Meditation

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

The French philosopher Blaise Pascal said, “Most of the evils in life arise from a man’s being unable to sit still in a room.”

The Bible says, “Be still, and know that I am God.”

We have known for a long time that meditation is a real asset to a balanced life. Yet in our busy world watching a TV screen with a picture on top and the crawler on the bottom bringing us the “latest news” divides our attention.

Dr. Martin Luther used the word “prayer” for meditation. He said if he didn’t have time to pray for four hours first thing in the morning his day didn’t go well.

Tibetan monks would meditate for days on end. But we know today if we even take 15 minutes to sit still and meditate our life starts to come back into order.

Take time to meditate each day.

Protecting Your Brain Against Alzheimer’s Dementia

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases are on the rise. The pharmaceutical companies have not found a drug that cures a person. What’s the answer?

It’s so simple that most people don’t know about it. It’s getting proper cellular nutrition.

Studies have shown that one of the largest if not the only cause of neurodegenerative diseases is oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is simply the damage made to our cells by the normal process of metabolism, which creates free radicals.

Antioxidants to the rescue. But some antioxidants don’t pass through the blood brain barrier and then the cells begin to die. To keep a healthy brain we need a good diet, exercise and quality nutritional food supplements. A major factor in the death of brain cells are the statin drugs which take the cholesterol from the body. Without cholesterol, Co-Q10 and other nutrition, the brain cells die and the loss of mental capabilities sets in.

Studies today are showing with proper supplements which will pass through the brain blood cells some of the damaging effects can be reversed.

Again, eat good nutritious food, meditate, exercise regularly and take quality supplements.

Reiki

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

Reiki is a Japanese form of healing that is becoming more popular here in the United States and throughout the world. Reiki incorporates elements of just about every other alternative healing practice including spiritual healing, auras, chakra balancing, meditation, and homeopathy.

Reiki involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient and enhances the body’s natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. It is a holistic, natural, hands-on energy healing system that touches all levels of body, mind and spirit.

As Americans become more concerned about body, mind and spirit it natural for many to look into Reiki for healing.
