Savvy Moms Want to Know!!

Do you, as a savvy mom, ever find yourself asking these questions?

  • Why does my family seem to be sick a lot, especially my kids?
  • How long will my kids have to live with these allergies?
  • Should we really be eating organic, and what about gluten and dairy?
  • And then there is the vaccination question that keeps coming up: Are they really safe for my child?

Today’s savvy moms are asking these and other questions centered on keeping their families healthy and progressing forward. (I should say “savvy parents” but realistically moms make most of the health and diet decisions for the family!)

About 14 years ago as a nurse (and a mom myself), I started learning about the health risks of refined carbohydrates (like white flour and processed foods). I was blown away by what I discovered and I honestly felt somewhat betrayed! I naively kept thinking, “Good grief, I work in a medical teaching hospital. If this was all really that big a risk, I would know about it.” As I began to dig deeper, I was shocked at the solid science that was out there that confirmed it — YES indeed, refined carbohydrates was associated with increased risk of diabetes, heart disease and a whole host of other diseases and health problems! All I could think was – why didn’t anybody tell me that in nursing school?? Why wasn’t this reaching the people that it could help the most like you, me and the experts we consult for our health questions?

Honestly, I have always been someone that wants to give people the benefit of the doubt, but as I have investigated answers to the questions that all moms ask, I am alarmed and concerned over the information that the public is given – and not given!  At times I even get downright angry! Unfortunately, many well-meaning and well-educated medical professionals are also being pulled in by wolves in sheep’s clothing. People should be given the facts, the full truth and then decide for themselves regarding these issues.

What are the answers?  I could write pages and pages of answers, but instead I want to direct you to a new documentary called “BOUGHT – The Truth Behind Vaccines, Big Pharma & Your Food” that is free online until March 6,2015. I watched it and felt strongly compelled to share it with everyone that is interested in learning more about these topics. I encourage you to take the time to view it and share this link with your friends:

I’m suggesting that you watch the entire film, not because I want you to believe a certain way, but because I feel like it is well done and presents information that will help everyone to make informed decisions — not only for yourself, but for your children and families.

I’d love to hear your comments on our truehealthmatters Facebook page. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me at As always, hoping your day is blessed with happiness and health.
