What Is Nutritional Balancing?

I’m sharing again at Traditional Cooking School! Today, I’m introducing a little-known healing protocol called Nutritional Balancing. I have been following my own Nutritional Balancing protocol for about nine months, with great results. The Hubs and the peeps are on board now too, so we are a Nutritional Balancing family!

Of Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men

Of Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men

I heard the bells on Christmas day Their old familiar carols play, And wild and sweet the words repeat Of peace on earth, good will to men. I thought how, as the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along th’unbroken song Of peace on earth, good will to men. And in …

A Week at the Dietz Table

I always want to know what Real Food people eat. I mean, do they ever eat out? Go through a drive-thru? Have dinner and drinks with friends? Go on non-healthy dates???

Homemade & Reusable Baby Wipes

Homemade & Reusable Baby Wipes

I finally took the plunge from our very soft, overpriced brand of t.p. to a more natural brand: Seventh Generation. It has taken some adjusting because it’s just not as soft as what our pampered hineys are accustomed to. First world problems … sigh.

And when I switched to a more natural t.p., I knew it was time to consider baby wipe alternatives.

I Don’t Vaccinate + Why I Don’t Mind If You Do

My husband and I walked out of that workshop speechless. Sure, we were dumbfounded at the junk that’s “approved” to go into vaccines. Of course we were shocked at the number of studies that proved vaccines contributed to health problems in adults and children.
