Depression is a Tool

Posted in Inspiration on August 14th, 2014 by Janet Hailstone — Be the first to comment!

It always makes me sad when people kill themselves. Recently Robin Williams died and I didn’t know that he had such severe depression. I wish that all the people out there going through deeply sad times could find the answers they seek in order to live a happy life. Robin Williams did a lot to make people happy with his fun and zany humor to make us all laugh. Laughter is definitely a way to feel better. I wish that he would have known that there is a way to have joy that is as great as your pain. Read more…

The hacking cough, the end of the cold that drags on, the tickle in the throat, the dryness and soreness – these are all symptoms that would merit a reach for a cough drop. I used to reach for Fisherman’s Friend, 4-hour cough suppressant, Ricola or other cough drops to get me through that rough time. then I realized the cause and the cure. Read more…

Nine Natural Secrets to Better Sleep

Posted in Healing Diet, Inspiration, Natural Immunity, Weight Loss on May 24th, 2013 by Janet Hailstone — 1 Comment so far

Many people drag through the day, make mistakes, and feel unhappy or lethargic when they don’t get a good night’s sleep. Sleeping properly is a really important aspect of life that you shouldn’t ignore or neglect.  It can make a big difference in helping you to feel terrific when you wake up and are able to face your day with the best energy possible.

Studies show that people who don’t get enough sleep have a harder time resisting the temptations to eat fattening foods. Getting enough sleep helps you to have better metabolism and be more able to stick to your weight loss goals. It also helps your immune system and gives your body the ability to fight things off.

I like to be rested so I can do well at my job.  I know how wiped out I can be to face my day if I don’t take care of myself. There are nine things that I’ve found to be very helpful. Try them and see if you can also get the best night’s sleep possible. Read more…

No, Don’t Kill Iris!

Posted in Inspiration on December 31st, 2012 by Janet Hailstone — Be the first to comment!

Our family had an unusually memorable Thanksgiving this year. We actually had a live turkey in our yard and not turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. I asked the family what everyone wanted to contribute to the dinner. My son wanted to do the turkey, he’s the one in our family that has come to like animal products and regular American diet. He works out a lot and looks pretty buff. He is in the Army National Guard can run a mile or two in six minutes, shoot guns, and has been to Iraq for a tour of duty. My daughter wanted to do the mashed potatoes and gravy. She often complains that there is never enough mashed potatoes. So, I let them do that, and I did the rest of the dinner, for which I will include the yummy recipes that everyone liked in a later post.

Anyway, they arrived Tuesday night before Thanksgiving with a huge 50# turkey that was in a dog kennel, and they were calling her Iris. They wanted to let it out in the house, but I said no. They took it out into the front yard in the Read more…

Lentil-Barley Vegetable Soup in 5-Minutes

Posted in Bargain Beans, Healing Diet, Natural Immunity, Recipes, Weight Loss on November 14th, 2012 by Janet Hailstone — Be the first to comment!

lentil-barley vegetable soupThis is a healthy, tasty recipe for Lentil-Barley Vegetable Soup. It only took me and my husband 5 minutes to throw all the ingredients into a slow-cooker, then we went to bed and it was done in the morning. You can have it for any meal. It is filling and hot for this cool weather. This is a good soup to help you stay well this winter.

My husband chopped the potatoes and onions. I chopped the carrots and added the rest of the ingredients. I have a 4-quart slow cooker and it was almost all full. Our slow cooker doesn’t boil over if we turn it on high, so that’s worry free.

I had a powerful slow cooker that would boil over onto the counter if left unattended. But, most slow-cookers don’t do that, you’ll have to test your own. We woke up to the smell of yummy soup that tastes as good as Campbell’s. You can also do this in the morning, go to work, and come back to a meal that’s all ready.

Soup is one of the secrets to weight loss. Try having soup before every meal, and you will be cutting calories and feeling fuller. Water-based foods and meals are better than foods high in fat. Read more…

Got Arthritis? It’s Reversible

wheelchair for arthritis patientI have a friend at work whose mother is in a wheelchair with rheumatoid arthritis, and I offered to write a post for her to share with her mother in hopes of helping her. I happen to know that the pain of arthritis is reversible with proper nutrition.

I believe that her mother can have a lot less pain and start to have more movement. I know people personally who have reversed arthritis here in St. George. And, I know of many sources rich in nutritional information and testimonials for the reversal of the pain and the disease.

It brings a big tear to my eye rolling down my cheek to realize the pain and suffering that people are going through – especially when there are so many wonderful sources of awesome and helpful nutritional information about this problem – Wow! and so many inspirational stories to tell, where do I start?
