Did You Know?


Bee Sting Remedy 

Think fizz for quick relief. First, attempt to gently scrape away the stinger with a credit card or dull knife. (Don’t squeeze—it could release more venom.) Next, make a paste of baking soda and water, and then rub it right onto the sting. Better yet, grab a tablet of Alka-Seltzer® and moisten it just a bit before applying it to the sting. Alka-Seltzer contains both baking soda and citric acid. When moistened, they react with a FIZZ, enabling the baking soda to dissolve from the tablet into the sting. It also helps to relieve the pain! 

Avocados are Good for Your Eyes: The fruit contains the antioxidant lutein and zeaxanthin that filter harmful blue UV rays from the sun; that, along with the high levels of monounsaturated fats found in avocados may help prevent the risk of macular degeneration and cataracts (Marvin Lipman, MD, chief medical adviser for consumer Reports.) 

Barbecue Better: Rub a cut potato or onion on the grates so that food doesn’t stick—or use the onion to help clean the grill. 

Get Rid of Fruit Flies and Gnats: Fruit flies and gnats are the ghosts of the pest world—they seem to appear out of nowhere. If you have fruit flies hovering around the trash can, your bunch of bananas or your potted plants, here's a way to get rid of them naturally... Set out a small plastic container filled with a mixture of one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, six drops of liquid dish detergent, and one-half cup of water. The bugs will fly in, but they won't fly out. If you are serving up a big bowl of fruit for guests and you don't want a bowl of vinegar hanging around, disperse a bunch of mint leaves among the fruit in the bowl. Fruit flies hate mint and will depart early from your party.

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone,

Do you know where your laughing place is?

Last month I honored myself by attending the Association of Applied Therapeutic Humor conference. It reminded me why I became a certified Laugh Leader 18 years ago. 

Laughter and joy are the benchmarks of humor. The beneficial power of laughter is enormous. Its ability to relieve pain, stress, and a myriad of other issues enriches the quality of our lives. Laughter even builds psychological antibodies against “should-ing” on oneself. 

Have you ever laughed so hard that tears rolled down your face…or for that matter, tears rolled down your legs? 

It’s a universal language shared and appreciated by everyone who participates. Laughter is infectious…and it’s free. 

Remember, everybody has a laughing place; you just have to take the time to go there. 

Carve out some time in your life for what matters to you….Be kind to yourself, honor what makes you happy, and remember to laugh.

To Your Success,

Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA
