Bona Dea ~ for Natural Fertility & more ~ 2 Winner Giveaway

I hope this post is just the answer many of you are looking for. Do you have a story similar to this?

My wife had NO issues with our first, when we wanted a second child it took nearly a full year of planning, temperature taking and finally a round of clomid before we were blessed with our angel-faced daughter.  After nearly two years of trying for our third child and three rounds of clomid, my wife finally got pregnant and unfortunately miscarried a few months later. ~ Rich,  co-founder of Bona Dea Nutrition, LLC

Then he found Bona Dea and their prayers were answered. Bona Dea is a fertility tonic that helps many women get pregnant….naturally. There are a few other health benefits from it too!

What exactly is Bona Dea?

Made from Rubus Ideaus, an herb from the leaf of a red raspberry that is widely known and used for uterine and pregnancy issues. If you google the word you will find a lot of interesting facts on it. It helps give tone to the muscles of the pelvic region, including the uterus itself.

Bona Dea is made in liquid form and the drops are taken on a daily basis. It works for many in a relativity short time, the average of four or five months. Sometimes sooner!

It helps more than just fertility…

Also been know to benefit the joints and tendons. Red Raspberry’s astringent properties make it helpful in relieving diarrhea, and its antiseptic properties make it beneficial for treating sore throats and canker sores.

What do you think? Is it something that can help you?

Cut Out the Fluoride withTheraNeem Naturals Tooth & Gum Power

I remember our first pediatrician back home fondly. Maybe because he was MY doctor when I was little and I thought it was awesome that I now visited him with my own child. He had the doctor look ~ his spectacles hanging over his nose as he talked with me and the bowtie neatly sitting at his neck. The one thing he never failed to ask me at each appointment was Are they Drinking Water with Fluoride in it?

Those early years, I eagerly replied Yes! Then, when we started filtering I would gently nod my head because technically we were. Our filtered water did not take out fluoride (though I hated it and was already finding toothpaste alternatives). If he asked me this question today, I would have to say NO!

We now use a completely fluoride-free water filter that of course gets rid of all the other gross stuff in water too. It tastes so good I do not like the taste of water as much anywhere else!

Here are some quick facts about fluoride…

  • fluoride is one of the most toxic substances on earth, on par with arsenic and lead
  • It has no proven biological use inside the human body (teeth included).
  • Approximately 50% of the fluorine ingested, remains and accumulates in the body
  • Boiling water for soup, coffee, tea or other drink, only concentrates fluoride
Interesting fact on how the use of fluoride even came about….


Fluoride is a pollutant – a by-product of copper, iron and aluminum manufacturing. The problem of how to legally dispose of fluoride was solved in the 1930’s when a study (funded by one of the country’s largest aluminum companies) concluded that fluoride prevented tooth decay. A successful public relations effort, helped along with some cooperative government cronies, resulted in the good news going out.* (love that last line.)


Gross! Fluoride is a poison – in certain forms it may kill the bacteria in your mouth and this is why it is found in toothpaste. This still doesn’t mean it’s ‘good’. There are many other safer alternatives to keeping your teeth and gums clean!

One is TheraNeem Naturals Tooth & Gum from Organix South. It is made with organic supercritical extracts of Neem leaf and Neem bark, also known as the toothbrush twig. Probiotics and Vitamin D3 are added in this innovative product to fortify healthy teeth and gums!

Tooth & Gum powder is fluoride, sulfate, gluten and cruelty free! With no artificial flavoring and coloring, it’s suitable for diabetics and children and very homeopathic friendly.


I’ve never used a powder before and I was intrigued and wasn’t sure I was going to like it because I didn’t think it would suds up. I was wrong! But did you know that suds are not needed in oral care? It is just what we have gotten used to. It’s the plants and herbs that are doing the good job. Makes total sense!

I really like Neem Tooth & Gum Powder and will be spreading the word to give it a try!

At $7.99 your first thought might be wow! This will get you through 200 brushings at $.03 per use. Not bad!

Here is a discount code to help out: 25OFF0512. Shop Organix South for 25% off of your entire purchase ~ good until May 31st


I received the tooth powder for review and was not compensated in any way and all opinions are my own.
