It’s my passion to help people decipher the controversial health info out there and make decisions that speak to their needs. Throughout my own healing process, there were so many alternative health professionals that I looked up to and trusted to guide me through my process. My goal is to pay it forward and be that same force for other people in their journey to health. It’s my mission to be approach health information with an open mind, unswayed by my personal bias, and give you real, trusted information you can feel good about applying. This approach is what allowed me to heal myself and can help you to do the same.
One of the more controversial topics I’ve kept my eye on over the years is CBD and medical marijuana. It’s been a hot topic in health and in politics for so long. It finally feels like some we’re making progress towards a true sense of understanding it rather than demonizing it with cultural assumptions, though I can understand why it has gotten its reputation. Regardless of where you sit on the legalization debate, when it comes to CBD, there are some really important things everyone should be open to understanding. I feel that the health benefits of CBD oil is a really important matter to share with my readers.

Briefly steep 2 green, black or chamomile tea bags in hot water for less than a minute. Then remove the tea bags from the water, and chill in a small bowl in the refrigerator. Once chilled, place 1 bag over each closed eyelid. Leave on your lids for 5 to 15 minutes. Watch this video if you’d like to see me explain this.
In a small saucepan on low heat, warm 1 Tablespoon coconut oil until liquid. Remove from heat and add 4 fresh or frozen red raspberries. Mash berries and blend until smooth. Place in a small glass container and refrigerate until firm. Use clean fingers or a lipgloss brush to smooth over lips. Make this fresh every few days.
Doing inverted postures before pictures, interviews and meetings can improve circulation and help give your face some extra lift and vitality. You can do “downward dog” yoga pose by getting on the floor on hands and knees and then straighten your legs. Or simply bend forward and reach towards your toes. Stay in one of these positions as long as you feel comfortable, for about 1 to 5 minutes. If you have physical limitations such as injuries or back pain, check with your healthcare provider about how you can modify this posture. Here are 7 different poses you can do for glowing skin.

Sometimes, making the trek all the way to the gym for a workout is a challenging exercise in and of itself. Those lazy feels just take over, and the mere thought of getting up out of your chair or your bed sounds like a whole lot of unnecessary effort for not a lot of payoff. But, as much as you’d like it to, your core isn’t going to strengthen itself. Luckily, there are lots of ab exercises you can do in a chair.
Yes, you read that correctly. You can totally sit and be fit, and it’s literally the perfect solution to make all of your lazy fitness dreams come true.
Plus, since your abs are smaller than other muscles in your body, they actually benefit a lot from engaging in daily strengthening exercises, which also means you don’t typically need to take a rest day in between these types of workouts (unlike leg day, which renders my body virtually useless a week after the fact).
So, for all my fellow lazy peeps out there, here are five ab exercises you can do with your booty parked right in your chair. Because, let’s face it, standing is just overrated sometimes.

Author and alternative health practitioner Ann Boroch has died.
The Los Angeles County coroner’s department confirmed to us on 8 August 2017 that Boroch’s cause of death a week before was suicide by hanging. The department’s report identified her by her first name, Tami.
Boroch’s Facebook page announced her death on 4 August 2017, and the post was cross-linked to her Twitter account. A second Twitter post carried an additional message while also linking to her Facebook page:
Hi everyone! My name is Lisa and I am Ann’s cousin. I am sorry to say this is not a hoax or a joke. Thank you all…
However, the Facebook page was taken down completely not long after that. Some web sites reporting on Boroch’s death included a screen capture of what was purportedly the original post:
