By the way, you know those paintings with guys wearing these huge and elaborate wigs? Those wigs were usually covered with lice and nits. However, if you wanted to sport your own hair and were bald, the next best thing besides wigs was chicken poop. It was supposed to cure baldness. Just wait until you find out what they used as tampons, contraception, and dental hygiene! Check out these 25 gross hygiene practices you won’t believe were real.

Number 3: The surgeons and medical staff didn't have dirty hands cause they weren't washed per se but because it was often so that they used to have some practice or lectures on corpses, and not having gloves they would then go for an example to assist a child labor and touch a birth giving woman, transmitting her those dead body bacteria. Ignaz discovered that putting hands in antiseptic solution before such procedures lowers the death rates of women in puerperium from sepsis and he was also Austrian, not Hungarian, but lived in Austria Hungary. Just wanted to say that, great video.

Urine may be sterile as far as living organisms go, but I assure all, urine contains a LOT of what a human body does not need which can do harm. That's why the body is eliminating those toxins through urination. So people, stop peeing on each other already. lmao

my mother was born on a farm and they had indoor plumbing course. Is she was born in 1933 and they all had a chamber pot in each bedroom it was kept under the bed. I think of it as the first commode. They didn't dump it out the window though they took it to the bathroom all the Outhouse I think the bathroom and flushed it . also there was a standing rule that if you had to go poo then you didn't use the chamber pot. You could use it for urine and if you got sick. I don't think it's a horrible thing at all. I get sick quite a bit and I have to grab the living room trash can I would much rather have a chamber pot because sometimes I can't get to the bath as I am in a wheelchair.

My brother had horrible nose bleeds and they cauterized his nose. It doesn't hurt for a long and it's quick and within a couple of minutes the pain is gone. The pain that remains is from the vein as it is closed off and it will swell for a day or so but my brother didn't have any more nosebleeds and they were horrific! He even had them in his sleep. I'd take cauterization.

Urine is NOT sterile after it leaves the body. It will still contain the bacteria that it aquired while it was in your body. This is why & how doctors can diagnose urine, bladder & kidney infections in urine samples. It's also why you're advised to boil the urine in survival situations before you drink it. It's also part of the reason why some people's toilets will develop a horrible black film when not cleaned regularly! This myth drives me crazy! I don't know where it came from, but I wish it would stop! I have a medical background (from multiple sources) & I'm currently a health science student just for context.

Oyster shells yes! Scrape that stuff out of your bum! My brother had his nose cauterized regularly because he had giant nose bleeds. Straw ferments and so anything that fell on it for mended and got stinky after a while. Mashed Mouse brains. My mother grew up with a chamber pot because the phone was so cold that nobody would go downstairs in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. It was kept under her bed and cleaned every day by my grandmother who scoured everything. My mother is 85.

Urine is "NOT" sterile. The kidneys are the organs of the body which cleanse the body of poisons and toxins and flush these very non-sterile substances from the body as urine.

Pogs weren't milk bottle lids, they were paper juice bottle lids from papaya, orange or guava juice and there was a game associated with it. Someone from Japan saw native children in Hawaii playing it and commcericalized it. The bottom fell out because so many companies produced them and the prices got to insane levels for "rare" and "limited" editions. Crocs shouldn't be mocked, they should be embraced because if the simplicity of manufacturing, durability and recyclable nature of them. They are shoes that can be manfactured at an affordable price without requiring underpaid workers in the third world essentially being slaves for you to wear them like the shoes in your feet currently.

Everyone should check out urine therapy. I know it's gross but it works if step on a nail and your foot gets infected. Put your foot in a container with your pee in it next day no infection.

Contrary to the myth supported by this video, urine is NOT sterile before or after it leaves the body. This is logically evident by the existence of bladder and urethra infections. It is relatively clean BEFORE it gets to the bladder. Urine in the kidneys or the ureters is very clean.

During the Civil War you had a 90% chance of living while on a battle field & a 10 % chance of living if brought to a medical tent. The doors were so over worked & they knew little about about grems, & sterilization, plus they didn't have the supplies, people, or clean places to do surgery s. They threw cut off limbs out the windows, or in bags hung out the windows.

The Romans used to clean their bottoms with sticks with clothes on them. That's where the saying," I hope I don't get the shot end of the stick", comes from. Everyone also "shared sticks". Ah? No thanks! Bill Gates & buds are developing a mic-crow wave type box where poop is put & some how is converted into electric. They're doing it in India.

At-1:50-- See up on top of the towers where it looks like clothes pins? They would have wooden boxes with holes so you'd relieved yourself there & the stuff would get on the walls, of course in the water. When it filled the most a person (s) job (s) was to shovel the waste out. When they would build the homes with the smaller part of the building being on the bottom, the next story was bigger , the next was bigger after that, made it so they folks there paid less in taxes but also the 'over hang' somewhat helped to keep the bath rm wastes that were thrown out of the upper storys from hitting the folks below. They still walked in the stuff.

Topic: Do You Love God? Key Text: John 14:15 KJV -If ye love me, keep my commandments. The question everyone should be asking themselves is: Do I really love God? Praying or singing to God does not mean you love Him. In today's world, most people pay to get blessings from God or get delivered from their enemies. They sing to praise God when they need favor from Him. Doing all these, does not necessarily mean they love God. For instance, some people are very good in praising other people in hypocrisy, all because they want to get something from them. Mark 7:6 KJV You should know that you are not compelled to obey God's word. You will gladly obey His word, if you sincerely love God; which would actually gladden God's heart. The love of God, is His commandments which He has commanded us to obey. This is a way to show us how much He loves us. Keeping God's commandment, is a way of reciprocating our love for God. Therefore, whosoever loves God, loves his own soul and whosoever hates God, hates his soul too. John 14:15 KJV, Romans 6:23 The love of God in one's life, makes things work out well. Loving God brings favor and keeping of God's commandments, keeps one in God's favor. It is written, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose". Do you want to experience God's favor and divine protection? Learn to love God and keep His commands. Accept Jesus Christ today, if you're not yet born again. Romans 8:28 KJV Prayer: Oh Lord, grant me the grace to keep your commandments and to show how much I love you; in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen. Reflection: By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. 1 John 5:2 KJV More about Divine Inspiration, www.msrpm.org Visit Our DE-vid channels for more undiluted end time messages 1.

Cauterizing a wound isn't necessarily gross, other than the smell of burning flesh. I've had to cauterize a gash I had, and sure, it hurt, but it kept me from losing too much blood. I've also used super glue to seal up nasty cuts when nothing else was around.
Mandy B
Mandy B Vor year
Cauterisation is used to treat constant (relatively speaking) nose bleeds. As I understand it - I'm open to correction - some people have their blood vessels too close to the surface inside their noses. Cauterising the vessels can stop this problem. I guess I got lucky that I grew out of frequent nose bleeds that I had when I was a kid. Imagine the smell remaining in the nose for ages! But it's definitely better than having nose bleeds daily.
