Can a Cavity Be Healed With Nutrition?

Can a cavitiy be healed with nutrition?

I’ve probably had 15-20 cavities filled in my 32 years. Up until a few years ago, I always thought that cavities were just an annoying thing that happened, and there wasn’t a whole lot we could do to avoid getting at least a few. Lower your sugar intake, brush and floss well, and you’ll get less, right? When they do happen, simply get it drilled, and if you’re health conscious you can choose the white fillings over the silvery ones containing mercury. End of story. […]

This is a tale of how a mom can take charge of her family’s health. It isn’t necessarily meant to read like a “how-to” (although you may find what I share useful), nor is it meant to make some sort of definitive statement about doctors and home remedies and antibiotics (although some may read that into it). Rather, it is meant to be a descriptive story of one situation where I used a simple remedy to deal with a health concern that supposedly required medication. […]

9 Toxins to Remove from your Life

Written by Rachel, Contributing Writer With my husband being a doctor, I have learned and am constantly learning new information about things in our everyday life that are dangerous to our health and are making our bodies toxic. Although you might not know it, there are environmental, household, food and life factors that play a role in how toxic you are.

Written by Shannon, Contributing Writer When I was a teenager I used to get several colds every winter. Along with that came the inevitable bouts of bronchitis and/or pneumonia. Every year without fail. Looking back I can’t help but laugh because now I know why I was always sick. My immune system was shot because I ate junk, never gave my body proper rest, and had destroyed my gut through many rounds of antibiotics. The good news is we can recover and build our immune […]

Today I’m over at Simple Organic, sharing about my journey with PCOS and natural ways to treat it through lifestyle changes. Call me naive.

My health was far from superb, but I certainly didn’t think that there was anything seriously wrong with me. A friend suggested that I just get myself checked out, and I was surprised […]

Healing Rashes While Cloth Diapering

Healing Balms

Written by Sherrie Cook, Contributing Writer There are many reasons to choose cloth diapers for your baby.  Many mums choose cloth to aid in the prevention of diaper rashes. Cloth diapers are breathable, allowing air to flow freely through them.  This  constant air movement provides a natural, dry environment without using harsh chemicals next to baby’s skin.  In most cases, rashes are “gone with the wind”. Unfortunately, not even using cloth guarantees a rash-free childhood for your little one.  Rashes in the diaper area can […]
