Tamara Mariea Comments on Recent Article and Anticipated EPA Report

“Autism and learning disability rates in children have rapidly risen over the last two decades,” according to Tamara Mariea, in reference to previous Environmental Protection Agency reports. A new, long anticipated Environmental Protection Agency report , according to Tamara Mariea, will contain a list of pollutants. Tamara Mariea said that many of the pollutants on this roster are believed to contribute to neurological disorders and may be involved in the etiology of neurodevelopmental disorders.

Tamara Mariea is the founder and operator of Internal Balance, a private wellness practice in Brentwood, Tennessee. Since 2000, Tamara Mariea and Internal Balance have helped hundreds of clients, earning her accolades from some of the biggest names in professional sports and country music. As well, Tamara Mariea has successfully worked with clients ranging from children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders to adults with the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

“This anticipated report is the result of an ongoing three-year study,” said Tamara Mariea, citing a recent investigative article by Shelia Kaplan. The purpose of the study was to determine what chemicals are neurotoxicants, which can potentially damage a fetus and a developing infant brain, explained Tamara Mariea. “The roster of pollutants is believed to found in everything from household products, to drinking water, to medicine,” commented the Internal Balance and wellness expert Tamara Mariea. “Shelia Kaplan’s article stated and in many ways may confirm what some public health activists have long believed: that the many chemicals listed are dangerous to the public,” added Tamara Mariea.

The chemicals, explained Tamara Mariea, are found in common everyday household products. Tamara Mariea stated that the article entitled Risky Business: EPA Builds List of Potentially Dangerous Chemicals quoted an EPA toxicologist as saying that the reports may also shift testing of such chemicals on animals to testing of cells in vitro. While Tamara Mariea declined comment on the EPA toxicologist’s suggestion, the Internal Balance wellness expert agrees that a more effective method of testing would be on human cells, even though in vitro, cells can not show the vivid reality and cause for harm from these chemicals inside each unique individual and therefore maybe dismissed from the list.

“Some of my work–our work at Internal Balance–has focused on chemical sensitivities and the unique toxic imprint on each of our clients,” commented Tamara Mariea. Tamara Mariea added, “Through detoxification, Internal Balance works with clients to extract some of the toxic chemicals that have entered our bodies.” Tamara Mariea did agree with the EPA toxicologist, Kevin Crofton, quoted in Kaplan’s article that there are more chemicals than data available. Tamara Mariea concluded, “The toxicologist quoted, Kevin Crofton, stated ‘there are thousands of chemicals in use for which we really don’t have much information at all,’ and he is correct.”

According to Tamara Mariea, the EPA Report is due for release early in 2011. For more information on Internal Balance, call 615-818-0074.

Snodgrass-King Pediatric Dental Associates Report on Simple Sports Protection

The team at Snodgrass-King Pediatric Dental Associates says that youth sports are a fantastic outlet for children to test their boundaries, cooperate with peers and show off to their loved ones. As with any recreation, says a Snodgrass-King dentist, youth sports have certain risks that come with the territory. From football pads to soccer shin guards and everything in between, says Snodgrass-King, protective gear is a mainstay of most any sport.

To begin, the pediatric dentists at Snodgrass-King note that a simple piece of protective gear is often overlooked on the playing field, and that is protective mouth gear. For the committed dentists at Snodgrass-King, protective mouth gear is a particularly important sports accessory. Snodgrass-King pediatric dentists encourage all of their patients to employ this protection when playing any active sport.

A Snodgrass-King spokesperson explains that mouth guards are one of the most affordable pieces of protective sporting equipment on the market. Some mouth protection gear is available over the counter, says Snodgrass-King, while other forms of mouth gear can be designed for an individual player’s unique needs. Protective mouth gear safeguards against external oral injuries, says the team at Snodgrass-King, much like protection for elbows and knees during a fast paced game.

But mouth guards do more than protect from errant players, points out the Snodgrass-King pediatric dental team. With good protective mouth gear, according to Snodgrass-King, a player is protected against potentially painful and damaging internal forces, like biting their own tongue or cheek, as well as crunching or chipping a tooth. Mouth guards are also very useful, explains the Snodgrass-King pediatric dental team, for preventing injuries to the neck and nervous system. Many sports naturally involve shocks and knocks. However, explains a Snodgrass-King dentist, the right mouth guard mitigates the amount of force transmitted to the base of a child’s skull through his or her jaw. Sports are a lot of fun, notes the Snodgrass-King team, but they also involve a lot of fast and sudden movement that, if misplaced, can result in serious injury. Visit your Snodgrass-King pediatric dental center to learn more about protective mouth gear for athletic children.

Dr. David Snodgrass DDS Addresses Parents About Pediatric Dental X-Rays

Many people that come to consult with Dr. David Snodgrass DDS at Snodgrass-King Pediatric Dental Associates are visiting for the first time as parents. Dr. David Snodgrass DDS offers valuable information to parents bringing their children for dental visits. New visitors to the Snodgrass-King Pediatric Dental Associates are given a warm welcome and a brief orientation with the facilities.

A child’s first visit to Dr. David Snodgrass DDS and the pediatric dentists at Snodgrass-King typically includes a diagnostic dental exam. At the pediatric dentistry office of Dr. David Snodgrass DDS, an important tool used in a child’s diagnostic dental visit is radiography, or X-rays. Radiographs enable pediatric dentists like Dr. David Snodgrass DDS to visually examine the underlying structure of the teeth and jaws. “Without X-rays,” explains Dr. David Snodgrass DDS, “many dental conditions could not be diagnosed until it was too late.”

Beyond detecting cavities, says Dr. David Snodgrass DDS, X-rays give pediatric dentists an opportunity to view erupting teeth before they break through the gums. X-rays are also indispensable for evaluating injuries, diagnosing bone afflictions, or preparing for orthodontics. The earlier dentists can identify a dental problem, says Dr. David Snodgrass DDS, the sooner it can be treated. Dr. David Snodgrass DDS also points out that early dental treatment for your child is less expensive and more comfortable than delayed treatment for exacerbated conditions.

According to Dr. David Snodgrass DDS, young children with a high risk of tooth decay should have an examination and radiograph at least once per year. Every third year, Dr. David Snodgrass DDS suggests requesting a thorough capture of radiographs. Dr. David Snodgrass DDS explains that a complete radiography session means a panoramic X-ray of the child’s mouth and bitewings.  At the office of Snodgrass-King, Dr. David Snodgrass DDS and the other pediatric dentists use the finest modern safeguards during X-ray procedures. Radiograph technology has improved over the years, notes Dr. David Snodgrass DDS, in safety as well as effectiveness. Statistically speaking, adds Dr. David Snodgrass DDS, any potential harm done by X-rays during examinations is negligible in relation to the harm posed by undetected dental problems like severely impacted wisdom teeth or bone disease.
