Alternative Medicine Is A Thing That More Men And Women Want To Know About

Alternative medicine is a thing that more and more folks are beginning to look into, but you will find loads of information on the topic and it can be rather puzzling. Another thing you will find that even though more folks are looking into alternative medicine there are other individuals who have not ever worried about just what they put in their bodies. Over the last few years I have been studying alternative medicines and the positive results that they can have your all around health, and this is something that I believed that more people should know about.

Just so you know, alternative medicines are one thing that can help you deal with different health conditions that you may suffer from with out having to take drugs. Individuals have begun to be more worried lately with the things that they are placing into their bodies, and so alternative medicine has become considerably popular among health-conscious individuals these days.

Recently I have been carrying out a lot of research for articles that deal with alternative medicine and I considered that more people should be mindful of what this is. It is also something that I have been personally interested in, as I never liked taking any types of drugs. A primary reason for this is simply because of all of the negative side effects you find out about with all sorts of prescription drugs. This is also something that more men and women should be aware of as I am confident you have seen drug commercials on TV and all the side effects at the end of the particular commercials. What you need to ask yourself is why would you take a drug which is going to result in additional problems and wind up causing you to take more drugs? And this simply will go on and on.

This of course, is one of the principal reasons that more and more folks are looking into alternative medicine as an option. They are people who are in search of new and healthier ways to treat their symptoms and who are convinced that the more natural something is, the better it is for their body and their over all health. So let me ask you a question, just what makes more sense, taking harmful chemical substances such as prescription drugs or using all natural remedies that have no negative side effects.

There is much too much to say about alternative medicine here, but I merely wanted to point out that there are alternatives to taking all those prescription drugs that cause all sorts of side effects. As with other things in your life you will notice that you get to make the choice on how best you feel you can take care of your body. After you look at the benefits of alternative medicine to prescription drugs, you just have to assess if it is a good choice for you. The information that we supplied here may not be enough for you to select alternative medicine, but you can get loads more information online if you are interested.

Don’t Get Fooled Read the Reviews for the Best Acne Cleansers Around.

It seems like every time I sit down to watch TV there are at the very least 10 different acne commercials that pop up within an hour. This one is promising you this and this one has a celebrity saying it works and this one over her is saying use a cleanser for your exact skin type. It can get quite overwhelming. I could only imagine the people out there, especially the teenagers, who have acne and are so embarrassed of it watching these commercials believing that there is hope. So, in my scenario, these people use the acne cleansers to only find out they have been had. How devastating is that. So for all of you people out there that have been ripped off by a brightly spotlighted acne cleanser company, I have some information for you. The only way to be sure you are using the best cleanser for you is to read the reviews and know your ingredients.

Reading the reviews: cleanser reviews, acne treatment reviews, or anything else you can thing will give you a ton of information that you can use to make your decision. You should be able to find out ingredients that will work for your skin, and the general consensus from consumers as to what these products are capable of and how they are perceived. Review sites are a savvy shoppers guide to finding the best cleansers or creams out on the market. For example; the acne products I have been using goes by the name Dermajuv and this is how I found out about them. I went online searching for help to fight acne and came across Dermajuv. From there I kept seeing good review after good review, plus I loved the ingredients they used, and decided to give it a go. I have been using it ever since. This just goes to show what a good avenue review sites can be.

Even though reading the review sites is a huge part of finding the right acne cleanser of cream for your face, the ingredients are what you should focus most of your time on. Due to the fact that acne is pretty much a severe irritating breakout present on your face, you should take extra precaution not to use a cleanser with ingredients that will irritate your skin further. Your skin has already been through enough, it needs treatment not torture.

So to find these ingredients in your acne cleanser you can either look to the review sites or the company’s direct website or anywhere else you can think of for information. If we want to continue with the Dermajuv example; the Dermajuv cleanser that I use for acne is called the Detoxifying Cleanser. The active ingredient for acne included in Dermajuv’s cleanser is called Resveratrol. This ingredient has been described as Benzoyl Peroxide without the side effects. So what Resveratrol does is kill the bacteria that cause acne to happen while not drying or irritating your skin further. Other ingredients included in Dermajuv’s Detoxifying Cleanser are Glycolic Acid and Tangerine Oil. Both of these ingredients aid in the killing of bacteria while exfoliating your skin allowing new skin cells to come forth. Plus, my favorite part of the ingredients, they all come from a natural base so no chemicals are involved to irritate or have a reaction with the skin. So after visiting the cleanser review sites for acne and finding a cleanser that you like, dive deeper in and learn about those ingredients. It will make your choice a lot more enjoyable if you do.

Read reviews, know your ingredients, and do not get fooled by the glitz and glamour of a TV commercial with your favorite celebrity. Take my experience with Dermajuv’s cleanser and follow the steps I have taken to clear up my acne. Use your own intelligence and start the search for the best acne cleanser in your opinion. Believe me; you will be closer to find a great product doing it this way than believing a commercial.

Ashlyn Martin has worked in the dermatology profession, as well as starting off as a skin care professional in retail markets. Having vast knowledge of the skin care industry, she has decide to give advice on such topics as acne and the scars they produce and giving tips on some of the best companies and products like looking at the reviews. For example; with the company Dermajuv you would use Dermajuv cleanser reviews or any other company of interest.

Offshore Scams

We do not do such seminars and suggest you do not attend any such seminars if the subject matter has anything to do with offshore asset protection, offshore trusts, offshore banking, offshore foundations, or anything offshore financial related.

In Panama jokes are often made about these seminars since a lot of them take place in Panama. You do not know who the other people are attending these seminars and it is common to see people filming the attendees with digital cameras and communicating with each other using microphones up their shirt sleeves. Are these people seminar security people, hotel security or something else, we do not know? For all we know someone could be planning to blackmail or kidnap seminar attendees. Kidnapping and blackmail are rare occurrences in Panama but a lot of these seminars take place in Mexico and other hi-risk countries. Think we are kidding, think again. Do you know why you see all these Nigerian financial scams in your email? Because they work, thats why.

We would not suggest to our clients that they attend any of these seminars. The price for the seminars are enough to hire a asset protection law firm and have them do your formations as well and then have some left over for a new plasma screen TV. The other attendees will often be shills trying to draw you into some phony business deal which is going to be a scam. The con man impersonates being a seminar attendee so you think hey this guy spent $7500.00 to come here, he must be rich while he is nothing more than a con man splitting with the house (the house is the seminar promoters).

These seminars have people touting returns on their managed investment accounts of over 100% per year. If the guy is so good why does he need to attend these seminars and who is doing the trading while he is running around doing seminars several times a year as in what if the market does a major shift while he is at a seminar, see what I mean.

The prices charged for services like corporations are usually three to five times higher than what they should be. Often times what is being touted are crazy trust related scams or third party banking scams that usually have a bad ending. The seminar producers, the speakers and sellers of goods and services are not attorneys, there is no attorney client privilege and these seminar attendees who purchase from them trust these people with all the pieces of their financial life all based on the credibility of giving a seminar. Any promoter with an extensive criminal record can hire a hotel, print flyers, buy mailing lists, send out brochures, charge $5000 or more for a week and give a seminar. These seminars have a big hype with testimonies, claims, etc. all in a very controlled atmosphere, they control your atmosphere. Here is this guy up on a stage speaking to hundreds of people he or she must know what they are talking about, he sells tapes, book etc. so he has to be great. Lawyers that are good and effective at asset protection dont have the time to go around doing seminars. They have ways of protecting clients assets that they are not going to get on a stage and broadcast to the seminar audience or publish in a book, newsletter, etc.

Most seminar producers publish a newsletter to get credibility and a newsletter does not make you an expert. Anyone with a computer can write a newsletter. Folks these are highly skilled marketing people who know how to promote seminars, sell products and services. Most of what they sell is poorly put together untested asset protection scam- structures designed to get you to spend large amounts of money. These structures are usually based in a jurisdiction that used to be worthy of asset protection before 9/11 and the attendees do not know the jurisdiction passed new laws ruining their older privacy and secrecy laws. Their primary motive is getting attendees to pay big bucks to attend and buy things from the speakers who kick back to them. Over the years we have heard of many big seminar promoters getting jailed in different countries for a variety of offenses with fraud being a common thread. Usually it is only a matter of time until they have an encounter with law enforcement in some country. To hook the people into attending their seminars they tout big claims which of course can not be substantiated. If it is too good to be true, its not true.

So save your seminar money and retain a good asset protection law firm that is going to protect your assets more effectively and lawfully. Someday if trouble comes knocking on your door who you going to call the seminar promoter or a competent law firm in the jurisdiction where your assets are? We rest our case.

Nigerian Scams

We get a number of phone calls and emails from people who are stating they are going to come into a large amount of money and wish the money to be sent offshore and thus wish to set up offshore structures and bank accounts. When you deal with offshore asset protection clients long enough you get to know what a “real” client sounds like. You can tell by the nature of their concerns, the questions they ask, the sophistication level, their demeanor etc. what a so called “real” client sounds like. These people never sound like a “real” client. You would be amazed at the amount of clients that contact us talking about an inheritance from a dead relative. I ask them if the situation has anything to do with Nigeria and of course it does. There is always a Nigerian link in there somewhere. These people are so sold on the scam half the time we can not convince them they are being scammed. In their mind they have locked in the $25,000,000 they are promised and will not let go. We tell them do not send these people any money at all, delete their emails, forget about it, etc. They dont let go. What they do not see is all the other people that have called us with the same or a similar story and never once did we ever hear from someone who received the money. These scammers have government documents, bank documents, photos of people they say are involved, all sorts of documentation, all forged and counterfeit but authentic looking.

The scam starts with an email or fax. Some plot is created like money needs to be gotten out of Nigeria or now we see South Africa popping up too. There might be a child that needs to be taken care of and you for some seemingly good reason have been selected to be entrusted with millions of dollars to take care of him or her. There may talk about oil contracts worth millions that are available. There might be millions left to you in a will and they will even know all about your deceased relative. They may try to get you into an illegal money laundering scheme, of course you cant launder non-existent funds. Then comes money requests to have funds released, bonds, taxes, bank release fees, bank charges, bribe fees, advance fees, pay liens or encumbrances, etc. They keep hitting the victim for money as long as they can the victim either stops cooperating or runs out of money.

What the victims do not realize is what is going on behind the scenes. Something like this is probably going on behind the scenes:

Picture say a three story office building. In this building are several departments. One is the email spam section. Here the spammers are pushing out as many millions of emails they can each day, this goes on round the clock never stopping. They also will be paying spammers around the world to push out spam for them as well. They may have a fax dept. where they are sending out faxes. They also will be paying fax spammers to send out faxes for them. They probably have a few people assigned to acquiring stolen credit card so they can pay for many of the things they need with stolen credit cards like ordering background investigations on you or your dead relative from a private detective on the internet so they can really use details and facts to make their story most believable. There is a documents section where they generate all the counterfeit documents they send out. Then there is the actual phone room where the so called “barrister” or “banker” or “industrialist” or “fake government official” sits plying his fraud on the victims. These calls are monitored and sales managers walk around coaching the phone salesman as to how to improve their pitch. These calls may be played on a speaker in a room for new trainees to hear with a teacher pointing out the methodology behind the phone call. They probably have sales contests and bonuses. Now when they get a victim to send money, the case will normally go to a higher level con man. They figure they now have a live wire so let the real seasoned pros milk all they can out of them. This is just a depiction of how we see things, we have no factual information .but this should give you an idea of the sophistication level involved. Some say the Nigerian Scam is the third largest industry in Nigeria. Some also say the government of Nigeria has merged with the scammers into a sort of coalition which means there is practically no chance of ever getting your money back from them and probably precious little chance of them ever getting arrested for these scams.

As a closing thought these Nigerian Scammers with frequency try to work their scams on our law firm. They will call saying they are a prospective client and have a large sum like $30,000,000 tied up in some deal in some country, usually there is a daisy chain of banks and countries involved. At some point we start to hear about a substantial fee that is required to get the funds released and they need a short term loan to get the funds released and of course this is when we break off the communication.
Forum Scams

This is how this popular scam works:

1. The scammer locates some forums that are relevant to the business you are trying to promote.

2. Next you enroll in the forum and post questions like hey I am looking for a good shoe store. I am thinking of buying from abc123shoes.com. Has anybody dealt with them.

3. You of course have several screen names on the forum and use another screen name to give your shoe store a reference by saying oh I bought from this other store and they were great. Dont buy from abc123shoes.com they are a scam operation. Of course no facts are given. To really embellish it a link is given to another forum where the scammer has posted similar negative postings to hurt the competitor and references this link to make it really look like the business being targeted for slander is a big scam when they reality is the forum poster and the business they are praising are the scammers. Wolf in sheep’s clothing trick. Oh I am your friend and I love to hang around in forums all day long giving out free advice, you can trust me look at how many great posts I have in this forum. This is commonly referred to as a confidence game, they get your confidence and then scam you. This is profound with alternative health care products and even takes place in the offshore financial sector.

4. To thicken it up more the scammer using additional screen names again posts positively for the business they are trying to promote making it out to be a popular product or service when it is anything but that.

5. There is a whole industry of professional forum posters who can be hired to go around the internet posting whatever you want on forums. They will have no reservation bad mouthing businesses or promoting junk products. These people are usually in third world countries and will do almost anything to make money.

Thus you see how deceitfully unscrupulous people can promote a scam business. The point of this is not to use forums as a source of references for the credibility of a business any business. Many forums are far from impartial in that the forum owners have businesses that the forums are indirectly used to promote. If the forum owner just provides a forum for people to post they are not really responsible for what is posted. So how hard is it for the forum owner to create a screen name and promote a product/service or bad mouth a competitor thus committing deniable slander.

Forums are not a reliable place to go for information about sourcing products or services. If you listen to the postings on forums you are going to get hurt.

Non Loop-able Lcd Enclosure For Prisons And Mental Health Units

With the improvement of outdoor digital signage and the introduction of the plasma TV into health care as well as correctional facilities, these fragile pieces of electronics have to be safeguarded from the hostile environment they are in.

Some customers think they can use a digital signage system for this and how unsuitable they are!

Consider the development?

A global producer of fortified LCD housings has built an anti ligature LCD enclosure or non loop-able LCD enclosures. The non loop-able LCD enclosure have been evolved through considerable input from psychiatric units to create and manufacture a solution that defends both the patient and the TV set.

These new LCD enclosures prevent harm to the lcd tv and any other connected gadgets in the housing, by preventing un-authorised access and preventing people tampering or stealing the devices. These are specially designed for medical centers and hospitals. The design of the unit was produced with input from many top experts in the mental health sector and this is the favorite solution, these housings now facilitate any LCD or plamsa screen to be deployed in to any mental health unit or psychiatric unit.

Non loop-able TV enclosure.

This is not your elementary flat panel lcd monitor enclosure used in a factory or out of doors for digital signage; this is a high security unit that attributes a sound solution that will withstand the most vicious of attacks from the most desperate of individuals.

This can be those who are on death row, or psychiatric individuals in mental health units who self harm, this product defends the devices and at the same time safeguards the patient from self harming.

Someone once told me, “any idiot can weld a metal box, but it is the exceptional components inside that make it more functional.” This is why an anti ligature LCD housing are diverse from any other outdoor television enclosure, some even have patents pending on their design and these units are installed in facilities such as correctional facilities and mental health units.

So what is the difference between an lcd enclosure and a non loop-able LCD enclosure?

The first big difference is that the solution is indoors where as digital signage or passenger information systems are deployed outdoors.

The next variation is that the leading non loop-able LCD enclosure solution is created from thicker material and is fitted with a much thicker viewing window that has a rear support frame for additional support, should anything such as a table be chucked at the lcd monitor.

The last major variation is that the locking mechanism on our anti ligature TV enclosure are not the conventional cam locks as fitted by some competition. The locks we use are high security locks and these are almost impossible to access without the key! Making access to the TV screen very difficult unless you have authority to do so.

Now thinking about all the above points, protecting a LCD screen is a vital peice of digital signage that is located outdoors, these housings have to provide weatherproof protection without them a standard LCD screen or even commercial screen (that is not build for outdoor use) will be expensive to repair if not protected.

The Eczema Skin Condition, Varieties and Signs

Nearly all individuals have heard of eczema, if just from TV and radio commercials, but what most do not know is there are many different types. It’s no overstatement to say that the number of eczema sufferers in the world is counted in the thousands and thousands. One thing that is important for successful treatment is having some comprehension of the symptoms. You will discover there are varying layers of severity with eczema, and that is also a aspect with treating it. If you believe you may have this condition, then you can do several things in relation to it. You can seek treating it by over the counter products, or you can see your physician for accurate diagnosis. A dermatologist would have the most expert knowledge of your condition.

One type of eczema that’s easy to classify is called contact dermatitis. It isn’t the most common form, but therapy is clear-cut. There are two distinctive kinds of contact eczema; allergic as well as irritant. The names are pretty self explanatory, however we will chat about them for clarity. Irritant eczema is just when something makes contact with your skin, a sort of chemical for example, and it produces an eczema type of rash. This might be from soaps, perfumes or familiar washing agents. Allergic eczema produces comparable symptoms but is due to items such as pollens, dust mites or reactions from pet hair and dander.

Atopic eczema is the kind of eczema most frequently observed. It occurs almost exclusively in children four years old and under. The most usual symptom is a rash containing dry, itchy skin. Of course a youngster that young will naturally scratch the itchy area and make it worse. You may also detect clear characteristics of swelling where the rash is visible. Always take your kid to the pediatrician to identify the correct diagnosis and the most effective treatment.

“Varicose eczema” is the name given to a skin condition that can effect older people. Anybody who has this sort of eczema most likely sees dark patches of skin that itch and appear red and swollen. This mainly results from poor blood circulation in the lower legs. Furthermore, this insufficient flow may lead to thrombosis, or varicose veins, due to the extra fluid build up. “Static eczema” and “gravitational eczema” are other names for this kind of disorder. In the most horrible cases there can be serious swelling and skin ulcers.

There are a number of other types of eczema, and the essential thing is to observe your situation. Much depends on the type and where it is happening as well as other variables. If you are unsure about what it going on with your skin, and suspect eczema, then of course the best thing is to pay a visit to your family doctor right away. As we’ve seen, there are more acute and less severe forms of eczema. To get an effectual treatment based on the accurate diagnosis, see your family doctor or health-care professional.

Acne Control Tips That Minimize Breakouts

If youre searching for acne control tips that can diminish acne breakouts with no acne medicine, medications, or seeing a skin care expert, then the following acne control tips may be the most important information you read today.

Heres why:

Ive recently learned that you can reduce breakouts by getting your body to rapidly digest the foods you eat.

Let me explain

If your body process foods at a snail’s pace, foods will start to rot and release toxins throughout your body. And once toxin level reach a high point, your body will start to eliminate it through your skin, causing your skin to breakout.

So what you need to do is make sure the foods you consumed dont stay in your system for more than 24 hours.

So how can you speed up the digestion process and prevent your body from releasing toxins through your skin?

Consider the following:

Eat in a relaxed and calm state dont eat in a hurry, watching TV, driving or eat while youre doing something else. This can arcs back your G.I. tract and cause incomplete digestion.

So in order for your body to digest foods completely, you must eat in a relax state by taking your time and eating your food slowly.

Dont drink fluids with meals Drinking any type of drinks with your meals will dilute your bodys digestive juice which are needed for breaking down and digesting food.

Although water is essential for detoxification, the only time I recommend drinking water or any type of fluid is between meals or when youre consuming something very dry (but only drink enough to help you swallow it).

Chew food thoroughly chew and break down the foods you eat to the smallest particles possible before swallowing. Otherwise chunks of undigested food will enter your colon putrefying and feeding Candida and other parasites which can lead to acne breakouts.

Allow food time to digest before exercising I recommend you wait at least one hour before starting any type of workout after consuming any meal.

This is simply because when you exercise your body directs blood away from your digestive organs and transfer it to your muscles. This will slow down or even stop digestion altogether. So just relax after you eat.

Avoid eating big meals for breakfast or dinner Your body goes through a cleansing, absorption, and assimilation cycle every day.

The cleansing phase occurs at night till morning. This is when your system clears out all the toxins that it accumulated from the day before.

The absorption phase starts from morning to afternoon. This is when your system absorbs the nutrients from the foods you consumed.

And finally the assimilating phase. It starts in the afternoon and goes on until evening. This is when your system assimilates the nutrients that your system absorbed. And take them to the cells and organs that they need to be.

Therefore, if you eat large meals in the morning time your body will stop cleansing and start digesting the food you just ate.

The same happens in the evening. Your system will stop assimilating nutrients to your cells and organs and start digesting.

Therefore, the only time you should or could eat large meals is in the afternoon. When your body is absorbing nutrients from the food you consume.

What happens if you do eat big meals for breakfast and dinner?

Your body will become chronically toxic, because your system did not have the time or energy to fully cleanse your body of toxins.

Which of course can result in more acne breakouts.

Keys To Success Good Mental Health

Success in business and life is about the journey. What is the journey? First of all it is about our health. Most of the time people focus on physical health and ignore or downplay their mental health.

To experience small business success and the life you desire you must be aware of the state of your mental health. Most of us know inspirational stories of people who succeeded against overwhelming odds.

Mental Health Keys

What was their key to success? There were a couple of things. First, they understood that the quality of their lives seldom exceeds their personal development.
Secondly, because they were involved in personal development, they were always doing something positive which encouraged good mental health. Their minds became a highly developed muscle that carried them past their physical limitations to success. Helen Keller is one that comes immediately to mind. She was deaf and blind. Dr. Stephen Hawking, the renowned physicist is another.

Mental Health vs. Physical Health

Now lets look at the other side. How many inspirational stories do you know of where someone succeeded and overcame great challenges yet had poor mental health and excellent physical health? I cant think of any at the moment.
It was once said that what the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve. Yes, your mental health is the key to growth and satisfaction.

How do you achieve good mental health? There are many ways. Some of the more obvious include associating with positive people, affirming ourselves with our self-talk in a positive manner, participating in things that bring us satisfaction and enjoyment and avoiding negative media.
You become what you think about most. What are you thinking about? All of us sail the same stormy seas of life. Whether you are a self-employed business owner, entrepreneur or solo professional the challenges of running a small business can create waves that can come crashing over us may, at times, seem insurmountable.

Physical health is important to success. Yet, if you dont have the mental health even if you are healthy physically, you will hold yourself back.

Mental HealthConceive Victory and See Yourself Winning
How do you sail through the huge waves that are trying to knock you off course? Begin with your mind.

Conceive your picture of success or victory. As a personal business coach I ask all my clients to get a clear picture of what success looks like for them not just for today but for five or ten years from now.

Get a clear picture in your mind of what success in the future will look like. Once the future is finished in your mind, what you need to do in the present becomes absolutely clear.

Start believing that you will achieve it. Small business growth and small business success as well as personal growth and success are engines that are run on the steam of belief.

Mental HealthSurround Yourself With Positive People

Another important point is that you must surround yourself with positive people. Also, positive self-talk to create an expectation of success is a must. And, watch good TV or read good books. Put up in your home or business pictures of what you want success and happiness to look like. Remember your mind is a muscle. It will work as well as what you feed it.

Now you are ready to achieve success. You have been working out your mind muscle and it is ready to take you to new places.

Heres the best part. Embrace your mental health. It will lift your self-esteem while creating a positive and very real expectation of success. Others will pick up on this. You will attract the right people. When you do, they will be able to lift you and help you to realize and accomplish your picture of success.

Good mental health is the key to happiness and success in business and life. Remember, what the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve. Conceive good things and believe they will come. Thats practicing good mental health.

My Anti-Cancer Lifestyle

An anti-cancer lifestyle is not a rigid set of rules to follow, but a safe space to be filled with your favorite ways of nourishing health and discouraging cancer. Since cancer thrives in a too-ordered situation, relax and let chaos give a hand now and then in the execution of your plan. I include all the following elements in my anti-cancer lifestyle. Were I to be diagnosed with cancer, I would continue to do these things in addition to any other remedies I might choose.

Stay in touch with my own daily and seasonal rhythms.

Sleep in total darkness or moonlight; get into the sun daily.

Eat one meal at the same time each day.

Have emotional outlets.

Choose friends who support me and my truth.

Have artistic outlets.

Receive lots of appreciation and approval (a.k.a. love).

Exercise one hour three times a week.

Get a massage once a month or more.

Do my yoga practice once a week or more.

Have sexual outlets.

Take a quiet time of beingness daily.

Make full use of all sources of joy available to me.

Eat a Mediterranean-style diet of mostly organically grown foods including daily use of cabbage family plants, raw and cooked greens, whole grains, beans, sunflower seeds, soy products, olive oil, garlic, seasonal fresh fruit, seaweed, yogurt and cheese, herbal infusions, herbal vinegars, and antioxidant seasonings. Plus, at least four times a month, seafood, nuts, mushrooms, dried fruit, and eggs; and, less than four times a month, meat, alcohol, white sugar, and coffee.
