MY REMINDER OF THE FRAGILITY OF HEALTH AND LIFE...

In early March 2009, a "spontaneous" carotid artery dissection occurred in my forty-year old husband.  The interior lining of one of his carotid arteries, which is a major vessel that supplies blood to the brain, tore.  Three pseudo-aneurysms developed and he was in the hospital for about a week, as doctors proactively prevented a stroke.  Needless to say, this was pretty traumatic.

From meeting my husband, you would think...

Sophia's Motivation for Creating A to Z of D-Toxing

overview Mar 21, 2017

4 Valentine's Day Gift Ideas for the Organic Woman

Valentine's Day is almost upon us, and for those who celebrate by buying gifts for the one we love, the options can sometimes seem...uninspired. While it's easy to pop into a drugstore featuring an aisle of chocolate in heart-shaped boxes and colorful perfumes and lotions, so many of these items don't give our bodies any love. In fact, conventional chocolates are so processed and made with sweet and fattening fillers, that most of chocolate's purported health benefits are lost. And the...

Sounds of My Nightly Routine: Chaos, Singing, Humming, and Chanting Om

Chanting om has become an effective way to release stress, center my mind, and soothe my children to sleep.


As a mother of three young kids, I experience the bedtime routine mostly as a battle. Starting at 5pm, the battle begins: I battle with my children to wash their hands before eating dinner, to eat dinner, to not dance on the furniture while eating, to take a bath, to brush their teeth, to get dressed after bath, to pick their bedtime stories, and to keep their heads on their...

  • Begin these habits early.  Even before the teeth have erupted, you can begin to accustom your baby to the brushing routine by massaging her gums with your finger, a wet washcloth, or gauze.  Alternatively, you can use a soft rubber tip that fits on the end of an adult finger.  These can help with the discomfort associated with teething and stimulates blood flow in the gums.  Once teeth have erupted, continue massaging the gums as well as gentle cleaning of the teeth, by...

Bumbo Babysitter

baby Dec 31, 2016

This is great for when the baby's neck can support its own head.  I think I started using it once my daughter was at least 6 months old.  The seat very comfortably enabled my daughter to sit up, when she could not sit up by herself.  We eventually received a tray that snaps onto the seat, which was great during meal time.  The Bumbo Babysitter can be purchased by clicking on the image below, and it can also be found in The Store.  My daughter loved it and I...

Our Alarming Health Trends: Cancer, Autism, Asthma, and More

The health trends among children and adults are alarming. Sophia Ruan Gushee, author of A to Z of D-Toxing, wants more people to consider the role of environmental factors that we can control: toxic exposures from what we buy.

 

I grew up during the 1970s and 1980s in upstate New York—in Binghamton, a city of about 200,000 residents at the time. I attended various schools that were diverse: a Jewish nursery school with approximately 15 to 20 children per class; a public...
