Toothpaste selecting

Stop using if you it feels like sands
Cleaning the dirt on the surface of the teeth is done through the toothpaste abrasive. Therefore, the abrasive quality is the main criterion to distinguish the quality of toothpaste. Inferior abrasive can make enamel more and more fragile, wear of the bridging part of teeth and gums and cause gingival recession.
To see whether a abrasive is of good quality, one should pay attention to the evenness, fineness and smoothness of the cream. When brushing your teeth, pay attention to the texture of the toothpaste. If it is coarse or you feel sand particles stagnant in your mouth, you should stop using. In addition, the choice of the toothpaste flavor is also very important, especially for children. Choosing toothpaste of the suitable taste helps prolong your teeth brushing duration.
Fluoride toothpaste is the best choice to relieve tooth decay
As much as 82% of adults have the phenomenon of gingival recession. Gingival recession is the cause to tooth decay. Fluoride toothpaste is the exclusive choice for relieving tooth decay. Fluoride has both the decontamination and cleaning function of the ordinary toothpaste and have the effect of caries prevention. The application of fluoride toothpaste has got the acknowledgement of oral medicine circle and has almost replaced the previous common toothpastes on the market.
What needs to be reminded is, preschool children can swallow down some fluoride toothpaste when brushing the teeth and get affected by stomach discomforts. Hence, children should not use much fluoride toothpaste.
Medicinal toothpaste alone won't cure dental disease
Many drug toothpastes on the market, such as antiseptic and antiphlogistic type has certain effect on gum inflammation. In toothpaste containing drugs or other substances have certain preventive or alleviation effect on periodontal disease but because of the short duration and limited effect, they cannot make the cut for being treating measures for gingivitis and periodontitis, bleeding gums, teeth, sensitiveness and other oral diseases. If any discomfort appears, make sure to go for professional treatment.

Weight loss puts lives back on track

David Schroeder and his team at Wellington's Surgical Obesity Clinic love nothing more than giving their patients a second chance at life.

Dr Schroeder, an experienced laparoscopic abdominal surgeon, has performed thousands of obesity operations over almost two decades.

He performed the first laparoscopic gastric bypass in New Zealand in 2000 and has gone on to perform many more weight loss surgeries, including gastric banding and sleeve gastrectomy.

The procedures can produce varying results, with patients losing between 40 and 80 per cent of excess weight within a year.

And with weight loss comes a new lease of life, says Dr Schroeder, who says that is the most rewarding part of his job.

"The emphasis with all surgery is it is helping people, it's only a tool but it helps people to change their life habits around to a much healthier lifestyle," he says.

One patient says: "I knew I had to say farewell to my old body or face serious health issues. Weight loss surgery is the price of a good, second-hand car or an overseas trip.

That put it in perspective for me – I was investing in a healthy future."

Obesity is becoming an increasing problem the world over, Dr Schroeder says.

New Zealand Health Information Service figures indicate that 25 per cent of the population is considered obese. New Zealand has the third highest rate of obesity among the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development countries.

"It's a worldwide epidemic, simply because there's too much high-calorie food available, though genes do have something to do with it as well," he says.

Obesity results in a large number of medical conditions, typically type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and arthritis.

There is also an increased cancer risk and reduced life expectancy. Prejudice and social isolation are huge problems too, and the inability to relate normally with loved ones because of immobility and low self-esteem can be devastating, he says.

He outlines a common scenario – a 45-yearold woman who has gradually increased in weight with the birth of each child, who is now up to 125 kilograms and doesn't do any physical activity because it hurts.

She's too embarrassed to go out, she's becoming a recluse at home, she doesn't see any great hope for the future, she's getting depressed with all this and really feels that life isn't what she expected it to be at this age.

But after weight loss surgery, this woman immediately feels better about her body, she regains her self-confidence, she becomes more sociable, she wants to exercise, and she regains the life that she had hoped she would have.

"The commonest comment is not thank you for getting rid of my diabetes or lowering my blood pressure, it's thank you for giving me my life back," says Dr Schroeder.

"It's that incredible feeling people have of being released from a bondage that they felt they couldn't get away from."

Dr Schroeder is also proud of the fact that he's been "responsible" for many babies, with a steady stream of b

"That's the other group I really love, people that were told they were infertile, then are able to get pregnant after they've lost the weight."

After a referral from a family doctor, patients undergo five consultations, during which the surgical options, risks and complications are outlined. The surgical options include: Laparoscopic Gastric Banding (LAP-BAND?), the simplest and safest obesity operation.

A silicone band with a balloon is implanted around the top of the stomach. This can be inflated via a port under the skin. The operation works mainly by switching off the desire to eat and removing hunger. The expected weight loss is on average 60 per cent of excess weight and it requires lifelong changes to lifestyle and eating.

Laparoscopic Roux-En-Y Gastric Bypass (REYGB), is performed laparoscopically (keyhole surgery with a telescope) and is commonly known as stomach stapling. This type of bypass operation has proven to be an effective, consistent way of losing weight and of keeping it off, but it also requires lifelong changes to lifestyle and eating. Considered the "gold standard" of weight loss surgery, a small stomach pouch is created, restricting the amount of food that can be eaten initially, but long term, the operation also works by switching off the desire to eat. It also helps rid patients of type 2 diabetes. Initial weight loss at one year of 80 per cent of excess weight is expected.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy, whereby two-thirds of the stomach is removed laparoscopically. This severely restricts intake for the first year. The advantages are that there is less malabsorption of minerals and vitamins. People do sometimes get reflux for prolonged periods afterwards. Weight loss after a year is about 67 per cent of excess weight, but there is a tendency to regain weight after this.

Although surgery is powerful and can give positive results, Dr Schroeder says it can be beaten by habits.

"There seems to be a myth out there that weight loss surgery cures the weight problem, unfortunately, we know that isn't the case, it's a step towards the total solution." To ensure patients maintain healthy lifestyle habits afterwards, the clinic includes nurses, a dietician, psychologist and psychotherapist, counsellor and physiotherapist who are all just as essential in getting a good result that lasts. "One of the reasons people eat is because it releases nice chemicals in the brain that help cope with the problems of life. aby photos arriving at his office.

16 Ways to Lose Weight Faster

Fast weight loss tip:

"Most women make the mistake of thinking, If I can't work out for a full hour, why bother?" says Lashaun Dale, co-creator of the REDBOOK/Equinox Body Renewal express class offered in select Equinox gyms this spring. Don't be one of them! Steal one of these genius ideas instead.

"I run to work. It's four miles from my apartment to a gym near my office. The best part is that I don't have to sacrifice precious mornings with my daughter: I shower quicker at the gym, with no distractions, so I leave home at the usual time."

"I recruited a bunch of work friends to join the Wedding Dress Challenge with me. There's a gym in our office building, and at the beginning of the week, we put our classes on a calendar, the way we would any other meetings. Then when it's time to go, we'll just show up at each other's desks with our gear. Some days that accountability is just the extra push you need."

"I use my kids as fitness accessories! I found a mommy-and-me class that my 2-year-old twins love. Since there are two of them, I take my sister with me and we use the kids as weights. It's a workout lifting those babies."

"My husband and I — decided to take the weight-loss challenge together, and we keep each other on track — even when we're away from home. When I don't feel like working out, he'll say, ‘Let's go get it done.' One weekend, we were traveling and didn't have access to a gym. But it didn't matter; we went on long walks together to get the exercise in."

"I schedule workouts a week in advance. My husband and I have so much going on that we've found it's best to talk about how exercise fits into our schedule on Sunday nights, so we can be sure everything is good to go for the week. That way, if I need to get babysitting one day or make some other arrangements so I can get workouts in, I have time to make it happen."

"I realized that time spent hanging out with the family — even in front of the TV — didn't have to be lazy time. I discovered a DVD (Insanity: 60-Day Total Body Conditioning) that my husband and I enjoy doing together, and my son likes to get involved. He's got his jumping jacks down, and he totally wears himself out, which helps with bedtime!"

Don’t be afraid to deal and save

When it comes to saving a dollar, there are some budgeting tips that we're happy to embrace and others that are an absolute no-go zone.
Take the discount voucher. Some of us have no problem pulling a swifty at the cash register and claiming some money off. Others would rather listen to fingernails being scraped continuously down a blackboard.
Perhaps you wouldn't be caught in your coffin in second-hand clothes. Or you buck against having a home that smells of eau de vinegar. Or maybe bargaining anywhere other than Bali seems a bridge too far.
The money-saving tips that we accept or reject have a lot to do with how we think our behaviour will be perceived by others.

Cultural influences have a bearing, as do family habits, time and, ultimately, whether we believe the effort is worth the reward.
With that in mind, we asked three people to name a favourite money-saving tip and the point at which they would have to draw the line.
Newcastle University student Heenal Patel, 28, can't get enough of deal websites. As with many deal devotees, she uses them to snap up life's little luxuries, such as discounted haircuts, beauty treatments and restaurant dinners.
This month she hit a new deal-hunting high when she snaffled a new Nissan Almera Ti via the Living Social website.
"It's worth about $23,500, if I go and buy it straight out, and I'm getting it for 40 per cent off," she says. "I don't think I could ask for more. I'm driving a car from the 1980s at the moment."
As a 30-deal veteran, the part-time personal trainer and weight-loss consultant has learnt to do her homework before plonking her money down. A deal for a shellac manicure turned a bit sour when the nail technician went on holidays as the deal was posted and wasn't prepared for the influx of business when she returned.
Patel now looks at how a business is reviewed online, and she doesn't pursue discounts at all costs. When she finds a business she likes, she's happy to return as a full-paying customer.
No-go zone? Patel thinks it's demeaning to ask someone, particularly a health professional, for a discount.
"If a business is offering a service for a price, they've put it there for a reason. If you're not happy with their price, go to someone else who is offering it for less."
Asking for a discount doesn't bother Elizabeth Ball in the slightest. She has a long list of how it has helped keep costs down as she and her partner, Andrew, renovate their two-bedroom bungalow in Melbourne.
Coached by Andrew, who works as a retail manager, she regularly asks retailers for a discount on the last day of the month.
"That is when they have to meet their monthly targets or sometimes it's units they need to shift of a certain category line."

Ask the Personal Trainer: Does Sleeping After Eating Hinder Weight Loss?


Q: Is it good or bad to sleep after lunch and does it interfere in my weight loss? Would it be better if I didn't sleep?
A: This is a great question and one that stirs up plenty of debate in fitness centers across the country. Some people say our bodies shut down when we sleep and all food in our stomach automatically turns into fat. Thankfully, it's not quite this simple.
First, in the big weight loss equation of "calories in versus calories out," you should lose weight as long as you're burning more calories than you eat – no matter when you sleep.
Second, you must separate cause and effect from coincidence. If you get into the habit of sleeping after eating, then this crowds exercise out of the picture and makes it easier to "fall off the activity wagon." Less exercise means less justification of those calories and, consequently, a larger waistline.
Lastly, I am a big proponent of the behavioral aspect of exercise. I suggest doing at least a little exercise after a meal, not because I think it'll necessarily make you fit, but primarily to reinforce the habit of physical activity. When in doubt, remember that a little bit of something is better than a whole lot of nothing!

Climb Every Mountain

Before she joined Weight Watchers meetings, this mom of four used to watch wistfully from the sidelines as her husband and kids rock-climbed, skied and biked. Now she's the most active one in her family.
Two years ago, my daughter and husband climbed the Grand Teton, an almost 14,000-foot mountain in Wyoming. They wanted me to come too, but at 182 pounds, I knew there was no hope. Last September I stood on top of the same mountain with my husband; there are no words to express how exhilarating it felt, and all because I had shed 45 pounds.* I had no idea how much losing weight would affect my life, and those of my husband and four children.
An Eating Free-For-All
My family had always been into outdoor activities but increasingly, I wasn't able to join in. I kept an extra ten pounds with each of my pregnancies, and my eating habits had gotten a little out of control. I had no concept of portions, so I would eat at least three times what I should (big bowls of pasta were a real culprit). And it's almost embarrassing to remember this, but I used to snack all the time, practically shoving food into my mouth, thinking, "I'm already fat, so what does it matter?"
A Kitchen Makeover
Finally, in 2003, when we went on vacation to Sawtooth National Forest in Idaho and I wasn't able to do anything with my family, I made a pledge to change. Walking into my first Weight Watchers meeting, I was nervous, but felt that this was the first step to taking charge. When I got home, I prepared to follow the Weight-Loss system by going through the kitchen cabinets and throwing out all the junk. I also realized that I had been so busy cooking for my family that I was neglecting what I needed. So I started shopping with myself in mind. I stocked up on high-fiber cereals (I used to eat eggs and cheese for breakfast), skim milk and plenty of produce.
A Little Extra Effort Can Pay Off Big
One thing I learned is that you have to commit to keeping the kitchen stocked with good foods. Yes, it can take extra effort (and sometimes money), but if you're hungry and there's nothing healthy to reach for, you're going to grab the chips instead. So I shop more often today and spend a bit more money, but it's so worth it.
"I'm a Better Mom and Wife"
Today I know I'll never get left behind again. We all go backcountry skiing together in the winter (it's the ultimate workout!), and my 11-year-old son runs with me occasionally. I even ran a half marathon! I started out wanting to get healthy, but I never knew how much happier losing weight would make me. That, in turn, makes me a better mom and wife.
