What are PUMPKINS really good for?

It’s Halloween!!!!

The nutritional value of pumpkins

The nutritional value of pumpkins

Time for pumpkins, lanterns, candy, candy, spiders and spider webs, haunted houses and candy, candy and ghosts, haunted houses and goblins. Scarecrows and more candy!!!! Whewwwwww.

Some things amaze me about Halloween.

  • People go out of their way to create something which is intended to scare people.
  • People. Ironically, are more amused than scared.
  • Goblins, ghosts and witches all of a sudden come out in the daytime.
  • People buy candy to give as gifts to kids who can’t eat it, because they can’t trust people who give them candy.
  • So the only one who benefits are the people selling the candy.

And this activity is so powerful, that adults hesitate to say no to children, even when they don’t believe in it themselves.

The tradition now is for churches and parents who want to dissuade children from taking part in Halloween related events, and “trick or treating” to provide a substitute activity. I never got the wisdom in that. It goes in the same category of electronic cigarettes. “The real thing is bad, but we can still do it in a different way.” We know we are still inhaling chemicals, but at least there is no smoke to offend anyone.  “And then we tell children to “Just say no” Is there something wrong with saying “no” without a “BUT”.

The French Journalist and Novelist Jean-Baptiste Alphonse is credited with the quote. “The more things change the more they remain the same.”  

TIMES ARE DEFINITELY CHANGING

The language of technology.

The language of technology.

I thought about this recently and found myself asking myself.   “really?” Would he have felt the same, if he had lived one hundred years later, and encountered the world of technology, computers, and digital communication?

This is an  expose’ of me and the new digital age. Hope it makes you smile.

I recently had my first experience of learning the simple rudiments of pointing a domain name to a company server. It got me to thinking.
Once upon a time, I thought that pointing automatically involved an index finger.  I guess the basic action is the same as in showing one the way to go to reach a particular destination, but index fingers are not exclusive in this action, in the world of technology, unless you are a one finger typer.

So I pondered some of the new lingo,  that once meant something completely different to me, and how my aged brain has to reset itself to think in this digital age. Having been very much bred in a completely different time and space, the tendency to reflect is somewhat automatic even though at a subconscious level.

Hi, Thanks so much for returning to check out what we are talking about here on “Health And Wealth Builders Intl.”

This article is a follow up to the last one on how chronic inflammation is created, and the dangers of it. 

I actually was not planning on the topic of inflammation being a two part article, but it seems to have resonated with a lot of readers. One reader asked for an insight into what foods cause inflammation.

So here goes. PROTECT YOUR HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

To quickly recap the basics on inflammation in the body:

  • Inflammation can be very dangerous to your HEALTH and WELLNESS.

    Inflammation can be very dangerous to your HEALTH and WELLNESS.

    Inflammation is the body’s response to physical injury. The body’s immune system sends proteins and white blood cells to the site to start the healing process.

  • Interaction of cells with oxygen sometimes causes damage. The damaged cells are called free radicals which attack good cells. (This is known as oxidative stress)
  • In the case of damage caused by excessive free radicals, the injury becomes chronic and continuous so the inflammatory response is also chronic and continuous.
  • Inflammation build up in the body causes all kinds of illnesses. (some argue most illnesses)
  • All medical names for inflammatory conditions end in “..its”. As in bronchitis or arthritis.
  • Anti-oxidants combat this kind of oxidation of cells, and limit the need for these inflammatory responses.
  • If you are not sure if you are getting enough anti-oxidant support, go here.

CHRONIC INFLAMMATION.

Inflammation is an all-round destroyer.

Inflammation is an all-round destroyer.

Are you familiar with what free-radicals are?
How dangerous is body inflammation?
How can you keep a healthy balance?
These an other questions, will be addressed in this article.
Recently I had two simple encounters that caused me to be thinking about the topic of inflammation in the body.

Someone close to me caught a thorn in their finger, and decided to ignore it until a few days later, when it began to hurt. Of course by this time, the inflammation had set in, making it rather tender and more painful to remove. The person was honestly surprised after I had broken the skin with a needle and squeezed the inflammation out, that it was much less painful, and easier to remove the thorn.

And secondly, I was talking to a person, who is suffering from Arthritis, and literally was not aware that arthritis was caused by inflammation. Takes me back to this. Few things just happen. They are usually caused. No invisible ninjas banging on your knee. There is a real reason for the pain and agony.

So I thought that I would do a brief look at the topic of inflammation. This topic is so vast, this medium would only allow for a peek into inflammation and how it affects your HEALTH and WELLNESSRead the rest of this entry

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU LET IN YOUR BRAIN

Start where you are. Work towards your NEW NORMAL

Start where you are. Work towards your NEW NORMAL

We are being led to believe that many illnesses which we encounter later in life are normal. We learn from the outside influences to accept them and maintain them until they overcome us.This may be good for others but certainly not for our personal HEALTH AND WELLNESS.

I can guess who watches the programs on television, based on the ads that are run. Talk about target audience?
We network marketers can learn a thing or two from the media and Neilson, and how we are targeted.

If you watch world news, you hear about erectile dysfunction, bladder leakage, AARP supplemental insurance, and Alzheimer’s medication. You know who is watching at this time, and who isn’t. If you believe them you think it is normal and you should just make yourself comfortable in whatever state you find yourself. Plus it is deeply implied that you are not alone. Just join the crowd and work with it. It goes along with the …happy to be alive…. mindset. Read the rest of this entry

ACHIEVING A NEW NORMAL IN YOUR HEALTH AND WELLNESS

I thought this personal experience will illustrate what I mean by “A New Normal”

AN OLD MINDSET CREATED

You can create a new normal

When I was in high school, there came a time when I was lost in Mathematics. I think I lost my way somewhere in the fractions arena. After that everything else was a blur. I couldn’t understand much. I was frustrated. I felt inadequate, and often wondered what do some people have that I don’t have? I eventually gave up on myself and Mathematics, and concluded that Mathematics was not for me. So I concentrated on my other subjects, and gained enough GCE passes to become a teacher. So I entered teacher’s college and met a mathematics tutor who knew that:

  • Too many people lost their way in Mathematics.
  • Most people could learn mathematics, with the right teaching.
  • Mathematics was indeed fascinating, and she had the right mindset to show that to us.
  • Teachers had to understand and at least like Mathematics in order to teach it successfully.
