Use Blood Glucose Monitors

1) Open the package with extreme caution.

2) Make sure that you have washed your hands with mild soap before proceeding further.

3) Take out the lancing device, glucose monitoring strips and the blood glucose monitor.

4) Insert a fresh (unused) lance in the lancing device. Now you need to set it to 3, which is usually achieved by rotating the base. Prime it.

5) Insert the code chip into the receptacle.

6) Once you’re done, turn on the device and wait till a code appears on the digital display. If no code appears, it means that the monitor and test strip is not synchronized properly.

7) Take out an unused glucose strip and be ready with it. Hold the lancing device vertically on the tip of your finger and release the trigger. A fine and tiny hole will be punctured in your skin. If you can’t see a small drop of blood, you might press around the area till you can.

8) Switch on the blood glucose monitor and pause until the blood icon flashes. After that, sweep the end of the glucose strip athwart the drop of blood.

9) Insert the glucose strip into the receptacle and wait for the results.

10) Note down the reading and remove the used lance as well as the glucose strip. Discard them. Turn off the device and keep it in a safe place.

Remedy for Nail Fungus

Hence everyone needs to be cautious about this painful ailment and if it cannot be prevented at all, then it is more likely that the patients will look out for some easy home remedies for quick relief, rather than the expensive medicines and ointments prescribed by the doctors for its cure.

So hereby, some easily available home remedies are discussed which are sure to be beneficial for the patients suffering from nail fungus.

Application of garlic juice and vinegar – Garlic is always considered as a very effective herbal treatment for any kind of fungal infection, due to its anti fungal quality. Hence, when few cloves of garlic are crushed to make a paste and mixed with a little amount of white vinegar, this mixture makes a wonderful remedy for nail fungus, if applied directly on the infected nails regularly. The daily consumption of raw garlic with water is also a good option for preventing fungal attack.

Soaking of nails in diluted apple cider vinegar – Apple cider vinegar is known for its highly acidic nature, which has proved to be effective in killing the fungi and thus stopping their growth on the infected nails. Therefore, some amount of apple cider vinegar should be mixed with the same amount of normal water, and then the fungi-infected nails have to be soaked in this liquid for minimum 30 minutes per day for obtaining the best result.

Commonly used mouthwash in diluted stage – The usual mouthwash daily used at home is known to have antiseptic and anti fungal properties, which actually kill the bacteria of the mouth. Hence this same quality can be used in the treatment of nail fungus too, by dipping the affected nails in a little amount of mouthwash for at least 15 minutes regularly.

Rubbing Vicks Vaporub over the affected nails – Vicks VapoRub is the most popular decongestant which is usually rubbed on chest for curing the common cold, but this same ointment can provide great results in destroying fungi when applied over the infected nails before sleeping at night, and then the affected hand or foot should be covered with glove or socks for retaining the warmth given out by Vicks VapoRub.

Alkaline Water

Why is it that some believe alkaline water can cure cancer? According to the manufacturers of the ionizing machine it’s because the water becomes an anti-oxidant. What this means is that it takes on surplus electrons that can then get rid of “free radicals”. Free radical damage in the body is supposed to be the cause of serious diseases like arthritis and cancer.

Getting rid of free radicals (which are presumed to be running unchecked in our bodies) will reverse these terrible diseases.

While this sounds very plausible, it doesn’t take into account that our bodies actually have devastatingly powerful NATURAL anti-oxidants which are MILLIONS of times more effective!

A bit of a problem crops here. Is alkaline ionized water REALLY an anti-oxidant as claimed? Well, consider this: Did you know that alkaline water can bleach the color from iodine? What is significant about this? It does this (wait for it… ) because it’s an OXIDANT! Think of bleach. The oxidizing power of bleach can do the same thing!
Anti-oxidant that can cure cancer? I don’t think so.

ACIDITY IN YOUR BODY CAN BE REVERSED BY DRINKING ALKALINE WATER.

All your body fluids have different pH readings. Some are alkaline others acidic.

An example is stomach acid. It has to have a low pH (Acidic) or your food would never be digested. On the other hand your blood has to be slightly alkaline or you will die. The body has excellent mechanisms for maintaining these balances. So, biologically speaking, alkaline water cannot change these measurements.

If we’re on the subject of biology, why don’t we discuss what would happen if you were to drink a glass of alkaline ionized water? Your very acidic gastric juices will strip the water of alkalinity. So acidic water will enter your intestines. The next step is that pancreatic fluids will neutralize the acidity of the water and make it? – ALKALINE!
