5 Home Remedies for UTIs

May 17, 2017
UTIs

Is that uncomfortable pain, something many describe as razorblade-like pain, something you’re familiar with? If so, you’re not alone. More than half of us will deal with a Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) at some point in our lives, and 1 in 5 of us will have recurrent UTIs. Many of you know this feeling really well. If this is your first possible UTI, be sure to go to your doctor for a proper diagnosis and treatment. But if you’ve had more…

Keep Calm and Call Your Mom

May 14, 2017
mom

Of all the Hallmark holidays, I think most would agree that Mother’s Day is one of the most deserving. Move over National Donut Day, I have more memories of mom making kick-ass pancakes with warm maple syrup, that both warm the tummy and heart. Think about it, when someone makes it on TV, who do they give a shout out to? “Hi mom!” When we are sick, the first person we want is mommy. And who’s the second most important…

Organic Gardening with Flora

May 3, 2017

Making good food choices starts at home. One great way to introduce fresh and healthful ingredients to your meals? Planting an organic garden. With a bit of planning and TLC, fresh, seasonal fruit and veggies can be just a pick away. In fact, we love the idea so much we planted our own employee community garden at our Flora office in Lynden, Washington three years ago. Since April 2014, the garden’s yielded everything from sweet strawberries and raspberries to snap…

Introducing FloraSil: Rock Out with your Claws Out!

April 24, 2017
Silica

I think most of us would agree there is no better feeling than long nails tickling your back. I can trade almost any house chore with my hubby for back scratches. If eyes are the windows to the soul, nails are the self-expression of our self-value. They indicate hygiene, health, and creativity. (Yes, it’s normal to be checking out your nails right now.) And how about the six-word sentence that can ruin your morning? “I’m having a bad hair day.”…

CircuVein – “I’m gettin’ vain about my veins!”

April 17, 2017
CircuVein

We all know the song, “You’re so vain,” sing it with me! “I bet you think this blog is about you.” Well, yes, it totally is! Because when it comes to other types of veins, such as varicose, we are allowed to be vain as all heck! True, sometimes it may just be a cosmetic bother with spider veins creating little webs on the backs of our legs, but other times they can cause real discomfort, swelling, and soreness. Anytime…

Gas & Bloating? Enzymes to the Rescue!

April 14, 2017

“I fit into these jeans yesterday and now I’m too bloated to zip all the way up!” We’ve all been there! Not a great way to feel when the big B hits. Bloat is the ugly cousin to gas because that air has to escape our bodies somehow. Two undesirable side effects that make us question, “Was that deep fried Oreo worth it?” Well, if you can put on sweats and let it rip in the comfort of your own…

Beauty and the Beastly Low-Fat Diet – is Eating Low-Fat Aging You?

April 10, 2017
aging

I believe that low-fat living is really the pits for our skin and aging. Here’s why: When fat comes out of foods, sugar is used to replace flavor and moisture. Sugar, especially fructose, creates Advanced Glycation End Products, a factor in aging. It stops collagen from doing its thing. Essential fats protect against UV sun damage. Omega-3 modulates the UVR-induced inflammatory response in the skin. We all know smoking is terrible for your skin, but so is pollution. Fatty acids…

So You’ve Done a Cleanse…Now What?

March 24, 2017
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…
