Natural Home Remedies for Heartburn, Pain & Pressure in the Chest & Stomach Area

  This topic is very near and dear to my heart. Literally. If you read my About Me page, you can get the whole story. The pain I used to experience for so many years was incredibly debilitating and frustrating, because nothing gave me relief. I almost removed my gall bladder, I had my heart looked at numerous times assuming something was wrong. I tried it all from pain meds, heartburn meds, EVERY natural remedy under the sun, and I spent a lot of money in the process. The first thing to address is that many times the pain and pressure you feel in the center of...

Vegetable Soup Recipe

Vegetable Soup Recipe

Tonight I am making a “Must-go” vegetable soup (recipe). Once in awhile we like to let our pantry and fridge run down to the bare bones just to use stuff up that we normally do not use.

Cooking them in a pot of soup is the way to go.    VEGETABLE SOUP RECIPE (not really a recipe) I always start a soup base of sautéed garlic and onions with coconut oil, or gently sautéed...

How to Get Your Kids To Eat Vegetables

  Are you struggling to get your kids to eat vegetables? Join the club! First off, always encourage healthy food choices in a positive tone, and try to avoid negative comments.

Focus On The Unseen In Your Body – Visualize What Happens Within

Focus On The Unseen In Your Body – Visualize What Happens Within

Most people unknowingly eat processed food containing toxic ingredients with every meal.   Focusing on the unseen within the body once we have eaten a food, causes us to take a step back, to feel and listen to the body’s reaction to that food. I try to have some quiet time each day to pray. Today, as I sat, thought, and tried to “listen,” I thought how hard it is sometimes to focus on the unseen (spiritually), as I believe that the real you and I is spiritual, not physical. It then occurred to me that the “out of sight, out of mind,” saying rings true with...
