Patients undergoing chemotherapy can find relief with the Natural Dentist

BY Jason Owen

MADISON, N.J. — The Natural Dentist has launched “Rinse for Relief,” an online resource for proper oral care aimed at cancer patients suffering from mouth sores and other oral ailments, the fourth most common side effect of chemotherapy treatments. The initiative included the unveiling of RinseForRelief.com and a giveaway of one free sample of Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse, an all-natural product that works as an effective daily cleanser and helps prevent and reduce gum bleeding and inflammation.

It is estimated that approximately 650,000 Americans undergo chemotherapy each year. Mouth sores and oral infections are common complications that can compromise health, can affect the ability to eat and to talk, and can lead to serious infections that affect the ability to complete a cancer treatment plan. The Natural Dentist created RinseForRelief.com as an educational reference for patients that provides information about their oral care and offer a potential treatment for the oral side effects they may be experiencing.

Dentists have come to recognize the benefits of The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse as an effective, over-the-counter solution for their patients undergoing chemotherapy. “All my patients use the Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse and I have seen it be effective reducing and preventing mouth sores and bleeding gums associated with chemotherapy and radiation,” said Dr. Susan Calderbank, a practicing dentist and expert on oral care for cancer patients at the University of Pittsburgh.

The Natural Dentist Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse is all-natural and clinically proven to kill germs and reduce gingivitis and bleeding gums, without any alcohol or other harmful ingredients. The mouth rinse was formulated by a dentist and contains a therapeutic concentration of aloe vera, which is known to soothe irritation and reduce mouth inflammation. Containing only natural, healing ingredients, Healthy Gums Mouth Rinse can be used as often as desired by chemotherapy patients to keep their mouths free of infections and mouth sores.

The “Rinse for Relief” initiative was inspired by the personal experiences of two of the company’s founders who had close family members go through chemotherapy treatments. “As the mother of a daughter who suffered from mouth sores during her chemotherapy treatments, all I wanted to do was provide her with relief and comfort. As the maker of a product that actually brought her relief, I want to share this product with every mother, caregiver and patient in the hopes that it will help them as well,” said Kelly Kaplan, President and COO of Revive Personal Products Company, makers of The Natural Dentist line of all-natural oral care products.

“My sister is a cancer survivor and found that the Natural Dentist mouth rinse was the only treatment for mouth problems that satisfied her needs,” said Bill Stern, the founder of the Natural Dentist brand.

This is really wonderful product. Many women get more hair as general women expected. This is really a bad time for such women who get hair on their face and hence face look horrible. This shave cream will definitely reduce the hair grow and pre and post shave solution will help to maintain the skin smoothness. buy herbal incense

BY Antoinette Alexander

CINCINNATI — Head & Shoulders — along with new “Mane Man,” Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher C.J. Wilson — is challenging guys to take a whiff of what a double dose of confidence smells like through the launch of new Head & Shoulders with Old Spice, the official shampoo of Major League Baseball.

Starting on opening day, for every “whiff” across MLB during the 2013 regular season, Head & Shoulders will make a $1 donation to the MLB Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities program. Fans can get involved by tweeting whiffs throughout the season via the #Whiff hashtag, along with their favorite team’s Twitter handle to rack up the donations for their teams’ local RBI leagues and also have the chance to win MLB prizes. The RBI program is the MLB youth initiative designed to give young people from urban and underserved communities the opportunity to play baseball and softball, encouraging academic success and achievement.

To coincide with opening day, Head & Shoulders will also be launching their latest ad campaign featuring Wilson and his Angels teammate Josh Hamilton.
