    Eat lots of yogurt before pollen season.

    Also-eat honey from your area (local region) daily.

    (actually, tea suppresses my appetite and keeps the pounds from invading.
    Green tea is great for our immune system)!


    Use honey as a tranquilizer and sedative.


    Eating onions helps ease constriction of bronchial tubes.
    (when I was young, my mother would make onion packs to place on our chest,

    Letter by Maths Teacher

  • To,

    My Dear Sweet Heart,

    Yesterday, I was passing by your Rectangular House in Trigonometric Lane.

    There I saw you with our cute Circular face, Conical nose and Spherical eyes, standing in
    your Triangular garden.

    Before seeing you, my heart was a Null set, but when a Vector of Magnitude (likeness)
    from your eyes at a deviation of theta radians made a tangent to my heart, it Differentiated.

    My love for you is a Quadratic equation with real roots, which only you can solve by
    making good Binary relation with me.

    The cosine of my love for you extends to Infinity.

    I promise that I should not resolve you into partial functions but if I do so, you can
    Integrate me by applying the limits from Zero to Infinity.

    You are as essential to me as an element to a set.

    The Geometry of my life revolves around your acute personality.

    My love, if you do not meet me at parabola restaurant on date 10 at sunset, when
    the sun is making an angle of 160 degrees, my heart would be like a solved polynomial
    of degree 10.

    With love from your higher order derivatives of Maxima and Minima, of an unknown function.

    Yours Lovingly,
    (Maths Teacher)
