lysogenic phase of micro-organism

The reason for today's post was born out of a conversation with a friend who wasn't feeling fever and he was tested in the hospital to still have malaria parasite in his blood stream. He told me he doubted the result that if there wasn't a mistake in the test sample, then the hospital is just scamming people with their test result so I gave him a shocker by telling him 95% of Nigerians would be tested positive to malaria even if they  don't feel malaria fever. It turned into a big argument, so I had to leave the scene.
There's a very terrible Sexually transmitted disease  (STD) that act like our argument. when one contact that disease as a male, you see a little sore on male genitals and just less than two weeks it disappears and one assume it had been conquered without medication. The STD would later appear in the future and may be this time it could had cause an impediment to child bearing (i.e.syphilis).  So it is very possible for a pathogen to remain in the body and one don't feel anything. One of the very interesting and popular STD which I believe most persons would guess is HIV/AIDS. The virus is a parasitic organism that doesn't reproduce itself until it is found in its host. And for the case of HIV/AIDS, the body remains the same until it had successful destroyed the immune system and turns into AIDS.

So what exactly is lysogenic phase of micro-organism?  The lysogenic cycle is a viral mode of reproduction where it inserts its genome in the host's DNA, then remains dormant as time goes by. However, though it's dormant, it replicates itself by letting the host cell copy the virus' genetic material in cell division.

Just like normal parasitic relationship, the parasite live off the host and it would exist sometimes in the state of dormancy (with low activities) waiting for the immune system to be susceptible. The micro-organism (pathogen) reproduce with two cycle. One is the lysogenic which acute the host cells with its genetic composition and the lytic phase. The lytic cycle results in the destruction of the infected cell and its membrane. A key difference between the lytic and lysogenic phage cycles is that in the lytic phage, the viral DNA exists as a separate molecule within the bacterial cell, and replicates separately from the host bacterial DNA. The lysogenic cycle can also shift to the lytic cycle. This is evident in viruses that lie dormant for years and then attacks whenever the host's immune system is suppressed or compromised.

Because of the nourishment the pathogen derives from humans, they are very susceptible to their infections. The fact that one is not feeling any symptoms of sickness doesn't negate the presence of pathogen the body. What I could recommend is a TCM product to boast ones immune system. The women are lucky this time because it also help in their hormone system. Click HERE to check out the multivitamins for the immune system. You could also browse the TCM app for a unique immune system builder by downloading TCM app. Click the link TCM and it would direct you to google play store where you could order TASLY A1 capsule after you had downloaded the app. You still have other product you could check out for order with trusted store like Jumia and konga.

The obvious reasons why most persons suffer a lot from this parasite could be traced to drug abuse. We already discussed it but I like to clarify myself. Self medication is a product of drug abuse. Ones refusal to go to the hospital so proper check could be done would result into going to a chemist to pick drugs to cure the symptoms of the sickness and not the pathogen or the root cause of the sickness. Another reason is refusal to complete your drug dosage. for more on drug abuse click HERE. That is why TCM app is working very hard to getting our post out. There is also a slot called drug alert where you are notified one hour before your next medication. In TCM, They are product you take 30 minutes before or after meal. All these are in the app. There are product not recommended for pregnant women or people with liver disease. Download the app and you shall be updated periodically about yourself. So let me steal Jerry Springer's line by saying take care of yourself and each other.

Palm wine and Measles

Measles is a respiratory disease that is highly communicable. It is transmitted by the mucus or saliva of an infected patent. It is airborne and could be transmitted when an affected persons sneezes or cough to the air. It is common among children but on a rare case adult contact it also. It's a very big cause of child mortality. World health organization (WHO) had recorded more than 100,000 children less than the ages of 5 whose life had been claimed by measles in 2016.

One traditional way of treating measles is through Palm wine especial among adult. They drink and sometimes pour a little in their bucket of water when having their bath. Children uses coconut water instead of palm wine because of the alcoholic content of Palm wine. I like us to examine these practice to be sure if Palm wine really helps to solve measles or it's just a myth.

Vaccine is usually given to children against measles called measles vaccine. No particular chemotherapy against measles but supportive ca…

Peppermint oil and Pain Relief

Peppermint oil is one of the oldest European herbs in making medicine. It contains antimicrobial and antiviral activitves. It help relax the gastrointestinal track when used orally. More importantly it has anti-allegenic potential and pain killing effect.
Peppermint oil is an hybrid of spearmint and water mint. The most active ingredient is menthol (50 -60%) and methone (10-30%).
Peppermint oil is very effective in relieving pain and helps relax the muscles. It is used in alieviating a tension headache when applied externally. To use peppermint oil in relieving pain, add 2-3 drops of the oil on the concern area 3 times a day in warm water and little epsom salt. If you want a product already made by a nice alternative company, try to buy nanocool gel. The product is made of peppermint and other ingredients done using nano technology.

Nano technology manupulates molecules to less then a 100 nanometers. This miniaturize the peppermint oil ingredients to give it a quick action effect. If …

How you feel and look when you smile

Smiling would feel good when you gaze through the mirror and you obverse your teeth. How do you feel when after smiling, your smile starts trending as a subject of humor on social media because of teeth coloration. It is worth noting  that the true color of the teeth dentin is yellow. The more you age, the outer part of the teeth called enamel gets worn out revealing the true color of the teeth but they are other factor that also contribute to teeth coloration which are majorly centered on life style. 
One which is worthy of note is fluoride intake. Due to environmental factors, one could come in contact with it in drinking water. or should we start another behavioral communication against the use of tooth paste because we know sodium fluoride is one of the key compound of some toothpaste. should we start a campaign on using chewing stick rather than toothbrush? Some research have it that chewing stick has revealed parallel and at times greater mechanical and chemical cleansing of o…
