What are Seed Oils & Why We Should Avoid Them

Seed oils include: Canola (Rapeseed) oil, Corn oil, Cottonseed oil, Soybean oil, Sunflower oil, Safflower oil, Rice bran oil, and Peanut oil.   In order to get these seeds into the form of an oil that is able to be used in food production/cooking, they have to go through a tremendous amount of chemical refining!  For example, […]

You Don’t Need To Be a Body Builder…BUT…

You could really, really benefit from lifting weights and/or doing some body weight exercises multiple times per week!  Let me share with you just a few benefits of gaining muscle mass on purpose as you age, this means everyone (ESPECIALLY if you’re a woman over 30)!!

Your Immune System is Amazing

We need to be reminded of this …AND… that we can crash our own immune systems by stress, being sedentary and the amount of sugar we eat.  So, if you’re sitting around watching the news, and drinking a Dr. Pepper because you’re truly fearful and stressed out over world events, just know that you’re NOT […]

Give Thanks in All Things

Few things are worth our time and effort more than creating a habit of gratitude.  Gratitude may come easier for some people than others, but I do whole-heartedly believe that if you choose it often enough, it starts to change you from the inside.  Life can be hard; it can be inconvenient and downright grueling at times, but […]

Thankfully Clearview will be open with our normal schedule, and we will […]

To What/Whom Do We Give Opportunity?

That may sound like a funny question, but as I was studying this weekend a particular subject that was really strong on my heart, a certain verse stood out so profoundly to me.  I’d like to share it with you for your consideration.  Ephesians 4:17-32 is well worth reading and pondering; I’ll link it in the online […]

If You Give a Healthy Person a Drug…

If you give a health person a drug — what do YOU think would happen?  Would that medication actually make a health person healthier?  I wonder why we believe giving a sick/unhealthy person more drugs will cause them to return to health?  Have you ever really thought about that?  When was the last time you heard of someone who […]

Blue Light and Sleep Cycles

 As part of the full spectrum of sunlight, blue light helps to regulate your natural sleep and wake cycles, known as your circadian rhythm.  It suppresses the production of melatonin, your sleep hormone, and stimulates the release of cortisol, boosting alertness and keeping you awake.
