Stay warm this winter with gifts from Heat Holders

As someone who suffers from the deep itchy hives of cold urticaria, warm clothing is a life saver! With this condition, any cold that hits my exposed skin begins to swell and itch. It becomes worse as I thaw out when warming up, so staying as warm as possible at all times is how to handle it, as well as having an antihistamine on hand. Heat Holders allows me to sit in a cold office or wrap in in a cold room with comfort.

The best teeth whitening strips for sensitive teeth

Throughout my adulthood, I have had times where I seen to deal with sensitive teeth and gums. It comes and goes, but when my teeth are feeling sensitive then I want products that won’t cause me discomfort. Too hard of toothbrushes or whitening products tend to bring discomfort on sensitive teeth. This is wy I am so happy I discovered Lumineux products. I was asked to sample the brand and I am very pleased so far.

The whitening strips have brought me no discomfort at all. I looked at the ingredients before I used them and was confident they should work best. Lumineaux uses Dead Sea salt, coconut oil and lemon peel oil to whiten teeth without the sensitivity. They also have a much better taste than other strip brands I have used in the past, so that is a bonus.

I am also using their whitening toothpaste and rinse within my routine and they both have a pleasant taste and seem to work great. What stands out the most about Lumineux is how great they work with my sensitive teeth. Order your teeth whitening strips and other products from the Lumineux line on Amazon.

Holistic Headache Management – Combining Chiropractic Care and Lifestyle Changes

Headaches are a common health problem ranging from a dull, throbbing pain to a severe ache. Migraine headaches are incredibly debilitating and can cause sensitivity to sound or light, nausea, and other symptoms.

Stress management

The occasional headache isn’t a significant concern, but frequent or prolonged throbbing pain can affect your work and home life. A holistic headache management approach combines several lifestyle changes with chiropractic care to reduce pain and prevent future episodes. Exercise releases chemicals that block pain signals from reaching the brain, and getting enough sleep is also essential. Incorporating stress management techniques such as meditation, mindfulness, and yoga can help to ease tension. Dietary counseling can also be helpful. Foods and additives trigger many headaches, and we can help you eliminate these triggers from your diet. Underlying physical problems, such as tight muscles or misalignments in the spine, cause cervicogenic headaches. We can address these issues using deep neck flexion exercises, joint mobilization, and spinal manipulation. In a recent study, this combination of approaches was more effective than medication alone.


A regular exercise regimen can help alleviate headaches by releasing chemicals in the body that block pain signals. Try activities such as swimming, walking, or cycling. Staying hydrated throughout the day is essential by drinking water or herbal tea. A remarkable population study was recently completed that included 92,566 participants who answered questions about lifestyle and exercise. However, the questionnaire did not ask about headaches; only limited information was obtained from this cross-sectional data. A cervicogenic (neck-based) headache may be treated with spinal adjustments and other chiropractic techniques. We can also address underlying cervical spine issues, which may be contributing to the head pain. Combined with healthy lifestyle habits, regular chiropractic care can provide safe, drug-free relief for migraines and other chronic pain conditions. Make an appointment if you are experiencing migraines that interfere with your daily life and at-home treatments don’t offer relief. We can treat the underlying cause of your symptoms and help you get back to your routine.


Headaches can be debilitating, often resulting in missed work days and a lower quality of life. While over-the-counter medications may offer temporary relief, these treatments do not address the root cause of the pain. Instead, consider a holistic approach that includes chiropractic techniques and lifestyle changes. For example, eating a healthy diet and eliminating foods that can trigger headaches, like processed sugary foods, caffeine, aged cheeses, and nitrate-rich processed meats, can significantly reduce the frequency of migraines for many people. Additionally, getting a good night’s sleep and managing stress can contribute to fewer migraine episodes. Lastly, incorporating relaxation exercises like deep breathing and meditation can help improve overall well-being and decrease the intensity of both headaches and migraines. While these strategies may take some time to impact headache symptoms fully, they are effective and safe. Moreover, they can help you feel better and enjoy a higher quality of life.

Chiropractic care

Chiropractors are trained to diagnose and treat problems of the bones, joints, and muscles (the musculoskeletal system). They do not use drugs or surgery. Their treatment includes hands-on manipulation of the spine and other joints to help your body heal itself. They also may use heat or ice treatments, and they can recommend exercises and stretching to help you stay healthy. They also can perform soft tissue massage and other manual or manipulative therapies, such as kinesio taping, joint bracing, ultrasound, and ice packs. There is some scientific evidence that chiropractic can relieve back pain and headaches. However, there is no evidence that it can prevent or cure cancer or other severe conditions.
