Cancer: What You Are NOT Being Told


Over the years, I have covered the topic of cancer on my page, and we have covered some pretty amazing (albeit controversial) information on the topic that most people never even know, but I have never taken the time to put it into one concise blog post. So here I go.  First, we must get into the truth about cancer that people are not being told. But before we begin, I must issue an obligatory disclaimer: This information has not [...]

Easy Deliciously Healthy Homemade Eggnog


Before we used to eat healthy, my hubby had a tradition of buying a quart of eggnog from the grocery store at least once a week in the month of December.  When we started eating “healthier,” he would buy the organic eggnog. But as we progressed towards fresh, whole foods, we needed to switch from store-bought eggnog to something that was actually healthy and nourishing. What’s wrong with organic eggnog, you ask?!

Infant Reflux–Causes, Solutions, & Dangers of Reflux Meds


Sadly, infant reflux is a growing problem.  Because it causes baby a lot of discomfort, it can take away a lot of the joy that comes with having a new baby, causing more than just physical problems but emotional ones as well.

Medication, I might add, that will only cause the baby to have increasing health problems both now and in the [...]

HFFG's Jar Lids

As Dr. Mercola reports: Plastic often used to make water bottles contains chemicals like BPA and phthalates, which mimic hormones in your body — and which can leach from the bottle during normal consumption. If you leave your water bottle in a hot car or reuse it, your exposure is magnified because heat and stress increase the amount of chemicals that leach out [...]

Before we begin, it’s important to address the problem of chronic dehydration that is so prevalent today. We live in an age full of caffeine [...]

How To Have Yourself A Healthy Holiday Season


Thanksgiving and Christmas is a wonderful time of year for fellowship, family, and of course food. Unfortunately, it can be extremely detrimental to our health. For instance, one study found that holiday food can have a year-round detrimental effect on the health of diabetic and pre-diabetic individuals. “The present study demonstrates an influence of winter holidays on the glycemic control of patients who have type 2 diabetes, and this poor glycemic control might not be reversed during the summer and [...]

Are Your Body Care Products Destroying Your Health?


When trying to live a healthy lifestyle by eating right and exercising, sometimes the last areas we may think to change are our cleaning and personal care products. We pay a lot of attention to what we put in our mouths. We read food labels and see how much sugar, fat, and artificial ingredients are in food products. So why not pay just as much attention to what we put on our skin? Did you know that your skin is your [...]

Hormone Imbalance–The Hidden Cause of So Many Health Problems


Hormone imbalance, namely estrogen dominance, is the cause of more problems than most people realize. Many of these problems are even ones that we joke about because we think they are normal. Yes, they are common, but they are NOT normal! They are NOT healthy. And they are NOT necessary! We CAN eliminate them. PMS is not inevitable. Heavy periods are not normal. Menopause is not normal. (Did you know that some cultures don’t even have a WORD for menopause, [...]
