Vicco Herbal Toothpaste is made from over twenty herbs. All these ingredients are carefully selected to give a good, fresh clean to your teeth.
By using healthy natural product we help our immune system in our body to stay strong.
Many brands of toothpaste found in the general supermarkets have ingredients we would prefer not to put in our body if we only knew what they were and what they could do to us.
The mouth is a very sensitive area. It is the first part of our system that absorbs our food and liquids. It also starts the absorption process of toothpaste, no matter what the ingredients.
I know I would always rather be safe than sorry by using a toothpaste that is both safe and natural. This toothpaste is not filled with ingredients that froth up in your mouth. What do bubbles do to clean your teeth?
Ingredients of Vicco Herbal Toothpaste
What is heat therapy? Essentially, it is the practice of using heat for pain relief and to improve one’s health. The benefits of heat therapy for the human body are providing relief to those suffering from arthritis, lower back pain, headaches, for sore backs and for simple relaxation.
Compared to much more invasive types of treatment, heat therapy can be a very effective and worthwhile choice that is a lot easier than some of the other options.
Listed below are few types of heat therapy:
Saunas have been around for a very long time and are one of the primary ways to experience a heat session. Traditionally, saunas were heated by pouring water over hot stones, thus creating steam.
More recently, modern saunas use infrared technology. Infrared saunas emit Far Infrared light (FIR) which heats up the air around us and our bodies directly. FIR saunas have found their use in many fields such as detoxification, different cardiovascular benefits like heart health and increased blood circulation. Spending time in an infrared sauna has also shown to help with the immune system.
All this is making saunas a popular choice for athletes as well as anyone else that is dealing with sore and aching muscles.
On top of that, it’s incredibly relaxing and there are countless health benefits to reduce your stress levels. You can read more on this subject here.
Hot Stone Therapy
This is a type of massage that involves placing warm stones on the body. Sometimes, they’ll use the stones as an extension of their own reach, other times the massage therapist will simply place the stones on various points of the patient’s body.
This treatment is relaxing, and great for the muscles and blood flow. The stones are commonly made from marble or basalt. Typically, the hot stone therapist will use several different stones; their size depending on the muscle group. Here are some more examples of hot stone therapies and how the treatment is performed.
A hydrocollator is a device that you can use to warm up cloth heating pads to place on your body. There are heating pads filled with bentonite and they are submerged in warm water to heat up, then removed and place into slip covers.
You’ll often find hydrocollators in spas and physical therapy clinics; however some people opt to have them in their homes as well. This particular method to warm and soothe the muscles may be somewhat less effective for overweight patients, as suggested by research in a 2009 study.
Final Thoughts on Heat Therapy
Heat therapy is available in numerous forms, the simplest being taking a warm bath, but that doesn’t compare to the professional treatments out there. Our bodies react to heat more than you might think and every day researchers are proving that this way of healing is sometimes even more efficient than standard medicine. And after all, treat yourself to a nice day at the spa, you deserve it.

The Sacral Chakra
The chakra are energy centres in our body. There are seven major energy centres located inside the body along the spine.
The Sacral chakra is the second chakra. The colour orange is attributed to this centre.
The Sacral centre affects the reproductive area of the body. It is centred in from the navel and about five centimetres (two inches) below the navel.
Orange crystals aid this area. Carnelian is a lovely deep orange crystal that benefits this area.
Carnelian, worn in the navel can have a beneficial effect on women if they are having period pain.
Orange can be found in some flowers, in the sunset, in bushfires and also in some food like oranges, carrots, pumpkin and sweet potato. To strengthen this area, eat these orange foods. Apricots and peaches and mango are fruits that can be eaten in this colour range. All these foods are gluten free foods.
Orange is a warm colour. It is made up of red and yellow. In art it is known as a complementary colour. The colour it compliments is blue. Blue is the colour of the Throat chakra. The throat chakra and the Sacral chakra are connected.
Burnt orange or terracotta is sometimes worn by women in winter. This makes sense as it is a warming colour. Apricot is the pastel shade of orange.
This colour flower can also be found in the garden. An old fashioned flower is the nasturtium. Its bright orange flowers bring life to the garden bed. Other orange flowers are strelitzia, Iceland poppies, knifophia, arctosis and geum. Having these in your garden is a great way to introduce the colour into your life. Plants with orange flowers are usually very hardy and do well in the heat.
Think about where this colour fits into your life.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) can have very unpleasant symptoms.
Does your tummy feel like this some days?
Symptoms of IBS
Burping, bloated midriff, rumbling, pain, lots of most embarrassing wind, lots of bowel movements, diarrhoea, exhaustion, and yes, EXHAUSTION.
Dr Sue Shepherd has been working on diet to help people affected by IBS. She has discovered there are different, natural sugars in may foods. She has discovered that if you do not have the necessary bacteria in your bowel to digest these foods then you get the symptoms we have just talked about.
After lots of testing, she has found there are groups of foods containing these sugars. So if you cannot tolerate some foods in the group you most likely will not be able to tolerate other members of the group.
Just to make things a bit more complicated, some foods contain more than one of these sugars so the food belongs in two no-no groups for you. Things are a bit complicated while you are getting used of your new way of eating. However the extra energy you will have and the lack of pain and the lack of wind and the ......
So the list goes on.
The new diet is called FODMAPS, the initials of the different sugars. You will need to find a dietitian to help you work through this if you have lots of problems.
At the start you will have to go on an elimination diet to rid your body of the toxins it has built up. This diet will last from six weeks to six months depending on your state of health. You need to be strong again before you test out the foods of the different groups. This is done in a very orderly fashion. This is why you need the help of a dietitian.
Some of the highly respected health practitioners from hundreds of years ago all said that food can be your medicine. By elimination foods that disagree with you, the food you eat can be your medicine. It will make you strong and well.
Gluten Free Stores
I just found another Gluten Free store. These are starting to pop up here and there as more and more people find they are healthier by not eating any form of gluten. Many are also finding benefits by staying away from milk.
This store is in Keilor East, Melbourne, Australia. They also have a website, pictured above.
There is another gluten free store in the main street in Werribee, Victoria. They also have a website.
New Research into Gluten and Milk
Datis Kharrazian, DHSc, DC, MS, practitioner and researcher and lecturer into thyroid and brain problems has just been involved in a study of 400 healthy people trying to determine if gluten or dairy products affected 'healthy' people as well as those already diagnosed to have problems with these foods. It was found that healthy people are also affected by gluten and dairy products.
Being a teacher specializing in the lower three grades of primary school, I have seen how some children are just in a fog. They cannot understand the basics of maths or spelling, no matter how you encourage them. I would like parents to give their children a better chance at school by removing gluten and dairy products from their life. It can be done.
People of any age can benefit by removing wheaten products and rye products and any other foods containing gluten. They can also benefit by removing dairy milk and all products containing milk from their diet. Give it a try and see if you get results.
I would be pleased if would me know.
