My Own Experience And Reviews About Refluxamine

I was finally forced to visit my family doctor in the latter part of 2006 due to the increasing attacks of acid reflux, especially during the night. Acid reflux is where the stomach acid comes back up the esophagus and into the mouth, causing a burning sensation in the throat. The condition reached a stage where I was taking antacid tablets up to five times a night.

I have had acid reflux for several years now and medically managing it with Prilosec. Over the past several months I had been noticing that the reflux was becoming worse so I added Pepcid AC at night and more recently doubled my dose of Prilosec as I was having obvious symptoms of esophagitis. My family doctor also put me on lansoprazole, a proton pump inhibitor. After a month it stopped the acid reflux. I thought I was cured. But three weeks after finishing the course of tablets, the reflux returned and I started to suffer heartburn, which I had never experienced before. Also my whole digestive system started to slow down, and I became constipated. My colon remains sensitive to this day. Then I go back to my family doctor, he suggested Refluxamine, a natural acid reflux relief. I started Refluxamine about few weeks ago and while I am still taking all my antacid meds, my esophagitis symptoms are now gone, as well as the side effect of antacid and lansoprazole. I am continuing on Refluxamine now. It sure would be great if I could gradually wean off all the antacids like Prilosec and Pepcid AC.

One thing I like about Refluxamine is that it only took a few days to see a positive result of starting on the product. Also, since Refluxamine is made with all-natural ingredients and no harmful steroids, fillers, or chemicals, it is pretty safe to take on a regular basis, according to my physician. As first I am afraid my blood pressure will rise since Refluxamine contains Licorice, but my physician assured that it will not affect my blood pressure to abnormal level.

Start From Scratch Or Use Website Platforms

When starting a website, you will have two choices. You can use ready-made platforms like Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress or you can start from scratch. Don’t worry about making the wrong choice as each option has its own advantages. The best thing you can do therefore is to study each option so that you can decide which road to take.

Let us look first at the advantages of platforms like WordPress. WordPress is a blogging platform but with a few tweaks and the right theme, it can be used as a reliable and adaptable content management system. The obvious advantage is that the turnaround time is faster from start to finish. You do not need a team of programmers working around the clock to finish the site in a few weeks time.

Another clear advantage of this is that since some robust yet easy to use platforms are free, you do not need a huge financial investment in developing the website. The number of people using the same platform also makes it easy to find answers to problems you or your web designer might come across during the web development process.

That said, this option is recommended for people who want simple websites or those who want to save on the cost of developing a website. The fact that solutions to problems can easily be found online means that even people with next to zero background on web development can tackle a simple project.

On the other hand, starting from scratch means total control on what the finished product would look and feel like. Although website platforms can be easily edited, the process can be time-consuming especially if you want a completely different look.

Starting from scratch means more costs though. For big businesses, it might not be much of a problem. The flexibility that starting from scratch could be enough to offset the costs involved. One advantage of starting from scratch is that you can easily set the layout that you want for your website without worrying about being limited by the pre-loaded layout.

Once you have carefully studied the options open to you, you can make an informed decision. There are a lot of things riding on your decision. The way the website is built and how it looks can make or break your business so making sure that your first step is a wise one is one of the keys to achieving success with your website.

Post Divorce Holiday Parenting Tips

The holiday season is officially upon us, and while this can be an exciting and magical time of year, it can also be a stressful time, especially for parents who have recently gone through a divorce.

Most parents struggle the first few holiday seasons after a divorce or separation occurs as they get used to new schedules and holiday traditions. It can also be very difficult to spend the holidays away from your children. This is especially true around Christmas time.

However, it is important to remember who the holidays are really about: your kids. An article from the Huffington Post recently provided some good tips on how to put the children first and manage parenting time during the holidays and holiday season. A link to this article is posted at the end of this article for you to read.

First, the article said to make sure that the children remain the No. 1 priority. It can be easy to get caught up in your own emotions, wants and needs, but putting the children first means allowing them to spend time with family on both sides of the family and keeping them out of any parenting disputes.

Second, if there is any confusion over who should have the children when, consult your divorce decree. Chances are that the decree provides specific instructions as to what was determined to be in the children’s best interests for dividing holiday time. If you forsee or experience problems it would be wise to talk to your Orlando family or Orlando divorce attorney about your concerns.

Next, it’s smart to start planning out a holiday parenting schedule ahead of time. in advance. With Christmas just a few weeks away, now is the time to establish a holiday parents schedule if you haven’t already done so. Then make sure to let your children and family know what the holiday plans are so that they can feel prepared.

Finally, don’t make the holidays about competing with your ex husband or ex wife. Divorced parents have a tendency to want to “out do” the other parent during the holidays by buying more presents or celebrating more extravagantly, but it’s never a good idea to try to buy your children’s love in any situation including upcoming holidays.

These are great tips for divorced parents to keep in mind over the holiday season. Even though this can be a tough transition in the beginning, rest assured that it will get easier over time after you have created new traditions and memories.

Instant NLP Help for Slow Reading

The student said:

“I’m a first year college student and I often struggle with slow reading. I started reading when I was 4 and always loved it. I started to become more affected by the speed at which I read when I was in the 4th grade. I read really slowly, but I comprehended everything I read. Going through middle school I started figuring out how my brain processed stuff. I do really well with memorizing things because I picture them in my mind. Colors and shapes come to mind for every word, date, or number I confront. Then when I go to recall the thing, it’s a color sequence, not an actual word. This, I realized, was the cause for my slow reading. I had to read every word and turn it into a color/shape. Now I’m in college and my professors have little sympathy for slow reading. I struggle a lot because the only way I can memorize things is by picturing them, converting them, and processing the information, but by the time I do that I’m way behind. I want to know if there’s something wrong with me, or if it’s just how I learn best. Is there anything I can do to convert things faster or some way I can make the synapses more efficient?”

And I advised her:

What can you do to convert things faster? You must use your visualisation to see words as pictures = words instead of colors or shapes [which will, no wonder, slow you down!].

Start with seeing shapes as you normally do. This is familiar and you’re good at it.

Now start teaching yourself to see the shapes of words = what they look like when written.

To do this you must observe a lot and carefully. Observe what letters and then words look like. Start with simple 3-letter words like cat, dog, fox, bed, pen, etc. Write each word on a separate A4 blank paper, put the paper in front of your face at or slightly above your eye level, and look at the written word for 15 seconds. Then close your eyes. Do you see the word? Or has it quickly faded? Or do you see something else? If you see the word, how do you see it? Are the letters big enough to see them comfortably but not so big that you don’t see the whole word? Are they on a background of a contrasting color? Are they in upper case or lower case? And if you tried seeing the letters in the other case, would that be less or more comfortable? Experiment with this.

Can you spell the word forwards and backwards while seeing it? If you can, you definitely see the word, which is important!

Is there something actually wrong with you? Yes! You have developed the wrong habit of visualising for seeing words. For seeing words you need to see words. Seeing shapes or colors is the wrong tool for this job. This is the only thing that’s wrong with you. Absolutely nothing else. And you can change the ways your brain works! Being present in the moment and really conscientious in working with yourself is the only way forward. Once you start seeing words as words instead of as colors or shapes, your reading speed will rapidly improve! Fast readers recognize whole words as blocks at the back of their brains, not letter by letter. Slow readers read slowly, because if they can see letters at all, they look at them letter by letter. You need to see whole words and once you get good at this with practice, your brain will automatically send them to its back part.

Your fantastic memory is another superb asset that you can use here. Photographic memory is the best type of memory one can have – especially for seeing words! So when you write a word on a blank A4 paper, take it up to your eye level, look at it, take a picture of that word in your imagination. Teach yourself to see the word as if it was a photo in your head. When you see the word as a photo, you see it as a block which I mentioned above.

Practice. All these exercises here are to be done only initially until seeing words as blocks becomes automatic for you. Once it does, you’ll be reading so fast anyway that you won’t have time for all this. This will get you started on the right track – teach the brain a new way of thinking.

And remember these tips:

Always hold any page you’re reading in front of your face at or slightly above your eye level. That’s where your visual field is. Never hold your reading material in your lap so that you have to be looking down to read it! Never! Because there you’d be in your feelings which is the wrong tool for a visual job as is reading!

Whenever you read, sit with your both feet firmly on the ground. This will give you grounding and extra sense of calm, safety, and security.

When reading, do your best not to subvocalize, i.e. not to pronounce the words in your head. This would also slow you down. If you don’t do it, great. If you do, gradually teach yourself not to do it.

Is Installing My Own Gas Boiler Illegal?

This is a question that gets asked many time, and the simple answer is YES, it is illegal to install your own gas boiler.

I understand it’s your property and you should be able to do whatever you want. I even understand that you want to keep the costs down and cut out the professional Gas Safe installer and carry out the work yourself.

The legal requirements for fitting any form of gas appliance is that it can only be carried out by someone that is Gas Safe Registered and qualified for that particular appliance.

Every gas safe engineer is issued with a gas safe identity card that displays a picture of the person in question, he will also have a unique licence number.

On the front of the card will be the gas safe number and expiry date. Turn the card over and you will see what the engineer is qualified to work on, this also include the gas type, natural or LPG Gas.

Fitting your own gas boiler is not as simple as it sounds, there are many things that have to be checked out first. The gas supply may need to be updated to a larger size.

If your old boiler is over 10 years old then there is a good chance the gas supply has been run in 15m pipe, most new boiler now require a gas supply run in 22 m pipe to within 1 meter of the boiler.

Can the new boiler be fitted in the same location as the old one?

The condensing gas boilers have to be installed to current regulations, and the old boiler location may not conform to the current regulations, and so on.

Don’t forget gas is dangerous in the wrong hands.

All Gas safe engineers have to re-sit all their gas exams every 5 years to be able to carrying on working with gas.

A boiler that has been installed incorrectly can be life threatening, the flue if not connected correctly can leak carbon monoxide, which you cannot smell or see.

Carbon monoxide poisoning affects over 240 people and results in around 60 deaths every year in the United Kingdom.

All new gas boilers have to be installed to current Gas and Building regulations and have to be registered with the local authorities. This is a legal requirement.

Your new boiler may come with a long warranty, but if you install it yourself, the warranty may become void.

Each boiler is supplied with a benchmark book that has to be filled in by the engineer, it has to be signed and dated. Without these details most boiler manufactures will void the warranty should you ever need to call them in.

Don’t be fooled into thinking you can watch videos on YouTube, yes there are many to choose, on how to install your boiler the correct way, and once you have completed all the work, call in a gas safe engineer to sign it off.

It is illegal to sign off any form of DIY gas work.

Installing your own gas boiler is not as cost saving as you may think. Be safe and use a professional.
