Are You Guilty?

I know you are interested in healthy eating and natural healing like I am because you are reading this newsletter or Blog. But are you guilty? I am. Even though I eat organic, natural, whole foods, I sometimes eat the wrong ones for my body type or I eat too much. It’s not easy to say “no” to an organic chocolate cake with fresh raspberries and cream! Or how about a few pieces of the freshly baked parmesan-pepper bread from the local co-op bakery baked on stone ovens? And it just isn’t the same without some fresh organic butter…...

Tears in the Classroom & A Poem

Sometimes we plan the best lesson and get so excited anticipating the results in our class…and then it does not go as planned. This is what happened one day when we were shaping bread and my daughter burst into tears. It was unexpected and disappointing for me. What had I done wrong? Or did another student do something to her? What had gone wrong in my class? So what does one do with tears? Or when the lesson does not go as planned? Sofi wrote this for the Earthschooling Kids Connect forum (where Earthschooling kids can share their...

I Won’t Travel Without This

Travel can bring surprises. We always hope those are good surprises but sometimes they come in the form of small accidents, stomach aches, fevers, new allergies, jet lag, sleeplessness, anxiety, motion sickness, headaches, food poisoning or otherwise. I know because in my travels around the states and the world I have experienced them all! That is why I won’t leave home without my favorite portable travel remedy. And the best part? It is all natural and fits in my pocket! As a Naturopath I wish I could bring ten different flowers, leaves and roots with me, some tinctures...

Have a Health Question?

I do too! I have a lot of them and have had a lot since I was a child. Like… Why does my ear hurt so much? Why is my nose running all the time? Why does my child have a fever? Is his arm broken? Why is my client gaining weight? Why is my client tired all the time? Iridology has been a faithful friend in answering those questions. But what is that? When I first heard about iridology I thought it was a kind of colon therapy. I had never heard of it before. But that...

The Free Multivitamin

We all know how expensive a good quality multi-vitamin is. But what if I told you that you could enjoy the benefits of the best multi-vitamin on the planet, that kids and adults like it and that it is free for most people or at least under $2.00 a month… The formula seems simple enough but the power behind the formula is amazing… The plants we use can be found growing wild in most yards or woody areas or can be purchased, already dried, for under $2.00 a month. Or, if you want to have an ongoing supply...

Meet Our Teachers! Jennifer Tan

We are interviewing some of our wonderful teachers in the coming months to help you learn more about them and what they do for us. These interviews are so much fun! Enjoy getting to know more about Jennifer Tan: 1. You have done a wonderful Tunisian crochet video for Earthschooling. How did you get started with Tunisian Crochet? I learned how to crochet from my mother and grandmother when I was young. I enjoyed trying different sizes of hooks and a variety of styles.  One day, I saw information online about Tunisian crochet, and I started to research...

Spring & Summer Protection-ade

Does the thought of a refreshing day by the lake or at the local swimming pool have you jumping up and down for joy or does it have you running to hide? If you or someone you love suffers from allergies, environmental and/or chemical sensitivities it will be the word “pollen” that is heard instead of “lake vacation” and the words “chlorine overdose” or “bacterial infection” instead of, “pool”. I would love to share our “Spring & Summer Protection-ade” recipe with you to help you get through these experiences. It has been a great help in our family! This recipe includes...

Is it Just Me?

Do you ever wonder, “Is it just me? What am I doing wrong? I am trying so hard!” What if I told you, “No, it is not just you!” In actuality – all that inner work and planning you have been doing is being negated by someone every day! And that the person doing this might be you… A recent study has shown that people who have a warm beverage in their hands rate a stranger’s personality as warmer than those without the warm beverage and are more likely to be agreeable in negotiations. The same effect can...
