Natural and safe flea control for the home

Flea Control for Cats
For the first time my cat (Stimpy) has recently developed a very persistent flea problem and managed, despite my best efforts, to infest my home as well - so I ended up covered in itchy bites! I don't mind treating Stimpy with the regular anti-flea products as I can apply them wearing my carbon filter mask (or holding my breath!) and then leave him outside for the rest of the day. When it comes to my home however there is no way I can spray pesticides/insecticides on my carpets and furnishings. I'd never be able to live there again. On a recent trip to Pets at Home (the equivalent of PetSmart in the US) I came across a product labelled with stand-out words such as "natural" and "organic". I've learned through experience that this in no way means the product is safe for those with environmental illness however so I made a mental...

Body odor.

What is body odor? What makes someone smell clean? In our society, we equate a perfume-y, fragranced smell with clean and normal body odor as dirty. My boyfriend has not washed with soap in five years. He was nervous when we first met that I would think he smelled bad. On the contrary, I actually really loved his smell. That's because his diet is pure and he has minimal exposure to toxins in personal care and other types of products. So there is no bad smelly stuff to sweat out. Just normal human smell. I much prefer it to nasty chemicals in fragrances that are just masking over dirt. If you smell bad enough to want to use perfume, take a good look at your diet and lifestyle and start cleaning those up before you reach for the carcinogenic chemicals in fragranced products.   reposted from http://planetthrive.com/members/blog/earthwalker

Natural Alternatives to Antidepressant Medications

Natural Antidepressants There has been a flurry of media activity in the UK this week after researchers from the University of Hull published a study showing that for mild to moderate depression antidepressant drugs show no clinically significant benefit over placebo. In other words they are pretty much useless. It turns out that pharmaceutical companies have been 'selectively reporting' studies on the effectiveness

Looking for alternatives to chemical air fresheners

To those of us who have been affected by multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and related conditions, fragranced products are a major menace. I feel those products rather amusingly called 'air fresheners' deserve special attention because of the way they are advertised to the public.

Manufacturers of 'air fresheners' make out that these products will make the air in our homes
