Natural options for skin care….

One very inexpensive and user friendly skin application which gently exfoliates is Apple Vinegar, applied with a washcloth and then apply coconut oil ( which you can buy in the Hispanic cooking aisle of grocery store ) can be used on feet however, wear socks to prevent slipping. The Vinegar can be used all over the body ( smell will dissipate)…. helps the discomfort from sunburn, also use as bug repellent and  safe for use  on children, I have used this for years…

Another great face/ body treatment is Kosher Sea Salt mixed with coconut oil…YES ( cooking grocery aisle) gentle to the face and all over body scrub. Your face and body will glow, due to increased circulation.

Best exfolliant and NOT expensive…the coconut oil is also great for your hair.

Look forward to comments on your experiences with my hints & tips…..

http:// vs https://

In case you did not   know…………Difference between http and https

GREAT information!

Once in a while,   there is something that comes down the pike that is of real   importance.
What is the difference between http and https?

Don’t know how many of you are aware of this difference….                      

but it is worth sending a ” head’s ” up  for those who are not aware of this issue…
The main difference between http:// and https://… is it’s all about keeping you secure.
HTTP stands for  Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.
The S (big surprise) stands for “Secure.” If you visit a website or web page,   and look at
the address in the web browser, it will likely begin with the   following: http://.
This means that the website is talking to your   browser using the regular “unsecured”
language. In other words, it is   possible for someone to “eavesdrop”
on your computer’s conversation with   the website. If you fill out a form on the
website, someone might see the   information you send to that site.
This is why you never ever enter your credit card number in an http website! But   if the web address begins with https://, that basically  means your computer is talking to the website in a secure code that no one can   eavesdrop on.
If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card   information,
you should automatically look to see if the web address begins   with https://.
If it doesn’t, you should NEVER   enter sensitive information…..such as a credit card number, SS #,   etc.
Thought this was something of interest.. feel free to pass this information on to others…  

Comments are appreciated….

Understanding Asperger’s Syndrome

There are many health issues in our world and new ones being discovered everyday..   Many of which the general public may or may not have knowledge of or understand ,  even the general Medical field has questions regarding some of these disorders. The following is just one of many misunderstood health issues in the world today….and is presently being researched…

It is Asperger’s Syndrome, named for Dr. Hans Asperger, who was the first to describe this disorder in 1944…. However…it was not recognized as a unique disorder until years later. The symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome vary and can range from mild to severe. and is estimated to affect 6 out of every 1,000 children, and is more common in males than in females, and usually diagnosed in children between the ages of 2 and 6 years, however it is not uncommon for the disorder to go undiagnosed for years…sometimes later in adulthood… Eccentric or repetitive behaviors, with this condition may develop , with repetitive movements ,limited range of interests, and an intense, almost obsessive compulsion. Movements of people with Asperger’s syndrome may seem clumsy or awkward, and coordination may be hampered. Unusual rituals may  develop  , like getting dressed in a specific order. Many people with Asperger’s syndrome are exceptionally talented, such as in music or math.                                                                                                    If symptoms are present, an evaluation ,  by physical and medical exam is performed, although there are no specific/designated tests for Asperger’s syndrome, X-rays and blood tests may be performed , to determine if there is a physical disorder causing the symptoms. If no physical disorder is found, the patient may be referred to a specialist , such as a psychiatrist or psychologist, neurologist, or another health professional who is specially trained in developmental disorders to diagnose and treat Asperger’s syndrome.                                                                                                                                         People with Asperger’s syndrome are at risk for developing other conditions, schizophrenia, depression, ADHD and OCD ( obsessive  compulsive  disorder )however there are optional treatments available for these conditions..

Teachings are structured to meet the person’s unique needs, behavior modification supporting positive behavior and decreasing negative behavior Therapy designed to increase functional abilities, such as speech and physical, to increase functional abilities. There are no medications to cure Asperger’s syndrome , but medications may be used to treat specific symptoms, which may accompany the disorder such as depression, anxiety, hyperactivity, and obsessive-compulsive behavior. Due to the fact the level of intelligence which is many cases is higher than average, some people with Asperger’s syndrome are able to function very well, especially if diagnosis is made early in life.

Although it is not proven, this disorder may be inherited, and is passed from parent to child as it tends to run in families and cannot be prevented or cured.

Research is being done through investigating early brain development and functioning, social interactions in infants, rare genetic variants and mutations, associations between autism-related genes and physical traits, possible environmental risk factors and biomarkers, and a potential new medication treatment.
