Several years ago I had a few recurrent urinary tract infections. They were an early warning sign of my leaky gut and interstitial cystitis (now healed). I found several herbs that when steeped or boiled, depending on the nature of the herb, made a healing tea that gave me complete relief and healing within just a couple of hours.

Megan Food Philosophy, Health & Nutrition 2 Comments

“What America needs is healthy fast food and the only way to provide this is to put brothals in every town, independently owned brothals that provide the basic ingredient for soups and sauces and stews. And brothals will come when Americans recognize that the food industry has prostituted itself to short cuts and huge profits, shortcuts that cheat consumers of …
