raw apple cider vinegar

It’s apple season in many parts of North America which will continue through the Fall.  Time to take advantage of the seasonal bounty and make some raw apple cider vinegar! If you don’t have locally grown apples available in your community, a bag of organic apples from the healthfood store or veggie co-op will work just fine.

Unpasteurized, or raw apple cider vinegar is expensive, so making your own is very thrifty.  A typical quart of organic, raw apple cider vinegar will run you just under $5 at most healthfood stores.  You can make a whole gallon, four times that amount, yourself for about the same price or even less if you use apple scraps that you were going to throw out or compost anyway.

homeopathic treatment for cavities

By Joette Calabrese, Classical Homeopath, HMC, CCH, RSHom

Editor’s Note:  Prevention and cure of cavities is based on diet as discovered, researched, and documented by Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS. In certain instances, homeopathic treatment can provide valuable assistance to the healing journey but cannot be viewed as a substitute for a nourishing, Traditional Diet.

The quality of the teeth represents the status of the bone structure of the body. Therefore it’s important that the teeth be sound. If they are, the bones will be sound, too. Sometimes, parents are concerned when their child’s teeth show frequent and large cavities in spite of a decent diet. This is rare when children are raised on raw milk, but it can occur in children who have certain predisposing genetics.

In this case, deep acting constitutional remedies would be in order; however, if the caries are not of a particularly worrisome level, much can be done to remedy the problem with homeopathic treatment at home.

Traditional Remedies for Modern FamiliesSome of the most frequent email and social media questions I receive pertain to parents seeking nontoxic, holistically minded alternatives for everyday health challenges both for themselves and their children.

The common theme of these reader requests convinced me quite some time ago that the topic of my next book must absolutely be about natural, home remedies. Today is such an exciting day because I am finally able to announce that this book, Traditional Remedies for Modern Families, is now complete!

In a nutshell ….

Traditional Remedies for Modern Families is a 120+ page compendium of simple solutions to everyday wellness challenges without the use of drugs or toxic therapies. From coughs and colds to digestion, skin, cuts, bruises and allergies, Traditional Remedies for Modern Families covers the gamut of conditions that can effectively and safely be handled at home in the vast majority of cases saving time and money at the doctor’s office as well as immune system damage and other dangerous side effects from the overuse of drug based solutions.

Even more exciting than the fact that Traditional Remedies for Modern Families is complete is that I’ve decided to release it in a manner so that for a few short days, my blog readers can get a copy where it’s essentially free.

Here’s how it will work: coming very very soon, the first few days of Traditional Remedies for Modern Families’ availability will be via the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle which includes over $200 of free bonuses (really good ones that you will actually use … I’ve reviewed the list myself.  I promise!) that are worth many times over the very reasonable price of the bundle itself!

If you would like to be sure not to miss this special launch that will only happen this one time, click here to sign up for updates (no spam ever) plus information on how you can get my new book, $200+ of bonuses, plus dozens of other eBooks, classes and webinars completely and utterly free!  No kidding!

Read on to see how it helped my friend of many years, Della Powell, mother of 4 and a Tactical Athlete and Crossfit Kettleball Certified Instructor.

Della’s Story:  Last fall I decided to transition from exercising for general fitness into training as a professional athlete. Kettlebell is a Russian sport that requires a feat of strength as well as endurance. Actually, after seeing the training schedule, it took me three months to get the nerve to begin.

I soon found training at age 50 was no easy task. In fact, the training was crushing me.

I had to reduce my workouts by 2/3 and it soon became clear that I was in need of nutrient dense foods to come to the rescue. Specifically, I needed to increase my flexibility, protect my joints, and recover faster from intense training.

ramen noodles dangers

Like many other poor college students, ramen noodles were a primary line item in my bare bones food budget.

Gross at it sounds to me now, I typically ate them 3-4 times per week.   I loved every. single. bite.   No kidding.

At 10 cents per meal, the price was definitely right.

The high amount of synthetically derived monosodium glutamate (MSG) in ramen noodles tasted sooo good, tantalizing my tastebuds and fooling my body into thinking it was getting nourishment when it was getting nothing but empty calories, chemicals and additives.

Now, a new study involving over 10,000 people warns of the dangers of ramen noodles, especially for women, which go far and beyond the metabolism disrupting, hypothalamus frying MSG.

In fact, some of the dangers associated with ramen noodles have nothing to do with the noodles themselves, which means organic ramen noodles eaters are at risk too.

heliotherapy benefits

By Carla Hernandez, NTP

Most are well aware that sunlight exposure is a means to increasing vitamin D levels, yet at the same time we are told to avoid sun exposure especially at midday as it has been implicated in skin cancer, skin damage and premature aging.

The truth is that sensible, non-burning sun exposure preferably at midday with no sunscreen applied is critical to health and not just because it can dramatically boost Vitamin D levels into optimal range.   There are many other benefits the sun provides our skin and body that are not commonly known by most people.  These natural treatments using the sun are traditionally known as heliotherapy.

lunch box snacks I buy

It’s true.

Not all of the lunch box snacks I pack come from the work of my own hands in the kitchen.

Gasp!

Does this surprise you?

It shouldn’t.

The Modern Mother is in one of the most unique and challenging positions – ever.

Not only must she cook, clean, and take care of the family as generations of women did before her, but now she must also frequently head up the household on her own and even if she is fortunate enough to have a partner who helps, usually works outside the home to meet the family’s financial needs or because she finds her work fulfilling.

balance hormones

By Dr. Mark Frank D.C.

Feeling great can be described as the experience of ultimate clarity, peacefulness and relaxation, but within the context of being optimally energized.  Sounds contradictory, but when you have experienced it yourself, you know exactly what I mean.

There are three main tools to help achieve this enjoyable state of being:  breathing exercises, quiet self reflection, and exercise.

Exercise is probably the most accessible tool for most people.

People exercise for different reasons, competition, body composition, and life extension. Those are all great reasons but deal with the future and cause people to lose interest and stop if they don’t achieve those goals.

Many luxury spas and cruise ships offer a seaweed wrap to clients as part of their relaxation and detoxification package. These services are usually very expensive and a bit inconvenient, requiring time off work or while on vacation.

What if you could make your own seaweed wrap at home … anytime you wanted for pennies per treatment and all the convenience of using your own shower afterward?

Dr. Lawrence Wilson MD recommends seaweed wraps, also called kelp wraps, for his patients as they help individuals absorb more minerals particularly if there is a digestive problem involved that is preventing proper nutrient absorption.
