That's right, all things Medical, that I either already know about, or think might be useful to you that I can find out about! Sometimes you'll come across a Home remedy that is definitely worth a shot, and sometimes you'll find out about some new Meds that are really effective, and you want to pass that along. I think I'll try to create some sort of Forum, here, for my lovely Readers to use to share your ideas and thoughts... give me a minute to figure that one out! haha! In the meantime, you can do the relatively 'old-fashioned' thing and email me with your info or story, and I'll pop it on the site. I'll just use your Initials, if you don't want your First Name used.
Ailsa's Scottish Diet - This is the Special Weight Loss Diet that I developed for myself, and now tons (is that the right choice of word?? hahaha!) of my Beautiful Readers are on it, including me, since it's just generally healthy to eat it after you've lost the weight ... It's delicious, easy-to-make, and is a breeze to lose weight with. You'll love it!
Fitness - You know how I feel about Fitness... my Big Plan when I was in my 30's was to look great at 40, and now that I'm 44, my Giant Plan is to look great at 50... see where I'm goin' with this? haha! I just always want to look as good as I possibly can, and hopefully without any surgery... (see how I couched that with a 'hopefully', just in case I ever succomb to the notion?! hahaha!) Complete Body Workout At Home
Get Rid of Annoying Cellulite - I hate Cellutlite, on account o' how incredibly annoying it is, just sittin' around, all jiggly 'n all! Who needs it, I say?? One of my old 'Gym Buddies' showed me this exercise (yes, it's an exercise, not a fancy cream...) that will either prevent cellulite, if that's where you are (and then I'm guessing you're an Early Reader, Age 3...! hahaha!), or have an actual adult female body, there it is, and now you want to get rid of the cellulite. This exercise is proven and very effective, so give it a try. I think you're gonna like it, and if you have a male anywhere around you, I know fer sure that they're gonna like this exercise, too! haha!
Weight Loss - This is my favorite Apple Crumble Diet, which I love. I always keep a jar of Applesauce and a bag of the Apple Crumble Mix, which I make in big batches, in my fridge at home and my fridge at work, so I can have a quick snack or meal, and I know I'm doing something really healthy and tasty for my body.
<40% off New Chapter Products at House of Nutrition >- If you like taking supplements, or you've heard of a remedy for whatever ails 'ye (now I'm all Scottish, again! haha!), you want to shop around to get the best prices and selections, to make that a whole lot better for yourself.
Great Skin in Less than a Week - Little techniques that will help in the quest for great skin. I'll add in new products as I discover them!
Gym Tips - I love going to the Gym, and I would encourage everyone to start hittin' da gym, too, especially women. One of my pet peeves (because it's soo not fair to da womens!) is seeing women at the gym who work like crazy (sometimes not like crazy, but they are at the gym, and they are here with great intentions to lose some weight and change their bodies...), and they've been handed a load of crap about how to actually tone and shape your body. The Tread Mill is great if you enjoy it, and God Knows it's great for your heart, but if you really want to see some serious changes to the shape of your body, weightlifting is the key. It's not a big, masculine activity... it can be very gentle, and very pleasant. The goal is to build your muscles so they are nice and lean and strong, then in essence, your muscles can do all the annoying work of burning off calories. Fer real! You don't have to be nearly so careful about what you eat when your muscles are busy burning off your fat for you. I say, "Put those muscles to work for you... no more just lazin' around, doin' nuthin', right??"
Wristbands (they're one of the best Fundraisers around!) - There are a lot of Wristbands that provide support for different Medical and Personal Causes
The Easiest Way to Stop Smoking - I've read this book, and it was incredibly informative. I'm a non-smoker, but it gave me some seriously good insight into why someone begins smoking, and why it is soo hard to stop. Great ideas, and this Method has helped thousands and thousands of people around the globe, it's so effective.
Diabetes - My concerns about Diabetes are real, since I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes when I was pregnant with Aidan, which put me in a higher risk bracket for developing Diabetes Type II well after the arrival of said baby... and I dealt with it in my marriage, too, so this is an issue close to my heart, and if there's a spark of information or empathy you happen to find on my Diabetes page, then that's a Good Thing, right, Martha?? haha! Diabetes -<Free Diabetic Supplies>
Breast Cancer Awareness, Research & Stamps - Breast Cancer Awareness is critical for both women and men, since everyone is either directly or indirectly affected by Breast Cancer.
<Think Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness >
Personal Breathalizer - I think the Personal Breathalizer is a great invention, and should be given to every teen, young adult, and any regular Adult who might ever have a few drinks too many, and they need to test their alcohol level. Hey, if this is what it takes to prevent someone from getting behind the wheel to Drink and Drive, then it's worth every penny. And speaking of 'every penny', you get a Discount when you tell them I sent you to go get a Personal Breathalizer... Enter Code AILSA when you are ordering your own, or one for a loved one. Personal Breathalizer
Insurance <Compare Insurance Quotes and Save!> Medical Insurance is a big deal in the States, and everywhere else,now. Make sure you're fully covered so you don't have to worry about anything, since the stress of worrying will make you sick! haha!
Drugstore - All sorts of things you may need, and perhaps a few things you just want! haha!
Hilarious Messages from Comedian Jim Gaffigan (Because Laughter is the Best Medicine!)
Ailsa's Favorite Books - My Favorite Books are good to look at, because it was The Four Agreements that really helped me shed those extra pounds, because after reading this beautiful little book, you'll feel differently about how you treat your body. No kidding. And how you treat your whole life, for that matter. Life-changing, to be sure!
Straighten Out Bowed Legs - Yep, it really does work, so if you know someone who wants to have straighter legs, no kidding, get them to try this exercise. t's important to work your way up to at least a 35 pound Free Weight, to see a significant difference, but it shouldn't take all that long to get there. If you are working with a child, and this is probably even more effective, if you can affect a change in the child's body while they are still growing, start with a 2 pound weight, and really help them with securing the weight between their feet. Never have a child lift anything too heavy for them... use your best common sense, and maybe go up to 20 or 25 pounds, depending on the age, height and weight of the child with Bowed Legs.
Sex Tip - Yesss, this might be considered 'Medical Intervention', in that you're gonna be all mad and fed up with your whole life if this part isn't going well, and we all know it! haha! It's not sleazy, or anything creepy -- just a practical tip to make things even better in the bedroom (or wherever... I'm not one to tell you where to go, or when!).
Depression and Suicide Awareness & Prevention - This is a critical issue, and it affects a tremendous amount of people and their Loved Ones, so if this applies to you, I hope you find it helpful.
Get Rid of Lice Safely & Quickly - Great Tips for Parents and Teachers... don't panic, it'll all be over with, soon enough!
Cold Sores (Get Rid of Them, too!)("Out, out, Damn Spot", comes to mind!) - Same thing... don't panic. Stay calm, relaxed, stressfree, take any meds a doctor might give you, and try this home remedy for Cold Sores.
Hair Treatments * Just because everyone wants to have great hair, right??
Home Remedy for Colds & Viruses
Lasik Eye Surgery (Mine!) - I had Lasik Surgery 4 years ago? Well, that was one of the very best things I've done in my whole life, so I would highly encourage you to do it, too, especially if you've had it with wearing (or buying!) glasses. I wrote about the whole process on my Lasik Eye Surgery page... who knew you'd find out about Lasik Eye Surgery on a Building website, huh? Yep, I got it all in here! <800,000+ Lasik Procedures Performed. Get Your Free Lasik Exam Today! >
