  • Steve, yes, antibacterial soaps are certainly not a good way to wash hands. Pine oil is a great all purpose cleaner. Thanks for the input.

  • The combination of echinacea/goldenseal and bee pollen with propolis are excellent. I wish there was money in studies done on other forms of antivirals but since there is no financial motivation we can only rely on ancedotal testimonies for therapies that truly do work. I believe a detox plan should only be carried out for a short time with…[Read more]

  • Nate,
    My husband works in a clinic and refused the flu shot. He has to wear a mask. For him it is a badge of honor that he is exercising his FREEDOM in our country to be able to decline the shot. If people are educated about the shot, it is their right to take it. I abhor the pressure you were put under in nursing school to take the shot. Being a…[Read more]

  • I have been doing resistance training the past month and really notice a difference in my strength. Good article!

  • Paleo and gluten free? I am going to try making it very soon! Great article!

  • I found a quote that I absolutely love “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be”.
    Taking that first step in letting go is a step towards freedom. Letting go of consumerism frees us to not seek money. Our lives are spent seeking what is truly important- each other and the time we spend with those we love. Thank you for this article

  • So important to remember that one plan does not work for everyone. Thank you for reminding us of that!

  • Great start to a series! I am looking forward to more!

  • You have brought up a very important point about planning. I have seen many people start to put their plants in without any planning. I like that you have given information and incorporated different forms of watering for different situations

  • I have read sugar is more addicting than cocaine. I dont know if that is true, but I do know it is highly addictive. Thanks for the input

  • Thanks, Steve.
    I am looking forward to reading your article

  • When TEOTWAWKI (or SHTF or “grid down”- whatever your flavor of alphabet terms)  you will be glad you took a preventative, proactive stance by taking charge of your health.

    In part 1 of this series I will be […]

    • Thanks, Steve.
      I am looking forward to reading your article

    • Lots of excellent info and down to earth ideas on detox. The weekly juice thingy is very good and likely should be a regular part of ones health regimen and diet. The liver may be the single most important organ considering it is a main filter? But A balanced endocrine system is also part of the equation and not at all difficult to accomplish. I will be writing something that enhances the gardening part shortly and a fitness update that is easy to accomplish. Dandelion root , chard, cabbage, arugula and beets all in the ground and doing well since weather changed recently. Good on Ya, and thanx for all your info.

  • As a holistic nurse, my practice and philosophy are focused on prevention. So, when I started thinking about a topic that can really affect and enhance and ultimately help to prolong a person’s life, I had to get […]

    • Excellent information. The correlation between the gut and our immune system and endocrine system is very important and synergistic. It is all about balance, Hey ? I will be trying some of the recipes and methods !

      And one dose of antibiotics ? No wonder our society is mostly sick, weak and unhealthy people. Combine that with overweight and excess body fat and you have a society that looks like ours? Interesting how people in other cultures with far less so-called technology and medical care are very lean with almost zero heart and immune disorders ? Must be a reason.

  • A look at the following two definitions:

    Holistic Health:According to the AHHA (American Holistic Health Association): With Holistic Health, people accept responsibility for their own level of well-being, and […]

    • All excellent points Brooke. Taking action is a biggy, hey . Being healthy really is all in our head. Simple as how we think about our life and all life. Once a person has their head wrapped around these basic concepts it is not work or effort , it is just the joy of health. We do live in many illusions to be sure.

  • Last week I covered what the influenza vaccination is, the ingredients in it and how the serum is made by predicting the type of flu strain for the upcoming year. I am now going to write about how the CDC uses […]

    • Good information. Most do not realize that the majority of what we are told regarding our health and certainly vaccinations is considerably bogus for many reasons. You touched on all of them. But there is a grander point. We do live in many illusions and health care is just one of them. Our food and water agencies also put out all manner of nonsense that is not at all correct, accurate or good for you to consume? Chlorine and the many chemicals in our food supply are just a few examples of many. So it is very important to understand the many illusions not only for ones actual health , but wellbeing. Just as all politics and economics are control mechanisms , so is the supposed health care information. It is all interconnected disinformation from supposed “professionals”. So if you take all the info you have provided can anybody actually say the establishment healthcare system is at all about your actual health or is it about money and control? Pretty obvious what is real IMO. Good reasons to take care of yourself on your own terms and powers. We live in massive illusions and you have pointed out some important ones. Good on Ya !

  •  I do not take the flu shot.  Period. For me , there are too many unknowns and ingredients I really do not want in my body. I will, however, try to present information from the CDC’s own website, W […]

    • I just wanted to give a little incite to the 60% effective number the CDC uses for the flu vaccine. If you take 100 people, none of whom get the vaccine, then you can expect 2.6 people to get the flu. If all 100 people take the vaccine then you can expect 1.5 people to get the flu. That is how they calculate 60% effective.

      But, if you were to look at the total population sample only 1% less get the flu with the vaccine. But, how many of those 100 people will have side effects from the vaccine? CDC says 1 out of one million will have a major side effect.

    • Good on your husband Brooke. We do live in many illusions and everything to do with our health is just one of many. Keep up the good works of informing folks, so they can make good choices by having more information. Not just being force fed dogma. Lots of relavent and good info.

    • Nate,
      My husband works in a clinic and refused the flu shot. He has to wear a mask. For him it is a badge of honor that he is exercising his FREEDOM in our country to be able to decline the shot. If people are educated about the shot, it is their right to take it. I abhor the pressure you were put under in nursing school to take the shot. Being a nursing student many years ago, I remember the intense pressure placed on students to “conform”. Hold your head up high and realize each time we are coerced into “giving in” to this pressure from society without being able to make an intelligent INFORMED position we are giving up our rights to function in a free society. Remember, there are a shortage of healthcare workers. You do hold a lot of power you do not realize you have. You are in the trenches advocating for the public you will soon be taking care of. My article is backed up with the CDC’s own information and cited with the flu vaccine makers inserts. Please feel free to email me if you would like to speak on this matter further. My email is healthbeginsathome@gmail.com

  • I was going to cover the influenza vaccination but after further consideration, I feel that subject deserves its own post. I will be writing on the influenza vaccination next week.

    Today I will be covering two […]

    • Anectdotal therapies that work are the best that can be attained? Simply because they did work? How simple , hey. But we are bombarded with all manner of nonsense about how e must listen to the professionals and they know best ? Ha HA Ha there is still no replacement for ones common sense and what actually works as opposed to establishment dogma that kills or harms people for a profit motive? We can all make the decision to use our own powers of health and wellbeing. Just takes a little effort and thought not what we are spoon fed or force fed.

    • The combination of echinacea/goldenseal and bee pollen with propolis are excellent. I wish there was money in studies done on other forms of antivirals but since there is no financial motivation we can only rely on ancedotal testimonies for therapies that truly do work. I believe a detox plan should only be carried out for a short time with specific goals to reach. I do not like detoxification that leaches minerals and electrolytes unless it is a life or death situation. And concerning EDTA, there are other products that work just as well. Depends what you are trying to achieve as far as detox is concerned. I can attempt to answer that in an article in the near future.

  • According to the CDC 40 states are reporting widespread influenza outbreaks:
