I have often heard people talk about a pain that is in the back of their thigh and runs down the back of the leg. This can sometimes be Sciatic nerve pain.
Sciatica is a term used to describe radiating pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve, running from your lower spine through the buttock and down the back of the leg. It flares when the sciatic nerve is irritated or pinched by any of a range of problems in your lower back.
To help with relief from Sciatic Nerve Pain – Dr. Steve has a really simple stretch that may just help you in your day.
This Stretch is called the Pirformis Stretch for low back pain and Sciatica.
The tightness in these muscles often happens from extended sitting or even bouncing on a tractor seat or a bumpy ride in a big truck.
Irritated joints, irritation in the digestive tract, even high blood pressure and allergies can be a sign of inflammation.
Autoimmune disorders can crop up from unmanaged inflammation.
Inflammation culprits can be many and depending on who you are. Things that irritate me could be different from what irritates you, and vice versa.
Inflammation doesn’t only affect joints. You may not have known that irritation of the digestive tract often follows that of the joints.
Take a guess at what the # 1 inflammatory food is? You guessed it. Sugar.Continue reading
Essential Oils have many different usages. Knowing what essential oils should be diluted on sensitive skin (S), what essential oils should always be diluted (D) and what essential are safe to use directly on the skin – Neat (N) – is very important.
Along with that information, it is also important to know what Oils can be used where. We have put together a list of Application Methods.
All the oils can be used Aromatically (A) this would mean things like smelling them from the bottle, placing them in a diffuser or applying them to a natural diffuser, like jewelry, reed diffuser or other items. Many oils are safe to use Topically (T) on the skin. Then several essential oils can be used internally (I) if the oils are a Therapeutic grade of essential oils.
|.||SKIN SENSITIVITY||APPLICATION METHODS||.|
|N - Neat - Can be used topically without dilution||A - Can be used aromatically|
|S - Sensitive - Dilute for young or sensitive skin||T - Can be used topically|
|D - Dilute - Always dilute before using Topically||I - Can be used internally|

I found this great recipe for a home-made vegetable wash. This is so easy to make and so handy to use. Vinegar and lemon essential oil have many antimicrobial properties so it works well to your vegetables with.
Lemon Essential Oil helps cut through the oily and waxy substances that are used on fruit and vegetables. Some of those substances on the fruits and vegetables are pesticides, some are substances stores use to make the fruit shine and stay fresh-looking longer.
Spray this on your fruit or vegetables and wait a little bit – then wash. The other way is to put a 2 teaspoons in a basin of water and wash fruit with it.
The essential oils tend to float to the top of your spray so be sure to shake well before each use. Unless you emulsify the oils into the baking soda – We will show you how to do that on the video.
Vinegar and Baking Soda are important ingredients to help remove the pesticides from the fruit. While lemon has powerful abilities to kill bacteria.
Natural remedies for allergies. So a friend of mine asked me, Mary, what kind of things would you use if you were struggling with allergies right now?
Pollen Is high these days, right away my mind comes back to the basics. Lemon, Lavender & Peppermint. They have such an amazing synergistic effect.
Lemon, Lavender & Peppermint are natural antihistamines. Combining the three together they complement each other well.

In a stunning development, a former Chief Science Officer for the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer says “there is no science to suggest a second wave should happen.” The “Big Pharma” insider asserts that false-positive results from inherently unreliable COVID tests are being used to manufacture a “second wave” based on “new cases.”
Dr. Mike Yeadon, a former Vice President and Chief Science Officer for Pfizer for 16 years, says that half or even “almost all” of tests for COVID are false positives. Dr. Yeadon also argues that the threshold for herd immunity may be much lower than previously thought, and may have been reached in many countries already.Continue reading

Essential Oils are Natural, Effective & Safe but most importantly they work with the body to address issues and root causes on a cellular level.
We have put together a short video for you to explain this process.
Iodine is an element that’s required for the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones. Since the body does not produce iodine on its own, it needs to come from dietary sources—and striking the right balance is key. Inadequate levels or overconsumption of iodine can lead to or worsen thyroid disease, as well as cause other significant health concerns.
Iodine is one of the most important minerals required by the body for healthy cellular and complete metabolic function. Breast tissue, the uterus, the ovaries, the thyroid, the brain and the prostate depend on iodine. But typical intake levels for most people are not optimal.
Iodine supplementation can be life-changing!
In our family if we have been around crowds or plan to be around a lot of people we take Iodine supplementation. We also start taking iodine any time we have the slightest scratchy throat. Even if you think you have been around dust or your allergies may be acting up we have found that by fortifying our body with Iodine we decrease our risk of these things turning into an infection.
We have often seen in our family that if we start taking our iodine with we first feel a cold or flu coming on it will considerably decrease the length of time that we are sick. Instead of having a 2 week flu we may just have a 3 day flue.
I don’t mean to make any medical claims by sharing my story but just wanted to share why and how iodine supplementation has helped our family.Continue reading
Resveratrol is a phytoalexin, a class of compounds produced by many plants when they are infected by pathogens or physically harmed by cutting, crushing, or ultraviolet radiation.

Here are a few of the major things we covered in this video:
Pre-conditions the heart and brain from damage caused by strokes and heart attacks. Does this by raising the activity of heme-oxygenase, a protective antioxidant enzyme that is usually activated after heart attacks and strokes. This means individuals can sustain a heart attack or stroke and suffer small or no adverse consequences.*
Prevents blood clots that cause strokes and heart attacks by inhibiting the enzyme phosphoinositide 3-kinase.
Increases the activity of an enzyme called human endothelial nitric oxide synthase which then produces nitric oxide, an agent that widens blood vessels and controls blood pressure.*Continue reading
