Is it ok to swallow water that you gurgle, is there a chance of it accidentally going into my lungs or would i know by me coughing?

Is it ok to swallow water that you gurgle, is there a chance of it accidentally going into my lungs or would i know by me coughing?

Normal swallow: First, lets decide if we want to swallow the water from gargling. In general, for any liquid we swallow, we do it very well. Our mouth and tongue help us to form a bolus, and initiate the swallow, our epiglottis covers our airway and down the esophagus goes what ever we put in our mouths. When distracted, talking, starting a cough, or a chuckle when we should be closing the epiglottis, we cough. ...Read more

If a lash from extensions fall in your eye, and you aren't sure if it got out, what happens to it? How will you know if it's gone or in there still?

If a lash from extensions fall in your eye, and you aren't sure if it got out, what happens to it? How will you know if it's gone or in there still?

It will come out: The combination of tears, mucus from the eye glands and the natural movement of eyelids will drive the eyelash, if it is still there, towards the inner end of the eye and it will come out. It may be embedded in matter when it comes out. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
