Health Benefits of Sea Moss / Irish Moss
Sea Moss (also known as #IrishMoss ), as it turns out, is nature's only plant based source of #thyroidhormones . You listening ladies?
DI-Iodothyronine (DIT), what T3 breaks down into, is found in abundance in brown sea moss and for this reason it has been used as a treatment for #thyroiddisorders . Thyroxin (T4) and Tri-iodothyronine (T3) have been found as the main organically bound iodine compounds in several brown seaweeds (sea moss).
Then of course there is the iodine, more concentrated in sea moss than any other food and this is serious fuel for the thyroid. Selenium is also present in abundance and is a necessary factor in #thyroid hormone production.
Sea Moss is also jam packed full of #potassium . The cells of the body cannot function without potassium though strangely, our bodies do not have a mechanism to conserve potassium. Adding high-potassium foods like Sea Moss to the diet can significantly improve behaviour and mental functioning (especially for #ADD children). High potassium foods are also very helpful for #fibromyalgia , moodiness, agitation, #depression and #anxiety disorders. This food is like a warm cup of tea and good book by the fire for the nervous system.
If all that wasn't enough, Sea Moss contains #Algin . This phytonutrient has therapeutic value as a heavy metal detoxifying agent - meaning it helps pull heavy metals out of the tissues of our bodies. Additionally, $SeaMoss is a healing agent to all mucous membranes (great for external skin health and internal digestive tract health). #ImmuneSupport
Sea Moss helps relieve and prevent symptoms of colds and flus - how perfect for the winter months ahead. Irish moss is a source of potassium chloride, a nutrient which helps to dissolve catarrhs (inflammation and phlegm in the mucous membranes), which cause congestion. It also contains compounds which act as natural antimicrobial and antiviral agents, helping to get rid of any infections. Cold, flu-like, and other coughy-mucousy conditions the moss helps with include:

ისე, ექიმო ჰოფრატ, პნევმოთორაქსები მაგრად დაგიძველდა, მაგრამ რომელი ტბ კვლევა დაჩრდილავს შენს ჯადოსნურ მთას!
ეჰ... კაი ჰანს კასტორფს გაყვებოდა კაცი ახლა მუზეუმში, მაგრამ რათ გინდა...
One of my absolute FAVORITE historical occurances was the the New England Vampire Panic of the 1800s. Essentially, people were dying of tuberculosis BUT they didn't know it was TB, they believed it was their dead loved ones consuming them....so what did they do? They exhumed the bodies of their dead relatives and removed their hearts and eternal organs and burned them to stop the "Vampire." They even sometimes breathed in the smoke to "cure" them. Hopefully one day I can do an entire episode on the scare and visit such notable sites as Mercy Brown's GRAVE. 😈😈☠️🌹 .

I shot this campaign for Johnson & Johnson in Hyderabad.
J&J has joined hands with the government of India to tackle Tuberculosis.
It is an initiative to educate the people about Tuberculosis and how to tackle it.
This is a street play at a village in Telangana. The NGO workers conduct such plays to spread awareness to the people in small towns.
This is saving many lives and hope we can fight it together.
La #tuberculosis (abreviada TBC o TB), llamada antiguamente tisis (del griego φθίσις, a través del latín phthisis) es una infección bacteriana contagiosa que compromete principalmente a los pulmones, pero puede propagarse a otros órganos. La especie de bacteria más importante y representativa causante de tuberculosis es Mycobacterium tuberculosis o bacilo de Koch, perteneciente al complejo Mycobacterium tuberculosis. La TBC es posiblemente la enfermedad infecciosa más prevalente en el mundo. #microbiology
Mummy I’m Ill⠀
This doll-like bundle contains a dark secret: the mummy of a young Incan boy from South America, less than ten years old when he died and buried within the past 500 years. A team of archaeologists have managed to peek inside his carefully-layered wrappings using CT-scanning, usually used to see inside the bodies of living humans rather than the dead. This revealed the boy had a number of serious health issues including neurofibromatosis type 1, which affects the bones and soft tissues. He also had signs of the parasitic infection Chagas disease and a lung infection that looked like it might have been tuberculosis. But illness wasn’t the cause of his death, as the scientists found signs of a possible grisly end from violent stabbing. Whether it was through war, murder, accident or human sacrifice, it’s likely that this was the final blow that sadly killed an already sick child.⠀

Born and raised in China during tumultuous times, Tu Youyou decided to pursue a career in #medicine after contracting #tuberculosis at the age of 16, believing that by learning medical skills she could help keep herself healthy while also helping to cure many other people. Tu was the first #Chinese woman to win a @nobelprize_org, and the first Chinese #Nobel laureate in physiology or medicine. She received the award jointly for her work in developing a drug to combat #malaria based on ancient herbal medicine; a discovery regarded as a significant breakthrough in the 20th century that has saved millions of lives. #WomenScienceWednesday#WSW#AdventureSci#Nashville
#TuberculosisPrevention It may sound like a disease of the past, but tuberculosis, or TB, is still a real concern today. And as the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. In other words, the best way to be well is to avoid getting sick in the first place. How Is TB Spread?
A person who has the active disease in their lungs can spread it through the air. “Active” means the TB germs are multiplying and spreading in your body. If you’re in close contact with someone who has it, you can get it. That’s why doctors advise those who have active TB disease to stay home and away from other people as much as possible, until they’re no longer infectious. Ritecare offers TB screening at a low cost of $45. Testing and prevention is key to keep this from spreading. #TB#Tuberculosis#TBScreening#Health#Healthyliving#Positiveliving#Ritecare
This patient suffered from enterocutaneous fistula due to abdominal TB. It means that the intestines were too "fragile" due to tuberculosis infection, that any insult would potentially make the intestine burst. After 2 months, we were able to close the wound using skin flap, and now he is able to do his dailylife activities like a normal person. This would not have happened without a solid teamwork between the attendings, the residents, and all the supportive members of the team.
FYI, this is an extremely difficult case to deal with. On one side, you have to take care of the wound bed, but the fistula keeps spilling off intestinal contents, which is full of bacteria and irritative contents. This requires a lot of energy expenditure, while the patient is constantly losing fluid through the fistula, which causes dehydration & hypoproteinemia state, which in turn result in poor wound healing.
Look at the picture in the bottom right? Isn't it beautiful?
Well done to all of us!
