Diabetes can cause
serious problems in your mouth. You can do something about it
If you have
diabetes, make sure you take care of your mouth. People with
diabetes are at risk for mouth infections, especially
periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease can damage the
gum and bone that hold your teeth in place and may lead to
painful chewing problems. Some people with serious gum disease
lose their teeth. Periodontal disease may also make it hard to
control your blood glucose (blood sugar).
Other problems diabetes can cause are dry mouth and a fungal
infection called thrush. Dry mouth happens when you do not
have enough saliva—the fluid that keeps your mouth wet.
Diabetes may also cause the glucose level in your saliva to
increase. Together, these problems may lead to thrush, which
causes painful white patches in your mouth.
You can keep your teeth and gums healthy. By controlling your
blood glucose, brushing and flossing everyday, and visiting a
dentist regularly, you can help prevent periodontal disease.
If your diabetes is not under control, you are more likely to
develop problems in your mouth.
Take steps to keep your mouth healthy. Call
your dentist when you notice a problem.
If you have diabetes, follow

is Safe Mode in
Safe mode is a Windows maintenance mode where
only the bare minimum of drivers are loaded. You don't have
access to CD ROMs, printers, or other non-essential devices.
It's helpful to use this mode when you are having problems
with your PC. For example, maybe you just installed an awesome
new video card, but in all the excitement loaded the wrong
driver for it. This in turn caused your video display under
windows to be non-existant. If you go into Safe mode, you can
I also use it to help find problems with programs. If I get
lots of "illegal operation" messages, I try running the
program in safe mode to see if the program itself is the
problem. If the program runs fine in safe mode, I can assume I
have another program or driver that's interfering with the
program's operation and causing the error. (Note that not all
software runs in Safe mode - especially more robust programs,
but it's still worth a shot).
To get to Safe mode, press the F8 key when
Windows starts to boot. You have to do this BEFORE
you see the first "Windows" screen. I start tapping
away at mine when as soon as I get by the BIOS startup screen
or the manufacturer's splash screen. Experiment and you'll get

- NATURAL HEALING BACK PAIN
Back Pain! Almost all of us have experienced back pain
in our lives for one reason or another. Among the many causes
are: slipped disc, strain, over exertion, weak back and
abdominal muscles, jerk, injury, bad posture, pregnancy,
spondylosis, whiplash in the past, bone degeneration etc.
Since Spine is one of the most important parts of the body,
backache must be given serious attention. A visit to the
doctor should not be delayed. If the cause is one of slipped
disc, spondylosis, injury, spine curvature, osteoperosis or
fibrosistis, then immediate medical attention must be sought.
If your backache is posture related or due to strain,
arthritis, weak back muscle tone, over exertion or pregnancy,
then you can find immense relief in Reiki and Aromatherapy.
Essential oils, with their analgesic, anti-inflammatory,
anti-spasmodic, sedating and warming properties, can provide
wonderful relief from acute and chronic back pain. They act by
penetrating deep into the muscle tissues, expanding the
contracted muscles and allowing the blood to flow to the area.
Examples of such essential oils are Rosemary, Lavender,
Juniper Berry, Sandalwood, Black Pepper, Ginger, Vetiver,
Thyme, Camphor, Chamomiles etc.
Here are some additional tips:
Do not move,
twist or bend with a jerk.
Do not pick
heavy load without support.
posture, stand with your chin up, chest up, shoulders back and
Sit with a
cushion supporting the aching part of your back.
Pilates are very effective especially if the back pain is
containing calcium or take calcium supplements to prevent
osteoperosis from setting in and worsening the condition.
spouse or friend do occasional back massage using essential
oils in a base oil, avoiding pressure on the spine and the
kidney area. Relax with a hot water bottle on the back after
short breaks away from your desk or house work. Stretch and/or
lay down for 5 minutes to lift the strain off your back.
If the upper
backache is radiating to your neck, then sleep with a soft
towel rolled under your neck and a cushion under your knees.
backache is due to pregnancy then a weekly lower back, lower
leg and foot massage would give great relief.

All of you must have heard about the Tsunami disaster
in Asia. It is a dreadful beginning for the year 2005. The
death toll, as shown in news, is increasing in number, day by
day. Millions have lost their lives. Many have lost their dear
ones and their homes. The latest figures show that 150,000
people have lost their lives in this natural calamity.
Authorities fear that there are thousands more missing about
whom we have no idea and who will never be counted or
accounted for. This is the biggest catastrophe of our times.
For the information of our readers interested in knowing what
tsunami is, here is a little briefing. Tsunami is a
Japanese word meaning harbor waves (tsu: harbor, nami:
waves). This term is used to describe a series of big, moving
ocean waves. By big, it means that the successive crests or
troughs are spaced at great distances from each other hence
these waves have large wavelengths. They can be as high as 25
feet or more. Once produced, they travel in all directions. As
they proceed towards land, the time between successive wave
crests/troughs varies from five to ninety minutes. Depending
on their wavelengths, some areas may be hit severely while
others, not too far off, might be hit mildly. They are
generated by natural calamities like earthquakes, volcanic
eruptions in the sea or deep-sea landslides. The pace of these
waves is fast. They move rapidly, flooding and damaging coast
line populations. Everything that comes in their way falls
victim to these up roaring waves.
The shocking scenes of the Tsunami survivors in South and
Southeast Asia showed on TV and pictures in print media make
us sad to see our human folks in suffering. At the same time,
they trigger us to respond to calls to contribute to the
largest relief operation ever carried out in recent past.
A German proverb is "Charity sees the need not the cause". We
all sitting safely in our homes, in our comfy couch, watch TV
and says a word or two to sympathize with the sufferers. But
is it all that we should be doing? All of us, I believe, are
capable to do much more. We have to feel the misery of
thousands of Tsunami- stricken families. They have lost their
homes. They have no food, no drinkable clean water. They are
facing the loss of their dear ones. We can help them by
donating whatever little or big we can give in as charity.
Charity is a deed with a high virtue. We make so many clothes
all year around. Do we really need so many? What if we give
some of the portion of our budget that has been set aside for
luxuries, to these needy people? When our excessively worn
dresses turn shabby, we tend to give them as charity and feel
that we have done our part. But that’s not charity. A quote
from Jack London refers to the same thing as "A bone to the
dog is not charity. Charity is the bone shared with the dog,
when you are just as hungry as the dog." Similarly "the
charity that hastens to proclaim its good deeds, ceases to be
charity, and is only pride and display." Our all deeds for
charity shall be solely for the sake of helping Allah's
creation to seek His agreement and accord. Hence, young
fellows, step out and do all you can to help people just like
us who are in need of our help.
Closing with a quote worth to bear in mind, " The best thing
to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent,
tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to a father, deference; to
your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to
yourself, respect; to all men, charity."
safeguard us from all harms and perils? Ameen!
