The idea of this blog started when I realized that I often come across newsworthy items in my ongoing research on natural health that others might find interesting. Please feel free to comment!

Keep the Head Colds Away This Winter!

 Would you like to lower your chances of getting respiratory and ear infections, while preventing tooth decay and repairing tooth enamel?

 Xylitol is a natural sweetener which our own body manufactures daily. It can also be found in some fruits and vegetables. Because of its very low glycemic index, it’s considered safe for diabetics.

Xylitol has been proven to have some amazing health properties when consumed on a regular basis.

It reduces the germs that “stick” on to nasal tissue, thereby reducing the likelihood of upper respiratory and ear infections when taken regularly.

Eating refined sugar daily wreaks havoc on our immune system. By substituting sugar for xylitol, we reduce our chances of getting upper respiratory and ear infections by letting our immune system get on with the job, and not letting germs get hold inside our nasal passages.

It prevents tooth decay by helping prevent bacteria from sticking to teeth, which then “cancels out” the ensuing acid attack which leads to caries, or cavities.

By raising the pH in the mouth (and thereby making the environment more alkaline) calcium and phosphate salts in saliva move into those parts of enamel that are weak, causing these to harden again.

There is one caution with xylitol: It can be lethal for dogs (not so for cats). So, in the same way that you wouldn’t leave chocolate or other toxic substances around where your dog might find it, you must make sure to keep it well out of reach.
