i am a vitamin and herb kind of girl. we take them at our house on a daily basis. i really try to encourage as much natural healing with our family as possible. we regularly see our chiropractor and we take vitamins. in general i would consider our family very healthy. praise the Lord, we have never had any major illness to deal with and i take absolutely no credit for that blessing. i do know that taking vitamins and herbs aids in the health of families but God is the ultimate physician and controls all things.
i have talked about my husbands great aunt and uncle before. aunt martha was a huge advocate for vitamins and herbs (she lived to be 90). there are many other stories like hers that indicate a healthy life involved healthy eating and taking care of your body by not over using conventional medicine.
do not get me wrong. if anyone in our family requires an antibiotic to heal correctly, we take it, and are thankful that the medicine is available to us.
in an effort to keep myself and you informed of the vitamins that seem to be most beneficial i am going to post about one supplement a week. i am not an expert, only a girl that does alot of research.
vitamin d is a great supplement to take in the fall and winter months when it is cloudier and colder outside. in the spring and summer the sun provides us with larger quantities of vitamin d. it is called the sunshine vitamin and aids in cardiovascular support, immune support, healthy brain function, muscle and bone health, and energy and vitality. i do not take vitamin d in the summer and spring when i am outdoors and getting plenty of natural vitamin d. in the winter i think it keeps us healthier and up and running at a more efficient pace. if you are taking a multivitamin check to see the amount of vitamin d in it. surprisingly some multivitamins do not contain vitamin d. if it has it look at the percentage. you may need to just get a booster that gives you the amount that you need to reach 100% in a day. or eat more yogurt. it has vitamin d, or drink vitamin d milk (just limit your fat content elsewhere).
ps...i give the children a vitamin d supplement too. they make a kids dosage that can be purchased at your healthfood store or on vitamins.com called vitamin d rex.
let me know if this is helpful information.
more to come on supplements next week.

Basic White Bread
3/4 cup warm water (100-110°F.)
Combine water, yeast and sugar in a medium mixing bowl and stir until thoroughly dissolved. Let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in oil/butter and salt. Add 1 cup flour and beat until mixture is smooth. Add the remaining cup flour, about 1/4 cup at a time, mixing thoroughly each time. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 5 minutes. You may add a small amount of flour (no more than a teaspoon at a time) to keep the dough manageable. Clean and dry mixing bowl. Lightly oil the surface of the dough and place back in bowl. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
Shape into a loaf and place in a greased 9" x 5" loaf pan.
Place in oven to bake at 350°F. 35-40 minutes. When bread is baked, if you tap on the top of the loaves it should sound hollow. Remove from pans immediately and cool on racks.Makes 1 loaf.

1 cup milk (optional)
1. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl and mix well. Stir in vegetable oil. Add buttermilk and stir just until blended.
2. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll dough into a 15 by 8 inch rectangle.
3. Preheat te oven to 400°F Grease a 9-inch round baking pan lightly.
4. Spread butter over the dough. Combine granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix well. Sprinkle over butter. Roll up rectangle, jelly roll fashion, starting from one long side. Pinch seam to seal.
5. Cut the roll into 1 1/2-inch slices. Arrange the slices, cut side up, in prepared baking pan. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven. Pour milk over the top if desired. Serve hot.
instead of the milk i made a simple frosting that was a thinner frosting with milk and powdered sugar.
