Is Your Loved One Drinking Too Much?

Death of a spouse and loss of our longtime home or severe illness may lead to isolation or loneliness, which may up consumption. U.S. widowers over 75 have the highest rate of alcoholism. Lifestyle changes are difficult at any age.

10 Tips to Outsmart Allergies

Vitamin C- It’s a powerful antioxidant that prevents histamine from being made, rather than blocking its action at the cell’s doorway like a drug (antihistamine). It also reduces inflammation and helps with immune function.

Orange Juice: Say It Ain't So

Creepy on many levels, one company reformulated their healthy-heart juice adding fish oil, sardines, filthy tilapia, and fish gelatin for the Omega 3.

Hospice: The Last Responder

Hospice cares for all people diagnosed with a terminal illness regardless of diagnosis, race, nationality, sex, religious affiliation, availability of a caregiver, monetary worth or ability to pay.

When Does Collecting Become Hoarding?

Collectors have a sense of pride about their items. Hoarders may be embarrassed. Collectors display items. Hoarders hide items.

Most of us are not going to be card-carrying hoarders. We can, however, do our children a favor, and stop taking tangible, dust-catching gifts at a certain point. My family knows if “I can’t eat, smell, or spend it, don’t give it to me.”

Cooking Oils Are Not All Good for You

This is one of my favorite oils because you can use it at high temperatures, the flavor is mild and it contains antioxidants like vitamin E. It has both omega 3 and 6 fatty acids. Do not confuse tea seed oil with the essential oil of “tea tree” which cannot be ingested.

Watch in awe the variety change in harmony with the season, like when stone fruit, apples, pumpkins and cider begin to appear. Growing food and supporting local farmers markets are karmic ways to serve Mother Earth while obtaining the freshest, most nourishing energy-packed, health-creating produce.
