Coconut Oil Is An Effective Treatment For Candida Yeast Infections

Coconut oil was found to be effective in killing some forms of Candida, which causes candidiasis in humans during a study performed at the University College Hospital in Ibadan, Nigeria. This study was later published in the Journal of Medical Food. For those that suffer with candida, Coconut oil is an anti-fungal by nature, which means it is a yeast-fighter as well. The yeast on the inside is fought by coconut oil and when eaten it relieves these symptoms on the skin as well. It is a natural enhancer of the immune system since it is both anti-bacterial and anti-viral. The use of Caprylic acid for candida has been done for years and it is one of the medium chain fatty acids that are found in coconut oil. Capric acid and lauric acid, the same as what is found in mother's milk, are both effective as a long-term cure for candida. They work together with the caprylic acid to achieve the destruction of the yeast. Coconut oil takes care of a variety of candida symptoms.Symptoms of Candida*vaginal yeast infection an...

The Nuts and Bolts on Torque Wrenches

A wrench that is used to set the torque of a fastening such as a nut or bolt to a great degree of precision is called a torque wrench. It is actually a socket wrench that comes with special internal mechanisms and is of great use where you need to be absolutely sure about the tightness of the screws and the bolts. You can measure how much torque is applied so that you are sure that the tightness is up to the specifications. So, you can ensure that there is proper loading and tension of all the parts. So indirectly, it is measuring bolt tension. However, thanks to the friction between the mating hole and the fastener, this technique does suffer from inaccuracy sometimes. So it is better to measure the bolt tension or the bolt stretch and very often torque is the only measurement that is possible and accurate. Let's take a look at what it looks like. The simplest one is a long lever arm that runs between the handle and the wrench head and is made of a material which bends elastically under the applied torque. T...

Wicker Patio Furniture: A Timeless Choice

The origins of wicker furniture can be traced all the way back to the Egyptian Empire where furniture was made from the woven reeds and swamp grasses that grew along the Nile. While not one is sure Cleopatra ever lounged around on wicker patio furniture - or even had a patio for that matter - many homes enjoyed the timeless beauty of wicker patio furniture. The actual term wicker is something of a misnomer. While many people associate wicker patio furniture with rattan, the traditional material this type of furniture is made from, the word actually refers to the weave itself. Wicker furniture can be made of out virtually any material that can be woven from natural materials like rattan and bamboo to plastics. If you're lucky enough to choose rattan for your wicker patio furniture, you'll be overjoyed with its beauty, quality and durability. Rattan is a pretty amazing material that is strong and resilient.

5 Points to Consider When Selecting Modular Office Furniture

Modular office furniture is an interesting development in modern business. I am not sure exactly how long it has been around, but my guess is that the first modular office furniture was seen in the form of windowless cubicles in about the 1960's or 1970's. Today you can still find these boring cubbies in many places, but many businesses are replacing the dull, gray, utilitarian cubicle with fashionable, yet simple and functional, modern modular office furniture. The idea behind modular office furniture is that there are many interchangeable pieces that can be fitted together in various configurations that suits your business needs. The individual, smaller pieces include, but are not limited to: desks, filing cabinets, hutches, book shelves, overhead storage shelves and keyboard trays. The main advantage to these individual standardized pieces is that you can combine them to suit your needs, so fully customizable office furniture for a reasonable price. If purchased smartly from the beginning, a growing busi...

Is Vegetable Oil A Workable Selection As a Substitute For Diesel

Did you possibly think that vegetable oil could be used to fuel your car? Did you ever before expect to see gas prices to go above $4 a gallon? There was a period in time when we switched to diesel fuel because it was cheaper, but now it costs more than regular gas. Although people are concerned about the shortage of oil, there are no mandatory steps to cut back on the amount we use. There are no efforts by the car companies to stop making big, gas sucking cars. However, if fuel additives truly work, then why aren't they added to all gasoline. It is a mystery as to the reasons these fuel additives are permitted to be sold.In the event that vegetable oil functions to run a vehicle, then why is it not really a better option than it is? Any diesel car can utilize either diseal or vegetable oil for fuel. Is there a reasons why drivers are not switching? It seems like it might be a simple solution, but what is involved in making vegetable oil. At the moment, Americans use up about 140 billion gallons of gas while ...
