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.
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.
Right now if you use code Mommy20, you can get 20% off your first order with them. Plus, any subsequent order you can get 10% off with code Mommy10! That's a great deal on these high quality supplements. I have been using the Bone & Joint formula and can already tell a difference in the stiffness in my hands. It's like my body is finally getting the supplements it's been craving because they're in a form that is recognized and easily absorbed. The pills are not too big to swallow, and come in nice glass bottles. Click here to see all the different supplements available and get yours today.

I've been hearing a lot about hair mineral analysis lately, especially while trying to heal from Lyme Disease, and really wanted to get one done to find out if I'm deficient in any minerals and/or toxic in heavy metals. A lot of people are, and this can lead to health issues.
I came across AmAlt Health Labs, and decided to submit a sample of my hair for analysis. They make the process very easy and simple. You get a welcome box with all you need to submit your sample and then results are available for viewing online. I also learned a lot from their website, like that fact that when minerals are balanced, a lot of health issues can be resolved. As someone who struggles with Lyme disease, I've been hearing this in multiple places, and it's actually very encouraging that mineral balance may be able to help on top of the herbs and natural products I'm using. Also, in the world we live in, toxic metals are almost unavoidable and can accumulate in your body. This can lead to an increase in health conditions.
Collecting and sending the sample was easy and didn't take too long. You just collect about a tablespoon of hair closest to the scalp (only an inch worth if you have long hair) and place in the bag.
This sample results page show what they test for, and how the results will be displayed. It shows the elements, whether or not they are toxic or potentially toxic, and whether your results are in normal range or out of range. They test over 60 minerals and toxic metals. The results are straight forward and easy to read. I like how they use the different colors to help visually show what is out of range. Once they received my sample, it didn't take long to get the results. I'd highly recommend this company. To read more about them and the Hair Mineral Analysis, you can check out their website here. Ordering is easy as well, you simply order online and your starter kit will be on it's way.
I'd love to hear comments below - has anyone done a Hair Mineral Analysis and what was your experience with it?

In an attempt to get cleaner air in our home due to previous water/mold damage that has since been remediated, we have been trying out different air purifiers in different rooms of the house. Two of my kids have really bad allergies, and wake up every morning with stuffy noses and dark circles under their eyes. For this reason, we tried out the Airfree P3000 in their room. After about 24 hours, it smelled really fresh in their room. After a couple days their allergies were much improved.
There are many benefits to this machine over others, one being it emits NO ozone. Ozone can be a lung irritant and over time can even cause irreversible damage. After finding out about this, I really wanted to find a purifier that did not omit ozone for the kid's room. Even if it meets the standard for ozone emission, it can still be generating some, which can accumulate over time. Airfree also does not require any replacement filters. This is because it eliminates allergens by heating the core to a high temperature that destroys and allergens, bacteria, viruses, dander, tobacco and even ozone.
It's operation is silent, so it won't interfere with sleep. It has a simple, elegant design that will fit in with any decor. The 3000 that we have is black, and they have a P1000 that is white. It cleans the air in rooms up to 650 square feet. Overall we are very pleased with this purifier and feel it works extremely well at eliminating allergens in the air. There is no smell when plugged in (as we have noticed with a few other purifiers we have tried) and this is probably in large part due to the fact that it does not generate any ozone. I would highly recommend this product to anyone dealing with allergies or mold issues in the home.

If you are looking for a product to help in your battle with chronic Lyme disease, I'd like to share with you about my experience with Results RNA Ultimate Lyme Support. Chances are, if you're anything like me, you are researching and trying to find the best approach to battle this debilitating disease. I decided from the start that I wanted to fight naturally without the use of antibiotics because of the gut damage and bacterial resistance it can cause. So basically, I've been using herbs and now have added in Results RNA products. Once I added in the sprays, I really did start to notice an improvement for the good.
Any form of treatment will take time, but I really think this gave me a boost that my body needed. The sprays are really easy to take, you just spray 6 sprays in your mouth twice a day. The Silver (ACS200) works as a natural antibiotic against Lyme and other co-infections (that I'm pretty sure I have as well). All of the sprays work synergistically to optimize your body's natural immune response to help build you up and fight off the pathogens. It also helps to decrease inflammation and neutralize oxidative stress.
Since I started treatment in January, I have gone from 32 symptoms to 6, so that right there is proof that natural treatments can work. I'm still working on those last 6 symptoms, and hope to be in remission soon. I really think Results RNA is helping boost my immune system to get me there along with the herbs, and I would really recommend them to anyone battling Lyme Disease.
I plan to continue using Results RNA beyond the initial 2 month supply because of the positive changes I've seen. I will update this post in a few months on my continued progress, so continue to check back!

I have done a lot of research in trying to come up with different ways to attack my chronic lyme disease, and an important factor that needs to be considered in any treatment of chronic illness is detox. As you are killing off pathogens, the body needs to be able to detox, or get rid of, what you've killed off. Sweating is one of the best ways to detox. Traditional saunas, however, can be very uncomfortable with the high heat levels and humidity. That's when I came across a Far Infrared Sauna, and found that Health and Med makes a Far Infrared Sauna Blanket!
It's is so convenient to be able to have it at home and not have to go anywhere. When it came in the mail, I had to set it up and try it right away. I was amazed at how good it felt, and not at all uncomfortable like I had imagined it might be. By about 15 minutes I was already sweating.
Setting it up was simple, you just connect the cords to the bottom of the blanket, plug into an outlet, and it's ready to go. You select the setting for each zone (1, 2 and 3), and then push start, so simple! I'm already noticing decreased joint pain and mobility, likely due to decrease in inflammation. I also just feel overall better. It's like my body had a lot it needed to get rid of but wasn't sweating enough on it's own. Also, I've been having issues with waking up in the night with anxiety, which I've read can be due to an overtaxed liver. This has also decreased, since FIR can help assist the liver with detox.
Some of the benefits of using a Far Infrared Sauna include: detox, relaxation, pain relief, improved circulation, weight loss, skin purification, improves heart function and stress relief along with much more.
Another important thing to look for if you're going to purchase an infrared sauna, is that's it's low EMF like this one. I also like how it doesn't take up a lot of room like traditional saunas, so it's easy to store between use.
Overall, this is an amazing product that I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good detox method, which can be of great benefit even if you don't have a chronic illness.

NuLeaf Naturals provides high grade organic full spectrum CBD oil. They have 6 different sizes (see below) and strengths to fit your personal need. The best part - since it does not contain THC, it is legal in all 50 states.
I tried the 240 mg CBD oil. It has somewhat of an herbal/earthy taste, but not unpleasant. I could honestly feel my symptoms lessen within 20 minutes of taking it. With Lyme disease, I have constant muscle spasms, cramps, joint pain and stiffness, headaches, anxiety and insomnia. This oil is helping with all of these symptoms. I cannot recommend CBD oil high enough, and if you do try it you will find it's important to get it from a high quality/reputable site. There are definitely brands out there that are not of this quality.
The company was founded in 2014 and NuLeaf Naturals wellness products are derived from specially bred therapeutic hemp (Cannabis Sativa) plants grown on licensed farms in Colorado, USA. I love how all their products are lab tested, organic and have no additives, so you know the quality you are getting is good.
Some people complain they don't like the taste of CBD oil, but I don't find it bad. It's more of an earthy taste. I place the drops under my tongue for faster absorption. The taste is really not bad to me.
While the dosage can vary depending on the person, I started with 5 drops 2 times a day (5 in the morning and 5 at night before bed), and that has seemed to be the perfect amount for me. However it is advised to start slow to see how you personally react. Some people it seems to knock them out and others it gives them energy. It doesn't really do either of those to me, just mostly takes pain away (which was the goal!).
I highly recommend this brand, and if you want to give it a try, check them out here. Plus, all Mommy of 2 Embracing Life readers can use promo code MOMMY15 to get 15% off their order!
Has anyone else had any experience with CBD oil? I'd love to hear in the comments below!

CBD Oil has so many benefits, but the main reason I wanted to give it a try is for my chronic pain from muscle spasms/cramps that Lyme disease is giving me. I've been researching a lot about Cannabis, and have been so excited to try the CBD Oil from 4CornersCannabis. They offer a high quality Complete Spectrum CBD oil that is easy to take. From the first dose I took, I noticed after about 20-30 minutes a significant decrease in pain. I've read a lot of people say you need the THC as well, but this is not true, at least for me - the CBD oil really helps my muscle spasms especially. With 3 young kids, I found myself laying in bed on my heating pad every chance I had (during naps, right when they went to bed), whereas now, I'm actually able to do things when they're sleeping. My poor husband had been on dish washing duty for far too long. I now feel like I can do my part. This oil has already become life changing, and I hope it's just the beginning. It has also really helped with my sleep. I usually wake up quite a bit in the night, even with benadryl, but with this CBD oil I'm sleeping better WITHOUT the benadryl.
I like how this oil is Complete Spectrum which is better when ingesting the oil as it's extracted using Organic Ethanol. You can read more about the complete spectrum vs. full spectrum vs. isolated extractions here, but from my research I wanted to try a Complete Spectrum product, such as the one 4CornersCannabis offers as they are the most effective.
In addition to the Oral Tincture (the one with the blue label above), they also carry Vape Liquid, Pedigree (for animals), and a Salve for topical use.
If you suffer from chronic pain or sleep issues, I would highly recommend you try this CBD oil. It may not work for everyone, but I am having a very positive experience with it, and I know many others are as well. Plus, there are many other conditions it helps with as well. You can read about more of the benefits here.
If you'd like to give this CBD oil a try, you can order here. Plus, right now if you use promo code MOMMY10 you will get 10% off!
I'd love to know, has anyone else tried CBD oil? What has your experience been?
