Doctor Doctor, You’re Costing Me A Fortune!

Here’s a fun fact to start your day with. Medical bills are one of the most common reasons for families to go into debt. This shouldn’t be that surprising because some medical bills can cost anything up to millions of dollars. In fact, a recent legal case saw a woman suing for ten million in damages just to pay for medical costs. That’s crazy, and this is why it’s important to cut down healthcare costs as much as possible. But how can you do this?

The Day that Changed My Life

Screen Shot 2016-10-18 at 8.33.23 PM

August 4, 2016 ~  It started out like any other summer day.  I woke up, grabbed a cup of coffee and took the dogs for a walk!!

Once I got home I just wasn’t feeling well.  I remember Tim calling from work and telling him that my upper back area hurt, and that it “felt like  I had a cold in my shoulder.  Maybe I slept with the fan hitting it all night?”  He didn’t really agree with me, but after 27 years of marriage he’s used to me saying weird things!!  As the day went on I just didn’t feel right.  I couldn’t shake the feeling. I debated going to see the chiropractor, and around 3:00 figured I’d go get adjusted to see if that would help my shoulder, or me, feel better.  Even though it was 90 plus degrees, I put on a jacket convincing myself it would comfort me and maybe make me feel a bit better.

Pulmonary arterial hypertension or PAH is a severe, progressive disease. When a person has this condition, he is experiencing increased pressure in arteries that are connecting lungs and heart. This condition is often diagnosed rather late because of its non-specific symptoms such as fatigue, chest pain, dizziness, syncope, palpitations. Before a doctor can establish that a person has pulmonary arterial hypertension, it is necessary to perform various tests so that diagnosis can be confirmed. During treatment, it is necessary to approach the problem based on specific situation so that a doctor can postpone progress of the disease, reduce its symptoms and severity. Doctor who is treating the patient needs to approach the disease with the necessary seriousness. Each situation is different and proper medication, treatment and tests should be administered depending on the state of patient. One of the good ways to counter the issue is you buy Sildenafil online. [Read more…]

5-Hydroxytryptophan is an all natural way to help combat stress!


Life can be so stressful at times!!  There’s ALWAYS something that needs done or someone that needs to go somewhere.  Are stress, anxiety or depression getting you down? Unfortunately it’s everywhere, and often hard to avoid.  Different people deal with stress differently.  Some turn to friends or family for comfort while others drown their sorrows in food or drink.  Although you may not be able to avoid stress, what you can do is change how you deal with it and the toll it takes on your mind and your body.  Sometimes it can’t be avoided.  Between my dog’s recent diagnosis of diabetes and me being rear ended and my van being totaled Memorial Day weekend I have been totally stressed the past month!

Addiction is a horrible disease.  It destroys many lives.  Living at the shore I see it often.  Club drugs and binge drinking are very popular around here with the younger crowd, and I see it every time we go out. They just don’t know when to stop!   It’s very scary, and what most young adults do not realize is that this in turn can lead to addiction which is a horrible and debilitating disease.  When it comes to addiction, not only does the addict suffer, but their entire family suffers.

How You can Lose Some Pounds on Nutrisystem



There is no miracle cure or magic pill to lose weight.  It does take time and commitment to reach your goals, but it is not an impossible task.  There are so many plans and programs available to help you along the way, and one of the most popular is the Nutrisystem program that is geared at healthy weight loss.


Who Is Nutrisystem For?


The standard food program is safe and effective for people of all ages towards a weight loss goal.  The plan can be customized for special needs and there are various options for those with type II diabetes, the seniors in life, teens between ages 14 and 17 as well as men and vegetarians.  Nutrisystem is geared towards success and offering plans to satisfy all health and diet needs.


Are there ways to Save on Nutrisystem?



You can find many offers and discounts, not only on the Nutrisystem website but also at sites they are affiliated with like WeightLossTriumph. Some coupons that stand out begin with one where you can get a 30 percent coupon towards the program.  When you go to Nutrisystem to join your selected plan, enter the code 30OFFWEIGHTLOSS for an instant discount. also has a $50 coupon you can apply to the plan and get continual 20 percent discounts thereafter by choosing auto delivery.  Just be cautious when using and check expiration dates on their offers.


I have also heard from the forum board that offers gift cards to Nutrisystem at a discounted price.  The regular cost is $70 for a $100 gift card and you can get even more savings when the card goes on sale for $50, which is a super half price discount; so little to pay for your super new, healthy body.


How Does Nutrisystem Work?


The premise of the Nutrisystem program is a low glycemic index to keep your blood sugar levels stabilized in order to alleviate or reduce food cravings.  You have a choice of more than 150 entrees and snacks or desserts on the Nutrisystem plan, providing you a balance of fat, protein and good carbohydrates. The foods are low in sodium, saturated and trans fats and provide whole grains. The nice thing is that you do not have to weigh or measure anything, cook or count calories.  The goal is to consume 55 percent carb, 25 percent protein and 20 percent fat daily. As it works out, women will intake about 1200 calories daily while men are allowed up to 1500 calories.


Many of the convenient, tasty foods can either be placed in the microwave or come in a pouch that you stick in boiling water.  I am a big pizza lover and found that the Nutrisystem pizzas are great!  I like to just add some mushrooms (or you can choose other veggies) to the top of the pizza after slapping on the sauce, sprinkle on the cheese and place in the oven.  There are many great options and ways to vary the meals to meet your needs and taste on the program, and lose weight. A great tip is to engage in the member site forum where you will get many discount, recipe’ and meal ideas.


It is a combination of the meals and produce foods that makes for success on this program.  Nutrisystem suggest that you eat up to six small meals daily rather than 3 large meals.  You will lose more weight on a permanent basis.  Depending on your goals, it is typical that most people stay on Nutrisystem for up to 11 or 12 weeks, providing you guidance and support the entire way so that you realize your dreams of a new body and healthy life.
