Post run

I really fucking hate running. There, I said it.

It’s just so hard, and to quote one of my Fabulous YOU ladies, I’m as slow as a turtle running through peanut butter. Every single step feels laboured and there’s very little about the experience to enjoy.

It wasn’t always this way, a couple of years ago I started running for the first time ever and actually started to enjoy it. I did the Great North Run twice and the Great North 10k. I got injured couple of times, but I was addicted to that running high. Seeing myself run longer and faster (and as it happens, my body get skinnier and skinner) was a rush I’m sure could rival any illegal drug. I was actually reasonably good at it with average pace of between 8-9 minute miles. Having once been so much better does make it harder when you are so far behind where you once were.

So if I hate running so much, why the heck am I doing it? Good question! There’s plenty of other forms of exercise you can do to stay fit and healthy after all.

I guess the answer is that I made a commitment to do the Great North Run one last time so I could raise money for the Children’s Heart Unit Fund after what we went through with Finley. While we awaited his operation it was one small thing we felt we could do to stay focused on a positive outcome. I actually visualised myself doing the run and crossing the line to run and hug my little healthy one year old, and now #TeamFinley is ready for action.

Thinking back now I must have been cra-zy to think I could train for a half marathon while taking care of a child that will only sleep in 4 hour stretches on a good night. I’ve come so close to just giving up, and it’s took James really giving me some tough love to keep me going. I’m just at the start of a basic half marathon training plan with my furthest distance 2.4 miles. The thought of running 10 miles is completely inconceivable to me right now, but by god I’ll do it. I have given myself some slack and I’m not going to do the Newcastle Stampede 10k in October because by the time the GNR rolls round in September I will be DONE.

The reason I’m posting this is because running can be so idolised in the blogging / social media world. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with running, loving it and sharing that love, I just think that sometimes it’s good to know that there’s someone else that detests running as much as you, so if you are that person, I understand your pain!

So here is a reminder, if you don’t enjoy running, do something else! There are loads of different forms of exercise to choose from, pick one (or more!) that you love. I fully intend to never run again (except for a fun run or something similar) after I’ve done these races I have coming up. NOTE TO SELF!

I’m hoping that the badass feeling you get after running will eventually kick in, but until then I’ve been doing some things in an attempt to make it more enjoyable:

  • Walk – if I need to walk, I’ll stop and walk
  • Podcasts – The High Tea Cast, Lucky Bitch, Balanced Bites are my current faves
  • Doing it as a team – James is so much speedier than me (damn his long legs!) but knowing that not only he, but my Dad and bro and sis in law are all doing it too is very encouraging!
  • Totally awesome playlists – David Guetta, Daft Punk and Rihanna all do it for me when I’m running
  • New workout clothes – something to make me feel like a gazelle please
  • The promise of a regular slice of cake each week once I’m doing over 3 miles – yes I reward myself with food, this situation demands it! 😉

Unlike previous GNRs, this time I have no desire to run a sub 2 hour, or indeed any kind of time goal. Finishing the line in one piece will be good enough for me!

Are you a fan of running? Have you ever set yourself up to do something where you’ve really had to push through the pain? Is there anything in life where you’ve done better at in the past and have had to face it again?

There are risks and benefits involved in participating in clinical trials, and you should consider all of them before deciding to sign up. The benefits of clinical trials include access to treatments not available to the public and expert care at some of the best medical facilities.

A diagnosis can be overwhelming, and the difficult decisions must be made quickly. In the treatment of disease, you might feel the medical community makes the decisions and you are simply along for the ride.

How to Develop Healthy Sleep Habits in College

Getting a good night’s rest each day seems impossible while attending Northeastern University. There’s a lot to be done daily and with so little time, you may frequently overlap your wake and sleep hours. But doing so will cause you to become sleep deprived, which can potentially alter your mental state and your ability to pass your courses. You work hard to get through each semester, so why risk the chances of failing due to lack of sleep?

If you’re studying GW’s online public relations degree, then make sure to keep the following college sleep tips in mind. But first, let’s do a quick overview of why sleep is so important.

Why You Need Lots of Rest

You hear all the time how important sleep is, but few people actually adhere to this. They feel they are supermen and superwomen, who are capable of functioning without getting sufficient amounts of sleep. You may be able to get through this for a few days or even weeks, but in the long run, you’re going to end up with various mental and physical handicaps.

When your body doesn’t get enough rest, it causes mental lapses, such as issues with memory and the onset of sleep disorders. It can even lead to physical problems, like weight gain and a compromised immune system, causing you to get the cold or flu easier and more often. So this is even more reason why you should get plenty of sleep – you can’t afford to miss days of class!

How to Develop Good Sleep Habits

The key to getting enough sleep in college is forming healthy daily habits. There are many things college students do that refrain them from getting good amounts of rest. But if you’re committed to making sure your mind and body is well-rested, then the following tips should be kept in mind:

  • Don’t consume caffeinated drinks in the evening and limit how much you drink during the day. As you know, caffeine wires your nerves, which gives you an artificial energy. This will make it hard for you to fall asleep at night. Plus, these drinks are normally packed with sugar, which is another false energy stimulant.
  • Don’t drink alcohol before going to sleep. Some people think that drinking alcohol is good before bed because it helps them fall asleep. The problem is that it will be hard to wake up and your brain will be dehydrated, which causes hangover symptoms.
  • Avoid sleeping in on the weekend. This will throw off your biological clock. It’s good to stick to a similar schedule you do throughout the school week.
  • Stop studying at least 30 minutes before bedtime, so your mind has time to wind down. This will also prevent you from studying past your bedtime.
  • Never watch TV before going to sleep. This interrupts your brain waves and makes it hard to fall asleep.

It’s good to start working on healthy sleep habits as soon as possible, so you can make it through college mentally and physically stable.

Show the World Just How Good You Feel on the Inside

It’s no surprise that living a well-balanced lifestyle is the best way to staying healthy. However, the challenge can often be looking as healthy as you feel. If you are looking for ways to show the world how good you feel, we have you covered.

 Microdermabrasion has fast become the go-to treatment for those wanting to express their inner health through their appearance due to its scientific and non-invasive approach. Using a small wand which glides over the face, microcrystals are sprayed onto and then immediately removed from the skin, taking with them the outer layer of dead skin cells which have been damaged by the elements. The appeal of this treatment lies with its benefits being that it only removes the skin cells which are preventing the natural and healthy skin you worked hard for to shine through.

 A new and up-and-coming treatment known as an LED facial uses a combination of four controlled wavelengths of UV-free light, including a blue light which works as an anti-bacterial treatment for your skin. The aimed result is a boost to your body’s natural collagen production. These treatments are seeing increased popularity for those looking to treat acne and are widely available throughout professional salons who provide facial treatments in the Chicago area.

 Of course, the most well-known of treatments which have been helping people look as good as they feel is a face peel. Despite how the name may sound, these are undertaken using purpose designed and specific chemicals which work to exfoliate and improve the appearance of your face, neck, and even hands. The skin which grows in replacement is smoother and younger looking, helping you to show the world the energized person you feel inside.

 Many people who feel like their appearance doesn’t reflect how they feel inside find these treatments give them a great confidence boost, leading them to finally be able to show the world just how good they feel and just how healthy they are. Speak with a qualified provider of one of the above mentioned treatments and find out which service is right for your needs.

Kamagra – A Better and Cheaper Viagra Alternative

Generic drugs have become popular these days. However, they have already been on the market for quite a long time. However, what we really do not know or even sure about is how effective these generic drugs can be. Generally speaking, these drugs are known to be biologically equivalent to the so-called brand name drugs that are generally more expensive. They have similar compositions, but they are sold at a relatively lower price.

Let’s take for example the case of Kamagra. It is the generic counterpart of Viagra. It is readily available through different online retailers. Due to the overall popularity of Viagra, a lot of manufacturers have found ways to create a generic counterpart which can provide the very same effects, at a lower price point.

Kamagra Uses

Just like Viagra, kamagra is used for treating issues such as erectile dysfunction among men. It is known as sildenafil citrate by its generic name. It is unquestionably a cost effective supplement which has the very same active ingredient as Viagra and still work effectively. The strength, quality, and dosage of both Kamagra and Viagra are just the same.

After Viagra became successful, kamagra was created in order to allow men who cannot afford the better-known pill to still take advantage of the benefits of the product. However, it is best to note that this product should never be taken without a prescription from your doctor. After all, if unguided, you may encounter certain side effects in using the product. These side effects include mild nausea, headache, as well as mild dehydration. It may also be dangerous if you are taking other prescriptive medications, especially those that contain nitrates. With these reasons, it is indeed quite important to make sure that you are only taking kamagra under the approval of your doctor.

Is It Effective?

Other men may be hesitant to buy kamagra because they are relatively cheaper. This implies that it may not be as effective to the original Viagra pill. However, this is how it actually works as the original manufacturing company creates a new drug, it creates two names for the drug. One is a generic name, basically, the chemical compound used in the drug, as well as the brand name.

Given this explanation, kamagra, as the generic form of Viagra, only differs the latter by its brand name. However, basically, they are just the same. Even though it is available at a cheaper price, it does not mean that the quality of the manufacturing has already been compromised. In fact, it has the very same main ingredients in Viagra, which means that you can still expect that better quality erection after taking this pill.

Check for a list of options in getting this drug. Even though you are purchasing online, it is still important that your medical profile is checked accordingly. After all, you surely would not want to put your health at risk. Discuss your options with your physician.

What Is Adrenal Fatigue?

Adrenal fatigue is the condition by which the adrenal glands stop functioning optimally. Chronic stress or a bout with a serious illness can compromise the function of the adrenal glands, which typically results in the feel of general lack of wellness, fatigue, headache, aches, and even reduced ability to concentrate. If you believe you may be suffering from adrenal fatigue in Houston, TX, the following information will help you understand this little-known condition.

Stress and Your Adrenal Glands

Adrenal fatigue is linked to chronic stress. In fact, chronic stress is linked to many health problems, so it doesn’t surprise many that it can impact the optimum function of the adrenal glands. Adrenal glands are associated with the body’s response to stress. The adrenal glands moderate the stress response and also regulate other hormones. Chronic stress can cause the adrenal glands to trigger the release of cortisol. Cortisol causes the body to enter a feeling of emergency. Remaining in this emergency state for too long can deplete adrenal function and result in what has come to be known as adrenal fatigue.

Elevated Cortisol Levels

According to research, elevated cortisol levels can impact many of the body’s functions by disrupting their function. People often experience sleep disturbances, digestive problems, reduced immunity, and poor concentration. Moods, sex drive, appetite, and other aspects of life may also suffer as a result of elevated cortisol levels. Once a person’s adrenal glands begin to function at a decreased level, they will invariably feel tired, run down and generally unwell. Fortunately, the adrenal glands can heal, but it may take time.

Treating Adrenal Fatigue

People who lead busy stressful lives may be vulnerable to adrenal fatigue. Treatment and wellness centers can help people recover from adrenal fatigue, but it’s essential to reduce stress and learn new strategies for coping with stress in order to support adrenal function. Sufferers should also strive to get regular sleep–anywhere between eight and ten hours each night is vital for recovery. If you are suffering from this condition, you should also strive to improve your diet by limiting your intake of sugary foods, carbohydrates, and caffeine.

Adrenal fatigue can be managed and overcome, but it requires time, rest, and a reduction of stress. You may also wish to visit a treatment center that can provide you with customized care and treatments.

History Of Tryptophan

From 1980 until 1990 tryptophan was by far the most popular and respected natural sleep aid available at health food stores. In early1990 the United States Food and Drug Administration decided to remove all the tryptophan from health food store shelves due to a sudden outbreak of an illness called Eosinophilic-myalgia syndrome that occurred among some individuals who had taken the natural sleep aid. After the United States government decided to ban the product most of the other industrialized countries soon followed the lead. Ultimately almost five thousand people reported getting sick and twenty seven people died from the serious illness. The symptoms included muscle pain, weakness, and severe joint pain. A lengthy investigation determined that the problem was a contaminated batch that was manufactured by a Japanese company called Showa Denko KK, which had recently changed a production process to incorporate genetically engineered bacteria. The ban remained in effect until two thousand and one.

In February of 2001, the Food and Drug Administration finally decided to lift the ban on selling tryptophan, but kept an importation restriction. Meaning all had to be manufactured within the United States borders. This is the statement that they released:

“Based on the scientific evidence that is available at the present time, we cannot determine with certainty that the occurrence of EMS in susceptible persons consuming L-tryptophan supplements derives from the content of L-tryptophan, an impurity contained in the L-tryptophan, or a combination of the two in association with other, as yet unknown, external factors.”

Since 2002, tryptophan has been readily available again in the United States and no reports of Eosinophilic-myalgia syndrome have been reported. Most other industrialized countries have followed the United States as well. There are definitely manufacturing companies currently making high quality tryptophan products. I believe it is currently safe for people to use. It is a main precursor of the well known sleep-inducing substances serotonin and melatonin. This means it is one of the raw materials that the human brain uses to manufacture these very important and needed relaxing neurotransmitters. By taking it in supplement form we are making more available to produce the neurotransmitters that are absolutely necessary to induce deep sleep. With out proper deep sleep we a re very susceptible to many serious health conditions. Sleep is of the utmost importance.

Melatonin is currently the most popular and well respected of the natural sleeping aids available. It is a more direct precursor to serotonin than is tryptophan. Melatonin is also much cheaper. I almost always will recommend melatonin to my clients as the first thing to try to resolve sleep problems naturally. But one thing I have found is that for some reason the people that do not respond well to melatonin can sometimes find it effective. For many people it is a useful natural sleep aid, but tryptophan has never really regained the popularity that it once enjoyed prior to 1990. And, yes there is large amount of it in turkey meat. It is why we feel so sleepy after thanksgiving dinner.

How to Naturally Fight Inflammation in the Body

While many people know that inflammation in the body can cause pain for those with arthritis, it also causes other diseases and damage to the body. Inflammation is caused when tissues in the body are damaged by bacteria, toxins, trauma, and heat, among other causes. The damage then causes cells to release chemicals like histamine, prostaglandins and bradykinin. These chemicals result in blood vessels leaking into the tissues in your body, which causes swelling.

Fortunately, there are many ways to prevent and treat inflammation. People who have problems with inflammation can take over-the-counter medicines or prescription medications to help reduce the symptoms. For those who prefer natural treatments, they can add anti-inflammatory foods to their diet or take natural anti-inflammatory supplements.

Anti-Inflammatory Foods

There are several foods that can be added to your diet that are known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Animal based Omega 3s can help fight inflammation, they can also prevent eye damage caused by aging and they are also important for brain health. Fatty fish like wild salmon, sardines, kippers and fish or krill oils are excellent sources of Omega 3s.

Foods high in antioxidants are a good way to help fight inflammation. Antioxidants help prevent cell damage, which can help prevent the release of chemicals that trigger inflammation. Dark, leafy green vegetables like kale, collard greens and spinach not only have antioxidants to help fight cell damage, but they also contain Vitamin C and flavonoids that can also prevent cell damage.

Some of the other foods you might want to add or eat more of in your diet includes blueberries, garlic, shitake mushrooms and fermented foods like kimchee, sauerkraut, miso, pickles, olives and kefir. Along with preventing cell damage, fermented foods help to rebuild the levels of beneficial bacteria in your stomach to improve your immune system and prevent inflammation.

Anti-Inflammatory Supplements

Many natural supplements made from spices like turmeric can help fight inflammation in your body too. Turmeric is an Indian spice that is primarily used in curries. It is what gives them their yellow colour. Curcumin, which also has anti-inflammatory properties, is a substance found in turmeric that is extracted and can be made into a supplement. Curcumin from Australian NaturalCare helps to fight inflammation and pain.

Curcumin is also being researched because there is a possibility that along with being a reliable anti-inflammatory that it can help fight cancer, regulate blood sugar, prevent fat accumulation and slow down the effects of Alzheimer’s disease. People who have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis can take this supplement to help reduce the swelling of inflammation and get pain relief from this natural supplement as well.

Anti-inflammatory drugs can cause liver damage when used long-term, but adding these anti-inflammatory foods and taking natural anti-inflammatory supplements have few, if any, long-term effects. The supplements should be taken as directed to receive the most benefit from them and the foods can be freely eaten in your diet. Fighting inflammation in a natural way can help you to prevent more damage to your body.


Stimulate The Metabolism With Bitter Orange Fruit

Bitter orange refers to a citrus tree and the fruit that it produces. Many types of bitter oranges are used for essential oil, which is used in both perfume and in flavoring. Bitter orange is also used in herbal medicine as both a stimulant and an appetite suppressant. It is responsible for replacing ephedra, the banned stimulant that was once used in many herbal weight-loss products. Bitter orange also goes by the names sour orange, bigarade orange, and Seville orange. The bitter orange plant is native to northeastern India. However, it is also grown in southern Europe, southern China, and the United States. The flesh of the orange fruit is both bitter and sour.

The unripe bitter orange fruit is referred to as the narthangai, which is commonly used in Southern Indian food. This is especially true of Tamil cusine. The unripe fruit can be pickled by cutting it into spirals and stuffing it salt. The fresh fruit is used frequently in pachadis, while the juice from the ripe fruit is used as a marinade for meat in Cuban cooking. The peel of the bitter orange fruit can also become an ingredient in bitters, while the Belgian Witbier is a beer made from wheat that is spiced with the peel of bitter orange. The bitter orange peel is also used by the Finnish in their gingerbread preparations and by the Nordic in their mulled wine.

Bitter orange was used in traditional Chinese medicine as a tonic and also a remedy for dyspepsia. Additionally, it was used to relieve abdominal distension and diarrhea and for blood in the stool. In Europe, bitter orange flowers and oil have been recommended to be used as a sedative and as a remedy for gastrointestinal ailments, nervous conditions, gout, insomnia, and sore throat. This plant has been used for other conditions such as toxic and anaphylactic shock, cancer, and cardiac conditions. Bitter orange has also been used by Brazilians as an anticonvulsant for anxiety and insomnia.

Now, the extract of bitter orange is most often used in dietary supplements as an aid to fat loss and as an appetite suppressant. After the implication of ephedra was discovered in cardiac events in some consumers, the Food and Drug administration banned the sale of any dietary supplement which contained that herb in 2004. Because of this, many supplement makers have altered their weight-loss products so that they offer ephedra-free formulas which contain bitter orange extract instead. The safety of these products is being monitored due to the synephrine content in bitter orange.

The fruit of the bitter orange plant is used to provide antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflamamtory, antispasmodic, cholagogue, demulcent, sedative, tonic, tranquilizer, and vascular stimulant properties. The primary nutrients found in this extract include flavanones, octopamine, synephrine, and tyramine. Primarily, bitter orange has been shown to be effective in dealing with anxiety, cancer, cardiac conditions, dyspepsia, gastrointestinal issues, gout, insomnia, nervous conditions, shock, and sore throat. For more information on the beneficial effects of bitter orange fruit, please contact a representative from your local health food store.

Bitter orange is available in capsule of tablet forms at your local or internet health food store. Always look for name brands preferably products that are standardized to ensure the active ingredients are in each server.

Gluten Free Diet Used To Help Type 1 & 2 Diabetics

Diabetics’ type 1 and type 2, who are living a gluten free lifestyle are seeing a significant difference in their diabetes and how they approach the overall care of diabetes.

A protein fraction of gluten (Triticum aestivum) found in wheat is linked to islet damage in diabetics. Gluten is an ingredient that is found in flour and other grains, giving food its elasticity and texture. Gluten is found in large majority of grains making it very hard on those with Gluten Intolerance (GI) and their families.

People with type 1 diabetes seem to be the most affected by wheat glutens however diabetic’s with type 2 diabetes show remarkable changes in their blood sugar levels when they also completely switch over to a gluten free diet.

Changing over to a gluten free home requires getting rid of just about 95+% of all food items in your home. The list is long of the foods that contain gluten and then the need to replace these foods with gluten free foods can be a challenge. Gluten free foods are now found at local grocery and health food stores but it is still necessary to do a large portion of the cooking in our own homes.

Finding gluten free foods and recipes that my whole family would eat three meals a day was a challenge until I read about a former executive chef and owner of a 100% gluten-free, sugar-free, low-glycemic, organic, allergy-friendly restaurant, who compiled all her recipes into a delicious gluten-free cookbook. My family of course was won over by the desserts! This cookbook has made the transition to a gluten free lifestyle so much easier.

How to Get Skinny Without Diet or Exercise

Losing weight presents a challenge for many people. Some have tried dieting and given up, while others simply wish they were thinner. It is hard to hold yourself back from foods that you like, and exercising requires a lot of exertion, so the easiest way to lose weight is to engage in tips that do not require either one.

Top six beauty mistakes

Are you getting your make up wrong? Here are the top six make up sins for you to avoid.

Top six beauty mistakes

Put down your lip liner and step away from the mirror. That overdrawn mouth – along with war-paint blush and spidery lashes – has made the most-unwanted list.

Garish blush

“It’s that whole 80s contouring thing,” make-up artist Jenna Anton says. “People suck in their cheeks, make that fish face, and then put blush under their cheekbones. That’s the wrong place. Blush should be on the apples of the cheeks.” Beyond the placement faux pas, there are also colour blunders. “Blush should barely be seen,” make-up artist Jay Jay Rauwenhoff says. “It should be rosy or peachy on the face, not fuchsia circles.” Chronic blush abusers should stick to easily blended cream formulas.

The wrong base shade

It isn’t easy being green, but it’s even worse being burnt sienna when you’re really Celtic ivory. “Wrong foundation colour is probably the biggest mistake women make,” Conlon says. “Test the colour on the jawbone before going outside with a mirror to see how it looks in natural light.”

Bronze face, pale body

Make-up artist Dick Page calls it the “floating head”. To remedy the situation, “Dab cream bronzer along the collarbones, on the sides of the neck, and a bit on the boobs,” Page says.

Obvious lip liner

Lip liner is meant to be functional, not decorative. If your lipstick slips, feathers or bleeds, you need lip liner, “but use a pencil that matches your natural lip colour,” Burford says.

Spider-leg lashes

“It doesn’t matter what the look is on the catwalk, clumpy lashes are never in,” make-up artist Yolanda Lukowski says. To apply mascara, “wedge the brush right near the roots of the lashes and wiggle it back and forth before pulling outwards. Use a mascara comb right after application to remove any clumps.”

Make-up trowel

Foundation, especially powder, can become heavy, throwing every crease and wrinkle into relief. “You look younger with less coverage, so wear as sheer a foundation as you can,” Lukowski says.

How to Stabilize the Muscles in a Weak Shoulder

Weak shoulders are a surefire way to get injured quickly. Your shoulder is the most mobile joint in your whole body, but in order to be so mobile the joint cavity it sits in is very shallow, putting it at a high risk of injury. The key to strengthening your weak shoulder is to perform stabilization exercises in your routine. Add 10 minutes of shoulder stability work at the end of each upper body session.

Stabilize your shoulder joint to prevent injury.

Items you will need

  • Cable machine
  • Resistance bands
  • Adjustable dumbbells

Step 1Set the pulley on a cable station to head-height and attach a rope handle to it. Hold the rope at arms length and take a step back so there’s tension on the cable. Pull the handle toward your head by squeezing your shoulder blades together and flexing your elbows. Bring it as close to your face as you can then finish the move by rotating your shoulders to bring your hands in-line with your ears and return slowly to the start position. Face pulls are the most underrated exercise ever, claims corrective exercise specialist Mike Robertson. They hit your lower and mid trapezius muscles which are responsible for shoulder stability.

Step 2Lie on your right side holding a dumbbell in your left hand with your elbow bent to 90 degrees. Place your elbow on your hip and lift the dumbbell up by turning your shoulder out. Perform all your reps on one side then switch to the other. Dumbbell external rotations increase shoulder stability by fixing any imbalances. Many people suffer from internal rotation of the shoulder joint, caused by sitting at a computer all day so external rotations help to restore muscular balance.

Step 3Grab a light resistance band and hold it out in front with your arms straight, ready to perform band pull aparts. Bring the band to your chest by pulling your arms apart without bending them. Squeeze your shoulder blades hard, pause for a second with the band lightly touching your chest then return to the start. Pull aparts strengthen your upper back and shoulders and reverse internal rotation of the joint. David Allen, collegiate strength coach and owner of NBS Fitness advises switching your hand position and performing pull aparts in an upright position, bent over and overhead to hit the muscles from all angles.


  • Keep the weight fairly light on all exercises and focus on maintaining perfect technique. Using too much weight can lead to poor form which will only exacerbate your weakness.

Why Should Children Play Sports?

Why Should Children Play Sports?

Sports, whether team-based or individual, are a great activity for children that provide a variety of benefits other than physical activity. Participation in sports can help build self-esteem and confidence, can motivate children to excel academically and can help build social skills. Participation also can teach children the benefits of goal-setting and practice.

Physical Activity

Physical activity is the most obvious benefit of sports participation. Children often spend too much time watching television or playing video games. But sports practices and games provide an opportunity for exercise that can help keep kids in shape and healthy.

Social Skills

Sports participation can help children develop social skills that will benefit them throughout their entire lives. They learn to interact not only with other children their age, but also with older individuals in their coaches and sports officials. Kids learn leadership skills, team-building skills and communication skills that will help them in school, their future career and personal relationships.


Participation in sports can have a huge positive impact on a child's self-esteem and confidence. Children who participate in sports get praise and encouragement from coaches and parents, which helps to build self-confidence. They also learn to trust in their own abilities and push themselves. Constructive criticism is also a major part of sports participation, and young athletes learn to accept such criticism and use it to their benefit. The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry suggests that parents be actively involved to ensure that children get the most out of sports participation.

Academic Success

It is no surprise that children who participate in athletics excel in academics as well. They can apply the same principles of dedication and hard work learned through sports participation to their studies. According to an article published on the website America, playing on a high school sports team increases a young woman's chances of graduating from college by 41 percent.

Lifelong Health

Sports participation promotes health and wellness not only through childhood but throughout a child lifetime.Sports such as swimming and golf are especially beneficial because the child can continue to play as an adult, benefiting from the physical activity. Children who participate in sports might also be more aware of healthy food choices. Although sports participation is an excellent avenue to promote health and wellness, parents and coaches must encourage healthy living and be positive role models as well.

Tips for Effective Soccer Shooting

Here are a few tips to help you make every shot count:

Soccer shooting tips:

  • Observe the goalkeeper’s position. Have they left a gap that you can exploit?
  • Select the best technique for your shot. A sidefoot shot will have greater accuracy, but an instep (laces) with good follow-through will have greater power.
  • Put your non-kicking foot alongside the ball.
  • Keep your head down and your eyes on the ball when striking.
  • Keep your body over the ball.
  • Make contact with the middle to top half of the ball.
  • Maintain your composure.

Tips to improve your chance of scoring:

  • Shoot wide rather than high. There’s a better chance of getting a deflection that will wrong-foot the goalkeeper.
  • Shoot low. It’s harder for a keeper to reach shots along the ground because it’s further for them to travel. It’s easy for them to jump up and save, but much harder to crouch down and get it.
  • Shoot across the keeper. It’s tougher for them to hold these shots, and means they could divert the ball back into the path of another attacker.

Where Are the Most Shots Made?

Ever wondered if there’s actually a “sweet spot” in a soccer goal? A place where you could kick the ball and it would go in almost every time?

Well, there may not be a definitive “sweet spot,” but a recent study did take a look at where scored goals most often went into the net. Here are the results:

  • Top Left: 8 percent
  • Top Center: 4 percent
  • Top Right: 5 percent

Ouch. As you can see, shooting high means you have a pretty low percentage of actually scoring.

  • Middle Left: 7 percent
  • Middle Center: 8 percent
  • Middle Right: 6 percent

While you have a better chance of scoring if you shoot to the middle than up high, the odds still aren’t much in your favor.

  • Bottom Left: 22 percent
  • Bottom Center: 21 percent
  • Bottom Right: 19 percent

Look at these stats: 62 percent of all goals were scored low. This makes sense because it is very difficult for goalkeepers, especially tall ones, to get down to the ground. It’s much easier and more natural for them to jump high.

Also, looking at the statistics, 67 percent of goals were scored in the corners versus 33 percent down the middle. If you combine the two statistics and shoot low into the corner, you should have a much greater success rate in scoring goals.

As with any soccer technique, you need to practice if you want to improve your shooting skills. Fortunately, the techniques used for shooting are similar to those used for passing. So you can build up two vital soccer techniques at the same time.

But most importantly: If you see the goal, shoot!

This one piece of advice is important enough to reiterate: You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take. If you see an opportunity to shoot, take it! The only way these tips can help you is if you implement them, both in practice and in games.

Lack of sleep affects decisions

A new US study has shown that decision making is compromised by a lack of sleep.

Lack of sleep affects decisions

A new US study shows lack of sleep can be dangerous for those whose jobs require fast decisions – not to mention anyone who may be affected by those decisions.

The study looked at 49 US military cadets and how sleep deprivation affected their ability to react quickly. The cadets performed a set of tasks twice – once when they were well-rested, and then again when they were sleep-deprived.

Their accuracy on the tests declined by 2.4 per cent when sleep-deprived and improved by 4.3 per cent when they were well rested.

The findings are of particular concern among firefighters, police officers, soldiers and others who work in a sleep-deprived state, researchers at the University of Texas say.


First of all, let’s talk about the definition of diet. Diet is defined by Merriam-Webster as “food and drink regularly provided or consumed; habitual nourishment.” So, no, we’re not talking about a “diet” here that deals with no carbs, low carbs, cabbage, cookies, etc. Diet here is referred to as daily sustenance. So whatever this person is consuming on a regular basis isn’t helping them reach their fitness goals. You can spend several hours a day at the gym working your absolute hardest, but if you go home and slam fast food and pizza all day, you’re being counterproductive. Plain and simple, you will not see optimal results if you are overeating and making poor food choices, no matter how much time you invest in the gym. Make sense?

Sleep key to weight loss

Getting a good night’s sleep may curb those cravings.

Sleep key to weight loss

Researchers at Stanford University in the US have found healthy sleep patterns help balance the hormones responsible for food cravings and overeating.

Ghrelin is the hormone that stimulates hunger and is created when we fast for several hours. Leptin is the hormone produced when we eat, and it creates feelings of satiety that shut down our hunger centre, thereby forcing ghrelin levels to drop.

Studies have found that people who get five hours’ or less sleep a night have higher ghrelin and lower leptin levels than those who get eight hours’ sleep a night. People who were sleep deprived had greater cravings for carbohydrate-rich junk foods. Lack of sleep also led to leptin resistance, which results in the body being unable to burn fat effectively, leading to weight gain.

Melatonin (the sleep hormone) has been shown to help restore leptin sensitivity. When you are sleep deprived you don’t secrete enough melatonin.

How Does Playing Sports Make You More Healthy?

How Does Playing Sports Make You More Healthy?

There’s no doubt that playing sports can potentially benefit your health. Some of the benefits are more obvious, but you may be surprised to find out that you can benefit not just physically, but emotionally as well. Before starting any new sport or exercise regimen, though, consult your doctor to make sure it’s safe for you.

Physical Health

Most sports involve a certain level of physical activity; some more, some less, but all typically get your heart pumping faster at least part of the time. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends all adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise each week, or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity each week, to help stave off chronic diseases such as diabetes, arthritis and heart disease. Of course, it’s still important to check with your doctor before embarking on any new sport.

Mind-Body Benefits

The most obvious benefit to playing sports is the benefit to your physical body, but sports can help your mind stay healthier too. In fact, researchers at the University of Edinburgh found that older people who participate in sports and exercise had significantly less brain shrinkage overall — a sign of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease — than those who didn’t do as much exercise.

Healthier Relationships

Most sports involve working cohesively in a team environment. Even sports with individual scores, such as swimming, have a team-building component, such as when that swim team goes to a swim meet in another city. With that team component can come more cooperation skills, more focus and more commitment, reminds the Yale Medical Group. All of that can lead to healthier relationships with other people and a healthier outlook on life.

Success in Life

Numerous studies have shown that participating in sports also correlates to more success in school and work. A report from the Centre for Economic Policy Research, as reported in the Wall Street Journal, found that people who participated in sports earned higher pay. Students who participate in sports also tend to have higher grade point averages, better attendance and a higher likelihood of going to college, suggests Dr. David Geier, a sports injury physician based in South Carolina. More success in these areas can lead to a number of better outcomes, including better access to health care and more resources to deal with health-related issues when they arise.

The Health Benefits of Sport and Physical Activity

The Report from the United Nations Inter-Agency Task Force on Sport for Development and Peace states that young people can benefit from physical activity as it contributes to developing healthy bones, efficient heart and lung function as well as improved motor skills and cognitive function. Physical activity can help to prevent hip fractures among women and reduce the effects of osteoporosis. Remaining physically active can enhance functional capacity among older people, and can help to maintain quality of life and independence.

Physical activity and psychosocial health

The WHO has estimated that “one in four patients visiting a health service has at least one mental, neurological or behavioural disorder, but most of these disorders are neither diagnosed nor treated”. A number of studies have shown that exercise may play a therapeutic role in addressing a number of psychological disorders. Studies also show that exercise has a positive influence on depression. Physical self-worth and physical self-perception, including body image, has been linked to improved self-esteem. The evidence relating to health benefits of physical activity predominantly focuses on intra-personal factors such as physiological, cognitive and affective benefits, however, that does not exclude the social and inter-personal benefits of sport and physical activity which can also produce positive health effects in individuals and communities.

Sport and Physical Activity as part of a Healthy Lifestyle

A number of factors influence the way in which sport and physical activity impacts on health in different populations. Sport and physical activity in itself may not directly lead to benefits but, in combination with other factors, can promote healthy lifestyles. There is evidence to suggest that changes in the environment can have a significant impact on opportunities for participation and in addition, the conditions under which the activity is taking place can heavily impact on health outcomes. Elements that may be determinants on health include nutrition, intensity and type of physical activity, appropriate footwear and clothing, climate, injury, stress levels and sleep patterns.

Sport and physical activity can make a substantial contribution to the well-being of people in developing countries. Exercise, physical activity and sport have long been used in the treatment and rehabilitation of communicable and non-communicable diseases. Physical activity for individuals is a strong means for the prevention of diseases and for nations is a cost-effective method to improve public health across populations.



10 workouts under 10 minutes

As I’ve been mentioning in my Eat, Move, Wear, Love, Link weekly round up posts, I’ve had a distinct lack of ‘move’ recently. Of course having a baby is a pretty decent excuse for not hitting the gym, but now that Finley is almost 3 months old and we have had his heart surgery out the way I feel it’s time to refocus on it. For me, working out is not about burning calories it’s about changing my body shape, making me feel fit and strong, and more recently, to give me an endorphin feel good hormone boost.

Time is really hard to find when you have a new born, but perhaps it’s having a busy job or lots going on in life that is your challenge. These 10 minute workouts require either no or minimal equipment so can be done fairly easily anywhere. 10 minutes might not sound like a lot, but when it’s all the time you have it’s better than nothing and can actually be quite effective, especially if it enables you to fit in a couple of workouts in the day, for example morning and evening. You could also do a couple of workouts back to back, for example a cardio focused workout and a toning workout for more complete exercise. If you do have a little more time then check out my 30 workouts under 30 minutes post.

How To Get A Bigger Butt With Soy

In my 20 years of being a fitness instructor my clients always ask “How do I get a Bigger Buttocks?” I have found Soy Protein to be a solution for acquiring larger buttocks. This excellent source of complete protein is helping to reduce the over-weight epidemic and also increase muscle mass on the buttocks. By decreasing calories and managing protein intake it may be possible to understand the dietary factors associated with hunger control and weight management. Soy is a source of high-quality protein that helps you eat less often and decreases hunger. Thus this will overall make you weigh less but in fact the buttock becomes larger. Soy protein helps to maintain muscle mass during weight loss or body building programs. Here’s what nutritionists are saying about soy protein.

Soy is a fast-digesting, high-quality protein source with a superior amino acid profile (it’s high in argentine and glutamine as well as the branched-chain amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine), and isoflavones are powerful antioxidants with multiple health benefits. Soy adds womanly curves and is recommended for women who need to gain weight in the feminine areas. Such areas as the hips, thighs, legs and buttocks region. In addition, the rumor is that soy has estrogen-like effects is true. In fact, a recent study found that bodybuilders who consumed soy protein shakes twice a day for 12 weeks had a significant change in estrogen levels, and they gained much more muscle mass on the buttocks, legs and thighs than test subjects who supplemented with whey protein. For best results, look for a soy protein blend and take 20 grams before workouts and another 20-40 grams after.
Soy protein-containing foods (and beverages) can help Americans design a daily diet that meets these goals”, says Greg Paul, Ph.D., director of health and nutrition for The Solae Company. Soy protein, unlike other sources of protein, is not only low in fat, but is also cholesterol-free. Scientific research also indicates that protein provides greater satiety–the feeling of being full–than fat or carbohydrates, which can certainly aid in weight management issues.” The US Food and Drug Administration approved the health claim that “25 g of soy protein a day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease”. Soybeans have over 40 different nutritional compounds. Various soy ingredients are made from the soybean. These ingredients have different nutritional and functional properties. Soy protein is a useful ingredient for high protein snacks such as energy bars and drink mixes. As research shows Soy also helps to increase the size of female and male buttocks.

Soy isoflavones have also shown that they are good anti-oxidants and help protect the cardiovascular system from bad cholesterol or LDLs. Studies have shown that another element of soy isoflavones is genistein, which protect plaque growth in the arteries. Independent research has also proven that soy isoflavones build bone density and help keep bones from deterioration due to the compound daidzein along with genistein. New studies are researching the benefits of soy isoflavones in the prevention of cancer, particularly breast and prostate. Other research suggests that soy isoflavones may be effective for fighting cancer as well as pharmaceutical drugs.

The best way to take advantage of soy isoflavones is by eating soy products, including tofu, textured soy protein, soymilk, and by eating the beans themselves. Soy foods are considered by many nutritionists as a ‘perfect’ food. Not only do they contain soy isoflavones in abundant supply, they are a good source of all major vitamins and protein. Soy foods can replace meat, especially red meat, in almost any recipe. No longer found only in health food stores, soy foods can be purchased in almost any grocery store and even in some convenience stores as well. Soy foods are a staple of the vegetarian and vegan diets; many who live without consuming meat claim fewer problems with blood pressure, cholesterol and obesity.

There are many ways of increasing the buttocks size. The Brazilian butt lift has become a popular procedure in the US. Excess fat is taken from various parts of the body then is put into the buttocks. The surgery is very effective although there are major health risks including death. Certain self-help books on today’s market can naturally increase the buttocks size with Soy Protein and exercise. A popular book called The System – Build a Better Body by Octavia Lopez has focused on this subject. The book has taken the effects of Soy Protein/Soy Milk and combined exercise. Dr. Renee Lombardi and her staff in conjunction with other medical doctors performed clinical trials of The System. Showing an average of 3-5 inches gained on the buttocks.

How to Lose Weight Fast Without Exercise

How to Lose Weight Fast Without Exercise
Many people want to shed excess pounds and maintain a healthy weight. Unfortunately, not everyone has time to work out on a regular basis. Between work, school and family, there isn’t enough time in the day. However, there are different ways to lose weight fast without exercise. But to achieve your weight-loss goals, you’ve got to stick with a plan.

How Does Playing Sports Affect Your Health?

From pickup games in a driveway or backyard, through recreational leagues and all the way up to highly competitive leagues at the college and professional levels, millions of Americans play sports every year. Each athlete has his own reasons for playing a sport, be it the competition, socializing with other people or the glory he finds on the playing field. Another factor that drives many athletes is the effects on their health from playing sports. Depending on the sport and the athlete, there are both positive and negative effects on your health.

Mental and Emotional Benefits

Playing sports affects your mental and emotional health due to the physiological effects that exercise has on the body. Jasper Smits, director of the Anxiety Research and Treatment Program at Southern Methodist University, and Michael Otto, psychology professor at Boston University, analyzed the results of dozens of studies involving exercise and mental health, and concluded that exercise can help reduce depression and anxiety, and can be especially beneficial to people who lack access to traditional treatments, such as drugs or counseling. Smits and Otto recommend not only focusing on the long-term gains provided by physical activity, but also the immediate, short-term gains. According to Smits, “After just 25 minutes, your mood improves, you are less stressed, you have more energy — and you’ll be motivated to exercise again tomorrow. A bad mood is no longer a barrier to exercise; it is the very reason to exercise.”

Physical Benefits

The physical benefits of playing sports are numerous. Exercise in general controls weight by burning calories, improves the functioning of the cardiovascular system, placing a lower strain on the heart, and increases an athlete’s energy level while improving the quality of sleep. It also provides longer-term benefits, such as the reduced risk of diseases like cardiovascular disease and diabetes, reduces the level of body fat, improves the cholesterol makeup of the athlete’s bloodstream and makes the bones and muscles stronger. The athlete also develops the physical skills needed to compete in a given sport, such as hitting a baseball or kicking a soccer ball.

Negative Effects

Despite all the benefits that can be gained, there are some drawbacks to playing sports. The competitive nature that drives most athletes, especially elite athletes, often leaves them prone to injury through overuse or overtraining, or by ignoring injury to play through the pain in order to help their team. Coaches can facilitate this behavior by ignoring the issue or by pushing an athlete to continue even when she is hurt. This attitude can be even more dangerous in a collision sport such as football or ice hockey, where concussions are a regular occurrence. An athlete who sustains a concussion — which is the brain being bounced off the sharp ridges of the skull — must fully recover from the concussion before practicing or playing again, or he puts himself at risk of sustaining an even worse concussion. Repeated head trauma causes chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative brain disorder that can cause memory loss, confusion, poor judgment, aggression, depression and dementia. Boxers, football players and hockey players often suffer from the effects of CTE years after they retire.

Benefits of Team Sports

While athletes who play individual sports receive many of the same physical and mental benefits that athletes in team sports receive, there are additional benefits to participating in team sports. It provides you with a way to meet new people and expand your social network. Team sports provide you with a sense of camaraderie with your teammates, as you work together to achieve victory. Playing a team sport can be especially beneficial for children. It can help teach them to set aside their personal desires in order to help the team. They can also learn that hard work and perseverance can help them achieve their goals and dreams — a valuable lesson that they can carry throughout life.

The Advantages of Going to the Gym Every Day

The Advantages of Going to the Gym Every Day

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all adults get at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise five days a week. Going to the gym every day is one way to accomplish this goal. Regular exercise carries many physical and mental health benefits. Do not begin any new exercise program without talking to your doctor first, especially if you have any health conditions or have been sedentary to this point.

Weight Control

Going to the gym every day will help you control your weight. Expending 500 calories per day, or 3,500 calories per week, will help you to lose 1 lb. per week. If you are overweight or obese, losing even a moderate amount of weight, such as 10 percent of your body weight, may reduce your risk of developing serious conditions. Making changes to your diet may help you to lose even more weight. A reasonable goal is to lose up to 2 lbs. per week if you are overweight.

Heart Health

Exercising daily strengthens your heart and allows it to pump more efficiently with less strain. Exercise also lowers your blood pressure, which measures the force on your artery walls each time your heart beats. It may lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels, allowing blood to flow more smoothly through your arteries. Going to the gym for 30 minutes a day five days per week may lower your risk of developing heart disease or having a stroke, says the CDC, and going for a longer period often can lower your risk even more.

Other Health Benefits

Regular exercise may lower your risk of developing diabetes, metabolic syndrome and some types of cancer, such as colon cancer and breast cancer. Combining aerobic exercise with strength training at the gym helps your muscles, ligaments, joints and tendons remain in good shape, which will make you stronger and more flexible. This is particularly important as you age or face problems such as arthritis.

5 Ways To Get More Chlorophyll In Your Diet

This article will help you learn important green vegetable and wheatgrass juicing information to increase your chlorophyll consumption. Chlorophyll is a “photoreceptor” compound found in all green plants, which helps them convert sunlight into energy. It is more abundant in some green plants than in others.

Chlorophyll has the potential to help decrease the damage to DNA by carcinogenic substances and toxins. This means it holds promise for cancer prevention. Early stage research is currently being conducted on the use of chlorophyll in the prevention of various cancers, including liver, skin, and colon cancers.

It is also believed to potentially improve the response of the immune system. Some people believe that when taken internally it also helps reduce body odors.

Here are five ideas for consuming more chlorophyll:

1. Know your chlorophyll-rich foods.

Foods high in chlorophyll include asparagus, bell peppers, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, green cabbage, collard greens, green beans, green peas, kale, leeks, lettuce (especially those that are dark in color), green olives, parsley, sea vegetables, spinach, Swiss chard, turnip greens, and wheatgrass. Find new ways to incorporate these foods into your diet, whether by juicing, preparing in raw food recipes, or juicing.

2. Consider a chlorophyll supplement.

If you are at risk of cancer or are exposed to many toxins, or you do not consume many chlorophyll-rich vegetables, you might consider taking a chlorophyll supplement. They are available in liquid or pill form from health food stores and online. Some wheatgrass juicing information sites also sell chlorophyll or wheatgrass supplements.

3. Juice wheatgrass.

Wheatgrass is a potent and safe source of chlorophyll. It can be juiced using only a masticating juicer. Wheatgrass is easily grown at home and harvested at your leisure for juicing. Only small amounts of the juice are consumed at a time, and juicing aficionados swear by its power to improve health and vitality. For more wheatgrass juicing information, look for websites or books dedicated to this topic.

5. Incorporate chlorophyll-rich vegetables into your fruit juices.

If you don’t like the taste of pure vegetable juices, try adding small amounts of chlorophyll-rich vegetables to your fresh fruit juices. Spinach and kale are delicious when combined with apple juice (and, optionally, a small amount of ginger). Parsley is easily added to many juices, including melon juice. Cabbage juice can be combined with citrus or apple juices. Leeks contribute a spicy kick to any fruit or vegetable juice.

6. Add raw vegetables to your favorite recipes.

Many raw, chlorophyll-rich vegetables are easily incorporated into delicious recipes. Kale can be transformed into a delightful salad when combined with garbanzo beans, chopped apple, garlic and lime juice. A bed of raw spinach can be topped with a broiled filet of salmon. Raw broccoli can become a salad when combined with warm brown rice, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Raw green vegetables contain not only chlorophyll but other wonderful enzymes and phytochemicals that can help prevent cancer and heart disease, among other conditions.

What Are the Health Benefits of Being Physically Fit?

What Are the Health Benefits of Being Physically Fit?

Cardiovascular Health

People who regularly exercise have a reduced risk of cardiovascular problems such as heart disease and stroke compared to unfit people, according to the CDC. As little as 2.5 hours of moderate physical activity regularly every week confers this advantage, but people who do more exercise can reduce the risk even more. Moderate activity, according to Harvard School of Public Health, is activity that makes you sweat but allows you to talk at the same time. A physically fit and active person also tends to have lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels than a sedentary person.

Metabolic Health

People who are physically fit tend to suffer less from metabolic issues like Type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, notes the CDC. If a person has metabolic syndrome, she has some or all of these problems; high blood sugar, high blood pressure, high triglycerides, excess belly fat and low high-density lipoprotein (“good” cholesterol). The more exercise a person does regularly, the less chance she has of developing these health problems. (Here and elsewhere, these are general results; it’s still possible to develop these problems even if you exercise regularly, which is why regular medical checkups are important.)

Cancer Risk

The Harvard School of Public Health says that fit people potentially have a lower risk of developing certain cancers. These include colon cancer in both men and women and breast cancer in women, and research indicates that endometrial cancer in women and lung cancer in both sexes may possibly also be positively influenced by staying fit.

Bone Strength

Osteoporosis is a condition where bones become more fragile and fractures are more likely. This is associated with aging, but the Harvard School of Public Health says that staying fit helps lower the risk of this happening. Examples of useful activities include brisk walks, dancing and weight training. These are weight-bearing exercises that force the muscle to pull on the bone, thereby influencing the bones to become stronger to handle the stress. Keeping bones strong also helps reduce the risk of fractures.

Mental Health

Keeping physically fit does not just influence the physical body. The Harvard School of Public Health says regular exercise boosts mood and can potentially help reduce depression. People who are fit may also have less trouble sleeping, and if you stay fit as you age, you can also potentially help prevent a decline in cognitive abilities.


The CDC says that keeping fit is one of the most important things you can do to increase your longevity. People who are active for about 7 hours a week, the CDC says, have about 40 percent less chance of dying early than those who are more sedentary. In addition, fit older people are generally less likely to suffer falls or have issues affecting everyday movement and activities than those who are less fit.

Popular At Home Tooth Whitening Methods

There are many popular at home tooth whitening methods that are currently used by people around the world to whiten teeth naturally. These procedures are both cost effective, easy to use and generally safe alternatives to professional teeth whitening systems. Our Natural Teeth Whitening Secrets Guide already suggests the top 3 natural ways to whiten teeth, but there is still a long list of ways to whiten teeth that appeal to many users for various reason. While cost is an important reason for using alternative ways to make teeth white, many users have opted for at home tooth whitening methods that use less harsh chemicals.

Most alternative procedures to whiten teeth require ingredients found in the kitchen or medicine cabinet. Other ingredients can be found at a grocery store or health food store since a few of the ingredients for some at home tooth whitening methods can be a bit unusual. Listed below are several more of the most popular procedures used to whiten teeth at home.

Sea Salt: Sea salt is used quite effectively by itself or in combination with baking soda as one of the more popular at home tooth whitening methods. Table salt does not work as well as sea salt because it is generally finer grained. Contrary to what a user might assume, the rougher grained sea salt is not overly abrasive to teeth nor harmful. Not only is this solution good for whitening teeth, but also for killing bacteria that can compromise gum health. Using this method 2 or 3 times a week can be a good way to both make teeth white as well as maintain gum health.

Bananas: An unlikely fruit to use, the inside of a banana peel rubbed on teeth has shown to buff and whiten teeth with a noticeable difference within a couple of days for some users. It’s one of the easiest at home tooth whitening methods to use and definately has no abrasive risks to the enamel of teeth. First, brush teeth normally then rub the inside of a banana peel across teeth for about 2 minutes. Then gently brush teeth briefly and rinse well. It is suggested that the banana peel leaves a residue of calcium and vitamin D on teeth, which is very helpful.

Activated Charcoal: When most people hear of this method, they are likely to instinctively avoid this procedure. However, it is reported that African children have used this for lack of any other at home tooth whitening methods that can clean and whiten their teeth. Of course, use activated charcoal that is found in whole or health food stores. This type of charcoal is clean and generally non-toxic. Simply rub gently across teeth, brush thoroughly and rinse. Be careful not to ingest. Repeat procedure over a few weeks until the user begins to see an improvement in overall whitening of teeth.

Vinegar: One of the most popular at home tooth whitening methods is, of course, vinegar. The properties found in apple cidar vinegar have long been used for many alternative cures for various ailments. But it is also a great substitute for standard teeth whitening systems. It is also a wonderful antibacterial application to maintain gum health. Mix together a dash of salt, a few drops of vinegar and a teaspoon of baking soda to make a smooth paste. Brush teeth with mixture, then rinse. Not only does this solution help whiten teeth and kill bacteria, it also helps to get rid of calculus deposits that can occur because of plaque. For those who want the full effect of vinegar’s medicinal arsenal applied to their oral maintenance, use a half solution each of vinegar and water as a mouth wash.

Many of these alternative ways to whiten teeth seem very unusual, but many users and some dentists can concur to the benefits of some of these procedures. While most are safe, always use care in implementing any at home tooth whitening methods and consult a professional if there are any questions related to a user’s personal dental issues.
