Getting Comfortable Shoes so you can walk more and have more energy


I am getting these for my friend Rob who helps me move a lot of heavy furniture. These shoes have rave reviews, so we'll see how he likes them. He has very wide feet and needs special shoes. According to the reviews, these are really good for people with wide feet.

Yes, you really should filter the water that comes out of your shower head!


My hair always feels way softer when I use a chlorine filter. I haven't used one for years, but am finally ordering this one. Will be posting more about why chlorine filtration is important, soon.

Drinking MORE water

I am finally going to order some glass straws. I have found that I tend to drink a lot more, when I am using a straw. The only problem is that I don't fully trust drinking from metal or plastic straws, because I know they can leach toxic chemicals. Yes, really.

I am going to order these straws today, and will be adding more pictures of other bottles and cups and travel mugs, etc., that have motivated me to drink more water in the past. I just wish they would make glass versions of all of them, because that is the one type of material that I trust more than any other.

I also like my water to be cold, so if I don't have enough ice, I tend not to drink it. The ice cube trays I got from the dollar store are awful, they crack easily and I've wondered if I am ingesting plastic the last few months, because they're so badly cracked. Finally decided to invest in some higher quality ice trays. The reviews for these are impressive, so this is what I am getting.  Almost 13,000 (12,999 reviews) and a five star average, so I figure they must be halfway decent.

Cleaning with Eco-Friendly Disinfectants that won't harm you OR your pets

 Hypochlorous acid is THE... BEST... DISINFECTANT......... PERIOD.

For the last few years, this is pretty much the only disinfectant I use.

Why do I love this stuff so much? Let me count the ways....

Your body makes it, so it is biocompatible with you and not harmful to pets. 

I can make it super cheap from my machine

It disinfects extremely quickly

It doesn't leave a toxic residue on a surface

It saves me time.  I can spray just about anything and leave it, whereas if I used a traditional disinfectant, I'd have to take time to wipe it all up, to make sure my cats don't ingest it somehow. 

It's the safer and healthier option

This is what I use to spray it. These bottles are awesome. I already have two, but am ordering more.

Can You Heal Your Own Teeth?

 I have been trying to heal my own teeth for a few years. Recently I felt a lot of pain in a cracked / chipped tooth in which half the filling portion fell out. I have been determined to heal it myself, and am making this post to explain why I think it's possible. I will be posting pictures of my own progress, soon.

I am ordering two products that I will be posting further down the page.  Tideglusib, plus an enzyme that eats up dental decay.

BRIX 3000

There are a few places that offer Tideglusib for sale, and I am going with this one:

I realize I am taking a chance. I have no idea if this company is legit or not, but I do know that my late husband used to order stuff that worked (from a pharmacy in India) so I think it's worth taking a chance. I am going to just try out the smaller tube for now.  It does help me to see that they are BBB accredited. They didn't seem to have any reviews, but at least there weren't any BAD ones that I could find. 

BBB accredited since 4/27/2011. Laboratory Research in Houston, TX. See BBB rating, reviews, complaints, request a quote & more.

In vitro

Tideglusib irreversibly inhibits GSK-3, reduces tau phosphorylation, and prevents apoptotic death in human neuroblastoma cells and murineprimary neurons. [1] Tideglusib (2.5 μM) inhibits glutamate-induced glial activation as evidenced by decreased TNF-α and COX-2 expression in rat primary astrocyte or microglial cultures. Tideglusib (2.5 μM) also exerts a potent neuroprotective effect on cortical neurons from glutamate-induced excitotoxicity as evidenced by significant reduction in the number of Annexin-V-positive cells in rat primary astrocyte or microglial cultures. [2]

I got the idea to take Alpha Lipoic acid to try to heal my tooth since I had learned how this stuff dramatically helps to repair a person's liver. It literally regenerates blood vessels. So I googled it to see if anyone else had used it, and this article popped up. Since I started taking it, it really helped!

Alpha-Lipoic Acid - The Poor Man's Root Canal!
Alpha-lipoic acid is a naturally occurring vitamin-like nutrient produced in small quantities within the body for catalyzing reactions and recycling beneficial materials such as vitamin C and E. It is key involving the nervous, cardiovascular, immune, and detoxification systems of the body. Alpha-lipoic acid can pass the blood/brain barrier and penetrate tissues with somewhat ease, allowing it to kill infection extremely effectively in nearly all parts of the body - in this case the head, mouth and teeth. Pain experienced during varying stages of tooth decay is nearly always a sign of infection, even if only mild and will cause some very severe side effects if not handled rather quickly.
A highly effective solution, particularly for those who cannot afford the ridiculous dental costs in the United States, is to keep infection away in the meantime using alpha-lipoic acid. Known as the "poor man's root canal" for it's effectiveness in removing infection and pain in dental decay situations, it should be considered one of the first choices in dealing with dental problems such as pain and infection alongside the standard practices of cleanliness via brushing and using a mouthwash containing 3% hydrogen peroxide - preferably homemade.
A typical effective dosage of alpha-lipoic for acute pain and infection is approx. 50mg every 3-4 hours for an average sized adult. However some use 100mg of alpha-lipoic every 4-6 hours.
And while most bottles of alpha-lipoic acid come with their own ingestion instructions and amounts, the practice is to typically take a higher dose (as high as 300mg) only once or twice in a 24 hour period. This is not effective in the case of acute dental infection or pain, since a regular supply is more effective against infection. Investing in a pill cutter or crusher and splitting or cutting the pills into proper increments for taking periodically is an excellent idea.
If only mild soreness is experienced or one is just keeping maintenance over the body here or there, a larger dose of 150mg 1-3 times daily is a more proper amount.
Alpha-lipoic acid can be taken when one is experiencing pain or discomfort from infection. It should only take approximately 1-2 days to rid the body of infection and therefore most or even all pain. Some take alpha-lipoic acid as a dietary supplement for it's benefits and we recommend the ingestion of alpha-lipoic acid every once in a while as a form of body cleanse.

ffects of the Alpha‐Lipoic Acid therapy on experimentally induced apical periodontitis: A biochemical, histopathological and micro‐CT analysis



Aim To investigate the possible therapeutic effects of alpha‐lipoic acid (ALA) in a model of chronic apical periodontitis in rats by analysing biochemical, histopathological and micro‐CT parameters. Methodology The study was approved by the Animal Ethics Committee of the Near East University. Thirty‐two Wistar rats were divided into four groups of eight rats each: Control Group; ALA Group; AP Group; AP + ALA Group. In the AP and AP + ALA groups, the pulp chambers of the mandibular first molars were surgically exposed and were left open to the oral environment for 4‐weeks to allow the establishment of periapical lesions. The rats in the Control and AP groups were treated intraperitoneally with saline solution (with a daily dose of 100 mg kg⁻¹, for 28 days after periapical lesion induction). The rats in the ALA and AP + ALA groups were treated intraperitoneally with ALA (with a daily dose of 100 mg kg⁻¹, for 28 days after periapical lesion induction). After decapitation, the trunk blood was collected for the assessment of biochemical parameters. The mandibles were surgically removed and dissected for histopathologic analysis and further scanned with micro‐CT. Groups of data were compared with a two‐way analysis of variance (two‐way anova) followed by Sidak's multiple comparison tests. Values of P < 0.05 were regarded as significant. Results TNF‐α, IL‐1β, MMP‐1, MMP‐2 levels were significantly lower in AP + ALA group compared with AP group (P < 0.05). There was a significant difference between the AP and AP + ALA groups according to assessment of the inflammatory scores (P < 0.05). The periapical inflammatory infiltrates were significantly more severe (P < 0.05) in the AP group. The AP + ALA group exhibited lower values both in terms of surface area and volume of resorption cavities than the AP group and this difference was significant (P < 0.05). Conclusion alpha‐lipoic acid treatment provided therapeutic effects on the inhibition of periapical bone loss.
