Health & Wellness
The story of how one man discovered the healing properties of water sounds like the makings of a medical thriller. It even has a mysterious hero – Dr. Batman, MD.
Every January we like to focus on getting a strong foundation for our health to set the tone for the entire year. Making resolutions is easy, but following through with them is the challenge.
Aloha Kakou. What a beautiful summer we are having in Hawaii Nei. Even with it being a little warmer than usual this summer, there’s no place I’d rather be.
My family knew I was that boy from a very young age. Jumping from couch to couch. Digging in the dirt. Running around the yard with our dogs. I was that boy who just could not stay still! I loved the feeling of roaming free in the great outdoors. In fact, I still do!
In honor of March being National Nutrition Month, we decided to seek out advice from one of our favorite Nutritionists, Carmela Wolf! Carmela is the Wellness manager at Down to Earth. She’s known for her vibrant, friendly personality, along with her wealth of health information. To share Carmela’s knowledge, we’ve created a “Wellness Wednesdays” series!
You might be at a point in the year when you’re struggling to keep the new year’s health resolutions you made and you’re falling back to old habits. Old habits die hard, but they don’t have to in your case! Here’s a list of some of the most common barriers to staying healthy and how to overcome them
If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it again, the holidays are crazy! Whether you’re running around picking up presents, visiting relatives, or going on vacation, it can get overwhelming.
Honey is such a versatile product. Not only is it nutritious, honey also builds your immune system, energizes you, beautifies you, treats wounds, and it can improve your scalp and be a great moisturizer. If you want to get the best out of your honey make sure it’s raw.
Reflecting on American Heart Month this February, the first thing that came to mind was my parents. They take pretty good care of themselves, but they could definitely do better. (Actually so could I!) We've talked in the past about what they could do food-wise to help prevent anything medically serious from happening. As much as they love me, I can see why it's difficult to heed their bossy daughter. I'm the one who gets told what to do, not the other way around. They've been relatively healthy all their lives without any serious hiccups so why should they listen to me? I used to send them dozens and dozens of links and recipes to see if just one more article could change their minds. As many people can probably attest to, there's only so far you can push others toward doing something that they're not familiar with or even mildly interested in.
The weather has cooled down – maybe just a little bit here – and the holidays are just around the corner. We love making our own crafts for the holidays and putting them all around the house. You can get super creative and crafty with just a couple things.
