Xylitol is Poisonous to Dogs!

Welcome to the newest issue of Natural Insight!

Natural Insight to Herbs

Have you ever felt confused or lost when learning about herbs?

Maybe you have a shelf full of herbal books and don’t know where to begin. Or you’re sick and tired of the “one size fits all” information on the Internet.

LearningHerbs has just released an AWESOME new training video – and it’s free.

You’ll learn the cure for information overload, and how to match the herb to the PERSON and not the illness.

It’s powerful training… and it’s 100% free. What a fun and easy way to learn about herbs!

The Herbal Compass

Natural Insight Recipe

Here's a simple non-toxic recipe for a sparkling clean floor that's safe for all hard surfaces!

Grab your mop bucket and add:

1 cup white vinegar- 1 tablespoon dish soap- 1 cup baking soda- then add two gallons hot water and mop away!

Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil if you like but even if you don't have no worries about the vinegar smell. It will dissipate as it dries!

Natural Insight for Health

Did you know that being dehydrated can make you think you're hungry? Dehydration can cause a whole multitude of symptoms including fatigue, brain fog, aching or cramping muscles and even dizziness. Do yourself a favor and drink a large glass of water right now!

Drink up!

Natural Insight for Pets

Beware of Xylitol! Xylitol is a sugar alcohol commonly used in candy and chewing gum (and some other products, such as peanut butter.) It is also found in some pharmaceuticals and oral health products such as chewable vitamins and throat lozenges. It can also be used in home baking but did you know that just three grams of Xylitol can KILL a 65-pound dog? Some chewing gum contains so much xylitol that if your dog picks up and eats an already been chewed piece of gum off the sidewalk it can have deadly effects! If you think your dog has consumed sugarless gum or any other product containing Xylitol, call your veterinarian immediately. Just a reminder that what we eat is not always good for your pets.

Natural Insight for the Mind

Stop any negative thoughts right now! I'm a firm believer that our thoughts become things. Whenever any self doubt pops into your brain or when you're trying to fall asleep and worries are running rampant through your head make a positive mantra for yourself and repeat, repeat, repeat! One of mine is: "I am healthy, happy, wealthy and wise."

Until next time,
