Why Is No-Poo a No-Go?  

Posted by: Rhona Reid On May 3, 2018 12:00 pm

 
Now don’t get us wrong, we’re often in favor of ditching the chemicals and trying out a natural alternative.  Dropping the foaming agent SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and potentially dangerous parabens in regular shampoo might be worth a try, but what do you replace them with?  

Is your shampoo good for you?
Co-Wash For Curlies

Some people go down the co-washing route; skipping the shampoo altogether and washing their hair using conditioner.  It can have spectacular results on certain hair types (curlies blessed with coarse, thick hair often love it), but it’s definitely not for everyone.

Soda and Silicones

So how about washing your hair with baking soda?  It’s not exactly new…your grandmother might well have tried it!  The

A Wrinkle in Time?  Slow Down the Aging Process with a Water Ionizer!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 25, 2018 7:00 am

“You’re only as old as you feel,” goes the saying.  It’s an empowering little motto, opening up the possibility of perhaps not reversing time, but slowing it up a little.  

I’m sure that wrinkle wasn’t there yesterday…

But how do we achieve that?  Check out the first of our two-part mini-series on how Tyent Water can help you to become one of those people who hears comments like: “You’re how old?  Wow! You look great!” every time you leave the house.  

Turn Back Time?

To look great on the outside, you need to feel great on the inside.  That might seem obvious, but if you routinely skip a full night’s sleep, don’t exercise and eat too many processed foods, there’s

Detox Your Veggies!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 5, 2018 12:00 pm

We all know that we need to eat plenty of fruit and vegetables to stay healthy.  Although most types of frozen, canned and dried produce count towards your daily total, nothing beats the taste of fresh, seasonal fruit and veggies.

How clean are your vegetables?
What’s On Our Veggies?  

But have you wondered about how those lovely tomatoes, salad leaves and bell peppers are produced?  If you buy organic or grow your own, then you can skip this. However, if – like so many of us – you tend to grab what’s on offer or looks great in the store display or farmer’s market, then read on.  

Did you know that much of the deliciously tempting produce on offer is

Hair’s Some Good News About Your Water Ionizer!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On April 3, 2018 7:00 am

Did you know that your hair is acidic?  True story. Whether it’s short, curly, bedhead or a glossy mane: hair has a pH range of around 4 – 5.  

Fed up of fighting your hair?
Natural Balance and Bad Hair Days

When a shampoo is advertised as being “pH balanced,” it means that it has a similar pH to your hair.  Great right? That means that you’re not throwing out the natural balance of your crowning glory with nasty ol’ chemical shampoos?

Maybe not, but what about your water?  Most tap water sits between a neutral pH of around 7 and a more alkaline 8.5.  Rinsing your hair with water that isn’t pH balanced – even if your shampoo is

Turbo Charge Your Spring Clean

In a recent blog, we looked at the dangers of using chemical cleaners around the home and how Turbo water from your water ionizer can do the job just as well, without any toxic fumes.  

Yep. It’s that time of year again.
What Kind of Spring-Cleaner Are You?  

Many people like to carry out a spring clean at this time of year.  For some, it’s little more than bundling away winter coats and shoes; for others, it means systematically going through each room, carrying out a deep clean and throwing out or recycling whatever isn’t nailed down (Hi, Mom!).

Tyent Spring-Cleaning Tips!

To get you into the spring-cleaning spirit, we’ve dusted down and buffed up some brilliant

America Brings Home Report Card; Gets a D

Posted by: Rhona Reid On March 1, 2018 12:00 pm

America’s Water Infrastructure Report Card for 2017 is in and it’s fair to say that there’s room for improvement. It’s not exactly new news to talk about the state of America’s pipelines and how millions of Americans are drinking water that might be harmful to their health, but the report card highlights another aspect of the problem – the waste.

Must try harder?
Pipe Down

Many pipes were laid during the early-mid 20th century and have a lifespan of 75100 years.  There are an estimated 240,000 pipeline fractures every year and with an average annual repair rate of 0.5%, the repairs will take around 200 years to complete, by which time the pipelines will have been around for

Official: Housework Might Be Harming Your Health

Posted by: Rhona Reid On February 27, 2018 7:00 am

“Housework?  It can’t kill you, but why take the risk?” goes the fridge magnet/meme/Birthday card for your sister.  

But within that little lol, is a grain of truth.  Research just published in the American Thoracic Society’s Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine has found that using chemical-laden cleaning products every day has a detrimental effect on lung health.  If you use cleaning sprays regularly, then the impact can be the equivalent of smoking a full pack of cigarettes every day.  

Breaking News:  Cleaning really is bad for your health.
The Dangers of Chemical Cleaners

The research is pretty thorough, with scientists following 6000 test subjects over a 20-year period.  The findings observe that the chemicals inhaled from everyday

A Raw Deal?

Posted by: Rhona Reid On January 18, 2018 12:00 pm

The latest trend that seems to be gathering attention in 2018 is the craze for drinking so-called “raw water.”

Raw Water is not necessarily pure water.

When a small, Oregon-based start-up company started selling “pristine mountain spring water” to people in the San Francisco area, they tapped into the fashionable notion that the more “natural” something is, then the better for you it will be.

What is “Raw Water”?

Raw water is, quite simply, water that springs from the earth; or in this particular case, from “an ancient aquifer.” It is completely untreated and unfiltered.

One of several companies selling raw water around the country says that filtering and treating water to remove contaminants “disrupts healthy bacterias” that would otherwise

Why Your Dentist Dreads Christmas!

Posted by: Rhona Reid On December 29, 2017 12:00 pm

Okay, maybe not dreads Christmas.  But dentists are hyper aware of the damage that sweet things such as candy and soda do to our teeth.  

Therefore Christmas, arriving as it does, on a fresh wave of sweetness in the wake of that great testament to candy itself, Halloween, poses all kinds of threats to our teeth unless we take extra good care of them.

This is the stuff of nightmares for your dentist!
The Usual Suspects

As well as sugar, many people often consume more alcohol than usual around the holidays.  Alcohol attacks teeth in two ways: firstly with the sugar it contains and secondly with acid, which damages enamel.  

So you clean your teeth and visit your dentist.
