Your Passion is What Drives Your Success

Finding natural ways to do things has always been part of my life and started back in my childhood. I remember reading the PREVENTION MAGAZINE my parents subscribed to as a child and loved learning all the tips and tricks they offered. Some of my fondest memories of my childhood include an amazing ORGANIC garden and fruit trees my mom and dad had, which took up most of our backyard. During the summer and fall it seems my mom, and sometimes my dad, would spend hours canning… just thinking about what came out of that garden makes my mouth water. Some of my favorites were her homemade peach syrup (my favorite with pancakes), canned peaches, huge fresh red, ripe strawberries (on shortcake) and last but not least, my mom would make this ice cold side dish made from red, vine-ripened tomatoes. She would cut them up and add a little … Continue reading

Get a Jump Start on 2018

As we come to the close of one year and enter into the next, its a good time to reflect on the past and set new goals for the future. However, sometimes that’s easier said than done, right? It can be very hard, some would say impossible, to move forward when we’re still hanging onto the past… whether that means harboring unforgiveness in our hearts towards past wrongs or perhaps holding onto old memories or habits, good or bad. Either way, if we remain focused on them they can keep us locked in the past and prevent us from moving forward and into the future. Fortunately essential oils may be just the answer you’ve been looking for. When essential oils, and their many chemical constituents, are inhaled through our olfactory system (sense of smell) they have an amazing ability to affect our limbic system. The olfactory system is directly linked … Continue reading

Kicking Toxic Products to the Curb- DEODORANT

Each and every day we use products in our homes, most of the time on a daily basis, that are slowly poisoning us with toxic chemicals. Most people are under the assumption that if a product is available for sale and found on our grocery store shelves that it must be safe. That our government rules and regulations, and agencies like the EPA and FDA, are protecting us from harmful chemical exposure. Unfortunately nothing could be further from the truth. Our system of limiting exposure to toxic chemicals is not working and failing us miserably. Its time for us to take action. We need to start reading labels and become informed consumers! According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Top 10 Killer Household Chemicals Study the top 10 most dangerous chemicals in our home: air fresheners, cleaning supplies, dishwasher soap and dish soap. Other danger spots listed: beauty supplies and … Continue reading

Homemade Ginger Ale with a KICK!

One of the best things that you can do is to for your health is to ditch all the sugar laden drinks and sodas, and replace them with healthier options like homemade ginger ale or lemonade. Most of the drinks on the market contain either high-fructose corn syrup, which means your drinking a product made from GMO’s which is a whole other subject in and of itself, or artificial sweeteners. Its getting harder and harder but I try to avoid GMO’s like the plague. In recent years studies have shown that sugar is more addictive as cocaine… yep that’s right, COCAINE. Dr. Mercola, an alternative medicine proponent and osteopathic physician, says it’s “one of the most addictive and harmful substances currently known”. If you’ve ever tried to get off sugar and had a hard time doing so, now you know why! And don’t think for one minute that consuming “diet” … Continue reading

Dangers of Synthetic Fragrances

Most people are totally unaware of the dangers that synthetic fragrances pose to our health or how many times we’re exposed to them on a daily basis. Chemical fragrance is really nothing more than a conglomeration of man-made chemicals, many of them very toxic and found to cause many health problems including cancer. Fragrance is found in all kinds of everyday products… scented candles, air fresheners (both plug-in and spray cans), hand sanitizers, laundry detergent, fabric softeners, dryer sheets, household cleaning products, personal care products to include shampoos, deodorant, body washes, and cosmetics. Even in your favorite perfumes and colognes. The list literally goes on and on. If a product has a fragrance chances are its from a toxic soup of chemicals. We are constantly exposed to them and they can be found literally everywhere- in our homes, cars, schools, office buildings, stores, malls, etc. In fact, it’s hard to … Continue reading

I Chose the Path Less Followed

Sometimes life throws us a curve ball… something that we weren’t expecting. We rejoice when its something good or exciting and never complain when that happens, right? However… sometimes good things come to us disguised as something bad, or something to be avoided and can take us down a path that we would not have chosen willingly, and many times they can leave us wondering “Why is this happening?” Because of my life experiences, I can now look back on many of these times in my life and give thanks for them because of the positive changes they produced. There certainly is something to be said for hindsight… its just hard to keep all that in mind while in the midst of a storm. One of these “times” happened years ago when my daughter was just shy of her 8th birthday and is responsible for taking me down the path … Continue reading
