Choosing an Orthopedic Brace

Orthopedic braces are medical devices designed to address musculoskeletal issues that may arise from disease, a congenital condition, or an injury. They are used to properly align, correct the position, support, stabilize, and protect certain parts of the body (particularly the muscles, joints, and bones) as they heal from injury or trauma. Orthopedic braces are available for many parts of the body, including knees, shoulders, back, hands, and feet. A qualified medical professional can determine what type of orthopedic brace is ideal for you, as well as the fit, type of support, function, and level of stability or protection.

Matchmaking Testimonial

“I joined Camelot Introductions and found the love of my life! If it wasn’t for Lianne’s persistence, and her innate ability for matching people, then I would still be floundering. On-line dating was a waste of my time. Camelot was exactly what I was looking for – a professional service dedicated to matching people with similar interests and dreams. Getting married in November – I’ve never been happier! Thanks Lianne!”

Home Remedy for Denture Pain

Sometimes dentures can cause pain or discomfort, especially if your dentures are old or ill-fitting. An effective home remedy you could try is using black tea bags! Black Tea is full of tannic acid, an astringent that helps reduce pain, as well as, reduces swelling of the gums. Tannic acid also repels harmful bacteria. Steep a black tea bag in a cup of hot water for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bag and set aside to cool off. Hold it on the affected gum area for 10-15 minutes then rinse your mouth with warm water. Repeat 1-2 times daily. (Note: not intended to replace consultation with a medical professional.)

Cellular Health from the Inside Out

Our ability to stay healthy and have more energy relies on how well our cells function. And the function of every cell in the body relies on something called redox signaling—cellular messages that help protect, rejuvenate, and restore cells. As environmental toxins weaken our defenses, normal cellular function declines, and with it, the body’s ability to produce and maintain a proper balance of redox signaling molecules. Now there is a technology that can create and stabilize active redox signaling molecules in a consumable form. This proprietary process suspends these life-giving molecules in a pristine solution—a first-of-its-kind, cutting-edge health breakthrough. ShopAsea.com

Chiropractic Care for Children

Why would a child need a chiropractic adjustment? Because they have spines and nervous systems, too! Being birthed, growing, learning to crawl, walking, and moving all have major impacts on the body. We are often diligent about getting our children in for other check-ups. Why not make sure their nervous system is functioning optimally, too? Babies and children don’t have the same musculature and ligament development, so they don’t need drastic or aggressive adjustments. Regularly adjusted children benefit from proper spinal and pelvic movement which allows the nervous system to work the best it can, giving them a great chance at a healthy and happy life!

Underarm Harm? Make The Switch!

Are you still using a traditional antiperspirant? Antiperspirants clog up pores and don’t allow the body to properly release the sweat necessary to cool down the body and release toxins (why they’re called anti-perspirants). Not to mention that they’re completely unnecessary for preventing body odor. Sweating is our bodies’ natural way of regulating temperature and releasing toxins, two very crucial jobs. Did you know that sweat isn’t what actually smells? it’s just a mixture of salt and water. What does create that dreaded body odor is when sweat meets the natural bacteria that lives on our skin. Changing this reaction is easily done with natural deodorant.

Get Energized!

Boost your pre or post workout by incorporating chlorophyll-rich greens with Coconut MCT into your daily routine. Studies have shown when taken before exercising, Coconut MCT may reduce lactic acid build up and encourage the body to burn more fat instead of carbs for energy. These can be found in a greens powder formula at your health food store and added to smoothies or water. Taking it in the morning can also make you feel more energized throughout the day. Look for a greens product with Coconut MCT and Maca for sustained energy plus shelf-stable probiotics included to lighten your supplement load!

Benefits of Companionship

Whether it is a close friendship or an intimate relationship, social interaction is needed to prevent health decline in seniors. Loneliness is a risk factor for functional decline in adults over the age of 60. Something as simple as a friendship can enhance aging hearts and strengthen the immune system. Companionship can decrease the physical risk of disease by lowering blood pressure, heart rate, and cholesterol. The psychological benefits include increased self-esteem, decreased stress, and a sense of belonging. If you are finding yourself lonely, while living on your own, you may want to connect with others by joining senior’s fitness classes, activity groups, or learning a new hobby.

Are You Underweight?

Did you know that being underweight and overweight are from the same problem source: ACIDITY. Up to half the nutrients that go into your body can be eaten up by harmful microorganisms that thrive in acidic environments, causing you to be excessively thin. The body is literally wasting away, which can put you at a higher risk of serious illness than an overweight person! But the higher levels of pH of alkaline water can neutralize acid in your bloodstream. This is why it is vital to alkalize your body with pure alkaline water, an alkaline diet and an alkaline lifestyle.

Solving Reading Difficulties

When a student struggles with reading and learning, it is important to first rule out the possibility of a vision problem. Often, this can be an eye coordination problem, which means that your child will pass most vision screenings in school and even at the pediatrician’s office. Vision screenings typically test for how clearly one can see the letters on the eye chart (“20/20”), which is only 1 of 17 visual skills required for reading and learning. If reading is difficult and homework takes longer than it should, be sure to schedule a developmental vision evaluation for your child.
