Notes On Plaque Removing Nanobots
I recently learned about plaque removing nanobots that are intended to help keep people healthier. I don’t know if they’re viable at the moment, or just in the research stage, but wow… wouldn’t such a thing be fantastic?
The idea (I believe) was lifted directly from an “Outer Limits” episode, but it wouldn’t be the first time sci-fi inspired something with real life applications.
Notes Regarding Some Benefits of Bananas
Do you eat bananas? If not, I’d advise you should, unless of course you have an allergy to them. I bought some recently & reaped benefits right away.
They are considered a super food for their many benefits. Let me tell you about my actual personal experience though.
Just in the short time I’ve gotten back into eating them, they’ve increased my energy, helped relieve muscle cramps, and even relieved an itchy skin condition.
I have begun eating two per day.
What I share here is only personal experience and advice, and is no substitute for professional medical advice.
Good morning and blessings to all, Dear Ones.
It’s only around 5 a.m. here, but I’m revved like the Energizer bunny. I will likely go with my wife to drop off my son at school in a couple hours.
Provided of course that my energy levels stay good.
I got out a bit yesterday, paid some bills, bought some groceries, and had energy to actually do all the walking around that such tasks required.
I am glad that (for that time being at least) I had no need for things like a ride on shopping cart.
Update On Death of Young Footballer
A while back I wrote about a 21 year old football player who suddenly dropped dead of (at that time) unknown causes. The latest on that story is he died of a blood clot, according to an article I read.
I am writing this because I had promised an update as facts became available. I just became aware of this development.
Are You A Fan of Garlic?
Are you a fan of garlic? I’ve read that garlic (and garlic supplements) have incredible heart health benefits. I’ve also read that garlic supplements can reduce arterial plaque.
Garlic can be added to a wide range of dishes, if you’re not really a fan of the taste of garlic you can certainly mask it with other flavors.
Addressing The Issue of Chronic Anger
We all lose our cool at times, we might as well get that acknowledgement out of the way from the jump as this post begins.
Anger has it’s place, to be sure, but living in a constant state of anger is poisonous (to ourselves and others around us.)
If you have a chronic anger problem, don’t let it fester in you. Acknowledging a problem is the first step to dealing with it.
There are plenty of resources (especially these days) to help, just need to be willing to seek them out. There is no shame in seeking help in ANY areas of life where it’s needed.
You and those you Love will be better off for it.
A Crazy Story
So, earlier I came across a story about a patient that hadn’t taken his meds in a while. He then tried to catch up on all his missed medication at once, compounding his medical troubles of course.
I’ve heard of people doing many dumb things over the years, but this is among those that really take the cake.
Eli’s 9 Year Wellness Check Notes
My son had an appointment today (his nine year wellness check.) It went great, but he’s being referred to St. Luke’s in Twin Falls for an in depth neurologist visit. It’s just a precaution on our part since he had the seizure at school a while back.
I’m hoping no issues are found, but his PC physician is concerned that there may be something more substantial going on.
Guess we’ll see, please keep him in your prayers. Thank you all in advance.
Answering A Question/Prompt
I recently came across the question whether it’s morally wrong to not visit a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer’s in a nursing home, and essentially what the point OF visiting would be.
Visiting a loved one in mental decline could be beneficial to them. For example, it could lift their mood, however temporarily, just knowing SOMEONE cares enough to visit.
I remember as a young child sometimes visiting a local nursing home in my hometown at the time on Sundays to sing for the residents, and seeing their faces light up was beautiful.
As for morality, dropping someone you profess to Love off at a nursing home & then essentially acting as if they’re dead to you WOULD be morally repugnant.
