There’s No Place Like Home

Many seniors, whether they need short term or long-term care, prefer remaining in a place most familiar to them – their home. By removing elderly loved ones from their home we often take away years of memories, relationships with neighbors and communities which can lead to a decline in health and leave them feeling sad and isolated. If Mom or Dad is willing to explore the idea of home care, involve them in the process and remember to take it slow at first. Home is still the safest place to receive care!

The Most Important Factor for Immune Resilience

Proper sleep. Immune cells that fight off infections, like natural killer cells and T-cells, are activated when you sleep. If you do not naturally wake up on time (without an alarm clock) reassess the time you’re going to bed. If you wake up during the night feeling hungry, shaky, or anxious your blood sugar may be low. Avoid skipping meals and ensure you’re not overeating sugar without adequate protein and fats in your diet. If you’re waking up frequently to urinate check your daily sodium intake. And consider a midday nap when you do not have a good night’s rest.

Product Review: Meta Patch

The Meta Patch optimizes energy metabolism in a totally drug-free, non-invasive way. The brain plays a central role in balancing and regulating energy metabolism and integrates information about energy intake and body energy stores. This is transferred to specialized neurons in the hypothalamus and brainstem. To maintain energy homeostasis (keeping a stable environment), the brain regulates various aspects of body metabolism. The Meta Patch helps optimize neuroplasticity and the harmonization of this communication loop between the hypothalamus and brainstem by generating neuro-signals that are decoded by the central nervous system, based on the “pattern theory” of haptic neuro coding.

Protect Teeth from Acid Damage

Dental erosion is a form of tooth wear – where enamel and then dentin is worn down. It is defined as irreversible damage to the teeth caused by chemicals (usually acids). This acid can come from outside sources (e.g., food and drink) or from inside the body. External sources of acids include fruits and fruit juices (particularly citrus), soft drinks, sports drinks, wine, and vinegar. Dental erosion is preventable. The use of a straw can help keep acidic drinks away from the teeth. Rinsing with mouthwash or water after eating can help neutralize the acid exposed to your teeth and gums.
