Is Clutter Truly Bad for the Soul?

“This does not spark joy” – the anthem of 2018 should sound familiar. With the sweeping trends of Scandivanian hygge (cozy and tactilely pleasing aesthetic) and minimalism (austere and bare, but carefully chosen possessions) pressing forward into our consciousness, it was easy to get swept up.

Plenty of people went on donation binges. Organized their garages. Held yard sales to disperse years and years of capitalist accumulation, sold on the idea that without their material baggage, their internal selves would be liberated and free.

Give Your Gut a Break with Bone Broth

Liquid diets have long been touted as quick gut-fixers… And not for no reason.

So many diseases have been linked to a microbial imbalance — a disproportionate bacteria distribution in your gut — that people have come up with all kinds of solutions ever since humankind started listening to our guts.

Because there are more than 100 trillion bacteria in the digestive system — great than in the entire rest of our bodies — there’s a pretty big margin for error.

Coconut Oil Vs. Coconut Milk: What Does your Gut Say?

Nobody could afford coconut oil during the war in the 1940s. Although it had been used in European and American, not to mention Caribbean and Filipino, cooking for centuries, Americans lost their access to it, except at exorbitant prices. (If you’re wondering, that’s how soy was able to get such a foothold in our eating practices.)

When coconut oil reentered the market, the national food and health authorities had turned on it – they claimed it was basically lard. Coconut oil is 93% saturated fat, and during the 1950s, there wasn’t a dirtier curse word in the medical community. 

We thought it clogged arteries and caused heart disease.

Here’s How to Purify Your Air with Nature — Love, NASA

We know the air outside is polluted. And pollution is…

Micro-contaminants in the air that change the environment around it.

The outside air has pollutants from vehicle exhaust, landfills, pesticides running into water sources, factory smoke, etc. But the indoor air isn’t any safer.

In fact, studies done on the quality of most of our indoor air show that it’s stale, rarely refreshed, and full of every pollutant we bring into the house with us. And since Westerners spend the vast majority of their time indoors, up to 90% in some places, it’s a serious problem that should be factored into the discussion about how pollution affects our health.
