Noxicare Giveaway

I had never heard of Noxicare until just a few weeks ago when I was asked to write a review for the company. Noxicare is a natural pain relief cream, specially formulated for joint, nerve and musculoskeletal pain.

With all of us having some form of Arthritis and back problems I knew that this over the counter pain medication was a great product for all of us! The day we received our product to review Angela was having some pretty bad stomach cramps. We were not really sure if the creme would do much but I helped her to rub some over the cramping areas. Amazingly enough, this creme helped take the pain away! That same evening my back was really hurting so I had Johnnie rub some of the creme on my lower back. Within a short time I was feeling much better, and the pain continued to stay away all night! This is one pain relief creme that is definitely going to be a must for the Parga’s Junkyard Medicine Cabinet!

The first thing I noticed about this pain relief creme is that it is non-greasy and odorless with none of the heavy menthol odor’s I am used to in arthritic creams. Another benefit to Noxicare is that not only is it fast acting, but it lasts a long time! Made of Turmeric, Willow Bark, Ginger, Holy Basil, Rosemary Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acids and Boswellia Extract, Noxicare Pain Relief Creme is a completely natural over the counter pain medication that really works!

This chart from the Noxicare Website shows how each of these ingredients

works to help decrease pain and inflammation
Turmeric

Turmeric

One of the most powerful natural pain relievers known to exist; recognized for its anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric is a powerful herb in the ginger family that contains curcumin as its active ingredient. Curcumin provides the health benefits of turmeric and turmeric extract, useful as an anti-inflammatory agent and as an antioxidant. Studies have shown that turmeric may help reduce the pain and irritation experienced by patients with irritable bowel syndrome and its anti-inflammatory properties help to naturally relieve pain associated with arthritis by reducing inflammation in the joints.

Willow bark

Willow Bark

Has been used for natural pain relief and inflammation since the time of Ancient Egypt and Greece. The use of willow bark dates back thousands of years when patients chewed on the bark to reduce fever and inflammation. Willow bark continues to be used today for the treatment of pain (particularly low back pain, tension headaches and osteoarthritis), and inflammatory conditions such as bursitis and tendinitis.

Ginger

Ginger

Helps relieve muscle pains, arthritis and rheumatism, and is a catalyst for improving the effectiveness of other herbs. Ginger is an effective anti-inflammatory agent used for thousands of years to alleviate arthritis, headaches, rheumatism and sore throat, while also naturally relieving muscle strains and knee pains experienced by athletes. The medicinal part of ginger is the rhizome, an underground stem that most people refer to as the root. Western herbalists classify ginger as a carminative, which settles the intestine and eases pain by removing gas from the digestive tract. This versatile and useful herb also serves as a catalyst for improving the effectiveness of other natural pain relieving herbs found in Noxicare™.

Rosemary

Rosemary Extract

Has served a variety of purposes including topical use for joint or musculoskeletal pain. Ancient Egyptians knew to relieve musculoskeletal pain by rubbing rosemary extract oil into their skin. Today, rosemary has become important due to its natural pain relief ability, as well as stimulate hair growth, boost mental activity and relieve respiratory problems.

Holy basil

Holy Basil

Properties include anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antibacterial and antiviral. Holy Basil is a plant indigenous to India and extremely well-regarded as beneficial for many different health problems. Holy basil inhibits inflammatory-causing enzymes that contribute to arthritis and other types of pain caused by inflammation. Holy basil has antimicrobial and anti-viral properties, and expectorant properties as well, useful in respiratory tract infections and during respiratory stress.

Boswellia

Boswellia Extract

Boswellia is a genus of trees native to India known for their fragrant resin which has many pharmacological uses, particularly as an anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. Boswellia extracts and oils have been used to treat back pain and has been compared in effectiveness to steroids in treating Crohn’s disease and other intestinal problems—without causing ulcers like aspirin family medications.

Alpha Lipoic Acids

Alpha Lipoic Acids

Antioxidants used for treating diabetic neuropathy and increasing blood flow to the nerves. Acid Alpha Lipoic Acid is a natural pain relief antioxidant made by every cell in the body, and is also found in foods such as red meats and spinach. It is well known for its proven pain relieving abilities, particularly against numbness, burning and pain often associated with diabetic neuropathy. ALA also helps vitamins C and E work better, and is used to treat and detox the liver.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.
Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Motivational Scripture

Image

I am having a difficult time with organizing my home. I know that it is something that I need to do. I have been praying and asking the Lord to help me. I did a web search for motivational scripture and here are some that I came up with. 

 

Proverbs 14:23 

In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty.

Galatians 6:9 

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.

1 Peter 5:7 

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Matthew 6:33 

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Philippians 4:13 

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

1 Corinthians 15:58 

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

Psalm 37:5 

Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.

1 Corinthians 10:13 

No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

TV Fall Line-up

Image

Back when I had a life, I used to watch a lot of television. What constitutes a lot? Well we will leave that between me and my DVR. In the past I was so excited about the new fall season that I would email my friends and tell them all about the new shows and returning favorites. I thought that I would relive those days by posting about some of the new shows and returning favorites of the 2012-2013 season.

 

New Shows:

Now that I am a full-time college student, along with my regular daytime job and my full time mom gig I can’t watch every new show that strikes my fancy. But, here I will list the ones I would watch if I had the time and 1 or 2 that I may record to watch on those rare moments when I don’t have something else to do. 

For a complete list of New shows this season you can check out tv guide.com

Revolution NBC Premieres: Monday, September 17 at 10:00/9:00c ( I think I will watch this one)
Leave it to J.J. Abrams (Lost) and Eric Kripke (Supernatural) to come up with a mythology-heavy drama. Set in a post-apocalyptic future where there is no electricity, the series stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Tracy Spiridakos, Billy Burke and Giancarlo Esposito as a group of people struggling to figure out how the technology vanished and who holds the figurative power among the survivors. We don’t think this is what people meant by going green. (tvguide.com)

 

Partners (CBS) Premieres: Monday, Sept. 24 at 8:30/7:30c
Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick give us another pair of straight and gay BFFs, but this time, it’s a bromance! However, the tight bond between Louis (Michael Urie) and Joe (David Krumholtz) is tested after Joe proposes to his longtime girlfriend Ali (Sophia Bush). Don’t feel too bad for Louis — his boyfriend is Superman Brandon Routh.(tvguide.com)

 

Go On (NBC)Premieres: Tuesday, September 11 at 9/8c (might check it out)
What’s so funny about grief? Matthew Perry’s about to show us. The Friends alum returns to NBC as Ryan King, a sportscaster who turns to a motley crew support group after his wife dies. How eclectic are these guys? The lead therapist, Lauren (Laura Benanti), honed her skills in a Weight Watchers group. (tvguide.com)

 

Chicago Fire (NBC)Premieres: Wednesday, October 10 at 10:00/9:00c (I might have to watch this one with my husband who is a volunteer fire fighter)
Dick Wolf is back with another procedural, this one focusing on the firefighters of Chicago’s Firehouse 51 and starring Jesse Spencer, Taylor Kinney and David Eisenberg. But unlike his Law & Order franchise, this drama will focus on the personal lives of its (often shirtless) heroes. So how long before a New York Fire or a Los Angeles Fire?

 

Returning Shows- New Season- These are the returning shows that I plan to watch

Survivor Philippines premiers September 19th on CBS 

How I met your mother returns on September 24th 

Grimm- New episodes already began in August, Friday on NBC

Revenge ABC September 30th
