Unique Events for the Day: Learned that eating a spoonful / drinking fennel reduces / removes gas & bloating. According to Natural News you can chew on fennel seeds or else make a tea by crushing the seeds and pouring boiling water over them. The compounds in these seeds, as well as those in anise and dill seeds, relax muscles in your digestive tract and allow trapped gas to pass. As a bonus, you should also have fresher breath, similar to consuming parsley.
Also I found out about thinning hair- use Black currant. This contains a fat called GLA, which blocks hormonal breaking down. The black currant is the edible berry from a shrub and can be found in Northern/Central Europe and Asia. For maximum benefits, take 500ng twice per day. Caveat: this product normally takes 6-8 weeks for results. SOURCE: Dr. Oz & Dr. Weil
Waking Up: Went to bed at midnight & got up at 6:45am with the moderate right leg / buttock area of inflammation with moderate shooting pains. I find that if I do a couple of lower back stretches, it helps reduce / remove the shooting pains when I get out of the bed.
