I'd like to talk a little bit about the differences between acute yeast infections (vaginal, oral thrush, etc.) and systemic candida. It is common knowledge amongst high carb vegans that too much…Continue

I am a Certified Professional Midwife (CPM) and a Florida Licensed Midwife (LM), and I have a deep passion for gentle, unhindered birth. I also dabble in herbal medicine and enjoy making intentional, pretty jewelry. A beautiful kitty named Ophelia is part of our family. I read mainly childbirth-related books, but always find time for some fantasy novels (The Sevenwaters Trilogy by Juliette Marillier is my favorite, followed closely by Mists of Avalon). Oh, and I also love to sing.

100 Squats a Day 30-Day Challenge

Posted on April 2, 2013 at 3:22pm 18 Comments

My husband and I have decided to do Ted Carr's 100 Squats a Day 30-Day Challenge, and we started today!  Besides daily walking and occasional yoga, neither of us have ever done any high-intensity workouts before, so we are both excited and nervous!  I'll be documenting the challenge, complete with before and after pics and weekly squat videos, on our blog here:…


Addicted to fats...going overt-free for one month to bring candida down to healthy levels!

Posted on March 21, 2013 at 1:00am 1 Comment

So somehow in the last month I've gotten myself addicted to an excess amount of fat.  It's most likely stress related, but it has now gotten out of hand and I need to fix it.  I am not one of those 811'ers who is afraid of overts.  I believe that overt fats, when consumed at a maximum of 10% of daily calories, can be quite beneficial.  The problem, of course, is that I've been consuming upwards of 20% fat daily!  I do plan on including a small amount of overt fats for the rest of my days. …


That moment when...

...you rip your date in half, inspect the half without the pit, eat it, and then remove the pit from the other half only to discover a weevil and tons of poop.

I gagged a little.  And then fed the weevil half to the dog. :-)

Hi! Loved your blog post with all the photos, very encouraging to see your little one loving the raw food! Mine is getting there slowly, but we're new to it so he does occasionally remember things like bread, and whatever anyone else is eating!
Thanks for adding me xxx

thanks for accepting my friend request :) i figure that you might be able to give me some advice since youre mammalicious yourself. see, i have a close friend of mine who's 4months pregnant, and she's considering starting 811 lifestyle. do you think its doable to convert to this lifestyle while pregnant? she eats very healthfully seen with conventional eyes, but meats, dairy products and breads are all a part of her staples.

gratefully, sanna
