Good Morning! Pammy Sue...this is for you. My friend Dawn over at Creative Cain Cabin is a big
believer in herbal remedies before using Western Medicine. I have a tendency to get bronchitis following a bad cold. It seems to get worse every year that I get older! I was willing to try Dawn's suggestion to see if I could ward it off. Dawn told me what to get, so Greg and I ran right out to GNC to purchase the exact thing she told me to get. They were closed, so we found them at Sprouts. I was able to find the brand she recommended as well. It is called NOW. Orange label, purple top!
While at my local health food store, I inquired about something Dawn told me to try for HOT FLASHES!! It is called Pro Yam. They did not have this exact one, but they had several Yam creams. This one by Kokoro, called Balance Cream. It was the one that the lady at Sprouts suggested and said she has rave reviews from women!! I did talk to my favorite Pharmacist about using this, my son in law, Jake. He said he would do some research on it for me. I will talk to my Dr. when I go. But I am using it. It does contain natural progesterone. Which in essence, is hormone replacement therapy. I took Premarin for a year after having my hysterectomy, and then stopped after all of the bad press regarding it's relationship to cancer. But my hot flashes are so miserable, I am willing to try this. Guess what? Not a single flash since I began using the cream!
WIND...we have WIND today. Many of you will be getting snow drifts soon. We, here in Southern California, are getting leaves drifts.
But I found this.
Remember this little bag that I got a while back as a freebie at a local mall? I have shown it before. But I will show you again what I did. I just made ruffles and tacked them to the front of the canvas bag to hide the printed logo.
My Bloomies are in full production. For now, a few, and later I will show all of my Christmas colors.
Guess what this soft fuzzy fleece is going to be?
If you live in my area....be careful out there driving today. It is wicked windy!!
