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.

THE WONDEROUS BENEFITS OF TEA

TEA





All tea types, green, black, oolong come from the same tea plant, Camellia sinensis. The leaves are processed differently. Green tea leaves are not fermented; they are withered and steamed. Black tea and oolong tea leaves undergo crushing and fermenting processes. 

All teas from the Camellia plant are rich in polyphenols, antioxidants that detoxify cell-damaging free radicals in the body. Tea has about eight to 10 times the polyphenols found in fruit and vegetables 

Quercitin, kaempferol, and epigallocatechin are just three among over 4,000 compounds classified as flavonoids these are naturally occurring plant pigments, Among the many benefits attributed to flavonoids are reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, asthma, and stroke. They may play a special role in protecting the brain. Flavonoids, like other antioxidants, do their work in the body by corralling cell-damaging free radicals and metallic ions. Studies have found that certain flavonoids have antihistamine, antimicrobial, memory- and even mood-enhancing properties. 

Research shows that tea is high beneficial to our health and suggests that regular tea drinkers people who drink two cups or more a day have less heart disease and stroke and recover from heart attacks faster. Tea also helps soothe stressand keep us relaxed. One British study found that people who drank black tea were able to de-stress faster than those who drank a fake tea substitute. The tea drinkers had lower levels of cortisol, a stress hormone which is responsible for the detrimental effects of stress raising the blood pressure etc. A type of disease-fighting flavonoid and antioxidant, Catechins are the keys to tea's health benefits. The longer you brew the tea, the more flavonoids you'll get.

ANTIBIOTICS MADE FROM SWEAT!



The skin has several functions, one is to secrete sebum that oily substance on your skin, this is to help keep the skin moisturised by trapping moisture and forming a barrier together with sweat known as the 'Acid Mantle' The Acid Mantle is slightly acidic and acts as a Bacteriastat to inhibit bacteria. 

What we put on the skin can throw it off balance, many people use soap and water, well thats fine for your body, but our face has more sebaceous glands, is more exposed to the elements and more open to micro-organisms. Why not soap and water? well soap is alkaline and remember the acid mantle is slightly acidic, this maintains an environment where micro-organisms are less likely to multiply and if you use an alkaline product you will strip away this protective layer, making the skin more susceptible to infection. Because our sebaceous glands tend to be more active on the face, and this increase of sebum in nature's moisturiser, there may be more of a tendency for them to become blocked, if infection enters the blocked pores the result it a spot. There are a number of cleansing bars on the market and water activated cleansers around for those of you who like the feel of water on your face.

So it comes as no surprise to me scientists are working on a "a so called new" antibiotic made from sweat, emmmm I think nature thought of this all by itself first lol!



ARTICLE BELOW FROM THE DAILY MAIL

The latest weapon against superbugs? An antibiotic made from human SWEAT 

  • Chemical in sweat called dermcidin kills harmful germs
  • Is activated in salty, slightly acidic perspiration
  • May now be used to develop infection-fighting drugs

An antibiotic created from sweat could fend off hospital superbugs and deadly strains of TB, researchers say.
A chemical called dermcidin is activated in salty, slightly acidic perspiration and perforates the cell membrane of harmful microbes, eventually killing them.
Scientists hope to develop new drugs based on the molecule to control a host of bacteria after uncovering its atomic structure.
Dermcidin, a chemical that is activated in salty, slightly acidic perspiration, could fend off superbugs and deadly strains of TB
Dermcidin, a chemical that is activated in salty, slightly acidic perspiration, could fend off superbugs and deadly strains of TB
Dr Ulrich Zachariae, of the University of Edinburgh, said: 'Now that we know in detail how these natural antibiotics work, we can use this to help develop infection-fighting drugs that are more effective than conventional antibiotics.'
About 1,700 types of natural antibiotics are known to exist, and researchers, writing in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, investigated how they work.
They found that dermcidin is spread by sweat glands, so if our skin becomes injured by a small cut, a scratch or the sting of a mosquito they rapidly and efficiently kill invaders.
 


    These substances, known as antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), are more effective in the long term than traditional antibiotics as germs are not capable of quickly developing resistance against them.
    The antimicrobials can attack the bugs' Achilles' heel, their cell wall, which cannot be modified quickly to resist attack. Because of this, AMPs have great potential to form a new generation of antibiotics.
    The compound found in sweat is active against many well known pathogens such as tuberculosis (above)

    Through a combination of techniques, scientists were able to determine the atomic structure of the molecular channel.
    The researchers found the molecular channel of dermcidin is unusually long, permeable and adaptable and can adapt to extremely variable types of membrane, enabling it to fend off bacteria and fungi at the same time.
    The compound is active against many well known pathogens such as tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and hospital superbug Staphylococcus aureus.
    Multi-resistant strains of Staphylococcus aureus, in particular, have become an increasing threat for patients, leading to life threatening diseases such as sepsis and pneumonia.
    Added Dr Zachariae: 'Antibiotics are not only available on prescription. Our own bodies produce efficient substances to fend off bacteria, fungi and viruses.'

    WHY YOU MUST PAY ATTENTION TO HOW MUCH SALT YOU CONSUME, CUTTING SALT COULD SAVE THOUSANDS OF LIVES


    WHAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT SALT

    We should all know by now how too much salt in our diet raises our blood pressure but have you stopped to ask how and what are the dangers?


    Well our bodies are kept in balance by the Hypothalamus (An area in the brain its job is to maintain homeostasis within the body). It does this in a number of ways and its a bit akin to a laboratory constantly analysing our blood, checking if we have the correct amount of hormones, is the blood the right consistency, does it have the correct balance of salts to maintain body function. Salt, sodium chloride to give it its proper name is necessary along with other salts like Potassium are necessary for a variety of functions and nerve function being one of them. It is through the interaction between Potassium and Sodium that our nerves work and are able to pass signals down through our nerves from our brains to our muscles etc. If this balance is upset then our bodies won't work correctly. 

    Now if you are eating a high salt diet (Sodium) and you know what happens if you eat something very salty how do you feel? Very thirsty I shouldn't wonder and this is because the hypothalamus has noticed there is too much sodium in the blood, so the first thing it does is to alert the body and make us thirsty and cause us to drink more fluid in an effort to dilute the blood. At the same time the Hypothalamus causes the pituitary gland to release Vasopressin (Anti diuretic hormone) this is circulated in the blood stream and targets the kidneys not to filter out so much liquid in the blood as waste (Urine becomes more concentrated so you don't pass as much). These two actions generate more blood volume in an effort to dilute the concentration of Sodium (more liquid part of the blood).

    Cue the heart, now your poor heart has more work to do, you've upped its work load putting more strain on it. You've still got the same amount of arteries and veins but have more liquid for your heart to pump through, this means your left Ventricle of your heart is under strain thus the action of forcing all this volume of fluid through the same amount of vessels raises the blood pressure. So first and foremost high blood pressure strains the heart and the heart being a muscle, like any other muscle will enlarge to cope with the work. Now the kidneys, they filter impurities and toxins out of the body through a series of tiny tubules called Nephrons, these tiny vessels are very delicate and only one cell thick and thus very fragile. With the raised pressure of all this excess fluid in the blood being forced harder through the circulation, these tiny vessels are easily damaged.

    As we get older our arteries, which are a series of elastic muscular tubes, become less elastic, think of washing a pair of knickers hundreds of times eventually the elastic gets spent doesn't it? well its like this with the arteries. Because they have lost this elasticity they cannot cope so well with an increased blood pressure and if these arteries happen to be in the brain, the result can be a burst blood vessel hence one type of stroke. Now couple this with someone who has had a fatty diet eating lots of saturated fats. That fat circulates in the blood stream and just like a sink drain that gets blocked when you try to pour fat down it regularly, the same thing happens in an artery. Fat sticks to the artery walls forming plaques, blood cells become sticky and before you know it you have a clot forming. If this clot travels to the brain you have the other type of stroke. A stroke is where the brain is starved of oxygen because blood flow is restricted to an area and that area of the brain is damaged. If the clot forms in the leg we have a Deep Vein Thrombosis, if it forms in the lungs we have a Pulmonary Thrombosis and if we have a clot in the circulation of the heart we have a Coronary Thrombosis. Obviously too furred up arteries will raise blood pressure too as the heart will have to work harder to push all that volume of blood through narrowed blood vessels.

    So now you know why too much salt is bad for you and the worst culprits for harbouring salt are processed foods. Start reading labels and become familiar with recommended daily allowances, you may just save your health a whole lot of trouble

    In the UK, the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of Salt is 6 grams for an adult, 1 gram for a baby under 12 months old and between 2-6 grams of salt for a child up until their 11th birthday.


    http://www.eatwell.gov.uk/healthydiet/fss/salt/howmuchsalteat/


    In the US, the RDA is 2.3 g of sodium, or 5.75 g of salt, since to calculate the amount of salt from sodium you should multiply by 2.5.

    http://www.health.gov/dietaryguidelines/dga2005/recommendations.htm

    Article below from the Daily Mail.


    Cutting salt could save 20,000 lives each year in UK

    • Too much salt increases risk of high blood pressure, which can lead to heart attacks and stroke
    • Adults should consume no more than 6g a day, but on average UK men have 9.7g and women have 7.7g

    Reducing the amount of salt in our diets could save nearly 20,000 lives in the UK every year, according to researchers.
    Doctors say deaths from heart disease would fall dramatically if consumers paid attention to food labels. 
    Yet most Britons have no idea how much salt they consume or what the maximum recommended levels are.
    Don't add salt: Our diets are already salt-heavy with 80% coming from processed foods
    Don't add salt: Our diets are already salt-heavy with 80% coming from processed foods
    The recommended maximum daily intake for adults is 6g in the UK, although just last month the World Health Organisation revised this down to 5g. 
    Yet according to figures from the British Heart Foundation, men consume around 9.7g a day, while women have 7.7g.
    Now researchers at three universities, including Harvard Medical School, have revealed the dramatic effect reducing salt could have on death rates by using computer models.
    They estimated that reducing salt intake to 6g (or 2,300mg of sodium) would save 500,000 to 850,000 lives in the U.S over the next decade.
    'No matter how we look at it, the story is the same – there will be huge benefits in reducing sodium,' said study author Dr Pam Coxson, from UCSF.
    The British consumer group Consensus Action on Salt & Health said reducing the UK's daily intake to 6g could save around 17,500 deaths from heart attacks and strokes a year.
    If food labels only contain sodium levels, multiply this number by 2.5 to get salt content
    If food labels only contain sodium levels, multiply this number by 2.5 to get the salt content
    British GP Ian Campbell, medical director of charity Weight Concern, told Mail Online: 'Salt is a big problem in the UK too. It's a silent killer. Over time consuming too much of it increases the risk of high blood blood pressure, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.
    'About 80 per cent of our salt intake comes from processed foods, so it can be difficult to avoid.
    'Many people are unaware of where salt is hidden, such as bread, soups, ready meals, even breakfast cereals and mayonnaise.
    'The Government approach has been to encourage food manufacturers to modify the amount of salt in their products. There has been a reduction but it is taking too long. The Food Standards Agency should consider setting mandatory maximum levels for salt.'
    Victoria Taylor, Senior Dietitian at the British Heart Foundation, added: 'Eating too much salt may raise your blood pressure and having high blood pressure increases your risk of developing coronary heart disease.
    'The Government has worked with the food industry to reduce the amount of salt in our food and make labels clearer. But there is still work to be done by everyone because the majority of Brits are still consuming more salt than they should be.'

    NEW TREATMENT FOR DEPRESSION


    I came across this article in the Daily Mail today, whereby low energy lasers are used instead of needles in acupuncture to alleviate the symptoms of depression. Unlike conventional drug treatment, where patients may suffer side effects, there are none with this form of acupuncture. It's useful too where people have a needle phobia and there is no risk of infection as the skin is not punctured


    Beam of light that can help banish black dog


    Antidepressants are the most common form of treatment for depression, and NHS prescriptions for the drugs are at a record high.
    But latest figures suggest only 50 to 65 per cent of patients who take the pills notice an improvement in symptoms.
    And there is a risk of side-effects such as nausea, poor sleep, diarrhoea, constipation and erectile problems.
    Laser acupuncture involves stimulating the pressure points targeted in traditional acupuncture, but using low-energy lasers rather than needles
    Laser acupuncture involves stimulating the pressure points targeted in traditional acupuncture, but using low-energy lasers rather than needles
    But could laser acupuncture be an effective way to treat the problem, without side-effects?
    That’s the suggestion emerging from a small new Australian study, which found patients with depression reported fewer symptoms and better mood after 12 sessions of the treatment.
    Laser acupuncture involves stimulating the pressure points targeted in traditional acupuncture, but using low-energy lasers rather than needles.
    More than three million people in the UK use the ancient Chinese medicine as a treatment for everything from chronic pain to infertility.
    It is also available on the NHS: under guidelines from NICE (the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence), acupuncture can be given for the treatment of lower back pain.


    Western medicine is at a loss to explain the benefits of the needle therapy.
    The most popular theory is that it stimulates the release of ‘feel good’ chemicals called endorphins, though there is only a small amount of evidence to back this up.
    Using lasers could be safer and more popular than the conventional treatment, as they do not carry a risk of infection and are more acceptable to patients with a needle phobia.
    To test the treatment, researchers at the University of New South Wales and the University of Sydney recruited 47 men and women aged 18 to 50 with a history of depression.
    Half were given the laser therapy twice a week for four weeks, then once a week for another four weeks.
    The beam was powerful enough to stimulate acupuncture points on the back, neck and trunk but not to cause burns or damage the skin.
    Latest figures suggest only 50 to 65 per cent of patients who take antidepressants notice an improvement in symptoms
    Latest figures suggest only 50 to 65 per cent of patients who take antidepressants notice an improvement in symptoms
    Acupuncture points are the areas on the body that, according to Chinese medicine, need to be stimulated in order to restore good health.
    The rest of the group were given a ‘dummy’ laser, which shone a light on the skin but contained little or no laser energy.
    The researchers, who were from the department of psychiatry at the universities, measured the response in terms of how much symptoms improved on a recognised depression register, the Hamilton Depression Rating Scale.
    The lower the score, the better a patient’s mental health.
    The laser group average score dropped from 14.14 to 9.8, while the placebo group saw hardly  any change.
    The results, published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Affective Disorders, showed those given the real laser therapy were  still seeing the benefits three months later.
    Professor Tony Cleare, a specialist in affective disorders at King’s College London, said some studies had shown a benefit from acupuncture but others had not.
    He added: ‘There is little evidence that, in depression, acupuncture to specific areas of the body is any different from acupuncture in random areas.
    'This suggests that if acupuncture is having an effect, it isn’t in the way that acupuncturists think.’
    Beth Murphy, head of information at the mental health charity Mind, said: ‘We welcome news of any new therapies being developed for depression, especially those associated with fewer side-effects.’

    CAN A GOOD BOOK HELP BEAT DEPRESSION?

    Can a good book help beat depression? It won't eradicate it but it sure will help, anything that takes your mind off anxieties, worries and sadness it sure to help and reading aids escapism. They don't necessary need to be novels, any book that interests you is aiding escapism and taking your mind of what is making you feel they way you do. Sometimes even reading about feelings as in poetry can help and it makes you feel you are not alone and it helps express how you feel. Anything no matter what it is, is worth trying, be it reading, listening to music, painting, where you can lose yourself is excellent.


    Article from the Daily Mail below


    Can a good book help beat depression? GPs draw up list of 27 'mood-boosting' reads to help those with mental illness

    • Therapeutic qualities of books hoped to help those with depression, anxiety and stress
    • List includes Cider With Rosie, A Small Island and The Secret Garden 

    It is the rural idyll that has given happiness to generations of book-lovers.
    Now Cider With Rosie is to be recommended by GPs across the country, in the hope that its therapeutic qualities will help those with mental illness.
    The book, which chronicles the Gloucestershire childhood of author Laurie Lee, is one of a new list of ‘mood-boosting’ books which experts hope will help those with depression, anxiety and stress.
    Stress-buster: Reading can help you relax and escape and this is a good strategy for dealing with stress and anxiety
    Stress-buster: Reading can help you relax and escape and this is a good strategy for dealing with stress and anxiety
    The list also includes Bill Bryson’s Notes From A Small Island, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden and Salmon Rushdie’s Haroun And The Sea Of Stories.
    It will be advertised on leaflets distributed by GPs from May as part of the ‘Books on Prescription’ scheme, supported by the Department for Health.
    The official list of was drawn up by the Reading Agency via book groups, many catering to people with anxiety and depression.
    And it may not be long before the likes of Fifty Shades Of Grey By EL James are also being recommended, as readers have been invited to submit their own suggestions.
    The book is one of a 27-strong list of 'mood boosting' books which will help those with depression
    The book is one of a 27-strong list of 'mood boosting' books which will help those with depression
    It is hoped those with ‘mild to moderate’ mental health conditions will try out the idea before turning to prescription drugs - many of which can have unpleasant side effects.
    Debbie Hicks, director of research at the Reading Agency, said: ‘Readers chose books which they thought had qualities that promote well-being.
    ‘We have funny and humorous titles and you also get books that have quite breath-taking experiences in them.
    ‘Reading is a really good stress-buster. It can help you escape to another world and get out of your everyday life.
    ‘There’s lots of evidence that reading can really help you relax and escape and this is a good strategy for dealing with stress and anxiety.’
    The scheme was announced yesterday by the Society of Chief Librarians as part of a new national strategy for Britain’s libraries.
    It will run alongside the ‘Books on Prescription’ scheme, which allows GPs to ‘prescribe’ self-help books stocked at local libraries.
    On each prescription leaflet will also be a recommendation for the patient to dip into the ‘mood-boosting’ reading list.
    Almost every library in the country has agreed to stock the approved list of self-help books and mood-boosting books.
    In addition, the books will be distributed in colleges, hospitals and workplaces around the country.
    Research by Mindlab International recently revealed that out of a range of activities, reading reduced stress the most - by 67 per cent.
    The reading cure

    Front cover of book, titled : The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde. From Hodder & Stoughton, £12.99
    Book: Home to Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani.
    Uplifting: Crime comedy The Big Over Easy and the heart-warming Home To Big Stone Gap
    But experts warned it is intended to supplement any treatment a patient is undergoing - rather than acting as a fail-safe ‘cure’.
    The suggestions for the 27-title reading list were submitted by more than a dozen reading groups, with a panel of judges at the Reading Agency selecting the best.
    They said Bill Bryson’s 19996 book was chosen for its humour value, while the Secret Garden, published in 1910, was selected for its escapism.
    Cider with Rosie, published in 1959, has stood the test of time as a favourite of the nation having sold over 6 million copies worldwide.
    Also featuring on the list are Lucy Diamond’s 2011 ‘chick lit’ novel The Beach CafĂ©, E. H. Gombrich’s 1935 non-fiction A Little History of the World, and Jasper Fforde’s 2005 crime comedy The Big Over Easy.

    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.
