Eating Organic May Be More Important Than You Think


A study reported in Prevention Magazine found that the higher price for organic groceries is worth the price. Kids, ages 2 to 5, who ate a 75% organic diet, had chemicals at a level six times lower in their diet
than kids on a conventional diet. These chemicals cause neurological damage, leukemia and other types of cancer.  The chemicals they were looking at are the ones commonly used in agricultural pesticides in the US. So...organic may really pay for children and even adults.

What If Your Baby Has Colic


There's a great herbal remedy for colic. It's fennel. In clinical trials with 125 colicky babies from 2 to 12 weeks old, one half were given fennel and the other group received water. After seven days of treatment, 65% of the fennel group significantly improved after taking fennel-seed-oil called Pediacalm. Only 24% of the placebo group improved. Use 1/4 teaspoons between feedings and up to 2 oz per day. And best of all there are no side effects.

In addition fennel has been shown to relieve indigestion, including pain, nausea, belching, heartburn and colitis.
