Powell Dentist

I am extremely happy with finding and going to Powell Dentist.

My ex-dentist is bad, bad in every way imaginable except for her friendliness with the patient which fools you into trusting her with your pearl whites. Not knowing where else to go and most people around me not liking their own dentist I went online and found Powell Dentist (hey, I can’t have that much bad luck right?).

Powell Dentist is amicable, courteous and very professional. They explain everything they do and frequently asks you if you have any questions. They take digital x-rays of areas that needs to be worked on to show it to you and puts it on file (that’s a pretty smart move, I say). They even estimated how long the procedure might last.


On my second appointment they worked on my tooth and made sure I was fine through out the entire process. Gosh, I really felt good psychologically on that chair*… as weird as it sounded. When we finished they showed me the work done and IT LOOKED SO NICE AND FELT SO NICE, compared to my previous dentist. Pardon my lack of proper dental terms but the filling was the correct color of my teeth (yes my previous dentist was that bad) and it looked so natural like nothing ever happened there.


I have other areas to be worked on and I was worried with my insurance thus the Doc took x-rays of it and told me that he’ll send the proposal to the insurance company so they can mail me the estimated bill, in order for me to decide. That’s thoughtful.

The staff are nice. The receptionist is a darling. Oh gosh, I kind of hate myself for not coming here earlier for my dental needs!

I wouldn’t like share to Powell Dentist with you because that means it will make scheduling an appointment harder but heck, I know that having a good dentist that you can go to is one of the necessities in life.

Columbus Chiropractors

Sometimes going to a doctor can make things worse. Ask the person who got a bad diagnosis or died on the operating table. Sometimes taking your car in for service can make things worse if they diagnose the wrong issue.

Point being chiropractic is very safe in general. The folks who feel worse generally feel worse after one adjustment and never go back. Face it, the vertebrae in your spine are being popped or forced back into position through manipulation. Short term, that is gonna cause some inflammation and you likely will be sore from it.  chiropractor

I go to one. I was the biggest skeptic until it was try a Columbus chiropractors or have back surgery about 5 years ago. I figured what the heck do I have to lose. It actually did feel worse for about 2 weeks. then it gradually started to improve.

I have no issues now but I choose to go back about once every week or two just because I feel better in general than when I don’t go.

Some are good, some are bad and keep you coming back forever. My friend have only gone when she was sure that a spinal manipulation would help her. She had a neck problem following a car accident which he was able to help. She had low back problems too which he also was able to help, one was an acute injury that had her one step away from a wheel chair.


She said she’d go again if she needed to, but knock on wood.. She is doing fine outside of the shoulder.

My friend’s wife also went to a chiropractor after she fell down their stairs shortly after having their last child. This was a well respected guy around their area. Her back has never felt better. It helped her a lot. Her chiro said if she feel she need to come back for “tune ups” come on in, but otherwise up to me. She haven’t been back in some time so just because you go for a little while doesn’t necessarily mean you will forever.


Fish Oil Benefits

Because of many newly emergent diseases in the previous years, more and more people become health conscious and are even more willing to spend on medical insurance and health care services. Many are on the look for food supplements that they think can help improve their health. It is easy to succeed in this venture, but finding the perfect supplement that can provide safe, positive results and are relatively cheap and available can be quite a strain for consumers.

One very common and popularly favored food supplement is omega 3 fish oil. Sine 1930s, it has been known to be a vital substance for proper growth and health. However, most of its health benefits were discovered in 1970s and was then popularized in the early 1990s. It has been proven that regular intake of omega 3 fish oil could reduce blood pressure, arthrosclerosis and heart rate. Studies have also been conducted about the supposed effects of the supplement on coronary heart disease although further studies must be made to prove this claim. Omega 3 was first associated with human health with a study about the Inuit or Eskimo people of Greenland. It was found out that even though these people’s diet includes very high fat content (whale, seal and salmon meat) they are very healthy and do not suffer from diseases that are otherwise caused by over consumption of fat. Ever since, continued studies are carried out to find other health benefits from the substance. Some of these additional researches suggest that this food supplement may help enhance or even cure conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, alcoholism, bipolar disease, depression and arthritis.

Experts also advice that we should follow a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, s well as fish fish in omega-3 fatty acids. Your total cholesterol should be kept under 200 milligrams per deciliter of blood. Your low-density lipoprotein or LDL (the so-called ‘bad cholesterol’), should be kept below 100, while high-density lipoprotein or HDL (the ‘good’ cholesterol), should be at least 40. Diet, exercise, and medication can help control cholesterol levels. Indeed, if you follow a plan and take your medication, heart disease does not have to be a death sentence. More importantly, prevention is better than cure. AS early as now, it is recommended to get the supervised exercise, stress management and lifestyle adjustments to help you live even at the prime of your life. Even at the onset of aging, you are rest assured that you have the protecion of the right lifetime partner.

Dealing with Insect Bites

It is usual for a kid to often come home to mom and complain about an itch. Chances are, he was bitten by an insect while playing in the schoolyard. There’s a whole battalion of bugs out there to sting, bite, chomp and clamp your kids tender skin. When going outdoors, let your child wear white or khaki-colored clothing, use insect repellant and avoid putting sweet-scented fragrances on them.

For minor insect bites

Tiny prick marks on skin
Mild to intense itch
Small red bumps on the skin which may be painless or with a burning sensation
First Aid Tips:
If the area is itchy, do not scratch it for the skin may break and get infected. Use finger pads instead of nails to stroke the bitten part.
Wash the infected area thoroughly with soap and cold water.
Apply calamine lotion to soothe the itchy area.
Most insect bites are minor annoyances but some may need medical help. For dangerous insect bites from mosquitoes infected with dengue or malarial parasites, immediate medical attention is advised.

Better Posture Equals Fewer Headache

Subjecting your head and neck muscles to prolonged strain can cause them to stiffen, leading to a tension headache. Maintaning good posture and avoiding repetitive motions can help avoid such problems. The following suggestions may also reduce muscle tension:

  1. Avoid excessive gum-chewing that can tighten jaw muscles.
  2. Avoiding cupping the telephone between your shoulder and ear. If you use the telephone often, you may want to invest in a headset.
  3. Try not to clench your jaw or grind your teeth.
  4. Don’t rest your chin on your chest while reading.
  5. Keep your computer monitor at eye level.

Allergic to Cats Than Dogs?

Allergic reactions are set off by proteins released by animals. These proteins can be from dander or dried skin flecks. Both cats and dogs produce these, but cats have an additional allergenic element. As a cat licks itself, proteins in saliva dry on the fur, and then flake off into the air. Allergy-prone people may be particularly susceptible to these airborne proteins.

Does a cat make you sneeze? Most people aren’t really allergic to cats, just to the allergens that collect in a cat’s fur.

Spending three minutes in a bath tub can remove 79 percent of the allergens on most cats. But the effect doesn’t last. The bath has to be repeated every week to be effective.

Summer Skin Care Tips

Glowing and clear skin requires a healthy diet, lots of water, exercise and plenty of rest. Skin crises on the other hand, are caused by a number of things. First, stress triggers skin breakouts and rashes. Exposure to excessive dirt can cause blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. It is important to wash your face with a mild cleanser at least twice a day. Alcohol and smoking also cause wrinkles, lines, and discoloration so avoid them if you can.

For facial care, avoid using regular soaps as they can leave considerable amounts of residue that aggravate clogging and infection. Rinse thoroughly and refresh your face further after cleansing using a toner to remove any excess cleanser and to help the skin return to a normal ph balance. Exfoliate dead skin cells using a product with alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA), then moisturize (optional if you have oily skin) and finish off with a sunscreen.

Take care of the skin on the neck and chest as well as they are the first to show the telltale signs of aging. Use a facial cleansing cream to hydrate these areas and finish with a facial moisture cream.

Apply a moisturizer for the rest of your body especially the hands, and put on sun block with a high sun protection factor (SPF) when going outdoors or before hitting the beach.

Another great tip to achieve great skin is to load up with fresh tomatoes. The fruit is especially beneficial when cooked as more of the carotenoid lycopene makes it into the skin, where it can limit UV damage to lower skin-cancer risk. Proper care and tomatoes are indeed a great combination to great skin this summer.

How to Stay Young and Great Looking

Youthfulness and beauty seem to go hand in hand together. As you get older, some beauty spoilers start appearing so it is best to take preventive measures early on to preserve your young and glowing look. Here are wonderful tips that work:

  • Get defensive on your skin with a daily SPF. This helps prevent wrinkles, blotches, and protects skin from cancer and other diseases.
  • Avoid foods that have anything with a dark pigment like wine, soy sauce and coffee as these may cause yellowish teeth. You may chop on apples, carrots and cucumbers instead that naturally cleanse the teeth.
  • Drink green tea to boost the skin’s elastic tissue.
  • Do a 20-minute cardiovascular exercise 4 or 5 times a week to beat the bulges.
  • Add saltwater fish in your diet that contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which help regulate skin’s glow and luster.
  • Maintain your healthy hair by using a hot oil treatment weekly and massage a deep conditioner unto your scalp.
