Dr. Oz Recommendations: UV Light Natural and Alternative Toothbrush Sanitizer For Health at 50% off

Alex and I are germaphobes.  Yes – we really are. And Alex much more than me, he is the germ police in our house. But one thing that I hate is cleaning with chemicals as I personally feel that they can be just as harmful.  So we try to find alternatives to cleaning and sanitizing our house and ourselves for the chemical-filled alternatives.  We have posted some about homemade natural cleaners (and will continue to do so), but have you ever thought about your toothbrush?

As a result, I was watching Dr. Oz a many months ago and he talked about how disgusting our toothbrushes were and all the the germs that infest them.  So, he recommended a UV Light sanitizer that comes with a toothbrush.  This set allowed you to sanitize your toothbrush and kill 99.9% of germs on your toothbrush between uses.

This totally made sense, it was clear that toothbrushes are nasty and it isn’t cost efficient to change constantly (especially as a family of 7) and the UV light sanitizing seemed to be the perfect “natural” solution to a clean toothbrush, healthier mouth and therefore healthier life.

But the cost floored me at $189.00 at Bed Bath and Beyond for EACH set for each person! YIKES!!  We really wanted to see if we could find an alternative to this high cost. We did find them on Amazon for $120, but this was still too much for our budget.  In addition, we get toothbrushes for FREE and very cheap all of the time, so all we really needed was a way to sanitize them naturally.

In our quest to find a cheaper alternative, we came across a company called Vio Light who sells exactly what we were looking for.  They were still higher than we wanted to pay so we searched for deals and discounts.  A couple of days later, we were able to buy $40 Vio Light vouchers for $20! Yipee!! We bought two of them.

We then bought two of the plug-in 4 toothbrush sanitizer.  The results were awesome and sickness greatly decreased and we didn’t seem to get sick as much.  The Plug-in one is awesome and the kids toothbrushes are still being sanitized today just as they were the day we bought it! All you do is after brushing, place your toothbrush in, push the button and then the UV light comes on for 10 minutes to clean them.  We just keep the toothbrushes in there as the toothbrush holder too!

The Kids’ 4 toothbrush sanitizer! Love it!

We have the same one in our bathroom.  We have been using Violight sanitizers for about 18 months now and we have had to by the replacement bulbs 1 time so far, so the bulbs last a long time.  These units are high quality and they are easy to clean. I have recommended them, even at full price, to many of my friends.

The moral of the story is that we completely agree with Dr. Oz’s recommendation, but couldn’t afford the cost and so we found an alternative that works beautifully and that we fully stand behind after trying it.  And now you can grab one of these sanitizers for cheap too through Mamapedia today!

Here’s the deal:

  • Head to the Mamapedia site here
  • You will see the $30 Vio Light voucher for $15
  • You can buy up to 4 of them
  • Add them to your cart and complete your purchase
  • Your voucher will be ready in a couple of days
  • Then you can redeem your voucher at the Vio Light website

They have several products and even cute kids ones and have been featured on several shows like Rachel Ray, Oprah and more. You can join the Vio Light mailing list and you will receive a coupon code for 10% off too. The big family ones that we bought were $49.95 – the voucher.  So in this case, if that is the one you wanted, you would pay $20 for it with this nice voucher deal! Dr. Oz needs to recommend these ones as they are much cheaper and seemingly just as effective as the $189 he has :)

Our only regret is not knowing about this method of sanitizer sooner – we probably could have prevented many illnesses and misery in our house! Plus it saves us money on medicine and keeping our toothbrushes lasting a lot longer!!

Do you have a toothbrush sanitizing system? Your thoughts?

Dr. Oz Says This Type Organic Oatmeal Best To Eat Before Bed To Sleep Only $3.26 For 20 oz ($0.16/oz.)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

by Lynda

 

On the Dr. Oz show today they were talking about the best foods to eat before bed because it has been shown that sleeping pills can cause cancer even if taken occasionally. Scottish Oatmeal,  according to the expert on the show, is the best food for the dollar to eat before bed to help sleep. At Amazon only $13.03 for 4- 20 oz. bags – Walmart has the same deal for $20.76.

The expert suggested no more than 1/4 cup for children before bed and 1/2 – 1 cup for adults (any more would be counter-productive because of digestion).

Bob’s Red Mill has an organic Scottish Oatmeal for those of us who prefer organic foods.

Here’s the deal:

Dr Oz Recommendations: Raspberry Ketone Miracle Weight-loss Supplements 3-Month Supply Only $10.18 Shipped (Normally $50)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

We posted a deal on these supplements from a daily discount site earlier this week.  At the time, we compared prices, including that on Amazon and that was the best deal at the time.

WELL……. Great news is that Amazon has dropped the price of this exact product since big time (probably to compete!) and so now you can get a 3-month supply that is normally $50 for 3-months for $10.18 for 3-months! That is a super sweet deal!

So what is the deal and product on a Dr. Oz recommendation?   Well it is called Raspberry Ketone.   Dr. Oz talked about Raspberry Ketone as a miracle weight loss supplement and you can see the video HERE.  So today, you can get a really good deal on a three month supply!

Amazon has dropped the price of the Raspberry Ketone 3-month supply to $10.18 (down from $49.99) and FREE shipping with Amazon Prime or a $25 or more order. 

Of course all health advice has to be considered and taken with a grain of salt.  We love hearing the health tips that Dr. Oz recommends and then deciding which ones we want to try and implement in our own lives.  But another fun thing we like to do is to find deals on things he recommends and when that deal pops up, sharing it with in in case this was a tip of his that you wanted to implement and do it for a lot less!

Head to Amazon HERE and choose the 120-ct. supply for the best value on sale for $10.18 shipped!

Thanks reader Melissa for the heads up on this deal!

Bob’s Red Mill Golden Flaxseeds Only $2.88 Each Bag Shipped FREE (MUCH Lower Than Walmart’s Everyday Low Price)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

by Cassie

We posted a smoothie recipe yesterday for Morning Orange Glory Smoothie with some very healthy additions (including veggies).  Well one ingreident that we use a lot of in more than just smoothies, is Flaxseeds! We love them and they are a super healthy food booster too! We add them to casseroles, salads, breakfast foods and much more.  Amazon is one of the best and consistently lowest prices on Bob’s Red Mill products, including the Flaxseeds.  It makes it a very affordable option and way to introduce some healthy add-ins without anyone noticing – your budget will not notice either :)

We’ve been using these for a long time, but Dr. Oz loves these little seeds and mentions them at least 1 or 2 per week! If you are curious about what they can do, feel free to search the Dr. Oz site.  I can’t point to just an episode or two like other Dr. Oz recommendation deals, as there are just too many references! We have also found that it has been one of the easiest and affordable diet changes we have made for our entire family!

Here’s the deal: Amazon has a pack of four 24oz. (1.5 lbs bags) of Golden Flaxseeds for $13.56 but you can get them for $11.53 for 4 bags  when you choose the subscribe and save option in the top right corner = $2.88 each bag shipped FREE.

Like I mentioned above, Amazon is consistently the lowest price.  Walmart sells the 1 lb (16oz. bags) for $4.49, so this is a significant price difference when a bag that is bigger is much cheaper online!

Here’s how to get this deal:

  • Head to the Amazon Bob’s Red Mill Golden Flaxseed deal HERE
  • You will see them on sale for $13.56 for 4 bags
  • Then choose the subscribe and save option in the top right corner which will take another 15% off and drop the price to $11.53 for four 24-oz. bags or $2.88 each shipped FREE

Please note:  the 15% discount is for the Subscribe and Save option.  Amazon states that you can cancel subscribe and save at any time, including right after the order.  So if you do not intend to continue having them automatically delivered, cancel the subscribe and save soon after so you do not forget (wait for your items to ship before canceling as it will cancel your current order)!
