Ticks – What to do if you get one #2413

Tick season - (April through the first frost)
When walking in wooded or grassy areas wear long-sleeved shirts and long loose-fitting pants tucked into socks.
If you find a tick on you or your pet, do not remove it wit alcohol, vaseline or a lighted match. These methods can cause the tick to regurgitate under your skin, raising your chance of illness. A better way is to use a tweezers and gently gasp the tick and pull it steadily outward at the same angle the tick is facing.
Keep the tick in a jar of alcohol, so it can be identified later if you develop a bull’s-eye rush or other suspicious symptoms.

Tobacco and Tooth Loss #5106

A cording with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, tobacco users have a greater chance of loosing their teeth. Fourteen percent of current smokers older than 20 years have lost all of their teeth. That compares with only 4.6 percent of people who have never smoked. The reason being, people who use tobacco in any form are at far greater risk of gum disease.

Are your concentration and energy levels low in the afternoon? #4899

Noon food choices can affect your mid-afternoon energy. Try limiting afternoon fatigue with these ideas.

Choose complex carbohydrates such as whole grains and nutrient-rich fruits and milk instead of candy and other sweets. Carbohydrates are our body’s main energy source.

Mix carbohydrate foods with protein for long-lasting energy, such us whole-wheat pasta and marinara with a grilled skinless chicken breast, or combine whole-grain crackers and fresh fruit with low-fat cheese.

Drink enough fluids so that you rarely feel thirst and your urine is colorless or slightly yellow. Dehydration can cause you to feel fatigued.

If you have a desk job, save a few minutes from your lunch break to get up and move, even five minutes of walking will give your afternoon energy level a lift.

Have a splinter? #5513

Don’t use the sewing needle! Just cut a small piece of fresh onion and place it on the padded part of a bandage, wrap it around the splintered skin and leave it overnight. By morning, the onion will have drawn the splinter to the surface, making it easy to remove with a pair of tweezers.
