HEALTH TIP: An awesome natural antiviral, antibacterial, & antifungal is oil of oregano, a natural substance that is extracted from wild oregano plants. Two key compounds found in it are carvacrol and thymol. Studies have shown that both of these compounds have significant effects on harmful micro-organisms that cause many illnesses in humans. It is important not to confuse oil of oregano with common oregano that is used as a spice for cooking. Common oregano is typically Origanum Marjoram, while oil of oregano is derived from Origanum Vulgare. Oil of oregano has been shown to be an effective pain killer. An article published in Phytotherapy Research describes how oil of oregano surpassed anti-inflammatory drugs in reversing pain and inflammation and is nearly as powerful as morphine as a pain killer. But be careful - pure essential oil of oregano will BURN if you rub it on your skin or lips. When we feel like we’re getting sick, we rub it behind our ears and drink 8-10 drops mixed with orange juice. When you have a toothache or have any kinds of sores or abscesses in your mouth, try using oil of oregano. Since it’s very strong, mix with olive oil and rub around the infected tooth. Interestingly, the thymol in oregano oil is the ingredient in Listerine that fights bad breath! The oil also stimulates the flow of bile, which greatly aids digestion. — with Lisa Puchacz and 20 others.
This is HILARIOUS! I know my fellow nurses/docs/paraprofessionals can appreciate this...and laypersons can, as well. Just think of his arms as the upper part of your heart (atria) and his legs and the lower part (ventricles).

A sad truth
Scientists analyzing kelp off the coast of San Diego confirmed the presence of cesium this week, a radioactive isotope directly linked to the Fukushima Daiichi power plant.
Part of the ongoing “Kelp Watch 2014″ project, government and academic institutions have begun receiving results from samples of Bull Kelp and Giant Kelp collected along the California coast. Despite attempts by the media to downplay the ongoing disaster, the discovery has only confirmed the continued build up of radiation in West Coast waters.
“We’re trying to figure out how much is there and how much is getting into the ecosystem,” said Dr. Matthew Edwards, a professor from San Diego State University. “Things are linked a little more closely than sometimes we’d like to think. Just because it is on the other side of the world doesn’t mean that it doesn’t effect us.”
While the government attempts to reassure the public that there is absolutely no risk whatsoever, tens of millions of doses of Potassium Iodide have been quietly purchased by the Department of Health and Human Services as well as the Pentagon.
With experts predicting a 40 plus year cleanup at Fukushima, the likelihood of increased cesium in the Pacific Ocean seems inevitable.
