Fabulous giveaway! Every one I know is sick.I've got a sore throat. I'm going to listen to those podcasts and enter the giveaway.
Interesting series, I will definitely look into Oscillo for the preschool sick season.
Okay, they're giving me the same error message for my comments. Grrr.
hi cammie, naomi + bebemiqui!

Hi, I belong to a group that orders
I couldn't get the site to take my comments.
thanks for telling me laura :)
This is perfect. My daughter keeps getting sick (sinus crap) so I'm going to send her over here to have a listen. Wish we even had a Whole Foods in our area.
Thanks for helping us stay healthy this cold and flu season! What I learned:
What did I learn from the PodCast? All kinds of stuff! But I particularly liked the info about Oscillo being used to minimize the cold and increase recovery time.
I forgot to leave my email address:
well i left comments in all three but i think that i goofed because where it asks website i put mod*mom but I did not mention you in the space that you leave your comment. Is there anyway to change your comment or add to it? Well all three had great information and I will be on my way down there today to get the wellnsss formula and the probotics.
I learned a lot about the immune system and homeopathic products that can support it. This will be useful during the flu season. I especially liked the Malia Curran podcast, for its general information about how things like medicinal mushrooms and probiotics can protect us, and how we can also reduce our chance of getting sick by managing lifestyle: stress! I learned more in the podcasts for Oscillo and Wellness Formula about prevention, as well as reducing the severity of illness by using these products to strengthen the immune system at the first sign that your body is doing battle with a nasty bug! Thanks.
Ginger helps your immune system. I guess I'mg going to have to eat more. My own tip is to wash your hands frequently to get rid of germs that could cause cold/flue
I heart Whole Foods! I'm there every week. I love going to a market where I don't have to read every label to find out if something has MSG, nitrates, etc. etc.
Hello! What a thoughtful gift basket of items to giveaway at this time of year. We are all stuffy, with sore
Oh...this is so right up my alley. Sinus issue should be in my name somewhere (avoidance of red wine darn it, should be highlighted)...with megadoses of allergy/sinus/decongestants. I'll try healthier options! THanks!!!
Oh, we could use this. I've been fighting a cold for the past two weeks, taking cold-ease, zinc, and extra vitamin c. I survived it and was still able to do everything I needed.
I learned a little more on the immune system!! Thanks for the link!
I definitely learned some new things! We have been sick on and off for a month now. We will be trying Oscillo!
I will try some of these, we have been fighting "the crud" since thanksgiving. Thanks
My husband is a teacher and although he seems to be immune, I get everything he brings home. P.S. being sick over Christmas doesn't bring out the joy in the season. :)
Fantastic information! Thank you so much for pointing me in the direction of Whole Foods. I am new to the Whole Foods store in my area. Having one son with asthma and another with sensitivities to OTC meds. and cow milk, I sought out alternatives to the local grocery store. I knew our entire family would benefit form a few key changes.
i extended the deadline, because the podcast comments weren't working at first + then everybody is so busy with holidays + year end stuff.
Wow fantastic prizes, I've been fighting pneumonia for 3 weeks now.
I love the information on that website. I am always looking for ways to keep our family healthy. Thanks for passing along the link and having another great contest.
Thanks for those podcasts. I will definitely be passing on that information about Oscillo to some of my friends with young kids. The BIG thing I learned, though, was that symptoms are a way for the body to heal itself. That really makes me think. I always thought symptoms were adverse effects from the virus, but in all reality they're just a way for the body to help us. Thanks for the great blog (and giveaway)!
a whole foods just opened near by! finally. my 7 month old and i practically live there. they sell organic baby clothes too...and dog toys so they don't get left out either.
I found the information extremely helpful and will definitely use ginger since it is great for the immune system. I take Vitamin C daily as well as Noni which helps various ailments. Thanks for the giveaway.
I could always learn something new regarding my health and the various remedies around. Since I teach it is great to know about the use of different items and how they affect the body. Wonderful giveaway which is so useful.
Thanks for the podcasts and this lovely giveaway. It is interesting to know more about Oscillo and I will try it. I take fish oil and vitamins daily which I think is important.
The series has great info. I workout and eat healthy foods. I had never heard about Oscillo which is interesting. I used to take ginger and tumeric but stopped but will start again since it is beneficial.
