Homemade Remineralizing Tooth Powder

I don’t use toothpaste.

No, it’s not my latest attempt to keep people socially distant. I actually haven’t used toothpaste for a few years.

Yes, I still have friends. Yes, I’m cavity-free. And yes, my mouth is actually cleaner, mintier, and fresher than it’s ever been!

As you do your best to reduce toxins, chemicals, and additives that you put in your body, it's just as important to avoid those hormone-disrupting ingredients that are in products you put on your body.

Toothpaste fits in both of these categories. You put it on your teeth...

cleaning homemade non-toxic Jul 26, 2020

A good all-purpose cleaner is probably one of the most used cleaning items in your cabinet. From cleaning your kitchen to washing your car, they really live up to their all-purpose title.

I usually stick to single-ingredient cleaners like vinegar, alcohol, or hydrogen peroxide. They’re simple and effective without any of the toxins that come with their chemical counterparts. Sometimes, though, I need a cleaner with a little more power behind it.

It doesn’t take harsh, chemical cleaners to get the job done. Along with causing major skin irritations, those cleaners can cause...

Homemade All-Natural Face Powder

Your skin is the largest organ in, I mean ON, your body.

So, what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN your body.

Personal care & skin products, even “natural” ones, are made with thousands of chemical ingredients. These fragrances, stabilizers, and harmful additives are:
Known and suspected carcinogens.
Toxic to your reproductive system.
Known to disrupt your endocrine system—your thyroid gland, adrenal glands, HPA axis, and more.

We use at least 9-15 topical products a day—shampoo, conditioner, soap, face wash, toothpaste, lotion, shaving...

How to Choose the Best Prenatal Vitamin

Choosing a prenatal vitamin is confusing! So many milligrams, micrograms & ingredients to pronounce!

Confusing or not, you need to take a prenatal vitamin to best support your health and the health of your baby-to-be before, during, and after pregnancy.

hypothyroid thyroid Jul 12, 2020

When it comes to optimal thyroid health, it takes a village!

This master gland of yours is powerful by itself, but your thyroid needs support from your whole body to work like it needs to. If your other hormones and body systems aren’t working well, they’ll make your thyroid look bad. And guess who gets the blame?

Yep, your thyroid! Poor guy!

If you’re on a medication to support your thyroid, or think you need one, there isn’t a dose high enough that will help you if you don’t find the root cause…or causes…to what’s actually causing your...

I'm just not ready for this!

Have you ever said that?

Maybe your friend asked you to lace up for a 10K, but you’re barely able to get in your daily neighborhood walk.

While you’d love a four-legged “best friend”, perhaps your living space or work schedule isn’t the best for welcoming a furry friend right now.

Perhaps you found a recipe for a decadent 27-ingredient French dessert, but your weeknight meals are all you can manage…and that’s on a good day!

Sometimes you’re just not ready for things that life has to offer.
