Who Am I?

Socrates said:  "The unexamined Life is not worth living."

That is a very strong statement. I believe he is conveying that we are unable to grow toward greater understanding of our true nature unless we take the time to examine and reflect upon our life.

Do you know who you really are?  What you really want?
Are you following the path of least resistance? Going with the flow?

Get a pencil and write down  Who Am I?

For your answers put what you like or what you dislike.Write in your strengths and weaknesses, your feelings, aspirations, viewpoints about life. This is not about when you were born or your color eyes or hair. It is about You. Your feelings, beliefs and desires.

I hope you take this seriously and enjoy it. 

Have a Blessed Year!

News on CoQ10 and Aging

It is said that CoQ10 can aid in aging, heart disease, blood pressure,
Age-related macular degeneration Early study shows that acetyl-L-carnitine, n-3 fatty acids, and Coenzyme Q10 (Phototrop®) may help age-related macular degeneration. More research is needed using Coenzyme Q10 alone before a recommendation can be made.
 
 
Since CoQ10 is essential to the optimal function of all celltypes,it is not surprising to find a seemingly diverse number of disease states which respond favorably to CoQ10 supplementation. All metabolically active tissues are highly sensitive to a deficiency of CoQ10. CoQ10's function as a free radical scavenger only adds to the protean manifestations of CoQ10 deficiency. 
 
 
 
Rather than take the pill CoQ10, and worry that you could be putting excess coQ10 in your body,it would be safer to eat the foods that contain CoQ10.
 
This is not for me, but Fish contain the highest source of CoQ10. Regularly including the freshest servings of sardines and mackerel in your meals allows the body to turn this important enzyme into the energy (ATP) that powers the heart and other muscles in the body to work efficiently. Also Beef heart and Liver.
 
Fresh lamb and Pork are also sources of CoQ10.
 
Eggs, but not chicken.
 
Vegetables and Grains
  • Preparing fresh raw vegetables as part of a diet is another valuable source of the CoQ10. In particular, spinach in a fresh salad with broccoli added to the mix and sprinkled with wheat germ is a coenzyme Q10 lunch. Fresh peanuts and unprocessed whole grains give the body smaller amounts of the CoQ10.
 
 
 
 

Reiki Healing

 
Reiki, a therapy in which hands are placed lightly on the body or just above it, is increasingly being used to reduce cancer-related fatigue, anxiety, nausea and pain. Several studies suggest a benefit to patients, but scientists say more large, rigorous studies are needed.
Cancer patients—due to the disease and to side effects of chemotherapy—often suffer from severe mental and physical fatigue, doctors say. Anxiety, nausea and pain are also common. In recent years, many cancer centers have been offering Reiki, a form of healing which originated in Japan in the early 1900s, according to scientific literature. In a session of Reiki, hands are placed lightly on the body. Each spot is treated for three minutes or longer and sometimes therapists place their hands just above the body without touching, says Donah Drewett, a Fairlee, Vt.-based Reiki therapist who works at Norris Cotton Cancer Center in Lebanon, N.H.
Extra care is needed with cancer patients. Therapists must avoid sensitive areas on the body such as ports used to administer medications, doctors and therapists say. The gentleness of Reiki is appealing to cancer patients, many of whom are too ill to tolerate a deep-tissue massage, doctors say.
Reiki is often described as a treatment that helps life energy to flow in a patient—an explanation not generally accepted by scientists. Barrie Cassileth, chief of the Integrative Medicine Service at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, calls the energy theory "absurd" but says light-touch therapy can have a "great relaxing effect" on cancer patients "who are constantly poked, prodded and given needles."
Adds Deborah Steele, manager of patient and family support services at Norris Cotton: "How it works is a mystery, but we see anecdotally the amount of delight" it brings patients.
Some scientists think the benefits may be as simple as the warmth of human touch and the feeling that someone is caring for you. "We do have a reciprocal effect between the mind and the body. if you relax one, you relax the other," Dr. Cassileth says.
 

What are Nightshades

                  What are nightshades?
 
 
Nightshades are vegetables that can have effects on nerve-muscle function,digestive function, and joint function. There is a substance in the foods that can increase inflamation in people that suffer from arthritis
 
Potatoes, tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, tomatillos, tamarios, pepinos, pimentos, paprika, cayenne, and Tabasco sauce
 
When I eat potatoes and peppers together I can feel the inflamation.
The best way to know if you are sensitive to any of these vegetables is to be aware when you eat them, and how you feel the next day or so.
