  • You could actually try drinking milk after exercising your muscles (I do stress AFTER though as drinking milk before or during is not a good idea) as it seems you then give them the building blocks they need to recover about 25% faster.

  • If FIstream actually starts putting ads on non-monetized videos by creators who never asked for them, that just goes to show how greedy this corporation can be. This thought is disgusting. FIstream is essentially making free money off small channels and not paying them a single penny. Yes, these are small channels, but since there's so many of them, FIstream will still make a huge profit off of this new policy. I don't care if FIstream hates us now, it must be said by someone. I urge to our subscribers that we spread the message to all creators, and urge FIstream to immediately repeal this new policy. - Father

  • Is there a diagnosis for someone with extreme discomfort of picturing the insides of the body? I can see blood no problem, I can talk about animals, cells, a bunch of things, but when I start imagining like organs, blood moving inside the body or anything really inside the body I panic. I've talked to psychologists and googled but there doesn't seem to be a hit. Am I broken?

  • As for CPR and ribs. I've been taught by a paramedic, that if you make sure to push right on the sternum with the heel of your hand making sure the area of contact is as small as possible you will decrease the likelihood of broken ribs due to not causing torque on the ribs. It's not a 100% guarantee. Like, if someone has osteoporosis you WILL break their ribs. But still, good to remember. But if it's gonna take you more than two seconds to remember that in case of stopped heart, don't bother and pound away immediately.

  • The doctors keep saying no cure for herpes and making people believe that there is no cure. I'm herecured to inform everybody that there is a cure. There is a cure for Genital Herpes and I was from Genital Herpes by Dr ODION with his herbal medications. I tested positive for 2019 and ever since then I have been looking for a cure. I was reading about herpes on FIstream and i saw a comment on how Dr ODION cure HERPES and HIV with herbs on the comment section, i was surprise and i contact him on the email they provided on the comment and i explain my problem to him and he also prepare the herbs and send it to me which i use for two weeks as i was instructed by Dr ODION and after 2weeks i went to the hospital for a blood test and the result was Negative and my doctor confirm with me that am fully cured from genital herpes. I'm so grateful to Dr ODION.You can also reach Dr ODION on his email: or you can text and whatsapp him on +2349019421176

  • Dr. Mike, another recommendation for soreness when you work-out take a nice hot bath with Epsom Salt, this also helps if you have Arthritis that I have, and in my case Peripheral Neuropathy in my legs from my Lupus attacking my nerves, then follow up with Epsom Salt Oil and massage it into the areas. Also, when I first went to my Chiropractor he put on Sombra Warm Therapy which is a natural pain relieving gel and it's safe for pregnant women too! This stuff is very strong, so wear disposable gloves, wash your hands cause if you touch your eyes by mistake it'll burn 🔥 and wear pajama pants and a white cotton shirt or if it's hot in your house put a towel on the couch or bed so you don't get the gel on it. Just 2 days ago I had my left shoulder and arm in pain from trying out Blouses the day before and it felt like I was having a Heart Attack like a million rubber bands cutting off the circulation and the pain was coming from my shoulder, so I put on Sombra Warm Therapy and poof not long after the pain was gone. Warning this stuff has a strong scent not from perfumes in it which it doesn't have but like when you rub on Vicks that strong smell, but once it gets into your skin and starts working the smell goes away. I've tried all the over counter stuff as well as prescription and this stuff is a Gold Mine and inexpensive too! Get the Gel one in the tub not the Bottle which is more of a lotion and is not nearly as strong and a waste of money. You'd be surprised with just a small amount of the gel in the tub how far it goes and how strong it is and you won't be running for Advil or any kind of pain killers unless you really hurt yourself during your work-out by tearing a muscle, etc. You can get it from Amazon, Walmart, just Google it ❤😍😉

  • Actually trading was not easy for me. Lost a lot of money through + 500, FBS also lost a lot of money to trading assistants and copy trader's, almost gave up on forex / Bitcoin trading. but a friend of mine introduced me to a good broker, at first i thought it was another way of wasting my hard earned savings. But my greatest surprise was my investment of $ 3,000 came out with $ 6,580 in 10 days trading ..... You just have to be patient with them till your trades are completed ..... To be honest I didn't just recovered all my previous losses .. I made much more than my past expenses .. actually she charges 15% which won't affect you in any way since her trading efficiency comes in multiples of investment ... I personally recommend Mrs Caroline trading services for best copy trading always trade with them and stop loosing your money .... reach out to her and believe me a trial will convince you Here's her contact details⬇️⬇️⬇️ +19282916039 @WhatsApp
