Monkeypox Outbreak in Non-Endemic Countries

The Finest Herbal Shop is dedicated to finding a cure and improving the quality of life for people affected by the Monkeypox virus currently spreading worldwide.

What is Monkeypox?

Monkeypox is a rare, communicable viral disease in humans spread by wild animals and is usually found in the rainforest countries of central and West Africa where it can be fatal for 1 in 10 people who contract it.

Limited human spread has been reported in the past, with estimated transmission rates of 3.3% to 30%. However, during a recent outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the transmission rate was estimated at 73% percent.

A relatively mild viral infection, the disease has a 6 – 16 day incubation period with patients experiencing symptoms such as fever, sweating, headaches and swelling with a rash with papules and pustules on the face and chest.

Monkeypox is a viral zoonosis, a virus transmitted to humans from animals and is related to smallpox, as they are both orthopoxvirus. However, it is not related to chickenpox, caused by the Varicella Zoster virus (VZV), despite their similar names.

How Is Monkeypox Contracted?

Transmission of the Monkeypox virus occurs when a person comes into contact with the virus from an animal to human on material contaminated with the virus. The virus, though not visible, is spread by contact with bodily fluids containing the virus rather than through the air like measles or Covid 19. It enters the body through broken skin, through the respiratory tract, or the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose, or mouth.

According to health officials, there are increasing cases of Monkeypox, which is similar to smallpox, but less severe.

 What Are The Symptoms of Monkeypox?

In humans, the symptoms of Monkeypox begins with:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle Aches
  • Exhaustion
  • Backache
  • High Temperature
  • Swollen Lymph Nodes 
  • Chills
  • Malaise
  • Rash with Papules and Pustules on the Face and Chest

Is Monkeypox Fatal? 

Monkeypox can be fatal, however, the strain of viruses responsible for the current outbreak causes a milder form of the disease.

How Do You Prevent Monkeypox?

To prevent Monkeypox, avoid contact with animals that could harbor the virus, including animals that are sick or that have been found dead in areas where Monkeypox occurs.

Also, be sure to avoid contact with any materials that has been in contact with a sick animal, such as saliva or blood on a towel, etc. Be sure to isolate and quarantine the infected patients from others to prevent risk of infection to others.

In addition, due to the theory that the Monkeypox virus is also caused by air borne transmission, airborne precautions should be applied whenever possible.

The Finest Herbal Shop is licensed for the treatment and relief of symptoms of Monkeypox. The herbs work best to ease these symptoms if administered as early as possible.

Practical Ways To Get Rid Of Old Bad Habits 

A popular saying among our folks states “Old habits die hard”. This maxim has held down a lot of people from trying to attempt a change in their old bad habits. The belief that no one easily parts with old habits has made people linger in them until the habits destroy or cause a fatal consequence on their health. 

Everyone is a creature of habit. A young girl who starts the habit of waking early to prepare for school even before Mama comes knocking at the door of her room has started to cultivate the good habit of waking early for school. Soon, she will start to wake early for work and appointments as she continues to grow. That is how a lifestyle is formed. 

The continuous practice of habit formation can become a lifestyle over a short or long period of time. Getting rid of old habits might be tougher than expected. It is like parting ways with a dear friend, I must say. But still, it is very much possible and easy.  

People find it difficult to let go of old habits because they tend to do it the wrong way. Behavioral psychologists have stated in recent research that “people desire to substitute old habits for new ones through the means of resolution and nothing else.”  

It takes more than a resolution to make the substitute. I have taken time to identify the easy and practical ways to get rid of your old bad habits.

How do I get rid of my bad habits? 

“I know how to get lose weight; how to exercise; how to eat healthy food, but I find it difficult to abide by these habits.” 

#1 Identify the reason for a change 

Why do you need to hit the gym? Why do you have to reduce the intake of soda? Why do you need to adjust your meal plan? Why do you have to wake up earlier or make new friends? 

If you cannot find candid answers to any of these questions, then you are not ready to let go of your old habits for new ones.  

To imagine a need to change an attitude or habit is the same as the necessity to change such attitude or habit. The fact that your attention is awakened to the need to change might be an important premonition. 

When you identify these reasons, then you are one step closer to parting ways with the old habits. 

#2 Recognize the trigger of the old bad habit 

I have discovered that when most people get so tired, probably after work, they desperately desire to consume any sugary content that comes their way, with little regard to the condition of their current sugar levels. 

Some people eat more than usual when they are alone, or when they are nervous. Other people bite their nails when they are nervous. While others spend most of their time sleeping or playing video games after work or an examination. 

Whatever the case may be, identify the trigger. It will be your cue as to why you engage in such habits. In the mentioned instances above, the trigger is NERVOUSNESS, ANGER, BOREDOM, STRESS, LAZINESS, or IGNORANCE. In your case, it might be different or similar. But whatever it may be identify the TRIGGER. 

#3 Disrupt the routine  

After you have identified the triggers of your old or bad habits, the next action you take is to disrupt and stop the habits you are not pleased with. 

When you are alone you eat more than usual, and this has led to your increase in weight and you need to stop, right?  

The next time you are alone at home or any place, instead of eating, get an interesting novel to read. It will rather increase your knowledge rather than your body weight.  It will be simple because you’ve already identified that your craving for food is usually increased when bored. So, get the books or novels ready to satisfy that craving instead. 

The same logic applies to other triggers, instead of giving in to the routine that comes after your trigger, find something more satisfying and engage with it. Instead of biting your fingernails when nervous, why not pocket your hand or fold your arms for good posture instead. That you will look more handsome or pretty. 

#4 Stay motivated with good willpower for change 

 Maintain strong willpower for change in your old habit. This takes you to the first step when you identified the reason you must change. Let this reason be the motivation. 

Some people must lose some weight because they want to have a body that fits well into their wedding dresses. Or because they want to secure their dream job with the military or other places. 

Others may have to start physical exercise because they must stay fit in other to keep their appointment at work. Some people need to stop biting their fingernails because of the occurring shame it brings to them. 

Importantly the major reason should be because it is not healthy to keep your old habit. To have a healthy lifestyle is the best motivation. 

#5 Make a reward for yourself 

This final step rests the bed and gives you the best drive to get rid of a bad habit and cultivate a new and healthy one.  (I don’t understand this sentence) 

When you start to incorporate changes to the routine, and you keep your motivation and willpower high, it won’t take much to keep going because your mind will be on the reward.  

Your reward should be moderate and logical to the new healthy habit you are developing. It shouldn’t be what will make you slide right back into the old bad unhealthy habit.

These two complementary concepts practiced together have provided healing and wellbeing to
communities all around the world. Medicine, as generally believed, is the concept of ingesting in
or on the body or surface that consequently provides a cure to the impaired condition or
malfunction. Historically, “traditional medicine” is sourced from the natural materials that
humans find in their environment. Popular of the natural materials we have the plants and
herbs. Natural herbs that grow in our fields have, over the years, been the major source of
healing and feeding to the human population.

Though natural herbs still possess this healing power, attention has been diverted to the
sophisticated alterations made to the plants in forms of chemicals and other unnatural
ingredients. These substances, mixed with natural elements, are produced to create what most
of what our healthcare system offers to patients which is now called “medicine”.
Now, I want to clarify that my intention is not to degrade the effectiveness of chemical drugs
administered in our health centers across the world. Rather, I am writing to open our eyes to
natural medicine and its efficacies and efficiencies in providing healing and wellbeing.

Countries across various continents around the world have historical and tangible evidence to
what natural herbs have achieved in their communities. Many European countries, such as
China, India, Jamaica, Africa, and Brazil, have held their experiences of natural herbal cure in
great reverence. These are real and physical experiences that speak the gospel truth of natural
healing power to spiritual healing that does not fail.
Remarkably, governments of many countries have recently been encouraging their citizens to
partake in the agricultural resuscitation to bring back the healing experiences that provide
healthy lifestyles through herbal medicine and fresh fruits and vegetables. Thus, traditional
medical practitioners have now seen the need to provide guides on the regulations and
directions to how these natural herbs can be used and applied to achieve good health.

Cholesterol levels in the body. High or Low ? What you should know.

What is cholesterol?

Cholesterol is a type of lipid. It’s a waxy, fat-like substance that your liver produces naturally. It’s vital for the formation of cell membranes, certain hormones, and vitamin D.

neonbrand MEbT27ZrtdE unsplash scaled

You probably have heard about cholesterol, but you might not be sure exactly what it is. Cholesterol is a waxy type of fat, or lipid, which moves throughout your body in your blood. Lipids are substances that do not dissolve in water, so they do not come apart in blood. Your body makes cholesterol, but you can also get it from foods. Cholesterol is only found in foods that come from animals. Your body needs to rebuild its cells and to make certain hormones. It's carried throughout your body in your bloodstream. Your body only requires a small amount of cholesterol. When there's too much cholesterol in your bloodstream, you have high cholesterol. This is a very common condition. Cholesterol levels generally rise with age. Unfortunately, high cholesterol can significantly increase your risk of heart disease, stroke, and peripheral vascular disease. Most of your body's cholesterol (about 80%) is made in your liver. The rest comes from your diet. Dietary cholesterol is found in foods from animal sources, such as eggs, meats, and dairy products. There are two important types of cholesterol you should know about: Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad" cholesterol: Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) is often called “bad cholesterol.” It carries cholesterol to your arteries. If your levels of LDL cholesterol are too high, it can build up on the walls of your arteries. The buildup is also known as cholesterol plaque. This plaque can narrow your arteries, limit your blood flow, and raise your risk of blood clots. If a blood clot blocks an artery in your heart or brain, it can cause a heart attack or stroke. According to the Centers for Disease Control and PreventionTrusted Source, over one-third of American adults have elevated levels of LDL cholesterol. High-density lipoprotein (HDL), or "good" cholesterol: High-density lipoprotein (HDL) is sometimes called “good cholesterol.” It helps return LDL cholesterol to your liver to be removed from your body. This helps prevent cholesterol plaque from building up in your arteries. When you have healthy levels of HDL cholesterol, it can help lower your risk of blood clots, heart disease, and stroke. Very-low-density lipoproteins (VLDL) are particles in the blood that carry triglycerides: Our blood also contains a type of fat called triglycerides. This is stored in the body's fat cells. Being very overweight, eating a lot of fatty and sugary foods or drinking too much alcohol can make you more likely to have a high triglyceride level. Triglycerides can also contribute to the narrowing of the artery walls, increasing your risk. You may see it on your cholesterol reading results, and your doctor will be able to tell you if it's too high. You can have a normal level of HDL and non-HDL cholesterol but still have a high triglyceride level.

Why is high cholesterol bad for you?

Non-HDL take cholesterol from the liver to the cells around your body. Too much bad cholesterol (non-HDL) can be harmful because it sticks to the inside walls of your arteries. This can lead to fatty material (atheroma) building up – this process is known as atherosclerosis. It makes it harder for blood to flow through, which can lead to a heart attack or a stroke.

If your total cholesterol is high, it can mean that you have a lot of bad (non-HDL) cholesterol in your blood. A high level of good (HDL) cholesterol can help keep that bad cholesterol in check and remove it from your body.

Having enough cholesterol to meet your needs is important. Having too much cholesterol can cause problems. If your cholesterol levels are high, the condition is called hypercholesterolemia. If your cholesterol levels are low, the condition is called hypocholesterolemia. It is not common to have cholesterol levels that are too low, but it can happen.

Keep a close tab on your cholesterol levels. Get it checked Now !

If you’re age 20 years or older, the American Heart Association recommends getting your cholesterol levels checked at least once every four to six years. If you have a history of high cholesterol or other risk factors for cardiovascular disease, your doctor may encourage you get your cholesterol levels tested more often.

Your doctor can use a lipid panel to measure your total cholesterol level, as well your LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglyceride levels. Your total cholesterol level is the overall amount of cholesterol in your blood. It includes LDL and HDL cholesterol.

If your levels of total cholesterol or LDL cholesterol are too high, your doctor will diagnose you with high cholesterol. High cholesterol is especially dangerous when your LDL levels are too high and your HDL levels are too low. You can BOOK a Herbalistic session with Anthia Wint of Finest Herbal Mobile shop to know your Cholesterol level.

How is the total cholesterol, or blood cholesterol, test done? What you need before the test ?

A blood test is a routine test. A phlebotomist is the person whose job it is to draw blood. Blood is usually drawn from the vein in your arm. You will sit down and the phlebotomist will wrap a rubber band around your upper arm so that the vein in your elbow sticks out. Then they will use a needle to puncture the vein and remove blood. The blood is sent to the lab to be examined. You’ve probably been at health fairs where testing is offered. In that case, the person performing the test takes a drop of blood from your finger. The finger stick test uses a small blade to poke a hole in the tip of your finger to get the blood.

In most cases, you’ll need to fast for nine to 12 hours before the test. Make sure you tell the person drawing your blood how long it has been since you ate or drank anything that wasn’t water.


There are some cases when a cholesterol test is done without fasting. This is true for tests done at health screenings and may be true for people younger than 20 or for people who are unable to fast.

Some medical societies believe that fasting is not necessary to get a true picture of lipid levels in the blood, while other associations stand by the belief that fasting gives a better idea of a person’s heart disease risk. You should be clear on whether or not you need to fast, and for how long, before you go for the blood test.

Symptoms of High cholesterol

In most cases, high cholesterol is a “silent” problem. It typically doesn’t cause any symptoms. Many people don’t even realize they have high cholesterol until they develop serious complications, such as a heart attack or stroke.

That’s why routine cholesterol screening is important. If you’re age 20 years or older, ask your doctor if you should have routine cholesterol screening. Learn how this screening could potentially save your life. You can BOOK an Herbalistic session with Anitha Wint of Finest Herbal Mobile Shop now.

Causes of high cholesterol

Eating too many foods that are high in cholesterol, saturated fats, and trans fats may increase your risk of developing high cholesterol. Other lifestyle factors can also contribute to high cholesterol. These factors include inactivity and smoking.

Your genetics can also affect your chances of developing high cholesterol. Genes are passed down from parents to children. Certain genes instruct your body on how to process cholesterol and fats. If your parents have high cholesterol, you’re at higher risk of having it too.

In rare cases, high cholesterol is caused by familial hypercholesterolemia. This genetic disorder prevents your body from removing LDL. According to the National Human Genome Research Institute, most adults with this condition have total cholesterol levels above 300 mg/dL and LDL levels above 200 mg/dL.

Other health conditions, such as diabetes and hypothyroidism, may also increase your risk of developing high cholesterol and related complications.

    • Risk Factors of High cholesterol

      Your risk of heart and circulatory disease is increased if you have high cholesterol as well as other risk factors, such as:

      • High blood pressure
      • Being physically inactive
      • Being overweight
      • Having diabetes
      • Family history of premature coronary heart disease (before 55 for men and before 65 for women)
      • Being of South Asian origin

      The more risk factors you have, the higher your risk of developing a heart or circulatory disease such as a heart attack, stroke or vascular dementia.

      How can I lower my cholesterol levels?

What you need to know on heart disease; Staying in the light of remedy

ali hajiluyi MhFJNz D8t4 unsplash scaled

What is heart (cardiovascular) disease? The term cardiovascular disease may be used to refer to heart conditions that specifically affect the blood vessels. The heart is like any other muscle in body. It needs an adequate blood supply to provide oxygen so that the muscle can contract and pump blood to the rest of the body. Not only does the heart pump blood to the rest of the body, it also pumps blood to itself via the coronary arteries. These arteries originate from the base of the aorta (the major blood vessel that carries oxygenated blood from the heart) and then branch out along the surface of the heart. When one or more coronary arteries narrow, it may make it difficult for adequate blood to reach the heart, especially during exercise. This can cause the heart muscle to ache like any other muscle in the body. Should the arteries continue to narrow, it may take less activity to stress the heart and provoke symptoms. The classic symptoms of chest pain or pressure and shortness of breath that often spreads to the shoulders, arms, and/or neck due to atherosclerotic heart disease (ASHD) or coronary artery disease (CAD) are called angina. Should one of the coronary arteries become completely blocked -- usually due to a plaque that ruptures and causes a blood clot to form -- blood supply to part of the heart may be lost. This causes a piece of heart muscle to die. This is called a heart attack or myocardial infarction (myo=muscle + cardia=heart + infarction= tissue death). Who gets heart disease? Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)Trusted Source. In the United States, 1 in every 4 deaths in is the result of a heart disease. That’s about 610,000 people who die from the condition each year. Heart disease doesn’t discriminate. It’s the leading cause of death for several populations, including white people, Hispanics, and Black people. Almost half of Americans are at risk for heart disease, and the numbers are rising. While heart disease can be deadly, it’s also preventable in most people. By adopting healthy lifestyle habits early, you can potentially live longer with a healthier heart. What are the different types of heart disease and their causes Heart disease encompasses a wide range of cardiovascular problems. Several diseases and conditions fall under the umbrella of heart disease. Types of heart disease include: • Arrhythmia: An arrhythmia is a heart rhythm abnormality. Causes of heart arrhythmia • Common causes of arrhythmias or conditions that can lead to arrhythmias include: • Coronary artery disease • Diabetes • Drug abuse • Excessive use of alcohol or caffeine • Heart defects you're born with (congenital heart defects) • High blood pressure • Smoking • Some over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, dietary supplements and herbal remedies • Stress Valvular heart disease In a healthy person with a normal, healthy heart, it's unlikely for a deadly arrhythmia to develop without some outside trigger, such as an electrical shock or the use of illegal drugs. However, in a heart that's diseased or deformed, the heart's electrical signals may not properly start or travel through the heart, making arrhythmias more likely to develop. • Atherosclerosis: Atherosclerosis is a hardening of the arteries. Causes of atherosclerosis • A buildup of fatty plaques in your arteries (atherosclerosis) is the most common cause of coronary artery disease. • Unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as a poor diet, lack of exercise, being overweight and smoking, can lead to atherosclerosis. • Cardiomyopathy: This condition causes the heart’s muscles to harden or grow weak. • Causes of cardiomyopathy The cause of cardiomyopathy, a thickening or enlarging of the heart muscle, may depend on the type: • Dilated cardiomyopathy. The cause of this most common type of cardiomyopathy often is unknown. The condition usually causes the left ventricle to widen. Dilated cardiomyopathy may be caused by reduced blood flow to the heart (ischemic heart disease) resulting from damage after a heart attack, infections, toxins and certain drugs, including those used to treat cancer. It may also be inherited from a parent. • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. This type usually is passed down through families (inherited). It can also develop over time because of high blood pressure or aging.

  • Restrictive cardiomyopathy. This least common type of cardiomyopathy, which causes the heart muscle to become rigid and less elastic, can occur for no known reason. Or it may be caused by diseases, such as connective tissue disorders or the buildup of abnormal proteins (amyloidosis).
  • Congenital heart defects: Congenital heart defects are heart irregularities that are present at birth.

Causes of congenital heart defects

  • Congenital heart defects usually develop while a baby is in the womb. Heart defects can develop as the heart develops, about a month after conception, changing the flow of blood in the heart. Some medical conditions, medications and genes may play a role in causing heart defects.
  • Heart defects can also develop in adults. As you age, your heart’s structure can change, causing a heart defect.


  • Coronary artery disease (CAD): CAD is caused by the buildup of plaque in the heart’s arteries. It’s sometimes called ischemic heart disease.


  • Heart infections: Heart infections may be caused by bacteria, viruses, or parasites.

              Causes of heart infection

A heart infection, such as endocarditis, is caused when germs reach your heart muscle. The most common causes of heart infection include:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Parasites



What are the symptoms of heart disease?

Different types of heart disease may result in a variety of different symptoms.


Arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms. The symptoms you experience may depend on the type of arrhythmia you have — heartbeats that are too fast or too slow. Symptoms of an arrhythmia include:

  • Lightheadedness
  • Fluttering heart or racing heartbeat
  • Slow pulse
  • Fainting spells
  • Dizziness
  • Chest pain


Atherosclerosis reduces blood supply to your extremities. In addition to chest pain and shortness of breath, symptoms of atherosclerosis include:

  • Coldness, especially in the limbs
  • Numbness, especially in the limbs
  • Unusual or unexplained pain
  • Weakness in your legs and arms

Congenital heart defects

Congenital heart defects are heart problems that develop when a fetus is growing. Some heart defects are never diagnosed. Others may be found when they cause symptoms, such as:

  • Blue-tinged skin
  • Swelling of the extremities
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Irregular heart rhythm

Coronary artery disease (CAD)

CAD is plaque buildup in the arteries that move oxygen-rich blood through the heart and lungs. Symptoms of CAD include:

  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • A feeling of pressure or squeezing in the chest
  • Shortness of breath
  • Nausea
  • Feelings of indigestion or gas


Cardiomyopathy is a disease that causes the muscles of the heart to grow larger and turn rigid, thick, or weak. Symptoms of this condition include:

  • Fatigue
  • Bloating
  • Swollen legs, especially ankles and feet
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pounding or rapid pulse

Heart infections

The term heart infection may be used to describe conditions such as endocarditis or myocarditis. Symptoms of a heart infection include:

  • Chest pain
  • Chest congestion or coughing
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Skin rash

How can I prevent heart disease?

Certain types of heart disease, such as heart defects, can’t be prevented. However, the same lifestyle changes that can improve your heart disease can help you prevent it, including:

  • Don’t smoke.
  • Control other health conditions, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
  • Exercise at least 30 minutes a day on most days of the week.
  • Eat a diet that’s low in salt and saturated fat.
  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Reduce and manage stress.
  • Practice good hygiene.
  • Get close to your doctor or medical Advisor. If you don’t have one yet BOOK a consultation session with Herbalist Therapist expert Anthia Wint of Finest Herbal Shop.

It should not be so as internal body parts can be referred to as the able machinery of the body even though they are not visible without x-ray or any other medical body screening equipments for a living being. They are also the most fragile of the body part. In this article I will be laying emphasis on intestines which is one of the internal body part. What you need to know about likely attack on your intestines growth.

What is SIBO ? SIBO is the acronym for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. SIBO is a serious health condition affecting the small intestine in the body. It happens when bacteria that usually grow in other parts of the gut start growing in the small intestine of the body. This causes pain, digestive torments and diarrhea. It can also lead to malnutrition as the bacteria start to use up the body’s nutrients that should normally be for the body growth. Note that everyone has bacteria in their gut and of course, they play a key part in food digestion in the body. But when the bacteria overpower the territory in the intestines and out weight the balance, problems the occur to the body. The small intestine is the longest section of the digestive tract, measures about 6.1 meters in size. The small intestine is where food taken mixes with digestive juices and nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream. CAUSES OF SIBO • Anatomic abnormalities in the small intestine • When the pH changes in the small intestine • When the immune system is not working well • When the muscular activities of the small intestine malfunction, which then leads to the unavoidable mixup of food and bacteria in the intestine and as a result the nutrient that should be occupied for the body will be suck up by the bacteria. • The abnormally slow movement of the digestive system • When there is low levels of stomach acid • Narcotics products • Drugs that treat irritable bowel syndrome • Proton pump inhibitors that curb acid in the stomach • Antibiotics that affect the bacteria in the intestines • There are high risk for patients of the following diseases like Diabetes, Lupus, scleroderma, HIV or an immunoglobulin deficiency, Crohn and ulcerative colitis to have small Intestinal bacteria overgrowth at one point or the other.

Symptoms of SIBO

Diagnosing Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth

SIBO symptoms can be unspecific which often come with different degrees of severity, which can make its diagnose difficult.

To diagnose SIBO, a doctor will ask about symptoms you have experienced and your medical history. The doctor can then examine your abdomen for likely signs of excess gas or bloating. If suspect SIBO, it is likely to undergo breathing test.

A breath test measures the concentration of hydrogen and methane in a your breath. The results of this test will reveal to your doctor the severity and location of bacterial overgrowth in the gut.This is because bacteria produce hydrogen and methane after they break down carbohydrates in the gut. These hydrogen and methane molecules then enter the bloodstream, travel to the lungs, and leave the body in the form of breath.

You will fast for 24 hours before undergoing the breath test which you will be permitted only to take in sugar lactulose beverage before breathing into a set of tubes or a balloon at regular intervals

Your doctor may need to take samples of your blood, urine, or intestinal fluid for laboratory analysis if need be for it.
