Subject: Fwd: Dr Masaru Emoto requests your positive thoughts, blessings and prayers for the water in and around Fukushima, Japan


A letter from Dr Masaru Emoto
Emoto
To All People Around the World,

Please send your prayers of love and gratitude to water at the nuclear plants in Fukushima, Japan!

By the massive earthquakes of Magnitude 9 and surreal massive tsunamis, more than 10,000 people are still missing – even now. It has been 16 days already since the disaster happened. What makes it worse is that water at the reactors of Fukushima Nuclear Plants started to leak, and it’s contaminating the ocean, air and water molecule of surrounding areas.

Day and Time:
March 31st, 2011 (Thursday)
12:00 noon in each time zone

Please say the following phrase:
“The water of Fukushima Nuclear Plant,
we are sorry to make you suffer.
Please forgive us. We thank you, and we love you.”

Please say it aloud or in your mind. Repeat it three times as you put your hands together in a prayer position. Please offer your sincere prayer.

Thank you very much from my heart.

With love and gratitude,
Masaru Emoto
Messenger of Water

“A Japanese Monk Sent this Prayer Request”

Dear friends,

…Our thoughts create vibrations around the world.

Ise Jingu shrine

Ise Jingu is the shrine most central to the identity of the Japanese as a people and as a nation.
Here is a request for prayers …time is relative, and healing comes from the Absolute.

Changing our thoughts, offering gentle suggestion to those around us who are broadcasting painful thoughts, and prayer can offer benefits at any time.
Much love, Tsukina

A Japanese Monk Sent this Prayer Request

The damage of earthquake in Japan is devastating.
Unable to cool down the reactor(s) we are facing a possibility of nuclear plant explosion.
Please join our prayer. Feel free to forward this prayer request to anyone.
It would be great if more people can pray.
Here is a translation of a message/oracle from the Ise Shrine in Japan:
After sunset (each day or any time-editor’s note), we need strong power of prayer.
Please let me deliver the message to as many as possible.
We can stop this earthquake with our prayer but right now the nuclear plant is in danger.

Please everyone heal the suffering, sadness, anger, worry about nuclear plants.
Please do not think that this accident will bring justice.
Please care for each other.  The energy toward conflict and fight is also fueling the things happening right now.
Please stop the conflict and stop the fight and change the worrying voice to the power of prayer.
Please pray that as many people as possible can be saved.
We will be O.K. if our hearts start connecting with each other, the earth will be healed.

There are the sound/vibration that can release the karma of earth.
Anyone who can make prayer sound, anyone who can do reiki,
anyone who can do long distance healing, ( everyone that prays-editor’s note)
please direct your energy to the center of Japan .
The exact location is above the Hachiro gata, Akita Prefecture .

If you can sing, please sing.
Humming is fine too.
Let the earth listen to the sound.

Please send gratitude to the earth.
If the mother earth wakes up then everything will stop.
The word Song/Sing writes in Japanese Kanji that small possibilities
support a big lack.
Please send your prayer to the earth to wake up the spirit.

I will be in meditation after the sunset.
I will pray for the light shining the sky even in the darkness.
Please everyone be safe.
Thank you for supporting my heart at this very difficult time.
Gratitude for the life.
Fuma

“MD ‘s advise- KI pills for US radition”

Should you buy potassium iodide (KI) tablets to counteract possible radiation exposure?

Although the role of KI pills has been discussed for decades, many people still don’t know the guidelines for stocking or taking them, says Richard T. Kloos, MD, Chief Operating Officer of the American Thyroid Association (ATA).

“There’s no reason that the American public should take these now.” However, this issue surpasses the current situation in Japan.”
“We would like the American public to be knowledgeable and informed, but now is not the time for Americans to panic,” Dr. Kloos says. “I don’t think the American public is at any risk, and I don’t think they should be taking any prophylaxis unless a reliable source tells them to do so.”

Potential Side Effects of KI pills
Although KI is considered very safe (the iodine is the same as that found in table salt) clinicians should make patients aware of the rare but real risks, says Dr. Kloos, Co-Director of The Ohio State University Thyroid Cancer Unit in Columbus, Ohio.

Allergic reactions are always a concern.
“When large populations took potassium iodide in Poland after Chernobyl, it was shown to be quite safe,” he says.

“But small numbers of people did experience things like skin rashes, abdominal discomfort, and vomiting.”
In addition, the same process that makes iodine protective in radiation exposure can also alter thyroid function in the longer term. The thyroid acts like a sponge in the presence of iodine, so saturating it with regular iodine prevents the uptake of radioactive iodine found in nuclear fallout.
If someone continues to take KI pills over a period of time, the thyroid may shut down and the person may develop hypothyroidism, Dr. Kloos says. Alternatively, people with overactive thyroids could also develop complications.
“Iodine is a fuel for our thyroids,” Dr. Kloos says. “If you dump in fuel, some people could exacerbate their hyperthyroidism.”
The main take-away point to give patients, says Dr. Kloos, is that if there’s no benefit from KI supplementation, as in the absence of radiation exposure, then even these low-level risks are unacceptable. Given the vast distance that any radiation from Japan would have to travel, US residents have no cause for concern.
KI’s Role in Overall Response
The larger issue is whether people should stock KI pills in the event that they are exposed to radiation. The controversy stems from several issues, including:
disagreements about how large an area would be affected quickly in the event of a nuclear accident; concerns that widespread distribution of KI pills would give people a false sense of security, given that the pills only protect against thyroid cancer and not against other radionuclides or other body organs; and concerns that a wider distribution would undermine the public’s confidence in the safety of nuclear power.

The US Nuclear Regulatory Commission provides KI pills to states with nuclear power plants, enabling (but not requiring) them to distribute the pills to residents within 10 miles of a plant.[1] In 2002, Congress ordered that the distance be extended to 20 miles, but in 2008 the Bush Administration invoked a waiver to override that provision. The new ruling said that the 10-mile radius was adequate because the primary focus would be on evacuation and avoidance of contaminated food and water.
In contrast, the ATA’s position since 1984 has been that KI pills should be distributed to households within 50 miles of a nuclear power plant and should be available to those within a 200-mile radius.[2] In fact, it cites evidence from the Chernobyl nuclear accident to support its position:
After the 1986 Chornobyl (formerly called “Chernobyl”) nuclear accident, shifting winds blew a radioactive cloud all over Europe. As many as 3,000 people exposed to that radiation have already developed thyroid cancer. Most victims had been babies or young children living in Ukraine, Belarus, or Russia at the time of the accident. According to a UN report released in February 2002, another 8,000 to 10,000 exposed people may develop thyroid cancer within the next 10 years. Poland, immediately adjacent to Belarus and Ukraine, distributed KI to its people and does not appear to have had an increase in thyroid cancer.[2]
“We think the disaster zone for a drug that is potentially cancer preventive with limited side effects — and one that is hard to distribute after a disaster — needs to be distributed beforehand to people within 50 miles,” says Dr. Kloos. The ATA supports the focus on evacuation but still believes that KI pills can be an important part of an evacuation plan if distributed before a disaster takes place.
“Because of the panic and infrastructure disruption that can occur, getting away is not as easy as one might think it is,” Dr. Kloos says. “We saw how hard it was to get away from Hurricane Katrina.” People in radiation-disaster areas could at least have some protection with KI pills while they implement their evacuation plans if they stocked the pills ahead of time.
In fact, Dr. Kloos believes that it is reasonable for anyone to keep a supply of KI pills in their homes. But, he says, there is no reason for anyone right now to rush out and buy them or to pay higher prices from distributors who are cashing in on current fears. His advice today is the same as it was a week ago, or even years ago, when it generally fell on deaf ears. He hopes that the heightened interest spurred by the situation in Japan will lead to better awareness of the facts, especially among clinicians.

“Help Japan recover its health”

World Care Civilian Emergency Relief Center of Tucson is on high alert to assist in the aftermath of a devastating 8.9 earthquake that hit Japan this morning, March 11, 2011. As aftershocks continue to hit the region, assessments of the tsunami will continue to come in over the next week. Thousands of bodies are reported to have washed ashore.

World CaWorld Care is collaborating with FEMA Region 9 to manage civilian volunteers and supply aid to affected regions if needed. Region 9 includes Hawaii, California, Arizona, Nevada, Guam, the North Mariana Islands, the Republic of Marshall Islands, Federal State of Micronesia, and American Samoa.

 

Rescue workers combed the tsunami-battered region north of Tokyo, where officials say at least 10,000 people were killed in the 8.9-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that followed it.

“It’s a scene from hell, absolutely nightmarish,” said Patrick Fuller of the International Red Cross Federation from the northeastern coastal town of Otsuchi.

Prime Minister Naoto Kan has dubbed the multiple disasters Japan’s worst crisis since World War Two and, with the financial costs estimated at up to $180 billion, analysts said it could tip the world’s third biggest economy back into recession.
World Care is collaborating with FEMA Region 9 to manage civilian volunteers and supply aid to affected regions if needed. Region 9 includes Hawaii, California, Arizona, Nevada, Guam, the North Mariana Islands, the Republic of Marshall Islands, Federal State of Micronesia, and American Samoa.

Early warning systems and FEMA evacuation plans have been very effective in Hawaii and California so that casualties and injuries caused by this disaster are prevented or minimized.

World Care encourages civilians within communities to be ready to respond when disasters strike. It is currently working in partnership with local and state government agencies in a city-wide effort to develop a disaster communications plan and training.

Fifth largest earthquake in the 20th century and the largest since the Japanese have begun taking recordings in the 18oos.  See video.

“Healthy living after radiation fallout”

“The best defense is a good offense” when it comes to living in good health and calmness despite the radiation we are surrounded with daily from x-rays, microwaves, cell towers, utility line, cell phones, electric appliances and devices and nuclear fallout.
Natural quality care for the body, calmness and peace for our mind, relationships and spirit and a one pointed focus on doing the very best for ourselves and others is the goal. Worry and fear destroys everything they touch and undermines the best of intentions to progress.
Let us commit ourselves to calmly go forward. There are many ways to build the body to protect it from the effects of radiation.

Suggested home first aid for radiation exposure

if serious see your doctor or go to the emergency services provided

First within the body if one has been exposed to radiation the radioactive particles need to be bound and excrete them from the body.

Here’s the final summary of well-known radiation detox procedures:

For detox from External Contamination from radiation:

If the radioactive exposure just happened, flush the exposed areas with copious amounts of water and clip the hair if there is excessive radioactive contamination nuclear power plant melt down or a bomb blast).

1. Wash wounds vigorously (scrub them) to make sure no radioactive contaminants can enter the body, and sometimes this is done with special chelation solutions.  (Check www.RadiationDetox.com)
2. Types of baths needed 1-3 times per week)

  • Follow with a clay baths to help remove radioactive heavy metals from the skin
  • Soak in a warm sea salt and baking soda baths (1 lb or 2.2 Km) of both sea salt and baking soda for 20 minutes then rinse with cool water.
  • Epson/Clorox baths are possible for this type of heavy metal detox as well. They are used at home for general detoxification purposes and tend to energize the body. Use 6 oz (.17 kg) Epson salts and 3 TBS (45 grams) Chlorox in warm water then rinse in cool water.
  • Bentonite or other clay baths (1 cup or )

Tp protect the body or cleans it after contamination:

After exposed to radioactive particles, the emergency room may use  EDTA chelation therapy, Prussian Blue or the use of other binding agents.

At home take Potassium iodide to help the thyroid gland block from radioiodide uptake, and follow the detox food plan above.

Spirulina, chlorella and other seaweeds

A high fiber diet, or chelating substances (pectin, alginates, …)

To Rebuild Immunity: Yeast and yeast beta glucans, 
mushrooms, 
ginseng (for energy as well) and Bee Pollen

Rebuilding the blood strategies:

Avoid sweets and sugars, and high glycemic foods like wheat

To Rebuild the Blood (Combat Anemia): 
To build the blood for the hematopoietic syndrome, beet juice, liver extract, spleen extract, alkyglycerols and cytokine factors, like Neupogen, are warranted.
You’ll also need a good (whole food if possible) multivitamin/mineral supplement for its trace minerals, folic acid, B-12, B-6, iron and other nutrients to create strong blood cells.

Fish oils: (cod liver and krill oils) can help suppress levels of proinflammatory cytokines to decrease systemic inflammation and injury new red blood cell-forming proteins. Nettle leaf extract can be helpful.
Lack of melatonin has been linked to a decrease in red blood cells and anemia, so keep a bottle of melatonin to encourage deeper sleep during stressful times and to protect the cells from the damaging effects of radioactivity.
Nettles leaf and yellow dock (and in some case red root

Homeopathic Ferrum phos 6c can help the body recover from anemia.
Rebuilding the body or building it require blood building, with quality whole raw or steamed vegetables and raw fruits, vitamins and minerals and fatty acids.

Try vegetable juicing, green powders, spirulina, chlorella, seaweeds and other easily digestable foods, especially those containing large sources of chlorophyll to build strong healthy red blood cells and oxygenate the blood.

As to specific herbs and formulations you can use, just as with homeopathy you should go by the advice of a skilled practitioner.

These are the various factors that may help with hematopoietic syndrome, and for the gastrointestinal syndrome you need to look into glutamine usage as well.

To protect and detox from radiation exposure eat foods from the list below:

Be careful to balance your foods and supplements. Do not eat only these foods.

Be mindful of energizing your foods before eating calmly.

Foods to build and clease

Miso soup

Seaweeds (high nucleotides for repair, building and detox of cells): 
spirulina, chlorella, blue greens and the algaes (kelp, etc.)

Fruits (high in beta carotene):
apples, apricots, avocado, bananas, blackberries. blueberries, cantaloupe, cherry, cranberries currants, grapes, nectarine, papaya (slightly), pineapple (slightly)

 spinach, sweet potato, turnip
squash: acorn, butternut, summer  squash

Herbs and spices: activated charcoal pills, barley grass, dandelion greens , garlic, horseradish, lecithin, mango leaf, miso soup, onions, Siberian ginseng preferable to Panax, turmeric (though not high in thiols, it  is really good at raising thiol levels), yeast extract and lecithin and bentonite (Prepare by adding 4 oz (113.4 g) of unboiled water to 1 oz. (28.35 g) clay and let it sit for  and then stir in 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of lecithin and drink once a day or as often as your practitioner recommends. Drink lots of water throughout the day 3 to 4 liters.

“Effects of radiation on living tissues”

Radiation may come from either an external source like fallout from bombs, melt down from nuclear power plant melt downs  given off into the environment both air, water and food, x-ray machine, or an internal source, such as an injected radioisotope.

How does radiation effect living tissues?
The impact of radiation on living tissue is complicated by the type of radiation and the variety of tissues.

What effect can ionizing radiation have on the cells’ chemical bonds?
The functions of living tissue are carried out by molecules, that is, combinations of different types of atoms united by chemical bonds. Some of these molecules can be quite large. The proper functioning of these molecules depends upon their composition and also their structure (shape). Altering chemical bonds may change composition or structure.

Ionizing radiation is powerful enough disrupt chemical bonding. For example, a typical ionization releases six to seven times the energy needed to break the chemical bond between two carbon atoms.[91] This ability to disrupt chemical bonds means that ionizing radiation focuses its impact in a very small but crucial area, a bit like a karate master focusing energy to break a brick. The same amount of raw energy, distributed more broadly in nonionizing form, would have much less effect. For example, the amount of energy in a lethal dose of ionizing radiation is roughly equal to the amount of thermal energy in a single sip of hot coffee.[92] The crucial difference is that the coffee’s energy is broadly distributed in the form of nonionizing heat, while the radiation’s energy is concentrated in a form that can ionize.

What is DNA?
Of all the molecules in the body, the most crucial is DNA (deoxyribose nucleic acid), the fundamental blueprint for all of the body’s structures. The DNA blueprint is encoded in each cell as a long sequence of small molecules, linked together into a chain, much like the letters in a telegram. DNA molecules are enormously long chains of atoms wound around proteins and packed into structures called chromosomes within the cell nucleus. Only a small part of this DNA needs to be read at any one time to build a specific molecule. Each cell is continually reading various parts of its own DNA as it constructs fresh molecules to perform a variety of tasks.

What effect can ionizing radiation have on DNA?
Ionizing radiation, by definition, “ionizes,” that is, it pushes an electron out of its orbit around an atomic nucleus, causing the formation of electrical charges on atoms or molecules. If this electron comes from the DNA itself or from a neighboring molecule and directly strikes and disrupts the DNA molecule, the effect is called direct action. This initial ionization takes place very quickly, in about 0.000000000000001 of a second. However, today it is estimated that about two-thirds of the damage caused by x rays is due to indirect action. This occurs when the liberated electron does not directly strike the DNA, but instead strikes an ordinary water molecule. This ionizes the water molecule, eventually producing what is known as a free radical.

A free radical reacts very strongly with other molecules as it seeks to restore a stable configuration of electrons. A free radical may drift about up to 10,000,000,000 times longer than the time needed for the initial ionization (this is still a very short time, about 0.00001 of a second), increasing the chance of it disrupting the crucial DNA molecule. This also increases the possibility that other substances could be introduced that would neutralize free radicals before they do damage.
What immediate effects can ionizing radiation have on living cells?
All of these collisions and ionizations take place very quickly, in less than a second. It takes much longer for the biological effects to become apparent. If the damage is sufficient to kill the cell, the effect may become noticeable in hours or days. Cell “death” can be of two types. First, the cell may no longer perform its function due to internal ionization; or “reproductive death” (mitotic inhibition) may occur when a cell can no longer reproduce, but still performs its other functions.
Death may also result if cell reproduction ceases in parts of the body where cells are continuously being replaced at a high rate (such as the blood cell-forming tissues and the lining of the intestinal tract).

What long-term effects can radiation have?
The effect of the radiation may not be to kill the cell, but to alter its DNA code in a way that leaves the cell alive but with an error in the DNA blueprint. The effect of this mutation will depend on the nature of the error and when it is read. Since this is a random process, such effects are now called stochastic.[100] Two important stochastic effects of radiation are cancer, which results from mutations in nongerm cells (termed somatic cells), and heritable changes, which result from mutations in germ cells (eggs and sperm).

How can ionizing radiation cause cancer?
Cancer is can be produced if radiation does not kill the cell but creates an error in the DNA blueprint. Different cells have different sensitivities to radiation thus some take longer to show its effects like bone marrow is more sensitive than skin cells to radiation-induced cancer.  If the cell’s DNA mutates it can lose control of cell division, and begins dividing uncontrollably which produces the phenomena known as cancer. This effect might not appear for many years.
Cancers induced by radiation do not differ from cancers due to other causes, so there is no simple way to measure the rate of cancer induced by radiation.

Because the cancers can occur anytime in the exposed person’s lifetime,
How can ionizing radiation produce genetic mutations?
The risk of genetic mutation is expressed in terms of the doubling dose: the amount of radiation that would cause additional mutations equal in number to those that already occur naturally from all causes, thereby doubling the naturally occurring rate of mutation.
Well, on the one hand radiation can cause genetic mutation (cell death or cancer)… it can cause illness due to mutated proteins and whatnot that cause cellular function and processes to become messed up (radiation sickness). That is radiation, by itself. Radioactive material gives off radiation. If consumed or ingested, the source of radiation would be inside the body, providing a continuous dose.

Most radioactive materials are poisonous by its very chemical nature… like uranium, cesium, which is a heavy metal… and is poisonous regardless of its isotopic properties.

And chemical isotope that has one chemical property can be consumed and utilized by the body, naturally… like the formation of cell membranes or calcium for bones. If those chemicals themselves were radioactive then when they decay, they will convert to alternative chemicals. The radiation or material itself is irrelevant in this case, but the problem arises in the fact that essential components of the body are no longer built using the proper materials.

“German bologna recall for slow recooking time”

New York Firm Recalls Bologna Products Due To a Processing Deviation and Possible Contamination with Staphylococcus aureus Enterotoxin
Recall Release CLASS I RECALL
FSIS-RC-018-2011 HEALTH RISK: HIGH

WASHINGTON, March 9, 2011 – Zweigle’s Inc., a Rochester, N.Y., establishment, is recalling approximately 2,997 pounds of bologna products that may be contaminated with Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxin, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.

The following products are subject to recall: [View Label (PDF Only)]

  • Cases containing two 10-pound packages of “PRICE CHOPPER German Brand Bologna Made With Pork & Chicken.”

Each 10-pound package bears establishment number “EST. 5333” within the USDA mark of inspection. The products were produced on Jan. 5, 2011, and packaged on Jan. 7, 2011. Each package also bears a white sticker including the package code “007” and a use-by date “03/08/11.” The products were shipped to a distribution center in New York. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on FSIS’ website at www.fsis.usda.gov/
FSIS_Recalls/Open_Federal_Cases/index.asp
.

After discovering a malfunction with its smokehouse, the plant recooked the bologna products and shipped them to the distribution center. During routine inspection activities, FSIS discovered that the time delay in recooking the product created an environment allowing potential production of Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxin. FSIS has received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact a physician.

FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall should contact the company’s Chief Operating Officer, Kevin Salva, at (585) 546-1740.

Consumers with food safety questions can “Ask Karen,” the FSIS virtual representative available 24 hours a day at AskKaren.gov. The toll-free USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-674-6854) is available in English and Spanish and can be reached from l0 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Eastern Time) Monday through Friday. Recorded food safety messages are available 24 hours a day.

“Beware dental abuses and lies”

Author Editor Mary Wolken, Exec. Dir. CMA

How long have we heard to get semi annual check up and cleaning for your teeth. “The old expression of be true to your teeth or they will be false to you” Is truer today than any time in the past.

The falseness is not only in the false teeth that click away not fitting properly in so many peoples’ mouths, but also to the tools and the consciousness of the dental”care” industry.

The false premise that getting your teeth drilled, filled, root canalled, or implanted with a series of metals, poisonous chemicals, false patient education and excessive fees is only superceeded by the “supported” care of the dental insurance industry who has not improved its policies in 25 years.

There seems to be few healthy safe natural chemicals, filling materials or procedures used by a dentist that would stand the test of non-toxicity, non-leaching or off gassing in a patient’s mouth over time. A patient’s mouth is turned into a chemical battery that constantly is a threat to the patient’s long term health and well being, but could be used to transmit radio signals.

Then there are the dentists who have decided to forget quality dentistry and honesty and tell you anything to get your money for less than top care. If they develop their practices in several locations in town and across the border, then if the fillings or posts used in your mouth are inferior or the posts not long enough they will be so o kind that the defects in the care will not be seen until the tooth decays further in the patient’s mouth and another dentist is now in charge of the case and the first bandit has long ago collected his money and will lie if confronted about the poor craftsman ship in the patient’s mouth. Forget giving money back or compensating you for the hours of wasted time waiting for the poor care in the office..

Even when a holistic dentist can be seen and afforded, there is no standard of excellence to holistic care. Possible because none of today’s dentists have been trained in schools that have a holistic standard of care and or there is not enough of a demand for quality natural care.

I once went to a holistic dentist that considered the anticeptic used to be health anf holistic that was made from creosotum. Yes, it is made from the croesote bush that grows naturally in the southwestern desert of the US, but creosotum has traditionally been used to tan leather. The taste lingered in my mouth for two days that cannot be a good thing.

Wood creosote has been used as a disinfectant, a laxative, and a cough treatment, but these have mostly been replaced by newer medicines. Coal tar creosote is used as a wood preservative. It is distilled from crude coke oven tar, and is mainly composed of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), but also contains phenols and cresols.

So what is a person to do.

Buyer the risk is all yours. Unless you have  lots of kids, dental insurance is a farce and a complete scam. your could  put the same amount of money you give the dental insurance people into an account and let it earn interest for you and use it as you need for your dental well being. Dental insurance takes your monthly payments religiously every month, but you cannot used more than the most inexpensive of dental services like cleaning and maybe a filling or two for six months after getting the insurance. After that no extractions or more involved care for a full year then that care is parceled out like a mister gives away his gold.

We cannot let rotting teeth stay in your mouth, because of other health risk so take good care of your choppers. The goal is to have them last through your whole life.

Home dentistry is not the answer.

What is desperately needed is quality healthy care for all and the education needed to foster it. The ancient dental dynasty that has not changed much since Egyptian times needed to become more wholistic and work more closely with other natural care practitioners to look at and encourage whole care.

An example would be someone who has played sports or had a head or birth injury, these individuals’ jaws and skulls problably need to be realigned before any dental care to avoid severe and uneven wearing of the teeth and the bite reset. For teeth grinding this too needed to be solved or aided, before fillimgs etc. are donw so teeth and the bite remains even.

Next, dental care how to keep teeth healthy myths and truths.

“Explore the science of happiness”

“…happiness exposes results that not only are surprising but reinforce things we should have known all along: like the fact that having flowers in the house really does make us happier. As the instructor of “The Science of Happiness” at Harvard Medical School and the director of the Program in Aesthetics and Well Being at Massachusetts General Hospital, Nancy Etcoff is uniquely qualified to solve the mysteries of contentment.

“Skewering the popular wisdom that beauty is a social construct, this Harvard psychologist argues that we ogle such features because they radiate the health and fertility our species needs to survive.”
