Juice Cleansing: My Personal Experience

I did a 10-day juice fast… here’s why. Fasting has become a regular part of my routine, I do it almost every day (we all do, actually – fasting between dinner and breakfast).

Earthing & Grounding: How to Do it

The idea that walking barefoot outside will “ground” us and make us healthier.

Since working on my computer more […]

Real Vs. Fake Honey: How to Tell the Difference

Natural, pure, organic honey can be so healthful. However, is this what you’re buying at the supermarket?

How Grains may be Killing You Slowly…

There’s a lot of controversy around grains… Do we eat them? Do we not? So, what is the right choice?
