Timberline Financial ~ Personalized Debt Relief Programs


Like many Americans you may be having issues keeping up with your credit card bills. So many people these days are falling behind, continue to fall behind, or they just don’t see their credit card balances going down. In this tough economy, almost everyone has credit card debt, but few realize what it really costs. For example if you have $40,000 in debt, with an average interest rate of 15.9%, paying the minimum payments will cost you around $84,400 dollars over 31 years. That’s ridiculous! In a qualified Credit Card Modification Program, you are represented by team of skilled strategist and professional debt negotiators who will develop a plan to provide you with immediate relief from high monthly payments. In the short-term, this strategy may help to restore some financial stability in your life, while a team of professionals works to reduce the amount of your debt in the long run. Once you’re enrolled you’ll have your own dedicated savings account with an FDIC-Insured National Bank. This account is in your name only, and you’ll have full access to it 24-7. We cannot touch it without your approval. Our program is simple. You’ll have one manageable, monthly payment, and the funds will be transferred from your personal bank account to your new account on the day of the month of your choice. These funds will build monthly while our professionals negotiate with your creditors to resolve your account for the lowest possible amount. Bear in mind, paying less than you own your debts may result in taxable income to you when a settlement agreement is reached. The funds will be dispersed from your special purpose account securely to your creditor. This secure payment is tracked with a unique transaction number to ensure it is properly credited and fully documented. The funds in your account will also be used to pay our fees once we have earned them. Timberline Financial is a performance space company, which means you’re not charged any upfront fees or any monthly fees. Ourguarantee is simple, if we don’t settle your account, you don’t ever pay a fee on that account. One of the key benefits of our program is the option of full legal representation through the AmeriLit Legal Plan. This legal plan provides you with full legal coverage on your enrolled accounts with no deductible no co-pays and no limits. Your attorneys will assist you if creditors or debt collectors engage in illegal collection practices, and they can defend you in the unlikely event of litigation. There are many key benefits to our debt resolution program: No upfront fees. No monthly fees. You will always speak with a live person. One monthly payment. Complete legal protection when you sign up with AmeriLit, and the peace of mind knowing you are on the road to resolving your enrolled debts. The program may increase the amount of money you owe due to the accrual of fees, penalties and interest, however any such accrued fees, penalties, or interests are negotiated and resolved along with the principal amount of your debt at no additional cost to you. In fact, many people who enroll in this type of program are able to resolve their debt in 2 to 4 years. You’ll no longer be making your monthly payment to your creditors during the program. This will likely adversely affect your creditworthiness. Timberline Financial is respected throughout the industry. We are a member of the debt buyers Association, the American Fair Credit Council, and the International Association of Professional Debt Arbitrators. When you’re trying to reduce your monthly payments and resolve your debts as quickly as possible, you owe it to yourself to work with Timberline Financial.

Frog Diseases And Prevention, How To Prevent Common Illnesses In Your Frog

Frog Diseases And Prevention, How To Prevent Common Illnesses In Your Frog


hey y’all as many from my hectic life
and today we’re going to talk about preventable diseases in frogs many
species of frogs are kept as pets all over the world most frogs tend to be
considered a beginner pet and are relatively easy to care for they tend to
be pretty party but like all pets they can be susceptible to certain diseases
if you find that you have any health concerns about your pet frog
you should definitely contact your veterinarian just to make sure
everything’s all right but most diseases that frogs tend to get
are usually pretty easy to prevent so of course there’s metabolic bone disease
metabolic bone disease is caused typically from a lack of calcium in the
diet since all its own disease is an easy prevention as sensitives just
caused by a lack of vitamin d3 and a lack of calcium frequently a calcium
vitamin d3 supplement every other feeding can help prevent this disease
from happening smile also disease causes soft bones and problems with jobs where
your amphibian won’t be able to another easy fix for this can be the addition of
a UVB light if your frog is compatible with UVB the albino type species and
things cannot cannot handle a lot of extra lighting so make sure that you do
research whether or not your pet can handle a UVB light if they can’t then of
course a calcium vitamin d3 supplement every other feeding is recommended for
your frog another disease that is common among frogs can be toxic out
in German brought a very sensitive skin and they absorb pretty much anything
around them they absorb water through their skin and so if you are not
changing their water bowl frequently and making sure that you’re using two
chlorinated water then they can develop toxic out syndrome signs of this illness
can be spastic jumping cloudy eyes and listless limb even things like smoking
around your frog handling your frogs too much the oils of our skin can be very
dangerous for frogs if they’re exposed to it too much these can all contribute
to toxic out syndrome as well as just keeping there how to Pat well clean and
maintenance and making sure that they get their water change regularly I know
my frogs tend to go to the bathroom in their bowls and so we really don’t want
them sitting and soaking in their own urine and feces infested water certain
illness that we could talk about is parasite so to help prevent your frog
from getting parasites it’s simple to make sure that you’re not feeding any
outside insects that you’re only feeding insects that were bred for the purposes
of feeding and life that were bred for the purposes of feeding and not
something that you caught outside in a field another typical problem of frogs
can be impaction frosting and impacted by accidentally consuming unsafe
substrate if you’re using things like gravel or a moth you want to just be
very careful because if the Frog is eating and they accidentally ingest a
rock or they ingest some of them all these things can cause impaction you
want to make sure that whatever substrate you’re using and
keeping your cane is going to be something that’s safer your frog and I
are too large for them to even try to ingest or small enough it can easily
pass through their system so it won’t cause any obstruction another common
problem found in frogs can be obesity most frog species are gluttonous big
heavy-duty eaters especially if you own something like a Pac Man frog
they will eat themselves almost to death they will disgorge themselves full food
obesity can be a huge problem among frogs if we don’t keep an eye on how
much we are feeding and how often our eating I try to stay on a schedule that
way I know when to feed my frogs and how much according to how large they are if
you do notice that your frog is starting to get kind of fat and starting to have
a harder time moving around you’re probably going to want to either cut
back on feeding either you’re feeding too often or you’re eating too much at
one time so if that case then you’re just going to want to cut back on that a
little bit another huge problem that we see among frogs can be dehydration
dehydration is probably the easiest thing to prevent making sure that in
your frog habitat you’re maintaining proper humidity levels making sure that
you’re spraying down your pain using the chlorinated water and making sure that
you’re providing plenty of fresh water for them every day if you’re doing all
this then your frog more than likely will never have any kind of problems
with dehydration unless there’s another underlying cause another illness that
can cause problems with your frog is gastric overloads if you see your
product something that is too large for them to handle or sometimes if you
be too much at one time in one seating they can sometimes get captured
overloads which can cause a lot of bloating a lot of discomfort in your
frogs and can put pressure on their lungs and other organs that can cause
them a lot of problems long term so you always want to make sure that you’re not
feeding anything too large to your frogs and you’re not over feeding your frogs
too much in one feeding because again most of them have a pretty voracious
appetite and they can overeat and it can make them very ill so we always want to
monitor how much you’re feeding your frogs and how much you should be feeding
your frog in one sitting and how often this will help prevent making sure that
they don’t ever end up with gastric overload so the last one that I want to
talk about is hypothermia and heatstroke now hypothermia is a lot more common
than heatstroke but it is so easy for Venice for hypothermia you just don’t
want the Frog take temperatures to fall below a comfortable level several
difference between the broad sort of temperature range is usually between 65
and 80 degrees some can go a little bit higher than this but overall you want to
make sure that for your species of frog that you’re keeping their tank
temperatures at the correct low you don’t want them to be fluctuating too
much too quickly and you want to make sure that your frogs are always warm
enough now on the opposite side of the spectrum for heatstroke for areas like
where I live where it can get to be 115 degrees outside on a regular basis in
summer if you don’t believe in your air conditioner then that can also be a huge
problem for in frost so you want to make sure that you are keeping your frog in a
cooler area in your house if you do have problems with over keys for keeping your
tanks warm there are all kinds of things in the winter like there’s all kinds
different products out there ceramic heat lamps heating mats that you can put
under the tank or even attach to the side of something and of course there’s
heat lamps like your day and night basking bulbs that can also provide
warmth to your tank depending on what type of species that you have and what
they do best with like the patent and frogs and my tree frogs do better with
either a ceramic heating lamp or a under or an under the tank mass but other
species made you better with a basking bulb it just depends on how sensitive
your it just depends on how sensitive your species of frogs that you’re
keeping as a pet is too light so of course there are still other diseases
that your frogs can get I mean there are viral infections and fungal infections
and bacterial infections that are not very easy to prevent but overall a lot
of these diseases are very preventable so armed with this knowledge you can
have a frog that will have a much longer lifespan and be a lot happier and
healthier overall so that’s all for today’s video you found this information
useful please give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel where I put
videos like this every week thanks for watching guys five you

Stiff Neck Treatment: Best Stiff Neck Pain Relief Easy DIY Relief Neck Pain at Home Natural Remedies

Stiff Neck Treatment: Best Stiff Neck Pain Relief Easy DIY Relief Neck Pain at Home Natural Remedies


Stiff Neck Treatment: Best Stiff Neck Pain
Relief Easy DIY to Relief Pain at Home . By LifeBuzzFeed.com. Please like, subscribe
and share this video to friends and family. Thank you. A stiff neck is a common problem. It often
occurs due to sleeping in an awkward position, sitting in front of a computer for a prolonged
period, or straining a muscle due to bad posture or carrying heavy loads that put too much
pressure on the shoulders. Other causes include anxiety and stress that create tension in
the neck muscles, trauma or injury that affects the neck, and some diseases like rheumatoid
arthritis, meningitis or cancer. The main symptoms are soreness, pain and difficulty
moving the neck, especially when trying to turn the head to the side. At times, a stiff
neck may cause a headache, shoulder pain or arm pain. A stiff neck does not usually indicate a serious
medical problem, but it can hinder your daily activities and make it hard to sleep. Lack
of sleep can make things worse. This problem usually gets better after a few days or a
week. However, you can use some simple lifestyle changes and home remedies to ease the pain
and stiffness. If your condition does not get better within a week or if it occurs with
a high fever, consult your doctor immediately. Here are the top 10 ways to get rid of a stiff
neck. 1. Massage Massage is a good option to treat a stiff
neck. A gentle massage will help relax the muscles while increasing blood circulation.
This in turn will help reduce the stiffness. Moreover, it will help you sleep better. Take
a hot bath or shower to relax your muscles. Slightly warm some olive, coconut or mustard
oil. Apply the oil on the affected area. Massage using firm yet gentle strokes for several
minutes. If you cannot do the massage on your own due to the stiffness, get help from a
friend or a professional massage therapist. 2. Neck Exercises Performing a series of neck exercises can
be highly beneficial for treating a stiff neck. It will relieve tension caused by the
tight, strained neck muscles. Sit up straight, while keeping your body relaxed. Nod your
head forward (toward your chest) and backward (toward the sky). Repeat these motions for
a few minutes. Tilt your head alternately down toward your right shoulder and then toward
your left shoulder. Repeat for a few minutes. Without turning your body, slowly turn your
head and look to the right, then look to the left. Alternate this movement repeatedly for
a few minutes. End your exercise with a few gentle shoulder rolls. Note: Avoid doing any
neck exercise if it hurts too much. To prevent a stiff neck, go swimming on a
regular basis. It improves the overall strength of the neck and back. However, make sure that
you follow the proper swimming techniques and do not overdo your workout. 3. Cold Compresses Soothe a stiff neck with a cold compress.
The cold temperature will help numb pain and limit the buildup of lactic acid, a normal
by product of muscle metabolism which can cause soreness. Wrap some ice cubes in a thin
towel. Hold the compress against the stiff area of your neck for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat
every 2 hours for the first 48 hours. Instead of ice, you can also use a bag of
frozen peas in the same way. Note: Do not apply ice directly on the skin. 4. Heat Therapy If you do not get relief after 48 hours of
using the cold compress, try heat therapy. Heat will increase the blood flow, which in
turn will decrease stiffness. Apply a hot compress on the neck area for at least 10
minutes. Repeat 3 or 4 times a day until you get complete relief. A hot compress can be
in the form of a heating pad, hot water bottle, heat wrap or a hot towel. Also, stand in the
shower and run warm to slightly hot water on your neck for about 5 minutes. Do not turn
or move your neck while doing this. Repeat 2 or 3 times a day. 5. Epsom Salt Epsom salt, made up of the chemical compound
magnesium sulfate, can help ease a stiff neck. It helps regulate the activity of various
enzymes in the body and improves circulation. This in turn reduces muscle tension and stress.
Add 2 cups of Epsom salt to a bathtub full of warm water. Soak in this bathwater with
your neck area submerged for 15 to 20 minutes. Do this up to 3 times a week. Note: Do not
use this remedy if you are kidney problems or diabetes. 6. Peppermint Oil Peppermint oil has menthol that helps soothe
stiff muscles in the neck. Moreover, its analgesic property will help reduce pain and discomfort.
Warm 2 teaspoons of olive oil in the microwave for a few seconds. Add a few drops of peppermint
essential oil to it. Gently massage your neck with this warm oil. Use this remedy twice
daily for a few days. Alternatively, add 2 drops of peppermint oil to a big bowl of cold
water. Soak a washcloth in the water, then place it on the affected area for 10 to 15
minutes. Repeat as needed. Note: Peppermint oil is not suitable for children or those
who have sensitive skin. 7. Apple Cider Vinegar Apple cider vinegar contains antioxidant and
anti-inflammatory properties that help treat a stiff neck. Moreover, it can help prevent
muscle strain and pain related to nutrient deficiencies. Soak a paper napkin in raw,
unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Place it on the affected area. Allow it to sit for a few
hours. Use this remedy twice daily until you feel better. Another option is to add 2 cups
of apple cider vinegar to lukewarm bathwater. Soak in it for at least 15 minutes once daily
until you recover completely. 8. Cayenne Pepper Cayenne pepper is another effective remedy
to get rid of a stiff neck. It contains capsaicin that has analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties,
which help reduce pain and inflammation. Mix 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder in 2 tablespoons
of warm olive oil. Apply this mixture to the affected area, cover with a bandage and leave
it on for a few hours. Do this for a few days. Another option is to massage the affected
area with an over-the-counter cream or lotion that has cayenne pepper or capsaicin as one
of the main ingredients. You can also include cayenne pepper in your cooking to speed up
recovery. 9. Turmeric The anti-inflammatory property of turmeric
can help relieve discomfort caused by a stiff neck. It also helps improve blood circulation.
Mix 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder in 1 cup of milk. Heat it on low for 5 minutes. Allow
it to cool and then add a little honey. Drink it 2 times daily for a few days. Include turmeric
in your daily cooking. Alternatively, you can take turmeric in capsule
or tablet form, but only after consulting a doctor. Note: Turmeric may not be suitable
for those suffering from gallstones or a bile duct obstruction. 10. Acupressure Acupressure is a traditional Chinese treatment
that can help get rid of a stiff neck, especially when it is caused by bad posture. Here, a
therapist applies pressure to specific points to ease pain. Luo Zhen is the name of the
acupressure point found on the back of the hand that can help treat a stiff neck. The
point is located in the depression between the two bones near the knuckles of the middle
and pointer fingers. If your neck is stiff on the right side, then massage the point
on your left hand, and vice versa. Massage this point by applying light pressure into
it with your fingertip. Maintain the pressure for a couple of minutes. In the meantime,
exercise your neck by rotating your head side to side. Additional Tips Try the skin-scraping technique to get rid
of a stiff neck. Lubricate the sore area with a little massage oil and then gently scrape
the skin with the edge of a spoon. Start from the top of your neck coming all the way down
to the top of your shoulders. This Chinese remedy is a type of massage to get the blood
flow to the aching area. As it is difficult to do on your own, you may take a friend’s
help. Better still, get it done by an acupuncturist. Get 7 to 8 hours of sound sleep every night.
Getting enough rest will help your body heal quickly. Do not sleep on your stomach. Try
to sleep on your side or back. Try sleeping without a pillow for a few nights. Make sure
your mattress is firm enough to provide support for your spine and neck. Avoid driving, as
it may aggravate the problem. Avoid putting any strain on the neck muscles, as it will
increase the pain and delay the healing process. Use relaxation techniques to combat emotional
stress that can trigger muscle tension. Practice good posture throughout the day when sitting
or standing. Being overweight puts a strain on all of the body’s muscles, so try to
lose excess weight. Take frequent breaks while at work to reduce stress on your neck. Avoid
crimping your phone between your neck and shoulder. Avoid doing heavy physical exercises
for a week as it may worsen the pain. You are watching: Stiff Neck Treatment. By

For Leaky Gut Syndrome. By LifeBuzzFeed.com. Please like, subscribe and share this video
to friends and family. Thank you. If you suffer from leaky gut syndrome, you’re
overdue to consider adopting a leaky gut diet. Here are the five foods and supplements
to heal your leaky gut. 1. Bone Broth – broth contains collagen
and the amino acids proline and glycine that can help heal your damaged cell walls. I’ve
had many of my patients do a bone broth fast for three days to help heal leaky gut and
cure autoimmune disease. 2. Raw Cultured Dairy – contains both probiotics
and SCFA’s that can help heal the gut.  Pastured kefir, yogurt, amasai, butter and
raw cheese are some of the best. 3. Fermented Vegetables – contain organic
acids that balance intestinal pH and probiotics to support the gut. Sauerkraut, kimchi and
kvass are excellent sources. 4. Coconut Products – all coconut products
are especially good for your gut. The MCFA’s in coconut are easier to digest than other
fats so they work well for leaky gut. Also, coconut kefir contains probiotics that support
your digestive system. 5. Sprouted Seeds – chia seeds, flaxseeds
and hemp seeds that have been sprouted are great sources of fiber that can help support
the growth of beneficial bacteria. But if you have severe leaky gut, you may need to
start out getting your fiber from steamed vegetables and fruit.
Also, consuming foods that have omega-3 fats are beneficial — anti-inflammatory foods
like grass-fed beef, lamb and wild-caught fish like salmon. Top 5 Supplements for Healing Leaky Gut. There are many supplements that support your
digestive health, but I believe the most beneficial leaky gut supplements are l-glutamine, probiotics,
digestive enzymes, aloe vera juice, quercetin, NAG and licorice root.
1. Probiotics are the most important supplement to take because it helps replenish good bacteria
and crowds out bad bacteria. I recommend getting probiotics in both food and supplement form.
I see people all the time only follow part of the protocol in healing their leaky gut
syndrome by removing the damaging irritants. But the part they often leave out is re-inoculating
their gut with beneficial bacteria that will keep bad bacteria at bay.
So load up on BOTH probiotic-rich foods and take AT LEAST 50 billion units of probiotics
daily from a high-quality brand. 2. Digestive enzymes (one or two capsules
at the beginning of each meal) ensure that foods are fully digested, decreasing the chance
that partially digested foods particles and proteins are damaging your gut wall.
3. L-Glutamine is critical for any program designed to heal leaky gut. Glutamine powder
is an essential amino acid supplement that is anti-inflammatory and necessary for the
growth and repair of your intestinal lining. L-glutamine benefits include acting as a protector: coating
your cell walls and acting as a repellent to irritants. Take 2–5 grams twice daily.
4. Licorice Root (DGL) is an adaptogenic herb that helps balance cortisol levels and improves
acid production in the stomach. DGL supports the body’s natural processes for maintaining
the mucosal lining of the stomach and duodenum. This herb is especially beneficial if someone’s
leaky gut is being caused by emotional stress. Take 500 milligrams twice daily.
5. Quercetin has also been shown to improve gut barrier function by sealing the gut because
it supports creation of tight junction proteins. It also stabilizes mast cells and reduces
the release of histamine, which is common in food intolerance. New studies have also
shown its effectiveness in healing ulcerative colitis. Take 500 milligrams three times daily
with meals. If you can follow the above protocol, you
are well on your way to successfully treating your gut for good. You are watching: Leaky Gut Diet: 5 Healing

10 Best Lower Back Stretches for Low Back Pain Relief – Ask Doctor Jo

10 Best Lower Back Stretches for Low Back Pain Relief – Ask Doctor Jo


oh hey everybody it’s Doctor Jo and Remy,
and today I’m gonna show you the top ten low back stretches. so let’s get started. A lot of you asked me how many should I do. generally with stretches you want to hold them for 30 seconds and do three on each side.
number one, pelvic tilt. so you might hear me say pelvic tilt for a lot of
different things, but it really is a great stretch. this one is really going
to loosen up those back muscles and it’s one of my favorites to do. for a supine
pelvic tilt, lie down on the ground with your legs propped up, feet flat on the
ground. and imagine that you’re trying to squish your hand if it was underneath
you. so push down rotate the hips and come back up. number two, the cat dog stretch. again
with the cat and the dog, my favorite because it’s animals it’s really really
great stretch for your low back. you can feel it stretching forwards and
backwards with those two motions and it really loosens up that low back. for the
cat dog stretch, get on all fours. you’re gonna arch your back like a cat and tuck
your chin in and then drop your back down and pick your head up. number three, trunk rotation in supine
or lying on your back. so this one’s really good just to start getting some
rotational movements and your back and your back is supported on the floor so
it’s a nice stretch. for a trunk rotation stretch, bend both knees up and keep your feet flat on the ground. then just rotate your knees to one side trying to keep
the upper part of your body flat and hold that stretch. number four, trunk rotation with a leg
crossover. if just the regular rotation isn’t quite enough stretch for you, if
you bring your leg up and over it’s going to give you an even bigger stretch
and sometimes you’ll feel a little pop in your low back because it’s
readjusting your spine. for a lower back stretch lying down, place one leg
straight out and pull the other one up to about a 90 degree angle and then pull
it across your body. number five, hamstring stretch with a
strap. using a strap or a rope or a dog leash to stretch out your hamstrings is
a great way to get that stretch and just keep those muscles nice and relaxed. for
hamstring stretch in supine with a strap, you can use a belt or a dog leash. take
the belt and put it at the ball of your foot, straighten out your leg as much as
you can. you want that knee to be straight, so if it bends then bring it
back down a little bit. pull your toes towards you and bring it up till you
feel a stretch and hold it. number six, hip flexor stretch off of a
bed. this is a great way to stretch out your hip flexors. if you have knee
problems and you can’t do it really well in a lunge stretch, if you just take your
leg and drop it off the edge of the bed, without falling off, it really stretches
out those hip flexor muscles. for hip flexor stretch off the bed, lie down on
your back on a bed and get close to the edge, but try not to fall off the bed.
bring one leg down off the edge, letting it hang, lie back a little bit and then bring the other knee up towards your chest and
hold that stretch. number seven, a prone press up. so if
you’re on your stomach and you’re pressing up, you get a nice stretch in
your low back in and your abdominals. this is sometimes contraindicated for
certain back conditions, so make sure this is something this is general pain
or maybe a disc issue, and if you’re not quite sure what it is, you might want to
hold off on this one. for a prone press up, lie on your stomach and then put your
hands flat on the ground, and press your upper body up. try and keep your hips
down. so you’re not coming up with the hips, but the hips are down and you’re bending just at your back and then hold it. number eight, a knee a chest stretch. it
does a great job of stretching out that low back, but make sure if you have some
knee problems, don’t put too much pressure on your knees when you’re
stretching. for a single knee to chest, bend both knees up. then take your
hands and grab underneath your thigh and pull towards your chest holding that
stretch. number nine, double knee to chest stretch. so after you do just the single knee, if you bring them both up together, it’s a
really good overall stretch on your low back as well as your upper back too. for a
double knee to chest stretch, prop both knees up. then grab underneath both thighs and pull your knees towards your chest
holding that stretch. number ten, a prayer stretch or Child’s
Pose whichever one you want to call it. this is just a great whole body stretch.
you can get your arms, you can get your upper back, your lower back, your hips, and your knees, so it’s a good one to finish with. for the prayer stretch, start off
sitting on your feet and then you’re going to push your arms straight out in
front of you on the ground, holding the stretch. so there you have it, those were your top
ten low back stretches. if you’d like to help support my channel, make sure and

due to circumstances beyond your control? You may be able to ask the Canada Revenue
Agency to cancel or waive your penalties or interest. Meet Suzanne. Suzanne’s house caught on fire on April
20, which prevented her from filing her tax and benefit return on time. She was charged a late filing penalty. Suzanne prints form RC4288 to apply for taxpayer
relief, due to her unfortunate situation. When applying for relief, you must give the
facts and circumstances that explain your inability to meet your tax obligations. Your request should clearly outline what you
are asking to have cancelled or waived, and for what reason. In the case of a natural or human-made disaster,
such as the fire in Suzanne’s home, you must provide a copy of the insurance
and fire reports with your application. If you’re asking for relief from penalties
or interest, you must send your request within ten years of the tax year or fiscal period. For example, your request made in 2019 must
be related to a penalty for a tax year ending in 2009 or later or interest accrued in 2009
or later. Use the CRA’s electronic services to send
your application for relief as well as all supporting documents. If you’re considering sending a taxpayer
relief request, go to canada.ca/taxpayer-relief

Here’s What Happens In Your Body When You Swallow Gum | The Human Body


– [Instructor] You may have heard from your second grade teacher
that if you swallow gum, it could stay in your stomach forever or worse, it could grow into
a rubber tree in your stomach. Well, that’s true, so don’t do it. (peppy instrumental music) Okay, maybe not. Swallowing chewing gum isn’t
really gonna plant trees in your stomach, but that’s no reason to start doing it regularly. Here’s what happens to your
body when you swallow gum. When you eat standard food,
three processes go to work in your body to turn that food into fuel. The first is obvious, it’s chewing. The process breaks food down into smaller and smaller pieces, increasing the surface area. Meanwhile, saliva coats those
pieces, delivering enzymes that help break down the food. Finally, once swallowed, the stomach acids turn any
remaining food pieces into mush. This lets the food pass through the rest of your digestive track smoothly, but gum doesn’t play by those rules. As much as you chew it, gum doesn’t break into smaller pieces. That’s because it’s gum, duh! Gum has been around much
longer than you think. Ancient Mayans and Aztecs harvested resin from a sapodilla tree. They would dry it into a chaw and chew it to stave off hunger. Even back then, it was also recognized as a breath freshener. However, most gum today
is made from natural or synthetic polymers,
most commonly butyl rubber. It’s used in all kinds of products, including adhesives, fiber
optics, sealants, cling film, paper, fuel, explosives,
sporting equipment, roofing, bottle stoppers, and tires. But don’t worry, the butyl in
your gum won’t make you sick. That’s because it can’t be broken down. The wad of chewing gum
hits your stomach intact. Your saliva enzymes and your stomach acid can’t touch the butyl in the gum base, but that doesn’t mean it just hangs out. Your body is equipped to handle
gum the same way it deals with other food that
it can’t fully digest, like corn and sunflower seeds. (peppy instrumental music) The muscles of your
digestive tract move it along and eventually flush it out of
your system in a day or two, along with everything else. So, no, the gum doesn’t stay in your body when you swallow it, but that’s no reason to start
gulping it down by the pack. The more gum your body has to process, the higher likelihood
that it will build up. This gum mass can potentially
clog your digestive tract, causing an intestinal blockage which can trigger stomach
pain or constipation. There’s a lovely name for
this blockage, a bezoar. An 18-year-old Israeli woman once suffered from a bezoar that blocked her stomach. The problem? Turns out she had been
swallowing at least five pieces of gum every day. The blockage had grown so large
that doctors had to break it into smaller pieces and then fish it out
of her piece by piece. But chewing gum alone isn’t
necessarily bad for you. A couple of small studies
have shown that the act of chewing gum can
actually help relax you, because it can help
reduce levels of cortisol, a common stress hormone, in your saliva. Feel free to unwrap a stick. You won’t be alone, 56%
of Americans chew gum, each about 280 sticks per year. It’s a two billion dollar
industry in the U.S., but be wary of swallowing
it once you’re done. The occasional piece of gum won’t hurt, but with everything else your
body already does for you, why put it through the extra work? Also, don’t spit it out on the ground. That’s just gross. Find a trashcan, like a normal person.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Knee Injury: Roller Bridges

Anterior Cruciate Ligament Knee Injury: Roller Bridges


Lie down on your back and place a roller underneath
your lower legs between your calf and ankles to start. Activate the inner core muscles of the low
back and keep them engaged throughout. To start, curl the roller towards you butt
while you bend your knees. When your heels come over the roller, bridge
your butt up nice and high and hold it at the end for a good long second. Then slowly bring the butt back down moving
the roller towards the feet, reversing the direction of movement with control back to
the start. Repeat this for 10 repetitions doing 3 sets
daily. This exercise is a great way to strengthen
and give more stability to your knee which may be weak or unstable from a previous or
current injury of your Anterior Cruciate Ligament (your ACL) and is great for building your
strength and balance in any sports involving jumping, running or cutting. If you experience any pain or have any problems
doing this exercise consult your local Physiotherapist before continuing.

ibs flare up relief

Are you having an IBS or digestive symptom
flare-up that you’d like to move through faster? Watch this video for the nine top tips from
me and other digestive health coaches to calm your flare. Amanda: I’m Amanda Malachesky, certified functional
health coach and digestive and allergy detective. For the best tips and tricks on how to navigate
digestive and allergy challenges the right way, even if you’ve been told there’s nothing
you can do, subscribe to my channel and make sure to hit the bell to be notified when I
post a new video every Monday. Amanda: If you’re stuck in the bathroom hating
life right now, by the end of this video you’ll be armed with a collection of relief care
techniques to help. I’ve used these tips on myself with my IBS
and with clients, and now it’s your turn. So let’s get started. Amanda: So tip one is to simplify your diet
and go back to known safe foods for you. You always want to make sure that you start
by removing anything that’s fanning the flames of inflammation for your gut. Many of the IBS patients and clients I’ve
spoken with talked about going back to a really easy to digest foods, things like apple sauce,
rice, broth, you know, whatever works for you. Amanda: Additional options might be soups
or purees or well cooked foods. Just make sure that you remove any of your
well known trigger foods, and if you’re not sure about how to figure out what your trigger
foods are, go ahead and watch the other video that I’ve made called, How to identify your
IBS food triggers. Amanda: So tip two is to use binders. So binders grab up toxins in your guts and
prevent them from being reabsorbed or continuing to cause inflammation, and they’re especially
helpful if you trend towards diarrhea with your flares. So binders include things like activated charcoal,
bentonite clay and citrus pectin. Start low and go slow, and back off if you
start to see any constipation. Amanda: Tip three is using Plain-Water Enemas. I know this maybe isn’t commonly used and
you may never have tried this health practice, it’s really helpful to keep your body’s elimination
working really well, especially if you trend towards constipation or if you feel like whatever’s
causing your flare really needs to get out of your belly. So I recommend using them one to two times
per day for one to two days only, and this is because if you use enemas too frequently,
they can deplete your minerals. So if you’ve never tried this before and you’d
like to give it a try, I’ve left a link to some instructions in the comments below. Amanda: Tip four is to reprioritize your tried
and true stress reduction practices. So stress just by itself makes digestive problems
worse. I’m sure you’ve noticed this. So when you’re having a flare, make sure that
you’re prioritizing your normal stress relief practices like meditation, exercise, breathing,
self-hypnosis or your pleasure hobbies. For me, that’s music. Don’t skip this step, I swear. If you don’t already have a regular stress
relief practice, explore some of these options and maybe try something new. If you have a stress relief practice that
you rely on, comment below with one word to share what it is. Amanda: Tip five is to add soothing, demulcent
or carminative essential oils or herbs. There are a lot of herbs or essential oils
that can provide relief care for irritated intestines. You’re probably familiar with some of them. Drinking herbal teas or applying essential
oils that have been diluted in carrier oils directly onto the belly can both be really
helpful. Some of the most common plant medicines to
use for digestion include things like de-glycerized licorice or DGL, Aloe Vera juice or gel, which
you can get usually at a health food store, marshmallow, which is the herbal marshmallow,
cold soak, slippery elm tea, peppermint, ginger, anise and fennel. Experiment to see what works best for your
belly. Amanda: Tip six is to back off on probiotics. So with frequent diarrhea or constipation,
the root culprit can actually be an overgrowth of bacteria in your small intestines called
SIBO and probiotics, especially the wrong ones, can aggravate this problem. During a flare you might experiment with backing
off of your probiotic supplements or probiotic foods like Sauerkraut or Kombucha and see
if this helps. Amanda: Tip seven is to increase antioxidants. So vitamins A, C, E, COQ10 or Glutathione
can help your body’s natural healing and detoxification processes. So beefing these up during a flare can be
helpful. Amanda: Tip eight is to increase hydration. Adequate hydration always helps your body
do the work that it needs to do. So make sure that you’re consuming approximately
half your body weight in ounces daily. Amanda: Tip nine is L-Glutamine. L-Glutamine is an amino acid supplement that
helps repair the gut lining. It’s really easy to use. I’d like to suggest using a powdered supplement,
so you can customize exactly how much feels right. So start low, go slow and just see if that
feels helpful. Amanda: Now you know what to try next time
you’re having a flare with your digestive or food allergy symptoms but what about preventing
these flares in the first place. I’ve written a short guide on how to uncover
the root causes of your symptoms and create your comprehensive personalized road map to
recovery. The link for that’s below. Go ahead and grab it. I also have a private Facebook Group called,
Hope For Healing Chronic Illness where you can get help from me and our community. So come check us out, and if you like this
video, please let me know by liking it below, subscribe and share it with your fellow digestively
challenged friends or family, and comment below with helpful if this video helped you. See you next time.

IBS MEDITATION – IBS pain relief

IBS MEDITATION – IBS pain relief


Close your eyes and get yourself into a
comfortable position. If you’re currently experiencing any pain don’t force
yourself to sit up or lie straight. Allow your body to naturally find a position
that feels good. That might mean you’re hunched over for
now and that’s okay. Let’s use this time to decompress, to relieve the pressure in
your mind and calm your belly. Start by taking some slow breaths in through the
nose and out through the mouth. Slowing down your breath allows your
mind to relax it turns off the stress signals in your brain. Breathe in for a
count of four and out for a count of six. Breathe in and out. Just focus on your breath. Release as
much air as you comfortably can with each out breath. Now allow your breath to fall into a
natural rhythm. Rest your hand gently on your belly, a soothing act of kindness. Rub your belly gently in a clockwise
direction as if soothing a child. If you could offer one message to your
digestive system what would be most helpful? Listen to the message from your inner
voice. And now relax your hands into a
comfortable position. Rest your attention on the rise and fall of your chest or
belly. Feel the power of your breath and release fully into the present moment. Completely let go. Let all tension drain
out of your body and mind. Breathe slowly. Relax more and more deeply. Feel all
tension dissolve and drain away. Allow your body to fully sink into the surface
you are on. Let all your muscles go loose and heavy. You are safe to let go. Take
another slow deep breath and slowly let it out. Imagine a wave of relaxation that starts
at the top of your head and travels down through your body. As the wave of
relaxation passes through your body you’ll feel warm and heavy. Allow
relaxation to flow from the top of your scalp releasing down to the back of your
eyes relaxing your cheeks, mouth, jaw and neck. The relaxation softens your shoulders
allowing them to drop and down through your arms and fingers. You let go as you feel the relaxation
spread deep into your chest, lungs and abdomen. It relaxes your digestive system and
pelvic area. The wave of relaxation loosens up your
hips, thighs, calves, ankles and feet and flows out of your toes tethering you
deep to the earth. Welcome your body’s experience. Accept and gracefully respond to each sensation in your body. Now pay attention to any sensations you feel in
your abdomen. There might be pain, cramping, tingling or
discomfort and if you feel any pain breathe into the area. Don’t turn away or try to get rid of it.
Tensing your body will make the pain feel worse. Soften the area to the best
of your ability. Visualize a light within your abdomen
glowing radiant and warm. Feel it spreading and radiating, shining its
healing light to all the surrounding muscles and organs. Breathe in this wonderfully radiant
light and say silently to yourself, ‘healing light and compassion is flowing
through me and radiating to everything around me’. Feel that warmth spread, it releases the
tightness in your muscles. You find yourself not needing to hold on so tight.
Opening up!. The space within your stomach expanding. If you have any pain direct
this healing light into the area of discomfort and as you breathe out the
light will absorb the pain. Now that light shining in your torso will focus
its warmth on your upper abdomen just below your chest. Invite your attention
to the physical sensations in your upper abdomen. Allow yourself to give each
sensation your full attention. If you can, let go of any tension in these muscles. This top area is where the diaphragm
lies which is important for your breath. Let go of any tension you may be holding
there. The stomach lives up in this upper
abdomen area. Allow the light to shine on your stomach. Feel the warmth as the
light relaxes the muscles. Fully appreciate and thank the stomach for all
the work that it does. Release the grip around your ribs and allow your breath
to fall into a natural rhythm and notice the peaceful feeling in your upper
abdomen. Now move the healing light inside your abdomen to the area just
above your belly button. Look inward. Notice as any tension melts away with
the warm relaxing light. This area is where your small and large intestines
live. Feel full relaxation of the small intestine as the light shines on its
walls. Give thanks for its job of absorbing the nutrients and minerals of
your food in a way that keeps you healthy. Trust that the small intestine
will do its job properly and so you can relax your grip. Let go of the natural
instinct to pull in the tummy and feel the release. Let your tummy hang out, it’s
safe to do so. The muscles can relax their grip and
notice the difference between tension and relaxation. When your tummy is fully
relaxed your whole body can feel the relaxation. Now the light moves its
warmth to the large intestine. It has the important job of absorbing water and
removing waste from your body. As the light touches the large intestine you
can see the walls of this tube healing. This resets the timing and functioning
of your large intestine and you no longer have to concern yourself with any
uncomfortable sensations. You feel content and at ease. Finally focus your healing light inside
the lower part of your abdomen below your belly button. Look for any
sensations in and around your lower abdomen. Try your best to focus on these
sensations without judgment. Allow those sensations to be and relax . This is where
your rectum is located feel the warmth from the light as it fully soothes this
area and the bowels are functioning with ease. The bowels are reset to a regular
pattern. Now you can feel full relaxation in your lower abdomen, midsection and
upper abdomen. Release all tension. Feel the muscles loosen and any knots unravel. Let it all go. Release all tension. Even when you feel fully relaxed try to
go a little bit more. As you relax your stomach muscles it triggers a signal to
your brain that you are safe and feel calm. It allows you to be more open and
receptive to new challenges, stress and facing fears. Now imagine a glowing
golden light that bursts like a sparkler above your head and surrounds your
entire body. Feel it … sense it … enjoy its protective powers. Feel your muscles
soften, they feel warm where the light touches. Feel any pain dissolved, all
healed and functioning as it should. With relaxation everything flows more easily,
your breath, your digestive system, your circulation, your mental state your
thoughts, allowing your body and mind to move freely. You feel optimistic. Now let
your breath flow naturally without changing it. And one last time let’s scan your body to
identify any areas of lingering tension. Is your tummy soft and relaxed? Are your
shoulders down away from your ears? Is your jaw loose with your teeth
slightly parted?Let go of any tension and feel your entire body relax. Now
that you feel fully relaxed and calm in the knowledge that your digestive system
is fully functioning the way it should, let’s finish with two affirmations.
Repeat silently to yourself ‘I trust that my body is in balance and in complete
harmony with the natural world’. ‘I love and accept my body just the way
it is’. Now that your body is relaxed and healing itself, it’s time to return to
wakefulness. Feel your body and mind become aware of your surroundings. When you are ready bring yourself back
to the feelings in your body and bring your attention back into the room. Gently
begin to move your fingers and toes and on an inhalation stretch your body
however it wants to. And in your own time gently open your eyes and enjoy the rest
of your day feeling refreshed, peaceful and in a clear state of mind.
