The Perfect Detox Bath

Detox Bath, Herx, Lyme Disease
A detox bath is one of the easiest ways to pull toxins from your body and to help you feel better when you're sick.

Detox baths are especially helpful for getting through a Herxheimer which is when your body has an overload of dead bacteria and toxins from the onslaught of Lyme disease and co-infections.

Quite Honestly, I Hate Lyme Disease

It's Sunday night, there's a full Hunter's Moon tonight and quite honestly I'm more than just a bit overwhelmed!

I've felt sluggish and tired all week, my kids are complaining of a return of symptoms and everyone has been irritable and argumentative. My little guy has had so much pain this weekend and tonight he hurt so badly that we had to give him Motrin and soak him in an Epsom salt bath.

It's so heartbreaking to see your child suffer in pain.

It's Fall But You're Not Out of the Woods Yet

The gorgeous robust colors of fall and brisk cool weather make outdoor activities like hiking and nature walks ever so enticing.

With the changing colors on the leaves it's hard to stay indoors.

I just love fall and find the beauty irresistible.

While the weather is fabulous, most people don't realize that they're still at risk for getting tick-borne infections.

It's true, ticks are still out and they're still looking for a blood meal, in fact, ticks are out all year long.

Do You Value Your Job as a Homeschool Mom?

It's the beginning of a new homeschool year for us and we're already in the full swing of things.

Each new year, we start off slowly and really try to enjoy it.

On the first day, we pull out all the school books and supplies and sit together taking in all the sights and smells of our new things.

Come on now, you know you love the smell of new books, I sure do.

We try to enjoy our first week as much as possible and then proceed to do only a few subjects a day. By the second week, the kids are completing each subject and we continue to tweak our schedule.
