Well, allergy season is upon us in Northern Michigan! Some of us struggled through the winter, with mold and dust exposures from long hours inside. Others of us had a short reprieve while pollen counts have been low. Still, the weather is changing, and with the warmer temperatures, so comes the increased pollen counts. Fear not! MCHM is here to offer some tips as to how you can beat this allergy season!
As some of you may know, I like a good app, one that has the perfect combination of innovation, ease of use and applicability. While the offerings may seem daunting, I’m here to offer a little guidance so you can dip your toes into the app water.
During these uncertain times, it is important now, arguably more than ever, that we all take a collective deep breath and allocate some of our time during this “new normal” to self care. In this spirit, we, at MCHM, will be curating some virtual/online options to help facilitate your self care journey!
March is Endometriosis Awareness Month, so in honor of one of the primary presenting symptoms of this condition (i.e. painful periods), we are showcasing Cramp Bark (Viburnum opulus).
It has been my goal for the last year, to offer a monthly series in which I showcase some of my favorite herbs/botanicals. I hope that I can continue this series, so you can familiarize yourselves with not only the traditional uses of these powerful botanicals, but also get an idea of what you need to watch out for in terms of health contraindications and misinformation.
