Cleansing and detoxification:  why should we do it? 

Cleansing is the process of eliminating toxins from the body.  We live with toxic build up every day, in our water, the air we breathe, even in the food we eat.  There are two main toxins: exotoxins come from an outside source which we inhale and ingest.  Endotoxins are created internally by the food we eat.  Undigested food can putrefy, creating toxins that damage cells, tissues and organs in the body.

We all have them, but until we become congested, we are unaware of their existence. 

With fall fast approaching, so is another round of sinus allergies.  Facial pain and pressure, nasal stuffiness, loss of smell and discharge are common symptoms of sinusitis.  So what are sinuses?

The sinuses are cavities in your skull.  They are air pockets located inside the bones in the skull.  Our Sinus cavities are lined with very hair-like projections called cilia.

Asthma and Allergy Solutions

There is no hiding the rise on asthma increases in Canada these days.  It has increased 160% from 1980-1994.  Why is there such a large increase?

One factor seems to be our modern lifestyle, complete with fast food and fast cars.  We have created a polluted world not only outside, but in our household as well.  Our ancestors did not load themselves with super-size anything.  We eat too much sugar, too much fat, too much period.  The more we venture from our evolutionary diet the more difficult it is for our bodies to function properly.

As summer is here we must start looking for a good sun screen, keeping your skin healthy and nourished. 

If you are out in the sun a long time it is important to wear sun screen and apply it every two hours. If you go swimming you should re-apply. Sun screen protects the skin from harmful rays of the sun that can cause many problems with skin. Although sunscreen is made to protect the skin, some brands contain harmful ingredients that can actually be bad for your skin.

Native to Australia, the tea tree flourishes in the wet swampy ground of northern New South Wales and Queensland. 

The leaves and small branches are picked year round for distillation into essential oils.

This tree rapidly became a valued remedy used by the European settlers to treat cuts, burns and insect bites. Tea tree soon became widely recognized as a powerful disinfectant.

May 31, 2016 - 7:47am

We eat on the go, chew too fast and too little.

For many, mineral and vitamin consumption is low and the foods we eat have been highly processed, hampering our body’s ability to maintain a healthy gut flora. Add to this high stress levels and the over use of antibiotics and pain killers, harmful bacteria can quickly take over.

Silver lining is a unique blend of prebiotics, probiotics and digestive enzymes, formulated to promote a healthy gut flora and enhance the immune system. 

Diatomaceous Earth

May 14, 2016 - 8:50am

Few people give much thought to lowly diatoms, single –celled marine microorganisms that are found in large bodies of water. However, when these tiny organisms die, their skeletal remains settle to the bottom, become fossilized overtime and accumulate to produce one of nature’s most beneficial and healthful substances: diatomaceous earth.
