Health Benefits of Beef Liver & Organ Meats

January 12, 2024

You may have noticed the increase of chatter surrounding the health benefits of beef liver and other organ meats. The topic is trendy, the act itself is ancestral.  It certainly can look like a trend when a topic gets a big wave of support throughout the wellness community. In some ways, sure, it’s “trendy” to discuss the nose to tail style of consuming animal meats. But, in actuality, consuming organ meats along with muscle meats is a traditional and ancestral way of eating. We have lost a lot of nutrient density to our diets by eliminating the nose to tail traditional way of eating. With the rise of chronic illness, it can be important to pay attention to what our ancestors did or didn’t do. They led healthier lives with less chronic disease.

Eating the whole animal can feel intimidating. But if we only consume muscle meat, we leave behind a plethora of nutrient density that is missing from modern day diets.

9 Most Effective Natural Remedies for a Lingering Cough

January 1, 2024

During this time of year, we are all scrambling to grab the best Natural Cough Remedies. This post will help break down what you need to know when treating an upper respiratory illness. When addressing a cough, it’s important to understand why we develop them in the first place. Coughing is a helpful action by the body. When you become sick, viral or bacterial particles enter the body, and as all things on earth, their goal is to survive. Your body creates a range of different counter reactions to fight off these germs. One way is by producing phlegm and using it to encapsulate germs. Once the body has germs trapped within the mucous it has created, it will try to move this phlegm out of the body. The quickest and most effective way to remove this substance is by way of coughing. That is why when it comes to an acute upper respiratory condition,  it’s important to focus on supporting the cough to remove phlegm rather than suppress it. Over the counter cough suppressants are popular because coughs are inconvenient and uncomfortable. However, suppressing the body’s healing actions can extend the life span of your illness. There is a time and place for suppressants as coughs can come to a point of being unbearable. However, this trend towards medicating every single minor discomfort comes with a cost. If we learn to support our body’s natural abilities in eliminating illness, we are more likely to get ahead of it. If we can get ahead of the germs by eliminating them more effectively, we may eliminate the need for suppression. The body knows what to do, and although there are always exceptions to the rule, understanding its mechanisms makes dealing with sickness so much easier.

10 Health Benefits of Dandy Blend: A Healthy Replacement for Coffee

December 30, 2023

If you’re looking for an alternative to coffee, you aren’t alone. Many people are in this predicament either out of preference or perhaps because their doctor told them to cut back. Some are just looking to cut back on the amount they drink or their dependance on it. There is no denying that coffee has it’s own set of health benefits. Coffee has been noted for it’s ability to reduce risk of diabetes and fight free radicals. However, some people can experience unwanted side effects or are just plain sensitive to its effects. It can also be a culprit for osteoporosis, accelerated aging, weight gain due to blood sugar fluctuations, and anxiety to name a few. It has also been known to be heavily contaminated with pesticides as coffee beans are one of the heaviest sprayed crops.  So, what does one do when they are trying to cut back this infamously addictive beverage?

Organic First Aid Kit for on the Go (What’s in my Purse)

August 1, 2020

Over the years, I have managed to find some of the best quality on the go first aid items to keep in my purse. When you’re out and about with Children its quite often you might find yourself in need of an item for a bruise or a cut. If you don’t have it, then there’s the inconvenient rush to the nearest pharmacy to purchase an option you wouldn’t necessarily opt for. I don’t like being in a pinch when it comes to this scenario and I’m not always going to be near a health food store that can supply me with the options I have vetted over the years, so I have created a little pouch of natural health supports for every scenario I could think of. I continue to add as I go but being over 5 years into Motherhood, I’ve pretty much nailed down most of the necessities. These options aren’t just for kids, you can carry these around for yourself and to have on hand to offer to others if they are in need.
