Seasonal Allergy

Posted by Cecile at 10/28/2010 11:09:00 AM 0 comments
My son suffers from seasonal allergy every year. And it occurs during summer and fall. The height of his coughing is during fall where it is windy. My husband and I worry so much about him for he couldn't sleep at night because of coughing. The allergy medicine he is taking helps a lot, but it needs to be taken everyday. We are concern he might get addicted to it. But so far, he is okay. I just wished there is a natural allergy medications available in the market, that way we are sure that there would be any side effects in the long run.

Anyway, according to what I've read online: these are the causes of fall allergies.

Weed pollen is the main cause of seasonal allergy in the late summer and early fall. Depending on the area of North America, these weeds include ragweed, sagebrush, pigweed, tumbleweed (Russian thistle) and cockle bur.

In some areas of the world, some trees can pollinate in the fall as well.

Here are some tips to minimize pollen exposure:
  • Keep windows closed prevent pollens from drifting into your home
  • Minimize early morning activity when pollen is usually emitted-between 5-10 a.m.
  • Keep your car windows closed when traveling.
  • Stay indoors when the pollen count is reported to be high, and on windy days when pollen may be present in higher amounts in the air
  • Take a vacation during the height of the pollen season to a more pollen-free area, such as the beach or sea.
  • Avoid mowing the lawn and freshly cut grass
  • Machine dry bedding and clothing. Pollen may collect in laundry if it is hung outside to dry.

The Best Weight Loss Supplement

Posted by Cecile at 10/26/2010 12:13:00 PM 0 comments
Walking everyday for at least forty five minutes helps me a lot to lose weight. Thanks to my dear husband who is my walking buddy. I could have never done it without him. Eating a healthy balanced diet is another; it not only helps shed unwanted fats, but also lowers my high blood pressure and stabilizes my blood count. I am thinking that maybe if I can find the best weight loss supplement, my goal would be surely achieved! I heard many testimonies from consumers who took weight loss supplements; they dramatically lose weight and were satisfied with the effectiveness of the product.

Natural Healing Oil for My Skin Tags

Posted by Cecile at 10/26/2010 11:51:00 AM 0 comments
Have you heard about skin tag? If so, you probably know the caused of it and why certain people have it. I on the other hand didn't know about it till I notice it on my skin particularly around my neck which is kind of unsightly. Worried, I asked my physician what to do o remove it. She said, she can take it, but it will come back again or have it remove using laser...meaning I need to see a dermatologist. Oh well, I opted to have it remove by her instead. Sure enough, the skin tags came back.

Anyway, my brother has quite a few of it on the same spot like mine. Little that I know of, he has been searching the net looking for a safe and natural way to remove it without the help of a skin specialist. He found a natural healing oil that can help remove the skin tags. That was a good news for both of us! This oil is a little bit expensive, but very effective. I wonder whether the website that sell this natural healing oil also sells natural male enhancement products. Okay, just curious, lol! I think I better check the site out to see what other natural products they offer.

Woke Up with Laryngitis

Posted by Cecile at 10/26/2010 11:50:00 AM 0 comments
One morning, I woke up with laryngitis. I couldn't hardly talk. My son thought I was just very funny and was making him laugh early in the morning. After awhile, with his annoying voice told me to stop talking like that for it wasn't fun at all anymore. My poor little guy, he didn't know what was going on and so I replied saying that I wasn't being funny. He understood when I explained the reason behind my raspy voice. Anyway, I searched online the caused by I had it. And here is the answer.

What is laryngitis?

Laryngitis is an inflammation of the voice box, or larynx, that causes your voice to become raspy or hoarse.

Laryngitis can be short-term or long-lasting (chronic). Most of the time, it comes on quickly and lasts no more than 2 weeks.

Chronic symptoms are those that last 2 weeks or longer. Check with your doctor if your symptoms last more than 2 weeks, because your laryngitis may be caused by more severe problems.

What causes laryngitis?

Laryngitis can be caused by:

  • Colds or flu. This is the most common cause.
  • Acid reflux also known as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). This type of laryngitis is also called reflux laryngitis.
  • Overuse of your voice, such as cheering at a sports event.
  • Irritation, such as from allergies or smoke.

Inexpensive Office Furniture

Posted by Cecile at 10/26/2010 11:36:00 AM 0 comments
Monday is our grocery day. It is also a time where hubby and I go on a date. After running errands we usually go for a lunch and a movie if the time permits us. Yesterday, we went to Walmart for groceries. While there, we decided to look for a game table we can use during Family Home Evening. Yes love to play board games and putting puzzles together as family. This is one of the many activities we do to bond and enjoy each other's company. Going back to game table, we are glad to have found one that is inexpensive and the right size for our living room. We can even use it as an office furniture when we convert the third bedroom that serves as a guest room for the time being. Buying furniture doesn't have to be expensive and fancy, I think. But can be used in any occasions. Being frugal can save us a lot of money...don't you think especially when crisis arise.

Children's Best Vitamins

Posted by Cecile at 10/20/2010 08:41:00 PM 0 comments
When our son was about four year old, we were worried so much about his health. There were days that he wouldn't eat as much as he should have been. But there were days, too that he would eat a lot and that made my husband and I happy. Because of these two reasons, his weight was always on low percentile. And so we asked his pediatrician for best vitamins that would help him boost his appetite.She just advised us to buy an over the counter multivitamins for kids. Sure enough, after a week or so, Jacob's appetite is back and he gained wight, too! Some may say that vitamins don't help increase kid's appetite, but to our son it did. Why? Because the moment we stopped giving his his vitamins, his appetite is lost. He would eat alright, but only a little.

His Hernia Needs to be Removed

Posted by Cecile at 10/20/2010 08:36:00 PM 0 comments
My husband has finally decided to undergo surgery for his hernia. Thank goodness! I was worried that it might get worst if he doesn't do anything about it. After nagging and stuffs, he one day see a doctor. He was convinced that it needs to be removed. He chose to have the surgery done outpatient, that way he can go home and recuperate at home under my care. Worried? No! We couldn't wait for it to be over though, lol.

What is Hernia? Wikipedia answered it with this:

A hernia is the protrusion[1] of an organ or the fascia of an organ through the wall of the cavity that normally contains it. A hiatal hernia occurs when the stomach protrudes into the mediastinum through the esophageal opening in the diaphragm.

By far the most common herniae develop in the abdomen, when a weakness in the abdominal wall evolves into a localized hole, or "defect", through which adipose tissue, or abdominal organs covered with peritoneum, may protrude. Another common hernia involves the spinal discs and causes sciatica.

Herniae may or may not present either with pain at the site, a visible or palpable lump, or in some cases by more vague symptoms resulting from pressure on an organ which has become "stuck" in the hernia, sometimes leading to organ dysfunction. Fatty tissue usually enters a hernia first, but it may be followed by or accompanied by an organ.

Most of the time, herniae develop when pressure in the compartment of the residing organ is increased, and the boundary is weak or weakened.

Exercise, the Safest Fat Burner!

Posted by Cecile at 10/20/2010 08:27:00 PM 0 comments
This morning after we walked our son to school, hubby and I did our morning routine which is walk in the park and around the big pond for our daily exercise. On our way, a friend of ours who doesn't want to walk when the weather is cold joined us. The thing that I don't understand about her is that, she lived in Canada for years and still has not gotten used to the cold weather there. And when I go to her house, her AC is not on and I am sweating like crazy! Why? The funny thing is that, they wear something light because they themselves are sweating profusely. Oh well, I guess there are some people who live a little weird, lol. Anyway, I agree when someone said that the safe fat burner is walking or exercising. I bet you guys would also agree on me. Losing those unwanted fats is easier when done with diet and coupled with exercise.

Tens Units

Posted by Cecile at 10/10/2010 07:12:00 PM 1 comments
Have you heard of the words TENS units? Well, they are not mathematical terms. TEN is the acronym for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. This portable gadget is designed to stimulate the certain parts of the body to block pain signals using electrical impulses. These electrical impulses are mild ones but enough to block pain signals from the brain.

TENS units can only be used under the direct supervision of doctors, physical therapists or occupational therapists. This portable gadget has patches that act as muscle stimulators. They are attached to the surface of the skin or at the area where the pain is being experienced. Most of the time, TENS units are used by patients suffering from arthritis, join pain and fibromyalgia.

When I searched online for TENS units, I found one brand that is known to be the best and this LG-TEC Dual Combo TENS Unit and Muscle Stimulator. This particular brand is available at most medical supplies shops one of which is LGMedSupply Online.

So, if you need some muscle stimulators to attend to your joint pains, ask your doctor if you could use a TENS unit to relieve pain today! You can also visit LGMedSupply online for more info; or for any inquiry you may have check the online customer blog for they will answer them promptly.

My husband and I find shopping online can save us time , energy and money. as well as gas. So since then, we shop for whatever we want like electronic gadgets, video games, dvd's, clothing, accessories, shoes and even vitamins for our son. Lately, we have been shopping like crazy at amazon; oh man we love this shopping site! They have everything we could ever imagine. Hubby even shop accessories for our water dispenser for a lower price. Isn't internet great or what!? Shopping for insurance at makes shopping online even better. Someday, I am pretty sure that we wouldn't waste plenty of times shopping for insurance for this can be done right on the tip of our finger!

He is Skeptical

Posted by Cecile at 10/04/2010 02:00:00 PM 0 comments
Finally I found fat burners I can take that is natural, safe and effective. It wasn't cheap, but hey, as long as it is safe, I wouldn't mind paying more. As I always say, hubby is very skeptical about diet pills and fat burners, but if it is a natural one, then maybe he would try it. And so I bought it for us to try. Who knows it maybe effective. This would be our first time to try fat burners, hope it won't disappoint us. I know we still need to continue exercising everyday as well as eating a healthy and balance diet.
