Are You Ready to Switch to Natural Cleaners?

Have you ever stopped for a minute to consider exactly what you are using when cleaning your house? Unfortunately, some of the ingredients can be down right scary, and yet we breathe them in, touch them with our hands and feet and let our kids stick everything in their mouths!

Why Do I Need to Detox?

This time of the year can be two-fold for many people. On one side, we want to get in shape and lose weight and have tons of motivation to do so. On the other side, we’re drained from the holidays, tired, in a brain fog and frustrated. To steal the term from Dr. Mark Hyman, many of us suffer from FLC Syndrome – Feel Like Crap Syndrome.

What does this mean? We ALWAYS seem to be tired, drained, sore, and achy. If this sounds like you, a detoxification program will work wonders for you. Now, before I go on, many people get freaked out by talking about a “detox”. In reality, when done correctly using a legitimate and researched program, detoxification programs can be extremely effective. Here are just 3 of the benefits to cleansing.

Are you Taking Echinacea this Winter?

Echinacea is a North American coneflower that has been used for over 400 years as an herbal remedy. Echinacea was much more popular before the introduction of antibiotics, however, it is regaining popularity due to the many health benefits it provides. Many of Echinacea’s chemical constituents are, in fact, powerful immune system stimulators and can provide a significant therapeutic value.

Here are some of the benefits of taking Echinacea:

Boosts the Immune System – According to a study, Echinacea cuts the chances of catching a common cold by 58%. If you do catch a cold, it can cut down the duration of the cold by one and a half days.

Alleviates Pain - It is an especially effective natural pain reliever for the following types: bowels, headaches, herpes, gonorrhea, measles, sore throats, toothaches and tonsillitis.
