Natural alternatives to acetaminophen - Phoenix Alternative Medicine |

'via Blog this'

I was trying to find an alternative brand to Tylenol and I found some natural pain relievers :D Skullcap, Capsaicin, Curcumin and white willow bark. I was told by my pharmacist that acetaminophen was okay to take with my Celebrex for a backache (only acetaminophen - Not aspirin, Doans  or other NSAIDS). I looked in my cupboard and all the products containing acetaminophen contained aspirin or something else. So I am still on the hunt for a pharmacy product however I now have this great list of alternatives to Share and I will post more information when I find where to buy and how to use them. :D

Multi -tasking ...maybe this''ll motivate the housework ~ The Workout you may already do!

I love this one. I did not rewrite any of it as I am not a fitness advisor. I did like it enough to share because it seems reasonable to me 10 minutes of certain housework is definitely working out! HealthFitness Jan 10 to me Welcome to the Tip of the Day! See this on my Pinterest! *** Today's Tip: HOUSEHOLD WORKOUTS Everyday chores count. The American College of Sports Medicine and the American Heart Association consider raking leaves and vacuuming as moderate physical activity, as long as you are working for at least 10 minutes at a time! Your goal should be to accumulate at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week. Small pieces of activity count towards this goal as well. Consider 10-minute increments three times a day. Let’s get cleaning! Source: American College of Sports Medicine

I was given a free product or sample because I'm a Klout influencer. I was under no obligation to receive the sample or talk about this company. I get no additional benefits for talking about the product or company.

This doctor made the best video for osteoarthritis exercises and tips. The best way for me to have handy access and maybe hear other people's opinions is to put it on my lovely blog. I have a friend with rheumatoid arthritis and perhaps there are tips on here for her too. Huge site! Lots of info!
