    10 Less Serious Reasons to Zap

      You may have heard about Hulda Clark from a friend or family member. You may have come across any one of her books audaciously titled “The Cure For All Cancers,” “The Cure for HIV and AIDS,” and “The Cure For All Diseases,” among many others. You may have filed that bit of information in…

    Strength and Grace

    What’s amazing about having a blog that has been around for more than a decade is that I can quickly click through the posts to see my daughter growing up. From the moment she was born to this day, I am filled with gratitude and pride in her good health, strength, skills, and grace. I…

    Girl Power

    Two winters ago, my then-9-year-old daughter asked her dad to help her in a big project. She had done electronics in the past, but this was the first time she came up with something to build it into. First they had to make the circuit. It’s a simple circuit, only meant to light up LEDs…

    How to Make Homemade Pasta

    My daughter has been making homemade pasta with her Dad for as long as she remembers. Preparing meals is a family activity in our home. It’s so gratifying to see my 10-year-old daughter competently handling knives and the stove, while conversing about our family’s health philosophy (in between silly stuff).

    My Daughter’s Homemade Lipbalm

    I tend to skip the lipbalm. Instead of putting on lipbalm when my lips are dry I just drink more water and eat more hydrating fruits. Most lipbalm is made of petroleum, which is a burden on the immune system and obviously wouldn’t be helping me in the long run. Until I tried my daughter’s…

  • Read


    One of the most rewarding parts of my day is reading to my daughter at bedtime. I’ve been reading to her from the moment she was born. When she was a baby, the sound of my voice soothed her as I read her short poems and sang her songs. When she was a toddler exploring…
