Financial Fitness – Sell ‘N Stay

A relatively new financial offering, residential sale and leaseback (aka Sell ’n STAY) allows homeowners to leverage the equity they have built up in their home without having to leave it, since they can sell their home and lease it back.

Reverse mortgages often have age restrictions, while HELOC loans often have credit restrictions. Sell ’n STAY offers more flexibility. 2) It’s a good option for those who are more concerned with a stable place to live than with owning a home.

A Good Night’s Sleep – Naturally!

A good night’s sleep does not come from a bottle because sleeping pills are not able to create natural, good quality, deep and refreshing sleep.

Interestingly, people who take sleeping pills are very often dissatisfied with their sleep despite taking one or more sleeping pills. On top of that, sleeping pills have longterm consequences.

Muscular Dystrophy Awareness Month

Muscular Dystrophy is a term used to describe a group of more than 160 different neuromuscular disorders characterized by progressive deterioration of muscle strength. The causes, symptoms, severity and progression vary depending on the exact diagnosis and the individual. While some types of neuromuscular disorders are first evident in infancy, other types may not appear until later in life. People diagnosed with a neuromuscular disorder may lose the ability to do things that are often taken for granted, like brushing their teeth, feeding themselves or climbing stairs. There’s no cure for muscular dystrophy. But medications and therapy can help manage symptoms and slow the course of the disease.

What is Computerized Biofeedback?

Computerized Biofeedback testing and Bioresonance treatment is a highly effective way of testing and treating the body. This computerized analysis identifies underlying imbalances in organs and tissues. It also identifies impurities such as, chemicals, metals, toxins, yeasts and viruses, that can cause or trigger health problems. Additionally, the testing will indicate if there is a deficiency of vitamins, minerals and proteins in the body. If an imbalance, deficiency or impurity is identified, they can then be treated with a Bioresonance wave or frequency. This wave helps to stimulate correction of the affected area or imbalance, to help your body function optimally.

Maintaining good oral health isn’t just about keeping your teeth and gums healthy – it can have an impact on the rest of your body as well. Research suggests that a buildup of dental plaque can be linked to other health issues, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes complications, and even various types of infections.

It’s important to see your dentist regularly to ensure your teeth, gums, and other oral tissue are in tip-top shape. Call Holt Dental so Dr. Holt and his team can support you and your oral health.
