  1. THE BASICS WALLET
    SHIPPED ANYWHERE AROUND THE WORLD

I love the look of these practical wallets. I have a similar type wallet for my cards but it is deteriorating fast with use because it is plastic.  This is a simple system, good material, and compact. It allows you to avail yourself to the cards you use most each day and store the rest in another compartment so that you are not fumbling though heaps of cards to find the one you want.

I think it’s a great practical gift idea. Something different and of good use.

The video below is an example of how the wallet works.

You can buy these for $19.99

Herbs and spices I am always looking for, also good quality aromatherapy oils and gadgets plus good quality green tea and I have found this company ideal.
At this stage they don’t have gift packaging but you can do that yourself. If you have someone who likes these sorts of products then they will make excellent gifts and quality ones from this company.

Enjoy.

Natural Alternative For Inflammation – Turmeric

Tumeric to combat inflammation
Millions take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) daily for arthritis and related inflammatory conditions, but are completely unaware that far safer, and at least as effective, natural alternatives already exist—and are as easily accessible and inexpensive as the spices found in your kitchen cupboard.
Human research on the health benefits of turmeric is sparse, mainly due to the lack of capital available to fund expensive clinical trials. Despite many decades of investigation as a lead drug compound, and the availability of thousands of preclinical studies indicating turmeric’s therapeutic value, few yet realize that this common kitchen spice may provide a suitable drug alternative for common health conditions.
The latest human study to clinically confirm turmeric’s medicinal value was published in the Indonesian Journal of Internal Medicine in April, 2012 and found the curcuminoid extract of turmeric was able to reduce inflammation in patients suffering from knee osteoarthritis.
