Dental Care Lacking in Americans, Especially Children

Despite many children gaining coverage through their parents’ health plans or Children’s Health Insurance Program and Medicaid, the American Dental Association found that 10 million 2- to 18-year-olds are still left without dental coverage. Only 63,448 children across 36 states received stand-alone dental insurance through the new online marketplaces, federal officials said. According to Ameriplan Blog

We have been making considerable progress in our efforts to ensure that low-income children have access to oral health care.  From 2007 to 2011, almost half of all states (24) achieved at least a ten percentage point increase in the proportion of children enrolled in Medicaid and CHIP that received a preventive dental service during the reporting year...

Lack is Temporary

I apologize for not getting this post out sooner.  My computer was down and dysfunctional for a couple of days.  Fixed now.  Be careful, there is a virus going around the internet.  You are asked to update software and it damages your system.  I was updating Zone Alarm an antivirus, firewall software and I lost connectivity to the internet and had a beast of a time getting it back. My best friend had a similar situation with updates to Microsoft Office.  She updated and went back, Excel was completely gone! So, all of you BE ON THE ALERT!

Here are words of inspiration for what was supposed to be posted this past Tuesday:

I know a young lady who got off to a rough start in life. She came from a very dysfunctional family. All she had ever seen was poverty, addiction and depression...

For Your HEART ❤

imageHsOatmeal

Start your day with a steaming bowl of oats, which are full of omega-3 fatty acids, folate, and potassium. This fiber-rich superfood can lower levels of LDL (or bad) cholesterol and help keep arteries clear.

Opt for coarse or steel-cut oats over instant varieties—which contain more fiber—and top your bowl off with a banana for another 4 grams of fiber.

Salmon

Super-rich in omega-3 fatty acids, salmon can effectively reduce blood pressure and keep clotting at bay. Aim for two servings per week, which may reduce your risk of dying of a heart attack by up to one-third.

“Salmon contains the carotenoid astaxanthin, which is a very powerful antioxidant,” says cardiologist  Stephen T. Sinatra, MD, the author of Lower Your Blood Pressure In Eight Weeks...

Discount Health Coverage vs. Health Insurance

Which is better? Discount health coverage. Here’s why.  First off discount health/dental coverage is a lot cheaper per month AND there are no deductibles! No limits!  And, one is not possibly paying $700 a month and possibly not needing to go to the doctor.  What are we getting for that $700 month?  In this economy where people are losing their jobs and people are really hurting financially but yet coverage is still necessary, especially families with children, discount healthcare is very affordable.  One example is a woman had a root canal that normally costs $1400 now only costs her $400!  Dental is especially lacking in the US.  About 70% do NOT have dental coverage.  Discount dental coverage can also be used as a supplement to insurance, for those costs not picked up by insuran...

Ahhhh That feels good

Massage therapy is well known, not only in spas, but also in the workplace and in gyms.  The benefits of massage therapy are the reduction of stress, anxiety, depression, and also for the benefit of well being.  This is where one totally relaxes and all the pressures and aches are relieved by the massage therapist.  Particular massages that are popular are the Chinese massage and the Swedish massage.  In general, therapists press, rub, and otherwise manipulate the muscles and other soft tissues of the body. They most often use their hands and fingers, but may use their forearms, elbows, or feet.  Total bliss!

In Swedish massage, the therapist uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration, and tapping...

Spirituality Leads to Better Health

According to a study conducted by a team of researchers at the University of Missouri, spirituality improves the health of most people, both of seemingly healthy individuals and those with conditions and illnesses.
The team highlight that healthcare providers could tailor treatments and rehabilitation programs to accommodate an individual’s spiritual inclinations.

Dan Cohen, assistant teaching professor of religious studies at MU, explained:
“In many ways, the results of our study support the idea that spirituality functions as a personality trait. With increased spirituality people reduce their sense of self and feel a greater sense of oneness and connectedness with the rest of the universe...
