Safer for Babies

bc6

Here’s what makes these baby products special and safer:

• The ingredients are simple and purposeful: For example, the brand NEW Diaper Cream contains zinc oxide to create a neutral barrier between a wet diaper and delicate baby skin to help prevent diaper rashes which can turn into infections if not properly cared for. The tapioca starch in the diaper cream is really inventive: it absorbs moisture so baby bums stay nice and dry and decreases the likelihood a rash could occur!

• The products are free of common allergens like soy, gluten and nuts! If we don’t feed these things to our babies, we should also make sure they aren’t being absorbed through our body’s largest organ: the skin!

• They’re transparent: Beautycounter formulates their products to be safer and effective and they don’t hide ingredients from you. They stand by their promise to exclude over 1,500 harmful ingredients from their products…. Ingredients that you’ll find all over your house if you’re not reading labels or calling companies… because these ingredients aren’t illegal in America (even though Europe has banned 1,400 of them based on evidence of toxicity). Many of the ingredients are organic, non-gmo, and plant-derived.

SAFER INGREDIENTS. BETTER BEAUTY.
Our Ingredient Selection Process ensures safer and cleaner products that work beautifully. This rigorous process handpicks the best ingredients. What’s not included? Approximately 1,500 questionable or harmful chemicals on our “Never List” that we never use to formulate our products.

Purge Writing

I have a hard time keeping a “journal” it feels like a task or another thing I didn’t do today type of pressure I don’t want or need.

Writing is a beautiful art form, it allows my thoughts, emotions and creativity to flow from my brain out my hand onto paper. It is freeing, cathartic and therapeutic for me.

When I think of “journaling” I don’t write. When I think about releasing the thoughts that are dragging me down I write or purge write. Purging my thoughts proves to be healing for me in that all those negative thoughts and emotions are on paper and I can forget about them or at least they become manageable.

I use to worry about someone else finding my writing books and reading the personal stuff that they contained which stopped the creative, purging process. So, if this is a concern for you use loose leaf paper and burn it when you are finished.

I like keeping my writing now though because I go back weeks, months even years later and see how much I’ve grown personally and in writing style. I surprise myself each time I look back at how advanced my thinking was or how my thinking has develop, what I’ve learned in a short period of time but did not feel any of those things when I was writing those words.

Writing or purge writing has given me confidence and is helping me heal from being broken, disease, situations…. everything to do with LIFE!

If you are wanting to start writing your thoughts to get them out of your head simply start with a pen or pencil and a piece of paper. No goals, no expectations; just write! Write what you don’t want to think about anymore. Doing this will also help get your thoughts straight, organized, best of all it will give perspective to your life, problems and issues.

Purge writing is not something you have to do every day, it’s not another line on your to do list; it’s for purging thoughts and emotions when you are done with them so you can move on.

Writing your thoughts on paper will help you grow as a human being because you won’t stay stuck in a rut, you won’t stay stuck in your purgatory suffering. Writing gives your life the quality of cleansing and purifying your thoughts.

KEEP WRITING UNTIL YOU FEEL POSITIVE, FREE, LIGHTER!

It’s good for mind, body & spirit.

Love, Light & Peace

The journey continues…

I have shared my soul searching journey with you in hopes of giving at least one person hope, knowledge and peace in the uncertain time of feeling lost, unbalanced and confused in the months that follow receiving a diagnosis such as IBD.  If you look back at my posts you will see a pattern, a path, some answers, honesty, hope and a variety of ways to help your body adjust to and heal IBD naturally. That’s right Naturally! That means NO prescription drugs, NO over the counter medicines and NO surgery! Not ever, not for the treatment of IBD!

Healing, Remission & Recovery

I needed this outlet (blog) to share what I have learned, the course my life took to find balance and the search and research I have completed to find myself and heal! The people, ideas, health information, cookbooks and positive attitudes in an uncertain time I found along my way were inspirational, helpful and healing. I will keep all of this with me as I move forward in my ever changing life. I am grateful for the hope, peace and my true authentic self I found while healing, finding remission and now recovery over the past months.

Looking back I see how I’ve slowly healed naturally, with homeopathy, holistic medicine, biofeedback and a change in diet. I have to admit it can be done and it is absolutely amazing to say the least.  Watching the transformation my body has taken in the last twenty two months is beyond what I expected.

There is grace in healing naturally!

How life has changed for me in the last couple of months

A couple of weeks house hunting, secured a rental townhouse, moved out of storage into a one bedroom home, winterized my travel trailer an got it safely to storage. Researched accredited colleges, applied, was interviewed and got accepted. I’m going back to school to become a Homeopathic Practitioner. It’s the power of the mind, manifest what you want. Six months ago it never crossed my mind that I would be at this place in my life.

On my way….

This leads me to my next entrepreneurial and website endeaver. I am beginning a new adventure, an entrepreneurial venture that I am extremely excited about. Now that my colitis and crohns are in remission I am starting my dream career. Woodlands Tree Farm!! It’s seasonal but being outdoors and running my own company has been a dream of mine since I was in my 20’s and the time is finally here! I’m jumping in feet first!

Woodlamds Tree Farm start up is in a couple of weeks, going to get people thinking about Christmas! I will be selling Pine, Spruce and Fir Christmas Trees.

Woodlands Tree Farm on  Twtter and Faceook; website will be launching soon.

Stay tuned for more of my recovery and beyond! You can find me here at http://www.OneGutsyLady.com, on FacebookTwitter & Instagram
