Natural Treatment For Hip Labral Tear

Between knees and hips, it's difficult to say which area is more prone to degenerative changes as we age, but in my experience, it's far easier to protect your hips than your knees.

Knees are relatively simple - they are hinge joints, meaning that they are designed to work in one major plane, and generally, they wear down in predictable fashion. The more you grind them through daily life, the weaker your cartilage and ligaments become. Your knees are not well vascularized compared to other major joints in your body, so there isn't a lot you can do by way of stretching and massage to significantly improve blood flow to the cartilage within and the ligaments that surround and stabilize your knee joints.

Natural Sleep Aid For Babies

Back when our firstborn, Joshua, was about six months old and had trouble getting to sleep without one of us holding him, we resorted to the universal remedy of strapping him into his car seat and going for a long drive. Read more about Natural Sleep Aid For Babies

 

Our Knobby Therapeutic Foam Roller

If you've been following our site for a while now, you likely know how much I value using a foam roller to keep muscles and ligaments healthy and well perfused with blood. In my experience, having a foam roller is almost as good as having your own personal massage therapist. You can use a roller to apply therapeutic massage to just about any muscle group. And if you combine foam rolling with stretching all of your major muscle groups, you can expect to be highly flexible and decrease risk of injuries that come about from "brittle" muscles and ligaments that are congested with waste materials and lacking optimal blood flow.

Home Remedy For A Sore Throat

Contrary to what mainstream media tends to teach, experiencing a cold or the flu periodically can actually be helpful to your health.

By and large, the viruses that cause the common cold and flu infect mainly your weakest cells, which you want to get rid of and have replaced by healthy cells. This makes sense, doesn't it? Cells that are already burdened with excessive waste products and toxins are most likely to allow viruses to infect them. Read more about Home Remedy For A Sore Throat

 

Product Review: Philips Sonicare For Healthy Teeth And Gums

We are blessed with an incredibly kind and highly skilled dentist who recently recommended that we look at using an electric toothbrush. Not the kind where the bristles leisurely swirl around, fuelled by a battery that sits in the handle of the brush. Our dentist strongly encouraged us to use a product made by Philips called the Sonicare FlexCare Plus Rechargeable Electric Toothbrush.

How to Gain Healthy Weight

If you are underweight for your body structure, it's possible that you could experience significant improvement in your health by gaining and maintaining healthy weight.

A healthy body weight often indicates that your major organ systems - including your muscles and bones - are well developed. Of course, being at a healthy weight for your structure doesn't guarantee that your major organ systems are functioning well, but a healthy body weight does decrease the likelihood that you might have or develop osteoporosis or problems with regulating your blood sugar and insulin levels.

More On Protecting Yourself Against UV Rays

In a post on gawking in last week's newsletter, I mentioned some of the measures that I take to protect my skin from burning during the hottest of summer days.

I hope that I didn't contribute to any sun phobias that might be out there. In case it wasn't clear in my post, I am extra careful in guarding my skin because I have many areas of depigmentation which burn very quickly without some form of protection.
