Providing premium pet care doesn’t mean serving Fido or Fluffy a feast on fancy china. In fact, taking good care of your pet is a lot like taking good care of yourself — it’s best done with the help of a like-minded healthcare practitioner and natural, healthful everyday choices.
Your pet’s needs are very individual, so finding a good veterinarian is an important step. In addition to a full physical every year (more often for younger pets or those with special needs), you’ll want to talk with the vet about vaccinations and other preventative measures, food and supplement choices and grooming. You may also want to explore homeopathy, herbal remedies, and other holistic care options.

January is here... the holiday time is over, and the winter stillness has a chance to reach us. There is something about a new year that holds a sense of possibility. More than any other time of year, we pause. In our culture of overdoing, this pause can be very significant. It can be a time of small new beginnings or a moment when the seed of something bigger takes hold. Often it is a time when we turn our attention to something about our health. Maybe we simply see that making a promise to exercise regularly needs to be part of our new year or perhaps something more challenging needs our attention. Health can always be a place to strive toward. Illness, whether it be a winter cold or something more chronic and troublesome, offers an opportunity to pay attention and look at how we live our lives in a new way. Homeopathy is a healing modality that can treat acute illnesses like colds and flu and help us to address the far deeper issues of where chronic illness begins.

Winter is just around the corner and it is an important time to pay close attention to your health and well-being on both the inside as well as the outside of your body. Using pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils at the first sign of distress will support your body to stay in a healthy state. Essential oils penetrate the body through the nose and skin, with the olfactory glands being the most direct route.
Incorporating essential oils into your daily routine will help keep your immune system stronger, shorten your recovery time from illness and uplift your spirits when the winter weather keeps you inside a bit more than you would like. Pure therapeutic essential oils have the ability to work with the body on a spiritual, mental and physical plane to bring the body to a place of balance and harmony.

|Excited About Probiotics|
If you're excited about probiotics, look for new products, both refrigerated and shelf-stable, from Garden of Life.
Do you love probiotics as much as I do? I'm so excited to introduce a handful of new ones to our cooler (and shelves!). Garden of Life has recently teamed up with microbiome expert and neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter to develop a new "Dr. Formulated" line of probiotics, with prebiotics included in each formula for better colonization. Some of these products are shelf-stable, so you can happily travel with them on your end-of-summer camping trips with no worries about refrigeration: check out the Once Daily Men's and Once Daily Women's, both shelf-stable with 50 billion colony-forming units (CFUs). For a more targeted (and still doctor-formulated) probiotic, head over to the cooler, where options include Mood+, Prostate+, and Urinary Tract+, all condition-specific formulations. Or opt for the nonspecific, hefty Once Daily Ultra, chock full of 90 billion CFUs. Finally, Organic Kids+ boasts 5 billion CFUs in a delicious chewable tablet some adults can't seem to stay away from. Time to get a good-bacteria boost!

In April, “going green” is on all of our minds as we prepare to celebrate the 39th annual Earth Day, mindful of the urgent threats of climate change and the challenges we face in creating a sustainable society. Being “green” is a central part of what GreenStar is all about — it’s right there in our name — and we’ve long used the color green to express who we are, a tradition continued with our new logo.
Part of GreenStar’s mission statement is “exercising ecologi...
