Electrolyte Imbalance

The body needs electricity to function properly. An electrolyte are mobile free ion that carries electric current in molten stage. From our little knowledge of the process of electrolysis, we know direct current is produced within electrode when they are connected in a solution having electrolyte which could either be a cation (positive charge) or anion (negative charge). Electrolysis is called a decomposition process, but we are not here to discuss electrolysis but to talk about electrolyte imbalance.



Electric current is essential for the body to function and what provides this are called electrolytes. These ions include potassium, sodium, calcium, bicarbonate etc. This electrolytes interacts with the cells in the tissues, muscles, and nerves. Good fruit and vegetable could be a good source of this electrolyte. The balance of these electrolytes are of great essence because The symptoms of electrolyte imbalance can include twitching, weakness and, if unchecked, seizures and heart rhythm disturbances. Older adult are more at risk if they suffer electrolyte imbalance. Electrolyte regulate nerve and muscle function, hydrate the body, balance blood acidity and pressure, and help rebuild damaged tissue. The muscles and neurons are sometimes referred to as the "electric tissues" of the body. They rely on the movement of electrolytes through the fluid inside, outside, or between cells.

Sometimes the electrolyte in the body could be high or low which leads to imbalance.  This could change are as a result of water level in the body and other factors. Water is good for the body but as the saying goes, too much of everything  is not good. Water could dilute the electrolyte in the body making the ions low If one have issues with low electrolyte, instead of taking water, try coconut water it could help boost some of the electrolyte like potassium because these electrolytes must be replaced to create balance for a healthy body. If the ions (electrolyte) is too high, the kidney filters it to help create balance. The most common imbalance is sodium and potassium. One of TCM best supplement to help replace these electrolytes is TASLY Cen forte Tab. With good functioning kidneys, high electrolytes would be balanced. To stay healthy, taking good nutrition or supplement would make one not run out of electrolytes for balance.

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…

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. 
The reason was that yogurt containe…

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 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 …
