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.

I had to laugh at this, for this is not a new drug at all, AlkaSeltzer has been around for decades, it is a combination of asprin and an antiacid, ok it doesn't contain caffeine but a cup of coffee or strong tea will soon sort that out.

Also the main symptoms of a hangover are down to dehydration and what is caffeine? well its a diruretic! (makes you pass more urine adding to the dehydration). Honestly makes me wonder who writes this stuff.

Now I am not condoning hangovers but it is the party season after all but if you want a full proof Holistic remedy I have a better one. Homeopathic Nux Vomica 30C take a couple in a clean mouth, allow them to dissolve in the mouth before you go out on the razzle and before you go to bed drink plenty of water and allow another couple of Nux Vomica 30C to dissolve in the mouth. You should be fine in the morning but you must drink plenty of water as alcohol will dehydrate you and the additional water will help wash out the toxins from your body. However don't make a habit of it think of your poor over worked and poisoned liver.

We have created the ultimate hangover cure in a pill (just in time for Christmas), claim U.S scientists

  • First remedy of its kind
  • Combination of aspirin and caffeine eradicates all symptoms in just 15 minutes
  • Designed by ex-financier with no pharmaceutical background
  • More effective than other products on the market
Alcohol-induced hangovers will be a thing of the past thanks to a new over-the-counter remedy say U.S. scientists.
A single dose of Blowfish can eradicate all symptoms sparked by a night of heavy drinking, such as nausea, vomiting and fatigue, in just 15 minutes.
Hailed as a miracle cure by its maker, the pill - which contains 500 milligrams of aspirin, 60 milligrams of caffeine and an antacid to soothe upset stomachs - is already available online.

It has just launched across the U.S. and if successful will be introduced to the UK next year, costing customers £1.90 for a single dose or £7.60 for a six-pack.
Incredibly the groundbreaking formula isn't the work of scientists but was discovered by former financier Brenna Haysom, who stumbled across the recipe after trying hundreds of hangover cures.
The Harvard graduate said: 'I started on a quest to find something that really worked and could be taken the morning after drinking. 
'After some research, I found a combination that did the trick, fast. I started sharing it with my friends, and they kept asking for more.'

Spotting a gap in the market, Miss Haysom,who has no pharmaceutical background, set about designing the first remedy specifically designed for hangovers in collaboration with New York-based manufacturers Rally Labs LLC.
Her product has now been granted approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) deeming it safe for market.
Those suffering from a hangover are instructed to take two of the effervescent tablets which claims to help 'restore mental alertness or wakefulness when experiencing fatigue or drowsiness associated with a hangover.'
Miss Haysom added: 'Most of the big drugs companies don't necessarily want to be associated with hangovers.
'It's really made from old-fashioned ingredients, after my own personal experimentation I realised that this combination really worked.
'So many people see hangovers as a shameful or embarrassing thing. I think of them as just a fact of life.'

Despite the product slogan, 'Own the night. Save the day' Miss Haysom denies that the treatment promotes binge drinking and she doesn't encourage overuse, adding 'I definitely don't encourage people to get obliterated.'
Some will also be concerned about the amount of aspirin contained in the tablets as the drug commonly causes heartburn and other symptoms of stomach irritation such as indigestion, pain, nausea, and vomiting.
For this reason the NHS states that paracetamol-based remedies for hangovers are preferable.
Anne Joshua, Associate Director of Pharmacy at NHS Direct, said: 'As Blowfish is a new drug, not currently available in the UK, we do not have enough information to comment on it.
However while aspirin is effective in treating painful conditions associated with a hangover, such as a headache, it is not suitable for everyone and some people can experience side effects from taking it.
'It is also not suitable for some people with certain long term conditions, and Paracetamol-based remedies are usually preferable for hangover symptoms.
'Many of the symptoms associated with a hangover are a result of dehydration, so drinking water before bed or the next day can also relieve symptoms.'

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.
