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…

The Stomach and Sleep

Have you noticed when one have issues with ones stomach (gastrointestinal (G.I) issues), one find it difficult to sleep. They get so common that scientist labelled it: "chicken egg issues". If we may, we could discuss some issues:

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. When the brain is not relax, it produces ghrelin (hunger hormones) while a relax mind produces leptin (hunger suppressing hormone). So if one is not sick,It would be helpful to get quality sleep at the right time. When you don't sleep you risk being obese and obese people wakes up from sleep for acid reflux or chest pain. GERD, Heartburn and Sleep: It is also worthy of note that one should avoid sleeping with his right side, this is…

Yogurt and Serendipity (Probiotic)

As one ages, one ceases to digest the sugar in milk (Lactose) any longer but diary product has been proven to increase longevity then came another diary product the body can digest called yogurt got by serendipity. It was accidentally discovered by the ancient way of storing milk in hot climate. Yogurt is a turkey word which means to thicken. It is agreed by historian that yogurt was accidentally discovered through the process of storing milking in hot climate because they discovered yogurt from Central Asian herdsmen who store extra goat milk in containers made out of animal stomach while they sojourn. They discovered this milk are still edible after it's being preserved for a long time and it thicken after going through a long time in hot sun. Nevertheless, yogurt are prepared by heating up diary product to 85C (185F). We have other myth that it was consumed by the accent Greek as the food of the gods and noted to increase longevity of life.

Dangers of Smoking Cigarette after Meal

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 …

Reasons for Premature Ejaculation and possible remedy

Premature ejaculation occur when a man expel semen immediately with minimal penile stimulation. The question is how premature is premature in sex when some individuals enjoy quickie. So premature is a function of both party having the intercourse but according to International society of Sexual Medicine, they define premature as ejaculation less than one minute after penetration. So no matter how much you love quickie, if you don't last more than a minute in bed then it's abnormal. Maybe you're suffering from premature ejaculation. The statistic of men sufferring from it should scare you, 1 out of every 3 men between the ages of 18 - 59 suffers from it. This should give some concern and hope knowing you're not along in it. Many believe it is psychological but let's view their frame of reference and see it biologically.



Although ejaculation is a reflex action controlled by the central nervous system, when the penis is trapped with blood, it causes an erection. it oc…

#NationalHempDay

The Registrar at National Day Calendar declared National Hemp Day to be observed annually beginning on February 4th, 2019. The cbdMD are honoured as the official founder of the national hemp day.

We have so many myths as how the hemp was discovered to be psychoactive. Some say, it was discovered by hunters. They noticed an environment where monkeys were easily captured. whenever they go there, they see lots of monkey sleeping some with the weed in there hands so they decided to experiment it and ate it and saw the vibes. Some other funny ones say it was a weed a god urinated on I guess that came out of smoking lots of weed. The truth is hemp as existed for a long time now.


Hemp has been a part of human civilization for thousands of years. Hemp fibers were used in some of the earliest civilization to make fabric for clothing and other materials. America's founding fathers drafted early documents on hemp paper and even used a "Hemp for victory" Campaign during the the second…

Cancer is a group of diseases involving abnormal cell growth with the potential to invade or spread to other part of the body. Cancer is mostly caused by life-style. 22% of people with cancer use tobacco that is why the cigarette has it written boldly on the pack that smokers are liable to die young. I something hear people call cigarette cancer stick. 10 percent is caused by obesity. We try to give our readers with sweet tooth a substitute food for there addiction with lower calories in our calorie balance. Poor nutrition, alcoholic intake and one which is worthy of note is genetic mutation. We expose ourselves to electromagnetic material like our mobile phones which is a transceiver. If we have any reason to fear for people livin…
