The Lucky Iron Fish

This is very cool.

Low iron is a very real health problem. And it’s systemic, by which I mean it affects the entire system of the body. It’s not like a broken bone where one part doesn’t function well, it actually causes problems throughout a body.

Here in the US, doctors used to prescribe “nail tea” to people with anemia. You took a couple of iron nails, boiled them in water for several minutes, and drank it down. The water, not the nails.

Cast iron cookware is another solution, since microscopic bits of iron get mixed into anything cooked in the pan.

This is a lovely, elegant, culturally sensitive to a very real health problem.

Check out the video.

Oh, and after I posted this link in social media, I found out that a friend of mine is the admin for their main American office. I knew what she was doing, I just didn’t know for whom.

So this blog, if you look at the past posts more than the recent ones, is mainly about keeping a good attitude and sharing it with other people.  It’s also about speaking my truth, which is why there are so many depressing things lately:  that is what my life is like.  AND it is about the idea that, my struggles are common to human beings.  If I can solve them, then what I learn may be useful to other human beings, so let me share my experiences.

To that end, I registered the domain name Kiss5Tigers.

When I did that a year ago, I had a job so the small fee was affordable.

Nowadays, with unemployment run out and welfare still debating whether I qualify, I can’t justify the cost.  That is, how can I spend money on registering a domain when I no longer have jeans that are wearable and my daughter likes to eat on a regular basis?  There are more urgent places to spend my money.

But I believe this blog has the potential to be important.  At least, it is important to me!

Therefore, I have opened an Indiegogo project.  If you like my blog or if you believe in supporting people who are trying to make a difference, please check it out and consider a small donation.  If you don’t have any spare cash (and a lot of us don’t!), at least spread the word.

I’m going to go have my morning coffee, and here is the link:
