Goals, Resolutions or Intentions?

This is the time of year when we look at our goals from last year, see how we did, make new ones for the new year, and then formulate a plan for making it all happen. I’m very glad to have this process, especially this year. Last week I thought I hadn’t done very well on…

Chugging Chaga For Cancer Prevention

Have you ever heard of Chaga? Neither had I until a friend mentioned it and now I can’t get enough! Chaga is a beneficial fungus that grows on yellow  birch (and a few white) trees in northern climates. The more research I did on Chaga, the more we wanted to try some. My neighbor mentioned that she had…

Prepare For The Holidays? NOT!

Now that Halloween is over, the rest of the holidays will come sliding in at a speed to rival a tornado in the midwest. Hold on to your hats!  When people ask me if I am ready for the holidays, I cringe; I’ve never met anyone who is ready. We cannot be “prepared for” the…

A Round of Honey For Everyone!

September is National Honey month. Interesting – I wonder if that means my honey, Ned, or the honey I put in my tea? Did you know that honey can help you beat seasonal allergies? Yes, indeed. I have tested it out with many clients, family, and friends, and it works every time! One tablespoon of…

Cold Weather Eating Habits

I plan to keep this body that I have been blessed with in good shape, and in keeping with that thought, I’ll be moving into my fall eating pattern soon. Yogic traditions recommend eating seasonally, as that aligns our body with nature, and is the way to better health. I am one of those who…
