International Campaign for Dental Health

Living in North America, we take for granted the incredible health care services we have at our disposition. Particularly, if you’re from Canada and have access to free health care and affordable dental care. But many people across the globe have no access to this type of medical service nor are they able to get the supplies needed to care for their own dental health.

This is why it is so important to raise money and awareness to help these countries and provide the information necessary for people to be able to take care of their oral hygiene to avoid losing teeth, having pain in their mouths and gums, and worse, developing a bacterial infection that could spread throughout their body.

We have decided to start a campaign for women across the globe and provide small boxes full of supplies that work as a great starter kit for people to take care of their oral hygiene. We provide silicone tooth brushes that will last for years and are easy to clean, and a small paste that can be mixed with small quantities of water to make a long-lasting toothpaste to clean and brush teeth. It is crucial that these supplies can last for years because otherwise, these women and their families will not be able to maintain their new found healthy routines.

Equally so, it’s important that the education on how exactly to brush their teeth is provided. Gerald Cunningham, has been one of the key donors to this mental health campaign and suggests that with the tools and information provided, a person can change the course of their health history by introducing a regular brushing routine. Cunningham has put a donation box in his dental office and pledged to match whatever his patients donate over the next year to the World Oral Health foundation to help women and children around the globe have better oral hygiene which can increase their quality of life and prevent them from contracting bacterial infections or losing their teeth.

Together, we are able to make a difference in the lives of many if we combine our resources, knowledge and education so that others who are not as fortunate as us will be able to have the same quality of life and same opportunities. Together, we can make a difference.

Dancing Off the Pounds with Country Music


What do you think of when you hear the word exercise? Most people picture sweating in an uncomfortable room full of people in a sweaty, hot, jam packed gym. Or they picture running down the street where people are looking at them, judging their bodies, and judging how fast they are running through the streets but what about when you think about children should mark as a schoolteacher, I constantly see children returning back from recess drenched in sweat red rosy cheeks. For them, exercise is merely play

Children view exercise as fun. They don’t even know what exercise really means. But they do know that running around, chasing their friends, skipping rope, or playing basketball and other games is just simply fun. Children know something that I don’t have long forgotten. Exercise can actually just be a form of play and entertainment. A lot of adult hate exercise in the idea of moving their bodies because they don’t want to look sweaty or disgusting in front of other people. What if you were able to have fun while exercising just the way that children do? That is the concept of the new exercise and dance program called country heat by autumn.

Autumn is a popular fitness and health expert that has been creating popular DVD and exercise programs with beach body in order to help people lose weight in a fun and entertaining way. Not everyone is a fan of country music, but those who are absolutely love it. Autumn is one of those people who love country music and has designed this Country Heat dance workout program for adults to enjoy dancing and moving their hips country music in order to lose weight and also have fun at the same time. This program is not only designed for advanced exercisers but is actually targeted towards people who want to lose weight and also have a good time. You don’t need any weights or other exercise equipment. All you need is a good attitude, some great workout shoes, and a smile on your face.

Exercise program contains six or seven workout videos that you can follow in order to help increase your heart rate and burn calories while doing a variety of different line dancing and country swing style music dance moves. You will also follow a nutrition plan that will use different containers that will help you understand how much food you should be eating of each food group.  Commit to only three weeks and you will be amazed at how great you will feel and look after following this exercise program!

Portion Control Made Easy for Weight Loss

One of the most difficult parts about losing weight is determining how many calories to eat and more so, sticking to the amount that is listed.  You might be able to track calories with your mobile phone or some application on your tablet for a few weeks, but sticking to that and committing to writing down and calculating every ounce of food that goes into your body is exhausting, time consuming and boring.

There needs to be another way to monitor your food intake that is simple and easy to use. The exercise program that has swept the nation over the last few years is called the 21 day fix. What is crucial about this program is that it uses portion control containers that are color coded to teach you about how many calories you should be eating and how big or small of portions you should have depending on which food group.  On this portion control containers guide for the 21 day fix program, you can learn how many servings of vegetables, fruits, carbs, protein and fats you should be getting each day and what exactly a portion of rice should look like.  I will tell you though, that when I saw the yellow container and how small it was, I was shocked. I think I would normally eat a plate of spaghetti about 5 times that size!  But that explains my excess fat.  We eat massive portions of food and even huge portions of healthy food, not realizing that our bodies actually require much less food to function and to have enough energy!

After using the 21 day fix containers that came in my program, I began to realize what exactly constitutes one portion of carbs or proteins and then was able to make more sensible choices on a day to day basis.  I also started tracking my water intake and began drinking more water.  That also helped accelerate my weight loss.

If you combine healthy eating and eating smaller portion sizes with regular exercise and plenty of fluids, you’ll quickly begin to see the results of your effort. Weight loss comes easily to those who work for it and are consistent with their diet and exercise.

You might also like to get some 21 day fix worksheets to help you track your progress and make sure you are following the correct workout schedule so that you don’t miss a workout.  It’s very important to be consistent in order to see the best results possible during your diet and workout routine plans.

So in following these steps, you should be on the right track to weight loss and success..

Let’s be real for a minute. How many people make New Years’ Resolutions that are quickly forgotten after February passes.  We start off the month with goals galore – insisting we’ll be skinny and toned, with a hot beach body come July.  But near the end of May, the sun comes out and all those people who have been working hard and lifting weights proudly strut around in their shorts and mini-skirts and the rest of us are swallowing the last bit of our fast food meal thinking “Uh oh, spring is nearly over. Summer has come and I am not ready”!

That’s normal, but it’s not okay because if you don’t start now, you won’t have that body you’ve been dreaming about since last summer.  The time to start is now and it only takes three weeks to get started. But we need a solution, a long-term solution that can provide results before the summer. Luckily, there’s a new program that is designed exclusively to provide you results in 21 days.  Let’s hear it!

The Extreme Workout Program that is Making Waves

Maybe you’ve heard of the 21 day fix program by Autumn Cabrese, popular for the past two years that has made a splash in the weight loss and fitness industry.  Well, the sequel program called the 21 day fix extreme is even better than the original. The workouts are still short and sweet but they are chalk full of hardcore power moves using weights both heavy and light and also using your own body weight to give you a maximum calorie burn.  One of the most prominent 21 day fix extreme review is from blogger Jeanie who has lost 37 pounds since January doing several rounds of the program. Her friend has done the original program but Jeanie advanced to the extreme version and said the following:

“I was looking for a weight loss solution that wouldn’t take hours and hours out of my day – going to the gym, driving there, changing there, finding a free machine, getting home and so forth. That’s just not a possibility for someone with three kids at home, chores to do and dinner to make. The 21 day fix extreme program allowed me to exercise in under 30 minutes a day, and getting more of a workout than I was able to manage in an hour at the gym.  The workouts are intense, short, and effective.  Over 30 pounds later, I look better and feel incredible.

If you can commit to the workouts, all you need to do is focus on following the nutritional guide of the program where you’ll use color coded containers to make sure you’re eating the healthiest foods possible and getting in all your nutrients.  The 21 day fix extreme program covers it all, diet, exercise, nutrition and even strength training. There’s no guess work, no huge time commitment.  All you need is the persistence and patience to dedicate a full three weeks and see how your body will begin to change dramatically. Both pounds and inches will fall off your body, but you need to make the first step and commit to it.

A quarter of middle-aged women suffer from depression or anxiety. Depression is associated with low levels of serotonin, the so-called hormone of happiness. A lack of serotonin is often caused by lack of an amino acid called tryptophan which our body can not produce. The best way to attain certain stocks of serotonin is to eat foods rich in tryptophan: turkey, cheese, bananas and plums. Scientists advise you to eat between four and 11 bananas a week.

Do not drink a drop of alcohol

One of the key results of the study “Million Women” at the University of Oxford is that even one glass of wine a day increases the risk of breast cancer by 9.5 to 10.6 percent. Scientists estimate that about 5,000 cases of breast cancer attributed to the effects of alcohol.
