You are drinking the wrong wine!

wine

There are practices in wine making that I had no idea about. Although I really like it, I’m not an everyday wine drinker like some of my friends. I have always been interested in the health benefits, as well as the historical and spiritual benefits. My perception of wine making was always a natural one – a vineyard of rolling hills, hand picked and foot squished grapes, and farmhouses filled with oak barrels of fermenting grape juice.

nuts and seeds

Raw, organic nuts (make sure they are raw and organic!) are a great source of healthy, unsaturated fats, fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and plant sterols. Many doctors will recommend nuts as a heart healthy snack food, as evidence has shown that people who eat nuts and seeds have higher overall health, are less likely to suffer from cardiovascular issues, and have less incidence of diabetes.

PEMF is a Pulsed Electromagnetic Field and it’s good for your health

PEMF

Get ready, this is a longer post than we usually do, but most people have not heard of PEMF. We hadn’t either until recently. We are amazed at what we have learned, and excited to share this therapy. PEMF stands for Pulsed ElectroMagnetic Field. A PEMF device sends a magnetic pulse that emits a three dimensional magnetic field into the body. This helps to re-energize the cells by inducing electrical changes within them, which restores the cells to a more normal and healthier state.

The brain-gut connection is no longer folklore. The gut is a viable second brain that links digestion, mood, health, and thought processes. Discover a revolutionary new understanding of tight junctions, the connection between two adjacent cells that are so close the space is almost non-existent.

truMedic TENS Unit

The winner has been chosen! Congratulations Kelly, we hope you love your truMedic TENS unit!

Since the start of 2016, I have been studying electricity and its relationship to healing. You can read what we have shared so far in this post. I was thrilled when truMedic contacted us about doing a product review and giveaway for a TENS unit! I knew these types of machines were commonly used by physical therapists, and coincidently my chiropractor had recently added TENS to her practice. I could deduce what the benefits are by how they are used, but I honestly didn’t know much.

Many features make Sea Buckthorn Berry a very unique super food.

What is a sea buckthorn berry? It is a small orange berry, and like most berries, they are extremely nutrient dense. What makes this berry unique is that it is the world’s richest source of omega 7. Like the goji berry, when harvested from the pristine mountainous land of the Himalayas, you get a superior product. Foods that grow and flourish in areas of high altitude, where temperatures and seasons can be extreme, have to be hearty, and always seem to have extra magical, nourishing powers.

Herbal Ice Cubes

Herbal ice cubes make a cool (pun intended) remedy for hot summer itches and scratches! Bug bites, poison ivy, hives and other allergic skin reactions can keep kids and adults up at night because of the constant discomfort. Kids especially will scratch an itch unconsciously as they are falling asleep, only to wake up the next morning with inflamed skin, not only from the reaction, but from the self inflicted scrapes which can potentially turn into an infection. A great bedtime tip for you to try is to apply herbal ice cubes. (more…)
