GuruNanda Exotics Essential Oil Review

GuruNanda Exotics Oil Diffuser Review + Giveaway

Recently I discovered that essential oils are not only good for relaxation, and recentering the mind but they can be used in a variety of craft items. One way I use essential oils is by placing a few drops of my favorite scent on my dryer balls, and letting the dryer do its work.

Lately I have been trying to learn other ways to use essential oils, beyond the typical diffusion into the environment. So when I had the opportunity to review the GuruNanda Exotics Essential Oil’s I accepted.

AliveCor: Kardia Mobile Review

Heart Monitoring with the AliveCor: Kardia Mobile EKG Monitor

A couple of months ago I took my father in for a fairly routine surgery. I was suppose to drop him off, and  hours later pick him up. Instead a mere minutes after dropping him off I was getting a call that a cardiologist needed to speak to me immediately and I had a decision to make.

As it turned out, as they were completing this “routine” surgery, my father passed a clot and had a heart attack on the table. As I would later hear he thought it was a severe acid reflux until it was not going away. I was lucky, since he was on the table, they were able to do everything they needed.

As we would learn, the clot traveled to an artery that happened to be clogged, and since he was pumped with drugs to break up the clot, that is what happened when it hit that clog. Here is the issue – he never knew he had an artery that was 99% clogged.

When the dust settled, and stints put in to improve blood flow, the questions began. Ever a diligent man, he went for his yearly testing and listened to the doctors instructions, but we quickly realized this was not enough, he needed to take hold of his heart health.

When I was recently approached AliveCor makers of the Kardia Mobile the timing could not have been more perfect and more timely.

Smartypants Vitamins: Teen Guy and Teen Girl Complete Vitamin Giveaway

SmartyPants Vitamins: Teen Guy and Teen Girl Complete Giveaway

When I was young I did not like to take vitamins and I did not understand why it was important to take them daily. As an adult, there are many vitamins that still make me wonder and question their purpose but by and large I have a good idea of the things that my body needs.

As a teenager, not only did I not know what my body needed, but I did not give it much consideration. As it turns out I could have eased some growing pains had I just taken an all in one vitamin like the new SmartyPants Teen Complete Vitamins.
