(article by Frances Murchison, HHC, AADP – Rodale News)

Foods for your liver are essential to keeping your body’s powerhouse—your liver—functioning optimally. A healthy liver plays a key role in relieving digestive issues, such as a sluggish metabolism, gas, bloating, and constipation. It regulates blood sugar levels, which—when out of balance—can cause sugar cravings, fatigue, and fuzzy thinking.

A toxic liver can lead to inflammatory diseases, such as diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and autoimmune diseases. Without a healthy liver, you may suffer from hormonal imbalances that can cause headaches, mood swings, and depression. It’s time to nurture this amazing organ!

6 Kitchen Remedies for Natural Sunburn Relief

Natural Sunburn Remedies

Summer is here, and with the warm weather and fresh air comes lots of extra sun exposure. Outdoors activities such as swimming, hiking, canoeing, picnics and just laying on the beach means extra sun exposure time for skin that is normally covered most of the year, for most people. I’m personally a big advocate of natural sunscreen options, not chemical-carcinogenic lotions and potions, and believe it is essential to our health and wellbeing to get regular sun exposure during non-peak hours of the day. Our bodies naturally produce Vitamin D, and mood boosting hormones via natural sun exposure, and far too many people are deficit in both. Slathering our bodies with chemically laced products has consequences that I won’t get into here, but I urge you to do some serious research into the subject matter, and choose a natural skin protection option best suited for you.
