Miracle Cream

Homemade Healing Teas

Teas you make yourself will be more potent and flavorful. Plus, you know EXACTLY what’s in the them. Herbal teas can be very yummy and super flavorful and can deliver 50-90% of the medicinal qualities of the herbs used. The teas that you make yourself, at home, will be even more potent and flavorful and will cost you more than half the price to make than buying it already made for you. I’m all for experimenting with different herbs and creating your own blend! But be careful to avoid any that you can’t identify confidently being edible or any that […]

Stress Can Kill

I’m not kidding when I say that. Stress has also been linked to some common medical problems like Alzheimer’s, heart disease, gastrointestinal problems, depression, asthma, headaches, diabetes, and the list goes on! Stress doesn’t just make us feel like poo emotionally, it can also exacerbate just about every health condition you can name off the top of you head and then some. Our cells grow at an increased rate when we are stressed, making us grow older than we really are, and making us more prone to age-related diseases, like heart disease and diabetes.  When we are stressed out, our bodies release […]

Run to Your Happy Place

Sole Searching I’ll be honest…I’m not a runner. I have tried so many times to pick up running and because I’m not good at it, I have given up. Yep. Every time. But that hasn’t stopped me from wanting to be better at it. I will try again (once it gets cooler again). Continuing on… During my times of when I was running daily, I noticed how awesome I felt afterwards. That is, after I laid on my floor thinking I was going to die, and finally recovered, I noticed. Have you ever noticed how a good run leaves you […]

Fit Vs. Skinny

Let’s talk about how to NOT set yourself up for disappointment. Everyone wants to be skinny. It’s the main reason a lot of people start to exercise. To lose some weight, and then some more, and then just a little bit more. We’re never satisfied. Especially with those that are relatively new to fitness and eating healthy. It’s hard for us to finally be happy with what we have accomplished. But, should skinny really be the ultimate goal of losing weight? I want to stop right here for a moment though. Some of us are just naturally skinny. We’re born […]
