Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3 Review

I know that when I'd asked my primary care physician to run a vitamin D level on me about 2 or 3 years ago, I had a strong feeling that I had a low level! If I can remember correctly, my Vitamin D level was 25, which is very low. I hadn't been out in the sun in awhile. I was having aches in my arms and legs and my fibromyalgia was acting up something fierce. I'm only 52 now,  and most of the people who I know that have vitamin D deficiencies are old enough to be a parent to me, if not older!

These days it seems that Vitamin D deficiencies aren't out of the ordinary, and you don't have to be geriatric age to have low levels! The fact that I learned from Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3 is that Vitamin D is related to almost very age related disorder including cancer and chronic inflammation. Isn't Fibromyalgia a chronic inflammation problem? Well, I started out taking 2000 IU daily in the beginning, and have ended up to increasing it to around 4000 IU a day. If I have my Women's Vitamin 50+ , then I'm usually taking around 5000 IU daily after dinner. I'm not sure when my level will be checked again, but I was around 40-something on my level the last time it was checked! An more important pearl of information from the Nature's True company is that studies have repeatedly show that higher levels of vitamin D are directly associated with few instances of 
cold, flu, and other types of infections. If those who are taking Vitamin D on a daily basis can have  chronically low levels . What I found very disturbing is that a "good" level of Vitamin D level in the blood is 50ng/ml or more. (Not good, I'm barely there on my level!) About 90% of people have less than 50. And 50-70% of the people have less than 30ng/ml!   Eating Vitamin D rich foods are not adequate enough to keep the D level up in your body.  I have been taking their product for a few weeks and I'm taking it for the immune and bone health.

Nature Health D-Gas Anti-Gas Anti-Bloating review

Ladies and Gents, I hope that you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving! Have you ever finished a meal or even between meals or at bedtime, and felt gassy or bloated? Those are not comfortable feelings, as far as I'm concerned! Those are feelings that I've felt, and we haven't had a product in the house to relieve them in awhile. I was glad when the opportunity arose to review Nature Health's D-Gas capsules for gas relief and bloating!

The lovely thing about their product is that the capsules are all natural! They are drug-free, and have the following ingredients in them: ginger, dill seed, fennel seed, cardamon, cumin seed, coriander seed, papain, and peppermint leaf. I've had to use them at least twice in the past few weeks, due something that I ate or having had a soda. I felt relief from the gassy and bloating feelings after taking them! Yay me!




I have a few things to tell you about the product, besides what I've mentioned above! They can be taken with meals, to prevent gas and bloating before you even feel the feelings, especially from  beans, vegetables and whole grains. The capsules are vegetarian, and are okay for those who are adverse to gelatin capsules. There are no artificial colors, no sugar, no artificial flavor or sweetener, no soy, no preservatives, no salt, no lactose, and no gluten in them. I like that if you needed to,  you could take them every day as a natural digestive aid, an anti-gas aid, and an antioxidant. They are doctor recommended! The dose is 2-3 capsules with water as needed after meals, at bedtime, or anytime you feel discomfort. Do not exceed 12 capsules in a 24 hour period.

Sorry about posts lately, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi all, and Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow USA followers for tomorrow!
I just wanted to share something with you that I've been avoiding talking about online for a month or so.  I've been trying to keep up with my posts, but realized recently that I'm getting behind with some key ones, due to the craziness that my sisters and our families have been dealing with. (For Maia and Christiana, do not tell our cousin & aunt in FL regarding this, please! You know who I'm talking about!) Our father has been dealing with bone cancer, myeloplastic syndrome. He went through a cycle of chemo, and it pretty much lowered his counts, which were already low. He's been in the hospital and in a hospice unit in the past month. We are currently dealing with trying to get him moved, to go up North. It has not been easy to say the least, and I think that all three of us girls have taken some time off from work, and will be taking time off to take care of him. I've spent most of my days off helping pack and get laundry done or take him places to run errands.  It's not really something that many around us know, I never realized how stressful the situation was until this past month. I know that I've talked with my bosses about it, but not lately.

Bess A., if you see this, you will understand why I haven't been active on the site lately.

If I am behind on any posts  for any media groups, I will get the posts done soon.

HyperBiotics Pro-Kids The Perfect Children's Probiotic review

There is a natural and sugar-free probiotic on the market for children! HyperBiotics has a Tangy Citrus flavored small size pearl which kids can either chew or swallow depending on their age or capability of swallowing pills. I tried to show the size of them in an Instagram picture that I borrowed  my Dad to hold the pearl-shaped med and the bottle that it came from .  I've tried them, and they are a mild citrus taste, something that your child might like taking! My son's almost 16 (well, okay, December 10th he'll be 16!), and I have encouraged him to take probiotics throughout the years especially when he was taking an antibiotic. But, as he's grown older, he doesn't always take supplements that I recommend for him.  I do try to remind him that it's for gut health (I do take it for gut health due to having Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).  I think that he took it twice for me. 
I included a bit of reading material from HyperBiotics for you to read! 




I learned that 60% of the beneficial flora in their products will survive the stomach acid's of a child, and get to the intestine where they are truly needed. Some key points about the probiotic of theirs is that :1) it helps repair your child's microbiome, 2)they reverse the cycle of antibiotics, 3)full nutrient absorption, and 4) it reactivates their natural defenses. That's impressive to me! I would definitely recommend these during any season of the year! If you don't give them to your children for gut heath, at least get them taking them when they are antibiotics!

Low Back Pain Program by Sherwin Nicholson (review)

How many of you have low back pain or know someone close to you who does? In my household, both my husband and I have low back pain. He's had his pain since sometime in the 80's, before we got married. I had a bit back in the late 90's, and it definitely started getting worse around 2010. I started with some pain, then I started losing feeling in it, wanting to give out on me. I had lumbar back surgery in May 2013, but I still have some pain. I was quite happy to review Sherwin Nicholson's ebook!

I like that Sherwin Nicholson book explains about how to self treat back pain both easily and safely, with illustrations and pictures of real people doing the exercises with explanations. I'm a read and see kind of gal! I can remember doing some of these actually in physical therapy pre and post the lumbar surgery.  From the excerpt about his book, "Learn how to self treat chronic low back pain easily and safely with this fully illustrated, instructional, low impact, pain-safe, exercise guide long term. The majority of cases of chronic low back pain are either related to, or worsened by specific muscle 
weaknesses and imbalances. This specifically designed guide carefully teaches the correct method to move, train and strengthen your body to properly relieve back pain. It uses nonsurgical, non medicinal, and safe methods for all ages and all difficulties. It will help with your current pain, to prevent the return of pain, and to reduce your dependency on medication and surgery. "   

It has different sections in his book on limited mobility exercises, progressive exercises, challenging exercises, and maintenance exercises. I like this book very much and have found it to be quite helpful and informative, and a great helper with my lumbar pain issues. I suggest that you stop by his site for more information: Low Back Pain Program  I have a picture on Instagram of my calf stretch!

Muti Purpose Bags Review



Have you ever been on a trip and wondered if you were going to have spilled shampoo or lotion all over your clothes in the suitcase? I haven't thought about it for awhile, due to having vacation time used for surgeries in the past 5 years. Well, there's a bag made in a few different sizes to suit your needs at Dot & Dot. They come in X-Small, Small,Medium, and Large. Dot & Dot make their bags out of a waterproof mesh, and it allows you to view what is in the bag. Going on a plane trip? You can see through the bag, and they are good for airplane security checks. They are great for taking in your purse, your luggage, and even your diaper bag (I'll admit that that idea just came to my mind!). I know that there are some companies that their employees have to bring what they would carry into work in a see-thru bag---this would be a perfect idea for those employees.

I used mine in my purse, since I usually carry lotion, hand sanitizer (1 is a liquid spray and the other is a gel), and lip gloss that could make a big mess if they broke or came open. I'm quite happy with their product! I do have a picture on Instagram of it in my purse!

For more information or to purchase one, check them out here: Dot & Dot

"Coffee Dates From Hell" by Jim Tilberry

I love coffee and I figured that reviewing a book on dates that didn't turn out right from Coffee shops sounded cool to me! BTW, my husband Steve and I never had a date in a coffee shop, unless you can include going to Denny's late at night after the bar closed, back in the day when we were dating!
Jim Bilberry's book is quite interesting! People meeting for the first time and not understanding each other were a few of the stories he talks about. There was one story about Albert Einstein meeting a lady at a coffee shop after her dentist warned her not to meet up after her appointment. She wasn't answering Albert correctly and her answers were what I would were 1 syllable words that she was mumbling. Interdispersed between the stories, the author had mentioned about some strange coffee shops that didn't stay open too long and why, those were funny too!I was totally humored by the book, and I do recommend it!!

From the back of his book it says: 10 Things NOT to Do on a First Coffee Date

1) Show up on the wrong day.

2) Blurt out "You look much older than your photo" even though you're thinking it.

3) Pat for your coffee with a bag full of pennies.

4) Pick your nose.

5) Pick your dates nose.

6) Perform a ventriloquist act with your belly button.

7) Mention how in high school you were voted "Most likely to die alone in the gutter."

8)Talk about your hemorrhoids.

9) Start humming while the other person is talking. Some people consider this rude.

10) Mention how much you hate all four of your ex-spouses.

Stretch Mark and Scar Cream Review, Along with Two Other Reviews for InstaNatural Products

One thing that I like about getting older is using skin care creams and oils on my skin and my face!
This review is going to be about Instanatural products : powerful and nourishing Stretch Mark and Scar Cream, Premium Hydration Hydraluronic Acid Serum , and last but not least 100% Pure Certified Organic Argan Oil (Multipurpose Moisturizer for face, skin hair, nails).   I've been using the Stretch Mark cream for quite awhile since I received it.  InstaNatural's Stretch Mark & Scar Cream is a great cream for using on scars and  stretch marks, since it helps to minimize the appearance of old ones and helps to prevent the formation of new ones. The cream is great moisturizer to heavily treat  the affected ares, like the hips, arms, and stomach/abdomen area! The key ingredients in this cream :
Vitamin C (15%), Cocoa Butter, Rosehip Oil, Mango Butter, Grapeseed Oil, Evening Primrose Oil; they all help to give nourishment and elasticity to your skin! It absorbs into your skin so easily!It's one of my favorites now!


I also reviewed the 100% Pure Certified Organic Argan Oil Multipurpose Moisturizer, it's great for using on your fa, skin, hair, and nails. From the bottle, it says, " About Pure and Organic Argan Oil: InstaNatural's 100%Pure & Organic Argan Oil is a multipurpose moisturizer essential to helping you achieve beautiful skin, hair, nails, and body. The cold-pressed oil is lightweight fast absorbing and free of fragrances , chemical and preservatives. Whether you are looking to freshen and soothe dry skin , repair damaged hair, or strengthen brittle nails and cuticles, the application of natural Argan Oil is a perfect addition to you daily regimen." I used the one on my arms and legs and hands to moisturize my skin! I did put it on my feet and then applied socks to them over night!


Last but not least, I tried the InstaNatural Premium Hydration Hyaluronic Acid Serum Professional Formula. On the cover on the front of the bottle it mentioned Hyaluronic Acid, Green Tea, Vitamin C, and Jojoba Oil. From the bottle it says: " About Hyaluronic Acid Serum: InstaNatural's Hyaluronic Acid Serum contains Hyaluronic Acid along with a perfect blend of antioxidants such as Vitamin C + JoJoba Oil + Green Tree. With a capacity to sustain up to a 1,000 times its weight in water, Hyluronic Acid is a great natural hydrator by helping the skin to retain moisture." I really like to apply it on my face before I go to work, I don't have to apply much, and it dries quickly. My skin feels moisturized for so very little Hyaluronic AcidSerum!!  Go to InstaNatural for more information! Here's a couple of sites for more information:InstaNatural and InstaNatural .

Number One Probiotic Review

Probiotics... what are your opinions about them? I used to take them only when I was taking an antibiotic a few years back, but since 2011 I take them with my morning meds everyday. I recently tried the Number One Nutrition Premium Dietary Supplement Advanced Probiotic. They recommend that two capsules are consumed daily with a meal as a dietary supplement or as directed by a healthcare professional. Probiotics support digestive and immune system health. Number One Nutrition's probiotics 10 billion CFUs per serving of 2 capsules. They contain Bacillus Subtillus, L. Rhamnosus, L.Casei, B. Longum, L.Acidophilus, L. Plantarum, B.Breve.  I like that there are several different probiotic bacterias in their probiotics. For those who are vegetarian, this probiotic is vegetarian. Do not take the product is you are allergic to shellfish.

Their capsules are easy to take and easy to add to your daily routine! I continued to stay regular taking their supplement, and I had no diarrhea issues when I was on an antibiotic for my sinuses a few weeks back. Here's what Number One Probiotic may help you: "Drastically improve your digestive help. Improve your mood. Balance your intestinal flora. Breakdown your allergy causing 
proteins. Accelerate your fat loss."  I recommend their product! Enclosed are pictures of the product!
