Tru Align

Unfortunately, I’ve had one rather difficult and constant companion this lifetime… pain. For over a decade, I've been plagued with bulging disks in my neck, rotator cuff tears and the sting of sciatica pain running down my leg. So, when my chiropractor developed a simple treatment to fix my aching back, I had to try it out. Sure, my kids gave me funny looks when they saw their mother lying face down on a set of five cushions in our living room, but I didn’t care – I was healing myself!

 

What is this unbelievable pain-reducing device? It’s called Kacelia Tru-Align Body System and it’s been clinically proven to alleviate pain and stiffness of the upper, mid, and lower back area, groin, sacroiliac, neck shoulders and TMJ (jaw). According to the Kacelia website, “Using specially engineered cushions, the system supports the body at key points allowing gravity to exert a downward pressure restoring the spinal curves and good posture.” 

 

The beauty is in the simplicity. All you have to do is lay on 5 contoured pillows for 20 minutes every day while your spine gently lengthens, disks open up and healthy posture returns. Honestly, I’ve have had multiple cortisone injections and physical therapy for years, but this is the only treatment that has alleviated my chronic back pain. The Tru-Align pillows are so comfortable, I usually fall asleep in a matter of minutes and wake up to a timer. As a note, it may take several weeks for this product to help with long-term injuries, so you must commit to a daily schedule and stick to it. And, it’s important to improve strength and flexibility as you age, so in addition to the Tru-Align, I recommend adding yoga and/or Tai Chi classes to strengthen your core.         

 

If you have back discomfort, Tru-Align is the product you need to finally relieve your body and life of pain. It is worth the investment of $395 for a unit. kacelia.com

Resq Organics

 

I travel to expos all over the country offering workshops and at one of my recent expos, I gratefully discovered RESQ Organics. This product contains all natural ingredients and a "secret weapon" that rapidly heals almost any kind of skin ailment - manuka honey. Let's face it, as we age, strange things happen on the surface of the skin including itchy irritations, dry patches and scabby areas. RESQ Organic Skin trreatment fixes everything after only a couple of days.

 

Recently, I noticed a rough spot had formed on the side of my forehead. I tried using my standard cleanser, exfoliant and night cream, but the patch increased in size and was getting worse. I purchased the jar of RESQ Organic Skin Treatment and rubbed a tiny bit on my forehead my skin cleared up in 2 days! Now, I keep the green jar handy and use it on myself and the kids for everything skin... athlete's foot, cuts, burns, and even sunburns. This is one of the best healing salves on the market and the company has a full line of products for men and pets as well. I also tried their RESQ Shampoo and was delighted to report that it leaves my hair soft and supple because it does not contain detergent, soap or chemicals. The only negative comment about this product is that it smells "milky" because it does not contain perfumes.

 

A jar of RESQ Organics Skin Treatment 4 oz. can be purchased for $40 at resqorganics.com A bottle of RESQ Shampoo is $25. 

 

 

 Journey of Souls  

 

Have you ever wondered what life is like after we pass from this Earth? If so, read Journey of Souls by Michael Newton. Newton compiled data from hundreds of patients who were interviewed while under deep hpynotic regression and synthesized the information to paint a detailed picture of the journey we take as discarnate souls. He outlines the clear-cut path after death and offers groundbreaking discoveries that clear up the mystery of life in the Spirit world.  

 

According to Journey of Souls, after we die, we travel back through space as a spark of light to rejoin our loving guide and soul cluster, a small group of souls (10 - 12) who are learning and developing at the same rate. Each of us individually determine a plan of study before coming to Earth and this coursework often includes heartache and pain designed to help us evolve and embody key lessons. After death, the soul carefully evaluates its past interactions, the quality of its human relationships and success in meeting specific goals.  

 

If you have ever been curious about what happens to the soul after it leaves the body, read this book. Even though the book was written in 1994, I found the novel fascinating and couldn't put it down. In many ways, it gave me great comfort and understanding in knowing our eternal connection to Source and positions death as a continutation of our "school of learning." I highly recommend this book! Journey of Souls is available on Amazon for $12.

There is nothing worse than looking down at your hands and noticing that horrible small brown spots have emerged on the skin... age spots. Right when I hit midlife, these dark pigment areas popped up all over my hands as the result of many hot, sunny days tanning in my teens. I was mortified, feeling older than old and I just wanted them to go away. I know that expensive laser treatments can help, but I don't want to spend thousands of dollars in the doctor's office to have the top layer of my skin burned off.

 

This year, at the New Life Expo in New York City, I discovered Johnathon's Sprouts Broccoli Infused Skin Salve, an exciting, alternative solution for reducing age spots. The owner of the company told me that the handmade cream would not only keep my hands soft in the winter, but the natural chemicals in broccoli lighthen up the spots. I was up for the challenge. Here is my hand after only a couple of weeks of using the salve. I have super fair skin, but most of the spots are already gone! You need to keep using the salve or the spots will come back, but it's not very expensive cream and it feels very hydrating. I will keep you posted on the progress.

Johnathan's Sprouts Broccoli Infused Skin Salve- johnathonsorganic.com $15.
