Mg12 Pain Relief Creams

From time to time I like to share my experiences with alternative pain relief because even if it helps just one of you, I've done my job as a blogger.

Today's topic is Mg12 Pain Relief Creams. I was contacted by Dion about these products and he told me that they have helped his mother who happens to have fibromyalgia because they contain Dead Sea salts which have the highest concentration of Magnesium Chloride 
available on Earth.

I'm always happy when people reach out to me because I enjoy passing the information onto all of you so you can make your own decisions about the products, but the thing that really touched me about Dion is that he is passionate about helping people with this beast.

Mg12 has a lot of products on their website and I've used only a few of them so far in different forms. I've tried the Body Balm and MagneSoothe spray, which contains lavender oil. And the MagneSport roll on and balm. 

I do like them all, but I'm more partial to the Body Balm/ …

Why I Embrace My Insomnia

I'm sure that all of you have been in this situation:

Me: I had a lot of trouble sleeping last night.
Well Meaning Friend (WMF): Oh! I'm sorry to hear that! What's been on your mind lately?

First, don't get me wrong! It's nice that these WMFs care! But when the conversation leads to this I tend to just drop the subject for three reasons, one there is nothing major on my mind that is keeping me up at night. Two, I am all about sleep hygiene and have been ritual about it since the night I didn't need my mother tucking me in. And three, though I can understand that the WMFs may have sleep issues from time to time and think they understand, my sleep issue is chronic and it's not just about trying to fall asleep, it's also about staying asleep too.

For ever since I can remember I've had these issues. Even as a child I could not fall asleep, nor could I stay asleep. As an adult, I assumed my problem had to do with being in bed too long so I made it a point …

Topical Pain Relief

First, I have a BIG apology to get out of the way! I have been having issues trying to get in here to post and they are finally fixed! YAY!!!! I'm so sorry I've been missing in action!

Second, let's talk about fibro!

I haven't done a post about topical pain relief in quite some time because I haven't come across anything I've really liked until now.

Much of my pain is sciatica pain and shoulder pain from sitting or standing for too long and being hunched over on my desk writing. The shoulder pain is something that I'm used to dealing with on a daily basis, but the sciatic pain can throw me for a loop where all I want to do is find some relief.

I think I have found some relief from a product called Australian Dream Back Relief Cream. Now, for the sake of formalities, one, please consult your doctor before trying any new product for pain relief, and, two, I am not affiliated with this product in any way. I bought this product on my own accord and I'm givi…

New Year, New Outlook

2015 was not a good year for me and 2016 pretty much sucked too. I had a lot of happy moments during each of those years, but there were some very sad moments too. My health was also not the greatest because of the compounded stress and junk food I was putting in my body.
Many people do New Year's resolutions and my thoughts on that have been the same for a couple of decades. I used to get really excited about changing a bad habit or putting something positive into my life, like exercise. I'd start out the first week or two and do really well until life came along in week three to ruin it all. I'd get discouraged, but keep trying until February when I started to realize that the goal was just too much for me to handle and I'd give up. From about 1997 and on, I made a resolution to make no more resolutions and that worked well until now.
I've been giving my health some scrutiny these past six months. I've made strides in my anxiety and panic attacks. My stomach,…
