10 Health Benefits of Ditching Perfume

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. And, don’t forget the perfumes that are added to laundry detergent, fabric softeners, room “deodorizers,” and scented candles as they contain many of the same n…

My Discovery of a Lost Victorian-Era Orchard

Imagine buying a densely-forested acreage, beginning to remove invasive brush and trees to create walking trails, only to discover a lost orchard of massive, Victorian-era, heritage apple trees hidden among the forest...that's the beginning of this fairy-tale-like adventure that I am thrilled to share with you.

After many months of renovations, restorations, installations, and what felt like endless amounts of cleaning of my newly-purchased 130-year-old Victorian farmhouse, I finally lifted my head from what had begun to feel like never-ending drudgery and took to the land to clear the dust from my mind. After a frustrating day of work, I decided that I wanted a trail system through t…

Pain Erasers: The Complete Natural Medicine Guide to Safe Drug-Free Relief

It’s My Life

It’s fascinating how music can transform us to a different place or another time. Just hearing the intense music and the haunting lyrics of a song today transported me into the darkness of another time—nighttime, sitting and sobbing in my car, contemplating the ongoing fear and trauma I had suffered.

I rationalized that he had only raped me that one time and had only punched me twice and how it had been a few years since then and he hadn’t hit me since. Suddenly, the lyrics, “it’s my life” pierced the airwaves, cutting through my thoughts just as I came to the realization that I had told myself I loved him so many times that I actually believed it. I didn’t love him; I simply didn’t l…

Pain Relief at the Speed of Light

Photizo Pain Relief uses light therapy to provide pain relief.

Have you ever sat in the sunlight while suffering from some aches and pains only to notice soon afterward that your pain had diminished or subsided? That’s the power of phototherapy (light therapy) at work. Having studied phototherapy, I was familiar with its healing powers so I fully expected the Photizo Pain Relief device that incorporates both red and infrared light to be helpful, but didn’t expect it to work so quickly and effectively. In only several minutes and a few short 41 second treatments, I experienced a significant reduction in pain, inflammation, swelling, and had improved circulation and mobility in my hands.

Having written twenty-four books and over two thousand artic…

The Embrace--A Lifeline Between Worlds

The Embrace Apple Tree in the Lost Orchard

Walking through the Lost Orchard, I can’t help but stop to admire the apple tree known as The Embrace. When I gaze upon this tree or stand in its space, I feel transported to a different time, to the Victorian-era in which this tree was planted. My mind relaxes, my breath deepens, my heart remembers. Body and soul, I can’t help but feel pulled into its embrace by simply being in its presence. All at once, I am the one who planted the tree and nurtured its growth, and the one admiring its magnificence now. Not just an apple tree, The Embrace is a lifeline between two lives, two times, two worlds.

Top 10 Spring Superfoods

Microgreens are Powerful Healing Superfoods

Spring is finally here and along with it starts the cascade of vibrant superfoods.  Obviously, some take a little longer than others to rear their heads in our gardens or farmer’s markets, but here are my picks for the top 10 spring superfoods:

Artichokes—A medium-sized artichoke is loaded with fiber (about 10 grams) and vitamin C. It also contains plentiful amounts of the heart- and muscle-health minerals magnesium and potassium.  It’s also high on the ORAC list of foods that have high antioxidant values.  High amounts of antioxidants translate into reduced free radicals linked to aging and disease. 

Asparagus—An excellent source of nutrients like vitamin K which is necessary …
