WARTS – these pesty things can drive you nuts. The latest I’ve heard regarding the natural way to get rid of them is, that taking Black Elderberry is good. Putting NEEM OIL on the wart will eventually make it go away. According to Dr. Bob Martin, these all work. The big thing, which I didn’t know about Warts is that sugar and junk food feeds them. Also, according to Dr. Bob Martin.
Wart infection can be described as:
- Mild – just one or a few painless lesions
- Moderate – 10–20 lesions that are painless
- Severe – pain that limits normal life activities, bleeding, or over 20 lesions, except for flat warts, which can be numerous, yet not bothersome.
Other Ways to get rid of them include – but note the caution.
- Over-the-counter wart removers have a high percentage of salicylic acid and work by dissolving away the layer of skin infected with the virus. This treatment needs to be used daily and can sometimes be irritating if it touches unaffected skin around the wart.
- Duct tape applied daily to the affected area seems to work for unknown reasons. The tape should be very sticky and kept on for a few days.
- Over-the-counter freezing medications are available but have not been found to be very effective.
- Coupled with the above therapies, the wart should be soaked in warm water, and any loose skin should be removed every few days with a mild abrasive, like a pumice stone.
- Family members should avoid sharing personal items such as towels.
- When all else fails, make an appointment with a good Dermatologist.
MIGRAINE– known to most of you as a headache, and who many are plagued with can be devastating. According to a study published in the journal ‘Headache’, “among individuals who suffer from migraine headache, there is a greater risk of low levels of vitamin B12, and higher levels of methylmalonic acid – which increases with B12 deficiency.” As of late it is being said to be the result of ‘mask wearing’ on a long term basis.
LAUGHTER – who would have thought that laughing can be an exercise. Brian Vaszily stated that “laughing 100 times is equivalent to 15 minutes of exercise on a stationary bike.”
PILLOWS – What do you know about ‘pillows’? There are many different kinds, and you individually buy what works for you. BUT, have you ever considered the fact that your choice in a pillow could make you sick?
Little known facts:
- Pillows can ‘outgas’ chemicals that are easily inhalable; with foam pillows being the worst as they may release what is known as VOCs. Organic chemical compounds which are everywhere in both indoor and outdoor environments because they have become essential ingredients in many products and materials. VOCs are volatized or released into the air mostly during manufacture or use of everyday products and materials. VOCs are of concern as both indoor and outdoor air pollution.
- These VOC chemicals are linked to cancer, headaches, memory impairment, vision problems, and liver, kidney and nervous system damage. And, because of contact with the skin can also cause eczema and dermatitis.
- How to fix it? Try sleeping without a pillow if you have any of the earlier named health issues or symptoms of. Avoid synthetic petroleum-based foam and choose pillows made of wool, cotton, natural latex foam or plant-based fillings. DO YOUR RESEARCH, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES, to discover what is better for you than what you already have.
RAZORS – use to be used by only men, but now are used by both men and women. Shaving any part of the body can cause an inflammatory response in your skin, leading to soreness and inflammation. If you have experienced this, you probably don’t have a long term love affair with your razor. This leads to buying razor, after razor, after razor. So, how can you avoid this? By taking better care of it:
1. Don’t store your razor in the shower. This creates an environment for bacteria build up which hides in the razor’s nooks and crannies. This build up when it comes in contact with an open sore, or razor nick can lead to infection.
2. Prolonged moisture can create oxidation, microscopic rusting, and corrosion on the blade. This leads to a rough, or no hair removal shave.
3. Rinse your razor well after each shave to remove debris, and dry it on a towel. You can even dry it with a hair dryer – which will remove the water quicker and more efficiently, to avoid any kind of rusting.
4. Store your razor in a dry place, not the puddle of water on the edge of the sink or tub. And place it with the blades pointing up.
5. When you notice your razor showing signs of rusting or being dull which increases the risk of nicks or tugging sensations on your skin, it is TIME TO REPLACE YOUR RAZOR.
