5 Products That Absolutely Changed The Game For My Health

5 Products That Absolutely Changed The Game For My Health

Most of you probably know, I’ve been dealing with over 20+ chronic conditions, feeding tubes, infusions, and countless medications for the past decade. It’s been a tough road, to say the least. That’s why I’m constantly on the hunt for products that can make improving my health a little bit easier. And let me tell you, these products are absolute GAME-CHANGERS. I recommend them to anyone who will listen because I truly believe in them. I’m beyond excited to share them with you and I would love to hear your experiences with them as well. I don’t just hope, I KNOW they’ll make a positive impact on your health, just like they did for me!

Under Desk Bike

“Under-desk pedals are small, portable devices that allow you to pedal while seated at your desk or workstation. They provide a low-impact way to stay active and fit during the day and can help you burn extra calories, improve your focus, and boost your mood.”

Have you heard of under-desk bike pedals? They’re like an under-desk treadmill, but in my opinion, even better because you can sit! These pedals have honestly made such a difference in my life – which sounds crazy to say about some under-desk pedals, but you guys – it really has! They’ve helped me improve in physical therapy, increased my focus while I work, and allowed me to get low-impact exercise for hours every day while I work!

Even on my busiest days, I can still move my legs and get the benefits of exercise. Plus, there’s research that shows under desk bike pedals can boost your mood, focus, and productivity (you can read the science behind the benefits on this post here) while burning an extra 600-900 calories a day depending on how long you use them. The best part is that it’s so easy, you forget you’re even pedaling!

This small tool has truly had a big impact on my life. I’ve noticed improvements in my health, focus, and productivity and I can’t recommend it enough. If you’re looking for an easy way to get more movement and exercise into your day, under-desk bike pedals at 20-30 dollars they are SO worth it!

Oura Ring

The Oura ring is a device that tracks various aspects of your health, including sleep patterns, heart rate, body temperature, and activity levels. The ring provides personalized recommendations for improving your overall health and is a useful tool for optimizing your life.”

Wow, THIS RING – it’s a total game-changer! I was skeptical at first since I already had an Apple watch, but the Oura ring – Blew. Me. Away. It tracks SO many things like sleep patterns, heart rate, body temperature, and activity levels, and gives personalized recommendations for improving your overall health. It’s seriously the perfect tool for optimizing your life!

Since I started wearing the Oura ring, I’ve learned so much about how my body works and what it’s capable of on any given day. It’s helped me make better decisions about my health and well-being, and shown me where I can improve in ways that my Apple watch just couldn’t. I’m absolutely obsessed with it and always recommend it to people because I truly believe that knowledge is power and the more we can know about our bodies and our health, the better.

Whether you’re dealing with chronic illness or just want to stay on top of your health and wellness, the Oura ring is totally worth it. I can’t recommend it enough!

The Small Everyday decisions To Show Up Journal

“The “Small Everyday Decisions To Show Up” journal is a 6-month long, personalized tool designed to help you take ownership of your life, achieve your goals, and live the life of your dreams. Backed by science, this 5-minute daily journal includes tailored daily, weekly, and monthly questions using the enneagram as a framework to help get you closer to meeting your goals.”

Okay, okay, I know I might be a bit biased since I’m the one who made it, but hear me out – this journal really has helped me move forward and make big changes in my health. When I first started using it, I had all these big goals I had been working towards in my mind – like moving forward on my businesses and running half-marathons. But as I started jotting down these goals, I realized that I wasn’t actually struggling with them at all. What I really was needing to work on was actually my goal of continuing to move forward in my health journey. I had been avoiding the next step for a bit which was trying out new foods that weren’t just feeding tube formula. I know it probably sounds easy, but let me tell you – it most definitely is not.

To be honest, the thought of doing this scared me – physically and mentally. I had been putting it off for a while, but then I started using my journal for that goal and something clicked. I realized that my intention behind my goal had been misplaced all along and was actually a huge reason I wasn’t moving forward (you can read more about this experience here). Based on my enneagram type, I needed to tie my goal to something bigger than myself; in this case, how trying these new foods and taking care of my health would ultimately benefit the people I love and help others. By doing this, it completely changed my mindset and approach and made me so much more motivated to take make those small everyday decisions to show up and chip away at it. Every morning and night, I check in with myself and make intentional choices throughout the day, ensuring that I have progress to record later on. It has truly made a huge difference for me and unexpectedly become a valuable tool in this leg of my health journey. I couldn’t be more grateful for the positive impact it has had!

04. Prenuvo Scan

“Prenuvo is a healthcare company that provides full-body MRI scans to help detect early signs of diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and stroke. Their scans use advanced imaging technology to create a detailed and accurate picture of the body’s organs and tissues, allowing doctors to identify potential health problems at an early stage.”

As a full-time chronic illness patient, knowing what’s going on with my body is super, super, super important to me. I want to make sure we’re looking at and testing everything important to avoid attributing symptoms of one thing to something else.

But let’s be real here, the healthcare system can be a bit frustrating (yeah I know that is really downplaying it). Doctors only run tests if they feel there’s a reason to, and that reason usually isn’t solely preventative or for your peace of mind. Multiple times I’ve had to order my own labs and tests when I suspected something, only to have those suspicions confirmed by the results.  It wasn’t until I brought my doctors the lab results that I had ordered and paid for myself that they realized they missed the condition. I always shudder to think at how many times I just would not have known I had these things had I not tested myself!

So when I realized what I really wanted was a more comprehensive look at my body, I knew my doctors would definitely say no. That’s when I found Prenuvo! And let me tell you, it was great! The process was so easy – I even got to watch The Other Guys with Will Ferrell while getting my MRI done. And just a couple of days later, I got my results giving me an in-depth look at all the organs in my body.

I was able to take this info to my doctors and take any necessary action, whether it was preventative or otherwise. It really helped me make informed decisions about my health, and I can’t recommend Prenuvo enough. Seriously, everyone should check it out!

05. Castor Oil Pack

“Queen of the Thrones is a brand that offers a modern take on the traditional castor oil pack. Their castor oil pack kit includes a high-quality organic cotton compress, a bottle of premium castor oil, and an instruction booklet. The compress is designed to fit comfortably on the abdomen or other areas of the body where it can provide relief and healing.”

The Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Pack is such an easy way to help improve and take care of your health! Unlike those DIY packs that leave you feeling like a hot mess, this pack is so easy to use that it makes you wonder why you didn’t try it sooner! With all the research backing up the benefits of castor oil packs – like supporting liver function, reducing inflammation, and aiding digestion – this is one self-care habit you won’t want to skip.

I use it every night to help me unwind and get ready for bed. And let me tell you, it works like a charm. Plus, in the morning, all I have to do is take it off and hang it up – no messy cleanup required. It’s simple, it’s effective, and seriously so easy! So if you’re looking for an easy way to take care of yourself, give the Queen of the Thrones Castor Oil Pack a try. Trust me, your body will thank you for it!
