The Total Protection Package by ImmunizeLABS Review

The Total Protection Package by ImmunizeLABS Review

“I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “

Before I was selected ImmunizeLABS had several questions for me about my health, what were my illnesses, what were my symptoms before I was selected to try the product.  I think that this in itself is a reason to trust in this company.  They didn’t want me trying a product that was not right for me.  ImmuizeLABS started out of trying to figure out what was wrong with Christine.  Like a lot of us, Christine had been diagnosed with  CFS/ME (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / Myalgic Encephalomyelitis).  Her Husband Pascal set out to find a way to cure Christine and how their products were developed and you can read their story here: https://immunizelabs.com/pages/about-us

 

Our health is the most precious gift we have and is our responsibility. The best way to avoid doctors, hospitals, drugs and all the side effects is to keep from getting sick in the first place. @immunizeLABS Click To Tweet

 

Once I was accepted, I was sent my sample package very quickly.  The bottles were packaged very well and all arrived safe and intact to me.  I received Kit 2 The Total Protection package, which included two bottles of Pain Relief, one bottle of Boost and Shield.  This is a 30-day supply.  The bottles did not need refrigeration.

 

Total protection that includes:

  • pain and inflammation prevention
  • immune system boosting to fight infections and recover faster
  • cellular boosting for disease resistance and added energy
  • 1 Month supply of Pain and Inflammation protection (2 Bottles)
  • 1 Month supply of Shield immune boosting protection
  • 1 Month supply of Boost cellular health boosting protection
  • $30 discount
  • Free shipping
  • $250

I had been ill in that I was very nauseous as with most days of my illness so I waited to start taking the regimen.  The instructions were simple, take two tablespoons of Pain Relief and a tablespoon of Boost and Shield first thing in the morning with 4 ozs of water.  (Somehow I missed that I could take it with apple juice)  To start you only need to take a teaspoon and build up to the recommended dose over the first week.  The smell of Pain Relief turned my stomach more than it usually is in the morning.  I had to take just the Boost and Shield together.  None of the products I tried needed to be refrigerated and that is pretty awesome in a product that has no added sugar, no artificial ingredients, no GMO’s, no soy, no dairy, no nuts and the only added natural flavours are organic cocoa, stevia, cinnamon oil, and ginger oil.

Did it work?  I really can’t say.  I’ve been taking Boost and Shield and I haven’t gotten whatever the nasty bug is that my family has been plagued with.  I have lupus and I catch everything and anything I catch can cause complications.  Did I not catch it because I’ve been supplementing with Boost and Shield?  I hope so.  Two of the three people in my home other than me have had to go get antibiotics for whatever the bug is they have.

If ImmunizeLABS could come up with a caplet form of the formulas then I would be able to take all the formulas.  I think that once there are other flavours, as mine was chocolate, their products will appeal to wider range of people. As someone who has taken way too many prescription medications in my lifetime, a chance to try something that is natural and good for my body instead of synthetic and chemicals is an honor to try.

If you are interested in trying any of ImmunizeLABS products yourself, please check them out and KRISTIN10 will get you a 10% discount on any purchase until June 1st, 2017.  Also, shipping is free on orders over $200.

PillDrill a Fun New Medication Management System

“I have been given this product as part of a product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this review remain my own and I was in no way influenced by the company. “

 

PillDrill a Fun New Medication Management System

Opening the Box

I was never so excited to receive an acceptance from a campaign because I really really wanted to try the PillDrill.  It arrived very quickly from the time I was approved.  Due to illness, which is why a lot of my blog is about Chronic Invisible Illness, I didn’t pick up my mail for a few weeks.

It was really easy to set up. Even my mom could set it up for herself if she wanted to.  I knew where I wanted to put the device portion and I had to clean up my nightstand in order to do so.  Nightstands and illness can be a dumping ground! Instead of plugging it into an outlet, I plugged it into my USB hub that has four ports in it.  Even with an iPhone, iPad, Fitbit all plugged in, the Pill Drill did not overload the hub.  The instructions said to let it charge for a couple hours so I left it alone and then set it up later in the day.

Basic set up was EASY!  My mom is very technologically terrified and I know she could set it up. (Yes mom, you could!)  I downloaded the Pill Drill App to my iPhone.  It’s available for Android too.  I’ve just checked and you can download the app on your iPad as well.  I like to think I’m tech savvy and it was a breeze.

Top: on my nightstand, Bottom Left: My previous mess of medications, Bottom Right: All organized for the week and all my morning pills showing in the pod
I was worried that all my pills wouldn't fit into the pods but they do! Click To Tweet

 

I was worried that all my pills wouldn’t fit into the pods but they do!  I take 12-15 in one full swoop first thing in the morning.  I didn’t put my nausea medications into the pods because I tend to take them earlier than my other medications most days.  I only used the one strip for a couple weeks and now I’m using one for the morning and one for bedtime.  I also have an alert set up for my bedtime medication more on that in a bit.

 

Compatible with any type of health regimen.

Keep your medication in its original packaging? Our scanning tags attach to pill bottles and irregularly shaped items alike. Use a weekly pill organizer? Ours was custom-built for superior ergonomics and compatibility.  There is no one size fits all with medication, so whatever the specifics of your regimen PillDrill has you covered.                                                                                source:  PillDrill

 

There are a few things I’d like to see changed or upgraded somehow:

  • The light – there is no way to dim it completely
  • The Sound the unit makes to give you notifications – it gave me bad hospital memories.  I’d like to be able to change it somehow.  One of my two dogs absolutely went nuts at the sound, the other it didn’t bother her.
  • I think that the unit could be a bit smaller.
  • A way to keep the strips together for travel.

What I loved:

  • Ease of use, unit, the app, the strips and pods.
  • The mood cube is seriously the best and a fun way to track your moods, how you’re feeling
  • The color is my favorite blue
  • The notifications on the app via my iPhone was perfect.

What I didn’t use:

  • the scanning tags and holders

Overall I loved the PillDrill and will keep on using it.  Its price is steep but with all inventions, you can hope if comes down. I didn’t travel anywhere so I don’t know how the strips and pods would fair in my hectic packing.  I happened to be at the hospital getting some tests done and my app let me know I needed my pills and I was able to pause them until I got home.  I can only think of what my poor dog Ranger was doing because he hated it and would let me know the second that it went off to turn it off.

I hope you enjoyed my review of The PillDrill.

The Superior Six

1. Sichuan Teasel Root (Dipsacus asperoides):    In China, Sichuan is named Xu Duan and translates to, restore what is broken. The sichuan teasel root has been used historically to tonify the liver and kidneys, promote blood circulation, and strengthen the bones and tendons.

2. Dang Shen Root:    The dang shen root is a traditional Qi tonic and is notorious for offering the numerous therapeutic benefits ginseng offers. It is widely known for its energy, mood enhancing, and restorative support. When combined with astragalus, dang shen root is called The King of Combinations.

3. Astragalus Root (Astragalus membranaceus):  In Chinese, Huangi Qi translates to Yellow Leader. This is due the yellow color of the root and it also being considered the leader of tonic herbs in traditional chinese medicine.

However, this chemical composition may change according to the plant source and season; hence, quality sourcing of propolis is important

Honey Colony Superior CBD Oil review from mini2z for Chronic Illness Bloggers
Label of Superior CBD from Honey Colony

 

I received this a few weeks ago and I read it as to take the drops altogether so I decided bedtime was best for me.  I learned later that I could take it three times a day as four drops three times a day.  The first night, oh my, it is a weird taste.  You need to leave it under your tongue for the best effectiveness.  As the nights progressed, I was able to take the drops with no issue with the taste.  As I’m writing, I am realizing that my night time pain has decreased since I’ve been using the Honey Colony.  I’ve been getting a searing pain in my back and hips and I can honestly say that the CBD Oil has helped my pain.  It’s natural, made with Non-GMO, certified organic botanicals
Soil used to grow cannabis is free of pesticides, herbicides, or artificial fertilizers.  At this point in my illness and health, I’m trying to keep food as natural and healthy.

CONS:

  • the label is so tiny writing that even with my glasses off I have a hard time reading it.
  • The taste but you can actually get used to it.  Although, my daughter has left the room twice when I took it because it was, “oh my god you’re going to oh my put that in your mouth?”  Yeah, teen girls are a wee bet dramatic.
  • It is only available in the US (all 50 states), Germany, Italy, Spain, Israel, Australia and the UK.  You need to check that you’re able to get it shipped to you!
  • Price:  It’s $92.55 for a single bottle and a 3-pack is $262.65 which is currently a sale price.
  • CBD and Drug Tests:  Unfortunately, it is possible for CBD to result in a positive for THC— much like eating a poppy seed bagel can cause a positive for opiates depending on the type of test. Our products contain .03% THC, well below the federal limit of .3%, but you should use discretion if planning to be tested.  Sourced from Honey Colony

PROS:

  • It’s completely botanical
  • Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from the Cannabis plant and has no euphoric properties whatsoever.  It does NOT make you HIGH or funny feeling.  From Honey Colony:  Due to our CBD containing .03% THC, the legal amount of THC and only the potent health support without the psychoactive effects.
  • It has a shelf life of 2-3 years and no refrigeration needed!
  • It’s not an OIL but instead it’s the only water soluble CBD in the market currently.
  • The. Superior Six: Sichuan Teasel Root, Dang Shen Root, Astragalus Root, White Peony / Bai Shao Yao root, Propolis,
    Bitter Orange Pee they all have SO many ingredients that are great for your health!

I actually find that for me the benefits outweigh the cons because ANYTHING that helps my searing pain due to my lupus SLE and fibromyalgia is just AMAZING in my book!
