The need for organic skin care is essential to properly take care of your body without exposing yourself to unnecessary and harmful toxins. However, many of us don’t even know we are being poisoned or what organic skin care actually entails. Audrey Hepburn once said “For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” These beauty tips should be taken to heart, as beauty is not the things we cover ourselves with, but with the light that shines outwardly from

5 Proven Health Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Vinegar is French for sour wine.  Pretty aptly named don’t you think?  Apple cider vinegar, which I guess could be considered sour apple wine, is one of those things I put in the MacGyver category of products.  Along with baking soda and coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, like MacGyver, does so much with so little.  So next time you have to keep a train from derailing, diffuse a bomb, or perhaps become stranded in France, be sure to have these three little miracle products on hand. So what is this stuff? Apple cider vinegar is a simple concoction of crushed apples

In fact, the average male over age 40 has a 1-2% decrease in testosterone levels.  That’s life.  What isn’t life, is thinking that there’s nothing you can do about it.  Testosterone is a hormone, and a pretty important one, as are all hormones.  When testosterone levels are low, men can experience decreased sex drive, decreased bone density, muscle loss, increased body fat, hair loss, fatigue, and depression. A low level of testosterone is considered anything below 300 nanograms per deciliter (ng/dL), as

10 Health Benefits to Green Powder Drinks

no comment

When it comes to considering our overall health, we often get caught up only considering macronutrients (proteins, carbs, and fats).  However, micronutrients also play a crucial role in our health and probably a much bigger role than many people suspect.  There are many ways in which these micronutrients can be acquired but one efficient way is through the consumption of fruits and vegetables.  Not everyone will choose to incorporate these foods into their diet and this is where green powder drinks can serve a purpose.  These drinks are packed with nutrition and can be just what you need to get

How 10 Minutes of Meditation Can Greatly Benefit You

1 comment

Meditation? Not your forte?  Not even just 10 simple minutes of meditation? Is improving quality of life and not dying early your forte?  I thought it might be, so let’s chat about meditation. All I am asking for is 10 minutes here. Speaking of minutes, there are approximately 1,440 minutes in a day, 10,080 in a week, over 40,000 in a month, and 525,600 in a year.  Now that’s a lot of time!  Or at least it sounds that way. However, our reality (since perception is reality) seems that from the moment we wake up, to the time we lay
