Lead (Pb) Poisoning

But if it’s only money these leaders are after, they’ll self-destruct in no time. Lust for money brings trouble and nothing but trouble. Going down that path, some lose their footing in the faith completely and live to regret it bitterly ever after. (1 Tim 6:9-10 MSG)  Today happen to begin the holy week after palm Sunday yesterday. I just thought it wise to draw a lesson from the Holy Book that relates to what we want to discuss today which is birthed from industrialization, a quest towards making money.

Lead is a chemical element with symbol Pb got from it's latin world plumbum. Its atomic number is 82, which belongs to the Metal family on the periodic table. Lead is an important part of industrialization. Product like (in the case of some country they use) leaded paint, leaded gasoline, leaded aviation fuel. Must of the majorly mined lead are used in lead-acid battery for motor vehicles. Some pipes used in delivering waters are made of lead. lead is also used in soldering…

Hunger: One common issues which one is likely to experience is hunger and sleep. When one sleeps, the body doesn't sleep, it works to repair the tissue and muscles for the body to do its function. If we deprive ourselves of sleep, we crave for food. Which result us in taking junk food which result into GI issues.

It was accidentally discovered by the ancient way of storing milk in hot climate. Yogurt is a turkey word which means to thicken.

Ash wednessday (Alternative health benefit)

Today is ash Wednesday, it begins the Christian lent where they have to undergo a forty days fast to share in the suffering of what Jesus did on the cross to save mankind. Though they don't fast on Sunday but in their congregation of worship for the period of the lent, the atmosphere of worship depicts mourning. Some congregation don't use the drum when it's time to play music and the music played during that period usually sound sorrowful. Nevertheless, not all Christians observe lent or understands lent. Christianity in my part of the world is divide into four that I can remember, Roman Catholic, Protestant churches, Pentecostal and traditional religious churches. Lent I guess is mainly practice by the Roman Catholic and Protestant Christians. Our concern today is to tell us how this fast can bring natural healing to the body.

Fast is a practice used in the old times to heal one-selves but still relevant in our modern day. Medicine helps alleviate the outer symptom of si…

Rod of Asclepius (Fiery Serpent on a pole)

Fig1: Rod of Asclepius

The rod of Asclepius takes its name from a greek God Asclepius who is associated with healing and medical art. Looking closely, you notice most medical organizations uses it as a symbol. It is sometimes confused for caduceus which some medical organisations also use in North America.

Fig 2: caduceus
The staff all have their greek history but according to philosophy, I learnt the oldest book in the world is the Bible. So whatever mythology associating a fiery snake upon a pole should be a copy cat.
In the Bible, referenced Numbers 21:8-9, Moses a servent of God who was tasked with taking the Isrealite out of Egypt the land they were held captive, to their promised land. On their journey, guess God wanted to teach them faith (read Num 21:4ff for details) so they were inflicted by a fiery serpent that claimed the lives of many. They needed a doctor or a clinic or a medicine to save them from the serpent's venom, so Moses was tasked …
