How to Clear out Yellow Pollen!

Posted on April 15 2019

Here in NC, we know it is April by the coating of yellow dust from pine pollen on just about everything. This yellow dust actually has a sappy component which makes it stick to everything:  cars, windows, shoes, and even the dog!   The season of the pods opening and showering this pollen lasts about 2-4 weeks.   This wreaks havoc for anyone with allergies.   For those sensitive to this pesky pollen, they have to find creative ways to deal with it. Here’s what we do:

  • Keep the windows closed
  • Stay on top of dusting surfaces – you will notice the coating of yellow dust (yes even in the house!)
  • Use your air conditioner, even if it is not hot just to filter the air
  • Cover or bring in your patio cushions
  • Stay indoors on dry, windy days — the best time to go outside is after a good rain, which helps clear pollen from the air.
  • Delegate lawn mowing, weed pulling and other gardening chores that stir up allergens.
  • Remove clothes you’ve worn outside; you may also want to shower to rinse pollen from your skin and hair.
  • Don’t hang laundry outside — pollen can stick to sheets and towels.
  • Wear a dust mask if you do outside chores.

Now that the season is coming to a close… there are a few awesome things you can do to clear the air inside and out. I have discovered a really good Air Revitalizer that eliminates odors, reduces airborne allergens (including mold spores), bacteria, and pollutants in poorly ventilated rooms. This safe and affordable solution brings fresh air into children’s rest and play areas, kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms, and living spaces. It’s also a great alternative for anyone with asthma, allergies, or breathing difficulties. way to detoxifying! Click Here to learn more.

Healing with Hemp

Posted on October 26 2018

I believe you should be able to heal your body from many different angles. But what I have noticed is the need for you to know what to put in your body and what NOT to put in your body.

I will focus on how to provide your body with enhancing homeostasis. (balance created within itself)

How?  Incorporating solid nutrition and healing with resources that come from the earth, not from a factory.

With the opioid epidemic raging throughout our country, it is time we engage in using natural plant based molecules to help us feel more relaxed, with less pain and with a more stable mood.

This is a list from Dr Weil on what hemp can help you with:

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Joint pain
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Menstrual cramps
  • Nausea
  • Insomnia
  • Addiction
  • Autism
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Other autoimmune disorders, as well as schizophrenia.
  • anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.

But this is the thing….. I do not feel we need to use anything with THC (the psychoactive ingredient in hemp).

I have a solution for you. If you want less pain, better mood and better sleep, use a hemp product that is 100% THC free.

  • GMO free
  • Organically grown in the US
  • Gluten Free
  • GMP compliant

When it comes to honoring your body,  you may have a myriad of ideas on how you could accomplish it.  You may want to lose weight, exercise more, get more energy, focus on a health issue or just feel better about yourself.

It all begins with how you fuel your body.

Why you Should Drink Organic Coffee

Posted on April 13 2018

I have to admit…. I love my morning coffee.  It’s part of my morning ritual of sitting quietly and beginning a new day. But over the years I realize there is more to coffee that just the taste.

Not only is coffee one of the top two beverages sold,  it is consumed by 83% of US population. It’s important that the coffee you purchase is not only fair trade, but that it’s organic as well. Coffee that is grown organically, which means the soil the beans are grown in is free of chemicals . Research has even shown that organic coffee has several benefits for your health, the environment and for the farmers who grow it.

Organice vs. Conventional

  • Farm chemicals such as pesticides, insecticides, herbicides, and fungicides were determined by various studies to cause cancer and damages to the reproductive and nervous systems. Conventional or traditional plants grown using these methods pass the chemicals in the body and deposits them in body fats.
  • 100% certified organic coffee contains vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants needed by the body for several health benefits such protection from cell damages and boosting the immune system. Pure organic caffeine in strong coffee acts as an energy booster and enhances proper functioning of the brain.

 Environmental Benefits

Unlike conventional coffee, organic coffee does not promote deforestation. In fact, it aids in the conservation of wildlife, birds, vegetation, and the prevention of soil erosion and diseases.

Farmer Benefits

  • Often farmers who produce certified organic coffee are fair trade compliant which guarantees a higher pay rate to employees.
  • Organic coffee beans (including the soil where it is grown) are free from residues, chemicals and artificial fertilizers and are certified to guarantee high quality to consumers. Not all organic coffee has all the below certifications, but the one I found one that does.
  • Certifications:
    • USDA Organic
    • Fair Trade Cetrified
    • Rainforest Alliance Certified
    • Bird-friendly Certified

This particular company is is all heart.   All coffee profits go to Be The Change Foundation – Imagine 100% to Charity! Can’t get better than that!
