It is my intention to get into the shape I have longed to be in for so many years, I want a six pack, I want strong able arms, I want to be able to bend in any way the music or the wind inspires me to, so I will work, and I will work hard, I have tried so many times but things always got in the way, I need to find the will power to make it through anything that comes up, I think this will be a huge step towards my happiness. I want to move without restriction, I want to be confident about how others see me, I want the beautiful soul that’s inside me to be able to be seen from the outside!

Embodying what you speak of(though i would like to have a bit more flexibility) I will admit, it does wonders to my self image. But i’ve realized, some days i don’t feel comfortable with myself, and my outer image does not help my inner. What i’m saying is that just your outer image is not going to bring you that happiness. I’m sure you realize that, as you said step toward happiness. My thoughts are FULLY with you, because our bodies are meant to be kept in shape. As martha would say,”it’s a good thing.” But I would like to mention that you must work on your inner self as much (if not more) as you work on your outer self. Best of wishes. Eat right and exercise. Your thoughts affect your outer appearance as much as your actions do. Visualize yourself as you would like to be. Have a concrete picture in your mind as you would like to be. Write down your stats if you must. but make it concrete. Keep your discipline as well! Otherwise you will fall back into the same pattern. Create a new pattern for yourself. Golden crane, here i come.(lol) — Asher

What a wonderful intention !! I join you on this one! (tho I don’t want a six pack) :) As we’re going to carry these ‘earthsuits’ with us everywhere we go — we might as well have them be beautiful reflections of our Spirits!!
May I suggest – change the “want” and “need” to more present statements …

According to the Law of Attraction, as you say I CAN MOVE WITHOUT RESTRICTION, I AM CONFIDENT ABOUT HOW OTHERS SEE ME, MY BEAUTIFUL SOUL IS SEEN FROM THE OUTSIDE … then everything you need to manifest this in your life will present itself to you.

I KNOW these things are true for you –Angelica

Grats on taking the first step towards health! First: Just making the decision to make a change is a huge step. One can change from the outside in or from the inside out, both are viable and smart to do and in working to get in shape you’re doing both! Here are my insights on exercise and health and such, I hope you find them helpful:

-Drink lots of water. I’m talking a half a gallon or a gallon a day. (The easiest way to do it is to get some Crystal light from the grocery store, mix it into a half gallon pitcher then pour that pitcher into two 1-quart water bottles. They’ll go down easy!)
-Find an exercise plan that is fun first and intense second. I, for one, am addicted to Dance Dance Revolution. It’s always interesting and it’ll help you with that moving to the music that you’re looking to do.
-Eat lots of protein, about 1g/lb of body weight. It’ll help you build muscle, reduce your daily caloric intake and give you a steady source of energy through out the day.
-Get a George Foreman grill. These things are sweeeet! and they make it so much easier to eat healthy.
-Go to this website –> then click on super site. You’ll find articles to get you on track and forums to keep you on track.

My last piece of advice is hardly appropriate but I’d feel remiss if I didn’t mention it: I used to have a problem with my weight (Hovering between 215lbs and 230lbs) until I started on Prozac. Since I started I’ve dropped to a pretty steady 185lbs-190lbs. While it’s not a great idea to start on a psychotropic drug purely for the aesthetic benefits should you already be on one or need one there are a lot out there that can help you out. But I’ll repeat: Don’t start meds *just* to lose weight.

We’re all in this for you. I’m pretty well versed in sports nutrition (I think), so if you need any help setting up a diet/supplement plan give me a holler and I’ll see what I can pull out of my hat. :)


I love to play DDR, though I don’t have a version at home and I doubt my lower neighbors would appreciate my stomping on the floor, and I don’t have the money to go to the arcade and play it often, but every once in a while I’ll drive about 40 minutes out of my way to play Pump it up, it’s like DDR but every where that DDR doesn’t have an arrow, Pump it up does… I prefer it as it makes for smoother dancing, I used to play it for hours straight back in college (the days I was in shape)

thanks a lot for your advice though, I do need to drink more water, I tell myself that all the time, but it’s hard for me to have it with me, I tend to be “too busy” to get a drink…

but I’m working on it!

Macrobiotics May Very Well Be the Self-Defense of Health in Our Toxic Overloaded Society

Our caveman ancestors spent the majority of the time in gathering and hunting food. Much more significant than locating a partner, food was consistently at the forefront of the thoughts. They considered it night and day, formulating strategies that would result in the most efficient hunt and planning it. We might call the caveman’s hunt for food obsessive compulsive, if he existed in our day.

Luckily, our ancestors were educated because if they were not none people could be here today. As a matteroffact, need ordered that some of the cavern-girls take an interest in the herbs and the foods which would assist in healing. Many people consider the familiarity with herbs was instinctual and genetic.

So, in the very start herbs were considered medicine, plus it was discovered that food might be employed to produce a desired effect. It did not take really miss our ancestors to determine that there was a varied diet prerequisite for good health. The one thing modern man has been doing is enhance it, and choose what our early ancestors already knew. Over time, occasionally by injury and by experience we’ve learned:

* Vitamin C prevents scurvy – sailors within the 18th century received lemon juice or lime
* In the 19th century Naturopaths brought focus on food and the way it enjoyed a component in nutritional treatment
* Fasting became known as a method to help the body cure itself
* Nutritional specialists started by using food interactions to treat particular conditions and signs,
* By the midst of the 20th century, Researchers assembled an inventory of minerals and proteins, carbohydrates, fats plus vitamins, which became known as essentials to health and life.
* More than 40 nutrients were found, including 13 vitamins
* It was discovered that minerals were wanted for healthy body function

From the 60s, Stanford chemistry professor Linus Pauling discussed making the best molecular environment within the brain by providing the right concentration of vitamins. He called this therapy orthomolecular medicine, and doctors started to treat patients with nutritional supplements and special diets, in accordance with the individual’s need.

These doctors of orthomolecular medicine started to prescribe large doses of vitamins to fix nutritional deficiencies which they found were variables in a large number of mental and physical illnesses. From there nutrition therapy developed into a far more profound treatment that got into consideration the individual need, termed holistic health care.

Subsequently macrobiotics’ doctrine sprung into action, which will be a fundamental belief that everyone is entitled to become healthy enough to savor life to its fullest extent. The thought mainly comes from China and Tibet, where it’s thought that mankind is the main environment and cosmos, which as a result, through natural means we need to manage to live life to its complete potential, helped by a diet which encourages physical, mental, psychological and spiritual health.

Now, we’ve begun to accept the idea that exhaustion, susceptibility to skin ailments, colds and other viruses, lethargy and other serious illnesses are only part of society and our stressful life. It’s become the standard of idea in our western society where food is abundant, where we’re overfed and undernourished but it generally devoid of any nutritional value.

The modern world has placed added burdens on our bodies which were completely unknown to early man. Some of these are:

* Pesticides
* Additives
* Hormones
* Depleted soil (minerals are not as rich, therefore food grown in the soil is not as nutritious)
* Animals which graze on depleted soil
* Alcohol
* Tobacco
* Drugs
* Stress
* Food manufacturers now add: colorants, flavors, preservatives, emulsifiers, antibiotics, growth promoters
* Environmental pollution…and well, the list could go on, but you get the point.

What the above means is that we need nutritional therapy more than we’ve ever needed it, and it needs to be a thoughtful choice, not something we leave to chance. We now have dozens of laboratory tests which can measure everything about a person’s body from sugar intolerance and blood levels of vitamins and minerals, to thyroid function and levels of insulin. In this case modern technology is on your side.

We can now be scientific, if we desire, on what we lack and what we need to do to get back on track. For instance, we know that research suggests that supplements can treat certain conditions. For instance neuralgia or carpal tunnel syndrome suggest a deficiency of the B-vitamins. Tyrosine, an amino acid has been very helpful in treating depression and anxiety.

The first thing a nutritional therapist will do is test for deficiencies of the following vitamins and minerals:

* Vitamin A (retinol, carotene), B1 thiamine, B2 riboflavin, B3 niacin, B5 pantothenic acid and B6 pyridoxine
* B12, folic acid and biotin
* Vitamin C and Vitamin D
* Vitamin E, vitamin F, Vitamin H and vitamin K
* Vitamin M, vitamin P and vitamins T and U
* Minerals, such as calcium, chlorine, chromium and copper
* Iodine, iron, magnesium and molybdenum
* Potassium, selenium, sodium, sulphur and zinc

A healthy diet is one where the food you eat contains all the nutrients needed by the body to grow, repair and to function normally on a day to day basis. A balanced diet, filled with variety is one that should give plenty of energy to function at the highest level, free from disease and malaise.

The Macrobiotic Philosophy is one where disease is prevented rather than treated, and where happiness can flourish rather than the preoccupation and fear over our state of health. It also helps to strengthen the immune system and enables you to maintain good health.

It was written thousands of years ago in the book Nei Ching: “it is hardest to treat someone who has become rebellious [sick]-a wise doctor helps those who are well and have not become rebellious.” It takes commitment and practice to consistently eat for health, but as Macrobiotic practitioners say “…when it becomes effortless and you are genuinely enjoying all the food you eat, then you have become macrobiotic.”

What is mitosis? This is the technical word for the nuclear division of a cell. When this core of this cell divides it results in two identical sets of chromosomes. This is followed by cytokinesis, and the results are two separate cells called daughter cells. The phases of mitosis are prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. What is mitosis, it is cell structure that splits to become two chromosomes, and has four stages. After which they have for the most part equal shares of that components of that cell. This happens only in eukaryotic cells, and it is varied with different species.

Learn about What is Mitosis and the Phases?

The first phase is called prophase. This is where the chromosomes that are typically spread out in the nucleus start to condense and forma a tight ball. Then the molecules of DNA of the chromosomes begin to interact with proteins and enzymes that help with replicating the genes. In genetic material, the nucleus is called chromatin and is a loosely bundled coil. The genetic duplication having already been done now has two sister chromatids. The chromosomes are visible with a high magnification light microscope. The centrosomes are close to the nucleus they consist of a pair of centrioles. Near the end, of this stage the element that encloses the cytoskeleton and nucleus will disappear. The cytoskeleton will be transformed into a spindle apparatus and works to pull the duplicated chromosomes apart in the anaphase.

Know About Steps of Mitosis

The mitosis phase two is called the metaphase, and this comes from the Greek meaning “after.” The centrosomes will pull the chromosomes through the centromeres toward the opposite ends of the cell. In this stage of mitosis, the chromosomes of the divided cell will line up, and the spindle framework will coordinate them. They are positioned symmetrically on the metaphase plate at the center of the original cell. The alignment is even and is caused by the pulling powers generated by the kinetochores on opposite sides.

Phase three is called the anaphase. There are two things that happen in this phase first the proteins that have bound the sister chromatids are cleaved. The spindle framework will pull these chromatids apart separating the chromosomes. They will develop into nuclei that are two daughter cells that are totally identical, as well as identical to the parent cells. This is sometimes in two stages called early and late anaphase. The early is defined as separation of sister chromatids. The late phase is the elongation of the microtubules and when the chromosomes are pulled apart further. The end of this stage is when they identical copies have succeeded in separating.

The final phase is called telophase which means the “end.” This is the opposite of the prophase. What is mitosis in this stage? When the chromosomes begin to move to the spindle pole they will uncoil and spread out. This spindle was made of the cytoskeleton and is deconstructed. The membrane is formed around the chromosomes, and the mitosis is complete, but the division of the cell is not.

Now you might know there are 6 steps which mitosis will have, check this article to find these steps in details.

Is Black Poop in Adults Dangerous?

Black poop in adults isn’t the huge cause for concern that you’re probably making it out to be. Sometimes, things just don’t work the way that they did when you were younger. At 21, you could probably get by on 2 hours of sleep after partying all night, eat a bunch of junk food all day, maybe take a pain killer to help with the hangover and then you’d do it all over again.

Continue With the Things that You Might Be Using On a Daily Basis

In order for a product to exude a specific scent, it needs to be treated with chemicals. These chemicals can aggravate your condition since they can be quite irritating especially if your skin comes in contact with them on a daily basis.

For this reason, it is wise to stay away from scented products. These products include genital deodorants may it be in powder form or in the form of wipes. The bottom line is that all of them are treated with the same irritating batch of chemicals. Even sanitary pads and panty liners are not safe. It doesn’t even matter if they didn’t make you itch before. You need to stay away from them during the course of the infection. Bubble baths are not recommended as well. Stick with taking a shower.

Move On to Your Diet

Since Candidiasis can be caused by a suppressed immune system, you need to eat those foods that can boost your body’s natural defense mechanism. You should also work on eating relaxing and calming foods in order to help with the stress that you might be feeling.

When it comes to the food group that can enhance your body’s immune system, nothing beats fruits and veggies that are rich with Vitamin C. The greener the vegetable, the more Vitamin C it has. You can also choose to take Vitamin C supplements if it is not contraindicated. Calming foods include teas and hot coco. You don’t have to drink tea on a regular basis though. You can reach for a cup whenever you are feeling stressed.

It is also wise to limit your intake of acid-forming foods such as corn and coffee. You can still eat them on a regular basis. However, eating them daily is not really recommended.

The Yoghurt Remedy

For this remedy, any other yoghurt will do. However, it needs to be plain and fresh. This is why it is best to use homemade yoghurt. If you can’t make one yourself though, you can always go to the supermarket. Dip your tampon into the yoghurt. Make sure that at least three-fourths of it is dipped. Put it on for a couple of minutes and remove.

Garlic and Apple Cider Vinegar Douche

Get 1 clove of fresh garlic. Always remember to use the real thing. Garlic powder or pre-minced garlic won’t do. Get the brand of apple cider vinegar that you like and proceed with making the mixture. Mix the clove of garlic to 2 cups of apple cider vinegar. Let the mixture sit for a couple of minutes in order for the essence of the garlic to be squeezed out. Use it as a douche.

There are numerous reasons for making isometrics your exercise of choice. There is no equipment necessary for an isometric workout. This reduces the risk of injury linked to weights or other gym machines. Because there is no need for equipment, there are no worries associated with storing said equipment, and the money saved is also a huge advantage.

First of all, you should know the differences between isometric and isotonic exercise, check here out.

People of any age can do these exercises since there are no complex steps. They are as simple as contracting a muscle and holding that contraction for 10-15 seconds. Even those with disabilities are able to make use of these exercises. Isometrics is often prescribed as part of injury rehabilitation programs. The exercises can be performed close to the injury while still avoiding it, promoting more rapid healing.

An isometric workout takes far less time and can be done wherever the person happens to be- the car, at work, or watching TV. This is especially beneficial to those who find it difficult to set aside 30-60 minutes each day for exercise. These short little bursts of exercise are certainly beneficial and can be the difference between enough exercise or none. For those who can find the time, longer sessions have been found to improve digestion and lower cholesterol.

Isometrics increase metabolism, and who among us wouldn’t benefit from that? Lean muscle tissue is built while excess fat is burned. Lean muscle requires more calories to sustain than does fat.

Isometric exercise is one of the few activities that we can take along into advanced age. A definite advantage to this is that isometrics will improve bone density and protect against osteoporosis.

Combining isometrics with weight training and a healthy diet is an excellent combination for overall body health.

This question is now the trending topic for teenagers who are now exposed to pre-marital sex. Can precum get a girl pregnant? Precum is the informal name for Cowper’s fluid. Studies show that this clear and viscous fluid is produced by the Cowper’s gland and of the prostate gland. It is excreted by the penis upon arousal, kind of what the female also secretes when aroused. Medically speaking, Cowper’s fluid or precum is naturally responsible for lubricating and preparing a much more adaptable environment for the sperms before they enter a female’s vagina.

So how can you get pregnant from precum? Basically stated on Actforlibraries precum alone cannot make a girl pregnant, but there are some cases which it is somehow responsible in getting a girl pregnant. How? Try to closely observe what happens with the following situation. Boy has two different girlfriends. Boy meets up with girlfriend number 1, decides to do the deed (have sex ) using the withdrawal method, upon arousal boy starts to secrete Cowper’s fluid or precum inside girlfriend number 1 and pulls out before ejaculation.

After a while, boy left and goes to girlfriend number 2 and also used the same withdrawal method. Boy again upon arousal starts to secrete precum fluid inside girlfriend number 2 however, this time after secreting precum, girlfriend number 2 decided to use protection. Boy ejaculates inside girlfriend number 2 but uses a condom for protection. Now, here is the question, which girlfriend would most likely get pregnant?

Here is the conclusion to this little situation. Girlfriend 1 didn’t use protection, putting her at higher risks for getting pregnant. But can girlfriend 2 get pregnant even though she decides to use protection? The answer is also a Yes! Because even though girlfriend number 2 uses protection before the boy ejaculates, there were some traces of sperm left on the boy’s urethra which was transferred to girlfriend number 2 during the secretion of precum fluid and by that period they still weren’t using any protection.

And so, can precum get a girl pregnant? Again the answer is Yes, because in some cases precum acts as a vessel to transfer the remaining traces of sperm into the girl and possibly get her pregnant. It is only one of the few mistakes made by teenagers who are involved in pre-marital sex. The most common is the lack of education regarding such matters and not using any protection. There are other major issues involved besides getting the girl pregnant, issues that should be taken seriously.

Through the secretion of precum fluid, since it acts as a vessel and naturally come in contact with the female organ, there is also the possibility of acquiring sexually transmitted diseases or STDs and even HIV. But most teenager’s involved in pre-marital sex don’t know these types of information. At present, teenagers are so hard to control. They are so unpredictable and wild that they couldn’t care less about such matters. Teenagers should be wise and brave enough to consult doctors to help guide them and educate them with these matters. It would help prevent teenagers making such mistakes like entering parenthood at an early age. Some even resort to abortion due to unwanted pregnancies and risks of them getting HIV are at a higher rate. Teen agers have the ability to make the right decisions. They just have to learn how to strongly decide doing what is right from what is wrong.

Q: Hi, have you heard of Mullen to treat post nasal drip or Tonsilloliths? If so, do you have any feedback? I have had tonsil stones for about 6 years and even though I have not had one in about 2 months, I have post nasal drip which I think is affecting my breath. I went to an herbalist and he suggests mullein. Ill let you know the results. Thanks for this tip.

A: This advice seems quite sound and I agree! I am a final year undergrad student in molecular microbiology and so the lymphatic system is something I have learned a lot about. My lifestyle has gone down the tubes (little exercise, too much alcohol, stress) and I have began to see tonsil stones for the first time! I can easily conclude the relationship with alcohol and my stones, as they start to pop up after a few binge drinking days (which needs to stop for many other reasons apart from smelly stones!). This advice is great, and has only helped to motivate me. Your body will definitely be more likely to create smelly stones if your overall health is down, I am considering these my warning! Healthy diet and exercise for myself are not just an idea anymore, but a necessity to get rid of stink breath.

Q: Hi, just a quick question. I have constant bad breath and my ENT diagnosed allergic rhinitis and mentioned some “bacteria” on the tonsils. I have a lump in the back of my throat and post nasal but no such stones to speak of. Do you think it is a “diet” thing I need to change?

A: My personal experience is that once you start to eat healthier and engaging in more healthier activities such as yoga and tai chi, these problems start to go away. You harmonize your body with these activities and conditions like these heal.

I am quite paranoid that tonsil stones harbor a lot of nasty bacteria (and viruses?) (encapsulated in bio-film and/or mineral deposits?). I was wondering if you accidentally consumed one, i.e. eating something that caused it to dislodge and then swallowed it, could it spread infection elsewhere? Or make you sick to your stomach?

The Next:

Over the weekend I kept tasting cigarettes (I don’t smoke and haven’t done for over 10 years). I had it every now and then and then everything I drank tasted of them. After a weekend with a sore throat and earache I decided to investigate and found some stones in my left tonsil. I removed these immediately but since have had a funny taste in my mouth constantly. I am very conscious of it and am sure my breath must smell awful. Is this normal. It no longer tastes of cigarettes it is just disgusting. After reading how bad tonsil stones smell I did smell one (who could resist after reading that) and wonder if it is a bit psychological now! I have felt lumps again today but can’t see anything yet. I have made no changes to diet or exercise so assume it must be some kind of bacteria or virus being fought “ my son and husband recently had hand foot and mouth but I didn’t get it “ could it be that???

However, unlike macrophages, neutrophils circulate in the blood. To get out of it and into the tissue, neutrophils require a specific stimulus.

Normal Neutrophil Count

The counting or calculation of white blood cells is termed as ANC or Absolute neutrophil count. Abundant of white blood cells are called neutrophils, these cells are like fighters that protect a body from various infections. The normal neutrophil count is 2500 to 6000; the ANC is calculated by the number of white blood cells and the percentage of polys and bands.

Therefore, lumbar puncture forms contraindicated in which situations until a neurological organization are set out there. In these types of conditions CSF can be obtained through ventricular puncture. Sometimes when a good LP cannot remain completed or both the lumbar space is destroyed, CSF can be obtained through coeternal puncture.

Both the immune system forms a good impressive protecting structure consisting of refined blood muscle and leukocytes, and the protein, tissues, and body organs that contain, bring, or allow these people. Leukocytes come in both types: phagocytes, which are the very first destroyers of international bacterium, and lymphocytes, that remember previous invaders (antigens) and also defend against them. One common phagocyte forms Europhile that fights greases. Brought up levels of Europhile beneath a blood taste indicate to medical that there’s bacterial condition in the frame. Lymphocytes can be either B muscle, which access antigens, or also T cells, that are sent by the B muscle to destroy both the antigens.
