Uncategorized Mar 21, 2017

From one of my mommy email groups:

Real Mothers don't eat quiche; They don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils Are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors, Filthy ovens and happy kids.

Real Mothers know that dried play dough Doesn't come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what The vacuum just sucked up...

Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' And get their answer when a little Voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Home Remedies for Mosquito Bites

self-care Mar 21, 2017

Last Saturday I had a tough night. The trouble started when I couldn't sleep, and no matter what I did to doze off, I stayed wide awake into the early morning hours. Eventually I was successful in falling asleep, but only for a few short hours, because I soon awoke to multiple and particularly enormous mosquito bites all over my feet, legs and face.

With my body burning from the itchiness of the bites, I was frustrated and heart-broken. I had just been...

How toxic is your car?

cars children Mar 21, 2017

Hi everyone!  I'm excited to start blogging again.  During my online silence, I've been hard at work offline on my first book, which is about environmental health at home.  Soon after my first child was born, I stumbled across upsetting information regarding environmental toxins -- endocrine disruptors, neurotoxins, reproductive toxins, and others -- that contribute to developmental and behavioral impairment in children.  What kept me up at night was learning that my...

diet Mar 21, 2017

After reading The China Study by Dr. Colin Campbell, I became panicked about my family diet as it convinced me that consuming animal protein -- including dairy -- is not worthwhile.  But, then, what do I feed my family, especially my 20-month old daughter?!  Traditionally, a child her age consumes a significant amount of dairy, as our beloved pediatrician recommended.

Not being able to discuss my questions with an expert, I again found a great book that addressed many of my...

The Secret to Bill Clinton's Weight Loss

Uncategorized Mar 21, 2017

As I scrambled last year to aggressively study the link between nutrition and disease (soon after my husband was admitted into the hospital), I never understood why I had not heard about many of the scientific findings discussed by The China Study. The answer (mainly a plant-based diet) still remains mysterious. However, I was relieved to learn that former President Bill Clinton has relied on the guidance of the team of doctors -- including the authors of The China Study -- that I identified...

diet Mar 21, 2017

One of my family's many joys of the summer and fall season is shopping at farmers' markets.  For us, going to the market is more than just stocking up on our favorite fruits and veggies, but is a pleasant outing where we feel more connected to nature and the community.  I always felt like there was something special about the produce sold at the farmers' market, which is why I was so excited when I saw the documentary Food Fight (available now on Netflix,) which tells...

Dairy -- Why The HUGE Misunderstanding? Milk Ads

Uncategorized Mar 21, 2017

 

Viewing the comprehensive and impressive milk ads helped me understand why I had grown up thinking that I should drink more milk, why the perception of milk was so disconnected from the scientific studies that I've been reading about lately. See below...

"The dairy industry...is particularly powerful in this country. Founded in 1915, the well-organized, well-funded National Dairy Council has been promoting milk for almost a hundred years. In 1995, two major milk industry groups put a...
