    Is meditation music useful for your brain?

    I would think so. Music can be a wonderful de-stressor.

    Make Sure It's Not Iodine Deficiency

    So, life stinks sometimes - especially when someone tells you, "Maybe you need iodine," and you shrug it off thinking, "Nah, that can't possibly be it!" For the last 2-3 years, I've been having issues with many things: dreadful fatigue, cold hands/feet, dry/flaky skin, brittle nails, memory...

    Best Remedies for Type 2 Diabetes?

    This sounds like wise advice. Definitely the brisk walk thing because he seems to crash too hard if he works out for too long or it's too strenuous. Will definitely mention it to him. Why cut down on meat? Are you referring red meats or all meats? He avoids fruits like the plague, he knows...

    Best Remedies for Type 2 Diabetes?

    Kind of sounds like me as far as exercise. I like to go outside and sit and get a little bit of sun and fresh air, but with kids - that's not always a possibility. I'm usually chasing them around =P Yeah, discipline is hard. I have heard a lot of good about the Mediterranean Diet, but it's...

    Best Remedies for Type 2 Diabetes?

    I totally forgot about the Chromium Picolinate capsules and Ceylon Cinnamon! Actually, a few years ago, I remember I bought a bottle of Chromium Picolinate (the Solgar brand) for my husband, and it lasted him a long time, but it brought down his blood sugar better than Metformin or Glipizide...

    Dandelion Root and Routine Advice

    Welcome to Natmed! :) I'm not familiar with Creatine as I do not take it. Is the Dandelion Root you are planning to take in a tea form or capsule? I've been taking Organic Roasted Dandelion Root for pain I feel near my liver/gall bladder in organic tea form by Traditional Medicinals (1500mg)...

    full time new job insurance - please help

    To my knowledge, an HSA/Health Savings Account by itself is not health insurance, but an account where a contribution is made and I think at times your employer will match your contribution in some way. Although, if the HSA has a health insurance plan with it as a package deal then it could be...

    Best Remedies for Type 2 Diabetes?

    My husband was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes a couple years ago and he's been struggling a lot. He's of course taking pharmaceuticals to attempt to keep the blood sugar down, but lately they haven't been working. He's afraid that the doctor is only going to want to prescribe insulin injections...

    Best CBD Oil?

    Thank you! I'm happy to have another brand to look into as well. Never hurts to research what the options are. This isn't a market I know too terribly much about.

    Best CBD Oil?

    I have been looking into CBD oil and wanted to know of brands that were great quality and worked. I have heard great stuff about Charlotte's Web and Medterra. Is there anything I should know before taking CBD? Currently researching what I can.

    COVID Natural Remedies?

    Thanks :) I finished up the last of my steroid and antibiotic today and it remains to be seen whether I'll have to stay on the anti-epileptic medication or not. I definitely will until I'm better, I just hate taking it. This makes you want to sleep all day long. My husband and I are taking...

    COVID Natural Remedies?

    Sounds like I have the best possible stuff then to combat this. Just gotta keep doing what I can. I think it drives me crazy what my schedule is like...sleep until like 7 a.m. - let the chickens out, go back to bed, sleep until 1 p.m. or 2p.m., wake up, shower, and then fall asleep again at...

    daily health log for dogs?

    You may want to try etsy - there is a pretty big printable market there. Maybe if I get well soon and have some downtime, I wouldn't mind making one to put in my etsy store. What kind of stuff are you looking to have on it?

    COVID Natural Remedies?

    Sorry to hear that you have family members going through this, too. It's totally not fun - worse than I thought it'd be. I'm afraid of lingering effects, praying I'll come out of this strong, but it's going to be a process. Yes, we have a micro-particle colloidal silver generator so we've been...
