Swine Flu!!! It's all over the news and for good reason! I have listed some strageties and precautions for you to start using - they are listed below. Take a look....... :-)

Wanted to share a few strategies that you can employ to reduce your risk of this serious illness.

First, unless it is necessary for you to be out, stay home. Carefully evaluate the risk of ileness for both you and your family.

Second, drink a minimum of 2 quarts of water daily. Moist mucus membranes are less likely than dry mucous membranes to allow germs to "set up housekeeping".

Third, wash your hands to minimize spread of infection.

Fourth, disinfect house hot spots like doorknobs, bathrooms, light switches, etc. Shaklee's Basic G is a complete household germicide and helps kills bacteria.

Fifth, supplements that can help: Garlic, Elderberry, Echinacea, Goldenseal, Astragalus

I pray that you and your loved ones are safe.

Bio - a little about me

Yayy!! I created a blog! I'm headed where the masses are headed - into cyberworld! I also created a facebook account this evening. My kids were wondering why? Ok, I'm gonna be 43 yrs old this summer. Why should young folks be the only ones having fun? ;-)

God has given me a passion for health & wellness and I want to share what I've learned and am learning with others especially the Body of Christ. I have a desire to see God's people live in health and prosper not just financially but physically, emotionally as well as spiritually. Holistic health - body, soul and spirit.

Like I said, I'll be 43 yrs old - or should I say young? - this summer in July. I've been married almost 20 yrs (yayy!). My husband is my best friend and the love of my life! I have five kids ages: 21, 18, 15, 13, 12. I had my first child when I was 21 yrs old - the same as my oldest daughter - yikes!

I started studying and learning about herbs about 10 years ago in search of answers to bleeding gums and other health ailments that I couldn't get relief from even with dr's prescriptions. As I said, I've been studying on my own and about a year ago, I received a certification from The School of Natural Healing as a Family Herbalist. The Lord has lead me on a fantastic journey even though there have been struggles along the way.

My blog comes out of a desire to possibly help someone with a question they may have or just general herbal/health information.

More info coming soon!
