Dentures and TMJ Disorders

TMJ Disorders, or Temporomandibular Joint Disorders, can sometimes be caused by a misaligned bite. When your dentures no longer fit properly because of ridge resorption and worn down tooth anatomy, this can lead to an incorrect bite, which in turn can cause TMJ pain. Symptoms like headaches, popping in the jaw, difficulty moving the jaw, pain in the jaw, neck pain, dizziness, pain in the ears, ringing in your ears, or even hearing loss could occur. If you experience these symptoms, talk with your denturist to see how they can help with this issue. Make sure to get your dentures checked regularly to prevent further problems.

Clean Ducts for Clean Air

When cleaning your home, don’t forget about your ductwork. Just because you don’t see inside your ducts doesn’t mean you don’t breathe what comes out of them. Each time your heating or air conditioning system comes on, debris in your ducts become airborne, resulting in poor indoor air quality. What are the benefits of duct cleaning?
Having your ducts cleaned helps:
• Improve the air quality in your home.
• Ensure your furnace and air conditioner operate at maximum efficiency. Dirty ventilation systems can lead to clogged air conditioner coils and furnace filters, as well as contaminated blower wheels that could result in a breakdown.

Grief and the Power of ‘Being With’

Whether we have lost a person, a pet, or a home, there is now an empty space where something valuable used to exist. Supporting someone you love through their grief does not require you to know all the right words. It simply requires intentionally showing up. It can be as simple as sitting with someone in silence, checking in after the initial loss, or even creating rituals or ways to honour the grief and loss together over time. “Being with” someone in grief or allowing others to show up for you is the most powerful way to navigate loss without feeling lost.

Stress Handling With Biofeedback

Lately life has been a bit of a roller coaster, to say the least. Anxiety, stress, and worry feel like constant companions. Unmanaged, this can lead to health issues such as trouble sleeping, headaches, depression, and exhaustion. Alternative approaches such as Biofeedback testing and treatment are very effective in handling stress. It detects imbalances, or weaknesses, in the stress handling areas of the body, and in turn, stimulates the affected areas to help the mind and body process and handle stress better. When it comes time to get back to normal activities, make sure that your body and mind are ready to enjoy everything that we’ve been missing.

Living Sustainably: But There’s More…

For decades we have been warned that not changing our wasteful ways to be better stewards of our planet would lead to dire consequences. So, we compost, recycle, lower our thermostats, buy local and more. But there’s one more thing. Your environmental stewardship does not stop when your heart does. Reconsider your end of life plans to include sustainable funeral alternatives. No embalming; local, earth-friendly caskets; no concrete grave boxes are a few examples. Richard Rosin Funeral Director Ltd., your Green Funeral provider, helps guide you in creating a funeral event that is kinder and gentler to our planet.

Calculating Your Healthy Weight

A Government of Canada survey in 2018 revealed that 63% of Canadians are at risk of health problems due to obesity. One way to determine your healthy weight is by calculating your Body Mass Index (BMI). Divide your weight (in kilograms) by your height (in metres squared). A BMI between 18.5 kg/m. sq. and 24.9 kg/m. sq. is considered healthy. Above or below this range is overweight or underweight. Consult a dietitian about healthy eating habits and get enough physical activity to maintain a healthy weight.
