intestinal-tract

Kakyoin, Please

In episode 2 of Stardust Crusaders, to possess the nurse, Kakyoin would have had to send Heirophant inside of her. Unlike with Death 13, he clearly doesn’t go in through her ear.

He totally slithered up this nurse’s ass, through her digestive tract, intestines and all, and into her mouth.

Jotaro’s realization…

…and then he kisses her anyways. That’s nasty, Jotaro. Think of all the gunk you’re licking. She’s frothy.

Check out how big Heirophant is, too.

Bonus: Jotaro’s reaction post-kiss. He let go as soon as Star Platinum got a hold of Heirophant’s head.

TLDR; Kakyoin reverse vored this nurse.

Stress-induced changes in maternal gut could negatively impact offspring for life

Prenatal exposure to a mother’s stress contributes to anxiety and cognitive problems that persist into adulthood, a phenomenon that could be explained by lasting – and potentially damaging – changes in the microbiome, according to new research in mice.

When pregnant mice were exposed to stress in the study, it appeared to change the makeup of the bacteria in both their guts and placentas, as well as in the intestinal tracts of their female offspring, researchers at The Ohio State University found. And those microbial changes lasted into adulthood.

On top of that, the mice with stressed mothers struggled in tests aimed at gauging anxiety and cognitive health compared with female offspring of mice that were not stressed during pregnancy. And markers of inflammation increased in the placenta, the fetal brain and the adult brain of the offspring while a supportive protein called brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) decreased.

“More and more, doctors and researchers are understanding that naturally occurring bacteria are not just a silent presence in our body, but that they contribute to our health,” said Tamar Gur, the lead researcher and assistant professor of psychiatry & behavioral health, neuroscience and obstetrics & gynecology at Ohio State.

“These mice were more anxious, they spent more time in dark, closed spaces and they had a harder time learning cognitive tasks even though they were never stressed after birth.” Gur presented the study on Nov. 14 in San Diego at Neuroscience 2016, the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience.

Previous studies have found associations between maternal stress in both animals and people to later mental health and behavioral problems in their offspring. This study could begin to explain what’s at play in that relationship.

“We already understand that prenatal stress can be bad for offspring, but the mystery is how,” said Gur, a psychiatrist who is a member of Ohio State Wexner Medical Center’s Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research.

Gur said microbes from a mother’s gastrointestinal and reproductive tracts are the first to colonize in a developing fetus (and in newborns). That makes the bacteria an interesting potential explanation of why and how stress before an animal or person is born could prompt mental illness that can last a lifetime.

This study is pointing to alterations in the microbes that live in the placenta and outlines changes found in the placentas of fetal mice that had stressed mothers.

Gur and her colleagues found significant microbial changes to the placentas of the female offspring of stressed mice. They also found alterations in inflammation and growth factors in the placenta, pointing to changes in how the microbes were influencing important dynamics before birth.

And in the female offspring of the stressed mice, the researchers found a lower ability to learn and higher anxiety-like behavior compared to the offspring of non-stressed mother mice. Gur said the team found interesting changes in the male offspring as well, but the details of that part of the study are still in the works.

Gur said she wants to know more about the links between the brain and the bacteria that live in the gut, and she and her colleagues have plans to expand their investigation to pregnant women and their babies. Perhaps one day the work will lead to knowledge about how probiotics could help mitigate the effects of stress and the downstream repercussions, but it’s too soon now to say if they would have any impact, she said.

The stressed mother mice underwent two hours per day for seven days of restraint meant to induce stress. For comparison, the researchers left another group of pregnant mice undisturbed during gestation. Gut bacteria were assessed using fecal samples from the mice.

Gur stressed that the message here is not that mothers are to blame should their children suffer mental illness later in life. Rather, she said, this scientific development presents an opportunity to talk more about the importance of mental health in general and during pregnancy.

“As a psychiatrist who treats pregnant women, if you’re stressed, anxious or depressed, I think pregnancy is a prime time for intervention,” Gur said. “And what’s good for mom is good for the baby.”

okay listen up potential pet owners

if you have/are planning to have a hamster or any small rodent then listen up. this post is more specific on hamsters, but is also applicable for other small pets.

  • DO NOT use wood shavings as a bedding. i don’t care what it says on the packet or whatever renowned brand it is. don’t do it. these cause respiratory issues and should never ever be used. ever. the much better alternative is stuff like carefresh (and thats what i use too)
  • DO NOT use the ‘soft fluffy’ beddings they sell for hamsters and other small pets. this stuff is awful. i know the stuff looks and feels so comfy and you think ‘ah my hamster would love this’ but there are so many issues with this stuff. firstly, more respiratory issues. secondly, this stuff can and will block your hamster’s intestinal tract and compact in their stomach. hamsters like to put stuff in their cheek pouches, this stuff can get stuck in there too. tiny legs and arms (front legs?) can get tangled up and injured. you can use things like torn up tissue and toilet roll for this. and it’s best to leave clumps; let your hamster move it and rip it up themselves- it counts as enrichment and gives them something to do!
  • please please please get a cage that’s big enough. and i’m not talking about the ones you see in stores - everywhere. i’ve seen attendants guide a mother and her kid around, pointing out the stuff to get for their brand new hamster… which included wood shavings, fluff bedding, and a tiny cage…
  • carrying on from that last point, as a bare minimum you need something that’s 59cm x 36cm x 25cm. and on top of that you need multiple floors. depending on the size of your small pet, you have to make sure to give them proportional furniture. wheels, hide-houses, etc. chew toys are also a necessity. if your hamster starts chewing the bars, it can mean one of many things. your hamster is bored. the cage is too small and the hamster wants to get out. it’s a bad habit. either way, you need to stop them in whatever way possible. chewing bars could mess up their teeth, and consequently the teeth will grow too long and the hamster could starve since it can’t eat. another possibility is the teeth growing and injuring the hamster and possibly leading to death. note: roborovski shouldn’t be housed in cages with bars as these are very small and nifty critters and they’ll just get the heck outta there.

*an example of a cage you see in pet stores that are faaaaar too small. 


to conclude this ramble, know that although these companies sell materials and pet supplies, they are in it for the money. be wary of the treats as well, since different types of small pet can and cannot eat certain things. i remember reading a review of a woman saying she found apple seeds in her hamsters hanging treat. even though humans can deal with the tiny dose of cyanide, hamsters can’t. i mean, they’re tiny. almonds are also a big no for the same reason. honestly though, you can look up lists of what your pet can and cannot eat and how you should go about it. as an example, a syrian hamster can eat spinach. you have to give them small amounts over a period of time, so they can get used to it without causing an upset stomach.

anyway i hope anything i said has been useful, and please take these into account if you have/are planning on having a small pet. inadequate care for such a small animal could end up killing them.

Quick fact. Ready?
Gassiness is often a by product from the fermentation of fibre in the large intestine. This is why eating vegetables sometimes leads to one feeling more gassy than usual after a high fibre meal.

A Shrexual Birthday

Be 17.

Be turning 18 soon.

Ask parents for Shrek themed party.

Just like the last 12 years.

Mom says I’m too old for Shrek

Tell her she better check herself before she Shrek’s herself

Mom asks if I’ve taken my meds.

I say yes, then ask for an onion flavored cake.

Mom says no.

I call her a Farquaad bitch.

She sends me to my room and tears stream down my face.

Jacking off will probably cheer me up.

Pull out super dreck MLP Friendship is Magic DVD collection

Open them up to see five Shrek discs (including Puss in Boots) that my mom thought were in her room.

Its the 171st day of the year.

Today I am scheduled to masturbate to Artie from Shrek the Third.

Fap furiously when Artie appears and am finished in seconds.

Wipe semen off my chest with Twilight Sparkle stuffed pony.

Start to think about fight with mother again.

Get an idea.

Sneak out of room.

Mom is sleeping.

Go to shed in backyard

Grab the sharpest tool in the shed.

Stand outside Mom’s door.

Too chicken to do it. I pray to Shrek for courage.

The scent of onions fill the room.

A green hand takes the tool from me.

“I’ll take it from here laddie.” Shrek says.

Shrek plants the tool deep in my mother’s body ogre and ogre again.

The stabbing went on for almost an hour.

Blood sprayed all ogre the room and on my body. Especially my hands and arms.

Shrek is finally finished with my mother and he looks at me.

I pull off my blood soaked clothes and poke my butt in the air.

Shrek picks me up with one hand and uses his Schlong to sweep the remains of my mother off of her bed.

Despite the carnage, it still smells like onions.

But now the smell of waffles and litter enter the room as well.

Donkey, Fiona and Puss are suddenly at my side.

All of them are just as nude as Shrek.

Shrek flops down on his back on the bed.

Blood pools around him as his weight squeezes it out of the mattress like a sponge.

He still has me in one hand.

He skewers me on his shrock and begins using my asshole to pleasure himself.

His slimy member provides lube, but it does nothing to stop the anal stretching as it flexibly snakes its way through my intestinal tract.

Princess Fiona jumps on top of me and I silently plead to Shrek that my small dick is enough to please her majesty.

Fiona slips my dick into her snatch and it closes in around my penis.

Her ogress pussy vacuums my dick with the frenzy of a Jack in the Box customer trying to get just one little taste of his ogrely thick milkshake.

It feels as if the inside of my woody is being sucked out my pee hole.

I am now in the middle of an ogre sandwich. An Ogreo if you will.

I motorboat her giant green titties and suck the onion juice out of her nipples.

All the while with Shrek’s green anaconda still slithering inside me.

I turn my head to the left and gasp for breath.

As I do, Donkey stuffs my mouth with his schlong.

It quickly finds its way deep into my esophagus.

I am finding hard to breath with Donkey’s “little Donkey” thrusting within, yet never receding from my gaping mouth as one of my nostrils is filled with snot.

Puss in Boots nimbly climbs up the others and drags his ass and balls on my face.

Puss turns around and I see his small barbed baculum poking out from his fur.

He examines my two nose cunts and thankfully chooses the one already filled with snot to jab his boner into.

It is the greatest moment of my life.

I submit myself completely to Fairy Tale Lands finest.

The amount of movement going in on inside of me is indescribable.

I am now 33% cock.

I reach around and claw at Fiona’s rump, trying to get a chance to stick my fist in the greatest woman of all time.

Then, it happened.

Shrek and Donkeys foreskin meet together in my tummy.

Their tips lightly kiss one another, right before spewing a stew of cum inflating my stomach like a water balloon.

Seconds later, I spunk into Fiona’s pussy.

My eyes roll back in my head.

I am breathing furiously yet only through one nostril.

It isn’t ogre yet.

I release a lengthy stream of semen as I never have before.

Donkey and Shrek still seem to be filling me with their love like a hose of sperm.

I am pumping an inhuman amount of jizz into Fiona, when I realize that it must be Shrek and Donkey whose cum is helping to give me extra virility.

Puss’s saw like wang is finally running out of mucus to drill out of my nose and it begins shaving off my nose hairs.

My nose bleeds a thick pink blood-semen cocktail courtesy of Puss in Boots.

After about a minute, Shrek and Donkey’s ogresm is complete.

Seconds later mine is done too.

I am more satisfied and exhausted than I have been in my entire life.

But it still isn’t ogre.

I look deeply and lovingly into Fiona’s green eyes as Puss and Donkey retreat from my orifices.

She spills forth from her mouth a cascade of all our juices.

It drenches my face and I squint to see Fiona, Donkey, and Puss all looking down on me with adoration.

Between gulps, I gargle “Shrek is love. Shrek is life.”

I fall gently to sleep with Shrek’s penis still moving inside of me and mine still inside Fiona.

I wake up the next morning in my mothers bed to the smell of onions and waffles.

I am alone except for the unrecognizable corpse on the floor.

Shrek and the others must have licked the cum all off because all that is left was blood and a floury substance on my hand.

I go to the kitchen to find a plate of onion waffles waiting for me.

Finally I have a family who cares for me.

After eating the feast my lovers left me, I went to my room to tell the other brogres online about my Shreksperience.

I find a note on the door.

“I was thinking about your party, and I decided that you can have a Far Far Away party after all. It is your big day and it is up to you to decide how to spend it. I will bake you your onion cake and make brownies for everyone else. Even though you have grown up into a wonderful Prince Charming, you will always be my special little boy. Love Mommy.”

Prince Charming?

PRINCE CHARMING?

That bitch deserved to die.

Shits Dark - DP

Drabble request: Shits dark. 

Leda totally sent it as “He’s a ghost. He’s half dead. Shits dark. Deal with it.”  Buuuuuttt… she forgot a VERY important apostrophe in there and now it reads as ‘He shits dark’.  So that left me no choice.

Also, this one got away from me again.  Boo on the 500 word goal.

.

When Danny went from human to half-human, he fully expected some changes to his normal routine.  Green eyes, floating, falling through desks – those sorts of things he could take in stride.  Sam and Tucker were able to laugh with him about those sorts of things.  They were funny problems, in a morbid, break-the-laws-of-known-physics sort of way.

Then there were the things he wasn’t expecting.  The things he wouldn’t tell Tucker, much less Sam.  Things nobody mentioned in the super-embarrassing puberty classes they had been forced to sit through several times. Like the fact that this one ghost looked exceptionally cute, despite being dead, and he shouldn’t be attracted to dead girls.  Like the fact that his sweat set off a Geiger counter in his parents’ lab yesterday. Like finding out his spit glows in the dark when the movie theater straw glowed after he had sucked on it.

And like the fact that trips to the bathroom were interesting, to say the least.

SKIN BRUSHING FOR CELLULITE AND DETOX
External image

Did You Know? The skin is the largest most important eliminative organ in the body and is responsible for one quarter of the body’s detoxification each day.

  • The skin eliminates over one pound of waste acids each day in the average adult, most of it through the sweat glands
  • The skin is known also as our third kidney
  • The skin receives one third of all the blood circulated in the body
  • The skin is the last to receive nutrients in the body, yet the first to show signs of imbalance or deficiency

Detoxification is performed by a number of organs, glands, and transportation systems, including the skin, gut, kidneys, liver, lungs, lymphatic system, and mucous membranes. Dry brushing is a way to stimulate all the above organs of detoxification because it provides a gentle internal massage.

Dry Brushing was recommended by the Finnish Dr. Paavo Airola for his patients 30 years ago and is still popular in European spas and many cancer treatment centers today.  Dry brushing is promoted as a preventative for dry skin and a way to exfoliate the skin, thIs stimulating skin renewal that is super soft to the touch, but there are many other benefits as well:

1. Dry brushing removes cellulite – Cellulite is a non-scientific term defined as toxic deposits of subcutaneous fat material and fibrous tissue that are not able to be eliminated and which cause a dimpling effect on the overlying skin. These deposits most commonly occur on the thighs and hips of women.  But also on men. What causes the toxins? Well, some think that we store the breakdown product of cells as toxins in this subcutaneous tissue. Others think that toxic emotions can be stored in the subcutaneous tissue which then builds up as cellulite.


External image

  •  Your best bets for getting rid of cellulite are dry brushing, massage, working though the emotional issues that are causing the toxins to stagnate, eating foods that feed the skin, an alkaline diet program and a consistent/persistent exercise routine. These techniques will break down the unwelcome toxic body deposits and send them scurrying out your body through the elimination channels we discussed above. And your health will be SO much better for it!
  • Foods that feed the skin include: green vegetable juice, fruits (esp. berries), eggs, fresh dark green leafy vegetables, water rich vegetables like tomatoes & cucumbers, and plenty of purified water

2. Dry brushing cleans the lymphatic system.  The Lymph System is considered part of our immune system and is made of white blood cells called lymphocytes and the interstitial fluid that bathe our cells, bringing our cells nutrients and removing their waste. All detoxification occurs first and foremost through the lymph. Our bodies contain far more lymph than blood, so you can see how important this might be. Paavo Airola maintains that dry brushing is an essential part of any intestinal cleansing and healing program.

  • Dry brushing literally moves the lymph containing large proteins and particulate matter that cannot be transported in any other way back into circulatory system. If these proteins stayed in our systems outside the blood vessels, it would attract other fluid. This can result in swollen ankles, limbs, skin issues and cellulite.

3. Dry brushing removes dead skin layers.  Dry skin brushing helps shed dead skin cells, which can help improve skin texture and cell renewal. Dry skin is a sign of detoxification. Therefore it’s good to keep the process going by removing the dead skin daily. 

4. Dry brushing strengthens the immune system. Dry skin brushing may reduce duration of infection and accelerate the clearing of toxins. It helps support the immune system during cancer and other chronic illness treatment. By stimulating the lymph vessels to drain toxic mucoid matter into organs of detoxification we can purify the entire system. After several days of dry brushing, sometimes you may notice a gelatinous mucoid material in your stools. This is a normal sign that the intestinal tract is renewing itself.

5. Dry Brushing tightens the skin by increasing the flow of blood which, in turn moves toxins and lessens the appearance of cellulite. Our bodies make a new top layer of skin every 24 hours – skin brushing removes the old top layer, allowing the clean new layer to come to the surface, resulting in softer, smoother skin.

6. Dry Brushing tones the muscles. Dry skin brushing helps muscle tone by stimulating the nerve endings which causes the individual muscle fibers to activate and move. It also helps mobilize fat and helps to even distribution of fat deposits. This is a great technique for invalids who can’t exercise.

7. Dry brushing stimulates circulation.  Our skin breathes! Dry skin brushing increases circulation to skin, encouraging your body’s discharge of metabolic wastes. Increased blood flow begins entering the areas brushed and you will experience an increase in electromagnetic energy that permits you to feel energized and invigorated. By activating the circulation you can also prevent varicose veins.

What You Need To Dry Brush the Skin:

To dry brush, use a soft natural fiber brush with a long handle, so that you are able to reach all areas of your body. One with a removable head with a strap for your hand is a good choice. Here’s a picture of what you are looking for:


External image

Dry Brushes are available online and at your local health food store. Instructions:

Remove your clothes, then take the brush off its handle for easier mobility. Starting with the soles of the feet, begin dry brushing the body using long upward strokes. Brush from the ankles to the calves, concentrating on the area behind the knees, thighs and buttocks to help mobilize fat stores (great for cellulite). Then brush the torso with upward strokes towards the heart. Finally, make long strokes from the wrists to the shoulders and underarms. This should take no more than 5 minutes and will leave you feeling totally invigorated! The best times to brush are in the morning before exercising or showering or before retiring for bed at night.

Essential Oils Masterpost (part 2)

This is part one in my series of essential oils. Here’s a list of essential oil recipes created by me that I’ve been keeping a record of over my herbalism studies. They’ve all been tried and tested and have worked great for me, friends or family.

If no amount of carrier oil is mentioned, it’s per 1 fluid ounce of carrier oil. If you have any questions or requests, please don’t hesitate to message me.

To see essential oil tips and advice in part one, click here.


Beauty

After shave lotion for face: Whip 4 tablespoons shea butter, 2 teaspoons vitamin e oil, 10 drops Roman chamomile, 2 drops rose absolute. An alternative to oils is rose and chamomile water splashed onto the face. It’s so gentle and smells amazing.

After shave lotion for body: Whip 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1 teaspoon vitamin e oil, 2 drops tea tree oil, 3 drops lime.

After Sun: 1 cup distilled water (you can also substitute part rose water), 3 tablespoons aloe vera gel, 15 drops lavender oil, 10 drops peppermint oil. Dispense into spray bottle and spray onto sunburnt skin to relieve.

Bloodshot eyes: Use a diffuser to diffuse lavender oil. The apply a mixture of 1 teaspoon olive oil, 1 drop basil oil sand 2 drops lavender oil with a cold compress to the area around your eyes (don’t go past the socket bone). Never apply to eyelids or eyes.

Broken capillaries: 3 drops Roman chamomile oil in 2 teaspoons vitamin e. Massage onto broken capillaries twice a day to reduce the appearance and help heal. Can also help with the appearance and pain of thread veins.

Deodorant: 3 tablespoons coconut oil (solid), 2 tablespoons starch or cornflour, 2 tablespoons baking soda, 8 drops tea tree oil, 5 drops lime, 4 drops grapefruit oil. You can add vitamin e if you shave or have sensitive underarms. Keep in jar and massage onto armpits, under breasts, lower back, thighs and other problem areas. You don’t need a lot, so be frugal.

Fungal nail: 1 teaspoon coconut oil or olive oil, 3 drops peppermint oil. Massage onto *clean* nails 3 times a day. After the infection appears to be gone, be sure to continue treatment for 3 more days to ensure it’s really gone.

Greasy scalp remedy: Add up to 20 total drops of any combination of these oils to ½ cup of your shampoo and/or conditioner: Lemon, lemongrass, lavender, peppermint, cypress, cedarwood, ylang-ylang.

Greasy skin remedy: 2 teaspoons salt, 2-3 drops tea tree oil, 2 teaspoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon honey. Mix together and massage onto greasy skin and leave for 3-5 minutes. Rinse with warm water, then splash skin with very cold water.

Make up cleaner: 2 drops of lavender, 4 tablespoons vodka, 2 tablespoons distilled water in a spray bottle. Spray onto make up and allow to dry. You can also soak brushes, mascara wands, and pencils in this solution. Do this twice a month and after sharing make up to keep it clean and avoid breakouts.

Make up remover: anti-bacterial: 2 drops tea tree oil in 2 tablespoons olive oil. Use cotton ball dipped in solution to gently remove make up and clean your skin to avoid spots and moisturise.

Shaving balm: whip 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 2 drops tea tree oil, 2 drops lemon oil. You can add vitamin e if you wish. Use as normal. Skin will be smooth and silky and you’ll get reduced ingrown hairs. (For body or non-acne prone skin only)

Super shiny hair: 3 drops peppermint, 2 drops rosemary in 250ml distilled water. Spray onto wet hair to add shine and freshness.

Toner: 1-2 drops rose absolute, 1 cup jasmine tea. Use the tea bag or a cotton ball to apply to skin. Will last up to 2 days, but works best fresh.

Toothpaste: ½ tablespoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 drop peppermint oil, 1 drop tea tree oil. Mix well and brush as usual.

Tooth whitening, bad breath killer: 4 per cent hydrogen peroxide, coconut oil, peppermint oil. For whitening effects swill in mouth for 2 minutes 3 times daily. Whitening results will be visible after just a week, but for best effects, continue for at least 8 weeks. For just bad breath, swill 2 minutes morning and night. You will notice your breath stays fresher for longer.

Home and Lifestyle

Bug repellent spray: 2 drops lavender, 1 drop eucalyptus in 250ml water. Spray onto skin and mosquitoes and other creepy crawlies will leave you alone.

Flea Killer, suitable for pets: Put 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 4 cups water, 3 drops lavender, teaspoon lemon juice in a spray bottle and shake well to combine. Mist onto your pet twice daily, avoiding face and eyes. Spritz onto their bedding too. You can also use this mixture as a repellent twice a week to prevent flea infections. These ingredients are safe on most cats and dogs, but please check for safety on your pet and assure they aren’t allergic to ingredients before use.
If you’re able, give your pet a salt water bath or let them swim in the sea to dehydrate and kill the fleas naturally.
For furniture and carpet infestations, sprinkle salt liberally over surfaces. Leave 24-48 hours then vacuum. The fleas should all be dead, but repeat again to catch newly hatched fleas.

Mirror and shiny surface polish: put a few drops of lemon essential oil onto a micro-cloth ((x)) or duster. Rub onto mirrors to make them extra shiny and clean.

Sleep aid: Put any combination of the following oils into a diffuser, or drop onto plain candle: jasmine, lavender, Roman chamomile, ylang-ylang.

Stress and anxiety relief: To a mixture of 1:1 salt and baking soda, add one or a combination pf the following oils: basil, rosemary, lemon, peppermint, lavender, grapefruit. I really like basil and lemon, or lavender and lemon, or just peppermint to calm me down when I have a panic attack.

Surface cleanser: 5 drops grapefruit, 5 drops lemon, 100 ml strong vodka or rubbing alcohol, 20-50ml distilled water. Spray onto counters, chopping boards, clothes, sofas and other surfaces to disinfect and cleanse. This is a great spray to use on dry clean only clothes, or to freshen up dirty clothes that you need to wear with no time to wash. It disinfects, busts bad odours and once the vodka  evaporates, you’re left with a gorgeous citrus smell.

Wood polish: 8 drops of lemon oil per 4 tablespoons of olive oil. Rub gently into wood to clean, restore shine and treat.

Pain

Cooling body mist: 8 drops peppermint oil in distilled water. Spray onto body to cool down. It’s best to spray on points where blood comes close to the skin, this means: neck, wrists, inner thighs, back of knees, feet, ankles, and anywhere else you can see veins.

Joint pain and rheumatism rub: 10 drops chamomile, 2 black pepper. Massage into painful areas. Direct flow of massage to lymph nodes.
Headache rub, helps sleep: 8 drops lavender, 4 drops roman chamomile OR 4 drops spearmint, 8 drops lavender. Massage into forehead and temples before sleep. Try not use mint on face as it can hurt your eyes.

Headache rub, invigorating: 4 drops peppermint, 4 drops eucalyptus. Massage into temples and chest. Try not use mint on face as it can hurt your eyes.

Period pain relief: 5 drops peppermint, 4 drops lavender OR 4 drops cinnamon, 2 nutmeg, 4 sweet orange oil. Gently massage into abdomen and lower back.

Relaxing, joint pain rub: 4 drops cinnamon + 3 drops sweet orange oil. Gently massage into joints and direct to lymph nodes (see chart in part 1)

Ilness and Bodily Issues

Acid reflux/heartburn: Mix 1 drop grapefruit oil (medical grade) with teaspoon of baking soda or Andrew’s salts. Stir into water and drink quickly. Instant relief.

Acne: Dilute apple cider vinegar to 50 per cent with water. Add a few drops of lavender/tea tree or basil oil. Use a cotton ball to sweep over affected areas. Be careful around eyes if treating face. Do this morning and night daily.

Athletes foot spray: 10 drops peppermint, 7 drops lime with vodka or 2 per cent hydrogen peroxide. Spray onto feet and extra generously where the infection is 2-3 times a day. It will kill the infection in a few days

Constipation relief: (note: this is for gentle constipation relief. For serious blockages, contact your GP) Drink hot water with 1 drop ginger oil, 1 drop fennel oil and 2 teaspoons of honey. Follow this with a gentle but thorough abdomen massage of 4 drops peppermint, 3 drops black pepper. Massage clockwise with pressure on the downward stroke and light carressing on the upward. Repeat as required.

Dandruff: 10 drops of lavender or tea tree oil in carrier oil (I recommend coconut oil because of its antibacterial properties). Massage into scalp, put on shower cap and leave overnight. Do this treatment once weekly to keep dandruff at bay.

Eczema relief: (for alternative treatment see ‘inflamed rash’) 5 drops jasmine oil, 5 drops Roman chamomile with vitamin E oil and shea butter/cocoa butter/liquid paraffin. Generously massage into affected areas and leave overnight. Continue with normal eczema treatment alongside this.

Food poisoning: Oregano oil supplement and drink lots of fluids. Ginger ale can help with nausea, as can smelling peppermint oil.

Head lice: Be sure to follow decontamination procedures to prevent reinfection. Mix 5 drops tea tree oil, 5 drops lavender to 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Massage into scalp and through to tips. Put on shower cap and leave on overnight. You can make a simple preventative spray from 2 drops tea tree, 2 drops eucalyptus and 100ml water in a spray bottle. Spritz onto clean hair daily to prevent lice.

Irritable bowel syndrome relief: Take peppermint oil orally. You can get pills for this online or make them yourself with gelatine casings and a carrier oil such as suflower oil. Peppermint oil is antimicrobial and can help kill the bacteria that worsens IBS. It also relaxes the muscles of the gastro-intestinal tract to help soothe pain caused by spasms.

Indigestion and gas: Mix 7 drops of Roman chamomile oil and 3 drops of cinnamon oil to 2 tablespoons of carrier oil. Massage into abdomen, relax and inhale the aroma.

Inflamed rash: (lupus, psoriasis, allergy) mix 1 or 2 drops of lavender oil to 1 tsp coconut oil (jojoba or olive if using on acne prone area) and ½ tsp of vitamin e oil. Massage onto rash after warm shower. Note: I use this for my auto immune rash and it clears it completely within a week. (Click here to see the pictures.)

Sore throat: Mix 1 drop Eucalyptus, 2 drop Cinnamon, 1 drop Lemon, 1 drop Clove in 1 fl oz. water or 50:50 mix of vodka and water. Put in glass spray bottle and spray 1-3 times at back of throat. Use as needed.

Tooth ache: 1 tablespoon of coconut oil mixed thoroughly with 2 drops of peppermint oil, 1 drop of clove oil. Swill gently in mouth for 10-20 minutes. Spit into trash, not drain. Rinse with warm water and repeat as needed.

Urinary tract infection: This works amazingly, make some now so you have it ready for your next uti and you’ll thank yourself later. ¼ cup baking soda, 1 teaspoon vitamin c or citric acid, 1 drop lemon, 1 drop orange, 1 drop lime, (Note: All oils must be medical grade to be ingested), non-sugar sweetener for taste. Mix ½ to 1 teaspoon with glass of water and drink every 3 hours until you feel relief.

Vaginal/anal/penile thrush: Soak the perianal area in this solution. Fill a basin with 3 cups of warm water, 1 cup near boiling water with one of the following recipes: 3 drops rosemary, 3 drops lavender, 3 drops tea tree OR 3 drops Lemongrass, 2 drops clove

Vaginal thrush treatment: mix a tablespoon of live yoghurt with 3 drops of tea tree oil or lemongrass oil. Insert into vagina using clean fingers or a tampon applicator. Leave overnight, rinse in the morning and repeat until infection is cleared.

Allspice

Gender: Masculine

Planet: Mars

Element: Fire

Spiritual Attributes: Money, luck, healing, obtaining treasure. Provides added determination and energy to any spells and charms. Burn crushed allspice to attract luck and money. Use in herbal baths for healing. Use to honor very virile and powerful male archetypes.

Medical Uses: Antiseptic properties aid in fighting chest infections and helps muscle pain. Aromatically the oil is burned to treat stress & mild depression. Can be used in a paste to soothe toothache and a mouthwash to freshen breath. It stimulates the gastro-intestinal tract, so it can be used in teas to encourage the appetite or aid in digestion. Can also be added to tonics and purgatives.

The last thing Splinter remembered about that final encounter was a single fateful instance of letting his guard down. Then there was the horrible tearing impact with his torso and the sensation of falling.
However, despite having been impaled and thrown from a rooftop Splinter… by some miracle… survived.

His sons’ desperate measures to put a stop to the bleeding were what ultimately saved him, their efforts a muddle of healing mantras and surgeries. Donatello removed the damaged internal organs (a kidney and some intestinal tract in particular) but unfortunately little could be done about the spinal injuries.

A month after the incident Splinter awoke to find himself paralyzed from the neck down save for the ability to move his fingers slightly. In time he regained more sensation in his arms and, after a good deal of physical therapy, was able to regain control of his upper body.
His legs, however, were a whole different matter. Wheelchair bound for nearly a year he eventually succeeded in standing with assistance. Walking, however, was a nearly impossible struggle, and he can’t stay on his feet for much longer than half an hour without his legs giving out from under him.

“it doesn’t matter when it’s chronic”

i can’t scream any louder or write any faster

and i’ll have to come to terms with that

i can’t dream any bigger or hope any stronger

and i’ll have to come to terms with that


i am who i am, a little mountain of advils in your palms, ready to shower down through your intestinal tract, ready to come with peace, children stuck in caves and capes, but i’m just talking to myself

this entire time, just talking at myself

i found a home away from home as i collapsed into a puddle on the tiled floor, and i took a little mountain of aspirins and it didn’t work, the pill bottle shook its head with sadness and said “it doesn’t matter when it’s chronic”

this cacophony and dismal silence and entropy is eternal and terminal, and the doctors can’t help they’re suffering too, and i’m here weeping through the wall our only morse code left for us nowadays


i can’t scream any louder or write any faster

and that’s okay

i can’t dream any bigger or hope any stronger

and that’s okay

My Apologies.


I’m sorry. 

That is all. I want to apologize because I know this website has not been what it usually is this year. I have not written any educational articles and have basically used this space to ignore for lengthy periods of time and then come back to complain about my health. 

Ever since coming off TPN in fall of 2014 my health has been declining. It is a big reason why I stopped making YouTube videos for the most part these past 3 years and have just hid behind my computer screen and written when I was able. My illness (Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction) has been getting worse and worse and I have been home bound and bed ridden more than I’d ever want to admit. I am back on TPN again but still have a long way to go in order to improve (if that’s even possible since CIPO usually is progressive). Since CIPO is rare, many people don’t realize how serious and debilitating it is. It’s so debilitating that it’s on the Compassionate Care Allowances List. I just did not know how to talk about a lot of these things over the years so I didn’t talk about them much at all and just focused on writing informational articles about IBD here even though my Crohn’s disease affects me way less than CIPO does. I just didn’t know how to talk about my CIPO and didn’t think anyone would be interested anyway. There is so much more to my life than what I choose to show on the internet. 


I do plan to make a video to explain everything at some point. For now I just want to apologize that my website hasn’t been very good this year. I do want to get back into writing more informative stuff for you all soon. I’ve been in the hospital in February, April, and May so I haven’t really had the chance. 

anonymous asked:

What if the companions started there own YouTube channels(if it was possible in the commonwealth)what would they do and maybe have ss be in there vids from time to time

Cait: Probably a gaming channel or something on twitch that has Sole appear a lot, they get really competitive, ends up lasting about an hour and a half with them play fighting. That or something on fighting/ hand to hand combat, at a stretch maybe stuff about drug use.

Codsworth: Most likely a “how to” channel, with helpful hints/ tips and tricks for around the home and life in general

Curie: The possibilities are endless :3. Curie would probably do something about science, history or about being a good person/ helping others. She’d probably do vlogs on the side, with Sole and talk about their adventures together out in the commonwealth.

Danse: Fitness channel, sometimes he’ll have Sole help/demonstrate and accidentally do  some nsfw on camera, he leaves it in the video :3. Or something to do with guns and weapons, sometimes has Cait on for hand to hand stuff

Deacon: Make-up/costume/disguise channel so everyone can be as awesome as he is. Or a conspiracy channel exposing the truth. Or… with those suave lines a how to date/ meet people.

Hancock: Gets baked with Sole and does a weekly podcast watching stupid shit and laughing so hard he falls and knocks the camera down with him. Also maybe, like Curie, a vlog with Sole about their crazy adventures

MacCready: Mac would most likely do reviews and critique stuff, or maybe a talk show/podcasdt where he, Sole and some of the other companions get absolutely shitfaced drunk together.

Nick: History buff, but does it in such an elegant and dignified way. A dark lit room with Nick in a grand arm chair, one leg resting on the other with a lit cigarette smouldering in a tray, Nick with a drink of whiskey or something in his hand as he sits back and tells the stories of the pre war Nick before his memories were implanted in Synth Nick

Piper: Probably something political, more trying to expose the truth than taking a particular side, most likely just commentary. Likely she’d run a self help channel too sometimes featuring Blue, almost like an agony aunt with people sending in problems they’d like Blue and Piper’s help on

Preston: Like Piper, probably does a self help thing, except uses his own life and experiences to show how a person can be so low but come back strong like he has done

Strong: Cooking channel. Imagine strong in an apron and chefs hat cooking with Sole, I mean it would usually be if not all the time end up being meat bags, but it’d be hilarious to see strong taking on others opinions going “Hmm Strong thinks more intestinal tract is needed for perfect flavour”

X6-88: Like Mac would probably do a review channel about stuff in the commonwealth, often saying that everything about the Institute is far superior, seen as kind of a nutjob :3, doesn’t get many subscribers

(Bonus)

Maxson: Shaky webcam rants about how great the Brotherhood is, does it with a massive BOS flag on the wall behind him and talks about how Synths and Super Mutants are scum that should be destroyed. Has a handful of subscribers, makes Danse share all his videos

Sorry this one took a while to get to anon, as always I hope you enjoy guys! :D

Day 1 in the hospital. Room tour, Port placement, Back on TPN, + More!

Here’s a video we recorded on the first day I was admitted at the University of Chicago 2 weeks ago. I was admitted because of the rare disease that I have called, Chronic Intestinal Pseudo Obstruction which has caused intestinal failure in me. I seem happy in this video but in truth the situation is very serious and things have not been going well. 

I have a lot to update you on at some point. 

Aromatherapy Tip of the Week

The natural oil extracted from the petals of rose is supposed to be amongst the priciest essential oils available. Rose essential oil possesses numerous therapeutic properties that help in boosting one’s physical and mental conditions. In addition, rose essential oil is known to be very coactive in blending with other natural oils. The aroma of rose essential oil is extremely long-lasting, so much so that even using a few drops of this oil will ensure that your small bottle lasts long.
