Breathing technique To Help Conquer Lung infection

This technique apparently has been used with great success so are forwarding it on to you. The last time I forwarded something of interest You tube took it down so if you are interested take a look and copy the instructions in case they take this one down. Certainly seems harmless enough and worth a try if you are feeling symptoms of the virus.

The Danger of Rare Gene which Causes Resistance To Bacteria

 

Just read this article from the website of Dr Mercola who is  well-respected in the field of medicine. It is well worth the read and I believe everyone should be aware of the dangers of these resistant drugs.

I Will give you an outline of what it is about.

It has been suggested that deaths from antibiotic-resistant disease will reach 10 million per year. Drivers of this disease is antibiotics in agriculture, Hospitals, CRE- (carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae) which produces an enzyme that breaks down antibiotics

Strategies to protect yourself and help prevent the spread of are:-

  1. Infection prevention, with a focus on strengthening your immune system naturally. Avoiding sugars, processed foods and grains, stress reduction, and optimizing your sleep and vitamin D level are foundational for this. Adding in traditionally fermented and cultured foods is also important, as this will help optimize your microbiome.

The Nitric Oxide Dump exercise (below) will also help improve your immune status. Contrary to supplements that boost immune function, which should be taken only as needed, the Nitric Oxide Dump exercise is a preventive method that should ideally be done daily.

2. Limiting your use of antibiotics. Any time your doctor prescribes an antibiotic, ask if it’s absolutely necessary, and keep in mind that antibiotics do not work for viral infections. For example, antibiotics are typically unnecessary for most ear infections, and they do not work on the common cold or flu, both of which are caused by viruses.

3. Avoiding antibiotics in food by purchasing organic or biodynamic grass-fed meats and animal products.

4. Avoiding antibacterial household products such as antibacterial soaps, hand sanitizers and wipes, as these promote antibiotic resistance by allowing the strongest bacteria to survive and thrive in your home.

5. Properly washing your hands with warm water and plain soap, to prevent the spread of bacteria. Be particularly mindful of washing your hands and kitchen surfaces after handling raw meats, as about half of all meat sold in American grocery stores is likely to be contaminated with pathogenic bacteria. Avoid antibiotic soaps that typically have dangerous chemicals like triclosan.

6. Common-sense precautions in the kitchen: Kitchens are notorious breeding grounds for disease-causing bacteria, courtesy of contaminated meat products, including antibiotic-resistant strains of E-coli. To avoid cross-contamination between foods in your kitchen, adhere to the following recommendations:

  • Use a designated cutting board, preferably wood, not plastic, for raw meat and poultry, and never use this board for other food preparation, such as cutting up vegetables. Color coding your cutting boards is a simple way to distinguish between them
  • To sanitize your cutting board, use hot water and detergent. Simply wiping it off with a rag will not destroy the bacteria
  • For an inexpensive, safe and effective kitchen counter and cutting board sanitizer, use 3 percent hydrogen peroxide and vinegar. Keep each liquid in a separate spray bottle, and then spray the surface with one, followed by the other, and wipe off
  • Coconut oil can also be used to clean, treat and sanitize your wooden cutting boards. It’s loaded with lauric acid that has potent antimicrobial actions. The fats will also help condition the wood

These recommendation come from Dr Mercola’s article.That is why I recommend you read it as it could save you and your family’s life.

My recommendation is   Precaution of the water you drink 💦 – Antibiotic residue can be found in the water you drink. The  Kangen water machine will filter and enhance the quality of the water  to strengthen your immune system. I personally have experienced this.

These are the natural Immune Boosters

Garlic

Oregano Extract

Cinnamon

Colloidal Silver

Manuka honey

Echinacea

Sunlight and Vitamin D

This is the video of Nitric Oxide dump which has many many benefits

1. Refrigerating apples can help them last up to 10 times longer than those left at room temperature.
Amongst other things Apples have other beneficial nutrients called quercetin. This nutrient has the potential to prevent many types of cancers such as breast cancer and lung cancer. It’s extremely good at fighting off free radicals in your body that cause you to prematurely age. On top of slowing the aging process down, it also can prevent age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.

2. According to ‘Healthy You’ article in the AARP magazine an Australian study found muscles recover faster after strenuous exercise if you top off your post-workout meal with several cups of ‘caffeinated’ coffee.
Florida researchers found three cups of caffeinated coffee a day may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and dementia in older people with mild cognitive impairment.
Study by AARP of 400,000 older adults showed that regular coffee drinkers were less likely to die from all causes than non- drinkers were

Very interesting don’t you agree. I love these results as it makes it more pleasurable to be drinking something that is good for you

1. According to Zhou-Feng Chen, Ph.D., Director of the center for the study of itch at Washington University in St Louis, Scratching is sort of like a mini-orgasm. He says “it can activate your reward system”.
If scratching hurts your skin the pain can help quell the itch because the two sensations are competing.
Too much scratching can cause injury or infection and if that is the case and the itch is driving you crazy try firmly rubbing the area with a chilled cotton T-shirt instead

2. Humans and dogs.

3. Upper and lower case letters are named ‘upper’ and ‘lower’ because
in the time when all original print had to be set in individual letters,
the upper case’ letters were stored in the case on top of the case that
stored the smaller, ‘lower case’ letters.

4. In the 1500’s Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw, piled high-with no wood underneath.
It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the dogs, cats and
other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it
became slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof, thus
came the saying, “It’s raining cats and dogs.” ?

6. In Shakespeare’s time, mattresses were secured on bed frames by ropes…when
you pulled on the ropes the mattress tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep
on. That’s where the phrase, “good night, sleep tight” came from.
