I’ve spent far too much time trying to figure out ways to handle severe menstrual cramps without painkillers. And when I say severe cramps, I’m talking about the cramps that are worse than labor contractions. Unfortunately, the epidural is not available to women during their time of the month. I’m hoping that this little list […]
I suffer from Hashimotos AND Grave’s Disease. My thyroid was destroyed via radioactive iodine and since then, I’ve had a hard time keeping it under control. On top of that, I also struggle with issues with my pituitary gland and prolactin levels. Add in my endometriosis and ovarian cysts to the mix and that is […]

I am so glad I did.
This is the time of the year that almost everyone tries to become healthier. It’s great to set New Year’s health resolutions. I’m removing toxins from my home as one of mine.
