Do More With Less

(NewsUSA) - It's not easy being green. Much of what we purchase to feed our daily habits comes in extraneous packaging better suited to surgery than snacking.

While growing eco-consciousness has yielded no shortage of products to help you avoid wastefulness, the simplest solution is to find ways to do it yourself -- and the following products are cleverly designed to help you do just that.

Problem: Using too many disposable cups.

Solution: Canning jar and a Cuppow drinking lid. From the water cooler to the café, bringing your own cup reduces your footprint without sacrificing your favorite routine.

Available at cuppow.com, $8.99 (free domestic shipping).

Problem: Taking expensive coffee to go.

Solution: CoffeeSock Pour-Over Coffee Filters. Buying your daily cup can add up to more than $1,000 a year, but brewing it yourself can keep that total under $100. A simple pour-over set-up with a reusable organic cotton filter from CoffeeSock Co. gives you the same great taste with none of the waste.

Available at Whole Foods Market, $9.99-$12.99.

Problem: Over-packaged junk food snacks.

Solution: Wide-mouth canning jar with a BNTO jar lunchbox adapter. Convenience comes with a hefty cost at the grocery store, and nothing beats making your own snacks for a fraction of the price. Reusable products help you skip the expensive, over-packaged junk and focus on healthy options while saving money and the environment -- one treat at a time.

Available at BNTO.com, $8.99 (with free domestic shipping).

New Treatment for Undiagnosed Sports Injuries -- From Your Dentist

Lifestyles - Thu, 03/05/2015 - 4:12pm
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - Sports-related injuries are common and, when an athlete is hurt, care follows a proven, long-standing protocol of rehabilitation. But what happens when impact occurs to the head, face or jaw, and -- at the time -- no immediate injury is diagnosed?

Weeks, months or even years later, many of these players begin to experience headaches, TMJ/D, migraines, vertigo or tinnitus -- estimated to impact 50 million people in the U.S. to some degree.

"Undiagnosed head trauma from sports injuries -- or other types of impact, including minor car accidents -- is one of the most common causes we see of chronic headaches, migraine, tinnitus and vertigo," says Dr. Ben Burris, an orthodontist with 28 clinics in Arkansas.

Now, these long-term and sometimes debilitating conditions can often be resolved with a painless, non-invasive treatment without drugs or needles -- and all at the dentist's office.

"For over three years, we have been able to help patients with conditions caused by sports injuries," says Dr. Tad Morgan of Tyler, Texas. "If you damaged your knee or shoulder, you would go to the sports medicine clinic for rehab. With injuries to the head, face or jaw, rehab was unavailable until the advent of TruDenta care."

Once diagnosed using a painless, digitally enhanced process, patients receive treatment through a proprietary combination of FDA-cleared, low-level laser therapy, therapeutic ultrasound and other modalities. Each of these was originally developed by MDs in sports medicine to speed the healing of joints and force-related traumas. The TruDenta system can quickly resolve issues in the head, neck, face and jaw, which people may have suffered for years.

"Many of our patients with chronic headaches and migraines are females who have played sports -- soccer, gymnastics or even cycling," says Dr. Richard Hughes of Sandy, Utah. "The common denominator is some form of undiagnosed head trauma which was not properly rehabilitated and resulted in long-term painful symptoms."

TruDenta doctors report rapidly resolving these issues for the majority of patients with long-lasting results. Care is often covered by medical insurance, and TruDenta doctors provide a free consultation.

"We are excited to help these patients in 12 weeks or less without drugs or needles," says Dr. Jeffrey Mastroianni of Glen Carbon, Illinois. "It is truly life-changing for many."
