Professor Tiger just arrived with his helpful hint of the day.
Tis the flu season and everyone is susceptible to a cold or a flu virus.
It travels from one to the other and is not picky or “choosey” as to who gets it.
Last year my family had a mild case of colds and after a horrific winter, we made it through to Spring.
This Winter was mild, thank God, but my family did not escape from suffering with colds and the flu. The aches and pains that go along with a viral infection or a terrible cold is really something else.
About two weeks ago, I woke up with severe back pain. After five days of this, my back and shoulders were extremely sore. I couldn’t understand what was happening. So, on the sixth day, I had to call my doctor for I didn’t think this was normal for just a cold.
Cold & Flu Season!
My doctor said, there is a virus going around, and it can be painful at times. She told me to drink plenty of water and liquids and take Tylenol as directed. More rest is needed and a heating pad will help.
My shoulders and back hurt so bad I just wanted to lie down and take the weight off of them. I tried putting these smaller patch type of heating pads on. They would only stay warm for a few hours, but then I would have to replace them.
This became very expensive and not very productive.
The pain, however, didn’t go away and so, I finally did some research to find something better.
I found two great heating pads made by Sunbeam, and one is longer which can cover the neck, shoulders and the back. You only have to buy it once, and it is not too expensive. Even if you did have to replace it over the years, the money saved would be substantial as they last several years when properly stored and kept.
At this point I was looking for relief, but if I could save some money – all the better.
The heating pad is called The Sunbeam X1 Renue Heat Therapy Wrap, and I have them listed here:
The longer model is long enough to cover a person’s entire back and neck. Not only would this be useful during colds and flu season, it’s perfect for people who have arthritis or anyone playing sports. Simply perfect to reduce pain and give the user some comfort and relief.
It stays put and you’re not looking for the pad after it has fallen off your back or stuck to your clothing,
This is wearable and washable.
Here is the actual description of The Sunbeam X1 Renue Heat Therapy Wrap.
(1) It is digital
(2) It has 4 heat settings-2hr. shut-off
(3) It has a 9 foot cord
(4) It is fully machine- washable pad
(5) Snap closer offers adjustable and comfortable fit
(6) It has a 2-year limited warranty
(7) Low Price, and with Amazon Prime – the Shipping is Free
As mentioned, the price is low enough, and it was worth every penny. I ordered the longer model through Amazon, so I didn’t even have to go anywhere. It was delivered right to my door.
Simple Heat Therapy
When you have aches and pains, who wants to go running around looking for heating pads?
Especially in cold, damp or snowy weather. I know I don’t. Anyway, to go on—-
So, after ordering The Sunbeam X1 and I have to tell you, it works, and I love it!
I won’t go back to the little heating pads that are so expensive anyway. Those either stick to your clothing or fall off.
With The Sunbeam X1 you put it on, plug it in, and it stays on while you are watching T.V. or eating your favorite meal.
If you are arthritic or in sports and you do order it, please let me know how you like it by leaving a comment.
My hope is that you have found this to be a very Helpful Hint!
