Healthy Hoohoo Review

Inline image 1 

Three out of four women get at least one yeast infection in their lives; nearly half have two or more; and about five percent of women get four or more in a single year.  Most women can tick off the well-known causes of yeast infections: antibiotics, douches, weak immune systems or tight clothes made from barely breathable fabrics. But there are other, hidden causes that can also be common culprits. Increase your chance to prevent uncomfortable yeast infections by using healthy hoo hoo and being aware of the hidden causes.

Your estrogen is low
When you go through puberty, estrogen plumps up your vaginal tissues using a starch known as glycogen. Yeast loves glycogen, and without estrogen, they’d be all over it. But fortunately for us, estrogen feeds acidophilus, keeping the yeast at bay. Right before your period, though, your estrogen levels dip, and while they’re low, the yeast starts to grow. Symptoms tend to crop up right before your period shows up, but estrogen spikes again post-period to help even the score.

You eat too much sugar
Blood sugar spikes mean that a lot of glucose is running around in your system, which is like a dinner invitation to yeast. Sweets are one culprit, but plenty of healthy-seeming diets can be sugary traps. Eating a lot of fruit, juice or high-carb foods can cause blood sugar spikes, especially in the morning when your blood sugar is low.

You wear pantyliners
If you don pantyliners to keep your undies pristine, your efforts are probably backfiring. Pantyliners cause a low-grade irritation that can decrease the skin’s immunity. When our defenses go down, we get more symptomatic. Yeast also loves environments with little air, so the synthetic fibers in pantyliners that block airflow make yeast feel right at home.

You have vaginal eczema
When we think of eczema’s scaly, itchy rashes, we usually think of it cropping up on our arms or legs, but it can show up on the vulva and vaginal tissues, too. That causes chronic inflammation and irritation, so some people can develop yeast infections.

You use spermicidal condoms
The active ingredient in most spermicides is nonoxynol-9, which is not the gentlest substance. If the spermicide is irritating for the woman, then that will disturb her vaginal immunity and allow yeast to take advantage. That means spermicide creams, jellies, foams, gels, films and suppositories can all be problematic, along with diaphragms, which are usually paired with spermicidal creams, jelly or gels that can cause irritation.

Healthy hoo hoo was designed with the help of a formulation chemist, not to cure, but to simply allow a women’s body to naturally hit the “reset” button.  By avoiding over-washing and harsh cleansers, women who have been using healthy hoohoo are reporting improved moisture, comfort and odor conditions. 

The line helps bring balance to the mucosal membranes by maintaining the proper pH environment for lactobacilli strainswhich act as barrier to harmful bacterium.

Several well-intentioned soaps, cleansers and wipes actually strip away some of the balanced goodness Mother Nature put down there to keep a woman’s body in harmony.  Realizing those cleansers were filled with parabens (synthetic preservatives), fragrance and sulfates (harsh chemicals that make easy lathering possible), Stacy saw the need for a healthier alternative in the marketplace. She worked with a formulation chemist to create something simple, mild and better.

healthy hoohoo products are tested on gal pals, not animals, and are available online at,, and at fine body care boutiques and spas.

I was able to try the healthyhoohoo wipes and felt very fresh no irritation occurred this is good product for any woman to have in her restroom or even store in your gym bag for after a work out especially if you cant get to a shower right away. There is little to no smell and it is very gentle on the skin leaves you only with a fresh feeling. I have used other wipes before and I have to say this is one of the best so far.

Disclosure: I received a product for review these are my own honest opinions.

SaffroLean Update

Hello ladies, I told you I would be giving you updates on my SaffroLean progress so here it goes.....I forgot my SaffroLean over the Labor Day Holiday and we were out of town so there was nothing I could do about it. I was so upset because I could feel the difference right away. I went over board with the snacking and overeating so when I got on the scale it showed I did not gain weight thankfully ,but there was no weight loss either. So I vowed to get back on track and so here are my results so far:

I would like to say that I limit myself to anything fried or that contains a lot of grease or fat. I also have been running at least three days a week and this week I'm going to incorporate a 20 minute workout with three pound weights.

Good Housekeeping Promotion in Support of National Window Coverings Safety Month
Free Cordless Upgrades Offered to Help Promote Awareness of Potential Window Cords Hazards

New York (September 10, 2012) – In recognition and support of October as National Window Coverings Safety Month Good Housekeeping Custom Blinds and Shades will offer its customers free cordless upgrades between September 15th through October 31st.

The initiative is part of a nationwide campaign co-sponsored by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC). It was designed to increase consumer awareness of potential window cord hazards, as well as to encourage the use of cordless window products in homes with young children.

Good Housekeeping, which launched its comprehensive collection of custom blinds and shades earlier this year, features performance and safety-based window treatments, with an emphasis on cordless options for child safety.

“Window treatments need to be durable and safe, especially if there are young children in the house,” said Rosemary Ellis, Editor-in-Chief of Good Housekeeping. “Our custom blinds have been evaluated at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute to ensure that they meet industry standards and have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal.” 

Parents and caregivers throughout the nation are urged to replace blinds, corded shades and drapes with today’s safer products. In offering its customers free cordless upgrades, Good Housekeeping Custom Blinds and Shades hopes to shed light on and prevent potential strangulation hazards that window cords can pose.

In order to avoid such incidents and ensure child safety, the Window Covering Safety Council offers the following precautions:
·         Always keep windows closed and locked when small children are in the room. If you wish to open a window for ventilation, be sure it is one out of their reach.
·         Do not place cribs or other furniture near windows. Young children are determined climbers and they are often enticed to crawl over such objects and reach for nearby items. When doing so, they run the additional risk of falling.
·         Never allow anything to dangle into a crib or bed. Babies and toddlers can easily become entangled while sleeping or playing.
·         Discourage children from playing near windows and patio doors. Establish rules concerning safe play areas and stick to them.
·         Never allow long window covering pull cords to "puddle" on the floor next to the window.
·         Never allow pull cords or continuous cord loops to hang loose and free, especially within the reach of a small child.
·         Pay attention to the bottom chains that exist on many vertical blinds. While inconspicuous, these chains pose the same risks as pull cords, particularly to those children crawling on or playing close to the floor.
·         Only install window treatments that provide the highest quality child safety devices, such as cord-free hardware systems, cord tensioners and control wands.
·         Consider installing window guards on both upstairs and downstairs windows to prevent children from tumbling out. While screens are sufficient for keeping bugs outside, they do little to hold a child's weight. Be sure that each window guard has a quick release mechanism in case an emergency exit is necessary.
