Boost Your Immune System Naturally to Fight Colds and Flu



Cold and flu season is here, which means it’s time to take extra precautions to stay as healthy as possible. Even if you received a recommended flu shot, there are additional ways to put your immune system in its best condition to battle against infection. The experts at NurseWise, a national multilingual nurse triage and health education provider, are pleased to offer five tips to boost your immune system naturally so you can spend the holidays with family and friends – and not the flu.

Snooze like Sleeping Beauty. Studies reveal strong evidence that getting the proper amount of sleep is crucial to the health of your body and maintaining your immune system. In fact, lack of sleep can actually put your immune system in the same state of weakness as stress and impact your white blood cells, which are crucial to your body’s defense. Experts recommend seven to eight hours of sleep each night to maintain physical and mental health. Lack of sleep not only weakens your immune system, it also increases your risk for numerous chronic illnesses.

Diminish the “D” deficiently. As we get less sunshine in an effort to avoid skin cancer, many people are deficient in vitamin D and don’t even know it. The impact of vitamin D on the immune system has become clearer in recent years. Along with being connected to many serious diseases, low vitamin D levels also allow you to be more susceptible to becoming sick because it is an immune system regulator. You can get a blood test to check your D levels, and if they’re low, talk to your doctor about supplements.

Pop those probiotics. The gastrointestinal tract has an enormous impact on the immune system, so keeping your gut in order helps to keep the rest of your body in top fighting condition. Probiotics are “good” bacteria that help keep your gut balanced. In addition to helping reduce inflammation and preventing infection in the body, probiotics can also decrease the severity of colds and flu. They may also increase the production of antibodies, which fight bacteria and viruses. Probiotics can be taken as a supplement or found in fermented foods, including yogurt. Always talk with your doctor first because probiotics are not regulated by the FDA.

Munch on mushrooms. In addition to beefing up your fruit and veggie intake so your body is getting the nutrients needed to battle the bugs of the season, studies also show certain mushrooms, including shiitake and maitake, have a positive impact on the immune system. Many mushrooms are rich in essential vitamins (including vitamin C and B vitamins) and minerals. Certain mushrooms, including shiitake and maitake, also have antiviral and immune system enhancing effects. Mushrooms have been used medicinally for thousands of years and each is known for varied health benefits, so throw them in a cooked dish or eat them raw.

Shy away from sugar. Studies show that your sweet tooth might be just as bad for your immune system as it is for your waist. Eating or drinking too much sugar suppresses your immune system and its ability to fight off attacks. Almost immediately, there is a drastic decline in your body’s defense when you ingest sugar, which can last for up to six hours. Experts also suggest saying “so long” to any sugar when sick, since it knocks down your immune system and the ability to heal even more.

Advil® at Work “Sickest Day Ever” Sweepstakes (giveaway ends 11/23/15)


Sick Dog

I love this time of the year – the cooler weather, colorful autumn leaves and the start to the holiday season. I also loathe this time of year because eventually we all catch colds. Right now, as I write this, I am dealing with a cold. I’m very congested. Thankfully I’m not coughing or sneezing, but I am very stuffy. So much so that when I go to bed I have to keep changing what side I am sleeping on so that the opposite side of my nose gets unstuffed – at least for a few minutes until the other side gets stuffy. Ugh!

Not only that I am dealing with an sinus headache that keeps coming and going.

Currently I am taking Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain (formerly known as Advil® Congestion Relief). I take just one pill every 4-6 hours when needed. So far I’ve only been taking it at night before I go to bed and first thing in the morning. The rest of the day I’m not that bad. I think its because I’m upright and moving around.

Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain provides fast, powerful relief for a number of severe cold, flu, and sinus symptoms. Thank goodness it’s not the flu!

Advil® Liqui-Gels® is my choice when it comes to headaches. I find that they work faster than any other product on the market. They contain ibuprofen, which is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that has been repeatedly proven to reduce pain safely and effectively when taken as directed.

Tissue box

Because I use Advil® for my every day aches, pains and headaches, that is why I reached for Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain when this cold kicked in. It is the only over-the-counter cold and sinus medicine that combines the speed and strength of Advil® with a proven nasal decongestant for fast, effective relief of severe cold symptoms including, sinus pressure and headache. And let me tell you, my sinus headaches are REALLY bad at times. So bad they will wake me up from a sound sleep. In addition to the sinus headaches my mouth also hurts. It has something to do with the sinus passages in my mouth. I learned about it when I went to the dentist thinking I had a toothache. It turned out to be my sinuses.

Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain contains an ingredient called Phenylephrine, which is a nasal decongestant that reduces swelling and allows the nasal and sinus airways to expand to their natural state for easier breathing. It really helps to clear my stuffed nosed quickly enough.

Please note that Advil® Sinus Congestion & Pain is for children and adults ages 12+.

I cannot afford to be sick either. I need to get to work each day. Unlike my husband who has sick days (with pay), I don’t get paid for calling out sick.

My husband is rarely sick (thankfully) but since he HAS to take sick days by the end of the year, he takes a sick day here and there.

Just one pill provides four hours of non-drowsy relief.

Just one pill provides four hours of non-drowsy relief.

New Pillow Specially Designed for Head and Neck Pain Relief (plus 30% discount code)


Hubby enjoying a REAL bed at a hotel.

Hubby enjoying a REAL bed at a hotel.

Sleep… it’s a wonderful thing.

I love to sleep. Some days there is nothing better then snugling up under a soft comforter and resting your head on a comfy pillow. Sadly getting comfortable in our bed is easier said than done.

My husband and I sleep on a sofa bed. Fourteen years ago we gave up the bedroom for our kids. We originally converted the dining room into a bedroom but as the kids got older the room got smaller and smaller. The only option we had was to give up the bedroom and sleep in the living room.

We’ve slept on a sofa bed, then air mattresses, then a daybed with pop-up trundle, then back to a sofa bed.

The daybed with pop-up trundle was the most comfortable because they were real beds with real mattresses. The downside was that guests had to sit on the daybed in lieu of a real couch. Daybeds are not comfy like couches are. In addition my husband and I couldn’t sleep next to each other since we were in two separate beds. We ended up going back to the sofa bed.

If you have ever spent a night sleeping on a pull out sofa bed you know how incredibly uncomfortable they are. There is nothing worse than sleeping with a metal bar in your shoulder. Sigh…

We can’t do much about our actual bed, so we try and make up for a better bed in other ways including soft sheets, a snugly comforter and comfy pillows.

When it comes to pillows, I’m the worse. I’m very picky. I need my head to be at a certain angle or I cannot sleep. The pillows have to be a certain firmness too.

My husband on the other hand is less picky. As long as it’s comfortable he’s happy with any pillow he gets.

I was sent to review a new pillow that was specifically designed for head and neck relief.

Before I share our experience with the pillow, let me give you a little background about how the pillow came to be.


Andy Barkin is a Southern California product design engineer and inventor with several patents and products under his belt. A couple of years ago, his uncle asked him if he might design something that would relieve his neck pain and discomfort and help him sleep better.

Andy slept on the idea. He explains, “When you’re on your back, you only want a small amount of support under your head. Too much support and you block off your airway. You also want a bit of gentle, soft support under the neck in the cervical area. Not too much, and it can’t be too stiff. And then when you’re on your side, you need a higher level of support to proper align your head, neck, and spine. That’s why we fold our pillow or place our hands under our head – trying to get our neck back into alignment with our spine.”

Andy went through numerous prototypes where he tried different foams, shapes, densities, and thicknesses until he perfected his final prototype. He knew he was close when his uncle wouldn’t give him his early prototype model back.

His design, which is patent-pending, supports you as you change positions through the night.

Andy created the Sleep With Us Pillow. The pillow comes with a washable cover over a viscoelastic base, and two high-resiliency inserts which are molded inside of the base.

There are two components to the pillow. The protective pillowslip which is easily unzipped and fully machine-washable. In the event that this does not clean your pillow, you may place the pillow in a large drum washer on a hand wash or gentle cycle. Use cold water and allow to air dry.


The molded inserts respond to your movements throughout the night. As you roll to your side, the Sleep With Us Pillow provides the higher level of support you need.

The pillow also utilizes an ultra-low odor material that minimizes any unpleasant smell. Airing out the new pillow for 24 hours is recommended before use.

I have a pillow that I am pleased with, but my husband’s pillow was starting to resemble a pancake because it was almost completely flat (it didn’t start out that way). I gave my husband the Sleep With Us Pillow to try out and help me with the review.

My husband snores – A LOT. In fact he snores every night and it’s a huge reason why I can never seem to get a good night’s sleep. I find that if he sleeps on his left shoulder, facing away from me, he doesn’t snore at all. He’s totally silent. If he sleeps on his back or his right shoulder – oh my – he can snore the roof off our condo!

I found that after he started to use this pillow he didn’t toss and turn as much as he used to. Not tossing as much meant that he stayed on his left shoulder for longer periods of time and I was able to get a good night’s sleep. I wonder if his head being in a more comfortable position is the reason why he doesn’t toss and turn all night long? I have no scientific proof. It’s just a hypothesis that I have.

I have not slept on the pillow personally, so I have been asking my husband his thoughts on the pillow.


As per my husband – the pillow is very comfortable. He loves the firmness of the pillow. It’s firm but not too firm. It’s still very comfortable to rest your head on.

As far as neck aches, my husband tells me the pillow does seem to help in that aspect (nothing can save our backs/shoulders from the dreaded bar).

He tells me that he feels more rested when he wakes up in the morning (I suspect that has a lot to do with less tossing and turning). He also likes that he doesn’t have to “plump up” the pillow or bend it in different ways just to make it comfortable to rest his head on.

I had mentioned “odor” earlier in the post but my husband never picked up on any unpleasant smells. He said it smelled like a pillow. LOL!

The Sleep With Us Pillow fits any standard size pillow case which is a nice “bonus” too. Sometimes specialty pillows are too big or too thick to fit a regular pillow case.

My husband has nothing but great things to say about the Sleep With Us Pillow. If I didn’t just recently get a new pillow for myself I would seriously consider getting one for myself.

If you would like to learn more about this pillow please visit www.BuySleepWithUs.com. The pillow is available at Amazon.com.

If you purchase the pillow through Amazon and use the code BARKIN30 upon check out you can get 30% off (while supplies last).

Celebrate Your Cat ($100 AMEX gift card giveaway ends 11/7/15)


*Disclosure: Post is sponsored by Merial, a world-leading animal health company, providing a comprehensive range of products to enhance the health and well-being of pets, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.


Padmé (L) and Velcro (R)

Today is a great day to celebrate and help protect your furry feline friend.

I have not one but FIVE feline family members. We never started out with the intention of having so many cats, it just happened that way.

We had one cat that we adopted from the local animal shelter. His name was Pixie. We didn’t name him – the shelter did. He was a HUGE cat, but he had a “tiny” name.

We felt that Pixie needed a friend so we adopted a feral kitten we named Velcro. No sooner did we adopt Velcro, Pixie passed away. So we adopted another cat, Kitty, so that Velcro had a friend.

My family and I used to visit our local animal shelter often to feed the animals treats, take the dogs for a walk and socialize with the cats. That is how Padmé came to live with us. We saw her and fell in love with her. We just had to have her.



To be perfectly honest I have no idea how Anakin came to be. We were at the shelter, saw him and next thing you know he’s living with us.

Our youngest, Bella, was a foster kitten. We took her and her sister, Emma, in when they were only a day old. Bella was the runt of the litter and very tiny. She’s now a happy, well-loved and very spoiled cat. All our cats are.

Their health is very important to us. We do what we can to ensure that they are always healthy. That includes getting them up to date on their rabies vaccinations.

Even though our cats are indoor cats, they still have access outdoors. They enjoy lounging in the sun on our balcony.

We might be three floors up, but that doesn’t stop other critters, like skunks and raccoons and other cats from making their way to our balcony – critters that could be infected with rabies.


Padmé (L), Velcro (C) and Bella (R)

Did you know that in 2013, nearly 500 domestic animals within the United States contracted the rabies virus? Cats accounted for more than half of these cases.1

Merial, the maker of PUREVAX® Feline Rabies vaccines, is encouraging cat owners to ensure that their cats are currently vaccinated against rabies infection (if overdue, now is the perfect time to make an appointment to see the vet).

Two of our cats are due for their rabies vaccination. One cat already has a vet appointment set up. I need to make an appointment for the other one. As you can imagine, with five cats, and a dog, we are at the vet often. Our cats know the routine and are usually pretty good with their vet visits. Only two cats give the vet a hard time – Kitty and Bella. Kitty usually can be calmed down. Bella on the other hand – let’s just say she is infamous at the vet’s office. She’s not a fan of the vet since she goes there the most due to health issues.

I would like to encourage all cat owners to help protect their wonderful cats by making sure they are up to date on their rabies vaccinations. If you haven’t done so already, pick up the phone today and make an appointment.

To help educate cat owners about rabies prevention, Merial has created an interactive Feline Defense game. You can find it at http://bit.ly/1Vl6Or5. You can also use the site to find a veterinarian near you if you don’t already have one for your pet.

Support Susan G. Komen Foundation’s Breast Cancer Research with TracFone


I am participating in a VIN campaign for TracFone. I am receiving a fee for posting; however, the opinions expressed in this post are my own. I am in no way affiliated with TracFone and do not earn a commission or percent of sales.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Most people are well aware that October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I consider myself very blessed only to know one person personally who had breast cancer. When you think of the staggering statistics about this type of cancer, it’s amazing that I’ve only known one person. Believe it or not that person was my own grandfather. That’s right – men can get breast cancer too.

Back in the early 80’s it was discovered that my grandfather had a tumor in his left breast. A biopsy confirmed it was malignant and he had to have his entire left breast removed.

I’m assuming such an operation on a man is a lot different than a woman. He was left with a huge scar across his chest. He looked a bit lopsided too but a breast implant wouldn’t have worked in his case.

If the man in your life discovers any bumps or lumps in his breast area he should get it checked out. Don’t let him think that breast cancer can’t happen to men – because it does!

I like how to help raise awareness and funds for research, many companies offer pink products where a percentage of the sale goes towards breast cancer research.

TracFone, one of America’s leading no-contract cell phone service providers, has a lovely pink phone which is available at Dollar General stores and online nationwide in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. The phone is available for $9.00 at Dollar General (yes, you read that correctly – $9!) and airtime service plan is required for activation. TracFone is donating 10% of the sale of the special Pink LG306 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s important breast cancer research.

TracFone Pink LG306

For the past six years, TracFone has shown it’s commitment to this important cause. They will give the foundation a minimum guaranteed donation of $25,000.

Our kids used to have TracFones phones years ago. It was their first phones. We loved that there was no contract involved, especially because they were children. We also loved that we could buy plans that were suitable for our kids. For example, our daughter is older and she discovered texting first so we needed a bigger plan for her that included texting. Our son only used his phone for emergencies for the most part.

We never had a problem with TracFone as far as their service was concerned. They have nationwide coverage and a dependable service.

To be honest, I don’t use my phone often and my husband and I both consider going to a TracFone when our current contract expires. We’re tired of paying a huge bill. We would rather have something more customized to us. Plus there are no activation or cancellation fees, and we can change our plans according to our individual needs and not get stuck in a plan that clearly doesn’t suit our needs.

They even have Data-only Cards and Text-only cards.

In addition to being a no-contract phone service provide, TracFone also offers Unlimited Carryover®, allowing customers to keep unused minutes, text and data as long as the cell phone service is active and in use within any six month period. I love this because there is nothing worse that unused minutes going to waste.

If you are interested in purchasing the Pink LG306 TracFone visit your local Dollar General store or check them out online. There is a store locator on their website – DollarGeneral.com.

New Air Scents from Venta



Several months ago I did a review for a product called Venta. Venta is an “air washer.” It cleans the air of dirt, dust, pollen and other things and released purified, clean air.

Venta is both an air purifier and humidifier. Not only does it release clean air it also releases moisture into the air. With the long, cold, harsh winter fast approaching a humidifier is a “must” to keep your skin from drying out. Heat robs the air of valuable moisture. A humidifier replaces the moisture into the air.

In case you missed my previous review, here is some additional information about Venta.

The Venta Airwasher is the original dual design humidifier and purifier, invented in Germany in 1981.  The Airwashers are still 100% manufactured in Germany, so with each Venta Airwasher comes the high-end engineering, quality and reliability typical of German manufacturing.

Venta’s Airwasher, a filterless humidifier and air purifier, is designed to work in harmony with your heating and cooling units to properly rehydrate the air, eliminate dust, and remove allergens so you can relax, knowing that the whole family is breathing easier at home.

When you choose the Venta Airwasher, you will be receiving a hygienic, premium quality, low-maintenance, eco-friendly machine that is extremely simple to use, fill and clean.  There are NO filters to change or white dust with the Venta Airwasher and minimal power usage.

The Venta Airwasher will never over-humidify your environment.  With our revolutionary cold evaporation method, the air in your environment takes only the moisture it needs from the Venta Airwasher, and no more.  This unique feature makes the Airwasher an ideal air purifier, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

From the very first time I went to clean out our Venta and replace the water I was convinced that it was working. What I found inside was a layer of “sludge” (for lack of a better word) which would be the dust, dirt and debris the Venta was collecting from the air we breath and trapping it in the water.


The black square is where I first wiped it clean. The gray areas are with the dirt, dust and debris are (prior to me cleaning it out).

This wasn’t a freak incident. Every time I cleaned out the Venta and added new water this is what I found. It’s pretty unsettling to think that my family and I, as well as our pets, are breathing whatever this is in.

For this reason we keep our Venta going 24/7. It’s easy to use and maintain.

Venta has a new way of adding freshness to your home. I’m not talking just clean air – I’m talking about fresh and relaxing scents.

Venta has produced their very own line of fragrances made specifically for the Venta. Each fragrance is made from 100% natural essential oils.


The six new fragrance options include;

Venta Scents

Relaxing – A stimulating blend of cinnamon, cassia, carnation and grapefruit that helps you unwind after a long day.

Citrus Garden – An invigorating and refreshing fragrance made from fresh orange zest.

Eucalyptus – A comforting blend of eucalyptus, peppermint & tea plant oils that’s soothing during the cold & flu season.

Winter Dream – Let the fragrance of cinnamon warm you on cold winter nights.

Vanilla – A blend of vanilla & citrus that makes any place smell like home.

Refreshing – An invigorating & stimulating citrus blend made from real fruit zest.

These are the ONLY oils tested and approved for the Venta Airwasher. Do not use your own oils because they could damage your Venta Airwasher.

Each of the Venta Aromatherapy scents comes with three 1.7 oz. bottles. You an either buy three of your favorite scent or try a one of their variety scent packages. Three bottles sell for $19.99.

I was sent all of the scents to try out with our Venta. I can tell you that a little bit goes a long way and each bottle should last a decent amount of time.

Venta is available in different sizes

Venta is available in different sizes

The fragrances are easy to use. Simply pour 2-4 cap fulls into your Venta. That’s it! You can’t get any easier than that.

You an adjust the scent by the amount of fragrance you put into your machine. Most scents I go for 3 cap fulls. There are certain scents I’ll go with 2 cap fulls because they are a bit stronger.  My husband suffers from migraines and scent is one of his triggers, so I adjust the scents according to him. So far, so good. Nothing has triggered a migraine.

Vanilla seems to by my family’s favorite scent out of all of them. It really does put the scent of vanilla in the air. My kids tell me it smells like I’m making cookies. It’s no wonder it’s their favorite.

Winter Dream is my personal favorite. I think it’s because of the subtle scent of cinnamon. Cinnamon, to me, is a “homey” scent.

It’s nice to fill your home with not only fresh, clean, air but also a welcoming (or relaxing) scent. I think Venta’s fragrances a wonderful addition to the Venta system.
