Blogging offers a whole other way to report about hot topics in holistic health. I love blogging. Using social media is a fast and exciting way to share “the latest news.” As a health blogger and writer for Examiner I love social media. I use Twitter, Instagram, Youtube and now the app that Apple named the number one new app for 2015 – Periscope.

I wanted to share the highlights from 2015 with some of my hottest topics. Let’s look at my social media adventures as I reported herbal remedies, vaccine updates, health alerts and promoted my private spa in Homewood, Illinois, Sacred Therapy Spa. I tried to build the growing list of tips and remedies from A to Z on my blog.

After being on Twitter for over 8 years @momsherbs is followed by heavy hitters like @barackobama, The president Barack Obama,  @MCHammer, Motown singer @SmokeyRobinson and Chicago newspaper @RedeyeChicago. I have 3,543 followers. My @momsherbs Twitter account has been added to several Twitter lists such as Aromatherapy, Holistic/Homeopathic pros and more. @DoctorsTV showed me some love on Twitter when I posted a picture of me and my doggie Sammy. Sammy and I walk regularly for fitness. I am learning how to work the hashtags to attract more readers and get my information out to a broader audience.

This social media platform is just a great spot to share my holistic health images related to my herbal health business and holistic spa in Homewood, Illinois. I’m not too far from Chicago if you are looking for a nice cozy spot for massage therapy. Check me out at

In 2015 I shared a tour of my spa on video. It was live on Periscope. Those videos last about 24 hours on my Periscope account. I uploaded the video to YouTube also to share. I also posted other interesting youtube videos in 2015 on topics such as:
– Rave diet
– Getting rid of Psoriasis with raw foods
– Ear candling demo
I now offer ear candling at my spa in Homewood. Clients are loving this treatment to clear extra wax in the ears.

I scoped about my favorite health products, cool health apps and more. I had to share my favorite meal replacement drink I order through Nature Sunshine called Love & Peas. It is so delicious. It gives me so much energy. I have a page to save my Periscope videos on. Go to and see my product review. I also talked about a cool app that helps you remember to drink enough water each day – Water your body. I plan on doing more Periscope video casts about herbal remedies, healthy recipes, product reviews, cool health apps and more in 2016.

Examiner articles:
In 2015 I got lots of emails and calls from people who came across my blog and Examiner articles. The biggest response was from these topics:
– Herpes
– Sickle Cell
– Fibroids
People are pleased to be able to learn more able natural remedies for these health issues. I always share information for educational purposes only. I recommend my clients deal with their health professional for diagnosis. Thanks to the internet I not only offer personal health consultations from my Homewood, Illinois location but I work with clients over the phone or video chatting on Skype and Google Hangout. No matter where people are located we can talk and I can help them get on a personalized program to fit their needs. They can order top quality products from my Nature Sunshine site For more details in scheduling a consultation go to:

My favorite techie gadgets:
I am a fan of Android and Apple with my Samsung Note 3 and an Ipad mini. I can’t wait to upgrade to the Note 5. Both devices are helpful, so I never miss a tweet or good scope on Periscope. I now have my selfie stick and tripod for live video casting. My daughter Leah always tags me on Instagram to share a funny gram. It is nice to get a good laugh to break up a busy day. Laughter is the best medicine. Social media can be so addicting, but it is also a great way to promote business, good networking opportunities and more. People can check in through Facebook and Swarm when they come by my spa for their massage.
