Pot Luck

Hello everyone!

I wanted to put this up to let everyone know about the pot luck that we host at Ozark Herb and Spice every second Friday of the month at 6:30pm.  John Robertson is responsible for creating and orchestrating the event. The goal is to get like-minded health conscious people together and share creative food recipes and ideas, provide support for each other, and share the success stories that are a natural byproduct of a simple and healthy lifestyle.

The pot luck is free for all to attend, don’t worry about bringing food the first time around, just come and meet the people and enjoy food. This is a peripheral program in association John’s  Simple Real Food class where teaches people the importance of eating real, nutritionally dense food without making life complicated in the process.

SimpleRealFood is all about using the best real foods available to eat nutritionally. It is scientifically proven that, in order for you to feel and perform at your peak, you should eat real foods... but the question always comes down to how?
Thats what we do. When you take a SimpleRealFood class, you will learn what real food is, how to shop for it, and how to prepare simple foods that will benefit you physically to help you feel and perform better than you ever knew you could.

Ginger Bath - The fever reducer

 Rebbecca's Detox Bath

 Rebbecca's Detox Bath

Well friends it’s no secret Flu season is upon us and going full swing, ordinarily we are very blessed and miss out on most of whatever new bug going around has to offer. Unfortunately this time my 7 year old son Ever fell ill and has been bed ridden for the last few days. As you can imagine for a 7 year old voluntarily deciding to stay in bed for 3 days means that he feels pretty bad. Aside from the normal Flu stuff, nausea, aches and pains, loss of appetite, our little guy had a very high fever and this proved to be the most difficult aspect to get under control.  I wanted to share with everyone how we managed to keep Ever from the emergency room.

Ginger, I know super complicated right? To be more specific I used “Rebbecca’s Detox Bath”, this stuff is amazing at dropping a fever and generally detoxing the body quickly. Best of all it’s made from stuff you probably have around the house, Ginger, Sea Salt and Baking Soda.  You can use Ginger by itself in a warm to hot bath and it will work, any ginger is fine even the off the shelf stuff for baking from your local mega retailer but there is something about these three products together that really do the trick.

"The proof is in the pudding they say", we were able to drop his fever from as high as 104f back down to 101.5f or lower with a good 30-45 minute soak. If you thought they hated baths before try talking them into the 3rd long soak of the day when the fever is at its worst and they don’t even want to sit up but I’m convinced the simple ginger bath kept us from the emergency room or worse.

So that’s my simple solution to a potentially very serious problem, stop by and pick up a jar of Rebbecca's Detox or if you're brave mix up a batch for yourself.  

Thanks for reading and stay healthy my friends,
