I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

Hmmm... CAN A GLASS OF RED WINE PREVENT YOU FROM PUTTING ON WEIGHT

Before you go reaching for the bottle,  research is only suggesting a potential for this. Much more beneficial its the active ingredients that provide anti inflammatory effects etc.

Story is below is from the Daily Mail, interesting that this seems to be recent research however, research on Piceatannol has been ongoing for a number of years and findings were know about its benefits over ten years ago. It's long been known about it's anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory benefits and its for this reason its beneficial too you.

Piceatannol
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

red wine. Astringin, a piceatannol glucoside, is also in red wine.
Health effects

LMP2A, a viral protein-tyrosine kinase implicated in leukemia, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and other diseases associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), were found in a 1989 study to be blocked by picetannol in vitro.In 2003, this prompted research interest in piceatannol as an anti-cancer and anti-EBV drug.

Injected in rats, piceatannol shows a rapid glucuronidation and a poor bioavailability, accordig to a 2006 study.

A 2012 Purdue University study found that fat cells in culture, in the presence of piceatannol, alters the timing of gene expressions, gene functions and insulin action, resulting the delay or complete inhibition of adipogenesis. The study suggest piceatannol has the potential to control obesity.

Note the research says has the potential, the best way to avoid getting obese is still the original and best i.e. eat a well balanced diet and regular exercise


How a glass of red wine could PREVENT you from putting on weight




Red wine contains piceatannol, which delays the generation of young fat cells
Drinking red wine could actually reduce your chance of piling on the pounds, according to a new scientific study.
The research shows enjoying the odd glass of Merlot may be less of a guilty pleasure and have an additional benefit.
Scientists have revealed a compound found in red wine can help control body fat.
The substance, called piceatannol, delays the generation of young fat cells and prevents them from growing into mature fat cells.
The compound blocks insulin’s ability to activate genes that carry out further stages of fat cell formation.
The agent found in wine is also thought to protect the body from heart and neurodegenerative diseases and cancer.
The groundbreaking research was carried out at Purdue University, Indiana, USA.
Lead researcher Dr Kee-Hong Kim said: 'In the presence of piceatannol you can see delay or complete inhibition of young fat cells.
'Piceatannol alters the timing of gene expressions, gene functions and insulin action during adipogenesis - the process in which young fat cells become mature fat cells.'
Dr Kim, assistant professor of food science at the university, added: 'We are now testing our idea using animal model obesity to see if it has the same benefical functions.
'We need to work on improving the stability and solubility of piceatannol to create a biological effect.'
The compound is similar in structure to resveratrol - a supplement sold in the UK last year to combat disease - and is also found in grapes, blueberries and passion fruit.
The research was published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry.

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

PSYCHIC QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

IS IT REALLY POSSIBLE TO FORECAST THE FUTURE AND OTHER QUESTIONS?

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
