Products and Health Info
 

This page is the place to find out more about products and health-related topics you may have heard me talk about. I'm not specifically recommending any of these products or the health info, but you're welcome to research them more for yourself and discuss them with your healthcare provider. 

In compliance with the FTC guidelines, please assume the following about links and posts on this site:
  • My first priority is always providing valuable information and resources to help you create or maintain wellness in your life and I will only link to products or resources (affiliate or otherwise) that fit this purpose.
  • Many of the product links on HowardNorthrup.com are affiliate links of which I receive a small commission from sales of certain items, but the price is the same for you. Costs associated with running and maintaining HowardNorthrup.com have increased, so affiliate links are a way I help offset these costs.
  • If I post an affiliate link to a product, it is something that I either personally use, have researched, or would recommend without an affiliate link.
  • I do not allow advertising on HowardNorthrup.com, so clicking on any links in my sidebar or to posts within my site or to non-affiliate link external sites will not earn me ad referral commissions in any way.

Teflon Dangers - if your pet bird was sitting on your shoulder while you stood over your stove and heated your Teflon pan on High for about three minutes, your bird would drop dead from the gases (isn't that why they send a canary into a coal mine before sending humans?). At 680F, Teflon pans release at least six toxic gases, including two carcinogens (cancer-causing substances), two global pollutants, and MFA, a chemical lethal to humans at low doses. Read a very comprehensive report at: 

The Dangers of Teflon


Computer Trackball - For many of us who spend a lot of time on the computer, it's common to get pain or tightness in the palm, wrist, or toward the elbow. I realized a few years ago that this is from overuse of the "gripping" muscles and tendons we use to move the mouse around. After I bought a trackball to use instead of the mouse, my tightness went away because I just rest my hand on the trackball and move the ball around with one finger, while clicking the buttons with the thumb and other fingers. You just unplug your mouse and plug the trackball into a USB port (one of the small rectangular ports). Most trackballs come with software that lets you program the extra buttons for common functions you use. I've found the Logitech Marble Mouse (pictured below) to be affordable and a good quality trackball, so I have actually bought two--one for my desktop computer and one for my laptop. Click the link below to see the Logitech trackball that I use on Amazon:

Alternative Doctors (M.D.) - There are a few nationally-recognized doctors whose recommendations I've been following for up to twenty years. I starting taking notes in a notebook on all the recommendations they make for various conditions and have found their advice to be invaluable for people who are looking to stay healthy naturally instead of chemically. Here are links to their websites :
