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.

NOROVIRUS WHAT YOU CAN DO TO TRY AND AVOID IT

It's this time of year right through till spring that we have the dreaded 'Winter vomiting virus' NOROVIRUS. Like most viruses its constantly changing it's structure so like the common cold, it's impossible to develop an immunity to it. I can vouch what it's like to have it, as I have suffered this nasty little bug more than once and on one occasion had to be hopitalized. The article below from the Daily Mail gives some tips on how to repel it. Once you do have it, it just a case of supportive measures until the virus burns itself out. 

Here are a few of my tips to cope with it.

It's important to keep hydrated as you do lose a lost of fluid especially if you have both diarrhoea and vomiting, of course it's difficult to keep liquids down and as the condition goes on you do lose essential electrolytes (salts) as you become low in electrolytes this upsets the body's chemistry so makes nausea and gagging worse, so these must be replaced. Now you can buy sachets of replacement electrolytes such as Dioralyte these can be expensive but it is worth keeping a few of those in your first aid box, alternatively plain (non diet) bottled lemonade is good, it has the right balance of sugar and salts and if vomited back up doesn't stain and it freshens the mouth. It's important to take small sips of fluid and not gulp it down and small sips are more likely to stay down and be absorbed.

There are a few Homoeopathic remedies that come to mind providing they fit the individuals symptoms such as Nux Vomica, Arsen Alb, Ipecacuanha, and taken in 30C potency.

Even the placing of a cold compress over the forehead can help alleviate the nausea.

The condition generally lasts from 24 to 48 hours, but remember you will still be infectious for a few days. Afterwards you may still feel a bit raw and sore and personally pineapple juice is a natural anti-inflammatory  and helps soothe an upset digestive system. To stimulate the appetite Lime either in the form of an aromatherapy treatment and can be used in a diffuser, alternatively lime juice cordial does help stimulate the appetite.

PLEASE READ THE GUIDELINES BELOW

ARTICLE FROM THE DAILY MAIL BELOW


How to repel the dreaded winter vomiting bug, the norovirus, as number of cases soar

  • More than 800,000 cases reported since the summer
  • The figures are up 83 per cent on last year 



There is a huge number of cases of norovirus, or winter vomiting bug, this year. 
More than 800,000 cases have been confirmed since the summer, an 83 per cent increase on the same period last year. 
The real figure is likely to be much higher given that many cases are not reported.
Preventative measures: The norovirus is easily spread through contaminated hands and surfaces so hygiene is key
Preventative measures: The norovirus is easily spread through contaminated hands and surfaces so hygiene is key

How can the spread of the infection be contained?

The infection spreads easily from person to person through contaminated hands and surfaces, so hygiene is critical. It is particularly crucial for children and those handling food. 
Those who have had the infection must remain isolated for 48 hours after recovery to prevent others being infected. We have already seen hospital wards and schools closed after outbreaks. This is an effort to contain the virus and curb a potentially larger epidemic.

Why does it happen every year?

Norovirus is no different from other viruses that circulate at this time of year, but it is incredibly infectious. 
 
It is the UK’s most common cause of gastroenteritis, and spreads easily when everyone is cooped up inside during the winter. 
One problem is that people do not develop long-lasting immunity  – you are protected for only a few months, so next winter you can easily get it again.

Is it a serious illness?

For most people, absolutely not, as it lasts for only two or three days and causes vomiting, some diarrhoea, fever and malaise. 
Most people recover with no medical intervention. But for babies and the elderly, dehydration is the problem: keeping up fluid intake can be difficult, and occasionally a stay in hospital will be necessary.

What’s the best treatment if you’re otherwise healthy?

Rest and isolation. Sip small amounts of water or suck ice cubes for steady fluid intake. Take the anti-sickness medicine domperidone, which you can buy over the counter, and control fever with paracetamol.

Do I need to contact my GP?

Only if there is any sign of dehydration. For sick children, speak to the doctor about medicine that can be prescribed for severe vomiting, and paracetamol suppositories to control a temperature if oral medicine is not tolerated.

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.
