Lauren, author of Ginger is the New Pink: My journey towards healing with vegan whole foods, and editor at Crazysexylife.com returns to All Things Healing to share some of her experiences of keeping up with a healthy life for her and her baby on the way...

I'm 3 months pregnant and my doctor is encouraging me to get the flu shot. Is this safe for the baby?
Although we have all suffered from influenza (flu) one time or another, many people don't realize that the flu can be a severe illness...
Editor's Note: Dr. Feder does a good job of making you think in this article about the CDC recommendation of a flu shot during pregnancy. Flu shots contain mercury, yet they tell you to stay away from mercury ladened fish while pregnant. Mercury is a known neurotoxin that crosses the blood brain barrier (meaning it gets in the brain).

We all occasionally have glimpses and experiences of enlightenment, experiences of awe and grandeur in observing a sunset or listening to a symphony, of unconditional love for a partner or newborn baby, of gratitude in surviving an illness or accident, and of pure joy in just being alive.

If the answer is “yes,” then take everything you’ve been conditioned, brainwashed and spoon-fed into believing and toss it out the window, along with the baby and the bathwater...
Editor's Note from Sue O'Callahan: If you are stuck, complacent, uninspired, lacking in gratefulness or simply in dire need of change...read on. And then go for it!

Throughout life we will go through many changes—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually—yet the most dramatic occur during infancy and adolescence, the two periods where growth is the most rapid. In the first six months of life a human baby will develop more than at any other point in her life, gaining...
Editor's Note from Sophia Hansen: Dr. Steven Farmer's article is an important reminder of the only constant in life is change. When we're able to surrender to the natural changes that occur in our lives, we realize how much fuller our lives become. Dr. Farmer's article about Butterfly spirit helps give helpful tips for ourselves and our children to embrace changes instead of fearing them.
