A Guide to Your Well Being with Linda

Linda - our New England immigrant - knows how to create an oasis in the midst of life's storms.

Her column is updated every weekday or thereabouts, so check back often for new secrets and tips.


Beets can be a part of healthy, natural living.

They contain soluble fiber, which helps sugars absorb more slowly and promotes lowered blood cholesterol levels, and insoluble fiber, which promotes healthy bowels.

They may also help normalize high blood pressure, since they're full of potassium.

This means beets would be a good addition to your diet if you're using herbal remedies to flush water from your system.

When using diuretic herbs, you have to make sure you aren't flushing away your potassium as well.

NOTE from Brother's Garden:

If you're planting your own beets from seed, soak the seeds overnight before planting, and thin them to two or three inches apart as they grow.

When you harvest them, cut off the greens, leaving an inch or two of stem.

Do you have Well Being ideas or secrets to share or have a question?

You can Write to Linda!.

Include your first initial and last name and put the words WELL BEING in the subject.

I'll try to use your contribution in a future column.

(Please note that these columns are written several weeks in advance so publishing it will be delayed accordingly.)
