Those who suffer from tinnitus are all too familiar with the frustration and solitude the condition causes.

What to Do When Your Kid Gets Pink Eye

By Brett From ThisMamaLoves

This post about what to do when your kid gets pink eye is brought to you by our friends at The Relief Products through our participation in the Women’s Choice Award Blogger program. Opinions are my own. 

If you’re a parent, teacher, caregiver, coach, you know the fear of having pink eye in the house/classroom/camp etc. It’s one of the most contagious things and with kids touching their faces and everything around them all the time, there’s good reason. NO ONE wants to deal with pink eye. The good news? There’s 3 kinds of pink eye. Viral, bacterial and allergic.

I’ve had just a few instances of pink eye in my life, but the last time I had it was as an adult and it was a doozy. Holy cow. I took a nap, woke up, and I’ve never seen anything like it before or since. Hopefully I won’t again.  Apparently, I rubbed my eyes when I was sleeping and made things so much worse. I couldn’t even drive, it was so bad. And gross. Did I mention gross?

Thankfully, most kids don’t seem to get *that* bad, or we adults catch it sooner and it doesn’t get that bad. My lesson was learned, and fast. But, as a early childhood educator, child care worker, parent, and pink eye sufferer, I’ve learned what to do when your kid gets pink eye.

First: Don’t panic.

Really, no matter how tempting it is, panic helps no one. It’s gross and contagious, but it’s not likely to be the end of the world as you know it.

Second: Get them relief.

TRP’s PinkEye Relief® is something always on hand in my medicine cabinet. Pink eye and the like don’t seem to strike at convenient hours when the doctor’s office is open, amiright? At the first signs of pink eye we use this homeopathic medicine to offer relief from pink eye symptoms. It’ll help with redness and burning sensation, watering and swelling and that oh so lovely crusting and gritty feeling in those irritated eyes. Keep in mind that eye drops and ointments are NOT meant to be shared, so try to keep at least 2 on hand. Hopefully you’ll not need them, but chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re there.

PRO MOM TIP: Eye stuff is hard for most kids, so have them lay flat and close their eyes.  With clean hands, gently pull their lower lid down and squeeze the drops into the lower lid. When they close their eye again, it’ll help to spread the drops around.


The Relief Products brand has earned Women’s Choice Awards for several of their products for 3+ years and counting now- which means women are choosing this brand over and over again for themselves and for their families. Women just like me. I like knowing that other women choose a brand over another- don’t you? Enter for a chance to win a backpack full of school supplies and the best TRP products thru 9/30!

But especially, as a mom, I NEED to know what others are finding that works for their kids, especially with something that can be so uncomfortable and downright miserable as conjunctivitis. In 12+ years of parenting, I can count on one hand- actually- one finger- the times that my kids came home with or woke up with the telltale signs of pink eye AND the doctor’s office was still open. So I really have learned to keep some things on hand, and PinkEye Relief® is one of them!

Remember we talked about how much teens and tweens love their headphones and earbuds, especially on road trips earlier this summer, and how we like to have Ring Relief® packed in case they have the volume up high and kids have ringing in their ears? Same brand. Different product.  My oldest also gets styes frequently in her eyes, so she has a Stye Relief ® ointment she keeps in a cosmetic pouch in her backpack, and another in her drawer in her bathroom.

Lukewarm compresses. PRO MOM TIP: one time use!! Throw them into a hot washing machine after one use. Do not reuse! I grab my trusty bucket I use when there are stomach bugs in the house and keep soiled washcloths in there. They get a hot water run thru the machine and dried on high afterwards.

Third: Start cleaning.

Up first? Bedding. Especially pillowcases. Ideally, sheets and blankets, but if you only can do part, do the pillowcases. Toss them in a hot water wash with the washcloths. Stuffed animals that they cuddle with, too. Dolls can get a wipe down as well.

Now, if you can wash their backpack/school bag, toss it in the washing machine. If you can’t? Clean it by hand. Remember, kids touch all over their bags, and those bags touch bus seats and desks and chairs…

Next up? Hit the doorknobs and light switches in the house.

Fourth (and maybe most important) Wash your hands. Literally lather, rinse, repeat. EVERYONE in the house needs to do this.  Give the faucets a good cleaning, too.

Please note, if your child complains that they are having difficulty seeing, seek medical attention immediately. This post is meant to offer some advice and guidance for parents to have an idea what to do when your kid gets pink eye.

What are your tips for parents for what to do when your kid gets pink eye?

How Your Family Dog is Keeping You Healthy

For those of us who own dogs, we know the dirt and mess that comes along with it. Some of our dogs’ favorite pastimes include rolling around in the mud, swimming in a pond, and eating questionable food off the ground. According to an article recently published in the New York Times by Richard Schiffman, it may be our dog’s dirty habits that are helping us stay healthy.

Scientists have been increasing their focus and study on the “indoor microbiome.” This term refers to the bacteria, germs, fungi, and viruses that live among us in our homes. While this may sound like a problem, our exposure to these substances is beneficial in helping us fend off a variety of illnesses. Our immune systems rely on many of these substances to develop and function properly. If you are like me, you may have a slight obsession with keeping things clean and neat in your home. What most of us don’t know is how advantageous it is to have some of these substances present in our living space.

Humans spend approximately 90% of their lives indoors (especially young children), in what is considered “bacteria poor environments.” This can cause our body to over-react to non-harmful substances and make us sick. Some common examples of conditions developed from these circumstances are allergies and asthma. Having an allergy is simply your body attacking something it shouldn’t, due to lack of exposure. This exposure is especially important for children, specifically those in their first 3 months of life.

So what do dogs have to do with this? Well, if you are in need of bacteria and germs for your home, look no further than “man’s best friend”. Having a dog at home can raise the levels of nearly 56 different types of bacteria that we encounter daily. Further proof of this idea can be found in a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine. The research found that in general, Amish people suffer less from immune related illnesses due to their exposure to the bacteria and germs carried by farm animals. It also notes that this way of living is very similar to how our human ancestors lived for thousands of years before us. Since all of us cannot live on a farm, the next best thing may be owning a dog.

While there is still animal borne microbes that can be harmful to humans, the positives greatly out-weigh the negatives. There is very good reason to believe that having an animal in the house, especially with young children, is good exposure to necessary germs and bacteria. Humans and dogs have had a relationship that dates back more than 40,000 years. Perhaps we are just now discovering some of the other benefits of our relationship besides the unwavering loyalty and companionship they offer.

Powerful Tinnitus Therapies You Probably Aren’t Using

It is estimated that 15% of the U.S. population, or roughly 50 million people, experience some form of tinnitus. There are various causes for the perceived buzzing, chirping, hissing, or ringing in the ear. However, nearly 90% of tinnitus cases are accompanied by underlying hearing loss. Other tinnitus causes include earwax impaction, underlying vascular conditions, high blood pressure, spinal problems, as well as certain medications or combination of medicines. If you are unsure if you have tinnitus, or if you would like further counseling on tinnitus treatment, keep reading.

If you have not yet seen a doctor about your hearing loss or tinnitus, please do. There are options, treatments, and therapies available that may help you to cope with this frustrating condition. By seeing a doctor, you will be able to (in most cases) identify the root cause of your tinnitus, allowing you to seek treatment accordingly. Standard tests for tinnitus include a range of hearing test and other related examinations. Additionally, some tests and exercises may be done to rule out causes other than noise induced hearing loss.


Once a cause for your tinnitus has been determined, your focus should then turn toward utilizing specific therapies, activities, and treatments to reduce the severity of your tinnitus. There are a variety of tinnitus relief therapies that can be used to help combat your symptoms. One of the more common treatments used is known as TAT, or Tinnitus Activities Treatment. This therapy is focused on uniquely counseling each person, tailoring the exercises and activities specifically to that person’s tinnitus symptoms. Through this treatment, the patient is evaluated in 4 areas that are affected by their tinnitus. These areas include sleep, hearing, emotions, and concentration. Therapists spend time working with the patient to improve in these areas in hopes of reducing the effects of their tinnitus. Other types of therapy used to help alleviate the symptoms of tinnitus include cognitive behavioral therapy, tinnitus retraining therapy, and sound therapy. These are all designed to help the patient learn to live with tinnitus by finding ways to decrease the severity of the symptoms and improve the patients’ quality of life. There are many interesting ways in which cognitive exercise can retrain the brain to make the tinnitus noise less noticeable to the patient.

For more information about tinnitus symptoms, causes, and the different types of treatment available, plus additional resources, visit The Hearing Health Foundation & The American Tinnitus Association.

For help with relief from the severity of your tinnitus, we also recommend using Ring Relief® from The Relief Products. Ring Relief®, winner of the 2017 Women’s Choice Award for Tinnitus Relief, is a homeopathic product developed to provide multi-symptom therapy for the temporary relief of symptoms such as buzzing, chirping, roaring, or ringing in the ear. It also provides temporary relief for sensitivity to noise, nerve sensitivity in the ear, ear discomfort, as well as ear congestion and throbbing. Ring Relief® is safe and gentle to use with no known contraindications. Ring Relief® is available in both ear drops and fast dissolving tablets.

Studies Find Meaningful Mindfulness Can Lead to Improved Health & Happiness


Per a recent CNN article by Jen Christensen (CNN Health, Medical, & Wellness Unit Producer), Studies have found that practicing mindfulness daily can have many health benefits, including reduced stress levels, sharpening the mind, a reduction in anxiety, and an increase in focus. According to, Mindfulness can be defined as “the basic human ability to be fully present, aware of where we are and what we’re doing, and not overly reactive or overwhelmed by what’s going on around us.” This may seem like a straight forward concept, but it can be surprising how many of us are unable to fully achieve mindfulness on a day to day basis. It can be viewed as meditation, but also as a mindset and way to live your life- never allowing your emotions to overcome and distract your brain from what is happening in the present moment.

Scientists and researchers have found that humans spend much of their time thinking about things other then what is happening immediately around them. Surely many of us can relate. Often, we find ourselves thinking about the things in our lives that cause us stress and anxiety, not allowing ourselves to truly be present in the moment and focus on the task at hand. One study tested this theory by texting people at random times throughout the day to ask what they were doing and what they were thinking about.  Not surprisingly, about 46% of adults (nearly half) were not focused on the task at hand, but thinking about something else while working. Some of us would simply call this “multitasking,” but there are signs indicating it is non-beneficial to our health. Those in the study that reported “regular mind wandering” were found to be less happy then those who could remain focused.

So how do we become mindful? And how do we stay mindful daily? Science has found that both sleep and meditation are very beneficial for maintaining a sharp mind. The Dalai Lama, a master of meditation, sleeps for approximately nine hours per night and spends 5 hours meditating every day. He practices analytical meditation, meaning he spends time thinking about and analyzing the world around him. He finds this extremely helpful in remaining sharp and focused.

Recent research found that monks who spent many hours meditating show signs of change in their brains. Through MRI’s, doctors could observe signs of neuroplasticity, “meaning the monks’ brains were reshaping to become more resilient.” This is a fascinating concept considering that for many years we believed that a person’s brain became fully developed as an adult, with little to no change occurring thereafter. Scientists found that these monks could activate the part of their brain responsible for controlling their over-all well-being and immune system, thus allowing them to reach “a deeper level of consciousness.”

The good news is that we do not have to become monks to become more mindful and conscious. Scientists also spent time studying those who were new to meditation and monitored them for 8 weeks as they received mindful attention training. These studies also found an improvement in the region of the brain that controls our emotions. Additionally, it was determined that practicing mindfulness tends to make people more productive, stable, and have more self-control. The article goes on to discuss how mindfulness may be beneficial for those trying to overcome mental issues including depression and addiction. While there is still much research and experimentation to be done, it can certainly be concluded that mindfulness has positive effects on the human mind and body, perhaps more so than we know.

4 Simple Tips For Staying Healthy This Holiday Season




For many, the holiday season is one of the most enjoyable times of the year. However, the chaotic schedules and stress that come with it can have serious impacts on our health. Unfortunately, many of our schedules and habits are working hard to weaken our immune system and make us sick. The chaotic nature of the season leaves us little time to focus on ourselves, or our health. It is always important to put health first, with an emphasis on exercising and eating properly. As we shy away from our diets and resort to unhealthy foods, so begins a cycle of unhealthy habits that can be hard to break. Here are a few simple tips for staying healthy during the holidays.


1. Watch what you eat.

It doesn’t come as a surprise that the holidays can add a couple inches to your waistline. Between the holiday meals and decadent deserts it is common to put on some extra weight this time of year. Eating healthy during the holidays is difficult! Deserts and other sweets contain high levels of sugar which negatively affect your immune system, reducing your bodies ability to fight off illness and disease. In a recent study, the CDC found only 9% of all Americans are eating the daily recommended amount of vegetables, and only 12% are eating the recommended amount of fruit. Make it a priority to eat healthy when you can, your body will thank you for it!


 2. Drink Water and Stay Hydrated.

Staying hydrated is always important, especially in the winter months to avoid illness, as bacteria and viruses thrive in dry, cool conditions. Do not allow your body to be a breeding ground for illness! At night, try sleeping with a humidifier to add moisture to the air. More importantly, be sure to drink plenty of water (health officials suggest about 8 glasses per day). The physical and mental health benefits of drinking water are often overlooked!

Additionally, it is common this time of year for people to attend parties, stay out later, and consume more alcohol. For these reasons, it is even more important to replenish your body, as dehydration can be the cause for many common conditions you want to avoid (headaches, fatigue, etc.).


3. Stay Active.

Staying fit during the holidays can also be a challenge. Whether it is due to a hectic work schedule or the cold weather, people tend to spend far more time inside during the winter months. This lack of activity and limited exposure to sunlight can lead to a weakened immune system. Try some at home exercises, or head out to the gym for a full-body workout. Staying active will help fight off illness, improve your energy levels, help you sleep, and boost your overall level of happiness.





4. Stop the Spread of Germs.

Avoiding germs is one of the best ways to stay healthy. For starters, wash your hands more often. This will greatly reduce the risk of getting sick. In addition to washing your hands, wipe down any surface that someone else may have touched or used before you. This is especially important while traveling (airports, planes, buses, etc.). Always be sure to carry hand sanitizer with you as well.



Using these tips as a guide will help you to stay healthy through the colder winter months. You want to feel your best while spending time with family and friends, so take control of your health this year and make it a priority. From all of us at TRP, we hope everyone has a happy and (very) healthy holiday season!

Pink Eye Antibiotics: Overprescribed?

Pink Eye Antibiotics: Overprescribed?

In the United States alone, pink eye affects more than 6 million people per year. There are three different causes, or “kinds” of pink eye. There is viral, bacterial, and allergy-induced pink eye. A recent study, published by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, has concluded that the use of pink eye antibiotics as a remedy, in most cases, is ineffective. When it comes to cases of viral and allergy induced pink eye (the most common forms), there is no medical use for antibiotics. Furthermore, bacterial cases which could be cured by antibiotic use are generally too mild of an infection to warrant using antibiotics for treatment.

This study was the first of its kind when it comes to assessing the use of antibiotics as a treatment for pink eye. After gathering data over 14 years and examining approximately 300,000 cases of pink eye, it was concluded that approximately 60% of patients are prescribed antibiotic pink eye drops when diagnosed. In addition, 20% of those receive an antibiotic-steroid combination that could potentially worsen or prolong the condition. It has been determined that nation-wide, there is consistent antibiotic misuse for treating any kind of viral or mild bacterial infection. One contributing factor may be that most of these diagnoses are coming from primary care physicians, not eye care specialists.

The nationwide practice of incorrectly prescribing antibiotics as pink eye medicine has negative consequences. For one, these prescriptions increase the cost to not only the consumer but to the healthcare companies as well. Moreover, the over-prescription of antibiotics can potentially lead to the body building up a resistance to the antibiotics, making that treatment ineffective going forward with other medical conditions.

When it comes to your health, the well-being of the patient should always be first. However, as this study has shown, that is not always the case. Lead Author of the study, Nakul S. Shekhawat, M.D., M.P.H., describes the current situation best by saying: “Current treatment decisions for pink eye are not based on evidence, but are often driven more by the type of healthcare practitioner making the diagnosis and the patient’s socioeconomic status than by medical reasons. The potential negative consequences are difficult to justify as we move toward focusing on value in health care.”
