Omron Avail TENS review | Wireless & easy to use!

Disclaimer: This Omron Avail wireless TENS review is sponsored by Omron Healthcare. Although this review is sponsored, all opinions are my own and were in no way influenced by the company. This post contains affiliate links.  Many of my fellow chronic pain sufferers use TENS units to relieve localized pain. I've never been a big fan of TENS because most of them come with a jumble of wires and electrodes that constantly become tangled like Christmas lights. I also don't like the feeling of being tied (i.e. wired) to a device. Omron's new Avail TENS unit solves both of those issues because … [Read more...]

ActiPatch review | Advanced 24-hour pain relief + free offer

I was given a 7-day trial device and a 720-hour device to use for this ActiPatch review. Although I was given these products for free, all opinions are my own and were not in any way influenced by ActiPatch USA.  Like most of you, I've been living with chronic bodywide pain for years. I thought I'd felt most every kind of pain there is until I developed a herniated disc last summer. Let me just say severe back pain is a whole different level of misery! When the herniated disc first made its presence known, I was couch- and bed-bound for a few days. At one point, I was literally … [Read more...]

Resonant Botanicals review | Invigorate and Qi of Calm lotions

Resonant Botanicals gifted me bottles of Invigorate and Qi of Calm as part of this product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the products were a gift, all opinions in this Resonant Botanicals review are my own, and I was in no way influenced by the company. This post contains affiliate links.  A few months ago, Michael Yocco from The Fay Farm announced he was starting his own company, Resonant Botanicals, and invited me to try his newly formulated lotions, Invigorate and Qi of Calm. As I've written before, I've never met a topical pain reliever that I didn't … [Read more...]

This is a guest post by Andrea Wool, creator of Autoimmune Strong, an online fitness program for people with autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, chronic Lyme and other types of chronic pain. This article contains affiliate links.  We all know exercise is good for us. I haven’t yet met anybody who would refute that point. Especially doctors. When you go for your yearly checkup, they always remind you to exercise, right? However, exercise can be too much for people struggling with autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease and other chronic pain or chronic fatigue disorders. I know … [Read more...]

Thync review | Using neurostimulation to improve sleep & mood

I was given a Thync device as part of this product review through the Chronic Illness Bloggers network. Although the product was a gift, all opinions in this Thync review remain my own, and I was in no way influenced by the company.  I am not someone who always has to have the latest cell phone or smartwatch, but I do admit I have a fascination for gadgets that promote better health. I really like the idea of easy-to-use tools that are drug free without side effects. That's why I was excited to have the opportunity to try out Thync Relax Pro, a device that uses neurostimulation to promote … [Read more...]

30 low-cost fibromyalgia and chronic Lyme treatments

This article on low-cost treatments for fibromyalgia and chronic Lyme was originally published on NationalPainReport.com. It is being reprinted here with permission from the editor.  Chronic illness can be a huge financial drain. As someone who is living with fibromyalgia and chronic Lyme, most of the money I make from working part time is spent on my treatment. I hand over hundreds of dollars every month for the cleanest, healthiest food I can find. I spend way too much money on supplements just so I can function. And then, there are the doctor's appointments (which cost hundreds of … [Read more...]

Fibro warrior develops exercise program just for us!

This article about Autoimmune Strong was originally published on NationalPainReport.com. It is being republished here with permission from the editor. This post contains an affiliate link.  Exercise is a sore subject (literally!) in the fibromyalgia and Lyme communities. That's why I've avoided writing about it for so long. I know a lot of you will agree with me when I say I'm sick of hearing doctors and researchers tell me that I'll feel better if I just exercise. But I also know, based on the current research, they're probably right. The problem is when we're struggling to get the … [Read more...]

Using a weighted blanket for fibromyalgia

This article on using a weighted blanket for fibromyalgia was originally published on NationalPainReport.com. It is being republished here with permission from the editor.  Growing up in a drafty farmhouse, my mom would always add an extra blanket or two to my bed during winter. I remember feeling comforted by the weight of the blankets as I drifted off to sleep. Turns out, there's a physiological reason for why I felt so calm and secure under those blankets. The added weight caused my body to release serotonin, a feel-good hormone that promotes peace and well-being. As adults, we … [Read more...]
