We injected proteins into our home made rock biscuits. We added 10% insect powder to the mix. It was a bit of trial and error, but if you add too much insect powder, they won’t come out very “rocky”. Add raisins and orange peel to taste.
Serving patients in the ER means you see a lot of sad things — rape, domestic violence, assaults, and suicides. How do you deal with sad cases and keep it from affecting you? Sometimes I take a breather or talk it out with a colleague, other times I cry after work or even in the break room, other times I process it later at home sitting on my meditation mat and saying a prayer for the victim. Every time I tell myself I was someone who helped during a tragedy and that I was there to bear witness and act in service to others. Some Emergency Physicians turn to alcohol or even drugs (illicit or prescribed.) But not me. Everyday I sweat it out in my home gym, especially after dealing with a sad or tragic case. Working out is my daily therapy and so cathartic and such a great release. It’s what allows me to keep doing this difficult and trying job. I’m so thankful to have found this positive outlet of fitness. What’s your outlet for the sad things you see and deal with?

Whenever you smell a flower or herb, you’re experiencing the marvelous aroma of an essential oil. These precious oils are made up of ‘volatile aromatic compounds’ – small, organic molecules that can quickly change from their solid or liquid state to gas when at room temperature.
As well as giving plants their fragrance, essential oils have been used for thousands of years for their medicinal and therapeutic properties. Every essential oil contains a unique concoction of these volatile aromatic compounds, meaning that each has its own special benefits and traits.
Lavender is by far the most well known essential oil out there, and for good reason. The perfumed plant has been used in medicine for at least 2,500 years. The Romans loved the stuff, washing in it as a way to cleanse both the body and spirit. It’s not surprising then that the name comes from the Latin root lavare, meaning ‘to wash’. 2. Peppermint
We’re all familiar with the strong and fresh taste of peppermint, whether it’s the minty freshness of our toothpaste or the delicious combination of mint and chocolate. However, peppermint is also a fantastic essential oil with a range of purported health benefits.
If you’re familiar with the story of the Three Wise Men, you’ll probably remember that Frankincense was one of the three gifts offered. This was because the aromatic resin, obtained from plants in the Boswellia family, has long been treasured as a precious incense, known for its healing properties.
How to Get the Most Out of Your Essential Oils
Essential oils are rarely cheap so making sure you get what you pay for is important. When purchasing your oils, make sure you steer clear from products labelled ‘fragrance oil’ or ‘perfume oil’. More often than not, these contain synthetic materials and don’t have any of the health benefits of the real deal.
Cacao and Cocoa are commonly confused. Despite both deriving from the same plant, Cacao has a number of unique properties that make it one of the most powerful superfoods in the world.
The major differences stem from the way these ingredients are processed – Cacao is the purest and most raw form of the ingredient you can find, while cocoa, cocoa powder or chocolate undergo various methods of treatment that reduce they’re health capability.
1. Cacao originated in Central and South America
The Cacao tree originates from tropical regions of Central and South America. Today, you can find this plant in agricultural areas across many regions of the globe, with 70 per cent of Cacao now grown in West Africa.
2. Cacao is processed differently to cocoa
Cacao and cocoa are both harvested from the Cacao tree seed pods. Cocoa then undergoes a significantly greater amount of processing that could involve extreme temperatures, chemical solutions and the addition of sugar, fructose, syrup and dairy products.
3. Cacao contains high levels of nutritional properties
As a result of its moderate processing, Cacao is able to retain all the natural nutrients and beneficial healthy properties of the raw bean. When found in its purest form, it contains high levels of ingredients such as magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, zinc and copper.
4. Cacao is not chocolate
We all know (and probably love) chocolate. But the two are not the same thing. The chocolate that people regularly consume from supermarkets and grocery shops across the world have similar properties to Cacao, but truly pale in comparison at offering the various health benefits that are associated with Cacao.
5. Cacao is full of antioxidants
Cacao’s antioxidant levels are off the chart. It is actually one of the most powerful superfoods in the world due to the high quantity of antioxidants that it contains – even greater than fruits and berries like blueberries that are famous for high antioxidant value.

Many of us are conscious about the number of chemicals and artificial products we regularly apply to our skin as part of our health and beauty regime. This has led to an increasing popularity of natural solutions in recent years.
For those who are concerned about high strength solutions of various medical treatments when it comes to removing skin tags, Apple Cider Vinegar may be a great natural alternative to remove these troublesome skin growths.
Due to the non-invasive aspect of skin tags and the fact that they are often invisible when covered with clothing, more people are turning to natural home remedies as a solution that can be performed over a few weeks. Among these is applying Apple Cider Vinegar to your skin, which could potentially be the easiest and cheapest method of removal.
Some people believe that the acidic properties of Apple Cider Vinegar can help to break down the tissue surrounding skin tags, causing them to eventually fall off.
It’s important to remember though that using Apple Cider Vinegar on your skin could potentially cause irritation. If this is the case, you should stop using ACV immediately and consult a doctor for alternative treatment methods.
Soak a cotton ball in Apple Cider Vinegar.
Firmly press the cotton ball to the affected skin area with a bandage or medical tape
Remove the cotton ball after 10 to 15 minutes
Wash the area with soap and warm water
Allow the area to air dry before placing any clothes or materials on top
Repeat daily for two weeks
However, the first thing you should do is check that you are using the best version of the ingredient to ensure you have the best chances of removal as well as to reduce the likelihood of unnecessary discomfort in the event that the ACV contains harmful additives.
When purchasing Apple Cider Vinegar, you should source your ingredient from an accredited retailer such as Fresh Healthcare who use organic, raw and unfiltered apple cider vinegar powder.
Ashwagandha is one of the many impressive ingredients in the world of superfoods, used for generations by various cultures to offer a wide range of benefits for the body and mind.
When it comes to natural food ingredients and supplements, there is usually much less risk of potentially harmful properties affecting your health. But like with all foods in your diet, it’s wise to consider the safety implications every now and then when taking superfoods like Ashwagandha.
As Ashwagandha has been linked with decreased blood pressure, this could potentially affect people who already have low levels or those who take medication to lower blood pressure.
For those who take medications for your blood pressure, this is one ingredient that should be taken with caution. And if you have diabetes, you should pay added attention to your blood sugar levels if you choose to take Ashwagandha.
There is limited information about whether Ashwagandha is safe to take while you’re pregnant. As such, it’s worth pausing your consumption of this ingredient during your pregnancy period. There are many other foods that should also be evaluated first before you take them when you’re pregnant, so consult a doctor for advice if you’re unsure.
Most tests on Ashwagandha are based on short-term usage, so it can’t be said for certain whether taking this supplement over prolonged periods of time can affect your body in a negative way. It’s also advised that dosages are kept to sensible amount and taken with food when possible.
Like with anything, too much of a good thing can potentially cause damage and lead to unwanted results. Using Ashwagandha responsibly as an occasional supplement in conjunction with a balanced diet and plenty of exercise is the best way to stay healthy and free of health risks.
