What Can Your “Funny Bone” Tell You About Your Health?

Have you ever hit the inside of your elbow in just the right spot and felt a tingling or prickly kind of dull pain? That’s your “funny bone”! It doesn’t really hurt as much as it feels weird. The “funny bone” got its nickname because of that funny feeling you get after you hit it.

The origins of the term funny bone are often contested. Some believe it’s because the area in question is connected to the humerus, the long upper-arm bone. Others say it has to do with how strange the pain feels when you hit the “bone.” But your funny bone isn’t actually a bone at all. Running down the inside part of your elbow is a nerve called the ulnar nerve. The ulnar nerve lets your brain know about feelings in your fourth and fifth fingers. It’s also one of the nerves that controls some movement of your hand.

Training is a life style. Utilize it well, or reap the results of neglect.

Cicero – “It is exercise alone that supports the spirits, and keeps the mind in vigor. Cicero lived 106 BC to 43 BC and was a Roman philosopher and much more.

Ralph Waldo Emerson – “The first wealth is health.” Ralph Waldo Emerson lived from 1803 to 1882 and led the Transcendentalist movement. He was an essayist, poet and lecturer.

Unknown source “We spend the first half of our lives using health to gain wealth, and then the other half spending our wealth to gain health.”

Earl of Derby – “Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness.” Earl of Derby was an English title first given to Robert de Ferrers, the first Earl of Derby, 1139.

This is an obvious expression of people are want entitlements and people who want to earn their own way.
Liberals: believe in government action to achieve equal opportunity and equality for all. It is the duty of the govt to alleviate social ills and to protect civil liberties and individual and human rights. Believe the role of the govt should be to guarantee that no one is in need. Liberal policies generally emphasize the need for the govt to solve problems.
Conservatives – believe in personal responsibility, limited govt, free markets, individual liberty, traditional American values and a strong defense. Believe the role of govt should be to provide people the freedom necessary to pursue their own goals. Conservative policies generally emphasize empowerment of the individual to solve problems.
In short: Libs want someone to do it for them…..Cons want the liberty to do for themselves. What say you?

Give Blood

Every day in the United States, hospitals encounter patients in desperate need of a blood donation. Blood is needed for many situations including life threatening illnesses and everyday surgeries. In fact, about every two seconds, someone in America needs blood.

Not only can giving blood help save lives, but it can also have health benefits for you. Giving a blood donation helps makes your blood thinner, reduces blood pressure and the risk of a heart attack and lowers the buildup of iron in your blood. Having thick or sticky blood causes your heart to work much harder to pump, forcing your heart to also squeeze harder, which can then lead to damage in the lining. When damage is detected, arteries begin to build calluses which accumulate plaque and narrow the passage for blood to flow properly. By donating, it is believed to decrease thickness in your blood, making it easier for your heart to pump. Your heart is then able to move blood throughout your body more easily and prevents the risk of plaque buildup. Overall, giving blood not only can save others’ lives, but can have life-changing effects for you too!

Although many may want to donate, not everyone is eligible. There are restrictions such as age, weight, and overall health.
