The main thing to note with anemia is that it’s best to closely monitor your levels with a health care provider (every 3-6 months, or so). For a complete list of iron food sources, which are usually more effective than supplements, this post has all the details. But for a non-constipating iron supplement source, iron bisglycinate is relatively easy on the GI tract.
Natural Cleaning Products:
We like having an arsenal of ingredients at home to use for everything which includes vinegars (apple cider vinegar or white), tea tree, oil, baking soda, witch hazel, borax, essential oils, dried lavender (for mothball prevention and as a dryer sheet replacement), Dr. Bronner’s castile soaps, and microfiber cloths. Brittany loves these wool dryer balls for maintaining clothing new-ness.
- Room freshner: essential oils and water in spray bottle
- Furniture polish: 4-to-1 ratio of olive oil and lemon oil/vinegar.
- Dishwasher solution: Megan does Dr. Bronner’s orange soap and Alex uses this mix (that works for hard water)
- Floor cleaner recipe
- Fruit and Vegetable Rinse
- Scouring Powder
- Chemical Free Disinfecting Wipes
- Glass and Window Cleaner
We love water with himalayan pink salt, coconut water, sparkling (mineral) water, and homemade gatorade mixes (like this one by Laura from myradicalroots.com). We also talk about considerations with water such as the sustainability factor, timing around meals, and our thoughts on alkaline water.
