How Vitamin C KO’d My Sciatica

Posted by KreyolGirl on 5/22/2014 to Health
I have an old injury from my military days, which contributed to the degeneration of discs in my L4/L5 spinal segment. In October 2013, issues with my lower back flared up again. By February, one of the discs had herniated severely compressing my thecal sac and left lateral recess, causing a horrible case of sciatica. For almost two months, I’d lost the ability to get myself out of bed without assistance (and it still took about 30 minutes or so before I could calm my leg down enough to move). I could barely dress myself, sit or stand, and spent some days on crutches or used a cane. I hated the thought of going to bed, because I knew I’d be trapped in there, not to mention the pain worsened during the night as my body temp dropped and my muscles stiffened.

Natural Deodorants: What to Expect When You Switch

Posted by KreyolGirl on 3/7/2014 to Product Information
When making the switch to a more natural deodorant, you may experience heavier perspiration and even a fail day or two. Don't panic. If your body has been used to antiperspirants which, to a great degree, prevent perspiration, your body is now able to more freely release toxins and other buildups in the 'pit area. The longer you are antiperspirant free, the less perspiring you're likely to do as things balance out. That doesn't mean you won't perspire at all, though. Perspiring is a natural process of the body. A fail day or two might also signify the balancing of body chemistry, not so much that the deodorant itself has failed.
