AccuTouch

Recently met my friend who is practicing Accu Touch for last few years in Bangalore.
Surprised to see that how we missed this holistic medicine for so long.
This is oldest acupuncture technique without needles.
Healer touches points in hand for few seconds to max 2 minutes.
Only once in a week and it will take few weeks for complete cure.
Fees is affordable and they waive fees for poor.
Initial consultation Rs.300 and later Rs.200 for each session.

Headphones & Earphones Can Cause Permanent Hearing Loss: What You Need to Know

December 1, 2014 Leave a comment

Many people are using headphones for different reasons. Irrespective of reasons the chances of getting hearing loss is very high.

This is what my doctor told me.
When sound waves pass through the ear, it vibrates hair inside the ear. By vibrations sound waves converts to mechanical and later to electrical signals to brain. Putting headphones will increase vibrations a lot and naturally there is high possibility of this hair loss, end up in hearing loss.

Many people around the world are struggling with Lactose intolerance.

Please check Amazon Comments

You can take two of the capsules, grind them up in a pestle or whatever method you have to grind them down to a fine powder, which is easy. Then take the powder and drop in a gallon of milk and shake. Give it 24 hours and you will have very cost effective lactose free milk. This is the same enzyme everyone uses to convert the lactose to glucose, just in a dry format. You can actually tell that the milk is a bit sweeter after 24 hours. This is much cheaper and easier to manage than the liquid drops others offer to do the same thing. Glucose strips show that it works well. This can save you hundreds of dollars over the course of a year.

aeromonas hydrophilia bacteria

May 10, 2012 Leave a comment

If you get cut in a stream, creek, river, or lake in the U.S., you better TELL the hospital to check for aeromonas hydrophilia bacteria. That way, since they won’t think of it, if you tell them first, you might not die.
