Personal Story about oral health

mouth

Here is a great message that a friend sent to me recently:

Julie,
Just had to share a result I found using T36-C5 tea tree oil.

I develop really awful canker sore in my mouth. They can take weeks to heal, and in the meantime make eating and talking painful. I had one that was becoming worse as days passed. My dentist had advised using Neosporin if the sore was close to the outside lip. Instead I dabbed T36-C5 on the sore with a Q-tip, and within an hour the pain was gone although the sore looked the same. The second night I dabbed again, and when I woke up–presto–no more sore. I also used (your brand’s) mouthwash which abated pain temporarily, but the tea tree oil performed a miracle. I have used many different solutions- some homemade, some not- to resolve a canker sore, but never have I found one that works so quickly.

Just wanted to share.

Important Information for Pregnant Women

Little Girl Kissing New Sibling to Be

Omega-3 fatty acids are a good kind of fat. They’re good for both you and your baby during pregnancy. There are three main kinds: (Their names are really long, so it’s OK to just use the letters.)

Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). This kind can’t be produced by your body. You have to get it through foods, like walnuts and soybeans.

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). This kind helps your baby’s brain and eyes develop in the womb. Your body makes it on its own, but the best way to get it is through food or a supplement. A supplement is a product you take to make up for certain nutrients that you don’t get enough of in the foods you eat. For example, you can take a DHA supplement.

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Like DHA, your body also makes this kind, but it’s best to get it through food or a supplement.

HARMFUL TO HUMANS

clorox wipes

If you are a parent of an elementary school child, chances are that “wipes” are on your back-to-school list. But that is INSANE! Check the back of the canister – WARNING: HARMFUL TO HUMANS! Seriously? I’m pretty sure my 7 & 9 year olds are human (most of the time at least)….I refuse to send this dangerous product to school with them – for their safety AND the other kids in the class. Personally, I will give my kids’ teachers an all-natural product that is EPA approved as a disinfectant. It’ll still do the job, but totally safe!

Dangers in Our Kids’ Classrooms

We need to be PROACTIVE when it comes to our kids’ health and safety. There are toxic chemicals being used every day in classrooms – as parents we need to create the change to better/safer non-toxic cleaners! At the start of every school year, I buy green cleaners for my kids’ teachers – I have found the best ones! (EPA approved to kill 99.9% of all germs, including H1N1!)

LICE! OH NO!

lice

Unfortunately, kids get lice…it’s horrible!  But worse than the lice themselves is the TREATMENT!  One of the common treatments is lice shampoo containing LINDANE (I encourage you to google on “dangers of lindane” before using this product!)  The least side affects are skin rash and irritation.  Even worse is that lindane has been linked to neurological damage causing seizures and some believe it is responsible for the increase in leukemia cases!  The most scary fact is that lindane has been banned for use in agricultural situations, yet it is still being used as a treatment on kids!!!  UGH!  There IS a better way!  Use a shampoo that contains all-natural TEA TREE OIL – this not only kills lice, but it deters them in the first place!  I have been using an all-natural shampoo containing tea tree oil for my kids for years and I love it!  (And my kids have NEVER had lice I am very relieved to say!)
