Not only cigarettes and coffee can spoil natural whiteness of our teeth. Food that you eat everyday can also do this. There is a list of certain products that can give your teeth yellow color. Some of them are really harmful, and not only for teeth and their removal from your daily menu can do only good. But not all of them are dangerous – some are useful, have lots of vitamins and minerals, and if you exclude them from your nutrition, it won’t do any good to your health. Fortunately, there are ways to minimize the harm they bring.
So, the information below can make you aware of the products that can make your teeth yellow and can be a guide to improving your menu to save your teeth from getting yellow.
1. Black tea. It contains tanine that leaves stains on your teeth. It is in the head of the list. Things are getting worse when you combine it with other products from that list because it makes their coloring influence stronger. So it’s better to drink green tea instead, it doesn’t have such aggressive qualities, but has a number of useful components.
2. Cola drinks, soda and sport beverages. They contain different acids that ruin the enamel of teeth. Interesting that sport drinks are even more dangerous than others, because they contain more acids.
3. Sweet candies. Even children know that sugar is the worst enemy for our teeth. But it’s not the only point. Also time matters – the longer you chew or suck a candy, the more harm it brings. And it concerns all of the products in this list.
4. Wine, red and white. Both of them contain tanine, about whose harmful qualities you already know.
5. Bright-colored sauces. Dental enamel’s structure has pores, where they can stay and share their coloring with teeth.
6. Spices. The same thing about spices that have bright colors too.
7. Fruits and fruit juices. They bring a lot of profit to us, so they mustn’t be removed from menu by any circumstances.
What to do to minimize those unwanted effect? Perhaps you heard a popular recommendation to chew a sugar-free chewing gum after you’ve eaten. But it’s a myth and very dangerous myth, because such gums contain sugar substitutes that are also dangerous for teeth. There are two ways of protecting your teeth color. First – rinse your mouth with water, it will wash away acid and coloring elements. Second – after rinsing try to cover your teeth with saliva; it is a natural protection for our mouth. If you make these two simple procedures a habit, your teeth will stay white much longer. Protect the white color of your teeth and reduce chances on undergoing teeth whitening procedures, which are rather expensive.…
In studying Universal Laws of Abundance, it is vital to take care to not neglect the health and wellness aspect of the law. When individuals choose to study Divine Laws such as, the Law of Giving, the Law Attraction, the Law of Abundance, an eagerness to see the manifestation of the material aspect of wealth is usually the driving force. But how many realize that if one fails to achieve good health or neglects to understand the importance of having an alkaline living food diet, then the abundance and enjoyment of money will be short lived? Becoming holistic encompasses the "whole" self uniting in harmony with each part-body, mind, and spirit.
Think of your body the way a farmer tills the soil. Your body, just like the soil of the earth, extracts nutrients from the food it's given. Enzymes, which are found in (living and raw) foods, aid in the process of digestion (transporting nutrients to the cells). By choosing alkaline rich foods, (foods with a ph level of 7.0 or higher), these foods contain vital and living enzymes which aid in the digestion and the absorption of nutrients. These nutrients are extracted from the food by the body through the process of assimilation. If the food is alive, then the process of digestion is easier. The nutrients are then attributed to the cells and then the healing of the body begins.
"Let thy food be thy medicine" is a proverb that has been used in indigenous cultures all over the world for thousands of years. But if the food is void of nutrition, then the healing process is compromised. According to Wellness Educator, Carmellita Brown:
"For the average person, 80% percent of what we eat has no nutritional value. About 40% of the foods we consume are meats and animal products such as milk, cheese, butter, which have nutrients, but these nutrients do not assimilate well In the Human body. We eat it because we enjoy the way it tastes and because it gives us a temporary sense of fullness. The other 40% is processed foods such as pastas, breads, canned foods, and frozen foods. Of what we eat is actually raw fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. This ratio not only promotes anaerobic pathogens, it also causes obesity, nerve damage, allergies, and stress. "
Making simple dietary changes need not be painful. For many of us, there is a very real fear of becoming socially isolated and deprived of good tasting food because of changes in dietary choices. Taste is important and does not have to be discarded when making a selection of good healthy foods. The days of the Scarsdale Diet are over. You do not have to eat bland, tasteless, putrid looking foods in order to achieve optimal health. Here is a recipe that includes a few key foods that can be incorporated into any diet:
1 head of red leaf lettuce
2 whole tomatoes
1 clove of garlic
1 teaspoon of …
You often hear how laughter is the best medicine, and for some people chocolate or multivitamins fit the bill instead. Each person is unique and so is his or her preferred form of medicine. What about learning something new as a form of medicine?
Often there are parts of personality, talents, and health that haven’t been expressed, at least in a while, and are just waiting to be let out. Everyone has different talents, so the key to unlocking these hidden treasures is unique to you. It could be that drawing or painting offers a form of expression that you enjoy. Writing stories, or a blog. Dancing or singing. Someone who is good at cooking dinner might try out desserts or baking instead. How about learning piano or guitar? A new sport?
Learning something new helps us feel adventure in life, which is very much a part of feeling healthy and active. When daily work and chores build up, trying something new shakes things up and encourages us to be in better tune with ourselves in many different ways–including our health. It could be that you have a talent you have exercised before, and maybe it’d be fun to take it to a new level in some way.
The adventure of learning something new can be frustrating at first, and even this feeling can contribute to your health. People can find that the frustration they experience in a new activity is one they’re dealing with on a larger level too in other parts of life. Tackling the challenge through the new learning experience can jump start changes in other areas of life too. Once you take the first step, you never know where it will lead you.
Just as life is a journey, so is health. These two experiences are woven together so that whatever you do to improve one area often improves the other one as well. Learning something new sparks both your body and your mind in new ways, impacting both your health and your life.
So, what have you been wanting to learn or try out lately that you haven’t had a chance to express yet? Maybe you’ve thought about it and it’s felt a little scary to go for it. As the season shifts slowly from winter toward spring, jump into this challenge anyway and see what happens. Enjoy the new adventure, expressing your talents, and the changes it brings to your life and your health!…
Make a fitness goal
Only people who get to their destination are those with the defined target from the start. When you do not have a definite goal in mind, there is the tendency to go off track in your life adventure, as the only result of unplanned everyday living is confusion. No matter how small your goal is, it will get you focused on something worthwhile for a fulfilling day. It could be to achieve 10 push-ups every morning before work or eat to a healthy meal for breakfast. Just have a goal to engage you.
Be careful what you think
Our thoughts are powerful, and it has been proven that what we believe is what we become. You are sick only when you feel so; Well and healthy when you think you are. Above all, make your thoughts resonate what you really want in life.
Make it easy, because life is easy
Nothing gets complicated unless you make it so. You know what you need, create the time, create the action and act without delay. There are fitness gyms around, locate one and get in their program. It can be weekend only; It can be every day, go for what is convenient for you. Nothing is a problem except doing nothing. If you are a paid worker, get a house closer to work, located resources around your home to get what you want with ease, including a gym to exercise, or get your workout kits and do it at home. Life is not a race!
Eat well, eliminate foods not good for your fitness goal
You are what you eat. The world does not lack information anymore; It is information that requires people. Get the information you need about eating healthy. You do not know where to get the information; Did I hear you say that? OK, you have a phone, do not you? The information is already on your phone, look for it. Stop taking soda or juices with lots of sugar; You do not need it more than you need water, a universal body coolant! Avoid all foods injurious to your health, it's your responsibility to know them and stop!
Try something new for a change
The workout is not cast only in heavy lifting, continuous running, climbing the mountains or 5k run to be fit, its starts with small things that get you focused, and free your mind from worries and idleness. Try things like yoga, meditation, dancing with friends and family, hearty laughter, giggling and stay on the positive side of life. …
Nails are a protective horn at the end of our most sensitive extremitives: fingers and
Toes. They can often become injured from accidents or crushing weight such as
Heavy walking or running. They can also become infected from bacterial or fungal
Infections as well as separated from the nail bed or chipped from harsh weather.
The nails are often a reflection of our overall health or nutritional deficiencies. Some
Ways to listen to what your nails are trying to tell you are:
O Iron / Protein / Calcium Deficiency = brittle, concave, ridged, white half moons
O Too much salt = external fibrous growths
O Nervousness / hyper thyroid = separation of the nail bed
O Respiratory Difficulties = bluish discoloration
O Bronchial Difficulties = yellowish discoloration
O Anemia = pale nail beds
O Vitamin A Deficiency = peeling nails
O Zinc Deficiency = poor nail growth
O Vegetable Quality Oils Deficiency = thin, brittle nails
O Consumption Extremes in Diet (especially meats and refined foods) = washboard
What we eat actually does affect the appearance of these external parts of our
Bodies. Start paying attention to your hands (and feet!) And feeding your body right.
The food we put in the body affects the health of our nails, but that does not mean to
Completely ignore the food we put ON the body either. Contrary to many fabulously
Smart marketing campaigns you do not need to spend a lot of money on chemically
Enhanced products to experience strength and beauty on your outside.
Natural oils are an excellent way to treat the external condition of the finger and
Toenails. Different oils affect the body differently. A great way to determine what oil
Would suit your body best is to examine your heritage and connect to the
Predominant oil in that part of the world.
Once you have determined which is best for your particular body's need use some
Time in the evening to take a "nail bath" (remember … the skin is our most
Absorbent organ …)
1. Allow your nails to soak in a small bowl of oil or gently rub the oil into the nails
2. Cover with cotton gloves, cotton socks
Top Three Oils to Treat Your Nails Right
1. Coconut Oil: one of the few significant plant sources of lauric acid. This medium
Chain faty acid, which is also found in human milk, enhancements brain function and the
2. Palm Kernel: when unrefined, this high saturation oil is the one of the most stable
Of oils providing strength and ultimate saturation to the skin.
3. Olive Oil: the most stable vegetable oil, high in vitamin E, provides support to the
Liver and gallbladder (yes, no matter how you take it into the body).
Now, take a minute and think about how those chemically enhanced skin and nail
Products are affecting your body …
To your energy and success, Heather …
When I learned I had breast cancer, I decided that I needed to find out as much as I could about how my diet might impact my health. I absorbed everything I would get my hands on that discussed the importance of nutrition in regaining health and preventing a recurrence of cancer. Shortly after I learned I had cancer, I also found out that I am allergic to dairy and eggs. I needed to make changes to my lifestyle – fast.
The first thing to go was dairy. All of the years that I was consuming massive amounts of cheese was taking a toll on my health. Almost immediately upon giving it up, the majority of my migraine headaches disappeared. Another astonishing revelation was when, just as quickly, I no longer needed the Afrin nasal spray I had come to depend on to clear my sinuses for 35 years! I couldn’t leave the house without it. Now my need for it had disappeared. I had no idea that all of these issues were being caused by dairy.
Suddenly it was obvious, but for years I went along consuming dairy and suffering side effects without ever putting the two together. To improve my health on all counts, I realized that I needed to get back to basic, simple foods. No more processed junk foods, no more saturated fats, and no more refined white flours and sugars. So, along with dairy, I cut them out of my life. I now eat a mostly plant-based diet that is rich in nutrients and full of vitamins.
I buy organic when possible to avoid the pesticide and herbicide residues that are so prevalent in conventionally grown produce. I cook my meals from scratch. No more cans, packages or boxes (with a few exceptions). I now use my creativity and Google savvy to put together healthy meal ideas that work for my family. I noticed an immediate improvement to my health. I not only started to lose weight, and ultimately slowly and steadily lost 50 pounds, but I started to feel like my younger self again. More energetic, less achy, clearer skin.
I found that by merging elements from a vegan diet and a raw food lifestyle I could satisfy my family’s needs of eating healthy. The elements that I incorporated from the raw food diet is not only eating more vegetables in their raw state, but also eating foods that are “pure”. In other words, foods that are not processed or otherwise adulterated. They don’t contain chemicals or additives as they are mostly freshly made and consumed. However, it was not feasible to prepare only non-cooked foods 100% or the time. Although, I do try to eat at least 50% raw each day.
I needed to include hot healthy foods into my diet as well. In the northeast the winters are cold and it is just not possible for me to cut out all warm food. As far as veganism, I have eliminated all animal …
It is a travesty, so many people neglect their health and well-being because caring is inconvenient. Managing one’s health requires work and attention, the same effort often given to other areas of a person’s life.
Your job, relationships, and the activities you engage in are undoubtedly important to you. But do you give the same amount of attention and effort to your health? Most people do not, and this is one reason why preventable diseases like Type 2 diabetes and obesity are rampant in our society.
You ought to take care of your body. If avoiding diseases or complications is overshadowed by other priorities, then care for your body for no reason other than to live a better life…
Isn’t this the reason why so many people work hard? Money can be made with an exchange of effort and time. If your health is at risk, your ability to work is compromised, and your life expectancy may be affected. Type 2 diabetes on its own reduces the average life expectancy by up to 10 years. Other complications can suddenly arise and threaten a person’s well-being with more immediate consequences.
The point is there is no more precious resource than your health. Once you realize this, you should stop making excuses for not taking care of your body. Moreover, taking care of your body also implies taking care of your appearance.
While your physique is a component, it is not a vital factor. Weight loss is relevant for many trying to improve their health, but there are often more benefits beneath the surface. Internal health is measured by more than just body weight, even if high body fat is indicative of poor inner well-being. Two individuals may have the same body composition, but one may be healthy while the other is ill. This is why nutrition is so important…
In regards to physical activity, it is essential for everyone to the same degree. There is no avoiding exercise. However, it has so many benefits you should not be avoiding it anyway.
There are other things to keep in mind when taking care of your body, such as…
But you cannot go wrong by starting with healthy eating and making positive changes to your diet plan…
Do it for your body, for your health, and ultimately for your future…

Would you like a restful night of sleep? I mean sleeping like a baby, no insomnia, or waking up in the middle of the night. What about mood elevation, reduced feelings of depression, and stress reduction? What if I told you, that you can reduce chronic pain without medication? A holistic approach to a better quality of life, feel good look good kind of thing. The treatment I am talking about is called Whole Body Cryotherapy.
Cryotherapy is the practice of using cold temperatures to promote natural healing and wellness that dates back to ancient civilizations. Reaching temperatures as low as -120 Celsius (-184ºF), whole body cryotherapy is a fast and effective alternative to traditional ice baths. The treatment has been used for over thirty years in Europe and has made its way to the USA. Athletes use it for faster recovery, muscle soreness alleviation, and overall better performance. Celebrities use it for weight loss and for younger looking skin, due to the increased collagen production after regular use of Cryotherapy.
Allow me to tell you my story how I came across cryotherapy. I have been a fitness trainer for the past ten years. I lift weights regularly and live an active lifestyle. The heavy lifting took a toll on my body and I started suffering from lower back pain. At times, I could hardly bend and performing daily activities became a struggle for me. My sleep was interrupted each time I change a position, and I would feel a sudden lower back spasm. I had to learn how to sleep on my back. I did not like living a limited life, and I went to see a medical doctor. She assured me that it’s just inflammation and prescribed anti-inflammatory medication and muscle relaxers for the course of one month. As I was taking the medication, my pain gradually decreased, and I started feeling normal again. Woohoo, no pain! I was so delighted, but not for long. After some time, the back pain returned. I wasn’t happy. Overly I am a healthy person. I take care of myself by eating wholesome organic diet, I practice mindfulness, do yoga, all the things a health conscientious person does to keep herself at the top performance. Therefore, taking medication for the rest of my life to relieve my lower back pain was not a good solution for me. So, I started researching non traditional ways of alleviating my pain. That’s when I came across an article in a health magazine about cryotherapy. The author was pouring about the benefits of cryotherapy and one of them was inflammation reduction! Inflammation! That is what I have, an inflammation!! Being curious and would try anything at least once, kind of person, I dived into the idea. The closest cryotherapy spa to me was 30 min away. The next day I found myself driving there. I have to be honest, the unknown gets me a little nervous, and the thought of me being in such cold temperatures …
There has been a lot of talk slowly about Resveratrol and it's health benefits. We've all heard the about the studies claiming that red wine is actually good for us and beneficial to our health. In this article, I will describe the known benefits of Resveratrol that I have uncovered after my research and use of the supplement.
Resveratrol is an antioxidant found in the skin of red grapes. The purpose of this antioxidant is to protect the core of the grape from possible damage caused by the environment and several other factors. It turns out that this anti oxidant reacts the same way to the cells of our bodies as it does the core of the grape.
When the cells in our bodies are covered with this antioxidant, it takes the much less effort to have the same results.
When we eat a heavy meal, usually what happens is that our body does not have enough energy to process all the food in the time we would like. So what usually happens is that our body will store the excess of calories instead of processing them. This is when we gain weight.
As soon as the body has time to get back to work processing those unwanted calories, it does. This is the most common reason for a lack of energy.
Reduced Risk Of Disease.
The body is self healing. If we get cut or bruised, the body heals itself. The same thing happens when we get a disease or sickness. The only reason these things do not heal themselves is because the body cells are not strong enough.
These are the most commonly talked about Resveratrol health benefits. …
