Tick Bites and Lyme–What to Do? Fear no More!

Tick Bites and Lyme–What to Do? Fear no More!

Finding a tick with its head buried into your flesh can be disconcerting in itself.  Worrying about what diseases it might be carrying is another whole matter.  Do we just need to wait in fear for the dreaded target rings to appear around the bite? Or wonder every time we go out into the woods about what new infection might afflict us?  Most of us probably know someone with Lyme Disease, and it’s no laughing matter.  The symptoms are serious and life-changing.  But what can we do?

Strategies for Stopping Bedwetting

A friend of mine recently asked for help for her 7 year-old who was still wetting the bed at night. (The official term is nocturnal enuresis). The friend has to get up multiple times in the night to take her daughter to the bathroom or there is a mess to clean up in the morning. This isn’t something people talk about a lot because of the embarrassment attached to it.  Not only does it bring loads of laundry, it brings loads of shame–what does a child do when spending the night at a friend’s house or camp? Nobody wants their friends to discover the soaked sleeping bag. Read the rest of this entry »

How Are You at Being…Different?

How Are You at Being…Different?


“…with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,
 eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:2-3

Do you often feel like you’re the odd man out? Does being different bother you, or are you okay with it?  Recently I was challenged by a friend to reflect on ways I was different from most in our society. The following is part of that list: Read the rest of this entry »

They Hatched! Mama Hen & her Chicks

They Hatched!  Mama Hen & her Chicks

“He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge” –Psalm 92:4

In my last post I shared about searching for eggs in the hay, discovering a hen with a nest, and deciding to let her try and hatch her eggs. The next day, I peeked under her feathers and found the black eyes of a fluffy, yellow chick peering back at me! How exciting! They were actually hatching! The thought of it made me walk around with a smile on my face all day. Read the rest of this entry »

Egg Hunts–Not Just for Easter Anymore!

Egg Hunts–Not Just for Easter Anymore!

“The only thing that ever sat its way to success was a hen”–Sarah Brownimag0094

My mom grew up on a farm and would tell me about how one of her childhood jobs was to climb up into the hay in the barn and find the eggs that the chickens hid there. Having mice and snakes surprise her was sometimes just too much and she would quietly refuse to perform her egg-collecting duties.  But eventually a mother hen would come proudly strutting along with her chicks in tow and Mom’s neglect would be discovered.

Hepar Sulph: the Homeopathic Infection Fighter

Hepar Sulph: the Homeopathic Infection Fighter

Often people take antibiotics because they think it is the only way to fight infection.  They don’t know what else to do.  I once fell into that category.

But since I have been learning about homeopathy, I have discovered a wonderful remedy that gives infection a powerful punch without the harmful side effects of antibiotics. (For more information, please read the series of posts on the importance of gut health and the negative role antibiotics can play on your gut health and immune system.) That amazing remedy is Hepar Sulphuris, or Hep-S for short. Read the rest of this entry »

No More Dry Turkey: How to have a moist, mouth-watering bird on Thanksgiving Day

No More Dry Turkey: How to have a moist, mouth-watering bird on Thanksgiving Day

“That’s the ultimate goal of most turkey recipes: to create a great skin and stuffing to hide the fact that turkey meat, in its cooked state, is dry and flavorless. Does it have to be that way? No.”
—Alton Brown

Everyone knows that the traditional main course to eat on Thanksgiving is a turkey.  But I didn’t grow up that way because my dad hates turkey. We enjoyed a ham, instead.  Why does he despise all things turkey?  Because it often is so dry and hard to swallow.  Turkeys can cost a lot of money to buy, especially if you get one that’s been raised organically or the like, so it’s a shame when it comes out of the oven just being okay.   Read the rest of this entry »
