I love your product. I’ve now bought 3 as gifts. DockATot is an amazing sleep enhancer for babies and their parents. They should give them to all new parents after delivery.
DockATot® has been designed to offer a snug and soothing environment for babies. We like to think it’s the next best thing to the womb. Babies can rest, play and lounge. The DockATot® is lightweight and simple to travel with. DockATot® is the ideal spot to have tummy time with your little one. The rounded sides helps to prop up your awake baby when placed under his/her arms. Tummy time can help babies develop neck strength and motor skills. It is important to closely supervise your baby during tummy time. The DockATot® Grand can help a child get comfortable with a new toddler or big-kid bed. The sides give little ones a snug sense of security in their new, bigger beds.
Vitamin C-Don’t we get Enough in our Everyday Foods?
Have you read Linus Pauling’s recommendations for Vitamin C intake?
While the USDA recommends 40 to 75 mg per day (and smokers need 110), Dr. Pauling said this amount was incredibly low–the real amount most humans need is at least 1,000 milligrams per day. He himself took 12,000 mg per day!
Most animal species can make their own Vitamin C, but our bodies can’t do it. And Vitamin C is water soluble, which means that we can’t store it.
If we take in too much (really hard to do!) then our bodies get rid of the excess through the urine.
So you’d have to eat over 12 large oranges each day to get your 1,000 mg!
Or take supplements. But, do supplements really work? One study done at the University of Toronto concluded that while Vitamin C supplements may not be an effective cold treatment, that it did lower the severity of symptoms. The study was done with 250 mg doses daily, and no studies have been done with higher amounts of this vitamin.
So the answer is “No”, we don’t get enough vitamin C in our everyday foods. 12 oranges, really?? Supplements are still important. And if fewer symptoms and misery from a cold is all Vitamin C can offer–I’ll take it!
Can Echinacea Help Protect Against Cold and Flu?
The herb Echinacea comes to us from the North American Coneflower. The chemicals that boost the immune system are found in both the roots and the above-ground portion of the plant. In Germany, Echinacea is regulated by the government, and approved as a natural remedy for UTI’s (urinary tract infections) as well as colds (decreases your chances of getting a cold by 58%) and upper respiratory infections. Although I could find no information on the effect of Echinacea against the flu, the fact that it boosts the immune system means that your body has a better chance of fighting off any disease, including flu. As a side note, the Great Plains Indians used Echinacea as a pain reliever, including headaches, toothache and sore throats.
Wheatgrass: What Health Benefits?
If you’ve ever heard anyone talk about wheatgrass, then you know: they either love it or they hate it. Those who love wheatgrass talk about it’s cleansing effect on the body and blood, and the stimulation of the thyroid and metabolism. Those who hate it say that humans weren’t meant to digest grass like a cow with several stomachs, and they complain about the taste. Well, actually, everyone complains about the taste–at first. Others say that it really depends on how the grass is grown as to flavor and health benefits. Does wheatgrass have proven health benefits? Possibly. One interesting study I found was a 3-year clinical trial in India on terminal cancer patients. The authors of the study concluded that wheatgrass improved the hemoglobin so significantly that they considered it an excellent alternative to blood transfusion. Pretty impressive.
Colloidal Silver-The Natural Antibiotic.
Hundreds of years ago, silver was a common household item in the home. It was made into plates, and pitchers and silverware. Like iron from an iron skillet, very small portions of the substance found its way into foods and drinks, and being a natural antibiotic, people were that much healthier for having small trace amounts of silver in their bodies. In pioneer days, settlers used a silver dollar to keep milk fresher longer. The Roman empire stored their wines in silver urns for the same reason. Silver was once known as a powerful germ fighter, but became less popular as doctors and scientists discovered penicillin and other man made antibiotics. However, unlike modern day antibiotics, the human body does not develop a tolerance to silver. It is still as effective as ever against colds, flu and some have even said it helped arthritis! Colloidal Silver is making a comeback and it is spoken very highly of by doctors who treat infectious diseases.
