So, much to the disappointment of my wife, whenever we are sleeping in summer I can get a great night’s sleep just about every night.
The reason for this is that I can feel secure in the knowledge that any passing mosquito will do just that… pass.
It will pass me and go straight to her for a midnight snack.
She has tried a number of things like extra B1 but all to no avail.
Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night to find her wildly bouncing around the room with her mosquito killing weapon of choice in hand.
Flailing away at some tiny intruder that has been buzzing around her face waiting for its opportunity to strike.
Ever wondered why some people seem more attractive to mosquitoes than others? Link below.
How to Become Gluten Intolerant
One of the growing tragedies in our modern world is that of the isolation many people experience due to not having some kind of hip disease or condition.
Lacking any recognisable or popular intolerance can leave a person finding themselves on the outer at social gatherings and events or worse still not even invited in the first place.
When the conversation turns to the latest greatest condition that everyone else seems to have these people are left to their own thoughts in their own little worlds having no common disease with which to share and discuss with others.
If this is you then there is hope on the horizon. Modern guru JP Sears has nothing but your best interests at heart and by watching the video below you too can join in the fun.
Don’t let your lack of condition become your condition because in a few easy to follow steps you too can become gluten intolerant and amaze your friends!
Is Makeup Bad For You?
Given that the overall theme of this site is concerned with getting rid of acne the subject of makeup is one that needs to be discussed.
As far as the current evidence goes and especially the anecdotal portion of that evidence is concerned, once again we hit a yes and no situation.
Most high quality makeup does not usually cause acne and in fact that is probably a misleading statement in the first place.
Let try to be more clear.
Makeup itself does not cause acne.
However poorly made makeup or low quality makeup will absolutely bring on an acne breakout in someone that already had the precursors in place for the condition.
Those precursors are more to do with the internal balance of the individual and have little to do with what is happening on the outside, the skin.
Unfortunately when a person already predisposed to acne uses cheap makeup, the resulting outbreak is completely displayed on the skin.
So naturally we all then look at what we put on the skin to “cause” it.
This is generally how the whole subject of acne has become a skin based discussion rather than an internal balance discussion.
Anyway, the video below goes into a little of the science behind makeup and exactly what is going on with it if you are using it.
The Most Pretentious Diet Plan Yet
Came across these handy diet tips today and given their source I had to pass them on.
Forget all those studies and sciency things!
What you need is advice from the greatest nutritional resource on the planet today… instagram.
Let’s face it, if it wasn’t true then it would totally not be on Instagram right?
Coconut Oil Tips
One of the recent darlings of the health food world has been coconut oil and as it turns out, for very good reasons.
I first came across it as a way to help whiten teeth and maintain oral hygiene and found it to be very effective.
One of the reasons for that is that coconut oil acts as an antiseptic to the exact form of bacteria that causes the buildup of plaque, tooth decay and gum disease.
In fact the combination of coconut oil and other natural products like strawberries have been shown to be just as effective as any commercial antiseptic mouthwash.
However the uses of coconut oil are not just limited to that and because of its unique properties it lends itself to a multitude of uses from both a health perspective and a domestic one too.
Living in Mold Prone Areas
This may or may not apply to you depending on where you live and what the prevailing climate conditions are.
However if you do live in an area that is prone to mold then it really is a subject you need to be aware of.
Some of the symptoms of exposure to mold can mimic the symptoms of a wide variety of diseases and conditions.
In fact over the years there have been countless stories of hapless patients and their doctors engaging in almost endless searches for the cause of a particular condition only to ultimately find it was exposure to mold.
The article itself hit all the high points and gives a pretty good rundown on the types of symptoms you need to be aware of.

More Food Nasties
As a person who pretty closely follows the world of nutrition, health in general and specifically what nasties are being added I found this article to be a bit of a surprise.
Until I read it I didn’t realize the extent to which cotton processing byproducts had found their way into our food supply especially (as always) in the area of processed foods.
It’s kind of scary when you think about it because of all the agricultural products that have been subjected to mass farming techniques cotton is right up there with the most toxic.
Not only is a huge proportion of cotton already a GMO product designed to internally manufacture it’s own pesticide but it also has an inordinate amount of further chemical exposure in order to get the final product.
When you think about all that and then realize that the elements we use for food are byproducts of the industrial waste of the process you can’t help but think thats gotta be bad for you!
I have seen cottonseed oil around the place and never really gave it a second thought.
I just figured like most people that it was well, oil, from the seeds of cotton right? As usual there is much more to the story and the article below is quite an eye opener.
Information on Ticks
For anyone that like to get out into the wilds or lives close to the ocean this article is a must.
I would also add that if you have pets, especially dogs, you also need to at least be aware of ticks and well versed on dealing with them.
