From a nurse's perspective, I want to bring healing to those who read my blog. I believe in integrative/nutritional medicine. Mind, body and spirit. I would like to be a positive influence on my followers.
I want to wish you a wonderful weekend ahead and many fun times to be had! I thought I would start the weekend right by getting a head start on my DIY Project. Take a look I would like you to join me on my little journey and learn how to antique my old grandmother's desk. I love the look of the desk but it needs an updated look! I think I would like to use it as a vanity! Check it out! This is the first stage of the project. To be continued...

Formaldehyde is another commonly used chemical found in household cosmetic and personal products. Today we will look at our second ingredient, Formaldehyde, what it is, what it does, where do you find it, and what can it lead us to. We will look at the other chemicals in following days, if you care to read the blog daily.
Formaldehyde, what is it? According to OSHAformaldehyde is defined asFormaldehyde is a colorless, strong-smelling gas often found in aqueous (water-
based) solutions.Also according to an online dictionary Formaldehyde (n.) is1.(MeSH)A highly reactive aldehyde gas formed by oxidation or incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons. In solution, it has a wide range of uses: in the manufacture of resins and textiles, as a disinfectant, and as a laboratory fixative or preservative.

When you talk about cleansing or detoxifying the body? What is our ultimate goal? The goal is to boost our natural body's ability to heal itself, namely our immune system or "immunity". The toxins that are so prevalent in our environment are becoming more and more difficult to avoid. From healthy products, to healthy food, to air, water and everything else. I am definitely a nature lover. I guess we all need to become nature conservationists to help preserve what clean air, water and environment that we have left. Ultimately, if we preserve our environment, we are then able to preserve our health also. How can we preserve our environment?Here are some ideas? Recycling is a good start. Buying and using products that are biodegradable. Plant a tree. Get a tune-up for your car. Water your lawn in the morning. Donate unused items to Goodwill. Walk or ride a bike for transportation, for a change. Use rechargeable batteries. Here's to your health! Love, Nikki B.
