    Skizzo, I must say you are wrong! Honey really is a magical cure. I myself go to gym and lift weights, honey gives me a lot of energy for that. Some people use suplements like “creatin” or some extra proteins, but I eat honey. It’s natural and healthy, I’m never sick. Flu doesn’t know my name. Honey is great, I eat honey and fruits which is also great for the health of the brain, and fish 2-3 times in a week. Eating healthy is very important!

    Thanks for the good information!
    Cheers!

    Skin eczema is also known as atopic dermatitis. It is a skin disorder that is characterized by itching that you cannot help but scratch resulting in red and inflamed skin. In some cases, blisters, spots, and scaly skin forms on top of the skin inflammation. This kind of skin disorder is believed to develop in people who have atopic tendencies or those whose skin is overly sensitive to certain allergens. This kind of condition is also believed to be hereditary. Eczema could manifest at any stage in one’s life but the initial manifestation is often experienced from birth until about age 5. People with this skin condition experience breakouts on and off through the years. The breakouts are usually triggered by allergens. These allergens differ from one person to another and is not easy to identify. Some common allergens include soaps and detergents, wooly fabric, dust, weather conditions or temperature changes, food, and stress among others. The eczema cure that is often prescribed by dermatologists depend on the type of eczema and the allergens that caused the eczema.

    Eating beets may cause “beeturia,” the reddening of urine or stool.

    In this case ultrasonication is often more effective when combined with other anti-microbial methods,
    such as:. Take a glass of lukewarm water and squeeze half a lime in it.
