Bridging the Gap Between Seasonal Allergies and Your Diet

Seasonal Allergies

First off, I wanted to start by saying that if your allergy symptoms are severe, then please make an appointment with an allergist if you are able. I am not a doctor and cannot provide medical advice, and I recommend seeking a professional to truly get your symptoms under control.

There are indeed ways to lessen your symptoms through more natural means, but it is definitely still a good idea to use this as a supplement and to consider giving allergy shots a try if you and your doctor deem it necessary. I did it, and it worked wonders for me.

That being said: As a lifelong allergy sufferer I have learned a lot along the way, and I will be sharing that with you below! Let me start by giving a little overview of what allergies are, and then we will discuss symptoms, natural as well as medical remedies, why diet is extremely important, and then a little bit more about my personal journey. By the end of this post hopefully you will have a much better idea of which direction to take to knock down your allergy symptoms once and for all! (more…)

Why You NEED to Start Taking Risks NOW

Why you need to start taking risks now

 

“There is no excuse for anyone living in the United States or anywhere else right now to slog through his or her entire life working at jobs they hate, or even jobs they simply don’t love, in the name of a paycheck or a sense of responsibility.” – Gary Vaynerchuk

 

“Or even Job’s they simply don’t love.” This part of that brilliant quote from Gary Vaynerchuk is where the drive behind this post comes from. If you don’t simply love your job, why are you still working there? Do you believe you are stuck and are unable to break free? Currently, I am RIGHT there with you. I don’t hate my job by any means, but does it fill me with an insatiable passion that drives me there every single Monday morning? My answer is no, so what is yours? If it is no, what are you doing about it?

This exact scenario can be tied to any part of your life that you may be unhappy with. Are you less than pleased with your weight, your financial situation or your marriage? Taking calculated risks is key to breaking free of the status quo and driving towards a positive change. It is risky to start a diet, begin budgeting, or sitting your spouse down for a lengthy conversation, but isn’t it worth the effort?

Any change in life is ripe with risks, but isn’t the alternative (living a mediocre life) worse than the inherent risk you are taking? Being willing to take risks and to step out of our comfort zones is vital to making the changes we so desperately want for our lives.

In this post we are going to talk about risk taking and why everyone should be doing more of it. It’s time to get real and start taking action with our lives. No more saying “well someday” or “tomorrow.” The time is NOW! (more…)

Kicking Your IBS symptoms to the curbIrritable bowel syndrome is something that many adults deal with. Overall, about 10-15% of Americans suffer from IBS related symptoms. It is something I have suffered with, and this puts me in a unique position to provide advice and hopefully help you (the reader!) out.

You can go to a generic page on the internet about IBS, but most of what’s out there is useless and unrelated for everyday people. Hopefully this article is different, and by the end you will be able to decide for yourself if you have IBS along with having some practical solutions to try out. I am no doctor, but most symptoms of IBS can effectively be treated by home remedies and by changing your diet around.
