I have been using Seeking Health's Prenatal Protein Powder for over a year now, and I can't wait to share with you guys some ways I have benefited from such a high quality vitamin supplement. As many of you know from some of my posts in the past, I have struggled with Lyme disease and chronic pain, as well as extreme post partum anxiety after my 2nd and 3rd pregnancies. I believe a big piece of the puzzle for me has been nutrient deficiencies. One of the biggest benefits I've noticed from being on Seeking Health's Prenatal is that after my 4th was born in July, I have not had any anxiety, which is such a huge blessing. I truly believe the methylated B vitamins made the difference for me, and I am going to continue taking it because of the benefits I get from it.
Also, my 3rd baby was failure to thrive (and he was breastfed), and this time around my son is in the 97%+ for weight, height and head circumference. Now of course there's no way for me to prove it was the vitamins, but it's the only thing I've done different. Again, I think because he's getting the quality nutrients he needs, through me getting the nutrients I need, and it's made a world of difference. Before I learned about Seeking Health I didn't know about the difference between synthetic vitamins (which I had always taken in the past) and the active forms of vitamins that our bodies can more easily process and utilize. So I think I've probably been deficient, or at least low on key nutrients for many years.
I'm going to be sharing about more of their products with you guys in the future, because I truly believe in this brand and the quality you can expect from them. Seeking Health has been so generous to offer my readers 10% off your order with code MOMMYLIFE10.

Airthereal has a new Air Purifier for 2021 with a medical grade filter and UV-C sanitizer. I reviewed one of their purifiers in the past (you can read about the APH2030C here). They were so generous to allow me to review another one for you guys, the AGH380, and I am seriously in love! It has such a sleek modern look that will go well with any decor, and I love how it uses UV-C sanitation as well as the medical grade filter, so you know germs will not be circulating.
As far as features go, the AGH380 has some exciting new ones not previously on other purifiers. The filter is a medical grade HEPA filter that removes 99.97% of airborne particles. This is great if you have allergies, pets, dust, etc. The Pre-Filter traps large particles, pet hair and dust and the Carbon Filter eliminates odors and VOCs.
The UV-C Sterilization uses high energy rays to neutralize viruses and bacteria. With 4 young kids (2 in school), this is great to help with the spread of airborne germs when one gets sick. We have 3 sharing a room, so usually if one is sick and coughing, it easily spreads throughout the room and infects the other. But with a UV-C light, the purifier can kill the germs as it passes through.
The PM2.5 sensor can measure particles 30-1000+ times smaller than a human hair.
This purifier has an Auto Mode that will adjust the fan speed based on your current air quality. If the air quality gets worse, the fan speed goes up. If the air quality is good, it will lower the speed. This is also nice to be able to know what the air quality is in your house at any given time.
The AGH380 can completely clean and recirculate the air in the room every 7-20 minutes depending on the size of the room. I love the Air Quality Indicator. If the number shows 0-12, you have fresh clean air. 13-35 means it's moderately healthy. Anything over 36 is unhealthy. When we first plugged it in, ours was 12. After some time of having it running it lowered to 4, which shows how well it worked at purifying the air.
The fan noise is not too loud, unlike some other purifiers we've had before. In fact at the lowest setting you can barely hear it! I also like that it has a child lock function, up to 24 hour timer, and filter replacement notification. Speaking of filters, they are super easy to replace, and only need to be replaced every 6-8 months.
To read more about the new Air Purifier and get one for yourself, check them out here. They also have ozone generators and other Air Purifier options available. I would highly recommend this company for their high quality and affordable options for cleaner air for your home. Especially right now during a pandemic, clean air is a must!

All 4 of my kids have struggled with eczema at some point, and my 6 month old is currently dealing with it. I have tried every cream, lotion, ointment, probiotics out there and nothing was working. I'd heard about Vanicream and saw it on Amazon for only around $13, so thought why not? It has been a night and day difference! I had to share it in case there's anyone else out there looking to help manage the flare ups without constantly having to turn to topical steroids.
When you put it on it's very creamy and thick, and almost sticky, but it very quickly absorbs into your skin. My sons eczema was about 90% better in 2 days. If you know anyone out there struggling with eczema please share this with them! I wish I had known about it 11 years ago with my first.
It's free of all the things most lotions have that can be irritating like dyes, fragrances, lanolin, parabens, botanical extracts, etc. It's recommended by a lot of dermatologists for atopic dermatitis (eczema) and other skin conditions.
Check it out here, and read the reviews as well. It has helped so many, and hopefully can help you too.

My youngest son has recently started getting really puffy red eyes, sneezing all day, runny nose, your typical allergy symptoms. The pollen counts are really high right now where we live. Airthereal generously offered me their new air purifier to try out, and it's been amazing how much it's helping him having this in his room at night.
Airthereal Pure Morning APH2030C Air Purifier covers up to 315 sq. feet using a true HEPA air filter. It filters out 99.7% of airborne particles .1 microns or larger (mold spores, bacteria, viruses, pollen, dust and more). Their filters also have an activated carbon filter to remove smoke and VOC odors. In a typical bedroom, the air will be completely circulated and cleaned within 19 minutes (over 3 times an hour).
You can see how that would definitely help those suffering from allergies. Not only that, I feel like it's helping him sleep better (probably because he's not as stuffy). I love how it operates fairly quietly, and also has a child safety lock so they can't change the settings. Also, it's very lightweight so you can easily move it to a different room as needed.
Right now you can get this model for just $89.99, plus they offer free shipping on their site. Also, the replacement filters are very affordable compared to other brands.

I'm going to highlight some of my favorite products below.
*I was provided a free product but all opinions are my own.
With 3 kids with allergies, asthma and respiratory issues, I've been researching natural ways to help alleviate their symptoms, especially when they get respiratory infections and sinus infections. I kept coming across salt therapy and all the many benefits, but couldn't afford to go to salt rooms as often as my kids would need it. Then I discovered the AirSalter by Healovation and it was exactly what I was looking for as a way to combat these issues from home on a daily basis.
Since we've started using it nightly, I've noticed a reduction in their symptoms. My daughter also had a cold that usually settles in her chest, but with using the AirSalter, she was able to clear the cold quickly without a secondary infection settling in. On their website, you can find all sorts of articles on research that's been done showing the benefits of Halotherapy. Here are just some of the issues it can help with:
Salt therapy helps decrease inflammation and clear mucus which is why it helps with the issues above. I was also surprised at how I slept better after using it myself. I don't have any allergy issues like my kids, but this was an unexpected pleasant result of using it for myself as I really struggle with sleep at times.
The saline solution is sourced from the Dead Sea, which is one of the saltiest bodies of water. However, it only contains 12-18% sodium chloride. The rest is a high concentration of minerals that help to cleanse and detoxify. That's why it is so beneficial for common ailments as it provides hydration and reduces inflammation.
The kit comes with:
If you or anyone in your family struggles with any of the conditions listed above, I highly recommend checking out the AirSalter. It's truly a unique product that I have not been able to find anywhere else. You can get your own from Healovation here. Plus right now it is $20 off the original price if you use my link above and coupon code SPECIAL20 at checkout.

You CAN Remineralize Your Teeth Naturally!
Whether you're an adult trying to avoid that filling of a cavity (or 10), or you have a child with weak enamel and you're trying to save their teeth, don't loose hope! You can do this at home naturally. I have successfully healed my sons cavities with natural products, as have many others, and I'm here to share what worked for us.
Step 1: Cell Salts
The number one thing that has helped the most, is the use of homeopathic cell salts. I will list the ones below that we used, and why they help. Within a few days, my sons pain was drastically reduced, and with time, the dentist confirmed he no longer needed fillings. I believe this was what helped the most.
Cell salts were discovered by Dr. Wilhelm Heinrich Schuessler, a German doctor, in the late 1800s. He discovered 12 mineral salts in the ash residue of human cells. He theorized that many diseases and maladies were actually caused by mineral imbalances within the body (a lack of these necessary minerals), and the body would be brought back into balance by using these cell salts over a period of time.
These 12 minerals are essential to our bodies. They are given in homeopathic form and work at the cellular level (“cell” salts). They are absorbed by your mucous membranes and not the digestive system, which is often faulty and has trouble with absorption.
Cell Salts #1 Calcarea Fluorica 6X Tablets
Cell Salts #2 Calc Phos 6X Tablets
Cell Salts #8 Magnesia Phosphorica 6X Tablets
Cell Salts #10 Natrum Phos 6X Tablets
Cell Salts #12 Silicea 6X Tablets
Step 2: Stop Using Fluoride
All your life you've been taught fluoride is what helps prevent cavities. However, it is a powerful neurotoxin that causes more damage and does nothing to protect your teeth. Here are some remineralizing toothpaste options that will help to remineralize, decrease cavities, and prevent future decay. If you click on the name of the product it will take you to Amazon where you can read more about them and see customer reviews.
Step 3: Add in Cod Liver Oil
It is recommended to get your nutrition from food, but since that is often difficult to do, the easy way to start is to use a cod liver oil supplement. The Vitamin A content is very high in liver in general, and cod liver oil provides much needed vitamin D as well. Both of these help in supporting healthy teeth and bones, and as an added benefit they also help boost the immune system. Parents used to give their kids a spoon full of Cod Liver Oil every day, and this is why. Turns out they were on to something. For those of you who struggle to get down the fishy taste, I highly recommend these chewables. My kids ask for them, and have no problem taking them, when I used to try and try with the oil and just could not get it in them
And that's it, with implementing those 3 steps, we were able to reverse cavities in my 8 year old. There are other things you can add in too if this alone doesn't work, but for us, it really worked! Does anyone else have experience remineralizing your teeth naturally without dental procedures? I'd love to hear what worked for you!

If you are looking for good quality whole food supplements, then let me tell you a little about Grown By Nature's Vitamins and Supplements. They are vitamins and minerals from whole food sources, the kind that your body easily accepts and digests. We were made to get the nutrients we need from food and nature, but in the world we live in today, that is getting harder and harder to do. Not only are more foods processed, but even natural whole foods are treated with pesticides and less nutrient dense than they used to be.
Most of us need to supplement with vitamins because of this, but synthetic vitamins could be doing more harm then good. They are not the same as vitamins you would get from fruits and vegetables and sometimes are hardly absorbed because they are synthetic. But when we supplement with whole food vitamins and minerals, our body can more easily digest them and use them. Click here to read more about the Grown by Nature difference.
