Hello again,

Another year is closing fast and it seems as though the older I get, the faster these years go by.  On the other hand, the older I get, the more I seem to learn and pay attention to.

One thing I do know is that I wish I had paid more attention to or worked harder in seeking out common sense and 'wisdom' when it would have done more good for me to act on as a younger man.  Nonetheless, if I don't take heed now, it will never do me any good, right?

Along this line, so many people tell me that they wished they had come across the OraMedia site's  information twenty or thirty years ago, for all of the expensive dental work they've had or the pain and suffering from a disease they didn't know how to prevent or the teeth long lost to neglect or decay.

For you younger readers - most of you WILL reach fifty or sixty or seventy years, and what you do today to secure your overall health and well-being down the road WILL pay off in spades.  If you take nothing else to heart, take this:  barring divine intervention, NO ONE will EVER take care of you like YOU.  You can't buy that from a doctor, accountant or a politician, so you might want to burn that into your memory banks right now.

Now, if you are older, like me - and if you feel this way also, don't hide this information from someone who might benefit from it thirty or forty years from now (or right now, in fact).

As bitter as it might have been, didn't we all learn, "It's nice to share..."

On with it...

Nara Cleansing Powder for Fresher Teeth & Gums What do you want from your dentifrice?
A question you should answer before buying another toothpaste!

Nara Cleansing Powder is a simple formula of baking soda, Himalayan salt, Xylitol and natural flavoring.  That's it.

Clean teeth are absolutely necessary for keeping them from losing - and RECOVERING the calcium and phosphorus ions needed for building and maintaining strong, healthy enamel.

In addition to stronger enamel, wouldn't you want something that really does the job in taking care of the germs that cause tooth decay and gum diseases?  Believe it or not, baking soda and salt are two of the most powerful substances capable of controlling those pathogens - along with thorough and regular brushing, of course.  And for cleanliness and germ control, it is far superior than 'yummy' and overpriced pastes, soaps, etc.  See for yourself.

Bad Breath?  What could be better at removing odors than baking soda?

Abrasive?  Nope.  Contrary to common belief, baking soda has some of the lowest abrasive qualities of all pastes or powders!

Available flavors...
  Peppermint  Spearmint  Cinnamon  Clove 
  Tangerine  Lemon - Lime or Unflavored 

No Fluorides  -  No SLS
(You won't have to call 'Poison Control'
if accidentally swallowed...)

Simple, Clean, Very Effective.
That's it.

That's Nara Cleansing Powder.


Oral Health - The Basics, Part I
by Tom Cornwell

Basics of Good Oral HealthIn this article, I am hoping to drive home the essentials concerning preventing decay of the teeth and gums and the promotion of  certain actions which I feel to be the most beneficial to keeping the teeth and gums free from disease.  Some of this is simply a digest of information readily available on my OraMedia Site for Dental Self-Sufficiency, but some is also fairly new.

In PART ONE, let's start with the concept of maintaining good oral health overall...

Scientists Discover Influenza's Achilles Heel: Antioxidants

ScienceDaily (Oct. 30, 2009) - As the nation copes with a shortage of vaccines for H1N1 influenza, a team of Alabama researchers have raised hopes that they have found an Achilles' heel for all strains of the flu -- antioxidants.

In an article appearing in the November 2009 print issue of the FASEB Journal, they show that antioxidants -- the same substances found in plant-based foods -- might hold the key in preventing the flu virus from wreaking havoc on our lungs.

Influenza Viruses"The recent outbreak of H1N1 influenza and the rapid spread of this strain across the world highlights the need to better understand how this virus damages the lungs and to find new treatments," said Sadis Matalon, co-author of the study. "Additionally, our research shows that antioxidants may prove beneficial in the treatment of flu."

Matalon and colleagues showed that the flu virus damages our lungs through its "M2 protein," which attacks the cells that line the inner surfaces of our lungs (epithelial cells). Specifically, the M2 protein disrupts lung epithelial cells' ability to remove liquid from inside of our lungs, setting the stage for pneumonia and other lung problems. The researchers made this discovery by conducting three sets of experiments using the M2 protein and the lung protein they damage.

First, frog eggs were injected with the lung protein alone to measure its function. Second, researchers injected frog eggs with both the M2 protein and the lung protein and found that the function of the lung protein was significantly decreased. Using molecular biology techniques, scientists isolated the segment of the M2 protein responsible for the damage to the lung protein. Then they demonstrated that without this segment, the protein was unable to cause damage. Third, the full M2 protein (with the "offending" segment intact) and the lung protein were then re-injected into the frog eggs along with drugs known to remove oxidants. This too prevented the M2 protein from causing damage to the lung protein. These experiments were repeated using cells from human lungs with exactly the same results.

"Although vaccines will remain the first line of intervention against the flu for a long time to come, this study opens the door for entirely new treatments geared toward stopping the virus after you're sick," said Gerald Weissmann, M.D., Editor-in-Chief of the FASEB Journal, "and as Thanksgiving approaches, this discovery is another reason to drink red wine to your health."
