How’s Your Sleep Posture?

You spend nearly 1/3 of our lifetime sleeping, making your sleep posture extremely important to your daily wellbeing. Ideally, your head should remain in a neutral position. When side sleeping, if the pillow is too thick or thin, the neck becomes side flexed with one side being compressed while the other side is stretched; this can lead to compressed nerves. “Head forward posture” which is a jutting forward of the chin, is becoming more prominent with increased cell phone usage. Add to that a back sleeper with more than one pillow, the neck muscles are in a constant state of contraction trying to return to their normal length. Being pro-active could save you from a real “pain in the neck” later.

Medical Cannabis & Pain Relief

More and more people are looking for natural ways to relieve pain caused by a variety of health conditions. Medical cannabis in many forms is becoming an increasingly popular option for those looking for help to ease their chronic pain. Cannabis contains compounds like cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which may relieve pain, nausea, and other types of symptoms. THC is similar to the cannabinoid chemicals that occur naturally in our bodies and stimulates the brain’s cannabinoid receptors when smoked, vaped, or ingested. CBD also interacts with pain receptors in the brain to provide pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects.

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.
You may have already tried various strategies to manage sleeping problems or taking one or more medications to help you fall asleep or stay asleep. 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. If you want deep, refreshing sleep, take a fresh approach. The research and medical community rank Cognitive behaviour therapy for sleep, which involves no remedies, the most effective and safest strategy. Happy zzzz!

Healthy Mouth, Healthy Life

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. Brushing and flossing away dental plaque each day can help keep buildup under control and limit your risk of other issues linked to poor oral health. 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.

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.

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.

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.
