What does it mean to 'recover' from CoronaVirus or Covid-19

Along with the daily spikes in confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths, a third, more hopeful number is also ticking upward: the number of people who have recovered from COVID-19, which on Friday topped 219,000.

So far, authorities have confirmed over 1 million cases of COVID-19 and 53,000 coronavirus-related deaths globally. According to predictive models, the pandemic has not yet peaked, meaning the world will continue to see jumps in all three coronavirus categories: cases, fatalities, and recoveries.

To recover form CoronaVirus or Covid-19 means you are just better than before because a virus doesn't die.Using available preliminary data, the median time from onset to clinical recovery for mild cases is approximately 2 weeks and is 3-6 weeks for patients with severe or critical disease.

7 Healthy Reasons to Drink Coffee

7 Healthy Reasons to Drink Coffee

Millions of people start their day with a cup of coffee. The habit of drinking coffee on the way to
office or college has completely settled in the minds of students, clerks, and even moms with kids.
It’s delicious, it smells great, it energizes, and it helps you wake up. However, few people know that
coffee also positively affects health. Here are seven reasons why you should drink a cup or two of
coffee every day.

1) Coffee prevents diseases

Studies conducted at Harvard have shown that 1-3 cups of coffee a day are beneficial to health because such dose significantly affect the risk of diabetes, reducing the probability of its developing. If you drink up to six cups a day, it will reduce the risk of the disease even more. Besides, the consumption of coffee reduces the risk of Parkinson's disease by 80% and the probability of cancer developing by 25%. Women that drink coffee reduce their chances of getting breast cancer by 40%.

2) Coffee helps you train more effectively

Before going to the gym, drink a cup of coffee. It will increase the level of endorphin in your blood in just afew minutes. Endorphins will cheer you up and charge you with vivacity for the upcoming exercises,thereby increasing the effectiveness and duration of training. If you want the best results, drink some coffee before pumping iron.

3) Coffee is good for health

A cup of coffee contains more than a thousand different antioxidants important for health because they lower the inflammation of the joints and remove toxins from the body. And antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which lead to weight gain. The more antioxidants you consume, the better you feel and look.

4) Coffee increases life expectancy

People, who drink coffee regularly, live longer than those who don’t drink it. It’s not very clear why this happens, but scientists tend to associate this with the antioxidants contained in the drink. Besides, coffee reduces the number of snacks you have during the day and improves the effect of exercises. The habit of drinking coffee successfully replaces the habit of smoking, and it’s much healthier, and this also affects life expectancy.

5) Coffee makes you smarter

Coffee not only energizes but also makes you think: the thing is that the main component of coffee,
caffeine, is a natural stimulant. In the modern world, this is the most widely used psychoactive component. Caffeine blocks the effect of adenosine, which strengthens the connections between neurons in the brain and causes the production of other types of neurotransmitters. All this leads to a stimulating effect and positively affects the brain and mood. Regular use of coffee can also help overcome emotional problems and improve cognitive abilities. Studies show that coffee improves thinking ability and problem-solving skills.

6) Coffee is good for the liver

Caffeine in coffee helps self-regulation of the liver. Its regular consumption can reduce the risk of such diseases as liver cancer or cirrhosis, as well as liver failure. In addition, caffeine reduces the likelihood of alcoholic cirrhosis. These benefits don’t apply to other caffeinated drinks, such as black and green tea.

7) Coffee reduces the risk of gout

Gout is painful, and, which is even more sadly, it can affect any person at any age. It strikes the joints and can immobilize a person for quite a long time. Drinking coffee can relieve pain and soften gout. Those, who consume coffee few times a day, have less risk of developing gout. This is due to the same antioxidants, which lower the level of insulin and uric acid which cause gout. The cons of drinking coffee

1) Coffee “kills” vitamins

Under the influence of caffeine, the body loses vitamin B1 which provides and regulates carbohydrate metabolism and the work of nerves. With its lack, the quality of the skin, memory, and hair deteriorates. So next time, think twice before drinking the sixth cup of coffee just to get a couple more hours of surfing the web, browsing your profile on the online dating site, or watching Netflix.

2) It can deplete the nervous system

This is a result of the overdose, when coffee is too strong, and when you drink it too often. At the same time, the amount of substances that transmit signals to your nervous system is significantly reduced. Signs of nervous exhaustion include irritability, depression, frequent palpitation, and insomnia. To prevent this, you need to drink no more than 2-3 cups of coffee a day.

3) It washes off minerals from the body

Due to the diuretic effect, coffee can wash off calcium, magnesium, and other minerals and trace elements from the body. Because of this, a person, who regularly consumes coffee even in normal doses, may experience weakness, depression, heart problems, and headaches. You can partly prevent the excretion of nutrients if you add milk to the drink and consume vitamins and food supplements containing minerals.

How To Remove Stretch Marks Naturally (Works 100%)

How To Remove Stretch Marks Naturally (Works 100%)

Stretch marks are visible greenish lines on the skin surface, with an off-color hue. Stretch marks are mainly found in the abdominal wall, but can also occur over the thighs, upper arms, buttocks and breasts.

Sometimes stretch marks can cover large areas of the body. While pregnancy is the main cause behind stretch marks, other reasons can be sudden gain or loss in weight, rapid growth, heredity factors, stress and changes in physical conditions.
Fortunately, there are several natural ways to reduce the appearance of stretch marks.

1. Potato Juice
Potato juice contains vitamins and minerals that foster growth and restoration of skin cells.
Cut a medium-sized potato into thick slices.Take one of the potato pieces and rub it gently on the stretch marks for a few minutes. Make sure the liquid from the potato covers the affected area.Allow the potato juice to dry for some time and then wash it off with lukewarm water.

2. Sugar
Natural white sugar is one of the best natural remedies to get rid of stretch marks. You can use the sugar to exfoliate your skin.

Mix a tablespoon of raw sugar with some almond oil and a few drops of lemon juice.

Mix it well and apply it on the stretch marks and other skin areas.Gently rub the mixture on the skin for at least 10 minutes every day before taking a shower. Do this for a month or so and watch your stretch marks become lighter.

3. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is effective in the treatment of many skin problems. It has various essential nutrients and active compounds that can be used in the treatment of minor burns, while its healing and soothing properties can be used to get rid of stretch marks. There are a couple of ways to apply it.
You can directly rub aloe vera gel on the affected skin area, leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse the skin with lukewarm water.Another option is to make a mixture with one-fourth cup of aloe vera gel, oil from 10 vitamin E capsules and oil from five vitamin A capsules. Rub this mixture onto the skin until fully absorbed. Repeat this process daily.

4. Water
Keeping your body well hydrated helps protect the skin from many kinds of problems. Well-hydrated skin results in regular detoxification of skin pores and restores elasticity, which will help a lot in getting rid of stretch marks. Try to drink one to two glasses of water several times during a day. Experts say a minimum of 10 glasses of water per day is the best way to keep the body hydrated.
It will also make your skin soft and help maintain its elasticity. It is advisable to avoid coffee, tea or soda as they can cause dehydration.

5. Lemon Juice
Another simple ways to lessen stretch marks is to use lemon juice. Lemon juice is naturally acidic which helps heal and reduce stretch marks, skin injuries, acne, and other scars.
Rub fresh lemon juice gently onto the stretch marks using circular motions. Allow the lemon juice to soak into your skin for at least 10 minutes before rinsing it off with warm water.Another option is to mix equal quantities of cucumber juice and lemon juice and apply the mixture on the stretch marks.

6. Olive Oil
Olive oil contains a lot of nutrients and antioxidants that help improve various skin problems including stretch marks.

Massage slightly warm pure olive oil into the affected skin area. This will improve the blood circulation and reduce the stretch marks to a great extent.Leave it for half an hour so that the vitamins A, D and E present in the oil are absorbed by the skin.

You can also mix olive oil with vinegar and water and use it as a night cream. This will keep your skin stay moisturized and also exfoliate the skin.

"Skin is 75 percent collagen, which is responsible for making it smooth and elastic. To make collagen in the body, you need enough protein in your diet," shares Lisa Hayim, registered dietitian and founder of The WellNecessities. "These can be found in low-fat foods and cholesterol sources through whole grains and legumes, such as beans, peas and lentils."


Already melting away fat with tea? Now it's time to melt away stretch marks. "Its fluid is hydrating, so it plumps up cells to help skin look fuller, more supple and less withered," The Nutrition Twins comment. "Plus, it contains powerful antioxidants that help to keep cells healthy and fight damage, including the damaged cells from stretched skin." Kelly Choi, food journalist and author of The 7-Day Flat-Belly Tea Cleanse, adds that tea can help slow the aging process. "According to a Case Western Reserve University study, an extract of white tea leaves may help fight wrinkles and keep your skin looking young," Choi says. Her book and tea cleanse plan has been such a hit that test panelists lost up to 10 pounds in one week!


Better start loading up on this nutritious mineral! "Zinc is essential for collagen production, which is the connective tissue that holds the skin together. Zinc is also necessary to repair skin wounds," offers celebrity nutritionist Lisa DeFazio, MS, RDN. "Zinc-rich foods include meats, fish, Brazil nuts and turkey." If you want to keep your zinc intake to plant-based foods, follow this list from Julieanna Hever, MS, RD, CPT, a plant-based dietitian and author of The Vegiterranean Diet and The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition: Beans, peas, lentils, peanuts, tofu, tempeh, nuts, seeds, and oatmeal. So many options!


"Hydrate! In order to keep your skin more elastic, make sure to stay well-hydrated," Hever suggests. "Consume at least half of your body weight (in pounds) in ounces of water every day. For example, a 130-pound woman should aim to drink 65 ounces of water each day. Emphasize water-rich foods like fruits and vegetables in your diet for further hydration along with added crucial nutrients and fibers, too." If you get bored with plain water, try one of these 50 Best Detox Waters for Fat Burning and Weight Loss.


"Vitamin D plays a role in skin regulation, and, therefore, may play an important role in stopping the epidermal atrophy that occurs from overstretching or rapid growth," comments Hayim. "Fish oil is one of the richest sources of vitamin D, followed by swordfish, tuna, and egg yolks." Bonus: Fish oil may also help you beat belly bloat.



But really, though. "It's reason number 999 to eat at least nine servings of fruits and vegetables each day," Hever states. "They contain an abundance of key nutrients for skin health such as vitamin A (found in dark orange, red, and green foods), vitamin C (in citrus, berries, and melons), and E (in avocados and leafy green vegetables)."


Their vibrant hue and refreshing taste might perk you up like it ain't no thang—and it turns out they may work to perk your skin up, too: "Oranges are rich in water and help to fill the spaces between cells, minimizing the appearance of stretch marks," explain The Nutrition Twins, Lyssie Lakatos, RDN, CDN, CFT and Tammy Lakatos Shames, RDN, CDN, CFT, authors of The Nutrition Twins' Veggie Cure. "Plus, their vitamin C helps to make skin more supple and their antioxidants help heal the body from damage." For more foods that are awesome choices for antioxidants, check out these 15 Most Antioxidant-Packed Fruits & Veggies—Ranked!


Incorporating healthy fats into your diet will also provide elasticity and promote healthy skin, suggests DeFazio. "Avocados are an excellent source of vitamin E and will help prevent stretch marks," she says (see tip #16!). Be sure to check out our 8 Best Fats for Weight Loss!


ICYMI: Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid your body can't make, and is, therefore, essential to get through the diet. And omega-3 fatty acids play an important role in skin health, too. "They help promote growth and skin repair by keeping skin moisturized and reducing inflammation," offer The Nutrition Twins. Fish is a great way to get omega-3s, but make sure you're choosing the right kind with our exclusive ranking of fish.

You already love popping 'em in your overnight oats, so why not find more ways to add these wholesome rockstars to your diet? "The American Academy of Dermatology notes that vitamins and other nutrients have antioxidant properties that protect the body from the free radicals that are partly responsible for stretch marks," states Hayim, who recommends adding these fruits into your routine on the reg. "These are available in the form of supplements, but it is better to get these nutrients from your diet to maintain skin health."


It's hard to find something more delicious than the humble sweet potato. And your skin cells may love them as much as your taste buds: "Sweet potato is one of the richest sources of Vitamin A, which aids in the development of new skin cells and can help diminish the stretch marks. Some other good sources of vitamin A are cantaloupe, dark leafy greens, and mangoes," offers Hayim. Bonus: We've got you covered in sweet potato-ville with 20 sweet potato recipes for weight loss!


Not just an infused water hero, cukes reign supreme as an all-around champ: "Cucumbers' high water content help us to stay hydrated, which promotes skin elasticity and collagen formation. In addition, staying hydrated helps flush out toxins and maintain a healthy skin complexion," says Hayim. No wonder they are so great at de-puffing undereye circles!


We're all about this juicy, red, seeded fruit: "They are rich in vitamin C, which helps with collagen formation," offer The Nutrition Twins. "Collagen helps to keep your skin strong, yet elastic, making stress marks less likely. Tomatoes are also rich in lycopene, which acts as a natural sunscreen. The sun creates more damage, making stress marks worse, so tomatoes protect against this." Amazing hack we bet ya didn't know: Cooked tomatoes are actually richer in lycopene than raw. For more incredible tips like that, check out these 32 Kitchen Hacks for Healthy Eating.

15 & 16

"Collagen treatment for stretch marks have been effective in reducing indentation," shares Hayim. "These two foods are very high in Vitamin C, which is necessary to make collagen." Both happen to be excellent omelet stuffings, too. Just sayin'.


"Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, they will help to minimize inflammation that is associated with damage from stretch marks," comment The Nutrition Twins. "Their oils also help to moisturize the skin and keep it hydrated and smooth, reducing the appearance of stretch marks." P.S. This oceanic rockstar also made our list of the 30 best foods that uncover your abs for under $1!

18, 19 & 20

"Vitamins A, C, and E promote healing," says DeFazio. "Vitamin C helps to limit stretch mark development because it aids in skin collagen formation. Vitamin A contributes to the development of skin cells, and Vitamin E helps the body create more Vitamin C." Foods high in vitamin C include oranges, sweet potatoes, and blueberries while vitamins A and E are found in dairy products, avocados, and sunflower seeds. Hello, yogurt and berries snack break...


Whether you flip 'em, boil 'em, or scramble 'em, these oval-shaped stars may be beneficial to combatting stretch marks. "They're a great source of protein, which is essential for youthful skin. Collagen is made from protein, and collagen is responsible for our skin's elasticity," say The Nutrition Twins. "The more elastic the skin, the less likely to show stretch marks."

Reaveled: Cancer Is Not A Disease But Business!

Reaveled: Cancer Is Not A Disease But Business!

The word called cancer is a lie…
You might not believe this but cancer is not a disease; it is a business.

Cancer has become widespread; it has affected the old, young, baby and everyone.

Sharing this wonderful post will expose many of the hidden hands of the world’s manipulators and annoy them.

Do you know that the book “World Without Cancer” has up till now been prevented from being translated into many world languages?

Know this: there is no disease called cancer. Cancer consists of only a deficiency of vitamin B17. It is nothing else.

Avoid chemotherapy, surgery and or taking medicines with strong side effects.
You would recall that in the past, quite a large number of seamen lost their life to a named disease (scurvy); a disease that took the life of numerous people as well. And a number of people got an enormous income from it. Afterwards, it was discovered that scurvy was just a deficiency of vitamin C. That means it wasn’t a disease (illness).
Cancer is also just like that! The colonizing world and the enemies of humanity established the cancer industry and made it into a business. from which they earn billions in income.

The cancer industry flourished after world war II. To fight cancer, all these delays, details and enormous expenditures are not needed. They only go to line the pockets of colonizers, especially since the cure for the condition was found long ago.

The prevention and cure of cancer will be obtained simply through the following strategies:

Those who have cancer should first try to know what cancer is. Do not panic! You should investigate the condition.

Nowadays does anyone die of an illness called scurvy? No. Because it gets cured.
Since cancer is only a deficiency of vitamin B17, eating 15 to 20 pieces of apricot stone/nucleus (fruit stone) everyday is enough.
Eat wheat bud (wheat sprouts). Wheat bud is a miraculous anti-cancer medicine. It is a rich source of liquid oxygen and the strongest anti-cancer matter named laetrile. This matter is present in the fruit stone of apple and is the extracted form of vitamin B17 (Amygdalin).

The American medicinal industry has started implementing the law forbidding laetrile production. This medicine is being manufactured in Mexico and gets smuggled into USA.

Dr. Harold W. Manner, in a book named “Death of Cancer” has stated that the success of cancer treatment with laetrile is as high as above 90%.

Sources of Amygdalin (Vitamin B17)
The foods containing vitamin B17 include the following:

-The fruit stone or grain(seed) of fruits. This contains the highest amount of vitamin B17 in nature. This includes fruit stone of apple, apricot, peach, pear, and prune (dried plum).

-Common beans, corns(grains), which include bean, lentil sprout (lentil bud) Lima (Lima beans) and pea.

-Kernels: Bitter Almond (Richest source of vitamin B-17 in nature) and Indian almond.
-Mulberries: almost all mulberries such as black mulberry, blueberry, raspberry and strawberry.

-Seeds (Grains): sesame and linseed (seed of linen/flax seed).

-Groats of oats, barley, brown rice, groats of block wheat, linseed, millet and rye.
This vitamin is found in grains and fruit stones of apricot, brewer’s yeast, rough rice (paddy) and sweetmeat pumpkin.
List of Anti-Cancer Foods
•Apricots (kernels/seeds)
•seeds from other fruits like apples, cherries, peaches, prunes, plums, pears
•Lima beans
•Fava beans
•Macadamia nuts
•Bean sprouts
All are the highest sources of absorbable vitamin B17.
Ingesting dishwashing liquids (used in the kitchen) and hand washing liquid (used in the restroom) bis the main cancer causing factor so your eating of them should be restricted.

You will surely say that we do not eat them!
However, you daily wash your hands with hand washing liquid and wash your plates with dishwashing liquid.
The liquid is absorbed and will not leave the plate with washing. When cooking or eating food, the soap in the plate or dish gets attached to the hot food and so we end up eating the dishwashing liquid with our food. Even if you rinse the plate hundreds of times, that will be of no use.
But the solution is to pour half of the dishwashing liquid and hand washing liquid and top it up with vinegar.

It is as simple as that.
Do not eat blood cancer causing agents and also save your family from this danger.
Similarly, seriously desist from washing vegetables with even a few drops of dishwashing liquid because irrespective of how much you would rinse them, the chemicals would have already entered the tissues of the vegetable and will not get rinsed away.

Instead, soak fruits and vegetables with salt and then rinse with water. And to keep them fresh, add vinegar.

Living with Diabetes

Living with Diabetes.

So most people think it's easy living with Diabetes and it's really not. I have an aunt who's been living with this chronic disease for over 20 years now. I've lived with her and I've seen how difficult life really is for her. Diabetes is a chronic disease meaning it can't be healed but it can be managed. Most people plan their own funerals once they are diagnosed with the illness. It's not as bad as it seems, Diabetes is a disease that limits you from sugary things,I think it's been said that those with diabetes have an abnormally high level of sugar. They have more sugar than needed in their systems.

I asked my aunt if she ate a lot of sweets as a child because I needed to prevent getting it in future. And her answer left me astonished,she doesn't have a sweet tooth and she never did. She wasn't a sugary things person. I was curious and asked how come she got it then,she told me it's not contagious but it's most certainly hereditary. She inherited it from her great grandmother and it's possible that her great grand kids might inherit it from her since all her kids are tested negative from it.
It scared me a little when she added that even I could get it or my kids could get it since we are all blood relatives.

How she manages Diabetes.
She's a type 1 diabetic and she relies on injections on a daily basis to sustain it. She uses an injection called Apidra to reduce her sugar level and it also provide glucose to her as a person with diabetes have little glucose in their system,if she eats too much then she has to inject herself with Apidra to keep her sugar levels balanced.  Apidra and Actraphane do the same jobs. Then there's Lintel which she's not certain what it does to her body but she was told it's a necessity and she inject her self once a day as soon as she wakes up. She relies on this two to keep her sugar levels balanced.

Diabetes is not a death penalty it can be managed. Don't be afraid.

Don't let germs threaten your health

Wage war against germs

germs vs health

part 1

Many people are aware of th tiny, disease-causing germs around them and now they need to know more about what to do with these 'enemies'. You should be equipped for battle and more aware of your 'defense' against diseases.

Your skin is your first line to defense against disease. It forms a covering around your body and prevents germs from getting inside. However, if you fall off your bicycle or trip over something and fall and injure your skin, germs may enter your body through the break in the skin. Washing and covering the broken skin with a plaster or clean bandage can help keep the germs out of your body.

Your eyebrows, eyelashes and eyelids help to protect your eyes from germs. When you are outside on a windy day, blinking your eyes will help to keep the dust from entering your eyes. Your tears also contain a substance that protects your body against the germs.

Suppose you inhale dust, then the tiny hairs in your nose trap the dust and keep the germs from entering your body. Sneezing will help get rid of the germs. If germs enter your body through your mouth, the saliva in your mouth and the acid inside your stomach help to destroy the germs.

Sometimes germs enter your blood or your body cells. Then your white blood cells help to protect your body against these germs. They surround the germs and destroy them before they can cause any harm.

Knowing this, you don't have to be afraid because most of the time you will keep well even when germs do enter the antibodies in your body. When, for instance, a germ enters your body, antibodies will be produced to kill that germ. You will then get well.

Another way to develop immunity is by receiving a vaccine. A vaccine causes th body to form antibodies against a particular disease. A vaccine can be given by a doctor or nurse by injection or by mouth.
