Curcumin Gel Caps Amazing Review for RA

I have never been one to take supplements but I happened to receive some samples at a Pharmaceutical Conference and felt compelled to give this one a chance. Many of my family and friends and some of you know that I suffer from RA (Rheumatoid Arthritis). Although it is not severe or debilitating for me, it’s bothersome enough that I began seeking out alternative care that I could take long-term. I don’t believe in drug treatment as the first option due to side effects and for chronic conditions, due  to the toll chronic meds take on our organs. As a pharmacist I know this all too well.

So I read everything I could about this supplement, Curcumin Liquid-Gel Capsules by SupHerb and decided to give it a try. It’s a capsule made up of Curcumin Essential Oil Complex, 100% pure extract.

There’s more than 33 clinical studies and it’s protected by 13 patents in Israel.

As of 2 weeks ago I was taking Matcha Tea with a few teaspoonsful of tumeric, 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper, a half of a lemon squeezed (and if not too lazy with the shredded lemon zest), a healthy chunk of peeled shredded ginger, and a teaspoon of honey (unrefined when I could afford it).

I began the capsules about 12 days ago, first taking one a day for the first 2 days, not noticing a huge change in my arthritis pain. Mostly my issue was stiffness and back, neck and shoulder pain upon awakening. Sometimes numbness as well in my hands and lower arms. My sleep had been increasingly more disturbed due to this the last few months.

By the third day I decided to take 2 capsules per day and for the first time in months, I slept well, hardly tossing or turning to find a comfy position all night!😄 Since then I’ve been taking 2 capsules a day which the recommended dose is 1-2 per day.

This product was voted product of the year in 2019!🏆

I still drink my Matcha tea almost daily but it’s not with all of the above ingredients every day. It’s no longer a necessity and mostly for enjoyment, although I still receive the health benefits no doubt.

Turmeric comes from the root of Curcuma longa, which is a flowering plant of the ginger family, typically  seen in the stores as a cooking spice. Bought fresh it closely resembles ginger root.

Of the many plant substances that tumeric contains, one group is curcuminoids, which has the greatest health-promoting effects.

See my post on tumeric for info regarding full health benefits:

Health benefits of tumeric

The only drawback I can speak of is the cost….132 shekels and that was on sale plus my employee discount. This is about $38. Depending on how you take it, it can last 1 or 2 months.  But for now, living almost pain free is worth it. If I had to rate my pain before it would have been a 7/10 as opposed to now 2-3/10.  I will keep you posted on how it goes in the future and until then, please write back any arthritis pain therapy successes that you may have experienced. Would love to hear about it.

Decreasing Pain Naturally

Being one that suffers from chronic pain, I am always looking for that natural remedy that works best for me and fits easily into a busy lifestyle.  I am also, as many of you know, a pharmacist and a dancer by trade.  I can appreciate prescription drugs but at the same time, I know the long term effects on the body and don’t want to trade one illness for another in the future.  I can identify with those in pain due to suffering from scoliosis of the spine, arthritis and old dance injuries.  In my day to day routine, I avoid medications unless I have a very bad flare up of pain which often happens from not getting the proper rest, an increase in stress and deviating from a healthy diet.

In my constant search to find healthy ways to alleviate and eliminate chronic pain, I came across this extremely thorough video of many natural remedy choices.  I hope you will find something that is worth trying that fits your lifestyle and if you don’t, please share it with someone that you know suffers from pain, whether acute or chronic.

If you try one of these and it works for you or someone else, please comment

on it and let me and other subscribers know!

Be Your Best You

Okay, so Winter is exiting and you notice that you’ve picked up a few pounds. Winter is the time of year, for multiple reasons, that many people put on an average of about 5 additional pounds! I confess that I am guilty.  How much exercise do we need to be healthy?  This will vary depending on your situation and goals.  If you have put on a lil’ weight and have kind of let yourself go, don’t feel so down on yourself.  There is hope!  Just start doing something about it.

 

get-your-20-in

As a pharmacist and dance instructor by trade, I can go through all of the medical studies and tell you the obvious about diet and exercise, but instead, I would like to share with you what has worked for me.  Although I am not a fitness expert, nor do I have a super buff body, I know a lot about nutrition, the body and maintaining a healthy weight in a hectic lifestyle.  However, I have to admit that the older I get, the more creative I have to be to maintain a healthy weight.  So, here are my top 5 tips about exercise, fitness and diet.

1. Know Your Goals & Make Them Realistic

Are you trying to maintain or lose weight?  Are you trying to build muscle?

If you are wanting to maintain your weight, go for moderate aerobic exercise about 30 minutes a day, five days out of the week.  You can watch my Taptutor vids…all 10 and have a great moderate workout while having fun!

If you want to lose weight, rev it up with a higher intensity workout and about an hour per day.  I’m working up to those videos!

Of course when it comes to building muscle, literally, no pain– no gain.  It takes a bit more commitment, but start slow with 2.5 pound dumb-bells and leg weights or resistance training, then work your way up to a more intense workout.  The key is to add over a period of time so as to not burn yourself out.  It will become more like YOUR lifestyle instead of forced.

2. Don’t Deprive Yourself

If you eat a sensible diet that is high in fiber (adults up to age 50 need 25 grams for women and 38 grams for men), you will eliminate regularly and take in the nutrients and vitamins you need, feel fuller and are less likely to crave the things that sabotage us.  Water is most definitely important as well.  Generally 2-3 Liters or more per day for adults and you may need more as you lose fluids with exercise.

Don’t deprive yourself of goodies.  Let’s face it, if I see ice cream on my left and an apple on my right, I am going to most likely want the ice cream every time.  We have to choose wisely depending on the time of day and how we have eaten during the day.  DON’T eat the ice cream at 10 PM because we know it will just go straight to our gut and butt.   I’m just sayin’.  Have half of the typical serving size and if you are still not satisfied, go for the apple.  Works for me almost 100% of the time (Almost).  The times that I do “comfort eating” are getting less and less and when I know I have had a frustrating day, this seems to be a trigger.  I’m learning to keep my guard up and anticipate my need to resort to foods that are either very sweet or salty such as chips.

3. Have a Workout Buddy and Support System

I have recently started working out with a few fabulous ladies and they have been a great support and keep me encouraged in meeting my goal to be more toned.  It costs me no money, it’s so much more enjoyable than if I were to do the workout alone and I know if I start to get discouraged, I have someone to encourage me and not let me give in so easily.

4. Change your mindset of what you call exercise….be practical

I recently purchased a resistance exercise band and it is so easy to use, affordable, portable and doesn’t take a lot of effort.  You can use it almost anywhere, even on your work break!  Below are some other suggestions that make it easy to incorporate exercise into a busy lifestyle.

  •  You can take the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Walk to the store and back instead of driving (or ride your bike instead of driving)
  • Wash your own car instead of going to the car wash.
  • Get a 30 minute, daily house-cleaning routine to your favorite music. Dusting, mopping, sweeping and cleaning the windows can work up a sweat and be a good and unexpected cardio workout.
  • Dance while you cook your favorite meal (make sure you actually finish your cooking….if you are like me, you may get a little carried away with those old line dances)

5. Make these changes for life

Don’t keep the things that sabotage you in your house.  I know…..easier said than done.  When you go to the grocery store, REFUSE to put more than 1 item that has been pre-packaged into your cart.  I usually make my own desserts and my family has become used to not even checking the cabinet for a “snack”.  They know that it is truly a treat to have a manufactured item from the store such as chips, cookies, cakes or other items.  This makes us come out of the habit of eating just to be eating.  When I make dessert, it forces me to think of what I am putting into it and questioning if it is the best thing for our bodies.  Are we just eating out of habit….or are we really hungry?

Also, make it a goal to eat just 100 calories less per day and replace 10-20% of your fat intake with something high in fiber.  It’s not much and it’s a good way to get started as a change to make for life.  You can continue to increase your fiber, decrease the fat calories and decrease your calories as you see what works best for you.

Stop Before You Use That!

I want to talk to you about a subject that is near and dear to my heart.  Even some of the closest people in my life don’t know that I have suffered from it since puberty and went through all sorts of remedies, natural and synthetic before I actually found something that worked for me.  That thing is ACNE, and a thing that seems so little and pales in comparison to something like Cancer or heart disease made my life pretty miserable at the time.   Now it’s very manageable and I try to eat a healthy diet as well as keep a healthy skincare routine.  It didn’t dawn on me that I had beat the battle until one of my teen children began to suffer from it at almost the same age that it began for me.
Unfortunately, the things that worked for me only helped my child mildly.  Everyone’s body reacts differently and really depends as well on your skin type and the underlying cause for the acne.  I noticed in the past that I had more outbreaks after childbirth, during times of high stress, in times of prolonged lack of sleep and when I deviated from my usual diet by a longshot.  For some years now, I have used Charcoal Soap as a cleanser and Coconut Oil to moisturize and protect my skin.  I have some very subtle acne scars from going years without a great remedy and had just resolved that they would be there for the rest of my life.  That’s why I was so excited to see a young lady’s testimony about how vinegar can be used to make skin clearer and other’s testimonies on how it has been a remedy for their acne.
So before you give in to drugs or over-the-counter chemicals and things that are really not good for our bodies in the long run, why not give vinegar a shot.  Not only is it great for acne, but it also has so many other health benefits such as the following:  
  • Detoxifies our bodies
  • Helps to promote great pH balance
  • Great for dandruff and scalp health
  • Kills bacteria
  • Lowers blood sugar levels which would benefit those with diabetes
  • Helps to reduce belly fat and overall weight loss
  • May have protective effects against cancer

Watch and listen to this young lady’s routine and her testimony about vinegar
Can you use any vinegar?
Sure, but for the maximum effect, you really should use an organic vinegar.  The reason why Apple cider vinegar is so great for curing acne is that it returns the acidity of the skin and restores the acid mantle. It also kills bacteria, removes excess dirt, oil, and dissolves dead skin cells.  I have used Bragg’s before and now use Neeman which is 6%.  So far my teen has had a great response in just a week of use!!!!  You never know, maybe if not so shy, he may allow me to post a before and after picture. Please see these  recipes on how to use vinegar and ditch the chemicals and move one step closer towards being healthier:

Unhealthy Mouth Linked to Health Problems?

Most of us grow up not really taking heed to warnings about our oral hygiene.  I can remember as a child forgetting to brush my teeth many nights before bed.  I had no idea how I was putting my life in jeopardy.

Although you probably understand that poor dental care can lead to cavities, did you know that other, more serious health problems can also result from poor oral care? The truth is that if you don’t take proper care of your teeth, you could face far more serious consequences than a simple toothache or some unsightly stains.

The Mayo Clinic, as well as a report from ABC News, highlight some major areas of importance:

  • Heart disease: The bacteria from swelling of the gums and periodontal disease can enter your bloodstream and travel to the arteries in the heart and cause hardening of the arteries. Atherosclerosis causes plaque to develop on the inner walls of arteries which thicken and this decreases or may even block blood flow to the body. This can cause an increased risk of heart attack or stroke. The inner lining of the heart can also become infected and swollen (a condition known as endocarditis).
  • Dementia: I had no idea about this one! The bacteria from gingivitis (swelling of the gums) may enter the brain through either nerve channels in the head or through the bloodstream This may even lead to the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Lung infections: The Journal of Periodontology warns that gum disease could cause you to get infections in your lungs, including pneumonia. While this cause and effect may not be so obvious , think about breathing in bacteria from infected gums and teeth long-term.
  • Diabetic complications: Inflammation of the gum tissue and periodontal disease can make it harder to control your blood sugar and make your symptoms from diabetes much worse. Diabetes sufferers are also more susceptible to periodontal disease, which means proper dental care is even more important for diabetics.

As you can see, brushing and flossing keeps more than your teeth healthy — they might also prevent serious illnesses. Poor dental care is also a possible factor in other conditions, such as immune system disorders, weak bones, and problems with pregnancy and low birth weight.

Listen to what Dr. Raymond Gist has to say about disease prevention. He’s been advocating for easier access to dental care for years. He was the first African-American president for the American Dental Association.

Practice Good Hygiene Habits

The obvious: Practicing proper dental care is important in many ways you might not have thought of before. Encourage your family to practice good oral hygiene by brushing after every meal. I prefer a more natural, non-flouride toothpaste, such as Tom’s of Maine.  Also floss daily and use a mouth rinse to kill bacteria. You should also visit a dental professional regularly for cleanings and the prevention and treatment of cavities. Doing so can protect more than just your teeth — it can save your life!

Kick HFCS to the Curb Already!

hfcs

I think a lot of us were born in the era of the HFCS (high fructose corn syrup) Boom.  If you are around my age, you were not around to see the switch.  Bleaching the nutrients out of pure sugar was enough of a detriment to our health, now, with the use of HFCS, illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, liver failure, dementia, cancer, tooth decay and more are at an all time high and rising.  On the average each American has increased their yearly intake of HFCS from 0 to over 60 pounds which mostly comes from sugar sweetened drinks and processed food.

So, while various organizations are trying to push the lie that HFCS is good for your health, follow the trail back to who benefits if corn loses its foothold as a major crop in not only the American economy, but other countries as well…..the Corn Industry.  The bottom line is that sugar is sugar no matter how you package it!!! Oh but wait….what’s worse is that HFCS can be more detrimental than sugar because no digestion of the sugars is required and they go straight to your bloodstream, elevating your blood glucose as well as producing fats such as triglycerides and cholesterol.  You develop a fatty liver, your metabolism becomes a hot mess, you crave more food, you gain weight and have a likelihood to develop one or more of the above mentioned diseases.

It is also stated by those promoting HFCS that when used in moderation, it is safe.  The biggest problem I see with this statement is that if you are consuming it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between in snacks or drinks, is this in moderation? question-622164_960_720.jpgHmmmmmmmm

About 17 years ago, I made up my mind that I was going to eat and cook as healthy as I could with the means available to me.  It was a rude awakening to go to the grocery store and come out with flour, bread (which I had to search for a brand without HFCS for 10 minutes), dried pasta, brown rice, sunflower oil, beans, butter, real cheese, fruits and vegetables, and unprocessed meat from the butcher section of the store.  I was on a mission!!!  The biggest hurdle was time.  I was and am a working mom outside of the home, but once I convinced myself that it takes a bit more time to make what you can from scratch and be healthier instead of being a consumer of numerous processed food, I felt much better about what I was feeding me and my family.

In short, do what you can to minimize your intake of HFCS:

  • Look at food labels and decide if this is a product that maybe you can do without and incorporate something healthier, or maybe just do less of a serving.
  • The fresher the better!  Buy raw or frozen fruits and veggies….whatever you can afford.  I would even go a step further and say to experiment with your own garden.  You would be surprised the number of things that I have grown in a small space and if you have children, they will be more likely to eat healthy from the experience.
  • Continue your research and spread the news to others.

Watch this informative video featuring Dr. Valerie Garrett, an expert in the field of diabetes as she explains the HFCS phenomenon.

There are a list of foods that do not contain HFCS, but please do your own review.  I came across the below sites that may be helpful.

Out of Loss Beauty Blossoms

I wanted to share an amazing story with you about a woman struck by sudden tragedy, responding with enormous courage, her method of healing and finally her triumph over her illness.  My guest artist is not a musician, poet or a dancer but is extremely creative and an inspiration to anyone who has been the victim of a debilitating illness.  She is also an inspiration for those who make excuses that something simply can’t be done.  Please take a few minutes to read about how she turned a loss that could’ve ended a craft that she enjoys, into beauty, despite her challenges.


Hi, my name is Brenda Dunams and before I had a stroke I was an artist of sorts.  I enjoyed making everything with my hands from crocheting and sewing to jewelry making, handmade clocks and wall hangings.

After my stroke, I knew my life had changed forever.  Accepting this harsh fact, I worried about how I could become an artist again.

At that time my daughter was pregnant and was concerned about how I was going to at least hold my grand baby.  I was offered an opportunity to receive rehab while recuperating in the hospital.  There, my occupational therapist asked what I did.  When I told her one of the things I did was crochet, she said, “I can show you how to do it with one hand.”  My inspiration was a bird and it’s beak.  I thought, if a bird can make a nest with a beak, what could I do with one hand, right?

Well, I was able to walk up out of rehab, and had the strength to hold my newborn grand daughter.  Slowly, I relearned how to crochet.  I’ve found other ways to do my crafts.  These are a few things I’ve done.


img-20180713-wa0002-collage

All of the above and below items are handcrafted by Brenda and inspired from nature.

img-20180712-wa0006-collage Just goes to show that where there’s a will there’s a way.  I hope by sharing Brenda’s story that it is an inspiration for all of us to put forth our very best and to be grateful for every day that we have to share our talents with others.  Also to be courageous in the face of tragedy and know that we can overcome with a lot of determination and most of all our Heavenly Father and Creator of all of the Heavens, Earth and all that are within.

Introducing “Jewel” by Dr. S’rah Yisrael

I was 26 years old, sitting in my doctor’s examining room, when he told me I was pregnant. Again.  With my third child in three years.  I cried.

I went home and told my husband who assured me that everything would be okay.  But I silently disagreed and thought to myself, “No, everything will not be okay”.  I do not know exactly why that thought came to my mind when it did.

It wasn’t too long after that day that I realized why I felt the way I did.  My life would evolve into a distinctively exceptional journey, to say the least.  My life would be far from what most people would consider to be “okay”.

Shocking Cancer Cure Cover Up?

There are staggering statistics regarding cancer and many of us have either received the diagnosis or have fought beside someone who is dear to us to beat it.  For many decades there has been research to find a cure or a majic bullet to prevent it from occurring altogether.

A few days ago, I was cruising the net and came across something I had never considered………that cancer may be due to some sort of vitamin deficiency????  Now that caught my interest.  What engaged me even more is that there are some that claim that the health care industry higher ups have known about this for a very long time and have tried to hide the truth in order to continue to pad the pockets of those that have wealth.

Just like we can take various vitamins to prevent diseases such scurvy, osteoporosis, dementia and more, what if there was a vitamin to prevent cancer, and as a result, it would at the least minimize the rounds of chemotherapy and radiation?  Maybe even prevent the cancer from forming or YES, even be a cure.

The vitamin I speak of is vitamin B17, better known as Amygdalin. It’s mainly found in the seeds of such fruits such as:  apricot (which tops the list of rich vitamin B 17 foods), prunes, pears, peaches, apples, cherries, and nectarines. Other B17 rich foods, although in moderate amounts include:  Flax seeds, squash seeds, millet seeds and buckwheat seeds.  Certain nuts, berries, sprouts, leaves and beans have been reported to be beneficial for this purpose as well.

It would be well worth your time to watch below as Dr. Tony Jimenez describes Amygdalin and his wealth of experience and the success stories he’s seen in treating cancer.

Many have turned to Amygdalin for adjunctive therapy with the typical chemo and radiation protocols currently in place in Westernized Medicine. If you are wanting a natural preventative course, this may very well be an option for you.

Please share this post with everyone that you know and spread the word about cancer prevention and possible alternative therapy or adjunctive therapy.  More importantly, do the research yourself, after all, it may save a life one day………maybe even your own.

What’s Your P Meter Score?

How many of us start off the day with a sigh upon opening our eyes?  Do you hit the snooze button? Dread the thought of starting what’s sure to be an endlessly busy day?

I must admit that was me but I discovered some ways to turn up my “Positivity “P” Meter Score” and want to share them with you.  They’ve helped me to be much more productive and yes…..have a more positive outlook on life and daily tasks as well as goals. But, before you read, please share on a scale of 0 to 100 how positive you feel most of the time, 100 being the highest.


1) Change your talk…..”My glass is half full”

We usually see things that we call unpleasant as only that. Ask yourself is there a benefit that you’re missing as you undergo unpleasant situations. For example, one of my sons got in trouble at school…..again😞 and I was summoned to yet another meeting. Of course he was punished and we spent a lot of time talking about his actions and bad choices. All to find out that he feels I don’t listen to him. Instead of griping about the meeting and his behavior, I said to myself, “If not for the meeting and the time we spent in the midst of his punishment, I may have never discovered that I was a part of the problem.” Our relationship isn’t perfect now but I gained a great benefit in that we’ve grown closer.

2) Don’t hit the snooze…..countdown time!

Let’s be honest, just about everyone does this. We don’t get the proper rest, we think we can get more done in a day and when we see that we can’t and we don’t get the proper rest, it can lead to depression and kill our motivation. Our immune system suffers the most.  We need at least 7 hours of sleep each day to prevent stroke and heart disease. Lack of sleep has even been linked to the stress hormone, cortisol increasing as well as certain cancers. May not get you now but after years of neglect and lack of sleep, it will eventually show up somewhere as a deterrent to your health. So get your rest, wake up to the first alarm and countdown 5-4-3-2-1 and up out of bed as if you’re a super hero called to save the day!  You will have a much more positive outlook on the day.

3) Make your to do list but don’t overload it.

Setting unrealistic daily goals can also lead to negativity and feeling a sense of failure in your tasks and in life. If you only choose 2 to 3 things to do each day and you accomplish them all versus 9 to 10 and accomplish only 1-2, you may feel more overwhelmed. You need a short term and long-term list and be realistic with your goal for time of completion.

4) Find a source of inspiration!

The most positive people in the world always have a reason to get up in the morning. Mine is serving others in order to fulfill the commandment to Love thy neighbor as thyself, …….

I do this by taking care of myself and family and branch out to my community. Even in my job I am in a service role as a pharmacist. I love teaching dance and writing. Through writing I serve by providing what I pray to be helpful and or inspirational! It’s also a positive release for me in times of frustration. It just feels good to know you helped someone and if those we help continue it forward, that positivity will multiply exponentially! Sounds mushy but the world does need more love and positive people.

5) Invision your goals happening and speak it into existence.

(Above- taking time for a minute to gain inspiration from nature)

Can you see it? Can you see yourself walking across the stage at your college and receiving that diploma? Your first child being born? Publishing your first book? Doing ground-breaking on your new business? Becoming well and healthy? Whatever you desire, seek the Heavenly Father for wisdom, pray for it and then make a snapshot in your mind of it occurring. It becomes real before it even happens and before you know it, there’s no room for negativity, no option to fail, only positivity and the road to success and wellbeing.

So, on a scale of 0 to 100, now what’s your P Meter Score? I really pray that something you’ve read here today has increased it. Please take a minute and do the before and after survey and spread the love by COMMENTING about which point may have helped you the most, SHARING this article FROM THIS SITE and SUBSCRIBING!😉
