Short And Long-Term Storage Of Your Taylormade Golf Clubs

July 4, 2016 | By Mary Tucker | No Comments | Filed in: Golf.

Admit it, your Taylormade golf clubs did not come off cheap but you bought them anyway. No need to worry, nobody is judging you because it is perfectly acceptable to spend money as long as what you are paying for is quality. But a wise spender knows not only to purchase the best in the market but also how to keep the purchase at its best. Yes this article will talk about how you can store your golf clubs in a way that every time you take them out for a swing in the greens, they will still look as good and new as the first day you brought them home.

Now, there are two scenarios that require golf club storage: first is storing them only for a few days until your next game, and second is keeping them safe and sound for longer periods of time. This How-To will teach you both, starting off with golf club day-to-day storage.

Short-term Storage of Your Taylormade Golf Clubs

Callaway Golf ClubsAs mentioned, short-term storage means the need to keep your golf clubs for a couple of days. Tip number 1? Never store them at the trunk of your car. Making your car’s trunk your short-term go-to storage place is putting your golf clubs at risk of scratches, nicks and dents. In addition to that, your car trunk’s temperature can go up to 200 degrees on a beautiful summer day. Take note that heat can affect your Taylormade golf clubs in many unpleasant ways such as breaking down the glue under the grip.

If you plan to store your golf clubs in the garage, well, that would be a much better idea than the car trunk. Just make sure that everything is dry, from your clubs to the bag itself. Also, check first if moisture buildup occurs in your garage. It will be quite nonsense to store your clubs dry but leave them susceptible to humidity since that leads to rust.

So to summarize, car trunk is a big “no”, garage is a “yeah, okay”. But if you want a definitive “yes”, then all you have to do is not be too lazy to lug them back into your house each time.

Long-term Storage of Your Taylormade Golf Clubs

Long-term is talking about several months or so. Whether it’s an off season for a golf game or you want to try your hand at other sports, knowing how to store your golf clubs the right way is a must; after all, there is still a chance you would take them out for a swing again, right?

Golf ClubsFor long-term storage, the same basic rules still apply. Keep them at a place where humidity and temperature is controlled so the best location is still your house.

Temperature-controlled not only means keeping your golf clubs away from extreme heat but also from extreme cold (especially when it is winter). While heat can break down glue, cold can dry out the grips which hardens it enough to be cracked without difficulty.

Remember to clean your Taylormade golf clubs and making sure they are dry before you store them for safekeeping. If possible, place a rain cover over it and store it somewhere inside your house, in a space where it would not get knocked around and where you can easily check it from time to time.

Keep in mind that even though it might be a long time before you visit the green landscapes of a golf course, you still spent your very own hard-earned money to buy those golf clubs. Surely, that thought is enough for you to store them the right way.

Five Reasons to Use a Real Estate Finder When Searching for Long Island Homes for Sale

June 22, 2016 | By Miguel Colin | No Comments | Filed in: Real Estate.

Many home buyers commit the ultimate mistake of handling everything themselves when looking for properties to buy and negotiating for a house they like. They believe that they can save a lot of money by not seeking help from anyone.

Although this strategy really removes the need to pay commission, it also increases the risk of buying a substandard and overpriced property, especially when the buyer is not a licensed broker or a professional negotiator in the first place.

Do not take unnecessary risk. These five reasons will tell you why you need to use a real estate finder when looking for Long Island homes for sale.

1. Searching for the best home is so painfully hard.

This journey is never easy. You will be wasting a lot of time, energy, and money because you will be doing a lot of phone calls, negotiating, visiting, and traveling in the process. You will lose a lot of money and may even incur losses from your job or business if you keep on dividing your time and attention for months.

real estate finder

A real estate finder makes your life easier by giving you instant search results that can be narrowed down according to your specific requirements in a click of a button. long island homes for sale can be found at You can search for Long Island homes for sale even while taking a coffee break or before going to bed. You can do it even if you are halfway around the globe for a business meeting or a conference. Won’t you love to find what you are looking for without taking your responsibilities for granted?

2. Getting updated listings can save you more than a year’s worth of salary.

A reliable online real estate finder gets collective updates in real time. A real estate broker can also give you updated listings of course, but why deal with one broker if you can get updates from an entire network.

online real estateUsing updated listings is very important because it allows you to see Long Island homes for sale that have been released in the market just recently. Many properties that have not been sold in the past six months also tend to drop in price, so not getting your hands on an updated listing can also result to lost opportunity to renegotiate and save money.

3. Property searching is a very visual task.

Judging Long Island homes for sale from the way they look is never the best way to narrow down your choices. Aesthetics is not always a reliable consideration. Whether one denies it or not though, the visual appeal of a house remains very influential in a homebuyer’s decision.

architectural designA real estate finder can give you very specific choices according to your preferred size of house and lot, number of bedrooms, and architectural design. What’s more is that you can see how each house exactly looks like, from the interiors to the exteriors. If you are not satisfied, you can always take a look at the neighborhood by checking it via Google Map street view.

4. You need a realtor.

propertyA real estate finder can make searching and the narrowing down of options very easy. However, it cannot really help you talk to the seller and negotiate for the price that you want.

Fortunately, there are real estate finders that do not only offer listings but also provide a network of realtors from which you can hire a realtor of your choice. Why do you need a realtor?

First, realtors have first-hand knowledge of the Long Island homes for sale and their sellers. They know which ones are only good in picture and which ones are really worth your money. They also know which sellers are hard to deal with. Furthermore, they know a lot about appraising properties, so they can help you figure out if a property is overpriced or not.

Second, realtors are excellent negotiators. They can help you negotiate to keep a house’s price in the lowest part of your range.

Lastly, realtors can take care of everything until the house is ready for occupancy. He will coordinate with the seller and other agencies needed in transferring the title of the house and lot, instead of you doing everything by yourself.

5. Purchasing a house is not the end of it.

real estate expertsMaking the purchase does not end all the problems, most of the time at least. You may have to do some remodeling, reconstruction, renovation, and interior designing. Instead of looking for different contractors to handle the jobs, you can just look for the accredited contractors of some real estate finders as their networks include all professionals and companies that have something to do with the real estate industry.

Ineffective Uses Of Custom Lanyards And Ways To Correct Them

June 21, 2016 | By Barbara Colbert | No Comments | Filed in: Product.

Lanyards are everywhere. Even if companies have custom lanyards, there are times when we can hardly tell what lanyard belongs to them. A company lanyard is supposed to help company or business branding. It is supposed to help identify its employees and supporters.

ID HoldersHowever, despite the efforts exerted, it fails to fulfill its purpose. We know that the reason why companies or groups have their own company lanyards is that they want to brand their company. The objective may be good but if it is not done properly then efforts will most likely go to waste.

Here Are Few Of The Reason Why The Use Of Custom Lanyards Becomes Ineffective.

Hard To Read Prints

This does not mean that everything on the lanyard must be visible for everyone to read. However, if you plan to use custom lanyards for company or business branding then make the prints recognizable enough for people to know the group or company that wearer represents.

A technique that we normally suggest to our clients is to embed their company logo on the lanyard. If your logo contains detailed designed, then try to come up with something that will easily identify the wearer as a member of your group or company.

It is good to use unique fonts, but make sure that the fonts are easily readable by those who will be seeing them. There are fonts that are attractive and tempting to use on a lanyard but we always ask our clients to do a reality check if these are readable.

Some fonts are good to look at but it does not mean that they will also look good in a lanyard. No matter how attractive a font or a design is, if people can’t decipher the name of your group or company, then it defeats the purpose of creating customized lanyards.

Poor Materials Used

We know when every business or company wants to maintain a good impression. Every business has an image that they need to maintain and take care of so it is safe to say that as a business, you must always protect your company’s image.

Do not do anything that will ruin your company’s image. Whatever you present to the public must always be of high quality. These include your company’s products, services and even your company’s paraphernalia.

Your company’s paraphernalia includes your company lanyards. You have to keep in mind that your employees represent your company. A simple worn out lanyard can say a lot about your company.

LanyardsA poorly created lanyard can affect the confidence of your employees, which means that they will become ineffective in becoming walking advertisement or company representative. They may end up hiding their lanyards in their pockets while they are out or they may not use these at all. If your employees do not use these items, then the money you have used to purchase them will just be waste.

Another thing is that buying lanyards from poor materials may cost cheaper, but in the end, it will mean expense to your company. This means that you have to replace your company lanyards more often compared to custom lanyards made from high quality materials.

Lanyards made from cheap materials cause you to lose more money in the end, instead of gaining. Aside from not encouraging or bringing in more clients to your business, poorly created lanyards can also ruin your image, adding to your company’s losses.

No Uniformity

Our custom lanyards are made to create a sense of unity and uniformity among a group of people. If people in the company or organizations are wearing different types of lanyards then your company do not really stand as a single group or team.

If your company decides to request for company lanyards, then make sure that everyone in the company gets one. You cannot give these to only a chosen few. This may cause the formation of factions in the company. You want to create that sense of solidarity among your team, so make sure that everyone will be wearing the same lanyard.

Now, if you want to identify your people based on the department that they belong to then maybe you can create a different color scheme for each department. It is easier to just maintain the same lanyard design but choose different color scheme for each department. It will help you save time in creating the different designs for each department you have. Besides, it makes your company branding if everyone in the team is wearing the same lanyard design.

Having different lanyard design in the company may be confusing for other people. If you have to replace your design then make sure that you give out the new lanyards to everyone. A company’s secret to success is to have a group of people working as one to achieve a common goal. A simple act of wearing a uniform lanyard can create that sense of unity, and we can help you achieve that by meeting the specific requirements that you relay to us when you sought our help for your lanyard needs.

Custom-Made or Pre-Designed Iron-On Patches

June 14, 2016 | By Gail Aiken | 1 Comment | Filed in: Fashion.

Iron-on patches will always be on trend. This fashionable and useful accessory has been around for years, and is still as popular as ever. It is used not only by various clubs and organizations but also by individuals as a fashion statement. Clubs, organizations, scouting troops, and sports teams use them on their shirts, bags, or caps to identify and distinguish their own groups. Fashion-forward individuals attach them on their clothes in order to create a statement or express their beliefs. Many patches are also becoming collectors’ items, and there are social media sites dedicated to patch collectors worldwide.

There are various kinds of iron-on patches such as iron-on appliques, iron-on letters and numbers, and iron-on rhinestones and sequins.

patchesEmbroidery appliques are the most durable kind of iron-on patch, and since they’re made from all possible types of thread, they also come in all kinds of imaginable designs.

The main component of an embroidered iron-on patch and what makes it work is its adhesive that is heat reactive. This particular adhesive is attached onto a specially-imprinted material. When heat is applied, the glue is then activated, which then sticks to a fabric. Many types of glue are attached to imprinted patches, depending on what type of fabric it will stick to.

There are pre-designed embroidered patches that are available in the market today, but iron-on patches can also be customized. People and organizations are limited only by their creativity in designing and customizing their own patches. Companies such as supply custom-made embroidered patches for various organizations and clubs such as sports teams, motorcycle clubs, military units, and others. They are also able to create patches for most types of fabric surfaces such as denim jackets, duffel bags, uniforms, and more. Most groups are given the flexibility and creativity to design their own patch, and they make it easy for their customers with a three-step order process. Customers just need to send a picture or an image of the patch design, or they can also send their sketched ideas and they will be made into embroidered patches.

Throughout the years, many popular slogans, monograms and images have been made into iron-on patches. What are the most popular and trending patches in the market today?

A walkthrough to the PCB Assembly Process

June 9, 2016 | By Kristina Chung | No Comments | Filed in: Electronics.

A PCB assembly is the mounting of electrical components such as integrated circuits (IC), resistors, and capacitors, on the circuit board. PCB manufacturers use either the surface mount technology (SMT) or through-the-hole assembly. Each assembly method has similar procedures and uses almost the same raw materials except on some of the following instances:

PCB assemblyOne, through-hole technology requires thicker PCB since we need to drill the boards with holes.

Second, in SMT, we, at, use surface pads to mount the components.

Third, the electrical components in through-the-hole technology have longer pins since these pins have to go through the holes before soldering.

Fourth, we use SMT if you require double sided PCB. Since electronic components in SMT are mounted on the surface, we can use the other side of the board to mount other electronic components.

Lastly, if you need electronic devices for heavy-duty equipment, we suggest through hole technology because of the stronger binding of the components on the PCB.

In our assembly team, we use both of the technologies, depending on your PCB requirements. What are the processes involved in the assembly stage? Below are the steps that our qualified and highly skilled individuals follow.

Preparing of the Raw Materials

The mounting technology schematic is forwarded to the assembly team. This schematic describes the manner of mounting the components, the stencil printing procedures, the comprehensive description of the electrical components (or the Bill of Materials) and other instructions that are important in the PCB assembly stage.

Printing the Stencil

StencilStencil printing refers to the squeezing of the solder paste on the board. This process is a critical stage since the stencil determines how much paste are placed on the board. The stencil used should be right because the paste contributes to the setting up of electrical connection on the board. Too much paste may overwhelm the electrical components.

Placing of the Components

During the preparation of the materials, the placing of the components in the machine placement is the second priority. This step follows immediately after paste stenciling to avoid solidifying of the solder paste on the board.


This process is the melting of the solder paste to connect the electronic components to the board. The right temperature is necessary to melt the solder paste. In connection with this step, the solder paste should have a lower melting point than the metals of the board and the components. Otherwise, the outcome may become faulty. In Through-the-hole technology, cutting off the extra pins of the electrical components is necessary.

Inspecting and Testing the PCBs

We inspect and test due to two reasons. One, we inspect and test your PCBs to follow the government quality standards and that our team takes extra measures to meet these standards. Two, we examine your PCBs to ensure that we deliver the highest quality of PCBs. In this stage, we use computers to detect any defects. In some instances, we manually inspect PCBs, especially for the prototypes. When the PCBs do not function accordingly, we send the PCBs to the rework area for repair. The PCBs that pass the testing stage are sent straight to the washing and packaging area.


In PCB assembly that uses washable solder paste, this is an important step to remove the excess solder paste and other accumulated dirt during the process. This washing step involves special chemical solutions to remove unwanted materials on the board.


This process is essential in keeping the service life of the PCB. We use packaging materials that protect your PCBs from shock, moisture and electrical discharges. We make sure that our personnel handles your PCB carefully. For handling purposes of the delivery team, we place instructions on the outer packaging. We know that no matter how good our assembly practices are, external factors may affect the quality of your PCBs.

Manual assembly

This stage may or may not happen, depending on three factors. One, if your PCBs do not pass the quality check, we forward the defective items to the repair and rework areas. Two, despite the use of SMT, we may still perform manual assembly on components that are so tiny for the pick-and-place machine to load. Three, manual assembly is practical on demo products.

These steps are general. For the highest quality of our PCB assembly, we may include more thorough inspection methods and other essential steps. We may even perform methods that are unique to our assembly company.

Psychological Effects of Wearing Custom Military Coins

May 28, 2016 | By Derek Swanson | No Comments | Filed in: Military.

We often see military personnel wearing custom military coins. It had always been part of their tradition and culture to wear challenge coins.

The army, police and other law enforcement agencies have always been our largest clients. These tokens serve more than just a form of identification to their personnel.

We continue to produce customized tokens for these agencies because they have seen positive results among their personnel. We have listed few of the positive behaviors that the customized tokens bring about among the military personnel.

Boosts Morale

coinsThe army or military personnel and other law enforcement groups perform risky duties and tasks. Despite the fact that their lives are at stake, these personnel still respond to dangerous situations because they know this is part of their work.

The simple act of wearing of custom coins reminds them of the important role they play in keeping the society peaceful and in order. The custom coins give them the confidence and self-esteem in performing their job.

The insignias are important reminders to the huge responsibility that their fellowmen and the entire country have given them. They rely on them for security and safety.

Encourages Patriotism

The job of military personnel is dangerous. However, despite this fact many of them are still willing to die for their country.

Military personnel stay loyal to the country they serve if they feel the value and importance that their country gives them. Ordinary citizens are taught at an early age to love and honor the country. On the other hand, military personnel are trained to protect and die for the country and its people.

Despite the danger, military officers stay true to the oath that they have made when they assumed the position that they have. The military tokens is a constant reminder for them to stay faithful and loyal to their country by always doing their duties.

Fosters Camaraderie

When military personnel see each other wear the same insignias, they immediately recognize a common ground. Only they would know the work and effort that they have exerted to gain the custom military coins.

A military coin with a special reason and purpose. Everyone in the law enforcement agency is aware of this fact. Therefore, when a military officer sees another officer wear the same emblem, they immediately recognize that they come from the same unit, group and they have experienced the same things.

Knowing that they have the same experience or they are from the same group, immediately bonds two people who might have just met for the first time. They understand the sacrifices that they made and they see the other person offered the same sacrifices as well. This results in men having mutual respect for each other.

Promotes Solidarity

There are times that military officers differ in their opinions and views in life. These differences could lead to disagreements. However, despite their differences military officers still act as one.

Custom military coins play an integral role in uniting military personnel. There might be times that they will not agree on the same things but the insignias they have remind them of their duties. This is enough for them to set aside personal differences and act as one for the common good.

They understand that despite their differences of opinions, they are still from one team, one group and they have one goal. The identical custom tokens that they have on their uniforms remind them that they are working on a common goal.

Custom military coins are more than just ordinary identification tokens that military personnel pin on their uniforms. They represent the values and principles that they stand for. They do not wear them just to embellish their uniforms. They wear them with honor and pride.

It is for these reasons that when we create custom military coins, we create them with precision and care. We know the respect and value that people will have on the tokens so we ensure that it will be made with high quality.

Tips on Hiring an Amazing Keynote Speaker

May 18, 2016 | By Annie Haynes | 1 Comment | Filed in: Speaker.

Most organizations have an annual conference, and it is likely that you would be tasked to secure a keynote speaker. At times, this speaker is not someone from the industry, but certainly a well-known individual.

This person would be the main reason delegates would want to be present in the event. The ideal speaker can motivate and inspire the audience, and has star power to persuade them to be at the conference and listen well.

Keynote Speaker

Here are the tips on hiring a presenter for the keynote speech:

1. Ask the higher-ranking individuals in your organization who they would like to deliver the keynote address. This may be someone that they admire. You may also want to check out other conferences because if someone is presenting at several conferences, they may already be overexposed. Think of the speaker circuit as holiday destinations – places and people could go out of trend quickly.

2. You must have around 10 individuals in your shortlist because half of them are probably abroad or already engaged on the date of your event. Some well-known presenters are even booked one year in advance.

3. You should verify the quality of the keynote speaker. Check Google and YouTube to make sure your potential speaker has the “it” factor or good stage presence. You may also want to check their contract to make sure you can terminate the contract if the speaker gets involved in a scandal or arrested.

4. You may not be a professional conference organizer, so you would have to book the speaker through their agent, and you would pay a speaker’s fee. This fee depends on two aspects: the current market rate, and the amount the agent thinks they could charge you. The problem is that you may not have an idea about these rates, which is why you should have 10 prospective speakers in your shortlist.

5. Just a reminder about the agent of the keynote speaker: they represent the speaker and not you. Act cool when you talk to the agent; inform them you have a fixed schedule, you are interested in a few speakers, and you have not yet decided on a budget. You can ask them for indicative pricing. Check out indicative prices for the speakers in your shortlist and negotiate.

6. Ensure that everything is in writing. Make some notes if you talk about issues over the phone, then send them an email to confirm what you have discussed.

7. Under some circumstances, some well-known people would speak free of charge. For instance, if you are a charitable institution or represent a cause that they believe in, the keynote speaker may not charge you with anything. However, even if a well-known speaker waives their fee, they would still have expenses like travel, meals, taxis, and accommodation, which you would have to pay for.

8. Remember that there should be a clear rule on who should not speak at your event. Government officials and elected politicians cannot receive speaking fees. Politicians as keynote speakers could be interested because most of them have incredible stories on their motivation to run for a public post. However, they may just discuss policy issues, which could be scripted and uninteresting.

9. Consider what you need to ask from the speaker. You would want them to present an empowering and amazing speech if you have paid them good money. If the speaker is really great, they may not need a PowerPoint Presentation.

10. Some well-known speakers would give the same presentation at each conference they are invited to. You must agree in advance what your keynote speaker would discuss – whether it would be a standard keynote presentation that everyone receives or a new topic.

Usefulness Of Logo Lanyards

May 13, 2016 | By Douglas Austin | No Comments | Filed in: Product.

History tells that lanyards started way back in the 15th century in France. French officers and even pirates and commanders used ropes to tie around their neck their important belongings. The word “lanyard” actually came from the French word “laniere” which means a strap or thong. Before, lanyards are just a piece of rope where a soldier ties his pistol to attach in their uniform during the world war.

It was also used in the Navy during the 17th century. Navy officers used ropes to keep their important belongings in place when they tread the blue waters. From simple strings and cords, these holders evolved into strong materials we presently know as lanyards made with various materials and color. At present, people use lanyards on them to hold small items such as whistles, knives and other tools.

Most Common Uses Of Lanyards Are As Follows:

logo LanyardsLanyards are very useful nowadays. They can be used to hold IDs, keys, USBs, cellphones, coin purses and any item that can be tied. Instead of searching in pockets and bags, they are conveniently tied around your neck. They can be very eye-catching thus can be used as promotional materials. One can promote the company by having their logo printed on a lanyard.

Companies often use logo lanyards for their employees to use or for giveaways. A person may be curious on what logo and company it represents when they see it printed in a cool lanyard. A company profile often stands out when its employees and affiliates proudly wear their lanyards.

Lanyards aren’t only used for holding various things such as IDs, as they can be a form of self-expression. They can also be used to show support for various causes such as breast cancer and ALS awareness. These can also be used effectively in company events and with customized printing one can have a very striking lanyard in display. Compared to other forms of promotional materials (mugs, T-shirts, posters), logo lanyards appeal to all ages and classes of people.

Modern printing devices and right colors are needed to ensure that lanyards look presentable and professional when used to represent a company. Lanyards can also be used as part of uniform in a company or for security purposes. By providing employees with logo lanyards with a company logo, this will make workers feel more important and more distinguished in a company.

It can also attract attention to future customers or even investors whenever employees are engaged in activities outside the company. Companies also use lanyards in various corporate events such as meetings, seminars and conferences. These are used as an alternative to pins that may damage their clothes or hurt someone.

logo-LanyardsStudents are marked as the top users of lanyards. This can be used to restrict access to strangers on school premises. IDs are made to be worn conspicuously, so security personnel can easily identify trespassers. Logo lanyards can also give the students pride for their alma mater, school spirit or a bond or connection amongst their classmates and schoolmates.

Logo lanyards can also be used in large occasions such as field trips. Teachers can easily identify the students as well as other people. School principals and administrative staff also wear lanyards.

Restrictions and HCG

April 13, 2016 | By Harry Ball | Comments Off on Restrictions and HCG | Filed in: HCG Restrictions.
RestrictionsBeverages such as fizzy drinks and sugar juices are off limits too. It is preferable to select some kind of herbal tea or pure mineral water. These beverages are more dangerous than any other items in the restricted list. They don’t leave any visible residue (increase in weight etc.), but leave lots of sugars floating in the system.
All the beginners on the HCG diet course must take particular care to ensure that the loading days are properly utilized. Failure to do so might cause lots of stress or an early break from the diet plan. Dieters who have been on and off the plans need to be especially careful. It is one of those time ranges, where most of the people give up on the diet plan.
The process of cycling is useful for the heavy dieters. These dieters, who decide on cycling, are generally the ones who aim for long term dieting. As a part of cycling, the dieters alternate between phase two and three, without proceeding to phase four. This is done in order to increase the effects of those phases, before finishing the diet plan.
The original HCG protocol, written by Dr. Simeons directed the dieters to take daily doses of HCG as well as VLCD (very low calorie diet) as a part of Phase 2. The daily intake of HCG is stopped in between 23 to 40 days. The VLCD is stopped after 3 days of stopping the HCG. P3 is set for duration of 3 weeks, in which dieters can eat any type of food, barring the ones containing sugar or starch.
One of the best solutions to maintain this healthy lifestyle is exercise. Starting with light exercise, the dieters are advised to increase the complexity of the exercises, thus making the body self-reliant on fighting against the increase in the body weight. Aerobics or yoga is especially helpful for the female dieters to maintain their body weight.
The dieter is happy with the results produced at the end of the HCG program. The dieter is taught various procedures to help them in stopping the body from gaining the extra weight. If the body does gain a few pounds later, just fall back to the diet in phase 3 to decrease the accumulated weight and regain the previous fitness. Phase four is continuous and unending. The dieter is in a perpetual Phase 4 till he decides to ditch fitness.
Does the thyroid level in your body affect your system? Do you observe an increase in the body weight every time the thyroid level fluctuates? If the answer for both the questions are yes, then that particular person must enroll himself in the HCG diet course for weight reduction. Research has indicated that the HCG diet is a perfect remedy for all those suffering with hypothyroidism.
