Avoiding Toxins in Your Household Cleaners

Household cleaning products have been responsible for everything from skin rashes to deadly poisoning. In the short term, many ingredients found in household cleaners can irritate eyes and skin. Frequently added fragrances are known to cause headaches, sneezing, and respiratory irritation. When ingested, such as by small children in the home, some cleaning products are so toxic that death is a possible result.

The long-term impact of toxic cleaners is less known. Environmentally, there is evidence that some cleaners contribute to algal blooms and harm the reproductive capacity of fish in areas where water used for cleaning is discharged. Household cleaner toxins may reduce sperm count in men, contribute to birth defects, and increase the incidence of some cancers. It’s time to switch to solutions that are safe and effective.

Seek out natural, nontoxic alternatives when doing laundry. HerbsPro offers a number of options for both cleaning and softening as well as for stain removal. If you have people in your household who are particularly sensitive, seek out options that are fragrance-free.

One of the most toxic items in many households is drain cleaner. But there are alternatives to having this unsafe product in your home. Look for a drain opener that contains enzymes instead of toxic chemicals.

Fish Oil to the Rescue

Fish oil is one of the most studied supplements. There is strong evidence of its efficacy in lowering triglyceride levels and thus fighting heart disease, including lowering the likelihood of the onset of heart disease and lessening the impact for those who already have the disease. There is evidence that fish oil can provide relief for those with osteoperosis, cancer, arthritis, ADHD, kidney problems, and even menstrual cramps.

However, some people avoid taking fish oil because of a lasting impressing that “fish equals fishy” and thus that taking fish oil will be unpleasant. Fish oil is so essential to good health that it is worth searching out an option feasible for you and that can make it part of your regular routine.

Most fish oils today in their liquid form include a natural citrus oil additive to improve the taste. You can try PFO Pure Fish Oil from Health from the sun with its orange oil and rosemary extract, or Now Foods Omega-3 Fish Oil Lemon Lemon with its natural lemony taste.

Softgels surround fish oil in an easy-to swallow gel-coated oval so that you never taste the oil itself. They come in multiple sizes so, if swallowing large supplements is a challenge for you, you likely can find a smaller option that meets your needs.

You can even get purified fish oil in gummy form, especially useful for children taking the supplement.

Fighting Dry, Chapped, Lips

Dry, chapped, lips can plague you any time of the year. The sun and heat remove moisture, cold winds chap, and working out further exacerbates irritations. Keeping your lips smooth and pain free is an ongoing battle. Let’s look at some of your options for natural lip care. Look for lip-quenching oils such as olive and sesame to moisturize and shea butter or wax to seal and protect.

If you’ll be in the sun, seek out a lip balm with an SPF of 15 or higher to block out harmful rays. Brands like Kiss My Face and Alba Botanicals make lip balms perfect for day’s outdoors.

Happy Holidays for Fido and Fifi

The holidays are upon us. In many homes, that means lots of hustle and bustle with friends and family stopping by. A little advance preparation can help you to prepare your dog to have a happy, healthy holiday.

Changed routines and the coming and going of guests increase stress levels not only for you but also for your pet. The holidays may be the perfect time to begin adding a supplement to your dog’s food to help Fido to enjoy these hectic days. Special supplements, formulated just for dogs, focus on lowering anxiety levels and keeping them calm, cool, and collected throughout the holiday season – and throughout the year to come.

Give your dog a shampoo to help him to look his best when out and about or when visitors come to call to spread holiday cheer. Keep in mind though that most dogs only need to be washed every few months as too-frequent washings can strip away the natural oils of their coats and inflame dry skin. Do not use shampoo or conditioners made for humans – their ph level is not appropriate for a dog and may make him itchy. You’ll want a gentle, natural solution that will remove accumulated dirt and leave your pet’s coat shiny and smooth. Continue Reading →

All About Herbal Laxatives

Everyone has suffered from a painful feeling of bloating and constipation. What can be done about it? Most choose to take some pill or other medicine. However, there are other ways to relieve the pain and pressure. Natural and herbal laxatives often work better than the pharmaceutical alternatives and with fewer side effects.

What is a laxative?

A laxative is a substance that helps one have a bowel movement. It helps unplug the roadblocks in the digestive system that cause constipation.

How do laxatives work?

There are several different kinds of laxatives and each work slightly differently. For long-term digestive health the best thing to do is eat a diet rich in fiber. This will keep constipation at bay. However, a fiber rich diet may take days or longer to make a difference. If suffering from an acute case of constipation most take a stimulant laxative that stimulates the nerves in the large intestine, forcing the muscles to contract tighter than usual, forcing the blockage to pass through the body. There are also laxatives that soften the stool in the intestines and allow it to pass easier. Continue Reading →

Health Benefits of Probiotics

Probiotic Supplements

Everyone knows what antibiotics are. This modern medical miracle has extended life expectancies and eliminated much of the fear of children getting ill. But what are probiotics? While antibiotics target and kill bacteria, probiotics do the opposite, they promote the health of bacteria in the body. Science has shown that not all bacteria are harmful to humans. Instead human health actually depends quite heavily on large numbers of “good” bacteria for proper functioning of the digestive system. Antibiotics can actually throw the body out of balance by killing off not only harmful sickness causing bacteria, but also useful bacteria. Children often take more antibiotics than adults.
