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…

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…

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…

The March Against Monsanto

On Saturday I marched with an estimated 6000 protesters in Portland, Oregon in the March Against Monsanto. We were but a small portion of people marching against Monsanto and GMO foods around the world–there were over 2 million people worldwide who joined in this protest. I didn’t know how many people would show up. I…

Why GMOs Are So Dangerous

Imagine this. There is a new disease that has just popped up in your community. It doesn’t usually kill people right off, but it can seriously impair their health, causing all sorts of issues like diabetes, cancer, and infertility. You don’t want this disease, so you stay away from anyone who has it and you…

30 health e-books for $1.30 each

There are a lot of e-books out there. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty hesitant to spend $10-20 on a digital book. But there’s a lot of health info I want to learn and a lot of real food recipe books I’d like to glean from (especially the grain-free ones). I’d like to…

2012 in Review & Goals for 2013

2012 It’s fun to look back at my yearly goals and see how much I accomplished. I just looked at my list from last year. I had four main goals: Exercise, do the GAPS diet, plan my church music in advance (I select and lead songs for our women’s meeting), and “continue being awesome.” I…

Genetically Modified Foods: Why and How to Avoid

The new documentary Genetic Roulette was available to watch for free online recently (I hope some of my Facebook fans took advantage of the link I provided! It can still be viewed online for a donation of $2.99–It is a MUST WATCH). I knew GMOs were bad, but I had no idea how dangerous they really…
