Marshmallow Tea — Easy And Effective Digestive Strengthening

IMG_4007 IMG_4016

I have struggled with severe GERD, ulcers, and esophageal scarring most of my life.    Of course the foods I love the most also wreck the most havoc.  Coffee, heavily spiced foods, wine, and my beloved jalapeno peppers leave me struggling through heart burn and worse.  While heart burn is uncomfortable, I am more concerned with the long term damage unchecked GERD creates.  For me, a holistic approach–including herbal strengthening of my digestive system — has resulted in greater freedom, fewer side effects, and a stronger digestive system than experienced before.   Continue reading

IMG_3972

I have a insane ability to imagine every conceivable “wrong” that can occur in my life and my blood pressure responds accordingly.  This natural hard wiring plus the high pressure of “type A” Northern Virginia and raising four teenagers means I had an intimate relationship with anxiety and sleepless nights.  With all the demands that face us, I bet most of you can relate to struggling with stress and trying to calm your mind and relax your body.  I was incredibly grateful to discover a healthy, non addictive, anxiety remedy/sleep aid that is all natural and easy to grow/make.   Continue reading

School starts here on Monday and with it comes cold and flu season.  There are many benefits to having a large family with lots of children running around; but, one of the detriments is they come with lots of viruses/bacteria.  They also have a wicked ability to spread them faster than I can say “Tylenol.”  When cold/flu season hits our home it is a battle to keep these germs from downing each of us one at a time–then repeating.  Have you ever had the experience of weeks on end of someone being sick only to start all over again when the last one “recovers?”  Yuck!  No offense intended to my kids–but as much as I love having them around I was also looking forward to them being back in school. . lol!   I am highly motivated to keep them there!!  I mean–education is a top priority, right? 🙂   I was thrilled to discover the powerhouse of Echinacea tincture.  If used at the very first sniffle, cough, runny nose, or vague feeling of “not feeling quite right” you can often prevent getting sick at all.  It is less effective the more symptoms you have before starting; but, even if you use during full blown illness it can help shorten the time you are sick.

So you may be asking, what the heck is a “tincture” anyway?  Continue reading
