ometimes necessity shapes the direction we take in life. The greater we become aware that whatever we consume and whatever we put on our bodies directly effects our health, the easier it will be to choose healing herbs for our daily living. That is foods, herbs, & naturally created products for our bodies that are free from synthetic chemicals, unnatural pesticides, and petroleum derived products.
Personally I also exclude any process using animals, which includes any kind of cruelty, testing, or exterminating.

Becoming More Aware
Depending on the foods we consume or the ingredients we use on our skin, makes a big difference in how our bodies are able to absorb them. Unfortunately some ingredients are contributing factors in the buildup of plaque in our arteries. The buildup of Plaque causes the arteries to narrow making blood flow difficult, creating a risk for heart attack or stroke, which statistics show is the leading cause of death in the United States.
The Good News Is…
With modified diets, and exercise, it is possible to prevent early deaths due to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and other leading causes of death. This sounds relatively simple, but it is a big endeavor if you are just beginning. My belief is to start in small increments and build from there. Say to yourself “Today, when I go grocery shopping I am going to purchase only organic salad greens.” Or the next time you need to purchase face cream, search your local organic grocers, farmers markets, or search the web for only organic or natural ingredients.
