Natural First Aid Kit Essentials


All too often, I get emails about urgent health situations from people and when listing the things they need right away to treat it, many people do not have those things on hand and turn to conventional therapies which often make the problem worse. These natural things work and work well, but they only work if you have them on hand right away. Many of them can only be ordered online which is of course not ideal in an urgent situation.  So here are the […]

Thickened Formula: An Ineffective Health Risk?


Despite evidence to the contrary, it is still common practice for pediatricians to recommend feed thickeners for infants with reflux and for it to be used in the elderly. Unfortunately, this common practice has not only been repeatedly shown to be ineffective but it has also proven to worsen health. (Much of this info will be on the topic of feed thickener for infants but is also relevant to the use of thickened feed in the elderly as well with some […]

“The Soul is More Important than the Body”–The Phrase That’s Devastating God’s People


“The soul is more important than the body.”  In my six years as a Biblical Natural Health Practitioner, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard people say that in response to conviction to eat healthy. But what they are really saying is,”This is not an area in my life that I want to change.” And it’s so discouraging. It’s heartbreaking. It does not glorify God and it does not help encourage others in the very real and prevalent problems plaguing […]

Secrets to Having Youthful, Healthy Skin Naturally


Now that I’m nearing 40, I’ve been giving more thought to maintaining healthy skin. For me, having healthy skin isn’t just about physical appearance. It’s about physical health. Our skin health is an outward expression of our inner health. And with summer here, it’s even more important to take steps to keep our skin healthy. Unfortunately, most of the skin care products available today are full of toxins that can cause long-term health problems. As always, nourishing our body can and should […]

Questions To Ask Your Raw Milk Farmer Before Drinking the Milk!


So you’ve read my post Milk: Helpful or Harmful or other sources and realize that the only (animal) milk worth drinking is fresh, unpasteurized milk from cows, goats, etc. And now you are on the hunt for a good source of local, fresh, and SAFE raw milk. It’s not just a matter of “Oh, my neighbor has a cow and is selling milk!” There are a few things you should ask about before deciding on a good source of fresh milk. […]

Some Unorthodox Considerations on Lyme Disease


Where I live, ticks are literally a part of everyday life. We have a farm with half of our property being heavily wooded. As a natural health practitioner, I often get asked about my thoughts on Lyme Disease treatment. I’m not going to claim to be anything close to an expert on this complicated and devastating illness. There is much to know and just not enough info out there about this complicated disease yet. For now, I’m simply going to throw some additional considerations […]

NingXia Red 30-Day Challenge! Swap out your sugary drinks with something healthy!


For May, HFFG and Using the Scents God Gave You is doing a 30-day NingXia Red Challenge to encourage people to eliminate their sugary drinks with something that supports health instead!  For six years, I have provided holistic health services to clients from around the world and have seen the difference that making one small change by getting rid of sugary sodas and lattes can have on a person’s health. It is my passion to see people get well and stay well […]

All-Natural Facial Care for Beautiful Skin


Standard facial products from stores contain many toxic ingredients that negatively affect hormones and other body systems. And some facial products promoting youthful skin are made using neonatal (infant) foreskins (and it doesn’t have to be listed on the label)! It’s safe to assume that almost all of the facial/skin care products available at stores and even many of those available through “natural” companies contain toxic and less-than-desirable ingredients. But keeping our skin healthy and our face looking young can be done naturally […]

Finding Safe, Non-Toxic Cosmetics


On HFFG, we recently covered the topic of Home Detox–detoxing our home (and bodies!) of toxic home/body care products like cleaners, soaps, lotions, shampoos, etc. If you missed the free Facebook class we did for this topic, you can click here to check out the info! To follow up that info, I have compiled a list of some of my favorite non-toxic cosmetic products/companies, as well as some companies that aren’t necessarily as non-toxic as they seem and some that are […]

Why Your Doctor’s Allergy Testing Isn’t Accurate


In my experience as a natural health professional, I have seen more situations than I can count where someone demonstrates symptoms of food sensitivities but they believe food cannot be the issue because a doctor’s test came up negative for those foods. So they continue eating foods that are making them sick, and their health problems worsen without this issue being addressed. Here’s the thing: The allergy testing most docs do (and the only testing most docs do) is for IgE […]
