Who Do We Appreciate

Herbal Diet Pills: Safety and Effectiveness

The Amazing Aloe Vera

My mother housed aloe vera plants throughout our home.  Every burn was soon met with a snipped aloe limb, clear juices dripping from the end.  The soothing aloe gel relieved numerous pains during my growing years.  Yet, today it is available for treating a lot more than just sunburns and other skin irritations.  Aloe’s uses […]

Soothing Bach Flower Essences

A long walk through fields of blazingly bright wildflowers has a way of rekindling the human spirit, returning home feeling invigorated and hopeful. So hopeful in fact, that one longs to bottle whatever essence these flowers provide and carry it around forever. Dr. Edward Bach attempted this feat in the early 1900s, and his products […]

Protein…How Much Is Too Much?

I’m sure your mother always told you if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all. But come on. Be realistic.
