Some awesome brands to know about… I knew about Boiron but all these other awesome brands are either new or I just did not know about them yet – check them out!
Oscillococcinum® is genius it is one of my go to items when I am feeling a bit under the weather – I originally found it in Europe and I am so glad it is available wide spread in the US. It helps with flu – like symptoms – Temporarily relieves flu-like symptoms such as body aches, headache, fever, chills and fatigue – I swear by this product and have gotten so many people hooked on it.
When I met the team of Boiron I was telling them about my hip and how I have some stiffness from yoga and they told me about Arnicare – Arnicare topicals offer everyday pain relief where you need it most to relieve muscle aches and stiffness, swelling and discoloration from bruises. Each topical contains only one active ingredient—Arnica montana, a homeopathic medicine that has been used for centuries as a natural pain reliever. Arnicare relieves your aches and pain while assisting the body’s natural healing process.
Arnicare features & benefits:
- Quickly Absorbed
- Reduces pain, swelling and bruises
- No Artificial Additives or Preservatives
- Works Naturally With Your Body
I do think it works I have been using it along with a heat pad and it seems to help.
A bit more info on Arnicare :
The same event I met the team behind BIOHM which I just started taking becuase i feel like it is so important to have a PROBIOTIC in your plan every day. I like this one because you do not have to put it in the fridge.
BIOHM – the FIRST probiotic to feature beneficial FUNGI with bacteria and powerful enzymes. For the last several decades, Dr. Ghannoum has conducted cutting-edge research on microorganisms in the human body. He just launched the first probiotic to feature beneficial fungus strains, along with beneficial bacteria and enzymes. Fungus as it turns out may be more important than bacteria in digestive health. Quickly, here’s what you need to know:
- New research shows fungus (not bacteria) is responsible for aggravating the severity of digestive issues.
- Fungi and bacteria work together to create digestive plaque, where nasty microorganisms thrive.
- Ignoring fungi (as most probiotics do) is like ignoring the 800 lb gorilla in the digestive track.
- BIOHM is the first probiotic to treat bad bacteria and fungi with good bacteria and fungi, along with a powerful enzymes that crack through digestive plaque.

I will talk about SUGAR and ICE CREAM especially ice cream but I think it is important to be in charge of any sugar addiction. I try to make my sugar be splurges but sometimes I do like myself a little ice cream at night — that is where CRAVE CRUSH comes in. I can’t say I will eliminate sugar because I would be lying I love going to dessert spots and actually just went to an awesome dessert event so I will not stop sugar intake completely but I will curb it and using CRAVE CRUSH is a great way to do that….
Sugar cravings start in the taste buds. When you bite into something sweet, sugar molecules activate sweet taste receptors on your tongue which, in turn, signal your brain. The brain recognizes these signals as sweet taste and automatically triggers cravings for more. The sugar in just one bite can activate sweet taste receptors for up to 30 minutes, triggering cravings that last just as long. Blocking sweet taste receptors on the tongue can break this cycle.
How It Works
Crave Crush binds to sweet taste receptors, suppresses sweet taste, and helps reduce sugar cravings in seconds.
Dissolve one Crave Crush on your tongue immediately after any meal or snack.
Use 2 – 3 times daily, or more, as needed.
Hardwired for sugar
Humans evolved over millions of years and, for almost all of that time, modern technology was not available to help provide the steady food supply we now take for granted. Our early ancestors who craved sugar had a survival advantage over those who didn’t. They would overeat when foods containing sugar were plentiful. Unused calories were stored in the body as fat, and provided a reserve energy supply during periods of famine. Evolution is why we crave sugar.
Up to 90% of foods contain sugar or a sweetener
Sugar is pervasive in the modern diet because it’s cheap and it makes food irresistible. Food companies hide it on nutrition labels under dozens of names including cane juice, agave nectar, and dextrose. Of course it’s plentiful where you’d expect it: in soda, ice cream, and cookies. But it’s also in bread, cereal, salty snacks, and salad dressings. Some brands of granola, yogurt, and fruit juice have as much sugar per serving as an ice cream sundae.
Scientific studies have confirmed what you’ve experienced your whole life; an initial taste of sugar immediately increases your desire for more. Whether the sweetness comes from an apple (nothing against apples, we love them!), a donut or a non-caloric sugar substitute, the physiological effect is the same. Sweet taste causes you to crave more. It’s why you want that second bite even more than the first. It’s why you continue to crave even after you’re full. Crave Crush can break this cycle and help reduce cravings in seconds.
When to use Crave Crush
After breakfast, to avoid
snacking until lunch
After half a sandwich for lunch,
to save the rest for later
Following an afternoon snack,
to reduce cravings until dinner
Right after dinner, to eliminate
your desire for dessert
In the evening, after enjoying
only one piece of chocolate
to reduce desire for more
After a night out drinking,
to avoid late night snacking

This packaging is so cool by the way for EPSOM SALT.
I was reading some info someone sent me and mentioned TOM BRADY so I stopped to take a look it was about FLOAT TANKS – there is an amazing one in Brooklyn by the way.
While spas have added float tanks, so have workout gyms and locker rooms. Professional MVPs such as Steph Curry and Tom Brady often float to help sore muscles recover, for example. The New England Patriots even installed two tanks in their stadium for the team to use.
Here’s how floating works: visitors enter a chamber filled with nearly a foot of water and about 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt. That much Epsom salt creates buoyancy, much like the Dead Sea, so people can float on the surface with no effort.
Why are float tanks amazing ? Many believe the success stems from the combination of sensory deprivation and the 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt, or magnesium sulfate. “Magnesium absorbs through the skin, so floating is a good way to get magnesium saturation,” said Dr. Carolyn Dean, M.D. N.D., a fan of float tanks who is also one of the nation’s top natural physicians and a member of the nonprofit Nutritional Magnesium Association’s medical advisory board.
Magnesium helps regulate the activity of more than 600 enzymes in the body, (de Baaij JHF, et. al. “Magnesium in Man: Implications for Health and Disease” Physiological Reviews. Jan 1, 2015 Vol. 95 no. 1, 1-46.) and not having enough can contribute to high blood pressure, anxiety, hyperactivity, heart problems, and other health issues, doctors warn. But most Americans do not get enough magnesium from their diets, according to one of the world’s leading magnesium researchers.
Epsom salt — actually magnesium sulfate — is one of the most versatile household products, with uses ranging from creating at-home spa treatments to soothing achy muscles to helping start or improve gardens. It’s been used therapeutically for hundreds of years, and it’s gaining a new generation of fans looking for a safe, economical alternative in a sea of expensive, over-the-counter remedies.
Beyond using it for sore muscles – you can find so many uses for it here -http://www.epsomsaltcouncil.org/
There are different kinds of Epsom salt. Besides what’s sold in supermarkets or pharmacies, some Epsom salt is considered agricultural or technical grade, and it’s sold in hardware, co-op or farm stores. For human use, the Council recommends only packages that are labeled “USP” and that have a “drug facts” box. That way you know it’s been manufactured, tested and certified to meet stringent regulatory standards of the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) that it’s safe and acceptable for human use. That’s true for ingesting Epsom salt or soaking in it.Epsom salt has a range of uses and benefits – whether you’re a supermodel, a top athlete, a gardener or someone who wants to de-stress and improve your health.
Epsom salt also helps plants grow greener with higher yields and more bloom and can be used for anti-itch remedies for sunburn relief, poison ivy, poison oak and mosquito bites.
The fact that Epsom salt is actually magnesium sulfate also has many health benefits, according to doctors and researchers, because when you soak in Epsom salt, the magnesium sulfate is absorbed through your skin.
