Rethinking Oral Health Care: A Homemade Toothpaste Recipe for Tooth Remineralization

Rethinking Oral Health Care: A Homemade Toothpaste Recipe for Tooth Remineralization
Several years ago, I started to question some of the ingredients in commercial toothpastes as well as the approach of modern dentistry in general. I view some modern dentistry practices as appropriate and beneficial. Consider, though, that the foundation of today’s dental philosophy is similar to the mainstream medical model in that it focuses on treatment and not prevention. I believe the focus of dentistry (like medicine) should be prevention of decay and disease through sound nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. This begins in utero (even pre-conception), when the teeth and jaw structure are formed, is well established through breastfeeding, and must be adhered to for one’s lifetime. Avoiding dental decay and disease through diet is challenging, because it means one must stray far from the standard American diet. Spark Health has a DIY Dental eCourse available. Remineralization When most dentists detect a cavity, they suggest filling it, usually without thinking twice. A Safer Alternative

Use these five natural supplements to detox your body of toxic GMO foods (NaturalNews) If you eat out at restaurants, purchase non-organic or processed foods from the grocery store, or even take vitamin supplements that have not been consciously crafted with quality ingredients, chances are you are routinely ingesting genetically modified organisms (GMOs) without even knowing it. And unless you take the time to regularly detoxify these unnatural poisons, they may be building up inside your body and triggering alterations in your natural gene expression, which could eventually lead to chronic illness and even death. This is why it is vitally important to regularly cleanse and detoxify your body of transgenic materials that may be damaging the natural flora balance in your gut, as well as poisoning your blood, causing gastrointestinal upset, and triggering neurological damage, among other conditions. Here are five natural supplements you can use to help detoxify your body of harmful GMOs, and ultimately restore a healthy balance to your mind and body.

10 Easy Steps to Turn Any Recipe into a Real Food Recipe I had an epiphany the other day. Ever since I started eating real food, I’ve stayed far away from where my meal inspiration used to come from (if not picked up straight from the freezer aisle) — recipes from magazines, websites, and TV shows with eye-rollingly-typical “healthy” fare. Ingredients like, “Bouillon cubes,” and “Heart-healthy canola oil,” and “Fat-free sour cream” Barf. Barf. Barf. So just the other day, when I really needed to figure out what to do with a pack of grass-fed short ribs I had bought, I decided I’d go ahead and check out one of my old standard recipe sites, at least to get some ideas. So, I’ve figured out a little system. Do your favorite recipes call for any of the following? Switch them out, or fix them up, with these ten easy solutions! 1. Even if you spring for “whole wheat” flour bought at the store, that stuff really isn’t what it seems. You see, grains in and of themselves are not the friendliest of foods. 2. Typically dairy products. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Size zero Size zero or 0 is a women's clothing size in the US catalog sizes system. Size 0 and 00 were invented due to the changing of clothing sizes over time (referred to as vanity sizing or size inflation), which has caused the adoption of lower numbers. Modern size 0 clothing, depending on brand and style, fits measurements of chest-stomach-hips from 30-22-32 inches (76-56-81 cm) to 33-25-35 inches (84-64-89 cm). Size 00 can be anywhere from 0.5 to 2 inches (1 to 5 cm) smaller than size 0.[1][2] Size zero often refers to extremely thin individuals (especially women and adolescent girls), or trends associated with them.

How Three Little Bottles Make all the Difference in the World.... Three Bottles. One large, one medium, and one small, and they are the heavy hitters in our medicine cabinet. No kidding. My children ask for them. My husband expects them. I make tons of items for our household from them. And people who dont know us, or what we do, or how we live our lives, will most likely think we are crazy. You see, we are a culture that is always looking for the next quick fix. And a lot of it has to do with how often we are fed this mantra that we are incapable, uneducated, or simple unable to help or heal ourselves. The pharmaceutical industry thrives on that lie. To to the tune of billions of dollars per year. Now, quick disclaimer, I want you to understand I absolutely believe that modern medicine has a place. But we have become so disconnected from anything to help ourselves in our society, coming to distrust so many of the things that our mothers and grandmothers, and even beyond that, considered common and everyday things, that it really is incredibly sad.

Welcome - My Body Gallery - What Real Women Look Like My Body StoriesThe Reality of Body-Love I have identified myself as fat my entire life. I was no older than seven when this first was a realization. Everyone in my family was big, and a lot of this identity for myself had to do with their own self-image problems and years of shaming being passed down. I was on diets from a very early age, and remember keenly always being conscious of how far from the doctor's BMI chart I actually was. Struggling, ongoing, with health issues that reduced my ability to be active compounded the issue. EveryBODY I was a "big girl" most of my life. View MoreSubmit Story NewsPlease Read This! This site is here as an accurate reflection of what real women look like. Why? A recent study found that 95% of non-eating disordered women overestimate the size of their hips by 16% and their waists by 25%, yet the same women were able to correctly estimate the width of a box.

Real Food on a Budget: 25 Tips to Make Eating Healthy Affordable | The Mommypotamus | organic SAHM sharing her family stories and recipes Take A Hyperventilating Walrus . . . Some dingy fluorescent lights, and a pair of stilts and you’ve pretty much got my best copycat impression of the Cici’s Pizza greeter that welcomed us to pizza binge delirium. As we walked down the condiment aisle of the local grocery store, I bellowed, “Welcome to Cici’s! Thank you for coming!” I did it again as we passed the Heinz ketchup, strolled by the meats gassed with carbon dioxide, and one more time as we arrived to our final destination: the cookie dough aisle. It was Friday night, and all we “needed” before heading home from our pizza fest was a sausage-shaped tube of enriched wheat flour, sugar, and partially hydrogenated soybean oil . . . aka Pillsbury’s chocolate chip cookies. Back then, I thought the cost of convenience was nothing more than pennies, which I was more than happy to push bit by bit into the automatic checkout machine while Daddypotamus counted floor tiles.
