PRODUCT REVIEW: MYOBUDDY MASSAGER PRO

I recently discovered MyoBuddy Massager Pro. My husband suffers from bulging discs. He works long hours and work and most days the chiropractor is closed when he gets off.  I was hoping this would give him some relief on the days he can't make it to an appointment.


About MyoBuddy Massager Pro:

The MyoBuddy Pro percussive massager places professional grade deep tissue, warming, trigger point and cutting edge vibrational massage technology in the palm of your hands, providing instant relief to muscle soreness and myofascial pain.
  • Soothe Sore Muscles & Ease Myofascial Pain
  • Treat Trigger Points & Everyday Aches & Pains
  • Warms Muscles Pre-Workout & Quicker Workout Recovery
  • Reduces Stress, Anxiety & Insomnia
  • Includes 1 White Plush Bonnet and 1 Blue Lotion Bonnet
  • Free Shipping
  • 30-day Money Back Guarantee
  • 1-Year Warranty
My first impression was it definitely look a lot different then what the chiropractor uses on my husband. I tested it out on my hubby as soon as I received it. Its very easy to use and has 3 speed settings low, medium, and high. The low speed was nice but I felt like I needed more and so did hubby. Medium speed is the one we loved the most. High speed was just a little too much! It comes with two covers, one you can use to add lotion and apply directly to your skin. 


Overall, we are very impressed and it will definitely help my hubby when he has back pain. The great thing about the MyoBuddy is that not only can you use it on your back but you can use it on hamstrings, quads, calves, and any other area you want to! MSRP is $399.99 and worth every single penny.

Review: Handcrafted Pura Vida Bracelets

I was recently given the chance to review two bracelets from Pura Vida.

I am sure you are wondering what Pura Vida means so here is a little information about them!

“Pura Vida” is Spanish for “pure life”, a Costa Rican philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures. Slowing things down, celebrating good fortune, and refusing to take anything for granted embodies this laidback lifestyle. “Pura Vida” means choosing to live life to the fullest. It’s more than just a saying... it’s a lifestyle.

Every Pura Vida Bracelet is carefully handcrafted by artisans in Costa Rica. The commitment to their craft is conveyed through the quality of their work. The artisan’s dedication to the “pura vida” way of life is demonstrated in the seemingly endless color combinations and innovative styles. Each bracelet is as unique as the person wearing it.

I received anchor bracelet and a rose gold circle bracelet. I am very impressed with the quality. They are both very stylish! I have received lots of compliments. The bracelets are simple and so beautiful. They will go with just about anything. They have a wide variety of colors and styles. I am sure you will find many things you will LOVE!

Nighttime cravings & how to combat them!

NIGHTTIME CRAVINGS CAN SABOTAGE THE BEST DIET PLANS

Three common health problems caused by late night eating along with lifestyle changes to effectively combat these cravings.


Beverly Hills, CA   Many people find themselves eating late at night, even if they are not hungry. Nighttime cravings often sabotage the best-intended diet and weight-loss plans and can cause some unexpected health problems, see below. Along with some easy lifestyle solutions on how to outsmart nighttime cravings, the proprietary, science-based ingredients in Qurb™ Shot PM (www.qurbshot.com) can also help avoid late night snacking. Qurb™ PM Shot has been formulated to work effectively at night, often the downfall for many dieters after a day of careful eating and exercise. The PM shot does not contain any caffeine and has 100 mg of Theanine which has been scientifically shown to relax the body and mind.

Late night eating can cause such health problems as:

·         Eating late at night causes weight gain and loss of sleep
The body’s metabolism works all day long while you are up and active. Metabolism is much slower at night and we don’t burn the calories that we do during the day which can cause weight gain. Also, research has found that the digestive process can have serious implications on sleep cycle and can cause you to wake more often.

·         Eating at night can cause increased acid reflux
When you lay down with food in your belly, it is easier for acid to spill out of a full stomach – even if you don’t have acid reflux. It takes a few hours for food to fully digest.

·         Eating at night can throw off your internal clock
Eating late when you normally should be asleep may throw off your body’s internal clock. Additionally, artificial light from the TV, computer or smart phone can keep you awake and stimulate your appetite.

According to Authority Nutrition, some clever ways to combat nighttime cravings (1-5) include:

1)      Use a routine – structured eating and sleeping times will help spread food intake over the day so you’re less hungry at night
2)      De-stress - anxiety and stress are 2 of the most common reasons why people eat when they’re not hungry. Relaxation techniques like meditation, breathing exercises, hot baths, and stretching can help manage nighttime eating
3)      Eat regularly throughout the day – eating at planned intervals throughout the day keep blood sugar stable and can prevent feelings of ravenous hunger
4)      Include protein at every meal – protein is known to keep you feeling fuller, longer and can reduce snacking and nighttime eating
5)      Distract yourself – if you’re eating out of boredom, planning healthy evening activities or finding a new hobby can prevent mindless late night eating.
6)      Drink a bottle of Qurb PR – to fight nighttime cravings and to relax the mind and body


In addition to these lifestyle changes, adding Qurb™ Shot PM to your nightly routine is a great way to banish cravings. Each bottle of Qurb PM contains 10g of Fibersol 2 which has been shown to reduce hunger and increase the levels of two key appetite regulating hormones*. Qurb also contains 400mg of Svetol, Premium Green Coffee Bean Extract. Svetol contains at least 50% chlorogenic acids, which when taken consistently, are known for their Lipolytic (slimming effect) properties* Qurb PM also contains 100mg of Theanine which studies have shown can help you relax.* Qurb PM is sweetened naturally with Stevia and does not contain any artificial colors or flavors.

Qurb™ Shot and Qurb™ Shot PM are created with scientifically-tested ingredients to help battle stubborn cravings with a fast-acting delivery system that helps burns fat and helps people feel fuller longer. In one study, participants who were given 10g of Fibersol2 reported feeling less hungry and showed increased levels of two key appetite regulating hormones after four hours. Soluble dietary fiber decreased hunger and increased satiety hormones when ingested with a meal.
