Have You Ever Wondered Where Chickens Come From??
When a hen ovulates, the result is a yolk, which can be fertilized internally by sperm from a rooster. The yolk, whether it’s fertilized or not, is then covered by egg white and then eggshell before the egg is laid. Stages of chicken development after laying:
Day 3: Nose, legs and wings begin to form
Day 6: Beak begins to form
Day 10: Beak begins to harden
Day 15: Scales, claws and beak getting ready to break the shell
Day 18: Yolk will enter the body cavity of the developing chick
Day 21: Chick hatches!!
…and word to the wise: The eggs we buy in the grocery store are not fertilized, so although a fertilized egg may pass through the cracks once in a very long while, the usual grocery store egg will not develop a chick…..
Around the holidays we tend to indulge and sometimes it’s nice to give your liver a little cleanse. This is a super easy 3 day cleanse you can do from home. You con’t need anything fancy to do it. If you don’t have a juicer you can buy fresh organic apple juice from your local market or juice bar to use.
Easy Liver Cleanse
1 C fresh apple juice(approximately 3 apples)
1 TBSP olive oil
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 a lemon juiced
1. This should be the first thing you drink in the morning
2. Mix thoroughly and drink. In about an hour your liver should release toxins. Drink plenty of water. Eat preferable 2 hours after you drink but you can eat after you detox if you need.
3. Repeat for 3 days
You guys know I work in Urgent Care, right? So my day is full of the bread-and-butter complaints: sore throat, cough, ear ache, rash, it burns when I pee — and when the day is full of “the usual suspects,” it can be tempting to downplay (or outright IGNORE) any symptoms which don’t fit with the Top 5 diagnoses.
I’ve seen Urgent Care colleagues and staff completely ignore Really Important Symptoms because it would mean that Something Really Important (i.e. “a diagnosis that will require more than a physical exam to establish”) might be going on, and ain’t nobody got time for Something Really Important in the Urgent Care — we’ve got viruses to treat here, for pete’s sake!
But I strive to keep my brain turned on with every case — due to a combination of good training + a mild-moderate case of OCD — and about 2 months ago, that habit really paid off.
