This has been a whirlwind year. Katie turned 5; I became a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner; and this blog finally found it’s mission – to teach you about holistic healing therapies while continuing to share my family’s healing journey.
To celebrate, let’s take a look back at the most popular posts from 2013.
1. Detox Baths: Recipes to Calm the Inner Beast and Whiny Children
This comprehensive post on detox baths has caught the attention of almost 300,000 people since it was published.
Detox baths are of the best and easiest ways to help detoxify the body.
Recipes include —
Relaxation for the Rest of Us
Itch Be Gone
A Little Pick-Me-Up
Sensitive Skin Soak
Secondary Allergic Reactions
Beat the Blahs
2. A Simple Way to Test for Adrenal Fatigue – At Home!
I use this quick adrenal fatigue test in my practice. It’s super simple and can be done with only a mirror and a small flashlight.
Will you pass or fail?
3. How I Stopped a Gall Bladder Attack Naturally
You can find out my exact method for stopping a gall bladder attack and get the recipe for my Gall Bladder Tonic.
This post is especially popular after the holidays.
4. Silky Banana Bread Bites
Silky Banana Bread Bites are of the only recipes on the web for a baked treat that doesn’t include eggs or egg substitutes (seeds like flax and chia should never be heated).
Amazingly versatile, I have even made it into a delicious pumpkin coffee cake without bananas and tasty blueberry muffins that are perfect for a lunchbox treat.
5. Boost Your Immune System in 15 Seconds: How To Thump Your Thymus
Thumping your thymus is a popular Eastern practice for improving your immune system and increasing energy levels.
I show you the exact method for effective thymus thumping. I also talk about gorillas.
6. Oil Pulling: A How To Guide for Better Health
Oil pulling is a holistic treatment for gum infections, bad breath, under eye circles and puffiness, whitens teeth, and is my secret method for tightening up my face and neck muscles without any nipping or tucking necessary.
I’m actually oil pulling as I write this.
7. DIY Herbal Cough Drops: Sore Throat Remedy
This all-natural throat lozenge is the first remedy I reach for when any of us have a sore throat or are dealing with that annoying throat tickle that causes endless coughing.
Because of its mucilaginous properties, it’s also a soothing remedy for upset tummies.
8. How to Lose Weight and Have More Energy: At-Home Iodine Protocol
Iodine has been one of my miracle nutrients for energy. I created a protocol for iodine supplementation that can help regulate thyroid function and allow you to face the day with excitement instead of exhaustion.
9. DIY Healing Skin Balm
My tallow-based skin balm is the only one of its kind. Over 5 months of development went into its creation, and it has become a popular remedy for those dealing with severe dry skin and skin conditions like eczema. It’s also gentle enough for even your youngest littles.
Pregnant mamas go crazy for this stuff to help with itchy, stretching skin.
10. How I Stopped Wasting Money on Conventional Shampoo
I really wish everyone knew about Sweet Orange and Honey Shampoo, so they could achieve beautiful, shiny, luxurious hair without a head full of chemicals. Toxins that may cause hormone disruption, hair loss, dandruff, and even cancer.
Everything that you put on your skin, you put IN your skin. Sweet Orange and Honey Shampoo is made of only 3 ingredients and can be made right in your kitchen.
This is by far the most popular book on my site.
Happy New Year from my family to yours!
