Teeth whitener.... Go Black 

Whiten Teeth With Charcoal?


I was kinda skeptical that charcoal could actually help whiten teeth. I also, kept it around the house, I’d also seen first hand what happens when it spills on a kitchen floor (grout = permanently ruined) so I was afraid it would stain my teeth and not whiten them.


How Charcoal Works


Activated charcoal is a highly absorbent substance. It removes toxins when they adhere to the surface of the charcoal. It is not absorbed by the body, but passes through the GI system, so chemicals and toxins adhere to it, which then pass through the body and are expelled by the digestive system.


In the 1800s, two men took lethal doses of poisons (including arsenic) and survived without harm… their secret: they mixed the poisons with activated charcoal powder. (Stating the obvious: do not try to repeat these experiments!)

Activated charcoal is extremely effective at binding to toxins from household chemicals, ingested medicines, and other chemicals from the body, especially when taken within 30 minutes of ingestion. For this reason, it is a great first treatment for any kind of poisoning, but should not be taken within several hours of medications (or even vitamins) that DO need to be absorbed.


People use Activated Charcoal when They have an awful bout of food poisoning, it workes wonders! Suggested use is to mixed about a tablespoon of activated charcoal with water and drink quickly. The food poisoning symptoms went away within a couple of hours. This one dose was enough to remedy most food poisoning, but others report having to take this dose several times within a day before finding relief.

Charcoal is not a substance I would take regularly, as it can cause constipation and block mineral absorption if it is taken when it is not needed. Also, it can’t be mixed with dairy products or many foods, as they lower its effectiveness. Charcoal can also cause dehydration in large doses so it is important to consume enough water when charcoal is consumed.

So, it’s all well and good that activated charcoal is an effective poison remedy… but does it really work to whiten teeth. 

I did some research and found out that even though it temporarily makes the mouth look extremely black it has the same effect as it does when ingested: it pulls toxins from the mouth and removes stains. Fair warning: when you open your mouth, it is completely black and rather scary looking!

To my surprise, all of the black washes away and it makes your teeth feel extremely clean and smooth. After a few uses, my teeth were noticeably whiter too. 

Further research I’ve done on this showed that activated charcoal can actually be helpful in changing the pH and health of the mouth, and as such is effective in preventing cavities and killing the bad bacteria present in tooth decay and gingivitis. For this reason, I now use it as part of my remineralizing protocol for teeth, along with my remineralizing toothpaste.


Of course, it is important to check with your own doctor and dentist before using this or any substance internally or orally.


How I Used Charcoal to Whiten Teeth


Dip a clean, wet toothbrush into the powdered charcoal (or dump a capsule of charcoal on the toothbrush). Lean over the container of charcoal and quickly put the charcoal covered toothbrush in the mouth (this is to protect your sink). Brush in small, gentle circles for 2 minutes, spit carefully and rinse really well.


Your mouth will feel amazingly clean…. your sink, not so much! Use as often as needed. Readers have also reported mixing the charcoal with water and swishing with it for two minutes.


Where to Get Activated Charcoal


Most natural health stores carry activated charcoal in loose powder or capsule form and it is also available online. I keep both the powdered and capsuled forms on hand in case it is needed for poisoning and I keep the powder in a small glass jar for tooth brushing. Make sure that the charcoal is from wood or coconut sources and not petroleum-based.


It is also very important to note the difference between food/supplement grade activated charcoal and other forms of charcoal. I hope it goes without saying, but I’ll say it to be safe:


Do not use any other form of charcoal besides activated charcoal in your mouth or internally. Do not use leftover charcoal from a BBQ grill or charcoal briquettes. Do not use charcoal pencils or any other type of charcoal.


Charcoal Whitening FAQs


I’ve received some of the same questions about this process multiple times so I’ve asked friends who are dentists and done further research to try to answer them:


Does it Stain Crowns/Veneers/Fillings?


I don’t have any of these in a visible place to be able to share any firsthand experience. Readers have reported trying this method of teeth whitening without a problem on these types of surfaces, but I’d definitely recommend checking with your dentist before using this or anything else if you have any of these.


Does Charcoal Pull Calcium From the Teeth?


Another question that I’ve received often. As always, check with a dentist if you have concerns about your teeth and before using any substance to whiten them. From the research I found, charcoal binds mostly to organic compounds and not minerals so there should not be a concern of it pulling calcium from the teeth.


Is Charcoal Too Abrasive for Teeth?


This is one concern that some dental professionals have expressed about whitening teeth with charcoal and it is a valid concern. I was unable to find any research that evaluated how abrasive charcoal was to the surface of the teeth. A suggestion from my friend who is a dentist is to use the charcoal without brushing or scrubbing.


She suggested that anyone worried about charcoal being abrasive or anyone with sensitive teeth could accomplish the same thing by simply dabbing charcoal onto the surface of the teeth with a finger or cotton swab and letting it sit on the surface of the teeth for two minutes before swishing with water and rinsing.


This would allow the charcoal to come in contact with the surface of the tooth long enough to remove surface stains without the brushing or scrubbing action that could be too abrasive.


What Kind of Stains Does Charcoal Work On?


My dentist friend also advised me that activated charcoal will only work on surface stains that it is able to bind to, especially those from drinks like coffee and tea. This is because it creates its absorbent properties which allow it to pull these stains from the teeth. It won’t usually work on teeth that have yellowed from antibiotics or other internal problems.

After using the activated charcoal for a few months and swishing with diluted regular 3% hydrogen peroxide when I remember (at the recommendation of a dentist) I am really happy with how white my teeth have become!

Should you use Dead Sea Salt?

The Dead Sea is basically a salt lake which is extended from all sides of Israel and West Bank in the west and Jordan in the east. It is also referred to as Salt Lake because of the hyper saline nature. This sea is considered to have the lowest lift on land and is thus the deepest lake in the world. Because of its saline nature which is even saltier than the oceans most of the aquatic animals and plants are not able to sustain life in this sea which is why the name Dead Sea is given to it. It is 55 km long and 18 km wide when it comes to dimensions. Many cosmetics items and herbal sachets have been made by utilizing the salt and minerals of the Dead Sea. It is also a famous tourist spot because of its beneficial nature. The climatic conditions are usually dry and sunny during summers and cold during winters at the location where the Dead Sea is situated. It contains many minerals such as calcium, zinc, potassium, magnesium, boron, lithium, sodium and what not and thus is also a health research center as it provides various health related advantages. Salt and minerals of the Dead Sea are used for the treatment of many health problems. This article consists of the top ten surprising health benefits of Dead Sea that many people are not aware of.

10. CALMS DOWN THE NERVOUS SYSTEM


Nervous System as we all know is an important part of human body and if nervous system malfunctions then it can lead to many problems such as damaging of the nerve cells of brain and spinal cord which may lead to difficulty in swallowing, speaking and breathing and thus rapidly progressive weakness. Thus failure of nervous system will either lead to paralysis or death. Floating or swimming in the Dead Sea can prevent all theses diseases as Dead Sea contains salt and huge amount of different minerals and most importantly Bromine which is an essential constituent that promotes relaxation and thus calms down the nervous system. Also, Zinc and Magnesium which are commonly known as the calming minerals in our body are also found in abundance in Dead Sea which thus helps to calm our nerves.


9. INCREASES BLOOD CIRCULATION


Proper blood circulation is very important for a person to stay healthy and fit because if blood is not circulated efficiently then it could prove dangerous as if any area will not get proper access to blood then it may lead to death of the tissue of that area which thereby will cause malfunctioning of that part. When people spend time in the water of the Dead Sea then the minerals such as Magnesium, Potassium and Iron which are present in there are absorbed by the skin and thus helps to increase the blood circulation of the body thereby keeping the body healthy.

8. HELPS TO REDUCE HEART PROBLEMS


Heart problems or heart diseases which are also referred to as cardiovascular diseases are very hazardous to one’s life. The most common reason of heart diseases is either thickening of blood vessels due to accumulation of fats or due to hypertension. Many deaths have been recorded worldwide due to cardiovascular diseases. Floating in the Dead Sea tends to relieve from hypertension and also the presence of Potassium, Magnesium and Calcium helps to control blood pressure thereby reducing the risk to heart diseases and thus ensuring long and healthier life. It is advisable for the heart patients to either swim in the Dead Sea or to apply the sand of Dead Sea over the body so as to keep the heart problems under control.

7. PREVENTS HAIR LOSS


Hair loss is seen in many people because of many causes such as stress, due to high fever of viral diseases for a prolonged period, malnutrition, genetic reasons, harmful drugs, side effects of cosmetics, unhealthy water and many other reasons. Sand of Dead Sea has proved to be very effective for preventing hair loss. Many cosmetic products have also been launched which contains Dead Sea sand in order to treat hair related diseases and for the treatment of hair loss. Calcium which is the one of the essential mineral responsible for healthy and shiny hair is also the major constituent of Dead Sea. Thus, applying the sand of Dead Sea on the hair will provide a glowing appearance to the hair and will also prevent the hair from damage and loss. Also, washing hair with the water of the Dead Sea make it more smoother and softer.

6. REDUCES STRESS


Nowadays, due to hectic schedule and never ending demands, each and every person faces stress either due to one reason or the other. Stress can prove to be very hazardous as it is the root cause of most health problems. It can lead to heart diseases, depression, autoimmune diseases, sleep problems, digestive problems, obesity, skin conditions such as eczema and many other physical and mental health problems.

It is a well known fact that swimming helps to reduce stress. Swimming in the Dead Sea will thus help to reduce stress plus it has an added advantage of the Magnesium present in it which is also referred to as an anti stress mineral. Even if one does not know swimming, he or she can easily float in the water of the Dead Sea as the excess of salt present in the Dead Sea helps one to float in the water without drowning.

5. REDUCES JOINT INFLAMMATION


Joint inflammation which is usually characterized by joint pain, loss of functioning of joints, joint stiffness, swelling of joints or redness is a problem that is faced by many people. It can also affect internal body organs and can thus lead to pain in organs. Presence of Calcium, Potassium, Boron and Strontium is very essential for the body to prevent inflammation and availability of these minerals in the water and sand of Dead Sea thus helps to reduce joint inflammation to a great extent.

4. SLOWS DOWN SKIN AGING


Wrinkles are the most undesirable thing on the face and to prevent this people use a lot of cosmetic products and items. Dead Sea offers the free and effective treatment to deal with skin aging. Sulfur present in the Dead Sea helps to provide softness and smoothness to the skin. Sodium on the other hand heals the dryness of the skin. Lithium and Strontium treats skin problems and Manganese helps to form a healthy and glowing skin layer. Thus, the sand of Dead Sea when applied over the body not only slows down skin aging but also provide sanguine and florid skin.

3. REPAIR DAMAGED TISSUES


Phosphorus and Magnesium plays a vital role in repairing damaged tissues. Phosphorus is available in tissues and cells throughout the body and is thus needed for maintenance, growth and repairing of cells and tissues. Magnesium also helps in self repair of damaged tissues. Both of these minerals are found in abundance in Dead Sea. When one relaxes near the shore applying the sand of the Dead Sea or swims in the water of the Dead Sea, then these minerals are engrossed by the skin pores and help in the repair of the damaged tissues, thus adding up one more point to the health benefits of the Dead Sea..

2. HELPS TO STRENGTHEN THE BONES


Bones which are made up of Phosphorus, Calcium and Sodium are strengthened when the availability of these minerals is up to the mark in the human body. Deficiency of any of these minerals can lead to weakening or thinning of the bones and many other health problems. Dead Sea which is a pool of these minerals help to strengthen the bones by providing access to these minerals to the surface of the skin either through swimming or by applying sand paste to the body.

1. BOOST UP THE ENERGY


As we know that Phosphorus is utilized by living cells to produce energy and is a necessary component for the creation of new cells in the body and Magnesium on the other hand also helps in energy metabolism process and thus these two are essential components in producing energy. Being in contact with the water and sand of Dead Sea provides the body surface with these minerals and thus helps the body to boost up the energy level thereby making the person more energetic and healthy. 

That’s what we all want at the end of the day. To be well and feel our very best. If something natural can do this for you, I say got for it!!

These are my loves for skin care. People think that oil is bad for the skin. It's not. Oil cuts oil on the skin. There's a huge difference between therapeutic essential oils for the skin and crap oils for the skin. Just like there is a difference between organic products and crap high priced products. 

 The amazing thing is when you combine these products with micro needling. The benifits are truly amazing but with everything it's about consistency. We don't apply makeup once a week, we do it daily. That's the same for products and skin care treatments. You should go to your aesthetician once a month. I had cystic acne with scarring that destroyed my skin. My skin is unbelievably better now. I did treatments on my skin religiously and still do to get to this point. 

Micro-needing

Fight Wrinkle's like a Warrior


Good beauty afternoon. If you are a client of mine or a friend, you've heard me talk about FrownieS and Essential oils.

Everyone always wants to know what they could do for wrinkles on the face naturally. This what I use and suggest. I've been using this for many years. FrownieS and Frankincense oil from Doterra. 

Doterra essential oil's are amazing. No matter where I go, everyone will always see me with my Oil's. True oil's you can take orally, topically, diffuse them, or even put them in foods. Not all oil's are the same. 

A little cool info about Frank, this oil will literally blow your mind. What is it good for? It can actually reduce the appearance of sunspots and age spots. If you have uneven color on your skin, some whiteness in some areas, any spottiness or splotchiness, frankincense oil is the number one ingredient that can help even out skin tone and help get rid of sunspots and age spots.
Frankincense essential oil is a powerful astringent, meaning it helps protect skin cells. It can be used to help reduce acne blemishes, the appearance of large pores and wrinkles. The oil can be used anywhere where the skin becomes saggy such as the abdomen, jowls, or under the eyes. Mix six drops of oil to one ounce of an unscented oil like jojoba oil and apply it directly to the skin. Be sure to always do a small patch area though first to test for possible allergic reactions.
Frankincense has the ability to strengthen skin and improve its tone, elasticity, defense mechanisms against bacteria or blemishes, and appearance as someone ages. Studies have shown that it helps tone and lift skin, reduces appearance of scars and acne, and heals wounds. It can also be beneficial for fading of stretch marks, surgery scars or marks associated with pregnancy, and for healing dry or cracked skin. Are you ready to buy 10 bottles now? It's worth the money and Frank only has one ingredient, frankincense. There's no other preservatives or crap in it.

FrownieS have been around since the 1889. They paved the way in show Alfred Hitchcock TV series in the 1950's. Shout out to my girl, Jamie Liveluaghlove for getting this pic. 



 They are basically a flesh colored piece of construction paper. One side has a matte finish and the other side is the shiny side and when wet it becomes tacky like glue. 

You apply it to the desired areas on your skin at night after your lotions and potions. The tacky area gets pressed into the skin. Before you do that remember to pull that area nice and tight, then apply. At night the way we sleep can cause and reinforce wrinkles on the face, neck, and décolleté.  

I will always be honest with everyone and the realistic expectation's of product's. Frownie's  will not stop the sagging or loss of volume in your skin. You need Frank and Micro-needling needling for that, please free free to call me for a reservation and pricing. You also need fillers, I suggest Rachelle Depetro at the Skin Center. She is amazing and a true artist. 

Happy FrownieS and Frankincense Tuesday!

What's all the fuss about Detoxing?

What's all the fuss about Detoxing?

More and more evidence suggests that the toxins in our environment, foods, water, air, personal care, cleaning and beauty products, plastics, petrochemicals, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides hormones in meats, medicines, pharmaceuticals, dusts, dust mites, allergens, bacteria, viruses, pathogens, electromagnetic pollutions from our cellular phones, computers, TV's, microwaves, power lines etc. can have a very negative effect on our bodies and our health.


The presence of toxins in our body in any amount is not healthy or beneficial and the accumulation of  toxins is harmful and may lead to fatigue, general aches and pains, declining appearance, performance, decreased focus and mental sharpness, premature aging, allergies, and many other chronic diseases. Although it may seem harmless to many people, medical science is discovering that releasing and cleansing these toxins can have a great impact on health.

An ionic detox foot spa or a series of them can help your bodies natural cleansing and detoxification process. Feet soak in electromagnetically charged water and a half hour session may help recalibrate energy levels and detoxify the cells.

With the treatment I do on my client's, your body is completing an electrical circuit where a small current, too low for you to feel, is passed through your body stimulating and creating an energizing and refreshing effect. At the same time, a larger current is directed to the array in water. The array contains two sets of metal plates or rings, one set that acts as the anode and reduction at the cathode. As part of the process, gas is released. Bubbles will form depending on the amount of fats released from the body during the process. The treatment will infuse your body with negative ions to balance, relax, refresh, restore, and de-stress.

Have you ever wondered why you feel so good when hiking in the mountains, being close to a waterfall, or just walking on a beach?

Negative ions may explain! Negative ions are molecules which have more electrons then protons thus giving it a negative charge. These ions are created in nature as air molecules are separated due to sunlight, and moving air and water. Although the peace of being surrounded by nature is a reason enough to go outside, evidence shows that negative ions are released in these environments can aid your body's health and well being.

Pierce J. Howard, PhD, the director of research at the Center for Applied Cognitive Sciences in Charlotte, N.C. stated: "Generally speaking, negative ions increase the through of oxygen to the brain; resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy.

Thick Hair in your future

I have always wanted thick hair. The kind I can toss out the window and rescue someone with. Growing up, I heard that I have thin but a lot of it. That's great and all but I want some serious locks. 

My hair has always been long and I started wearing extensions. The clip in's, the semi permanent, and Halocouture hair. I recently cut my hair all off! Worst mistake of my life. I truly disliked it. It's growing thankfully. I love the stage it's in now because it's shoulder length and I can toss in some entensions when I want. I call my Halocouture my Cher wig. Love it. 

I'm always trying new natural ways to plump my locks. Found one I actually like and I feel works. Consistency is the key to life folks. Here's my goddess locks recipe:
2 Tablespoons of Cold Pressed Castor 
1 Organic Egg
1 Tablespoon Raw Honey

You can put this in a container and store in the fridge. Mix it together before letting in set in fridge. You should do this twice a week for 6 weeks. I separate my hair like I'm putting hair color on. Same method with this. I use my finger and rub into the scalp. 

You need to keep this on for 4 hours. I just go to sleep with it. I suggest laying a towel on your pillow and I have a vintage silk scarf I wrap around my head when I do this. In the morning you will look like a sea creature. It's not a pretty site but so worth it. 

I started noticing a difference on the third week but remember consistency. It's important to use all organic food items here because this is absorbing into your head. 

I hope you liked my little homemade goddesses locks recipe.

Sprouts and Power Greens

Good morning my fierce wellness Warriors or natural make up junkies. Today I wanted to give you two awesome products that can make a difference in your life. As you know I'm always on the search to find good products that actually are good and what they advertise is the truth. We know how hard that is to find. 
I attach this picture for what I had for breakfast. I absolutely am in love with a company called "The Sproutman". I get yoga salad or protein power salad. You're probably thinking well what the heck is that? Let me just share with you the goodness and power that are in these little packages. The yoga salad has organic alfalfa, organic arugula, organic red lentil, organic French lentil, organic peas. It's all organically grown fresh sprouts are grown with pure well water. You could put these sprouts on sandwiches, salads, tacos, soups, omelettes and basically anything. What does sprouting really do for a body and why is it so amazing for us. I debated breaking all of this down until I found someone that explained it so well that I'm going to attach the link to his website because he is on point. http://superhumancoach.com/benefits-of-sprouted-legumes-beans-and-lentils/

Secondly I always drink organic juice in the morning. The purpose of juicing is to get greens in with a minimal amount of fruit. Your base should be all greens and one fruit if any. It shouldn't be all fruit and a handful spinach. There's a variety of ways to get your greens in your diet when juicing. You can juice at home but then you have to worry about getting all organic produce and also understanding and have a knowledge of what type of juicer to get. I'm all for juicing at home if you have the time. I have a juicer but truthfully I'm lazy. I would rather just pay to have it done so I don't have to clean out the machine. I'm not saying that's the right way, that's Bethanys lazy girl away. You can go to a juice place but just make sure it's organic and not conventional veggies you're getting juiced. Lastly you could buy organic coldpressed juice. The Thing with this is you don't know how long it's been on the shelf and after a couple of days it does start to lose its nutrients. Always buy organic I can't stress that enough when it comes to juicing. I tell my health coaching clients that any type of greens is better than none when it comes to juicing. I don't care how you get it in your diet to start just get it in because I know at times it can be stressful. I have a lot of clients that asked me well what about regular juicing or coldpressed juicing. I'm a cold pressed girl because you're getting all the nutrients pressed out. Cold pressed is a slow and careful process of hydraulically extracting fruit and vegetable juice, you not only get the highest quality plant-based nutrition available, you also get the freshest tasting juice possible.

Cold press juicers use just enough pressure to extract the juice while preserving its vitamins, enzymes, trace minerals and overall nutrients up to five times more than any other juicer.

Because cold press juicing is so precise with its process of extraction, there is minimal air and heat so very little oxidation occurs. 

I bought Suja elements "Power Greens". Their company they use cold pressure also known as high pressure processing HPP, instead of high heat to extend shelf life and help maintain essential vitamins, minerals and enzymes. All of their products are certified organic, non-GMO and cold pressured, made sunny in San Diego. They also use locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Their product is gluten free dairy free soy free PBA free vegan no added sweeteners. The power greens that I buy only has 4 g of sugar per 8 ounces. That deserves A hoot and holler! 

I hope I educated you guys on some good things to add into your diet and spired you to make a change for the absolute better. Have a great and blessed day always remember be true to yourself! 


Peace in your heart,💗
