Are man-made fragrances making you sick? For many the thought of their laundry or personal care products being a source of unwanted cancer-promoting chemicals in their household sounds strange. But for someone who is trying to figure out how to heal from long-term disease or why they are sick in the first place, man-made fragrances will be a part of the puzzle, and should be understood….
My goal is to increase knowledge and understanding of what is a normal in a newborn so a new Mom who wishes to breastfeed her baby can accomplish that which she has set out to do. It is not my desire that this post cause pain or guilt to those, who for many reasons, find that they cannot nurse such as those on medication or chemotherapy.
This visual is brilliant!
Being a visual learner, I have always done better with a picture! When I saw Katie’s infographic on Facebook (from Babies First Lactation) it was my hope that lots of people (Moms, Dads, and extended family members) could gain understanding from it. The La Leche League also has a valuable visual here.
Last post, I showed Evidence that Turmeric Beats Prozac, Ibuprofen, and More: such as Lipitor, corticosteroids, Metformin, and a whole host of other anti-inflammatory drugs….all with no-side-effects. Turmeric golden paste is a powerful way to get these benefits.
Traditionally turmeric is used in curries in India where there are much lower rates of cancer, Alzheimer’s, and other chronic diseases than in the West. Our daughter visited India last year and found the spice remains widely used wherever she traveled.
So, many are asking, “How do I take it and how much?”
While I’ve used this turmeric for 8 years with happy results (no pun intended) for its anti-inflammatory effects and truly amazing Alzheimer-prevention powers, I did not realize that it was also a painkiller and natural mood elevator of the first order!
One of the things I love about what I do here at Deep Roots at Home is coming across hard scientific research that points to the safety and efficacy of many of the herbs and plants we have available to us. In many ways, naturally-occurring remedies surpass pharmaceutical drugs especially when we consider the terrible side-effects pharmaceuticals are known for, especially anti-depressants.
I’ve slowly figured out why I’ve had so many early miscarriages and multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS) all my life. I react so fast to so many things and have had respiratory arrests (stopped breathing) and headaches/migraines with aura when exposed to simple things like car exhaust, mold, crop dust, grasses and perfumes. Brain fog and the feeling of slogging thru sand had become a regular part of my life. At 64, I am just really starting to grasp the connection to methylation problems.
Though hot cocoa is a winter classic, making this super-charged hot cocoa could conceivably rival your morning coffee all year ’round. You might even experiment, adding coffee to this recipe and invent your own brain-awakening, satisfying Starbucks-esque caffè mocha cuppa! To your healthy, I say!
Want to slow down aging and increase your overall strength, stamina and mental sharpness? I know I do, so I’ve been playing around with using coconut oil and turmeric together (there she goes again with the turmeric and the coconut oil!) daily for a way to boost brain power and overall immune system capacity. Add a few other super-foods as part of your routine, and there you have it:
Dosage Per Day For Medicinal Value
Drinking this super-food hot cocoa every day could very well keep the doctor away. My husband and I drink a cup of this twice a day and he has seen big results in his joint pain and general inflammation. See below for the reasons I can make that statement. (Note: If you get too close to bedtime, the caffeine in the cocoa could keep you awake).
