The Best Products For Keeping A Spoonie Warm (Part 1)

Updated: Dec 13, 2021

Today we are going to review some of our best products that I recommend to individuals with rheumatic autoimmune diseases or chronic pain conditions.

If you live with a chronic health condition, chances are you've learned just how mad weather can effect your condition.

I'm not just talking about headaches when the pressure drops (although I know that does suck!), I'm talking winter winter. ❄⛄❄

Cold weather can cause a lot of pain for individuals who have arthritic autoimmune diseases such as Sjogren's, lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.

We've been around the block more than we can count, as the winters in Alberta, Canada can dip down to -30 degrees Celsius on our coldest winter days. (that's -22F!)

Today we are going to be sharing some of the best products that have helped us keep warm during the winter season.

If you have an autoimmune disease you might know first hand how difficult it can be getting out to a store, add in wintery days and it makes it even less possible.

Shopping online has allowed me to find the products I need from the comfort of my own bed, shipped to my front door - all without leaving the house.

We like the accessibility of products on Amazon, and if you have a Prime account you can get things fast. Today we are offering amazon links to view and purchase your products.

We hope this helps.

Great ideas! I have a microwavable heating pad - and I use it everyday. I had no idea that there was such a thing as a rechargeable hand warmer - will have to check that out.
