Conventional vs. Alternative

Many times in life you will be faced with decisions on how you want to live your life, nourish your body and feed your soul. There are so many different approaches one could take, that sometimes we forget that we have a choice! Do you want fine china or clay pottery, a log cabin in the…

Planticize to Prosperity

When I received my CANcer diagnosis at the end of 2015 I felt, for the first time in my life, like I really had absolutely NO control over anything. As I was still fretting about the possibility of loosing my hair (which I didn’t – Yay me!) I was signed up for a six month…
