Detox Baths: Recipes to Calm the Inner Beast and Whiny Children

Photo Credit: Dennis Wong This week, we’re talking about detox baths. Lovely, healing, make-you-feel-human-again detox baths. As a holistic practitioner, I heavily recommend them for a gentle method of pulling toxins out of the skin when the detoxification system is compromised. Don’t forget to read the first post on Baby Step # 2 |Detox Baths| if you […]

What Is a Rotation Diet? {Part 1}

Eat a wider variety of natural, unprocessed foods while allowing your body to heal. You have seen meal plans and heard the words ‘rotation diet’ thrown around here at 20 something allergies for quite awhile now. Are you still a bit unclear on what it is or the benefits to them? Let us help! The […]

Bedtime Yoga Routine for Amazing Sleep

A good night sleep is essential to a well-grounded productive day. It resets your body processes and restores body and mind. Practicing a short – or extended – yoga routine specifically designed to relax your nervous system and calm your energies is the perfect way to transition out of the rush and exhaustion of the […]

GAPS Re-Intro Day 7, Stage 1 to 6 or Somewhere In Between

I have to say today was not our best day. I started with low blood sugar. I didn’t eat enough fat, since I don’t have a stockpile of various fats to rotate yet and can’t have chicken schmaltz too often. I wish my ducks would hurry and thaw! Then, detox settled in and I was cranky as could […]

GAPS Re-intro Day 5, Tomorrow Begins Stage 1!

I knew today would be a bit off with food. We had an appointment with our family MD around lunchtime, and that throws the morning into arrears. I went to ask about Katie’s constantly itchy skin (liver dysfunction) and almost manic desire for cold and crunchy (possible iron deficiency) and came away with a huge thumbs […]

GAPS Re-Intro Day 4, [Insert Witty Phrase Here]

I keep forgetting to write ‘organic’ next to our foods so assume it’s organic unless I note otherwise for expediency’s sake. Just about the only things that we use that aren’t organic are duck fat, Celtic sea salt, and elderberry syrup. We both slept well and feel refreshed this morning. Katie woke with a bellyache […]

GAPS Re-intro Day 3, Here Comes The Soup

And the true random rambles of brain fog set in… Today, we are getting slightly cranky. Katie is more short of patience than I am, but I’m also feeling detox creeping in a bit. I feel like San Francisco with the brain fog that is sweeping over my head. I’m happy to note that I want to […]
