People complain that everything costs so much before they go GMO Free, but it can be cost effective if you change your eating habits like making sure you only make what you're going to eat. One way to offset the costs of organic food is to make your own holistic teas. I prefer them to pharmaceutical pills!
Every month I add another holistic med to my repertoire. This month I added the spice turmeric. I've been doing a lot research about Turmeric. Turmeric is nature's very best medicinal spice. The stuff is potent and I LOVE it.
