9 Interesting Facts About the Digestive System

I think it is safe to say we are all aware of having a digestive system, and that this system serves to break down food and assimilate nutrients to keep us going. Let’s take a closer look at some of the more interesting ways the digestive system gets it’s job done to keep us alive and nourished.   1. Random facts about the mouth: Without saliva, we would not be able to taste anything (yes, taste buds are responsible for your sense of taste, but without food being dissolved in saliva, the receptors on your tongue can’t detect food...

Good Will and Gratitude

I have been reflecting on Gratitude. My husband Paul has taught me to enjoy exploring where words have come from, their etymology. Gratitude: “before 1447 meant good will; later on it came to mean grace or favor.” It derives from the Latin Thankfulness: “The meaning of Thankfulness is first recorded in English in 1565.” Isn’t it odd that we have put a beginning date on knowing gratitude? I’d like to think this attitude has been with us for eons. Just look at the spectacular uniqueness of this phenomenal planet we call Home, Earth! Can you believe that we have...

What is life asking of YOU?

Just before intending to send you the following blog last week, I not only had wrist surgery after a hard fall, but also, our colonic equipment broke! My wrist and device are both requiring a few weeks to repair and upgrade. I’m aiming for October 25, 2018 as our re-opening date. What kind of meaning can I give to these events? Certainly, I am being asked to STOP and surrender, to let go of the control illusion. I guess I’m so stubborn that it took both a physical AND a mechanical break to wake me up! To force a...

An Old Home Remedy: Castor Oil Packs Castor Oil has numerous healing properties. Some of you may remember as a child that your Mom forced it down your throat to relieve constipation.

What You Put in Determines What You Get Out

My husband and I recently moved into a new home in a rural area. Right away I noticed water did not drain properly in the kitchen sink. I bought a bottle of drain cleaner, poured the entire bottle down the drain and let it sit overnight. In the morning I ran the faucet hoping that whatever was clogging the drain had been dislodged. All seemed well at first. However, after several days the problem returned. I immediately understood that a quick fix was not going to be the appropriate course of action. I needed to determine the underlying cause...

“Health Food” Isn’t Always Good for You

Information about food and its nutritional value is not always accurate. Health food fads and trends can burst into popularity without accompanying facts about the pros and cons of eating that food. It’s important that we know the facts, because what’s labeled as a health food by pop culture isn’t always good for us. Developing the habit of reading labels can assist you in making wise food choices. A good example of this is kombucha. This beverage, made by fermenting tea, became a health food fad in Western Culture two decades ago. It is touted as an abundant source...
