Welcome to Our Healing Roots, a blog exploring natural medicine that returns us to the roots of health and wellbeing. Our Healing Roots, LLC, is a private natural healthcare practice and experiential learning center that advocates the safe use of integrated, natural medicine. Many healing ways have gone by the wayside with the advent of conventional medicine. While it is important to receive professional medical advice for serious conditions, there are many things we can do at home to prevent disease and maintain our health. The Latin word for doctor is docere, which means to be a teacher. Our Healing Roots wholehearted embraces the importance of teaching in healthcare, so that people feel empowered about their health and wellbeing.

To wrap up my series on soda alternatives, I would like to discuss flavored seltzer water. You can buy flavored seltzer water (i.e. LaCroix) or you can affordably make you own. These sodas do not contain any sugar or artificial sweeteners. I recommend flavors such as cucumber, citrus, rosemary, and mint.
To make flavored lemon-rosemary seltzer water, add fresh slices of lemon and sprigs of rosemary to your bottle of cold seltzer water. Allow to infuse for at least an hour; this can be done in the refrigerator. You can strain the lemon and rosemary sprigs off, but this is optional. Experiment with other herb/vegetable/fruit combinations, too.
You can also do these flavor infusions in filtered, non-carbonated water as well. Lemon-rosemary or cucumber infused water can be a refreshing option for your next summer party.
I hope you have enjoyed this opportunity to think outside the box on soda. If you have a soda addiction that is causing you headaches and mood swings when you try to give it up, please consider making an appointment at Our Healing Roots, LLC for additional support.
