Thermal-Aid 100% Natural Heating and Cooling Pack Review

I have horrible posture due in a large part by the amount of time I spend hunched over my computer blogging, researching, and yes even shopping. I have terrible neck and back pain so when offered the opportunity to review the Thermal-Aid 100% Natural Heating and Cooling Pack I was anxious to experience some relief.

Heating and cooling packs by Thermal-Aid were developed by our Bio-Engineers and Doctors that worked closely with milling experts using a unique patented process, which removes the embryo/germ tip cap and outer coat from each kernel of corn. This leaves the purest and cleanest portion of the corn product. This process hardens the specialized de-germinated corn, allowing it to hold temperatures evenly for long periods of time. It also eliminates mold, fungi and foul odors often associated with natural heating/cooling products.

The above picture notes some of the many uses for the Thermal-Aid Treatment Packs. I have been using mine primarily for back pain and muscle soreness but the added use that they neglect to mention is sometimes when hubby’s on nights and the bed is cold I love to just have my warm Thermal-Aid pack in bed with me. They also make adorable Thermal-Aid Bears which I think would be perfect for this use!


I really love the large size that can over my whole mid to lower back area. The pack retains it’s temperature for hours and I love how easy it is to just throw in the microwave for a few minutes and it’s ready to go.

The Best and Worst Cities for Your Skin. Is Your Location Affecting Your Health?

I thought I would share this interesting infographic from Daily Glow showing the Best and Worst Cities for the Health of Your Skin.
There is also a slideshow available to give you more details about the Best and Worst cities for you skin. 
I think it is interesting to see the difference in lifestyles. Remember that the lifestyle you choose to live is YOUR decision. Take care of yourself and your health. Wherever your city may rank on this list does not need to dictate your future health.

The Beauty Detox Solution. Care to join me?

The book I’m just finishing up reading is The Beauty Detox Solution by Kimberly Snyder. This book shouted out to me from the small book display at my local Shopper’s Drug Mart. What made it stand out was the word Detox. I’ve managed a very intensive 7 day detox at one time and I was eager to try again with more long term goals in mind. When I saw beauty and detox combined in one book title with the addition of some well known celebrity endorsements on the cover I quickly scooped it up. I have to say this book is EXCELLENT. It speaks to me as it revolves around health topics that I have strongly believed in for several years but haven’t had the motivation and dedication to follow through with lately. This book has been an incredible motivation to get me back on the right track. Kimberly has a way of getting her point across in a manner that leaves you nodding your head with enthusiast “ah ha” moments and anxious to hear more, always with data to back it up.
I followed a lot of the ideals behind this program when I modified my diet in an attempt to ease my son’s colic when I was breastfeeding him. Less that one year after his birth I was the thinnest I’ve been in a decade (yes even long before my two kids) and, more importantly, I felt fantastic. Unfortunately, for the most part, when I stopped breastfeeding him and returned to work I abandoned most of my new healthier habits and I’ve returned to the unhappy, unhealthy state I had been in the past. I won’t get into all the details of the program here but fire me off an email or start looking into Kimberly’s program if you’d like to hear more.
I know it’s time to get my butt in gear and start trying to live the lifestyle I want for myself, for my future and the future of my health and family. I struggle with the motivation to get started and stick with it so if anyone is interested in joining me in a quest for better health I would love the company! You don’t necessarily have to follow this program but I think it’s a great read if you’re interested ;-)
