Beware of Microwave Popcorn

diet Mar 21, 2017

Throughout all the books and online articles that I had reviewed about health and non-toxic products, I had never read anything about the hazards in microwave popcorn. Recently, however, I was reading an article in The New York Times Magazine and the author casually mentioned that she and her family avoid microwave popcorn because of the lining.  So I immediately went online to research this and wish I knew more about this earlier, especially when I was pregnant.  Oh well, better...

Autism: A Quality Discussion

Uncategorized Mar 21, 2017

I was thrilled to discover that Dr. Oz had led a discussion on autism -- its possible causes and solutions. Several physicians on the show agreed that the quality of food that we feed our children (and ourselves!) is influential in many cases. Other topics covered are the role of vaccines, environment, and mother's age.

One in every 110 children born in the US will be diagnosed with autism. Please click on the image below to view the discussion among Dr. Oz, a panel of experts and...

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...

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

parents sleep yoga Jan 11, 2017

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...

baby Dec 31, 2016

  • 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...
