It appears that serrapeptase is the solution to my current knee problem. Earlier I wrote about the problems I was having with my knee.

Knee Anatomy

What does it mean when your knee starts popping and swelling? Is it because of a tear in the meniscus or is it because of a maladjusted spine?

From my experience I think adopting a ketogenic lifestyle will cause temporary blurred vision in some people. I noticed that after I went on a LCHF ketogenic way of eating my vision started to get blurry. I wear reading glasses and at times they didn’t seem strong enough.

Homemade Conditioner

Now that I’ve shared with you my trials and errors with shampoos, it’s time to share my trials and errors with homemade conditioners. Actually, my trials and errors weren’t so bad, it’s just that when you have kinky 4C hair like I do, you have to make sure the conditioner’s consistency is correct. My First… Read More

Honey Water Shampoo

I’m taking the plunge! I’ve decided to forgo all commercial hair care products and make my own. Yes, I know there are a host of “natural” hair care products on the market, but I’ve decided not to use them. I’ve decided to use the experimentation and trial and error method for caring for my hair… Read More

Liver Love

How often do we think about our livers? When we think of health we think of reaching a certain weight, having clear skin, being free from aches and pains and having an overall robust energy level. If we get a pimple, we’re quick to alter our beauty routine to get rid of it. If we… Read More
