Low-Cost Mammograms From St. Joseph’s Medical Center In Tracy, CA

St. Joseph’s Medical Center will be providing low-cost mammography screenings for women in Tracy, CA on Wednesday, January 12 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Safeway store located at 1801 W. 11th Street.

The mammograms are part of innovative program created to bring mammography services to women who have limited resources and may not otherwise have access to preventative health care.

Low-cost mammograms will be available for $80. Women enrolled in certain medical programs may be eligible for a free mammogram. The screenings are available by appointment to any woman with a physician’s referral.

The St. Joseph Mobile Mammography Unit is a full-service, self-contained mammography clinic on wheels equipped with state-of-the-art digital mammography technology and service. It is sponsored by such partners as the Safeway Foundation, Avon and Susan G. Komen Foundation.

To make an appointment, call 866-430-8222.

Early detection is one of the most important factors in the fight against breast cancer, and a mammogram, in combination with a yearly doctor’s exam and monthly breast self-exam, makes it easier than ever for early breast cancer detection and survival.

Most women should consult their physician for a screening mammogram after age 35 and then every year or so as advised by their doctor. Most doctors advise yearly mammograms for women over 40 and it is important to notify your doctor right away if you feel anything unusual in your breasts during the monthly self exam. Many lumps are nothing to worry about, but only a doctor can determine which are harmless and which require attention.

NutriSystem Weight Loss Program

I just started so the jury is still out. So far the food is descent. I went and picked up the 5 day kit at Walmart to try it out. It cost $45.00. That’s $9.00 a day and you get breakfast, lunch, dinner and 2 snacks; one in the morning and one on the evening. Not a bad deal being able to eat on roughly 10 bucks a day.

The first week was ROUGH. I was probably eating  at least 4,500 calories a day before starting this program. They recommend 1,500 calories a day for men and 1,200 for women. So it was a huge drop for me! I was a VERY tired and lethargic especially at the end of the day. Nearing the end of my second week, I am getting used to it and getting some of my old energy back.

To give them credit… I didn’t do the program exactly right. You are supposed to eat other “real” food thru-out the day, like fruits and vegetables, But I wanted to give it a bit of a boost the first couple weeks.

So if you just eat the food they give you (breakfast, lunch, dinner and 2 snacks; one in the morning and one on the evening. ) Here’s a rough breakdown on how many calories and what not you will get; but it depends on your meals.

Calories – 880
Protein – 42 grams
Carbs – 113
Fat – 33 grams
Fiber – 20 grams
Sodium – 985
Cholesterol – 100 mg
Saturated Fat – 18 Grams

The Walmart program just kind of reals ya in. If you want more variety you have to then order directly from them. The price per day goes up a bit, but not much maybe $2.00 – $3.00 per day. It depends on if you want to customize your meals, if you have any health problems and if you want to be able to talk to a dietician/nutritionist.

For the first month, I just let them pick and choose. I will def not be doing that again. Their are quite a few items I probably will not like. But it made it easy while I figure the program out. I chose the mid program, so I could customize, talk to people and get some health specific advice.

I was a bit confused with all this talk about extras, free foods, vegetables, starchy food vs non starchy foods, smartcarbs, powerfuels, etc. So I’ll try and explain it a bit for those who were also confused.

What is a SmartCarb?

From the Nutrisystem web site “The term “SmartCarbs” refers to a specific group of carbohydrates that are nutrient-rich and lower on the Glycemic Index. These carbs are packed with fiber so they are digested more slowly, helping you feel fuller longer. Plus, they deliver vitamins, minerals and other important nutrients your body needs. Foods like whole grain rice, pasta and cereals, fresh or frozen fruit, and starchy veggies like beans, peas, corn and sweet potatoes all fall into the SmartCarb category.”

The NutriSystem NutriCURB bars count as one SmartCarb & one PowerFuel
NutriSystem Nutri-PRO Shakes count as one SmartCarb & one PowerFuel. They help burn bellyfat & build lean muscle mass.

NutriSystem SmartCarbs

What is a PowerFuel?

From the NutiSystem website “The foods included in the PowerFuels group include high-quality proteins that contain essential amino acids as well as nuts and nut butters that contain healthy fats. PowerFuels are a great addition to your diet because it takes longer for your body to digest them, so they help keep you feeling full as you go about your day.”

The NutriSystem NutriCURB bars count as one SmartCarb & one PowerFuel
TurboShakes are one PowerFuel & help burn bellyfat.
NutriSystem Nutri-PRO Shakes count as one SmartCarb & one PowerFuel. They help burn bellyfat & build lean muscle mass.

Nutrisystem PowerFuels

OK vegetables?

Starchy vegetables like corn, potatoes and peas fall under the SmartCarb category. So those are limited.

The non-starchy vegetable group includes familiar staples like leafy greens, broccoli and tomatoes. You should be eating at least four non-starchy vegetable servings along with your Nutrisystem meals. Many of these veggies you can eat as much as you want! woo hoo 🙂

NutriSystem vegetables

OK free foods?

“Free Foods are no-calorie or low-calorie optional add-ins that you can use to spice up your Nutrisystem foods or your SmartCarbs, PowerFuels and Vegetables. These optional extras are unlimited when they are less than 10 calories.”

OK Extras?

“Extras are also add-ons you might use to add some flavor to your foods. Extras, however, contain between 11 and 35 calories per serving. To avoid loading up on too many added calories, we recommend limiting your Extras to three servings per day.”

NutriSystem extras

What are FlexMeals?

Haven’t really got to this point yet. I like it easy and just use their meals. 🙂

Water?

They recommend at least 64 ounces day. Any fluid counts, but make sure it doesn’t have calories. Black coffee, Unsweetened Iced Tea, Seltzer, tea; black, green, herbal. They said it helps flush the sodium out of your system so you don’t retain water and are less bloated.

They recommend not drinking at all on the program.

So what’s a typical day look like? For someone with no health issues, they recommend a ratio of 50% carbs, 30% protein & 20% fats. 1,500 calories a day for men and 1,200 for women. If you lift weights make sure to get added protein to keep muscle loss to a minimum.

First thing I do is step on the scale every day after I use the bathroom. I have one of those ones that tells you your weight, fat, muscle, bone, water, body age, etc. I record all the data in a journal. I also took body measurements and will probably remeasure every 2 weeks. I am a data driven kind of guy.

I get up in the morning. I like to have one full squeezed lemon in 16 ounces of water. I usually wait about an hour to have breakfast after the water.

Breakfast:
I have my NutriSystem item labeled breakfast & one PowerFuel

AM Snack:
NutriSystem provided snack plus one PowerFuel & one SmartCarb

Lunch:
NutriSystem provided lunch plus one PowerFuel, one “extra” & two servings of vegetables. I personally go to the gym at lunch. So my powerfuel, I eat half before I go to the gym and half after. That way I have added energy to workout and and the protein and carbs can fuel muscle growth and put energy back in my muscles.

PM Snack:
NutriSystem provided snack plus one “extra”

Dinner:
NutriSystem provided dinner plus one SmartCarb, one “extra”  & two servings of vegetables

 

 

How To Cure & Reverse Gum Disease, Gingivitis & Periodontal Disease Quickly

So we all know there is no cure for much of anything. But if you catch Gum Disease, Gingivitis & Periodontal Disease early it can usually be completely reversed.

Here are the top tips on fixing it and helping to eliminate bad breath:

  • Brush after each meal & before bedtime. Use a soft bristle brush & replace your toothbrush every three months.
  • Use a gentle toothpaste.
  • Floss your teeth at least twice a day
  • Use a water flosser or Waterpik
  • Chew gum. After you eat, pop in a piece of sugar-free gum sweetened with xylitol. Xylitol kills the bacteria that cause cavities, and gum in general makes more saliva in your mouth, which helps to bring down acid levels. Chew gum for about 20 minutes after you eat.If you can’t do that swish some water around your mouth.
  • Use mouthwash after each meal; esp if you can’t brush. (Keep a travel bottle in your car or purse) Make sure to rinse your mouth out with water before using as some toothpastes can interact with mouthwash; also known as mouth-rinse. Most over the counter versions last about 3 – 5 hours before you need to use it again.
  • See your dentist at least EVERY 6 months. If you are lazy about brushing; you might need to see your dentist for a cleaning every three to four months.
  • Vitamin C can help bleeding gums, according to a study at the USDA Western Nutrition Research Center in San Francisco. The National Institute of Health recommends a daily dose of 100 to 200mg
  • A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined data from 6,700 people. Those with the highest levels of vitamin D were 20% less likely to show signs of gingivitis.
  • Getting at least 800 milligrams of calcium a day can reduce your chances of developing severe gum disease, according to a study from the State University of New York at Buffalo.

Make sure any products you use earns the ADA Seal of Acceptance. They earn it by providing scientific evidence that demonstrates the safety and efficacy of its product, which the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs carefully evaluates according to objective requirements.

More than 75 percent of Americans over 35 have some form of gum disease.

gum disease

Signs you may have Gum Disease, Gingivitis & Periodontal Disease:

  • Gums that bleed during and after tooth-brushing
  • Red, swollen or tender gums
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth
  • Receding gums
  • Formation of deep pockets between teeth and gums
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Changes in the way teeth fit together on biting, or in the fit of partial dentures

Why do gums recede?

  • Gum diseases
  • Vigorous brushing and flossing
  • Hard toothbrush
  • Inadequate daily oral hygiene
  • Improper dental care
  • Teeth grinding
  • Crooked or misaligned teeth
  • Badly fitted crowns, dentures or bridgework
  • Consumption of tobacco products
  • Piercing of lip or tongue
  • Genetics

Diagnosis

Your dentist will check your gums for bleeding, swelling and firmness. They will check to make sure your teeth don’t move or have any sensitivity. They will check your site and order full x rays to look for the breakdown of bone around your teeth.

teeth numbering system

You might hear them call out a bunch of numbers while there poking your gums. That’s called dental charting. They are measuring how far a probe can go into your gums. The bigger the numbers the worse off you are. Health gums the numbers will be under 3. Gums should be nice and pink with no bleeding. 3 to 5 mm is beginning stages of disease and bone loss might be occurring. Anything over 5 is serious and needs to be fixed ASAP.

gum disease pockets

Gum disease is serious. According to the American Dental Association, advanced gum disease can lead to a loss of gum tissue and bone. It may also be linked to serious health conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Gingivitis is the term used for the inflammation of gums. At this stage you will show signs of inflammation without gum recession or bone loss. Chronic gingivitis can be seen in most of the population and it is characterized by tender, swollen, red gums that bleed easily and may be responsible for bad breath. If not treated, it can advance to periodontitis and lead to further complications.

The primary cause of gum disease is poor oral hygiene, resulting in plaque buildup along and under the gum line. Plaque builds up when bacteria attach to the tooth and gum margins.

Disease-causing bacteria tend to appear in oral biofilms not disturbed on a regular basis by oral hygiene procedures like brushing and flossing. As gum disease sets in, the disease-causing bacteria move into defects known as periodontal pockets around the teeth from which they are increasingly difficult to remove. There are currently over six hundred species of bacteria known to exist in the mouth alone, with only about four hundred currently identified. Disease-causing bacteria may only account for a small proportion of the total bacterial population in the mouth, but their effects if uncontrolled can be devastating.

Periodontal disease refers to any disease (actually several) that affect the areas around the teeth (from the Latin “peri” – around and Greek “odont” – tooth).

While a regular dental cleaning is for the visible portion of teeth, scaling and root planing is a special cleaning that removes plaque and tartar (also known as calculus) from under the gumline (in periodontal pockets) and smoothes the root surfaces to promote healing. A scaling procedure is the only way to remove calculus from this area.

Mouthwashes / Mouth Rinses

Choosing A Mouthwash:
What’s the best mouthwash to use to help create a nice clean mouth?
There are two types of mouthwash: cosmetic and therapeutic. Cosmetic mouthwash temporarily control bad breath, but have no long term application beyond their temporary benefit. For example, if a product doesn’t kill bacteria associated with bad breath, then its benefit is considered to be solely cosmetic. Therapeutic mouthwash, by contrast, has active ingredients intended to help control or reduce conditions like bad breath, gingivitis, plaque, and tooth decay.

Active ingredients that may be used in therapeutic mouthwash include:

  • cetylpyridinium chloride
  • chlorhexidine
  • essential oils
  • fluoride
  • peroxide

Cetylpyridinium chloride may be added to reduce bad breath. Both chlorhexidine and essential oils can be used to help control plaque and gingivitis. Fluoride is a proven agent in helping to prevent decay. Peroxide is present in several whitening mouthwashes. Therapeutic mouthwash is available both over-the-counter and by prescription, depending on the formulation. For example, mouthwashes containing essential oils are available in stores, while those containing chlorhexidine are available only by prescription.

Mouthwashes with therapeutic agents like antimicrobials, however, may be effective for more long-term control of bad breath. Antimicrobials in mouthwash formulations include chlorhexidine, chlorine dioxide, cetylpyridinium chloride, and essential oils (e.g., eucalyptol, menthol, thymol, and methyl salicylate). Other agents used in mouthwashes to inhibit odor-causing compounds include zinc salts, ketone, terpene, and ionone. Although the combination of chlorhexidine and cetylpyridinium chloride plus zinc lactate has been shown to significantly reduce bad breath, it also may significantly contribute to tooth staining.

When used in mouthwashes, antimicrobial ingredients like cetylpyridinium, chlorhexidine, and essential oils have been shown to reduce plaque and gingivitis when combined with daily brushing and flossing. While some studies have found that chlorhexidine achieved better plaque control than essential oils, no difference was observed with respect to gingivitis control. Cetylpyridinium and chlorhexidine may cause brown staining of teeth, tongue, and/or restorations.

So far chlorhexidine gluconate mouthwash is the most effective anti-plaque and anti-gingivitis to date. The ability of the oral tissues to absorb chlorhexidine gluconate allows it to be slowly released in active form over 12 to 24 hours.

Some studies show an alcohol based (ethanol) mouthwash could potentially cause oral cancer. It works by killing germs and bacteria in your mouth. It also burns when you use it and will dry out your mouth a bit.
Children younger than the age of 6 should not use mouthwash, unless directed by a dentist, because they may swallow large amounts of the liquid inadvertently.

MLM Downline Business Builders & Leaders

Hello Down-line Business Leaders!!

First of all let me say I am in awe of the TALENT and POWER of the people that are receiving this email!

I have finally learned enough about this ‘brand new’ technology of email 🙂 to assemble a distribution list of my entire Downline Business Leaders! (And I am still waiting for a few more I can’t see on my recap!) I have had all of you on different lists but now that I have put you all in one spot…WOW, what a team of people we have! There are truly no limits to what this group of people can and will achieve with Shaklee!! I am VERY blessed and humbled to have the privilege of a downline like this! Truly INCREDIBLE!! Look out world, here we come!

My wife Cindy and my Girls say hello and wish all of you a very blessed and prosperous New Year!

The New Year always gives us a chance to look back and see where we have been and the chance to look ahead at were we want to go, so in that spirit I want to share something with you all. I was recently doing some ‘house cleaning’ of materials from the past 15 years of being involved in Network Marketing and I stumbled across some records from my first few years involved in MLM. I thought I would share them with you in this email because I can remember like it was just yesterday how excited I was about trying to achieve the big Dreams I had back then.

AN OVERNIGHT SUCCESS!! (NOT)

Many of you may or may not know that my first check in this business (in 1990) was a whopping $0.46 (Yes, that’s 46 cents!) and that was after a full 90 days of work! Man, did my friends and family think I was NUTS! 🙂 But hey, you have to start somewhere! I found the records of the next few months, are you ready for this: The next checks went like this: $3.68, then $8.64, then $8.28 (backslider!), then $10.62, then $14.30 (Note the 40% increase!!!!), then $30.72 (Another double! Now this thing is going to fly!), then $28.72 (Dang it!), then $33.61, then $39.22! OK, not real impressive, but I was starting to see a trend! I won’t bore you with the remaining early times but I think you can get the picture. In January of 1992 (2 years from my start) I made a total of $762.77!!! The only problem was my expenses were $958.24!! Man, is this a GREAT business or what?!! 1993 was getting better though as I finally got a check with a comma in it!! Late in 1994 I was able to quit my regular job! (That, as they say, was priceless!) Then between 1995 and 2004 I made over $5,000,000!! (Yes, that’s 5 Million!) So much for the over night thing!

I am not sure whether this will encourage you or discourage you but it is what it is! 🙂 To be honest, I don’t really believe that I did too much different in the early lean days than I did when I got the big checks. I don’t think I became more talented, more determined or too much more educated about the products or business offerings. I very simply DID NOT QUIT on my dreams and I consistently talked to people as often as I could. Many said NO, some said YES. (And of those that said yes, only a few really meant it!!:-)) But that is the beauty of this business! It does not take many! If there is one thing that made the difference, it was the fact that I was involved at the time of a MAJOR INDUSTRY SHIFT. (For those who don’t know, I was in the Telecom Industry which exploded in the mid 90’s, then subsequently busted around 2002-2004, of which I thank God everyday that it did so that I could be here now!)

That experience is why we should ALL be SO EXCITED ABOUT SHAKLEE TODAY!!

WE ARE AT THE RIGHT PLACE AT THE RIGHT TIME!!!

All of us are really just getting started with our Shaklee businesses. Some of us have had 2 years now and some just a few months. (Feel free to compare your earnings to that of mine during your early stages in this business if you want to get really excited, you are probably WAY ahead of me!!) HERE IS SOMETHING YOU CAN NOT MISS: WE ARE AT A TIME OF A MAJOR, MAJOR INDUSTRY SHIFT!! The noise of Health and Wellness is everywhere and will continue to get much louder in the next 5 to 10 years! (With or without any of us! And we have the PERFECT vehicle with SHAKLEE!) Today ‘Green’ is GOLD! And it is not just happening here in the US and Canada! We will blaze a trail around the world with Shaklee and I believe it can be lead by THIS team of people!!! I am CONVINCED that the Top Income earners of Shaklee 5 and 10 years from now will be filled with the names of the people on this email list and their downline that have yet to enter our businesses!! But it won’t happen by accident or chance or luck! It WILL come from commitment, dedication and persistence! (Notice I said NOTHING about talent!) IT’S ALL ABOUT HOW BAD DO WE (YOU) WANT IT?!

THE TIME FOR MASSIVE ACTION IS NOW!

Over the next 3 to 5 years (That’s only 36 to 60 months time!) we must take action EVERYDAY toward our Dreams. You never know what action, even the smallest of them, will result in massive future success. This year of 2007 is going to be a critically important foundational year for the development of everyone’s businesses. Take advantage of the timing and position we find ourselves squarely in the center of! Put your goals in front of you everyday, somehow – someway, and TAKE ACTION! I know I am going too!

I will be communicating with you on a regular basis via email, conference calls and in person in many areas in 2007. I would like to put my travel schedule together in the month of January for the remainder of 2007 and if you think I could help you in your business with a visit to your area please let me know and I will get there! I would also like to invite each of you as business leaders, and your teams, to my Retreat in Wisconsin Dells for a weekend of Dream Building, Training and FUN!  I will be scheduling get away weekends throughout the year. Let me know of your interest as well!

I will also be busy personally developing new Business Partners to join us in our mission to spread Shaklee around the globe! If there is ANYTHING I can assist you with, don’t hesitate to ask! 2007 is going to be a GREAT year!

God Bless. Sincerely, Pat

However, a person has a Constitutional right to prescribe for him- or herself, and rightfully assumes responsibility for his or her own health. Neither the sender of this information, Shaklee, nor Shaklee distributors can assume any responsibility for any results obtained from the correct or incorrect application of the therapeutic approaches described here.

The reality is that a food-based approach is backed up by thousands of success stories over many, many years, in many different countries, and that a food-based approach is a conservative one, close to nature. It’s also an approach that individuals have access to and control of. Shaklee products fit in because they are total food supplements, processed naturally from quality food sources to use when you’re not getting enough of, or the right kind of, food for good health.

Shaklee has been in business since 1956, with original research by Dr. Shaklee going back to the early 1900s, and there are millions of satisfied Shaklee customers over the span of 85+ years (since Dr. Shaklee’s products have been available) who have dealt with a myriad of health concerns. With Shaklee’s 30-day money-back guarantee, you have everything to gain, and nothing to lose.
