COVID-19 Pandemic Causes Panic Worldwide ( Momimhar posted on March 14th, 2020 )

As we all know, this COVID-19 disease which they said started in China has caused panic worldwide. It is a very serious matter which has already become a pandemic. This is a new virus spreading quickly and we do not have immunity to it yet. That is why our cooperation to prevent its spread is highly needed.

Who says I am not scared? Of course, I’m scared! I have family in the Philippines and my own here in America. I worry about everyone every day since this new virus emerged affecting thousands of people around the world as of now.

Here’s a friendly advice, okay? Do not panic. What we can do now is to take extra health precautions. In addition to washing our hands regularly, let us avoid crowded places for now. Stay home if sick and seek medical attention immediately. And, don’t be a hoarder. You know what I mean?

This, too, shall pass my friends. Let’s pray for fast healing and immediate solution to this COVID-19 pandemic.

Traveling With Baltic Amber ( Momimhar posted on April 4th, 2018 )

I always knew that I wanted a big family. Growing up I had one sibling. She was younger than me, by several years, and it often felt as if I was growing up an only child. I daydreamed about what it would be like to run around with someone my own age, to experience life’s milestones at the same time, and to have a forever friend from birth. So when I became older and got married, my husband and I established that we would start with three children and discuss any further children at a later date.

The first three were pretty easy. None of them experienced colic, bad teething phases, and generally got along well with each other. Their pregnancies were some of the best times of my life, and my husband would agree. After welcoming our third child into the world, we decided that we would have one more. After all, we had three boys and wanted to at least try for our girl.

Six months later we became pregnant with our fourth and last child, a girl. From the start, her pregnancy was rough. I had terrible morning sickness, my face broke out in the worst acne I had ever had (including my puberty years!), and I couldn’t stay awake. The bigger I got the more everything hurt. From my head down to my swollen feet, I was a hot mess. To top it all off, my anxiety had shot through the roof due to the impending cross country move that my husband’s job had thrown at us a few weeks after announcing our pregnancy.

I was doing research one night on homeopathic cures for my aches and pains. A fellow mother had suggested amber teething necklaces due to the anti-inflammatory properties. I had used them several times with my other children simply on the recommendation from other mother’s who’ve gone through teething, but had never actually looked into how they work. I knew they had worked on my first three, I just never knew why or how.

Baltic amber is found near the Baltic sea and is made from the sap that’s collected from it. The resin in the sap contains succinic acid, the main component responsible for amber’s healing properties. Succinic acid, as stated above, is an anti-inflammatory. Amber has many benefits, though, such as it’s natural immune boosters due to its antioxidant rich oils, and has even been said to help cure anxiety. Baltic amber has been used throughout history for centuries in countries surrounding the Baltic sea for this reason.

How does it work? Amber works best when worn because your body can heat the bead up, allowing for the succinic rich oils to seep through the surface and into your bloodstream. Once it’s absorbed by your body, you’ll start noticing it’s healing effects instantly.

The information I found sounded perfect! Not only could I wear the necklace to help cure my pregnancy related aches and pains, but it would also help cure the anxiety I felt surrounding my life changes.

Right before we delivered our last child, we made our first cross country move as a family of five. Things weren’t easy. We all needed time to adjust to our new surroundings, but things were about to change even more because our daughter was born one week to the day after we arrived.

As was her pregnancy, the infant phase didn’t provide much change. She was a force to be reckoned with from the start. She had her days and nights confused, she had trouble latching, and she just overall was not as laid back as our others. When the teething phase hit, I knew something had to give. I put a teething necklace on her ankle and prayed for the best. In two weeks time, I had noticed a complete 180 change in our daughter. She was happy and content, she slept through the night, and her gum inflammation was down. I knew it had to be because of the necklace.

Amber necklaces are not just for teething babies. If you’re experiencing pain in your joints or muscles, if you suffer from daily migraines or even anxiety, try out a Baltic amber necklace from http://balticwonder.com for yourself! It didn’t only soothe my baby, it soothed myself during one of the most hectic times of my life. Trust Baltic amber, trust Mother Nature.

Simple Yet Effective Home Remedies For Cough And Colds ( Momimhar posted on December 15th, 2017 )

I had a very busy week…’know why?  My darling daughter was sick for four days and I had to sub in a Kindergarten class today.

Sometimes, it is very depressing when our kids are sick.  We don’t get much sleep at night.  I myself keeps waking up checking my darling daughter’s temperature every couple of hours.  When she is coughing at night, I wake up also and try to soothe her coughing.  I feel restless.  I worry a lot.

Her congestion is not too bad this time, though.  I am relieved about that.  No severe nosebleeds either.  We are keeping ourselves as healthy as possible because of the flu season and I heard many cases of it this year.  Last winter was quite a challenge for us, health wise.

There are also absences at school due to sickness.  Teachers are getting the flu.  Some students go to school even though they are not feeling well.  They should rest at home for three days, at least, if they are coughing and running a fever.  I just feel bad hearing some kids coughing non-stop in the classroom.  🙁

Home remedies to soothe the cough and colds are not that difficult.  I always give my child freshly made lemonade or Calamansi juice daily.  At night, before going to bed, I rub Vicks Vapor Rub on her back.  I put a little amount of Petroleum Jelly in her nostrils and spray Saline Nasal Spray to keep her nose moisturized because she is prone to nosebleeds.  The linings in her nose are thin.  Our humidifier runs full blast overnight.  It helps keep the moisture in the air (humidity) in her bedroom.  My husband and I keep this routine every night diligently.  I think it is effective.
