Enjoy the health benefits of hot peppers with homemade hot sauce

Uncategorized Jul 17, 2017
 

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...

Here's what you need to know about EMFs

We're all in love with technology, from the addictive scrolling through Facebook on our mobile devices to our children's obsession with video games. This digital world that we live in is growing at such a fast pace and is now part of our everyday lives. While this digital fun might not seem like a problem for most, there's a growing concern that our exposure to EMFs, created from these very devices, can have negative effects on our health and...

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...

by the editorial team and Sophia Ruan Gushée

 

As someone who has become sensitive to electromagnetic fields (EMFs), I have often wondered about the safety of microwave ovens. Are they safe: not only in terms of the radiation they emit, but also in terms of what they may do to the food that they cook?

What is microwave radiation?

Microwave radiation is a class of radio waves that have frequencies ranging from 3000 waves per second (3 kHz) to 300 billion waves per second (300...

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.

Halotherapy is reported to improve some people's symptoms from inflammation and bacteria, as Doctor Oz...

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...

Sick House Syndrome: 3 Strategies for a home that may be making you sick

 

Angela Cummings, pictured above, contacted me several months ago because my work really resonated with her. Curious as to why, I invited Angela to share her personal story with toxic exposures. Turns out, her home was making her and her son sick. Read her guest post below because most building materials can challenge our health. It's known as 'sick building syndrome,' or, in Angela's case, 'sick house syndrome.'

Can lavendar, basil, and peppermint essential oils repel insects?

insect repellents Jun 20, 2017
 

As a mother of three and a toxic exposures expert, I've been wondering about insect repellents. During our family's spring break vacation, we visited a high-risk area for the Zika virus.

While pregnant women and women of childbearing age are of greatest risk to the Zika virus, Zika can make anyone sick for up to a week with fever, rash, joint pain, red eyes, and other symptoms. The effects of Zika are still being studied so I was also nervous about the unknown, and potential...
