Healthy Poops

However, the truth is your body provides you a way to gauge how it’s functioning every day, if you know how to interpret the signs.

Honey and Bees

Honey can be floral, fruity, woody, nutty, earthy, smoky or spicy, depending upon its source of nectar. It can smell like an aged cheese or fresh as grass. It can look almost as clear as water or as thick and dark as molasses. No matter how it tastes, looks or smells, honey has amazing properties, and there’s so much that you probably don’t know about it and the little creatures that create it.

Swaddling for Newborns

The practice of swaddling was used for thousands of years and quite popular until the 1700’s when it was slowly abandoned as many cultures considered it to be old fashioned or barbaric. However, it has remained popular in Europe and there now appears to be a resurgence of the practice in North America, especially among those in the holistic movement. Every decision a new parent makes comes with some apprehension; this one should be a little easier with more information.

Tonics and Elixirs

For thousands of years, before even ancient Egypt and Rome were using them, it was understood that the Earth had provided us all we needed to improve our health. Whether it was a digestion problem, skin condition, energy issue, weakened immune system or just seasonal allergies, there was something that could be extracted, blended, or mixed from herbs, bark, flowers, etc. into a tonic or elixir to help relieve it – and it’s still true today.

Off-Gassing

There are some scents that we can all easily identify: freshly cut grass, a warm baby, or a new car. But, of those, only one of them is toxic.

Simply Smiling

It’s one of the first things that we want to see our babies do and it’s something that we look for as soon as we see a loved one or catch the eye of someone across the room. It’s the universal sign of friendliness and expresses feelings of happiness or delight. But there’s so much more to smiling than many realize.

Decreasing Dairy

The purpose of food is to provide our body with the fuel it needs to do what we require in a day. However, so much of what we consume is pre-packaged and overly processed, leading to a lack of actual nutrition. One of the key factors in living a wellness lifestyle is making wiser dietary decisions. Due to a particular protein found in some milk and dairy products called casein, decreasing dairy may be something for you to consider.

Stress Free Home for the Holidays

If it’s hard to remember a holiday season that wasn’t stress-filled, then it’s time to take a step back and try to focus on the true purpose of the holidays. The arrival of November should never feel like a reason to consider hiding out until January.
The holiday season is busy; there’s no doubt.

Exercise During Pregnancy

Pregnancy is one of the most important times of a woman’s life and its vital that the body is healthy and prepared to support the baby as it grows. Diet and exercise remain the two most essential factors in a healthy pregnancy.

Wellness Outdoors

Many parents look back to their childhood and can remember riding bikes down the street, playing ball with friends, or climbing trees and digging in the dirt. Where do all of those things take place? Outdoors.
