RECOMMENDED RESOURCES

The following is a mix of companies, products, ministries, and resources that have been instrumental in either my own or my family’s health.

Some of these I have a financial partnership with and others I do not.  I promise you I am always upfront and honest in my representation of their qualities regardless.  That’s how it should be.

Even when you contact someone whom I have recommended and you just mention that you heard about them from me, that means a great deal because they know how much I’ve been blessed.

Come back as I will update this list regularly.

SUPPLEMENTS AND HEALTHY LIVING

ESSENTIAL OILS

Native American Nutritionals and Rocky Mountain Oils

I used to think that Essential Oils were a scam.  Then I tried them and I was hooked.

Initially I signed up with Young Living and then doTERRA (2 of the bigger direct sales oils companies), but I really wanted to make sure I was getting the most “bang for my buck” so I started investigating the essential oils industry and the many companies involved.

I ended up recommending Native American Nutritionals and their affiliated company, Rocky Mountain Oils (they carry the same oils but kept the companies separate for business reasons).

You can read the whole series about my search for “The Best” Essential Oils Company” here, or just ahead to see why I recommend Native American Nutritionals here.

IHERB

Iherb is one of my favorite online supplement and healthy living retailers.  Get $10 off your order of $40 or more or $5 off your order less than $40 with Referral Code RUR466.

LUCKY VITAMIN

Lucky Vitamin is another great online retailer that has superb pricing for supplements and healthy living products.

WHOLE APPROACH

Very thorough and informative website for those suffering from candida.  The recipe section is amazing and they have a wealth of great products to assist in the fight against candida.  Their moderator, Tari-lee Cornish is quite an impressive source of information on numerous health issues.

LIFE-ENTHUSIAST CO-OP

Martin Pytela has been a huge source of encouragement and information to me at various stages of the issues facing me and my family.

I can particularly endorse the following products:

1.  Strata Flora – a whole foods based probiotic.  This product seems expensive up front, but you use it according to your needs.  I have had one bottle last over 3 months.  It has an amazing cleansing effect and seems to generate weight loss by removing toxins from your digestive tract

2. Topically Every Pain- This has worked wonders on certain injuries that I have had.  Once I had a bad muscular injury in my back.  When I was having trouble sleeping or pain during the day, I would just spray this on and with seconds, my pain was gone.

3. Chlorella – a great source of dietary iodine

4. Spirulina – another great source of dietary iodine

6. Magnesium Crystals – Wonderful for adding magnesium to your system without digestive upset.  Add 1/4 cup to bath water or 1/8 cup or so to a foot soak.  Good for relaxing just before bed.

COUNTRY LIFE NATURAL FOODS

Our family has been purchasing from Country Life Natural Foods for over 9 years.  They have free door-to-door delivery for orders on their truck delivery line that exceed $400-$500 (depending on the location) and you will find their prices and service hard to beat.

When we lived in Oklahoma we had large 200+ pound orders delivered via UPS and shared the orders with other local health-oriented families.  Even though we had to pay for shipping (they now have a truck that delivers to Oklahoma) it was still cheaper than going to our local health food store.

Now we have a co-op out of our home that bring great tasting, high quality and affordable food to our door every four weeks.  If you live close enough you are welcome to Contact Me for more details!

You can see the many offerings that Country Life has at www.clnf.org.

REAL FOOD RESOURCES

COOKWARE

I get asked regularly what kind of cookware I use, but I have never had a great answer besides the pressure cookers and the slow cooker that I LOVE.

Now, I do.  Ceramcor.  I had my eye on this cookware ever since I did a giveaway for them, and now I have my very own set.

This cookware is amazing.  Safe, beautiful, durable, and makes food taste great.

If you want to keep toxins out of your kitchen, this Xtrema cookware is one of the best places to start.  WHOLE NEW MOM Readers can get 10% off too – your discount code is available by clicking here.

EXCALIBUR DEHYDRATORS

This dehydrator is one of my most treasured kitchen tools.

We use it every week, if not more.  From drying and soaking nuts and seeds, to making homemade fruit leather, to making enzyme-rich flax crackers and raw cookies, to drying excess produce, this is quite the workhorse.  We went with the 9-tray model, with the Paraflexx (TM) sheets (for making fruit leathers and other “goopy” recipes like sun dried tomatoes) and I wouldn’t recommend anything different.  Even if you have a smaller family, it is great to have the option to get a lot done in little time.

Check my BEST PRICE ON EXCALIBUR DEHYDRATORS page for the best deal you can get on these great machines.

BERKEY WATER FILTERS

I consider water filtration to be one of the first things that every health-conscious family should do. There are so many contaminants in tap water, and we drink (or should drink) so much of it every day that it is crucial to make sure you are getting the best possible water. I’ve done a lot of research and changed my mind over the years, but I have settled now on the Berkey system for my family.  I like them so much that I have become a dealer.

If you are interested getting high quality clean water for your family, contact me at wholenewmom {at} gmail {dot} com to choose the best filter for your home and to order your filter.  Get manufacturers warranty by going through an authorized dealer (you get no warranty from some sellers) and great pricing.  They have shower filters too so you can keep the chlorine off of your skin.

VITAMIX

The Vitamix is just one of the appliances in my kitchen that I consider to be practically indispensable.  My husband encouraged me to get one for YEARS until I finally gave in (I was worried about how expensive they were).  Now I wished I’d listened to him right away.  We use ours multiple times a day and it is one of the biggest money-savers in our home. I use mine to make Easiest Almond Milk, Easiest Coconut Milk, Homemade Nut and Seed Butters, Homemade Coconut Butter, Powdered Sugar Substitute, Homemade Rice Milk, and more.

By going through my link you can save $25-$35 by getting FREE SHIPPING on your Vitamix.  You can order by phone at 1 800 848 2649 ext 2308 and use CODE 06-005927 – or use the same Savings Code for ordering online.

FOOD STORAGE

Thrive Life

I’ve looked into several companies and methods of storing food including dehydrating, canning, and freezing, and now freeze drying.  I think they all have their place, but Thrive Life has top quality products at a reasonable price (plus they have a bunch of non GMO and gluten-free products as well and that’s important to me.  You can get 20-30% off retail by shopping through my link and I offer the following to my readers:

1.  If you set up a “Q” (a regular shipment) of $100 or more OR
2.  You order $400 or more at any time

Email me at wholenewmom {at} gmail {dot} com to get 10% of your order credited towards a future order.

OTHER STUFF

LILLA ROSE

Lilla Rose

 

 

 

 

They’re pretty (which is good for your emotional health) but these clips also help you have healthier hair since they go in and out easily without ripping strands of hair out.  Didn’t think I would but now I really do.  Read my review on Lilla Rose Flexi Clips to see what I used to think and why I now LOVE these clips.

DANSKO

~ These are just about the only shoes that I wear, with the exception of my New Balance workout shoes and occasional boots.  Inside and out.  Since they are handmade, their sizes vary a bit, but it is a small frustration for good quality shoes.  My friend in Chicago who introduced them to me said this:  “You could drop an atomic bomb on these things and they would still hold up.”  Not quite, but close.

There is also an online outlet for these shoes, but primarily you will only find discontinued styles there.  If you are really lucky, you can check out the racks at Marshall’s or Nordstrom Rack, but this takes a lot of patience.

    have you ever tried the TransDermal Silver product from Life Enthusiast? I am ordering the strata flora and get free shipping if I spend a little more money so I am trying to figure out what else to get. I have heard collodial (SPELLING?) silver is great as an alternative to anti-biotics but I have never tried it.

    • I’ve never tried that. I have used the Topically Every Pain (a friend swears by it) and the Flu Stop. Their spirulina is a good product as well.

  2. Hello

    I am a patient of Teresa Vernon, I will start the protocol next week. I am already detoxing using a method to fix my copper toxicity and overmethylation, but became hypoglycemic in the process. did you run into this yourself?

    Thanks,

    Nina

    • I was hypoglycemic when I started. It’s gone now. Sorry -I can’t help.

    • Hi, my name is Deanna and I’ve been taking HFI, alpha energy and pxp forte and they help me detox WONDERFULLY! I was dehydrated for so long it’s been years. I spent almost twenty thousand dollars in Meyers cocktails and homeopathic treatments without results. Now, I can honestly say I’m improving! Let me back up a bit. I was diagnosed with systemic lupus in 1988 and told I’d probably live only 6 months, MAYBE 2 years. Well, after multiple surgeries and trying literally EVERYTHING I’ve found that this combination works along with essential oils for the pain. The HFI is dehydrated plants and has over 70 minerals and 50 trace minerals and the alpha energy oxygenates my water and alkalizes everything I drink, even COFFEE! The rice has a lot of energy in it called mitochondria and it helps your cells regenerate into good cells. So I hope this helps you. I use immune strength essential oil along with several others diffused at bedtime. I hope this helps you to gain a healthy life:)

      • Deanna, what company are you buying these from? And what is HFI? And what is the rice you te alk about? Where do you buy this rice? Thanks!

      • Deanna where are you buying HFI, alpha energy and pxp forte? I would like to look into them.
