Sometimes it appears as if some of the foods we value least are the most beneficial to our health. For instance, nuts are loaded with healthy fats, protein, antioxidants, sterols, fiber and plenty of minerals and vitamins.

7 Ways to Keep Your Sanity (And Remain Christian) During the Holidays

Winter is off to a brutal start this year for many of us. And just the mention of the holidays and the Christmas season can send chills up our spines! Along with guilt because this SHOULD be “the most wonderful time of the year”… or so they say. Add to that the imposed assumption that people of faith should NOT get stressed about anything, let alone one of our most quintessential days of celebration!

Unfortunately, we are human. Christians or not, this can be a very hard time for many. Cold stormy weather, darkness, power outages, holiday hooplas, excessive special events, family stresses, increased financial pressures, painful memories, extra obligations, overloaded schedules, junk food galore, lack of exercise, more crowds, less space, emotional upheavals, etc.

I received a desperate message from a young mother reeling from a recent divorce:

"There’s no way I am going to make it through this year!” FULL POST

The Reason Why I Feel Serelax is the Leading Anti-Depression Supplement

I have managed health food stores for the last 18 years and so I know quite a lot when it comes to natural remedies. With all this experience and knowledge, my son still went into depression. When he was just 18 years old! I don’t know how this happened under my watch but it happened. Well, you would think that I would have prescribed a natural remedy myself with my vast experience and the likelihood that I would get it for free at work.

You thought wrong. I had no natural remedy in mind at that time. In fact, I was opposed to the idea that he should be given a natural remedy. I have not said that they don’t work or that I don’t trust them, it is only that none of the products we were dealing with had the capabilities of healing my son. I found myself at a very tight corner. I was not comfortable with my son taking pharmaceuticals—I am not implying that they don’t work or that they are harmful, I just think that there are better ways to treat depression. FULL POST
