All you need is probably in your kitchen right now, it is funny how the solutions are simpler than what we imagine, try the following ideas for a perfect homemade smile:

The astringent found in strawberries helps to remove surface stains, while vitamin C washes away plaque. Mashing a few strawberries and brushing with the mixture once or twice a week can have positive results, or make sure you chew really well. Strawberries can also help whiten teeth due to containing an enzyme called malic acid and vitamin C.

2. Floss Your Teeth
Flossing is more important than brushing; it can easily remove the staining between your teeth, helping them to look whiter.

3. Baking Soda and Lemon
The chemical reaction of baking soda with the citrus of lemon juice has a smile-brightening effect. Brush with this solution up to once per week.

4. Eat Crunchy Fruits and Veggies
Crunchy fruit or vegetables act like nature’s toothbrush just chewing those removes excess food and bacteria from your mouth and they also help to scrub away surface stains, and the acid in the fruits and vegetables actually keep the teeth whiter.

5. Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
Hydrogen peroxide prevents the growth of bacteria, can help to prevent infections, and prevents bad breath, which often results from bacteria.

6. Use a Straw
There are many drinks that can cause serious damage to the enamel of your teeth such as coffee; tea, soda, and wine, whenever you can try to use a straw to reduce direct exposure to teeth, its not very common to drink wine or coffee through a straw, if not possible just make sure to brush after drinking these beverages..

Interesting tip on using okra/ ochro for diabetes:
Lady Finger for Diabetes
Please note that another name for 
Lady Finger is "OKRA ". 

Take two pieces of Lady Finger and remove/cut both ends of each Piece. Also put a small cut in the middle and put these two pieces in glass of water.

Cover the glass and keep it at room temperature during night.
Early morning, before breakfast simply remove two pieces of lady Finger from the glass and drink that water.

Keep doing it on daily basis. Within two weeks, you will see remarkable results in reduction of your SUGAR. My sister has got rid of her diabetes. She was on Insulin for a few years, but after taking the lady fingers every morning for a few months, she has stopped Insulin but continues to take the lady fingers every day. But she chops the lady fingers into fine pieces in the night, adds the water and drinks it all up the next morning.

Please. try it as it will not do you any harm even if it does not do much good to you, but U have to keep taking it for a few months before U see results, as most cases might be chronic.

The main causes of liver damage are:

1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are the main cause..
2. Not urinating in the morning.
3. Too much eating.
4. Skipping breakfast.
5. Consuming too much medication.
6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best
Cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
8.Consumption of alcohal
9. Consuming overly done foods also add to the burden of liver. Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried
Veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.

We have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits is very important for our body to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals.


Evening 9 - 11pm: is the time for eliminating unnecessary/ toxic chemicals (de- toxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in a un relaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on her health.

Night at 11pm - 1am: The de-toxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 1 - 3am: de-toxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

Early morning 3 - 5am: de-toxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this time. Since the de-toxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.

Morning 5 - 7am: de-toxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

Morning 7 - 9am: Absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 -10am rather than no meal at all. Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals.

Midnight to 4am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood.

** pulmonary embolism **
What is pulmonary embolism?
Pulmonary embolism is the sudden blockage of a major blood vessel (artery) in the lung, usually by a blood clot . In most cases, the clots are small and are not deadly, but they can damage the lung. But if the clot is large and stops blood flow to the lung, it can be deadly. Quick treatment could save your life or reduce the risk of future problems.

What are the symptoms?
The most common symptoms are:

Sudden shortness of breath.
Sharp chest pain that is worse when you cough or take a deep breath.
A cough that brings up pink, foamy mucus.
Pulmonary embolism can also cause more general symptoms. For example, you may feel anxious or on edge, sweat a lot, feel lightheaded or faint, or have a fast heart rate or palpitations.

If you have symptoms like these, you need to see a doctor right away, especially if they are sudden and severe.

What causes pulmonary embolism?
In most cases, pulmonary embolism is caused by a blood clot in the leg that breaks loose and travels to the lungs. A blood clot in a vein close to the skin is not likely to cause problems. But having blood clots in deep veins (deep vein thrombosis) can lead to pulmonary embolism. More than 300,000 people each year have deep vein thrombosis or a pulmonary embolism.1

Other things can block an artery, such as tumors, air bubbles, amniotic fluid, or fat that is released into the blood vessels when a bone is broken. But these are rare.

What increases your risk of pulmonary embolism?
Anything that makes you more likely to form blood clots increases your risk of pulmonary embolism. Some people are born with blood that clots too quickly. Other things that can increase your risk include:

Being inactive for long periods. This can happen when you have to stay in bed after surgery or a serious illness, or when you sit for a long time on a flight or car trip.
Recent surgery that involved the legs, hips, belly, or brain.
Some diseases, such as cancer, heart failure, stroke, or a severe infection.
Pregnancy and childbirth (especially if you had a cesarean section).
Taking birth control pills or hormone therapy.
You are also at higher risk for blood clots if you are an older adult (especially older than 70) or extremely overweight (obese).

How is pulmonary embolism diagnosed?
It may be hard to diagnose pulmonary embolism, because the symptoms are like those of many other problems, such as a heart attack, a panic attack, or pneumonia. A doctor will start by doing a physical exam and asking questions about your past health and your symptoms. This helps the doctor decide if you are at high risk for pulmonary embolism.

A very good article which takes a minute to read, about Heart Attacks and drinking warm water

The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea or hot soup with their meals, not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating.

Sometimes its nice to have a cold drink after a meal especially in summer. However, the cold drink or cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed and will slow down the digestion. Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine which soon turns into fats blocking your arteries.

Common Symptoms Of Heart Attack...

Not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting and you may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.

Vacutainer tubes: 
-Purple or lavender - contains EDTA. This is a strong anticoagulant and these tubes are usually used for complete blood counts (CBC) and blood films. Lavender top tubes are generally used when whole blood is needed for analysis. 
-Green - Contains sodium heparin or lithium heparin used for plasma determinations in clinical chemistry
-Black - Used for ESR also known as Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate or "sed rate."
-Grey - These tubes contain fluoride and oxalate. Fluoride prevents enzymes in the blood from working, by preventing the stage called glycolysis so a substrate such as glucose will not be gradually used up during storage. Oxalate is an anticoagulant.
-Red top PLASTIC tubes: Contains a clot activator and is used when serum is needed
-Orange or Grey/Yellow 'Tiger' Top: Contain Thrombin, a rapid clot activator, for STAT serum testing
-Light yellow - Contains sodium polyanethol sulfonate (SPS). Used for blood culture specimens or acid-citrate-dextrose (ACD), used for blood bank studies, HLA phenotyping, and parental testing.
-Light blue - Contain a measured amount of citrate. Citrate is a reversible anticoagulant, and these tubes are used for coagulation assays. Because the liquid citrate dilutes the blood, it is important the tube is full so the dilution is properly accounted for.

On examination, general findings of DKA may include the following:

Ill appearance
Dry skin
Labored respiration
Dry mucous membranes
Decreased skin turgor
Decreased reflexes
Characteristic acetone (ketotic) breath odor

Laboratory Tests:

Serum glucose levels
Serum electrolyte levels (eg, potassium, sodium, chloride, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus)
Amylase levels
Urine dipstick
Ketone levels
Serum or capillary beta-hydroxybutyrate levels
ABG measurements
Bicarbonate levels
CBC count
BUN and creatinine levels


Treatment of ketoacidosis should aim for the following:

Fluid resuscitation
Reversal of the acidosis and ketosis
Reduction in the plasma glucose concentration to normal
Replenishment of electrolyte and volume losses
Identification the underlying cause
