Eyeglasses are a necessity for some, but not necessarily an affordable one. Recently, various organizations have been trying to come up with creative ways to get eyeglasses to people can't afford them. Adaptive Eyecare has even devised self-adjustable glasses, which the wearer can adjust to their own prescription without having to see an optometrist.
Buying glasses can get very expensive, but it doesn't have to be. Online glasses retailers are becoming more and more common, and are an incredibly cheap alternative to purchasing glasses at brick-and-mortar stores.
Here's a breakdown of the steps to buying a pair of glasses online.
Fall is upon us and with it pumpkin pie, fall festivals, and a change in the weather that usually has my allergies acting up. While there are times when stuff just happens and we get sick no matter what we try, there are a couple of things I do at home to help prevent sickness and keep my immunity up.
1. Eat and drink plenty of Vitamin C. This means plenty of fruits and vegetables as well as juices. I do a lot of my own juicing at home too after making a stop at my local Natural Grocery Store. Vitamin C is great for immunity boosting and warding off colds.
2. Keep grapefruit seed extract spray on hand. Just a few squirts in my nose, and I'm good as new. Several times when I was coming down with something, I ended up perfectly fine after using this.
It's freebie time! I don't know about anyone else, but I love
going to my mailbox to see what freebies are there. Lately I've
been receiving a lot of K-Cup coffee offers I signed up for
about 6 weeks ago. Not just one K-Cup
either, they're four packs! Have you scored any of
the freebies offered in the Weekly Round-Up?

Ah, prescriptions. Most of us have to get them and some of them come at a premium price. As we get older, the amount of prescriptions we have to fill tends to add up. What are some ways you can get discounts on drugs?
Many of us grew up with red meat just once a week because Mom and Dad didn't make a lot of money. Red meat was a special treat, offered only once in a while. Because of this, some families see red meat on the table as proof of success. They may even feed their families red meat as much as three times a week. Sound familiar?
This kind of meat indulgence is bad for your wallet, body and the environment.
Last week I shared some natural antibiotic remedies. One of the
best things you can do for preventive medicine and your health is
to consume probiotics, which help line your gut flora with good
bacteria. When you have enough good bacteria, it's much less
likely you'll get develop an illness. Probiotics also make
you feel good!
There are many ways to increase your intake of probiotics, and you
can find many commercial varieties to buy and take. I've
found they are a little more expensive than I'd like to spend, so
I've looked into other ways to get the good bugs in.
