A Note From Randal

Hello Everyone,

We need your help to stop some legislation that is trying to stop the existing Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. This bill has helped us to maintain our health freedoms. Now they are at it again, Congress is trying to take out the most important parts of the present legislation. They are doing this by starting a new bill HR 3156.

This bill needs to be stopped. Please go their website and fill out their online form:

If passed, H.R. 3156 would also reduce the availability of herbs and dietary supplements.  Please do what you can to stop this awful possibility.

From here in Virginia, until next time, be in good health.

Randal

Health Tip

Aspirin is among the 200 or so medications that can cause hearing loss by damaging hearing hair cells and nerves that carry sounds to the brain.

You'll know if you're taking too much aspirin if your ears "ring," but the ringing stops when you stop taking aspirin.

Doctors C. Putterman and E. Ben-Chetret of the Hadassah University Hospital describe the case of a 60-year-old man with chronic heart disease who noticed that when his condition was ameliorated and his attention diverted from his heart problem, a persistent ringing in the ears became apparent.

Keeping Your Child’s Teeth Healthy

When should I schedule my child's first trip to the dentist? Should my 3-year-old be flossing? How do I know if my child needs braces? Many parents have a difficult time judging how much dental care their children need. They know they want to prevent cavities, but they don't always know the best way to do so.

When Should I Start Caring for My Child's Teeth?
Proper dental care begins even before a baby's first tooth appears. Remember that just because you can't see the teeth doesn't mean they aren't there. Teeth actually begin to form in the second trimester of pregnancy. At birth your baby has 20 primary teeth, some of which are fully developed in the jaw.

Running a damp washcloth over your baby's gums following feedings can prevent buildup of damaging bacteria. Once your child has a few teeth showing, you can brush them with a soft child's toothbrush or rub them with gauze at the end of the day.

Even babies can have problems with dental decay when parents do not practice good feeding habits at home. Putting your baby to sleep with a bottle

Bacteria Is Not a Bad Word

Some 500 to 1,000 kinds of bacteria reside in the large intestine of the gastrointestinal tract, and these gut microbes outnumber all the cells in your body, perhaps by as much as a factor of 10.

"What these bacteria do definitely makes a very significant contribution to our health—or lack thereof," says Mark Schell of the University of Georgia in Athens, who studies an intestinal microbe called Bifodobacterium longum.

Jeffrey I. Gordon of Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis says, "The density of this society is mind-boggling. Bacteria do an awful lot for us and with us. Most people's views of bacteria are of menacing, disease-promoting entities. Au contraire, I think that most of our encounters with bacteria are mutually beneficial, friendly, and part of our normal biology."

These good guys are known as probiotics. What do we do when we take antibiotics and kill off these good guys with the bad? Read more about probiotics being an antibiotic alternative:

Probiotics As An Antibiotic Alternative

What effect does all of the anti-bacterial sprays and wipes have on our health and the health of our children and pets? Do you find that your household has more sickness since you've begun using these? Are allergies becoming a chronic issue in your family?

The most common misconception about allergies is that they are caused by allergens. Although allergens may be the precipitating event that causes allergenic symptoms, the underlying problem is a compromised, weakened and out-of-balance immune system. What role do probiotics have with allergies?

Best Vegetarian Burritos
From Vegetarian Times
Serves 6

You can assemble these healthful treats as directed, wrap airtight in foil and freeze for up to three months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before heating as directed.

1 16-oz. can fat-free refried beans
1 3/4 cups medium to hot salsa
5 tsp. vegetable oil
1 14-oz. pkg. ground vegetarian "sausage"
3 large onions, chopped
2 large potatoes, diced (3 cups)
1/8 tsp. paprika
6 8- to 9-inch flour tortillas

Preheat oven to 425F. In small saucepan, stir together beans and 3/4 cup salsa. Cook, stirring occasionally, over very low heat just until warmed through.

Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, heat 2 1/2 tsp. oil over medium heat. Add "sausage" and cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up large pieces with fork, until browned, about 5 minutes. Transfer to bowl; set aside. Add remaining 2 1/2 tsp. oil to skillet and heat over medium heat. Add onions and cook, stirring often, until softened, about 4 minutes. Stir in potatoes, paprika and freshly ground pepper to taste. Cook, stirring often, until potatoes are almost tender, 17 to 20 minutes.

Return "sausage" to skillet and mix well. Cook until potatoes are tender, about 3 minutes more. Remove from heat.

Tear six large pieces of foil. Place tortillas flat on foil and thinly spread each with about 1/4 cup bean mixture. Spoon heaping 1/2 cup potato mixture down center of each tortilla. Top potato mixture with remaining salsa (use about 2 1/2 Tbs. salsa for each tortilla).

Fold bottom of each tortilla up to cover filling. Fold sides toward center, then roll up from bottom. Wrap in foil and bake until hot, about 10 minutes.

Minister Call – by Donna Jacob

A woman was trying hard to get the catsup to come out of the jar.

During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her four-year old daughter to answer the phone. "It's the minister, Mommy," the child said to her mother.

Then she added, "Mommy can't come to the phone right now. She's hitting the bottle."
