Everything is being cancelled, whether it is a business meeting, a networking event, your vacation or right now your flights.  Yes, we need this at this very moment, but how can we get some relief from our anxiety?

ESTROGEN decreases as we approach menopause (or if we are on certain medications, chemotherapy, tamoxifen and more).

Hormones, they control so much of our body; so what can we do to in order to moisturize our vaginal area and the rest of our body.

Why Fermented Foods? (amazing lacto fermented Kimchi recipe below)

Why Fermented Foods? (amazing lacto fermented Kimchi recipe below)

My “gut” tells me that most people have no idea that there is a difference between the pickles or sauerkraut that you can get in the supermarket vs the lacto fermented vegetables you can purchase (in a few places) or make in the privacy of your own kitchen.

So what really is the difference?

Lacto fermented vegetables are filled with probiotics that help our gut digest and assimilate our food

Lacto fermented foods are raw and without any chemicals added

To Detox or Not?

Posted by Bonnie Rogers on 5/3/2015 to Herbal Medicine
To Detox or Not?
The world we live in is filled with way too many toxins.  They are found in our food, our environment and just about everywhere we go.  The problem I see is that these toxins find a place in our body to live.  In some people they may create a digestive problem, weight issue and the list goes on. Toxins are stored in our fat cells.

I believe in nourishing the body.  When we work together with an elimination program; introducing herbs and foods that can heal the body the toxins can slowly make their way out of the body without creating additional health issues for people.
