Health resolutions you can KEEP!

The new year is here, which means most of us are making a list of resolutions. Unfortunately, studies show that most New Year's resolutions only last about three weeks before we settle back into our old habits. There are many reasons people don't stick to their resolutions, from setting too many of them to getting discouraged by small failures. When it comes to health goals in particular, setting overly ambitious and restrictive goals is one major cause of failure. Don't worry, it's not all bad news! Small, incremental lifestyle changes can be the difference between success and failure. Committing to moderate, realistic goals and making small changes every day will set you on the path to better health! Here are some great, attainable goals you...

Bright and Shiny!

Some of you may remember a few years ago when our Bio Defense got a pretty new label. We just couldn't wait to get that lovely, shiny, waterproof label on all of our products. But, as life goes... sometimes things don't exactly work out in our preferred timing.

A few years ago, I created a "cheat cheat" that I give to my midwifery clients when their baby is born, and I'd love to share it with you here! I hope that this remedy chart helps you when you're up at 3 AM with an uncomfortable, fussy baby and you're not sure what to do!  Problem Herbal Formula Suggestion Essential Oil Suggestion Homeopathic Suggestion Alternative Therapy Colds Propolis...

What to expect during a holistic health consultation

Many more years ago than I'd care to admit, when I was a young mother studying herbology, I had a consultation with a woman who practiced Iridology and Applied Kinesiology (muscle testing). I was fascinated with how easily and accurately she recognized my health issues, and it was at that point that my journey towards finding and developing my own gift for health consulting began. I have since studied many different modalities of identifying disease in the body, such as Iridology, Chinese face mapping, or Ayurveda tongue reading. These ancient tools, along with muscle testing and what I believe to be a gift from the spirit for visualizing energies are what I use to help my clients achieve optimal health. Some might...
