Addiction is something we see and hear about daily. The current Fentanyl and Opioid addiction crisis is hitting deadly proportions.
IF people seek help for overcoming this, it typically involves rehab and medication to detox. Medications like Naltrexone and Buprenorphine are used to reduce dependence to opioids and fentanyl, and to normalize proper brain functioning.
Is There A More Natural Way
To Treat An Addiction?
Rejuvenated On A Road Trip? I don’t know about you…
But our road trips are rarely the RESTFUL kind of Rejuvenating. These trips are often inspiring and tiring.
Earlier this month, I got to participate in the Rejuvenate YOU event in Murray, UT. What an inspirational time it was for me! I got to:
Learn more about looking at myself the way God does. Find connections with others there Some were new friends, yet with very little conversation, we established a deep connection. Find out the beautiful ways others have found joy in the midst of struggles. Found some new core healing methods for our family. Laugh play like I did when I was 5 years old Look myself in the eyes (with the photo above) and feel a love for exactly WHO I am!
I have been basking in the many new things I learned and felt while at this event
Food Coloring Chemicals – What Are They? Are they something I can eat and still be healthy? Food dyes really ARE ingredients to become aware of to protect our health.
Why Do Artificial colors/food dyes matter? They are made from petroleum chemicals. Gasoline, tar, asphalt, diesel fuel all have a common connection with these food additives. Even though there ARE natural ways to make food coloring (beets, onions, plants), it is cheaper for food manufacturers to use synthetic, petroleum based additives.
That is a BIG pile of stuff to worry about!
Hormones are the messengers with chemicals that get released into the blood stream. The hormones cause action in the targeted organ. Although these hormones go throughout the body, only target cells with the right receptors are ready to respond to the specific hormones.
Did you know that over 50 hormones have been identified in humans and other vertebrates?
That is definitely much more than just sex hormones!!!!
