Did You Know?

Dill is a liver healer.  There are compounds in the herb that is believed to protect the liver against the damaging effects of a high fat diet.  Researchers have discovered that dill extract can boost the production of antioxidants that improves the liver's ability to metabolize fat.  Add dill to your daily diet and you'll notice a great drop in your trigylcerides (a type of fat that contributes to fatty liver disease) in as little as two weeks.

The Worried Mom

We thought of buying a fetal doppler when my daughter was on her last term of pregnancy.  She carried twins and total bed rest was advised during her last two months.  She was not allowed to move too much; not even to sit down.  As a first time mom she was worried about her girls all the time.  The gadget helped her monitor her babies and she felt at ease that she heard their heartbeats all the time.  It was tough that she wasn't able to do much during those times but it was nice that she was able to listen to their heartbeats to reassure her that they were alright.  On Christmas eve they will be six months old, here they are now...


My brother just renewed his roadside assistance club membership.  He promised his wife he'll never allow their membership to expire again.  Double trouble struck last year while they were on their way to NJ.  They were traveling along the highway when the rv broke down.  It was 11 pm, it was very dark and they were in the middle of the road.  That was the time he remembered that he did not renew his roadside assistance membership.  Can you imagine yourself in that situation?  He tried to call his insurance and it was a good thing that even if he had forgotten to renew, Good Sam still went to help them. 

Fabulous Switchplates

The quality is great and the style is elegant. I bought the switchplate covers for my twin granddaughters' room.  It was my first time to shop online so I had some worries.  The designs are very unique and I have not seen them in our local store so I thought I'd try purchasing online.  Everything went great and my order came fast.  I won't hesitate to order from the same company again.  The switchplates are looking fab in my little angels' room.

Earning Through Infinite Banking

Banks earn billions at the expense of its clients. While savings interests remain low, interest rates of loans are high. Banks loan our savings to businesses who pay the banks high interest rates. The banks enjoy the fruits of our hard earned savings. Aside from low interest rates on savings, we are taxed on the little earnings we get out of this. Infinite Banking circumvents all these expenses. Permanent life insurance allows us to get more out of our plans. Our profits are shielded from taxes and market fluctuations. We also get a fixed and guaranteed rate of return. We earn through dividends. Infinite banking is the wave of the future.

6 Apps to Track Your Health

If you've recently been shopping for health insurance, you know that the healthier you are, the easier it is to get those great rates. We all know the best way to stay healthy is to take some proactive measures, right? Eat a healthy, balanced diet rich in fruits and vegetables, limit your sweets, exercise on a regular basis, get adequate amounts of sleep, drink lots of water, and avoid excessive drinking. Thankfully, some new mobile apps make it easy to track your health, monitor your workouts, manage your health records, and more. Why not take the next step toward cheaper health insurance and term life insurance by using one of these apps to keep you feeling your best.

Capzule, PHR
This app allows you to manage a wealth of medical information for your entire family. Track appointments, immunizations, lab tests and results, doctor visits, and other medical histories. You can even connect to a regular computer to enter information, or connect to your calendar feature to remember important appointments.

This free app is priceless if you take many different prescription medications. The app will remind you when to take your meds, as well as alert you when it's time for prescription refills. It keeps a list of all medications you have ever taken, and it's easy to add a new medication by searching the FDA medication list. All information is kept private by requiring a password.

LogFrog DB
Managing diabetes can be a challenge for kids and adults alike. You can try a trial version of the LogFrog DB app for 30 days to see if you like it. LogFrog makes it easy to track things like diet, exercise, and medications. Data input is quick and easy, even appealing to kids. It can track blood sugar levels over time, and has an alarm feature to remind you to test your blood sugar or take medication.

PozTracker is a confidential app used by people living with HIV/AIDS. It helps you keep track of all medical information, including doctors visited, medications, allergies, and viral load levels. It offers a graph feature and a glossary of common terms as well as tips to stick to a healthy regime. It keeps information private by requiring not only a password, but also security questions each time you open the app.

iPeriod Ultimate
Women can easily track their monthly cycles with the iPeriod app. Whether you're trying to conceive, or quite the opposite, the graphing feature can spot trends, notify you of ovulation, and more. It can provide email alerts, has a calendar, and the information is easily backed-up, making this the only app a woman needs to keep track of her feminine health.

BP Tracker
This app allows you to quickly and easily monitor your blood pressure. Data can be entered in seconds and can then be emailed to your doctor if you choose. Information can also be shown in a graph, so you can track blood pressure trends. There is a handy color-coding feature, which allows you to easily recognize when blood pressure levels get too high or too low.

Can't Sleep?

 photo credit:

If you have been staring at the ceiling for hours try this simple trick I found.  Rub your earlobes with your thumb and index finger for thirty seconds, or until they feel hot.  Traditional Chinese Medicine experts say the trick removes blockages in your flow of qi, or life force, and returns the body to a calm, peaceful state.  You'll drift off to dreamland fast!

Cymax It

Exhausted and getting nowhere with my daughter's new house, we decided to get all the furnishings and decors from just one place. Rather than spend countless hours in the mall, we just ordered everything from Cymax. Every piece should complement the rest. Her bathroom was ordered as a set so that everything had the same design. Her kitchen and the dining room was an ensemble. Everything matched. Even the wallpapers had to match the furnishings. Every piece of decoration matched the room they were placed in. So the next time you hit a blank wall on a home makeover, Cymax it.

Cymax: Convenient Designing

My sister is a very busy person. Finding time to shop is a chore for her. When she moved to her new condo, she had no time to buy decorations or even furnishings. I advised her to just order the things she needs online and if possible, from just one store. She took my advice and searched for a store online when she discovered Cymax. After checking out their product line, she chose the items she needed. To simplify everything, she ordered all the items from them. She did her interior design herself and everything turned out great. All the furnishings and decor went well together. She intends to buy some more items from them.
