YOU WILL NEVER LOOK AT THESE LOGOS THE SAME WAY, AGAIN

 


 

Do you see the arrow between the “E” and “x” (in white)?
               I had never noticed it before.



The 2nd and 3rd “T’s” are two people sharing (or fighting over) a
  tortilla and a bowl of salsa.


The world’s most famous bike race. The “R” in “Tour” is a cyclist.
The yellow circle is the front wheel of a bicycle, the “O” is the back wheel.



The arrow means Amazon has everything from A to Z

 
There is a dancing bear above the “ble”. Toblerone chocolate bars originated in Berne, Switzerland, whose symbol is the bear.


See the ” 31” embedded in the ” BR”? Thirty-one-derful flavors!

 



See the gorilla and lioness (in white) facing each other?
   

 

Just think, people get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to dream this up!

NINE (9) THINGS I KNOW ABOUT YOU     
1) You are reading this.     
2) You are human. 
3) You can’t say the letter ”P” without separating your lips. 
4) You just attempted to do it. 
6) You are laughing at yourself.

8) You just checked to see if there is a No. 5. 
9) You laugh at this because you are a fun loving person & everyone does it too.

What Sickness Smells Like

I was fascinated by this article from the National Geographic website on this subject.

“But why would sick people smell differently in the first place? The key is that our bodies are constantly launching volatile substances into the air. They’re carried in our breath and literally ooze from every pore, and they can vary depending on age, diet, and whether an illness has thrown off some cog in our metabolic machinery. Microbes living in our guts and on our skin also contribute to our signature scent, by breaking down our metabolic by-products into smellier ones.

Basically, you’re a walking factory of smells. And if you start paying attention to them, you might notice when something’s off.”

This is an exert from the article on the National Geographic site

The article tells of a woman who can smell Parkinson’s which brought attention to the idea of sniffing for disease.
Anyway it is an article worth reading.

 

 

Humans bodies emit hundreds of volatile organic compounds that can affect our personal scents. When people have various illnesses or conditions, changes in these chemicals can affect the ways our bodies smell.

 

Cholera: Sweet-smelling feces

Pneumonia: Foul breath

Phenylketonuria: Musty sweat and urine

Arsenic poisoning: Garlicky body odor

Diabetes: Fruity urine and breath

Scurvy: Putrid sweat

Inflammation the Curse to Your Health💦

 

I was reading this article today and for those of us that do a lot of reading on health matters we are very well aware that inflammation in the body is basically a death threat. 

Dr. Dwight Lundell – who has been a heart surgeon for 25 years – his words –   without inflammation being present in the body there is no way that cholesterol would accumulate in the wall of the blood vessel and cause heart disease and strokes. Without inflammation, cholesterol would move freely throughout the body as nature intended. It is inflammation that causes cholesterol to become trapped.”

It appears that with bad health most practitioners will dish out medication in the hopes that it will fix the problem. It will not. Getting rid of inflammation from your body is the only way.

As Dr. Dwight Lundell says inflammation is  quite simply your body’s natural defense to a foreign invader such as a bacteria, toxin or virus. 

Here are 3 simple ways to fight inflammation as the good doctor recommends

  1.  Watch what you eat and don’t eat foods that have labels with words you can’t even pronounce or foods that would be better suited for a Sci-fi movie than a human body.  Foods in their natural form are not harmful to the human body.
  2. Watch what you drink.  Many of our beverages-of-choice are acidic and the promote inflammation!  Is that soda, sports drink or alcoholic beverage really worth the ultimate price you pay?
  3. Hydrate!  The blood is 90% water and your body needs LOTS of water to fight inflammation.  But not just any water will do.  Water laced with chemicals out of the tap just worsens your state of inflammation as the body fights hard to process what it isn’t equipped to handle.  On the other hand, most bottled waters not only have chemicals from the plastics but they are void of minerals that the body desperately needs.  For inflammation (and lots of other reasons) you’ll want to drink Electrolyzed Reduced Water.  

Now these are his words, but very much in keeping with what I believe and why I have the best Electrolyzed  Water machine in the world that being the Enagic K8 Kangen Water machine. 

 

Kangen water is pure clean Ionized water with a Ph level of alkaline water that will improve your health and help rid any inflammation in the body. Consequently help to improve your chances of getting obliterating  cancer, cholesterol, and many other disease complications.

Dr Dwight Lundell is very controversial on this subject and been criticized by his profession but I believe it to be very close to the truth and maybe what drug companies do not want to hear. I think he has support about this all around the world.
