Omega-3 fatty acids are a good kind of fat. They’re good for both you and your baby during pregnancy. There are three main kinds: (Their names are really long, so it’s OK to just use the letters.)
Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). This kind can’t be produced by your body. You have to get it through foods, like walnuts and soybeans.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). This kind helps your baby’s brain and eyes develop in the womb. Your body makes it on its own, but the best way to get it is through food or a supplement. A supplement is a product you take to make up for certain nutrients that you don’t get enough of in the foods you eat. For example, you can take a DHA supplement.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Like DHA, your body also makes this kind, but it’s best to get it through food or a supplement.
Your skin absorbs what it comes in contact with – so be careful. Some of the toxic ingredients that you might find in your cosmetics include lead, mercury, triclosan, formaldehyde and 1,4-dioxane. It is worth the time to research the brand you are using!
If you are a parent of an elementary school child, chances are that “wipes” are on your back-to-school list. But that is INSANE! Check the back of the canister – WARNING: HARMFUL TO HUMANS! Seriously? I’m pretty sure my 7 & 9 year olds are human (most of the time at least)….I refuse to send this dangerous product to school with them – for their safety AND the other kids in the class. Personally, I will give my kids’ teachers an all-natural product that is EPA approved as a disinfectant. It’ll still do the job, but totally safe!
Are your children being used as lab rats in a giant experiment?
It is worth 8 minutes of your time to watch this!
We need to be PROACTIVE when it comes to our kids’ health and safety. There are toxic chemicals being used every day in classrooms – as parents we need to create the change to better/safer non-toxic cleaners! At the start of every school year, I buy green cleaners for my kids’ teachers – I have found the best ones! (EPA approved to kill 99.9% of all germs, including H1N1!)
Unfortunately, kids get lice…it’s horrible! But worse than the lice themselves is the TREATMENT! One of the common treatments is lice shampoo containing LINDANE (I encourage you to google on “dangers of lindane” before using this product!) The least side affects are skin rash and irritation. Even worse is that lindane has been linked to neurological damage causing seizures and some believe it is responsible for the increase in leukemia cases! The most scary fact is that lindane has been banned for use in agricultural situations, yet it is still being used as a treatment on kids!!! UGH! There IS a better way! Use a shampoo that contains all-natural TEA TREE OIL – this not only kills lice, but it deters them in the first place! I have been using an all-natural shampoo containing tea tree oil for my kids for years and I love it! (And my kids have NEVER had lice I am very relieved to say!)
There are many parents (moms and dads) that would LOVE to be able to be home more for their kids. But the harsh reality is that most families need two incomes to make end meet. I am thrilled to be able to help others do what I’m doing….revolving their work around their life rather then the other way around. Being able to help out at your kids’ Halloween party at school or be home when they get off the bus or even make sometime for YOURSELF to get to the gym or whatever else makes you feel good….this is priceless.
