For healthy – Xylitol, birch sugar

is a sugar alcohol or polyol. More than 500 studies have been conducted on xylitol and dental caries.

As early as 1994, a study was conducted that showed that a mother’s regular use of xylitol chewing gum also significantly prevented her children from developing caries! A study conducted by the year 2000 has confirmed that xylitol pastille is as effective in preventing caries as full xylitol chewing gum! A study was published in 2001 showing that maternal xylitol use during pregnancy can significantly reduce the risk of caries in the unborn child from the mother and in the long term even after birth. The risk of a newborn child with caries was up to 70% lower in a child using xylitol during the next two years of age, compared to children in mothers who did not use xylitol. Xylitol does not replace tooth brushing with fluoride toothpaste!

Unlike sugar, xylitol does not significantly affect the body’s insulin secretion. Despite its sweetness, xylitol is low in calories. Xylitol is not suitable for energy for many microbes ( therefore, they are unable to reproduce in the mouth ), unlike sugar, which is why it is used as a sweetener in chewing gum, for example. Xylitol reduces the amount of plaque and its adhesion to the tooth surface! Research has also shown that xylitol repairs mica damage that has already begun.The raw material for xylitol is xylan, which is obtained e.g. birch and in the EU, xylitol is approved as a food additive. Also, xylitol increases the yield of saliva so long time it is in the mouth. Xylitol is a laxative, that is, it has a stimulating intestinal activity. Daily xylitol doses of more than 45 g in children and more than 100 g in adults cause diarrhea. Xylitol ends up in the gut for the most part because the human body is unable to use xylitol effectively for food.

Toothpaste containing xylitol as a humectant. Children should not use pastes that contain antimicrobials or pastes that reported to prevent tartar formation or whitening teeth! The behavior of fluoride toothpaste supports the tooth protection provided by xylitol because fluoride also reduces tooth decay. Fluoride prevents the dissolution of dental minerals by bacteria. Fluoride also helps to re-mineralize the enamel already dissolved by the bacteria. Xylitol dissolves in water endothermically, i.e. by binding heat from its surroundings – this causes a feeling of coolness in the mouth. Brushing your teeth should take 2 minutes.

The four main areas of oral care:
1. Brush your teeth in the morning and evening with fluoride toothpaste.
2. Regular meals and minimization of snacks.
3. A thirst quencher is water.
4. Use xylitol.
Take care! With all my love, Johanna

What if…..

Vedenalainen, Elämä, Sukelluksissa

Life seems to have become dangerous. Every person I encounter seems to be a risk to my health. And yours too. Inhalation appears to be dangerous. Touching appears to be dangerous. Life has become a struggle for survival where only time can be won. It seems that life around is narrowing. Everyone holds their breath, to stay alive!

Meditaatio, Tyyni, Kaupungin Yläpuolella

When an entrepreneur on whose premises customers have been exposed to a Covid-19 infection and some have contracted a coronavirusinfection, denies it happened while hiding behind invented explanations …. When a neighbor says her cough is a little winter flu, and doesn’t feel the need to take a coronavirustest …. When a coworker tells that their runny nose is due to an allergy and does not feel the need to go for a coronavirustest ….. My client brings their child to the same kindergarten as I do my own child, but forgets to tell that she has a headache and a sore throat because she doesn’t have time for a coronavirustest …. They are just small things, but each of them is actually willing to endanger my health, and yours too.They just don`t care, about me or you!

Pysäkki, Shy, Kansi, Piilota, Väri

Because of these people, all of us Finns have to suffer. We are punished for some of us not following commonly agreed rules. Because some have taken the right to endanger their own health in addition to the health of others. They have an endless number of explanations, excuses, and lies on which they justify their actions. But in the end, it’s just that they don’t care, about themselves or me or you. They just don’t care! Simple as that.

Puolustus, Suojelu, Uhka

Why do we Finns submit to these selfish explanators? Why do we Finns accept that the government closes our food restaurant because of these selfish explanators? Why do we Finns accept that some are just more selfish than others, even though it is not just a matter of endangering their own health?

Motivoiva Lainaus, Yritä Estää Minua

Because we Finns are used to accepting dissidents? Because we Finns are used to interfering only in our own affairs? Or because we Finns don’t care about them or ourselves? That`s it: We Finns just don’t care, about ourselves, or others!

On today I`m too lazy to care about that., or about me.

Stay safe, use facemask, keep distance, wash hands, anyway! With all mine love, Johanna

The situation is new, but not hopeless. Covid-19-virus came, and put the nations on their knees. Never before have people traveled from one continent to another as much as they did in the 21st century. That, I think, has the crux of this chaos: our microbes are mixing and so they are pushing themselves stronger than ever. Nature is smarter than human, always! 
Maaperä, Luonne, Maa, Ympäristö, Vähän, Lehti

But people are fighting against it. Covid-19-virus has made people very unequal: those who earn better have moved to their telecommuting homes, those who earn less work by risking the Covid-19-virus themselves every day. Hammassuojan, Infektio, Ostaminen, Corona, Coronavirus

But let’s not forget the people who toil day and night for all of us. An example of this is Finnish innovation: ViralSafe-products. ViralSafe is a temporary protective coating against microbes, including against Covid-19-virus. It removes microbes from surfaces in a matter of seconds. You can read more about it on my website under "Products". Taidot, Voi, Taitoja, Käynnistyä, Start Up, Säätiö

How effective is ViralSafe in hospitals, nursing homes, day care centers, schools, libraries, public transport, etc. - very, very, very! Decision-makers are only required to have the will to start fighting life-threatening viruses. It is no longer a question of lack of tools but of the will of decision makers! It is not a question of money now, but of will. Decision-makers must use all means. The faster it happens, the less human suffering will be. Hallitus, Koulu, Unelmia, Tehdä, Puuttua, Itseluottamus

” CTM ViralSafe coating is a patented multi-metal hybrid alloy we have developed. The efficacy of the product is based on the antibacterial effects of pure metals, which have been recognized already thousands of years ago. However, these natural metals alone do not provide fast enough action against microbes. This is why we developed a hybrid alloy to make the most of the benefits of each different natural metal. This way, the efficacy of the product is achieved within seconds instead of minutes or hours! ”

” We created a new standard of protection against viruses and bacteria.

European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (EDCD) estimates that more than 4 million people get ill from contact surfaces each year in various healthcare facilities, such as hospitals, alone. Contact surfaces are known to be one of the most challenging places to keep clean, as consecutive contacts may occur every few seconds. This is a problem that we want to address and to which we offer various solutions.

We are constantly studying the effectiveness of our products against various bacteria and viruses. Functions of Microbes are constantly changing, which requires us to react quickly and invest significantly in research. Our products effectively eliminate the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus, and all most common bacteria. However, even this top, stunning result is not enough for us, and we will continue studying to ensure even greater efficacy against various microbes and viruses.

Our objective is to create a range of easy-to-use products that ensure better hygiene of the contact surfaces. The temporary protective coating we have created and developed reduce the need for cleaning, as the coating automatically eliminates bacteria and viruses. People do not have to disinfect their hands to be safe from the microbes on the contact surfaces, as our temporary coating act automatically as mandatory protection.  ”

” Where to install?

ViralSafe-products can be installed on all contact surfaces both indoors and outdoors. Our product range is wide and you can find a suitable temporary protective coating for each installation site that is as easy to install as possible.

This is The Day, 27.12.2020

Nainen, Terveydenhuollon Ammattilaisen

Coronavirus vaccines arrived in Finland yesterday. The first batch of coronavirus vaccines developed by Pfizer and Biontech arrived in Finland on yesterday morning. Because current coronavirus vaccines are sensitive to temperature fluctuations, there are e.g. temperature sensors. Finland’s first coronavirus vaccinations are being given today, Sunday 27.12.2020, in Helsinki.They are given at Helsinki University Hospital. A total of 9,750 doses of coronavirus vaccines were delivered to Finland. They are enough to vaccinate 4,875 people. After the first vaccine, a booster vaccine should be given within 21 days of the first.

Rokotus, Doctor, Ruiskujen

In Finland, coronavirus vaccines are distributed in Finland’s five special areas of responsibility for nursing and their university hospitals. Coronavirus vaccines in Finland are distributed according to the size of the regions – Helsinki is the largest region.There are university hospitals in Helsinki, Tampere, Turku, Kuopio and Oulu. Other university hospitals will start coronavirus vaccinations tomorrow, on Monday. At first, staff involved in the treatment of coronavirus patients and suspected coronavirus infection, as well as sampling, will be vaccinated.

Rokotus, Impfspritze, Lääketieteellinen

The time and place of the first coronavirus vaccinations will be published for safety reasons. After Helsinki, vaccinations will be started at Tampere University Hospital on Monday for the staff of the intensive care unit. At the University Hospitals of Turku, Kuopio and Oulu, the first coronavirus vaccinations are given to staff caring for corona patients.

Lääke, Potilas, Lääkäri, Jännite, Tauti

Finland is part of the joint procurement mechanism of the EU countries. Through the joint procurement mechanism, Finland has the opportunity to procure coronavirus vaccines from several different manufacturers, but the coronavirus vaccines to be used, their quantity and delivery times will be specified later. According to plans, the following batches of coronavirus vaccine will arrive in Finland on a weekly basis. In the future, deliveries will be in larger quantities, about a few tens of thousands of servings each week.

Kuuleminen, Arviointi, Lääketiede

In Finland, the European Medicines Agency’s (EMA) recommendation that pregnant or lactating women consult their doctor before taking Pfizer-Biontech’s coronavirus vaccine is being followed. The doctor forms an overall picture of the person’s situation and the need for the vaccine. There were no indications in the study that the coronavirus vaccine caused any side effects. Therefore, it is recommended that you discuss with your doctor how necessary vaccination is. Pregnant subjects and lactating have not been adequately included in the test group of Pfizer-Biontech’s coronavirus vaccine, trade name: Cominarty. Therefore, the company does not have sufficient data on the potential risks to pregnant or lactating women.

Corona, Virus, Coronavirus, Epidemia

The coronavirus epidemic is controlled in Finland under the Communicable Diseases Act primarily through local and regional measures. Effective infection surveillance and local and regional control measures aimed at preventing the spread of infections are also key to preventing a worsening of the national coronavirus epidemic.

Lääkäri, Sairaanhoitaja, Arvostelu

Diseases that are highly susceptible to severe coronavirus disease include: chronic severe kidney disease, severe immunosuppressive condition (acute cancer treatment, organ transplantation ) and severe chronic lung disease. Diseases predisposing to serious coronavirus disease include coronary heart disease and cirrhotic liver disease.

Injektio, Lääketieteellinen, Shot

Hello, my name is Johanna, and it`s very nice to meet you!

I am sometimes very ordinary, and sometimes not at all, ordinary Finnish woman in Finland.

I was born in Finland, in a city called Iisalmi, but now I live in the capital of Finland, Helsinki. I will be 59-years on July 2021. I am a mother of six children and grandmother to twelve child’s. All of our kids have already moved away from us, so I live with my husband and the wheaten terrier Rici.

I work in the social field with families with children, at home in families. I am a practical nurse, and I have completed three areas of expertise: medical care in 2011, leg healthcare in 2014, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health in 2019.

Next week I will move on to doing the same job only with families with an infection – Corona is also in an awkward phase here in Finland. I was told that I will only be working on the infection team in December 2020, but I already know that I will not return to healthy client families until the spring of 2021. Wish me luck and endurance, thank you!

The blog is about telling about my own life and on the website about Finnish products, innovations and lifestyle. Sometimes I will talk about serious things, but we also have fun together. Ask if you come up with any questions, I will be happy to answer!

And hey, if you’re coming to Finland for the Helsinki metropolitan area, don’t forget to tell me about it – I’ll be happy to be your guide!

Thank you for stopping by to read my site. I hope you enjoy of what you were reading!

With all my Love – Johanna –
