Product of the Month
“Ouch!” If you’ve ever bitten into something while you had a tooth infection, needed a root canal or had a broken tooth, and then felt a searing pain shooting through your mouth, you know all-too-well how debilitating that excruciating sting can be. All around the world people need basic dental treatment to be able to carry out their lives. Sadly, good dental care is often difficult to obtain in many parts of the world.
Blessings International has been honored to supply products to missions teams providing dental care to patients across the globe since our earliest days. Today we carry a number of products, including Lidocaine and dental needle cartridges for dental missions teams. We also have toothbrushes and toothpaste with fluoride available at a very low price so that anyone going on a mission trip can give them away.

Products of the Month-Just in time for Flu Season, Nebulizers!
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) influenza occurs globally with an annual attack rate estimated at 5%–10% in adults and 20%–30% in children. Illnesses can result in hospitalization and death mainly among high-risk groups (the very young, elderly or chronically ill). Worldwide, these annual epidemics are estimated to result in about 3 to 5 million cases of severe illness, and about 250,000 to 500,000 deaths.
The WHO recommends seasonal vaccines to help prevent the disease and anti-viral drugs to fight it. But along with those, many people who contract the flu also need help with breathing. Blessings International carries a number of devices that can help increase flu sufferers ability to breath and also help people suffering from asthma.
An estimated 300 million people worldwide suffer from asthma, with 250,000 annual deaths attributed to the disease. Almost all of the deaths are preventable according to a WHO report.
Blessings International is working to help teams fight influenza and asthma and carries two nebulizers (one in the shape of a dog or cow!), nebulization solution, peak flow meter and other items to fight these diseases and their complications.
