Hearth and Soul Hop with Premeditated Leftovers 8/16

Hearth & Soul Hop

Welcome to another Hearth and Soul Hop! I am joining my co-hosts April of The 21st Century Housewife, Jason of Alternative Health and Nutrition,  Melynda of Mom’s Sunday Café, and Swathi of Zesty South Indian Kitchen in hosting a food carnival for and about food that not only nourishes our bodies, but our souls!

We have some exciting changes to share. First, we have a Facebook Page dedicated to the Hearth and Soul Hop. We also have Hearth and Soul Pinterest Boards and a Hearth and Soul Twitter account: @HearthNSoulHop. We experimented with these accounts last week and will be using them regularly beginning this week to spread the Hearth and Soul goodness.

This will be Jason’s last week of co-hosting on the Hearth and Soul Hop. Jason is the CEO of an online sales company, J&L Health. He sells natural health products to people all over the United States and several countries. I asked Jason to share a little about himself and  he shared his motivation for the direction he has taken:

“Modern medicine has done so many wonderful things in peoples lives and will continue to do so. However there are some aspects of it that have grabbed my attention as well as many other people. I became interested in natural medicine when reading the small, tightly packed print listing the side effects of very a popular OTC (over the counter) product, many of which were more serious than the original problem. I became passionate about it when a good friend of mine received 3 prescriptions….one for his condition, and two for problems brought on by his first prescription! I decided to make healthy choices in my medicine cabinet, just as I had at the dinner table or any other area of my life.

When working to improve your health you should always address the cause of your problem, not the symptom. Learn more about improving your health naturally at www.thewisealternative.com”.
