Ugh…wintry cold season, icky sicky feelings, runny noses, coughs, germs, you name it, it’s here. G R O S S. What more can I say? It’s no wonder then that, as a parent, I try to look for different ways to keep my child healthy and well despite the changing temperatures and influx of germie wormies. Sleep more, eat well, washing hands, coughing in to your elbow, you know all that stuff but if I can get some extra help, I will.

Enter St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids. Well, that’s quite the tongue twister. Now, I didn’t stumble upon this product on my own. I went to my local trusted health food store, asked a bunch of questions and St. Francis Herb Farm Deep Immune Kids is what the staff recommended. It sounded simple enough to use and offered an extra immune boost for my child so I took it home with me. - Continue Reading

Our family tries to stay healthy. Given the wintry weather and all the coughing and sneezing that goes around during this time of the year, you can’t help but try everything you can to stay healthy.

Ever since I hurt my back a few months ago (seems like an eternity but it wasn’t THAT far back) and had that long chat with my massage therapist, I’ve taken a much more serious look at how our family can stay healthy. In particular, I decided to pick up the Natural Factors Children’s Multi Probiotic for my big kid. Why this brand? Well, I went to my trusty health food store and they suggested I try it so I did. Given that I’m a newbie when it comes to children’s probiotic, why not try Natural Factors Children’s Multi Probiotic?

Back on December 20, 2012, ThingsThatWeDo.com did a product review on the Barlean’s Olive Leaf Extract which I still continue to love. At that time, I raved about the potential benefits that I feel like I’m getting from taking the Barlean’s Olive Leaf Extract.

My only outstanding thought at that time was that I couldn’t determine if in fact the ingredients were organic. Although the company itself is called Barlean’s Organic Oils, because the ingredients weren’t listed as organic, there was a big question mark left in my brain.

With that big question mark, I decided to contact the Barlean’s Organic Oils company and I learned the following information. According to the email I received from a representative at Barlean’s, they work exclusively with a farm out of Australia. The Archer family provides them with the olive leaves and although it does not have an organic certification, I have been assured that the farm does not use herbicides or pesticides to treat their olive leaf plants.

Deep breath and sigh of relief!! After reading this email, let me send a big online thank you to Barlean’s for sending me this detailed email that gives me the peace of mind I needed to continue to include the Barlean’s Olive Leaf extract in my health regime. Times are changing, there is no doubt about it so thumbs up to Barlean’s for making such a quality product available to consumers!

Did you just scratch your head or furrow your brow because you have no idea what I’m talking about? Have you never heard of olive leaf extract before? Well, not to worry because up until a recent shopping trip to my local health food store, I hadn’t heard about it either.

There was a staff member who was introducing shoppers to Barlean’s Olive Leaf Extract. According to her, Barlean’s Olive Leaf Extract is a super fighter antioxidant that supercedes green tea, grape seed extract, and vitamin C. Barlean’s Olive Leaf Extract is also supposed to be a great thing to take right about now with all the icky sicky wintry colds and bugs that are going around (I don’t even want to mention that part in case one of those icky bugs actually hears my fingers typing). The staff person did tell me that the Barlean’s Olive Leaf Extract is generally a benefit for everyone so long as you don’t have low blood pressure already.

Given that I’m up to trying just about anything that isn’t too financially onerous, I don’t have any concerns with my blood pressure, and this might be something that my readers have never heard of, I purchased a bottle of the Barlean’s Olive Leaf Extract to see exactly what all the excitement was about.

You’ve got a cold and maybe a sore throat. Most of us know about those big brand name sore throat lozenges. You can smell them from a mile away and they’ve often got that really strong mint flavour. I’ve used them in the past and I always found them a little lacking. Sure, they always seemed to work at first but I couldn’t help but feel as though the intensity of the flavour was somehow trying to bore a hole through my cheek.

I was sick recently and it wasn’t fun. My nose was dripping and my throat was sore. I drank a lot of the Stash Lemon Ginger tea with a ton of honey and it seemed to do wonders but there is only so much tea I can drink without constantly being stuck in the bathroom. I decided to go to my local health food store to see what I could get for that sore throat of mine.

The staff that I spoke with showed me to all the different sore throat lozenges that were available and I didn’t recognize any of them. So, uh, which one do I pick? End result: the staff highly recommended these Wedderspoon organic manuka honey lozenges. She said that among the lozenges available, these had the best flavour and were very soothing at the same time too. This seemed like the right time to do a product review on these Wedderspoon organic manuka honey lozenges for ThingsThatWeDo.com.

Visit the Herbon website after reading this product review by ThingsThatWeDo.com

Do you have a sore throat? Do you wish you had other options to ease that sore throat of yours? Recently, I came across Herbon Rockhoppers Echinacea Cough and Sore Throat Drops at my local pharmacy. The snowboarding penguin immediately caught my attention. After that, the ‘all naturally sourced active ingredients’ tag on the bag intrigued me even more. Result: a product review for Herbon Rockhoppers Echinacea Cough and Sore Throat Drops for ThingsThatWeDo.com. Cost for us: $2.99. The question I wanted to answer for this product review site is: Would these more natural cough and sore throat lozenges work as well as the mainstream brands that everyone knows?

‘Tis the season to be cautious, fah lah lah lah lah, lah lah lah lah. Take your Halls Vitamin C today….’ Okay, I could continue on with the song, but I think you catch my drift. As the writer and reviewer for thingsthatwedo.com, you all know by now that I’m no doctor so I obviously can’t give medical advice. What I try to do is give my own thoughts on products or events my family has tried or has been to.

As the weather gets cooler and I see people around me coughing up a storm, I have to say that Halls vitamin C is often a staple in my purse. Why?
