HAIR DRYER TREATMENT.





The Amazing Hair Dryer (by Z. D. Zhou) 

Not long ago a friend took her ten-year-old boy to my house looking for my wife, saying that her child had hiccups all day long. The child was very uncomfortable and unable to eat at all. After she checked, my wife said there was a muscle spasm in his diaphragm. Without hesitation, she took out a blow dryer, turned on the power and started blowing at the boy's stomach.

About 10 minutes later, the boy burped and fell relieved. We were surprised that this thing can do the trick. But my wife just smiled.

A few days later, I had a stiff neck when I woke up in the morning. I could hardly turn my head. I recalled my stiff neck problem was treated a few times by acupuncture and cupping when I was younger. I asked my wife for the similar treatment. She said there weren't any needles at home nor any suitable small jars for cupping. She just took out a hair dryer. I couldn't help laughing. Again? This thing can cure stiff neck too? Amazing!

She blew on my shoulders and my neck for about 15 minutes. My neck was really loosened up. I could turn my head now. Later in the evening, she repeated that on me once more. The pain in my neck was significantly reduced. I crowned her the "queen of blow drying".

She explained that this was inspired by the method people used in the old days. In hospitals, with all the modern equipments we have, doctors do not need blow dryers. Back in the old days, in rural villages especially, doctors were poorly equipped with medical supplies. So they came up withother means to treat patients with common pains.

Suddenly I realized this is the thermal effect on pains with the heat generated by a blow dryer. Modern physiotherapy equipment such as electric, laser, thermal, ultrasound and others can easily generate heat for effective treatment. They are, of course, more powerful then a blow dryer.

However, when they are not available, using a blow dryer to generate heat will also work, temporarily at least, on common pains such as back pain, muscle spasm, stiff neck, leg cramps, etc. It is easily accessible and easy to operate as long as there is electricity.

The blow dryer is really amazing. Try it. Hope it works for you too.

FANTASTIC VOICE - MUST SEE THIS VIDEO (Homeless Boy Steals The Talent Show)


One cannot help but be moved to tears by this amazing young man; Sung-bong Choi.

When Sung-bong decided to sing on the Talent Show “Korea’s Got Talent” he had no idea that he would win the hearts of millions all over the world!

His story of his childhood is so moving that even the judges had a hard time keeping their composure.

I’m going to warn you now: The following video will make you cry. On the first episode of Korea’s Got Talent, we’re introduced to 22-year-old Sung-Bong Choi. He tells his story (and we assume for now that it’s legit) about being in an orphanage until he was five, which he then fled after being beaten there.

He has lived alone ever since, selling drinks on the streets for ten years and sleeping in stairs or public toilets. Choi says that the first school that he attended is high school. And while it doesn’t say so in the video, that school is reportedly an art/performance high school.

Nevertheless, the story is a moving one. Korea’s Got Talent’s original video clip has racked up over 170,000 views, and unless this turns out to be a massive fraud those numbers should continue to climb. Check out the subtitled version of the video below. You’ll hear Choi explain all about his difficult childhood, and then have a listen to him sing.

I recommend that you grab a few tissues first.

Whitney - I will always love you OUT OF TUNE!!!!


Lost her touch: Looking bloated and out of shape, Whitney Houston left fans disappointed on the London leg of her comeback world tour last night


Bloated, bedraggled and out of tune: Whitney Houston disappoints London on the latest leg of her troubled world tour

Much like her most popular song, her adoring fans have always loved Whitney Houston.

But that could be changing after the singer's comeback world tour went from bad to worse on the latest leg of the tour in London's O2 arena last night.

The 46-year-old's first concert in the capital since 1999 was memorable - but unfortunately for the 20,000 fans, for all the wrong reasons.

Houston admitted to the crowd that she couldn't hit the high notes and even abandoned The Greatest Love Of All after only a couple of verses.

Houston had been greeted by wild cheering as she walked out on stage as fans gave her the benefit of the doubt despite her disastrous concert in Birmingham last month.

She had been criticised for her performance but blamed croaky vocals on a respiratory infection and suffered a series of technical glitches.

It had been a similar situation during the Australian leg of her Nothing But Love world tour in February when she came under fire for fluffing her lines.


Strain: Whitney used all her lung power as she struggled to hit the high notes she was once so famous for

But last night, once again the voice that had left her contemporaries reeling in its wake, was a former shadow of what it used to be.

WHITNEY HOUSTON
I Will Always Love You: But fans were left disappointed with the singer's appearance and lack of vocal range


After stumbling half-heartedly through her signature song I Will Always Love You, Houston, who has suffered her fair share of drug problems in the past, said: 'She don't want to come, my soprano friend.'

She added: 'Sometimes the old girl sings, but not tonight. I want to do it, but she doesn't want to. ... She's getting a little ... temperamental, even.'




Diva: But Whitney found it hard to hit the high notes she was once so famous for

She struggled further with another of her classic songs, this time cutting short Greatest Love Of All, only managing to pull of a couple of verses.

And during much of the set she paused and panted for breath between songs while her backing singers did a great job of carrying her with their melodies.

Her outfit also left a bit to be desired. She came on stage in tight leather trousers, a sequinned jacket that struggled to fasten at her middle and a bloated face.

Whitney did manage to stay on stage for the majority of the two-hour gig, her first of three at the Docklands venue.

But fans were still unhappy, with some even demanding their money back.

Speaking to USA Today after the gig, fan Mark Higgins said it was 'rubbish' and added: 'She can't even complete a song.'

He said his daughter had given the tickets to him and his wife for Christmas but he was going to demand his money back.

Dave Law from Plymouth said: 'I remember her 20 years ago. She's not a patch on what she was.'


Thank you and goodnight: Whitney bids last night's crowd a farewell but hundreds of them had already walked out

Home Exercise Can Be Dangerous Be Careful And 5 Exercises You Should Never Do.


Watch This Video...Home exercise can be dangerous be careful.


5 Exercises You Should Never Do
Do You Avoid These Danger Zones?

Most people believe that all exercises are good, safe and effective. After all, it's all exercise, and that has to count for something, doesn't it?

The truth is that some of the machines in gyms aren't safe at all (especially for people who have common muscle, joint, and health problems). Certain exercises require a bit more know-how than the average person possesses. And other exercises are downright wastes of your time.

But before we examine some of the most controversial exercises, I want to make it clear that every exercise on this list isn't always unsafe or ineffective for everyone. What you should do—or avoid—depends on your goals, fitness level, health history, workout schedule, and other personal issues. An article like this can't replace your own efforts to identify your goals and needs. That requires you to do some research on your own, talk to your medical professional about any pain or physical limitations you have, and learn how to exercise with proper form and technique.

So what makes an exercise risky? Here are a few red flags to look out for:
  • Any unusual or “unnatural” movement pattern in the exercise
  • Any movement that causes pain or discomfort in any way
  • Any movement that enhances muscular imbalances that are already present
  • Any movement that requires joint flexibility that is above and beyond your range of motion
  • Any exercise with risks of injury that outweigh the potential benefit of the exercise itself
That said, the following exercises pose high risks and are generally considered contraindicated (if not controversial) by reputable fitness organizations and experts.

Think Twice Before Trying These 5 Moves
1. Behind-the-Head Lat Pulldowns
In the “old days,” people were actually taught to pull the bar behind their heads when doing a lat pulldown exercise—and many people still do that today. Bad idea. The problem? Only people with extremely flexible shoulder joints can do this behind-the-head movement safely, and even they have to be very careful about not hitting the back of their necks with the bar. In addition, almost anyone who spends their days deskbound is likely to have rounded shoulders or poor posture—a symptom of poor shoulder flexibility (among other things), making this exercise a no-no.

The Alternative: You can still work your lats without the risk of behind-the-head pulldowns by pulling the bar down in front of you. Sit with your spine straight, abs pulled in, and then lean your torso back slightly, keeping your spine straight. Pull the bar down towards your chest, but not below your collar bone.

2. Squats or Leg Presses with Deep Knee Bends
Whether you’re doing basic squats on your own or using a leg press machine, it can be very dangerous to bend your knees too deeply. The Problem? When your knees bend too deeply, your spine cannot maintain proper alignment. When that happens, the pelvis tilts and the lower back begins to take over, increasing the risk of strain to your lower back muscles or damage to spinal discs. In addition, bending your knees too deeply can injure or damage your knees, especially if you have knee problems.

The Alternatives: Squats and leg presses are generally safe and effective when done properly. But you should never bend your knees or hips more than 90 degrees during these exercises. Here's an example of proper form when doing a leg press machine, but this can apply to squats with a barbell, and the sled machine, too.

3. Seated Leg Extensions
This is a very popular exercise for targeting the muscles on the front of your thighs (quadriceps). The Problem? This exercise poses major risks to the knees. Lifting heavy weights in this position (with all the resistance focused at your ankles), is not what the knee was designed to do. If you have any kind of knee problem, or use a too much resistance during this exercise, you can easily run into big trouble.

The Alternatives: Simple squats and lunges, with or without added weight, will work your thigh muscles naturally, safely and effectively. If you want to expand on these exercises (to develop explosive force for sports like soccer, basketball, or volleyball, for example), try sport-specific plyometrics. If you can’t do lunges and squats because you lack the leg strength, start with simple ball squats or modified "mini" lunges, and only lower yourself part way, gradually increasing your range of motion as you get stronger.

4. Inner and Outer Thigh Machine Exercises
These machines are pretty popular in most gyms. Both involve sitting with your knees bent in front of you. The adduction machine is designed to target the muscles of the inner thighs, and the abduction machine helps target the outer thigh muscles. The Problem? Using your inner and outer thighs to lift weight while in a seated position puts you at risk of straining these relatively small muscles and aggravating lower back and hip problems. In addition, your inner and outer thigh muscles are designed to support movement, not to be prime movers like they are in these types of exercises.

The Alternatives: The best way to target these muscles safely is with body weight exercises, such as standing adduction, standing abduction, lying adduction and abduction exercises, Pilates exercises, or similar movements that use resistance bands or the cable cross machines. Always start with a weight you know you can handle, and add resistance gradually.

5. Upright Rows
In this exercise, you stand holding a barbell or weight in the center, with hands close together, and bring your hands up under your chin. The Problem? Upright rows are controversial because the movement can compress the nerves in the shoulder area, impinging the shoulder.

The Alternatives: Instead of standing to perform an upright row, try bent-over rows, bending forward 90 degrees at the hip, holding weight down beneath your shoulders with hands slightly more than shoulder width apart, then lift weight straight up towards your chest until elbows and shoulders form a straight line. You can also try front or lateral shoulder raises, using a modest weight, so that you don’t need to lean back or use momentum for assistance

10 Fashion Habits That Exacerbate Pain

Big bags
1. Some handbags really qualify as carry-on luggage or tote bags. Why do women need to tote around so much stuff?

Heavy bags
2. Put your purse on a diet. Some people carry brushes, makeup, notepads, mirrors, energy bars, water bottles, pacifiers, phones, and money (well, maybe just plastic). Have you weighed your purse lately?

Spouse asking you to carry things

3. For goodness sake, your purse is heavy enough without carrying everyone else's stuff too! If you read about the history of purses, you will find that men used to carry purses. How did women end up with the heavy load? The answer is fashion.

Small bags with skinny straps

4. Even the small ones with the really skinny straps might be digging you into a painful hole. Some women have indentation along their shoulders from straps

Purse strap on one shoulder

5. Even if a purse is well designed to fit comfortably over the shoulder, it could still be causing discomfort because the owner only wears her purse strap over one particular shoulder. We are all creatures of habit. Sometimes that repetition can lead to enough muscle and joint asymmetry to cause pain.

Using the same purse

6. Pain from purses can include neck pain, shoulder pain, thoracic outlet pain, arm pain and even hand pain. Variation can be a good thing. Different purse, different shoulder, no purse, fanny pack, and backpack are all various ways to break up a cycle of pain caused by a purse.

High heels

7. High-heeled shoes cause so many problems like bunions, knee and back pain. The misalignment caused by anything over a one-inched heel places stress on all the parts from toe to head.

Flip Flops

8. Without good support from shoes, the tires of our lives, you are greatly increasing your risk of injury to the feet, ankles, knees and low back.

Toning shoes

9. Well, the shoe companies fooled millions with claims that these shoes toned your legs and butt while you walk. Not only do these claims prove false, but the toning shoes actually cause painful injuries.

Bras

10. Bras in general can be painful for people with chronic pain. Some features that might be helpful include, a front-hook closure, a "vanishing back" which has no seams, hems or stitching and is made out of a soft, stretchy fabric, and underwire that doesn't poke.

Shrimps, Vitamin C And Arsenic Make For A Fishy Hoax..YOU MAY POISON YOURSELF ACCIDENTALLY

shrimp and vitamin c lead to arsenic hoax

Vitamin C : Good

Shrimp : Tasty

Eaten together : Death?

If you believe the following email forward, which has been in circulation for about 8 years incidentally, then you may be inclined to believe that mixing vitamin C with shrimp could be potentially fatal.

Whilst it certainly is possible that someone could react badly to certain foods (my dad is allergic to seafood, for instance) there have certainly been no reported cases of vitamin C and shrimp reacting in the stomach to create arsenic.

Taiwan, a woman suddenly died unexpectedly with signs of bleeding from her ears, nose, mouth & eyes. After a preliminary autopsy it was diagnosed death due to arsenic poisoning death. Where did the arsenic come from?

The police launched an in-depth and extensive investigation. A medical school professor was invited to come to solve the case.

The professor carefully looked at the contents from the deceased’s stomach, in less than half an hour, the mystery was solved. The professor said: ‘The deceased did not commit suicide and neither was she murdered, she died of accidental death due to ignorance!’

Everyone was puzzled, why accidental death? The arsenic is of the U.S.

military for carrying rice seedlings H Gao. The professor said: ‘The arsenic is produced in the stomach of the deceased.’ The deceased used to take ‘Vitamin C’ everyday, which in itself is not a problem. The problem was that she ate a large portion of shrimp/prawn during dinner. Eating shrimp/prawn is not the problem that’s why nothing happened to her family ever though they took the same shrimp/prawn.

However at the same time the deceased also took ‘vitamin C’, that is where the problem is!

Researchers at the University of Chicago in the United States , found through experiments, food such as soft-shell shrimp/prawn contains a much higher concentration of – five potassium arsenic compounds.

Such fresh food by itself has no toxic effects on the human body!

However, in taking ‘vitamin C’, due to the chemical reaction, the original non-toxic – five potassium arsenic (As anhydride, also known as arsenic oxide, the chemical formula for As205) changed to a three potassium toxic arsenic (ADB arsenic anhydride), also known as arsenic trioxide, a chemical formula (As203), which is commonly known as arsenic to the public!

Arsenic poisoning have magma role and can cause paralysis to the small blood vessels, “mercapto Jimei”??, inhibits the activity of the liver and fat necrosis change Hepatic Lobules Centre, heart, liver, kidney, intestine congestion, epithelial cell necrosis, telangiectasia.

Therefore, a person who dies of arsenic poisoning will shows signs of bleeding from the ears, nose, mouth & eyes.

Therefore; as a precautionary measure,

DO NOT not take shrimp/prawn when taking ‘vitamin C’.

After reading this; please do not be stingy.. Forward to your friends and family!!

As I’m sure you have now deduced, the email above is a hoax.

Many email hoaxes are written for fun, often containing grains of true or links to true stories.

Whilst forwarding them may seem like the right thing to do just remember that they clog up people’s inboxes and can, sometimes, lead to your email address being harvested for far more sinister purposes.

Girl Dies at School From Peanut Allergy (Peanut Allergy)


A 7-year-old Virginia girl died last week as a result of a severe allergic reaction to peanuts. Apparently, the girl had been given a peanut (or peanut-containing food) from another child while on the playground. The girl developed shortness of breath and hives and sought help, although apparently no treatment was given at the school. When emergency medical services arrived at the school, the girl was already in cardiac arrest. She was taken to a local hospital where she was declared dead.

This sad story will surely bring up the question of whether or not peanuts should be banned from school. There are other questions that arise -- such as the availability of medicines at school for children with medical problems -- such as injectable epinephrine. And, whether or not that medicine was prescribed by a physician for a specific child, or if that medicine is available for "general use". This could lead to multiple problems, especially since most schools don't have a nurse or other healthcare professional on staff, who would have the ability to recognize and treat a medical emergency. The most important take-home lesson from this tragedy is to ensure that if your child has a life-threatening medical condition, such as food allergies, to have anaction plan in place for school officials to follow should an emergency occur.

What is Peanut Allergy?

Peanut, scientific name Arachis hypogeal, is a legume that is a common cause of food allergies. Peanut allergy is known to potentially be very dangerous and even life-threatening, particularly in adolescents and young adults, as well as in people with asthma.

How Common is Peanut Allergy?

Peanut allergy is the most common form of food allergy in school age children and adults. Milk and egg allergy are more common in infants and toddlers, but allergies to these foods are commonly outgrown by school age. Recent studies show that in North America and the United Kingdom, 1% of children have peanut allergy.

It is possible for adults (who were not allergic as children) to develop a new allergy to peanut. In these cases, peanut allergy tends to be less severe, and is likely caused by the oral allergy syndrome as a result of birch allergy.

Peanut allergy is much less common in other parts of the world compared to Westernized countries. Despite peanut being a major food source in Asia, peanut allergy is uncommon. This is thought to be due to the common method of cooking peanuts in Asia, frying and boiling, which makes the food less allergenic. Dry roasting, the common method of cooking peanuts in the United States, has been shown to make peanuts more allergenic.

Why Is Peanut Allergy Becoming More Common?The occurrence of peanut allergy has doubled in the past 10 to 20 years, and the reason for this increase is not completely clear. Possibilities for this increase include topical exposure to peanut proteins in skin creams containing peanut oil, exposure to peanut proteins in breast milk or during pregnancy, as well as exposure to cross-reacting (similar) foods, such as soy. At the present time, it is not known why peanut allergy is becoming more common.

How is Peanut Allergy Diagnosed?Peanut allergy is diagnosed in much the same as other food allergies. When symptoms consistent with food allergies occur after eating peanut-containing foods, an allergist will perform allergy testing. A positive allergy test, along with a history of a person experiencing symptoms with eating peanuts, makes a diagnosis of peanut allergy.

How Often Does a Person Outgrow Peanut Allergy?Only about 20% of children will outgrow peanut allergy by the time they reach school age. For many people, peanut allergy may be a lifelong disease. Those people who outgrow their peanut allergy typically have milder reactions, smaller skin test reactions, and fewer allergies in general.

Physicians can predict resolution of peanut allergy with the use of RAST to peanut. A RAST level of less than 5 kU/L (kiliunits per liter) is suggestive of outgrowing peanut allergy, and that a person may pass an oral food challenge to peanut. Some people who have passed an oral food challenge to peanut have become re-allergic to peanuts if they don’t eat peanuts enough after they have outgrown peanut allergy. For this reason, a person who has outgrown peanut allergy should continue to have injectable epinephrine available for emergency use.

Is it Common to Accidentally Eat Peanuts?Because peanuts are such a common food in Westernized diets, accidental exposure to peanuts is common. Peanut-allergic people accidentally eat peanuts every 3-5 years, and a recent study of Canadian peanut-allergic children showed that nearly 15% accidentally ate peanuts over a one-year period of time.

What Other Foods Should Be Avoided?Peanuts belong to the legume family, which also includes beans, peas and soy. While it is common for a person allergic to peanut to have positive allergy tests to other legumes, allergic reactions from eating these other legumes occurs in only 5% of people.

Lupine is another legume commonly ground into flour and used for various baking purposes. Unlike other legumes, people with peanut allergy can frequently experience allergic reactions to lupine, and therefore this food should be avoided.

People with peanut allergy may also be allergic to treenuts, such as almonds, cashews, walnuts and pecans. In fact, a recent study showed that about 1 in every 3 people (33%) with peanut allergy is also allergic to at least one treenut. For this reason, as well as the fact that cross-contamination among treenuts and peanuts is common (for instance, where you find one, you tend to find the other), I typically recommend that people with peanut allergy avoid eating all nuts.

How is Peanut Allergy Treated?Currently, the best therapy for peanut allergy is to avoid eating peanuts. If peanuts are eaten and a reaction occurs, treatment of the acute reaction is much the same as for other food allergies. Various research studies are ongoing looking at ways to treat and potentially cure peanut allergy. While some of these studies show promising results, therapies at curing peanut allergy are probably years away from being routinely available.

The most popular study on peanut allergy treatment involved an injectable anti-allergic antibody similar toXolair (actually a slightly different drug). This medication, given by injection every 4 weeks, increased the amount of peanut that could be tolerated without a reaction in people with peanut allergy. The purpose of this study was to avoid severe, life-threatening reactions from accidentally eating peanuts, rather than for the purpose of people intentionally eating peanuts.

Other studies for treatment of peanut allergy includesublingual immunotherapy and injection immunotherapy using isolated and engineered peanut proteins. Traditional immunotherapy using peanut has been shown to be dangerous and not an effective treatment.

Transplant Team Drops Heart on Way to Hospital



MEXICO CITY -- Medics rushing a human heart to a hospital in Mexico City for a life-saving transplant dropped it.

A helicopter was used to deliver the heart in what's called "a rapid, precision maneuver."


But after getting out of the helicopter, the medic appears to trip on a pothole.

That sent the plastic-wrapped heart tumbling out of a cooler and onto the street.

The medic immediately retrieved the heart and put in back in the cooler.

It was brought into the hospital where the transplant team was waiting.

Doctors proceeded with the surgery, which was reportedly a success.

The doctor in charge of the operation tells, The Telegraph, "Its arrival was a bit scary, but fortunately it all went well. Because we had the heart perfectly protected as it was packed in three layers," he said.
