Sleeping a little extra

We have so many saying that doesn't encourage us to sleep. Let me start with the Holy books "Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare" (Prov 20:13 NIV). My lecturer do exhort us when he wants to teach us punctuality by saying "If you sleep all the time, what would you be doing when you're dead"? Others say why would you sleep for 8hrs a day? They say if you sleep 8hrs a day, you would have slept 10years of your life away when you are 30years. Now statements like this could be a good motivation towards achieving success because we hear most successful people complain that 24hrs isn't enough. Can we just examine why one needs to sleep a little extra.

Clinical research trial was carried out on four grown adult on sleep disorder for three days, three out of the four had blood glucose level which makes them pre-diabetic. Research has show that the lack of good sleep could lead to heart disease, diabetes, and even obesity.

Sleep disorder affects ones love life. According to research, 26% of people with sleep disorder can't perform in bed because they complain of being tired. Not having enough sleep reduces the leptin level. This is the body hormone that gives you the feeling of being full. People who don't get enough sleep tend to be hungrier and they crave for food with high fat and high calories which would make them gain weight. When one don't sleep, one gets tired and lazy to do regular work out; this could lead to obesity.

Sleep could help reduce pain. When you are in pain and you sleep the pain tend to reduce. That is why some doctors prescribe pain reliever with sedative. If you have sleep disorder or insomnia, TCM has something you might want to consider it's called Melatrol.

Melatrol has combined quality natural ingredients to combat your insomnia on a long term basis: compounds such as melatonin and gamma amino butyric acid are commonly found in healthy people, however many individuals do not produce enough of these compounds, and as a result experience trouble falling asleep and sleeping through the night.......Read more

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…

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?
