Naturally Stop Your UTI Before It Starts with Uqora (drink mix)

I have partnered with Uqora for this feature. Opinions are my own

If only preventing a UTI was as easy as drinking it away? No more pills to swallow that you are supposed to take with a full glass of water anyway. With Uqora you skip pills and capsules and naturally prevent those pesky UTI’s. I have had 2 UTI’s and as I think back, both of them were when I worked in a medical clinic and I would be so busy I wouldn’t stop to use the bathroom. I stayed hydrated because I needed it but would go hours not stopping at the restroom. If you’ve worked in a medical building you know that walk to the restroom hardly gets completed. You have doorways along the way and are bound to be seen (and grabbed for a task) along the way. “OK! I can hold it”. That creates UTI’s. I do not recommend getting into that routine.

Naturally Stop Your UTI Before It Starts with Uqora (drink mix)

Many suffer from UTI’s due to chronically suffering since a child or due to pregnancy or age and chronic illness. No matter what causes your UTI’s you get pretty good at feeling them coming on or knowing when you need to make a change before your bound to suffer again. This is the time to use your Uqora. Uqora is meant to prevent the UTI in the first place. Or you can chance it because paying co-pays is fun and those horse-size antibiotics are so great for you when you are always on them, aren’t they? The answer to both of those are “…no they aren’t”.

How does Uqora work?

Once bacteria attaches to your urinary tract it is hard to flush it out, so the safe and natural ingredients in Uqora aid in preventing bacteria from sticking. With electrolytes added and the combination of water to increase urine flow you get to flush your system to get the harmful bacteria out. Plus, there is some added immunity boosts within so all together you are working to stop UTI’s before they start. Once you experience the actual symptoms you have to go get medical treatment so let’s not get to that point. Uqora is formulated with clinical data, in collaboration with top physicians and urologists, to give you body the defense it needs.

You can take Uqora daily! In fact, no more than 5 packets a day is the recommendation so that leaves it safe to use more than once a day. Taking it at normal activities that increase bacteria flow like right after intercourse and right after exercising and even during your pregnancy are great times to have Uqora and a glass of water on hand.

Best Air Purifier Technology with Airfree Indoor Air Purifiers

Natural relief! I love those 2 words. Last week I made an appointment with my son’s new Doctor to discuss his allergies. It had been a few years of moving and switching Doctors and treating seasonal allergies suddenly became a guessing game for me so because he was suffering so bad this spring I made an appointment to talk about a regimen for his 10 year old self. We are to give 1/2 Zyrtec and some Flonase nasal spray daily to get that swollen sinus cavity opened back up. I asked if this is something he needs to be on everyday year round and he sort told me that as long as it appears he needs it, we treat!

Needless to say, I am determined to help the air in my home and perhaps get him to only seasonally needing these medications. Now I hear that one of the best Air Purifiers on the market is having a sale and this is excellent news for your home!

Airfree air purifiers are effective against bacteria, viruses, mildew, mould, dust mite allergens, pet allergens, pollen and tobacco odors. The maintenance? None! These purifiers have no filters (gathering and holding allergens) or moving parts (that move around those allergens). It gets better because Airfree Air Purifiers are silent and energy efficient. Airfree continually draws in air, heating it to over 390ºF and instantly sterilizing it. The purified air is then cooled inside the device before being returned to the room.

Cabana Life Sun Protective Family Swimwear Inspired by Melanoma Survivors

Cabana Life Sun Protective Family Swimwear Inspired by Melanoma Survivors

Don’t you just love the chance to wear new swimwear? There are so many styles and brands to choose from that when you find the right piece it is like a huge accomplishment. I have a few tankinis and shorts, but what I realized I lack is something for when evening hits on chilly nights. I may still want to get in the water, but out of the water I get cold and don’t want to have to change or get my regular clothes wet. My Palace Blue Zipper Rashguard from Cabana Life is my new favorite sun protective clothing and swimwear piece.

Cabana Life has swim shorts, bikinis, suits, tanks, tees, coverups and more that all work to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and with pieces like the long-sleeve rashguard I have it is great for those days when the warm day sun brings a chilly sunset. Above is an example of a cover up from the Girls line.

Cabana Life has the boys and men covered too! Their skin-safe fabrics give you the highest rated UV protection that will not wash out in the water or with sweat like sunscreens do. I hate the chore of greasing up my son so if I can cover him with safe clothing wherever I can it eliminates skin areas that I have to apply sunscreen to.

From the water to the meal table their fabric is comfortable to wear all day. It dries fast and looks great with bold colors and/or fun patterns. This brand was started by a skin cancer survivor so they are serious about the protection this fabric gives you and your entire family.

Here is the fun part! They have Mom and Me as well as Daddy and Me matching styles. I love finding these matching sets (and it makes spotting my big and little men in a crowd much easier).

Gurunanda Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser For Car

I have partnered with Gurunanda for the feature. Samples were sent and opinions are my own

Gurunanda Ultrasonic Essential Oil Diffuser For Car

How much do you love your essential oils? If you are like me you love using oils. Everyone has their preferred way to use oils. Many rely on them for healing, some may use them to make household cleaners and beauty products and my preferred usage is to fill my home with pleasant aromas (I’m a Mom of boys, so….)

Gurunanda has many essential oils and diffusers and now they have some portable diffusers so you’re oils can leave you pleasant aroma wherever you go. The Gurunanda Ultrasonic Essential OIl Diffuser for the Car is more than just a unit that can fit in your car’s cup holder. It comes with a USB cord as well as a plug for the cigarette lighter unit of your car.

I see this essential oil diffuser as useful in a hotel room, in the RV and even at your personal work space. I have USB ports on my laptop so when traveling or at my home office I can plug in right near me and burn some lavender or peppermint if I have a headache or stomach aches. It has the ultrasonic mist so it is great for healing.

More Features include:

  • Water Capacity: 55 ml
  • No wick required
  • Overheating protection.
  • Auto shut off when water is low
  • Compatible with most laptops or USB wall/car outlets, cable included
  • ETL certified

Modes of Operation

    • Continuous mode – Mist lasts up to 4 hours.
    • Intermittent mode – Mist lasts up to 8 hours.

While visiting Gurunanda to learn more, see their new Essential Oils Roll Ons! I actually own a few roll ons and the Gurunanda Jasmine Kiss is by far my favorite scent. Every time my eye catches the bottle even if I’m just at home with no plans, I stop to open it and swipe my wrists or neck to just have the scent near me.

I Fall Asleep Faster Now with the Pzizz Sleep App

I have partnered with Pzizz for this feature. Opinions are my own

When you write and try products for a living to help readers find products to live happier, healthier and more active lives, I sometimes come across something so genius I now have it incorporated into my daily life and don’t know what I did before using it. For me lately, it is the Pzizz App. I have been pitched and even tried many sleep products and this one is my nightly savior. Let me explain more so you can get better sleep just like I do now and save too with a promo code!

The Pzizz app is not only for your nightly sleep. There are 2 other modes, nap and focus. So this is truly meant to relax your mind and allow you to settle down a bit even during the day. If you are like me, you crave to rest then the moment you settle in your mind refuses to shut off. I used to give myself the excuse that I do my best thinking at night, but at what expense? It was a loss of precious sleep. The healthiest thing anyone can do, no matter your age or abilities is get proper sleep.

Sleep is more than counting the hours your eyes are closed. Sleep means deep, non-interruptive and prolonged rest and if you function on naps they need to be short and so effective and deep as well or you just want to keep sleeping through your day. Pzizz uses a combination of music, voiceover and sound effects in a sort of hypnotic way that is in a rhythm allowing your body to use the play as a daily ritual to train for falling asleep fast and allow you to wake up refreshed.

There are 2 ways to use this app. The Classic ‘FREE’ version gives you a simple ‘Dreamscape’ that plays a few variations for you each night in a soothing male voice. It gives you a classic version without options to choose sounds or even allow for the female voice playover. However, if free is all you can do you WILL still benefit from the app.

However, Premium (about $9.99/month or $99.99 a year OR Free for 7 days and I’ll explain below) Pzizz is truly the way to go and don’t worry because I have a savings code below for you and it saves you a whopping 80%!! Paid sleep apps are still a lot cheaper than those artificial sleep aids you take with water and hope for the best each night.

With Pzizz Premium you have over 25 Dreamscapes to choose from. You always have the voiceover and in this version you can switch from male or female voice (I love the female voice myself), but the Dreamscape is the background sounds and music. I love the choices and the Saturn Set and Hills are 2 of my favorites.

You also get an alarm option where it will properly wake you up without loud alarm sounds. You can even set a sleep reminder if you need motivation to stay on a schedule. I recommend buying some sleep headphones unless your partner is OK with listening but there is something about hearing it right up to your ear versus full volume to reach around the room that is most soothing.

Remember! I promised you a code to save off of the paid version and it is below! First, here is the official pitch I was sent that really sparked my interest and then you can head over to the Pzizz blog for more sleep topics:

Over two billion people (yes, with a “b”) in the world are affected by insomnia, but Pzizz has helped over 1 million people get the sleep they need, including some of the world’s most influential people. J.K. Rowling called Pzizz the best thing she’s used for sleep by a mile. Former Indiana Pacers Center Roy Hibbert told Sports Illustrated Pzizz helped cure his insomnia and Ambien addiction. Even The Duke of York is a Pzizzer!

Pzizz Savings Code Instructions

Here is how to use your Pzizz code: GRADGIFT that will expire on June 30, 2018! You have to redeem the code on the Pzizz website at https://pzizz.com/buy/ Once you redeem the code, you can use it on iOS, Android or both with the same email at app registration as you used on the site to redeem your code. This code saves you 80% off the yearly price option so that makes it only $19.99 a year or about $1.66 a month! How much do you spend a month on sleep aids that aren’t always cutting it? It makes a great gift for a grad heading off to college!

Still unsure about the Preferred version? If you download the Pzizz app right now on Apple or Android you can get Pzizz Preferred for 7 days free and no credit card is required. It will ask if you want it and you confirm and after 7 days it just reverts back to classic. I did this at first and it was very easy to try it for 7 days. However, I missed the features once it went back to free so I now am a Preferred user. I can tell you that I settle in each night and turn on my app and after a week I am not even 5 -10 minutes into the play and I am out! I used to have this 7pm drag everyday (or so I called it) and that is gone! You want to try this. You have nothing to lose! Start now— Pzizz on iOS and Android

PARA’KITO Natural Essential Oil Mosquito Repellent

PARA’KITO Natural Essential Oil Mosquito Repellent

OK parents! We have been warned that much of what we grew up using as kids actually contains (or now contains) ingredients that are harmful. So, how do we know what is really safe to use from soaps to sun and bug sprays? Summer is coming and we want the best for our families but not spend a fortune either. Let’s look at PARA’KITO for mosquito repellent. The diseases these insects carry is scary but we can protect our kids, naturally and affordably.

With PARA’KITO, you can get those popular and effective essential oils in ready-to-use products that are safe and natural. I am so excited to have these for the summer! I am featuring 2 bands from the kids collection.

bug band

Finally a mosquito repellent I feel safe using on my family. It is a unique blend of essential oils with a slow release form so this works wet or dry and once you open a refill it protects for 2 weeks. I can use the roll on, bands or clips on even my youngest son. Made with natural essential oils I don’t have to fear that we have too much on or that we’ll be left with a horrible scent on ourselves.

It is gentle and with the exception of the roll-on for under 6 months old or taking care not to allow a baby/toddler to get ahold of these in a way to chew or put in their mouths you can use these on the very youngest of family members. It’s as safe as any essential oil product you would normally use. Visit http://us.parakito.com/to learn more!
