  • Popular South African Pastor Dies Following 30 Days Fasting to Beat Jesus Christ's Record

    A quick reminder not to dare God, after a popular South African pastor dies following 30 days fasting in a bid to break Jesus Christ's record. 

     

    In a determined bid to break the record set by Jesus Christ of Nazareth, a 44-year-old popular South African pastor, Alfred Ndlovu, has died of malnutrition following a dry fasting that lasted for 30 days.
     
    According to Buzz South Africa, the cleric left home on June 17 for a nearby bush to have prayers just like Jesus did in an attempt to equal or break Jesus Christ's record of fasting for 40 days, but died just a month despite having no history of illness. 
     
    It was learnt that the pastor was alone in the wilderness and his body was found by a stranger who then called on his family, congragation and the police. 
     
    He was known by his family and community at large as a very spiritual person whose faith could move mountains and his death surprised everyone, even church members.
     
    A close relative said: "He was a very spiritual man. Its unfortunate he had to die this way. After a month we got the sad news of his death. Pastor was a healthy and religious old man who did not even look his age."

  • HOW TO REMOVE DENTAL PLAQUE IN 5 MINUTES NATURALLY, WITHOUT GOING TO THE DENTIST!!!

    Plaque is a common cosmetic issue for both men and women. It’s a sticky film that accumulates on your teeth. Plaque contains a mass of bacteria and if left untreated, it can lead to gum disease and halitosis (bad breath).

     

    Sadly, you can’t do anything to prevent the formation of plaque on your teeth. However, there are several natural treatments you can do at home to prevent or reduce plaque accumulation.

     

    Due to nicotine, plaque deposits in smokers are dark yellow and the same is true of people who drink lots of coffee. Although it seems harmless, plaque is actually the first phase of what may result in tooth decay and even tooth loss.

     

    The conventional dental procedure for plaque removal is known as deep prophylaxis. The procedure is affordable, but most people avoid it simply because they are time-bound or don’t like going to the dentist.

    If you also belong to this group, read on and find out how you can improve your dental health using simple, yet effective natural remedies at home.

    Home Remedy #1

    Ingredients:

    • ½ l water
    • 60g nutshell flour

    Directions:

    Mix the ingredients in a pot then bring to a boil. Simmer for 10 minutes over low heat. Remove from heat and let cool. You should get a paste-like mixture similar to toothpaste. Use this to brush your teeth for 5 minutes twice a month.

    Home Remedy #2

    Ingredients:

     2 sunflower seed flour
    • 2 lime juice
    • ½ l water

    Directions:

    Use a pot to mix the ingredients then bring to a boil and simmer for an hour over low heat. Use the mixture to brush your teeth for 5 minutes twice a month. It’ll prevent plaque and tartar formation on your teeth.

    Proper and regular dental hygiene is vital for your oral health. The following tips will help you keep your dental hygiene at an optimal level.

    TIPS

    • Never miss a day to brush your teeth; ideally you should brush after each meal or at least twice a day.
    • Spend at least 2 minutes brushing.
    • Always choose milder toothpaste, as most conventional types contain harsh chemicals that hamper your oral pH.
    • Floss every night before bedtime to remove food residues that remains stuck between teeth.
    • Use a mouthwash regularly. The natural varieties which you can make at home, such as thyme and mint infusion, are the best ones. You can also mix sea water and regular water in a ratio 1:2.
    • For plaque deposits that won’t come off, visit a dentist, but don’t do the plaque-removing procedure too often as it can damage your tooth

  • IF YOU HAVE THESE TWO HOLES ON YOUR BACK YOU ARE REALLY SPECIAL

     

    They are called Venus holes; these are small circles, which are formed on the lower back in men and women. If they are found in men then they are called Apollo holes.

    They are located on the site of the junction between the two bones of the pelvis, and can be seen only in people who have this genetic predisposition or the appropriate size ligaments. We cannot choose whether we have them or not, because it usually depends on genetics.

    They are a sign of good circulation and a healthy body, a great circulation is an important prerequisite to achieve orgasm more easily.

    Since Venus holes are located at the place where there is no muscle, it is impossible to create some exercises that can make them show up, but if you work to eliminate excess body fat, these holes can become visible.

  • Boil Bananas Before Bed, Drink the Liquid and You Will Not Believe What Happens to Your Sleep

    We’ve all had those restless nights of tossing and turning, staring at the ceiling, unable to get more than a couple hours of shuteye. The more you worry about not sleeping, the more your mind races, and next thing you know, the sun is peeking through the window. I’ve spent one too many nights this way and needed to put an end to my poor sleeping patterns. I came across this delicious tea recipe and it improved my cycle completely.
    Irregular sleeping patterns or even insomnia can stem from several different things like depression, stress and anxiety. Almost every night, I would get into bed and my mind would be racing. Whether I was thinking about work, family, or simply the things I needed to get done the next day, I just couldn’t allow myself to relax. If your mind is active, chances are you won’t fall asleep.
    Certain medications can also cause insomnia. Pain medications, antihistamines, and heart and blood pressure medicines are among the many that contribute to sleep loss. Yes, some meds might actually make you drowsy at first, but they can also trigger frequent bathroom trips or anxiety which can further disturb your rest.
    Whether it’s one of these issues or maybe it’s that you’re addicted to your phone when you should be sleeping, something needs to change.

     Banana Tea

    Using only a couple items that are likely already in your kitchen, you can whip together a banana tea in no time! This organic, banana-infused sleep remedy works wonders and tastes so good. How does it work? Bananas, especially the peels, are loaded with potassium and magnesium. While magnesium helps prevent sleep disturbances, both magnesium and potassium work together to help relax muscles. In fact, magnesium is one of the best minerals for relaxation! Keep in mind, this recipe calls for 100% organic bananas. Bananas that are not organic are loaded with harmful pesticides and since we encourage you to eat the boiled peel, it must be chemical-free.
    This tea takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and can be enjoyed every night before bed.

     

     

    Ingredients

    1 organic banana

    1 small pot of water

    a dash of cinnamon (optional)

     

    All you need to do is cut off both ends of the banana and place it, peel and all, into boiling water. Boil it for around 10 minutes. Using a colander, pour the water into a mug. If you’re feeling adventurous, sprinkle the cinnamon into the tea. Drink it one hour before bed time.

    If you’re worried about being wasteful, you’ve clearly never had a boiled banana before! After the banana has been boiled, sprinkle some cinnamon over it. Eating the warm, gooey fruit and its peel along with the tea will increase its soothing effects… Not to mention it makes a yummy dessert!

    Why Sleeping Pills Are Bad
    Out of despair, many of us have resorted to sleeping pills and with almost half of the American population suffering from insomnia or poor sleep, it’s no wonder. But here’s the thing: sleeping pills cannot help you long-term. They provide a short-term fix.

     

    The majority of sleeping pills are a specific type of drug that induces and maintains sleep. They’re classified as something called sedative hypnotics. Among other sedative hypnotic drugs are benzodiazepines and barbiturates. Benzodiazepines—like Xanax and Valium—can be addictive and are used to treat anxiety disorders by increasing drowsiness. Barbiturates depress the central nervous system are used as anesthetics and sedatives.

    As with all drugs, there’s a list of side effects that accompany sleeping pills. Aside from the likeliness of them being habit-forming, they can cause the following:

    Constipation

    Dizziness

    Difficulty focusing and remembering

    Stomach pain

    Weakness

    Uncontrollable shaking

    Parasomnias (Doing things without realizing it… Scary!)
    Sleeping pills also cause your breathing rhythm to slow down and significantly lighten. This means that if you’re already suffering from lung diseases like COPD or even asthma, these meds can be dangerous and even fatal.

     

    How Sleep Deprivation Affects the Body

    Getting less than eight hours of sleep is bad for your body. When I found out the consequences little to no sleep had on my body, I panicked!
    When your body doesn’t get enough rest, generally less than eight hours, it suffers. Cognitive function—your long- and short-term memory—is seriously affected. Have you ever tried to focus on a task while running on zero fuel? I have and I know it’s near impossible. Processing even the simplest things seems challenging and your emotional responses to things become totally skewed. The scariest part is that sleep deprivation has been linked to serious health problems including obesity, diabetes and cancer.

  • 10 Tooth Brushing Mistakes You Must Avoid

     

    Brushing your teeth as part of your morning and evening rituals plays an important role in oral hygiene. It helps you maintain good oral health by removing food particles, debris and plaque from your teeth and bacteria from your mouth.

    Good oral health also impacts your overall health. It helps prevent respiratory diseases, reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, improve cognitive functioning and prevent stomach disorders.

    Although tooth brushing is a common task, many of us do not do it correctly. There are many common mistakes that we all commit. To maintain good oral health, you must be aware of these mistakes and avoid them.

    Here are the top 10 tooth brushing mistakes that you must avoid.

    Mistake #1: Using the Wrong Toothbrush

    Toothbrushes come in different sizes, and most people do not know which size to purchase and often do not give it any thought. To clean your teeth correctly, you need to use a properly sized toothbrush.

    If it’s too big, you may have to strain your mouth to keep it open. If it is too small, then proper cleaning will not be possible. When a toothbrush feels good in your hand and mouth and reaches every tooth, then it is the right size.

    You can buy a manual or an electronic toothbrush, whichever you prefer. People who have arthritis or pain in their hands, arms or shoulders may find that an electronic toothbrush is a good option.

    Mistake #2: Choosing the Wrong Bristles

    Just like there are different sizes of toothbrushes, they are also made with different bristles. They may have straight, round, angled or zigzag bristles. Dentists say that angled bristles are generally the best, as they help clean all the teeth properly irrespective of their position.

    Along with the pattern, you need to consider the quality of the bristles. Avoid using a brush with hard and stiff bristles that can erode your dental enamel, irritate your gums and cause recession. Always use a soft-to medium-bristled toothbrush.

    Mistake #3: Using the Wrong Brushing Technique

    We all brush our teeth daily, but we do not give much thought to the technique. The American Dental Association has prepared this guideline on the correct brushing technique:

    1. Align the toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gum line.
    2. Using short, gentle strokes, move the toothbrush back and forth around your teeth.
    3. Then brush circularly or vertically around the outer, inner and chewing surfaces of all your teeth.
    4. When done, brush your tongue to remove bacteria and prevent bad breath.
    5. Finish by rinsing your mouth thoroughly.

    By following this guideline, you can keep your teeth clea, remove plaque, prevent cavities and get rid of bacteria in your mouth.

    Mistake #4: Not Brushing Adequately

    For overall oral health, the American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth at least twice a day and preferably three times. You must brush in the morning, before going to bed and, if needed, after eating a meal. This will help remove plaque and neutralize the pH of your mouth, keeping your teeth clean and healthy.

     

    You must also brush for 2 minutes, but most people do not follow this routine. To ensure you are spending the required time brushing, divide your teeth into four sections: top left, top right, bottom left and bottom right. While brushing, spend 30 seconds in each section.

    Mistake #5: Brushing Too Frequently

    Some people are overly hygiene-conscious and end up brushing their teeth too frequently. If you brush more than 3 times a day, it can harm your teeth. It can lead to recession of the gum line as well as hastened erosion of dental enamel.

    So, it is advisable not to overdo it. The trick to good oral health is to brush gently for 2 minutes, 2 or 3 times a day.

    Mistake #6: Starting at the Same Spot Each Time

    Most of us start brushing our teeth at the same spot. It’s a common mistake. When we start at a particular point every time we pick up a toothbrush, there is a high chance of getting lazy once we reach the last quadrant of our teeth. This means proper cleaning is not done.

    To clean your teeth thoroughly, dentists recommend to start brushing in a different place each time. This way, all your teeth will get equal time and cleaning. 

    Mistake #7: Ignoring the Inner Surfaces of the Teeth

    While brushing our teeth in the busy morning time, our minds might be preoccupied and we can forget to brush our teeth’s inner surfaces. Such a mistake can lead to a buildup of plaque on the inner surfaces. This can be just as damaging as the plaque on the front of your teeth.

    When brushing, do not focus only on the front of your teeth because it’s the side that is most visible.  You must also brush the inner surfaces of all your teeth to maintain good oral health.

    Mistake #8: Not Rinsing Your Toothbrush After Use

    In our rush to get out of the house in the morning or off to bed at night, we often don’t take time to rinse our toothbrush properly after using it. Due to this, bacteria and food debris remain on the bristles, which may cause infection and gum disease later on. Plus, it may cause the bristles on the brush to become hard.

    To prevent reintroducing bacteria and other germs into your mouth the next time you brush, rinse your toothbrush thoroughly after each use. It is best to hold the toothbrush under running tap water for 1 minute and then allow it to air dry. This will help remove any leftover toothpaste, bacteria and food particles.

    Mistake #9: Storing Your Toothbrush Wet

    Perhaps you are already vigilant about rinsing your toothbrush after each use, but do you put it away in the bathroom cabinet when it is still wet?

    A damp toothbrush becomes a breeding ground for bacteria, and the next time you use it, you are unknowingly introducing bacteria into your mouth, which can cause bad breath and other gum diseases.

    To rectify this mistake, after rinsing your toothbrush, shake off the extra moisture and store it in a brush holder with a cap that allows air in. You can even dry out your toothbrush in the sun for a few minutes. Plus, you can keep two toothbrushes handy, so that one is always dry.

     

    Mistake #10: Not Replacing Your Old Toothbrush

    Many of us use a toothbrush as long as we can. But this is a big mistake that you must avoid. After using a toothbrush for a few months, the bristles start bending and become frayed. A toothbrush in this condition will not clean your teeth properly. Dental experts recommend replacing a toothbrush every 3 to 4 months.

    Take a close look at your brush regularly and make sure the bristles are flexible and straight. If the bristles look frayed, change your toothbrush immediately.
