First Aid for Anaphylaxis : Anaphylaxis Home First Aid

First Aid for Anaphylaxis : Anaphylaxis Home First Aid


We are going to cover some of the treatment
that you can do at home before medical personnel arrives or if you don’t have access to medical
personnel. If for instance you are out in the wilderness and don’t have access to medical
personnel we are going to cover a few things you can do to prevent the spread of anaphylaxis.
Now the first step you are going to take in treating anaphylaxis is you want to find out
what is causing this reaction and remove it from the person. If it is a bee sting, you
want to try and get the stinger out. If it something that they ate you want to make sure
that, they don’t eat anymore of it. If it is something that they are breathing, you
want to try and remove them from that atmosphere. If you have an allergic reaction yourself
be very cautious, as to how you treat this person. You are not going to want to jeopardize
your own safety to help this person. Because if you end up having an allergic reaction
at the same thing it is not going to be doing either of you any good. So the first step
is to remove the substance that is causing the reaction. Identify the substance and remove
it. Another treatment that you can do at home is to give Benadryl or an antihistamine tablet.
This will keep the reaction from getting any worse. It does not stop what has already occurred
but it stops the histamine release and keep it from getting any worse. Another medication
that can be give at home is that if the person experiencing the reaction has been given an
inhaler with Albuterol in it. That’s something that can help with the breathing. So if they
start having difficulty breathing they have been prescribed and inhaler. You can use this
inhaler. It’s not recommended that you use someone else’s inhaler. So it is only recommended
to use if it has been prescribed to the person having the reaction.

First Aid for Anaphylaxis : Anaphylaxis Emergency First Aid


Here’s an example of an anaphylactic reaction
and the correct treatment that should occur. Here a young male who’s just got stung by
a bee. First thing he does is he notices that it’s obvious it’s a bee sting. First thing
he wants to do is remove himself from the area to make sure he doesn’t get stung again
and then he removes the stinger from his arm. Now, after getting stung by the bee, he begins
to notice that some hives develop on his arm. He also has some redness and swelling. Not
long after, he begins to cough. He has a little bit of tightness in his throat and is heart
rate is elevated. He also begins to feel a little bit dizzy. He also begins to feel a
little bit nauseous and slightly confused. He also begins to feel some diarrhea. Now,
the first thing he wants to do, is he realizes this could be an anaphylactic reaction so
he immediately has a friend call 911 for him. Once emergency medical personnel is notified,
the treatment he considers is he takes a couple of Benadryl that his friend has laying around
the house. If he had access to an Epipen he could give that. If he had an inhaler, he
could use that. And if he had oxygen at home, he could also do that. Now, while he’s waiting
for medical personnel to arrive, he also makes a list of any allergies he knows he has. Gives
a list of any medications he’s currently taking and also writes out any history of health
problems that he’s had in the past.

Back Pain Relief (1 of 2) – Immediate Fixes


Hey guys welcome to the channel! Today
we’re going to talk about some things that do to alleviate my back pain. These
will be more immediate things that I do when I have back pain now. This
is going to be the first of a two-part series. In the second part of this series,
I’ll go over some things that I do to prevent back pain, but first a disclaimer. The opinions or information in this video should not be taken as advice in any form, medical, financial, legal, or anything else. Please pause the video now to read the rest of the disclaimer or read it in the show notes. I came up with this list over 15 to 20 years through trial and error. We’ll start with number 10 and count our way down to number 1. Number 10 is the Spineworx. This is an
item that I got off Amazon.com. I’ll have a link to it in the show notes, but
basically it is kind of a rigid piece of plastic thing and you lay on it. It is
supposed to align your spine. I did get some relief out of this thing. I have
been told that I have reverse curvature of the spine, and to be quite honest when I first lay on this thing it’s kind of painful and doesn’t feel very good. But,
after I lay on it for a little while, that starts to feel better, and I think
it does provide some help for me. Number 9 is an ice pack — not too long though. I only use one for ten to 15 minutes at a time and if my skin starts to feel numb in that area I will remove it immediately. I was a little skeptical
about this one, but it actually works better than I thought. It seems to have the effect of taking an ibuprofen or something similar. It’s a non-drug way to get some relief from inflammation. All ice packs aren’t created equal though.
This blue one that I’ll have a link to in the show notes is a lot better than just putting it in a plastic bag. It seems to sweat a lot less, and it’s a lot more comfortable. They’re dirt cheap too they are a pretty cheap and effective solution. Number 8, stretching, especially if my hamstrings are tight from working out too much from running or biking. I’ve got two simple stretches that I’ll do. For the first one, I just sit in the floor and try to touch my toes basically a lot of times I’m so tight I can’t even get close to touching my toes and I’ll just grab my leg or and try to pull forward as much as I can. I’ll hold these stretches for, you know, 20 seconds, maybe up to a minute, and over time I’ll get a little bit more
limber even during that stretching session. The other stretch I do is the
ballerina stretch. It’s where I hike my leg up on a bar, sometimes a windowsill,
just something a little over a hip height, and I’ll lean forward and when I
do these stretches it seems to loosen my back up. Number 7, a high density foam
roller, similar to the one I’ve got pictured here on the slide. I got this at Amazon.com. I’ll have a link to one of these in the show notes. I keep a smaller one of these
at work too which is very handy. I have an office that I can actually roll on it
sometimes if I’ve having some back pain at work but at home I’ve got the bigger
version it’s about 1 yard wide it’s probably 6 to 8 inches in diameter and
it’s pretty dense and it actually kind of hurts a little bit when you’re
rolling on it but there’s various different ways you can roll on it I
mainly just roll on it lengthwise sometimes all the way from my feet to my
head sometimes and it will loosen you up quite a bit I was quite pleased with how
well this works this thing works super good in my opinion it’s probably
one of the most bang for the buck stings that I have in my arsenal to treat my
back pain and it’s predict an or 20 bucks so I wish I’d found out about
these years ago number 6 magnesium as a muscle relaxer and non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs or NSAIDs those would be like ibuprofen naproxen those
sort of things of course before making any changes to
any of your supplement or medications please check with your doctor or
pharmacist or healthcare provider as far as the magnesium goes I take one capsule
nightly sort of as a preventative measure just to kind of keep my back
loose at night and that seems to work pretty well for me when I wasn’t taking
one nightly I would take one when I was having a back spasm and that seemed to
help other people I know use magnesium oil and will rub it in they get some
relief from that they’ve told me other people will use epsom salts and a bath
and soak in it and that seems to work well for them as far as the insects go
my preferred NSAID is naproxen i’ll usually just take one I think it’s a 220
milligram tablet I’ll take once or twice a day 12 hours apart and
I’ll just take that first little time as I possibly can
doing this seems to help get the inflammation down which provides me with
some immediate relief number five bio freeze spray this was
first recommended to me by my chiropractor
I bought it his office but I’ve since found it on Amazon and Walmart and I’ll
have a link in the show notes it has menthol in it so there is a bit
of a smell however I find that the spray evaporates pretty nicely and it doesn’t
get all over everything too bad I will wear a t-shirt or
something often to kind of shield that menthol from other things I don’t want
to contaminate but this stuff’s pretty awesome
number four warm water I start out my morning by taking a warm shower and of
course that just helps get me going but I also use it if I have acute back pain
I’ll jump in the shower or a tub or a hot tub and just soak for a bit
obviously not too long I used some precautions here but the warm water just
fine just loosens me up quite a bit number three movement movement in
general really helps out my back road biking really helped it out just that
movement from the pedaling walking about 400 meters even when I really don’t feel
like it which is basically every morning really helps to loosen it up also I’ll
do some exercises called cat and camel I’ll do about 10 of those quickly just
jumping on the floor and do those real quick google it and you’ll find some
really good examples on those number two a great chiropractor they are not all
equal let me tell you I have been to a few that have been awesome though and
I’ve really been able to help me out especially in the short term they didn’t
fix it for the long term but they definitely helped me over the short term
I like to steer clear the ones that want to put you on some sort of a payment
plan I’ll mention physical therapy here as well
I know that’s a lot different than chiropractors but I have seen a lot of
people get good results from them just not me personally because I haven’t
tried them but they do seem to provide a lot of help to a lot of people from what
I have seen and heard and finally number one
Bowen therapy also known as the bowing technique bowen therapy helped fix the
reverse curvature of my spine and other therapies never did you can google that
I didn’t get an official diagnosis but I had several chiropractors tell me that I
had it over the years they could never fix it locally it cost about $60 per
session and I saw a massive results after just three sessions those
three sessions made me feel so good and I went back and had several more just to
see what else they could fix it had long-lasting effects for months maybe
even years I haven’t been back probably in a year or two and I still feel better
from it it’s just phenomenal it’s kind of a weird technique so I’ll tell you to
go ahead and just google it right now it’s bizarre but it’s the best thing
I’ve ever found thank you so much for joining me today for the video if you
liked it please hit the thumbs up button and subscribe and also look for the link
for the second part in the video where I will explain some things that I do to
prevent back pain in the first place until next time we’ll see you

First Aid for Anaphylaxis : General Allergic Reactions

First Aid for Anaphylaxis : General Allergic Reactions


Allergic reaction is nothing more than your
bodies? response to a foreign substance, this called an allergen. Allergic reaction can
be caused by any number of things. Basically, anything can cause an allergic reaction. Some
examples that I have on screen here are the four different ways that you can be exposed
to allergic reaction. One of them over here is skin contact through a plant, through animal,
through pollen or through latex are all ways the common allergic reactions happen. Another
way is through injection either through a needle at a hospital setting or through a
bee sting or any type of insect bite can also trigger an allergic reaction. If you ingest
something such as food, medication, nuts and shells are very common. Several people have
shell allergies and also to peanuts. Another one is through inhalation through pollen,
dust, mold mildew and animals. I am sure everybody has someone that they know that has an allergic
reaction of some sort and this is just overview of some of the things that can cause it.

clearing action from the dog. You might have a slightly high temperature and you might

you can do is give your dog cough syrup. So how do you give your dog cough syrup? You can different size syringes; this one

Injury Prevention Exercises for Swimmers

Injury Prevention Exercises for Swimmers


Hi there! I’m Chloe Sutton. I’m a two-time
Olympian and the first American woman to swim open water in the Olympics. Now I
started training at an elite level from about age 11 and I would do anywhere
from 80,000 to 100,000 meters per week in the pool. Now that’s
62 miles per week and that’s a lot of training and that’s a lot of strain on
your shoulders, but over the course of 15 years, I never had any shoulder injuries
of any kind and I attribute this to having a shoulder stabilization routine
that I would do after every workout. Now today I’m going to share with you five
exercises that I believe will help you keep your shoulders safe and healthy
through a long career. The first exercise is an external
rotation to strengthen the rear part of the rotator cuff. Anchor the theraband
to a pole and then rotate your arm away from your body while maintaining a
90-degree angle in your elbow. Another exercise that strengthens the
rear part of the rotator cuff as well as the upper back is shoulder extensions.
Keeping the theraband anchored, hold it in your hand extended down with your
arms slightly in front of you. Then drive your arm back while keeping your arm
straight. Next is a low row to strengthen the
muscles that hold the scapula in the proper position. This helps to correct
poor posture. Again anchor the theraband to a pole, this time taking both sides in
your hands. Then pull your elbows directly back being sure to squeeze your
shoulder blades together each row. Now we’re going to stabilize the
shoulder joint by writing the alphabet with a tennis ball against the wall.
Lean slightly forward so you have a little bit of weight on the tennis ball
to keep it in place. Then move your whole arm keeping your elbow straight and
your shoulders down while drawing the alphabet. The last exercise is arm raises. With
this exercise we’re working on the part of the rotator cuff that lifts the arm. Stand with good posture, then lift your arms slightly in front of you keeping
your arms straight. Focus on keeping your chest lifted and your shoulder blades
retracted. Once you feel confident with this
exercise, you may also add a light weight So if you guys do these five exercises
after every workout, it will help to strengthen and stabilize your shoulders
and help you to have a long and healthy career. So thank you so much for watching, please subscribe to me on Youtube, and visit my website for more swimming tips.
Thanks so much and I’ll see you all soon.

How to Fill Out the FAFSA

How to Fill Out the FAFSA


The Free Application for
Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is the application for grants,
loans, and work-study funds provided by
the federal government. It is also used by many
states and schools for their financial aid programs. For the fastest
and easiest way to apply, visit our official website,
fafsa.gov. The FAFSA is available
in English and Spanish. As you fill it out online you’ll
be able to automatically skip questions that don’t pertain
to you, check out your status immediately,
and get online help. It takes most people less
than 30 minutes to complete the application. You’ll need a
few things when you fill it out, so get ready by gathering your Social Security number, your Permanent Resident Card
if you have one, any W-2 forms or records
of money you earned for the previous year,
and your tax records. By the way, a nice time-saving
feature of the FAFSA is that many people are eligible
to automatically transfer their tax data from the IRS
into the FAFSA. So keep an eye out
while you’re applying, in case you’re
offered that option. If you have any questions about
what information to gather, there is a complete list of
documents that you will need at fafsa.gov. Before you begin the process
of filling out the FAFSA, you should create a user name
and password called an FSA ID that will act as your
electronic signature. You’ll only need to create an
FSA ID once; and you can use it to renew your FAFSA
each year that you apply. Your parents will need
an FSA ID too if they have to provide any information. So now you’re ready
to begin filling out the FAFSA to apply for financial aid. There are three groups
of questions that include personal information,
such as your name, address, and marital status; financial information,
such as your income; and any parent information
that is required. If you get hung up or confused
about a question, the “Help and Hints” box
on the right-hand side of the application can help with
each question as you move along. Also, look for the online chat
feature under “Help” if you would like assistance from
a knowledgeable agent. Because colleges and career
schools use the FAFSA to provide financial aid, you can list
up to 10 schools that you are interested in attending. You should list all of
the schools that you are considering, even if you haven’t
been accepted or applied yet. If you have more than 10 schools
in mind, you can submit your FAFSA with 10 schools and then
replace some of those schools with other schools later. When you finish filling out
the FAFSA, use your FSA ID to sign the form. If you are required to submit
parent information on your FAFSA, a parent will need to
sign the application with his or her own FSA ID as well. If you have any questions
or need more information, please visit StudentAid.gov.

treating your arthritis pain… You’ve likely tried a bucket-load of arthritis
pain treatments… And you’re sick of being told there’s
no quick cure… But listen – It’s not your fault! You’ve
simply been sold the old, conventional ways of Western medicine, of ‘Big Pharma’… You’ve only been taught to treat the symptoms
– not treat the cause – right?… So naturally, if you want a breakthrough,
you must change something, do something different – yes? Well – my mission is simply to help you change
the way you think… And when you change the way you think, you’ll
change the results you get – which is what you’re looking for – isn’t it? Look – this simple 2-minute technique works
in a totally different way… Heal the hidden emotional cause – and like
millions of regular folks around the world, you too can feel the rapid relief you’re
hoping for… So why on earth has nobody told you about
this – until now? See – here’s the deal…
By any traditional standards, this is a crazy cure for sure – for three very good reasons…
It sounds crazy… It looks crazy… And here’s the kicker – it works like crazy too…
Which is why they’re calling it A Crazy Cure… So even though it’s being proved, every
day, by people just like you… Because it challenges those conventional beliefs… Nobody else will know if you’re open-minded
enough to even give it a go… But look – these famous Doctors highly recommend
it… Deepak Chopra, MD says it -“Offers great healing
benefits.” Dr. Oz calls it – “The next big frontier
in medicine!” And Dr. Joe Mercola confirms it as – “A
major component of our treatment program.” So hand’s up who’s open-minded – and ready
for something NEW? … 3-Step EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)
– or ‘Tapping’… A unique new combination of modern psychology
and the ancient Oriental healing art of acupressure… (That’s like acupuncture – without the
needles!) The combined effect is like re-booting your
body… Tapping points on your face and body with

subconscious mind… To clear your blocked energy channels, or
meridians… And ZAP the hidden emotional cause of your

It flat out works… And it’s not just for any one problem – so
you can try it on everything… Because, believe it or not, those negative
emotions we all experience every day… Like Stress, Unworthiness, Anger, Anxiety,
Frustration, Grief, Guilt, Blame, Shame, Bitterness, Resentment…
Are, in fact, your inner guidance system… Powerful indicators of limiting beliefs, definitions
or opinions of yourself, picked up throughout your life…
Hidden by your subconscious mind – and stuck in your body’s energy system…
Yes – those hidden, limiting beliefs are the proven root cause of your suffering…
Of all your health, wealth or relationship problems – and more…
Skeptical? I can understand that. Even the most open-minded people may be – until they
try this – and prove it for themselves! Listen – Chances are good that in a matter
of minutes, you’ll begin to feel relief faster than you ever dreamed possible… You see, ‘emotionally simple’ problems,
such as Aches, Pains, Anxieties, Allergies, Food Cravings, Phobias… Often fade away completely with the use of
Step 1 alone – sometimes, almost miraculously, with a single 2-minute session… Most likely, though, with a number of repetitions… So let’s find some relief right now, shall
we?… It’s time to dive in and test this Crazy
Cure for yourself… First though – the required legal disclaimer… IMPORTANT
3-Step EFT is a complementary therapy. It should not should be regarded as a medical
claim. For medical advice, you should consult a qualified health professional, and the techniques
described must not be used as a substitute for any treatment they recommend. In using
this information, you are responsible for your own actions. So now, pick a ‘simple’ problem to try
it on… Any ache or pain in your body, a feeling of
anxiety about a specific event, a food craving, simple allergy or phobia… Got one? OK. To help you appreciate your progress,
rate the current intensity of that problem, on a scale of zero to ten… Ten being the most intense possible, zero
being no more problem at all – which of course, is what we’re aiming for… My brief demonstration shows you how and where
to tap… Then you just follow-along to Step 1 – ‘Tap
The Problem’… So let’s go… Hello! And welcome to 3-Step EFT – A Crazy
Cure. In this short video presentation
I’m going to show you the tapping points that you need to use
in the Step-1 tap-along video. There’s 8 of them
and the first is on the side of the hand it’s the base of the palm
the fleshy part of the hand, often known as the karate chop point
where you would karate chop a piece of wood! So taking the
fingers of the other hand, 1,2, 3 even 4 – whatever feels comfortable to you
as with all the tapping points, just tap gently – whatever feels comfortable to you
the next point is the top of the head – right on
the crown just tapping gently, and then you move down
to the eyebrow point which is between the two eyebrows – right in the middle there…
Next is the side of the eye – on the bone parallel with the eye there, and then
underneath the eye – the under the eye point –
on the bone just there. Next is the collarbone point – you have two collar
bones topping on either side – right there…
Then moving down to the breastbone point The breastbone runs down the body and at
the base there’s little indentation which is known in acupressure as the Sea
of Tranquility so you just tap gently on there… Then finally
we have the Fingertips Point. The meridians in the body
run down to the end of the fingertips, so you
put your fingers together with your thumb underneath, encircle it
with your other hand and squeeze gently on the fingertips.
Whilst you’re doing that you take a deep breath – in and out.
And that’s it… those are the simple tapping points you need
to use for the Step-1 Video. Ok. Now you know the 8 simple tapping points,
bring your problem to mind… Create a simple phrase for your specific symptom,
to fill in the blanks as you tap-along to Step 1 – for example… “I have this splitting headache”, “I
have this lower back pain”, “I feel anxious about my test”, “I have this chocolate
craving”, “I have this fear of spiders”, “I have these itchy eyes”… Now, check the intensity again, from zero
to ten… Done that? Great. Now relax, and tap-along
with me… Speak the words out loud, and fill in the
blanks for your specific problem… Let’s tap… 3-Step EFT Step 1 – Tap The Problem.
First – Rate the intensity of your problem or negative emotion from zero to ten. Now
tap… SH: “Even though [problem/emotion], I know,
inside, that I’m OK…” SH: “Even though [problem/emotion], I know,
inside, that I’m OK…” SH: “Even though [problem/emotion], I know,
inside, that I’m OK…” SH: “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank
you, I love you…” FT: Breathe and feel relief… “RELIEF!”
TH: “Letting go of [problem/emotion]…” EB: “It’s OK to let go of [problem/emotion]…”
SE: “It’s safe to let go of [problem/emotion]…” UE: “Please let go of [problem/emotion]…”
CB: “Please let go of [problem/emotion]…” BB: “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank
you, I love you…” FT: Breathe and release… “RELEASE!”
SH: “I now prefer to feel aligned, inspired and peaceful inside…”
SH: “I now prefer to feel aligned, inspired and peaceful inside…”
SH: “I now prefer to feel aligned, inspired and peaceful inside…”
SH: “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you…”
FT: Breathe and feel peace… “PEACE!” Well Done! Now rate the intensity again – on
that same 0-10 scale. Did you feel some relief already? I do hope so… Did you find yourself yawning – or even
giggling? That’s your energy shifting… Although ‘emotionally simple’ problems
often fade away quickly as you tap, sometimes they take a few sessions to clear completely… So don’t give up – take a break, drink
a glass of water… Then continue – tap along again, as often
as you need… You can join me, free, at ACrazyCure.com… You’ll receive powerful hints and tips to

Dog First Aid : How to Care for a Dog’s Torn Toe Nail

Dog First Aid : How to Care for a Dog’s Torn Toe Nail


So I am going to demonstrate for you how you
would bandage a torn toenail from a dog. We are working with Ty here and he has torn his
right dewclaw. Dewclaw is the nail that is upside on the leg and he has torn that completely
off. So first thing that we want to do is you can see that the hair around the dewclaw
is a little bit matted and the first thing we need to do is clean that area up. We need
to brush that hair out. Now you can shave the area if you want to. I am trying to save
the coat so I am just going to brush this area out. It is going to tender and sore so
I am being very careful to hold the hair away from the skin so I don’t hit the skin with
the brush
and it is actually matted like this because he has been licking it. Ty stop. I am going
to expose the area. Put your head down. Okay, put your head down. Okay you can see that
it is a little bit red and raw here, the area that he has been licking; the area around
the dewclaw that is missing and in fact I will scissor the hair away from this area;
make it a little bit easier to work. Okay he is very obvious sensitive in this area
so I am going to work carefully.
So this is the dewclaw here. It is a little bit swollen. The dewclaw itself is actually
missing. We are going to clean this area out here. I am going go use some Betadyne from
my first aid kit; some Betadyne and cotton. If you can leave a wound like this open for
the air to heal, that is always better but if the dog is worrying it, licking it and
causing it to swell up like this then we really do need to close it off. Before we close it
off though, I want to clean it out.

How to Make a First Aid Kit : Electrolyte to Include in Your First Aid Kit

How to Make a First Aid Kit : Electrolyte to Include in Your First Aid Kit


For certain trips for example if you’re going
into the dessert for a hiking up in the mountains, in the dessert, if your going for long long
camping trips in areas where it’s very humid or hot and you are doing a lot of sweating
or even if you’re just doing some exercise that causes you a lot of sweating and loosing
a lot of fluid then you want to replenish your electrolytes, that’s your sodium, your
potassium, your glucose in your body to prevent any dehydration. So, if you can get hold of
these packages or anything that this is, for example, is called oral rehydration salts
that would be very good to include into your kit. I will show you how to use this but you
can also get this in tablet form, too. So, basically tablet form is a compressed form
of the loose powder and this is the loose powder form. And, in this package it contains
sodium chloride, which is the chemical name for salt, potassium chloride, and glucose.
So,here it says, directions: How to Use. Very simple, it says dissolve in 1 liter drinking
water. But, for example, sometimes kids don’t like to drink things that taste icky, so you
can also put it in orange juice, any kind of juice, fruit juice, and let it dissolve
in there and you really wouldn’t tast it at all. So, it’s, the kids are more inclined
to drink it. But, anyway here, it’s very simple, I’ll show you. You just get a liter of water,
but here we just got a sample, a cup of water, and of course this is when a pair of scissors
comes in handy because it you don’t have a pair of scissors I guess you’ll have to resort
to using your teeth. But, which I am going to do but I don’t have strong teeth. So, if
we, if we, if we can find a pair of scissors, which we should have, oh, here it is, so here
see, pair of scissors, I told you is very important item. If you don’t have strong teeth
like me so, very easy, open it up, and here we go. We will then just pour into the water
and give it a stir and this is when if you have a depressor if you don’t have any sort
of like catheter, you can always improvise, that’s why it’s always good if you can get
one of these tongue depressors in your kit because you can always use it as a stirer.
See, so these things in the kit, these items, you can improvise and use them, it’s like
survival techniques so here we go, this is my stirer and let it dissolve and I’m going
to taste it. See what it tastes like. I haven’t tried this brand, let’s see. See what it tastes
like, it’s better to have ice.
Yes, it’s better to put into orange juice or something that’s sweet because it’s like
drinking a pot of salt. But, it’s good for you though when you’re dehydrated. You don’t
want to end up in the ER, right, so, alright, there we go. Rehydration.
