Bits and Pieces

Plaque:
How can you tell for sure that you have plaque? Gently scrape the inside of one of your molars with your finger. You should notice some white stuff under your fingernail, known as plaque which is a sticky film of bacteria that develops on teeth. If not removed, it starts to harden in due course.

Gout:

It is actually a form of arthritis that can occur unexpectedly. The pain can be excruciating and unbearable, particular at night. The skin in the area of the problem turns red-hot, swollen and tender and can last for a long time. It is caused by uric acid present in bloodstreams. For some reason it is also considered to be inherited by royalty. Usually, an attack of gout is directed at the big toe, although it can also affect the other joints that become inflamed.

Flatulence

What mostly cause flatulence are beans and legumes, particularly when these are not cooked well. However, there is a solution: Soaking these in water for about 24 hours can help expel their gas-producing properties, followed by at least 30 minutes of cooking.

Earwax:

Some doctors tell their patients that the presence of wax in their ears should make them feel lucky. However, when the wax accumulates, it tends to harden and plug the eardrum and needs to be removed.
