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. Before we discuss teeth whitening methods let’s examine how teeth become discolored in the first place. What really causes dental stains and yellow teeth? The first thing to understand is that there are two parts to a tooth—the…

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. I learned a lot how she covered up her nest with feathers and leaves. I watched daily to be sure that “Nellie” was sitting on her eggs. She would never stay in her nest when I worked in my yard. On Saturday June 16 I came home from Battle River Ranch and checked on Nellie. Sadness. Disappointment. The nest was destroyed and 2 eggs were broken. 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…

When do you use Tea Tree Oil?

When do you use Tea Tree Oil? Here are some great uses for tea tree oil. Acne Treatment Tea tree oil can be used as a preventative measure, but more impressively as a cure when it comes to those dreaded pimples. It serves as a natural alternative for over the counter products, and possesses unique disinfecting and soothing properties which won’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Dab it on – for a quick spot-reduction, pour a few drops onto a cotton bud or pad, and dab the affected area. Don’t rinse for at least a few hours, ideally leave overnight. The oil should easily penetrate into the sebaceous glands and unblock them, wiping out infection-causing bacteria and reducing redness and swelling. Slather it on – Add a few drops to a face mask, preferably clay, and slather it on. Ideally leave it for 20 minutes before rinsing. Pat face…
