80 Percent Of Adults Will Experience Adrenal Fatigue!

Did you know that 80 percent of adults will experience adrenal fatigue in their lifetime? Although this negatively affects the vast majority of the population, there is controversy within the medical community whether this condition is a legitimate diagnosis or not. This disagreement only arises due to the inability to identify and treat it in a uniform way.

Natural Allergy Relief How to make- buy Nettle Leaf Tea (like what's pictured above).  Purchase local honey from a farmer's market or local farmer.  Heat tea, add 1-2 tsp of local honey and enjoy.

This defensive mechanism prevents people from eating or picking the plants. Nettle tea can be quite strong, and has a rapid effect on the body, primarily due to the flavonoids, carotenoids, vitamins, and minerals found in the plant. As compared [...]
