Natural Lifestyle Tips From Boholistic Mom:

  • Fertility Journey – Begin Moving Forward Here

    Fertility Journey – Begin Moving Forward Here

    This may sound strange in the context of fertility, but I want to congratulate you for beginning your fertility journey.  No matter where you are in your awareness of your body and whether you have been labeled with infertility or more information on fertility, you are taking a monumental step toward reproductive health by declaring that you are in charge of your fertility.  My goal is for you to know how your body works, make informed …Read More »
  • My Real Food Timeline – How It All Started

    My Real Food Timeline – How It All Started

    My Real Food Timeline I started this Boholistic Mom website in 2013 to reach out to my friends, family, and any of those who were interested in real food like I was.  Yet my real food timeline and journey started many years before that point.  So many people get bogged down and frustrated when they think about all the different changes they could made and maybe should make, but when you realize that life is a process it isn’t …Read More »

  • Fertility Health Check – How healthy are you?

    Fertility Health Check – How healthy are you?

    As I have studied and explored the world of fertility health, one thing I have realized is that many women have no idea what factors in their lives could impact their fertility.  Many times when we realize that we are having fertility difficulties, we run to the doctor to be officially diagnosed as “infertile.”  What if before the two year point, women had the opportunity to take an objective look at their fertility health and begin to intentionally make …Read More »

  • What is a Doula & Why You Need One

    What is a Doula & Why You Need One

What is a Doula? A doula is by historical Greek definition a “women’s servant.”  She …Read More »

    Do a Traditional Homemaker’s Workout without a Gym

    Fitness at home isn't really revolutionary; it's actually quite traditional. Traditionally, household tasks would have required much more strength, endurance, and time. Instead of doing things the easy way, for physical fitness, we can intentionally spend more time and effort on household tasks . . .Read More »

  • Healthy Weight:  What is it and how do I maintain it

    Healthy Weight: What is it and how do I maintain it

    We live in a society where mixed images of people fill our mind.  We see stick figures parading around in fashionable clothes on a runway as the ideal mobile hanger for fashion.  We see larger voluptuous women who are demanding to be recognized as beautiful and embraced for their size.  We have people who are pear shaped, apple shaped, larger shouldered people, and people with medical problems.  In the light of all of these shapes …Read More »
  • What Does the Bible Say about Modesty?

    What Does the Bible Say about Modesty?

    This post is actually a troubleshooting post for my post titled “What Does the Bible Say about Boobs? over at Blissful Moments Doula.  You can find that post >here<.  I know many ladies will have so many questions about the assertions that I made, but many of those have to do with modesty rather than the Biblical passages on breasts.  So I decided I would continue the discussion here on my blog. What Does the Bible …Read More »
  • Redeeming My Birth Story After Trauma

    Redeeming My Birth Story After Trauma

    In June of 2014, I shared my birth story with my Boholistic Mom readers.  My post called Modern Childbirth: My Story detailed my story of pregnancy and labor for my child.  Writing out my story was both healing for me and liberating.  I wasn’t hiding the pain, the fear, and the disappointment anymore. Now, two years later, I need to write a new story.  Did you know that you can actually rewrite your own birth …Read More »

    Modern Childbirth: My Story

    7.19.2016 – Update to my story here – “Redeeming My Birth” Before getting pregnant, going through nine months eight months of carrying a child, having my water break, and ending up in the hospital, I really thought that childbirth was straight forward.  You got pregnant, you grew a basketball, and you popped that sucker right out after 9 months.  I knew there was a little pain behind it at the end, but women have been “birthin’ …Read More »
  • Companies Who Do and Don’t Ship FPO/APO/DPO

    Companies Who Do and Don’t Ship FPO/APO/DPO

    In 2012, my address was an FPO address.  I am a Boholistic Mom, but my husband wears a uniform.  He serves his country in the United States Navy.  I am a military spouse and I am proud to serve my husband as he serves the United States of America. Many military members and military families become stationed overseas while they are a part of the military community.  Before we leave our home country to move overseas, we know …Read More »
  • Brazil and Microcephaly – The Real Facts

    Brazil and Microcephaly – The Real Facts

    I spent hours this morning researching microcephaly, Brazil, and the Zika Virus.  What I found is vital information.  I honestly believe that this information needs to make it to the media and out to the world.  Each party is trying to blame a different person and I cannot believe how little research was done about the chemical Pyriproxyfen before it was used in Brazil’s water supply.  There is no excuse.  Read on. The Real Facts about Brazil …Read More »

    Should You Go See Vaxxed? Click to see.

    Excerpt from a review about VAXXED that I wrote for Blissful Moments Doula blog today: “First of all, why would we cover a movie review of VAXXED: From Cover Up to Catastrophe on a doula blog?  Because every single mother has to make the decision about vaccinations for their child: whether they want them all, whether they want to space them out, whether they want the particular ingredients, and, most importantly, mothers need to know their …Read More »

    Why are my pads a medical device according to the FDA?

    Our Common Thread Every woman over the age of 14 has something in common.  We all have monthly cycles.  Most of us wouldn’t consider it glamorous, but most of us also wouldn’t describe it as a medical problem.  Our bodies are not malfunctioning when they begin their cycle each month with a cleansing.  We aren’t broken and medically in need of a fix.  Or are we? Medical Problem? According to the FDA of the United …Read More »
  • Soap Alternatives that keep you clean

    Soap Alternatives that keep you clean

      In this day and age, we have come to believe that a magical clean is only achieved with soap.  Soap being whatever the store sells as soap.  It may not even be soap, but if the store calls it soap then it must clean and we are safe.  Safe from the nasty obnoxious germs we all fear.  These evil creature must be fought with foaming cleaners (sodium lauryl sulfate), antibacterial cleansers, and if that …Read More »

For Military

As a military mom (aka military member who is a mom or a military spouse who is a mom), you are already out of the box . . . because you have to be. You have to adjust and change constantly. Your life is unconventional. It’s not like everyone else’s life. Your family moves every year or two and you as the mom hold it together at home. Why is the military home so strong and tight? Because you make it that way.
