Eat the Rainbow Part I : Gorgeous Greens!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 29, 2018 7:00 am

 
Even if we struggle to stick to it all the time, most of us have a pretty good idea how to eat healthily.  Fruit, vegetables = good. Too much sugar, salt and fat = bad. Yep. We can remember that.  

Eating your greens really is good for you.
Green is Good!

But when you’re choosing what to buy at the grocery store, bear in mind that fresh produce in different colors doesn’t just look good in the fruit bowl – it’s great for your health as well!

We take a look at why we tell our kids to eat their greens and why our parents and their parents before them, told us the same thing!

Why Is No-Poo a No-Go?  

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 3, 2018 12:00 pm

 
Now don’t get us wrong, we’re often in favor of ditching the chemicals and trying out a natural alternative.  Dropping the foaming agent SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and potentially dangerous parabens in regular shampoo might be worth a try, but what do you replace them with?  

Is your shampoo good for you?
Co-Wash For Curlies

Some people go down the co-washing route; skipping the shampoo altogether and washing their hair using conditioner.  It can have spectacular results on certain hair types (curlies blessed with coarse, thick hair often love it), but it’s definitely not for everyone.

Soda and Silicones

So how about washing your hair with baking soda?  It’s not exactly new…your grandmother might well have tried it!  The

Detox Your Veggies!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 5, 2018 12:00 pm

 
We all know that we need to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables to stay healthy.  Although most types of frozen, canned and dried produce count towards your daily total, nothing beats the taste of fresh, seasonal fruit and veggies.

How clean are your vegetables?
What’s On Our Veggies?  

But have you wondered about how those lovely tomatoes, salad leaves and bell peppers are produced?  If you buy organic or grow your own, then you can skip this. However, if – like so many of us – you tend to grab what’s on offer or looks great in the store display or farmer’s market, then read on.  

Did you know that much of the deliciously tempting produce on offer

Hair’s Some Good News About Your Water Ionizer!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 3, 2018 7:00 am

 
Did you know that your hair is acidic?  True story. Whether it’s short, curly, bedhead or a glossy mane: hair has a pH range of around 4 – 5.  

Fed up of fighting your hair?
Natural Balance and Bad Hair Days

When a shampoo is advertised as being “pH balanced,” it means that it has a similar pH to your hair.  Great right? That means that you’re not throwing out the natural balance of your crowning glory with nasty ol’ chemical shampoos?

Maybe not, but what about your water?  Most tap water sits between a neutral pH of around 7 and a more alkaline 8.5.  Rinsing your hair with water that isn’t pH balanced – even if your shampoo

Turbo Charge Your Spring Clean

In a recent blog, we looked at the dangers of using chemical cleaners around the home and how Turbo water from your water ionizer can do the job just as well, without any toxic fumes.  

Yep. It’s that time of year again.
What Kind of Spring-Cleaner Are You?  

Many people like to carry out a spring clean at this time of year.  For some, it’s little more than bundling away winter coats and shoes; for others, it means systematically going through each room, carrying out a deep clean and throwing out or recycling whatever isn’t nailed down (Hi, Mom!).

Official: Housework Might Be Harming Your Health

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 27, 2018 7:00 am

 
“Housework?  It can’t kill you, but why take the risk?” goes the fridge magnet/meme/Birthday card for your sister.  

But within that little lol, is a grain of truth.  Research just published in the American Thoracic Society’s Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine has found that using chemical-laden cleaning products every day has a detrimental effect on lung health.  If you use cleaning sprays regularly, then the impact can be the equivalent of smoking a full pack of cigarettes every day.  

Breaking News:  Cleaning really is bad for your health.
The Dangers of Chemical Cleaners

The research is pretty thorough, with scientists following 6000 test subjects over a 20-year period.  The findings observe that the chemicals inhaled from

Take Good Care of Your Teeth

As well as a good brushing and flossing routine, most of us know how to take care of our teeth – trips to the dentist, changing our toothbrush regularly and not eating and drinking too many sugary things.

Sparkling Water Harms Tooth Enamel?

But drinking sparkling water must be okay, right?  Not so, according to recent comments by Dr. Edmond R. Hewlett, spokesperson for the American Dental Association.

Those bubbles are created by adding carbon dioxide.  It’s not sugary, but it is acidic, and it’s the acid that can …

2 Things I Hate About My Water Ionizer

Posted by: Rhona Reid On July 18, 2017 7:00 am

 
Love isn’t – despite hundreds of songs and films suggesting otherwise – unconditional.  The flip side of real-life love is hate, a strong word, but who hasn’t been tempted to use it every now and again?  You can love someone, but still hate the fact that they stack the dishes in the sink instead of straight into the dishwasher.  You can adore your soulmate beyond reason, but still hate their “signature” risotto.

Love you, hate this.

So yes, love and hate can co-exist in an everyday way, without drama.  And it’s against this backdrop that I can breathe a sigh of relief and finally get it out there.

There are 2 things that I (used to) hate about my …
