baby brain emf Jul 20, 2017
 

Parents who use baby monitors are among the most well-intentioned: They use baby monitors as a way to keep their children safe.

Since giving birth to three children, my body has had an insatiable appetite for spice, especially from habanero peppers. In fact, habanero peppers are the only peppers now that taste spicy to me. 

Recently, as I was chatting with a farmer who was concerned about my purchases of chocolate haberno peppers, I assured him, "Don't worry: I've never tasted anything that's been too spicy for me!"

Curious about my body's strong craving for intense heat and spice, I did some...

This digital world that we live in is growing at such a fast pace and is now part of our everyday lives.

9 Tips to Protect From Electromagnetic Radiation

 

I have been encountering the topic of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) much more frequently. At first, I started learning about how our consumer products (including appliances and cell phones) can contribute to our surrounding EMFs. As I read more about the potential health effects, I was reminded that our bodies are electrical beings.

Recently, the lovely Christina Lonsdale, an artist/photographer who founded Radiant Human, explained that her roving aura photography...

Halotherapy: Six ways to incorporate salt therapy into your self care routine

 

From as early as the 1800s, halotherapy, or salt therapy, has been associated with soothing and boosting some people's respiratory systems. While science is just beginning to understand how halotherapy may affect our biology, this ancient practice is becoming more popular in spas and for those seeking relief when conventional medicine hasn't helped.

EHS Symptoms from EMF Exposure

 

 

While researching the biological effects from our modern exposures to chemicals, heavy metals, and electromagnetic fields (EMFs) for my book A to Z of D-Toxing, I was able to start associating certain symptoms with certain environments. For example, in a new home office of mine, the longer I stayed in my office, the stronger became my feelings of nausea, pressure in my chest, and tingling in my finger tips and teeth.

Eventually, I hired an EMF expert to measure my home to...

Last summer, in August 2016, I attended my first Kundalini yoga class.

While the introduction to Kundalini yoga was fascinating, my primary goal was to experience WHERE the yoga class was: It was in a salt cave! The Montauk Salt Cave, in the most eastern end of Long Island.

Afterwards, I chatted with the founder of the Montauk Salt Cave, Shannon Coppola, about what motivated her to create a salt cave that's now expanding to a third location, which will be in Manhattan. If you, or...
