"The analogy that the skin tissue is like a screen door is my favorite to help describe the action of nutrition (highlighting Vitamin C and Aloe Vera) - that "shuts the door to allergens" therefore lowering symptoms. Building healthy tissue is paramount in the first step of keeping the environmental allergens out of the blood stream."
"The skin tissue is like a pocket. Once filled it becomes larger. After a few minutes the serum adjusts to the area and the puffiness will diminish leaving a smooth firm outer surface."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
