A Note from Val - Loving the NNY Weather

We had nothing short of a miracle here in NNY for weather these last few days. It felt like we were away on vacation without having to leave home.

Sunny days in the 70's and 80's is unheard of this time of year. 50's and rain, or even snow, is the norm.

People took full advantage of the chance to take out their motorcycles, bicycles and convertibles.

It was great to wear shorts and a tee-shirt, take a long walk, and sit out on the deck relaxing in the sunshine.

Budding lilac bushes, greening grass and cheery dandelion flowers brightened the neighborhood. No one dared complain about how hot it was! My husband was given fair warning, but even I was tempted once or twice!

The fair weather also gave us the much needed opportunity to air out the house for several hours each day.

Featured Article - The Greatest Health Risk of the 21st Century?

Indoor air can be five times more polluted than outside air. Some experts call it the greatest health risk of the 21st century.

Over 3000 people a year die of lung cancer caused by second hand smoke. Many others suffer from chemical sensitivities, allergies, asthma, and illnesses caused by toxic indoor environments.

Quick Health Tip - Make Friends with the Dandelion

Did you know that the common dandelion is a master herbal medicine? Instead of poisoning your yard to get rid of this gem, it would gladly stay and become your herbal ally.

The flowers, leaves and roots have lots of vitamins, minerals and healing compounds. You can eat the greens, make dandelion flower wine, and tincture the roots to make a gentle liver tonic.

Make a tasty mineral rich vinegar. Pack a jar with chopped clean roots and leaves. Fill with apple cider vinegar. Infuse in sealed jar for several weeks. Pour liquid into a bottle. Enjoy!

Additional Resources - Your Opinion Wanted

Please take a minute to answer a few questions on the opinion poll in the Members Area.

You may also respond directly to this newsletter. Tell me know what you'd like to see more of. What is your biggest wellness challenge? Then I'll know what to include on the website, in the members area, and in the ezine.

I'm thinking of writing the ezine as a series by theme. For example, several months may be devoted to dealing with stress, healing thoughts and emotions, or spiritual healing. Your feedback will help me pick the best theme.

I'll send another reminder shortly, in case you didn't get to reply yet. Thanks for participating. Password: members

Until next time - enjoy the fresh air of spring.
