Stop Dreaming About Quality Sleep and Do Something!
November 20, 2015
An old Chinese proverb states, "Only when one cannot sleep does one know how long the night is." Anyone who's ever experienced an occasional bout with insomnia-and that's most of us-can relate to this all too well.
In fact, surveys have shown that between 40 and 60 percent of the general population has trouble sleeping. Daily stress and worries, pressures from job and family, body aches and pains caused by uncomfortable beds or pillows, and a host of other issues can keep a person from getting enough quality sleep.
The Anti-Aging Aspects of Stretching
Many people stretch, but few truly understand that it's an art and a science. There's a right way and a wrong way to derive all the inherent benefits.
There's an ancient adage that proclaims: "You are as young as your spine is flexible." People who've retained the elasticity of their spines and limbs appear youthful and "alive" in middle age and beyond. Consistency of practice and relaxation are two of the biggest keys in the art of stretching.
Natural Remedies for High Blood Pressure
November 9, 2015
Elevated blood pressure is when the pressure on the arteries and blood vessels becomes too high and the arterial wall becomes distorted causing extra stress on the heart.
Long term-high blood pressure increases the risk of stroke, heart attack and diabetes. Frequently, there are no symptoms as blood pressure increases but warning signs for very high blood pressure can include chest pains, confusion, headaches, ear noise or buzzing, irregular heartbeat, nosebleeds, tiredness, or vision changes.
Delayed Kindergarten Enrollment Dramatically Reduces ADHD In Children, Study Shows
November 7, 2015
Delaying kindergarten enrollment for one year shows significant mental health benefits for children. Researchers found that a one-year delay in enrolling a child in kindergarten dramatically reduces inattention and hyperactivity at age seven.
Researchers found that children who were held back from kindergarten for as little as one year showed a 73 percent reduction in inattentiveness and hyperactivity compared to children sent the year earlier, according to this new study on kindergarten and mental health.
The Best Blueberry Lemon Bread You've Ever Tasted. (And it's Paleo!)
October 28, 2015
Before all of the blueberries disappear, I had to get one more summer dessert in. Take a look at this beautiful Paleo Blueberry Lemon Bread. It's loaded with protein-rich almond flour, nutrient-dense eggs, and oh-so-good-for-you coconut oil.
I'm a creature of habit, and the small rituals of life make me happy. Every Sunday morning I wake up, eat breakfast, and head to my local Farmer's Market. The first place we go is the gluten free bakery booth for Pao de Queijo (or Brazilian cheese bread.) My little one gets one plain and one olive. She eats the plain one right away. If you haven't tried these chewy little breads made with tapioca flour, you are seriously missing out. (Hmmm, I feel a new recipe post coming on!)
California says No to plastic balls in personal care products
October 24, 2015
In a surprising move earlier this month, California Governor Jerry Brown signed what is now the toughest ban in the United States on personal hygiene products that contain microbeads.
AB 888 was authored by Representative Richard Bloom (D-Santa Monica) and sponsored by Californians Against Waste (CAW), 5 Gyres Institute, Clean Water Action, the Story of Stuff Project and the California Association of Sanitation Agencies (CASA). According to Bloom, while there have been other states that have passed similar bans, AB 888 goes a step further to avoid loopholes and ensure that only environmentally-safe alternatives are accepted.

October 19, 2015
One of the most difficult medical conditions to spell is also one of the most common. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain.
A person is afflicted with this medical condition when the tissue tears in the long ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot, called the plantar fascia ligament.

However, many different factors cause the condition.

Benefits of Earthing | Discharging to Heal the Body
Numerous health professionals are evermore stressing the great health benefits of earthing.
Various studies have proven the healing effects of earthing, which has surprisingly been found to be more powerful than the use of antioxidants, pain killer medication, blood sugar regulators and at times even cancer medication.
