September 01, 2011

(September 2011 Issue #002 -

A fr*ee monthly newsletter to inspire you to be the healthiest, most vital and vibrant version of You!

A warm welcome to the Making-Healthy-Choices e-zine... Taking the time to focus on your health is the most important thing you can do - you are worth it!

In this month's e-Zine;

"We are not inheriting land from our ancestors, we are borrowing it from our grandchildren" - old Indian proverb

Let's Get Trashy

How much waste do you produce? How much of your garbage do you recycle?

Did you know that styrofoam doesn't ever break down? That means that all styrofoam just ends up sitting in a landfill adding to the unhealth of our planet (and therefore us).

It amazes me how many food places STILL use styrofoam containers!! Just crazy when there are better options available!

There is no need to produce as much garbage as most of us do, this isn't just a global problem - it is a situation that we can all make changes to on an individual level. Every little change helps;

  • use your own containers for take-away food
  • buy items second hand
  • find a recycling program in your area and use it
  • use your own reusable cloth bags for shopping

There are many more creative ideas for reducing the amount of garbage we produce on this page.
Take a look - there may be some things here that you had never even thought of before.

Share some ideas of your own in the comments section at the bottom of the page.

Extra Strength Flossing

Flossing our teeth is an important part of our dental health.
Did you know that each tooth in your mouth corresponds to a certain part of your body? Healthy teeth and gums encourages a healthy body and vice versa - Holistic Health at its finest! (ie. Holistic Health involves the ENTIRE body and everything is connected)

Here is a simple tip to get even more benefits when flossing:

Before you start flossing, rub one drop of peppermint essential oil over the length of the piece of floss you are using.

Peppermint Essential Oil

A good quality peppermint essential oil has properties that are anti-microbial, anti-viral and antibiotic. So, by using just a drop of essential oil on your floss you are getting the advantage of these properties on your gums, in between your teeth, where buildup and problems often happen.

Be sure to use a good quality (therapeutic grade) peppermint essential oil.

Here is my recommended place to buy essential oils.

Your mouth will be left with a minty fresh feeling that will help to uplift your entire spirit. How's that for a boost?

Yes, there is mint flavored dental floss that you can buy BUT do you know what exactly they are using to create that minted flavor?

By using your own high grade essential oil you will be sure to be getting all the healthy properties of peppermint oil without any of the unhealthy chemical additives that could be in those mint flavored flosses from the store.

Caution: Essential oils are very concentrated so one drop is plenty. Be careful to not touch your eyes after using the oil as this will cause a stinging sensation in your eyes.
