Let’s start from the beginning. When we are born and the basic things we need for survival. The first thing is Oxygen. We cry and take our first breath. 

Oxygen we cannot survive without oxygen 

Permanent brain damage begins after only 4 minutes without oxygen, and death can occur as soon as 4 to 6 minutes later

Water a person can survive without water for about 3 days.

Nutrition  A person can survive 3  weeks without food

Sleep  After only three or four nights without sleep, you can start to hallucinate

The longest recorded time without sleep is approximately 264 hours or just over 11 consecutive days. Although it’s unclear exactly how long humans can survive without sleep, it isn’t long before the effects of sleep deprivation start to show. 

Abraham Maslow is a psychologist who studied these basic needs.

Maslow found that all human beings have five levels of needs to be satisfied and self-fulfilled he called them the needs in the hierarchy; a list from the lowest to the highest.

1: Physical Survival Needs

The first and most basic of all needs are those to do with physical survival. The need for oxygen, food, drink, sleep, and shelter. If a person cannot satisfy this basic survival need it dominates their thoughts and concerns. A person who is cold, sick, or hungry will not be very interested in learning or working.

2: Physical Safety Needs

Once the physical survival needs are met, a new set of needs emerges. The physical survival needs still exist, but having these needs satisfied regularly, a person becomes aware of the next level of human needs to feel safe from personal danger and threats; being deprived of this results in fear. When a person is fearful, all concentration goes to calming the fear with no thought for any other task. 

3: Love and Belonging Needs

Once the physical survival and safety needs are being regularly met, a need for love, affection, and belonging begins to emerge. Level 3 needs result from the fact that human beings are sociable and need relationships with others. Maslow states: “The person … will hunger for affectionate relationships with people in general for a place in the group.”

People deprived at this level seem bored and joyless, even if they are doing well at their chosen tasks. They have feelings of loneliness, pain, sadness, separation, and unworthiness.

4: Self-esteem Needs

With a few exceptions, people in our society have a need to feel valued and to count for something. This is called the need for esteem. It is a degree of self-respect and respect from others. Self-respect includes the need for confidence, achievement, independence, and freedom. Respect from others includes recognition, attention, and appreciation.

5: Self-fulfilled 

If the first four needs are being met, a new one will probably develop the need for self-fulfillment. This is to become more what a person can be: to develop all aspects – physical, social, emotional, and spiritual. Among the characteristics of self-fulfilled people is awareness of living, completeness, joyfulness, unforgettable moments or periods of joy, unity, and understanding.

We do worry about being fulfilled until all our other needs have been met. Where do you think you are on Maslow’s chart?

I think many of us feel our basic needs are being met. Until we get sick or our health is being challenged. Many of us are not getting a say about our bodies and we are being left to deal with the consequences of our choices. We are seeing vaccine injuries but they are not being called that. I will have to live with the fact that I chose to give my daughter a vaccine I knew could potentially harm her.  I knew my family history and what has happened in the past but I listened to the Dr. who said listen to the science. Well, there is no way of knowing for sure. Our family has allergies and sensitivities to sulfites, nitrites, and preservatives I Know they put them into vaccines. Two weeks after giving her the vaccine she started showing signs it began with debilitating headaches, that then affected her eyesight and her arm would go numb. We now have to watch what she eats very closely. She is now more sensitive than ever to foods and products. I get to live with that because I let them give her the vaccine. When you talk to Dr.s they say it is very rare that will happen. I knew it was not only possible it was very probable due to family history and past experience! I did not follow my gut! I did not want to be judged. Don’t be bullied into something you know is not a good idea for you or a loved one. Again learn from my mistakes. Just because we are being told something is safe does not mean it is.  I can’t undo this decision or the side effects.

When she was little her Dad and I were told we needed to give our baby a Hepatitis B vaccine when she was one day old, a series of three shots before she had a chance to develop her own immunities. What? We said no.   I had that series of shots when I was in my twenties. She has had them now, but she did not get them until she was a teenager. I gave her all the shots that were required just not on the timeline or how they were recommended in case she had a reaction. She had a reaction. I was correct and glad I followed my gut even though the Dr.s and nurses were mad at me when I brought my daughter in for her shots.  I was threatened by the school to have my daughter suspended if I did not get the shots on their timeline. I held strong finished the vaccines on my timeline. With this vaccine, I got tired of fighting. Knowing she had a reaction in the past. and listening to ignorant people’s opinions of what they feel is right with what is going on in the world I gave in.  Why can’t you just do what everyone else does?  So I did. Just because everyone is doesn’t mean it is right for everyone.  I get to live with them for the rest of my life. I took the easy way out. Knowing my daughter has to live with the consequences of my choices not knowing what will trigger an episode. She will never have another vaccine as long as she lives.  Another one could kill her. each time the reaction gets worse.

Take ownership of your family’s health. Listen to your gut. Don’t let others’ opinions bully you into doing something you know is not right. I hesitated to talk about this. Vaccines are so controversial much like Fluoride and sealants. This is our personal story and I got tired of fighting. So I gave in and gave her the shot. I can’t undo the side effects. I can only go from here and make better choices for my family. 

This is why I am going back to the basics: foods that are grown from nature, staying away from processed and filled with sugary foods. Questioning medications for treating certain things. Protocols are made for the majority. We don’t fall into the category. Most of our family have some kind of sensitivity whether to food, medications, or vaccines. When I got divorced I stopped cooking as much and we were eating out more. That also was not a good decision. Now We don’t have a choice we need to go back to natural back to basics and old school.

Anyone who wants to learn basic living skills- There are books, podcasts, and videos Created to both inspire and instruct, that return us to an era before power saws and fast-food restaurants so you can rediscover the pleasures and challenges of a more self-sufficient, economical, and healthy lifestyle. We can’t all, raise chickens, and have farm animals but we can make treats such as blueberry peach jam or ice cream. Growing our own garden or going to our local farmer’s market gives us some control of our food source. 

There are simple things we can do to take back control. Fruits and vegetables, shopping on the perimeter of the grocery store. Staying away from processed sugary foods that cause inflammation.

I talk about the mouth and how it is a window and connected to the health of our bodies.  I feel we have not been taught the importance of what we should be doing from the start to take care of our mouths and what to look for as soon as our babies are born. 

Our mouths are a part of our body that we do not address until we have a problem but when we wait until there is an obvious problem before we look at the mouth it is going to be more costly and take more time to fix. 

Having a clear understanding of why … is important to navigate your way to optimal oral health and ultimately systemic health.

Babies are nose breathers for the first three months. How are you breathing? How is everyone in your family breathing?

Are you removing or disrupting the plaque in your mouth 2 times a day?

The most common reason as to why we brush our teeth is to remove plaque.

Dental plaque is a soft, sticky, colorless film that contains millions of bacteria that are constantly forming on our teeth. Plaque is the main cause of cavities, gingivitis, and gum (periodontal) disease.

If the plaque has turned a yellow-orange color along the gum line…you have missed that area for days, you will need to brush longer to get it off and the gums will bleed when you brush them.

You want healthy teeth and gums

Prevent gingivitis and gum disease…. when you brush your teeth twice a day you reduce your chances of getting inflammation and bleeding gums.

Your teeth can’t talk, or can they?  They bleed to say “help me you are not brushing me enough”

Fresh Breath:

Brushing your teeth regularly prevents bacteria from building up. Bacteria and plaque can cause gingivitis, gum disease, and bad breath.

No one wants to kiss someone with bad breath. Brushing is the #1 most effective way to get rid of bacteria in your mouth. Bacteria can be passed to the person you are kissing.

Healthy body:

Brushing regularly reduces your risk of having a heart attack or stroke and from the plaque and bacteria in your mouth traveling into the bloodstream, increasing the risk of buildup in the arteries.

Bleeding gums have been shown to increase the chance of premature birth and low birth weight. If you are pregnant, keep in mind that the bacteria in your mouth can enter the bloodstream of your baby, putting them at risk too.

Prevent Dementia:

Studies show that Poor Oral Health increases your risk of developing dementia by 30% to 40%.

Prevent Decay:

The acids in plaque weaken the enamel surface of the teeth, creating cavities. Brushing Helps Get Rid of That bacteria!

Brushing your teeth just a few minutes a day is one of the simplest, yet most effective ways to fight bacteria and plaque and prevent cavities.

Save money:

Brushing your teeth twice a day will not only improve your dental health when your teeth and gums are healthy you won’t need as much dental work … which will lower your dental bills.

Make someone’s day:

All it takes is a smile to make someone’s day

Brushing your teeth gives you the confidence to smile. You may never know what the chain reaction of one smile is.

Most people brush their teeth twice a day! Or do they? We tell ourselves we brush twice a day but do you really? The proof is in the pudding or should I say plaque.

I see people every day who tell me they are brushing twice a day for two minutes…but their mouth tells a different story.

Teeth should be brushed at least twice a day. Most people think just running the toothbrush over the surface of their teeth is enough. But it is not.

Why we brush, how we brush, how long we brush; is of critical importance to our overall health.

If you do not remove plaque with daily brushing and flossing it hardens into tartar also called calculus. Calcified or hardened plaque must be scaled off and removed by a dental professional.

Everyone has a buildup of plaque in their mouth, if you don’t brush often plaque can lead to inflammation of the gums known as gingivitis which is the first stage of gum disease.

Angling your toothbrush at a 45% angle and brushing the gums and teeth at the same time is the best way to ensure you remove the plaque and bacteria. It does not end there. Plaque is invisible so how do you know if you are removing it? By staining the plaque at least once a week, to see how you are actually doing.  You may need to do this every day until you are confident in the outcome and you know how you need to brush to get all the surfaces clean to prevent disease.

These are only some of the reasons tooth brushing is important and should be a part of your daily routine.

Drink water test the Ph of your drinks and your mouth and watch what you eat how much sleep everyone is getting

It won’t hurt to get back to the basics and make sure the 4 basic needs are met to be and stay living a healthy life.
