Goddess Going Green – Again

Forgive me, Mother Earth, for I have sinned…

I have really let my green and lovely habits slip this summer, and I really don’t know why. I suppose I could blame it on the stress. On laziness or perhaps a desire to make family life a little bit easier. It’s kinda hard being the only one who cares, and there has been some conflicts over everything from what we’re having for dinner (and who’s making it), how the dishes are supposed to be cleaned (somehow an antibacterial dish washer soap made it to my kitchen cabinet, while the lovely and natural Ecover version found itself in the basement(!)), and I could just go on and on.

Natural Home Remedies for the Cold

I just knew something was going on. I woke up early yesterday, and my body was aching all over – a sure sign of my body starting to fight something bad.

Could You Be Nature Deprived?

A really, really long time ago, we were hunter/gatherers, living with and of nature. We were exposed to the elements, we breathed fresh air, drank clean water and ate natural foods. Then, some 10 000 years ago, we moved into agriculture. That pretty much wreaked havoc to our health, leaving us with tooth decay and a more fragile bone structure. We also became shorter, and archeologists have found that our health in general was declining from that point onward.
