The Hearing Loss/Alzheimer’s Connection

Recent research suggests that improving hearing loss with hearing aids reduces the risk for Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. In 2011, a team of Johns Hopkins medical school researchers discovered a significant association between hearing loss and the risk of developing these unwanted cognitive conditions. The worse someone’s hearing gets, the greater their risk of developing Alzheimer’s or dementia. The researchers believe their findings could have substantial implications for individuals and public health because hearing loss is treatable with hearing instruments. These findings underscore how important regular hearing tests are as part of preventative health care.

The Power of Touch

There are approximately 5 million touch receptors in your skin and 3000 on the tip of your finger. Whenever we get touched or when we receive a massage, our body releases endorphins that are natural pain- killers. Massage not only helps us relax, but it also gives our immune system a boost! Receiving a 45-minute massage has been found to increase the number of white blood cells that help defend the body from disease. Do you suffer from sleep problems? 60 minutes of massage have the same effect on your body as 7 to 8 hours of good sleep.

Meeting Family Dental Needs

Finding a dentist that can meet the needs of all members of your family is important. Kids often need different dental care than their parents do, whether it’s catching potential problems early or helping kids through losing their first teeth. Parents may be looking for advice on dental work or teeth whitening products for themselves. Whatever their dental needs may be, families often need flexibility when it comes to appointment scheduling and a dental team that can be there for sudden emergencies. Look for a dentist who has great rapport with the whole family, from youngest to oldest!

Mediterranean Health Principles

Research has shown that following a Mediterranean diet can reduce the chance of developing conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. The individual foods within the diet are particularly beneficial to health – using a wide range of organic fruits, vegetables, nuts and herbs gives the body maximum access to sources of vitamins, minerals and nutrients. The Mediterranean Diet offers a scientifically researched, affordable, balanced and health-promoting lifestyle choice. Help reduce your risk of a premature death and increase the chance of a healthy retirement.

Benefits of Around The Clock Care

There may come a time when you or someone you love requires full-time care and support at home. Around the clock care is ideal for those coming home from the hospital after surgery, suffering from a debilitating condition, or even for family caregivers who require time away. Ensure your loved one has someone to assist them with the activities of everyday life with personal, consistent, one-to-one attention and assistance. Have peace of mind knowing there’s 24-hr companionship, and no need to worry about waiting for help to arrive if something goes wrong.

Don’t Be an Obesity Statistic

About 26.7% of Canadians were obese in 2015, with projections that it will be 34% by 2025. This is a serious burden to the healthcare system. Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions, associated with obesity and inactivity, that increases the risk of high blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. Take stock of all of the sources of simple carbs in your diet, including staples like white potatoes, white flour, white rice, and pasta, as well as any obvious junk food. Favour instead low-starch and high-fibre vegetables, and get 20-30 minutes of dedicated exercise per day to reduce obesity risk.

Don’t Let Missing Teeth Affect Your Life

Do you hide your mouth because you feel embarrassed about missing teeth? Missing teeth not only affects your general health and appearance, it may also contribute to depression and low self-esteem. Social embarrassment as a result of missing teeth and poorly fitting dentures may result in people avoiding social interactions. Don’t let tooth loss or improperly fitting dentures affect the quality of your life. Your denturist can explain the best ways to restore the function and appearance of your smile. Properly fitting dentures can help restore your self-esteem and bring back your smile.

Why Use Energy Healing?

We all develop emotional and energetic attachments that can cause us suffering and hold us back from healing, growing, and making major leaps in our lives. These attachments disrupt the optimal flow of energy and magnetism through and around your body. If left untreated, this can lead to bigger problems, even physical disease. Reiki and other energy-healing modalities, like laser-light, sound, and crystal therapy, work to remove blockages, repair damaged and weakened spots, and increase the energetic flow of light through your system, creating a sense of wholeness and peace that allows you to move forward with grace and confidence.

Boosting Your Body’s Biofeedback

In the metatarsal part of your foot (the ball of your foot), you have over 10,000 receptors, each designed to give biofeedback to your brain. This feedback system is your neurological system. The brain uses that feedback to create homeostasis, or balance in your body of your various biological systems. VoxxLife’s HPT technology is based on decades of research and improves that biofeedback so your brain can better achieve homeostasis. By improving homeostasis in the brain, you put your body’s “self-healing mechanism” in the best position to work on your overall wellness.
