I’m not much for daytime television but I do occasionally watch Dr. Oz. What I like about Oz is he’s not all about slice and dice. He is very much an advocate for alternative medicine and natural therapies. I find this refreshing and very informative. If you’ve seen his show you know what I’m talking [..]

Your body is similar to your car – if you don’t take care of the little things – they can turn into bigger things! Well that’s pretty profound isn’t it? Yet many of us have had a tune up or an oil change on our car more recently than dealing with that nagging lower back [..]

Lavender Oil is one of if not the most versatile essential oils on the planet. I’d say every household should have Lavender oil as part of their first aid kit or medicine cabinet. I don’t know of anyone who doesn’t love the smell of Lavender either, so in addition to its’ therapeutic benefits, a home [..]

There is nothing much more painful than plantar fasciitis (PF) when it comes to foot problems. PF can make your arches feel like they are falling through the floor! In other cases the pain can be concentrated in the heel and can often be misdiagnosed as heel spurs. So what is it? In simple terms PF is [..]

  Aloe Vera is possibly the most popular and well known herbs in today’s society. It grows as a large, cactus-like plant; in fact, many people think it actually is a cactus, when in fact it’s actually part of the lily family’s succulent “aloes.” Most people already know that Aloe Vera is wonderful for pain, [..]

This is a great little article from Dr. Ben Kim on pain killers. Most of us take a pill or two from time to time to help us through our aches and pains. But are we taking the right thing? Although I disagree somewhat with the Dr.’s assessment on icing an injury – as I believe [..]

It’s true – prescription drugs are killing us. In the US alone, unintentional deaths caused by prescription drugs have risen 68% from 1999 to 2004 (the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention). We know from the 6 o’clock news that prescription drugs are rapidly becoming the drug of choice for children and young adults. [..]

Imagine being able to wear an infrared heating pad while going about your daily activities – without knowing that you are? We know that heat helps soothe the discomfort of chronic pain. And most of have heard of the use of light therapy and infrared to rejuvenate tissue’s cellular health. What most people are not [..]

AROMATHERAPY DEFINED…….   Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for improving or maintaining health and beauty. Essential oil is extracted from plants and is very concentrated in their final form. Essential oil used in Aromatherapy has therapeutic properties that are used to treat a wide variety of physical and emotional maladies. Essential oils are [..]

Runner or jumper – cardio fitness is of course a fantastic way to start and maintain a good foundation for a healthy body. I never used to think about salt too much other than it is a great way to add flavor to just about everything. There’s been much ado about the lack of Vitamin D in most of our diets these days.
