Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) & Tooth paste

I have always had mouth ulcers - on & off and somewhere I read that Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) could be the cause. I roamed the super markets and found that 99% of tooth pastes contains this ingredient. Finally I got hold of a Herbal tooth paste and assumed that this may not have it since only a few herbal ingredients were listed. Well I didnt have the ulcers for a long time. That is when we decided to paint our flat and my tooth paste was packed somewhere and I was forced to use the normal one. And it started again.. those ulcers...

So I guess for a few of us it is better to stay away from SLS.

A foolproof Formula for Success by ARTHUR GORDON.. adapted from the Readers Digest

If a man is to move to the top and be entrusted with command decisions, there must be a plus factor, something that takes mere ability and doubles or trebles its effectiveness. To describe this magic characteristic there’s only one word: INTEGRITY

Basically, the word means wholeness. In mathematics, an integer is a number that isn’t divided into fractions. Similarly, a man of integrity isn’t divided against himself. He doesn’t think one thing and say another – so it is virtually impossible for him to lie. He doesn’t believe in one thing and do another – so he is not in conflict with his principles. It is the absence of inner warfare, that gives a man the extra energy and clarity of thought that make achievement inevitable.

Integrity means:

1- Living up to the best in yourself.
2- Having a high developed sense of honour.
3- Having a conscience and listening to it.
4- Having the courage of your convictions.
5- Obedience to the unenforceable.
And when a person has integrity, he has..
- boldness
- persistence
- serenity
and mind you it is difficult too but it is worth it..
