Colds, Running Nose, Flu: What Can You Do

Posted by peggysue on September 29, 2014 in Admirable, Courage, Food, Healthy Choices, Passion and Joy, Selfless People with Comments closed |

It seems like germs are all around us. People are coughing from allergies, the flu, and colds. Some folks have sinus infections, get bronchitis, and even pneumonia. Well, drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated. Coffee can be dehydrating.  I can say this from experience having gone to ER for dehydration.Force yourself to drink plenty of water every day.

Some folks, in fact many folks get flu shots from their medical provider or pharmacy. I know I personally I have one every year and it often protects me from severe flu. It is hard when you have asthma and other health issues to get the flu. I have had walking pneumonia, so I keep my pneumonia shots up to date as well.

Washing your hands all the time is important. They say you should spend at least twenty seconds scrubbing the germs off. If you can’t use soap, then at least use hand sanitizer that is 60% alcohol.

Have you cleaned the dust out of your house? Are the vents in your house clean? Do you have your furnace cleaned before each heating season? I know viruses don’t like moisture. Cold air moisturizers help. You should get a gauge to check your household humidity.  Cold air humidifiers need to be cleaned each season. Use vinegar at the minimum. Dry air is not healthy for a person. Have you even noticed that dogs cough when it is too dry? If you have a cough keep a few throat lozenges on hand or zinc lozenges.

If you need antihistamines, these help prevent from swelling and congestion of the nasal passages. They don’t prevent colds though.

Probiotics help with the good bacteria in your stomach. They may reduce but not necessarily eliminate immunity problems.

Toasty’s, All Natural, Local, Organic and Affordable

Posted by peggysue on September 25, 2014 in Admirable, Courage, Food, Healthy Choices, Hope, Passion and Joy, Selfless People, Uncategorized with Comments closed |

Today as we driving by Toasty’s, my husband said,” Let’s stop.” Toasty’s is a new restaurant just starting off and trying to make it to the home run. I want to call it Mr. Toasty’s, and I am unsure why.

This neighborhood hot spot is located at: 1032 East 9th Street. Their phone number is 218-724-3336.

I had a delicious Gouda Apple Sandwich, apples and Gouda on toasted whole wheat bread from Positively 3rd Street Bakery. I loved their Basil Tomato Soup as well. They are going to move toward specials down the road.

They have vegan foods, gluten free bread, and I think they can meet a variety of needs for an affordable price. For example the sandwiches run from $4.50 to $9.50. Most are in the $5.00-$6.00 price range.

What are the titles of the sandwiches? They are:  Guilty Pleasure, Hillside Hawk, Pick Swiss, Oregaddarno, Goud Apple, Chip and Chedd, Tom Turkey, Turkey Bacon, The Kid in Os, The King, Porky Pig, Bruschetta, Break Fast, Roasted Mushroom, Ah Love, Philly Dilly, Arriba Arriba, Steak-fantastic, Hot Digity Dog, Steak Paradise, Hawaiian, Double Decker. I know I can’t wait to try another one.

They have Annie’s Fresh Garden Salad.

There are sides like fruit, carrots, yogurt and granola, cool cups, torilla chips, potato chips.

Desserts include Root Beer float, dream-sicles, grilled cream apple pie, Mixmi’s, and Johnny Pops.

Beverages include all natural sparkling Envy juice, Blue Sky Sodas, Hansen’s Organic Juice Box, Honest Organic Tea, Organic Chocolate, Fair Trade and Local Coffee Features.

They have craft type beers as well.

Hours they are open-11:00-7pm

MOCA, Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance Makes A Difference

Posted by peggysue on September 19, 2014 in Admirable, Courage, Food, Healthy Choices, Hope, Passion and Joy, Selfless People with Comments closed |

 

 

The Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (www.mnovarian.org) makes a difference in in our state.

This organization offers support, information and resources to help those in their healing journey. Unfortunately they do not provide financial help to patients. Nor do any others.

They meet the Charities Review Council Standards (smartgivers.org). They are listed as a Community Health Charity. I have talked to the program manager about their mission, where their money goes, and their awareness materials. I also have picked up their materials through the years. The belong to The Valued Guide Star Exchange. It is always best to check with Guide Star and Charity Navigator before donating money to non-profits. How much goes to research, salaries, operating? Also you can check Clinical Trials.gov to find out if they are getting federal monies for trials.

They have given  a lot of money to research that is documented. That is their main mission besides education medical providers.

Read this statement: ” SUPERYOU-MN.ORG–” You’ve Got the Power-The power to protect your family from cancer with genetic counseling. For those with a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, genetic counseling give you the super power to protect you and your family from cancer.

This organization funds ovarian cancer research and has awarded nearly $5 million to more than 60 research projects.
