Are you one of those people grabbing items off the shelf that say "sugar free" and giving them to your family? Lots of people are! They think this means that it is healthier. But, the truth is most things that say "sugar free" have toxic sugar substitutes in them that are so unhealthy for you it isn't even funny! They can cause terrible diseases. It would be better to eat sugar than a sugar substitute. Amongst the natural "sugars" there are many choices, some good, some not so good. This article gives you a run down.

We can learn from our past mistakes and do a better job from this day forward in our own lives.
But, a huge benefit to some life changing health crisis, is that learning new tools for taking care
of our health impacts our children and that will change the course of their lives from the beginning.
How fantastic is that? I found the following article and thought it may be of interest to some of

So, you stop drinking sodas, sugar substitute juice, and all the rest of the "junk" drinks and start drinking your 8 glasses of water a day, and...discover, maybe what you are drinking is not so good for you? There are so many problems with the issue of water, I am not sure where to begin. Maybe we can start by the fact it is cleaned with chlorine. Well, necessary, right? Because this practice has given us germ free water, but, what happens if we consume chlorine? If we consume enough of it, we will be on our way to the hospital.

Superbugs, like MRSA are becoming huge problems in health and medicine owing to the overuse of antibiotics-yet another reason to reduce the number of times we allow our body to be treated with them unnecessarily. MRSA can be killed with natural herbal remedies as can staphylococcus, streptococcus and numerous other kinds of infections. Using natural resources for these purposes prevents superbugs from emerging due to overuse of antibiotics and it encourages the collective strengthening of our immune systems as a whole as well as individually.

There are many things that are involved in your child's allergies or asthma. It starts with constitution, has everything to do with choices in healthcare and diet, and also includes exposure to environmental toxins. Environmental toxins include things outside the home, but also include toxins inside the home. Many things that we bring into the home effect the health of our children. We are very familiar with the recent case of John Travolta's son. When he was young, Mr.

Years ago, in search of health, I began to study medicine. First, western medicine, and later various kinds of alternative medicines. I was interested in all of them. But, when I stumbled upon Chinese medicine, all of the sudden, it was like, the world began to speak my language. Odd, bc I am not Chinese. Nor dis I have any exposure to Asian culture what so ever at that point in my life. But, when I read my very first book on the subject it spoke to me in a profound way. The first book I read was "The Web That HAs No Weaver" by Ted Kaptchuck.

Constipation is a huge issue for many people. In fact, so much so, that I stopped asking people, "are your bowels moving normally?". Because, people will always respond, "yes!". Then later in the conversation somehow it will come up that they may only go every three to four days and have done their entire life! People don't even realize what constipation is.There is a lot of misinformation about bowel movements. But, basically, if you are not going AT LEAST one time per day (going more often in a day is much better), then, you are constipated.

When people are overweigtht they think diet, they dont think change. They cut calories, or fat, they dont rearrange their eating habits. Most people dont realize how many pounds they hang onto just by eating things like sugar and alcohol. Sugar and alcohol are not thought of as fatty foods so most people dont cut those out. There is lots more to good health than just cutting alcohol and sugar, but if you only cut those out, you would start getting ahead of the battle with the scale.
