Growing Up Herbal is an incredibly informative resource for natural living, Meagan Visser describes herself as “a registered nurse turned herbalist” and her site is a goldmine if you’re interested in homemade lotions, salves, preservation of herbs, holistic remedies and more.

Dr. Axe’s website is almost always the first listing when I google a holistic or natural remedy for anything. Dr. Josh Axe is a doctor of natural medicine, clinical nutritionist, and a doctor of chiropractic.

Bright Dawn Nutritional Therapy is run by Lucy, a Catholic colleague of mine who is a Certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. If you need professional help with hormonal or digestive problems, she can help unlock healing through food.

Heather at Mommypotamus is a great resource for natural health remedies and DIY remedies. She has several ebooks available, including one for non-toxic cleaners that are very popular.

Grass-fed gelatin is a fantastic, gut healing supplement. (Read why here). I use this brand to make homemade gummies and jello that my toddler and I both really enjoy. It just takes a couple tablespoons from the big canister to make a batch! Find the gelatin here and here is the 2.5 minute video that taught me how to make the jello!




If I want the same benefits of gelatin but without congealing, I use these grass-fed collagen peptides from Earthtone in smoothies. Find them here and my favorite smoothie recipe here.



Cod Liver Oil is incredibly beneficial for its high levels of vitamin A, vitamin D, and Omega3s. Here is whole list of amazing benefits. I usually grab my cod liver oil at Whole Foods, but you can also find the same brand here on Amazon, and here is their children’s version that I give Philomena.Long Header (7)
