Two of my all time favorite products are on sale! (I bought these for my 3 children who just went back to college. I make sure they’re healthy and it’s easy for them to succeed because everything they need is in a grab & go pack.) Go to and you'll need a sponsor. Use my name...Judith Sears or my number 933807-9 and they will give you my discount. Don't spend a mint at the health food store.
Super Nutrition, Super Easy Good health comes through nutrition; it’s what you put in your body that counts. With Super Trio, you can take good nutrition with you—in your purse, in your pocket, in the palm of your hand—wherever you go. Offering the basic nutrients your body needs for optimal function, Super Trio comes in 60 easy-to-carry cello-packs. Taken twice a day, it provides a full month’s supply of portable, powerful nutrition. Each pack contains one capsule each of Super Supplemental to support your daily vitamin and mineral needs, Super Omega-3 to satisfy your body’s vital need for essential fatty acids, and Super ORAC , an exclusive formulation found only in Super Trio that is packed with potent free radical quenching antioxidants.

I can’t say enough about the benefits of taking Joint Support. (I'm 50 and my joints in my thumbs hurt when I rotary cut or hand sew, unless I take joint support.) Because of our modern diet, we all have acidic blood…if you have acid in your joints, we call it arthritis, if you have it in your muscles, we call it fibromyalgia. Take care of that acid with daily Joint Support.

Benefits:• Provides nutrition to the joints and bones. Joint Support [Structural, Nervous] provides a host of nutrients beneficial to the structural system. Individual ingredients in this formula are traditionally used for the following: maintaining joint tissues, supporting the body during physical stress to joints, helping the body clear uric acid, promoting normal muscle health, supporting a balanced nervous system, promoting protein digestion, nourishing the nervous system and more.

I can't wait to share what I learn at my conference with you. Thanks again for all your kind comments. Live Well, Judi

I'm going to be out of town all next week at a Nature's Sunshine Conference, so may not post every day. This particular conference is centered around children's health. I am excited to learn all about the new products that are available for ADD, etc. as I have a husband and 5 children who need it all! I also hope to visit a couple of quilt stores while there...I'll take pictures. Thanks for all of your kind comments. It's fun to have so many new friends. Live Well, Judi

August Girl Gang Meeting

We had our Girl Gang meeting the first part of August and I have been wanting to post some of my pictures, but hadn't figured out how to put a photo on my new blog! The learning curve is keeping me 'stumped' on many things I am trying to do on here. Between Nedra, Kim and many of you offering helpful hints, I may get this figured out yet.
We have a wonderful Girl Gang group that meets monthly. I am a 'wanna be' in the sense that I just watch and stare and drool over all the beautiful show and tells and all the applique that people bring as they complete their projects. Me...I just have good intentions paving the way to you know where...certainly not to my sewing room to accomplish something! Anyway, we have a wonderful friend who was asked to come and show us some of her applique. Her name is Paula M. and she is always willing to share, teach, coach, and babysit anyone who wants to learn to applique. (she's already baby sat me once and I need a refresher course!)
Here are a few of the photos of her work...

This is a start of a quilt that Paula is 'journaling' about her life. It shows where here church was and school, etc. from her childhood. It is currently a 'flimsy' as it's in the works, but the photo doesn't do it justice.

I wanted you to see the border on this one. Paula is gifted with color and fabric choices and I love everything she does.

Another flimsy, but so darling!

When I grow up, I want to do scallops!

I wanted to show you the border on this one too.

I'll try and do a better job with photos in the future. I can see where I would have taken different shots if I knew I would be a future blogger. I also realize I need to lower the pixel count on my camera as this took forever to load tonight. But I hope you get the idea of what fun quilters we have at our meetings. Live Well. Judi

Adrenal Fatique

I get asked almost daily about adrenal exhaustion. (An easy way to tell if your adrenals are struggling, may be that you have developed a 'tire' around the middle. Another common symptom is waking up about 3 a.m. every day and not being able to fall back to sleep. Often, you feel more tired when you wake up, then when you went to bed! If this sounds like you, try changing your diet.) I became an expert when at 49 I was tired all the time and was developing quite a bit of belly fat. At 50, I am recovering and doing wonderfully. I'll talk about some supplements to add to your diet on another blog. There are some great books out there to teach you how to recover. But if you need some suggestions on how to eat to recover...these ideas come from Dr. James Wilson.

Your food intake will help you recover from adrenal fatigue. You will do best combining fat, protein and starchy carbohydrates (such as whole grains) at every meal and at every snack.

● Eat a wide variety of whole, natural foods
● Combine a fat, protein and carbohydrate source with every meal
● Eat lots of vegetables, especially the brightly colored ones
● Salt your food to a pleasant taste
● Eat mainly whole grains as starchy carbohydrate sources
● Combine grains with beans, seeds or nuts to form a complete protein
● Avoid fruit in the morning
● Cook with butter, palm oil, coconut butter, peanut oil, sesame oil or olive oil
● Mix 1-2 tablespoons of essential oils into grains, vegetables and meats daily
● Eat high quality food; it becomes you
● Chew every bit at least 30 times

Live Well...Judi

Stress Buster for the Spine

I tried to post a little earlier, but found that I don't know how to add a picture from a file on my desktop. I need someone to explain it to me.

However, I did want you to share with you an idea I learned the other day about how to release the tension from sewing all day or sitting in the same position. Sometimes I'm so stiff after sewing or rotary cutting, I can hardly move. This works! (all products are available from Nature's have my discount shown in yesterday's blog.)

Layer on back:
1 layer of capsicum extract
1 layer of tei fu
1 layer of lobelia
Put a hot wet towel over the top for 15-30 minutes. You may find your back is completely aligned when you’re through!

Exposure to X-Ray/Radiation

I have a good friend who spent time in the hospital recently for pneumonia and had a series of x-rays. She has been working on her immune system ever since. I thought I'd share with you a great recipe to release x-ray exposure from the body. Buy kelp in bulk at a good health food store and dump 1 cup of it into a hot bath. Soak for 18 minutes once a week for a month. So whether you've had a mammogram, CAT scan, dental x-rays, traveled this summer and gone thru the airport or anything else...have a good soak and pull it out of your system. Be sure and sink down in the tub enough to cover your thyroid and include the back of your head if you've had dental x-rays. I also recommend some vitamin E with selenium. Here are some reported benefits...(one not listed is that it can help detoxify the body of x-ray exposure)

•Protects against free radicals.•Supports the circulatory and reproductive systems, as well as the liver.•Maintains normal-range blood viscosity.•Supports glandular health.•Promotes healthy-looking skin.•Helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range. Vitamin E Complete with Selenium [Vital Nutrition, Circulatory] offers the cardio-protective and antioxidant benefits of vitamin E and the glandular and cellular benefits of the trace mineral selenium in a complete vitamin E formulation. This antioxidant formula may destroy free radicals before they can damage cells. Tocopherols and tocotrienols are two families of active compounds that we know as vitamin E. Many vitamin E products on the market contain only one or two of these compounds. This product contains all eight! The delta tocotrienol has been the subject of much research for maintaining cholesterol levels within the normal range and for supporting arterial health. Tocotrienols have also been studied for their support of the immune system. Each softgel provides 400 IU natural vitamin E (from soy), including 30 mg tocopherols (alpha, beta, delta and gamma) plus 5 mg mixed tocotrienols (alpha, beta, delta and gamma), and 25 mcg selenium in a base of annato/soybean oil.Adults: Take 1 softgel daily with a meal.

The above statement comes from Nature's favorite herbal company. I am not interested in running a retail store front, therefore, I am offering you my discount and account number to get all of your products for the same 35% I get my products at. Just go to and when it asks for a sponsor name (you must have one), just put in my name Judith Sears or use my number #933807-9. If you order $40 on your first order, you do not have to pay anything to sign up. It's a great blessing in my life and I hope to make it a blessing in yours as well.

I hope to share lots of fun things with you on how to Live Well. Whether it's thru yoga, quilting, laughing with your family, health and diet. Look forward to great recipes as I love to cook nutritious food and share it with others.
