New Facebook Page

I’ve made a Facebook page finally. Give me a follow if you’d like to stay updated that way! It has a measly 0 followers currently, as it is brand spanking new. I’ll be using it to advertise events and communicate more effectively with people asking questions!  

Pregnancy Diet

First off, I’m not a doctor. I’m going to write what worked for me and what I believe is a good idea. I’ll write out why, and you guys can make up your own minds, and do your own research. Here’s the diet. It’s the same as the usual diet.

Quick Update – Feb 1, 2018

Hey everyone! Dad talked about my blog on Joe Rogan, which is awesome. So now there are a bunch of questions I want to get to and people I need to get back to but first: I started working for Dad. Booking events, kind of doing managerial type stuff because he’s swamped. The last month has been INSANE. His days are booked solid. I’m trying to free up some of his time. I fractured my arm 2 weeks ago (this Read More

Patreon

Hi Everyone, I’ve made myself a Patreon account and linked to it. I have some rewards on there but I’m still going to continue writing like I usually do. Nothing will be “made to pay” or anything. I’ve always been irritated reading blogs that are supposed to be helping people and when you come to the useful information you have to pay for it. I made the account in the hopes that I can switch from my part-time job to Read More

Infrared Saunaing – Basically The Greatest Thing Ever

When I react to something, I use an infrared sauna. I’m super lucky to have access to one. I would say it improves my mood by about 20%, as well as energy levels, and gets rid of the itching I get from these reactions as well. I sit in there for 30-40 minutes. I’m not sure if it’s removing the toxins that make me feel better, or if it does some sort of mitochondrial invigoration… Christine is my dad’s grad student Read More

Do You Suffer From Cracked Heels?

Good news! Your feet aren’t dry. It’s not from wearing “bad shoes”, they don’t need moisturizer, and Lufa isn’t going to help. Fortunately, it’s easier than that. This actually wasn’t even a food problem for me. It was a chemical problem. Soaps made by the companies Palmolive (and I also believe Dove), seriously irritate my skin. Mom and Dad both had cracked heels too which resolved when they changed shampoos and soaps. I just suggested to one of my friends that Read More

Filtered Water

I used to scoff at filtered water, and I actually liked the taste of tap water better. I haven’t done much research into why you should drink filtered water but I can tell you from personal experience, it upsets my stomach. Even worse, I made a bunch of chicken broth when I was pregnant to freeze, and for the first batches, I used regular tap water in it. I figured because I was boiling it, it would get rid of Read More

Hangover Cure

Seriously. I’ve been taking this since I was binge drinking in University, you can go to their website and look at the studies on rats. If it works on rats, it works on me. I take 2 pills per 3 drinks. If you’re in Canada: www.dhmdepot.com Or if you’re in the states you can go here for the ones I’ve tried. These completely remove nausea associated with a hangover. They apparently stop liver and brain damage as well (which is Read More

What Vitamins and Supplements to Take

I’ve had a bad reaction to a couple of multivitamins (most of them contain soy derivatives), so I don’t take a multivitamin. Beware off prenatal vitamins too. If you end up being extremely sensitive, steer clear of either. Just so everyone knows, unfortunately, none of these reactions are caused by low vitamins or minerals. I had all those checked out first. I was particularly wondering about B12. But, alas, it’s a much more complicated problem than that. I’ve done vitamin Read More

Newest attempts at food reintroductions

cocoa – Didn’t seem to do much, but completely got rid of my appetite. On this diet, there isn’t much we’re eating that’s high calorie, so getting rid of your appetite isn’t a great idea. It didn’t seem to do anything else negative though! So cocoa seems okay. Remember to get sugar free and organic. stevia – gross. I hate it. I think it made me feel weird, but I also don’t like it so I’m not going to try Read More
