Pass the salt!

Contrary to popular belief, I don’t think salt is a bad thing.  Actually epsom salts made of magnesium sulfate have great medicinal properties when absorbed through the skin.  The biggest benefit is that it helps replete magnesium in the body.  This helps with muscle cramping often associated with chronic dehydration (from too much Mtn Dew), works as an anti-inflammatory, and removes dead skin.  The biggest benefit is that magnesium helps raise serotonin levels which elevate mood and concentration.  With most of the country suffering from adrenal fatigue, we could all use a little elevation in mood.  Last but not least,  and most important for me, it will help relieve foot odor.  I have two children I need to douse in epsom salts baths tonight.  The stench radiating from our house is unreal!

The Fresh Produce Dilemma

I know that I have to incorporate more fresh fruits and vegetables into my diet.  But, it’s expensive and I don’t know where the heck I’m going to get coupons for fresh produce!  If I buy them in the store, are they all grown without pesticides?  Do I have to buy organic?

So I think I’ll build a garden and grown them at home.  Is the soil in my backyard safe?  Is there an industrial plant nearby spilling chemicals into my soil.  How much of my dumb dog’s pee does it take to lower the nutritional value of the bell pepper?

Tower garden is a state-of-the-art vertical aeroponic growing system that allows almost anyone to grow their own fresh fruits and vegetables at home.  All you need is a sunny patio,deck, or balcony.  Maybe I will use this product to bridge the gap.
