Sometimes I get asked the same question over and over again - "How did you get started with a more natural lifestyle?" And honestly, we're not completely there yet. I still have guilty pleasures like Oreo cookies, ramen noodles, and chocolate just to name a few (stop judging). The road to trying to live healthier hasn't been a bummer at all. In fact, I have really enjoyed it. It has caused me to do things I've never done before. It allows me to make home made things for my family, which I know they thoroughly enjoy. But most of all, it has caused me to realize that I can take control of my family's health, and ultimately, for almost all (non-life threatening) mishaps or sickness, I can tend to my family without ever having to step foot into a doctors office.

While I am for holistic medicine, please understand that I completely realize there may come a time when we have to make a visit to the doctor's office or ER. Though, I hope it isn't anytime soon.

Nonetheless, it's always the same look and questions, followed by the elephant in the room, "how do you afford it?"

Believe it or not, not everyone you know shells out an arm and a leg for a more natural lifestyle. We pay what we can and leave the rest for the following week or month. We do the things we can and we settle for that. Because in the long run, a few healthy changes are better than none!

Here are five quick and easy changes that you can make to promote healthy living in your home. Keep in mind that you might have some kick back and grumbling from others who might be living in your household, but eventually, they will come around...maybe!
