All-natural Teeth Whitening

All-Natural Teeth whitening methods:  BY DR. BURHENNE Teeth stains and yellowing happen to everyone. Whether it’s due to genetics, damage, or surface stains from foods and beverages. The reality is that over time, staining occurs. Meanwhile, aging can cause yellowing, even if your dental hygiene routine has been perfect. And while it is possible to whiten teeth and eliminate some of this discoloration, it’s important to remember that many teeth whitening methods can cause damage to the teeth. Some all-natural methods are better than conventional whitening treatments that can potentially damage the gums. But even natural teeth whitening methods can cause damage to the teeth, eroding the enamel and potentially causing more damage—and staining—in the future.

The Duck’s Nest and Sorrow

For days in the early spring I watched a mallard duck and his partner sitting on the road behind the truck wash. The long weekend brought me into my back yard where I notice I had a new friend. A mallard duck. Each time I went into my back yard she would fly away from my garden gate. I discovered she was sitting on 7 eggs.

Nellie was gone.  My friend Ron had lent me his camouflage video camera to record Nellie and her…

6 self-renewal suggestions for the busy practitioner

6 self-renewal suggestions for the busy practitioner June 12, 2018 By Jules Torti Self-care. Self-renewal. They are vague concepts we push on our clients for their ‘take-home’ after a massage treatment. It all seems so achievable at the moment – but where to begin? Axe-throwing? A grown-up bouncy castle? As massage therapists, are we taking note of our own homework? Are we implementing our grand ideas for meditation and Epsom soaks? A quick poll among colleagues usually reveals how infrequently we follow our own advice. When did you last have a massage? Sleep-in? Exercise four times a week? Eat mindfully? It all starts with a ‘To Don’t’ list. As a Virgo, I’m notorious for making lists. It’s my default setting. To Don’t lists are even more satisfying, though, because they give you permission to say no and be the centre of attention. Don’t turn on your phone. Don’t get sucked…
