The next time you are reclining in your dentist’s chair, you should know that when you’re opening your mouth wide, your dentist is looking at more than just your teeth – and you should be thankful.

Dentists can tell a lot about your overall health when they examine your mouth during a regular dental exam.

To trained dental professionals who are familiar with their patients, gingivitis, breath that smells a certain way, eroding enamel, increased infections or easy-to-bleed gums can be signs of bigger problems.

And some of those problems might not have anything to do with your mouth. According to the American Dental Association, early indicators of diabetes, heart disease or other serious conditions can sometimes show up in your mouth before any other symptoms might reveal themselves.

Warning signs: cavities, bleeding gums

Many people don’t realize that a cavity in your tooth is actually an infectious disease. Left untreated, this infection caused by tooth decay can spread in your mouth, creating gum disease.

And the American Dental Association (ADA) cites studies showing that people who have gum disease can also be at higher risk for serious health problems like diabetes, heart disease, respiratory problems, and even dementia.

This covers a large number of people in the United States.  Data from the Centers for Disease Control indicate nearly half of all adults in the U.S. age 30 and older have some form of gum disease.

So, if your dentist notices chronic gum disease, also called periodontal disease, he or she might talk to you about the other health problems that might be involved. They might also suggest you see your regular physician for a check-up.

Focus on prevention

Citing the potential link between gum disease and other health problems, the ADA recommends focusing on preventative dental care as a step toward maintaining overall health. And the easiest way to do that is by getting into a simple, daily routine:

  1. Brush your teeth twice a day, and floss before bedtime. Pick a good toothpaste designed to help remove plaque, such as Glister™ Multi-Action Fluoride Toothpaste. Use a dental floss that slips easily in between your teeth.
  2. See your dentist regularly. Twice-a-year checkups are recommended.
  3. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. A daily diet that includes colorful fruits and vegetables is a good way to help your gums fight inflammation caused by bacteria.
  4. Make your dental appointments a priority. Those routine visits not only keep your mouth healthy, they allow your dentist to look for signs of potential problems. Consider it an investment in yourself!

6 TIPS FOR WORKING AT HOME DURING QUARANTINE

6 TIPS FOR WORKING AT HOME DURING QUARANTINE

Whether it was going into an office, a treasured coffee shop or coworking space, many are now missing the structure and routine of a dedicated work environment as we stay home to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Even those who traditionally work from home may find their space and work time invaded by other household members amid this global COVID-19 pandemic.

It’s a challenging situation, but we have some tips to help you keep frustrations to a minimum while still being productive, staying home and staying safe.

1. Create a dedicated work space

It’s important to create a space where you can be productive. Things to consider: lighting, privacy for you and others, space so you don’t feel cramped, posture, connectivity.

You may think it’s awesome to lie on your couch or in bed with your laptop, but after a few days you may notice a pain in your neck or back that wasn’t there before. Just channel your inner parent when you were younger and sit up straight!

Make sure all your technology works in your space, too. Do your cords reach? Is there a strong Wi-Fi and cell signal? If it’s a dead spot for those, you are headed for frustration.

And don’t forget to look behind your chair to see what your coworkers might see during a video call.

2. Minimize distractions

Once you have your space set, create something that is a signal to your household that you are at work and should not be disturbed.

Maybe it’s a closed door, a sign, a room divider, or the simple act of wearing earbuds or headphones. Whatever it is, when it is in effect, you can ask your household to respect it.

That means pretending like you are unavailable and avoiding anything that will create too much noise or activity in your area.

Depending on where your workspace is, you should have a household discussion about work hours that are manageable for everyone involved.

3. Get in the work mindset

If your home is usually your escape from work, you might find it difficult to hunker down and get things done.

Try sticking to your typical work schedule and mimicking the professional experience. You can get ready and “arrive” on time each day in work clothes.

Pajamas and sweat pants might send the wrong message to your brain about getting things done. And if you have a calendar filled with video conferences, you might want to think twice about showing up in them on screen.

4. Don’t forget your breaks

Give yourself your usual breaks: coffee, coworker chit chat, exercise, walking the office to clear your head.

They may look differently in your home than in your traditional work environment, but they will serve the same purpose of giving you a mental or physical break in your day.

You can walk around the block, run up and down your stairs, do a load of laundry or clean the kitchen.

If you usually joke around with a coworker who sits near you, send them a text or chat or – gasp! – give them a call.

Social interaction is a key part of your mental wellbeing and virtual interaction is better than none at all, especially during these crazy days.

5. Mentally clock out at the end of the day

This is part of sticking to your schedule. When you physically work in another location, it’s somewhat easy to leave work at work. Try to do the same thing even though you’re working from home.

Of course, these times may call for some unconventional work hours and tasks, but do your best to allow yourself to be completely off the clock for chunks of time so you can be there for your family and refreshed when it’s time to get back to work.

6. Be flexible and realistic

These are unprecedented times. It’s OK to recognize that and allow yourself some leeway as you try to merge your work and home lives amidst a global pandemic.

And make sure to include your normal self-care routines in your newfound schedule. It may be more important now than ever.

3 MAJOR BENEFITS OF A PLANT-BASED DIET

3 MAJOR BENEFITS OF A PLANT-BASED DIET

Considering making the switch to a plant-based diet? It’s not as hard as you may think.

A plant-based or plant-forward diet doesn’t mean you can’t eat eggs, dairy, fish or meats. It just means that you eat less of them. They become accents, not the main part of every meal. Still, it helps to think ahead whenever you want to make a change in your diet.

The best way to make the transition to plant-based eating is to create a plan for a gradual switch. Here are a few easy ways to get started.

1. Add whole grains, fruit and vegetables to your breakfast

Your plant-based plan can get an early boost at breakfast when your day begins with a bowl of oatmeal or other whole-grain cereal. Sprinkle some nuts and cinnamon on top and serve it up with a side of fruit.

Or try adding a handful of spinach and mushrooms into your scrambled eggs. You’ll find yourself on your way to a healthier day, and you’re not even out the door yet.

2. Start Meatless Mondays

Whether it’s Meatless Monday, Thursday or Sunday, begin by going meatless one day a week. It’s an easy way to start down a healthy path.

When you’ve managed to regularly make that part of your routine, choose a second day to using meat only as a side dish a small portion for added flavor.

3. Make whole fruit your go-to snack or dessert

Buy enough fruit so it’s always easy to grab or pack in a lunch for a quick snack. If it requires slicing or dicing, make time for it once a week and store it in convenient containers to reduce any obstacles to choosing them.

When it comes to dessert, garnish them with creamy yogurt, dark chocolate, crunch granola or other add-ons that elevate the fruit from a snack to a decadent treat. You can also treat yourself by choosing ones you don’t eat every day, like pineapple, kiwi or mango.

4. Pledge to try a new veggie once a week.

Maybe you’ve already jumped on the kale bandwagon, but you’ve never tried slicing up and stir-frying fennel. Or you’ve considered the kohlrabi in the produce section but aren’t sure how to use it.

Now is the time to be adventurous and try new things. A little online searching will bring a plethora of recipes for whatever you’re trying. We’re betting you will find some flavors you really like.

5. Add a good nutritional supplement

Whenever you decide to shake up your eating plan, consider adding nutritional supplements. While you figure out the best way to shift to a plant-based diet, you might be missing out on some essential nutrients.

A daily supplement, like the Nutrilite™ Men’s Pack or Nutrilite™ Women’s Pack, can help fill any nutritional gaps while you decide what foods will work for you.

Each packet of pre-portioned supplements provides 24 essential vitamins and minerals, including Nutrilite™ Concentrated Fruits and Vegetables, which provides the phytonutrient equivalent of more than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables.

Now you can see that moving toward a plant-based diet doesn’t mean having to give up all the foods you love. It means making an effort to pick more whole foods and planning plant-focused meals that can help your body stay healthier.

5 ways to enjoy a spa experience at home

5 ways to enjoy a spa experience at home

Get your home spa

Shop now

What if I said you can have a spa experience…in the comfort of your own home? If you lead a busy life, you could be struggling to make that extra appointment. Why not create that experience at home so you don’t have to worry about traffic or scheduling in yet another appointment in your calendar?

 

1. Light up some candles

If you love bubble baths, then light up some scented candles, dim the lights and soak in the tub either with a good book or some soothing music. Try some mandarin, patchouli or lavender scented candles or essential oils to calm the mind. If you have kids, get your partner to mind them by taking them out so you have some much needed peace to relax.

 

2. DIY scalp massage

Scalp massages are great for releasing tension in your head and neck and stimulating blood flow to the hair follicles. Simply warm up some hair oil and massage it in your scalp with slow and soothing hand movements massaging all the way down to your neck – play soft music to go with the massage.

 

3. Soak feet

Often we don’t realise how much our feet are neglected until they start to hurt. Immerse your feet in a bowl of warm water with some salts or essential oils and relax. Use a foot scrub to remove dead skin cells and slather your feet in some rich foot cream. Follow this relaxing soak with a cup of steaming green tea or chamomile tea to complete the spa experience.

 

4. Indulge in a body scrub

We are often in a rush to shower and move on to the next thing but in order to create a spa experience at home, definitely indulge in a body scrub. Either make your own with some sugar and olive oil or invest in a store bought one.

 

Sit in the bath to keep the mess to a minimum and start from your foot working your way up, apply the scrub in a circular motion. Scrub your arms and then gently do the same for your chest and tummy. Follow with a rich moisturising lotion after showering; try Amway’s Body Series® G & H Lotion for silky soft skin.

 

5. Mini facial

Switch on some music, and start by cleansing your skin with ARTISTRY® YOUTH XTEND™ Rich Cleansing Foam. Apply the cleanser and wipe off with some damp cotton balls or pads. The second step is to use a gentle exfoliate like ARTISTRY® essentials Polishing Scrub. Apply a toner followed by a masque like ARTISTRY® essentials Pore Cleansing Masque a special clay treatment which deep cleanses your skin and helps minimise pores. Rinse the masque off and then apply a serum and moisturising cream. Try ARTISTRY® YOUTH XTEND™ Enriching Cream for the ultimate DIY spa experience.

 

Happy relaxing!
