Why is cellulose important to our digestive health?

Why is cellulose important to our digestive health?

Great question!: Cellulose is an insoluble fiber, the kind that most of us don't eat enough of. It helps to move contents through the GI tract, helps the colon to do its work better, decreases chances for diverticulitis, and maybe also for several kinds of cancer. Can you tell I'm a fan??

Can current materials like fiberglass or cellulose cause mesothelioma?

Can current materials like fiberglass or cellulose cause mesothelioma?

No: Mesothelioma is usually caused by asbestos exposure. There are two types of asbestos involved, the first which causes lung cancer and the second is associated with mesothelioma. Since this is the only thing clearly associated with mesothelioma, all other cases of mesothelioma occur with no clear cause. Asbestos exposure can cause cancer decades after exposure.

Safe to take lorazepam w/ nature made magnesium supplement(mag ox, cellulose gel, croscarmellose sodium, mag stearate, silicon dioxide, stearic acid)?

Safe but not best Mg: It is totally safe but magnesium oxide is a very poorly-absorbed form of magnesium- it may work as a laxative but won't raise your magnesium levels! you would be far better off taking magnesium glycinate, taurate or citrate! see http://drcarolyndean.Com/magnesium_miracle/.

Besides allergen avoidance, tear replacement to help with dry eye, and good eye wear protection, patanol/pataday, optivar, bepreve, elestat, and Lastacaft (alcaftadine) are usual choices.

Why does my gum bleed ?

Why does my gum bleed ?

CauseYou don't floss: If you don't floss daily (never skipping days) your gums will continue to bleed. That is because plaque will build up and your gums will have an almost immediate inflammatory bleeding response to its "foreign" nature. Toothbrushing for good oral hygiene is a total myth! if it really worked, there would be no tooth decay or gum disease!

How can I stop gum chewing?

How can I stop gum chewing?

Bad oral habit: Gum chewing is not about the gum or its sweetness. It is about manifesting a compulsive behaviors through the mouth. Seek a consultation with a therapist who manages habits that are delirious to your health. Over the last 38 years, I have seen individuals who require extensive enamel reconstruction from this habit. Still it is better than smoking or chewing tobacco. Only slightly.
