I Am No Longer Embarrassed over My Smile

meWhen I was younger, my mom was busy raising me and my three younger brothers on her own. She was working two jobs at any given time, and sometimes even three. She was so busy trying to keep us in a home that she did miss out on a few things like teaching us about proper oral hygiene. I do not hold that against her at all, but I knew that I was going to need to see a cosmetic dentist in Greenwood Village if I wanted to have a nice smile.
I was really embarrassed over my smile because my teeth were crooked and stained. I was brushing them two to three times a day once I realized I was in danger of maybe losing some of them, and I also used a rinse and floss. While that routine did save my teeth, it was too little too late … Read More

David & Goliath (Explored)

Due to health issues and my new job I wasn’t very active here on flickr lately. But finally found some time within my new job to head out for shooting winter trees. Just have to take care about copyright things now. I am the author of the image, but the copyright belongs to the media workshop I am working for 😉

These two trees sitting on top of a small hill I saw the first time back in last summer and was sure they will suit very well into a winter scenery. Winter hit us very late but then very hard with temps below -15C this year after a too warm start in january. I shoot these trees from several places, but this images seems to be the best from my view.

Iodine If You Don’t Know Where, What and Why, Prescribe Ye Then K and I (Old Medical Saying)

In clinical practice, the number of women easily identifiable as thyroid deficient has grown to epidemic proportions. Many have gone to their Doctors, have had the standard test; are re-assured they are fine, but are not. It seems the test is unreliable. Dr. David Brownstein in his book; “Iodine why you need it, why you can’t live without it”, quotes from a NHAES study showing iodine levels in the USA have dropped by 50% over the thirty years spanning from 1970 until 2000. Iodine plays a key role in thyroid health. More frighteningly he also points out low iodine levels in pregnant women have increased by 690%. Something is wrong, and we need to ask what!

In spite of massive spending on health care; money that mostly goes on pharmaceutical products, overall health is declining. True, acute disease has lessened significantly, but chronic illness has risen. Maybe, many of the … Read More
