Protect Your Ears in Water

The prevention of water entering the ear canal, whether from swimming or showering, is an important consideration. Oto Hearing Products produces floatable swim molds, which can prevent infections or other problems before they start, such as hearing loss at a later stage. By sealing the entrance to the ear canal, waterproof earplugs keep water out of the sensitive region inside the ear canal. Swim molds are ideal for water sports, recreational swimming, daily showering, and individuals who suffer from chronic ear infections. They are manufactured from a soft, 100% floatable silicone, which is comfortable to wear and provides a tight seal to make sure no water enters the ear.

Should You Consider Dentures?

If you think you’ll never need dentures because you take good care of your teeth, then it may surprise you that more than one in every five Canadians over the age of 60 have no natural teeth remaining. If you’ve already lost a tooth or several teeth, the need for dentures is immediate. The more time you go without dentures, the more risk you run of losing additional teeth. Without the support of all your teeth, the remaining healthy teeth shift faster and become weaker. Other warning signs that dentures may be in your future are: red and swollen gums, loose or moving teeth or difficulty chewing food.

Acupuncture for Menopause Symptoms

Menopause can cause a number of uncomfortable emotional and physical symptoms, including hot flashes, sleep disturbances, and mood changes.

Women who received acupuncture sessions during the studies reported less severe and less frequent day and night sweats, general sweating, sleep problems, emotional and physical symptoms, and skin and hair problems compared to women who did not have acupuncture sessions during the studies.
