Metal Allergies and Dental Care  
Q: I have an extreme allergy to metal, but the dentist gave me a crown with silver-metal corners and I have had numerous infections off and on in that area of my mouth ever since, but the doctor won’t replace the crown for free, or even at a discount, even though their office gave me the wrong type of crown in the first place. What should I do?

A: No one, not even a medical doctor, or other professional has more intimate knowledge of your core hair, skin and overall health concerns (including dental), and how those concerns affect your long term health practices, than you. As you are allergic to metal and the dentist fits you with a silver/metal filling because they assume your allergy is simply a sensitivity to one type of metal as opposed to multiple types, or ALL metals, as the case may be with such allergies, and it appears to be the case, they are at fault for this error. If you were allergic to peanuts, most doctors would recommend avoiding all other nuts as well… But/and as they are unwilling to assume any formal responsibility (possibly for legal reasons) it is up to you to move forward with a new dental care provider. But, be sure to explain over the phone that you have an allergy and need to have your crown replaced with a solid porcelain, metal-free crown and hopefully it will be resolved in a timely manner over the next few months. In the event that you wish to pursue a case of negligence it would simply depend on if you could prove that you informed them of your allergies, before they put in the metal crown, in which case possibly you could proceed with a civil case for Gender-Battery…

The Real Benefits of Water, Sweat, Cardio, Sleep and Vegetarianism
Q: Are things like water intake type of diet and sleep really that important to our health, long-term?

A: Yes, as follows:

1. Water detoxifies and hydrates the body and maximizes the internal functions of the organs and skin.

2. Healthy Sweat releases toxins from the body and normalizes blood sugars and cholesterol levels and benefits healthy weight, skin tone and even hair growth.

3. Standing Cardio (walking, cycling, blading/skating, elliptical, treadmill, etc.) burns actual fat and shrinks fat cells as well as triggers fat burning hormonal activity, long term.

4. Min of 6-hours or more of Sleep each day triggers cellular turnover, rejuvenation and healing within the body.

5. A healthy Vegetarian-Friendly diet nourishes the body, and triggers fat-burning hormones within the body that help to maintain and stabilize weight (a good blue-green algae supplement, such as Spirulina is a highly recommended source of vegan DHA ; Cod Liver oil supplements are beneficial to those who do not normally consume a lot of seafood in the diet).

About Going Back To School
Q: I flunked out of school in my second semester of college and really regret not taking my studies seriously. Is there anything I can do to be readmitted,  I’d really like to earn my degree?

A: As the saying goes, it’s NEVER too late for second chances. And completing your degree will go a long way to ensuring that you will have a happy, successful career path in your lifetime.

The readmission process can be quite long, (and there is no guarantee that they will take you back), so it is important to follow these basic steps when trying to get back into the school that dropped you for poor scholarship.

The first thing you must do is be prepared, for the ‘just in case they say No scenario’. Schools take failure personally, it hurts their rankings nationally, so they really have no reason to let you back in. It is up to you to help them to see that readmitting you as a student will benefit the university, so you MUST demonstrate that you have the discipline and ability to meet the requirements for graduation that got you admitted in the first place. So, you know you have the POTENTIAL to succeed academically, but to be successful in college, you must be able to EXECUTE what you have learned successfully and with diplomacy to the instructor's satisfaction to earn an acceptable grade.

1). Find out what shat courses and community colleges your school allows transfer credits from.

2). Register for classes at one of the community colleges nearest your home.

3). Get all A’s—

4). Once you have taken at least 9 hours or more of transferable course work equal to or greater than the number of hours you failed or earned grades lower than B, make an appointment to see the academic advisor in admissions and records and tell them that you know you messed up in the past but you really do want to complete your degree and that you’ve been taking classes to demonstrate that you can handle college coursework.

5). They will ask you for a petition in writing, so you should have a formal request for consideration for readmission to the university in writing when you go and a copy of your grades from where you have been taking classes and they will forward the petition to the college (office of the dean) for formal consideration.
If things go well, they will readmit you on probation, but in some cases an appeal may be denied for various reasons (not enough course work or other reasons).

6). In the event your petition is denied, don’t give up, but simply start over… Continue taking classes and apply as a transfer student from community college to a new (backup choice) university as an undeclared major (this will improve your chances for admission) and do NOT include any of your previous coursework or schools that you flunked out from (they will not admit you if you do, you need to establish a clean record with the new grades from the community college to transfer in). And don’t mess up again.

7). In The Event You Plan On Going To Graduate School Someday….
Now this is the tricky part that they don’t actually explain to students. Even if you are able to beg your way back into school after messing up your first year or two, and graduate with flying colors, when Applying to Graduate School. Past Failures will reflect negatively on your application and chances are that you will not be admitted for graduate studies…

If you really want to go to graduate school despite those undergraduate missteps, then you will need to START OVER completely and instead of trying for readmission, now, you must first decide what your favorite backup university is and plan accordingly to graduate and apply to graduate school from THERE by doing the following;
a. Successfully complete 65credit hours of transferrable work (or what ever the requirement is for transfer students) at the community college that is closest to your home that they will accept transfer courses from.
b. Get absolutely all A’s-- . Apply to your favorite (backup) TOP-Tier university (Harvard, Howard, Yale, etc), that you can afford (transfer students may not be eligible for many scholarships), but is still a viable foundation that you can use as your platform to apply to the graduate school of your choice, later…  
c. Never ever include any previous schools or coursework other than those good transfer credits that got you this second chance. In fact, leave the past in the past and don’t even mention it. If anyone asks, why you started college so late, just say that you wanted to save money and gain a little more life experience to be sure you were prepared for university level studies and so forth…
d. Work your tail off once you get there (no parties, no dating), and undergrad will be over before you know it (and then you can relax and date---unless you plan on grad school, in which case you can relax and date AFTER you finish your PhD or MD).

Cool. Now, Even if you can’t return to your original school, for whatever reason, you can still complete your degree. But, that will require forgiving yourself those past mistakes and just taking the plunge to start over. And even though Starting Over academically can be a little difficult, it is the hard academic lessons that afford us the most insight.

This is important, because, while we all get second chances, we don’t always get third or fourth opportunities to get it right…

So, knuckle down and study hard. You can party AFTER you get your degree!

Good Luck!

About the Impact of Institutional Racism
Q: I have heard the people speak of the African holocaust slave-trade as the reason for the negative perceptions about black people and highly textured natural hair. -- but, since natural hair styles have become more popularized of late, do you see a transition to more mainstream acceptance, or at least in countries of African Diaspora?

A: Well, not to digress too far from the actual question, but--

Slavery has historically been a part of ALL societies and cultures (Hebrews were slaves in Africa, Christians were slaves in Pagan-era Rome, Greeks were enslaved also, as well as Asian cultures and so forth, however/yet, historically, NONE of these other ethnicities are called upon to cite 'enslavement' as a part of their 'CULTURE', as opposed to being noted as a 'dark-time-in this-or-that-part-of-history...' in Europe, etc...)

So, no it is not the African holocaust that is responsible  for this or any Other negative connotation/s about 'hair', but it IS however racism [that drives the continual negative connotative specific associations with Africans--
Particularly as some mixed ethnicities are more sensitive about their African Ancestry than others (but, as according to biology 101 facts-- all the selective breeding in the world will still leave you with that last drop of African ancestral blood as DNA tests have shown) -- remember what happened when they said tests would show Asians were Indo-Europeans, etc... and the tests led them straight to Sub-Saharan West Africa (there was all the rigmarole of rote niceties in public about a need for greater human understanding and cultural bonds and whatnot, however that was essentially the end of that research project--!)]...

And despite the bravura front, I don't think the government was ready to embrace their 'dark-cousins' as ancestral brethren-- even despite the fact that history has long demonstrated (before the advent of DNA technology) that ancient societies began with Africa (see Ethiopians of N. E. Africa and the Lemba people of S. Africa-- and let us not forget the Africans who spearheaded ancient European societies (esp. the Colchis who colonized the Caucus region) from which many European peoples derive their ethno-affiliations... It is steeped in Eur-African culture...)

And even in Europe today, with what should be a source of human bonding and connections, some mixed groups will still consider a description as 'mixed' or 'non-white-Caucasian' as grounds for a fist-fight...

(also: even how African are described in common language has an impact... for example if you don't know the specific ethno-background of someone who is from China, Japan, Korea or the Philippines; or Mexico or Spain or Puerto Rico-- you will politely say Asian or Latino, but globally Africans are referred to in a non-descript manner as 'Black' this or 'Black' that, -- no one would dare say beige this or brown that  to describe whole peoples-- it is objectifying in the worse way... All black people are of African ancestry and it leaves one to wonder --exactly how hard is it to say African or of African ancestry...? Not to mention the fact that DNA science has now proven that all humans came from the same African ancestors in the same African region--but westernized racism, even now wants to classify THOSE black folks as 'non-white' Caucasians -- which is impossible since we evolved from a central point in Africa, not Europe -- (a point some Ethiopians have even gone to US court over, to rectify) and even if we can't all be friends, we can at least respect our mutual humanity and live and let live)--

So, as with all societal ills, no, it is not history, or acts of war, but horrifying Racism that is at the root of our discontent in this particular matter...

About Fertility After Age 40
Q: Is it possible to have healthy children after 40?

A: Yes. We now know that healthy fertility is based on a number of factors including the following:
* A Healthy Fertility Cycle
* Balanced Hormones
* Healthy Eggs and Healthy Sperm
* Age
* Proper Circulation
* Healthy Sperm
* Other Health Status

And although natural fertility declines significantly after age 35 or so, thanks to healthy diet regimens and modern medical fertility solutions, many women have successfully become pregnant with their own, or had their own biological embryo carried by a surrogate to term. Cheryl Tiegs, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Steve Martin and Jack Nicholson all had biological children after age 40.

In addition to seeking the medical advice of a certified n OBGYN/Prostate or other Fertility Specialist you must also undertake the following steps to optimize pre-pregnancy, pregnancy and post-pregnancy conditions:

* 1. Begin A Healthy Fertility Diet (essential for men and women)
* 2. PreNatal Vitamin Formulas (for women)
* 3. Daily Multi (for men)
* 4. Folic Acid (400-MCG  ), Iron (15-MG), L’arginine (16-G), B-6 (100-MG), Vitamin C ( 500-MG),
     Flax Seed Oil ( 400-MG)
* 5. Fertility Herbs such as Vitex (restores balance of progesterone and estrogen levels), Tribulus
     (good for sperm), and Maca (benefits male and female fertility)
* 6. Avoid Alcohol, Avoid Caffeine, Avoid Smoking
* 7. Invest in an Ovulation Kit (with a basal thermometer)
* 8. Keep a Fertility Calendar (ovulation is usually on the 14th  day BEFORE the date of your next period.
     So, calculate your ovulation date and then have sexual-inter*ourse 2-days before AND after that  
     particular day.
* 9. Do IT In The Traditional Missionary Position (traditional man-on-top, face-to-face position is best;
     not only is it the most orgasmic for women next to cunnilingus, it is the most fertile natural position)
* 10. Exercise (Walking, Cardio, Fertility Yoga, etc.; if you are overweight, you should lose the excess
       weight before becoming pregnant)
* 11. Foods that Benefit Progesterone and Estrogen (for women) and Testosterone (for men): Plain Water
       (8-10 Glasses Daily) ; Wild Yams (not the same as sweet potatoes, so read labels carefully; Cashews,
       Walnuts, Peanuts, Almonds ; Foods with Zinc (Shellfish, Cooked Oysters, Spinach, Toasted
       Wheatgerm, Pumpkin and Squash Seeds, Cashews) ; Foods with B-6 (Whole Grains, Soy Milk,
