Guest Blog: Halitosis - Bad Breath Causes, Treatments, and Prevention

Sunday, 14 July 2019


What is Halitosis?

Chronic bad breath or halitosis refers to a persistent, unattractive odour that does not go away after brushing your teeth. Unlike other forms of bad breath such as “morning breath” and “garlic breath,” this condition will not go away with normal dental hygiene such as brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash. Halitosis requires visiting a dentist to determine the cause of your bad breath and to create a treatment plan to eliminate the condition. After tooth decay and gum disease, halitosis is the next common reason people seek dental care.

If your bad breath persists, you may need to visit your doctor to determine the underlying cause.

Bad breath affects 25% of the global population. Poor oral hygiene is the most common cause of chronic bad breath. The best treatment for bad breath is an effective at-home oral hygiene regimen.

Brushing your teeth only removes 25% of the bacteria in the mouth. The bacteria that cause halitosis largely reside on the tongue, and while also brushing the tongue can help, it will not eliminate the issue.

Bad Breath Causes

Anyone can get halitosis. It can be caused by several dental issues such as cavities, dirty dentures, cracked fillings, and gum disease. Dietary factors such as high protein/low carb diets, acidic foods, sweets, and a steady fare of onions and garlic can also adversely affect your breath.

Here are some not-so-obvious causes of bad breath:

(a) Dry Mouth

Dry mouth or xerostomia occurs when the saliva production in the mouth comes to a halt. This lack of production causes bad breath because saliva typically flushes away the bacteria and food particles responsible for bad breath. Coffee, alcohol, medication, and dehydration can all cause dry mouth.

(b) Diabetes

Diabetes fluctuates your blood-sugar levels, and the extra glucose on your teeth and gums increases bacteria that lead to halitosis, tooth decay, periodontal disease, and infections in the mouth. These infections can worsen diabetes and affect your overall health.

Halitosis can also be a direct result of your diet. It is important to be cognisant about what you are eating and drinking because it affects the conditions within your mouth.

When looking at your diet, consider the following things:

(c) Is Your Diet Balanced?

Aim to maintain a healthy, balanced diet with plenty of fruits and vegetables such as bell peppers, broccoli, and other crunchy high-fibre vegetables like celery. These vegetables help loosen food particles that are trapped in the teeth. Some crunchy fruits and vegetables like apples and carrots also remove plaque from the surface of your teeth as you are eating them.

(d) GERD

Gastroesophageal reflux disease can cause bad breath due to the reflux of stomach acids.

(e) Tobacco

Tobacco products have a strong odour, but also increase the likelihood of gum disease, which leads to bad breath.

Halitosis Treatment Options

Without knowing the definitive cause of your condition, finding proper treatment can be difficult. Visiting your dentist to discuss treatment is your best option to determine the cause of your bad breath and how to eliminate the problem.

Start by treating your bad breath at home, by brushing and flossing after every meal. The best way to prevent halitosis is to clean out all residue from the mouth after a meal. Remember to brush the tongue, too. The tongue holds most of the odour-causing bacteria responsible for causing halitosis or chronic bad breath.

Also, pay attention to the gum line. This area can house many bacteria and is sometimes ignored by those brushing their teeth. Brush this area thoroughly as the bacteria there is also responsible for halitosis.

7 Tips to Prevent Halitosis

1. Consume Less Sugar
Sugar allows the harmful bacteria in the mouth to multiply more quickly, which causes more severe infections and a higher risk of halitosis.

2. Brush At Least Twice Daily
Brush your teeth twice a day at least, with an antibacterial toothpaste. If you can, brush after each meal.
Couple this with flossing afterward and you should have little to no issues with your breath. Controlling plaque and bacteria build-up is the key to avoiding halitosis.

3. Avoid Tobacco Products
Tobacco irritates the gums, making it easier for a bacterial infection to take over the mouth and cause chronic bad breath.

4. Chew Sugar Free Gum
Chewing sugar free gum or sugarless candy can increase saliva production, which helps your mouth naturally clean itself throughout the day.

5. Replace Your Toothbrush Regularly
Every three months replace your toothbrush to ensure that you achieve a proper, adequate cleaning all year long.

6. Drink Plenty of Water
Water keeps you hydrated and washes away food debris.

7. Book Regular Teeth Cleanings
Professional cleanings with a dental hygienist can address any gum disease issues that may be causing your bad breath.

Conclusion

You can treat bad breath by determining first the underlining cause.

If treating it yourself does not help, seek professional advice from your local dentist. He or she can help you develop a tailored treatment plan to find out the root cause and take steps that can eliminate the problem.

Guest Blog: Tips to Battle Against Cavities

Sunday, 7 July 2019


How do cavities develop?

Cavities, commonly known as holes in our teeth, are actually severe tooth decay on the surface of our teeth. They develop over time and can actually be stopped or even reversed if detected early. Cavities can only be restored by experienced dental professionals using fillings, inlays or onlays, or crowns. The type of restoration will depend on the severity of the cavity.

Cavities develop when your teeth are exposed to acid. You expose your teeth to acid every time you eat or drink something containing sugar or starch. As these acids rest on your teeth, they attack the enamel, making the teeth weak and susceptible to damage. Affected teeth will also lose important minerals, which is easy to catch following the formation of small white spots on their surface.

How to prevent cavities?

To prevent cavities, it is essential to uphold impeccable dental hygiene habits. This includes brushing your teeth, flossing, and using mouthwash daily.

Visit your Dentist
Visiting your dentist biannually for dental check-ups can help you catch cavities before they require invasive or expensive treatment.

Brushing 
Brush your teeth at least twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening, with fluoride toothpaste. Dentists recommend brushing twice a day because although plaque is removed after brushing, it will reappear within a few short hours, generally following a meal.

You can use a manual or an electric toothbrush, but make sure you clean all the surfaces of your tooth – the front, back and top as well as your tongue which also harbours bacteria.

Floss
Floss all your teeth at least once a day. This removes any small, hard to reach food debris from in between your teeth. If left alone, this debris could start to decay, forming the bacteria that erode your enamel, ultimately leading to cavity formation.

Encourage children to floss using disposable dental floss picks which are available in cartoon or animal characters. Or have them stand with their back to you and their head tilted back so you can easily and quickly floss their teeth for them.

Use mouthwash
Many mouthwash and rinses on the market today are clinically proven to reduce the bacteria and plaque which lead to cavities. Many of them also remineralise and strengthen your teeth. Avoid using mouthwash immediately after brushing because you will rinse away the fluoride from the toothpaste.

Chew sugar-free gum
Chewing sugar-free gum following meal times was proven to reduce enamel-harming bacteria, as uncovered in a 2015 study. The fewer bacteria that are in the mouth, the smaller the chance that cavities will develop.

Sugar-free gums that contain xylitol prevent cavities by increasing saliva flow in your mouth. Saliva works to continuously rinse your mouth of crumbs and sugars that could attach to the surface of your teeth.

Any sugar-free gums proven to help prevent cavities will normally have marked on the label a seal of acceptance by various organisations, like the American Dental Association.

Healthy diet
Drinking lots of water and consuming foods high in vitamins and minerals will strengthen your teeth. Certain foods like cheese, vegetables, and fresh fruits are good for your enamel.

Stop smoking
Not only does smoking cause bad breath and staining, but it can also contribute to dental decay and infection.

Decay, and eventually cavities, develops as a consequence of smoking since your saliva production is reduced. When there is not enough saliva in your mouth, excess food particles will not be washed away resulting in tooth decay and cavities.

Use dental sealants
Dental sealants cover the chewing surface of your back teeth to prevent them from harmful bacteria and decay. Sealants are generally made of plastic and are so thin you won’t even notice they are there.

They are typically administered to children when their adult premolars and molars erupt. Since sealants cover the whole surface, it makes the tooth smoother and easier to clean with a toothbrush. There are effectively fewer nooks and crannies to house bacteria, which dramatically reduce the cavity risk.

Natural remedies to prevent cavities

study released in 2014 uncovered that toothpaste with high amounts of fluoride hardens enamel, effectively protecting your teeth from the development of the harmful bacteria which cause cavities.

Two natural remedies that may help prevent cavities are oil pulling and Vitamin D supplements.

Oil pulling is an ancient technique which involves swishing a small amount of pure sesame or coconut oil around your month. According to a 2009 study, oil pulling has the same bacteria and plaque-reducing powers that a standard mouth rinse offers. By reducing plaque, your teeth don’t have the same cavity risk.

Vitamin D has been proven to significantly reduce the development of cavities in various patients.

Final Thoughts

Incorporating at least some, preferably all, of these techniques, greatly reduce the risk of developing cavities. Your dentist can provide further advice and guidance to help you develop a personalised plan to minimise possible tooth decay.

Advice from a Wise Leader

Sunday, 30 June 2019


My very experienced friend shared her thoughts in a very meaningful speech.
Here, I like to share with you what she said:

The beauty of Shuang Hor Business is you don't just grow your wealth, but you grow friendship and you build genuine relationship with people based on trust, love and care. You might think what is so important about that, as compared to your own success, your own well-being and happiness. But as you grow older each year, you may come to the realisation that relationship is all that matters. What's the point of having all the wealth in the world when you have no true friends or family to share freely your deepest desires or challenges in life?

I notice that I start to have more group chats with my school friends, university mates etc as I grow older each year. Perhaps they also realise that they have lesser and lesser real friends that they can share their joys and difficulties with. One of the most precious gifts I gain in SH Business is a group of good friends, whom we grow on this journey together. I really cherish all of you a lot.

In 1997, the Asian financial crisis has turned out to be a life-turning opportunity for us. SH came to us when we were at the valleys in our lives, with almost nothing in our pocket and not knowing what to do and where to go. It came as a lifeboat not just to help us to stay afloat but as a lighthouse that gives us clear direction, hope and strength to march on.

In the blink of an eye, 20 years later, we are glad to have successfully built a little treasure island which allow us to have the peace of mind and freedom to live the life we want. With that, I want to thank everyone involved in making it possible for us today. They are the people involved in the running of SH company for coming out with excellent products and good support system, which gave us a lot of confidence that we are partnering with a reliable, established and caring company, and we can build a life-long career with them.

Our appreciation to all our uplines for their patience, guidance and mentorship all these while. That's why when you decide to do SH, you don't have to worry that nobody can guide you. If you really want to do the business, so long as you extend your hand, your hand will be held by your upline and so long as you are willing to learn, unlearn and relearn. I want to extend my gratitude to all of you for the trust given to us, the friendship and being a great team player. We had gone through a lot of happy and challenging moments together. Your commitment, growth and success have brought us so much joy and inspiration. Your happiness is indeed our happiness.

All of you whom we have learnt a lot through your experience sharing, as well as those people who had rejected us in our journey, have made us stronger and wiser.

Today, here, I believe there are friends who still have not decided whether to embark on SH journey, and many who are actively doing the business right now. You could be at the crossroads in your life, not knowing what to do, where to go or which direction to take or looking for a better opportunity to change your life for the better. If you are at this stage, allow me to invite you to ask yourself 3 very important questions, what we call classic SH questions:

(1) What do you really want 5-10 years from now?
(2) How do you really want to live your life if there is no limitation?
(3) If an angel suddenly appears in front of you to grant you whatever you want, what would you ask for?

If you can answer these simple yet deep questions honestly, then to do or not do SH becomes a very easy decision. If whatever you are doing currently is unable to bring you the result that you want in your life, then come and see if SH can give you what you are truly looking for. If it can, then just commit yourself wholeheartedly for 3-5 years. If not, look for another opportunity immediately. Don't waste your life as I believe you already know that this business can offer you financial, time and health freedom simultaneously as well as the freedom to be your true self, to design and live the life that you want, and the personal growth, genuine friendship and many more.

When you are walking the SH journey, sometimes you feel up, sometimes you feel down and sometimes you are not certain if you are on the right path. You often doubt yourself if you can make it. My little advice to you would be to reflect on these 2 questions:

(1) Am I doing the right things in SHB?
(2) Am I doing the right things the right way?

If  you do an honest reflection, ask yourself if you are following and carrying out all the activities taught by the SH education system diligently, or you pick and choose to do only the activities that you like and are comfortable with and avoid doing those things that scare you the most such as home meetings. Are you using your own methods that are completely outside the SH system and only you  know how to do it, yet it doesn't give you the results that you want. The easiest way to find out if you are doing the right things is to ask your uplines for honest feedback and see if you are following the footsteps of your successful uplines, or you are all alone by yourself in the business. If you feel that you are doing the right thing but still not getting the results that you want in terms of your network and income in a reasonable period, then as yourself the second question - Am I doing the right things the right way? Do you have any growth in terms of your knowledge, your skills and as a leader? Or they remain the same as the day you started your journey?

If your answers are positive, then this question could be the reason behind why you feel stuck - Do you become happier, more positive, confident, more at ease and kind with yourself and others? Or on the contrary, you become more stressed, more grumpy, negative and unhappy after you started your SH journey? If you and the people around you feel you become more unhappy, negative, stress, insincere, dishonest etc, then you are certainly not doing the right things although you seem to be doing the right things (i.e. improve in your knowledge and skills).

To me, personally, this is a very important point. To do well in SH, we must learn how to be happy, positive, light-hearted and enjoy the journey simply because we have explored and decided to commit ourselves in SHB. By right, we already know the direction and walking on the right path. Why aren't we happy but feel stressed instead? There's no reason for us not to be happy and celebrating our lives everyday, as every day and every step that we take is taking us closer to where we want to go. But if we become more depressed and competitive, insincere, greedy etc, then you must realise that you are not doing SH the right way, although you seem to be doing the right things. Because how you feel and your emotions determine your results in SHB.

Most of us have the tendency to think that we can only be grateful after we achieve our success in life. Therefore, we have the tendency to postpone our happiness to future. We give ourselves a lot of pressure, or become very impatient to get there as soon as possible, therefore forgetting that we can be happy and peaceful right here, right now, when we are walking on the journey itself. We don't have to wait until we become Diamond to be happy. In fact, you will not become a successful Diamond or achieve any real success if you are not happy and at peace, but always feeling stressed, exhausted, negative etc when you are on the journey itself. So please remember, success or happiness is not a destination, but in the journey itself. There is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So, happily, joyfully and lovingly carry out all the activities diligently and success is with you right now.

Believe you me, after 20 years in SH, I conclude that, besides hard work and commitment, the right attitude is still the key to success, especially the Three Cs that we should watch out for, as we tend to do it very often:

(1) Never Complain about the company, products, uplines, downlines, prospects, the weather, the SST or any other condition. I kept a very simple mind when I was walking the SH journey by telling myself if there are still people who are progressing in the business, and there are still people who are taking SH products, it tells me that the business is doable. It's all about me, don't blame other people and other factors. In other words, I don't entertain my own victim story.

(2) Never Compare with anyone or any other company. For better or worse, it is just our perception, which is wrong 95% of the time. Most of the time, comparison will only make us feel more depressed. If you must compare, make sure you know how to compare to make yourself feel positive, more inspired, more humble and grateful.

(c) Never Criticise or Condemn others and more importantly, yourself. Criticising others will only make us look small minded and reflect our inner insecurities. When we criticise and judge ourselves, it will only make us more depressed and sabotage our own self confidence. That is a violent act to ourselves.

Learn to be kind, be loving and more understanding with ourselves and others. Accept that no human being, including ourselves, are perfect. It is ok if we can't do it or can't achieve what others can achieve because each and every one of us has our own strengths and roles to play in this world. So don't be too harsh on ourselves. So long as you have given your best in that moment, just accept whatever outcome that life gives you.

Last but not least, don't be Greedy. We all know that it is important not to sell ourselves small, but if we get carried away to want to achieve more and more simply because of greed and pride, where we compromise our health, happiness and integrity during this pursuit, then although we may achieve some great titles and great wealth in SH, you will not have true happiness, peace and freedom.

So, dream big, as the sky is the limit. But live simply, happily and sincerely when you are walking on this journey. Have your goals set clearly, lay out your plans, take the actions diligently and persistently. Most important of all, do it joyfully and sincerely from your heart everyday as SH is not a conventional business which just gives you the conventional successes such as money, fame and power. But SH is a Path with Heart. Although it is a business, you have to do it not so much with your brain but from your heart. It is a business that allows you to open up your heart to connect with yourselves and with others, before you can touch and change the lives of yourself and others.

SH is a Path with Heart. It is our job to make every act become an act of love from our heart.
With that, I wish you a happy, joyful and fulfilling journey.

Bits & Bites #216 - Business: A Fair Marketing Plan and A Business With Integrity

Sunday, 23 June 2019

Please email askfuiping@gmail.com if you're looking for a Partner to do Shuang Hor Business.

Stoked
Shuang Hor is really a fair and reasonable company. It reminds you that there are 4 things you must give your time and priority to, before you do Shuang Hor business:

1) Country
Perform your duty as a good citizen. Do what is required by your country e.g. national service etc. If you don't care about the place you live in, you will have no country and you become an immigrant.

2) Religion
Fulfil your obligations according to your religious requirements.
However, in Shuang Hor teachings, do not discuss your views on religion and politics with your prospects as differing views will create disharmony.

3) Family
Spend time with your family. If your family members are also taking Shuang Hor products, then you can kill 2 birds with 1 stone - share with them what you learn in Shuang Hor when you spend time with them.

4) Existing job
If you are under employment, do not do Shuang Hor during your working hours. Be ethical and show integrity to the company you work for. But lunch hour is your time. After work is your time. Plan wisely and fill these hours up with meaningful activities instead of simply going home to watch television.

5) Shuang Hor
If you have decided to do Shuang Hor but cannot find the time, that means you cannot manage your time well. Let your experienced leaders guide.

---------------------------------------

Shuang Hor's marketing plan is very fair. No matter when you join the business you will still make money. You can earn more than the friend who introduces you and those who have already been in the business for longer than you. The marketing plan rewards hard work.
The marketing plan is reasonable because it gives the right percentage to the distributors and the company. It is a plan that is proven to work because it has been around for over 30 years.
It is also a source of income that can be passed down to your next of kin; your future generations can continue to benefit from your effort even after you pass on.

----------------------------------------

Shuang Hor's business philosophy is hinged on Honesty and Integrity. This company does not promise anything until and unless it can deliver. Whatever it announces will be achieved.
This is what I really like about this company, because in the business environment where every company is out to make the highest profit, it's easy to get unethical for the sake of making more sales. Shuang Hor strives to rise above that.

------------------------------------------

Shuang Hor's Marketing Plan has a few unique features which make it stands out above the marketing plans of many MLM companies:
(i) Distributors are not required to stock up. If fact, we are encouraged to only buy what is needed.
(ii) There is no monthly minimum purchase. We have the flexibility to buy whenever and however much we want.
(iii) The bonus reward is given at unlimited levels down. Certain companies stop the rewards after 6 levels.
(iv) All downlines are welcomed to come for uplines' meetings. Certain companies do not allow those downlines to attend meetings of uplines when these uplines do not benefit from those downlines anymore.

------------------------------------------

In a business where money makes money, you need a pool of money to even think of starting your business. In Shuang Hor business, you use effort to make money. Be patient as people take time to learn. Service them well and educate them on the goodness of Shuang Hor products. Even if they are no longer doing the business, people whom you have serviced well will continue to be loyal consumers.

Exclusive: Statins: How They Work on Cholesterol and Side Effects

Sunday, 9 June 2019


About 75-80% of the cholesterol in our body is produced by our own liver. Only 20-25% come from our food intake. The liver also produces triglycerides. If these readings are high, doctors will prescribe medicine. But if having high cholesterol level is such a bad thing, why does your body produce it in the first place?

Why does your liver produce so much cholesterol?

Because cholesterol is needed for many important functions in our body.

(i) It is an important building block for body tissues and cell membranes. It helps form the outer layer of cells.

(ii) It is needed to synthesise vitamin D. We need cholesterol in our skin cells to make vitamin D from sunlight. If you don't have sufficient vitamin D, the calcium consumed will not be absorbed and utilised by the body. Calcium may also become calcified, and arteries around the heart will be hardened.

(iii) It is needed for endocrine system (hormone production system). The ingredient to manufacture hormones is cholesterol. Imbalance of oestrogen and progesterone can cause cysts, fibroids and endometriosis. Cortisol hormones are produced by adrenal glands when one is stressed, to help relieve the stress. But over-production of cortisol create disruption to body eg. increased blood sugar level and digestive problems.

(iv) It is needed for nervous system. The brain stores up to 20% of total body cholesterol because it's needed to transmit messages. If you don't have sufficient cholesterol, the message transmission process slows down, leading to Alzheimer and Parkinson disease. Excess cholesterol blocks blood vessels and can increase the risk of stroke.

Exclusive: Anti-Diabetic Drugs: How They Work & Side Effects

Sunday, 2 June 2019

Many of us obediently swallow whatever medications that doctors prescribe - some do it out of ignorance and some out of great faith in their doctors. Most times, doctors do not explain the mechanisms behind the drugs they prescribe nor give solutions on how to prevent the side effects that always come with long-term consumption of medication.

In this post, we learn about drugs taken to treat high blood sugar problem. We learn how the drugs work, what are the categories, what are the mechanisms and what are the side effects.


The red blood cells in our body carry oxygen and nutrients to the whole body, including glucose, which is a source of energy. Carbohydrates are converted into glucose, which then flow in the bloodstream. Glucose needs to enter the RBC first before it can be utilised. For glucose to enter body cells, it needs a key, which is the insulin hormone produced by pancreas.

If the pancreas cannot produce sufficient insulin, there will be excessive glucose flowing in the bloodstream, resulting in high blood sugar reading. When the cells cannot receive glucose, they will starve.

Another reason for high blood sugar is the RBC receptor is not functioning well; it cannot recognise the insulin to open the door to welcome glucose to enter.

The normal fasting blood glucose level should not exceed 5.6 mmol/L.
Pre-diabetes level is in the range of 5.6 - 6.9 mmol/L.
A person is confirmed to be a diabetic if he has a reading in excess of 7 mmol/L.

Diabetes Complications

Diabetes itself is not life-threatening. It's the complications of high blood sugar that can be fatal.

1) Blindness
High blood sugar damages the retina and in the long run, can lead to blindness.

2) Dialysis / Kidney Failure
Excessive sugar in the blood over burdens the kidney.
Diabetics need the help of a machine to cleanse their blood because their kidney can no longer perform this function. When your eGFR reading is less than 15 mL/min/1.73m2, it means your kidney function has deteriorated substantially and doctors will advise you to do dialysis.

3) Liver Failure
Excessive sugar attracts a lot of bad bacteria. The liver has to work harder to perform the detox function and in the long-term, it becomes damaged.

4) Heart failure
When your blood is full of glucose, it would be very sticky and muddy. Your heart has to work extra hard to pump such blood and will lose its strength and ability in the long term.

5) Gangrene / Amputation
You can tell a lot about how healthy you are by looking at the condition of your legs. If your legs are strong, you can walk at a fast pace, there is no pain, your feet feel warm (good blood circulation) and you are able to stand for long periods without feeling tired - you are healthy and your kidney is healthy.

The blood of diabetic patients is very dirty. The feet are the furthest points from the heart. It is harder for the heart to pump blood to such a distance. As blood cannot reach there, their feet always feel cold. Less blood also means there are less RBCs and WBCs circulating there. When the virus / bacteria attack the cells and tissues in your feet, there would be fewer soldiers to fight them. As such, the infections are harder to heal. The wounds grow bigger when there are more and more virus / bacteria accumulating in the area, resulting in gangrene and eventually amputation.
