Revealing Causes and Prevention of Plaque

Keeping your teeth and gums clean is very important for one and all. As known, oral health has a significant role to play in your overall well-being. A poor dental hygiene can reflect in your physical health causing serious illness. To have healthy teeth and gums, you need to keep it away from bacterial infection. The root cause of such infections is plaque and tartar. Indeed, it is crucial to know about these harmful substances and the ways to prevent them successfully. Various dental clinics in Croydon offer professional cleaning methods to remove plaque and other harmful bacteria from the tooth surface. This blog is all about causes, prevention and treatment of plaque and tartar.

About Plaque:

It is a colorless, sticky and thin film of bacteria which keeps forming on the tooth surface and gumline. You need to remove it by proper flossing and brushing to keep your mouth clean and fresh. Plaque, if not removed, can turn into another thicker and harder substance – tartar. It is a form of plaque that sticks to the enamel and below the gum line.

Causes of Plaque:

After you have your meal, a lot of food particles remain stuck in between the teeth for a long time. There are bacteria in the mouth that attack on the food remains, especially carbohydrates and sugars producing harmful acids. The acids then target the tooth surface hampering the enamel. If these bacteria and acids are not removed on time, it results in the formation of more plaque and tartar. Tartar is an advanced form of plaque which makes it thicker and sticky adhering the tooth surface strongly.

You can ultimately lose a tooth inevitably, as a result of untreated gum disease.

  • Book regular appointments with a good dentist for professional cleaning and check-ups.

Thus, by adapting good oral habits, it is not that difficult to prevent plaque and keep your teeth and gums healthy.

April Showers Bring May Flowers: Ayurvedic Spring Tips

Lentil sprouts to top a soup or salad

Heavy, wet and muddy are how we would currently describe Connecticut!

According to Ayurveda, spring is called kapha season. Kapha literally means “to stick together.” It’s a muddy, wet and rainy time of year in nature, where the earth is holding onto more water. This is nature’s response to a long dry winter. As the Earth swells with new moisture, seeds begin to germinate, flowers bloom, and the trees begin to bud. 
The body, too, will hold onto more water during the spring! And we are filled with a new energy and desire to be active, such as our desire to spring clean our homes and cars! This swell of water can also congest the mucus membranes that line the respiratory and digestive tracts. As an antidote, nature provides a harvest of foods that are low in fat and thus do not congest the body.
This time of year is known in Ayurveda as nature’s perfect opportunity to cleanse and rejuvenate the body. As John Douillard writes, “Within our bodies, those winter microbes that are geared for keeping the body warm and digesting heavier foods are transitioning to spring microbes that have a new purpose – fat burning, natural weight loss, stable mood and renewed energy for the full year ahead.”
 Here are some spring tips to eat with the seasonal changes this spring:
  1. Avoid congestive foods, such as refined carbs like wheat, dairy, sugar and high-fat foods.
  2. Make 2/3 of your plate green veggies at each meal! At Passiflora we offer organic greens, a variety of sprouts and microgreens, plus green smoothies for you to enjoy at each meal.
  3. Split the remaining 1/3 of your plate between a protein and a healthy starch.
  4. Drink 6-8 glasses of water per day.
  5. Sip hot water throughout the day during allergy season.
  6. Vitamin C blocks the release of histamine from inflammatory cells. Get plenty of vitamin C – rich foods, such as citrus fruits (grapefruits are in season), papayas, broccoli, brussel sprouts, bell peppers and kale.
  7. Drink dandelion root tea: 2-3 cups daily during allergy season.

Ensuring the Good Health of Our Brains

On March 18 the Wellness & Nutrition Book Club met to discuss the book Grain Brain by neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter. One of the interesting aspects of this book is its focus on keeping our brains healthy. It is easier for us to know if our physical bodies are struggling as we can feel many dis-eases, but what about our brains? Our brains are more silent and not an area we commonly think very much about. Yet, we will all agree that healthy brains are absolutely critical to our quality of life!
Interesting takeaways from the discussion included:
  1. The healthy and necessary role of cholesterol in our brains! Dr. Perlmutter discusses the correlation between the increase of cholesterol-lowing prescriptions and the increase in brain disorders. He provides a scientific look at the role of cholesterol in our brain and why lowering our body’s ability to make cholesterol via statins may not be healthy for our brains.
  2. The relationship between increased glucose levels in the blood and Alzheimer’s Disease. Dr. Perlmutter goes so far as to call Alzheimer’s Diabetes Type 3 and shows a correlation between obesity levels and Alzheimer’s Disease in this country.
  3. Gluten-sensitivity and its relationship with a host of illnesses including autism, ADHD, depression and migraines. Gluten-sensitivity is currently a very popular topic and we had an interesting talk about the difference in modern grain versus traditionally sprouted, fermented grain as well as the potential “junk-food” additives in certain gluten-free substitutes.
  4. Neurogenesis and epigenetics, or our ability to alter the expression of our genes. Which is to say: perhaps we are not born with diseases, we can change our genes! This is a relatively new and exciting area of medical health. 
Sound interesting? It is! Join us for our next Book Club on May 20: The Blood Sugar Solution by Dr. Mark Hyman. Email us to reserve your spot. It’s free!

The Critical Role of Sleep

In these times of high anxiety, when every social media post or news article can invoke a feeling of not being grounded, there are both ancient and more recent learnings that can provide us with guidance, as we enter the cool Winter season.

Critical Role of Sleep
We all know that we feel better able to deal with the day-to-day stressors in life when we are well rested. The current scientific research supports that we need to get at least 8 hours of sleep for basic good health. For some, that is a very difficult goal to set, because of the push and pull of the daily to-do list. But consider, this is not a deficit we can pay back, and every waking hour goes better when we get this sleep.

It has been recently discovered that the brain has a drainage system, called a “glymphatic” system. This system is responsible for clearing out the “gunk” that might otherwise harm our brain. In preliminary research, this system, when it is not cleaned out via sleep, supports the development of beta amyloid,  the protein that can be a primary contributor to the development of Alzheimer’s. These proteins also have an affinity for the deep sleep centers. So, the less sleep we get the more “gunk” and the more “gunk” the less well we can sleep.

Dr. Matthew Walker, the Director of the Center for Human Sleep Science at the University of California Berkley and the author of new book, Why We Sleep: The New Science of Sleep and Dreams, provides guidance as to getting a good night’s sleep.  

·       Sleep in a completely darkened room: Photons of light can upset the circadian rhythms.

·       No caffeine or alcohol: Adenosine is a hormone which is important in signaling sleep to the brain. Caffeine interferes with this hormone. Alcohol disrupts the ability to get a deep night’s sleep.

·       The wisdom of Ayurveda provides guidance that it is best to be in bed in a quiet, dark, uncluttered bed room before 11 pm.This means: electronic devices put away around ten and the same pre-bedtime routine that works for you: calming tea (such as Passiflora’s Sanctuary blend), Passionflower solid extract in warm water, a soothing footbath or bath with Epsom salts, lavender essential oil on the feet, and/or yogic legs up the wall. Develop a consistent self-love night-time routine that works for you.

·       Sleep in a cool room

·      If you wake during the night, train your brain that your bed is for sleep. Get up and go to another room to read or meditate until you get sleepy. Avoid bright lights and electronic devices.

Ayurvedic Wisdom for the Winter Season
Ayurveda  (the ancient Indian “science of life”) provides guidance as to how to bring more balance, joy and vitality to life. In the season of windy-ness, lightness and sometimes dry-ness, the antidotes are warm, unctuous and soothing.

·       Remember to be gentle on yourself, such as: walks in the woods, restorative yoga at home (in child’s pose or legs up the wall at bedtime), an early morning breathing practice with “I am” on the inhale and “at peace” on the exhale. Put yourself and your peace on your to-do list!

·       Slow cooked soups and stews, roasted root vegetables and squashes and other naturally sweet, warm and soothing foods, eating slowly, in pleasant surroundings and company are the anti-dote to the season.  Check out our catering menu, if you would like to order our nourishing soups by the quart.

·       Ashwagandha is a Fall harvested root that allows you to have vitality and healthy focus during the day; and still allows you to sleep at night. The recommended dose is 500 mg twice a day. Some of our favorite brands are Banyan Botanicalsand Organic India.

·       A sesame oil self-massage before the shower (include some of your favorite essential oils, perhaps rose geranium or grapefruit in the am; and lavender or vetiver in the pm) is calming and soothing to the body and central nervous system.
