8 Minute Fix

After breakfast one day my friend and I stumbled upon a cute little display. The lady inside hinted for us to come in, so we did!

We later learned that the sweet lady’s name is Vera and she is the owner of the shop. Vera runs an 8 minute “fix” using the Bemer technology to reach an improved state of health.

We were intrigued.

First, she asked us if we were having any pain in a particular spot. I said that my shoulders and neck were bothering me a bit so Vera gave me a B-Pad to put around my shoulders before we laid on our lounge chair.

Within a few seconds I got a hot sensation through my arms and a tingle in my back.

The tingle was electromagnetic signals through out my body. What this process does is oxygenates the body and increases the electro-magnetic energy of all the cells, it also improves the circulation and oxygenation of the tissues. Nutrient filled blood flows which in return rejuvenates the body. Your cells are responding by clearing the micro vascular system.

After our “fix” we were told we would see complete results in 15 -20 hours later.

I’m not one to believe in holistic approaches, but when I woke up the next day my shoulders and neck were no longer in pain! I mean what are the chances!!! No clue, but I came back to try it again.

What else does it do?

  • Reduces recovery time from injuries and surgery.
  • Reduces inflammation and joint pain.
  • Removes toxins and immune system discomfort.
  • Helps with stress and sleep.

Mamas with c-section scars recover quicker when using the Bemer method and some have even said that their scar was gone!

Athletes and Olympic medalists like, Tina Weirather, love it too! See what they have to say here.

Yogi Tea

I love tea! In the warmer months I drink iced tea and in the colder months I drink hot tea. I really should have been born in the South. I love tea so much that I even had my 30th birthday party at a tea house.

However not all teas are created equally. Luckily I’ve found Yogi tea. Yogi has been creating deliciously purposeful teas sine 1984. Based on a proven knowledge of Ayurveda, the ancient holistic healing system of India, the Yogi collection combines over 140 exotic spices and botanical from around the globe.

Did you know, Yogi has created over 50 teas? All rich in both flavor and healthful purpose.

For example, Yogi’s Honey Lavender Stress Relief tea promotes a sense of relaxation and calm.

Traditionally used relaxing herbs and Lavender, Chamomile, and Lemon Balm combine in this delicious blend to sooth your body and mind.

I like my tea before bed. After the kids are in bed, the kitchen has been cleaned up, and the toys have been picked up I like to sit in my quiet living room, read a good book and drink a cup of tea.

Yogi teas are made from organic ingredients and do not contain GMO ingredients.

Where to purchase?

Amazon Gift Guide

We are big Amazon fans in our house. From diapers delivered to my door to streaming movies on my TV, Amazon has it all. Here’s some of our current favorites.

Favorite Movies

We love getting together with the kiddos and watching a movie together. Thanks to some really great writing, animated movies now have both something for kids and adults to enjoy! Here is our current favorites.

Favorite Toys

We love our Amazon Alexa so much that Sarah is getting her own one for her room. We use it as a timer for when Sarah does her daily 20 minutes reading for school. We like to check the weather in the mornings and we also like to play the guessing game. Now there’s a kid version and I think Sarah is going to be thrilled!

We also like to play lot’s of games.

PlusCBD Oil

You may have heard a lot about CBD Oil. I know I have been pretty curious. So when I was recently introduced to PlusCBD Oil I was intrigued to try all the different types. CBD or Cannabidiol is from the hemp plant which contains excellent nutritional value. It provides essential nutritional components called Essential Fatty acids that the human body does not produce naturally, and must be consumed by the diet. Additionally, scientific research supports the consumption of CBD from hemp oil for general well being.

Agricultural hemp is non-psychotoxic that keeps you healthy and doesn’t get you “high”.

Not only is hemp renewable and fast growing, nearly every part of the plant is usable – for food, fiber, building materials and fuel. An estimated 25,000 uses!

Hemp oil is also good for the earth! Hemp sequesters C02 an doesn’t need herbicides to thrive. It also leaves the soil in better condition then before it was planted. Every person is unique and has a different, ideal dose for them. PlusCBD Oil suggests starting low and slowly finding the perfect dose for yourself. Here are some helpful tips on understanding the different formulations:

For those busy moms who are always on the run, PlusCBD Oil Capsules are the way to go. They contain a convenient 15 mg of CBD per serving and can easily be swallowed.

The PlusCBD Oil Balm revitalizes skin with a refreshing peppermint scent. The entire jar contains 50 mg of CBD and CBDA.

PlusCBD Oil Drops can easily be added to your favorite drink or smoothie as a fun and convenient way to get your daily CBD. Each serving contains 3 mg of CBD.

PlusCBD Oil Extra Strength Spray offers the perfect dose of CBD. It is great for beginners or those new to CBD. With 3 mg of CBD per serving, it offers a refreshing taste with each spritz!

PlusCBD Oil Softgels are formulated with an extra-virgin olive oil base. With 15mg of CBD per serving this is a great option for those looking for high intensity support.

My favorite PlusCBD Oil item is the PlusCBD Oil Balm. The gentle peppermint scent is not overpowering while the balm itself is smooth and non greasy. I applied it to my hands which suffer from eczema. The gentle texture was easy to apply and felt nice and light on my hand.  Where to purchase?
PlusCBD Oil is available to purchase at your local independent health food stores or at www.pluscbdoil.com. To find PlusCBD Oil in your area, click here for a full list of locations.

Lantana Hummus

 For weeks, Sarah has been begging me to set up a play date with her new friends from 1st grade. But with busy schedules and the long winter it was hard setting up a time where we can meet at a neutral place aka the park and get to know the moms. Now that the weather is warmer, we’ve been spending a lot of time at the park after school. One afternoon a few of the mamas and I got together for a little picnic at the park. My favorite food to bring to a picnic is dips and chips.
 
After trying Lantana Hummus at home, I knew it was the perfect dip to bring to the play date. Lantana challenges hummus category conventions by using other legumes and vegetables in its recipes in place of the more traditional chickpea. Their product line includes thoughtful, bold flavor combinations that are bright, healthy, and delicious. Available in 10 flavors including Sweet & Spicy Black Bean, Edamame, Sriracha Carrot, Yellow Lentil and Beet. My favorite is the Hatch Chile and my kiddos favorite is the White Bean. Yum!!

Lantana Hummus is non-GMO, vegan, kosher, and gluten free.

We got to the playdate and right away everyone was munching on my snacks. The moms were intrigued by the yummy flavors while the kids dipped their favorite chip into the hummus.

After the picnic, one of the mamas painted the girls nails. The girls and their fancy nails!To find a store near you, click here and look for the striped lids in the deli.Lantana Hummus can be found at the following retailers: Southern California area: Vons, Sprouts Farmers Market, Albertsons, Ralphs, Target and Smart & Final.
