Apple Cider Vinegar Elixir

We’ve had some illness around here lately.  Pneumonia, sniffles, upset tummies.  Not sure what I’ve got but it’s not terrible.  I’ve been hearing about the benefits of apple cider vinegar for years but was hesitant to to try them because I’m particularly fond of the taste of ACV. But then I found this Sweet Apple … Continue reading

Oil Pulling: Day 21

Am I really on day 21?  I wanted to read this book before I started but I was too anxious to get started & never bought the book: My gums are even pinker now.  My teeth look slightly whiter.  But I’ve got a coat on my tongue.  A thin, white coat is normal & healthy. … Continue reading

Salty Foot Soak

I saw this on Pinterest.  Just about everyone loves a foot bath.  I certainly do, so I had to try this one. I linked it but apparently, the recipe isn’t there anymore.  So here it is: 1/2 cup Epsom salt 1/2 cup baking soda 1/8 cup hydrogen peroxide 3% 10 drops of essential oil (I … Continue reading

Oil Pulling: Days 3-8 And A Tooth Powder Recipe

On the 3rd day of oil pulling, I noticed that the taste in my mouth wasn’t nearly as bad as the day before.  It hasn’t been that bad since!  I’m thankful for that because Day 2 was so nasty!  I haven’t examined my tongue because I think tongues are gross, even my own.  It’s the … Continue reading

Bug Bite Salve

I bought this bug bite salve kit from Bulk Herb Store last month (it was on sale) & finally got around to making it.  It was super easy, really no effort at all!  I made this yesterday so we haven’t got bitten yet.  We’re going camping soon, so that might change.  But…I did make Four … Continue reading

Oil Pulling: Day 2

Several weeks ago, I saw lots of posts on FB & Pinterest about oil pulling. I read a little about it & wanted to try it. I got my shipment of coconut oil on Saturday & started oil pulling on Sunday. I’ll post links in tomorrow’s or the next day’s entry. This picture is a … Continue reading

Oopsie

After reblogging the Agave Fruit salsa recipe, I read this article on the dangers of agave nectar. :(. I don’t believe everything I read, of course, but my sister had mentioned this to me before & I think Dr. Mercola spoke about this. I’ve been meaning to buy some more agave but keep forgetting. I … Continue reading

Apple Cider Vinegar As Deodorant

I came across this article about using apple cider vinegar as an antiperspirant/deodorant.  I was impressed with the author’s experience & so I tried it myself. The first day, I was just home doing my usual things.  Mr. Fix-It stopped by in the late afternoon & asked if I’d go with him to a job.  … Continue reading

Thankful For Instincts (and knowledge)

I read an article this morning that proved what I suspected & knew about that green smoothie detox program. And I learned about oxalate & how, in high doses, it contributes to candida/fungal infections. So, blending high oxalate veg with high sugar fruits (recommended by the woman leading the detox) will definitely lead to increased … Continue reading

Green Smoothie…Detox?

I’m not sure where the smoothie guru is getting her detox information. Someone asked her if she could add fresh lemon juice to her water during the 1 day water fast. Smoothie guru said absolutely not! Why? Because it would strain the body too much to digest the juice. Umm…it’s lemon juice. Not meat. That … Continue reading
