Is it true that eating raw weed has a number of health benefits? Let’s find out. Wherever you go on the internet, the cannabis debate is hotly contested. The majority of liberals found online argue that the many laws around using cannabis were set up before much was really known about the drug. Each website I looked at boasted more miraculous results than the last. So can it really help? I saw so many posts on this, but when I clicked through to their sources,

Here Is What a Lack of Sleep Does to Your Body – and How to Avoid It

Lack of sleep has some long-term effects to our brain function and overall wellbeing. As a writer, I've had my share of late nights before early mornings. I think we've all done it at some point. We tell ourselves, “Just one more episode/chapter.” or, “I'll stay for a little.” We mean well.  Then 5 hours later our eyes sting with the strain of keeping them open. The next day at work is no better. The morning is spent forcing our eyes to stay open while we

Monday to Friday. 9 to 5. That's the dream. Eight work hours. Although, it's not always 9 to 5. Not really. You could just be sitting down after dinner and you get an email. Suddenly you're on your laptop for an hour or two trying to sort it out before you get to work the next day. You shut the computer down and go to bed around 1 a.m., partially wishing you were back to shift work with no thought of a company email. But

What Is a Ketogenic Diet and When It Is Right for You

By | 2017-09-05T00:29:08+00:00 January 28th, 2017|Categories: Food and Nutrition, Lifestyle|Tags: , , |

Basically speaking, a ketogenic diet is packed full of healthy fats while cutting down on carbohydrates, sugar, and protein. The idea is that your body enters 'ketosis' – where your body burns fat as its main fuel source, instead of sugar. By relying on fats instead of sugar, the way your body processes sugar and carbohydrates changes. BY managing your intake this way, you feel fuller for longer, and this can all have a positive impact on a number of conditions. 1. Epilepsy This diet

Have you ever been in the process of giving up sugar? I have fond memories of helping my mother bake. I would sit at her side and help mix the ingredients, and even share the empty icing bowl with my brothers as most children do. We always had cold sugary pop in the fridge and a sweet treat for after dinner. So looking back, it's not a surprise when I say that many members of my family now have Type 2 Diabetes. This is a

Why Washing Hair Every Day Is a Waste of Time

If you stop washing hair on a daily basis, it will have some benefits to your hair's health that you may not have thought of. I have really curly hair, so trying to make it look nice without washing my hair is a nightmare. While styling your hair when it's dry is best, it just makes my hair look like frizz. So I wash, dry, and then add heavy amounts of mousse and fixing serum etc. I know this is not the best route for
