New E-BOOK: FOOD FIX: The Most Powerful Healing Foods and How to Use Them to Overcome Disease

Food Fix: The Most Powerful Healing Foods and How to Use Them to Overcome DiseaseWhenever someone tells me that they looked up their health problem on the internet, I cringe.

10 Health Benefits of Ditching Perfume Now

Perfumes and colognes are packed with toxic, health-harming ingredients.

Before you take a chance on Chanel’s Chance or seek Amazing Grace (the perfume), you might want to rethink your decision to spritz yourself or your clothes. That’s because most perfumes are made from toxic, synthetic ingredients that can destroy your health. While humans have worn natural essential oils of herbs, flowers, and other natural substances for thousands of years, in recent decades, manufacturers of perfumes have switched to cheaper and increasingly toxic ingredients that have a whole host of health problems linked to them.

So, in addition to cutting out cigarettes, reducing your sugar intake, and eating healthier, there’s another resolution you should make that will lik…
