Dr. Alan Christianson and the Adrenal Reset Diet

What a busy busy week! Of course, it was Christmas, but it pretty much blew right past us.

Does “Xmas” take Christ Out of Christmas?

Does Xmas take the Christ out of Christmas? Find out how I offended a reader and what my response was. You'll also learn about the Early Church and get a little bit of algebra too :). Christ, Christmas, algebra and history -- all in one :).

The Xmas vs Christmas Debate. Why am I addressing this, you wonder? As a blogger who sometimes addresses controversial issues like vaccines and autism, essential oils, the FDA raiding raw milk farms, the FDA seeking to stop the sale of supplements, and the government shutting down probiotics companies, and even the dangers of stevia, it's to be expected that I would receive some "tense" ...Read The Full Post

Native American Nutritionals Christmas Tree Blend

We've had some big things going on this past week--some good and some bad--that I've barely been able to breathe. And we haven't done much of anything for Christmas, which is hard for me emotionally. We're trying to get the tree up today and did go to an Open House this week for a bit, but that's about it so far. Typically, I don't do much "crazy busy" Christmas stuff anyways, so in a ...Read The Full Post
