If you have been treated for GERD or acid reflux greater than 3 months with Tums, Prilosec, Zantac, or protonix then you need to be scoped EGD and referred to GI specialist especially if you are a smoker - you should not be taken these meds on a regular basis!! H. Pylori is a bacterial infection of the lining of the stomach and can be easier treated with a combo of antibiotics - you can stool test or breath test for h.pylori but it’s more accurate by scope #themoreyouknow#gerd#hpylori#nursepractitioner#healthcoach#smokers
Blood sugar balance is not just a topic for diabetics and pre-diabetics! I didn’t think I had a problem with blood sugar balance but boy was I wrong. Have you ever had the afternoon crash, shakiness, extreme hunger, cravings, irritability, difficulty staying asleep, sick more often, or salt cravings? They are all symptoms of blood sugar being imbalanced.
Plexus Slim was co-developed by two scientists whose desire was to create a plant-based consumable product for diabetics in hopes of reducing their need for diabetic medication/insulin. They found that the in trials diabetics were reporting back that they had better daytime energy, sleeping better at night, blood sugars such that they were no longer were needing their medication or less of it, reduced appetite, lost their desire for sugar, & they no longer needed their cholesterol or blood pressure medication AND as a side effect – they were losing weight. The best part- it works this way for everyone!!
Plexus works by first filtering sugar through the liver & breaking it down before it gets to the pancreas. When the pancreas isn’t overworked, the body releases bad fat it has been holding on to. Most diets/exercise regimens “force” fat off the body. But when the exercise or the diet ceases, the weight comes back. When the body releases bad fat naturally in an unforced fashion, it does not come back. There is no dieting with Plexus. Simply put, the product works by changing what you desire in ways of suppressing the appetite and taking away your desire for sugar/sweets/junk. It will balance out what is wrong in the body and make it right. Once the body is in balance, it will release the bad fat it has been holding on to, if it is there to rid!

Dressember day 10: New week, same dress! I’m obsessed with this @elegantees dress ❤️❤️ In 1850, an average slave in the American South cost what would be the equivalent of $40,000 today. One of the key characteristics of modern slavery is the idea that a human being is disposable. This idea of instant replaceability removes any incentive traffickers might have to treat them with care. Every day this month I’m wearing a dress as part of @dressember because I want every individual in bondage to know that someone cares about them and that they are irreplaceable. If you’d like to show your support, you can donate to my campaign at the link in my bio. #dressember#itsbiggerthanadress#endslavery#themoreyouknow
DRESSEMBER DAY TEN
Imagine this: In 1850, an average slave in the American South cost what would be the equivalent of $40,000 today. Today, the average cost of a slave is $90, less than ever before in human history. One of the key characteristics of modern slavery is the idea that a human being is disposable. This idea of instant replaceability removes any incentive traffickers might have to treat them with care. Every day this month I’m wearing a dress as part of @dressember because I want every individual in bondage to know that someone cares about them and that they are irreplaceable.

Yesterday was Matt and my 1/2 anniversary. We LOVE being married! Sadly, that's just not the case for an estimated 15+ million people who are sold into a forced marriage. So we wear our dress and tie not to dress up for a fancy date out, but as a symbol of hope that there will be freedom for slaves around the world. It happens here. Don't be blinded to it. Choose freedom!
According to the UN, forced marriage is “an institution or practice where individuals don’t have the option to refuse or are promised and married to another by their parents, guardians, relatives or other people and groups”. Today we are wearing a dress and tie because we believe that no one should be forced to marry without consent.

TEAL demonstration today at work for the #lbfd recruits. There are large containers of this at our facility and it is used in the #polypropylene unit. The small black container on the ground is filled with water and the reaction you’re seeing is the TEAL being exposed to the water. It was awesome in person! Triethylaluminium ignites on contact with air and will ignite and/or decompose on contact with water, and with any other oxidizer—it is one of the few substances sufficiently pyrophoric to ignite on contact with cryogenic liquid oxygen. #themoreyouknow 🌈
STEP BACK IN TIME.
Egyptians are credited with developing one of the first distillation machines to extract oils from certain plants such as cedarwood, clove, cinnamon, which were used to embalm the dead. The practice of using infused aromatic oils as a mood enhancer, however, is thought to have roots in China. .
The Greeks also played a role in the history of aromatherapy. Megallus, a Greek perfumer, developed a fragrance he called megaleion, which consisted of myrrh. The "father of medicine" Hippocrates is said to have practiced aromatherapy (before it was dubbed so) for healing purposes. Greek mythology claims the gods were gifted with the knowledge of perfume and fragrance. .
The actual term "aromatherapy" first originated in 1937 when French chemist Rene-Maurice Gattefosse invented the word after a burn incident spurred his curiosity about the healing power of essential oils. On the heels of Gattefosse's "discovery" that lavender oil helped to cure his burn, French surgeon Jean Valnet used essential oils to help heal soldiers' wounds in World War II, proving the medical benefits of aromatherapy.

While outdoor grows abound in California’s adult-use market, the state’s supply of recreational cannabis is dominated by indoor and greenhouse producers in Santa Barbara and Humboldt counties.
According to licensing data released by the California Department of Food and Agriculture, 1,192 of the 2,906 recreational cultivation licenses issued throughout the state – or 41% – were for outdoor grows.
However, more than 80% of the state’s current estimated annual adult-use production capacity comes from indoor or greenhouse cultivation operations. (Unlike greenhouses – which use natural sunlight – indoor grows rely exclusively on artificial lighting.) Relative to indoor and greenhouse facilities, the production capacity of outdoor growers is limited.
They can harvest only once a year, and yields are generally lower given their complete reliance on Mother Nature to maintain temperature and control lighting conditions. Indoor and greenhouse growers, by contrast, are able to harvest multiple times a year.
Onerous regulations or outright bans on outdoor cultivation sites by many California counties also have made it harder for outdoor grow operations to expand their footprints.
Of the 26 counties in the state that have issued cultivation licenses to date, 14 haven’t awarded any to outdoor growers.
More than half of all cultivation licenses issued in California went to businesses in two counties: Santa Barbara and Humboldt, both of which allow outdoor grow sites. Those counties account for approximately 42% of the state’s total production capacity.
Santa Barbara County is also home to 13 of 20 of the largest cultivation operations in the state, with the average licensee holding nearly 13 grower licenses – well above the average of 1.4 licenses per licensee throughout the rest of the state.
According to Kristin Nevedal, chair of the International Cannabis Farmers Association – a trade group that promotes sun-grown cannabis – Santa Barbara County has been a hotbed of cultivation activity because of the large amount of available greenhouse space.

A person with a penis may get an erection ("pop a boner") for many different reasons! An erection is when the penis fills up with blood and gets hard. Erections can happen if someone is turned on or some times for no reason at all! They go away on their own or after the person ejaculates (cums).
Feel a sore throat coming on? One of the most effective at-home remedies is gargling with warm salt water. This will decrease swelling and kill bacteria. If you have a particularly bad sore throat, try gargling hourly to help soothe your throat. ⠀
If your sore throat has lasted for more than a couple days and is paired with a fever of over 101 degrees, head to Trusted ER. If a red rash accompanies your sore throat or your throat feels blocked, it could also be a symptom of a much more serious problem. #themoreyouknow

I don’t know of any other store that gives 24% off all their products, then lets you earn points back to get more products for free! The icing on top is that all their products are healthy and non toxic! Shopping from YL is honestly the best decision ever!
Your body forms its own collagen by assembling together parts from the foods you eat.
For example, your body puts together the amino acids you get from your food and turns those amino acids into collagen.
In order to turn those ingredients into amino acids, they must first be broken down many times in the digestive system.
Then, they’re absorbed through the walls of the intestine and enter your bloodstream before being reassembled as collagen at the target site within your body – like your skin.
One of the problems with getting collagen through this method is that protein digestion is often incomplete, which can lead to very large peptide chains within the body.
These peptide chains may not be utilized efficiently, which ultimately leads to lower collagen levels.
Hydrolyzed Collagen, also known as collagen hydrolysate, is a specific type of collagen that is pre-engineered to be easier to absorb.
Instead of forcing your body to break down amino acids and then re-assemble those amino acids into collagen, hydrolyzed collagen skips that step.
Hydrolyzed collagen basically gives your body small, usable chain peptides and amino acids that are ready to go within your body.
These hydrolyzed collagen supplements are typically made from high-grade gelatin (extracted from cattle hides).
Gelatin actually contains all the essential amino acids required by the human body (except one, tryptophan).
Those amino acids include glycine, proline, hydroxyproline, glutamic acid, alanine, arginine, aspartic acid, and several others.
Gelatin also has the unique quality of being highly bioavailable.
The compound has 95% bioavailability according to some clinical studies, which means that very little of it goes to waste.
This is LOTS of info, but it’s important understand how these #powersupplements work for our bodies! Stay tuned for more good info!
Live resin is the end result of a process that starts with freshly harvested and undried cannabis flower. This is where terpene and flavonoids are at their peak. Unlike dried cannabis, where these volatile compounds begin to evaporate, the “live” flowers are flash frozen preserving as much of the flowers original terpenes and flavonoids as possible. Then continuing the extraction process under cryogenic temperatures, we are able to produce Live Resin, a highly potent extract with unparalleled flavor. The very essence of the flower the day it was harvested. #Themoreyouknow#azmmj#azconcentrates#azextracts#azprop203#liveresin#terps#710#710society#dab#hightimes#macromonday#macro#macrophotography
COLD SEASON: DON'T LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU!
Sharing a bit about my natural approach to warding off colds & coughs.
1.) Listen closely to your body. When you feel even the slightest sore throat or hint of symptoms, THIS is the time to act!
2.) Get lots of sleep, take a nap, cancel extra plans - expending extra energy drains the energy your body needs to fight off the koodies.
3.) Don't exercise. Same reason as above. REST!
4.) EAT. You know that saying "feed your cold"? That's what this is about. You need nutrients to arm your body to fight off germs.
5 .) However, don't eat sugar! Weakens the immune system. I avoid sugar and when I used to eat dairy, I would stop until I felt better. You need things like homemade chicken soup right now, not ice cream.
6.) Lots of liquids to help flush the system: herbal tea & lemon water.
7.) Skip the coffee. If you're addicted to caffeine, have green tea for a few days until better. I know, I used to drink coffee every day and tea was a painful sub, but you're an adult and you can do it.
8.) Supplements: what I take: vitamin C with Zinc, vitamin D with K2, my regular B vitamins, turmeric supplement.
9.) Other natural remedies I swear by: elberberry syrup, Folk Fyre by @wholeharmony (or look for Fire Cider, same thing), gargle with sea salt for a sore throat, ColdCalm by Boiron, echinnacea tincture or tea.
10.) Also ingredients like ginger, turmeric, lemon and cinnamon are great to add into tea or food.
I'll stress again, the earlier you listen to your body, the better chance you have to catch it before you get a full blown cold, cough or flu. So skip the vodka and the gym, make some tea, and go to sleep early.
Hi, my name is Colette and I’m a professional procrastinator. 😂 Working on a class for my Young Living group about an hour before it’s set to go live.
Anyone else a professional at putting things off til go time? Somehow it all always works out.
What is Follicle Food and why do we need it?
I'm sure we all look enviously at people who have seemingly perfectly growing, thick and healthy hair.........I must admit, I kind of hate these people ;)
These people will more than likely have naturally high levels of the needed vitamins and minerals in their blood to allow their hair to grow like this.
Most of us, due to genetics/lifestyle/diet etc, do not have the ideal blood nutrients to grow our hair at its best. But there's no need to fear, we can directly FEED our follicles to boost those nutrients levels to where we need them.
In a liquid vial form, Follicle Food is the next generation and future of Hair Care!
Liquid shot vials mean:
MORE purer form of ingredients,
Why does Acti have this technology FIRST?
Because we ARE the laboratories!! We are always at the forefront of all the latest technology!

Posted @withrepost • @katiecouric “Happy #monday everyone! I’m back in NYC and getting into the groove again (albeit I’m moving a bit slowly thanks to the jet lag 🤪)Today’s #mondaymotivation comes from Grace Hopper - who I wanted to share a story about with you all.
At Yale University, there was a building named Calhoun College, after Yale alumnus and former Vice President, John C. Calhoun. Calhoun was the most “strident articulator” of slavery as a positive good - for both slave holders and slaves. This upset both staff and students at the university, leading to protests on campus to change the name of the building - spearheaded by then student, now Yale alumnus @daijmoore (who I spoke with for my @natgeo series America Inside Out!) Their voices were heard, and Calhoun College was officially renamed Grace Hopper College - after Yale alumnus, pioneer computer scientist and US Navy Admiral Grace Hopper. #mondaymotivation#inspiringwomen#themoreyouknow#americainsideout#regram from @melindafrenchgates

Penny is hungry! Here she is doing a few of her tricks before dinner.😍 Did you know that when a dog tilts their head like that, they're actually communicating with you? If you ask a dog, "Are you hungry?" or "Do you want to go outside?" and they tilt their head quickly to the side, it is like they are saying, "Yes!" It is often how a dog communicates interest. You will notice dogs doing the head tilt when you are holding a toy they want or getting ready for an activity they enjoy. #themoreyouknow 🌈

It's hard to know sometimes when our pets are in pain or if they're just in a #mood . Here's what to look for (ANY species!) .
1. #grooming and #licking are extra ( nb this may become #selftrauma if not addressed)
2. #panting and open mouth breathing
3. #inappetence avoiding food can spiral into other problems * especially in cats, horses, and rabbits
4. #hiding and shying away from pets, and sleeping loads
5. #aggression when touched or cornered
6. #posture and gait changes like an arched back and/or #lameness , moving more slowly; also note if your pet has changed positions whilst #snoozing and #toilets
7. #accidents or what looks like #incontinence cos it's too painful to get up and go
8. #behavior changes generally may indicate #pain
Contact your vet asap if you think your pet might be in pain so we can find the under lying problem and try to #fixit ! #knowledgeispower#themoreyouknow
Bringing your recycling to Recycle Utah during this busy shipping season? Remember, envelopes that are a mix of paper and plastic are not recyclable. So, when you load up your car to bring your recycling to us leave these guys at home.
We encourage you to reuse them when possible. And, reach out to the shipper to let them know you would like them to use all paper mailers in the future.

Human Trafficking is a thriving business. The International Labor Organization (ILO) estimates that the illegal human trafficking industry bring in over $150 billion dollars annually. Add the earnings of companies like Facebook, Disney, Google, Microsoft, and Apple, and you would not even scratch the surface of that number. Human beings should never be for sale. I’m wearing my dress today because I understand that an issue as big as human trafficking requires a collaborative approach. It requires all of us.
