Maintaining During Uncertain Times

Just wanted to share what Iโ€™ve been doing during the Covid19 Pandemic. Itโ€™s been hard for ย us all. Continuously sending Lightโ˜€๏ธ and Love๐Ÿ’• to everyone during these uncertain times. So a few things that Iโ€™ve been doing are:ย  Boosting my Immuneย System. Iโ€™ve been taking several vitamins, drinking herbal teas as well as juicing. As for Vitamins, daily iโ€™m taking an Active Immunity vitamin that has elderberry, echinacea, zinc and vitamin C. Iโ€™m also taking Vitamin D, Folic Acid and Turmeric. Here and there, I ingest a few drops of Oil of Oregano, add a little Wheatgrass Powder in my drinks,...

Some experts recommend elderberry to help prevent and ease cold and flu symptoms.โ€ Of course after hearing all of the benefits, I was sold! Iโ€™m currently taking immunity vitamins that have elderberry as an ingredient, but of course I wanted to find out what else was out there. My gosh, there...

Why Self-care is Important to Me...

Why is self-care so important to me? In all honesty, itโ€™s important to me because I know the benefits of it.

I Made My Own Turmeric Tea

Okay, so Iโ€™ve been really into natural products lately, whether itโ€™s bath & body products, natural remedies instead of medication and even the things that I am putting into my body. Lately, iโ€™ve had a sore throat and have been reseraching natural anti-inflammatory products to help with this. Of course in my search, I came across turmeric and it's benefits. Turmeric, alsoย ย known as the โ€œGolden Spiceโ€ has many benefits.ย Aย blog byย Meghan Telpner listsย the following benefits such as: โ€œAntioxidant: Curcumin has the ability to quench free radicalsย that can cause mutation in our DNA. Cancer Preventative: The cancer-causing effects of cigarette smoke, barbequing,...
