What’s In Your Feminine Products…

Have you ever taken the time to think about the things that you’re putting into your body ladies.  I’m not talking about food but other things such as lotions and dare I say it….tampons.  Yes tampons!  Most women use them once a month and most women are unaware that the companies that make them bleach them with chlorine! What was weird was that I had never thought about that aspect of what I was putting into my body until I walked down the aisle of my local EarthFare and saw NatraCare.  They are a company that makes natural feminine products.

Interesting Uses for Coconut Oil I felt this was necessary because a friend told me about how she uses coconut oil as a shaving cream.  At first I thought, she meant she put it into a shaving cream and she said no...instead of shaving cream.  Of course, my curious nature had to try that out and guess WORKED!!!

Eczema…The Disease With No Cure?

A note for Jazmin Fitness CEO, Jazmin Truesdale. Eczema… …Sigh…The bane of my existence.  As a long sufferer of severe eczema I can honestly say that the road to alleviating one’s eczema can be short if you are lucky and out grow it…or long if you don’t outgrow it and don’t have the right support around you.  Mostly because the reason or cause of everyone’s eczema is different and it also manifests itself in different ways. I developed eczema in the 6th grade after coming back from a vacation to the Bahamas.  It wasn’t until years later that I realized it […]

How To Eat Soy…

[TheChamp-Sharing] Soy… It’s a lovely vegetable with excellent health benefits…yeah I tried to do that in my best Mrs. Cleaver voice.  The truth is soy is good for you when processed a certain way and eaten in moderate quantities.  But I’m pretty sure no manufacturing company is going to tell you that because it would hurt the sales of their products since soy is in just about…EVERYTHING from packaged foods to lotions and hair care products! What most people don’t know is that the majority of the soybeans used to make products in this country are genetically modified (GM) and […]

Flu Season and Natural Antibiotics

[TheChamp-Sharing] Oh, the dreaded flu season.  I can honestly say that I was not a sickly child mostly thanks to my stepmother who was a stickler for healthy eating.  I’ve had the flu maybe two or three times in my entire life and the most recent time I had actually gotten a flu shot that year!  Well after that you can imagine I haven’t had a flu shot since. Is this to say you shouldn’t get flu shots?  No, by all means get them if they work for you but so far I have been doing just fine without them. […]

The Truth About Hunger

[TheChamp-Sharing] “I think I’m going to take an appetite suppressant to help me lose weight,” my friend told me the other day when we were eating lunch. “Why on earth would you do that? You barely eat anything as it is. If you take a suppressant you will officially become anorexic,” was my reply. Eating is essential for human beings in order for us to survive.  Hunger is what tells us when to eat.  So you can imagine how baffled I was when my friend told me she basically wanted to suppress the very thing that was keeping her alive.
