We’re making progress! The Yoga Meditation Bench, aka the
TreeLight Yoga Bench, is coming ever closer to fruition, along with a book!
Healing Liver Spots
A series of freckles, liver spots, or brown spots have been reducing in size, or effectively falling off and being replaced with more normal-looking tissue.
The old spots are raised, and get itchy. So after a bit of semi-conscious scratching I’m barely aware of, they come apart, and are replaced by a small red dot that looks like a small bug bite that’s exposing a drop of blood. When they heal, the new spots are still pigmented, but are more of a reddish tan than a dark brown, and they’re flush with the skin. And over time, those spots tend to integrate nicely with the surrounding skin, so the area becomes uniform in color.
The Nutritional Power of Seeds
Seeds are probably the most important food to have in your diet, for many reasons. In India, they aren’t just used for seasoning, they’re a staple!
Is MCT Oil a Scam?
For a long time, I thought so. But recent evidence has me rethinking that conclusion. MCT Oil does leave out an important nutrient for the immune system (lauric acid). But for weight loss and brain fuel, it seems that MCT Oil does have the edge.
Dizziness / Everything Spinning
If you’re fine as long as your head is still, and when you move it slowly, but everything spins when you move it rapidly, there is simple technique that can solve the problem. It’s called the Epley Maneuver.
Nutritional Systems Model
A nutrition-model for the body that focuses on systems.
Vinegar Tea, Avoid Dairy, Wheat
A chronic cough comes from post nasal drip, a result of thickened mucous that doesn’t flow along the membranes like it’s supposed to when it’s more viscous. The quick fix is vinegar tea. A small amount in a glass of hot water (with honey for sweetener) thins the mucous pretty quickly.
Blisters on your Feet
Thin linen socks can solve the problem.
Jammed Finger/Sprained Toe
The simple solution is to wrap it to an adjoining digit.
Bright Lights Hurt Your Eyes at Night
It turns out that is the blue spectrum of light that hurts. It’s more of a problem these days, because there are more cars, and the newer ones tend to be equipped with super bright lights that include a lot of blue. The simple fix is yellow sunglasses. They filter out the blue, so the lights aren’t as painful.
