Video Post: How to Use a Neti Pot

Neti Pots have been used for thousands of years and have been shown to be beneficial for many with nasal blockage. According to Wikipedia: “In published studies, “daily hypertonic saline nasal irrigation improves sinus-related quality of life, decreases symptoms, and decreases medication use in patients with frequent sinusitis”,[2] and irrigation is recommended as an adjunctive treatment for chronic sinonasal symptoms.[3][4]

There are different types of neti pots, some are ceramic and stainless steel. For example, here is what a stainless steel neti pot looks like:

We just received a full order of these pots and you’re more than welcome to try them out for yourself.  Click here to find the link on our site.

The main question people ask all the time – how do you use a neti pot? What kind of salt do I use? How do I tilt my head?

Reasons Why a Dehydrator is a Good Idea

Usually during winter people use more root vegetables and if you canned during the spring you would enjoy a fresh summer peach or thaw a frozen vegetable. This is where dehydrators make an excellent addition towards food preservation.

Reasons to dehydrate food:

1. Save money! Don’t throw away/waste vegetables when you can dehydrate them for so many uses. Make your own soup stock in pre-measured containers.

2. Forget about candy, it’s easy to make  fruit leathers! With all the chemicals in the stuff that passes as fruit, you’re much better off saving your health and your money.

3. Extend the vegetables and fruits from your backyard garden. Drying the items you grow in your garden is economical and really lessens the amount of money spent on spices alone!

4. Make edible gifts! Nothing says I care like a personalized present. Make soup base mixes, dried flowers, trail mix etc. Imagine how nice it would be to receive a bag of edible goodies wrapped with a bow during the holidays.

5. Lower your medical costs by eating healthy. This way you are more likely to eat the food you have instead of spending money on tempting empty calorie items.

This way you know what is in your food, how it was made and all according to your tastes!

Earthing – what is it?

If you’ve see our booth before at trade shows we often have Earthing products with us. What is Earthing? In this video below David Wolfe explains it best and it’s really amazing how as a culture, North Americans have lost touch with the earth and have built so many barriers to allow for no contact. Ever wonder why you feel fantastic when you go away and dig your toes into a beach? Or when you come out incredibly refreshed after swimming in the ocean? It’s all a matter of connecting back and feeling in tune.

After watching that video, it’s so clear how important grounding is and how easy it can be with the versatile products available. Also, there’s the Earthing book by By Clinton Ober, Stephen T. Sinatra, Martin Zucker, which explains scientific research is discovering the details as to why people feel significantly better when they connect with these omnipresent energy fields.

Grounding can be done through:
Mouse pad
Bed pad
Sleeping bag
Bands
Grounding mats
Car seat pads
Flip flops
Etc.
