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.

DIABETES TYPE 2 (LATE ONSET) IS NOT A MILD DISEASE

Once type 2 diabetes develops, symptoms include unusual thirst, a frequent need to urinate, blurred vision, or extreme fatigue. Talk to your doctor to see if you need to be tested for pre-diabetes. By identifying the signs of pre-diabetes before diabetes occurs, you can prevent type 2 diabetes all together and lower your risk of complications associated with this condition such as heart disease.

Type 2 diabetes is more insidious it creeps up more slowly so the patient might not be aware of an increased thirst or passing more urine but may have noticed they are feeling more tired than usual, or they may notice the development of thrush, as thrush thrives in sugar laden tissues, or skin infections such as boils.

POORLY MANAGED DIABETES AND THAT INCLUDES TYPE 2 CAN RESULT IN GANGRENE LOSS OF LIMBS AND BLINDNESS
GANGRENE CAN OCCUR THROUGH POORLY MANAGED DIABETES

Ignorance of diabetes is 'a disaster in waiting': 70% of Brits don't know disease can lead to amputations and blindness

  • Only 16% of people know that diabetes is linked to heart attacks and just seven per cent are aware it can trigger strokes
  • Just 50% of people know that being overweight is a risk factor for diabetes
  • Only 13% realise having a relative with the condition raises their risk

Widespread ignorance about the damaging effects of diabetes is exposed in a poll out today.
Some 70 per cent of Britons said they did not know that the most serious form of the disease can lead to amputations and blindness.
Only 16 per cent knew that heart attacks are linked to type 2 diabetes and just 7 per cent realised it could trigger strokes, according to the survey.

The lack of awareness comes despite the fact that those with the illness are 36 per cent more likely to die in any given year than those without it of the same age.
Diabetes UK commissioned the survey as part of a £2million campaign funded in partnership with Tesco to raise awareness of the risk factors.
    The charity’s chief executive Barbara Young said the aim is to ‘lay to rest the myth’ that type 2 diabetes is a mild condition.
    ‘This is a misconception that is wrecking lives and is the reason that as a country we are sleepwalking towards a public health disaster of an almost unimaginable scale,’ she said.

    Losing weight, eating more fruit and vegetables and becoming more active are thought to cut the risks of diabetes.
    But only half of those who took part in the poll knew being overweight was a risk factor. 
    Only 13 per cent realised that having a family member with diabetes raises the danger and one in 100 mentioned being South Asian or black as a risk factor.
    Without urgent action, campaigners fear cases of type 2 diabetes will rise by one million to five million by 2025.

    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.
