Post image for Using Pure Water To Detox Heavy Metals

I always kind of just assumed that clean water was clean water.Read More

I installed a under sink water filter over a week ago. I stalled for so long b/c I didn't want to spend the money. However, I'm glad I did. I did lots of research and decided on this company. Filters everything including fluoride, heavy metals, medications. I have hypothyroidism so that is important. Even my dogs love it, I have to fill the water bowl twice a day now. http://www.pureeffectfilters.com/#a_aid=Dawsonhealth

I use a ro filter to purify water. Such a ro system can effectively remove heavy metals. http://wisemommy.net/best-reverse-osmosis-system-reviews/

Post image for Keep Close to Nature’s Heart…The Benefits of Hiking

“Keep close to nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain, or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” — John MuirRead More

Favorite pastimes: hiking and daydreaming about hiking! Definitely feel lucky to live in gorgeous Washington state where the mountain and seaside hikes are plentiful. ---Thank you for the beautiful photos from the trail!

hiking brings me so much closer to myself and to nature…it definitely makes me feel amazing. I'm always on the treadmill and i get sick of it sometimes, so when i rediscover the beauty of being outside it makes me feel so energized and alive!! lovemadisonbailee.blogspot.com

I can't be on the road without bringing my favorite pillow from home to keep myself comfortable.However, I do need to eat better while on the road.

This is an awesome find. I have a three-day moving trip coming up this summer to plan. What foods to bring, if we are driving a U-Haul and a car or just a U-Haul, what roads we will take, etc. When I travel, I am normally in the passenger's seat. The first several hours I have to sleep or I get car sick. Otherwise, my husband and I love to sing songs together. We practice harmonies, creating our own songs, or putting new lyrics to a favorite melody. One time we got 127 ants that go marching... that was a fun drive. I tend to avoid electronics on a drive unless. It's a radio. Even then, it's often nicer to have the radio off than on.

I have been eating raw for 6 months now. For me some of the bloating seemed to be an initial reaction that occurred due to the change and my body cleansing a bit. The only time I feel bloated on the diet now is if I overdo it with cruciferous vegetables (cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, etc.). This is where fruit helps out. Just a tip from my experience. If you are looking for more raw recipes check out my blog! www.radiatetheday.blogspot.com
fp joanna -Jan 24, 2015, 8:42PM
Hi Maddie! Why yes, yes I did. I added overnight oats to my daily diet and that seemed to help a little. However, after the two weeks of raw food, I added quinoa and black beans. I also started steaming my spinach and kale which made it easier to digest, for me. Everyone reacts differently -- I'm so happy that you found a plan that works for you and that you are feeling great! xx

Bri -Jan 15, 2015, 1:41PM
My eyebrows suck, and not in an unruly but cool/natural way; the so thin you can barely notice them way, but using the powder to fill them will help I think. Request** Can you write about your new pup!? I have the same breed and they are just perfect! Hopefully soon (:
Ayu -Jan 14, 2015, 10:47AM
Natural beauty. My brows are on the thicker side as well and I love embracing them!

Deirdre Curry -Apr 05, 2015, 7:57PM
I normally don't share when it comes to posts, but this one hit me hard and I couldn't pass up commenting. I am a sophomore in College and freshman year I was diagnosed with mono.. horrible ik, but just wait.. this caused to me to have an upset stomach constantly, making me sick almost every day. A whole year later I found out I had ulcers. During this time I had cut out dairy from my diet, as it seemed to only make me feel worse. I then proceeded to become a vegan, after reading about how good it was for the body. I thought if anything could make me better I would try it. I have now been taking medication for months now and seem to be getting better, I still cannot have acidic things, such as coffee and alcohol as you have mentioned. Giving up caffeine and alcohol while away at college has been super tough for me, but it just goes to show what our bodies can and cannot take. I will continue to be vegan, eating raw, whole foods and exercising and practicing yoga. We should be as kind to our bodies as they are to us.
