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”.

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

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.

THE MIRACLE HEALING OF ALOE VERA

0

Every now and again, in researching and learning about NATURAL HEALING, I come across some information which amazes me.

I believe that I have known about “ALOES” AKA “ALOE VERA” my whole life.

I have known of its topical uses for healing cuts and burns, and also of taking it internally for cleansing.

The gel inside this cactus is believed to have great health benefits.

The gel inside this cactus is believed to have great health benefits.

I have seen people travel with an aloe plant or two to grow in their houses and apartments in North America. I have also seen apartment with too many aloe plants because I guess, us Caribbean people, just have to have access to aloes.

A few years ago, when I first realized that I had celiac disease, the only thing that brought some healing to my intestinal trauma, was drinking aloe on an empty stomach.

From this exposure, (article I read) I learned that ALOE VERA is much more beneficial to our health than I was previously aware. You can introduce yourself to the internal benefits of ALOE VERA in this form.
