Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer during her lifetime (isn’t that crazy?), I thought it was a good time to pull together some tips and tools to help you help yourself to keep your breasts healthy. Our health is critical to our quality of life. This is why I feature health related content on a “homesteading” site, and why my first e-book is titled “Common Sense Health: Diet, Detox and Physical Activities“. This post will focus on the diet and detoxification aspects of breast health.
As some of you who have been around for a while know, I have Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I shared part of my story back in the post My Thyroid Journey. Although my condition has stabilized and improved through diet, lifestyle changes and Armour Thyroid, I haven’t really made the progress I would like on healing. As such, I’ve decided I need to make time to make more changes, no matter how crazy life may be. This is a guest post by Magdalena Wszelaki, a certified nutrition coach and the founder of Thyroid Diet Coach, addressing some of the common questions, misconceptions and myths associated with Hashimoto’s disease. Magdelena is an affiliate of Common Sense Homesteading, which means that at some point if you decide to purchase one of her programs through the links on this website, I receive an affiliate payment. I think she has a good product and makes a lot more sense than the local doctors I deal with, who just seem to want to treat the symptoms instead of addressing the cause, which has made me very frustrated. I have signed up for this workshop.

In “Common Sense Health: Detox, Diet and Physical Activities“, I’ve shared ideas for things you can do to remove toxins from your life (Detox); strategies for simple, healthy eating (Diet); and physical activities beyond exercise that have been used by holistic practitioners, such as oil pulling and barefoot therapy. No big investment or complicated format, just start where you are with what you have.
I firmly believe that our bodies are designed to heal themselves, if we just give them the tools to do it. Our modern medical system is amazing for repairing trauma and many other health issues, but we’ve lost track of many “back to basics” things we can do to improve our health.
The holiday season seems to leave many of us with upset stomach, indigestion, heart burn, diarrhea and other tummy troubles. If you’re coping with stomach flu symptoms, you should take a look at this post to find out why the BRAT diet is probably not your best option. For extra protection against food-borne illness, check out “Protect Yourself from Salmonella and E Coli Naturally“. For general indigestion, I’ve compiled this home remedies for upset stomach that may help sooth your aching belly, plus recommendations on how to avoid it in the first place.
