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.
