TOXIC! Yes! Not only are they toxic for you and your family but also for your four legged friends. Cats and dogs, just like humans, also have lungs and we are creating a toxic environment for them if we are using air fresheners. What kind of air fresheners am I referring to? Read below.
Cold showers, yes! You may be wondering what’s so special about a cold shower? Oh, wait. Before I get into the benefits of a cold shower, I should explain how I came about this subject.
Lip balms, everyone uses them, in fact daily. Especially when it’s cold outside, our lips become dry and then we reach often for a lip balm to protect our lips.
The cold season is here and some of us, especially in Southern California, are not accustomed to colder temperatures.
Giving your liver a break is easier than you think. Bitter foods are not everyones favorite but can be very beneficial to your health by keeping your liver functioning at its optimal level.
During the holidays we tend to eat more sugar. It is tempting, gingerbreads, cakes, and pies. But eating all of this sugar can cause our bodies to crave more sugar and makes our organs work harder. It’s like a non stop process. To halt this, we can incorporate more bitter foods which in return help to wipe our palette clean, rid sugar cravings, and simply give our liver a break.

Moor, fen, marsh, or a swamp; they are the most healing and beneficial bodies of water.
Those muddy looking waters, who would want to jump into that? Well, after I clarify how healing and beneficial these moors and marshes can be, I guarantee you'll want to hop in.
What is it?
A moor/marsh/swamp/bog is a special wet habitat that often appear in valleys or slopes. They are characterized by a severe runoff of water and their floors are made up of mostly air and oxygen. No water equals no marsh. Everywhere in the world where there is sufficient water and the climate allows peat-forming vegetation, a moor may arise. Moors or marshes contain decomposed plant material such as leaves, branches and bark from the nearby grounds and forests. After decomposition occurs, rich carbon substances form leaving these bodies of water rich with minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and iron.
How important is clean water and salt for the body?
In our affluent society millions of people suffer from obesity, slagging and thus resulting in diseases. The causes: sedentary lifestyle, eating too many calories - and chronic lack of water and salt. It sounds strange that too little water and salt makes us fat, lazy, sick and prematurely old. Finally, we have an abundance of water and salt is regarded as white poison rather than white gold. However, we mainly consume chemically manufactured drinks instead of drinking pure water, seasoning with worthless common salt (sodium chloride) instead of full-fledged natural salt. The physician Dr. Barbara Hendel from Herrsching in Upper Bavaria has dealt with international research on curative effects of natural spring water and salt. With biophysicist Peter Ferreira she summarized the findings in the book "Water & Salt - source of life".
