Learn About Investing In Cryptocurrency

Not long ago, I attended a huge cryptocurrency investing seminar. I noticed that the biggest percentage of attendees were men. I wondered why so few on the female side and I wrote a post about why women should also consider investing in cryptocurrency.

As I studied the situation closer, I realized that we women, on average, are usually more cautious than men when it comes to money. But in retrospect, I must tell you that without risk, there is little gain. Sure, we can take our savings and put them in a savings account to make crappy interest rates that may get us a cup of coffee.

I don’t know about you, but I would rather take a little more risk and make a lot more money.

I believe cryptocurrency may be the answer

So in talking with other females, I have discovered that many would like to invest in the cryptocurrency phenomenon, but they just do not know how to.

I have decided to give some information that can help you decide if cryptocurrency investing would be the right move for you.

What cryptocurrencies should you invest in?

You may be familiar with some of the main cryptocurrencies. There is:

  • Bitcoin
  • Ethereum
  • Ripple
  • Litecoin
  • Dash

But did you know, there are many, many others?

I am by no means a financial adviser, so I will not tell you which ones you should purchase. But you can go to Coin Market Cap and view all the cryptocurrencies in the world. You can see the current price, supply in circulation, 24 hour volume and percentages of rise or fall.

Now if you find one you are interested in, you will want to ask Google where you can buy it. I can lead you to a good place to purchase Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum and Litecoin, but you will have to search where you can buy others.

If you are interested in any of the above, you can buy them here at Coinbase.

Storing your cryptocurrency

What you need is a digital wallet to store your cryptocurrency. You can have either a hot wallet or a cold wallet. A hot wallet means it is connected to the internet and cold means it isn’t. The types of wallets are:

  • Desktop – They are downloaded and are on your computer. They can be accessed even if internet is not available.
  • Mobile – Similar to the desktop, these are for mobile devices.
  • Online wallets – These are wallets you can only get in with an internet connection. They are from 3rd parties and located “in the cloud.”
  • Paper – These are simply printed on paper and stored wherever you like, preferably, a safe.
  • And Hardware – A small device similar to a USB.

This link tells some of the best wallets available. Some wallets are expensive while others are free.

My recommendation is the online wallet Coinpayments. You can store over 75 different currencies and manage them easily

What you can do with your cryptocurrency

You can buy, trade or just save. As time passes, more and more online and offline merchants are accepting cryptocurrency as a payment option.

And, if you have your own business, you can set up payment gateways where you accept cryptocurrency. As a matter of fact, the Coinpayments link I gave you above allows you to do that.

Keep records

I suggest that you keep records of your crypto purchases and you can watch if it is gaining or losing value.

But always keep in mind that there can be huge fluctuations in value. You do not want to get emotionally stressed or elated. I have watched Bitcoin go up more than $1,000 in one day. It has even dropped that much in 2 hours.

The best tip I can give you is to not invest more than you can lose.

I heard one speaker say, “The second biggest mistake you can make is investing so much into cryptocurrency that if it fails, you will have to file bankruptcy. But the biggest mistake is, not investing in cryptocurrency at all.”


I hope this helped you understand about investing in cryptocurrency.

Remember, I am still learning too, but I have money in on the digital blockchain because I believe it to be one of the best investments there is.

But, I have not put my eggs all in one basket. Cryptocurrency has had some crazy moments. Some experts say it will fail completely and others say it will go through the roof.

It is ultra important that you take time to learn and understand the risk. There are a huge supply of tokens available, but it can be super risky. Before investing, take a deep dive to understand the risk you are taking.

I would love to hear your thoughts.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to post below.

Thanks and keep on moving.

Bark Your Way To Good Health

Most of us love dogs. But can’t they be annoying when they are barking at a bird, squirrel or another dog who is 4 miles away?

Today, I want you to bark your way to good health.

Now get down on all 4’s and let out a healthy….

I’m just joking my friends!

But while you’re down there, do a few push-ups… LOL!

I felt like a play on words today, because you CAN bark your way to good health. But not a canine bark, I am talking about tree bark.

Tree Bark Has Been Used For Centuries As A Diet Staple

You can find many survivalist articles on edible tree bark. We are not talking about that hard outside bark, but what is called the cambium. It is the inner bark that is softer and feeds the tree with water and nutrients.

Nearly any bark can be harvested and eaten.

There are special techniques for harvesting bark and I recommend you check out the links below on how to do so.

  1. http://www.offthegridnews.com/extreme-survival/edible-tree-bark-the-ultimate-survival-food/
  2. https://www.outdoorlife.com/blogs/survivalist/2011/11/survival-foods-can-you-really-eat-tree-bark
  3. https://www.backdoorsurvival.com/guide-to-edible-bark-using-trees-for-medicine-food/

What I want to do today is tell you the benefits from 3 different barks you will find in many locations:

  1. Pine bark
  2. Wild cherry bark
  3. and Willow bark

By the time you finish reading this, I bet you will want to go get some bark.

Bark Your Way To Good Health: Pine Bark Benefits

tree bark

Many people have discovered amazing results with pine bark extract. And we can find pines nearly anywhere.

Pine bark extract is known to be a super antioxidant.

Check out these cool benefits:

#1: Lowers Glucose Levels

Diabetes is a huge issue in the world. In a Chinese Medical Research study, diabetic patients were given a branded pine bark extract and the results were phenomenal. It lowered glucose levels dramatically.

#2: Elevates Endurance

Research indicates that pine bark extract provides an increase in endurance performance of trained athletes. It does this by improving the time it takes the body to reach a fatigued state. Additionally, athletes have endured less cramping and muscle pain when using the extract.

#3: Fights Off Infections

The pine bark extract has significant “anti-pseudomonas activity,” making it a potential natural remedy and possible preventive measure for infections.

Bark Your Way To Good Health: Wild Cherry Tree Bark Benefits

Why did George Washington cut down that cherry tree? Was it for the bark?

#1: Respiratory Issues

Wild cherry bark has excellent natural expectorant qualities which means that the bark can help to loosen up phlegm or mucus from the respiratory system. It will help you breathe freely.

#2: Parasites

While science has not proven it, the bark is reputed to be antiviral, antibacterial and anthelmintic in nature meaning that it has the ability to destroy parasitic worms.

Say goodbye to ringworm and other nasty pests.

#3: Digestion Issues

Many mothers have given their children and husbands wild cherry bark tea to relieve diarrhea, bloating, gas and indigestion. It has great astringent properties.

Bark Your Way To Good Health: Willow Bark Benefits

Before I go into the wonderful benefits of the willow bark, I must say that you should use this in moderation. Willow bark has the same properties as aspirin and can cause serious problems if abused.

I suggest consulting a doctor before using.

#1: Prevents Heart Attacks

Doctors have prescribed low doses of aspirin to thin the blood allowing it to travel to the heart easier. As I stated, willow bark extract has the same effects which lowers the risk of heart attacks.

#2: Relieves Headaches

Just like aspirin, willow bark extract reduces the tension that can lead to headaches.

#3: Relieves Lower Back Pain

Willow bark could be a natural remedy for lower back pain, neck, and muscle aches. A 2001 study published in the journal Rheumatology found in a group of nearly 200 people with low back pain, those who received willow bark showed a significant improvement in pain compared to those who received a placebo.


So, are you ready to bark?

Yes, nature provides what we need when we need it.

Let’s hear your thoughts!

Spice Up Your Health! 7 Spices And Herbs You Should Be Ingesting

I firmly believe that nature provides everything we need to live healthy and fulfilling lives. But we as humans sometimes think we are smarter than nature.

Are we now?

We could travel to some remote villages in South America, Africa or other locations and find natives who are much healthier than we are.


Because the chemicals, toxins and other human “wisdom” has not yet reached them. They survive on what nature provides and are happy doing so. Spices and herbs make up a large percentage of their meals and their life spans, signs of aging and energy levels show us that their diets must be a huge part of their great health.

I am not telling you to run to the deep jungles of South America to live like the natives. But I am saying you can integrate some of their natural wisdom into your life…

Here are 7 spices and herbs you should ingest on a regular basis to spice up your health.

#1: Cinnamon

Cinnamon is a spice that has held value near to gold in days of old. It comes from the bark of a tree and holds a lot of medical benefits.

  • A powerful antioxidant
  • Fights inflammation
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • and has been shown to lower blood sugar

#2: Basil

This excellent herb comes from the mint family. Many cultures have used basil as a medicine and it is an excellent additive to various recipes. Scientists have been actively studying basil for potential anti-cancer properties. Benefits include:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antiviral
  • Osteoarthritis prevention
  • and aids in helping digestion issues.

#3: Cardamom

This sweet and pungent spice is made from seeds of plants in India and surrounding areas. It is often found in pumpkin cake and bread mixes.

Some believe cardamom can prevent the growth of cancer cells. It is known to relieve upset stomachs and other experts believe cardamom will battle inflammation and lower blood pressure.

#4: Tumeric

This is a plant in the ginger family. Tumeric contains curcumin which experts say is way more powerful than Vitamin C or E as an inflammatory.

You can get Tumeric in curry powder used to rub on meats and fish. Or you can get a Tumeric supplement. Here is a great one that you can try at 50% off.

#5: Rosemary

This woody herb has some amazing health qualities. It is often added to olive oil and is known to keep arteries free of gunk and junk. Rosemary is also well known to help people with nasal congestion or allergies.

Have a case of hay fever? Try some soup with rosemary.

#6: Chile Peppers

Chile peppers are chock full of capsaicin. This is what gives them their “kick.”

It has been shown that capsaicin actually increases the human metabolism which means burning more calories. Chile peppers can also decrease our hunger which can aid weight loss.

Chile peppers are also believed to help stop stomach ulcers by lowering the risk of infection.

Can’t take the heat of Chile peppers? Even the mild forms have amazing health qualities.

#7: Nutmeg

Often used in dessert recipes, nutmeg is made from the seeds of an evergreen tree. Nutmeg has excellent detoxification properties. It will rid the liver and kidneys of dangerous toxins.

Nutmeg is also well known to aid in sleep.


These are only 7 that immediately come to the top of the spicy health list, but there are many more. Consider these herbs and spices too:

  • Sage
  • Garlic
  • Cocoa
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • Ginger
  • Ginseng
  • Peppermint
  • and Cumin

Nature provides but we must be willing to accept. Start looking for recipes that call for these healthy spices and herbs.

I plan on doing some research of healthy cultures and some recipes they use that you may want to try.

Any suggestions from my readers would be great. You can do so in the comment area below.

6 Hacks To Get Your Weight On Track

weight loss hacks

Photo by Samuel Zeller on Unsplash

We here of individuals hacking so many different things…

  • Websites
  • Security systems
  • Cars
  • Traffic lights
  • and much more…

So doesn’t it make sense that we can hack diets and weight loss plans?

Let’s do just that!

Here are 6 hacks to get your weight at its optimum level.

Weight On Track Hacks #1: Make All Meals Romantic

All right, I’m not telling you to have another person you deeply care for at every single meal. That may be difficult to do. But I am saying that by eating in what is known as romantic conditions is an excellent weight loss hack.

Studies have shown that just turning down the lights and putting on some relaxing music has people eating on average, 175 less calories each meal they use this hack.

Weight On Track Hacks #2: Hang Out With Positive People

There is a common denominator between eating and negativeness. I can’t put my finger on it completely, but studies have shown that being around negative people adds inches to our waistline.

You know, maybe I can put my finger on it. Those negative people are always pointing fingers at the bad traits of people, so we automatically assume they are looking at our bad traits. We instinctively give them more negative material by eating more brownies, pizza and chips with dip.

But when we are around positive people who support us, we want to feel and look our best. So we subconsciously hack our mindset and lose weight.

Weight On Track Hacks #3: Follow The Order

royaltyHave you ever wondered why some members of Royalty seem to stay slim and trim?

I know… There have been some obese Kings and Queens, but for the biggest part, the majority are fit and trim.

But you see depictions of these people being served extravagant multi-course meals. That is where the hack lies; they are first served a big glass of water… Drinking that water fills the stomach some. Then comes the broth or soup. Again, not fattening and fills the stomach. Salad is next which loads them with nutrients.

By the time the main course comes, they are normally quite full and only eat a couple bites. And the servants eat the fattening stuff but because they are always on the go serving, they burn it off.

Yep, #3 is a hack made for Royalty and you are the King or Queen.

Weight On Track Hacks #4: Switch The Butter With Avocado

So many recipes call for butter. And we know butter is hard on those of us wanting to lose weight.

You will love this hack!

Anytime a recipe is calling for butter, mash an equal amount of avocado and use it instead. Avocado is lower in calories, tastes great and is heart friendly.

Avocado is high in good fat and has no carbs. Just the perfect system for healthy weight loss.

Weight On Track Hacks #5: Eat Slow

Humans always seem to be in a hurry. But being in a hurry to eat can be a trail to obesity. Slowing down and completely chewing your food will allow your brain to realize you are getting full.

When we eat fast, our brains do not catch on until we have overdone it.

Weight On Track Hacks #6: Coffee Or Tea Before Exercise

It has been shown that by drinking a caffeine drink like coffee or tea before exercising will help you burn more calories when you are not exercising.

It seems odd, but it works.

Cyclists would drink espresso before riding and the next day when they just stayed home watching the Tour-de-France, they would burn calories too.


While many hacks are associated with illegal things, these weight loss hacks are all perfectly legal.

Give them a go and watch your weight drop.

Be sure and subscribe to my blog as I will be giving you more hacks in the future.

And if you want to go further with your weight loss, I can help with various plans. Just contact me and we can have a discussion to see what you need most.

Thank you for dropping in and I wish you a great day!

Could HBOT Be An Answer


Photo by Alexandra Rose on Unsplash

It has been used for many years in 2 professions, but we are now questioning if HBOT may be an answer to multiple diseases and issues in the human body.

HBOT stands for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

The professions that have used this therapy are:

  • Deep sea divers
  • and Astronauts

The main problem HBOT solved was decompression illness. This is caused when the person comes up from deep distances with great pressure changes, or down from being outside the Earth’s atmosphere which also causes huge pressure changes in the human body.

But now, those who can afford to have used HBOT for their own or for their loved one’s general good.

I will explain further after I give you a basic synopsis of what HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) is.

What HBOT Is

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is the use of oxygen at an ambient pressure that is higher than atmospheric pressure. It is done with the use of a pressure chamber. The chamber can be made of a rigid or flexible material and oxygen at 100% is delivered to the patient.

HBOT is used to treat decompression illness and also, gas gangrene, carbon monoxide poisoning, and arterial gas embolism.

It is also approved to be used with:

  • Central retinal artery occlusion
  • Enhancement of healing in selected problem wounds (especially in diabetic illnesses)
  • Anemia
  • Idiopathic hearing loss
  • Radiation injury
  • Etc…

But many believe that HBOT can be used to treat many other conditions and diseases.

Other Conditions And Diseases That Are Being Considered For Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Some people have even traveled to other countries to get HBOT treatment for conditions, diseases and illnesses that medical authorities in the United States will not approve.

  • Migraines
  • Cancer
  • COPD
  • Cardiac Disease
  • High Fever
  • Etc…

You Can Now Get Portable Chambers

HBOT chambers have been developed for home use. But, the FDA has classified these as Class II medical devices and do require a prescription to purchase.

Could HBOT Be A Good Way To Treat Everyday Disorders?

I would really like to get other opinions and thoughts…

At the end of this post, I am going to share various sites of reference.


Risks That Are Possible With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Like anything, too much of a good thing can be bad. Or if not used properly, damage can be done.

But I ask, should the government have so much control?

Some of the issues that could arise with HBOT include:

  • Visual Refractive Changes – Normally just temporary
  • Cataract Maturation – There are theories that HBOT causes existing cataracts to mature faster
  • Claustrophobia
  • Hypoglycemia – Diabetic patients should eat before therapy
  • Barotrauma of the Ear – This is the most common issue with HBOT. Similar to flying and your ears feeling like there is water in them.
  • Sinus Squeeze – Can cause nosebleeds
  • Tooth Squeeze – This can be an issue with new dental work like fillings.
  • Pneumothorax or Pulmonary Barotrauma – There is belief that HBOT can damage lung tissue.
  • Oxygen Toxicity – Too much oxygen can actually be bad.

Like any procedures, there are potential complications and side effects. But if the person administering HBOT is trained and attentive, the risks can be held to a minimum.

My Thoughts

Personally, I believe small doses of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy could result in greatly improved health statuses for many people.

But there needs to be more:

  • Healthy eating
  • Exercise
  • Stress management
  • Etc…

I would love to hear from those who have had HBOT… Tell us your opinion.

Do you think HBOT would help some people who have diseases such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, etc?

I am of the opinion that we need to open our thoughts to the possibilities and allow those who wish to try the option without traveling to another country to do so.

So tell us your thoughts and share this with others so they can share their opinion.

Thank you and much love to you all.
