A Return to Blogging

Hi friends. If you are still following my blog, thank you. I’ve taken a long hiatus. When I became pregnant with my second baby, my energy dropped so much that it was difficult to write, and then I gave birth to her and lost a huge amount of my free time. Then I had another baby…

The Truth About Vaccines!

The Truth About Vaccines, a documentary series done by the same guy who investigated cancer and cancer treatments in The Truth About Cancer series, starts tonight. TTAC was so thorough, so I believe this one will also be very thorough. As I’ve stated before, I’m not anti-vaccine. Even though I see the benefits viruses and bacteria…

Vaccines Revealed Docuseries

Last night I finished up listening to the 9th episode of the docuseries Vaccines Revealed. Because I was busy, I missed part of episode 1, all of episode 2 and part of episode 3, but after that I made a point to listen to everything–which isn’t easy when you have little children and a household…

Are Vaccines Proven to be Safe?

I think this may be my first time writing about vaccines, ever. I don’t like controversy, for one thing. For another, I haven’t read every single study out there, and I haven’t studied immunology or pathology, so I’m not an expert on vaccines. However, I am fairly good at reasoning. And when it comes to…

The Food Allergies

I know I haven’t posted for months. I have some catching up to do, including sharing about the birth of my sweet baby five months ago! But today my mind is on food allergies. While I was pregnant, my son’s diet took a backseat. I was just really struggling with being pregnant–the nausea, the food…

Red Raspberry Leaf Kombucha

I’ve just discovered something wonderful and wanted to share. I figured I’d be drinking my rooibos kombucha throughout pregnancy, as rooibos and ferments both have benefits in pregnancy. However, I had grown tired of the rooibos, and mostly stopped drinking it months ago. And all this time I knew I should be drinking red raspberry…

Anti-inflammatory Diet for Pregnancy

Because of my supposed higher risk for developing preeclampsia during pregnancy, my midwife gave me an anti-inflammatory diet to follow. Preeclampsia, it turns out, is an autoimmune disease in which the body reacts to the foreign DNA from the baby’s father. Autoimmune diseases can be treated with an anti-inflammatory diet; likewise, such a diet may…

30 Weeks: Pregnancy Update

I thought that when I reached 30 weeks in this pregnancy, I’d be dismayed that there was still so much time to go. It’s felt like forever to get this far, and I’m only 3/4 there. But now that I’m here, 10 weeks left seems like barely enough time to get ready for the big…

Is Real Foodism Really to Blame for Orthorexia?

Concerns about orthorexia are storming through the health diet world. Or should I say anti-diet world? Is it something you should be concerned about? If you are trying to improve your health by changing the food you eat, then I would say you should at least be aware of it. Especially if you have perfectionistic…

I’m Still Here!

I haven’t posted anything in months, but I assure you, this blog has been alive and well in my head. Being pregnant really takes a toll on me. It’s been all I can do to eat and sleep enough. Actually, I never feel like I eat or sleep enough. It’s pretty exhausting. I’m 25 weeks pregnant…

Growing a New Little Person

I am pregnant!! I’m nine weeks along today, and my baby has graduated from being an embryo to being a fetus. Yay! I also had my first midwife appointment today, so I figure I might as well round out this monumental day by announcing it to you guys. I actually would have announced it weeks…

Learn How to Truly Nourish Your Children

As I mentioned in my previous article, the non-profit organization Nourishing Our Children is having an 8-day promotion as part of their 8-year anniversary celebration. Nourishing Our Children has being an incredibly valuable resource to me as I have striven to learn how to nourish my child. Even though I was feeding him natural, real,…
