Pharmaceuticals In Your Water

This is an issue that it seems is finally getting more attention in the mainstream media, but it is very true this is something that we should have been concerned about for a very long time already. Personally I take a bit of bentonite clay first thing every morning as it is good at removing unwanted chemicals and toxins from our bodies, but that doesn’t mean I like the idea of them being there in the first place. I currently have a water filter, but I am still uncertain as to whether any of the filters on the market currently really remove the pharmaceuticals or not. If anyone knows of any please let me know. This is a good article that sums up the whole history of how this has happened as well as what you can do about it to protect your own health.

Orgasmic Childbirth

Wow! I have read about women who have had orgasms during childbirth but had a hard time imagining it really happening. This woman looks so happy and cozy, purring and really getting into her labor. It is interesting to hear also that about 21% of women actually do have orgasms during childbirth ...

Occupy Student Debt – Refuse to Pay

Occupy Student Debt – Refuse to Pay

I am very excited to see this movement. There is so much student debt in the US at the moment that even if a fraction of the students came together to stop paying their student debt it would have a huge effect on the economy. Those in debt actually have a huge power here and they are finally wising ...

Coconut Water Kefir Tips and Benefits

Coconut Water Kefir Tips and Benefits

I have been experimenting with various ways to make coconut water kefir. My first step was to rehydrate some water kefir grains I had been given by a local fermentation fan last year and get them bubbling.
