There is a lot of controversy these days over the facts about water fluoridation. Is it safe? Is it harmful? Is it downright toxic? According to the American Dental Association, fluoride: 1) protects against cavities 2) prevents tooth decay 3) is safe and effective 4) saves money and 5) is natural. Is this really the case though?

Summer is here! For many of us that means more time in the sunshine. Whether you’re spending a day at the beach or enjoying a simple stroll through the neighborhood, there’s a higher likelihood of getting sun exposure in this season than in others. Of course the big question is—-how do protect your skin from harmful UV rays? There is a lot of fear around increased skin cancer risk from overexposure to the sun, and yet conventional sunscreens contain a lot of chemicals that are also concerning.

From aspartame to saccharin, many of these chemical sugar alternatives are being guzzled down in popular flavored waters with the idea of "diet" in mind.

Hold Your Breath! Examining the Quality of Air Inside Our Homes…

Posted by Andie Dill

It is no surprise that our world is full of contaminants and pollutants. Everywhere you turn it seems there are signs, notices or just the ill effects of poor air quality. The sad reality is that these pollutants continue to rise and there does not seem to be a whole lot of action to stop it. One of the biggest things that has happened in my hometown within the last couple years is that the city has started irrigating all the land with recycled water.

Unfortunately, that water is off-gassing harmful chemicals into the air, which go straight into our lungs.

DIY Nourishing Geranium Hand Cream

Posted by Andie Dill

Have you ever looked at the back of one of your hand lotions? Were you aware that there is an ingredients list, just like there is an ingredients list for food? The skin is the largest organ of the body, and just like you have to watch what you put in your body, it is just as important to watch what you put on your body.

The Benefits of Supplementing with Milk Thistle

Posted by Andie Dill

What do you first think of when you hear “Milk Thistle?” If you are like me when I first heard about milk thistle, I pictured a milky, thorny, plant. Little did I know! I laugh to this day because when I recommend milk thistle to others now, I often get that same perplexed look, and every once in a while somebody exclaims, “I am allergic to dairy!” Well, turns out milk thistle is actually a weed, a ragweed to be exact, and though it can grow in almost any warm climate around the world, milk thistle is found in abundance in my home state of California!
