    Check That Off The List

    Do you ever have little things in life that just drive you crazy but you deal with it or just never really make time to figure out a solution?  Well one of those things for me is when you get to the end of a bottle of lotion, conditioner, body wash, a condiment in the […]

  • Best Defense…Early Detection

    In a world where pink is everywhere in the month of October and donations fly out of pockets I can’t help but cringe.  Organizations talk about early detection and finding cures.  What organization or medical community talks about prevention or reducing your risk???  NONE  ( at least that I hear about)!!!  Why?  If there was […]

  • Guide to Essential Oils

    Who doesn’t love using essential oils these days?  While they are not ‘new’ they sure have become popular over the last few years.  The problem I have is that there is a ton of unsafe usage floating around the internet.  There are several oils that are very common that are not recommended for use with […]

  • Staying Healthy In The Winter

    In the Chicagoland we’ve had some pretty inconsistent weather this fall/winter.  As I put my Christmas light outside after Thanksgiving we still had leaves on the bushes.  I had just told my husband that I remember as a kid we would stuff old jeans and flannels with leaves to make scarecrows for the fall and […]

  • Cancer

    October is a month of breast cancer awareness.  It’s also a month for liver cancer awareness.  Just about every month has some kind of cancer awareness because cancer seems to be WAY to common these days.  One of the things I am passionate about is prevention of all cancers.  For several years now I’ve educated […]

  • Things All Parents Should Know

    What parent doesn’t want the best for their family?  Everyone tries to do everything in their power to do what they believe is best.  What do you do though when the marketing and advertising we see is deceptive?  We’ve all seen the commercials with little boys in the bathroom then “life’s bleachable moments” or ‘Bleach […]

  • Read Labels

    Did you know there is no regulation around what information can be on a product label? If the label says “Green”, ‘Natural” or “Non-Toxic” it must be true, right? WRONG! Unfortunately we can’t trust a label. That is prime real estate for a company to catch your eye and hope you don’t actually check ingredients […]

  • The Dangers of Bleach

    My initial questions I had about why do so many kids have asthma and allergies led into a spider web of information so I’ll try and keep my thoughts organized and start with some of the products in your household that are contributing to repertory issues. First of all is bleach (chlorine bleach), it aggravates […]

  • And so it begins…

    My little disclaimer before I begin my with my findings…I by no means claim to be an expert. Anything you research has ‘facts’ on both sides of the debate/issue as well as 100 things in-between so you have to go with what your gut is telling you and determine what works for you and your […]
