Adaptogens

Adaptogens may be useful for people with stress and who doesn’t have stress these days. Adaptogens are known to have an effect on the HPA axis (hypothalamus, pituitary and adrenal glands) to balance out hormonal fluctuations such as cortisol and adrenaline, estrogen and progesterone, and a myriad of other hormones and their precursors. Due to this affect, adaptogens have been used for conditions such as Syndrom X, a metabolic disorder affecting millions of Americans. This disorder puts people in some-what of a pre-diabetic state, that isn’t considered Type I or Type II or even pre-diabetes really, but can lead to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, insomnia, thyroid conditions most oft

So You're thinking about taking herbs, eh?

So you have had this condition or dis-ease or annoyance or whatever you want to call it and you have heard about herbs from this person then that person and now you are interested. You may have researched your “condition” online or in the library and think you have wrapped your head around it and now have decided to try the natural route. Or maybe you haven’t a clue as to why your feel the way you do, but are disappointed by your doctors and the pills and the poking. OR maybe you just want to try herbs just for the heck of it.

Spring Cleaning

After the long, cold, stagnant winter of hibernation the Spring is the perfect time to clean out the pipes! Being cooped up inside for months, the body is inundated with bacteria and viruses during the Winter season.

Some may choose to do a serious cleanse by fasting for two weeks only to drink water, lemon juice with a pinch of cayenne pepper for breakfast and lunch and a simple clean meal for dinner.

For 2 years I have been on the precipice, ready to plunge and I finally feel movement. The world of herbalism came so suddenly into my life, I have felt it swept me so fast, I wasn’t sure where I was going to land.

Wendy Snow Fogg is a mentor and a friend and instrumental in my endeavor....in an act of divine intervention, crazy, and karmic......and so it began. Much needs to be sa

Things I know to be true......

Work hard, do good in school, get good grades, go to college, get good grades, work hard.....you know the drill. We heard it a million times growing up, and we still hear it. Get a job, work hard and you’ll have a happy life. When we finally grow up, and get that job, then what? Retire and move to Florida?

I want them to have ALL the opportunities they deserve.....all those opportunities that I didn’t even exist to me. I am a homeschooling mom with two daughters, 12 and 9. We are unconventional.
