Exploring Alternative Healing
If you’re a follower of my Facebook page (and I hope that includes all of you!), then you’re familiar with my Home Remedies Mondays, where every Monday, I discuss natural ways to help ease the symptoms of some of life’s most common ailments – often with items you may have sitting on your kitchen shelf!

In this blog post, I thought I would share some other forms of natural healing, which I’ve found to be very beneficial to my own health. Alternative medicine has grown faster than any other form of healthcare. Nearly 40 percent of adults have used some form of alternative therapies.

Ensuring Food Safety
Summertime is full of picnics, BBQs and outdoor eating. This can bring with it some challenges it keeping food safe. Most of us know to avoid the mayonnaise-laden potato salad that’s been sitting on the picnic table for too long. But what about keeping other foods safe?

Other bearers of illness-producing bacteria may surprise you. Take deli meats, for example. Cold cuts and hot dogs can be contaminated with dangerous bacteria if not packaged properly. Food contamination can happen at any stage of the process – from growing to processing to shipping to preparing. It’s a particular challenge with foods that aren’t cooked enough to help kill bacteria. And while food poisoning is nasty for anyone.

Gluten-free: A fad or something else?
These days, you can buy an incredible variety of products that are gluten free, from bread  and cookies to pizza crust and more.  Even products that neverhad gluten are now including “gluten free” on their packaging. The multi-billion dollar gluten free industry is aimed the exploding number of people who are cutting gluten out of their diets. In a recent study, more that 25 percent of Americans reported they were trying to cut down on gluten or avoid it altogether. Gluten is  a complex of proteins found in grains such as  wheat, barley, and rye.  It’s a spongy substance that helps dough to rise. For people with celiac disease, eating foods containing gluten can cause severe bloating, fatigue and diarrhea. Celiac disease, a  gastrointestinal autoimmune condition, is thought to be largely  under-diagnosed. It can develop at any time and at any age. Researchers believe that up to 3  million Americans have celiac disease – but most don’t know they have it.

Senior Discounts - Speak up, Save money!
My mother always told me that in order to get what you want in life, you have to ask for it. When it comes to saving money, asking for senior discounts can pay off in a big way! We’ve all seen senior discounts advertised at places like movie theaters and National Parks. (The America the Beautiful senior pass, for example, offers folks 62 and older a lifetime pass to more than 2,000 national parks and recreation sites for a one-time payment of just $10.) But did you know there are hundreds of restaurants, retailers, grocery stores and airlines that offer discounts every day? You may not know about them because many companies don’t advertise this fact. For instance, restaurants like Denny’s, Applebee’s and IHOP offer senior discounts?  Almost all major airlines and rent-a-car companies offer discounts. Some companies – like Hallmark, Albertson’s and Hy-Vee – offer their discounts only on certain days of the week.
