Holistic Health Article By Dr. Leia on Dental Pain - Natural Solutions for Tooth Pain Relief

Question for Dr. Leia: I have been having some sensitivity in my teeth and am scheduled for oral surgery to remove an impacted wisdom tooth. I know you are not a dentist, but do you know of some natural treatments for wisdom tooth pain relief? Would acupuncture or acupressure help give tooth pain relief or offer help after I have oral surgery? Also, while I am asking do you know of any natural herbal pain supplements that would help because I don't like taking narcotics or prescription pain medicines? Thanks for your expertise and thoughtful answers. Best, Stanley

Dr. Leia's Answer

Whole cloves and pure food grade clove oil has been recommended by herbalists for centuries to relieve tooth pain. It is an old tried-and-true folk remedy which really works. However, be forewarned that the pain relief is only temporary, and you should definitely keep your appointment with your oral surgeon. You might want to take a whole clove or two and place it directly on the tooth and between the gum, or near the area which is causing you pain. Be sure to chew on it slightly to bruise the clove, and then let it do its magic. The taste is strong, but can be tolerated if you are not sensitive or allergic to cloves.

Another suggestion would be to use aloe vera gel on the tooth, but I am not certain if this alone would be strong enough. You might want to experiment with aloe vera gel mixed with cloves or clove oil and see which combination will work best for you. The aloe vera gel might also dilute the strength of the clove oil if it is too strong for you to tolerate.

Acupuncture can temporarily relieve your pain while you are awaiting your dental appointment, and acupressure may also help temporarily. One powerful acupressure point includes LI4, which is located in the web space between the thumb and index finger at the highest part of the muscle when the thumb and index finger are brought close together. This point can be pressed gently but firmly and held continuously as needed. I recommend the book, "Acupressure Potent Points, A Guide to Self-Care for Common Ailments" by Michale Reed Gach, if you have a keen interest in learning more about self-help acupressure. Acupressure can also help relieve other forms of bodily pain, and this book show you how to do it yourself.

Thought field therapies such as EFT, or Emotional Freedom Technique, are also very effective in relieving different types of unwanted bodily aches and pains. EFT is an innovative form of acupressure combined with deep breathing, and affirmations, which work synergistically to alleviate unwanted conditions, both physical and emotional or mental.

Homeopathic remedies may also be effective in relieving your tooth pain until you visit your dentist. Commonly used homeopathics for you could include Calc. phos, or Arnica, two homeopathics which may assist in your toothache control. Since homeopathic remedies are individualized for each specific case, it is best to refer to a complete homeopathic textbook, or to visit a homeopathic doctor who will analyze your case. Homeopathic remedies are safe and do not have any side effects, so if the incorrect remedy is chosen, there will be no response.

There are many Chinese herbal formulas for pain relief, which can be obtained from your local acupuncturist or Chinatown herbal apothecary. Often times, the herbalist-acupuncturist will combine a unique formula based upon your pain symptoms, after taking a pulse diagnosis. This formula will be individualized especially for you. White willow bark is also a natural herb which is available at your health food store. Aspirin was originally developed based upon white willow bark's pain relieving ingredients and properties. However, if you opt to use the natural willow bark, beware that it can also have the same overdose side-effects as aspirin. Just because it is natural, does not mean that it is exempt from toxic side effects.

Other, non-herbal supplements which alleviate inflammation include: fish oil capsules, bromelain-quercitin complex, and pycnogenol. These natural supplements have moderate to strong anti-inflammatory effects without the side effects of chemical anti-pain medications.

If you want to go the route of over-the counter drugstore remedies, Orajel, which contains benzocaine anesthetic, is effective at temporarily relieving the pain of toothaches.

I hope that this helps you in your search for dental and tooth pain relief. Tooth Pain

The Rewards of Beauty

Beauty is (Like) a Drug

A study by medical researchers has found that looking at beautiful female faces activates the same part of the brain that is affected by drugs such as cocaine, heroin, and alcohol. The reward system in the human brain is highly susceptible to pleasurable stimulation, and this mechanism in the brain has been linked to addictions to drugs, food, and gambling. According to the study published in the scientific journal Neuron, a beautiful woman’s face has a similar affect on men’s brains.

While other researchers have focused on how the brain processes the visual perception of faces, researchers Hans Breiter, MD, and Nancy Etcoff, PhD, of the Massachusetts General Hospital focused instead on how the reward systems of the brain respond to beautiful faces.

Beauty and the Brain

Researchers utilized a variety of techniques to study the responses of a group of young, heterosexual men. A collection of 80 photographs was chosen by researchers to represent four different categories: average-looking males, beautiful males, average-looking females, and beautiful females. The researchers then assessed how the participants rated the attractiveness of each photograph, how long participants looked at each photograph, and how the images affected neurological functioning.

To assess brain activity, one group of participants had images taken of their brain with an MRI as they looked at the faces in each photograph. "Earlier studies that I and others have conducted follow evidence that the perception of beauty is inborn, that similar features are regarded as beautiful universally. If beauty is indeed hard-wired into the brain by natural selection, we would expect to find circuits in the brain that respond to beauty,” explained Nancy Etcoff, author of Survival of the Prettiest: The Science of Beauty.

The study found that the men not only rated beautiful faces highly, they also spent more time looking at them. Most significantly, the results of brain imaging demonstrated that looking a beautiful woman’s face activated the reward system of the brain. One interesting result was that looking at images of attractive male faces actually decreased the amount of activity in the brain reward system. "It's particularly interesting that the attractive male faces actually produced what could be considered an aversion response, even though they had been recognized as attractive,” noted lead author Hans Breiter.

The study demonstrates that the brain’s reward system plays an important role in attraction. While many aspects of attraction are affected by other variables such as personal characteristics and individual preferences, it is also important to consider the biology of attraction.

10 Best Findings about Omega-3

Omega-3 fatty acids have many health benefits. And for many people, they do. They’re found in fatty, cold water fish (salmon, mackerel, lake trout, herring, sardines and albacore tuna), canola, soybean, flaxseed and walnut oils, as well as dark green leafy vegetables like kale and collard green. You can also get omega-3 from fish-oil capsules. The following are some findings about Omega-3 for your reference.

1. Omega-3 may help to have late-stage AMD

The Australian study involved over 2900 people aged 49 or older. This study found that “Participants who reported eating at least one weekly serving of fish were 40 percent less likely to develop early-stage AMD (age-related macular degeneration) during the study, compared with those who reported eating fish less than once a month or not at all. People who ate fish frequently were also less likely to have late-stage AMD, the study shows. But that pattern was only seen in participants who reported eating fish at least three times weekly.”

2. Omega-3 may reduce allergy problems of eczema and asthma on the baby.

New research shows that pregnant women who take omega-3 supplements during their pregnancy, as well as during their child’s infancy and nursing, have children with far fewer allergy problems of eczema and asthma. The study had examined infants of expectant mothers from families with high risk of allergy and asthma who were given a fish oil supplement from the 25th week of pregnancy until the third month of breastfeeding. At one year old, the children whose mothers took the supplement had “considerably fewer allergic reactions“. Significantly, they had less than half as many reactions to eggs, which is an early indicator of eczema and asthma. One of the researchers in the study commented that fish oil worked by relieving inflammation in the mother, and this had an effect on the child’s immune system also.

3. Omega-3 may improve the SLE symptoms

A recent study presented at the American College of Rhemutaology found significant improvements in symptoms System Lupus Erythematosus (SLE):“This is the first study in lupus patients measuring improvements in blood vessel function,” said presenter and investigator Stephen Wright, MD, “After 6 months we saw evidence confirming the beneficial effects of omega-3 fish oils for improving symptoms of lupus and, also, evidence of a cardioprotective effect in these patients,”. After 6 months of fish oil supplements, there was a statistically-significant improvement in lupus symptoms.

4. Omega-3 may reduce hyperactivity, inattention and impulsiveness in children.

Omega-3 is vital for fetal brain development and now its thought a deficiency in the womb can lead to blood pressure problems in adulthood. Doctors also believe that if kids don get enough omega-3, they may develop learning, psychiatric and behavioural problems later on. A study by Dr Natalie Sinn at the University of South Australia found the fish oil supplements reduced hyperactivity, inattention and impulsiveness in half the children taking it. It also helped children who suffered from ADHD symptoms. So get more omega-3 to kids by giving them fish in foods they enjoy, like a seafood pizza.

5. Omega-3 may enhance infant development

A new study funded by Health Canada and other organizations has proven a direct correlation between dietary consumption of the omega-3 DHA and enhanced infant development. The study, which was supervised by Universite Laval researchers and published in the Journal of Pediatrics, reveals, DHA consumed during the last months of pregnancy boosts an infant's sensory, cognitive, and motor development. The research team reached its conclusion by first measuring the amount of DHA concentration in the umbilical cord blood of 109 infants. "DHA concentration in the umbilical cord is a good indicator of intra-uterine exposure to omega-3s during the last trimester of pregnancy, a crucial period for the development of retinal photoreceptors and neurons," said study supervisor Dr. Eric Dewailly. After testing the infants at six and 11 months, the researchers discovered visual acuity, cognitive development, and motor development were closely linked to DHA concentration in the umbilical cord blood at the time of their birth.

6. Omega-3 may boost the brain-power

Expectant mothers who eat enough omega-3 fats late in pregnancy may give their babies a brain-power boost, a new study suggests. Researchers found that among 109 Inuit infants they followed, those whose umbilical-cord blood was higher in docosahexaenoic acid, an omega-3 acid, at birth did better in tests of infant brain and eye development at the ages of 6 and 11 months.

7. Omega-3 may help reduce the risk of recurrent miscarriages

One of the common causes of recurrent miscarriages is a condition known as antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). Early research suggests that fish oil, which contains omega-3 fatty acids, may help reduce the risk of recurrent miscarriages in women with this condition. This may be due to the "blood-thinning" properties of omega-3 fatty acids, since antiphospholipid syndrome can cause miscarriages by causing blood clots, or to other properties of fish oil.

8. Omega-3 , do consult your doctor for any subscription.

If you are pregnant, it is always a good idea to have a discussion with your healthcare provider before taking any medication or supplement, including omega-3 fatty acid products. It is important that you chose an omega-3 supplement that is free of toxins. Be sure to not exceed your healthcare provider's recommended dose of omega-3 fatty acids, since high doses can increase the risk of bleeding.

9. Omega-3 could be fatal

The pioneering research of Alexander Leaf, MD, at Harvard Medical School has found that in some cases omega-3s could be fatal. One of the reasons omega-3s may decrease the incidence of sudden cardiac death is that they stop those cardiac cells that are the most unstable from functioning. But in people who have angina (chest pain or tightness due to heart disease) or congestive heart failure because their hearts are not receiving enough blood flow, removing those cells from functioning can reduce the heart’s ability to pump blood so much that it may increase the risk of sudden cardiac death.

10. Omega-3 should be avoided for certain cases.

Avoid omega-3s if you have recurrent angina, congestive heart failure or evidence that your heart isn’t receiving enough blood flow when you exercise.

The miracle of modern technology allows scientists to look inside cells at our genes, searching for clues on how genes turn on and off and trying to understand the effects of this activity. A very specific group of genes has been shown to help regulate cell lifespan and thus is known as the "longevity genes."

Research by Estée Lauder scientists working with scientists from a major university* has indicated that one of these "longevity genes"—SIRT1—helps to regulate the lifespan of our skin's epidermal cells.

Inspired by these discoveries, Estée Lauder developed Ultimate Youth Creme to help prolong the youthful appearance of your skin.

10 ways to save at home

Want financial security someday? Then pull up your socks, get wise and follow this simple guide to help you save money especially while you at home.

1- Fill the kettle with just a little more than what you need for your tea/coffee. This will save electricity while preventing the heating element from burning out.

2- Reach for a rag cloth instead of kitchen paper rolls to wipe up spills.

3- Set a weekly meal budget and shop accordingly. Don’t stock up on items with a short shelf-life like yoghurt, which will end up in the bin within a week.

4- Buy fresh produce at market instead of supermarket tray packs.

5- Switch to energy-saving light bulbs. They generally last longer and will save you big bucks in the long run.

6- Visit a DIY store and learn how to maintain your own home. This should include tightening door hinges and giving the house a fresh coat of paint if needed.

7- Cultivate the habit of turning off the tap while brushing your teeth and scrubbing your face.

8- Avoid leaving your TV on standby mode. Switch it off every night to save electricity.

9- Use a plug-in nightlight instead of leaving the hallway light on overnight.

10- Find out if electrical appliances can be repaired before replacing them.(But if repair comes up to more than the half the price of the new item and doesn’t come with a three month guarantee, opt for a new.

You needn’t become obsessed about saving money and become a penny-pincher; just make a conscious effort in your everyday life to be less wastefull.

Basic Hair Care Tips

Each strand of hair begins life in a little nodule known as papilla, which is attached to a hair follicle. Blood supply enables the papilla to produce hair, the follicles holds the root of the hair which is below the surface of the skin or scalp. The visible part of the root is called the shaft. Hair is basically dead because it no longer receives nourishment form the papilla. That’s why the condition and health of your hair depends on how well you care for it.

Here’s a list of do’s and don’ts for your hair:

Shampoo your hair

You must shampoo hair to get rid of oil, grime and dirt. How often depends on the individual – some need shampoo every day, while others can do it every couple of days. It’s important to get shampoo that suitable for your hair type. When applying shampoo to your hair, dilute it a little with water as most shampoos are concentrated. Spread the shampoo evenly through the hair and massage the scalp using the pads of your fingers. Never use fingernails to scrub (this is harmful to the scalp and may damage hair). Rinse thoroughly and shampoo again. If you shampoo everyday, you only need to shampoo once. Rinse thoroughly until hair is clean.

Use conditioner

Just a moisturizer is essential for skin, so is conditioner for hair. Conditioners add moisture to dry hair, making it smooth and more manageable, and helps prevent split ends and breakage. Use conditioner sparingly; apply to the ends where hair is driest. Leave for a minute, then rinse off thoroughly.

Use good hairbrush

Invest in a good hairbrush made from natural animal bristles, or look for those with smooth, rounded bristles. Brushing does have it benefits – it helps massage the scalp, removes dead cells and distributes sebum evenly through the hair to give it a healthy shine.

Take extra care for drying hair

Take extra care when drying hair, because hair is most fragile when wet and breaks easily. Instead of rubbing hair vigorously with a towel, squeeze excess water out and pat gently. Use a wide tooth comb or brush to remove tangles.

Let hair dry naturally.

It’s best to let hair dry naturally. If you must use hairdryer, don’t hold it too close to the hair. Avoid high temperature settings, as it will cause hair to become dry, dull and brittle in the long run.

Stretch mark removal - treatments for stretch marks

Have you given birth to some stretch marks? Here's how to get rid of the unwanted part of your new family.

Finding The Most Effective Stretch Mark Cream by : Low Jeremy

Do you have ugly stretch marks that you would like to get rid of the soonest time possible? Have considered nearly all of the medications available to you? If so, you must have tried those stretch mark cream removers you see displayed in the shelves of health stores.

Stretch mark creams are over-the-counter medications that you can buy from any drugstore or even in some beauty shops. They all claim to be effective in removing stretch marks of all types, shapes, and form.

And a lot of people try it, because applying a cream on a stretch mark gives them the feel of removing their stretch marks without the costly consultation sessions, dermatologist's fees, as well as the submission to several medical or non-medical procedures.

But do stretch mark removal creams really work? So you can be guided in selecting the most effective stretch mark cream in the market, try to find out if several of these key ingredients are included in the cream's formulation.

  1. Emu oil
    Emu oil is known to penetrate the skin's outer layers in a quick and effective manner. Then it goes further and reaches the skin's second layer, called the dermis. And not only that; it can also enhance the skin's healing ability. Emu oil does not irritate. It deeply penetrates the skin and has an emulsifying effect, therefore making it a moisturizing agent as well.
  2. Grape Seed Extract
    Grapes are one fruit that is high in anti-oxidation properties. It also aids in the absorption of Vitamin C in the body, which is paramount in strengthening the cell's membranes and protects it from being damaged. Grape seed extract is also rich in proanthocyanidins, a molecule that protects the body's capillary walls and hinders the growth of enzymes, which breaks down the collagen and elastin present in the body.
  3. Glycolic Acid
    This is a form of a hydroxyacetic acid that is found mostly in young plants as wells green fruits. This is the acid that reduces the buildup of dead skin cells. Glycolic acid can be obtained from sugar cane. It has small molecules that can effectively penetrate the skin. It is also aids in exfoliating the body.
  4. Vitamin E
    Vitamin E is the best anti-oxidant. It aids in delaying the cell's aging process as a direct result of oxidation. Like any other anti-oxidant, it nourishes the cells and protects the skin from further damage.
  5. Aloe Vera
    Aloe Vera's cooling effect makes it the best medicinal agent for sunburns and similar injuries. It can reduce inflammation and promote healing. It is also known to offset wrinkles and softens the skin naturally.
  6. Collagen
    Collagen from outside sources counteracts the body's natural collagen content. Collagen is a protein found within the tissues of the body. As one ages, his body's collagen content becomes reduced in a dramatic manner. Thus, the skin loses moisture and cannot retain it naturally.
  7. Liposomes
    These substances resemble a very small sphere found inside phospholipids, which in turn, is a form of a fatty substance. Liposomes serve as a catalyst to the cream's major ingredients like oil and moisturizers.

These are some of the key ingredients of a good stretch mark cream. If you wanted to get the most effective one in the market, you have to make sure that most of these ingredients, if not all, are present.

Detox yourself : A Step to glowing skin.

The state of your skin is a direct reflection of what you eat and drink, so consuming lots of fresh food and drinking plenty of water will make you look and feel much healthier.

The following are good detox foods.

- Fruit : Fresh apricots, beries, melon, citrus fruits such as oranges, peaches, mango and grapes.

- Vegetables : Artichokes, peppers, beet-root, broccoli, tomatoes, red cabbage, turnip and watercress.

- Beans and grains : chickpeas and brown rice.

- Fish : salmon, mackerel, cod, sardines and tuna

- Meat : organic, skinless turkey and chicken.

- Nuts and seeds : Almonds, brazils, hazelnuts, pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds.

Avoid over-indulging on foods which your body finds hard to detoxify, such as red meat, dairy products, white bread, pasta, rice, potatoes, white bread, fried food, sugar, alcohol, tea, coffee and soft drink. A 12 year study of 90,659 women aged 26 to 46 as found that high red meat consumption may be associated with the increased risk of hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer in premenopausal women. “Subjects who are ate more than 1.5 servings of red meat a day had nearly double the risk of those who ate less than three servings a week”, says Eunyoung Cho, head author of the study and an assistant professor at medicine at Harvard Medical School). Try as well to drink 2 litres of filtered water every day and take a multivitamin and mineral pill along with 1000 mg of vitamin C. Follow this regime for 2 weeks.

Your Personality reveals from the car colour.

Colours are much more than a nice decoration. The ancient Egyptians were convinced that colour was the key to our emotions, individuality and even physical well-being. Each colour tells a story and it can influence your behavior in a specific way.

Silver – You’re a go-getter

Silver car owners are not likely to dwell on problem. Instead, you pick yourself up, dust yourself off and take-action. You confront obstacles by dreaming up unique solutions. Though you may sometimes get discouraged, you never let things get you down and the results you get when you try and try again are amazing.

Red - You’re fuelled by emotion

Usually car owners have passionate temperaments that are fuelled by emotions and run on their instinct. They are from the types of stay young since makes them full of life, lust and passion.

Green –You’re generous

People buying light or bright green are likely to be bright and youthful, wanting to live life to the full. Dark green is for those who think everything will turn out for the better. A hot fashion color that puts an emphasis on the environment, but the deeper the green, the more conservative and traditional person you are. Traditionally, green is not the only the colour of money, but also of generosity and faith. That’s why green car owners are the first to give their time and money when others are in need.

Black – You reach for the star

Black car symbolizes power, prestige and elegance. Although you are happy with your job, friends and loved ones, you strive toward elevating yourself whenever you can. You philosophy is “You’ll never get anywhere if you don’t’ try”. That’s why you and your family are on your way up, full-speed ahead.

Blue – You’re optimistic

You like consistency in your life. You're likely to be conservative, shy, and introverted. A team player who's sociable and friendly but lacking in imagination.

White – You’re the queen of reason

White car lovers tend to be calm and collected, accessing the whole picture before reacting. Since you’re such a reasonable person, others trust you to handle problems in fair manners. Your calm determination always gets the job done – but when the road gets rocky, let your heart lead the way. It’ll never steer you wrong.

Clues You May Need Health Supplement

Your body may already be warning you that you’re running low on an essential nutrient.

Our bodies need a balance of vitamins and minerals daily to run well. If your body shows this sign, you may need a supplement.

CLUE: Carbs Crave.

You may be short of the mineral chromium. Nutrionist Patrick Holford, author of the New Optimum Nutrition Bible, says: “When there’s imbalance in blood sugar levels, you’ll suffer a lack of energy. Chromium works with insulin to stabilize blood sugar, appetite and weight. The more uneven your blood sugar, the more chromium you use. Low blood sugar can also make you crave sweets and carb-rich foods.”. Ironically, these foods deplete chromium levels even more. Fix it by eating whole meal bread, unpolished ice, oysters and eggs.

CLUE: You are very Moody

If you often feel down, it could be a B-vitamin deficiency. B-vitamins help battle negative moods and stress. They have an essential role in the metabolic process of cells, and four of the B-vitamins – thiamine B1, niacin B3, riboflavin B2 and panthothenic acid B5 – are vital for energy production. When foods are well digested with help from B- vitamin, they release energy. B-vitamins are found in peanuts, soy milk, orange juice and oily fish.

CLUE: Low Sex Drive

You may be short of zinc, which the body uses to make the hormone testosterone, which sparks desire in women and men. Other signs include lowered immunity, white flecks on nails and thinning hair.

CLUE: Constant Infections

Constant infections like colds, flu or thrush are usually signs of poor immunity. Poor immune systems are due to low levels of antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E, zinc and selenium. Fix it by eating more fresh fruit, like citrus fruits and berries, and green veggies.
