The Homeopathic Approach...

etting Started with Homeopathy

Homeopathy is an alternative form of medicine that has been used for thousands of years to treat everything from life threatening illnesses to the common cold. While many people used to modern medicine may find it suspicious, it is still one of the most used types of medical treatment worldwide and is steadily gaining popularity in the western world.

Homeopathic medicine is based on three basic principles. The biggest principle of homeopathy is that like treats like. Instead of treating based on the disease doctors think you have, treatment is done based on the symptoms you know you have. The second principle is that there is only one treatment, not two or even ten like a traditional doctor might give you. The third principle is that everything is given in extremely small doses.

To treat yourself homeopathically, you must figure out all the symptoms. Once you know your symptoms, you find a substance that causes the exact same set of symptoms and take a small amount of it. Because you are only taking a very small amount, the substance not only doesn’t harm you, it’s said to cure you, generally long term or even permanently.

When most people hear about homeopathy, their initial reaction is “no way!” Treating symptoms with something that causes your symptoms seems totally counterintuitive, but it’s a concept that’s used in modern medicine as well as more ancient cures. Shots commonly used to treat allergies contain a small amount of whatever you’re allergic to. Many vaccines contain a small amount of the disease they’re designed to protect against.

While homeopathic medicine is not only considered effective, it has many benefits over modern medicine. Like many other natural medical treatments, most homeopathic remedies are totally natural. While this doesn’t necessarily make them safe, these remedies tend to cause fewer side effects, have little drug interactions, and are generally better for your overall health.

Homeopathic medications are also considered better for your body because they work with it. Many modern medicines work to suppress symptoms like fever or coughing. These symptoms are the body’s natural ways to get rid of disease. Instead of suppressing symptoms, homeopathic medicine works to cure the problem itself while addressing the specific symptoms.

When the right treatment is found, homeopathy is considered very effective. The big problem is that just like there are thousands of prescriptions and over the counter drugs, there are also thousands of homeopathic remedies as well. And if you don’t pick exactly the right one, it won’t work.

While you can buy homeopathic remedies over the counter, just like herbal and other alternative medicines, that doesn’t mean it’s 100% safe to treat yourself. If you’re serious about this treatment you should speak to a doctor who has experience in alternative medicine or even see a specialist in the area.

Some ideas about dinner you may not think about. What a great concept this program is!

Facts That Can't Be Ignored...

- The average parent spends 38.5 minutes per week in meaningful conversation with their children. (A.C. Nielsen Co.)

- Family dinners are more important than play, story time and other family events in the development of vocabulary of younger children. (Harvard Research, 1996)

- Frequent family meals are associated with a lower risk of smoking, drinking and using drugs; with a lower incidence of depressive symptoms and suicidal thoughts; and with better grades in 11 to 18 year olds. (Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, 2004.)

- Adolescent girls who have frequent family meals, and a positive atmosphere during those meals, are less likely to have eating disorders. (University of Minnesota, 2004)

Take A Moment To Reflect...

▪ Do you struggle with what to feed your family each evening?

▪ Do you waste too much of your precious time making several trips to the grocery store each week?

▪ Do you spend $200 at the grocery store every week and still not seem to have anything in the house to prepare a healthy meal?

▪ How much money would you have if you put the money you normally spend eating out each month into a jar instead? What would you do with that extra money?

▪ How often does your entire family gather around the security of your dinner table to enjoy a home-cooked meal, relax, and share about your day?

For your skin...

As we age, we often notice those fine lines, wrinkles, discolorations... But, some of the OTC and in office medical procedures are pretty scary, right? I mean, really, you are going to inject a parasite or an infectious material into your skin? You are willing to put harsh chemicals that EAT a layer of your skin on? Wow. I am not sure I am ready for all of that. But, if you are considering chemical peels, botox, surgery... You may want to read the following articles:

Are peels safe?

Skin Care Myths

Free EO Body lotion sample:

You may decide to go with a more natural, less harsh approach to your beauty and skin care. The trend in the past decade has been towards a more natural, glowing skin. I.e.- the downpour of the mineral makeup, the organic make ups, etc. Well, how about some natural bath, body and lotion products. Visit my shop at http://www.MommyTyme.etsy and check out the new line of butter bars. These bars keep you hydrated with organic high grade cocoa butter, while producing a sensual bath or shower experience with rich lather, luscious skin softeners such as jojoba oil, aloe, and organic almond oil, followed with long lasting subtle fragrances (freesia, Angel, Secret Crush, or grapefruit). Or, if you order directly from the blog by sending an email to with Butter bar in the subject- I will give you the bar for 10% off Etsy price (that is 2.25!) What a steal!

A Business of Partying? Make money doing what you love to do?


The purpose of my blog, A New You, is to help women make changes within themselves that they have wanted to do, but have not had the right resources or tools to achieve. This is not only weight management, health and beauty tips, but financial security, self esteem and achieving those dreams that you may have never thought possible. I have been spending a lot of time lately researching and looking into ways for women to achieve financial independence and employment security in these tough economic times. I wanted to present these to my readers and offer them as hope and opportunities for their future!


Recently I received an email discussing a new opportunity for women (or men) to become business franchise owners with a new company, One Hour Parties. Well, with a name like that I had to check it out. I was absolutely amazed at this idea! One Hour Parties is a party planning business that supplies all the fantastic amenities anyone could possibly need to throw a fantastic themed party! I am not kidding! These kits come with everything you need to literally be the most talked about party hostess at your office, in your neighborhood, amongst your husband's football fanatic friends, etc. This has to be one of the most creative ideas for a new business I have seen in a long time. And, it is affordable for just about every budget. There are themed parties that come with all the fixin's for as little as 2.95 per person! When is the last time you could throw a party for that kind of money?


Carnival themed party! Cotton Candy, sno cones, servers and more…


So, what comes in the kits you're asking? Well, for example, the Smoothie p arty at 2.95 a person (what a fun idea this one is!) comes with (I actually copied and quoted the following directly from the web site so you would believe me!)

" Party includes: 1 hour of serving by party staff, smoothie blenders (2), ice, fruit smoothie mix (strawberry and mango), 8-ounces per serving, 8-ounce cups, straws, lime green napkins, tropical fruit table cover, extension cord, and set up. Customer provides table and standard outlets. Allow up to one hour for set up. "

So, for 2.95 a person someone comes to your home, does all the work and you come out looking like the queen of party planning! How much better does it get. Ideas for parties include sundae party, New Year's Party, Mardi Gras Mix up, Football parties, children's parties and so many more. You can also customize your own party!


Now you're hooked on the idea, how do you become part of this new and growing company? Well, there is a franchise opportunity available, now. Once this company really starts to take off, franchises will likely be limited. But at this ground floor stage, One Hour Parties is actively seeking new franchise owners throughout the US to participate and reap the rewards in this creative capital. Event Planning is a 500 billion dollar industry that is virtually recession proof (after all, even when we are broke, we still throw our kid's a birthday party! And One Hour Parties makes it affordable). One Hour Parties has everything you could imagine to offer from corporate or business luncheons, meetings, family celebrations, children's parties, religious milestones, sports, etc. There are even party platters, fruit trays, balloon centerpieces, flower arrangements, and more… Something for everyone and for every budget. This business does not cater to one type of customer; rather it focuses on making everyone a customer. The franchise program offers intensive training to its new franchise owners, on the spot assistance, field support, reference materials and operations manuals, work from home, set your own hours, and you have a team of professionals who WANT you to succeed available to you!


Sound interesting? Well, then check it out and see if One Hour Parties is the opportunity you have been looking for!

Mommy's Reviews you can Use

Getting your Finances under Control

So, what have changes have you made in the past few weeks? Simple ones, or life changing?

A few weeks ago I decided to work on health, weight, and body image issues. I have increased my daily exercise (although, I am not a fan of this), by walking more with my son. I have also done much more work in the yard than I had in the past few months. The garden had gotten out of control, my flowers were becoming overgrown and crowded, etc. So, I have really tried to focus on some issues that require me to be active. My goal is to continue to increase this activity daily. This week I am going to add a short walk down the block at my office. Now, this may not sound like much, but realistically if I commit to exercise 20 minutes, twice a day, it is likely I will quit. I think that is the key. Add small steps that are obtainable.

Another area I really wanted to focus on was getting my finances under control. That seems nearly impossible in this economy, right? Well a few simple steps can go a long way-
1. No frivolous spending- take my lunch instead of eating out, give up the cafe mocha every morning and only splurge once a week, no credit cards

Unfortunately our family has hit some tough times because my husband had been laid off for several months. Then once he was called back to work, he was injured. This makes things a little bit tougher, but I am determined to stay the course and make these changes.

If you are in over your head with credit card debt, there are some reliable and safe measures you can take.

First, cut up those cards. If you must have one, just keep one. Only for emergencies.
Second, look into some debt relief programs that can help you consolidate your debt and cut down on the interest. I am currently investigating the options available and will get back to you on some choices that may be helpful.
Third, write out your budget. Make sure you know exactly what you can pay each month on specific bills, and focus on those areas. For example, if you know that 200.00 month (which I think is super high) for the power bill is what you can realistically pay- then try to keep the power at that range. - How? do laundry twice a week instead of 4 times, shut lights off, change the a/c setting, shut off tv's, etc. Make a concentrated effort in those areas.

One thing that always creeps up on me is the debit card. I rarely carry cash, but I also do not track my debit expenses. If you are going to use the debit card, write down what you spend. Keep track of it closely. One bounced check or ISF can cost you 50.00 and raise your interest rates if you bounce it on a debt payment.

Over the course of the next few weeks, my focus will remain on the finances. I am a long way from satisfied with my debt/credit ratios, and I intend to work diligently to get these matters under control. I will share with you the measures I take to find some peace in this area.

One thing I want to remind everyone, is that worrying and crying over these issues is not going to help. In fact it is going to make it worse as you are eventually going to accept defeat and give up. That is not an option. There are solutions and we just need to find them through investigation, commitment and sharing.

If you have some tips or tricks you would like to share, please comment. Everyone here can feel free to talk openly and we are all grateful for any tidbit that gets passed our way.

So, stand firm this week and stick to your plans for a New You.
