Sea Bands. Has anyone heard about or used these?

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

My husband and I are going on a trip for our anniversary---Hawaii!!!! Wheee!!!
Anyway, I have problems on airplanes and was doing some research and discovered these acupressure wrist bands that are supposed to help with motion sickness. Has anyone out there tried them and did they help? It's the landings and take offs that get to me. I've tried over the counter meds, but they make me really drowsy and I don't want to miss any time in Maui because I'm groggy! I've also tried ginger, but it's pretty ineffective, tasty, but doesn't help much. The Sea Bands were inexpensive, so I bought a pair, just curious about other folks experience with them. Thanks for any feedback!

  I used them when he owned a boat. The bands didn't work for me.
Regardless, enjoy your trip !!

God Bless.

    A lady I work with is preggers & she used them for morning sickness. She said they worked pretty well. I have not personally used them. You can also go to your Primary Care doctor & let him/her know that you have motion sickness are going on a trip. He/she can prescribe a little patch that you put behind your ear. Hubby & I saw soooooo many people wearing those on our last cruise.

I love that! On a more serious note, I did go to the dentist the other day for a regular check up and found out that I have a loose wisdom tooth that I may have to have removed. Because it's loose he told me that suggests bone loss in the jaw. I'm thinking that since there could be bone loss there, it could be all over my body. So I'm upping my calcium intake, lifting heavier weights and trying to help things out a bit.
But my question is, why did this tooth not bother me until I was told there was a problem?! Guess that's just the power of suggestion! So, I suggest we all deserve crowns --- on our heads that is! lol! emoticon Have a great week Sparkers!

    I have a crown....the kind the dentists give but hey, it's still a crown and it lasted way longer than it should have! I love the pic.:p I think we all get scared when a doctor or dentist or someone "important" says "It could be...." Just keep doing what you are doing! :)

A Birthday Trek

Thursday, May 08, 2014

This is Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon, Colorado. I wanted to load more photos, but it's taking forever on SparkPeople, so settled for just one. I had photos of the ice/snow fields we had to cross, the 18 to 24 inch boulders we had to climb and the steepness of the trail. Also had some shots of Spouting Rock just above Hanging Lake and Rifle Falls, a few miles from here, you can actually hike to the top and get BEHIND Rifle falls--honestly how cool is that?!

Anyway, this is what we did for my birthday. It was awesome and challenging. The trail up to the falls is pretty rugged and really steep. But oh my was it worth the trek! Since it's early spring and the run off has just started the falls were truly impressive. We had a beautiful, warm sunny day, perfect for a hike.
So, what do you like doing on your birthday?

Colorado is Drunk

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

This is tongue in cheek, but true all the same. Saturday was a beautiful day here, warm, sunny, no wind, and 65*. We were able to work outside all day and enjoyed every minute of it. Sunday was cold and blustery. It snowed, it rained, it blew and the temps. hovered around 35*. To go outside I needed my winter coat again! Colorado springtime is always an adventure!

So I'm just holding on because I know good things are coming both in the weather and with myself.

Is it spring where you live yet? If so, share some warm stories for this poor soul freezing here! lol!

  On again - off again here also. New snow on the mountains. We did get some very warm sunny days also. The weather seems confused. emoticon emoticon

    Texas is warm and wet, 40s in the night and 70s in the day. This is one of the two times of the year we can actually work outside with pleasure. Summer heat will hit you in the face each morning and makes you want to go inside, but you can't and so you brave the heat to work in the garden and sweat through several changes of clothing. This winter has been the coldest in several years and the heating bills reflect it. But I know you've had your share too. God bless.

    Come my way, beautiful sunny southern California. If it gets in the low 60's, we complain that it is cold. But we have to deal with earthquakes and fires. We all have some kind of burden to bear. emoticon Hang in there. emoticon
