Prevent H1N1 Flu - Good Advice

Prevent H1N1 Flu - Good Advice

Dr. Vinay Goyal is an MBBS,DRM,DNB (Intensivist and Thyroid specialist) having clinical experience of over 20 years. He has worked in institutions like Hinduja Hospital, Bombay Hospital, Saifee Hospital,Tata Memorial etc. Presently, he is heading our Nuclear Medicine Department and Thyroid clinic at Riddhivinayak Cardiac and Critical Centre, Malad (W).

The following message given by him, I feel makes a lot of sense and is important for all to know

The only portals of entry are the nostrils and mouth/throat. In a global epidemic of this nature, it's almost impossible to avoid coming into contact with H1N1 in spite of all precautions. Contact with H1N1 is not so much of a problem as proliferation is.

While you are still healthy and not showing any symptoms of H1N1 infection, in order to prevent proliferation, aggravation of symptoms and development of secondary infections, some very simple steps, not fully highlighted in most official communications, can be practiced (instead of focusing on how to stock N95 or Tamiflu):

1. Frequent hand-washing (well highlighted in all official communications).

2. "Hands-off-the-face" approach. Resist all temptations to touch any part of face (unless you want to eat, bathe or slap).

3. *
Gargle twice a day with warm salt water (use Listerine if you don't trust salt). *H1N1 takes 2-3 days after initial infection in the throat/nasal cavity to proliferate and show characteristic symptoms. Simple gargling prevents proliferation. In a way,gargling with salt water has the same effect on a healthy individual that Tamiflu has on an infected one. Don't underestimate this simple, inexpensive and powerful preventative method.

4. Similar to 3 above, *clean your nostrils at least once every day with warm salt water . *Not everybody may be good at Jala Neti or Sutra Neti (very good
Yogaasanas to clean nasal cavities), but *blowing the nose hard once a day and swabbing both nostrils with cotton buds dipped in warm salt water is very effective in bringing down viral population.*

Neti pots and sinus rinse kits are available at the drug store and relatively inexpensiveĆ¢€¦.under $15.

5. *Boost your natural immunity with foods that are rich in Vitamin C (
Amla and other citrus fruits). *If you have to supplement with Vitamin C tablets, make sure that it also has Zinc to boost absorption.

6. *Drink as much of warm liquids (tea, coffee, etc) as you can. *Drinking warm liquids has the same effect as gargling, but in the reverse direction. They wash off proliferating viruses from the throat into the stomach where they cannot survive, proliferate or do any harm.

I suggest you pass this on to your entire e-list. You never know who might pay attention to it -- and
STAY ALIVE because of it.

Cute Halloween Sugar Cookies

My neighbor Afaf left my family a very nice surprise yesterday, these adorable homemade Halloween sugar cookies.

Afaf and her Mother bake cookies all the time, I don't mean just some but from the looks of her posts they make tray fulls and they are always very adorable!

Here we have little white ghosts, orange pumpkins and the oh so scary black cat with little green whiskers. These just make you want to run out and get the supplies to start baking ;)

Thank you Afaf!

Hot New Finds: Starbuck's Ceramic Travel Mug

I have found the greatest item ever! Starbuck's has a ceramic travel mug! No not stainless or plastic but ceramic! I am so thrilled I just can't stand it ;)

I have never liked the taste of coffee in stainless or plastic cups, I have to have it in a ceramic cup or it just does not taste the same.

So I usually put my morning coffee in a regular old coffee cup and off I go. Maneuvering through bumps and traffic trying to hold the cup up so it doesn't spill coffee all over me or my car.

But not anymore. The other day I forgot my coffee and had some errands to run after dropping the kids off to school. I popped into Starbuck's to get just a regular Joe and waiting in line there gleaming on the shelf was their ceramic travel mug with a snap on leak proof lid! Like I said I was so excited.

It keeps the coffee very hot and I did burn my tongue so I have to be careful. It is double walled so the hot liquids stay hot but it's cool to the touch which is an added bonus. So very proud of my new mug!! I have been getting funny looks because of the mug, people aren't sure if Starbucks changed their carry out cups or what ;)

Happy Fall!

Military Denim Jacket Revisited

Denim jackets have always and will always be a in fashion one way or another.

Jackets from the past are new again. "What is old is now new". Think before you toss. Well maybe the 80's can go. But then again you never know. The Rachel Zoe Project just did a photo shoot for "V" and the theme was the 80's Olivia Newton John's "Let's Get Physical" look.

While shopping I came across this denim military jacket in black with black polished buttons on the front lapels. Very cute, fitted in the front and back, very flattering.

My Husband says he has one somewhere.... I wonder where and what I could do with it!! Hummmm...... need to go look ;)

All sorts of styles are in just don't wear denim from head to toe - yuck! One piece at a time. Think of it as an accessory don't overdue it.

Pair this up with a skirt, leggings and boots. Have fun.

Happy Fall Shopping!

Fall Fashion Totes and Bags

Fall is here once again, the perfect time for new Totes and Bags. This little felt like black and white plaid bag with the adorable pink accent is so cute and can go anywhere. You always need a little "pink" on.

We fell in love with the "peace" tote in fun colors. My Daughter can take it to school or to the pool to keep her towel and suit. Or to the supermarket.

This denim version of the "peace" tote is great for the trip to Border's and is roomy enough to carry the load of books you purchased home. Again with some "pink" accents again.

Okay if your not into pink maybe you will love this red bag. Red and white plaid with silver accents and draw string tie. I love this!! Make sure when you wear red keep it to a minimum like one piece. Don't over due it. Either a red bag, shoes, belt or belt NOT all of the above ;)

Happy Fall!

To Do Or Not To Do The Littlebluepill!

Men have had all the help in the Romance department for along time now. There is help out there for Women in that department now also.

I first heard about it while watching an episode of Sex In The City in the first or second season quiet a few years ago. Kim Cattral's character Samantha Jones took the littlebluepill, except it was the Men's version that she took in the show. I laughed so hard watching that episode. They actually have a littlebluepill for Women, it's Famale Viagra.

I'm not sure if this was out when Samantha took it or not. But it is apparently out now and available for all who is in need. You would just have to decide whether to do or not to do the little plue pill.

Venicon the littlebluepill for Women says that it can help put the spark back in your romance.

It you try it (available with no prescription) why not write us and let us know. Share the experience with other Women in the world who may be needing some help in the romance department. Please write us!

Happy Fall!

Keep Those Old Sweater Cardigans!

Sweater coats and cardigans are in for Fall. This is a perfect piece for your wardrobe during the transition from Summer to the brisk Fall weather.

Long knit belted cardigans and the shorter versions like this one are oh so cute with a pair of skinny jeans and boots.

The Sweater coats made of a much heavier knit are warm and comfy and can be worn any time day or night. There is such a large selection this year I don't know where to start. Old Navy to Nordstroms, Marshall's and TJ Max. They are everywhere.

I actually have two old long sweater cardigans that I have updated by just removing the knit belt that they came with and added a wide leather belt around the waist. You can also run out to Michael's or JoAnn Fabrics and grab some great new large wooden buttons that are in and switch out the old ones for a new updated look!

So "In with the old and In with the new!" Not "out with the old and in with the new!".

Happy Fall!

Shopping in Chicago in early fall is not only fun but exciting!

We went on a recent trip to attend the Chicago Food and Wine Festival. All the streets have been decorated for Fall. Pumpkins, Corn Stalks, Scarecrows and bails of hay and straw.

Each little planter has been decorated by someone different to you have several different looks.

My kids loved shopping at the Lego and American Girl Store. Having lunch and dinner at some wonderful restaurants.

Chloe' is wearing her Lilly Pulitzer green top, jean capri's with her pink scarf a must have for Fall. She also has her multi colored poncho and her new Hello Kitty Purse from the Hello Kitty Store.

She was very excited to find it and she also bought an adorable little Hello Kitty Wallet.

Jack just likes to pose for the camera! Such a little ham. This was his first trip with out the stroller and did a grand job at keeping up.

We love shopping and hanging out in Chicago and cannot wait to go back when all the Holiday lights are up. Yes, it will be cold but makes the Holiday Season don't you think?

Happy Fall!
