Part 1 of Low Cost Ways to Improve Your Health, in which I talked about improving your health through food, and ways to afford it. In tonight's episode, Part 2, I talked about various ideas for exercising without buying expensive equipment, getting the effects of herbal supplements without spending $10-30 on a bottle of capsules, and I gave a list of basic kitchen staples that are among the lower-cost of the organic foods, and which will also fill you up without messing up your blood sugar, so you will feel like eating less, and you can save on food and medicine costs.
Listen to the show, then come back here to add any suggestions you may have on how to afford healthy food, exercise, and supplements. (I'm looking for tips here, not advertisements, self-promotion, or spam comments.) If your idea sounds good, I'll share it with all the listeners in a future podcast!

42 Ways the Body Responds to Rebounding
As always, please consult your licensed health care provider before making any changes to your exercise routine. Also, please be VERY sure to follow the directions on your rebounder. You must have two adults to open or close it (leave it open if there isn't always another adult around, and just fold the legs only). This isn't meant for children. It's not a toy, so if you allow your children on it, you do so at your own (and their) risk!
I hope you enjoy rebounding as much as I do.

You've come to the right place. Our culture wants to stuff highly processed,chemical-filled "foods" down our throat, then when our bodies begin to break down, the answer is supposed to be throwing more chemicals, in the form of prescription drugs, at our poor malfunctioning bodies. It is no wonder that we have the worst rates of obesity, diabetes, depression, and nearly every other illness than ever before. While we all want conventional medical treatment when it is necessary, do we really want doctors prescribing drugs or recommending surgery when various changes in our nutrition or exercise routines will accomplish the same thing?
And why do doctors refuse to even consider alternative therapies or herbal remedies, even when conventional studies have shown them to be safe and effective? Could it be because chamomile tea companies don't pay kickbacks to doctors the way that pharmaceutical companies do? Or because their medical school education focused on drugs and surgery nearly to the exclusion of any natural remedies, and they feel woefully inadequate to recommend anything natural?
Now, I am not an expert on health, nor am I any kind of licensed health care practitioner, and I cannot diagnose, treat or cure any disease. However...
What I can do is share the information that I've learned over the years with you. Armed with that information, you can do your own research, then take it to your licensed health care providers and with their guidance, make positive, natural changes in your health.
That is what my podcast, and this website, is all about. It will bring you an abundance of alternative health information on herbal remedies, energy healing, natural nutrition and weight loss, and a variety of other topics for those who want to use natural means to rise up and take back your health!
