Beautiful Photos of Mammals Safely “Co-Sleeping” with Their Babies, As They’ve Done for Millions of Years

May 13, 2016 at 8:11 pm

The term “co-sleeping” has always seemed strange to me. It implies parents are doing something special or out-of-the-ordinary by doing what mammals have always done for millions of years – sleep with their babies.

“Are you going to co-sleep?” people asked when I was pregnant. “What kind of co-sleeper are you going to buy?”

At first, I had no idea what they were talking about. Then I became aware of the vast market of overpriced baskets parents could buy to ensure they didn’t “roll over and kill their babies:”

Circumcision Is Male Genital Mutilation

May 10, 2016 at 9:03 pm

It’s as bad as female circumcision

Banana Peel Tea Helps with Insomnia

May 5, 2016 at 12:21 am

[wp_ad_camp_1]13169798_10103864651239852_1793777295_oOne in five Americans suffer from sleep disorders or sleep deprivation, and two-thirds get less than the recommended 7 to 9 hours of sleep, according to the CDC. As a result, nearly 9 million Americans were on prescription sleeping pills as of 2013.

With side effects including “dizziness, memory loss, confusion, depression, anxiety, aggressive behavior, hallucinations and thoughts of suicide,” people popping America’s leading sleeping pill – Ambien – might be relieved to know there’s a natural alternative with zero negative side effects… and it costs about 30 cents a pop…

Forget Overpriced Packaged Coconut Water, Drink Straight from the Coconut

It’s cheaper, healthier, more sustainable and easy

11666-National-Blvd-300x225Strolling through the cold beverage section in Whole Foods today, my eyes landed on the coconut water. Loaded with potassium, magnesium, calcium and other minerals most Americans are lacking, it’s more hydrating and balancing than plain water and has become a new favorite of mine.

I couldn’t decide between the large 365 brand bottle for $3, or the much smaller Harmless Harvest brand bottle for $5. Harmless Harvest obviously was the higher quality product, as it is “raw” (never heated) and organic. Whole Foods 365 brand, along with the rest are flash pasteurized which kills the enzymes and destroys some of the nutrients. But I wasn’t sure if I wanted to spend $4 on a tiny plastic bottle of electrolyte water.

Is GMO Corn Causing the “Leaky Gut” Epidemic?

March 10, 2016 at 1:08 am

Leaky-Gut-Symptoms-and-EffectsIt has been estimated that nearly 80 percent of the U.S. population has some degree of leaky gut syndrome – a condition where holes in our intestines let food particles and toxins into our blood stream. The medical-industrial complex does not recognize it as a legitimate condition, but alternative healthcare practitioners claim “leaky gut” is the main culprit behind food allergies, auto-immune disorders (like lupus), eczema, multiple sclerosis, and even diabetes and cancer.

Author of Seeds of Deception Jeffrey Smith explains how Monsanto’s Bt corn – which is in the vast majority of processed foods and animal products in America – is literally ripping our guts apart:

Bees Love Cannabis, Not GMO Corn

March 6, 2016 at 5:56 am

While 37 million bees dropped dead in Canada last week, near a freshly planted field of GMO corn, about a million lucky bees in France are alive and well, taste testing several varieties of cannabis.

The unlucky bees were victims of a deadly, but legal, neonicotinoid insecticide manufactured by Bayer CropScience – yes that’s the same company that makes your headache medicine. (Isn’t it convenient that nutrient-devoid food leaves us in need of an Aspirin?)

Depression is a global epidemic. It is the main driver behind suicide, which now claims more than a million lives per year worldwide. One in four Americans will suffer from clinical depression within their lifetimes, and the rate is increasing with every generation.

It robs people of sleep, energy, focus, memory, sex drive and their basic ability to experience the pleasures of life, says author of The Depression Cure Stephen Ildari. It can destroy people’s desire to love, work, play and even their will to live. If left unchecked it can cause permanent brain damage.

Why I Still Breastfeed My 5-Year-Old

February 19, 2016 at 5:50 pm

A couple of years ago, I came across a story about a mother who still breastfeeds her 5-year-old daughter. I’m not really sure why it was newsworthy, but people were shocked to discover a woman feeding her small child the same way all mammals have fed their offspring for eons.




All kinds of bloggers picked up the story, and busybodies jumped in on the comments sections calling the dedicated mother of four every name in the book — “gross” … “disgusting” … “indecent” … “unnatural” … “sinister” … “perverse” … “what’s wrong with the world.”

The most disturbing accusations hurled at this woman were those of “pedophilia” and “child abuse.”
