Liver Wellness Wisdom for Healthy Vision
The liver is a fat-burning organ: it not only burns fat but also pumps excess fat our of your body system. Your liver controls your body weight. Too much fat in the abdominal area may impair your fat metabolism, turning your liver into a “fatty liver,” which makes you fat.
If you are obese, you have a much higher risk of losing your eyesight, according to the Royal Institute for the Blind. For example, too much body fat is one of the causes of diabetes; too much fat may cause oxidative damage to the eye in the form of macular degeneration.

Wisdom in Making the Shorter Leg Longer If you have back pain, maybe one leg of yours is shorter than the other one, causing your spine to curve accordingly.

Wisdom in Wearing Suspenders
I like to wear suspenders.
There is wisdom in wearing suspenders: it may help you straighten your spine.
Health has a lot to do with your breathing, which has a lot to do with your posture, and posture has a lot to do with your spine. Optimum breathing provides oxygen to your lungs and henceforth to the rest of your body. Breathing, however, can be compromised or even disrupted by poor posture, which will result in an unstraight or crooked spine.
Whether you have a flat or bulging tummy, you tend to push out your tummy when you are wearing a belt for your pants-this, unfortunately, disfiguresyour posture. A correct posture is to tuck in your tummy, slightly squeeze your buttocks and push them forward in order to align your spine. If you do this while wearing a belt, your pants tend to drop, especially if your belt is loose; psychologically and unconsciously, there is a tendency to push the tummy forward.
Wearing suspenders, on the other hand, enables you to tuck in your tummy, without fearing that you may drop your pants. At first, you may find it straining to do just that due to your weak abdominal muscles; however, through greater awareness and more practice, you will be able to overcome it.
With that wisdom in mind, I have been wearing suspenders instead of belts for my pants. If you don’t believe me, get a suspender, and try it out for yourself.
Wisdom in Reducing Muscle Pain
If you experience muscle pain due to injuries, sprains, pulls, and tears. Do not readily reach out for an over-the-counter pain killer.

Apply pressure (compress) by wrapping it in an elastic bandage.
Lift your injured limb18 inches and rest it on a cushion to reduce swelling.
Of course, you also need to give it a break by not exercising it or reducing its movement as much as possible.
