THE TRUTH ABOUT HEARTBURN

heartburn

Too much acid in the stomach which frequently travels up the esophagus and sometimes enters the throat is a sign of heartburn or acid reflux. To reduce it don’t eat spicy foods or foods which cause it that you are aware of. Monitor what you eat and make a connection between what you eat and the heartburn.

Sometimes heartburn is caused by lying down after a meal or spending too much time in bed after a meal. Wait at least three or two hours before lying down if you find that you get heartburn for that reason.

Sometimes drinking too much beer of the wrong kind and too much acidic orange juice can also be the cause of mild heartburn so even monitor what you drink and try to make connections between the drink and heartburn.

As long as you don’t use it frequently you can try neutralizing stomach acid with a little baking soda or bicarbonate mixed with water to quickly reduce the amount of acid in your stomach. Sometimes chewing gum with bicarbonate in it may reduce mild heartburn symptoms by neutralizing some acid. Using anti acid medications too frequently will cause your stomach to become more acidic and it doesn’t really cure the cause which is eating the wrong foods or eating too much which generates too much acid in your stomach.

Most heartburn can be cured by avoiding the wrong foods, not lying down after a meal, and sometimes just loosening a belt which causes stomach pressure.

Some feel that there is a connection between much stress or traumatic incidents and heartburn. However, the amount of acid in the stomach has not been shown to increase under stress scientifically so it may be a psychological myth that stress causes heartburn.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SHAME

shame-on-you1

Shame: n. sensing displeasure caused by guilt and/or unworthiness and/or disrepute and/or powerlessness to achieve a goal(s)

 

Shame can be very intense embarrassment but it is also something felt by moral humans when they do something immoral or criminal and feel some remorse or have a wish that they had never done the immoral or criminal action.

 

Some humans do immoral and criminal actions and don’t feel shame and some do very embarrassing things and don’t feel shame either. Humans who have an awareness of what is right and wrong and firmly believe are those who experience shame when they do something which they feel is wrong.

 

Finally dependable humans who promise to do things or to do things on time will frequently feel shame if they do not fulfill those goals the way that they promised.

THE TRUTH ABOUT TEACHING

teaching

Teach: v. to communicate knowledge and/or skills and/or behavior to another

One on one teaching is the most effective form of teaching in many cases. Teaching to a classroom of students with slow, in between, and fast learners is very inefficient where you bore the fast students and lose the slow students trying to teach to the majority in between students.

In poor neighborhoods absence of discipline, unmotivating dysfunctional families, downward peer pressure, and disrespect of the teachers are all further reasons why traditional classroom teaching fails.

A teacher can try to teach many things to a student but unfortunately experience is sometimes the best teacher when it comes to human relationships and life experiences on the job and elsewhere.

Teachers in poor neighborhoods are plagued with discipline problems and students not willing to learn primarily because of a dysfunctional family life and poor role models who don’t encourage moral, industrious, and achievement oriented behavior.

Most teachers are not paid well and the reason is not obvious to most. Most of them are doing a mediocre job of teaching with mediocre results and deserve mediocre pay.

Quality teachers are rare because poor salaries discourage competence and even good competent teachers feel the frustration of teaching 30 students at a time with a wide range of learning speeds and frequently leave the profession for better more rewarding opportunities elsewhere.

There is some hope that individualized interactive audio visual computer education which is adjusted to your pace of learning may save students from mediocre teaching but only time will tell how speedily it will replace the armies of mediocre human teachers worldwide.
