As a woman suffering the symptoms of menopause and not keen on taking hormone supplements, I turned to Delgado Protocol for a solution to my hot flashes, cramps and moodiness. This all natural, vegan supplement is promoted as helping my symptoms and also cystic acne, which I don't have but do have an occasional breakout.
I do not want to take hormonal replacement because breast cancer runs in my family and if you don't have the right combination of hormones, it can actually cause cancer cells to grow. This natural alternative is exactly what I was looking for.
Update: It has been about a month and I have completed the bottle. I have not lost any weight, however I have not gained any either. I don't feel as edgy or jittery as I did pre supplement, so I think it is doing something, however I have not had any other measurable changes. It seems as it is a subtle adjustment as is most supplements. I was excited and anxious to try the Estro Block. The gel caps are palatable but do have an aftertaste and odor to them. I have had other products from Delgado protocol which were pretty special and worked great. They are made from all natural ingredients. In my opinion, any metabolic supplement works differently on everyone depending on their chemical makeup. I think it is worth a try before turning to hormone replacement .

Myrrh is a resin from a tree which grows in Africa and the Mideast. Myrrh is botanically related to Frankincense and is one of the most widely used botanicals in the world dating back for centuries. In fact, more than 2000 years ago, the Magi brought gifts of Frankincense and Myrrh to the Baby Jesus. It was considered to be a very rare and exquisite gift.
Today it is used primarily in essential oils. The Myrrh has a very mild pleasant scent compared to some of the other essential oils. It is a great relaxant not to mention the fact that it is also anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic. The use of Myrrh has been showing promise in cancer research. Due to the anti-oxidant properties, it is also beneficial to mix with jojoba oil to use as a skin rejuvenator or in wound healing. Personally, I have been enjoying it in the diffuser. I did mix a batch up with some Jojoba oil to use on my skin as well. It has been my experience that the Simply Earth essential oils are always high quality and pure. Protected from light the oil is contained in an amber colored bottle for freshness and potency. The bottle dispenser ensures that none is wasted, dispensing only a drop at a time.
I can’t write a review without mentioning that this company gives back to humanity. They contribute a portion of each sale to a cause that affects us globally. A percentage of the sales of their essential oils goes toward stopping human trafficking. I applaud their generosity, responsibility and concern. They are certainly doing their part to make a difference.
I received a discount on the Simply Earth Myrrh Essential Oil for testing, evaluation and unbiased review which I have provided. I find it to be one of the best and would definitely recommend it.
The 100% cotton straps have 2 metal D rings for holding poses, increasing flexibility and balance. They are well made with heavy duty stitching. A very good quality that allows you to confidently rely on to hold your weight. In fact, when my husband saw them, he thought they were straps to move the refrigerator! (Our delivery men had similar ones to do just that very task.) The length is quite generous so it can be used comfortably by just about anyone,of any size.
I love the pink and purple colors. It is the little things like fun colors that catch my eye and make me happy. The dual pack is reasonably priced. Each strap is packaged separately so that you can keep one and give the other one to a friend.
Disclosure: I received the pair of yoga straps at little or no cost in exchange for testing, evaluation and unbiased review.
The Slim Blend PRO with 50+ Organic Super foods from Delgado is a healthy meal replacement formula which actually tastes good. I have been drinking this in place of lunch. I make it up in the morning in a shaker bottle and take it to work with me. I put it in skim milk; however it can also be used in water or juice as specified. The product itself is vegan and dairy free, so I guess by using milk, I am defeating my purpose in that respect but I am not lactose intolerant nor am I a vegan but I do appreciate the purity of this product for those who are or have allergies.
After several weeks of drinking this shake for lunch 5 days a week and skipping weekends, I have felt a renewed energy and have actually lost a couple of pounds. I do not feel sluggish and bloated. I have to admit that I was chalking up those feelings to age. In addition to the protein, there is also a probiotic which regulates the digestive system keeping all of your inner works running smoothly. Considering, that this is good for you, it tastes pretty good and I actually look forward to enjoying my liquid lunch.
I am all into the science of metabolism, weight loss and nutrition and have found this product to be superior to anything on the market today. I won’t go into details and molecular make-up because you can do this research on Delgado Natural’s website but what I will tell you is that it is the most complete food which gives your body the fuel to function at your peak and nourish without excess to be stored. There is no guessing here. I am also considering doing a liquid diet one day per week. It is tough, especially for a rotund Italian woman who loves her pasta, wine and bread but this diet has been the most sustainable I have found.
The product comes in a large canister with measuring scoop. There are 60 servings, so this jar is very economical. I usually spend 5-10 dollars for lunch each day so considering that this will give me two months’ worth of lunches, it is a bargain, not to mention the health benefits that I am reaping! Accompanying the supplement is a colorful booklet for you to get the most out of your product. In addition to the Slim Blend, there is a wide array of other blends tailored for individual needs. The booklet features those products as well, so that you can choose the right combination for your individual need.
I have received two products from this company to test, evaluate and review. The second product is Stem Cell Strong Super food which is a combination of herbs and super foods like Spirlulina. Spirluina is an algae which NASA actually considered using as a food source for Astronauts in a space station because it is one of the most complete food sources on earth.
This product is also gluten free, dairy free, cholesterol free, soy free, wheat free, low fat, zero sugar and *Chocolate Flavor*, yum…It complements the Slim Blend and can be added to the shake or on its own. The Stem Cell Strong has many health benefits. It boosts your immune system, synchronizes hormones, increases libido, supports healthy acid-alkaline balance, helps with joint health and inflammation, not to mention that it is also gluten free, dairy free, cholesterol and soy free, wheat free and has 0 fat and cholesterol! Wow, it really is a super food! Did I mention that it tastes great too! Ok, maybe that is going a little too far but it doesn’t taste horrible. It does have a vitamin taste to it. The chocolate flavoring does help to disguise it though.
Bottom line: Good Stuff for Good Health!

The Aromatherapy cool mist Essential oil Diffuser from VicTsing is decorative and functional. I have several diffusers, some large, some small but this one is both. Let me explain. The water tank holds enough water for 6-8 hours and the size is of the actual unit is about the size of a grapefruit. I have larger ones that only last 3 hours. It comes with a measuring cup so that you don’t have to guess how much water to use. The lid fits tightly preventing leakage and damage to your furniture.
The sleek design and dark wood grain goes with almost any décor. There is a soft pastel colored light which transition from cool blues to warmer reds and every color in between. The cool mist can be seen coming out of the narrow chimney top, delivering therapeutic scented mist. Essential oils have been used for centuries as medicinal remedies. Today we use them in holistic medicine to calm, sooth and also treat certain ailments. This diffuser is an attractive way to deliver those oils to the body and soul.
If you are looking for a great Mother’s Day gift that is unique, functional and beautiful, then consider the VicTsing Essential Oil Diffuser.
When I got this supplement to review, I thought it was just one more fad in a string of supplements on the market. There was something about this one though that was different than the others and that is that it works on your metabolism. It doesn’t swell up in your tummy to make you feel full and it doesn’t make you nauseous. But does it work?
Well, I have done a bit of research on the ingredients in this supplement. This all natural combination of ingredients was specifically formulated to regulate your metabolism. It includes anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidants designed to activate your fat burning, energy producing enzymes. In other words, this mimics calorie restriction and exercise. This is doable!

I got my first bottle at no cost in exchange for testing and evaluation. I have been taking these pills for a couple of weeks and have not experienced any weight loss as far as the scale, however I have felt thinner, less bloat. Taking the pills also makes me more conscious of what I eat. I do feel a renewed energy and with Spring here, I also want to get out more and walk. The science is there as far as this product. You have to get your mind there also and commit to a sensible diet. Just because you take diet pills does not mean that you can eat anything that you want.
Based on my experience with this product, I would say it is worth a try. Normally this sells for $79 but you can get it for less than half on Amazon.
The Riverock Essential Oil Diffuser by Deneve® is an awesome quality diffuser. It has a unique style, shaped like a river rock with a band of ever changing colors. I couldn’t decide if I wanted it in the bathroom or bedroom. I opted for the bedroom because it is both soothing and romantic. I was pleasantly surprised when I got it, much nicer than the photo, it was packaged very nicely and would make a great gift, but also in the box was a measuring cup which fits just the right amount of water. I added a few drops of Eucalyptus oil, turned it on and watched the light show. The scent filled the room within minutes. This is the second diffuser that I own but the first that is both a diffuser and ionizer. This design also offers much more stability than some of the tall thin ones The soft bubbling sounds provide a tranquil environment eliminating any mechanical sounds The switches are cleverly hidden on the bottom of the unit so to turn it on, you press on your “river rock” There are several settings, so dependent on your preference, lights, mist, lights with mist that would determine how many presses. This diffuser has an automatic shut off when the reservoir is empty. It is easy to use and to clean. I like the fact that a portion of the proceeds from the sales of these diffusers is donated to charity. To me, that demonstrates a responsible company. So to sum it up, this diffuser is modern and sleek, easy to use. I definitely recommend this product to an essential oil beginner or pro. I will be using this for many nights as a mood and sleep enhancer.

Health Shield Essential Oil is a unique blend of my favorite Essential oils. Healing Solutions blends only the purest oils, Clove, Lemon, Rosemary, Cinnamon and Eucalyptus therapeutic grade essential oils. Combined, these oils boost your immunity. I never heard the tale of the Thieves oil and found it interesting that this oil actually protected the thieves from getting the plague! I guess I wouldn’t go that far but it is a good oil to have around. I love the smell. The aroma is heavenly and great in a diffuser. It gives your home that warm cozy feeling while promoting well-being. I have also put a drop or two in my chamomile tea before bedtime. It adds a nice bouquet to the tea and it helps me sleep while building my immunity. I also like to mix it with a little rosehip oil and rub it on my throat and neck the vapors help open my sinuses and I sleep better. I feel comfortable putting it on my skin because it is a therapeutic grade. I was given a discount on this bottle for the purpose of testing, evaluation and unbiased review which I have provided. Now that I have had this opportunity to try this, I will continue to use Health Shield Essential Oil because I find it to be very beneficial.
The instructions tell you to spray 10 sprays to your lower abdomen 2 sprays to each of your shoulders, lower back, knees, feet, ankles and on sore muscles. In other words, spray your whole body. It is a clear odorless liquid, like spraying water, I am pretty wet after application but it does air dry pretty quickly, especially if I massage it into my skin. I am prone to Charley horses so I massage it into my calf muscles morning and nighttime.
