Well today I went to the acupuncturist again. He asked me how I was doing and I told him I noticed no improvement. Again I took of my socks and shoes and lay down. This time he put a few more needles in my head, but none in my feet. He then put the heat lamp over me, turned off the lights, put on some soothing music, and left. I remained in the room by myself for almost an hour. It does hurt to have needles in you for that long. Not only that, whenever I lay down I can feel my head pounding constantly. While, I could feel some different movements and sensations going on, the headache remained strong and would not go away. After, I made another appointment to see him.
In Other News: Chocolate Better than Fluoride?
New research suggests an extract of cocoa powder that occurs naturally in chocolates, teas, and other products might be an effective natural alternative to fluoride in toothpaste, according to
Sadeghpour said his research revealed that the cocoa extract was even more effective than fluoride in fighting cavities, according to a news release from the university. The extract, a white crystalline powder whose chemical makeup is similar to caffeine, helps harden teeth enamel, making users less susceptible to tooth decay, the study suggested. The extract has been proven effective in the animal model, but it will probably be another two to four years before the product is approved for human use and available for sale.
I say stick with your fluoride, while chocolate tastes good, it keeps you up at night if you eat it too late, and every one knows you should brush before going to bed.
