March 7, 2014 | NaturalLiving | A.McCarthy
Ingredients found in conventional toothpastes -- including sodium fluoride, synthetic dyes derived from petroleum or coal tar, sodium hydroxide (also known as lye or caustic soda), sodium lauryl sulfate, titanium dioxide, artificial sweeteners, and triclosan -- might make us think twice about the products we employ for the sake of our teeth. Of course, we’re not actively swallowing the stuff, but it’s unavoidable that a bit will slink down the gullet from time to time. And given that most of us brush our teeth over 700 times a year, there’s no shortage of opportunity to ingest ingredients better left in the lab.

Pineapple has been used for centuries to reduce pain and inflammation. It turns out that an enzyme found in pineapples called bromelain does, in fact, have scientifically proven medicinal benefits.

An even more potent anti-inflammatory is ginger whose analgesic properties have been proven stronger than ibuprofen. Combine the two in this smoothie recipe and you have deliciously balanced beverage at any time of the day.

March 5, 2014 | Toxins | M.Chan
As a society, we just can't seem to shake our excessive use for disposable cups in exchange for our convenience. If you use your own glass cup or mug, you’re as safe as the water you drink. Take that same drink from a foam cup or plastic cup and it is a very different story. Different variations of polyethylene and paraffin line almost every disposable cup on the market. These linings, especially among low quality cups can indeed melt and get into your digestive tract leading to gastrointestinal disorders and other health issues.
