Cassandra's Review- I was so excited to try this desk fan by Ozeri because I already knew they make great quality products. Imagine a world where no one has to get out of bed or chair to move the fan. Yes This is also really quiet and perfect for someone like me who loves to sleep with a touch of white noise. The kids loves the remote feature and it is also good for elderly and disabled people as well. I think it is an awesome gift for the up and coming spring and summer months. 

I received the product mentioned above for free in order to review it. The opinions are all my own and not dissuaded by the company in any way.   












Rootology Review and some tips for taming you winter allergies




ABOUT ROOTOLOGY - BREATHE FREE (www.rootologyhealth.com) 
Based on the practice of Chinese Herbology, Rootology's concentrated herbal extracts offer immediate, non-drowsy nasal & sinus support against head colds, chronic conditions and allergies to irritants like: Pollen, dander, dust, mold, pollution, chemicals and wildfire smoke. The ingredients work individually and in synergy to immediately address sneezing, congestion, sinus pressure, runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, and headache caused by allergies, head cold or chronic conditions. Notable ingredients include: Xanthium Fruit, Magnolia Flower, Forsythia Fruit, and Wild Chrysanthemum Flower. 

Cassandra's Review- This is a natural and effective way to help with what ails you. The capsules are huge and would probably be hard for most kids over 12 to swallow. They do not have a very good taste or after taste. I think it is way better then having to spray things in ones nose or drops in eyes. They are a little less costly compared to most other meds. 

Tips for Taming Your Winter Allergies
Cockroaches, dust mites, dander, and mold can trigger cold-and flu-like symptoms, said immunologist Dr. Joan Lehach

As frigid temperatures and unusually snowy conditions over much of the nation continue to keep many Americans indoors, a veteran allergy expert reminds us that staying inside may keep us warm, but it also us gives us prolonged exposure to four powerful indoor allergens capable of triggering a variety of cold and flu-like symptoms.

"If you experience more than nine days of continuing congestion, coughing, sneezing, watery eyes and nasal drip, chances are good that you are reacting to the presence of either dust mites, cockroaches, animal dander, or mold somewhere in your home, office or school," said Dr. Joan Lehach, integrative medicine physician specializing in allergy, asthma and clinical immunology at Montefiore Medical Center in New York. "Many times, and especially in the inner city where populations are dense, all four of these allergens are present and must be addressed."

Dr. Lehach's tips for controlling your indoor allergy symptoms:

1. Mold inspection: The first step for controlling your allergy symptoms is to do a little inspection for mold inside the house. The most common places to find it are on shower curtains, wallpaper, carpets and the sink. Mold also grows in the drain, which can be cleaned with bleach and detergent.

2. Cockroach hunt: Studies have found cockroach allergens to be present in at least half of inner city homes and in nearly three-quarters of inner city schools. Cockroaches do not have to be alive to trigger respiratory problems. Dust containing molecules of crushed carcasses can still cause problems for humans. Professionals can be consulted to discover and clean out hidden colonies. Nesting areas and pathways where cockroaches may have been traveling should be thoroughly cleaned.

3. Dry up dust mites: Keep your indoor humidity at 50 percent or lower, as higher humidity will breed dust mites. A humidity gauge can be purchased for about $5.

4. Filter out animal dander: If you have a pet allergy, you probably are going to need to be on allergy medications until you can consult with an allergist and see if you want to be desensitized or not. Meanwhile, a small HEPA air purifier placed in each room will keep airborne dander from spreading throughout the house. Mice or other fur-bearing pests living under the house or in the attic must be searched for and removed.

5. Get symptom relief: A mixture of sinus-friendly Chinese herbs, like Rootology, can temporarily halt most allergy symptoms in less than 20 minutes. Rootology can also be used to control winter cold and flu symptoms.

6. Start an immune-building diet: Eliminate foods that are weakening your immune system, like processed and packaged foods, and start eating immune boosting, allergy fighting foods, like blackberries and blueberries. Also important are multivitamin supplements and digestive enzymes to help you access more of the nutrients in the food you consume.

7. Get sufficient sleep: Our immune system is very "sleep-driven", and allergies are precipitated by weakened immunity.

8. Stay hydrated: When you become dehydrated you get dry nasal mucosa and can develop microscopic cracks in the nasal lining, making it easier for allergens to enter your bloodstream.

9. Use the "hot" setting: Wash your bedding in hot water (at least 130 degrees) to properly neutralize allergens.

10. Wash your face and hands: Not only to maintain popularity with family, friends, and co-workers, but if there is dander, mold, or dust on your face or hands, chances are good that you will end up inhaling it.

'Samples for Symptoms'
Dr. Lehach has arranged with the manufacturer to send free samples of Rootology to any winter allergy sufferer who Tweets a photo of themselves coughing, sneezing, wiping their watery eyes, or blowing their runny nose, while supplies last. Use the hash tags: "#BreatheFree with #Rootology".

Conflicting Hearts Book blast and Giveaway

ConflictingHeartsbannerconflicting hearts newRachel Hayward hoped to have a quiet thirtieth birthday alone. Instead, fate had different plans. Caught in traffic and late for work, Rachel takes her eyes off the road to gawk at an accident and rear-ends the car in front of her. Sick over having ruined her day, she lowers her head and waits for the driver to begin a tirade over her stupidity. Instead, a kind man taps on her window showing genuine concern. The brief colliding encounter suddenly starts a relationship between two strangers that takes off under odd circumstances. When intimacy begins, their relationship turns into a conflicting set of needs. Ian is tenderhearted and respectful, but Rachel desires aggressiveness from a man. The clash of desires threatens to tear them apart. As a result, she is faced with the decision to leave the man she loves or finally confront the painful secret of her childhood. Author Notes: Conflicting Hearts touches on a taboo subject, but one that is very real to many adult women in today's society. Statistically speaking, the shocking reality is that one out of every four girls will be sexually abused before their 18th birthday. Though this is a fictional work, that actually documents a factual event in another person's life, it has the power to open the eyes of readers to better understand those who have suffered abuse as a child. Written with a sprinkle of humor, believable characters, brutal reality, and sizzling romance, it is a book that some claim should be read by every woman. In the end, healing and healthy relationships are possible for those victims who seek help.
