Dynamic Life Cycle of a Kitchen Sponge

A stimulating, in depth piece of literature regarding the household Sponge.

Spongos or Spongia,  to reference online etymology in regards to prizefighting "to throw in the sponge" with respect for the kitchen "to throw out the sponge". 

The appropriate lifecycle and proper usage of the common sponge is unknown in many homes.  Why does this phenomenon exist?

(fun fact:  phenomenon is the singular version while phenomena is the plural form of.the word for those who use them interchangeably.)

In the beginning the sponge is firm,  strong in character.  Both sides present and promise victory in the kitchen.  The sponges scraping pad breaks up the toughest leftovers while the sponge easily cleans and polishes the rest.  Your sponge might come pre-soaked...Lucky you.   A real treat.

Your sponge promises atmosphere in any room.  It's lifecycle is based off of breakdown from time and usage.   Over time the sponges behavior changes, becoming softer in character.  The sponges scraper starts to do less causing your own arm to have to do more.   Though this change is noticeable we overlook it and toss the sponge back on the sink. 

There are different types of sponges.  Two sided sponges with different properties on each side like the above mentioned sponge with a scraper on one side and the other, a soft side.  This sponge is great for dishes and counter tops.  There are also soft sponges that don't include the scraper.  I'm not a fan of these.  These sponges tend to wear down faster than others and they get scummy more.  I can't stand a scummy sponge.  It feels like the bottom of a lake.  Slimy, gooey and just disgusting.   

The older a sponge gets, the more used and worn down it becomes.  I find to extend the life of a used sponge it becomes necessary to rinse and ring out the sponge throughly.  This will at least keep it from scuming up until it can be replaced or until it falls apart.

Quote:  Think of the now, and the change that is occuring, to create a new.

Addison's disease

What is the cause?

According to Wiki.   The main cause is Autoimmune Adrenalitis.  An immune reaction causes the breakdown of your adrenal cortex which creates certain steroid hormones in your body.  This breakdown, inhibits the production of glucocorticoids and mineralcorticoids.

Has it ever been cured?

There is one testimonial online that I've read to claim to have been cured.  The person I read about was on treatment and was following a diet and exercise routine.  They tested as regularly as they could and when it was claimed the disease was gone they stopped treatment and continued to be tested.  Their spirits remained up while having and treating the disease.  A positive attitude of course helps in treatment.  Your psychological state effects your physical or biological state as well so literally "heads up!".   However the question occurs; is it possible for the disease to relapse if it goes away completely?

A woman wrote:   If you drive...please stay on your meds.  You could faint at the wheel and kill anyone of us.  (This is just as important to me too)

There is not enough evidence to guarantee the disease can be cured however there are stories that inspire hope.  (Don't trade your steroid hormones for grassy milkshakes but keep trying)

If you are interested in the diet from the story below:

Hi Miriamb,
My diet is mainly whole foods, although I am not completely restirctive. I try to follow a few guidelines: 1) staying alkaline, 2) keeping my gut healthy, 3) avoiding inflammatory foods (sugar, dairy, gluten, nightshade veggies...), and 3) getting *lots* of dark leafy green veggies, typically in the form of green smoothies. There are lots of references out there, but here are some of my favorites: "The Acid/Alkaline Food Guide", "The Body Ecology Diet", by Donna Gates, and "Green Smoothie Revolution", by Victoria Boutenko (this one has over 200 recipes!). I hope this is helpful - good health to you! ~Michelle
I Have Addison's disease

As of now, the disease is known and proven to be manageable through lifetime treatment.  Treatments include medical, dietary and exercise.  A healthy lifestyle for you guys and gals.

Quick Note:  There are also testimonials of Vitiligo being cured with just Ginkgo Biloba and Copper.  You can get that at the store.
