Tis The Season of Sick Days: Safe Options

Earache Oral Liquid

All the germs, or children if you will, are likely back in the classroom coughing and hacking on each other. If not, they soon will be as we celebrate the Labor Day holiday this weekend in the United States. Our children have been swapping germs for a solid two weeks now and we have already had a short bout of temperatures, runny noses and coughs.

Regardless of being new to the school scene or a well organized, lunch making, clothing pressing, breakfast ready before they open their eyes machine (or not...we scramble but to each his own), you are aware of the sniffles turning into ear aches. Any caregiver knows earaches translates to pain, sleepless nights and sometimes a desperate hopeless feeling with regard to finding comfort for your child.

I am not a fan of antibiotics (no judging) and I am not a fan of having to sit on my child in order to get drops into their ears. Enter the relief of Kids Relief Earache Oral Liquid. No more struggles! A good tasting grape flavor with a convenient dropper and the dosing is accurate, effective and quick!

This product also comes in a great tasting grape flavor, making it easy for your child to take, and it is dye and sugar free!

Small But Mighty

Casters: Small but Mighty

It's the little things in life that can do so much for us, yet so many people don't stop to think about the valuable service they provide. One such example of little things providing a big service is the caster. Paired with a wheel, and often referred to as a caster wheel, the caster is a small invention comprised of plastic and/or metal that enables wheels to be attached to the bottom of furniture, appliances, and heavy machinery - and additionally, also allows for the wheels to roll back and forth, and sometimes pivot and swivel.

If you have ever helped a family member move a refrigerator to do some much-needed cleaning, or if you have rolled across an office space in a desk chair, then you are already familiar with casters, even if you didn't know that's what they were called. While furniture and appliances may not decrease in weight simply because of the addition of casters, the presence of the wheels makes it easier for those items to be moved. Ask any employee of a moving company or warehouse about casters, and they'll surely tell you how much they appreciate their existence.

In a medical environment, you'll find that casters are both in high demand and high use. From the nurses who rely on mobile laptop carts to the lab technicians who push around heavy x-ray and CT scanning equipment to the assistant nurses who move patients in their beds, medical casters are certainly found all over hospitals, doctors' offices, and other medical buildings.

Casters can also be found in many homes, and on more than refrigerators: sofas, standalone dishwashers, portable air conditioners, desks, office chairs, and those colored plastic stackable drawer units all come equipped with casters.

The nice thing about casters and caster wheels is that they are inexpensive; durable; and if one should break, replaceable. You can find casters of all sizes and weight limits at just about any hardware store, and manufacturers of specialized equipment will often sell replacement casters. If you should need a replacement caster, attempt to contact the manufacturer first and foremost, because if they have one, it's a guaranteed fit.

Dietary Pills For Adults and Children
It is a known fact that fast food is unhealthy to people of all ages. Eating fried food and snacks frequently doesn't provide an appropriate dosage of vital minerals and vitamins that the human body naturally craves. Even when eating a relatively normal and healthy diet, it may not be possible to attain all of the essential nutrients. Sometimes, there is nothing wrong with taking some dietary supplements in order to absorb a maximum amount of key nutrients. People of different ages actually have different requirements for all of the important vitamins and minerals.

Multivitamin supplements are available in designs that are suitable for children and adults. For example, kids' pills may be shaped like animals and have colorful textures. By contrast, adult multivitamins might contain high doses of specific nutrients that are needed for people over the age of 50. Some vitamin supplements are also formulated with certain minerals. The combination of these two classes of nutrients leads to improved health and vitality.

Vitamin C is actually found in low concentrations in supplements. This nutrient is quite abundant is common drinks and snacks as well as fruit and vegetables. However, fat soluble vitamins like E and K are very hard to consume in appropriate dosages. Similarly, Vitamin D is found in a relatively limited food menu. Additionally, this vitamin requires exposure to sunshine for full activation and functioning.

There are literally dozens of minerals that the human body needs on a daily basis. For the most part, some of these nutrients are only found in trace amounts within the bloodstream and certain organs. However, there are several important minerals that must be consumed in large quantities. For instance, calcium and phosphorus make up the composition of bones in humans. Similarly, magnesium and sodium play vital roles in several bodily functions including control of the nervous system. A product like Metagenics Supplements and other dietary pills are examples of formulas that are loaded with vitamins and minerals.

Another class of nutrients is known as phytochemicals. This category refers to a variety of compounds that are found in super foods such as specific fruit, vegetables and plants. For example, herbal extracts contain a variety of potent chemicals that can relief stress and induce pain relieving effects. Similarly, natural herbs also help people relax and sleep. Traditional oriental supplements include a variety of plant based products that have been used for generations.
