What Is Glyphosate? (and why we should all avoid it!)

September 06, 2016  I don’t understand why so many people think it’s necessary to use chemicals and toxins on our plants – whether crops or weeds. We’re slowly poisoning the Earth and ourselves to death, yet companies that produce these chemicals claim that they are safe, with little or no negative impact on the environment. They only make these claims for one reason, and one reason only. Money. Same goes for tobacco companies, pharmaceutical companies, and the fast-food industry. Money. They sell us lies and present us with fudged studies (funded by their own people), and because people are too busy (or too brain-washed) to believe otherwise, they blindly go with what is presented (via main-stream media, which is all controlled and...

Fast Food Destroys Gut Bacteria.

March 19, 2016 We’ve heard it all before – how most fast food and junk food is bad for you and should be avoided as much as possible. Ask anyone in the Natural Health field and they’ll tell you it’s no surprise that McDonald’s food has always managed to be at the top of the “avoid” list; regardless of their menu changes and promotion of more “healthy” eating. Some research has shown that even McDonald’s salads are a bad idea, with some topping out at over 700 calories! That’s more than a Big Mac! For more info, click here:  CBC News Canada You’ve guessed it — the “fast food” mentioned in the title of this article is specifically about the kind McDonald’s serves up. To...

Some Ice-Cream is NOT Ice-Cream

March 15, 2016 Most people enjoy eating ice-cream, but how often do you take time to consider what it’s in it? It’s often assumed that ice-cream is natural and made with simple, natural ingredients: cream, milk, sugar, vanilla/cocoa. But that no longer seems to be the case, especially with the big brand companies. The ingredient list on many popular brands now reads very differently, and includes items such as “modified milk products” (that’s another blog post for later), sugar AND corn syrup (really bad for everyone!), thickeners (including carrageenan and guar gum), and artificial flavours and colours. Sure, some of these items come from natural sources, but that doesn’t mean those items are good for you. Do further research...

Creative Journaling

I have been traditional (written) journaling for as long as I can remember. It started with a diary when I was in grade school, which later progressed to what I term a “proper” journal and that has continued on/off for the last 30+ years. Recently, though, I discovered a different approach to journaling: Creative (Art) Journaling. And what an experience it’s been so far! It has taken my journaling experience to a whole new level of expression and expansion, plus it’s tapped me into a level of creativity that I didn’t even know existed in me! Some time soon, I will be offering workshops and one-on-one sessions in the “how to’s” of Creative Journaling. For now, I’m sharing some of my experiences (along with some...
