Quick, easy ways to keep your family healthy!

Boosting your family’s immune system during the fall season is a great way to prevent colds and flu, educate your kids about taking care of themselves, and help everyone feel healthy and vital!

Here are a few of my favorite things to have on hand:

Vit C
boosts your white blood cell counts, helping them to fight off any exposure to viruses or bacteria. 
Dosage: 
for adults, start with 1000mg/day, this can be increased over time
for babies, 1000 mg/day taken by mama will transfer into the breastmilk

Integrative and Alternative cancer treatment centers

When a family deals with cancer treatment decisions, it is often a time of high stress, fear, lots of new information to digest in a short period of time, and decisions to be made re: the most appropriate and effective care. Traditional chemotherapy, alternative care, integrative care...  how do you know which is the right course to take?  How do you even begin to find out and evaluate what's best for you?

I have experienced this process both up close and from afar with numerous people.  The resources below have been most highly recommended to me in this process.

2010 Ruling on GMO sugar beets

In order to familiarize you with some current happenings re: GMO crops in the US, here's a link to a ruling by District Court judge Jeffrey White banning the planting and sale of sugar beet seeds in August of this year. 

Interesting that even with his ruling, requiring that the USDA conduct a thorough environmental review before approving the use of these crops, the USDA and Monsanto went ahead with the planting: until a consumer group, Earthjustice brought it to the court's attention.  It's all economics, big agribusiness, and it can seriously effect our health for generations to come.

Jeffrey Smith and Dr Oz talk GMO's

For those of you who didn't have the opportunity to watch Jeffrey Smith on Dr Oz this morning re: the subject of genetically modified foods, it was very interesting and well done segment.  All sides of the issue were presented, as well as a juxtaposition by some pretty passionate experts.  Great points were presented!

The controversy surrounding GMO's is an international one.  There are 30 countries around the world that have banned GMO foods.  European countries are adding to that number as we speak.
