Tips to Keep Easter Healthy

April 18, 2011

Easter is one of the worst holidays for colored “treats” for children.  Unnatural dyes in foods are beyond bad for children and adults for that matter.  They cause hyperactivity, tumors, endocrine disruption, thyroid dysfunction, severe allergic reaction, and just a “rainbow” of negative effects.  They have even been banned in Europe (although it seems they […]

Birth plan and possible “disruptions”

July 27, 2010

I have a friend who was researching her options between homebirth with a midwife, and a natural hospital birth.  At that point, I had already had two succesful midwife assisted births under my belt, and the third planned unassisted birth was looming.  She had decided that she was going to go with a natural hospital […]

Birth: Asking the Right Questions

July 20, 2010
