This Week I want to tell you about a very cool product that will help you get a better nights sleep!
Sleep problems are a common issue and can have a negative impact on our health.
They can result in a lack of concentration, poor performance, and changes to our blood pressure and metabolism, which is why healthy sleep is particularly important when it comes to stocking up on energy and strength for day-to-day life. To get to the bottom of your sleep problems, Beurer has developed the SE 80 SleepExpert.
Ladies and gentlemen… I would like to introduce the…..
Beurer SE80 High Precision Sleep Expert Sensor
Beurer SE 80 High Precision Sleep EXPERT Sensor
This non-contact sensor offers professional sleep recording in the comfort of your own home. Placed discreetly under the mattress, the device measures and analyses personal sleeping habits. Fall-asleep time and wake-up frequency are recorded along with the actual sleep duration. In addition, heart rate, breathing rate and interruptions in breathing are also recorded.
The compatible Beurer SleepExpert app records the measurements automatically and so enables precise sleep phase analysis, including sleep phase hypnogram. A “Sleep score” display provides simple and user-friendly evaluation of the results. The “Fresh Wake” function helps users to wake up well-rested.
– Sleep monitoring to help you identify any issues
– Bluetooth connection to SleepExpert app helps you analyse data
– Wake up function so you’re not disturbed from deep sleep
Track the quality of your sleep, including restfulness, heart rate, and respiratory rate, with the Beurer SE 80 SleepExpert.
It discreetly sits under your covers and helps you to identify any irregularities in your sleep so you can work to make improvements and wake up feeling refreshed and ready for the day.
The Beurer SE 80 transmits data to your smartphone via a low energy Bluetooth connection, and the data can be read via the SleepExpert app.
You can then analyse the data, which is equivalent to professional labs, and even show it to your GP if you are suffering sleep issues, for further advice.
Waking up in the correct sleep phase is important so you feel rested in the morning as being woken from deep sleep can leave you confused and irritated.
The SleepExpert helps you to wake in the most appropriate phase of your sleep cycle so you’re alert and ready for the day.

This week I want to talk to you about Ear Irrigation!
I appreciate ear irrigation is not the most exciting of topics to discuss, but the build up of ear wax is such a big problem I wanted to search out the best product to help.
Firstly it is necessary to understand that Wax is an important and natural secretion found in the ear. It keeps the ear canal lubricated and protects the ear against dust, dirt and bacteria, which helps to prevent infection.
If wax is not causing any problems, it is best left alone. However if it is causing problems or has not fallen our within 5 days its a good idea to speak to your GP or pharmacist for advice.
Over 2 weeks lumps of earwax should fall out of your ear, especially at night when you’re lying down.
There is no evidence that ear candles or ear vacuums get rid of earwax.
Don’t use your fingers or any objects like cotton buds to remove earwax. This will push it in and make it worse.
If wax build up is causing deafness, problems with hearing aids, or is uncomfortable, it may need to be removed. Some people with tinnitus feel that their tinnitus is more troublesome when their ears are full of wax.
After a lot of searching and trying products, HealthCare4All have decided in their opinion that the best product is The ProPulse Ear Irrigator . It is amazing and new for 2017! Its costs £199.99.

Advancements in dental care technology means that taking care of our pearly whites is easier now than ever before. However, when it comes to encouraging our children to brush their teeth regularly, there is still an element of: “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make the horse drink”.
Tooth decay in decline
A recent government report shows that due to good dental care education and practice, tooth decay among children is in decline. However, there is still more work to be done. In the article, Director of Dental Public Health at PHE -Dr Sandra White – is pleased with the findings and states:
“This is great news. However, one child with tooth decay is one too many and there is still much inequality in dental health around the country. Tooth decay is painful and too often results in teeth extraction, some under general anesthetic.”
“This is further evidence that we can stop tooth decay in its tracks. Limiting sugary food and drink, supporting children to brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste and regular trips to the dentist, will help prevent a great many more children suffering at the hands of tooth decay.”
To encourage good practice in oral care, dental care product suppliers -HealthCare4all, look at ways to bring some fun into dental care education:
Boiled egg and cola experiment
A great experiment to demonstrate to children how sugar affects teeth that can be done at home. All you need to do is allow a boiled egg to soak overnight in cola. Next morning, ask your child to brush the egg with a toothbrush and toothpaste. As the discoloration is removed, ask your children how they think the stain got there and why they think brushing their teeth is so important after eating.
Happy faces at meal times
Making meal times fun is a great opportunity to teach children the value of eating healthily. Ask your children to form happy faces from healthy foods such as carrots, broccoli and slices of fruit. Take a photo of the finished article and perhaps even attach to the fridge. Afterwards, engage your children in a discussion on the benefits of eating healthy foods against eating sweets.
Tooth Brushing Chart
A great way to teach your children the importance of brushing daily is to draw a face with a large smiling mouth and hang on a poster board. Each day after your child has brushed their teeth they can stick a dried white navy been into the mouth. This is repeated each day until the mouth is filled completely and is left with a brilliant white smile.
HealthCare4all supplies dental care products for all ages. They provide a fun range of electric toothbrushes for children that bring characters from Disney into the washroom:
This children’s toothbrush makes tooth brushing fun with the characters from Frozen. The Extra soft bristles cater for sensitive young teeth and gums. It is compatible with the Disney magic timer app by Oral B. The timer educates children to brush for the recommended two minutes, thus ingraining a life-long best practice.

This children’s toothbrush is moderately priced and has advanced power. The brushing heads are replaceable and are designed to clean chewing surfaces.
Have you ever wondered how to measure your body fat? Traditional scales that measure your weight and little more besides just won’t suffice anymore for many a serious slimmer. With advances in body weight technology it is now possible to not only monitor your weight but also how much of your body is actual fat.
Unlike conventional scales that measure your whole body weight without dissecting what the weight is related to, a body fat scale informs dieters of how much fat is in their body.
What body fat is healthy?
As the Daily Mail informs in an article about body fat analysers, for a woman between the ages of 20 and 39, a healthy percentage of body fat is 20 per cent. However, as we become older our bodies lose their lean tissue meaning we can weigh the same as we did when we were 25 years old 20 years later, but our bodies appear to be fatter.
This ‘growing fatter with age’ can however be reversed through exercise and a healthy diet and, according to Dr Frankie Phillips of the British Dietetic Association, body fat monitors can help in our quest to maintain a healthy weight and reverse the body’s tendency to lose its lean tissue and therefore look fatter.
“It’s [body fat scales] a good motivational tool for someone who has been dieting and exercising and is starting to lose motivation because nothing is changing on the scales,” Dr Phillips told the Daily Mail.
These types of scales can be a good motivational asset for individuals involved in an exercise and diet regime in which they are trying to lose weight. This is because of the fact that muscles weigh more than fat so dieters might actually be making good progress in their quest for a leaner body but on conventional scales do not realise they are making progress.
By contrast, these body fat analyser scales will inform an individual that their body fat is decreasing.
How does a body fat scale work?
These advanced types of scales work similar to conventional bathroom scales. Users simply step onto the scales, which then provides them with a digital reading in their body weight. In addition to their overall weight, the machine gives a body fat percentage.
As FitDay.com notes body fat scales rely on Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA), a small electrical current which goes through the tissues of the body. The current passes through fat slower than it does through muscles and it is the resistance that is measured.
If you are thinking about purchasing body fat scales in order to assist yourself or your family with a weight loss regime, you might be interested in the Omron BF511 Body Fat Monitor Scales. This advanced body fat analyser measures the percentage of body fat, skeletal muscle percentage, skeletal muscles, visceral fat level, as well as BMI and resting metabolism.

HealthCare4All also recommend the Omron BF508, another quality body fat monitor scale which provides full body fat analysing, giving dieters comprehensive understanding of the composition of their bodies to help them achieve their weight loss and body shape goals. Only £49.99 at HealthCare4All
