I tried the Crest Whitestrips a second, on the top teeth, about 2 weeks ago. That time I got the same pings as the first time (read the first time report), but didn’t feel the strong tightness in shoulders/neck or nausea of the first time.
However, since then I have been sick with a tenacious cold. So even though the cold is most likely unrelated to the Whitestrips, I have a bad feeling about them.
I stay as healthy as possible by maximizing the health-promoting things I put in my body–organic food, mostly veggies–and minimizing the not good things. And with my dental care, I’ve been as non/low-toxic as possible. Unfortunately, these Whitestrips deviate from that. They don’t feel compatible with my commitment to sustainable health.
So I’m shelving the Whitestrips. Vanity loses at this point.
All braces newbies! Go to your local Walgreen’s (if you have one) and invest in a Magic Bullet! They are only $49.99 after you mail in a $10 rebate. And you don’t have to wait to get it shipped from somewhere else.
Before I get too carried away, What is the Magic Bullet? you ask?
It’s the braces wearer’s best friend. Friendly mushy food quick and easy, with lower maintenance cleaning than using a blender. Read my earlier post where I expounded the virtues of this infomercial product.
Oh, I plan to give my Magic Bullet to my friend, who is planning on getting braces soon. So, if you get one, be sure to pass on the joy. (Putting in my plug for living as sustainably as possible.)
OK, this has nothing to do with braces, but I’m so happy about this, I can forget about my braces annoyances. Plus I’m all about sustainability and he’s the man to bring this to wider attention.
My friend gave me a fun present the other day. Peace of Mind gum from Origins. (Nice to see they have large refill portions; in line with my sustainability-conscious living.)
I just saw the little canister on the shelf and popped two refreshing gumballs into my mouth. And am chewing with my still-braces-free teeth.
To the little things that can bring a smile!
