I LOVE when I find a product that is safe to use and really works! In my January newsletter, I shared several articles about the dangers of aluminum and the link between aluminum anti-perspirants and breast cancer. (In case you missed it, I'm including the links at the end of this post.)
I've known for a long time that aluminum in anti-perspirants is a "no-no" for good heath. So I've searched for an effective aluminum-free deodorant for several years, and tried many different brands; but they just weren't very good at controlling odor and/or wetness. Recently, a friend in Las Vegas told me about NATIVE Deodorant. I figured if a natural deodorant was effective in the Las Vegas heat, it must be good!

I've long been concerned about the potential health risks of wireless phones and other devices. We all need to be aware of the possible dangers and take precautions to protect ourselves as much as possible. Perhaps one day we will find out that there is no danger -- I hope so; but until then, please use caution with wireless devices, especially around children -- born and unborn. Keep reading to learn about "The Baby Safe Project" and watch two brief videos: "Protect Your Pregnancy From Wireless Radiation" and "The Science of Exposure - Wireless Radiation." Please share with expectant couples and those who hope to be expecting soon!
Unless you live in a bubble, it's virtually impossible, to protect ourselves and our children from exposure to all the toxic chemicals in our environment; but there are things you can do to reduce exposure in the food you eat, in the household and personal care products you use and more. Below is a video that I recently discovered on this subject, appropriately entitled "Unacceptable Levels" along with two more brief videos about toxins in our environment and a "Simple Solution" I've been using for almost 25 years to help reduce chemicals and create a healthy home.

If you are taking statin drugs to lower cholesterol, hopefully you have been told to take Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) to offset a serious side effect of statins which is the lowering and even depletion of your body's CoQ10. CoQ10 is vital for producing energy in the cells and the heart requires the most energy and CoQ10 of all to function properly. So although statin drugs are prescribed to prevent heart disease, by lowering CoQ10, they are depleting a vital nutrient that supports heart health! (Another confirmation of my mother's wise words, "When you take medicine for one thing it causes something else!")
Below is a link to a terrific discussion with Moms -- who speak from personal experience -- about factors that affect fertility and a healthy pregnancy; including diet, nutritional supplements and factors that reduce risks in pregnancy, gestational diabetes, C-sections, pre-eclampsia, low birth weight, premature births and more. This is valuable information for expectant moms and dads and those who hope to be one day. Please listen in and share.
"Vitamins deliver healthier babies. The first few weeks of pregnancy are especially crucial to the developing embryo. Yet many women only begin to eat right and take necessary vitamin supplements once they know they are pregnant. This is weeks or even months too late. Nutrition needs rise during pregnancy. Even the RDA's are higher. This may be obvious to you, but many women eat really poor diets in general. Then, in a vain attempt to "get all the nutrition they need from a balanced diet" while "eating for two," they tend to eat more of that same poor diet."
This week's wellness webinar, "Menopause Without Medicine" with Dr. and Mrs. Steve Chaney offers effective solutions for women transitioning through menopause.
