How to Make Delicious Sweet Tea at Home

As I am shopping for my home or business on a weekly basis, I have a really crazy habit of buying sweet green or raspeberry tea from the local store. In fact, every time I go to the store; I get thristy I and I choose tea!

The only problem with that is the fact that most teas that you buy from the local store contains High  Fructose Corn syrup. This is why I have decided to make my own sweet tea at home or buy my teas only from the health food market.

Today I am going to share with you a quick, easy and healthy way to make your own delicious and sweet tea at home.

1. Purchase your tea bags from your local whole foods store, prefably organic tea: green, white, chamomile,etc.

2. Boil hot water in a tea kettle on the stove or use a stainless steel pot to boil your water in.

3. Add your tea bag(s) to the cup, pour the hot water over the tea bag, add (liquid agave sweetner) and 2 slices of lemon and enjoy!

If you want to make tea for later, make several cups, wait until the tea cools down and pour in a jug that you can drink from later. This will save you lots of money and it's cheaper to buy the tea bags by the box. Moreover, you are no longer  drinking a can of tea that is loaded with artificial sweetners; you are sweetening up your favorite tea with a plant based sweetener!

I look forward to reading your thoughts about this post!

Turn off The Central Air Conditioning Unit and Open The Windows

As my Grandmother used to tell me...turn off the air and let in God's Fresh Air...

I was inspired to write this blog post, because my Air Conditioning unit stopped working (one day prior to writing this post) and we were forced to open the windows in our home. The temperature outdoors was in the high 70's, however, it was humid outdoors and my daughter began to tell my husband how hot it was in the house. This is when I realized how much we were depending on Air Conditioning.

After the windows were open for about 30 minutes, the temperature in our home was much cooler. In fact, it was great sleeping with the windows open verses chilling our bodies with the Air Conditioning unit. Today I want to share with you the benefits of opening your windows and letting in fresh air. Also, I will share with you negative effects that Air Conditioning can have on the body.

The benefits of opening your windows and letting in Fresh air.
According to Natural Health Restored, "A steady supply of fresh air is very important. Fresh air provides you with a steady supply of oxygen which is needed by your brain and every single cell of your body. If you stay in a closed in area for a long period of time, you will end up breathing in the same air over and over again. The oxygen content of the air will go down continually as you (and whoever else happens to be in the room with you) breathe out carbon dioxide and other wastes."
  •  Removes odors in your home
  •  It is refreshing and will give you a lift
  •  Helps the airways of your lungs to dilate more fully and improves the cleansing action of your lungs
  •  Alters your brain levels of serotonin which helps to improve your mood and promote a sense of happiness and well-being
  •  Strengthens your immune system by supplying it with the oxygen it needs. White blood cells require more oxygen when working to kill and destroy bacteria, viruses, and germs. Enough oxygen will ensure that they are able to function properly
For more tips on the benefits of breathing fresh air, visit the Natural Health Restored Blog .

Negative effects that Air Conditioning can have on the body.
 I am not saying that on an extremely hot day, that I will not turn on my Air conditioning, however I want to point out to you that spending too much time in an Air Conditioning building or home does have negative effects on the body and they are as follows:
  • Indoor Air Contamination
  • Spreads Disease
  • Can Cause Workplace illness 
  • Central air conditioning units, according to the EPA, can spread indoor pollutants such as bacteria, molds, mildew, viruses, pollen and animal dander.

Be sure to open those windows and let in God's Fresh Air!

A Spiritual Solution to a Healthy Body

 As I was reading the book, There's a Spiritual Solution to every problem by Dr. Wayne Dyer; I discovered a life changing paragraph. I  could hardly wait to share it with you, because I believe that it will give you a Vigorous, Loving, Healthy and Positive mindset about your body and Dr. Dyer wrote:

"I want to say unequivocally that the intelligence that inhabits your body will become whatever you project it to be. It will create a healthy or a sickly body depending on how you decide to use your mind. If you want a truly healthy body, and the ability to sow pardon in the face of any kind of injury, you must first heal your mind with unconditional love and recognize that your body is a firmly entrenched instrument of spirit make your mind vigorously, loving, healthy and positive and your body will respond accordingly."

Wow! This inspired me to not be so obsessive about the food that I eat, however, be more focused on  the state of my mind. What about you? I look forward to reading your thoughts about this post.

The "Natural" Power of Crystals

I was recently in the Earth Bound Store at a Local Mall and I spotted a plastic pouch that contained some crystal and the Word "Energy" was at the top of the plastic pouch.

Moreover, I was a little skeptical about a piece of crystal lifting my energy and at the same time, I was compelled to try it. The instruction on the packet was simple and it read: simply soak the crystals in salt water, allow your crystals to sit outdoors to soak up energy from the sun and hold them in your hand.

So....I decided to buy the crystals!  Immediately after opening the crystals, I rinsed them, sat the Crystals on a table in my sun room for 15-minutes and I held them in my hands for several minutes. My mood was immediately lifted and my hands even had a smooth feel.

The day that I wrote this blog post, I decided to do some more research on the power of crystals and here are some of the sites that I found:

Charging Crystals
The Crystal Site
Healing Crystals for you
Crystal energy healing

I look forward to reading your thoughts about this blog post. Most of all, I would like to know how you have increased your energy with the power of crystals.

How to Cure That "Belly" Fat

According to the July 9, 2012 edition of the First For Women Magazine, " Increasingly, eateries are whetting guests' appetites by packing their dishes with extra sugar, which can set off a chain reaction that leads to belly fat."

I must say that I agree 100% with that statement above. In fact, several weeks prior to writing this blog post, I decided to try a new green apple tea that was sold at a local gas station. That tea was so delicious, however, I noticed that I was started to gain some extra belly fat after one week of drinking 32 ounces of the green apple tea everyday on my lunch break.

Then, I discovered why I was gaining that extra belly fat after reading, Jorge Cruise Article in the First For Women Magazine. In the article, Cruise listed examples of foods that were "belly bad" and foods that were "belly good." I was quite surprised to discover that by simply choosing foods that are lower in sugar grams; you will shed pounds and lose that excess belly fat.

Jorge Cruise is the author of The Belly Fat Cure and has found that a diet low in simple carbs or low in sugar can help women lose as much as 4 to 9 pounds of belly fat a week.

I've already started reducing the number of carbs that I ingest on a daily basis. In fact,  after reading Cruise's article, I now choose unsweetened teas or diet lemonade when I am dining out.

I once heard one of my favorite doctors (Don Colbert) say that, "Belly fat can lead to diabetes and it is bad for your overall health. In fact, Dr. Colbert Colbert also said (while speaking at my church) that you can tell how healthy an individual is by looking at their waist size.

  Photo Credit: Healthy Foods

Start drinking this amazing juice on a regular basis 
and you just might have a healthier body.
~Carmen T Wilson

 I was recently shopping for some grape fruit juice at the local Trader Joes store, I discovered a quart of Carrot Juice. I immediately picked up the quart of carrot juice, because I know how beneficial that carrots are in your everyday diet. In fact, my goal is to drink more 100% juices to detoxify my body and studies show that carrot juice is one of the healthiest life style choices.

If you are like me and do not like the taste of Carrot juice, here is a simple way to sweetened the juice: add some orange juice or freshly squeezed lemonade to help make the drink more enjoyable.

In this blog post, I will be sharing with you 10 health benefits of drinking carrot juice and they are as follows:

  1. Loaded with Vitamin A, E, B and many minerals
  2. Helps to reduce the risks of many different types of cancers including skin and breast cancer, along with helping to eliminate cancer-causing free radicals in the body.
  3.  Strengthens the bones, teeth, nails and hair
  4. Extremely beneficial for the liver
  5. Improves eye sight
  6. Beneficial for Prenatal health
  7. Excellent source of Vitamin C
  8. Drinkable Source of Potassium
  9. Loaded with Antioxidants
  10. Excellent Nutritional Supplement for dieters
As mentioned above, I purchased my 100% carrot juice from the store, however, I strongly believe that you will get all of the benefits of a raw carrot, by simply juicing at home.

Juicing is a great way to detoxify your body and feel more energized. For more information on Juicing, check out Dr. Don Colbert's book, Toxic Relief

Warning: If you have kidney disease, you should avoid too much potassium, as it can be harmful to your organs.

My Recent Natural Health & Beauty Findings

I am so excited to share some of my natural health & beauty findings with you! In fact, when I travel, I am on a hunt for natural products!

While I was waiting to get a massage at the Spa Shiki at the Lake of the Ozarks, I decided to check out their Natural Supplements and their Inhalation tubes caught my attention.

In fact, the Inhalation tubes caught my attention because I love aromatherapy and the affects that it has on the body. The inhalation tube that I bought was for mental clarity. All that is required is to simply waive the tube in front of my nose and inhale.

 I decided to purchase the mental clarity inhalation tube because I tend to have very busy days and half way through the day...I can use a Mental BOOST! 

For more information about inhalation, visit

After several hours at the Spa Shiki, we stopped by the Cosmetics Store, because I was on the hunt for some natural skin care products and I discovered that the Cosmetics store sold Origins; my favorite skin care product.

I love Origins products because they are all natural and very gentle on my skin. Moreover, I have very sensitive skin and Origins products seems to be a great match for my skin type. When I was in the Cosmetics store I noticed a trial size kits of Origins White tea facial cleanser and moisturizers.

I decided to give the product a try and I loved it. In fact, my skin was so refreshed after using the cleanser and the moisturizers. Try Origins Today!

My last stop was at the bath and body store. Again I was on the hunt for some all natural beauty products and I discovered the Vanilla Verbena Stress reducing body Wash with essential oils.

After a day of shopping, I took a nice hot bath with the Vanilla Verbena body wash and it was a relaxing experience.

This blog post was not intended to promote any particular product, however, it is intended to inspire you to go natural when shopping for health and beauty products!

I look forward to your feedback about this blog post.

3 Steps to Developing a Lifestyle that Promotes Weightloss

As I walked through the local grocery store on January 1, 2012, I noticed that the grocery store was advertising a wealth of weightloss products such as: Slim fast, protein bars, weightloss magazines, books and health & wellness drinks.

I thought to myself, I wondered, Why is it that the stores tend to promote weightloss at the beginning of the year? In fact, I believe that, in order to maintain a healthy weight; we must develop a life style that promotes weightloss.

Since 2006, I have bought many weightloss books and I have discovered many secrets to losing weight. Today, I am going to share with you 3 easy and natural ways to maintain a healthy body weight:

  1. Upon waking up in the morning, drink a glass of room temperature water. Drinking water upon waking up in the morning increases your metabolism, increases your energy and it promotes weightloss.
  2. Drink Green tea on a Daily basis. Studies show that Green Tea Consumption Enhances Exercise-Induced Abdominal Fat Loss in Overweight and Obese Adults.
  3. Walking. God gave us two legs so that we can move our bodies. Moreover, walking is the most natural way to maintain a healthy body weight. Also, it's not a very strenuous exercise and it also reduces your stress level. If you are not an outdoors person, buy a treadmill. Whatever you decide to do, walk at least 30minutes to 1-hour a day!

More Weightloss tips to come throughout the month of January. In fact, This month's theme is to inspire you to create a lifestyle that promotes a healthy weight..the Natural Way!
