Hema-Plex Blood Builder

As I wrote in a previous entry, I am severely anemic. I don’t know what’s going on with our mail, we haven’t received any at all for about a week. Our paychecks come in the mail, so money is really tight right now. All that to say: I ran out of Floradix Iron + Herbs … Continue reading


At my appointment with my naturopath in November, I told him that I was still having palpitations. He prescribed CoroCalm, 20 drops, 2-3 times a day. I was having fluttering, skipped beats & tachycardia (fast heartbeat). I started taking CoroCalm on 14 November. By the 3rd day, I noticed a huge improvement. There was a … Continue reading

Busy & Exhausted

I haven’t had time to try anything new!  With Thanksgiving, the Baker’s birthday, Hanukkah & MOVING, I’ve been too exhausted.  I had blood drawn for a 50-point blood test.  I was expecting anemia & hypothyroidism.  Well! What I got was severe anemia (my ferritin was 5, should be about 40!), hypoglycemia, zinc deficiency & metabolic … Continue reading

To Pull Or Not To Pull

I’ve been oil pulling for a while now. My digestion is slightly improved. My gums are quite pink, but have been VERY sensitive lately. My skin condition has not cleared up at all, and I’m still having the usual issues that I’ve written about before. I don’t know if I should continue or not. At … Continue reading

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

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

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

21 Day Green Smoothie Detox

My sister & I are doing this green smoothie detox.  It starts next week, I think, with this week being prep week.  Wow, I used “week” 3 times in one sentence. Will I be able to give up coffee?  I’ve given it up several times before.  Actually, I give it up every year for a … Continue reading
