Coconut Milk is a wonderful alternative to pasteurized cow’s milk or to rice, soy or other processed milks. Unfortunately, the cans of most store bought versions of coconut milk are lined with BPA. New refrigerated carton varieties are somewhat better, but can be expensive and many have added sweeteners or preservatives.

Conventional laundry stain treatment solutions are some of the most toxic cleaning products available. They contain harsh detergents, solvents, chemicals like sulfates and parabens as well as a host of artificial colors and scents.

While our bodies can handle small amounts of these, exposure to large amounts of these chemicals over time can cause health problems.

So I compiled a helpful list of effective stain treatments for various types of stains. I keep this list handy when I’m doing laundry.

The thyroid is one of the largest endocrine glands in the body. It’s located in the front of the neck. This gland, when it is not functioning optimally, can create havoc in our lives because it is responsible for making energy. I like to call it both the thermostat and the furnace of the human body ...

This bacon apple chicken is made in a slow cooker. The bacon and apple highlight the barbecue sauce for a smoky flavor.

This time of year, when the common cold is making the rounds, many people turn to Vitamin C to help ward off illness. It can certainly be helpful, but not all forms of Vitamin C are created equal.

Before downing a lot of prepackaged (with artificial colors and sweeteners) packets of Vitamin C, it is important to understand which forms of are most effective and how to safely consume it.

The lymphatic system is a major part of the body’s immune system. It is made up of organs and lymph nodes, ducts and vessels that transport lymph throughout the body. Many of these lymph vessels run just below the skin and proponents of dry brushing claim that brushing the skin regularly helps stimulate the normal lymph flow within the body and help the body detoxify itself naturally. Do you dry brush?

While breastfeeding is the perfect food for baby, at some point, baby will want or need solid food. Ask most mothers you know what their pediatricians recommend as first foods for their babies and most will say oatmeal or rice cereal. After that, most parents get the recommendation to add in fruit purees, starchy veggies like squash, various watered down mixtures of processed meats, over-steamed veggies and eventually a nauseating array of fluffy, puffy, and sweet snacks or juices.

It turns out that not only is this not what mothers do in many parts of the world (including countries with much lower rates of obesity and allergies) but research may not even support it!
