* dental: plaque



* dental: canker sore / apht / ulcer



* itchy ear canal / ear entry

"""
Does the skin around your ears feel dry, itchy, or irritated? There are a number of things that may be causing your ear discomfort, such as heat exposure, harsh soaps, or a possible chronic skin condition.
"""

https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/324671
check for "swimmer's ear"

"""
An outer ear infection (otitis externa) causes pain, redness and swelling in your outer ear canal. This is the tube that leads into your ear. Outer ear infection is usually caused by bacteria. But they may also be caused by a fungal infection, irritation or eczema in or around your ear canal.

* ADHD

seems Guarana helps !

"""
Guarana refers to the seed extract of a natural stimulant native to the Amazon forest.
Of the herbs discussed here, guarana most resembles ADHD stimulant drugs. It contains xanthine alkaloids such as caffeine, theophylline and theobromine.
The alkaloids in guarana not only boosts stamina and energy but they also reduce mental fatigue. Caffeine, for example, increases the levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. At the doses in which it is supplied, it actually has a calming effect on hyperactive ADHD kids.
Theophylline also stimulates the central nervous system and it improves mental alertness. Theobromine, on the other hand, improves mood.
Therefore, all the medicinal effects of the alkaloids found in guarana can help improve different symptoms of ADHD.

Painkillers

    NO ALCOHOL
    ----------
    BE CAREFUL WITH DOSE
    5G WILL DESTROY YOU ALREADY


* alcohol:
    NO MIXING WITH OTHER PAINKILLERS
    as a last resort?
    ________

    "His team systematically evaluated the different results in previous studies and were able to “reliably conclude” that alcohol is an analgesic. They were also able estimate the amount of pain relief a certain dosage of alcohol provides.
    For example, they found that around two pints of beer or two medium-sized glasses of wine resulted in a 24 per cent drop in pain ratings. And the higher the blood-alcohol level, the greater the pain relief (up to a blood-alcohol level of .11)."""
