[AlternativeAnswers] Feng Shui and Insomnia

 

Good Morning!

Feng Shui and Insomnia

Insomnia is a symptom, not a disease. Insomnia can have many causes, but the biggest cause is due to stress. Stress related to work, school, health or family concerns. Depression is the second biggest cause. The use of stimulants, including caffeine, alcohol, nicotine or other over-the-counter or prescription medications will also cause insomnia. Prescription drugs, including some antidepressant, high blood pressure and steroid medications, can interfere with sleep. Many over-the-counter medications, including some brands of aspirin, decongestants and weight loss products, contain caffeine and other stimulants. Change in your environment or work schedule and even long-term use of sleep medications will actually interupt your sleep cycle. Medical problems, including fibromyalgia or complex diseases of the nerves and muscles can make it very difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Behavioral insomnia, occurs when you worry excessively about not being able to sleep well and try too hard to fall asleep. Most people with this condition sleep better when they're away from their usual sleep environment.

Feng Shui Tips

Make sure your bed is large enough and comfortable. If you are disturbed by a restless bedmate, switch to a queen or king-size bed. Test different types of mattresses. Try therapeutic shaped foam pillows that cradle your neck or extra pillows that help you sleep on your side. Get comfortable cotton sheets. Make your bedroom primarily a place for sleeping. It is not a good idea to use your bed for paying bills, doing work... Help your body recognize that this is a place for rest or intimacy.

Keep your bedroom peaceful and comfortable. Make sure your room is well ventilated and the temperature consistent Try to keep it quiet. You could use a fan or a "white noise" machine to help block outside noises.

Hide your clock. A big, illuminated digital clock may cause you to focus on the time and make you feel stressed and anxious. Place your clock so you can't see the time when you are in bed.

Avoid sleeping with your head towards the door. The proper position in which to have the bed and to sleep is in such a place that allows you to see the door but without being right across from it. This way, you should always avoid sleeping with your feet right in front of the entrance.

Avoid sleeping under a window. Sleeping under a window would have a bad impact on your vital energy, as well as it might cause you to loose some of your positive energy by dispersing it. If you can't avoid sleeping under a window, then you should hang a curtain on the window.

Avoid having pictures of water or fountains in the bedroom. Keeping a fountain or pictures of water in the bedroom can cause insomnia as well as attract bad luck to those who sleep in the room.

Avoid any poison arrows pointing towards the bed. In order to find out if there are poison arrows, you should check for any sharp edges or corners, (such as a desk corner), which might point towards the place where you sleep. If you find any and you can't get rid of them, you can neutralize its bad effect by covering it or by placing a plant in front of it.

Title:   "A New Earth" Study Group
 
Date:   Thursday May 31, 2012
Time:   5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Repeats:   This event repeats every week until Thursday June 28, 2012.
Location:   The Caritas Spiritist Center, 5723 Arapahoe Ave., #1A, Boulder, CO
Notes:   Announcing a New Weekly Study Group at The Caritas Spiritist Center

A New Earth

Awakening to Your Life's Purpose

By Eckhart Tolle

Every Thursday, beginning April 12, 5:00 – 6:30 pm

Eckhart Tolle takes us beyond our own lives to show that we now have an opportunity to birth a new, more loving world. This involves a radical inner leap of consciousness from the current identification with our ego to an entirely new way of thinking about who we are. For this to happen, the very structures of the human mind would need to undergo an evolutionary transformation.

In A New Earth, Tolle shows how this transformation can occur not only in ourselves, but in the world around us. In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. He then gently and in very practical terms leads us into this new consciousness. We come to experience who we truly are, which is infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are.

We ran a study group on this book when it first came out, and then another when Oprah ran her wonderful online series – and now, "by popular demand," we're doing it again! This profoundly spiritual work is sure to spark new insights and personal discoveries as we read and discuss it together (no reading assignments).

[AlternativeAnswers] Exercise As An Anti-Aging Tool

 

Good Morning!

Exercise As An Anti-Aging Tool

Researchers divided 235 sedentary men and women into two groups. One
group did traditional structured exercise 20-60 minutes continuously.
The other group incorporated into their day brisk walks, stair
climbing and other moderate-intensity lifestyle activities. After 6
months, both groups had similar improvements in blood cholesterol,
blood pressure and percentage of body fat. The structured exercisers
gained more cardiovascular fitness. But the point is, the moderate-
intensity folks did benefit. [1].

A group of sedentary, obese women lost 17 to 23 pounds over a period
of 20 weeks by walking for ten minutes 5 days a week. At first, they
walked twice a day, then worked up to four times a day. If you are
not overweight, lifestyle activities probably won't help you shed
pounds. But they may help you convert fat to lean muscle.

Structured exercise in longer sessions is better for you. But
something is better than nothing. For sedentary folks — those who are
physically inactive — lifestyle activity can still give you some of
the same cardiovascular benefits of exercise. Served up in dollops, >
it's easier to fit into your day.

How to do it

By increasing lifestyle activities each day, try doing four 10-minute
increases at least five days a week. The idea is to just do more of
what you are already doing. Here are some great ideas on getting
motivated:

*Walk, don't drive.

*Take the stairs at the office — not the elevator.

*Play with your kids instead of watching them play.

*Bike to the store.

*Stretch while you watch TV.

*Get up from the sofa to change the channel. Channel surfers get
quite a workout.

*Park at the opposite end of the mall from where you're headed.

*If you've got an exercise bike at home, peddle away for 5 minutes
while you're talking on the phone or waiting for the washing machine
to finish.

*Walk the treadmill while watching a favorite TV program.

*Listen to music and dance your way through housecleaning.

*Start slow — a few minutes at first. Then, pick up the pace and go
longer.

*Workout clothes are not necessary, but wear good walking shoes.

*Don't let missing a few days become your excuse to quit.

*Even if you miss a few days, you won't lose all the benefits you've
gained.

*Be flexible. Do what you can when you can.

*Take advantage of opportunities. If you're watching your child's
soccer game, walk around the field.

*Playing golf? Skip the cart.

*Find a partner. Climbing stairs at the office will be far more
interesting if you chat away the minutes with a co-worker.

*Instead of building your life around exercise, build exercise around
your life. [2]

1. Aerobics: The word aerobic literally means "with oxygen" or "in
the presence of oxygen." Aerobic exercise is any activity that uses
large muscle groups, can be maintained continuously for a long period
of time and is rhythmic in nature. Aerobic activity trains the heart,
lungs and cardiovascular system to process and deliver oxygen more
quickly and efficiently to every part of the body. As the heart
muscle becomes stronger and more efficient, a larger amount of blood
can be pumped with each stroke. Fewer strokes are then required to
rapidly transport oxygen to all parts of the body. An aerobically fit
individual can work longer, more vigorously and achieve a quicker
recovery at the end of the aerobic session.

2. Mind Quieting: A disciplined mind is a free mind. Gain control
over your thoughts and you maintain control over your life. Retrain
your mind and you regain your freedom. Calming the mind is a
behavioral technique used to interupt, minimize and
eliminate "psychological noise". Obsessive, repeatitive thoughts,
anxiety and fears are all apart of negative, self-destructive
patterns that can benefit from the power of music and mind quieting.

3. Breathing: Breath is life! Exchange of electrons. Flow of energy.
Air is the primary nutrient. Survival without it is measured in
minutes. It is so important that you do it without thinking. Your
breathing is the voice of your spirit. It's depth, smoothness, sound,
and rate reflect your mood. If you become aware of your breath and
breathe the way you do when you are calm you will become calm.
Practicing regular, mindful breathing can be calming and energizing.
With the addition of music and it's rhythm, the "musical breath" can
even help stress-related health problems ranging from panic attacks
to digestive disorders. Fall into the rhythm of the music and
breathe. Focus on your breathing and the music.

4. Weight Bearing: exercise stimulates tissue growth in bone and
muscles, strengthening the body's structure. A stronger skeleton
reduces the risk of osteoporosis, arthritic joint pain and other bone
conditions. Also known as resistance training, weight-bearing
exercise can be any activity that involves carrying, lifting or
pushing a heavy object. Walking is considered to be weight bearing,
as muscles and the skeleton support body weight. You do not need
to `pump iron' to benefit from this form of exercise.

5. Yoga: Many different types of yoga workouts exist. But many times
in our quest for fitness and a hard body, At some point it becomes
just a workout and not yoga. If you come to this path with fitness in
mind that is important, but Yoga is extremely powerful. If you try to
rush it, you will only slow yourself down. Yoga is not mind over
body. It is harmony between them. In yoga, the mind is used to
perceive (diagnose) and guide (heal) the body. Not to "control" it
and never to force it.

6. Stretching: Just as there are different types of flexibility,
there are also different types of stretching. Stretches are either
dynamic (meaning they involve motion) or static (meaning they involve
no motion). Dynamic stretches affect dynamic flexibility and static
stretches affect static flexibility (and dynamic flexibility to some
degree).

7. Power Walking: Studies have suggested a link between increased
physical activity and a decreased chance for developing disease in
general. Exercise of any kind trims your odds by improving the body's
sensitivity to insulin-a hormone, helps control cholesterol, weight,
and blood pressure, which further guards you from adult-onset of
disease.

8. Swimming: It's hard to beat swimming when it comes to a sport that
builds the body, soothes the mind, regulates breathing, stimulates
circulation, and puts no stress on the joints. That's why it's an
ideal exercise for just about everyone -- old people, overweight
people, young people, people with hip, knee and ankle problems, and
active people with no health problems at all. Plus, swimming has a
calorie-burning potential of 350-420 calories per hour. No wonder
it's one of the most popular fitness sports around.

9. Tai Chi, Qi Gong, Aikido: TaiChi, QiGong, Aikido- these Asian art
forms have been practiced for centuries. QiQong is one of the four
pillars of traditional Chinese medicine: Acupuncture, Massage, Herbal
Medicines and Qigong. Of these, Qigong is the one that can be most
easily self initiated. Both massage and herbal remedies can also be
done as self care, however, Qigong is the mother of Chinese self
healing. Patients who use Qigong faithfully need less medication,
less acupuncture and heal faster.

Tai Chi is a martial arts form that enhances balance and body
awareness through slow, graceful, and precise body movements, can
significantly cut the risk of falls among older people and may be
beneficial in maintaining gains made by people age 70 and older who
undergo other types of balance and strength training.

Aikido is a Japanese martial art developed by Morihei Ueshiba (often
referred to by his title 'O Sensei' or 'Great Teacher'). On a purely
physical level it is an art involving some throws and joint locks
that are derived from Jujitsu and some throws and other techniques
derived from Kenjutsu. Aikido focuses not on punching or kicking
opponents, but rather on using their own energy to gain control of
them or to throw them away from you.

10. Elastic Bands: Resistance training is the benefit of elastic
bands or tubing. As long as we have gravity, we can challenge our
muscles effectively. Doing a push-up is one example of a resistance
exercise. Instead of using weight from another source, you're using
your body weight to challenge your chest and arm muscles, and you
will get toned up just as well as you would using a pec deck or a
bench press. Elastic tubing and bands are great for those who want to
get the benefits of weight training without using traditional
weights.

[AlternativeAnswers] Fw: Homeopathic remedy availability UNDER THREAT!!!

Subject: Homeopathic remedy availability UNDER THREAT!!!

http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/Your_Access_to_Homoeopathy_is_Under_Threat/?cbNJGab

Please read what Helios (large homeo pharmacy in the UK) has sent to their mailing list. Please note that this is a big pharmacy that ships internationally as well. I purchase many of my homeopathics from them and they have a huge range of remedies available, including dog disease nosodes (both vaccine and actual disease nosodes). This law MUST NOT go thru as it is written! We will not be able to order online/by mail/by telephone if it does. PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION ABOVE OR GO TO THE FB LINK IN THE LETTER BELOW. PLEASE CROSS POST FAR AND WIDE!!!

Dear customers, patients and colleagues,
I am writing on behalf of all at Helios to ask for your help.

A review of the Medicines Act 1968 is currently taking place. Section 10 of this Act concerns licensing exemptions for pharmacists, and covers our freedom to supply a large number of different homeopathic remedies. This section has not been updated despite a public consultation last January, to which the entire homeopathic community submitted their concerns and suggestions.

The vast majority of the 3500 remedies available from homeopathic pharmacies are unlicensed. The 60 or so remedies which are licensed are those retailed in health stores and community pharmacies and include Helios‚ licensed remedies. Section 10 (4a) states that a pharmacy can supply an unlicensed remedy to you directly but you have to be physically present in the pharmacy. For the last 44 years and beyond, the specialist pharmacies have provided homeopathic medicines, to all corners of the country, by phone, post, fax and more recently e-mail and internet. This is a safe and convenient service which has continued without complaint or risk to customers for decades and it is important that access to remedies continues.
The practical suggestion put forward was that homeopathic remedies above 6x be exempt from this face to face transaction.

Time is short but there is an opportunity now to highlight this issue and effect a change by writing to your MP.
Below is a letter created by the homeopathic organisations which is being circulated. It gives details of how you can help. We would be grateful if you could take the time to let your MP know the impact that the enforcement of this law would have on your choice of healthcare and lifestyle if access to your remedies were severely restricted. Don‚t forget to include your home address and postcode on all correspondence.
Thank you very much.

This campaign also has a global petition at Avaaz: http://www.avaaz.org/en/petition/Your_Access_to_Homoeopathy_is_Under_Threat/?eNXFaab

Finally if you are a Facebook user, liking the Ĺ’Homeopathy worked for me‚ page will help to show the depth of homeopathic support. http://www.facebook.com/HoWFMe

With all good wishes.

Your access to homeopathic medicines is under threat

Why?

The Medicines Act is being simplified, which is a good thing because much duplication is being removed. However, as a result there are some key elements which could adversely affect your access to homeopathic medicines if the proposals go into force.

What will happen to my access to homeopathic medicines?

If the current proposals by the MHRA are endorsed by government the following would occur:

 You would no longer be able to get homeopathic medicines by phone or online
To get any unlicensed homeopathic medicine a face-to-face consultation would be required at a registered pharmacy. Unlicensed medicines number in the thousands and make up the majority of homeopathic prescriptions, while there are only 50 licenced homeopathic medicines. This will also mean you cannot legally buy unlicensed homeopathic medicines online or over the phone as you currently do.

 Homeopaths would not be able to dispense or prescribe medicines to you
Homeopathic practitioners would not be able to dispense unlicensed homeopathic medicines to their patients. This arises because homeopaths are not recognised by this law as being supplementary prescribers and it will be illegal for homeopathic pharmacies to supply them with the essential (unlicensed) medicines required for their patients.

 You would have to get your homeopathic medicines personally at a handful of licenced homeopathic pharmacies in Britain
Hundreds of thousands of people who currently have prescriptions filled for unlicensed homeopathic medicines will be unable to obtain their urgent medicines. The estimated 6 million users of homeopathy in Britain cannot be expected to be supplied medicines face-to-face by less than five licenced premises.

What you can do to stop this from happening!

Write to your MP and tell him or her - especially if your MP sits on the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments or is involved with Health or Pharmacy.
We are not asking to move mountains. All that needs to be done is a small change to Section 10 of the proposed new Medicines Act to allow greater freedom to dispense remedies to practitioners and could also overcome the face-to-face issue which is unworkable.
Below you will find a few helpful bullets and links to assist you in contacting your MP on this issue.

It is anticipated that the new Medicines Act will be put before the Joint Committee on Statutory Instruments for approval in late May/early June for implementation in July, so your swift action is critical!

Write to your MP: Medicines Act consolidation 2012

You can identify the name of your MP by using this website:
http://findyourmp.parliament.uk/
You can find out who sits on what committees by going to this website:
http://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/joint-select/statutory-instruments/membership/

A few helpful points that could be used in your letter.

It is not necessary or recommended to include all the text suggested here. It is critical that you personalise your letter with your own views and experiences. Overall, try to keep the letter short (a page or less), and emphasise any points that are relevant to the particular MP.

 I‚m deeply concerned a draft proposal set out by the MHRA as part of its consolidation and review of the Medicines Act 1968 could have a significant impact on my ability as a patient to access homeopathic medicines in the UK.

 In its current form section 10 of the proposal would only allow unlicensed homeopathic medicines to be bought directly from a pharmacist face-to-face, in effect outlawing the purchase of these medicines over the telephone or via online ordering. This would mean I would be deprived of the medicines that I have found to be so beneficial to my health.

 There are only five homeopathic pharmacies in the UK, so most homeopathic medicines are ordered from these specialist pharmacies either by phone or via the Internet. Therefore the enforcement of section 10 in its current form will have serious consequences for the six million people in the UK who choose to use this form of complementary medicine.

 If not revised the proposal would also have serious consequences for more than 2,000 homeopathic practitioners, many of whom would find it impossible to treat patients like myself because they can no longer obtain the appropriate homeopathic medicine.

 I understand that a central plank of government health policy is to increase patient choice. Section 10 will eliminate choice for people like me who want to be treated with homeopathy.

 I would like to call on your support in getting the Health Minister to revise slightly the proposed language of the revised Medicines Act to ensure that I have continued access to a full range of homeopathic medicines and my right to choose homeopathic treatment is maintained.
