Listen to your body when it signals something’s wrong

Sometimes the simpliest things are the hardest to figure out. For example, always keep in mind that whenever you have pain in your stomach and your doctor, after examining you, doesn’t feel it is anything serious, you should be aware that anytime you eat something (such as fruits, nuts, etc.) that your stomach produces acid that could cause you to have pain. So it is wise to limit your eating to regular eating times.

My relative who is having problems with fluid retention recently had some pain in her feet. She started to put capsaicin cream on her feet to relieve the pain and her feet started to swell. I told her that it may be the capsaicin that was causing the swelling because capsaicin will cause the blood flow to her feet to increase. And since she already has edema this added blood supply to her feet will only cause the edema to increase.

Also, any time you put an insert into your shoe you have to be careful. Because these inserts could slightly change the position of the bones in your knees and hips.

If you have a problem and you can’t figure an answer to this problem, it is a good idea to go for a short walk and many times the answer will come to you.

You should always consult with your doctor before you do anything concerning your health.

Writer wants answers to queries about CityVest

As a taxpayer in Luzerne County I would like to have answers to some questions.

Why did CityVest disband if its purpose was to give aid to worthy projects? How many members did the nonprofit have? Because CityVest disbanded, are its members supposed to just walk away from their responsibility to make known how the six million dollars was spent? Is this just another debacle of government not keeping track of our tax dollars? Regarding the civil suit against Controller Walter Griffith by CityVest, it appears to be a diversion on tactic to transfer suspicion and guilt away from the perpetrator regarding the destruction of the Hotel Sterling. Why should an elected officer, Walter Griffith, be chastised for doing his job to protect and make known to the taxpayers when something is not right in government?

Unfortunately, Pennsylvania is in arrears in updated laws that protect the taxpayers’ money under surveillance even if wiretapping is necessary to acquire evidence to catch a thief or liar.
