I can't smell or taste anything.

Almost everybody is complaining of  the same thing…. Can’t smell, can’t taste.

With the ravaging news of corona virus in the air, this symptom has drawn a lot of concerns from so many people who fear that it might be a COVID - 19 symptom.

Loss of smell or taste is not new to anybody including little kids. But it’s quite unfortunate that it’s happening when COVID-19 shares the same symptom with malaria and typhoid.

Before we give this issue more attention than it is not, I would like you to be reminded that we are in the wet season. Cold, catarrh, cough, fever, malaria and typhoid are easily contracted.

Today’s post is to teach you how to get back your sense of smell and taste.

Treat Malaria & Typhoid

Malaria and typhoid thrive during the rainy season than dry season because the disease causing organisms can easily multiply in cold/wet seasons. If the catarrh and cough you’re having is not yielding to treatment, please treat malaria and typhoid first.

If the loss of smell and taste is still there after treating malaria and typhoid, consider the following options.

Take a lot of Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps to strengthen the immune system to fight against foreign bodies that enter the system. Take a lot of vitamin C. Take lots of fruits in addition to vitamin C.

Inhale Steam

Steam inhalation didn’t originate from the outbreak of corona virus. It has been an aged long treatment used for flu treatment. Heat water in a kettle. Turn the boiled water into a bucket and bend your head downwards into the bucket to inhale the  vapor.

Ginger, Garlic and Turmeric tea

Consider combining ginger, garlic and turmeric.  Grind these three powerful spices and boil in water.  Take one cup twice daily.

Scent Leaf

This has always been my last resort for very stubborn flu. It has the ability to unblock your nose instantly from congestion caused by catarrh and cough. As you drop the sap into your nostrils, it rolls away anything in your nostrils that causes congestion.

Get scent leave, squeeze the leaves to bring out the liquid then apply it in your nostril. Make sure you inhale it. Take your head up to ensure it doesn’t come out.

Do this twice daily until your sense of smell and taste is restored. 

Please share this post with friends and family.

Three things to be considered before learning any skill

Coming from a family where the art of swimming was like an inheritance, it wasn't unusual for me to be a very good swimmer.

Years ago, we did go to farm twice or three times a week. 

Along the farm road, there is a stream. We did swim there all the time especially when we retire from the farm.

CoVid 19 is real Nigeria

It beats my imagination to think that a lot of people still believe that Covid 19 does not exist in Nigeria. A handful of people feel that our leaders are using this medium to amass Wealth for themselves. Whether our leaders are amassing wealth for themselves or not should not be our main concern for now. Our main concern should rather be safety first.

Attitude for 2020

A lot of people usually blame others for their reactions.... But that's a perspective truth.... But the whole truth is that a sugarcane still remains sweet even when crushed. You cant make a sugarcane bring out bitter sap.... Never blame people for your actions.

The tall man looks down; the short man looks up

While in the bathroom i just pondered over how a tall man bends his head in order to communicate with a short man and the short man looks up in order to talk to a tall man.

People who get angry easily have a good heart

I don’t know who made this assumption but I think this statement sounds very vague and does not hold water. Never has anger been a desirable trait. Nobody likes the way he or she acts when angry.

Choose your battles wisely

In everything in life we need wisdom. To handle issues we need wisdom. And wisdom comes from God.

Wisdom simply means when to talk and when to hold your lips... When to act and when to hold your peace.

The bible says if a fool can control his lips he'll be counted among wise men.
Following impulse at the moment is very dangerous.

There's a lot one can learn from children. When a child is among his fellow kids that bullies him, he acts very vulnerable but not at the presence of his parents. Once his parents come on the scene, they become lords because they know that those bullies won't do them anything.

I like seeing wild life documentaries.
I discovered  one of the strategies the lion uses....Though he is the king of the forest, there are times he has to run for his life, there are  times he has to wait for the right time, there are times he's got to act swiftly.

Along comes a big buffalo. The lion goes after it. The buffalo in attempt to defend himself, follows hard at the lion... The Lion runs away...

The buffalo thinks he is a hero.... He's got guts to pursue a lion... He's proud...
While he turns to leave, the lion follows hard at it having a target in mind.

The buffalo only charges without any target. The lion will always pretend to run away and come back whenever he turns back.

This continues until the lion gets it. He remains the king of the forest not only because of strength and mastery but because of wisdom.

Another one was when a lion left it's territory to drink water in a swamp full of crocodiles...

While drinking water, the crocodiles were underneath... Timing him...
As he drinks and forgets himself... May be thinking "after all I am a king. Who can challenge me?"

While drinking, the crocodiles got him on his neck... dragged him further into the swamp... His strength failed him 'cos this was not his ground.... He is a king in the forest not in the swamp... Remember He has no balance in water.....

That was how the lion lost his life.... And they enjoyed a very delicious meal...

There are fights you avoid, there are fights you stand your grounds. There are some battles you may actually win but it may cause you your whole family. At the end of  the fight, the people you're fighting for have all gone and you're left alone.
What you tried to protect gets lost.....

Before taking any action, first consider the cost, the outcome, what you're going to lose and what you are going to gain before embarking on any serious fight. Remember its not whether you're right we are talking about  but, rather whether what you are fighting for is worth fighting for.

I don't know if this is true story or not but pay attention to the lesson. Last week, I saw a video where  a pregnant lady was run over by her husband's side chick. The pregnant lady hired her friend to beat up her husband's side chick.

Both of them beat this lady in her car and left to go. They thought they had taught  her a lesson not knowing she  was a devil on skin.

Out of  anger, she slammed car  her door  and zoomed off with full speed and ran over the pregnant woman.

Firstly, she wasn't wise to have fought with that pregnancy. If she had avoided that fight, she wouldn't have lost both her life and the baby. She acted too much on her impulse.

Be it as it may, the pregnant woman lost her life for lack of wisdom.

The bible says wisdom is the principal thing. Choose your battles wisely.

Have a nice day!

Why I did not Study Law in the best University

Little Johnny plays around and won’t want to study. You’ve advised him all the time but to no avail. You call him one day and begin to tell him a story about your life. 
Just a minute Johnny I want to tell you a story. Who doesn’t like story? He runs hard to come and hear what you have for him.

Natural ways to conquer sleeplessness without medication

One of the most wonderful thing God made was rest in the form of sleep. Without  sleep, our vital organs will deteriorate and function less. Sleep helps the body system and the mind to be refreshed, repaired and smart.

They are so many health benefits of a good sleep. I’ll talk about that in another post. If you’ve been having sleep problems, today your problem is solved.

I have provided so many options here from testimonies and experiences of people who had once suffered from sleeplessness and cured. The good thing about this remedies is that they have no side effect like the medicated ones.

Because of  differences that exist  in our different  body system, it is possible that not every solution here will work for you but at least one or two will work perfectly. Stick to what works for you and give us a feedback.

My NYSC Experience in Chanchanji, Takum LGA in Taraba State.

Primary Education is a realm,Secondary Education is another different realm, the Higher institution is another different world altogether and finally NYSC is another completely different World.  Though sharing my experience will give you a clue to Youth service life but this will not take the place of your own personal experience.
