If you’ve always wanted to strengthen your pelvic floor -but you’re just too busy, fear not. The solution to your weak pelvic muscles has arrived in the form of lingerie. All you need to do is slip on some pantyOs, and you’ll be one step closer to mastering Kegels-at least according to the company’s website. “Put on your pantyO and Kegel anytime or anywhere…while shopping, driving, working, watching TV, and with your other exercise routines.”
There’s only one small caveat: If you read the fine print, you find out that pantyO is indeed only an accessory, making no medical claims. Shocker!
While it may sound gross to eat the organ that provides your fetus with nutrients, it’s actually quite common-at least in mammals, and increasingly in humans. The only difference? Humans are having their placentas dehydrated and ground into powder to make pills. Toronto doula Rean Cross told Healthzone that she provides that very service to new mothers to help boost energy levels, fight mood swings and enhance milk production. “You have to get past the ick factor,” she says.
Is it possible to get over the “ick factor” of cooking one of your organs and eating it?
The Tongue Patch
If only eating were painful, everyone could be thin! At least that’s the idea behind the tongue patch, which, according to the doctor that invented it, is “a revolutionary weight reduction procedure.” All you have to do is get a patch SEWN TO YOUR TONGUE. Which is obviously a great idea because it makes chewing solid food difficult and painful, limiting you to a liquid diet. Revolutionary.
