A few days ago, I was comparing health problems with my friend Sandi over at CHATTY CRONE. We both have bad knees. I need full knee replacement, and have been putting it off various ways. One of the most helpful things has been the set of three injections I get in my knee every six months. These shots provide lubricant and cushioning to the knee when bone is rubbing against bone. Sandi informed me that the shots were made from rooster combs!!! Needless to say, I was dumbfounded!! I researched it, and of course she was right. The rooster combs contain a high amount of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that is naturally occuring throughout the human body, but declines with age. The rooster crowns are actually cut up, purified, and made into the injectable drug. They now think that this stuff may be an anti-ageing remedy, as ABC News did a special on it "The Village Of Long Life:Could Hyaluronic Acid Be An Anti-Ageing Remedy?" This was about a village in Japan where lots of people live into their 90's with no flawed skin, cancer, or heart problems, even though they eat high fat foods and many smoke! When I took these pictures a couple months ago, I had no idea that those red combs were responbible for keeping me on my feet that day. The fountain of youth has made me just plain chicken!! BWAK BWAK!!
If I could bow my knees anymore, it would be to only one thing. And that would be here in Philippeans 2:9 "Therefore God exhaulted him to the higest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
