cleanse

Many of us woke up on New Years Day feeling the after-effect of a month of indulgences. The tired, foggy, exhausted feeling that can inspire even the most dramatic dietary changes and cleanses. And now it’s a few months later and we’ve persevered. We’ve even enjoyed some of it (isn’t an evening mug of Flor-Essence (US/CA) surprisingly lovely?), and now what? Where do we go from here? How do we continue these great feelings of health and vitality in normal…

This means that oral health probiotics may also help control yeast in the mouth and throat,…
