Switching to an Organic Lifestyle~Guest Post by Sophia Smith

Switching to an Organic Lifestyle   Research has shown that an organic lifestyle brings you many more benefits than the conventional one. The word ‘organic’ is usually associated with food, but you can make your life more organic in many other ways, not just by eating foods that are pesticide-free. ‘Organic’, in this context, can be replaced with the word ‘healthy’. While it may seem overwhelming to switch to a completely different regime of living from the one you’ve known {Read More}

Make-a-change Monday~It only takes twenty seconds…

Make-a-change Mondays is all about making small changes to become the person I want to be…or more importantly, the person God wants me to be.  The greatest of all journeys begins with a single step.  A few months ago the {make-a-change Monday} challenge was to Just Do It. In that post I talked about writing a book and how it took small steps—changes a little at a time. I’m know I’m on a great journey, but yes, I’m still working {Read More}

Tips to a Happier You in 2012~Stretch Your Way to Happy

When Marlee was just a toddler, she would stretch endlessly. When I would go to get her up in the mornings, she would stall saying, “Hang on, I’m not finished stretching yet.” And she would stretch to one side, then the other, procrastinating because she didn’t want to get out of bed.  But she always got up in the best of moods!  Stretching does so much for our mind and body. When I get up in the morning, I try {Read More}

Make-a-change Monday~Maintaining a Healthy Body pH Could Save Your Life!

Between my career as a pharmacist and the seven years I spent trying to fix myself, I learned a LOT about health and nutrition.  One thing you can count on in the world of nutrition is everyone has an opinion and they believe their way is the best way.  Through research and/or personal experience, I tried:  •   Xango Juice •   Barley Green •   Juicing •   The Hallelujah Diet (all raw food) •   The 21-day Detox Diet •   Juice Plus •   {Read More}

Tips to a Happier You in 2012~Time to Dance

   I will admit that this Southern Baptist girl hasn’t done much dancing in her time. It’s not that I don’t like dancing; I’ve just never had many opportunities to dance. There was my senior prom, for which my date (now my hubby) and I learned to shag, but beyond that we have never spent too much time in ballrooms. With the era of X-Box and PlayStation, you no longer need a fancy dress and a ballroom to dance. You {Read More}

Tips to a Happier You in 2012~Do you have insomnia? Learn how to sleep!

When God created the earth, he rested on the seventh day. Wouldn’t it be nice if we only had to rest once a week? It sure would free up time for my to-do list. But sleep doesn’t work that way. God created us to need sleep, and unfortunately, a little more than once a week.  When I was in the midst of my seven years of hell, insomnia plagued me frequently. In my depression, all I wanted to do was {Read More}

Make-a-change Monday~Just drink water!

Since New Year’s Day, our local YMCA has been packed. No parking spaces, no machines available, and classes full. It’s January 30th. I give it two more weeks.  We love to make big promises to ourselves and start fresh, but in reality, it’s impossible to make big changes all at once. When I began writing, if I’d realized all that was involved, I never would have started. I’ve learned little bits of information at a time, and looking back on {Read More}

Tips to a Happier You in 2012~Get Moving!

When God created man, He sent them out to work in the garden. He didn’t tell them to sit down at the computer and play Farmville on Facebook.  We were created in His image.  He created the intricately detailed system of nerves, glands, neurons, and neurotransmitters in our brain that controls our emotions.  All that He created was good.  But our world has changed.   As I mentioned in a recent post on the benefits of being outdoors, (click here to {Read More}

Tips for a Happier you in 2012~Do you have nature deficit disorder?

Since yesterday’s post was rather lengthy and also gave you tips to a happier you, I’ll make today’s tip simple and easy.  Go outside! Just as in today’s prescription verse, there are many references in scripture to the calming power of nature–God’s creation.  The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for {Read More}

A Whole Man

     Do you find yourself on a wild goose chase when you develop some sort of symptom you cannot figure out? That chase can lead to many painful years of you get trapped in it. I believe it’s time to take our health into our own hands (which are in God’s hands) to get the best possible care in medicine today.      Creation: God created the heavens and the earth…light and dark, water and land, fish and birds, {Read More}
