Almost all shampoos strip the natural oils from your hair, which keep it stronger, shinier and healthier than the most expensive conditioners on the market, for free.

It’s almost impossible to find shampoo and conditioner without a long list of synthetic chemical ingredients. Even the most natural brands have replaced cancer-causing preservatives like parabens with phenoxyethanol, which isn’t much better.

But one of the worst ingredients, found in even the most “organic” brands, is alcohol, which totally strips the protective natural oils from your hair, causing your scalp to go into overdrive producing more oil to heal it.

July 3, 2016 at 11:48 pm




Whole Foods, Organic Valley and Stoneyfield have teamed up with Monsanto and Dupont to nullify Vermont’s new GMO labeling law that now requires companies to disclose the genetically engineered ingredients hiding in nearly 75 percent of processed foods in this country.

Food Democracy Now reported last week that the self-described “organic companies” have brokered a last-minute backroom deal with the “devil” food giants that guts a national GMO labeling bill and overturns Vermont’s new state law.

Thanks to Vermont’s historic legislation, which went into effect July 1, many major food companies like Campbell’s, General Mills, Pepsi, Nestle and Smucker’s have already started labeling their products as “partially produced with genetic engineering.”

This ancient Chinese elixir is loaded with probiotics, enzymes, vitamins and minerals and tastes like a gift from the gods.

IMG_1884-768x1028One taste of this sparkling, fruity, probiotic, super elixir and I was hooked. It was fizzy and refreshing like champagne, but loaded with good bacteria, enzymes, vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin B 12, which my then vegan body was starving for. It gave me a burst of energy (not the jittery caffeine kind) and mental clarity, and helped me digest my food and cleanse my body.

Beautiful Photos of Mammals Safely “Co-Sleeping” with Their Babies, As We’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:”
