Steps To Better Sleep For Children And Babies Part Two:

As wonderful and organic as sleep is, it can be the origin of continual frustration for countless people. When the problem is with a child or a baby, the frustration can be magnified.

Most people are often oblivious to just how crucial a part sleep plays in an individual's life. A proper night's rest is teaming with health benefits and it is important to understand just how and why that is. 

Sleep is a natural required activity for survival. This behavior occurs every day. The act of sleeping is vital in ensuring healthy, functioning cognitive and motor systems. This is especially true for growing children and infants. Children who lack sleep are often cranky and unable to focus on their daily tasks. They are also more prone to sickness, as sleep deprivation weakens the immune system. A lack of sleep also stunts a child's growth, which is otherwise encouraged with a proper night's rest.

When a child sleeps, both his/her body and brain go into resting mode. No one knows completely what the brain does when it is asleep. However, scientists have found that the brain replaces lost chemicals and improves memory when it is dormant. This explains why, after a good night's sleep, a person feels well rested and alert the moment he/she wakes up. A refreshed brain is better prepared to solve problems, retain what it has learned, and concentrate on the tasks at hand. 


Certain brain waves increase when a child is asleep. Once such type is the delta wave, which strengthens the endocrine system by secreting hormones in the blood. Other examples of sleep-dependent hormones are luteinizing hormones, of which puberty is dependent on. There are also growth hormones and prolactin, which is important in reproduction. All these hormones play a crucial part in ensuring that a child grows healthy and strong. While the brain undergoes repair when a child is asleep, so does the body. 

Youth is a time for play and restless activity. When a child is awake, he/she/ is always moving about. This strenuous activity means that kids put strain on their lean muscles, tissues, and bones. It is natural for these to tear and break when they are in constant use, so sleep is the natural answer to this. Sleep stimulates the body's systems to repair and restore these lost and torn ligaments. It also encourages growth and strengthens them. A proper night's rest makes the body more resilient and healthy. 


The remedies presented in this blog series are relevant to otherwise healthy children. If your son or daughter has any clinical or psychiatric conditions, please seek further assistance before using these techniques, methods described in the upcoming blogs. Be prepared to take control of this part of not only your life but your baby or child's life.

Living With Fibromyalgia: Part One



14 Years of Aches and Pains

It was a couple of years of fatigue, joint and muscle pain, IBS, swollen joints, occasional migraines ect ect before I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia was a fairly new idea then and not many doctors would even accept it as a real thing. Please be clear that I am NOT a doctor and nothing in my blogs are to be considered medical advice, but needless to say that I do pour tons of hours into research and am considered the non-medical expert amongst my family and friends. I have enjoyed success in relieving my symptoms through different methods and I thought it would be useful to share options outside of pills to others who may be suffering from fibromyalgia as well. I have had fibromyalgia for 14+ years now. Some may value information on how to manage fibromyalgia simply and naturally.

What Is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a disease that is characterized by widespread joint and muscle pain and fatigue. It implies pain in muscles, ligaments, and tendons that are the soft fibrous tissues of the body. It is a disorder that causes muscle pain and fatigue. Fibromyalgia as a diagnosable disorder has been recognized by the US National Institutes of Health and the American College of Rheumatology. People with fibromyalgia have "tender points" and these tender points are on specific parts like the neck, shoulders, arms, back, hips, and legs. These points hurt when moved or when pressure is put upon them. Reportedly 5 million Americans 18 or above suffer from fibromyalgia. Out of aa the fibromyalgia patients in America, 80% to 90% are women. So this disease is disproportionately common among middle-aged women. Furthermore, it has been estimated that people with specific diseases like systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus), Ankylosing spondylitis (spinal arthritis) or Rheumatoid arthritis are more likely to suffer from fibromyalgia. The probability of suffering from fibromyalgia increases when a family member already suffers from it. My grandmother on my Father's side had lupus, and I highly suspect that my grandmother on my Mother's side had fibromyalgia.  


Fibromyalgia is characterized by incessant muscle pain and fatigue but this condition is something that is not visible and patients face difficulties in finding out what is exactly happening to them. Some people consult a physician as soon as they feel abnormal pain in muscle joints while others associate it with tiredness caused by increased physical activity. Symptoms of fibromyalgia are associated with abnormal and widespread muscle and joint pain. There is no blood test or biomarker for fibromyalgia. On the same lines, fibromyalgia is a disorder that is characterized by widespread muscular pain and causes fatigue, sleeplessness, stress and mood swings. Researchers reveal that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by having an effect on the way your brain processes pain signals. 

This is the beginning of a series of discussions we will have about Fibromyalgia, IBS, Chronic Fatigue and a few related others. Please subscribe, share, like and comment below!

Calcium For Your Teeth-New Tooth Powder available



We all love our teeth and need them to speak, eat and depend on them for our beautiful smile. But we most definitely need to take care of our teeth. We often are misled or undereducated on the seriousness of taking care of our teeth or what methods to take.
Bacteria in the mouth feed on sugars in the food you eat and excrete acids that can damage teeth.  This damage is known as tooth decay and if left untreated can lead to cavities, and eventually toothache and infection.  Infected teeth may eventually need to be removed.

Purchase Our Natural Toothpowder HERE!


The hard outer layer of the tooth is called the enamel.  Below this is a softer layer called dentin, and the core of the tooth, the pulp, contains nerves and blood vessels that nourish the tooth. As all parts are important, the nerves are very sensitive AND important.

Purchase Our Natural Tooth Powder Here!


The existing bacteria in your mouth and the acids they produce combine to form a sticky substance called plaque.  The acids wear away the teeth for an estimated duration of twenty minutes after every time you eat and it’s important to remove plaque twice a day at a minimum to reduce the damage to teeth.
It is most important to ensure serious damage isn't caused to your teeth so that you will not experience pains and discomforts that could lead to the removal of your teeth or a less serious procedure called a root canal.


Endodontic treatments such as a root canal may be necessary to save a tooth that is severely infected. The pain from a severe toothache, often caused by damaged tissues in the tooth,  is usually remedied when an endodontist removes the damaged tissue through root canal treatments.

Oral hygiene can be broadly defined as the practice of taking care of one's mouth and keeping it clean and disease free. It also involves keeping your mouth free of a host of other problems such as bad breath by brushing regularly. Flossing and other such activities are also included in oral hygiene. It is necessary to practice oral hygiene on a regular basis to prevent a variety of oral as well as other health problems. 

The mouth is a door to the overall health and fitness of the human body. Hence, oral hygiene and health touch almost all the aspects of our lives. However, we still take it for granted. The mouth can also be considered as a mirror to our bodies as it can display the signs of a variety of things that are going wrong in the body. It can show the signs of a variety of things that are going wrong in the body. It can show the signs of nutritional deficiencies as well as general infections. The mouth also shows the first symptoms of many chronic and severe diseases as well. Oral health is important at every age. It does not matter whether you are 7 or 70, keeping your mouth clean and healthy is a must. Cavities are still one of the most common oral problems. 


Many people believe that flossing and brushing are only important for cosmetic and social reasons. They believe that regular brushing and flossing only contribute to the health of their gums, teeth and oral cavity and prevent halitosis and maintain minty fresh breath. 

The mouth is considered to be the first step of the digestive system. The first and foremost function of teeth for modern human beings is chewing food. With the help of teeth, the food is broken into small particles that are easy to swallow. The next step is the mixture of saliva in the food particles. This mixture is necessary for proper digestion. Thus, the mouth forms an integral part of the digestive system. Poor oral health can cause problems in this process that can hamper your ability to consume nutritious foods. You cannot consume food if your teeth give you pain or there are certain problems with your gums.  

For the above reasons, it is necessary to take good care of your oral cavity it is not a difficult task to take care of your mouth. Your mouth is like a door to your body, and it can reveal a lot of things about you and your health. Even a swab of saliva can help a doctor know a lot about you. Chronic infections are often caused due to improper oral hygiene routine. For instance, a chronic infection can lead to tooth loss. However, tooth loss is not the last thing you need to worry about. Gum disease can lead to a variety of other problems as well. 

Poor oral hygiene can cause a lot of problems. Poor dental health is bad for your social life as well. One of the symptoms of poor oral hygiene is halitosis, i. e. bad breath. Bacteria work on small food particles stuck in your teeth and produces chemicals like hydrogen sulfide. These chemicals like hydrogen sulfide. These chemicals emit a foul smell, which makes your mouth smell as well. 


This may sound surprising. However, poor oral hygiene can result in heart disease as well. According to research, people with periodontal diseases are more susceptible to heart disease and narrowing or arteries as compared to other people. This happens because bacteria can directly enter your bloodstream through affected gums. Many bacteria contain clot-promoting proteins that can lead to clogged arteries. Gingivitis a result of inflammation can also result in blood clots and clogged arteries. The bacteria from these infections can spread throughout the body including arteries as well. The infection may lead to the development of atherosclerotic plaques in the arteries that can lead to stroke. 

According to research, the more severe the infection, the more risk appears to be. Tooth loss may also lead to plaque in the carotid artery.

As mentioned earlier, bacteria from inflammation caused due to periodontal diseases can enter the bloodstream easily. These bacteria can also aggravate respiratory systems that can lead to respiratory problems, especially in the case of people who already have some respiratory problems, especially in the case of patients who already have some respiratory problems. According to a study, there exists a link between gum diseases and acute bronchitis and pneumonia.

About 95% of adults in the US who have diabetes were also found to have periodontal diseases. This shows that people with diabetes are more susceptible to oral infections as compared to other people. However, the vice versa is true as well. Periodontal diseases can also increase the risk of diabetic complications. It gets difficult to control blood sugar levels if you have periodontal diseases. 

Periodontal diseases can also result in insulin resistance. This, in turn, can disrupt the levels of blood sugar, which can complicate your condition. 

Diabetic people should always use sugar and alcohol-free toothpaste and oral hygiene products.

This may seem shocking but periodontal disease can also increase the risk of erectile dysfunction. According to a survey, men with periodontal diseases are 7 times more susceptible to erectile dysfunction than men with proper hygiene, Once again, bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the periodontal wounds and can inflame blood vessels near genitals, causing blockages.

Around 13% of babies born in the US are premature babies. Premature babies are delicate and are more susceptible to diseases and disorders as compared to regular babies. They also face medical problems such as respiratory issues and a host of infections. It is surprising to know that the mother's oral health can play a huge role in this. 

Doctors believe that the mother's body is one of the main reasons for premature births. A common site for infection is the mouth. Doctors found that if the mother followed proper rules of oral hygiene and use non-alchohlic mouthwash along with flossing and brushing; the risk of premature birth went down significantly.

Periodontal diseases can also result in low birth weight babies. Around 18% low weight babies born in the US are born due to poor oral health. Oral bacteria give out toxins that can travel through the bloodstream of the mother, towards the placenta. These bacteria can interfere with the development and growth of the fetus. 

Oral infections can signal the body to release labor-inducing substances before the proper time. This can trigger premature labor followed by birth.

Periodontal diseases can also lead to infertility problems in women. If a woman suffers from some gum disease, she may require more time to conceive as compared to women with good oral hygiene. 

Bad oral hygiene can also result in cancer. According to research, men with gum diseases were likely to develop kidney cancer, pancreatic cancer, and blood cancer. Lack of oral hygiene can also result in gum cancer, oral cancer and other forms of cancer as well.  
Here are some good habits that you can follow for total oral hygiene. In the final part of this blog, you will find tips on how to keep your mouth healthy at all ages and stages of life. 

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Use suitable brush and toothpaste.
  • Use interdental brushes to clean between your teeth at least once a day. You can even replace interdental brushes with floss.
  • To check for bad breath, lick your wrist and let it sit to partially dry. Now sniff it. If it smells bad then you probably have bad breath and you should clean your mouth.
  • Use mouthwash after flossing and before brushing.
  • Smoking is extremely injurious to overall body health. It can cause tooth staining, various gum diseases, etc. In severe cases, it can cause tooth loss and cancer. 
  • Always use safe tooth powder. Never use fluoride.
  • Throw away your worn out toothbrush after every three months or when the color signal alerts. 
  • Chewing gum isn't recommended mainly due to the sugars.
  • Brush and sometimes floss at least one hour after every meal. Brushing right after is said to possibly harm your enamel.
  • Gum disease can be prevented also by consuming a wholesome and healthy diet. 
  • Eat foods that are rich in minerals, vitamins, calcium, and other nutrients. Eat large amounts of greens and fruits.
  • Avoid sugar and sugary snacks. If you must consume sugar, limit it greatly and avoid intermittent snacking.

Homeschooling Part 2: Homeschooling and Learning: What Do You Believe?

Now that we have discussed they why of your homeschooling decisions and some various methods of homeschooling, in this blog we will be looking at some philosophies of education that may shape your choice of homeschooling methods.

Some methods and philosophies may overlap. For example, unschooling is really a philosophy of education because it has to do with how you believe children learn best, but I mentioned it in the last post about methods because it is also a way to homeschool.

Your philosophy of education really has to do with how you believe children learn best and how that affects your style or method of teaching.

Many traditional philosophies of education view the student as the passive learner while the teacher is the active one who imparts knowledge. This is why workbooks, textbooks, and lectures feature prominently as traditional methods of education. The teacher presents information in a carefully scripted way, and the student hears the information and regurgitates it on worksheets or tests.

The classical education philosophy suggests that children learn by training of the mind. This philosophy purposes that children move through three basic levels of learning called the "trivium." This philosophy focuses on different methods during the different stages of learning. For example, the first stage is an absorption of the facts so lots of memorization methods would be used.


Many homeschoolers subscribe to a Charlotte Manson philosophy of education. Charlotte Manson lived in England in the early 1900s. She wrote about a "gentle" philosophy of education where children are allowed to learn and discover things in a natural way during their early years. Charlotte Mason's philosophy was "Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life." Proponents of this philosophy read good, classic, "living" books and use methods such as narration, copywork, picture study, and nature study to teach in a gentle and natural way. You can read about Charlotte Manson and get her original six volumes in modern English, and get a free Charlotte Manson curriculum guide at Ambleside Online.

We have only skimmed the surface here, but these are some of the prominent philosophies of education that homeschoolers are drawing from today. Again, the first and foremost question goes back to your focus. Why are you homeschooling? This will affect your choice of methods and your educational philosophy. 

Resources:

Most unit studies cover all areas of the curriculum except math. Konos and Alpha Omega's Weaver are two Bible-based packaged unit studies. Mystery of History is a popular history based unit study. Sonlight is a popular literature-based unit study curriculum. My Father's World also uses great literature and is a unit study curriculum based on history cycles. Hands Of A Child offers laptop packages for many different unit studies. Homeschool Share has free unit study and lapbooking ideas.
