The Allure of Botox

Posted by:

Botox, dubbed as “the little neurotoxin that could,” by USA Today. It’s a household name now, isn’t it? Have you tried it? Is it safe? Several friends I know use it to calm forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet and lines around the face. I have to admit they look dang good! I’ve been offered the opportunity to try it. Most of you know I’m about living naturally and cleanly. I am not a fan of putting foreign substances, especially known toxins, ...

Kids and Holiday Anxiety

Posted by:

Holidays are great fun, but let’s face it, don’t we all experience some level of sensory overload and/or anxiety during this time? There’s an overabundance of activities, sugary and not-so-healthy foods, parties, decorations, travel and extra time with family and friends.

Most of us brush at least twice a day. Funny how good health can be derailed when brushing with a germy toothbrush, one with lingering bits of bacteria.  It’s easy to forget, right?
