Benefits of Reishi Mushrooms

This is interesting for me as I have just started taking Reishi mushroom powder in tea form. Reason –   I have been having trouble with a mild form of Vertigo which I find very debilitating and frustrating as I have it for weeks at a time.  I have been taking it now  for a week now first thing in the morning on an empty stomach before I head off to the gym. Result – so far the vertigo has disappeared after two days. I have to say I have stopped all other vitamins at this time so that I can evaluate the powder. I know that it is said to be a physical problem, with crystals in our inner ear but I believe it could also be a deficiency of sorts as well that can cause the swimming of ones vision and head. 

Will take this powder for two weeks and see how it goes.

Poem Friday – Everything Goes Beep

rrbeep

Everything goes Beep
Author – Lesley Voth

It drives me crazy at the sound of the beeps
It is so invasive it gives me the creeps

It controls our lives no matter where we are
We get the beep when we reverse the car

The washing machine it beeps when its finished
Keeps going until your peace is diminished

The fridge now when that beeps it is my pet hate
we should have the option to deactivate

The Microwave does the same, beeps till you come
We go running to the beat of that drum

We seem to need the alarm beeping in our ear
Gets louder and louder like we don’t hear

Even when we want to cross the road
It beeps to tell us and flashes a crossing code

Open the car door and left keys in the ignition
For goodness sake just another annoying addition.

For most I am sure your life if just fine with that noise
But for me the peace it destroys

What is it that someone out there decided for us
To control our movements in the name of safety is not a plus

Our parents survived without following like sheep
Did not bounce up to everything that goes beep

1. Four cups of coffee a day could lower your chances of getting the deadly melanoma by 20% according to new research published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. The Caffeine and polyphenols are credited with the suppression of UV-induced tumor growth. Note to all my friends that have decaf – It does not offer the same benefits.

2. Researchers asked people detailed questions about a film they had just seen. Those who were instructed to shut their eyes when questioned  correctly answered 23%  more than those who kept their lids open. 

The interesting part is that closing your eyes lowers your brains cognitive load by blocking out distractions. That helps you focus on the task of remembering.

3. Dry mouth can be a tooth-ache pain culprit – The saliva in your mouth helps neutralize acids in the mouth that can erode enamel and can lead to the dreaded toothache. Solution seems to be the old saying ‘Drink plenty of water’. I am sure you have heard that one over and over again.

4. Kill that bacteria that is the cause of swimmers ear.

My son and grandson have had this problem for years because they are water animals and love surfing and are in the pool all summer so I know this is a painful problem. Now we have the solution.

Vinegar acidifies the external auditory canal, killing the bacteria that causes the problem. 

Dilute white vinegar with an equal amount of distilled water and using an eye dropper put 3 drops in the affected ear 3 times daily .

Use, instead of ‘Over the counter’ products that dry out the ear canal. Get someone to put the drops in your ear so you don’t miss.

3. Food Scores – This I tried cause it was free. It did not compute the products I tried so it could be rather limited. Scan a bar code and the app scores that food from 1 to 10 about the nutrition, ingredients and degree of processing

Grilled Bacon Corn On The Cob

Grilled bacon corn on the cob

Directions

Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.

Sprinkle each ear of corn with cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper, and wrap each ear with 2 slices of bacon, covering the ear as completely as possible. (a big ear might need 3 pieces of bacon.) wrap the ears in aluminum foil, twisting the ends tightly to seal.

Place the wrapped corn on the preheated grill, and grill on high heat until the corn is hot, about 10 minutes per side. Turn the heat to low, and grill the corn until the bacon is cooked and the corn is tender, about 45 minutes.
