Most of life is habitual. You do the same things you did yesterday, the day before and every day for the last month. It’s estimated that out of every 11,000 signals we receive from our senses, our brain only consciously processes 40.

Habits, good or bad, make you who you are. The key is controlling them. If you know how to change your habits, then even a small effort can create big changes.

A clogging up of the entire pipe system of the human body. Special accumulation points are the tongue, the stomach and particularly the entire digestive tract. This last is the real and deeper cause of bowel constipation. The average person has as much as 40 pounds of undigested feces in the bowels continually, poisoning the blood stream and the entire system. Think of it.....

Stress is any change in your normal routine or health. Stress occurs when bad things happen, as well happy things. Getting a raise or promotion is stress, just as getting fired from your job is stress.

Speculative changes cause just as much stress as veritable changes. Pensiveness or anguish about whether you will get that new job is stress the same as being offered a new position is stress.

What Causes Stress?

Women are particularly susceptible to stress caused by hormonal changes. During puberty, your menstrual cycle, pregnancy, and menopause your hormone levels fluctuate consistently and cause stress.

Emotional and physical changes that happen in your life, illnesses, and environmental components such as extreme heat, cold, or altitude, and toxins cause stress. Pushing your body too hard at work or at play will soon deplete your body of the energy it needs to restore itself and result in your becoming over stressed.

Stress Related Illness

Science is constantly learning about the impact that stress has on your overall health. Stress is or may be a contributing factor in everything from backaches and insomnia to cancer and chronic fatigue syndrome (many people believe that CFS and fibromyalgia are the same illness).

Stress is often a key factor when women experience either absence of menstruation or abnormal bleeding. Hormonal imbalances caused by stress may proliferate the symptoms of fibroid tumors and endometriosis, as well as make pregnancy difficult to achieve for couples with fertility problems.

Heart disease is the number one killer of American women. High blood pressure, heart attacks, heart palpitations, and stroke may be stress related cardiovascular conditions. Some women experience changes in their sexuality and encounter various sexual dysfunctions such as loss of desire and vaginal dryness as a result of stress.

Often people feel the effects of stress as fatigue, various aches and pains, headaches, or as emotional disorders such as anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbances. Stress affects others by causing gastrointestinal disorders such as ulcers, lower abdominal cramps, colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.

Frequently people under the effects of over stress will have more colds and infections due to lowered immune system responses. Stress can initiate dermatological conditions such as itchy skin and rashes.

Steps to Reducing Stress and Improving Your Health...

Eliminating stress completely from your life is impossible. However, implementing some stress management techniques can subdue some of its' harmful effects. Stress management includes following a healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and making time for uninterrupted relaxation.

Summer Solstice

The sun unleashed a powerful solar flare and eruption Tuesday just in time for the summer solstice: the first day of the summer in Earth's Northern Hemisphere.

The solar storm occurred in the early hours of Tuesday and was spotted by the space-based Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) operated by NASA and the European Space Agency, according to the website Spaceweather.com, which monitors space weather and skywatching events.

Spaceweather.com officials said a moderate C7-class solar flare kicked off the solar storm and triggered a massive eruption of plasma, known as a coronal mass ejection.

"Magnetic fields above sunspot complex 1236 erupted during the early hours of June 21st, hurling a coronal mass ejection (CME) almost directly toward Earth," Spaceweather.com stated in an alert. "The incoming CME does not appear to be particularly potent; nevertheless, the cloud could trigger polar geomagnetic storms when it reaches Earth on or about June 23rd."

In one SOHO image from about 12:12 a.m. EDT, the eruption can be see streaming out from the sun near the top of the frame, appearing like a bright crown over the star. The event coincided with the summer solstice on Earth — a time when the sun is at its most northern point in the sky — which mark's the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, as well as the first day of winter in the Southern Hemisphere.

Class C7 solar flares are the least powerful type of flares. The more-powerful M-class solar flares are classified as medium-strength events, with intense X-Class flares topping the solar storm list.

Coronal mass ejections are massive eruptions of charged particles and solar material from the sun's surface. Some of these particles are blown out into space, while others can rain back down onto the sun's surface.

Doormat Syndrome

‘Doormat’ Syndrome

Healthy living isn’t about just caring for our bodies, but it’s also about looking after our mental and emotional well-being too. People who behave passively often feel that their lives are outside of their own control, something that not only impairs their quality of life but also can even lead them into depression and anxiety. Unable to express their own opinions, wants and needs, they frequently back down in the face of even the slightest resistance and often feel obliged to say yes when what they really want to say is no.

Although, in certain circumstances, all of us will choose the path of least resistance, there is a big difference between this and feeling unable to stand up for ourselves. In the first case, we do things willingly and we are not filled with resentment. In the second, though, the sense of obligation that comes out of our low sense of self-worth and our feelings of inferiority and guilt makes us feel angry and put-upon as we continually ignore our own needs and meet the demands of others.

Essentially, we teach others how to treat us with every interaction that we have, and if we behave like a doormat, others will treat us as such. In some cases, where feelings of low self-worth are long-standing and deep-rooted, professional help is necessary to address these so that we can learn to act more assertively, but in others, all it takes is to attend a short assertiveness course.

Why Cleanse?

Due to unhealthy lifestyles and poor eating habits most people, young and old, are developing serious problems in the intestinal tract which often times may contribute to the development of many degenerative diseases such as: heart problems, cancer, diabetes, obesity, etc. It has been said that modern day man digs his own grave with his fork and spoon. It is estimated that over 90% if disease can be directly or indirectly related to an unhealthy digestive system.

Cleansing is a way to get rid the body of waste material that has been eliminated. The terms: cleanse and Detox are used often but there meanings are not the same. The term Detox is short for detoxification and it means eliminating toxins from the body. The liver is the main detoxification organ and it is responsible for neutralizing toxic substances, but it eventually the toxins become too much for the liver to handle, leaving the body exposed to these toxic materials, that’s why Detoxifying the body is so important. On the other hand, cleansing usually means eliminating waste material from the body.

Calm and Clear Thoughts

Everyday we are afforded an opportunity to advance. More often than not, we are too bogged down with past days cares to move forward. Wonder what your would be like if you didn't dwell on the mediocre offenses, or any insignificant thing. Wonder what your day would be like if you took into consideration your core strengths and used them to push past your few insecureties. Wonder what your day would be like if you encouraged yourself opposed to worrying. Now, wonder what today would be like if you didn't have to waste time wondering and just lived for today with tomorrow in mind. Everything begins with a thought, but don't think too long. It then becomes a fantasy. Start your day off with a calm and powerful affirmation that you are the artist to the blueprint of your life. You will have to make changes from time to time. So what. Do it calm and clear.

Eliminate illness from your life

Our bodies can literally die in their own waste if it is not eliminated. Many of us, even the very health conscious, need a Spring clean from time to time. Others need a more concentrated clear-out, following years of unhealthy eating and drinking habits, or sluggish metabolism and poor powers of elimination - perhaps all three! In order to build new healthy cells, old ones must be broken down and shed as quickly as possible.

Coffee Enemas

Enemas and Colonics were used routinely in hospitals. Coffee enemas were mentioned in older editions of the Merck Manual, a handbook for medical physicians.They were later popularized by Max Gerson, MD, author of A Cancer Therapy - Results of 50 Cases. Dr. Gerson pioneered nutritional therapy for cancer and other diseases with excellent results. His therapy combined coffee enemas with a special diet, juices and other supplements. The enemas were an integral part of the therapy.
The major benefit of the coffee enema, according to Dr. Gerson, is to enhance the elimination of toxins through the liver. Indeed, endoscopic studies confirm that the coffee enema increases bile output. The major benefit of the coffee enema, according to Dr. Gerson, is to enhance the elimination of toxins through the liver. Indeed, endoscopic studies confirm that the coffee enema increases bile output.To test this idea, a patient was given a coffee enema while an endoscope (a thin tube with a camera on the end to view the intestine) monitored the entrance to the common bile duct. Within minutes of administering the enema, bile flow increased.
Increased bile flow also alkalinizes the small intestine and promotes improved digestion. Coffee also acts as an astringent in the large intestine, helping clean the colon walls.

Enema Basics

"Enema" usually refers to a liquid that is forced (by low pressure) into the rectum, through anus, in order to induce bowel movement, or to wash/cleanse colon, or to re-populate colon with good bacteria, or to treat colon disease and colon related illness!
As far back as man has used tools to make his life and health better there is evidence that healers sought to unplug and let flow the waste from their patients. Giving enemas to treat the sick dates back to a time before writing. Water flowed from the gourds of medicine men and women into the bowels of the ancients as it still does today. The euphoria that commonly follows a good enema and the level of health that accompanies good elimination is known now as then. The cleaning of waste from within the body with an occasional washing is healthful and not to be poo pooed--- well, may be poo pooed, but at least not underestimated. Enemas relieve constipation, diarrhea, dysentery, painful menstruation, depression, toxicity, colitis, diverticulosis, common migraines, tension headaches, acne, allergies and fevers. They stimulate the immune system in infectious disease. The enema is used in preparation for child birth, for internal cleansing, as preparation for religious rites and experiences and more. Although it is not a very commonly asked question, most people would admit to having their rectums visited by an enema nozzle at least once.
With all this history, experience and success, the enema is yet to be studied with any degree of rigor. This is unfortunate. The simple enema is one of the least expensive, proven therapies in the modern medicine chest. Even with the frequency of its use and benefits, it is not talked about or written about. Many people who would greatly benefit from having two or three cents worth of warm water correct their problems, instead take more dangerous, expensive, unnatural cures. A familiar site in many homes is the family enema bag hanging on the back of the bathroom door. This tradition has probably been with us as long as there have been bathroom doors on which to hang these bags to dry. A group of bags hanging up drying would be better, one for each person on the receiving end. This time honored tradition has a good reason. Its presence there is much more than just for the amusement of your brothers, sisters, school chums, neighbors, etc., that see it there. A little drop of water hanging from the draped nozzle tells all passers by that it has recently been in someone's REAR.

You need enema if you are diagnosed, or you suspect to be suffering from: Constipation, Candidiasis , Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) (Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns Disease, Colitus), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Colon Cancer, Hemorrhoids, Prostate Cancer, Prostatitis, Enlarged Prostate, Allergies, Leaky Gut Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Gallstones, MCS, MS, FMS, Infertility, Acne, Eczema, Psoriasis, Body Odor, Mouth Odor, Peeling Lips, Rosacea, ALS, AIDS, Bone Cancer, Leukemia, Parasites, Infectious Diseases, ...
