Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

__A Healthy Mouth Is More Than a Beautiful Smile

Next conversation [right arrow]

Your mouth is the gateway to your health.
Regular check-ups with your dentist can reveal more than just cavities. Studies show a link between common oral health problems and chronic conditions such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and elevated risk for stroke.
Follow these tips to keep you smiling from the inside out:
·         Brush at least twice daily.
·         Floss daily to eliminate plaque and maintain healthy gums.
·         Eat healthfully. Be mindful of what foods you eat and how often you eat them.
