How do I know when will I feel tiger balm work?

Tiger Balm: Rarely, severe allergic reactions can occur at the application site. Symptoms of an allergic reaction to tiger balm include rashes, hives, itching, difficulty breathing and chest tightness. Do not use tiger balm if you have ever had an allergic reaction to products containing menthol or camphor. Your pains will resolve if tiger balm works.

My lower back hurts after excercising (body pump class). How long shall I not go to the class, n what's a good cream (tiger balm?) to use?

My lower back hurts after excercising (body pump class). How long shall I not go to the class, n what's a good cream (tiger balm?) to use?

Pain free x 2-3 days: You shouldn't return to exercise until you've been pain free with activities of daily living for at least 2-3 days. Then, do so gradually and avoid painful exercises. I don't find over-the-counter topicals very effective, especially for low back pain where the source of pain is rarely very superficial. Oral anti-inflammatories tend to work more effectively.

My negative thoughts are a steamroller. I can't seem to stop them. They are like a lion or tiger on the loose. Can you you give me a tip?

My negative thoughts are a steamroller. I can't seem to stop them. They are like a lion or tiger on the loose. Can you you give me a tip?

Our brain: Is like a snow ball processor wired for negativity both emotionally & cognitively. U say it very well: "tiger or a lion on the loose". Tip: visualize the powerful felines, see urself jumping on them both & dare the ride on their backs. Our snow ball processor brain can also start a positive/solution snow ball while the big negative one melt like snow under the sun. Good luck & enjoy the ride!

Are tiger moth dangerous to human beings in any way?

Are tiger moth dangerous to human beings in any way?

Tiger Moth: Although the moth secretes a neurotoxin for its own protection against its predators, they do no harm to humans. I really would not eat one though, not necessarily due to its toxicity, but that little dust on the wings kinda sticks in your throat.
