TMJ disorders may cause mild to debilitating symptoms, such as: •pain while chewing •pain in the ear, face, jaw, and neck •clicking, grating, or popping sounds in the jaw when you open or close your mouth •locking of the jaw joint, headaches Exercises for TMJ pain relief 1. Relaxed jaw exercise Rest your tongue gently on the top of your mouth behind your upper front teeth. Allow your teeth to come apart while relaxing your jaw muscles. 2. Goldfish exercises (partial opening) Place your tongue on the roof of your mouth and one finger in front of your ear where your TMJ is located. Put your middle or pointer finger on your chin. Drop your lower jaw halfway and then close. There should be mild resistance but not pain. A variation of this exercise is to place one finger on each TMJ as you drop your lower jaw halfway and closed again. Do this exercise six times in one set. You should do one set six times daily. 3. Goldfish exercises (full opening) Keeping your tongue on the roof of your mouth, place one finger on your TMJ and another finger on your chin. Drop your lower jaw completely and back. For a variation of this exercise, place one finger on each TMJ as you completely drop your lower jaw and back. Do this exercise six times to complete one set.

Chin tucks With your shoulders back and chest up, pull your chin straight back, creating a “double chin.” Hold for three seconds and repeat 10 times. 5.

No. You need to meet an ENT Specialist immediately as it is probably a nasal or sinus infection causing crusting that is blocking your nostrils. Otrinoz will only worsen your discomfort.

Yes you can safely takes all these with pradaxa an homochek some information for pradaxa ( dabigatran ) which is your main medication. Why is this medication prescribed? Dabigatran is used to treat deep vein thrombosis (DVT; a blood clot, usually in the leg) and pulmonary embolism (PE; a blood clot in the lung) in patients who have been treated with an injectable anticoagulant (''blood thinner''). It is also used to reduce the risk of a DVT and PE from happening again after initial treatment is completed. Dabigatran is used to help prevent DVT and PE in people who have had hip replacement surgery. Dabigatran is also used to help prevent strokes or serious blood clots in people who have atrial fibrillation (a condition in which the heart beats irregularly, increasing the chance of clots forming in the body, and possibly causing strokes) without heart valve disease. Dabigatran is in a class of anticoagulant medications called direct thrombin inhibitors. It works by preventing blood clots from forming in the body. How should this medicine be used? Dabigatran comes as a capsule to take by mouth. When dabigatran is used to treat or prevent DVT or PE or to prevent strokes or serious blood clots in people who have atrial fibrillation, it is usually taken twice a day. When dabigatran is used to prevent a DVT or PE after hip replacement surgery it is usually taken 1 to 4 hours after surgery, and then once a day for another 28 to 35 days. Dabigatran may be taken with or without food. Take dabigatran at around the same times every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take dabigatran exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor. Swallow the capsules whole with a whole glass of water; do not split, chew, or crush them. Do not open the capsules and sprinkle the contents on food or into drinks. Dabigatran will help prevent strokes and blood clots only as long as you continue to take it. Continue to take dabigatran even if you feel well. Make sure to refill your prescription before you run out of medication so that you will not miss doses of dabigatran. Do not stop taking dabigatran without talking to your doctor. If you suddenly stop taking dabigatran, the risk that you will have clot or a stroke may increase.

Drop the Razor and Go in for Laser Hair Removal

Drop the Razor and Go in for Laser Hair Removal

Those were the time when it was deemed tempting for a man to be hairy. With hair almost everywhere, the manlier was the line of thinking. Unfortunately, those days are gone. Today, men don’t want the odd patches of hair on their shoulder or back of the arms and don’t even want chest hair anymore. So, just like ladies, men want their wanted hair removed as well.

There are DIY hair removal kits available, which people really don’t get attracted to. When it comes intense skincare treatments, many prefer to let professionals work wonders, rather than getting some random kit from any local store. Clinic Dermatech offers laser hair treatment for both men and women and has attained the for their work and excellence in the field.

Why choose permanent laser hair removal?

When it comes to hair removal, women have always had a myriad of options like shaving, waxing, and plucking. Men, on the other hand, have been at a loss as they have close to no option other than shaving. Shaving of hair on the face is done but what about the other parts of the body. Getting rid of hair on the chest, the back or elsewhere has been somewhat a mystery. Razors are the easy available but they are also not a permanent solution as the hair tend to regrow. Laser hair removal doesn’t present these problems. Let us check out some benefits of laser hair removal for men:

• It reduces hair growth permanently
• It eliminates ingrown hairs
• It saves you from razor burn and razor-caused bumps

How Does It Work?

Basically, the laser beam causes localized damage to the hair by concentrating light on the hair follicle, while not affecting the rest of the skin. The pigment in the follicles absorbs the laser beams, and this destroys the hair. It takes just a fraction of a second to destroy many follicles of hair at one time. However, permanent hair removal depends on many factors including skin colour, hair colour, and the strength of the laser the particular person can tolerate.

What is the cost of Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal is not really that expensive as people might think. Initially, when laser hair removal was first starting out, it was extremely expensive. Even if a small area was to be treated, like the upper lip, it would cost a large sum of money. Now with the advent of better technologies and the fact that the treatment is more common, the price has fallen down substantially. The cost also depends on the size of the area to be treated. So, getting both the legs treated will be more expensive than doing your underarms.

5 Sweeping Reasons to Drop that Hand Sanitizer

5 Sweeping Reasons to Drop that Hand Sanitizer

5 Sweeping Reasons To Drop That Hand Sanitizer You Carry Everywhere!

Although hand sanitizers offer you the convenience to clean your hands sans soap and water, and help in killing germs, these convenient health tools also come with their share of negatives.

Here's why you should drop that bottle of hand sanitizer, every time you can avoid and go conventional with soap and water:

1. Creation of Superbugs and Destruction of Cells
Although the ingredient triclosans prevent the development of bacteria, it does more harm than good. Studies show that it aids creation of superbugs (different types of bacteria that are resistant to certain forms of antibiotics). Furthermore, according to a 2014 study, triclosans have also been found to spur the development of breast cancer cells, not to mention the destruction of brain cells, according to research conducted by the university of california.

2. Causes Disruption in Hormones
Excessive use of hand sanitizers has also been found to bring about abnormal hormonal problems. Studies reveal that the triclosan ingredient can alter the way hormones function in the body, enabling bacteria to be able to adapt and become more resistant to antibiotics.

3. Development of Life-Threatening Health Problems
Another ingredient in hand sanitizers that play a role in preventing the growth of bacteria is parabens. This ingredient has been found to be a potent contributing factor in many health problems such as cancer, skin irritation, endocrine problems, to name a few.

4. Causes Skin Damage in The Long Run
As an active ingredient in hand sanitizers, alcohol can have an adverse effect on your health. It breaks down the protective outermost layer of skin, rendering it easy for toxins like parabens or bpa (bisphenol a) that is found in plastics to penetrate your skin easily.

5. Makes You Resistant to Antibiotics
Using hand sanitizers can make you resistant to antibiotics, thereby lowering your resistance to diseases. They may affect your body's immunity by killing off good bacteria that are responsible for keeping you safe from disease-causing bad bacteria. A study conducted in 2011 found that health care workers who used hand sanitizers more than soap and water are 6 times more likely to fall prey to outbreaks of norovirus (a highly infectious virus that causes viral gastroenteritis)
