Mothers Day is almost here.

With Mother’s day rapidly approaching . The biggest question is what to give mom. Many people think to hard and long.

Some ideas does she like movies, dinner, flowers, hand made gifts, engraved jewelery. You can google the latest trends if your mom is trendy. Movies and lunch are inexpensive and time is usually more important than the amount of money that you spend.

I was bummed when I found out.

A while back when flushable wipes came out i was thinking thats a good thing. All the companies from Cottonelle, Scott, Kirkland, Home etc. They all advertise it. Where is the clause at the end, like the medication commercials. Saying “side effects ” are clogged drain pipes and the sewage plants.

Hygiene has always been people’s concern especially in the new era of civilization. People are now advancing from the basics of proper handwashing to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases. Anal hygiene has become the new topic of health. Wiping the anal orifice with toilet paper removes the gross fecal material, but much dirt is left in situ. Most parents wipe their infants with baby wipes, and the trend is being picked up by adults all over the world. However, while wet wipes are useful in anal hygiene, environmental concerns have raised the need for its alternative. The major disadvantages of wet wipes include:

  • Damaging sewer lines hence causing plumbing issues
  • Littering beaches and other resorts
  • Annihilating marine life

The devastating effect resulting from wet wipes has caused a global outcry against the sanitary practice. Major countries involved in the campaign against wet wipes like the US, UK, and Australia have taken bold strides even to ban flushable wet wipes in their markets. The claims that wet wipes are decomposable in water turned out to be false, and the only safe way to dispose of them would be through the regular garbage bin. Unless we want to throw wet wipes laden with feces in our bins, the following alternatives are present and recommended:

The rain has passed and the sun is shining. Outdoor activities are in full effect, from walking on the beach, surfing along the coast, bike riding on the strand, the list goes on and on. Health is on the agenda for most of us.

Please remember while your enjoying the beauty that GOD gave us , Don’t litter. Recycle what we can and lets protect the environment and the animals in it.

Happy Holidays From All of Us.

So with Christmas around the corner, the chill of winter has flourished. Have you been running around shopping like you have never given a gift before?  Are you up late, shopping online, running yourself into exhaustion so your loved ones feel blessed. Some old school home remedies are in need for some of us.

Sore throat starting? Try some warm salt water and peroxide gargle. It taste awful however it does help with that nasty bacteria in the back of our tongue and throat,.
Tired? those 15 min cat naps at lunch do help.
Do you forget to eat because you have been running around? Pack yourself a survival bag of nuts, dried fruits, crackers and plenty of water. If not you’ll be blowing up with all those comfort carbs later.

Have a blessed and safe holiday season!

A Healthy Mouth is a Happy Mouth!

We use them to talk, eat, kiss, and catch our breath — imagine what life would be without a healthy mouth. To a certain extent, doing all of these things is dependent on keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-quarter of American adults have untreated cavities. We could be doing better. Twice daily brushing and flossing is only the beginning. We’ve rounded up some of the best oral health blogs on the web to keep everyone smiling for years to come! From advice on keeping your teeth clean and cavity-free, to information on the connection between dental and heart health, you’ll find a little bit of everything on these sites.

Hope you had a great summer.


With the year flying by and a change in season underway, oral health may be the last thing on your mind. If you’ve put your hygiene on auto-pilot, however, you may want to think twice! Everyday habits could actually be harming your gums and teeth.

To keep your smile at its best, steer clear of these dental hazards:

Opening packages with your teeth, which can lead to chipped or broken teeth

Chewing on pens, pencils, fingernails or ice, which can cause your teeth to crack

Playing sports without a mouth guard, leaving your teeth exposed to potential injuries

Mouth and/or lip piercings, that can cause tooth damage as well as harbor bacteria

Medicinal cough drops and lozenges that are just as sugar-laden as candy

Avoiding these behaviors can minimize daily wear and tear and prevent costly dental problems and/or damage to prior dental work. Regular dental exams are also critical for early detection of dental issues you may not notice. If it’s been more than six months since your last check-up, schedule one now by calling 310-545-4561.
