The Dryness of the Eyes
June 16, 2018

Severe dry eyes are a condition which is called Sjorgen’s an autoimmune condition which causes dry eyes, soreness, burning sensation within the eyes. Dry mouth, difficulty swallowing and joint pain. There are special eye drops which can be prescribed by a doctor and there’s over the counter drops as well. When my eyes are severely dry there will be lost of rest occurring. Less time spent online because there “could be” more burning of the eyes when having to look at the screen. Oh yes there’s the itching sometimes my eyes are so itchy that I’m scratching my eyes harshly.

The redness will occur and I’ve discovered just a few minuets in the sun will help also being in a circulated room or building helps with the irritation. My eyes seem “to experience” painful episodes. Placing the eyes drops in my eyes help to relieve the irritation and scratching of the eyes. There are some having to deal with severe dry eyes and they may be unaware how to manage the pain and dryness. Obtaining rest is necessary, there are many symptoms along with the condition. Just looking at certain objects could cause some irritation that’s why it’s important to rest the eyes.

My diagnoses was discovered by a Doctor named Dr. Jeffrey Ritter. The discovery helped I too did tell Dr. Ritter that I believed I had Sjorgen’s but he’s the doctor so therefore the diagnoses was confirmed.  Dealing with Sjorgen’s is a pain in the rear. There seems to be the though of just wanting to lay down in bed and keep the lights off. There has to be more research pertaining to autoimmune conditions there are a lot of doctors unaware of the symptoms related to most autoimmune conditions. “Dryness of the eyes can make a person irritable and the pain can be difficult to manage sometimes.” (Tanikka Paulk).

There are a lot of People without any understanding of how patients are affected by autoimmune conditions. It’s difficult to know how a person is feeling unless individuals are having the same symptoms. I’ve been dealing with autoimmune conditions for many years now. I’m learning the best ways to try and manage  Sjorgen’s. Yes, the dryness seems to be so severe, and there are times when I may want to  stay closed up. The inflammation is when the pain is extreme.

There are home “remedies” which help. Apple cider vinegar seems to help lower the inflammation within the eyes and the joints. There are many uses for apple cider vinegar. I’ve also discovered that pepper helps to alleviate the pain. There’s also the swelling of the eyes. A cool compress seems to help relieve the pain related to the swelling. There are many doctors continuing to do research related to autoimmune conditions. Although there’s the pain and irritation I’m still grateful to be able to see even when there is less vision.

May 4, 2017

Bored with the regular scrambled eggs?


Are you or your kids having problems with constipation?


Here is one recipe that kills two birds with one stone which I am sure you will it helpful to solve your problem.


My kids are having constipation due to the hot weather. They aren’t drinking enough fluids and not a fan of fruits which had induced constipation problems for the past week.


Hence, I was seraching online for some home remedy solutions and found out that Chinese chives are beneficial to cure constipation for both adults and kids.


It is known that chives are difficult to digest in your digestive system. Hence, the unbroken chives will bind with the waste and slippery chives would pull out the waste into the Transverse colon easily.


Since I wanted to be sure that this home remedy work out as a miracle as it was claimed, I tested it myself by adding chopped chives into scrambled egg and had it with dinner last 2 days ago.


Indeed today morning, I had a stomachache, wasn’t severe, could feel the bowel movements were contracting and within minutes, the waste in the toilet bowl were binded with chives that I ate!


Although it might sound gross but that is the evidence of chives is a perfect home remedy for constipation.


All you need is buy a packet of chives in the vegetable department. It is usually sold in a bunch or packet of fresh chives with dirts. Hence, you need to cut the chives into halves, soak them in a basin of water in order to remove the dirts. However becareful of the flies. These pesky insects love the foul odor smelling of chives.


A bunch of chives may look a lot but when you cut them or chop them, you will only get a cup of chives, not much I must say.


Omelette is perfect for any add ons. Chives and shrimps make a wonderful combination that your kids would be able to love this delicious recipe for years!
