“Nature also has the power to heal us. Most medicines are derived, directly or indirectly, from plants. But nature can heal us mentally, too. Scientific studies have shown that natural scenes can reduce stress and anxiety, and have a strong calming and restoring effect. In one experiment, patients recovering from surgery were divided into two groups. One group was put in rooms that overlooked a copse of trees, the others had a view of a plain brick wall. Those with the natural view recovered faster, had fewer complications, and needed fewer painkillers.”—Paul Harrison (via purplebuddhaproject)
Hey Fran, do you have any natural remedies that helps with bloating? Do you do any detox tea? Thank you
Try dipping a slice of ginger into fresh lemon juice and chewing on it 30 minutes before a meal. That will help settle your stomach! Or you can crush a teaspoon of Fennel Seeds (sold at most supermarkets/health food stores) and add them to a hot cup of mint tea, after eating. Those are my 2 go-to tricks for bloating.
Also keep in mind why it is you’re feeling that way! Too much salt in your diet? Are you chewing your food enough? Are you combining the wrong foods (too many different proteins at once, proteins and starches together, eating fruit after a big meal?, etc)? Hope that helps!

Hey Fran I was wondering if you had anything natural that deals with arthritis. My Grands is in pain and though I know it won't cure it, id like to give something that'll at least make it a little easier
I would suggest looking into Arnica. It’s a flower used to heal muscle soreness, arthritis and a few other painful ailments of the body. I’ve seen people suggest the flower as a tea (just added to hot water) but i’ve found that method to take longer as a form of pain relief. I would suggest you go to a health store and look for Arnica lotions and gels, for immediate topical application. It will work so much faster and give your grandma a clean, healthy form of pain relief (no pill popping) without side effects. I hope that helps!
“Just because I liked something at one point in time doesn’t mean I’ll always like it, or that I have to go on liking it at all points in time as an unthinking act of loyalty to who I am as a person, based solely on who I was as a person. To be loyal to myself is to allow myself to grow and change, and challenge who I am and what I think.”—Jarod Kintz (via liberatingreality)
Hi Fran! I used to have long eyelashes. Since using mascara on a regular basis, I've noticed they're significantly shorter. Besides cutting back on mascara, is there a way to grow my eyelashes back? I like wearing it because I want to, not because I need to!
I posted a video on a DIY all-natural eyebrow/eyelashgrowth serumhere. Hope that helps!
