Be Focused!

Is anybody out there dealing with attention deficit issues?

If you or someone you love has ADHD, you know that being focused is nothing to take for granted!

We deal with ADHD at our house, and we choose not to use prescription medications.  Instead, we’ve opted to drink more water, eat more nutritiously, get more exercise, and to take healthy supplements.

A multivitamin is in order for most people.  The average American diet just doesn’t provide the body with everything it needs.  And the brain, just as every other part of the body, needs good nutrition to work properly.  We recommend SuperKids for children between the ages of 4 and 12.  For teens, we recommend SuperDad for the boys and SuperMom or SuperLady for the girls.

Cod Liver Oil has been called “Food for the Brain” because of its potential benefits to the brain and nervous system.  Some research suggests that the omega fatty acids in Cod Liver Oil may play a role in healthy brain development in babies and children.

Studies have shown that many people who have ADHD also have a deficiency of Vitamin B.  For that, we recommend B-Better,  a B Vitamin complex that includes thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6), biotin, folic acid and the cobalamins (vitamin B12).

Bee FocusedAnd now, Beeyoutiful has introduced a blend of essential oils known for being both kid-friendly and extremely supportive of those struggling with attention problems.  Bee Focused can be applied on the bottoms of the feet, on the chest, and down the spine and neck.  We just started using Bee Focused today in our home, so it’s too soon to talk about results just yet.  But it might be worth noting that, while an unfocused school day sometimes lasts into the evening, today we finished school at 2:00!

 

Where to Start?

Where to startI’ve been asked several times lately where to start with vitamins and supplements and just generally being more healthy.  As I’ve said many times before, I’m not a doctor or a natural health expert.  I’m just passing on the things I’ve learned and recommending some products that have helped my family.

Sometimes I get excited about something I’ve learned and my gush comes across sounding like, “You really ought to try this!”  But what I really mean is, you really ought to read about this and see if you think this will be good for you or your family.

So, where to start?  The first thing to do is to check your daily water intake.  If you’re not already drinking half your body weight in ounces of water every single day–more if you’re exercising or working outside–start now.  If you weigh 120 pounds, drink at least 60 ounces of water every day.  Just rehydrating your body can do wonders for your overall health.  How cool is that?  You don’t have to order anything to get started!  Click here to read more about the benefits of drinking water.

If your diet is providing all the essential vitamins and minerals needed for good health, great!  But, if it’s not, consider taking a multivitaminBeeyoutiful provides a multivitamin for every member of the family:  SuperMom, SuperLady, SuperDad and SuperKids.  You can click on the links to read about each one, or you can click here to see all our vitamins on one page.

If you have specific health interests, search this blog and others you trust.  Read, read, read.  Talk with your health care provider and make informed decisions before you add supplements to your health regimen.

There are ten products, some of which have already been mentioned, featured in the picture at the top of this post.  You can click on the links below to read more about each one and to decide if one or more of these might be a part of your own getting started.

My Beeyoutiful Pantry

The title of this post is misleading.  My kitchen pantry is anything but beautiful.  Well, my daughter did just recently organize it for me, so it looks a lot better than it did.  Still, it’s not beautiful.  But it IS Beeyoutiful!My Beeyoutiful Pantry ~ Beeyoutiful products in my pantryI guess you can tell from this photo that this family loves Beeyoutiful!

It all started with SuperMom.  That was our first purchase from Beeyoutiful.  Now there are SuperMom tablets and Vcaps for the ladies and SuperDad for the guys.   (In case you’re looking for it, there’s no SuperDad in the picture.  We’re out except for the ones in the keepers on the top right shelf!)   Other favorites are Cod Liver Oil, Cranberry Power CleanseRed Raspberry Leaves, and, of course, Tummy Tuneup.  And we can’t forget the Miracle and all the awesome essential oils.  Do you see anything else here you recognize?

You know, we’d have a lot more room in the pantry if we didn’t use so many Beeyoutiful products!  But that is completely out of the question!

Thanks, Beeyoutiful, for beeyoutifying my pantry!  🙂
