Taking a Bite Out of Tooth Sensitivity

Our teeth get more sensitive to things like hot and cold foods as we age. That’s because, like it or not, your gums will recede as you grow older.

Here are some tips to combat that:

  • Use a “Sensitive Toothpaste”
  • Avoid Acidic Food – Like orange juice and tomatoes
  • Don’t Brush So Hard!
  • Avid “Whitening Toothpastes – They can be very abrasive

Good News & Bad News About Coffee

The World Health Organization has news about coffee.

First, the bad news. There is evidence to suggest that drinking any hot beverages at or above 140 degrees Fahrenheit may increase the risk of esophageal cancer.

Now, the good news, as long as it's below 140 degrees, there doesn't appear to be any cancer risk from drinking coffee.

Tips for Better Sleep

As we grow older, many of us begin experiencing trouble sleeping through the night. If you find yourself waking up in the dark multiple times during the night, try these “sleep hacks” to getting a good night’s rest:

  1. Stay in the Dark – If you do wake up, don’t turn on a light, check your cell phone, or get up to watch TV. This can mess up your internal clock and make you more likely to wake up at the same time the next night.
  2. Upgrade Your Bedding – Is your pillow worn out or uncomfortable? How long has it been since you replaced your mattress? New bedding may be your ticket to dreamland!
  3. Stick to a Schedule – Our internal clocks are not as adjustable as they once were. Try and keep your bed time and the time you rise the same – 7 days a week. (No matter how tempting it may be to sleep in on Saturday morning.)

Something to Help You “C” Better

A new study indicates that a diet rich in vitamin C can cut the risk of developing cataracts in people over 40 by 33%.

Researchers stress that the benefits does NOT come from popping vitamin C tablets, but from natural food sources, such as citrus fruit and dark green vegetables.

Bon appétit!
