    1. Anon when I was small,stomach pain was my sickness,always having stomach pain.my mum tried everything medically but nothing,until my grandma told her to use ajumbaise,then it hasn't gone viral like it is now.I was always taken that stuff.That was how my stomach pain dissappeared.

    2. I think you should visit a specialist hospital and insist on seeing a gastroenterologist: The most common is STOOL/Occult blood test and the advance one is laproscopy/colonoscopy- it is a type of scan where an instrument will be inserted into her rectum to examine and some biopsy investigations..They could also be a need to do X-rays...I hope this helps and I pray for healing on your daughter..

      Delete
    3. I know this may sound somehow but trust me, God is still in the business of healing people. A woman testified today on NSPPD this morning about this same issue. Her daughter was having stomach pains since age 5 and God miraculously healed yesterday. Have faith and keep praying for your daughter ❤️

    4. Have you heard of endometriosis???

    5. Huzza, yes that's true. That testimony came to my mind as I read the comment by 14:39.

    6. My 8 years old daughter used to have stomach cramps also. I had to take her to the hospital. After examining her,the doctor said she was fine,that most little girls have it and it's nothing to worry about. She was given Buscopan. After taking it for 3days, the pain stopped. Give her Buscopan.

    1. Dont tie ur tummy. Relax very well eat good nutritional meals and avoid eating at late night. And most especially patience

    2. Don't tie it till 3/6 months time,for best result be taking warm water till 6months.

    3. Two weeks!!
      Please, relax and enjoy your new baby.
      Just try not to eat every thing in sight. Exercise will come much later.

      Delete
    4. Avoid swallow for the next six months if you can. Use eko or solid pap as your swallow with either peppersoup or vegetable if you feel like taking swallow. Make vegetables your major meal. Little rice lots of vegetables. I had my 3 kids through c/s and you won't know unless I tell you. This is what I do. It helps me lose baby fat quickly. The clothes I wore before giving birth I wear them to know if I've added weight and it still fits.
      My first baby is ten and my last is 1 and my clothes still fit. I'm a size 10 up and 12 down.

    5. Go and buy shreddergang post partum belt. It's suitable for CS mums too.
      Ask them how soon you can start yours. Remember to eat just as your body demands not too much nor too little. Breastfeeding helps burn calories as long as you don't over feed yourself.

  8. How do you tell a roommate she has body odour..
    So she is my roommate and she is super nice and intelligent but she has this excessive body odour like a rotten fish, I always have to hold my breath whenever she is in my space gisting.
    And no, she isn't dirty.. she baths regularly, morning and night.
    This lady is so sweet and she confided in me about how her boyfriends always end the relationship with no concrete reason, could it be the odour, coz I'm certain any guy would want to stick to her.
    How do I help her without hurting her feelings? Bv's help me please.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Tell her.

      Delete
    2. Please you have to hurt her a bit. Tell her, 'sisterly, I have noticed this wrong fragrance from your body. Let's work on it together and make it go'. She'd be grateful to you if she is really what you say she is.

      Half teaspoon of baking soda in three litres of water daily will flush out impurities from her insides and the odour will disappear after a while.

      It could also be spiritual. So you guys can pray about it while working in it physically.

      Delete
    3. Chai so sorry for her,she confides in you so it's easy naaa.. just tell her .

      Delete
    4. There is no easy way but just sit her down and be as sweet as possible and let her know, she will be so grateful and the solution to her problem can come

      Delete
    5. Tell her the reason they break up with her. And try help her if you can

      Delete
    6. You can approach her privately and choose your words carefully..Tell her about your concerns and then ask that you are ready to help her...Lemons helps to control odours and it is very easy to use..Cut lemons into two equal halves, rub under her armpit and allow for some minutes and then shower and use deodourants... Or Use good old vinegar and some cotton wool (pls dilute the vinegar with water, it is acidic)..Dab her armpits with the vinegar and then rinse her armpits..

      Secondly she should watch what she eats and like onions, poultry, beans and fish..Thirdly she maybe battling fish odor syndrome which is caused by over secretions of protein in our body (this is genetic and no cure for now) but she can take the above measures.. I hope this helps..

      Delete
    7. Just buy her scenting soaps and deodorants a gift at least that was what I did for a friend and since then she started buying them herself case closed

      Delete
    8. I guess she repeats her bras more than 2 days. Buy her lime and ler her apply to her armpits. Wash off after 30mins. Let her buy new bras and let her soak her tops for 2days, wash the armpit area and soak again

      Delete
    9. I think it may be a genetic condition like Phoenix said.I have watched a documentary on that.Try helping with other hygiene things and if things still don't change,then it is it.

    10. Your roommate might have Bacteria vaginitis (a vaginal infection) there’s always a characteristic fishy odour....tell her to visit the hospital, if possible a teaching hospital..the doctor will prescribe a simple course of antibiotics and she’ll be fine...Hospital, not chemist or Aunty Nurse...specific antibiotics for specific infections

    5. Let me give the same recommendations I gave the person that asked this same question in the spontaneous post. Since price is not a concern, you should get a Vitamix or Ninja blender, They are REALLY GOOD. Vitamix is a personal fave. Depending on the model and capacity you decide to go for, the price range for Vitamix blender is between 290-600usd, Ninja is between 90-200USD

      Note that for security-prone apps like "Signal", you must not forget the verification pin,if not after 6 months of bypassing the pin to use it, your messages will cease to be private.

      Always enter the pin when it pops up.

  18. I really like training people o how to bake, cook, and decorate cake etc.

    I do this for free, but I work from home. I don't want to get a studio bakery for now , reason best known to me.
    I don't feel comfortable letting someone I don't know into my home.
    I still want to train more people because of the situation of the country.

    What can I do . How can I reach more people.
    I am proud to see those I have thought doing well.
    I even help out with project when I can.
    Is there an organization that I can join to reach more people without bringing them to my house.

    1. Why not go to catering schools and help out since you do it for free. You could tell them to reduce the fees of students in baking session since the teacher isn't charging. My two cents.

      Delete
    2. You can do short videos that explains each of these skills in a lay man's term. That can help too.

      Delete
    3. You could also invest in creating an online course. That way, you’ll sell to people all over the world and keep making money even when you’re not working.

    1. I suggest selling hair extensions (attachment). Women will always make their hair and it is profitable.

    2. Since you are a student, why not use that money and buy OK clothes and sell...Since your girls are into perfumes, I think you should do something unique..Look around your hostel or where you stay and identify a need that is lacking and tap into it...

      If you have blender, you can put up post that they can grind their tomatoes at a certain fee, Can you make hair; try hairdressing but look for something that would distract you from your studies...All the best..

    3. Why not sell first grade OK bras. If they are really good you would sell. Go to katangowa if you live in Lagos. You would get good first grade. I have a man I buy from and he sells real good quality.

      Delete
    4. Please, student bv DON'T sell OK anything (used clothing).

      Learn a skill (baking, fashion design/tailoring, cooking, hair-dressing /braiding). Any of this would earn you good money in and out of school.

    3. Please, identify the food or drink that makes your stool watery.

      Zobo drink and vegetables cause that for some people while hot beans or too much pepper deals with others.

      There must be one or two foods that trigger yours.

      It could also be low immunity.

      It's very small.

    3. I am pretty sure alot of Nigerians want to relocate. Try other countries like Finland, Sweden, Norway, etc. Getting canadian visa now is a bit difficult due to pressure. You also have to be careful because some of the european countries are now on the second lockdown as well as the United Kingdom. Now in our country, I would advise that you chill Abit, invest that your money judiciously because the weaker the Naira against other currencies the less valuable the money becomes.

      There are schools you can get admission into and payment is installmental.
      Look for schools outside Toronto, Alberta, Calgary, Vancouver.
      These schools fees are not that high and once you get into Canada,you can work 20hrs aweek to support ur schooling.

      All the best.

    2. You didn’t specify if it’s for your first degree or masters. Either way, 4million is not enough. I’ll advise you search for scholarships. I think anyone with a 3.0 CGPA is qualified for scholarship opportunities.

    3. Thank you for reaching out. I had economics as my first degree with a lower grade though (third class) am considering of going for another degree

      Delete
    4. Our bad economy and weaker currency have made the foreign tuition fees look unaffordable and I am not sure of a stronger Naira under this Vuhari. With your 3rd class of degree and considering foreign education, you will have to apply for some crash programs leading the full BSc awards

  27. For Someone who has an HND in banking with over 8years work experience, What will be the next step if the person wants to further as he is torn in between going for a PGD them Masters, Getting professional Certification courses from CFI or do a HND-conversion Programme. Please your honest advice is needed, Thank you

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. My honest advice will be to have a scale of preference. Ask yourself what step will most likely give you faster results. In my honest opinion, the professional course should come first. It’s quicker, and almost an automatic upgrade. It places you on a very professional pedestal. If you observe vacancies these days, you’ll see things like “Professional certification is an advantage”

      After your certification, then start working towards your masters. Good luck!!

      Delete
    2. If you are planning to build your career in Nigeria,then I advise that you do a PGD before moving on to Master degree but if you plan on relocating, that your HND and 8+years of work experience can qualify you for some programmes in UK schs either fulltime or online/blended learning
