Natural Pharmacy… Health is Better Than Wealth


 

A sliced Carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye… and YES, science now shows carrots greatly enhance blood flow to and function of the eyes.
 

A Tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. All o f the research shows tomatoes are loaded with lycopine and are indeed pure heart and blood food.
 

Grapes hang in a cluster that has the shape of the heart. Each grape looks like a blood cell and all of the research today shows grapes are also profound heart and blood vitalizing food.
 

A Walnut looks like a little brain, a left and right hemisphere, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums.  Even the wrinkles or folds on the nut are just like the neo-cortex. We now know walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.
 

Kidney Beans actually heal and help maintain kidney function and yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.
 

Celery, Bok Choy, Rhubarb and many more look just like bones. These foods specifically target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don’t have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, thus making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Hypertension Prevention and the Low Sodium Diet

Hypertension Prevention and the Low Sodium Diet

 

Blood pressure is the force exerted by circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels, and is one of many vital signs measured by doctors in a normal checkup. A blood pressure measure includes two numbers that reveal the amount of pressure on the walls of the arteries. Arteries are vessels that carry blood from the heart to other organs in the body.

 

When you have your blood pressure checked, your doctor might tell you, for example, that your blood pressure is "120 over 80."

 

The top number, or numerator, is known as your systolic blood pressure, which is the pressure in the arteries as the heart contracts and pumps blood forward. The bottom number, or denominator, is the measure of diastolic pressure in the arteries after the heart relaxes from a contraction.

 

Normal blood pressure is about 120 over 80. Blood pressure between 120 over 80 and 139 over 89 is known as "pre hypertension," and any measurement above 140 over 90 is considered high blood pressure. High blood pressure, or hypertension, is a condition that is a result of high pressure or tension in the arteries.

 

If your blood pressure is too high, you increase your risk of developing heart disease, hardening of the arteries, eye damage, and brain damage by stroke. This is why hypertension prevention is important.

Causes of Hypertension

A blood pressure increase can be due to a variety of causes. In cases of stress, such as before delivering a speech or overexerting muscles, your blood pressure reading would be naturally high.

 

Continued stress levels are unhealthy and definitely require a change of lifestyle in order to keep your blood pressure at a healthy, non-hypertension level. Unfortunately, most cases of hypertension cannot be attributed to one single cause.

 

Although we now know quite a lot about hypertension prevention, hypertension statistics reveal that less than one fifth of the five hundred million cases of hypertension are controlled through treatment.

 

According to the same hypertension statistics, those one hundred million hypertensive patients receiving some form of treatment have blood pressures linked directly to their salt content. The best treatment in these cases is a low sodium diet consisting of limiting salt to no more than 2,300 milligrams (about 1 teaspoon) of salt per day.

Low Sodium Diets

In the 1960s, scientist Lewis Dahl conducted a study of hypertension in five geographically distinct populations. He measured the subjects’ daily salt intakes and noted that blood pressure was directly related to salt consumption.

 

Since then, numerous studies have shown a direct link between salt and high blood pressure, but other factors can reduce blood pressure in some patients. An increase in potassium is one example.

 

A low sodium diet typically includes fruits, vegetables, lean meats, poultry, fish, and unprocessed grains. Hypertension patients are encouraged to avoid salty snacks such as chips and peanuts, and to use herbs and spices instead of salt to add flavor to their favorite dishes. Convenience foods and processed foods are the worst culprits in the fight against high sodium content foods.

Genetic Testing and Hypertension

Recent DNA research has identified genes associated with salt sensitivity. Genetic profiling has been used to study the causes of hypertension, particularly salt sensitivity, in rats.

 

Geneticists have compared the genes of two strains of rats that are essentially salt resistant or salt sensitive. They used their results to identify the genes that are involved in salt handling, opening the door to the identification of human genes that may indicate a predisposition to salt sensitivity.

 

Certain genetic mutations appear to increase renal (kidney) sodium re-absorption and therefore increase blood pressure. Such findings may help scientists discover new approaches in the treatment of hypertension.

 

A genetic test can determine the presence of hypertension, specifically salt-sensitive cases.

Do Not Cross your leg while sitting

 
I bet quite a few of you were like me….started to read this with your legs crossed…so hard to break this bad habit! 🙂
For those who do not understand Chinese, take a look at the photos below:
Those who often cross their legs when sitting for a long period of time, 3 unhealthy things will happen:
1 Their backbone tends to become ‘C’ shape
2 They will have neck aches and backaches on one side
3 For ladies, the shoulder will tend to slant one side causing the bra strap to slip down the slanted shoulder.
Try not to cross your legs when sitting.

Kick your Stress


First trick:
Get out of your head and into your feet
The body craves movement. Exercise really works. Let’s not think of it as exercise though. Nothing is gnarlier to the depressed person than imagining him/herself at the gym in ill fitting sweats, panting on the stair master while svelte athletes are bopping around in all directions.

As Woody Allen says, 90% of success is showing up. Once we’ve got our walking shoes on, once we get endorphins cooking, the doldrums have less power to penetrate .

Second trick:
Turn on music! Now!
I recommend that my clients have an arsenal of inspiring and fun music at their fingertips.
I have even been known to make CD’s for my clients. When we’re depressed, the smallest task feels overwhelming. . If I can kick-start someone’s joy, then I am thrilled.

Third trick:
Turn on the light and sit in the sun.
Many of us work in windowless cubicles or offices, and wonder why we feel blue.

This time of year, when the sun sets earlier, we must ‘s dark out in autumn and winter, get a light, get some sun, get some more sun. And if there is no sun in your world, then buy a full-spectrum light. Get one cheap on E-bay.

Fourth trick:
Hang out with 4-leggeds. (Unless of course, you’re allergic)
Having an animal companion near can instantly relaease oxytocin, that magical hormone that we secrete when we fall in love, give birth, or are nursing. It releases a feeling of goodwill, or trust in the world.
OK, so not all of all are blessed to be in love all the time, or be breast feeding, so I recommend my clients find other ways to bring on the joy chemical. Read on.

Fifth trick:
Change your thoughts. Right now.
We have around 60,000.00 thoughts per day. 87% of them are negative and are the same thoughts we had yesterday.

Experiencing joy is a deliberate choice. Joy takes practice. Joy is hardcore.
I use realistic affirmations, which, at times are posted all over my room. Notice I said realistic.

We must remember that affirmations don’t make something happen, they make something welcome.
People tell me, "I put an affirmation up on my bedroom wall, saying:"I am ready to meet a gorgeous, successful, charming man who will adore and worship me." It’s been 3 months. Where is he?" I tell them; "You have made yourself more open to meeting this human. Finding him is another story. Sorry."

Sixth Trick:
Follow a joyous lifestyle. Choose joyous entertainment.
find a class, a workout, anything that gets you in your body, preferably sweating a bit.

Seventh Trick:
Affirm joy with words.
Rudyard Kipling said "I am by calling a dealer in words. And words are by far the most powerful drug in the world". It may seem trite, but changing the way we speak can be extremely influential in changing our moods.

Eighth Trick:
Grab hold of a goal.
Make it a do-able one. Happiness and joy come from goals. We mustn’t put off our lives.

Ninth Trick:
Cultivate a relationship with the divine.
We are whom our higher self wanted to experience.
There is some truth to the pithy phrase: There’s no aetheists in foxholes.
Have a smidgens of faith and the world can be a gentler space.

Tenth Trick:
Choose joyous companions.
When we are depressed, we take our bored, sluggish selves wherever we go. We need distractions. We need company. We need intimacy. It is very important to be around authentic people. We need someone who believes in us. No nay-sayers!

Breathing Therapy

The nose has a left and a right side; we use both to inhale and exhale.

Actually they are different, you would be able to feel the difference.

The right side represents the sun, left side represents the moon.

During a headache, try to close your right nose and use your left nose to breathe.

In about 5 minutes, your headache will be gone. If you feel tired, just reverse, close your left nose and breathe through your right nose.

After a while, you will feel your mind is refreshed .

Right side belongs to ‘hot’, so it gets heated up easily, left side belongs to ‘cold’.

Most females breathe with their left noses, so they get ‘cooled off’ faster.

Most of the guys breathe with their right noses, they get worked up.

Do you notice the moment we wake up, which side breathes faster? Left or right? If left is faster, you will feel tired.

So, close your left nose and use your right nose for breathing, you will get refreshed quickly.

This can be taught to kids, but it is more effective when practised by adults.

I used to have bad headaches and was always visiting the doctor.

There was this period when I suffered headache literally every night, and unable to study. I took painkillers, did not work.

I decided to try out the breathing therapy here: closed my right nose and breathed through my left nose.

In less than a week, my headaches were gone! I continue the exercise for one month.

This alternative natural therapy without medication is something that I have experienced.

So, why not give it a try ?

Panasonic to Release Chemical-resistant PC for Medical Use


TechOn reported that Panasonic will release on March 10, 2009, a tablet-shaped mobile PC intended for doctors and nurses who use medical charts and medical applications software at healthcare facilities. The PC is resistant to chemicals, dust, water and shock, and it has a unique shape that makes it easy to carry. More info and a few videos after the jump.

With information technologies, such as electronic charts, becoming more and more common in medical facilities, an increasing number of doctors and nurses are using PCs and PDAs on site. However, they are using general PCs because there are very few PCs designed exclusively for medical use. And they are demanding PCs with chemical and impact resistance as well as usability such as battery life and portability, Panasonic said.
“The medical PC market is expected to grow rapidly because information technologies will be introduced in medical facilities at a faster pace because of the shortage of nurses and demands for cost reduction,” Panasonic said. “We can apply the technology that we have developed for the ‘TOUGHBOOK’ series to medical PCs.”

To enhance the chemical resistance, the company prevented corrosion caused by sterilizing alcohol and hypochlorite. This resistance, which was confirmed by tens of thousands of wiping tests, was attained by using a new surface material developed by the company.
The impact resistance complies with the “MIL-STD-810F 516.5″ standard. The substrate is protected by using a magnesium chassis inside the PC. The chassis is made of high-rigidity resin.
For dust/drip resistance, the air inlet and outlet were eliminated by employing a fanless design. In addition, intrusion of water and dust was prevented by using a waterproof sheet integrated with buttons.
The PC has some other features for medical staff. The top and bottom surfaces of the PC, for example, are designed flat so as to make it easier to wipe the PC for cleaning.
Panasonic claims that the battery life was extended to eight hours not to interrupt medical activities. It is equipped with two 2900mAh battery packs and the “ATOM,” a low-power microprocessor manufactured by Intel Corp.
The PC platform is based on the “MCA (mobile clinical assistant),” which is advocated by Intel for use in medical PCs. The MCA is a combination of hardware and applications such as a screen larger than 10 inches, pen input functionality, wireless communication via WiFi/Bluetooth, RF-ID/barcode reading functionality, a fingerprint authentication sensor and so forth.
Those functions will be supported by the PC to be released by Panasonic. It will come with a 10.4-inch screen.
There is no suggested retail price, but the expected street price is Yen 2,60,000 (Rs 1,25,679 appox). The company plans to produce 3,70,000 units per year.
