Tummy ache?

When you know that it's not because of something you just ate, check your mouthwash. Yeah, you read it right. Some mouth rinses and toothpastes contain zinc to help freshen breath and fight tartar; the mineral has also been found in dental adhesives. Too much of this can be toxic and you may experience feeling nauseous, dizzy and pain in the stomach. And if you're taking multivitamins containing zinc or eat zinc fortified cereal in addition to using zinc containing mouthwash or toothpaste, you can easily race past the recommended 8 mg a day. Try to avoid mouthwashes and toothpastes with this mineral. Read the labels and look for zinc citrate trihydrate.

Breast Cancer Info Saves Lives

There have been a lot of cases of breast cancer cases in the family so I make it a point that all of us ladies who are of age, have regular mammograms. I also make it a point that all of us are well informed about the disease so we can at least prevent it. I believe that with early detection, there is a greater chance of surviving from the dreaded disease. Had we known earlier that my husband's aunt had breast cancer, she would have lived longer. This is the reason why I always look for breast cancer info. Understanding what changes women go through as they age, will help you detect the cancer early on.

As I mentioned earlier, regular mammograms is a must to keep breast cancer at bay. But don't just go and ask for a mammogram, you should also know when you should have it to get accurate results. Before you schedule for one, check your menstrual cycle. Experts say the first week of the cycle for women aged 35 and above is the best time for best cancer screening. This is the time when breast density is at its lowest so malignancies are easier to detect.

Proper diet and regular exercise is also a must to keep your body strong and healthy. Seven or more servings of fruits and vegetables daily will not only lower your risk of breast cancer but with other diseases as well. Try to include dark leafy greens, carrots, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts and tomatoes in your diet. These veggies are the superstars at fighting cancer. Cherries, berries and all the citrus fruits are big time cancer fighters. It's best to eat the veggies raw or slightly cooked  because according to experts, some of the phytochemicals believed to protect us against breast cancer are destroyed by heat.

There are more things you can do to avoid the Big C and I wish I have all the time now to write them all. I promise to share more in the articles to follow. Meanwhile, you can click on link for more information about breast cancer.

It is true that nowadays we see a lot of men, younger and oozing with sex appeal, sporting no hair at all but the truth is, not all men can get away with being bald. For those of us who do not look good without hair, hair systems and men’s wigs seem to be the next best solution. But these hair systems can be costly if you do not know where to look. Fortunately, an enterprising man who lost his hair early came up with the idea of putting up Advent Hair in 1994, providing bald men a more reasonably priced alternative to the expensive hair programs being offered by salons.

Send the data to them and in 7 days, you will receive a mold according to the specifications you sent in.

Save Energy with Compact Fluorescent Lamps

We're not done with the interior finishing yet. That CFL bulb you see hanging on the ceiling of my son's room will be replaced by a lamp. I have already seen some compact fluorescent lamps at the home depot but I'd like my son to be the one to choose what would go in his room. He might like something manly, my only condition is that we use CFL.

You just don't know how expensive electricity costs back here. Reports say, the Philippines' electric rate is the second most expensive in Asia. Incandescent bulbs use 75 watts while a CFL bulb only uses 20 watts. Besides, I never liked the somewhat dim glow of yellow incadescent bulbs; not that I always want my room really bright, I just like the white glow of CFLs. There will also be less frequent changes these energy saving bulbs.  An incandescent light bulb  only lasts a year, sometimes less. A CFL can last up to 10 years.

If you're worried about the aesthetic look of your home, CFLs can be used anywhere just like you would with an incandescent light bulb. Most lighting fixtures now have adopted the energy saving fever and these CFLs come in different sizes and designs.

Starting Your Child Early with Dallas Cowboys Baby Cothes

People from different ages and walks of life have come to admire the skill and fervor of the Dallas Cowboys as basketball players. They follow the team’s every game and show their appreciation for the team by buying Dallas Cowboys souvenirs and by sporting Dallas Cowboys inspired clothing. Couples who are avid fans of the esteemed basketball team go as far as dressing up their children in these outfits and start them young by dressing up their babies in Dallas Cowboys’ baby clothes. And where better to find these outfits than at Baby Fans, Inc., the leading online store for licensed baby products of leading sports teams.

Baby Fans, Inc is the inspired idea of two sports fans, Todd Wilson and Josh Fraser. Soon after they heard that they were soon to become uncles, they went around in search of baby gear of their favorite teams to send to the newborns. They had their work cut out for them as there was not one online store where licensed baby products of popular sports teams can be purchased. Initially, they sold gear of collegiate teams but they have since expanded their line to include over 50 MLB, NFL and NASCAR teams. Their products range from toddler jerseys to bottles and blankets and charming cheerleader costumes. Shopping licensed baby gear that sport your favorite team’s logos for your own children or as gifts to welcome new babies is convenient and fun at Baby Fans, Inc.

How We Welcomed the Year of the Black Snake

Like most Filipino-Chinese, we too, celebrate the Chinese New Year. We may not be as superstitious as the pure bloods, but we do follow some of the traditions. Mom is a Chinese Mestiza and she is the only one in our household who could speak and write Fukien and Mandarin.

We celebrated the Chinese New Year here at our new home last February 10. We prepared some foods that are believed to bring luck. We had steamed fish, sweet rice cakes, spring rolls and Peking Duck. We also had lots of round fruits on the table. I almost forgot about the bulk candy I ordered a couple of days before the big day. It was almost midnight when I noticed that I hadn't filled the harmony tray with candies and sweet treats yet. When the clock struck 12 midnight, we uttered a prayer of thanks and ate.

We didn't have the fireworks just like the others but we did the rolling of oranges early the next day. Mom was once told that when you do that, businesses and homes will be blessed with gold. You are supposed to start rolling from the threshold so luck and money will come in.

While others welcomed the year of the Black Snake with a bang, our family celebrated it quietly at home. My horoscope says this is going to be a very lucky year for me. Although I don't rely on luck, I'm praying that it will be an abundant and great year for me.

Being Considerate

I admire people who would walk up to the smoking lounge or go to the smoke shop to satisfy their smoke cravings. They are considerate enough to think of other people's health. I hate people who would light up a cigarette or cigar just about anywhere: hallways, restaurants and other public areas. I used to be a smoker too but I've always considered the health of my non-smoker companions. I only smoked in designated areas and never in public places. I got rid of the habit two years ago.

Feeling down?

Then eat potatoes. Spuds (both the flesh and skin) are packed with amino acids and minerals that prompts the brain to produce mood-elevating serotonin.  According to experts, feelings of happiness increase by up to 54 percent just 30 minutes after eating potatoes.

Trade Printing is Cheaper

As a graphic designer, my husband finds it cheaper to look for a trade printing service rather than print all the materials himself. Trade printers usually offer cheaper printing services especially if you order in bulk. Printer inks are costly so if he will not search for a cheaper (but good quality) alternative, he will end up earning too little from his work.

Mexican Flower

I was walking the other night when I passed by a plant shop.  This flower caught my attention so I took a photo and asked the owner for the name.  She told me that they call it the Mexican Flower. I googled it but I didn't find this flower. Have you seen it before.

Did You Know?

Fresh fruits turns on optimism.  Women who eat 1 cup of fruit daily are more positive and upbeat compared with women who skip the nutrient-dense treats.  Experts explain that fruit's complex carbs ramp up the brain's production of endorphines and oxytocin -- hormones that promote feelings of contentment and joy even on hectic days.

Innovative Installation Systems for Tiles and Stones

Schluter Systems produces an innovative line of waterproofing assemblies called the Kerdi line. They can be installed adjacent to walls or at other locations where you require waterproofing and drainage. The line consists of a stainless steel body and grate assembly that can be adjusted to the thickness of the tile or stone covering of your showers, steam rooms, and all other areas where waterproofing and drainage are necessary. A polystyrene foam channel support is also included in the assembly for even better waterproofing. The grate assembly is made of brushed stainless steel and comes in three design grate options which ensure that you will get a virtually invisible drainage line.

The Schluter-Ditra is a polyethylene membrane that was developed to protect the tile assembly. It is an underlayment to the tile and stone coverings that performs multiple functions. First, it is an uncoupling layer which protects the tile from the stresses between the substrate and the tile. This diminishes the danger of cracking and delaminating of the surface. Second, it provides waterproofing whether in interior or exterior applications because of the material used to make it. The free space created by the channels on the underside of the membrane provides a route where excess moisture and vapor can escape reducing the risk of damage to the tile layer above. And lastly, it provides support to the loads that tiles and stones carry, thus preserving the integrity of the tiled surface.

The innovative systems of Kerdi and Ditra have made them very popular installation systems in South Shore Flooring which is a proud dealer of these tile and stone installation accessories. Check out their complete line of Schluter Systems products for your tile and stone installation requirements and ensure that your bathrooms and kitchens are waterproof and that your tiles and stones last longer.

A Non-Surgical Solution to TMJ Disorder

TMJ Disorder, short for Temporo-Mandibular Joint Disorder is a condition where your jaw joints (temporo-mandibular joints) are constantly painful. The pain is not just disconcerting; more often than not, you cannot focus or concentrate on anything else because the pain can be so severe. It comes to a point when pain controls your life.

Pain is our body’s way of telling us something is wrong. It is a warning sign for more serious conditions. A bad bite is most often the root cause of TMJ Disorder. The bad bite can be the result of allergies you may have suffered in your childhood, thumb sucking, worn out dentistry, or the shifting of teeth after tooth loss. Misaligned jaws cause a strain on muscles throughout the face, head, arms, shoulders and back. And ultimately, the constant strain on the jaw joints leads to TMJ disorder. When left uncorrected, a bad bite can lead to problems with your health and comfort and cause aging problems.

An expert Abbotsford TMJ dentist, in the person of Dr. Steven Hill offers the use of a dental appliance, also called an orthotic that will change the position of your lower jaw to help your upper and lower teeth to come together in a comfortable position. This brings relief to the pain that is brought about by the constant strain placed on your jaw joints by the uneven bite. Fill up an appointment form on the good doctor’s website and get on your way to finding relief from the pain now.

Safe and Fast Battery Charger

Not all chargers are created equal so you have to choose well before you spend on them. I am not an expert but I would recommend the maha mh-c9000 battery charger because it charges each battery individually. My son has been using this charger for years and even the batteries that went with it when we bought it are still functioning well. Most of the battery chargers you will find will charge all of the batteries with the same amount of electricity. This could be bad because the other batts that don't need much power will be overcharged. It is dangerous as well because there is a big chance they might explode. Sure there are a lot of cheap chargers around but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
