Post from Julie Denise of Victoria, BC
Spring has sprung but it is still a little chilly, at least here on the west coast. I was going for a jog the other afternoon and although it is not super cold, I still found that my fingers were quite cold. The next time I set out for my jog, I had one 3SecondHeat Mini in both pockets of my hoodie and what a difference! They worked as a great a little warm up during my morning runJ

This is a cool photo we found that depicts how Raynaud’s affects the body. For those of you who don’t know, Raynaud’s Syndrome causes the extremities to drop in temperature due to lack of blood flow to those regions. The fingers, toes or earlobes will turn white and numb, then blue in the body’s effort to keep blood in the tissues. This episode is often accompanied with a tingling, painful sensation. Cold and stress are the main causes for an episode. In an effort to help those suffering with this condition, 3SecondHeat is doing a promotion that gives individuals $10.00 off their purchase at www.3SecondHeat.com when using the coupon code “raynauds10” during checkout. 3SecondHeat offers a line of instant, reusable heating pads that are great for those with Raynaud’s because they are extremely portable, lightweight and of course, reusable. This type of pad is especially handy for this type of circulation disorder because it is ready to use at any time and can be activated simply by bending a metal disk located within. If one senses an episode coming on, he or she can use a 3SecondHeat pad to warm the necessary areas to prevent or help ease the troubled spots.
If you do a lot of skiing or snowboarding, your toes and fingers can often get cold when out for extended periods. 3SecondHeat Mini and Heart pads are a great solution for this! These are the smallest sizes of the 3SecondHeat line and can fit easily into the top of your gloves or side of your boots. These sizes will stay warm for 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the temperature and how well they are insulated. The pads are so lightweight that you can bring a couple up with you during your day, then recharge them when you are finished. I was using a heart in Whistler last week and it really took the numbing edge of my frosty fingers!
Knowing many people who suffer from fibromyalgia, I know that a little bit of heat can help provide some comfort.

What is nice about 3SecondHeat products is that they allow you alternate between hot and cold treatment. For heat, simply bend the metal disc inside the product. For cold, you may refrigerate or freeze the product to maintain a chilly temperature. But more importantly before treating an athletic injury, one must first determine whether the pain is acute or chronic.
Chronic Pain = Heat
This type of pain develops slowly and is an always present, dull, long-lasting feeling.
With chronic pain, it is harder to determine the cause. This type of pain could be caused from overusing or underusing certain muscles or from an acute injury that was not treated properly so the pain lingers on. Heat should be used when there is no swelling present. Heat therapy is most effective when used on sore, tight muscles or joint pain. For athletes, it is best to use heat before exercise to promote blood flow or increase elasticity in connective tissues. Heat therapy is also useful when trying to relax muscle spasms. One should not use heat after an heavy workout or apply heat longer than 20 minutes on a chronic injury.
Acute Pain = Ice
This type of pain comes on quickly, sharp and is usually short lived.
Acute injuries are usually sudden, traumatic injuries that occur immediately or shortly after and cause moderate to extreme pain. This type of pain is usually a result of some sort of impact or trauma such as a fall, sprain, or collision. In this case, the cause of injury is usually pretty apparent. The most important thing to note is if the area is warm, swollen or inflamed. If there is any inflammation, it is an acute injury and ice should be used to reduce swelling. The ice will also reduce internal bleeding where the injury is located.
As we come out of hibernation with spring fast approaching, it is always important to consider our impact on the environment. When one chooses to use 3SecondHeat, he or she is reducing waste by avoiding the purchase of disposable heat pads. When we stray away from buying more items that produce waste, the practice is referred to as precycling. The concept emphasizes the urgency to reduce and reuse. A reusable heat pad simply needs to be boiled for a short period after being used to recharge the product. Like a sponge, when the pad is boiled, it sucks up all the heat and stores it for you to use at a later date. If one takes care of their reusable heat pad, it can be used for several years!
