No one likes the thought of bad breath. Nor do we like those with bad breath to get in our faces. It is a sure fire way to kill a romantic situation. So what are the steps we can take to ensure that we are not the ones with this problem?
Of course brushing our teeth, using a good toothpaste is the base of any dental hygiene regime. This can be followed with flossing with dental floss or tape then topped off by rinsing our mouth out with a good mouth wash, e.g. Listerine. There is a further step that once you start you will be sure to continue. If you buy a tongue cleaner you will be amazed at the amount of gunk that you can scrape off your tongue. This is a huge part of the cause of bad breath. The tongue is a breeding ground for bacteria and even fungus! However when you use a tongue scraper, you have an effective way to clean your tongue and freshen your mouth.
There are a variety of different types of tongue cleaners. Some are made of metal while others are made from plastic. It is recognized that those made from metals such as stainless steel and copper provide better results than their plastic counterparts. Partly this is to do with the fact that plastic models can actually be more damaging to your tongue. Surprisingly, metal is softer. Also metal tongue scrapers such as the Dr. Tung's Tongue Cleaner ensure that bacteria cannot build up on the tool itself. This model is possibly the most popular one on the market today. Another good feature about metal tongue scrapers is that they are flexible so therefore can be bent to fit a variety of mouth sizes and shapes.
Picking skin from fingers, lips, face and many other bodily areas as well as biting nails is an obsessive condition which affects many people. Just taking a look around while on public transport or in other public places you may well some people engaged in this form of self mutilation. Granted, this may be an extreme description for this kind of behaviour but it is not healthy and in there will likely be some emotional trigger that is causing people to bite or pick themselves. This in many cases will actually be causing pain but for whatever reason the sufferer will not stop.
The medical term for the condition of picking skin from your body is called dermatillomania. It is a kind of impulse control disorder which means some people are unable to stop themselves from picking at the skin on their hands for example. The urge to pick often comes from feelings of stress, anxiety, worry and so on.
Since I was young I have often picked a layer of skin from the tips of my thumbs. It is something that I do when I begin to feel stressed. Rather than taking action to deal with a particular issue I face. Instead I sometimes try to analyse the situation and at the same time start peeling.
So even though I want to stop picking my skin I find that even though it is sometimes painful it is also kind of soothing.
However instead of saying to myself don't do that. I am instead trying to think about what is causing me to act in this fashion and also looking at ways in which I can channel my energy so that instead of engaging in a behaviour which is detrimental to my own health I can instead focus my energy in a more positive fashion so that I can deal with the challenges I face.
For example when I have a proposal to write for work, instead of putting off starting to plan and write while at the same time biting my thumb, I can instead simply get to work. This will mean I am facing the challenge straight on, actually getting something done and avoiding the time wasted on picking.
There is far more advice available online about the issues faced for people who pick skin than I would have thought. There is a Wikipedia page devoted to the topic. If you are asking yourself "How can I stop biting my nails?" then you will find the tips are very similar.
Shots of wheatgrass juice are claimed to have wonderful health benefits. Are these green grassy drinks a fad or do they help improve our health?
In my personal experience I find that drinking wheatgrass has few noticeable effects. That said, I think it is a worth while addition to the healthy food and drink that I consume. The more alkaline drinks I have, the better. A major part of the reason why I am unable to discern the specific health benefits of wheatgrass is that I don't drink it regularly enough to get the full benefit. I endevour to follow an alkaline diet where the focus is on healthy eating and moving away from acid diet foods and embracing alkaline pH balance.
Wheatgrass contains an abundance of nutrients. Although from the information available online it appears similar in its nutritional content to other leafy green vegetables like spinach. I wonder what the reason is that we can by shots of wheatgrass but not of spinach? Perhaps it's the taste, wheatgrass might not taste great, but spinach juice tastes bad! It may also have something to do with the speed at which wheatgrass can be grown versus the the time it takes to grow spinach.
Sceptics of the wheatgrass drinking craze point out that on the whole the vitamins and minerals found in wheatgrass are no higher than other green vegetables. This is a fair point. But drinking green vegetable juice is good for our health. Just because wheatgrass may be no better for us is no reason not to drink it.
Using all the options at our disposal to remain as healthy as possible is the course that I am taking. I don't grow my own wheatgrass nor do I have a wheatgrass juicer. However when I come across a juice bar selling it, I often have a quick shot of the green juice. The more fruit and vegetables I eat, the better I feel. On top of this, the few wheatgrass drinks that I do consume will have a positive effect on the pH balance of my body.
As part of my effort to make more of my meals for frugal living, rather than eating out I decided to buy a juicer. Not that I just have a fresh fruit and vegetable drink as a meal though. It wasn't cheap at over 30,000 yen but I feel happy with my purchase of a Magimix Le Duo juicer.
At the moment I am primarily juicing in the morning as I now start the day with an alkaline acid diet breakfast which I have always eaten at home anyway. So maybe buying a juicer was not a saving money gesture after all! That said, since I bought my fruit and vegetable juicer, I have saved money by not buying packaged fruit juices from the supermarket.
I have written a more detailed Magimix Le Duo review on my acid diet blog. In my review I discuss the health benefits from increasing fruit and vegetable consumption as well as the operation and use of the Magimix le duo fruit and vegetable juicer itself.
What I love about having a juicer is that I am definitely getting more fruit and vegetable goodness each day which is having a noticeable effect on how I feel. Buying fresh fruit and vegetables obviously costs money. Now though I am making savings by not buying "snack" type food and I am also limiting alcohol consumption which saves money too.
Using my Magimix juicer every morning to prepare my alkaline acid diet breakfast food is very quick. It helps me save money by not visiting buying acid foods on the way to work. So on one hand, it was a fairly substantial outlay to buy my Magimix Le Duo. But on the other, it is perhaps helping with my financial development as I now eat a healthy, reasonably priced breakfast.
