Watermelon Infused Water by Cynthia Bergsbaken Photography.
With all the summer fun of July, we also have the heat which can be harsh on our bodies. Our bodies need enough water to function correctly. Letting ourselves become dehydrated in the summer heat could provide us with the experience of “Heat Stroke”.
To figure out how much water we need, “Wellmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield” suggests using this formula. Multiply your weight by .55. This will give you the ounces/day to drink. When it is hot outside or you’re exercising, multiply your weight by .66 to find out the ounces/day. For example, if I weighed 150 pounds and it’s an average day for temperature, I would multiply 150 x .50= 75 ounces/day of water I need to drink.
Whenever you find yourself thirsty, drink. If you think you’re hungry, focus on your stomach to make sure it is hunger and not thirst. Sometimes, we confuse these two. We think we are hungry, but it is really thirst.
At times, we get bored with the same old/ water flavor.
For a change of pace and great tasting water, try infusing your water with fruits, vegetables, and herbs/spices. Not only does it give it an awesome flavor with out calories, but we are adding minute amount of nutrients.
My favorite infused water for a hot day is Cucumber/Peppermint water. Fill a glass pitcher with 2 quarts of water. Thinly slice a half of cucumber and add to water. Then I add 1-2 fresh sprigs of bruised Peppermint leaves. I bruise mine by crumpling them up in my palm. I’ll do this the night before I want to drink it or I’ll make it before going to work so when I get home, I have cold, flavored water to drink.
I have made citrus infused water, where you thinly slice Oranges, Lemons, and Limes.
I have made citrus/strawberry water, where you thinly slice Lemon, Orange, Limes, and use half Strawberries.
Plain Peppermint infused water is also good and refreshing.
Orange and Cilantro infused water and Watermelon-Peppermint water would be good.
The sky is the limit when it comes to flavors.
Always use fresh, clean herbs/spices and fresh, clean fruits/vegetables. I will use diluted dish soap and rub it on my fruits/vegetables to take off dirt, bacteria, fruit wax and pesticides
By making your own infused water, you save money, you have a high-quality product, and it’s super easy to make.
Provide yourself with enough water every day! And why not make the water spectacular tasting. Have fun with it and enjoy.

It's cold, flu and other sickness season!
From my own experiences I have found that these natural ways are excellent in combating the symptoms.
I am sensitive to many medications and so I have learned to find natural ways to heal.
I call this my Cold/Flu box.
1). Thyme tea
Thyme tea is a great expectorant. Drink a hot tea a few times throughout the day to help bring up the mucus. Start by boiling a cup of water. Add in a tea strainer, 1 teaspoon of dried Thyme. Let the Thyme sit for about 10 minutes. Drink the tea slowly.
2). Netti Pot
A Netti pot is a small little ceramic tea pot that is used to place treated water in to your nasal passages, irrigating them. This is an ancient technique that goes back to ancient India. It is a way to cleanse the nasal passages of irritants that cause problems in the sinus region. Irritants such as: pollen, bacteria, virus, and mucus. Irrigating the sinuses is a great way also to combat allergies caused by pol…
What is Ho'Oponopono and why should it interest me?
This technique is an ancient Hawaiian technique for clearing out your Subconscious mind. The Subconscious mind is also known as our "Inner child". Our Subconscious minds contain all the information and memories of our existence. Our Subconscious minds are like computers collecting all the data that comes to us as energy. Energy that is equivalent to emotions, thoughts, ideas, thinking, etc. This technique was brought to the public by Ihaleakala Hew Len, PhD.
Dr. Hew Len is a psychologist who was working with mentally ill criminals in Hawaii using this technique to cure them. This technique uses "love" to heal. It sounds like a fairy tale, but it is proven through Dr. Hew Len's accomplishments of healing all the criminals in Hawaii's hospital. He did this without even seeing the patient!
This is just a quick back ground of this technique. My intention is to actually give you the technique to star…
Receiving Reiki healing is a great experience. But like any other form of service you receive, it is wise to feel comfortable and confident about and around your practitioner.
Here are a few tips about choosing the right Reiki practitioner for you.
*Meeting with a new Reiki practitioner before committing to taking their service is a must. Asking questions not only about the Reiki service they provide, but a little about the person. Each Reiki practitioner has a different personality and different beliefs, just like anyone else in the world. I would suggest you meet up with the new practitioner days ahead of any thought of receiving a Reiki session. This way, you can get to know the person and understand: what Reiki techniques they use, if they are combining other energy type work with their Reiki, what is the type of Reiki they are using, understand the difference between Reiki types, Get to know the person.
I have read articles from people that have received their f…
