The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home is now available! I am so excited to say that my new book, The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home, has been published by Adams Media and is now available online and in bookstores everywhere!
The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home is an easy to understand room-by-room makeover of how to remove potential toxins from every part of your home and your life. For instance:
*Did you know that your hand soap could actually be causing some health problems?
*Find out how the sun can help you banish your indoor allergies.
*Learn the $2 trick to keep more than 100 potentially toxic indoor chemicals from accumulating in your home.
The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home will quickly and easily show you where some of the most potentially toxic items are in your home - and give you the resources to make quick and affordable changes. Do as much as you’d like or as little, but it all adds up!
With plenty of websites with product info throughout the book, you don’t have to navigate bogus marketing claims and confusing store aisles to shop healthy for your family – it’s all here!
I want to help you reduce some of the toxins in your life so that no one in your family ever has to suffer from a medical condition that could have been prevented. I hope you agree, too, and pick up a copy of The Everything Guide to a Healthy Home.

I recently wrote about the farmers market in Zagreb, Croatia, which is the country’s capital city and located several hours inland in the country. Drive to the coast and you’ll find Dubrovnik, perhaps one of the most well known Croatian cities and a favorite among cruise ship passengers. If you’re lucky enough to be in the old walled town when the farmers market is in session, here’s what you’ll find:
If you happen to be in town when strawberries are in season (around May), you are in for a real treat!
I recently had the great opportunity to explore the country of Croatia. It’s a different way of life in this beautiful country. You don’t have to struggle to find “green” or “organic” products. That’s just what comes naturally. One example is the sprawling farmer’s market in the downtown city streets of Zagreb, the capital city. It’s a place where the locals congregate – and the tourists will feel right at home. Enjoy!

Okay, I’m a little bit giddy about VITACARE. Just at a time when I found myself needing to switch to another natural oral care brand, but not too excited about the options available, along comes VITACARE. The tastes, the packaging, the benefits, the feeling of fun about brushing your teeth again – that’s why I am so excited about this stuff!
VITACARE is a fun and funky oral care line that knows what it’s doing and keeps it simple. There are three flavors of toothpaste and gum – Acai, Pomegranate and Key Lime – as well as one flavor of mouthwash – Key Lime, all combined with the freshness of mint. Add some toothbrushes and that’s it. But that’s all they need, because the products are so good.
First – why it’s so good. There’s NO chemicals. Nope. VITACARE clearly commits to not using nasty stuff – such as parabens, phthalates, SLS, Petrochemicals, Sulfates, artificial colors, artificial flavors, or artificial sweeteners. It’s right there on the package, read it and see. Instead they use some serious power natural ingredients to whiten and freshen.
So, what is in it? Lots of healthy stuff, like:
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Cranberry Extract
- Aloe Vera
Just think about it. Your bathing your teeth in vitamins and minerals and all natural ingredients. Pretty cool.
So, how does it taste? Quite honestly, I was prepared for a little something weird when trying a product that combines real Key Lime and Mint together. I mean, that could go seriously wrong. But it didn’t. What a refreshing flavor combination!!! And the Acai and Pomengranate flavors? Equally great. It’s sweet without being too sweet, with a flavor punch that is new and different for adults. If there was a foodie version of a toothpaste, this would be it.
The gum stays soft while chewing it, and the mouthwash doesn’t sting and burn when squishing it around your mouth. Overall, the products are great!
It’s made in the U.S. (score!), with minimal packaging. The labeling is fun and vibrant, extolling their NYC background into an edgier toothpaste packaging that you’ll actually want to keep on the counter, instead of hiding it somewhere else.
If you’re bored with the same old toothpaste, give VITACARE a try. You can find it online through www.vitacareworld.com and www.drugstore.com, as well as select health food stores and some Whole Foods.
The greatest compliment that I can give? I’ve already ordered a second batch of the products for personal use. Not only did I like trying it the first time around, I’m ready to switch from Tom’s of Maine to VITACARE. It’s just that good, and I hope you agree, too.
