Is Health Your #1 Priority?

Virtual Gut Health Class

April’s class is on the books! Monday April 10th 7pm CST. 

Our first few classes have been well received, and we’ve been asked by numerous people to host another one… You ask. We deliver! Moving forward we will be offering our gut health class on a monthly basis.

“I took the class and it was very informative. The questionnaire that we filled out before hand allowed me to make personal connection to the information as we went along. The information that was shared helped me put 2 and 2 together for myself and my son. The connection of our emotional health being connected to our gut health was eye opening and I believe I now have a clear path for improving both in my life! Liz James is a wealth of knowledge and she has a heart of caring for people! Priceless! This was life changing! Thank you and I am looking forward to more classes like this” ~JE
“Liz’s Gut Health 101 class was very informative on many levels. I have been working closely with a local Nutritional Wellness center for 11 months trying to get my gut back to healthy. Even after all that time and all that they have taught me and that I have learned from extensive reading, I still learned more from Liz in her class. I am looking forward to more of her teaching. She is clear and concise and easy to understand. I think everyone I know should take this class. I KNOW that if they did and followed her advice they would feel a whole lot better!! ~KT
“What a wonderful class. I learned a great deal and was especially fascinated by the link between chronic skin issues being and indicator of the health of one’s gut. Well taught and easy to understand. The pre-class questionnaire was awesome!! Nice job ladies!” -AC

Purity Matters…. and so do Toxins

Earlier this week I made a comment in a gardening post, and I wanted to expand on that a little more. The comment made was in regards to the purity of our gardening bounty and how important it is to know both your source and how your food (ie: the plants or animals) is cared for from seed (or birth) to the farm table.

As you might have guessed by now, I am an advocate of following this principle in all aspects of life.

Knowing your source……whether that be your: Continue reading “Purity Matters…. and so do Toxins”

WOOF(er) Pups

I think gardeners must suffer a worse case of spring fever than the average Joe, and North Texas weather only plays with our emotions making the situation even worse. We have beautiful days followed by cold snaps frequently with little or no warning. It’s a dance of self control and roulette with the Farmer’s Almanac officiating.

We have no kids of our own, so the farm and garden are managed by us alone. If you live on a farm, you know that the chore list is never ending. Gardening season kicks that list up a notch or two. This season we are trying something new. Have you heard of WOOFing? Continue reading “WOOF(er) Pups”

Gardener’s Crack

In early winter I start itching to get my paws on the latest edition of The Whole Seed Catalog. It’s crack for the organic gardener. Truly. I’m not sure how many times I thumb thru the catalog highlighting, circling, and dogear-ing pages before I make my final selections. I feel like Imelda Marcos in a shoe store. Rareseeds.com is my ‘go to’ source for seeds simply because I trust them and I respect their ethical stance on heirloom seed preservation. Their seeds aren’t just heirloom, they are also organic.

Kryptonite gotcha down?

Sustainable Wellness Practices. Sustainability defined by Websters: “able to be maintained at a certain rate or level”.

My career path (pharmacy) has placed me in a ringside seat of wellness gone south. Approximately 116 Million Americans suffer from chronic pain.  Standard western medicine gives answers to chronic pain that are NOT sustainable solutions. There is not one Opioid or NSAID (Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatory) or other pain reliever that provides a sustainable answer to a long term problem. Long term use of any of them will inevitably lead to a body system dysfunction. Continue reading “Kryptonite gotcha down?”

To brighten your day….

Ya’ll have a great weekend! It’s been 80+ degrees here this week…. cray cray weather, even for north Texas in February. It’s been a record breaking warm winter and I’m sure hoping there isn’t one more freeze…. my fruit trees are starting to bloom! #oilyfarmsquirrel #prayingmakeslifebetter #henrithesquirrel

Oh My Darlin’…….

Jerseys are like potato chips… you can’t have just one! Clementine is the second cow we purchased to feed our raw milk habit. About 15 years ago, we discovered the health benefits of raw milk, and then 5 years later, we fell head over heels in love with Jerseys.  Continue reading “Oh My Darlin’…….”

Dolphin MPS….Another Tool for the Toolbox

Every craftsman (or woman) has tools. The longer the trade has been plied, the more diverse the tools.

As I work towards filling my ‘toolbox’ with health and wellness minded tools, sometimes I find something that just shouts out to me. There are some things EVERYONE should know about and partake in……if they want to manage their health in a sustainable way. Taking medication daily for pain is NOT a sustainable solution to a potentially long term problem. As a pharmacist, I witness the after effects of chronic pain medication use.

Prepper Food Guide! Must have foods for any prepper!

This post is a list of simple things to keep in your short-term home stockpile. Most are not “typical food storage” items, but this isn’t a typical food storage book. All items listed can not only be stored, but can be easily used in your daily life. Storing these things is a painless way to […]
