Now that I’m 50

The age is a very wonder period in the life of man. It is at these age one celebrates golden jubilee. The idea of a jubilee in the Hebrew tradition is to stay away from your farm work to let the land fallow and before the jubilee year, the Jews are promised harvest that could sustain them for the jubilee year. What I mean and it is common among those of that age, they tend to relax and enjoy the works of their youth.
It is a wonderful year in the life of a man and a year for one to be very conscious about his or her health so one could continue to live to enjoy a pain free golden jubilee. Some had never visited a dentist since they had been born and funny enough some had never checked their blood pressure. This is because you could not be feeling sick and still be hypertensive. And if you are hypertensive, you are susceptible to cardiac arrest or stroke. Let me quickly suggest a TCM product you could use to manage hypertension. Please read about it yourself. I will do a special blog on hypertension Maintaining hypertension. But let me just tell you these two stories. I was on the field and a young man around the age of 25 came to me to check his blood pressure. It was the highest I checked that day and I wonder what could had been the cause? So I causally suggested he go and see a doctor. 3 days later, I saw him in ER section of the hospital and I was told not from a doctor but from his colleague at work that he just complained of a little headache and he slumped. Just towards the weekend, he was gone. Another story to emphasis why you need to check and maintain your blood pressure. Another lady who don't fall sick woke up one Sunday morning while she was preparing for church and suddenly complained of a slight headache. She slumped and on getting to the hospital she gave up the ghost. I am not saying these stories to scare you. But it doesn't take much check your blood pressure; as a matter of fact, it's free.

We know at that age, you would be going very closer to your country life expectancy and symptoms of ageing would set in. Some starts experiencing hair falling and grey hair. But the focus is on dental hygiene. If you are not used to flossing with a dentist, their is a big tendency that at that age, you are very susceptible to bacteria causing stain that your normal tooth paste can't take care off. If you smoke too, at that age, you should have noticed your teeth colouration and the fact that teeth are weak. TCM always have a way out of these. I like to introduce you to a product that could bring out the charm in you once again and take care of your tooth problem so you could enjoy that prime age of 50. And it found in Bella's lab. read more about her research and please leave me a comment.

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…

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…
