Getting a sore throat, a headache , blocked nose, and muscle pain as well as fever is always unpleasant. For me, I have to fight a cold or two every year because I can get the flu easily as well like what happened to me now. It’s rainy season here in our country, so having this sickness just ordinary. For a day, I am in battle with headache and colds. I wanted to take prescription drugs, but I want to take the challenge of applying home remedies, for I know it will bring substantial relief as well.
With my blocked nose, I mixed half a teaspoon of salt to eight ounces (one glass) of water and started dropping one ot two drops of the solution into each nostril.I am feeling a relief right now.
I am drinking lots of water and fruit juice since last night. Although, it is uncomfortable going to the bath room often, but it’s worth it. I am planning to drink some green tea tonight too. I read from a medicine blog that green tea is packed with antioxidants that boost the immune system. It will surely help me fight the cold or flu more effectively aside from its energizing and refreshing effect.
Coming June 16 (Father’s Day) is my 1st year anniversary of joining Fun runs. I really enjoy this discipline though I’m into mountain biking too. It was my church friend who encouraged me to try it and the running virus stuck on me. My wife would do our regular morning jog or evening jogs to keep fit and healthy now that we are in our middle forties.
Running has many benefits and you could even search it in the net. It’s not that expensive! Though some of my friends really invested in classy running shoes and accessories, you can really start even with those old rubber shoes of yours. Plus, it’s the easiest way to discover places in the neighborhood which you haven’t discovered yet.
Running benefits include: Victory against the battle of the bulge, prevents muscle and bone loss, fights disease (cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, hypertension), maintain and improve general health, gives confidence, relief from stress, improves attitude (runner’s high), trains your mind, improves coordination, and versatility.
So who wants to join me and my buddies? Let’s run for life!
If you can not discipline yourself in eating a healthy diet, doing regular exercise and sleeping early at night… then you have no other choice but to take the medicine even though it cost you a lot. Even though you know that a natural remedy is attainable. This is what happened to my friend. Her sickness is not that aàa serious. Her cholesterol count is too high, I believed it can be lowered down by eating the right food, by doing even a 30 minute exercise and having a healthy lifestyle. Personally, I experience having a very high level of cholesterol but with discipline, it was decreased in a matter of 3 months.
As I am updating this blog, I Received a text a message from my sister-in-law requesting to include her daughter in our prayers. Her daughter was diagnosed with an eye abnormality that needs immediate attention. According to the opthalmologist, xher eye problem is rare atbher age. She,s only 20 years old and too young for the problem. She needs a laser operation as soon as possible. Whew! The cost is estimated at around P30,000.00 to P40,000.00 . This so big an amount that the family should look. As of now, I am thinking for a way where to get the money. My niece is graduating in college this October.She,s an academic scholar , so finding a job after graduation would not be a problem. I pray I can find a loan for her medical needs . A loan which will be payable after a year from availment. Any suggestion?Is there such loan available these days?
As we all know that most of the retail packaging is done with the help of plastic packaging products . We all know as well that an ordinary plastic will take hundreds of years to degrade. According to a survey for an environmentalist groups, more than 2.5 billion plastic bags per year are dumped in an average sized country alone. So just imagine the hazard and harm non-biodegradable plastic can inflict to mother earth.
Thanks to the invention of biodegradable plastics. Scientist were able to create materials for packing that are environment friendly. Now almost everyone is using it. For out city, an ordinance was created penalizing store using the non-biodegradable plastic .
