Follow Your Healthy Instincts

A girl resisting what she is being told.

I’m writing this on Mother’s Day – a western tradition where we take a day to reflect on our moms. One thing that stands out when I think of “mothers” is instinct. All mothers have a natural instinct that is built into our DNA to protect our offspring – this applies to everything. Consider a mother duck […]

The #1 Thing I Do To Stay Healthy

Multivitamin with several vitamins in a single pill.

I have been in the health and wellness business for decades. Actually, I’d say that I was born holistic. As a young kid, I’d never let my mom know if I didn’t feel well; I’d just let my body deal with it on its own. I still do. I rarely get sick, though. My mom […]

Why Slowing Down Is Good For Your Health

Hectic business shoes exhausted, fuming hot, isolated on white

Most people today are on the go-go-go. So many people around the world are stuck in “5th gear”, and there is little time to down-shift.

Keep It Real – Buy Local

A little boy has an outdoor homemade lemonade stand with a sign and he looks happy for a small business or money concept.

Do you remember selling home-made lemonade as a kid? While your mom or dad helped you make a pitcher of fresh-squeezed lemons sweetened with sugar, your “business partner” was setting up a rickety folding table in the front yard, and making signs. I wonder how many of these kids (including you and me) wound up […]

We Have The Solutions – We Just Aren’t Using Them

A highway sign that says Changes Ahead Exit Right

I’m from Dallas, and the senseless shootings that happened in Dallas this past week inspired this article. It got me thinking about the increasing changes in America today, and the solutions, that are right in front of us. I never thought of myself as a social commentator; I’m an educator. But, I am discovering that to […]

Open Your Mind To Modern Health, And Other Stuff

A drawing of a head with positive words written in it.

Do you consider yourself an open-minded person? Are you willing to open your mind to new ideas, or to opinions that you don’t agree with? How do you handle others who are different from you? I’ve observed that most people in the natural/alternative health arena are fairly open-minded, and most are willing to work alongside those whom they disagree with. Open-minded […]

Are You Asleep At The Wheel – Wake Up And Shift Gears To Healthier Food And Free Water

A young Caucasian man is asleep at the wheel of a car, with some drool beginning to run out of his mouth.

All of us are feeling the pinch of rising food prices these days, and we can’t seem to successfully stop chemically altered, GMO foods from taking over our food supply. Now, a new concern is rising – the shortage of clean drinking water. It is overwhelming when you think about it, especially if you live in Southern California where city […]

Will 2015 Be The Year Of The Outlaw Who Brings Change?

A silhouette of an outlaw with a cowboy hat and scarf.

It looks like 2015 may be “The Year of the Outlaw.”  We seem to be creating so many laws these days, we’re making criminals out of everyone – even our children. I have cited three very critical issues (and new laws) that are threatening our health freedom today. Will standing up for our freedom of choice […]

“Who Gets Kissed?” is the first in a series of organic sweet corn developed through a new plant breeding program. “’Who Gets Kissed?” is not only bred under organic farming conditions, but organic farmers are equal partners in the breeding effort. This represents a much needed alternative where farmers and agricultural scientists collaborate with one another on […]
