Is Your Shower Making You ILL💦

 

This is an interesting subject as we often think our shower is the most hygienic way of  keeping ourselves clean and healthy. Apparently not so. According to a team from the University of Colorado after intensive research found that some household shower heads contain a strain of lung-disease causing bacteria,  which is known as mycobacteria. This bacteria appears as a film of thin green slime and that can result in a lung infection that may cause coughing, shortness of breath, fatigue and weight loss which if infected can take at least 12 months of antibiotics to treat. Metal shower heads were found to have significantly than plastic ones (probably because the plastic has more chemicals that stop the growth) . They also found tap water was more contaminated than tank water. It is also interesting to note that this bacteria is resistant to chlorine. The suggestion is that you need to take the shower head off at least once a month and give it a good clean.

 

My suggestion is of course the Enagic shower system called Anespa DX.

ANESPA DX produces a continuous stream of healthy ionized mineral water. With a new, larger ceramic cartridge that removes almost 100% of chlorine and other harmful substances in your tap water, and adds safe, moisturizing minerals that are healthy for your skin and hair.

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

A Piece Of Useful Information For A Cough

images

You wonder?

This is a very helpful remedy for coughs……

Now that the cold & flu season is upon us, here’s an e-z remedy that certainly can’t hurt trying.

Vicks vapo-rub

During a lecture on essential oils, they told us how the foot soles can absorb oils.

Their example: put garlic on your feet and within 20 minutes you can ‘taste’ it.

Some of us have used vicks vaporub for years, but i’ve never heard of this. And don’t laugh!

It works 100% of the time, although the scientists who discovered it aren’t sure why.

To stop night time coughing in a child (or adult as we found out personally),

Put vicks vaporub generously on the soles of your feet,

Cover with socks, and the heavy,

Deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many,

Many hours of relief.

Works 100% of the time and is more effective in children than even very strong prescription cough medicines.

In addition, it is extremely soothing and  comforting and they will sleep soundly.

Just happened to tune in a.m. Radio and picked up this guy talking about why cough medicines

In kids often do more harm than good, due to the chemicals in them.

This method of using vicks vaporub on the soles of the feet was found to be more effective

Than prescribed medicines for children at bed time. It also seems to have a soothing and calming effect

On sick children who then went on to sleep soundly.

My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant

And persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked 100%!

She said that it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her,

Coughing stopped in a few minutes.

So she went from every few seconds uncontrollable coughing and slept cough-free for hours every night she used it.

If you have grandchildren, pass this on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be amazed at how it works.

Try it the next time you get a bad cold.

The only thing you can lose is your cough.

Did you know according to Pew Research Centre that 61% of Americans search the internet for medical info.
It seems that too much privacy can be bad for your health and sharing your health problems may actually cure or at the least give you some relief. It appears when patients swap health stories their information and wisdom sharing is far better than what they learn at the doc’s.

You are able to discuss reactions to different drugs, symptoms you have, discuss medical tests you may have had with others with similar disorders.

There is room for concern when it comes to health sharing sites because of overload of data and misinformation. The wisest thing to do of course is combine online info with your Doctor.

Many Americans are not insured so going to see the doctor can be a financial burden. Maybe with some discussion online you are able to solve your problem and save that trip to the doctor.
