Top 5 Pediatrician-Approved Natural Remedies for Your Child’s Headache
If you’ve ever suffered from headaches, you know how awful they can be.

And of course, when your child has a headache, the first concern that might pop into some of your heads is that something could be wrong – really, really wrong.
Another Way to Evaluate Your Health
It’s hard not to live and die(t) by the scale. As a professional, I know better, but will admit to falling into the trap of living by the numbers on the scale. However, I’ve learned just how defeating those numbers can be when used as the sole basis for my state of health.
Questions to Ask your new Dentist
Life is a process of relationship. There is no life without relationship. So relationship is the basis of human existence. Relationship is the most important thing in life. Do you see the truth of that, not verbally, not intellectually, but actually with your heart and mind?

Glycogen and You
Most people want more energy. Increased energy means better performance, longer endurance, greater reach of skill, more prolonged learning potential, and the stamina for profound depths of social interaction.

How to set you Goals to Get and Stay Fit Once and For All!
Have you ever wondered how you can actually have long-term success at changing your diet and fitness routine? The answer is: Make it a way of life, not just a diet or quick fix to solve a problem.

I must admit, I have done my fair share of running after the latest and greatest product that promised to give me the skin that I desperately wanted!

3 Steps to Creating Your Perfect Body Inside and Out
If you are eating a diet high in raw plant foods and are suddenly (or still) experiencing an expanding waist line, I may have a couple answers for you. I have been exploring and playing in the raw, vegan realm over the past 16 years (since 1997), and after reaching 40 I couldn’t just eat whatever I wanted anymore and stay slim, even if it was raw. Since beginning a super high raw food diet (80-100% depending on the time of year), I have had multiple experienced with weight gain and loss over the years. When I was eating all or mostly raw plant foods which included raw desserts laden with fat, nuts, cacao and sweets such as honey, dates, agave and other dried, high glycemic fruits, I would get what I call “nut gut” and look and feel extremely bloated (to the point of looking and being asked if I was pregnant!).
