Dietitian and Health Care

Another good morning to all of our readers and I'll still remind us that the Black Friday Christmas discount is still on with Jumia. Please take advantage of this offer (80% off), it comes once a year.

Today we shall be talking about food? what is food? is alcohol food or intravenous fluid (drip)? Before I try to answer these complex questions, let me establish the fact that if you eat the right food, you have a high chances of not getting sick. In TCM, we prefer health maintenance through preventive measure, compare to corrective measures. That is why most people ridicule TCM because they prefer corrective measure. Many countries life expectancy is dropping. Nigeria is 47 years. Check your age and compare yourself to people in that country. The earlier we embrace preventive health, the better for us and nutrition is a bale out. FYI we collaborate with orthodox medicine and we are doing our best to limit most of the side effect from using chemotherapy.
Back to the question, alcohol is food, but intravenous fluid is not. Sorry if I confused you. Intravenous food gives nutrition to the patient but alcohol doesn't give any nutrition but let us start by asking ourselves, what is food?
Food is anything we take through the mouth that gives the body nutrient or heat. Intravenous fluid let's say dextrose saline (10% dextrose) could give up to 340 kcal of energy but alcohol give 0 cal of energy yet it's food because it's not administered in the hospital. It's taken through the mouth and it produce heat.

TCM Nigeria is trying to acquire a company that does groceries of healthy and yet delicious food. We love app project so we had made an app for people to place orders and we are going to be blogging on very healthy food. We had discussed moringa and bitter leaf on this blog but we shall be giving you the recipe to preparing the food on the food blog. Just click on the link below to see what to look out for.

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…
