Mercury Free Dentistry

mercury-freeIn an era when the use of most mercury-containing substances and mercurial medical devices ( mercury thermometers, mercurial diuretics, mercurial wound disinfectants ) has been discontinued and the general public is advised to be concerned about mercury exposure through fish and seafood consumption, it is surprising if not worrisome that the Australian Dental Association continues to claim that amalgam is “a safe, valuable and viable choice for dental patients”.

The proven truth is that dental amalgam is the single greatest source of mercury to the general population, a fact acknowledged even by the World Health Organization (WHO). In Criteria 118, published by the WHO in 1991, the figures representing the amount of mercury ingested by the population from dental amalgam on an average daily intake were decidedly alarming: 3 -17 mcg/day, as opposed to 2.3 mcg/day from fish and seafood, 0.3 mcg/day from other foods and 0 mcg/day from water and air. In 2003, the WHO revised Criteria 118 and reaffirmed that the predominant source of human exposure to elemental mercury is from amalgam fillings, but this time the figure for dental amalgam was raised to 27 mcg/day, ten times greater than all other dietary sources of mercury combined.

In the risk assessment of exposure to mercury from silver amalgam fillings that was commissioned by the National Health & Medical Research Council of Australia, dental amalgam removal has been shown to be ”effective in reducing mercury levels to the levels of those in people without amalgam fillings”. By choosing mercury free dentistry Australia-based individuals and their families can effectively improve their overall health, because removing the predominant source of mercury into their bodies will considerably decrease the body burden of mercury.

The International Academy of Oral Health & Toxicology (IAOHT) has expressed its concerns about the anecdotal claims of safety made by amalgam manufacturers from dental associations in spite of scientific evidence clearly suggesting that all mercury fillings release substantial amounts of mercury constantly. A highly toxic heavy metal, mercury leaks from amalgam fillings in the forms of metallic mercury vapour, mercury ions and elemental mercury.

The mercury vapor that is emitted by both old and new amalgam fillings is inhaled into the lungs and absorbed at a rate of 80%. Extensive research has also shown that the amount of mercury vapour increases with any kind of stimulation, especially friction, heat and acidity. In other words, masticating, brushing your teeth, grinding your teeth, drinking hot coffee and acidic beverages, chewing gum ( even nicotine gum) and undergoing professional dental cleaning, all cause the mercury to continue to leak out of the amalgam fillings for minimum one hour and a half!

Constant exposure to mercury from silver amalgam fillings has been associated with a significantly increased risk of respiratory, digestive and reproductive system disorders, chronic kidney disease, central nervous system dysfunction ( including exacerbation of pre-existent degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis) as well as carcinogenicity. Scientific evidence also suggests a four-fold increase in the amount of mercury released from amalgam fillings when in the presence of gold in one’s mouth. In the top 20 most hazardous substances list compiled by the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, mercury ranks 3rd after arsenic and lead and throughout the world, dental amalgam is regarded as a highly toxic waste product, considerably more toxic even than asbestos.

According to several scientific studies ( including Hahn’s renowned sheep and monkey studies), mercury is a multi-potent toxin that affects multiple levels of the biochemical dynamics of the cell in as little as 2 to 3 weeks. Mercury was found to be detectable even in the mitochondria ( organelles inside cells) whose role is to supply cellular energy, causing mitochondrial damage. A major sign of mitochondrial damage is chronic fatigue; having one’s silver amalgam fillings removed carefully and safely by a trusted and experienced holistic mercury-free dentist is a key part of the treatment for chronic fatigue. In addition, recent research shows that autism, especially in children is linked to mitochondrial damage.

Dental amalgam must be considered an incompatible and unacceptable material for dental restoration, especially when safer and fully adequate alternatives such as composite ( tooth-coloured) fillings are available for the general population. The amount of mercury in so-called amalgam fillings is anything but insignificant. In fact, this amount is 1000 times higher than the Environmental Protection Agency will allow for the air that we breathe. This should be of concern to any health-conscious Australian who needs dental restoration. By wisely relying on mercury free dentistry Australia-based patients are given the opportunity to avail excellent restorative dentistry employing bio-compatible, mercury-safe materials such as composites that are just as durable as silver amalgam fillings yet pose no health risks whatsoever.

When looking for a holistic, mercury-free dental practice specialized in safe mercury amalgam removals and bio-compatible change overs, it is essential to take into consideration key factors such as experience, reputation, reliability, qualifications and dedication to patient education and to make sure it follows safer amalgam removal protocols. The manner in which dentists operate their dental equipment has a tremendous impact on the amount of mercury released from amalgam fillings. For instance, drilling on mercury high dry will cause both the patient and the dentist to be exposed to dangerously high concentrations of mercury vapour ( as high as 4,000 mcg/m3). By following the IAOHT protocols, Friendly Smiles Dental is committed to make dental amalgam removal a safer procedure for each individual as well as its staff.

Specialized in mercury free dentistry Australia, Brisbane based Friendly Smiles Dental ensures a safe, comfortable and pleasant dental experience for each of their esteemed patients. Dr. Tom Trevethan studied mercury free dentistry with Dr. Hal Huggins ( who authored ”Toxic Time Bomb” about the toxicity of mercury from amalgam fillings), has more than three decades of experience removing silver amalgam mercury fillings safely and carefully and is fully qualified to provide safe mercury filling removals. Dr. Trevethan is also an active member of the International Academy of Oral Health & Toxicology.

As emphasized in a IAOHT report, the level of mercury in liver, brain, lung and kidney tissue of newborns, toddlers and children is directly proportional to the number of silver amalgam mercury fillings in the mother’s mouth. This is why any woman who is pregnant or planning pregnancy should consider having her amalgam fillings safely removed. By choosing mercury free dentistry Australia-based mommies-to-be can effectively eliminate the unnecessary risk of birth defects associated with exposure to mercury and protect the health of their unborn babies.

If you have any questions or concerns, wish to learn more about the health risks associated with amalgam mercury fillings or want to book a consultation with Dr. Tom Trevethan to have your amalgam fillings safely removed and replaced with bio-compatible materials, do not hesitate to call Friendly Smiles Dental at 07 3397 0610. When choosing mercury free dentistry Australia-based patients can look forward to the smartest decision in terms of the overall health of themselves and their families.

Bitcoin for Brisbane Businesses

Bitcoin, an often overlooked cryptocurrency, is left unaccepted and unnoticed by many business owners. Unfortunately, failing to accept this currency is a mistake that is made by many Brisbane non-Bitcoin businesses. Here is why it is a good idea for your business to join the digital technology age and start to accept the exponentially growing Bitcoin.

Reason 1: Fiscal Freedom
Simply put, consumers and business owners alike have total and full access to their Bitcoin accounts. No longer will money be inaccessible because of an unexpected bank closure, holiday, or other condition that would typically limit access to money. No money is lost through currency exchange if it must be sent overseas, since Bitcoins are worth the same in every country and locale.

Reason 2: Fees (or lack thereof)
When hearing about a new way to transfer money, the first question of business owners is often whether there are fees, or how much the fees are. Some transactions are completely free, and there is no fee assessed. Users may pay to speed up Bitcoin transfers in Bitcoin Brisbane, but there is no obligation to pay otherwise. If fees do need to be assessed, users can count on them being far less than banks, PayPal, and credit card companies currently charge.

Reason 3: Lower Risk
Merchants and consumers often worry about identity theft. Consumers are afraid that their money will be accessed without their consent by either the merchant or a malicious third party. Merchants are often worried that consumers will use someone else’s payment information, making the money no good. Fortunately, Bitcoin takes care of all of these worries. Due to a highly sophisticated encryption mechanism, the Bitcoin wallet owner is the only person who will ever be able to initiate transfers. Unlike credit cards, where malicious payment receivers may make unauthorized transactions, or which consumers can steal and use for their own purposes, Bitcoin transfers are completely trustworthy and secure.

There are also certain types of markets where the fraud risk is large. In these cases, merchants can now accept Bitcoin and do away with the risk. In short, Bitcoin transfers in Brisbane have never been safer or easier or cheaper. Compared to the current major payment options, it certainly is superior.

Reason 4: Security
As alluded to above, security was a primary concern during the creation of Bitcoin, and it is also of concern to Bitcoin’s diverse range of users. One aspect of security not yet discussed revolves around personal information. One reason why consumers may not wish to purchase a product is because they may not yet trust the business with all of their personal information. While, unfortunately, this is a completely valid concern, accepting Bitcoins in Brisbane can help to put the consumer’s mind at ease, and allow him or her to make a purchase he or she otherwise would not be willing to make.

Bitcoin protects personal information insofar as it obliterates the need for it. Instead of relying on information like address, postcode, first and last name, and sometimes even identity numbers, it relies on cryptography. Of course, one reading this may think that because it’s only digital, it will be lost if the user’s computer suddenly crashes and becomes unusable. However, nothing is further from the truth. Many Bitcoin users take advantage of both cloud and local computer backup services to ensure that they will always have this open access to their money, making the Bitcoin market even more stable.

Reason 5: Owned by the People
This final reason to accept Bitcoin is often overlooked. If one takes a look at the various major payment methods, it is quite obvious that they are all owned by major corporations. This makes alteration of information easy. There is essentially no transparency to how they are run, or how much of a fee is actually required to sustain the service versus how much of it serves as profit. Fortunately, there is no need to worry about any of this if you are accepting Bitcoin in Brisbane. It is literally impossible to control the Bitcoin market, even for the creators of it. In this sense, it is more secure. Also an important factor, all information anybody could possibly want about the Bitcoin market, including how many are in circulation, and even specific transactions, are all available publicly on what is called the “block chain.”

Ride on Mowers in Brisbane

ride-on-mowers-brisbaneThe crudest version of the ride on mower can be traced back to the 1800’s when the horse was used to pull a set of cutting blades mounted in an iron frame upon which the operator sat. Such machines were developed and used by wealthy land holders in England and later the USA as a means of maintaining lawned areas on their estates.

Over time, with improvements in technology the ride on mower, ever so slowly made its way into the mainstream. It was following World War II and with the development of the light weight petrol engine that ride on mowers came gained popularity.

A machine that the operator could ride atop of, eliminating the need to push was a godsend for folk enjoying living in the open spaces of rural and acreage settings.

Given that imported products were largely unsuited to local conditions, Brisbane engineer Owen Cox designed and started manufacturing his own ride on mowers in Brisbane in the 1960’s. The Cox ‘Mow Mobile’ was used to clear and maintain large tracts of what are today, Brisbane’s acreage suburbs.

Today, Ride on mowers in Brisbane can be found in 2 basic forms, the tractor style and the zero turn. Tractor style mowers are simple, safe & reliable. The zero turn is the same, but brings speed and the ability to more easily negotiate tight places to the operator. The tradeoff is that zero turns are unsuited to steep inclines and they generally cost more than tractor style mowers.
When considering the purchase of a ride on mower, customers should carefully consider the conditions and the realistic expectations they have of the machine over its lifetime. Buying the cheapest ride on mower available is often a serious and costly mistake in the long run.

The best advice is speak to the experts. At Kenmore Mower & Power Equipment our specialisation is in servicing Brisbane’s acreage suburbs with only quality brands and the best back up in Brisbane, visit our website at www.kenmoremowers.com.au .

How A Speech Therapist Helps

Speech Pathologist working with a hearing impared boy.

Speech Pathologist working with a hearing impared boy.

A speech therapist, sometimes known as a Speech and Language Therapist or a speech pathologist, is someone who’s qualified to help young people and adults with communications disorders. Most people think that speech therapists are only able to help with speech problems (such as stuttering or speech delay) but they actually deal with a much wider range of issues.

Required Qualifications
All speech therapists will have a three or four year university degree course behind them. Some may have done a post-graduate speech therapy course after a previous degree; generally these courses require three A-levels or equivalent qualifications to enter.

Speech therapy courses are universally intensive and contain both clinical placements as well as theoretical work. Speech therapy graduates will have experience helping treat a wide range of different communications disorders.

In the UK all practising speech therapists are required to register with both the HPC (Health Professions Council) and the RCSLT (Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists).

The Initial Assessment
Though speech therapists can work with adults, most of their patients tend to be children and young people. When they first see a patient, they start out by doing an assessment of the person’s speech comprehension (i.e. how well they understand language) and expressive language (i.e. how well they use language).

Comprehension covers both vocabulary and language structures. Some people have trouble with the correct use of verbs, nouns, and prepositions. This is a vocabulary issue. Others may have issues understanding language structures, such as the meaning of a phrase meant to give instructions.

Expressive language is what most people think of as “speech therapy.” This category is broken down into three different areas: speech sounds, articulation problems, and fluency.

Speech sounds, or phonology, happens when the person simply doesn’t have a certain speech sound in their vocabulary. Alternately, they might be using these sounds inappropriately. When someone pronounces “dog” as “dod,” this is called fronting, for example. Pronouncing “glove” as “glub” is called stopping.

Articulation difficulties mean the patient has difficulty producing speech sounds entirely. Perhaps they have a physical problem that hurts enunciation. Cleft lips and palates, poor dentition, and coordination issues (dyspraxia) can all negatively affect pronunciation.

If someone stammers or tends to hesitate in their speech, it’s considered a fluency issue.

Of course these are not all the areas a speech therapist may examine in their assessment. Since they focus on communication as a whole, they will look at the patient’s ability to listen, concentrate, play, imagine, communicate socially, use the appropriate system of communication, and their behaviour.

For example, a patient may hear the words as they’re spoken, but they might not be able to concentrate enough to process the information they hear. This would be an attention/concentration issue, even if others might assume it’s a hearing impairment.

Social communication, functional language use, and behaviour are also important. Speech therapists therefore look at how well the patient can interact with others, and how well they understand the mechanics of a conversation. Can they choose the appropriate system of communication? If they display challenging or agitated behaviour, is this the product of a frustrating inability to communicate?

It’s important to note that the assessment phase does not necessarily mean putting the patient through a battery of tests in a clinic or office. A speech therapist looks at all the areas where a person experiences trouble: they may observe or work with them in different settings, at home and at school. They will also consult with those who are regularly in contact with the patient — parents, carers, teachers, health professionals, etc.

Therapy
Following therapy, the speech therapist will work out a plan of options and discuss them with the patient. Therapy usually involves some combination of direct and indirect therapy, as well as any necessary changes in the ‘communicative environment.’

Direct therapy is what most people think of as therapy. Here, the therapist and patient work on a one-to-one basis to deal with the issues identified during therapy. However since this is time consuming and expensive (the patient or therapist must travel) it’s also common to include indirect therapy in the programme.

With indirect therapy, a certain person (such as a teaching assistant or parent) carries out a specific work programme under the speech therapist’s guidance. The therapist still monitors progress of course.

If needed, the therapist may also suggest changes in the communicative environment. This may mean ensuring the classroom and home contain appropriate symbolic systems, or advising people in the patient’s environment on alternative communication methods.

Why You Need to Dial A Home Doctor

You are young, healthy, and very busy. Do you actually need a home doctor? The answer is yes, you need to hire a home doctor. Of course, you have always been healthy except for that broken hand in 3rd grade, surgery on wisdom teeth, and occasional colds. So, why do you need to hire a home doctor?” Is it because you need numerous tests, blood labs… to ensure you do not have any hidden cancer or heart condition? No. This isn’t the reason.

Simply put, having a home doctor (commonly called Primary care physician (PCP) will keep you healthy as you age. Scientific studies in a myriad of medical journals, including an article published in the International Journal of Health Services, tells that countries with a higher PCP/capita have improved health results; fewer deaths from stroke, cancer, and heart diseases. A separate publication in the journal tells that plentiful provision of primary care physicians is related to longer life span in the community. But how can a decision to dial a home doctor have such huge impacts on your life and health?

The secret behind the huge benefits of hiring a home doctor is what medical elite terms as “continuity of care.” This principle relates to that scenario where you build a relationship with a doctor, and you improve that relationship over time. In return, the home doctor gets to know you, your medical history, your emotional issues, and this aids him to assist you to better manage your overall progress better than any other doctor would. The proven benefits that come with the continuity of dealing home doctors are many. Here are a few;

Someone to Look after You
In the short-term, continuity of care increase the chances that you will get the correct diagnosis and the right treatment. In fact, WHO tells that the best test available to physicians is the test of time. “Your PCP obtains valuable insights from tracking a healthy problem over time – whether for days, weeks or months. As such, he can offer effective treatment options.” Compare this with the other end: If you pump into the general practitioner with a health problem, the doctor does not expect to see you again, so he or she will most likely order more tests and treatment to cover all likely bases at once.

Over the long-term, a doctor who fully understands your habits, medical history and personality can more easily detect signs that signify a negative alteration in your health. For instance, if you complain of chronic fatigue to a physician who does not know you, he or she might not take you seriously, but your home doctor will easily tell you are not your normal self, and something must be long. On the flip side, the same doctor will easily convince you that you are not unwell, and that all you need is a few sedatives and bed rest.

One Point Person
If you require the help of a specialist, let us say a cosmetic surgeon, a seasoned home doctor who knows you well, will easily direct you to someone he knows and with whom he or she has a collaborative relationship. What is even more, you are likely to benefit from their relationships in terms of discounts and obtaining top priority.

“In case you have questions about obtaining advice from specialists, your PCP can assist you sort through them and prioritize which should come first. This concept popularly known as ‘medical home.’” says Richard Madden, a family doctor who sits on the board of director of the Australian Dental Council.

Save Time in the Long-term
The decision to dial a home doctor can help you acquire faster care should you fall ill in the future – whether it’s a common cold a something more serious. “Once you have built that cordial relationship, it’s very easy for us to assist you in future,” tells one family doctor and nursing practitioner, Meg Scott. “We know your medical history, we know a lot about you, and we can help you resolve things even through emails, or over the phone.”

Prevent Future Illness

If you call in for routine checks instead of only appearing when you are sick, your PCP could help you with your health and avoid chronic diseases down the line. “When we do a routine, we carry out a lot of basic checks. Routine checks on you and members of your family are highly valuable to your health,” tells Scott. Home doctors give valuable information on topics such as weight loss, high blood pressure, tobacco and alcohol use, STD prevention, anxiety and stress.”

Choosing the Doctor, Who Is the Best for You

When selecting a home doctor, there are a lot of factors that one must put into account; specialty, experience, online access, health plans and professional interests are just but a few. So, we have collected a list of questions to ask when selecting a personal doctor.

Are You Selecting a PCP?

PCP normally fall into 3 categories, internal medicine – treating adult patients, Family Medicine – treating patients of any age, and paediatrics – treating kids from birth to adolescence. Women will normally consider hiring an Obstetrician or a Gynaecologist for their primary care needs. In addition to choosing the right one for you and your family needs, the secret is to hire a home doctor you trust, and one you are comfortable talking about anything with.

Do you want to access you doctor’s office online?

Most home doctors now offer online services, so that patients can use the web to view their results, request appointments, renew prescriptions, and to email. Considering hiring to hire a home doctor, ensure you recruit one with an online service icon.

Does the Home doctor accept your health insurance?

To avoid uncalled for out of pocket health care expenses, you may want to find a doctor who accepts your health insurance. While most doctors accept almost all major health plans, you may wish to check just to confirm.

So, Who Are among the Best PCP in Australia?

Truth be said, there are numerous primary care physicians in Australia but one service provider have consistently ranked at the top – Dial a Home Doctor. They are Australia leading after hour doctor services. Over the years, they have provided services in Toowoomba, Hervey Bay, Gold Coast, Brisbane, Mackay, and Redcliff – making them the largest provider of doctor’s home visit in Queensland. Contact them today, and let them help you improve your health.

Speech Pathology In Brisbane, Australia

Bloom Lifespan Therapy Services is one of the leading institutions for speech pathology in Brisbane, Australia. The organisation consists of qualified speech pathologists. All of them have been adequately trained to treat people with communication disabilities. They have completed a degree course that encompasses all the aspects of effective communication, some of which include writing, speech, signs, symbols and gestures. In addition, the speech pathologists also work with people who have a difficult time swallowing foods and drinks. In the past, they were referred to as speech-language pathologists or speech therapists. However, you should keep in mind that they are not the same as speech or drama teachers.

The main priority of speech pathologists is to foster effective communication. This usually involves the process of being able to understand and to be understood. It might seem simple enough, but not everyone has the ability to do it. Some of the most common communication disabilities include problems with using and understanding language, speech, voice, hearing, fluency, reading and writing. In fact, one in seven Australians has experienced some form of communication disability. This is one of the main reasons why speech therapy has become so important.

Speech pathologists can work in a variety of settings. This is because communication problems affect people of all ages from different walks of life. You might be surprised to find that children in kindergarten, primary and secondary schools have a problem with their speech. If they fail to deal with their problem early enough, it could end up disrupting their lives in future. Other individuals who require the services of a speech pathologist can be found in nursing homes, hospitals, universities, mental health services, rehabilitation services, community health centres and private practice. In addition, people with cerebral palsy, autism, and intellectual disability require more specialised services because their communication needs tend to quite complex.

A speech pathologists workload includes a variety of activities. They can provide crucial information to mothers about feeding a baby with a cleft palate. Most people don’t realise that these kinds of disorders can lead to speech impairment in the future. As a result, early treatment should be encouraged. Speech pathologists also work in child care centres and schools. In most cases, such institutions have several children who are very hard to understand. They require special communications skills that a regular teacher cannot provide. With sufficient training, such children can learn to communicate in an effective manner.

Speech pathologists also work with people who have experienced severe brain injury because of an accident. They help to return their speech to the way it once was. This usually involves a very lengthy process that requires a huge amount of effort from all the parties involved. This is the only way to achieve a successful outcome. People who have survived a stroke also need to regain their communication skills. It can’t come back automatically.

Speech pathologists provide teachers, doctors and parents with vital information regarding various communication problems. They can offer strategies that will help a person deal with their intellectual disability. At Bloom Lifespan Therapy Services (speech pathology Brisbane), all the speech pathologists are highly qualified to provide all these services.

The speech pathologists at Bloom Lifespan Therapy Services work in a variety ways when it comes to treating their patients. They can work in small groups, become involved in various home-based programs, work within a classroom, give advice, offer direction and provide crucial sources of information. It all depends on what the patient needs. They also coordinate the management of patients, consult with other agencies, provide critical workshops for patients and work as part of a multi-disciplinary team. A speech pathologist is a very important member of an early intervention team, school therapy team and aged care services team.

Communication is the fundamental basis of how we share information and interact with others. It affects how we learn, how we express ourselves and how we build our relationships. It’s important to remember that communication difficulties can arise at any stage of our lives. This is because the ability to communicate starts at birth and continues to develop throughout the course of our lives. It actually never stops, no matter how old you grow. As a result, you should treat any communication issues as soon as possible. One of the main roles of a speech pathologist is to strongly advocate for the appropriate care of people with communication disabilities. This is exactly what Bloom Lifespan Therapy Services does.

Laser Clinic Brisbane

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a light based technology which treats several skin conditions in one treatment. It works in the deeper layers of the skin where traditional skincare cannot reach, thus achieving a far superior result.
Skin concerns such as pigmentation, freckling, sun damage, capillaries, redness, acne scarring and rosacea may be treated with photorejuvenation.

Pulses of light are applied to the skin via a handpiece which filters the wavelengths of light through a layer of ultrasound gel. The treatments remove most types of sun induced pigmentation like freckling, age spots and sun damage. By lessening the darker pigmentation IPL leaves the skin with a more even tone. Vascular skin concerns including capillaries, redness, acne scarring and rosacea are also targeted by the broad wavelengths of light. IPL works particularly well on red acne scarring that is left behind after undergoing acne treatments.

As most people will have several skin concerns, this treatment has become popular as it can address them all. The IPL photorejuvenation also stimulates the production of collagen which will plump and smooth the texture of the skin, improving fine lines, wrinkles and pitted scarring.

There is little or no downtime involved with photorejuvenation. Most people will experience some redness and heat in the area which subsides in several hours after treatment. The most common treatment areas are face, neck, décolletage/chest area and backs of hands.

Photorejuvenation treatments can be utilised as a once off treatment, however a course of treatments will promote the best results. A progressive result can be expected with a change usually noticed within a week after a session which is why IPL Photorejuvenation has gained such popularity among both men and women.
