Secret Revealed: Why Japanese Women Don’t Do Hot Flashes!

MADE WITH PATENTED INGREDIENTS: Aglymax® is made from non-GMO soybean germ that goes through a fermentation process to deliver the most gentle, effective & bio-available soy isoflavones on the market. Aglymax® has been proven in several studies to provide relief for all symptoms associated with menopause including: Hot flashes, anxiety, vaginal dryness, moodiness, irritability, night sweats, low sex drive, dry skin & fatigue.

DHEA BALANCER FOR WOMEN: DHEA has been called the “Mother Hormone”. It has the innate ability to convert into any hormone the body needs. Unfortunately, DHEA levels drop as a woman ages & gets particularly low during the menopausal years. Aglymax helps a woman create her own DHEA which then converts into hormones like estrogen & progesterone. Taking straight DHEA supplements can cause negative side effects, but creating your own DHEA puts your body in control.

SYNERGISTIC BLEND: Besides the patented Aglymax® fermented soy isoflavones, Effisoy® has maca powder. Maca is a South American root vegetable that has been shown to support a woman’s hormonal system, fight fatigue & provide night sweat/hot flash relief. DIM (diindolylmethane) from broccoli & other cruciferous vegetables is another ingredient in Effisoy® proven to help with estrogen issues & overall supports women’s health. Get YOURS on Amazon

3 Things To Expect Before Starting HCG Diet Program

The HCG diet plan can be incredibly beneficial in helping you cut down excess weight from your body. However, before you start the program, you should be fully aware of what to expect during the diet period. Otherwise, you might come across some unexpected issues that can discourage you and make you drop out from the diet plan midway. And this can be unfortunate since you would have easily lost weight if you have stuck with the program. Below, we look at a few things that you should expect before starting the HCG diet.

Hunger Pangs

Be ready to face some very intense hunger pangs. Since you will mostly be habituated with consuming about 2000 to 3000 calories per day, shifting onto a 500 calorie diet can indeed be grueling. In fact, you will experience extreme hunger at least for the first few days. However, you don’t have to worry about them since you can easily overcome such issues through some smart meal planning. Even though you are limited to 500 calories, you can still each sufficient food to make your stomach feel full. A good example would be a salad comprising of greens like spinach, bok choy etc. You can literally eat a few cups of the salad while only consuming less than 100 calories in total. Be sure to look for specialized HCG diet recipes on the internet. Go through them, and you will surely find a few recipes that are low in calories and satisfies your hunger.

Hormonal Changes

HCG is essentially a hormone. And since you will be injecting them into your body, it is natural that you should expect some hormonal changes. If you are a woman, then knowing how HCG diet effects hormones is necessary since it has a direct effect on your menstrual cycle. It is recommended that you stay away from using the HCG injections during the menstrual cycle since the high progesterone levels will likely block the HCG from correctly burning up the excess fat. Once you are past the menstrual cycle, you can restart with the injections. And when it comes to men, HCG injections can have a positive effect. In fact, if you are a guy taking HCG hormones, then you will likely see an increase in testosterone production.

Desire To Quit

Watch out for a very deep desire to quit the program. Such thoughts are likely to be more prevalent in the first week of the diet period. This mostly has to do with the hunger you feel. However, make sure that you steel your mind to overcome such feelings. A good way to do this will be to switch the thoughts about quitting with positive thoughts. For example, every time you have the desire to quit the diet plan, imagine yourself having a fit body. Think of the positive ways in which your friends and co-workers will react when they see a new you. Such thoughts alone are sufficient to help you avoid giving up on the program.

The Season of Giving Is upon Us! FRESH Ideas to Give Back!

Whether it is donating goods or donating time, these family-friendly ideas courtesy of Go Organically Fruit Snacks are just some of many ways you & your family can help give back to those in need this season.

Thanksgiving will be here TOMORROW! Give back as a family! For many people, the season of gratitude is a great reminder to give back to those in need—whether it be by donating to a food drive, volunteering at a soup kitchen or giving money to a favorite charity. For parents like us, Thanksgiving season offers the perfect opportunity to teach kids about the importance of giving back to one’s community. After all, kindness counts!

Donating Goods

Make donating goods a family affair! Here’s how to get the whole crew involved:

  • Food Drives: Have kids go through cupboards with you to identify canned goods & boxed items that your family can donate to your local food drive. Ask older kids to check expiration dates to ensure freshness, & give younger kids the job of sorting or placing items in boxes. Or take a trip to the grocery store together & let kids help pick out items to buy & donate. By loading items onto the grocery belt & helping to bag & deliver goods, they’ll feel like an important part of the process.
  • Clothing Donations: Donating clothing is a win-win. You get to eliminate clutter & help those in need at the same time. Plus, you’re keeping items out of landfills by giving them a second life! Have kids play “fit model” by trying on clothing & seeing what no longer fits. They can also help sort, fold & bag clothing, &/or accompany you to the drop-off site.
  • Toy Drives: Many organizations, such as Toys for Tots, collect new, unwrapped toys for children in need during the holiday season. To get your kids involved, take them to the toy store & have them pick out a gift that they think a little boy or girl their age might like. They’ll love getting to weigh in with a kid’s perspective!

Donating Time

There’s no better way for parents& kids to bond than to do some good together. Here are some of our favorite ideas for pitching in as a family:

  • Visit VolunteerMatch to locate volunteer opportunities in your area. You can filter your search by “kids” to find age-appropriate activities that all family members can participate in—from park cleanups to animal rescue efforts & more.
  • Check with your school, place of worship or community groups to see if they need any assistance with charitable programs. Is the PTA collecting toiletries for a local women’s shelter? Volunteer your family to design, print & distribute flyers to get the word out. Is your child’s scout troop visiting a nursing home for holiday caroling? Dress your spouse &  kids in cute matching sweaters & attend as a family to belt out holiday tunes.
  • Don’t wait for a formally organized effort to spread kindness or lend a hand. Pay a family visit to an elderly neighbor who may be lonely, or buy a bunch of craft supplies & sit down together to make holiday cards for the troops. Welcome the new family in town by shopping for & assembling a basket of goodies. Bonus points if you include Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks.

Happy helping from all of us at Go Organically! Made with real fruit, our gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free kids snacks are a great choice for your on-the-go life. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for more kid-friendly ideas!

Great Minds – Storybooks for Kids on Success & Achievement: a Series of Books for Ages 5 & up, That Teach Fundamental Social, Financial, Personal, & Life Skills Necessary for Adulthood

To ensure our children learn the necessary skills to have a successful future in their workplace, personal lives, & anything else they set their mind to, INSYL has developed a comprehensive set of children’s books that explain vital concepts in ways young minds can understand & absorb! These include:

  • Focus: Dedicating enough mental resources to a task, & giving it the necessary attention.
  • Motivation: Harnessing the energy & drive needed to see things through to the end.
  • Confidence: Recognizing their worth & ability, & using that to put forth a poised image.
  • Goal Setting: Assessing realistic & desirable objectives to work towards.
  • Time Management: Using a limited amount of time wisely & with maximum results.  

Crafted with two specific age groups in mind (5+ & 7+), the INSYL series is divided into three units, each dealing with a specific focus.

1. Financial Education
Give your child an elevated advantage to build a secure, prudent, frugal, & wealthy future.

2. Positive Psychology
Give your child a positive outlook, confidence, motivation, leadership, & healthy perspectives on life.

3. Artistic Consciousness
Propel their subconscious thinking, inspire imagination, & cultivate creativity.

Only 17% of teens in the US have any idea how to manage their money, & more than half lack basic workplace & life skills. Activities as useful as making a study timetable or having the confidence to give a presentation in class are left undeveloped in lieu of social media, video games, & internet hours, & with one in three persons currently having zero dollars saved for retirement, it’s clear this isn’t a problem that corrects itself with age.

The statistics proved that 3 out of 4 teens turn for financial advice to their parents.

The fact is that us parents, we’re tasked with preparing our kids for their future, giving them the lessons & support they need to eventually stand on their own when we can no watch over them. When your child is ready to begin their adult life in the next twelve to fifteen years, will you be able to confidently say that you’ve done all you can to help them face the challenge? Join Motherstucker & BACK this Kickstarter to get “Great Minds – Storybooks for Kids on Success & Achievement” April 2018!

Precision Probiotics!

The probiotics industry is the wave of the future. In the past 3 or 4 years, humans have discovered that your health, as well as diseases unexplainable by genetics alone, like obesity, lupus & diabetes, are all linked to the unique environment created by the microbes in your gut. The problem is that there are no good systems in place to help you get the probiotics you need. So you’re at your local supermarket’s probiotic section stocked with hundreds of different brands of pills & supplements & all you’re looking for is something that can improve your digestive health. Would you stay for long if you knew that 85 percent of the supplements that you’re looking at won’t survive your stomach & will never make it to your gut? Even if you did know which products survive, how would you know which ones to take? There are over 1,000 species of microbes in your gut & every human’s microbiome profile is unique. That’s why Sun Genomics started! At Sun Genomics, they examine your gut bacteria, determine precisely what your gut environment looks like & provide you with probiotics tailored to your unique profile. It’s precision probiotics. They test for gastric survival & harness the power of your microbiome so that you can flourish.

5 Recommendations to Keep Your Children Protected

  1. Never allow your children to keep a cell phone turned on under their pillow while they sleep.
  2. Teach your children the 2 inch rule (distance from their head) when talking on the cell phone. Use speaker and microphone.
  3. Train your children to carry the phone away from the body in a back pack, handbag, purse, gym bag, etc. and not against their body. Their phone still transmits signals even when not talking.
  4. Encourage safe texting versus talking with the phone unless the phone has a bio shielded phone case with protection on the front of the phone. See Cruzcases.com for description.
  5. Teach your children not to use the phone in a metallic enclosure area as in riding in a car, plane or train. Cell phones boost radio transmitting intensity to connect to tower which would also traveling into the brain.

I researched and designed a phone case using the correct materials that is not only beautiful, but protects your entire family from the cell phone radio signals directed towards the brain and body. For more information, please visit www.CruzCases.com Fb: CruzCases

You CAN Run a Business from Home!

“Fresh & Juicy News MOMS Use” at Motherstucker.com is 5 years STRONG next month! To celebrate this milestone, Motherstucker is sharing TOP TIPS for running a successful business from home.

I. Manage Your Time: Set a Schedule & Stay Organized

One of the freedoms of running a home business is having a flexible schedule. While beneficial, this flexibility can hinder the success of your home based business if you don’t properly manage your time. Set a work schedule that outlines your office hours. Organize your files — both in your computer & your paper files — so that everything is easy to find. Use color coding for file folders to make them easy to recognize. Printed labels, which you can create with your computer or a separate label-maker, help readability.  Also, make sure to schedule conference calls at appropriate times. Never schedule a client conference call when the UPS delivery driver is set to arrive!

II. Network!

Reach out to others in YOUR industry & related industries! Find a mentor! Become a mentor! Here are a just a couple of Motherstucker’s Favorites to connect with on social media!

  1. Martin J. Stallone – Executive Vice President of Land Development at Metropolitan Development Group Inc. –  Cornell University.

2.  Tim Savage – VP Social Content and Strategy, SocialToaster & Founder of 16 Agency – SocialToaster, Inc. West Chester University of Pennsylvania.

3.  Don’t forget to connect with ME! Motherstucker Christy Stucker – Brand Strategist, MotherStucker.com – University of Kentucky.

III. Stay Competitive!

To stay ahead of your competitors, keep informed of the changes in your market & your customers’ preferences, so you can adjust your business’s products &/or services accordingly. “Don’t try to shy away from the fact that you run your business at home,” says Maria Rapetskaya, cofounder of Undefined Creative, a home-based design & animation studio. “Give your potential clients the rundown of why it benefits them — like low overhead.”

A huge part of staying competitive is promoting a professional image! Attend trade shows, industry events, & conferences.  You may work from home, but how you conduct business should be as professional as any business office protocol dictates. This includes having well-designed & written promotional materials! Belonging to an industry trade group or local business organization & participating in activities that support nonprofit groups in your area, will enhance your public relations image. Your business’s image is a reflection of your ethics & the products/services you produce.

Get after it Otherstuckers! Good Luck!

Potty Training Boys: Wee Buddies

O.K. MOM – So your little man is ready to graduate to a bathroom stander from a bathroom sitter? Aiming is hard! Give him a target! Let’s be honest, we all know plenty of (adult) guys who need to practice their aiming skills, maybe even more than toddlers!

Motherstucker can help make this EASY! GET Wee Buddies! These color changing toilet targets encourage (FUN!) potty training & teach (little) boys to aim!

Check out “Tinkle the Turtle”, “Surge the Shark”, “Whiz the Walrus”, “Piddle the Penguin”, & let your little guy pick out his own at www.weebuddies.com! He will respond better & show more interest in the items he picked himself! 

 

PROTECT YOUR FAMILY AND CHILDREN FROM BACTERIA IN WATER

Bacterial water contamination is a global problem affecting hundreds of millions of people. In the US alone, 15 million households get their water from private wells, which are not covered by EPA regulations. These wells are susceptible to various environmental contaminants including seepage through landfills, failed septic tanks, underground storage tank infection, fertilizers and pesticides. The scary part? The problem extends beyond private systems to the public water supply. Further, MOST pools and hot tubs are contaminated beyond acceptable limits.

Water quality testing and monitoring is about to get a major upgrade thanks to a promising new company based out of Ontario, Canada. Bringing together the use of mobile, nanotechnology and predictive software, ExactBlue Inc. has just released a new device enabling users to screen their own water for unsafe levels of microbial contamination. This disruptive technology offers a quick and easy solution to water testing that is able to detect 50 TIMES more bacteria and fungi than the traditional laboratory method. Further, this solution reduces testing time from WEEKS TO MINUTES. The Exact Blue team recently launched a Kickstarter campaign, inviting companies, non-profit organizations and individual consumers to learn more about the new device and its water testing capabilities.
