HOMEMADE COLD REMEDY

Having two kids in school and daycare comes with its problems… They get sick often. Some more than others, and my kids are fortunate to be on the “less” side. They don’t get sick often, but when they do, I’m cautious as to what I treat the cold with. I never give them pharmacy bought drugs of any kind, and usually just let the cold pass on its own. But, when they need a little help I go for homemade remedies.

WHY + HOW TO EXFOLIATE + NON-TOXIC SKIN CARE

Unlike the toxins we consume from our food, that enter our digestive system first, chemicals in our skin products enter our bloodstream in a matter of seconds. Just think about birth control and nicotine patches. Plus, about 80% of the ingredients in skin care products have never been tested. So for me, instead of trying to add so many skin products to my skin, I prefer going simple, and just use natural, healthy, nourishing oils.

HOW I DETOX + HOW I CURED MY ECZEMA

I’ve been asked plenty of times to post recipes for detox drinks or detox concoctions. The reason why I never post recipes for these “detox drinks” is because they dont really detox, they help, but they dont really detoxify your body. I’m talking about the fruit infused waters with cinnamon and ginger and such type of recipes that don’t really do much. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they don’t have any benefits. They do, I’ve been drinking turmeric infused water for a couple days now. But what they dont do is detox the body of junk in just one sip.

DIY HAIR GROWTH TREATMENT

I’m all about non-toxic beauty. I use nothing but oils on my skin, and when buying shampoo’s and other beauty products I try to buy products that are as clean as possible. Toxins and chemicals in beauty products can penetrate the skin. Studies have demonstrated that they can end up in our system, affecting us as much as the toxins in our food do.

EATING ORGANIC ISN’T A NEW THING

It’s amazing how things change and we adapt to modern technologies and methods.

About 80 years ago pesticides did not exist. Conventional agriculture by nature was “organic”. In 1940 the first pesticide was invented to avoid the loss of production that at that time was about 7%. It should be noted that, due to the resistance that pests have acquired to these pesticides, currently the loss is around 13%. So, it has become a vicious cycle, and the losses are even larger.

MICROWAVE DANGERS

Microwaves heat food by making water molecules in the food to resonate at very high frequencies and eventually turn to steam which heats your food. That is why food with lots of water heat up faster. While this can rapidly heat your food, what most people don’t realize is that it can also cause change in your food’s chemical structure. This distorts and deforms the molecules of whatever food or other substance you subject to it.

CREAMY WHITE TEA

Processed with VSCO with c2 preset

I’m absolutely obsessed with tea and anything related to it. During the night, you’ll usually find me sipping on chamomile, ginger, nettle leaf or burdock tea…just to name a few. And if you follow me on Instagram, you can see that I’m also into kombucha, which is a fermented black tea loaded with gut and other health benefits.
