Top Health Posts of 2013

Top Health Posts of 2013

I’ve loved interacting with you all over the year. And it’s been a very interesting one.

For a fun recap, I thought I would take a stroll down Memory Lane with you all – and share with you the Top Posts of 2013.   In this post, I am going to share the Best Health and DIY Posts and we’ll look at the recipes later.

Actually, these health posts WERE the top posts…guess you all really want to get healthy, eh :)? That’s a good thing. I honestly expected that chocolate posts would be the most popular, but they weren’t.

Good for you!

Before we get to the posts, however, can I say that I simply can’t believe that 2013 is over.

Of course, for my first appointment of the year I wrote “2013” where I was supposed to put the date.

It wouldn’t be a New Year if we didn’t do that, eh :)?

1.  Think Food Doesn’t Affect Behavior? Read and Watch This!

This post went totally viral. If you haven’t read (and watched) it, you need to. Plus, the comments got pretty dicey as folks challenged the author and myself about the details of the post.

Regardless, I am STILL convinced. Food DOES affect behavior.

2.  Which Essential Oils Company is Best?

This series got a lot of attention. And some pretty dicey comments as well.  A scientist from one of the “big guns” in the oils industry took issue with me–and so did some of his “followers.”  Pretty interesting stuff.
The most popular posts in this series were:

- The first post – Which Essential Oils Company is Best?
Announcing the Best Essential Oils Company
Young Living and doTERRA Reviews
- Are Multi-Level Company Oils Worth it?

3.  Are Essential Oils a Scam?

This is where the whole essential oils thing started for me.  I thought they were a total scam and found out that they weren’t.  This post is a review of Young Living’s Thieves Oil, but if you read the above series, you know that I am not recommending them any more.  No offense to any of my YL rep readers, OK?  I hope we can still be friends :).
