Health Oddities Part II

I came across some more tips which were unknown to me and I found quite interesting and worthy of sharing.

- Small cuts or wounds can be disinfected by putting honey on it. A study has shown that honey has the capability of destroying almost any bacteria which could cause an infection.

- Black Pepper is excellent for stopping a bleeding, because it has analgesic, antibacterial, and antiseptic properties. Clean a wound with cold water, sprinkle black pepper on it and apply pressure and the bleeding will stop quickly.

- A lot of back pain can be caused due to the fact that one of your legs may be a little shorter then the other. To be sure, have someone measure your legs and when one of your legs turns out to be not as tall as the other one you may be able to correct the situation by putting an insert in your shoe or seeing a podiatrist.

- When you are trying to quit smoking, but the cravings are getting the best of you, try rubbing the skin between your thumbs, index finger and massage the palms of your hands. It seems to have a calming effect and keeps your hands busy.

- Drinking a fiber supplement like Metamucil before each meal will help lower cholesterol, high blood pressure and blood sugar levels. On top of that, it can decrease the risk of heart disease.

I don't know how well all this works, or if it works at all. I suppose it takes trial and error finding out how true they are and how much value can be placed on them.

It is good knowing we never have to question God's word; they are always true and invaluable!

Proverbs 30:5
Every word of God is pure; He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him.
