All Natural Pain Products That Really Work!

What if you didn’t have to take pain medication to manage your pain?

Life isn’t meant to be lived in pain, or to suffer though… Prescription pain medication, or even over the counter, can have unwanted side effects. Here are a few ideas that I have personally tried and that have worked wonders for me.

FGXpress Power Strips
I was recently sent a couple of samples of FGXpress Power Strips to try. Expecting them to be like other pain relief patches I have seen and tried I thought they would either feel hot or cold. They are neither hot nor cold. In fact when you put them on you don’t feel much of anything.

I applied a patch to my shoulder. After a while I forgot I was wearing it. They are very lightweight, bendable and stay on well. What I did notice after a few hours was that my shoulder was hurting less and less.

The next morning I woke up feeling great, no pain at all in my shoulder or neck!

What is an FGXpress Power Strip and why do they work?

They are the only product of their kind to be listed by the Federal Drug Administration as a Class 1 Medical Device for the treatment and management of pain.

They work by using a fusion of modern energy and ancient herbs, which promote the temporary relief of pain, and improved look and feel to the skin. They are made with a plant-based bio-degradable matrix that is non-toxic and water soluble.

Each strip has two layers. The first layer contains elemental Germanium particles. It is accepted and well understood that thermal energy is constantly emitted from the body. This energy passes through the strip unimpeded, strikes the germanium particles and is reflected back to the body as FAR Infrared energy which penetrates deep into the tissue and causes an increase heat. The key herbs infrared also allows for propagation of more blood, more oxygen to the blood, and most importantly allows the cells to export metabolic waste and “heal” themselves faster.

As heat is distributed, vessels dilate which increases the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to the cells. The second (adhesive) layer contains a proprietary blend of:
Fermented Korean Red Ginseng (This herb has shown to improve memory, improve immune system function, help manage stress and provide relaxation. It also helps with liver function, immune spots, and can even normalize blood pressure.)
Alpha 3 CMP Marine Phytoplankton (Another key element is a revolutionary Super food called Marine Phytoplankton. It contains hundreds of different carotenoids, minerals, amino acids and nutrients and is considered to be a “complete source of nutrition.)
Silver (Silver has been used for hundreds of years as an anti-microbial to fight bacteria and protect against infection.)

These ingredients are proven to help protect, nourish and even regenerate cells.

Pure Peppermint Oil & or Deep Blue Blend Oil from doTERRA

Pure peppermint essential oil works wonders for ridding yourself of headache pain or muscle aches. Just a few drops applied directly (or if you are sensitive or need to do a larger area you can mix with coconut oil) brings a tingling cold pain reliving sensation that lasts and dissolves pain away. It works even better when used in conjunction with Deep Blue Oil (a blend of: Blue Chamomile, Blue tansy, Camphor, Helichrysum, Osmanthus, Peppermint, Wintergreen).

For oils please visit: doTERRA

TIP! – For extra strength and deeper muscle penetration apply right after you dry off from a hot shower. *For both pain breaker and the oils you may also place a warm wet wash cloth over the area to help the products penetrate as well.

TIP! – For migraine – put the oils on the part of your head that hurts, then add an ice pack and lay down and relax… the pain should fade pretty quickly. Add more oil if needed.

*All of these products are anti-inflammatory in nature and work with your body to speed pain relief and encourage healing.

Happy Healing!

Sarah’s Top Picks: Non-Toxic Personal and Household Products!

For several years now I have been writing about how toxic our worlds have become including our own households. It has been an adventure in label reading and research trying to find alternatives to the everyday grocery and department store stocked chemical laden products we are used to.

 

My first goal started with finding products that have not been animal tested. From there I then added to that wanting ingredients that you could pronounce and recognize as well as know that they are from nature and not scientifically created and safe to use on your body and in your home.

 

I do not mean GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe – The FDA’s sticker of approval) I mean that they are actually healthy to use and not damaging to the body in any way.

 

The two are totally different categories as the FDA has approved levels of highly toxic, corrosive and carcinogenic substances in just about everything on the market.

 

It has been trial and error once finding items that meet the criteria.

Many products, though the ingredients are good, just don’t work well.

 

I have wasted a lot of time and money over the past few years. In doing so I think I can save you some legwork and give you a point in the right direction.

 

PRODUCTS THAT WORK AND KEEP YOU HEALTHY!


 

HOUSEHOLD CLEANING:

CLEAN by Healthy Home Company is the only product I seem to need!

CLEAN brings back memories of childhood, when ad campaigns all said that your dishes should be “squeaky clean”… with CLEAN, they actually squeak! Plus it smells like tangerines which makes you actually want to clean. Aromatic motivation!

*This has been incredible for my shower doors and for washing my dog! I don’t really need any other cleaner besides this. Though they also make one called TOUGH for stains and gooier or tougher jobs.

*This also works for laundry detergent!


 

PERSONAL CARE:

 LOTION: I am completely in love with the lotion from Healthy Home. It is super easy to find in your drawer because well, it’s named LOTION. Smooth, silky, fast absorbing – it works wonderfully on your entire body, face included.

 

BUY SPRAY: REPEL – Healthy Home – This spray on is non aerosol and smells nice. Bugs don’t seem to think so though. I put it on myself and my dog before going for a walk and we remain bite free!

 

SUNBLOCK: Yep, Healthy Home again. SPF 32 with no chemicals. Amazing! One of the biggest causes of skin cancer is not the sun, it is the chemicals used in commercial sunscreens. Highly recommend if you feel you must use a sunscreen.

DEODORANT: Ok this was the toughest of the tough for me to find. I have tried probably two dozen different kinds and most of them are just not effective and even in some cases caused me to sweat! FRESH from Healthy Homes is an alcohol base (so don’t shave your underarms right before putting it on – I found that out the hard way). Spray on, let it dry and you are good to go all day! Without the dangerous aluminum and other chemicals common in deodorants and antiperspirants. Though this isn’t an antiperspirant, I don’t seem to sweat while wearing it.

 

TOOTH PASTE:

Doterra’s ON GUARD tooth paste is amazing. It tastes like Celestial Seasoning’s Orange Zinger tea and truly helps freshen, clean and heal your mouth, gums and teeth. It contains essential oils and no fluoride.

SMILE – By Healthy Home is their new tooth paste which is also a fantastic choice.

 

MOUTHWASH:
Make your own – Pinch of pink salt, water, and 1 drop of essential oil (peppermint, on guard blend from doterra, wild orange, or other oil of your choice (make sure its one that can be taken internally). Swish, gargle and rinse!

 

SHAMPOO:
SHAMPOO (Named just that) From Healthy Home is fantastic. As is doTERRA’s Salon essentials. However, if you have color treated hair? These will suck the color out of them super fast. They are detoxifying shampoos and hair dye is toxic.
If your hair is color treated? – Best so far has been PomSmooth Shampoo by Juice Organics.

 

CONDITIONER:
PomSmooth Conditioner by Juice Organics Hair Care. Healthy and good!

 

FACIAL SCRUB:
Amber’s Earth Buffing Grains hands down beat most facials. It exfoliates and cleanses the skin leaving it smooth.

 

FACE WASH:
The Vermont Soap Company’s Honey Soap. Honey is a citrus clove blend with notes added from local honey. I use this right after the scrub.

 

PERFUMES:
Once you get used to using organic items I have to tell you, perfumes? Stink! I can’t even consider spraying myself with them anymore. As the fragrance industry is not regulated literally anything can be used, however toxic. I like to use oils. Essential oils by themselves though do not have much staying power, so it is best to mix them in an oil base. You can do it yourself or buy blends. My favorites so far come from Esoterica in New Orleans.  Money oil and Aquarius oil are what I personally choose, but of course choose your own!

 

MAKE UP:

Juice Beauty is where I have finally landed in buying make up. Commercial make up is terrible for your body. It can contain a whole array of chemicals where as this is organic. Their formulations are made without parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances. Their products are never tested on animals. It combines juice extracts and minerals.

 

SHAVING CREAM:

I have started just using the Vermont Honey Soap to shave. It works just as well without all the chemicals in shaving cream.

CHAPSTICK:
Moldavite Essence Lip Balm – 
by Gaia’s Healing Gifts. This is the smoothest lip balm I have ever used. It is not waxy at all and keeps your lips from getting chapped.


 

There is no need to flood your body with chemicals in order to maintain the status quo appearance…. Thanks to companies like these – We no longer have to die to be beautiful.
