Do you know that 85 % of the world's population has some kind of parasite living inside them? Parasites often go undetected and misdiagnosed but they can manifest as symptoms such as trouble sleeping, bloating, digestion issues and seizures. These parasites enter the body from other people, animals, mosquito, ticks, contaminated food, undercooked meat and unclean water.
Everyone experiences anxiety. Some people are plagued with anxiety and suffer daily from the symptoms that come along with it. Anxiety is a feeling of worry and effects the body mentally and physically. For many people, these symptoms can be debilitating and hard to live with. When one gets to this point, they seek medical attention and are prescribed pharmaceutical drugs that block the symptoms so the anxiety can be easier to live with. However, the anxiety medication causes awful side effects sometimes worse than the anxiety itself. Medications become addictive while causing damage to the vital organs in your body like the liver and kidneys.
Depression effects over 21% of the world's population. We are finding more and more that pharmaceutical drugs are not working for many people mainly because the side effects are so intense. Anti-Depressants are one of the most money making pharmaceutical drugs out there. People get very dependent on them and then they experience side effects such as suicidal tendencies, sleep problems, digestive disorders, decreased sex drive, constant nausea, headaches, dry mouth and cold symptoms to name a few. It becomes a constant ugly cycle of misery and dependency to only find that the depressed person is only able to cope in life rather than to thrive. Nature gives us many herbs, plants and foods that can heal and help us without the harsh side effects. Turmeric is one of these amazing gifts from the Earth.
My girls love to snack. So many of the snack foods at the market are either so full of toxic ingredients, preservatives or GMO's and they are packaged in plastic or they are Organic and ridiculously expensive. As my family goes more 'Off the Grid' I try to find more ways to make and store my own healthy organic treats. They love dried fruit, veggies and jerky and all you need is a dehydrator to make them. As we relinquish our need for electricity we will start only using a Solar Dehydrator. Food Dehydrators are so awesome to have in your kitchen. There are so many healthy treats you can make for your family. The dehydrator allows the food to retain 100 % of its nutritional value of vitamins, enzymes and nutrients. This is a great way to store extra food for long periods of time.
There are so many chemicals being sprayed in our air, in our drinking water and ocean water, and sprayed on our food. I am obsessed with finding and creating ways to help my body rid itself of these toxic substances that I am being forced to ingest against my will. For example, I have created Heavy Metal Cleanse Capsules that are a combination of ingredients that help to pull toxins out of the body while adding protection to the body. It keeps the immune system strong so the body will have the ability to keep itself free of disease.
The past few days the skies around me have been flooding with white streaks across the sky. In the morning there are a few streaks and by the afternoon the sky is coated in a blanket of white clouds. This act that "they" call geo-engineering is effecting our health and our environment. Yes, it will probably rain in a few days from all of the chemical combining which is great for the Earth, (especially here in Southern California where many winter days act as summer days).
However, the amount of chemicals in our air, water, and food is contributing to all of the complaints I keep hearing. Watery eyes, eye crust, runny nose, sinus issues, lethargy, head congestion, to name a few.
What really concerns me is how is this effecting my children. How are their little bodies processing all of these harsh chemicals? Yesterday, when we were playing at the playground, I could not stop looking up as one white streak after another formed X's in the sky. I noticed when we got home that their noses were a bit runny, they were lethargic and they complained of their eyes burning. I quickly went into Earth Mama mode and thought how am I going to help their bodies detox from the chemicals. A Children's Spa Day happened next! I took my children through a detox process from head to toe and inside and out. I wanted to share with you what I did in case you want to help your children Detox.
I set up an area with cushions and pillows and towels covering them. I asked them to lie on the towels while I placed their feet into warm bowls of water mixed with bentonite clay, magnesium flakes, baking soda, and some lavender oils.
While they were soaking their feet, I made a mask with Bentonite clay, Green Tea and Honey and lathered it on their face.
While the mask was drying on their skin, I warmed a bit of Coconut Oil and rubbed it into their hair.
I then made them a cup of Organic Rooibos Tea which they drank as they relaxed.
Then I set up a warm bath with my Detox Bath Salts.
They washed their hair out at the same time.
When they got out of the bath and dried off, I gave them a glass of water with Diamatceous Earth, Chlorella, Zeolite, Cilantro Powder and Activated Charcoal. They love it!
Honestly after our spa day, their runny noses went away, their skin looked amazing, and they had loads of energy but yet felt calm and grounded. They had a full body detox.
Today they are feeling great!
It was such a great experience for me as an Earthie Mama. I created an opportunity to pamper my children using my homemade mixtures and helped them Detox any harmful chemicals that have leached into their skin. Our children are the future, let them lead this life with the strongest body possible; not one riddled with disease.

Oil pulling is a traditional Ayurvedic detox technique that involves swishing oil in the mouth. It is said that it helps remove harmful bacteria and pulls toxins out of gums and teeth. I love this because it is so beneficial, extremely effective, cheap, easy and of course ALL NATURAL. Oil pulling helps the body's natural detoxification process. Usually it is best done in the morning upon waking but can be done all day long. It can act like a cup of coffee, waking you up. It also clears out the bacteria that has accumulated in your mouth while sleeping. Wherever you are in the world, this is a great way to maintain oral health. All you need is some oil. I use Coconut Oil, it tastes good to me and it is anti-bacterial. However, you can use other oils like Olive Oil or Sunflower Oil. Please use Organic oils!
I am always creating concoctions of healthy ingredients that will help the body feel better. I make a tonic that I call Master Tonic. I have been making it and using it for years now. I have witnessed the benefits from many around me and I have felt my own shifts from drinking the tonic. However, my children will not drink it, which is understandable seeing that some of the ingredients are peppers and horseradish. So after research and playing around with ingredients and 3 taste testers, I have developed my own Immune Tonic. It is made especially for children over the age of 1 (because of the raw honey added). All of the ingredients are Organic and of the highest quality and combine to boost the immune system to prevent illness while helping replenish the body's most important vitamins. I am now offering it in my store but I want to give you the recipe to make at home too!
