Introduction to Essential Oils I’ve gotten quite a few questions about what essential oils are and what they’re used for. After responding to numerous emails, I thought it would be helpful to share this information with everyone! What are essential oils? Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids distilled from plants, flowers, or trees. As with many products, essential oils are made in different grades, or levels of quality. Synthetic oils or fragrance oils are the lowest quality and are typically used in lotions or perfumes. Because they are so concentrated, you only need a few drops to be effective. How do you use them? Essential oils are my first line of defense. And a single essential oil can be used in a variety of ways, which saves you money instead of buying multiple products. For example: I don’t need to buy “Baby Bedtime Bath” for Little Peanut–I just add a bit of lavender oil to her bath water. A few reminders: Treat essential oils with respect. or fractionated coconut oil. Would you like to know more?

Affordable Dental Implants in Springfield Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.

Tooth Extraction in Springfield After all other options have been explored, Dr. Christine Karapetian would recommend a tooth extraction only in the most extreme of cases where another method of saving the tooth is not available. General Procedure When restoration procedures such as root canal therapy, crowns, or fillings are not enough to save a tooth, it may need to be pulled, or extracted. Tooth extraction procedures today are far less painful than ever before, thanks to powerful anesthetics and sedatives. Before a tooth is extracted, the area surrounding the tooth is numbed with a topical/and or injectable anesthetic. Patients with extracted teeth sometimes need to take an antibiotic, and at the very least, take precautions following the procedure to ensure that infection doesn't occur. Smoking, vigorous brushing and rinsing, and drinking liquids through straws are discouraged during the post-operative period because they hinder healing and may cause the wound to open.

Test Of Three In ancient Greece (469 - 399 BC), Socrates was widely lauded for his wisdom. One day the great philosopher came upon an acquaintance, who ran up to him excitedly and said, "Socrates, do you know what I just heard about one of your students?" "Wait a moment," Socrates replied. "Before you tell me, I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Test of Three." "Test of Three?" "That's correct," Socrates continued. "No," the man replied, "actually I just heard about it." "All right," said Socrates. "No, on the contrary..." "So," Socrates continued, "you want to tell me something bad about him even though you're not certain it's true?" The man shrugged, a little embarrassed. Socrates continued, "You may still pass though because there is a third test - the filter of Usefulness. "No, not really..." "Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?" The man was defeated and ashamed and said no more.

Définition de la médecine dentaire holistique La médecine dentaire holistique se distingue surtout de la dentisterie traditionnelle par le fait qu’elle n’utilise ni mercure ni fluor. Elle insiste également sur l’utilisation de matériaux biocompatibles pour fabriquer les obturations des caries. De plus, elle prend en considération tous les aspects de la santé de l’individu. Selon la logique de la médecine dentaire holistique, une carie dentaire ou un abcès signale un déséquilibre plus général dans l’organisme, et une dent malade peut être à l’origine de problèmes ailleurs dans le corps. La médecine dentaire holistique privilégie également une saine alimentation et diverses approches complémentaires, comme l’homéopathie, l’aromathérapie, la médecine énergétique et l’ostéopathie, pour traiter les problèmes de santé. En ce qui concerne la fluoration de l’eau, mentionnons que les dentistes holistiques croient que les différentes études sont trop contradictoires pour qu’on puisse être vraiment sûr de son innocuité.

Go On A Blind Date... With A Book They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover — but what about the title, author and plot? In a bid to lure customers back from the ebook market, one plucky book store has begun selling novels that are completely wrapped in brown paper. A few vague words are your only hint to what lies within… It’s no secret that book stores are doing it tough, with Collins, Angus & Robinson and Borders all shutting up shops in recent years. “A lot of people who come into our store don’t know what they want to buy so they just browse or ask for a recommendation,” explained Ryan, an Elizabeth’s Bookshop employee from the Pitt Street store in Sydney. “One of our staff members thought it would be a good idea to set up a kind of lucky-dip table where you get to pick a book at random. All ‘blind date’ book covers are completely covered in brown paper — with just a few vague word cues scrawled on the front to give you an idea about the book’s content. Would you buy a book completely unseen?
