Quinoa. The ‘Super’ Seed.

I’ve come across a few posts now of the many benefits of this magnificent seed. When cooked they transform into something of a puffy cous cous . Delightful to say the least & very earthy.

My two year old and I tried it for the first time today. Was interesting. She made a funny face but I’m sure she will grow to love it if I introduce it to her more often.

People like to see it as an alternative to rice.

A very wise alternative to rice I must say. It’s also popular with salads.

Just google it, you’ll be surprised what can be done with it!

Can’t believe I never knew about it, the more I grow in the world of healthy living, the more I unravel these wondrous secret ‘super’ foods which some, are completely oblivious exist.

We need to embrace these different sources. & not just go for what we’re used too.

Try New things, give it a go! What’s the worst that can happen eh?

That way our palates will open to all kinds of foods. & it’s a win win as along as it’s a healthy win! 😁😂

Antibiotics & Your Child. Do they do more harm than good? – Natural Alternatives.

I’m to young to have ever witnessed the 1960’s – 1970’s but historically, around this period. What is known as one of the most influential discoveries of all time, made it’s way on to the big, wide stage. Antibiotics.

Now without being to scientific about this (which I’m crap at anyway) I want to put across something which might in fact offend some people, but also shock them.

It’s to build awareness on the subject, not to force change, the change is in your hands only & is for you to decide. Hopefully with the evidence presented below you’ll have all that you need to truly understand what’s at stake and what’s not regarding antibiotics. I hope the alternatives are helpful to you, & you give them a go, you’ll be amazed.

so during the 60’s & 70’s antibiotics were given out like smarties around the globe. But before this period they were reserved for the most serious problems.

& today, only last year 34 million prescriptions for all types of antibiotic were given out last year in the UK.

Now there’s no way any one can say all them prescriptions, were prescribed correctly, for the right/suitable illnesses. & whether they worked is a different matter altogether, antibiotics do not treat everything.

It is a fact that a high majority of those antibiotics were wrongly prescribed.

Not just at the fault of the ’medical professionals’, but at the fault of the patients & their eager, desperate manner causing the effect of pressure towards the doctors/nurses to prescribe them. (this actually happens)

Today we have more knowledge, we have experience and we have studies.

Check out this stat which didn’t really surprise me:

Children who receive antibiotics in the first year of their lives are as much as 40% likely to develop eczema.

According to a new study in Britain.

Their little bodies simply can’t take it. The Antibiotic enters the gut, ( the only place it’s going ) and basically destroys the thing for an inch of it’s life.

Damaging the microflora (really important stuff) in turn, affecting the Childs maturing immune system. Making bacteria/illnesses a whole lot harder to fight in later life, leaving traces of weaknesses within the body.

Your gut is your second brain –

All health begins in the gut.

Says Maya Shetreat Klein ( doctor & author )

A Natural Alternative.

What if I told you there was another way of clearing your Childs ear infection, eye, mouth. A veruka to a wart. Spots & eczema. Anything contactable this is the boy.

Its called Collodiol Silver. Just a simple misty spray that solves your problems.

Its purely antibacteiral and 99.999% pure silver. & by god the results are just unimaginable. It really is a miracle and all natural!

Do you want to give your child the best healthy start in life you could possibly wish for? Do you want to trust something other than your doctors recommendation. Do you want to be in charge of what goes into your child’s system and of your own. To prevent the damaging consequences.

If the answers yes then try this out :- https://www.highernature.co.uk/Products/Colloidal-Silver-

I promise you, you will not be disppointed. Its expensive. But worth it. Remmber it works for you too. Not just for your little one.

Got a new piercing? Want to keep it from getting infected? Just a couple of sprays a day on to it!

I thought id add, this is not a marketing technique i havent got a contact in the agency or something, its nothing but heartfelt advice. & for more reviews just scroll down on the link to see everyone else’s miracle cure stories!

A cool damp cloth for high temperatures & relatable symptoms. Don’t give them a cold bath!

Vitamins (supplements) & plenty of fruit & veg!( healthy flow of nutrients will fuel the good cells to success)

& plenty of hot or cold fluids. ( water best )

Try to stay away from dairy, they could have a reaction to it, you could have a reaction to it. Some don’t even know it.

Just watch & wait.

Garlic ( another healing superhero ) just look it up.

Why does my doctor prescribe them to me if there are other ways? & if they are harmful.

1. It’s simple procedure/protocol following.

2. That’s what they’ve been taught to be the only cure since they started their medical professions. Their hardly going to suggest anything else but what they know to be effective. If a doctor was to recommend something else to you it would be them going against all they have learned to be medicine.

3. They could feel under pressure by you, the patient. This often happens in circumstances where antibiotics aren’t even needed, or in fact will not work on the particular problem e.g the flu.

4. They are just so popular, everyone turns to them. With the slightest symptoms. A doctor does nothing but hand out prescriptions all day every day, that of a GP at least. I’m not saying that’s all they do I’m just saying they do that a lot. & a lot more than necessary in my eyes & the eyes of a lot of others..

5. They actually work. In most cases that is. Symptoms vary, and the reactions you could face and your child could face are hardly pleasing.

But it kills the bad bacteria which effectively kills the illness. As effective this is, with the good bacteria being killed too, it could and most probably will put you in a worst state than what you already were.

Especially your gut.

But a high demand of people needing a specified cure, for everything. A demand in the need for people to be supported by the higher source. It’s just simply weighed up on an imaginary scale of bullshit, to see whether the good even just slightly outweighs the bad.

All this is no doubt a little confusing and maybe a shock to those who have always believed antibiotics to be safe & ‘risk free’.

Although why wouldn’t you think that in this day and age? There is bare public awareness, especially when using antibiotics on a regular basis. This should be highly discouraged and patients need to be made clear of the adverse affects and consequences of giving them to your child etc.

It’s fair to say the system in this manner is failing us.

Possibly you might still be thinking this is a tad extreme, but make the decision for yourself. Look it up, research it. You weigh it. Don’t let it be weighed for you.

It’s actually quite a big thing at the moment. It has recently been identified as a Global Public Health Crisis. Putting ( specifically ) – Antibiotic Resistance in the spotlight.

An Antibiotic resistance ( reaction ) which is quite common can lead to a life threatening bacterial infection & can be fatal.

A question you might ask yourself as a parent :

You might ask yourself this before giving your child antibiotics.

If I don’t give him/her antibiotics will they be in greater pain? Is it worth it in order to fight the infection/illness off as quick as possible and as painless as possible.

The answer to this is god no! Let nature do it’s thing, they’ll build stamina & the immune system will actually strengthen its barriers against further illnesses as being subjected to an illness and fighting it off naturally means the body is equipped to deal with it once more & will fight it with ease. As it has not been weakened by for example, antibiotics.

what’s your thoughts? I could write a book! Any help or more advice on this stuff just drop me a comment or an email:- I’ll be happy to answer them. sionedhaf26@hotmail.com

Thank you.


5 Reasons its best to cook fresh from scratch for you & you’r munchkins – From Day 1

Let’s imagine the imaginary circle of foods, you know the one. The one with all the reasonably bad foods in one category and the reasonably good foods in the other. Now weather this is the sort of thing to go by is up to you but personally, id go for instinct.

Trust yourself as a parent.

Do what you and only you thinks is best.

My advice is purely the advice and support I was so lucky and grateful to receive, being a young & new mother, making things a little less daunting for me.

Firstly, it’s important to remember do NOT get stressed over this stuff it’s actually pretty easy. It’s not about becoming crazy obsessed with what to avoid, it’s about embracing and celebrating all the delicious foods yourself and your child will discover.

Now I’ll put it bluntly, your childs future / health is most definitely in your hands. There’s no getting away from it. So it’s probably best to just accept it and move on.

So, from day 1 you want to familiarise them with good, nutritious foods. Grow some tomatoes ( the easiest things ever to grow) let them pick their own, and if their not able to, literally just make them available.

The variety of beautiful colours and textures you get from all kinds of vegetables, will give nothing but pleasure to them.

The sense of accomplishment and sheer delight when you prepare wholesome, fresh food for them will be worth it, I promise.

& If you don’t like veg, just watch as they learn and grow to absolutely love and demolish them.

So here’s the 5 main reasons why it’s best for you and your little humans:

1. Quite simply, home made food just tastes better. Prepacked baby food nowadays are pretty good, if you go for the right one’s (be careful). But all are relatively bland and sludgy in my opinion. It’s like giving the pizza from the night before a quick wizz and then serving it.

2. Making your own food means you are in control! You judge the freshness, taste, ingredients, you know what’s gone in and what hasn’t. Take charge momma. Your little one will thank you for it, and you’ll most definitely thank yourself. Us mothers deserve an occasional tap on our own backs now and again for how awesome we are.

3. It’s all round cheaper, people have the idea that to make a healthy meal your spending ridiculous amounts. This is a horrible myth and is most definitely WRONG. Your paying for raw invredients, not packaged/manufactured products. You can save money by cooking fresh too, by freezing leftovers etc.

4. If your cooking for the family or yourself and your child, which is the practical option. They get to eat what you eat and the connection you’ll both feel is ammense. Sharing meals is very much important in establishing good eating habits.

Healthy baby = a healthy you

5. Cooking is one of the most naturally creative and inspiring things you can do for yourself and your child. With a day filled with utter chaos and mayhem from childcare or work or whatever demands life throws at you. Cooking a warm and loving meal (this does not mean spectacular, we are not preffesional cooks here just mothers, with hearts) in the kitchen and then sharing it with your loved one’s, brings valuable focus and fulfilment to you all.

Dont have the time?

Find it.

You’ll love it.

& so will they.How do you find cooking from scratch? Is it convenient for you as a family? Do you love it as much as I do? Let me know in the comments.


Nature vs The Modern Day World

So as a newbie to the blogging world, I’ve decided to begin with something so very simple and that’s just the meaning of my personal yet, not so personal blog to be.

As you can see my logo is a picture of my daughter, Aiyana. She’s 2 and is the most busiest, healthiest, demanding thing you can ever imagine. Its hard, and I mean hard, if your someone who hasn’t got the mental agility to handle situations of intense screaming and moaning constantly over things such as not being able to pull a sock of quick enough, then please think DEEPLY about having one of your own.playingBut the most remarkable thing about being a mother set aside the poo & pee tolerance you acquire after a while, is the chance you get to watch your child grow, independently, their minds, so close to nature yet so far away.

This is because we don’t give them the chance to perform things their own way, I try to remind myself, that through instincts, we learn.We do not and should not learn through the mother next door, who won’t let her child play in the mud because it’s ‘disgusting behaviour’ with the  idea that a child should be cared for, not left to run riots.

This is not neglect, and you can hardly call a child a rioter.                                                             It’s natural, and a natural lifestyle is one of the BEST things for your children, take their shoes of, let them run naked, let them be free to pick as many flowers and bugs as they want. Obviously try to watch they don’t eat one, but who even cares? It’s where we are from, we are nature, embrace it, don’t shy away from it because of modern-day opinions and judgements. Watch their personalities grow into confident, eager, wild little lions.

You got a clean and tidy baby? well good for you!

So have I, for 0.5 minutes of the day.

My passion just like many others is, nature. Isn’t it just the most amazing  and satisfying thing an individual can ever encounter. Many would say we take it for granted, or we don’t look after it and the worlds going to end bla bla bla.

Although it’s important to ensure we preserve nature and its species to the best of our ability e.g recycling etc ;

What I want to get through to my readers is that we are not doing enough to make the most out of the magnificent sources of the earth we live in.We don’t trust in it, this is due to a huge amount of lack of knowledge and generations of certain beliefs being passed down to one and another. The world around us is developing day by day, through the use of prescription drugs (antibiotics), birth control e.g the implant, ‘miracle’ creams and potions, sleeping tablets & keep me awake for 7 weeks tablets. (steroids, big no no )

If we do trust in it, the majority of us purchase uncertified products unlikely to make much of a difference, i can’t stress the importance in buying products with 100% or 98-99% quantity of natural, un-harmful content (usually plant-based).

We rely on these things to help run our lives more smoothly and to help us when were unable to help ourselves.



But what if we can help ourselves? What if I told you that there were other ways to fight your infection or your rash or even your unsettling, troubled mind.

Have we all become to reliant on these potentially harmful and ‘unnatural’, in most instances ‘unnecessary’ products of our every day life? Throughout my journey as a blogger I will answer these questions but concentrating not only on the harmful products of our generation but the other aspects of our lives and of our children’s lives that may or may not be affected, that’s up to you though.

No one can tell you what to do with your own children or your own body, its your life, make it whatever you want. But to be able to weigh up the good and the bad is something we all, as humans should try to understand, i think its important to highlight the perceptions and ideas people have, regarding certain lifestyle choices.

For example, tap water, generations of efficient running water which we are all massively lucky to have, im sure. But is it pure, is it actually clean?

The most important source in order for our survival and for our bodies to thrive, should we not be worried what else is in it? is that little expense (spring and/or mineral water) to ensure its purity and cleanliness not worth it?

Follow my blog for a more in-depth analysis and possible conclusion to this unpopular question.  Why is it unpopular? because it’s water, practically endless amounts of it flowing through our taps, individuals from less advantaged countries walk miles for this luxury.

‘Ungrateful’, ‘snooty’ or just careful?
