The 10 Myths of Creatine , from youtube.com
“Published on Oct 14, 2012

Hi, Shawn Phillips here.
Enjoy my response to the 100’s of questions I get about Creatine, the supplement we launched at EAS in the mid 90’s… wow. Time flies. And this is STILL the #1.
https://GetFullStrength.com..”

“What Happens When I Stop Taking Creatine?”



The first is the additional water retention that is held inside of the muscle cell. After stopping creatine for around 2 or 3 weeks, this particular benefit will in fact be lost. Creatine requires additional water in order to be stored inside of your muscle cells, and when you stop using creatine, those extra water stores will flush out along with the creatine itself.

The second is the increased strength and gym performance. This one will vary quite a bit from person to person and it depends on how well you responded to creatine supplementation in the first place. Assuming you do respond well, you might notice a slight reduction in gym performance after cycling off creatine. However, it shouldn’t be too significant, and whatever additional muscle you originally gained from the creatine use should remain intact.

So, to sum it up, when you discontinue creatine use, you will lose the additional creatine water weight and you may experience a slight reduction in strength, but you likely won’t lose any actual lean muscle tissue that you gained.

The real question though, is why stop using creatine in the first place? There is no benefit to creatine cycling (going off creatine for a month, for example, isn’t going to give you any added benefits)… it is completely safe to use over the long term… and it’s also very inexpensive.

Assuming you are someone who benefits from this supplement, my advice is to just use it continuously, as I can’t see any reason why going off creatine would be beneficial.”

Creatine Monohydrate 101: The Research Behind A Phenomenon! Matt Weik June 05, 2017 • 5 min read bodybuilding.com
“…Some research suggests creatine supplementation may serve as a buffer in the muscle and may decrease muscle lactate accumulation, enhancing performance in sport events dependent on the lactic acid energy system.

One consistent finding in most studies is an increased body mass. A week of creatine supplementation has been found to increase body mass by about 0.9-2.2 kilograms (2.0-4.6 pounds)” (Williams, 1998).
“In one study, creatine supplementation reduced ATP degradation by 30% and increased work output during two 30 second bouts of maximal isokinetic cycling” (Casey, 1996).
Paul Greenhaff, a British exercise physiologist said, “Creatine should not be viewed as another gimmick supplement; its ingestion is a means of providing immediate, significant performance improvements to athletes involved in explosive sports” (Williams, 1998).

How to Use Creatine Effectively: 6 Things You Need to Know
https://youtu.be/ACMulj9PKGM
“..1. The first point we will go through is what type of creatine should you get. There are a variety of different types of creatine but most studies have concluded that creatine monohydrate delivers the same (or in some cases better) effect as the other forms of creatine. However, polyethylene glycosylated creatine is one molecule that may be better absorbed by the body than creatine monohydrate. 2. The next thing we go through is what you should take it with. Studies have shown that taking creatine with 96g of carbs or an equivalent of 47g of carbs and 50g of protein was able to increase muscle creatine stores by 60% more than taking it with just water. Based on this, we can assume it’s better to take creatine with a post-workout meal or shake. 3. This brings me to the next point which is when to take it. Based on previous information from the second point, I would advise to take it post-workout with a meal or shake. 4. I often get asked whether to do a loading, or cycling protocol when taking creatine. Studies concluded that loading protocols provide faster initial effects but provide the same long-term effect as non-loading protocols. Cycling protocols do not appear to provide a more enhanced effect. 5. How long should you take creatine for? If you are a responder and it’s helping with your strength, then take creatine regardless of whether you’re bulking or cutting. In the case that you get bloated and want to cut, I would stop taking it. 6. You can stack creatine with beta-alanine which may provide more enhanced effects than creatine alone. I suggest adding 3g of beta-alanine to your daily creatine intake. ..”

Is Creatine Safe? | Creatine for Muscle and Brain Performance- Thomas DeLauer

Is Creatine Safe? | Creatine for Muscle and Brain Performance- Thomas DeLauer:
Finally, one of the most popular questions! Is Creatine Safe? Want to Chat with me? Go to http:/www.ThomasDeLauer.com

An early study on creatine supplementation found a 20% increase in the stored creatine and phosphocreatine in the body when participants consumed 20 grams of creatine for several days in a row. This increase looks to be the upper limit with the remaining being excreted through urine. Many studies have shown benefits of creatine supplementation, including bench press, sprinting, high intensity exercise, among other fast cardio and weight training type workouts.

Side Effects:
Unfortunately studies have examined safety of creatine for less than two weeks, not for long term use. Many possible side effects include dehydration, muscle cramping, nausea, kidney damage and kidney stones, and renal damage. Creatine supplements are not monitored by the FDA and thus there is the danger of impurities in supplements.

Creatine as a Nootropic:
Nootropics are substances that people use to enhance their brain function, giving mental clarity, energy and health. Five percent of the creatine stored in our bodies is found in our organs, such as the brain. For your brain to work quickly, it needs readily available energy stores just like your muscles do! Neurons rely on the fast phosphagen cycle to create energy for communication. Vegetarians have been found to have lower levels of creatine stores in their brains. One study found creatine supplementation to enhance performance on some skills related to cognitive function.

Tips:
You can find dietary creatine in meats, particularly beef, wild game and wild caught fish. A common study protocol was to have participants take 20 grams per day for 5 or 6 days, so be sure not to exceed that quantity. It’s only beneficial for short duration, high intensity exercise, not for endurance sports.

“.. What is Creatine Monohydrate?

Creatine is similar to protein in that it is a nitrogen-containing compound, but is not a true protein. In the nutritional biochemistry world it is known as a “non-protein” nitrogen. It can be obtained in the food we eat (typically meat and fish) or formed endogenously (in the body) from the amino acids glycine, arginine, and methionine..”

Creatine Monohydrate:
The Advantages & Disadvantages
By Susan Moraa On 8 June 2014 In Creatine Supplements mycreatine.org
“..Naturally, creatine monohydrate is found in small quantities in the body where it assists in the generation of energy for the normal functioning of the cells. Although we have had other sportsmen and women using the modern and other mixtures of creatine, I highly recommend the use of simple, basic monohydrate because it is effective and completely safe. In fact, it is the only creatine supplement that has clinical trials backing up it’s validity as a muscle-building supplement…

Advantages

According to researchers creatine monohydrate not only increases the weightlifting performances but also all the other kinds of physical training including cardio.
Apart from getting enough energy to do extreme exercises for longer periods, creatine monohydrate will help your muscles recover more quickly.
By speeding up the fat burning process in your body, it will greatly assist you get lean muscle mass hence a fine body shape. This however will not happen if you don’t work out.
Creatine does not contain calories. This is a relief to those who fear adding excessive weight if they don’t exercise adequately.

Disadvantages

So long as you drink a lot of water during exercises after the consumption of creatine, you are safe; because creatine helps draw water to the muscles. Dehydration and muscles cramp are the results of not drinking enough water. Sometimes, due to the accumulation of creatine in the small intestines, you are bound to experience nausea and stomach pains. This can be avoided if you buy high quality creatine monohydrate and take the dosage as prescribed…”

What is the Christian view of yoga? gotquestions.org

“…The question becomes, is it possible for a Christian to isolate the physical aspects of yoga as simply a method of exercise, without incorporating the spirituality or philosophy behind it? Yoga originated with a blatantly anti-Christian philosophy, and that philosophy has not changed. It teaches one to focus on oneself instead of on the one true God. It encourages its participants to seek the answers to life’s difficult questions within their own consciousness instead of in the Word of God. It also leaves one open to deception from God’s enemy, who searches for victims whom he can turn away from God (1 Peter 5:8).

Whatever we do should be done for God’s glory (1 Corinthians 10:31), and we would be wise to heed the words of the apostle Paul: “Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise” (Philippians 4:8, NLT). A Christian should exercise caution and pray for discernment regarding involvement in yoga…”
The Truth About Yoga-
Yoga led Laurette Willis into a New Age lifestyle. Now she’s warning others of the spiritual pitfalls—and offering an alternative.

Holly Vicente Robaina Home>2005>March
“… It was 1965, and Laurette’s mom, Jacquie, didn’t think twice about exercising along with this yoga program that came on the TV after Jack La Lanne. She developed a passion for yoga, and began instructing free classes in her home. Laurette served as the demonstration model for her mom. The young girl relished the attention—and her family never suspected this seemingly innocent exercise would open the door to a New Age lifestyle that would affect Laurette for the next 22 years…..

She’s developed a prominent presence on the Internet, largely due to her new exercise program, PraiseMoves, which she calls “a Christian alternative to yoga.” She shares her testimony on the website (www.PraiseMoves.com) in a pull-no-punches style, and responds to numerous e-mails—some curious, others critical of her stance on yoga. Additionally, she posts comments on the message boards of other fitness and religion websites. She’s also self-published a book and video about PraiseMoves….

As an adult, Laurette immersed herself in every New Age and metaphysical practice she came across: chanting, crystals, tarot cards, psychics, channeling spirits.

“I tried everything—Kabbalah, Universalism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism —because I was spiritually hungry,” Laurette says. “I call the New Age movement ‘Burger King’ because it’s like the fast-food restaurant’s motto: ‘Have it your way.’ That’s what the New Age movement tries to do, to achieve God on its terms.”…

Is Yoga Sinful? desiringgod.org

“…Secondly, I would want to say that both yoga and tai chi, the little I know and the little research I have done, have their roots in eastern worldviews and are profoundly in those roots antithetical to a Christian understanding of God and the way he works in the world. So yoga is to the body what mantra is to the mouth — that is the way I would put it anyway. One explanation says that for the mantra, “One has to chant a word or a phrase until he or she transcends mind and emotions and in the process the superconscious is discovered and achieved.” Note the use of “word” in that mantra-like way in order to move into the superconsciousness. In other words, yoga exercises are a spillover from that kind of verbal repetition and philosophy of how one moves physically and emotionally and intellectually to this superconsciousness…”

Should Christians Do Yoga? .cbn.com
“…These are postures that are offered to the 330 million Hindu gods. Yoga postures really are; they are offerings to the gods. If you do these postures and you do this breathing technique and this meditation, then you will be accepted by a god, little “G.” That’s the real danger,” she said.

In yoga they do what they call pranayama breathing. Prana is the Hindu word for life force, the same concept as the word chi in some martial arts. Yoga breathing attempts to manipulate that life energy, which Laurette believes is perilous. “That is a dangerous thing,” she said, “because I think that we are coming out from under the blood of Jesus when we do stuff like that, and we are no match for the enemy in those areas. I think of what Paul said in Ephesians 2:2, that Satan is the prince of the power of the air. We are not talking about oxygen.”…

Laurette told me that one of her PraiseMoves certified personal trainers visited India for three months on a mission trip, and she would often see people in the streets doing yoga poses in front of the statues of the gods…

“Romans 12:1-2 says we are to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice to God,” added Laurette. “Here they are doing something very similar with these postures to their 330 million gods, and it is scary. So we abstain from things offered to idols—Acts 15:29.”..”

After being informed that the audience would have some professing Christians who do yoga, this talk “Dangers of Yoga and Kundalini” was given.

This talk includes Purvi’s testimony of her journey as a former devoted Yogi to a follower of Jesus Christ/Yeshua haMashiach as well as an analysis of Yoga from a biblical perspective for the first hour. The second portion is a question and answer session.

Disclaimer: In this video I suggest pilates as an alternative to yoga. I have learned since this talk that too many modern pilates classes are mixing yoga into the routines and it can be difficult to decipher for many. I do regret so liberally recommending pilates. I would recommend free style stretching , dancing, and general muscle toning as well as cardio exercises without hesitation. Sorry for any confusion or hindrance I may have caused!

Special thanks to brother Rodney and sister Khala for helping get out the truth about Yoga and for great hospitality!

Yoga and Christianity: Are They Compatible? – A Biblical Worldview Perspective Michael Gleghorn , May 27, 2002 probe.org
“..Before we begin digging, however, we must first understand what the term “yoga” actually means. “According to tradition, ‘yoga’ means ‘union,’ the union…of the finite ‘jiva’ (transitory self) with the infinite’…Brahman’ (eternal Self).”{2} “Brahman” is a term often used for the Hindu concept of “God,” or Ultimate Reality. It is an impersonal, divine substance that “pervades, envelops, and underlies everything.”{3} With this in mind, let’s briefly look at three key texts that will help us chart the origin and development of yoga within India.

It appears that one can trace both the practice and goal of yoga all the way back to the Upanishads, probably written between 1000-500 B.C.{4} One Upanishad tells us: “Unite the light within you with the light of Brahman.”{5} Clearly, then, the goal of yoga (i.e. union with Brahman) is at least as old as the Upanishads.

In addition, the word “yoga” often appears in the Bhagavad Gita, a classic Hindu text possibly written as early as the fifth century B.C.{6} In chapter 6, Krishna declares: “Thus joy supreme comes to the Yogi . . . who is one with Brahman, with God.”{7}

Finally, in about A.D. 150, the yogi Patanjali systematized yoga into eight distinct “limbs” in his Yoga Sutras. These eight limbs are like a staircase, supposedly leading the yogi from ignorance to enlightenment. In order, the eight limbs are: yama (self-control), niyama (religious observances), asana (postures), pranayama (breathing exercises), pratyahara (sense control), dharana (concentration), dhyana (deep contemplation), and samadhi (enlightenment).{8} It’s interesting to note that postures and breathing exercises, often considered to be the whole of yoga in the West, are steps three and four along Patanjali’s “royal” road to union with Brahman.

We see that yoga is an ancient spiritual discipline deeply rooted in the religion of Hinduism. This being so, we may honestly wonder whether it’s really wise for a Christian to be involved in yoga practice. Next, we’ll continue our discussion by examining some of the important doctrinal differences between yoga and Christianity.

First, yoga and Christianity have very different concepts of God. As previously stated, the goal of yoga is to experience union with “God.” But what do yogis mean when they speak of “God,” or Brahman? Exactly what are we being encouraged to “unite” with? Most yogis conceive of “God” as an impersonal, spiritual substance, coextensive with all of reality. This doctrine is called pantheism, the view that everything is “God.” It differs markedly from the theism of biblical Christianity. In the Bible, God reveals Himself as the personal Creator of the universe. God is the Creator; the universe, His creation. The Bible maintains a careful distinction between the two.{9}..

Kundalini Energy and Christian Spirituality – Discussion innerexplorations.com
“..I accept that not all people are drawn to the ‘mystical’ side of things, and nowadays think that perhaps it not always necessary to have been through a powerful kind of experience like Kundalini in order to have a strong relationship with God. I have read many stories about people who have experienced Kundalini and suffered some very harmful effects. To me, yes it is preferable to have had a stable grounding built up over many years through dedicated prayer and study, rather than put oneself through this. Kundalini is something I’d really only recommend to people who are very mature, stable and responsible – not to young and impressionable people who are mainly out for the thrill of an ‘out of this world’ type experience, because having had the experience, you then have to deal with it and the repercussions over the long term, for the rest of your life..

The therapist worked with me on a mat and strange things happened to me – noises coming out of my stomach, energy moving through my body etc Unfortunately, against the advice of my Jungian therapist, I continued to go for a few more months. In one session something opened up in me and out of my mouth came a primal scream. The therapist pushed me back onto a mattress on the wall. I felt so ashamed by what I had done. This was the beginning of the nightmare!

A few months later I woke up with the feeling that a large female snake was coiled on top of my head. It was pushing me down, down. I was terrified! By this time I had stopped doing the bodywork. I told my Jungian therapist and she told me that that night she had had a dream of a snake in her home. The next day I was walking to work along a busy street in my home town. It was 8.30 am and the sun was shining. Suddenly I felt a movement at the bottom of my spine – I then saw a vision of a snake curled there. It start talking to me and I started talking to it. I was still walking. Then I was in the park and I put my arms around a gum tree with a white trunk and the snake uncurled and attached itself above my head to the tree. This was to change my life forever….

…Of course, Jesus is uniquely THE Son of God and THE Christ as our Savior and the Firstborn among many brethren. We continue this human experience in eternity on a richer, fuller multi-dimensional level, but still in a body with God as Jesus is now as a human, though as God Jesus is omnipresent. Jeff .”

Kundalini Awakening: Serpent Power

Christian Yoga: Bringing The Kundalini Serpent Into The Church
by Geri Ungurean December 17, 2014 by NTEB Feature Story Contributor Geri Ungurean nowtheendbegins.com
“In spite of the advertisements and talk about health and fitness Christian yoga’s real goal is to awaken Kundalini power, coiled like a serpent at the base of the…
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
“..Dave Hunt:

“Well, to put it bluntly, it’s demonic. There is no way you can explain it physically, it’s a non physical force. There certainly is nothing coiled at the base of the spine, three and one-half times coiled like a serpent that’s going to spring up when you get in the proper state of consciousness, supposedly. This is the same occult power that all the occultists are in touch with, or try to be in touch with.”

In yoga, the student is told to empty their minds to prepare for meditation. An empty mind is exactly what Satan likes! Look at what God says about meditation:

“Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer.” (Psalm 19:14)

We meditate on His Law and on His Word. We FILL our minds with the goodness of our Father’s perfect and Holy Words. Do you want an empty mind, or a mind filled with God’s Word?

“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” (Psalm 119:11)..

Don’t forget that the Evil one – the father of lies – the author of confusion – Satan, wants to take you away from the Lord. Hold fast to what you know is right. Turn away from evil. Cling to Jesus and His Word.

1 Peter 5:8
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

When a successful software engineer decides to face his ego and take the journey to happiness, he finds himself in a very casual, ordinary place: a yoga class. Ayman Al-Khatib talks about his journey to the Self and gives a few tips on how one can reach what every man seeks. Ayman is a devoted Yoga teacher and the founder of the Guru Yoga group in Lebanon. In 2012, he started a journey traveling throughout Nepal, India, and many other amazing places. A life changing journey of self-discovery which resulted in him ending his corporate career and becoming a Yoga teacher. Having lived and studied in an ashram in India, Ayman is, today, dedicated to sharing the traditional Yogic philosophy and science in Lebanon and worldwide.

Yes to Yoga
Can a Christian breathe air that has been offered to idols?

by Agnieszka Tennant| May 19, 2005 christianitytoday.com
“…Also yesterday, shame rushed through my face as I read on The Huffington Post, the hot, new, militantly liberal website, a reference to an article on yoga published by Christianity Today’s sister publication Today’s Christian Woman. In it, Max Blumenthal rightly pokes fun at the admiring article’s main voice, which belongs to Laurette Willis, who believes yoga is pretty much of the devil. “Yoga’s breathing techniques (pranayama) may seem stress-relieving, yet they can be an open door to psychic influences,” Willis says.

Willis, who used to be a yoga instructor, believes that the practice opened her mind to New Age spirituality and led to her depression and alcoholism. After she was born again, she’s remade herself into a PraiseMoves instructor (and skilled marketer). She wouldn’t say this, but let’s face it: she’s still a yoga instructor—thus acknowledging yoga’s healthful benefits—but now offers biblical explanations and biblical-sounding names for the poses…”

Health: How to “fight” the flu?

I’ve rarely catch the flu and when I do, I do all these “home remedies” to fight it without any prescription meds (e.g. Tami Flu). I average “one” or “no” flu a season. I never had to get a vaccination at all…maybe as a kid, but never as an adult. In fact, this past winter season, I didn’t catch it all! I decided to do a blog on this topic today after chatting with someone that has it, which I asked her ..during the summer!? I did this to give her some “natural” remedies to fight this…

CAUSES

What are the causes of the flu (influenza)?
The flu (influenza) viruses
.medicinenet.com
“…influenza viruses cause the flu and are divided into three types, designated A, B, and C. Influenza types A and B are responsible for epidemics of respiratory illness that occur almost every winter and are often associated with increased rates of hospitalization and death. Influenza type C differs from types A and B in some important ways. Type C infection usually causes either a very mild respiratory illness or no symptoms at all; it does not cause epidemics and does not have the severe public-health impact of influenza types A and B. Efforts to control the impact of influenza are aimed at types A and B, and the remainder of this discussion will be devoted only to these two types….”
Flu Attack! How a Virus Invades Your Body
January 06, 2014 articles.mercola.com
https://youtu.be/Rpj0emEGShQ

“… The video above gives a wonderfully clear illustration of what happens when someone nearby you sneezes… and you end up inhaling the virus. It’s said that a single sneeze may produce up to 40,000 droplets, which may leave your mouth at speeds of more than 200 miles per hour.1 While some of the heavier droplets will fall to the floor, others remain airborne and are quickly circulated around the room. If the droplet is infected with a virus, and you inhale it, the video shows how a single virus can quickly begin producing millions of copies within your cells.

It’s a frightening prospect, until you realize that your body has more than 1 trillion cells – making 1 million viruses a mere drop in the bucket.

Also important, your body is equipped with its own highly effective defense system – your immune system – that starts killing viruses almost as quickly as they are produced. As long as your immune system can stay one step ahead of the virus, you’ll feel better again quickly… and in some cases may not even know you were “sick.”

Preparing Yourself for the Flu Season Naturally

By Catherine Clinton ND, Clinic of Natural Medicine naturopathic.org
“Each winter the influenza virus wreaks havoc on our ability to work and play. Symptoms of the flu include fever, fatigue, muscle aches, headache, runny nose, cough and stomach symptoms like nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Sometimes a flu virus can come on slowly or it can hit suddenly without much notice. Each year this leads people to wonder how they can prevent themselves and their family from getting the flu. Naturopathic prevention and treatment of the flu virus includes vitamins and minerals, botanical medicine and lifestyle recommendations….

Lifestyle tips for the prevention and treatment of the flu:

Sleep- Maintaining a balanced sleep routine is one way to keep our immune system healthy. Adults need 7 to 9 hours of sleep each night to rejuvenate for the next day. Consistent inadequate sleep lowers the body’s defenses needed for fighting viral infections.

Stress- While stress is a part of everyday life; excessive stress can decrease immune function and make it easier to come down with the flu. Establishing stress management techniques like deep breathing, exercise, yoga or meditation can help ensure that every day stress won’t leave you vulnerable to the flu.

Diet- A diet rich in fruits, vegetables and quality proteins is a foundation for a healthy immune system. Studies have shown that eating a sugary snack or meal can depress the immune system for several hours, creating a window of time during which it is easier to get the flu. Avoiding excessive sugar can keep the immune system working at the level needed to fend off viral infections, like the flu….

• For a sore throat remedy, fill a 250 mL glass with warm water, mix in one teaspoon of salt and gargle away. The salt really does soothe the pain.

• Add a squeeze of lemon juice to a glass of warm water for the more traditional sore throat gargle. This creates an acidic environment that’s hostile to bacteria and viruses.

This woman asked for prayer as she was feeling quite bad from the flu. After prayer, she felt heat moving through her body and she was healed. Here’s her testimony.”

Healed from Sinusitis!

Gerhard – St. Petersburg, Russia cai.org
“…Rebuke the infection of the sinuses.
Lay hands on your face and order the sinuses to open, and the pus to flow out. Order the sinuses to heal.
Pray for the arms to become the same length (this corrects any twists in the spine) and order the swelling of the sinuses to disappear.
Avoid nicotine (no problem after I became a Christian) and caffeine.
Drinking at least 8 glasses of water will help.
A few hours after this prayer and drinking lots of water, the pus started to stream down my nose and the pressure was released! Praise the Lord – He did it without any needles!..

“.. So I did everything I thought of – I commanded any spirits of infirmity to leave me, I came against the sickness in Jesus name, I cast it out my body, but it got progressively worse. The body chills started which led to body pain. I kept running to the bathroom wanting to throw up. I prayed throughout the day for my healing because I did not want to take more time off work! By the time I got home, all I could do was lie in bed and literally cry like a baby from the pain. I could not get up because my dizziness was so severe I kept falling all over the place.

As I lay in bed in tears, it got to the point of me now begging God for healing. “Please Lord, I don’t even know what to pray anymore!”
Suddenly and as clear as day the words “JESUS IS LORD” flashed in my mind. I just went with it. As loudly as I could muster, halfway into my pillow, I declared, “Jesus is Lord… Jesus is Lord…sickness-Jesus is Lord, so get away from me.”

Within twenty minutes I was as right as rain! The dizziness and fever went away and so did the body pain! I was able to eat something for the first time that day. And I had sweet sleep (Proverbs 3:24). It was as if I could feel the illness dissolve…”
