6 home remedies for white teeth

Everyone wishes white and healthy teeth, but not everyone dares to appeal to various chemical treatments or aggressive tooth whitening products. There are a few tricks you can use to neutralize this unwanted effect on teeth and help you have whiter teeth. Simple tricks, quick remedies that you can prepare yourself at home, but do NOT REMOVE visits to your dentist, which should be done regularly, and its recommendations.

So here are the 6 home remedies for white teeth:

Tea tree oil for a pleasant respiration

Tea tree oil has gained its reputation for effective antiseptic in the fight against infections, but its uses are extremely varied. For a pleasant breath and effective cleaning of your teeth, dizova 5 drops of essential tea tree oil into half a glass of water and rinse your mouth with this mixture every day after you brush your teeth. To enhance the effect, clean your teeth directly with this oil once or twice a week.

Strawberry massage

Take a strawberry (or two) and crush it with a spoon in a small pot. Then mix it with the finest salt (if you could grind it, it would be great), put the mix on the toothbrush and massage your teeth with delicate, then rinse out of abundance. In order not to affect your enamel, use this cleaning method once every two, three weeks.

Coconut oil miracle

Among the countless uses of coconut oil are tooth whitening in the easiest way. Apply a little coconut oil on your teeth before brushing them, let it work for 15-20 minutes, then use your toothpaste to clean them. Repeat the scheme twice a week and within a few months you will notice the first differences.

Use banana peel

Yes, that’s right! The banana peel, which we all hurry to throw in the basket, is effective when it comes to tooth whitening. Massage your teeth with the inside of the shell, then brush with toothpaste and rinse out of abundance!

Lemon mouthwash

This DIY mouthwash will gradually help your teeth become whiter, while your breath will be getting fresh. Mix lemon juice and salt and use the solution to rinse your mouth after brushing your teeth. Call this method twice a week, but try to avoid it if you have inflammations or infections in the mouth.

The green solution: aloe vera

To get a white smile from Hollywood, use freshly squeezed juice of aloe vera or use an aloe vera gel. Apply on teeth, massage with toothbrush, and then rinse with water. After a few weeks, your teeth will shine!

Do not forget: your teeth’s health is extremely important and, as usual, prevention is always a better option than treating. Correct hygiene (brushing two or three times a day, using mouthwash and dental floss) keeps your teeth healthy, but there are other factors that can influence how your teeth look like (coffee, cigarettes, alcohol and many other foods ), and their effects are often inevitable.

Remedies from grandmother: White and beautiful teeth with pantry products

A highly used and effective remedy is lemon. Once a week cut a thick slice of lemon and rub the toothbrush in it. Then rinse your mouth thoroughly. Repeat the process for at least 5 minutes. If you have severe pain, go to your dentist to see if you have oral health problems. After applying lemon, wash thoroughly to remove citric acid, which can attack the tooth enamel. You can even use lemon juice to rinse teeth. Add 1/3 lemon juice and 2/3 water. This method can be used daily in the morning.

Salt, sodium bicarbonate and vinegar.

Another well-known remedy is sodium bicarbonate. This white powder is only used once a week, after normal evening brushing.

Even if they’re a little expensive now, you can also use strawberries to whiten your teeth and refresh your breath. Make a paste of strawberry and sodium bicarbonate to rub your teeth once a week.
Rub your teeth with orange or lemon peel, breed and dry. The bark can also be mixed with basil or sage leaves. It’s a slow whitening process, but with very good results. After rubbing your teeth, wash your teeth normally. After a few months you will see the results.

Salt is most commonly used for teeth whitening. You can use the kitchen salt, simply sprinkling it on the toothpaste on the brush, both in the morning and in the evening. At the same time, you can mix the salt with some crushed coal and then massage your teeth with this dust. The solution can irritate the gum. Take care!

Even if it seems stranger, vinegar is also a good remedy. Mix apple vinegar with a little salt and half a teaspoon of baking powder. Massage your teeth with a brush soaked in the paste and rinse thoroughly with water.

The apple vinegar combination with olive oil is also good. Mix in a bowl a spoonful of extra virgin olive oil and a teaspoon of apple vinegar. Afterwards, soften the brush in this combination and wash your teeth. Do not use the method too often, because excess vinegar can affect the tooth enamel.

Other household solutions

Hydrogen peroxide bleaches teeth. Rinse a few times a month, but not more often. If you want to use it several times, dilute it with water, rinse your mouth for 1 minute, then rinse thoroughly with water.

Another beneficial combination is obtained from half a tablespoon of sodium bicarbonate, a salt peak and a drop of essential mint oil. Brush your teeth with this mixture. The sodium bicarbonate particles will act as a grinder on the surface of the teeth and will clean them in depth. In addition, in combination with water, this blend will reduce any enamel stains.

Another natural remedy is to clean the teeth with hard ash. This helps to teeth whitening because it contains potassium hydroxide, which acts as a whitening agent. But it is not recommended in the long run because potassium damages the tooth enamel.

Coal gives brilliance to teeth

Coal is very good in whitening teeth that have lost their shine. It is an old method, especially used in rural areas. Effects only appear if it is applied for a longer period of time. How are you doing? Slowly rub your teeth for 30 seconds to one minute with coal ash, rinse with water and then wash your teeth with the brush as you usually do. There is also the powdery form of coal, which you can find in pharmacies.

Home remedies against sunburns

In the case of prolonged exposure to the sun without being protected by a sunscreen cream, but also because of the administration of photosensitizing drugs or in pregnancy, pigment spots may appear on the skin.

Today we offer you some natural dishes that you can easily prepare and apply at home.

Homogenize a spoonful of turmeric powder with a little grapefruit juice until you get a paste. Apply this paste on the clean face and let it work until it is completely dry. Remove with lukewarm water.
Apply cold pressed seed oil to clean skin. It can successfully replace the evening cream, being also a good moisturizer for your skin. It is also recommended for dermatitis, aging skin, psoriasis, scars left by acne.
Homogenize a teaspoon of cosmetic clay with 1-2 drops of lemon juice and crushed green parsley as smooth as possible. Apply on clean skin and let it work for 30 minutes. Remove with lukewarm water.
Crush two green yarry as finely as possible, add two drops of lemon juice (optional) and put a teaspoon of this mixture into a sterile, double-woven gauze. Attach the ends with a thread and buffer the skin. When the film is dry, buff it again. Repeat for half an hour, then rinse the skin with lukewarm water.
Apply one of the treatments mentioned above daily.

The treatment is lasting, depending on the age of the stains and their extent, so argue with much patience.

Also, to prevent the appearance of new stains and accentuate the old ones, use a SPF 50+ cream every day, regardless of the season.

What you have to do to annihilate the negative energies in your home. Master Feng Shui teaches you!

Feng Shui is a 6,000-year-old science that deals with the layout of the space we live in from the energy point of view. Thus, in addition to the energies that change every 20 years and which only a specialist can calculate, there are also annual energies that can also influence our lives.
“The most affected area of ​​a home, city, country, continent will be the northern area, because there will come the energy of obstacles, misery, that energy meant to block our actions. At the same time, if we are sleeping in the northern area of ​​the house or have an entry in this cardinal direction, the more we can be influenced. The Feng Shui remedy for annihilation of obstacle energy is putting a water and salt bowl in the north of the house. This water will change every week. Also, the metal (metal objects) placed in this area will also repair the energy of the obstacles.
In the west of the house this year will attack the energy of the disease and to be annihilated, we also have to put a saltwater pot or metal objects on the west.
In the eastern area of ​​the house will come the energy of legal problems, problems with papers, and problems related to the oral cavity, eg problems with teething, recurrent herpes, we can be exposed to gossip, envy. To remedy this, we need to add wood elements to the eastern area of ​​the house. Traditionally, bamboos are used in water and in transparent glass, not in the ground and not in the pebbles. We have to put in the eastern zone 1, 3, 4 or 11 bambuşi, the power increasing according to their number. It also pointed out that bamboo, contrary to what is believed, are not lucky plants, but are used in Feng Shui just because they represent the wood element and are very easy to maintain.
In the Southwest, there is a negative energy that can bring cold breathing problems and problems in the head area, as well as legal issues. The remedies wood element and the element is water: wood or plant object put in the water (for example, 3, 4 or 11 bamboo transparent water vessel), objects black, blue, green, turquoise. They are placed in the southwestern area of ​​the house.”

Home Remedies for Common Problems

Summer is the season of insect bites and sunburn. To treat them, you can go to the classical treatments in the pharmacy, or try the natural cures you usually find in the kitchen. Here’s what they are!
Banana bark for stinging
You are the favorite of the nuns and do not go anywhere without an anti-inflammatory cream. To reduce the inflammation and relieve itching, the banana peel is wondrous. Wash the prickle with water and soap and gently massage it with the inside of a banana peel for five minutes. Do not delete the debris, but let them act in depth so the sting will disappear faster.
Vinegar softens sunburns
You did not even realize when you burned, but now it’s unbearable. For a faster cure, vinegar helps you because it contains acetic acid, a basic aspirin component with properties in reducing inflammation and relieving asthma. Embroider a towel with water and apple vinegar and apply it to the affected areas until it dries. Repeat this treatment until the redness is removed.
Aloe vera fixes makeup
High temperatures are a fire test for makeup resistance, which in most cases crashes. Applied before makeup, aloe vera gel reduces sebum production and allows makeup to remain intact for a long time. In addition, it has anti-microbial properties that help treat acne.

Ex-judge who brutally assaulted his wife in 2014 is arrested after she’s found dead

A former Ohio judge and state lawmaker who went to prison for brutally assaulting his wife in 2014 was taken into custody after she was found dead, authorities said.

The ex-judge, Lance Mason, was hired as Cleveland’s minority business administrator after being released from prison but was fired Saturday when he was arrested, NBC affiliate WKYC reported.

Aisha FraserShaker Heights Teachers’ Association / via Facebook
Details of the death of Mason’s estranged wife, Aisha Fraser, weren’t immediately available, but police in Shaker Heights, Ohio, said in a statement that is was a “terrible tragedy.”

It also wasn’t clear what charges Mason may face. The Shaker Heights Police Department, which said in a brief statement that Mason was taken into custody after an initial investigation, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to court documents, Mason — who had also served as a state representative and state senator — got into an argument with Fraser on Aug. 2, 2014, while returning from a relative’s funeral.

With their six-year-old and four-year-old children in the vehicle, Mason repeatedly struck Fraser in the head, bit her face and slammed her head against the dashboard, arm rest and passenger window, the documents say.

After trying to escape, Fraser fell to the ground, where Mason continued to strike her, the documents say, adding that he then got back in the vehicle and drove away, leaving Fraser there.

Fraser filed for divorce, but court records show that process wasn’t finalized, Cleveland.com reported.

Mason was sentenced to 24 months behind bars for the assault and served nine, according to the documents and WKYC. He was indefinitely suspended from practicing law, according to court documents.

The station reported last year that Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, may have helped Mason secure a job as Cleveland’s minority business administrator, though the congresswoman denied the report, saying she didn’t urge Mayor Frank Jackson to hire him.

The mayor’s spokesman, Dan Williams, also denied the claim.

Williams did not respond to a request for comment about Mason’s reported firing, but WKYC reported that that Jackson sent his “deepest condolences to the family of Ms. Aisha Fraser, especially to her children.”

Fraser had been a teacher for two decades and taught sixth grade at a local elementary school at the time of her death, the station reported. In a statement to WKYC, an uncle said she would be missed by all, adding: “Heaven just a got a magnificent angel.”

Fla. attorney general sues Walgreens, CVS in sale of opioids

Nov. 17 (UPI) — Florida’s attorney general is suing the two largest drugstore companies in the United States — CVS and Walgreens — alleging they are contributing to the state and national opioid crisis.

In a press release Friday, Pam Bondi said the two companies were being added to an existing lawsuit filed on May 15 against Purdue Pharma, which makes OxyContin, and several other manufacturers.

Bondi, who is departing as the state’s attorney general and has been mentioned for the top post in the U.S. Justice Department, said CVS and Walgreens are overselling painkillers and not being diligent enough with stopping illegal sales.

“We will continue to pursue those companies that played a role in creating the opioid crisis,” Bondi said. “Thousands of Floridians have suffered as a result of the actions of the defendants.”

The two companies failed to stop suspicious orders of opioids they received, according to Bondi.

“Opioid use has had tragic consequences for communities scross Florida, and the State has been forced to expend enormous sums as a result of the opioid crisis,” according to the 123-page amended complaint. “The crisis has a cause: Defendants cooperated to sell and ship ever-increasing quantities of opioids into Florida.”

In the state, Walgreens operates 820 stores and CVS has 754 stores.

The complaint noted Walgreens sold 2.2 million tablets to a single Walgreens’ pharmacy in tiny Hudson, “a roughly six-month supply for each of its 12,000 residents.”

CVS is accused of selling more than 700 million opioid dosages between 2006 and 2014 in the state in the complaint.

CVS said in a statement to The Hill: “We are committed to the highest standards of ethics and business practices, including complying with all federal and state laws governing the dispensing of controlled substance prescriptions, and CVS is dedicated to helping reduce prescription drug abuse and diversion. We also have stringent policies, procedures and tools to help ensure that our pharmacists properly exercise their professional responsibility to evaluate controlled substance prescriptions before filling them.”

Last year, CVS announced it will limit all opioid prescriptions to a seven-day supply, becoming the first major retail chain.

Walgreens declined to comment but on its website it states: “Help us fight prescription drug addiction. Together, we can stop an epidemic.” It says the pharmacist “is your best source of information” about drug usage.

Common opioids include Fentanyl, hydrocodone, Vicodin, Demerol, Methadone, morphine, oxycodone, Oxycontin and Percocet.

The Biggest, Richest Cities Won Amazon, and Everything Else. What Now for the Rest?

Amazon’s decision to open secondary headquarters in New York and near Washington sends a clear message: There is no Bezos ex Machina on the way for struggling cities, no single big gift from the heavens that will change everything. Instead, we’re living in a world where a small number of superstar companies choose to locate in a handful of superstar cities where they have the best chance of recruiting superstar employees. But what’s the economic future for a Hartford or Akron or Tulsa or the countless smaller towns and rural areas that didn’t get so much as a serious look from Amazon? Some promising answers are bubbling up, although there may not be a single plan that all the people who study these issues can agree upon. A new paper by Clara Hendrickson, Mark Muro and Bill Galston at the Brookings Institution aims to summarize the facts about these regional divides, as well as how policy contributes to them and how it could help reduce them. They argue for heavy investment in digital skills, even in areas without a large existing high-tech sector. They seek new channels to ensure that businesses in struggling areas have access to capital, including small-business lending from banks and venture capital for start-ups. Parts of rural America lack fast broadband internet, a big disadvantage that the authors want to see addressed. They urge heavy federal investment in 10 or so “growth pole” midsize cities that are close to struggling smaller towns and can serve as economic drivers. And finally, they suggest more federal support for people who want to move to greater economic opportunity — a countermeasure for one of the more surprising trends of the last generation, a decline in Americans’ mobility in pursuit of better jobs. The authors also point out things they think haven’t worked in reducing regional inequality. Using tax incentives to try to poach companies from elsewhere, for example, tends to weaken communities’ tax bases, while any growth benefits are zero sum, at least in economywide terms. The authors are similarly skeptical of large-scale infrastructure projects, arguing that such efforts in Europe, called “cohesion policy,” have tended to create nice roads and bridges in remote, poorer areas, while doing little to help incomes and employment rise in those areas over time. “What’s increasingly clear after the 2016 election is that the forces that have been really good for the economy in the aggregate, like globalization and technological change, create local shocks that are extremely powerful,” Ms. Hendrickson said. Their work is only the latest in efforts to wrestle with potential policy answers. In one of a series of papers published by the Hamilton Project, David Neumark of the University of California, Irvine, described a plan in which the federal government could subsidize the wages of newly hired workers in extremely poor areas. The subsidies would be 100 percent at first before tapering off — in hope of pulling more people into the labor force so they can develop skills that will allow them to earn a nonsubsidized wage. In another, Tracy Gordon of the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center argued for rejiggering the formulas to set federal grants related to Medicaid, highway funding and other infrastructure spending so as to better reflect the economic conditions in different places. And the economists E. Jason Baron, Shawn Kantor and Alexander Whalley argued for expansion of a program meant to ensure that innovations developed at universities are spread to nearby employers. Steve Case, whose venture capital firm Revolution has worked to advance entrepreneurship outside the big coastal tech hubs, said, “With the Amazon second headquarters, if the result isn’t what people may have wanted, it could still help jump-start a discussion around regional innovation that could lead to better results down the road. “I’m just eager for it to move into action so there’s less of a feeling of being left behind and more optimism about the future.” Mr. Case, who calls his effort “Rise of the Rest,” focuses on the funding dimension of entrepreneurship, and is seeking to encourage the big venture capital firms in Silicon Valley to explore opportunities in cities like Nashville and Columbus, Ohio. He wants to encourage the growth of homegrown regional firms and networks of angel investors who might spur the next generation of companies in smaller cities. At the Economic Innovation Group, a tech industry-backed research outfit, the ideas veer more toward getting people the training and education they need. “We have to leverage universities better,” said John Lettieri, the group’s president. “How do we make them healthy, how do we upgrade the ones that need upgrading, make them more research focused?” He also mentions an overhauled immigration policy to help attract more people with advanced skills, especially to struggling regions, and changes to labor laws such as banning the “noncompete” clauses that make it hard for people to switch jobs. Reading the various academic papers, think-tank policy briefs and business pitches makes it clear there’s no conventional wisdom on how to address these issues. But there are a range of possibilities for a politician to choose from in shaping an agenda. Even as Washington prepares for divided government, regional development is one area where ideological lines are not calcified. There may be some room for deal making, as with the Jobs Act, aimed at spurring small business, that was passed by a Republican Congress and signed by President Obama. Even if that doesn’t turn out to be the case, candidates for the presidency in 2020 have a huge political opportunity to pull together a policy approach that sends a message that the whole country can enjoy the benefits of prosperity, not just a handful of rich regions. For the people most in the thick of the research on the issue, there’s a sense of urgency — but also a feeling of modesty in facing this complex challenge. “While we may not know the complete and perfect solutions,” said Mr. Muro of Brookings, “we do know that we need to get started with the experiments.”

Is Law The Most Trending Thing Now?

It has been over five years since the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin and black lives still do not seem to matter to America. Last week, in a continuation of predictable, unnecessary and fatal use of force against black people, 26-year old security guard Jemel Roberson was killed by police after himself stopping a shooting in a bar. What is as clockwork as the killings themselves was the attempt to obfuscate the details in order to relieve the officers of responsibility. It is troubling that stories like Roberson’s are par for the course, commonplace incidents. White society, generally believing itself to be innocent or off the hook in race conversations, has developed strategies and defense mechanisms to keep itself from reckoning with the constant terror against our lives. When even a more progressive white person is challenged about systemic or individual racism, the commonplace response is usually to capsize into fragility, protecting the intentions of white people over the impact on people of color. We have yet to find the limit of mistreatment and violence that will cause the country at large to collectively acknowledge the value of our lives. What has become clear in this shooting and every other shooting since the initiation of the movement in 2013 is that no amount of death changes the collective (majority white) view of black people as disposable objects. Over the years of this civil rights movement, we have yet to find the level of mistreatment and violence that will cause white people, law enforcement and the country at large to collectively acknowledge the value of our lives. People of color and white folks have almost entirely divergent ideas about how race and racism play out. A quick look at the voting trends from the midterm elections solidifies the gap in political priorities. People of color, seeing and calling out patterns of racial violence, particularly over the last five years, are refining a sense of the systemic and institutional nature of oppression. In contrast, many white people remain confident that racism is an unfortunate psychological disposition or antiquated ideological bias, something from the past that doesn’t affect any of us now. Every day, white people see themselves as free of prejudice while simultaneously supporting and benefiting from systems that negatively impact people of color. If one isn’t explicitly racist, it is not racism, with white people continuing to value their intentions or feelings over the lived experiences of people of color. The constant stream of explicitly racist violence against black bodies sheds a light on how wrong they are about modern race relations, but they refuse to see it or else they respond callously and call it compassion. Karl Marx said “religion is the opiate of the people,” but in 21st-century U.S. culture, compassion fatigue is. The violence against black people, particularly in the form of police brutality, has become so commonplace that not only are activists losing the capacity to resist well but it seems even the most liberal of white Americans are losing the ability to care. After black people die or are systematically killed and their killers acquitted, people post “thoughts and prayers” sentiments and seem down for the cause, as though their platitudes can actually create social change. The frequency of violence and the failure of the justice system to show up on behalf of black people create the context for this normalization and subsequent hopelessness. Black lives mattering to black people is important but it is only one part of the journey toward liberation and equality. Even with the murder of Botham Jean, the Dallas Police Department has turned the case into an issue of police being overworked rather than holding the officer accountable. White people in positions of power feel forced to defend themselves and sacred institutions (church, police state, military, etc.) instead of seeing the flawed systems. They take criticism individualistically and defensively, and they watch each case as though it is one of experience rather than a pattern of learned racial bias and terror. Couching conversations about black lives in white “victimhood” means that even when white people do atrocious things, as in the case of Jean or even “Cornerstore Caroline,” the response can often equate to “why ruin someone’s life over an honest mistake?” when the question ought to be “how can we bring an end to racialized practices that create this precedent and situation in the first place?” At the end of the day, in this landscape, to be black is to live in a constant state of trauma and oppression. No one has to say that black lives do not matter for systems (and many individuals) to demonize and end our lives. We simply have to normalize the culture of violence around us, stay silent in the midst of others’ oppression, and assume the innocence of whiteness at all costs. For white people, believing and living as though black lives matter requires being moved with empathy toward action that interrupts internalized, institutional and interpersonal manifestations of racism. It requires getting educated, naming double standards, checking gut-level defensiveness and moving through fragility into activism alongside people of color who have lost our lives in movement after movement so that you would care enough to change and check some of your privilege at the door or voting booth. Since the onset of the Black Lives Matter movement, white supremacy has found more subversive ways of perpetuating violence and oppression against black bodies ― and it is not limited to events like the white nationalist march in Charlottesville or explicitly racialized language and incidents. Black lives mattering to black people is important but it is only one part of the journey toward liberation and equality. Black lives have to matter to white people in order to see systemic change and an end to white supremacy. Brandi Miller is a campus minister and justice program director from the Pacific Northwest.
