Winter is a great time to get out and have fun and to stay active this season you need to stay happy, well and flu virus free. Many of you have this info from last year but a revision is always good to help you adjust 'your sails'a€¦..
Two to three serves of green leafy vegetables daily will help keep up your Vitamin C - as will fresh fruit. For those of you more at home with supplements than fruit and vegetables, an effective way to increase your intake of Vitamin C without stomach upsets and loose stools is to mix 2000-5000mg (Adult dose) Vitamin C powder into 1 litre of filtered water and sip it during the day. For those of you who embrace the Winter Yuletide festivities and refuse to entertain even the faintest possibility of catching a flu - here is our Mulled Wine Recipe and subsequent Hang-Over Cure - by request. Drink 1 glass before retiring (Perhaps you should think ahead and prepare this before you venture out as it could be interesting getting this all together when really inebriated. I hope this will be of some help in keeping the nasties away or bouncing you back from some self-imposed 'nasties'.
If you need a tonic as a preventative (or you catch a flu and need one for treatment) I can make one for you. Red Nose Day, held annually on the last Friday in June, is the major fundraiser for SIDS and Kids.
SIDS and Kids is dedicated to saving the lives of babies and children during pregnancy, birth, infancy and childhood and to supporting bereaved families.
I am currently on Long Service Leave from the NSWDEC until mid August, subsequently travelling here and there and catching up with people.
Those of you who know me well, also know that the Winter Magic Festival at Katoomba is upon us (20th June). Did you know meditation can cause headaches, seizures, anxiety , mental illness, panic attacks, weight loss, insomnia, psychosis and hallucinations?
Please read this article carefully and ask yourself whether meditation is having any negative affects on your health.
Note: I am aware that as a meditation teacher it might seem strange for me to discuss the negative health impacts of meditation.
Meditation is known to produce mental calmness and changes in autonomic functioning,  such as blood pressure and heart rate, but it can also have a negative effect and can cause seizures.
Epilepsy is caused by hypersynchrony of EEG activity and the rise in brain glutamate and serotonin. Persinger has subsequently conducted research into the experience of so called “spiritual events.” In his tests, Persinger had patients wear helmets through which were passed electrical signals  that les to magnetically induced seizures. I originally put these memories on paper to share with my two sons when they become mature enough to comprehend more fully the events described.
As long as I live, I will never forget my secretary, Kathy informing me on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, that an airplane had just struck one of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. That moment had an exceptional impact on me, as my nearly seven and nearly four and a half year old sons and I had been studying skyscraper history and construction for the past several months.
I ran out to the lobby of my office building, where there was a television and watched in horror as the black smoke billowed out of gaping holes in Tower 1.
My heart sank as any doubts about this being a terrorist attack went up in the very smoke that I was now horrifiedly watching along with my colleagues.
I resumed seeing the shocked patients in my office, when my secretary informed me that one of the Towers (Tower 2) had just fallen.
My mind was now miles away from my office, with those innocent victims of the ultimate in hate.
I called both of my hospitals, Manhattan, Eye, Ear and Throat and New York-Presbyterian to learn that their emergency rooms had a€?adequate staffing for the time beinga€?. I now knew that if I were to make a significant contribution to the relief effort, I had to get a slit lamp downtown to treat the rescuers and victims with eye problems on-site. I called the assistant administrator at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, Craig Ugoretz, who combed the building and found the one slit lamp microscope that was not bolted to a floor-mounted stand. Not knowing when my next meal would be, or when I would return home, I grabbed a quick bite in a local restaurant.
When I arrived at the hospital, the slit lamp was in the lobby, waiting for me at the security desk. On our way it was suggested that I first stop at One Police Plaza to treat the eyes of injured police officers. The police officers that I cared for were still so debris-laden, that their uniforms appeared more khaki than blue from the concrete dust and ash. On the first day alone, I had the honor of caring for the eyes of more than one hundred heroes in every sense of the word.
Fortunately, most of the eye injuries were not severe, but were nonetheless incapacitating.
During the night, when the steady flow of the injured slowed to a trickle I walked into the Command and Control Center next door to try to learn what was going on outside this fortress.
Still later when the flow of injured officers stopped, I wanted to take the slit-lamp to a€?Ground Zeroa€? itself to care for injured members of the other uniformed services. I went uptown during the night for a few hours to check on my family, clean up and possibly get a nap to prepare for the next day. It wasna€™t until my second day downtown, during a break, that I first opened the blinds of my improvised emergency room at One Police Plaza to discover that the windows faced out over the devastation. After my final visit to One Police Plaza to render follow-up care on September 20th, I was escorted to a€?the sitea€? by Sergeant Giuzio from the Office of the Chief of Police. As we went through multiple checkpoints, I began to see large groups of rescue workers walking through the streets.
We walked the blocks of lower Manhattan, through several more checkpoints, to an NYPD a€?staging areaa€?.
The road on which we were walking (West Street), just days before, was under high piles of debris, left by the Towersa€™ collapses.
We were now standing adjacent to a€?Ground Zeroa€? on West Street between Building 6 and the World Financial Center. While I was transfixed by the overwhelming spectacle of this tragedy, the sergeant asked me to stay where I was as he walked up to a tall thin man. As we walked around the corner to the Hudson River side of the World Financial Center both the lights and the clatter of the rescue work faded, somewhat.
Going down Albany Street, we passed a restaurant, where people must have been sitting until the windows were blown in by falling debris.
As we walked onward toward the site of the Tower 7 collapse, there were many tents and tables set up to provide the workers with the essentials of life during their mission. We passed buildings that looked as if they had been spray-painted gray because of their coating of concrete dust.
After the address we said farewell, feeling a sense of comradeship, which was disproportionate to the time we spent together. As we approached Liberty Street we saw a large group of rescue workers gathered under one of many gasoline-powered floodlights. Taking Douglasa€™ design from concept stage to a scale model rendered in Plexiglas became a year-long father and son project.
Victimsa€™ names are an entirely appropriate means of remembering the dead in all memorials. It must be noted that there were no recovered or identifiable remains belonging to over one thousand victims of the World Trade Center tragedy. Albeit not universally praised for their architecture, the Twin Towers were an integral part of New York City, which no longer grace our skyline.
Both the names of the victims and a reincarnation of the World Trade Center icons could be represented simultaneously by the memorial, as there is no fundamental incompatibility between memorializing both human and material loss.
Relics and rubble from the disaster site represent significant and tangible ties to the actual tragic event and location.A  Relics of the disaster should not solely be housed in a museum or off-site (as they are now) in an airplane hangar. The design evolved into a pair of transparent towers with rectangular areas missing where the airplane impacts occurred, containing standing faA§ade relics inside one Tower and the recovered American flag inside the other. After studying the photo for pensively for several minutes, he said, a€?You have to do something with thisa€?.
Within a few weeks, I received not just one, but two letters from the General Counsel of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation (the organization empowered with the rebuilding of the Ground Zero area). Not knowing where to start, I casually asked an architect, Mark Mascheroni, who has a son at my sonsa€™ school, how much a set of architectural renderings might cost. We met face to face for only the second and final time at a very busy architectural printing shop, Esteban & Co at 139 West 31 Street.
As I handed Mansion a check for his work, I asked him to sign the official LMDC release, required for all submission team members.
One appropriately placed 3-dimensional rectangular space, devoid of its glass faA§ade, representing the a€?impact voida€? in each Tower (floors 93-98 of the North Tower and floors 78-84 of the South Tower) symbolize the loss from, and location of, the damage from each initial airplane impact. The difference between life and death for thousands of people inside the Twin Towers was the ability or inability to find an intact stairway by which to escape.
Each of the two Memorial towers has a footprint of 40 x 40 ft., and is situated in the space in between the two 200 x 200 ft. The glass panels making up the curtain-walls are inscribed with each victima€™s name, date of birth, occupation, nationality and, when from a uniformed service, the appropriate shield (FDNY, EMS, NYPD, PAPD) (Image 1, Section E).
The glass curtain wall is supported by an internal, open stainless steel frame, reminiscent of the Twin Towersa€™ metal infrastructure whose melting under the intense heat of the jet fuel fires resulted in the Towersa€™ ultimate collapse.
1)The inspiring American flag recovered from the World Trade Center rubble that was solemnly raised by rescuers. A patient of mine, who saw the submission to the contest, was so impressed with Dougiea€™s concept that she arranged a meeting with the world-renowned architect, A. William Stratas, a website developer from Toronto created a wonderful website for contestants to share news of the competition and to discuss their personal experiences.
Stratas and I began to communicate on a regular basis and became long-distance comrades in architecture.
After office hours, I took Dougie to the party followed by a trip to the exhibition of the eight finalists at the Winter Garden of the World Financial Center.
After talking to Dougie for a while, she informed me that the man standing directly behind me was Kevin Rampe, the President of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation. At the Forum, Dougie was interviewed by Georgett Roberts of the New York Post and by Alan Feuer of the New York Times.
After the photo session and the presentation of the Certificate of Merit to Doug, we were escorted to a locked room called a€?The Family Rooma€?. Doug was introduced to the winner, Michael Arad, and his associate, Peter Walker, in a conference room. Aptly stated about the competitors by New York Times reporter Julie Iovine was, a€?Working on their own initiative and against lousy odds, determined to express themselves and to keep memory alive, they spent countless thousands of hours conceiving, drafting, revising and explaining their visionsa€?. As an ophthalmic surgeon, I expressed my personal need to do something constructive in the aftermath of the WTC tragedy by obtaining a portable slit lamp microscope and using it to treat the eye injuries of rescue workers at Ground Zero.
I reflected on how many renowned architects begin their creative processes with Lego blocks (or equivalents), or perhaps with rough sketches on cocktail napkins.
I discussed my feelings about these comments with a patient, who is an editor of the New York Times. Our teama€™s memorial design now proudly resides on the LMDC website along with the other 5200 entries. One final note is that, several years later, a patient came into my office and informed me that he had just been hired as the General Counsel of an insurance company in Philadelphia, by, of all people, Kevin Rampe.
As I wrote in the beginning, I originally put these memories on paper to share with my two sons when they become mature enough to comprehend more fully the events that I have just described.
One of the most difficult things that I have ever been called upon to do, was to address the Connecticut Society of Eye Physicians on my experiences and on emergency preparedness, only a few months after the disaster, on December 7, 2001. I think about the tragedy every day, and particularly my personal memories of experiences that have changed the course of history. A total of 5,193 World Trade Center memorial proposals have been given the heave-ho, but the people who created them aren't slinking quietly back to their day jobs. On December 6, hundreds of teachers, architects, and engineers that didn't make it will gather at New York University to display their work and discuss their discarded ideas. Another participant, Barry Belgorod, plans to bring his 6-year-old son, Doug, to the all-day event. William Stratas, the Canadian Web developer organizing the forum, said the event wouldn't be a rally or a session dedicated to critiquing the eight designs that made it past the 13-member jury. Only one session is dedicated to discussing the finalist designs, and he said he's anticipating some thoughtful but harsh critique. December 7, 2003 -- Some 60 people, including a 6-year-old boy, who were among the 5,000 entrants who submitted Ground Zero memorial designs, and lost, met in lower Manhattan yesterday to protest the closed-door judging process that produced the eight finalist proposals. Contestant Douglas Belgorod, 6, of Manhattan said he used his Lego building set to construct the two towers and had pulled out the blocks to leave a space where the hijacked planes hit. Brian McConnell, 33, an engineer from San Francisco, said he was glad he made the effort to see other people's work.
New York heart surgeon Robert Jarvik, 57, said the finalists lacked passion and imagination. The losers -- no, not the losers, the ones who did not win -- stood around doing what they had done for many months online, which is to say they thought, talked, argued, vented, ranted, complained and basically obsessed to the point of meltdown over how to build the best possible World Trade Center memorial. Naturally, there was a bit of surprise when Adrienne Austermann, who goes by the name of Trinity online, turned out to be a woman since many people thought she was a man, and there was more than pleasant applause when Eric Gibbons, also known as Lovsart, took his own turn at the lectern since people really liked the absence of public benches in his plan, benches that might encourage loiterers to hang out eating hot dogs -- not exactly what Mr.
All in all, it was a remarkably diverse group, which had among its ranks a financial analyst, an engineer, a graphic designer, a schoolteacher, a sculptor, a union electrician, an ophthalmologist and his 6-year-old boy, and Robert Jarvick, the inventor of the artificial heart.
There was also a very simple replica of the towers done in glass that was conceived by Dougie Belgorod, the 6-year-old, who constructed the initial model out of Legoes. At any rate, the idea did not attract the interest of the competition's jury, which -- whenever it was mentioned -- seemed to produce in the crowd of nonwinners the kind of forced affability and small uncontrollable tics one often finds in people trying to suppress great rage. They spent the morning sharing their designs with one another, and in the afternoon set out to draft a Declaration (''Capital D,'' Mr. Later in the afternoon, the nonwinners went down to ground zero, where they stopped off at the World Financial Center to look at the eight designs that had defeated theirs.
It smarted having lost, no doubt about it, but all the nonwinners said they would not give up.


As long as I live, I will never forget my secretary, Kathy informing me on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, that an airplane had just struck one of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center.A  Prior to this, it seemed like a normal Tuesday morning, seeing patients in my ophthalmology office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Fortunately, most of the eye injuries were not severe, but were nonetheless incapacitating.A  When the Towers collapsed, there was a cascade of enormous quantities of pulverized concrete and sheetrock, wisps of fiberglass, asbestos dust (the buildings were not asbestos free) and splinters of glass. Still later when the flow of injured officers stopped, I wanted to take the slit-lamp to a€?Ground Zeroa€? itself to care for injured members of the other uniformed services.A  I was emphatically discouraged from doing this by the staff of the office of the Chief of Police, until buildings stopped collapsing and the ground beneath was more stable. Longtemps regardee avec mefiance par le monde de la recherche, cette pratique commence a etre rehabilitee au fil des etudes scientifiques. Pour demontrer les bienfaits de cette technique ancestrale, les scientifiques ont mene leur experimentation sur 66 volontaires: apres s’etre concentres sur le moment present tout en travaillant leur respiration, ces derniers ont ete soumis a des tests de stress ou, par exemple, ils devaient resoudre des problemes de maths sous le regard severe d’examinateurs.
Ce sont les boudhistes qui, les premiers, ont sollicite les scientifiques pour que des etudes independantes soient menees sur les effets de la meditation. Des neuroscientifiques de l’Hopital general du Massachussets, aux Etats-Unis, l’ont demontre sur un groupe de novices meditant depuis huit semaines.
Si la meditation est capable de reconfigurer le cerveau –un organe que l’on dit «plastique»–, elle est aussi a l’origine de changements positifs tres concrets pour notre sante physique et mentale. Une biologiste va elle encore plus loin: la meditation permettrait carrement de proteger notre ADN des effets du vieillissement!

Yep, my favourite little festival of the year, when Katoomba in the beautiful Blue Mountains resonates with all sorts of interesting a€?stuffa€™!
Across the internet you’ll find articles on how meditation can cure depression, improve your health, create happiness and much more. Michael Persinger at Leurentian University of Canada conducted research into the relationship between seizures and meditation.
Four out of every five of his test subjects stated that they had experienced a spiritual event. Charles Mango, from New York-Presbyterian Hospital, had managed to get downtown near the disaster site.
Lester, a detention-center designer, is flying in from Kansas City, Mo., to show his design, which involves a kinetic polycarbonate sphere etched with the names of the victims. McConnell used mathematical equations to design his plan for a spire that creates the illusion of infinite height.
Stratas posted registration forms online Wednesday morning, as the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation was announcing the finalists. Stratas insists the forum isn't about political action, some people say they'd like to find power in numbers. Stratas was standing at the lectern, on the fourth floor of the student center at New York University, talking to a group of peers whom he knew intimately but had never met before.
Mango said: ''You see, when I came up with my idea, I really thought that I was going to win. Stratas said), which will lay out their displeasure with the competition's eight finalists and which could be released to the public as early as today. Heys's comment, Zane Kinney, who had flown all the way from Ellensburg, Wash., felt compelled to correct the record. Vincenta€™s (which is not one of my hospital affiliations), which was closer to the scene, but they too had a€?enough medical personnela€? for the task.A  I was referred to a triage center at Chelsea Piers where medical volunteers could go to see a€?if they were neededa€?. Le groupe entraine a la meditation a affirme ressentir moins de stress que le groupe temoin. Jusqu’a recemment, d’ailleurs, la meditation etait regardee avec mefiance par le monde de la recherche qui la considerait, au mieux comme un avatar du New Age a la californienne, au pire comme une pseudo-science du meme acabit que l’homeopathie. En France, le grand public connait bien Matthieu Ricard, a la fois docteur en genetique cellulaire et moine tibetain. Au debut des annees 2000, on a ainsi commence a mesurer l’activite cerebrale de pratiquants, novices et confirmes, grace a des outils sophistiques comme l’imagerie par resonance magnetique fonctionnelle (IRMf). Lors d’une seance de visionnage de photos de tonalites positive et negative, l’amygdale des participants s’est montree moins sensible, comme si leur reponse emotionnelle etait devenue plus mesuree. En premier lieu, elle apaise l’angoisse en agissant, on l’a vu, sur les zones cerebrales impliquees dans l’anxiete. Si elle ne guerit pas tous les bobos, et certainement pas les maladies graves, la meditation semble etre efficace contre la douleur, nous indique une etude americaine parue en 2011 dans la revue Journal of Neuroscience. Les effets benefiques de la meditation iraient meme jusqu’a freiner le declin cerebral du a l’age.
However there is a direct relation between your risk of catching a cold and the amount of time spent in contact with an infected person.
Chicken contains a natural amino acid called cysteine.A  Cysteine can thin the mucus in the lungs and make it less sticky so you can expel it more easily. The benefits of a good nights sleep should never be under-rated, it's when your body gets a chance to repair and build up those components necessary for the next days onslaught! This step is helpful to decrease the extra mucous that dairy products can cause you to produce.A  Other normally wonderful foods like bananas and avocado can also aggravate the mucous condition.
It has been suggested that zinc is ,directly toxic to the virus and stimulates your body to produce antibodies to destroy the virus. Generally we all head straight for oranges, however other juices such as pineapple and grapefruit are very useful. However, it is advisable to seek professional advice before self-administering these as some may not be suitable for your particular condition or clash nastily with any existing medication you are taking. Sunshine has been getting a raw deal over the last decade due to fear of melanomas and skin cancers (hey I've had few burnt off myself), however recent research has shown that Vitamin D can have a very positive affect on immunity and resistance. Patients can also be given this as part of a maintenance program to prevent sinus build-up, or as a preventative for colds during winter and changes of season. Bring to the boil with the lid on, then simmer for 30 minutes, occasionally mashing the garlic and lemon with a potato masher while simmering. Drink another glass on rising and continue every hour or so, or until you feel more alive than zombie. If however, I have not seen you for a while and there are some gaps I need to know about, a short 30 minute consultation should be sufficient to get us up to speed. Bookings can continue to be made by email, facebook or phone (as I will be checking my messages even when away). While we here at TheDailyMeditation still advocate meditation, it is worth being aware of the potential health risks. These studies have shown that entering a meditative state alters neuro-chemistry and neuro-physiology of the brain that can lead to epileptogenesis. Because meditation is known to lead to these changes, there is belief in the scientific world that meditation could cause seizures. Their design was a glass replica of the twin towers with rectangular holes where the airplanes struck.
His design includes uniformed honor guards, firefighters and cops watching over a tomb in defense of the nation. Et pour cela, rien ne vaut 25 petites minutes de meditation pratiquees pendant seulement trois jours, assurait une etude du departement de psychologie de l’universite Carnegie Mellon, publiee en juillet 2014. Il faut dire que l’origine religieuse de la pratique, aujourd’hui etroitement associee au boudhisme, fait grincer les dents des rationalistes.
Et l’on s’est apercu, au fil des etudes, que non seulement le cerveau des adeptes en train de mediter differait de l’organe «au repos», mais que l’acte regulier modifiait durablement le fonctionnement cerebral. C’etait specialement le cas dans le groupe des pratiquants de la meditation dite de pleine conscience, qui consiste a etre attentif a ce que l’on ressent, sans se concentrer sur un sentiment ou un objet particulier. Elle serait aussi efficace pour lutter contre la depression, selon un etude publiee en avril dernier dans la revue medicale The Lancet.
Les volontaires, que l’on a brules pendant quelques minutes a la jambe tandis que l’on realisait une imagerie de leur cerveau, ont evalue a la baisse l’intensite de leur douleur: dans le cas de ce tout petit groupe (15 personnes), la meditation s’est montree plus efficace que la morphine! Une equipe de l’universite de Californie a Los Angeles a ainsi compare les pertes de matiere grise, qui accompagnent ineluctablement la vieillesse, chez des meditants et pour un groupe temoin. Elizabeth Blackburn, la chercheuse en question, a remporte le prix Nobel de medecine pour l'identification de la telomerase, enzyme qui rallonge les telomeres, sortes de chapes protectrices a l’extremite des chromosomes dont la longueur est liee a l’age. We have previously offered information on a€?Winters Blues and Depression and this is still available via the following link: Types of Depression . The time you are ill may be longer if you do not allow yourself to recuperate and recover completely. If you are caring for a child with a cold, PLEASE WASH YOUR HANDS every time you have to wipe their nose. Pineapple juice actually contains more Vitamin C than oranges and is considerably less acidic and breaks down mucous plugs faster, while grapefruit also helps to detoxify the liver. The best way to get Vitamin D is to be outside for as little as 5 - 10 minutes without sun block, as this inhibits the body's ability to absorb this essential little vitamin. Also if you have been down the antibiotic path recently we may need to consider a probiotic. The results of his research shows that meditation can led to symptoms of partial epilepsy, including hearing voices, feeling vibrations and experiencing visual abnormalities. There was a 70-foot glass sculpture of a pair of hands cupped together reaching for the heavens, and a sort of paddle-wheel thing that people pushed, and when they pushed it, it generated energy, and the energy was used to power spotlights, and the spotlights shone up into the sky, and the intensity of the shine, well, it depended on how many people were pushing the wheel. Conclusion des chercheurs: la meditation, qui demande un effort cognitif important a ceux qui ont peu de pratique, produit tres rapidement des resultats positifs sur le bien-etre psychique, mais peut-etre au prix de changements physiologiques, hormonaux en l’occurence. A tel point qu’il y a quelques annees, l’invitation faite au dalai lama d’intervenir devant la Societe americaine des neurosciences a Washington avait suscite une petition hostile de quelques centaines de scientifiques, qui estimaient qu’un religieux n’avait rien a faire dans un tel lieu. Une equipe de psychologues de l’universite d’Oxford ont ainsi compare deux traitements, l’un par antidepresseurs, l’autre par therapie inspiree des principes de la meditation de pleine conscience, et leur ont trouve une efficacite semblable.
De meme, dans le cas de douleurs chroniques au cou, la meditation semble soulager les patients, sans que l’on puisse evaluer precisement si elle agit sur les voies de la douleur ou simplement sur l’anxiete qui accompagne ces pathologies. Elle a ete aussi l’une des premieres a faire le lien entre stress et raccourcissement des telomeres, peut-etre en raison de la baisse de l’activite de la telomerase, qui protege le bout des chromosomes: tout se passe comme si les tensions nous faisaient vieillir plus vite. The most common route of infection is not from coughing or sneezing, or walking barefoot in the rain, but from hand-to-hand contact. If you exercise regularly, you should definitely cut back on the intensity until you feel better. Epileptic patients suffer from auditory and visual hallucinations, with many believing that they have spiritual experiences, including speaking with God.
They are typically sold for $20-$25 per blanket.The reason why Wool is the most effective is twofold.
The worldwide impact of the tragedy is emphasized by recognizing the international scope of the loss.
Still, they wanted to remain involved and to contribute something -- anything, please -- because their energies and passions, the collective vat of their creative juices, really, could you throw it all away? De quoi instaurer la meditation comme solution alternative aux medicaments psychotropes, comme le propose d’ailleurs le service du psychiatre Christophe Andre a l’hopital Sainte-Anne a Paris. Ce qui est coherent avec ce que l’on sait, par ailleurs, du fonctionnement cerebral: la meditation qui est une activite mentale intense, fait «travailler» le cerveau, qui restera ainsi mieux connecte. A la fin des annees 2000, Blackburn s’est interessee aux facteurs qui permettraient de preserver les telomeres. The likelihood of you becoming a victim of the cold virus increases however, if you are overtired or physically exhausted.
Et a realise une etude sur des adeptes de la meditation partis trois mois dans une retraite dans les montagnes du Colorado. Two old standards, Chamomile and Peppermint are very useful for clearing and warming the sinuses. Antibiotics, including penicillin, DO NOT have any effect on viruses - which is why doctors prescribe them, to treat the secondary bacterial infections that can complicate a cold.
Le niveau de telomerase des meditants etait de 30% plus eleve que celui d’un groupe temoin. Don't stop at chicken soup, be creative with soups and casseroles that utilise a range of legumes and root vegetables, and don't forget to keep up your intake of raw fruit and vegetables to help your body build and maintain the necessary white blood cells.
NB I know we don't associate dehydration with Winter but most us spend a great deal of time in doors, centrally heated and this can be very 'drying'! The same vulnerability goes for goose and duck down the jackets and blankets.Another advantage of wool clothing and blankets is to remain warm when compressed. Most uncomplicated colds last between eight and nine days, but about 25% last two weeks, and 5-10% last three weeks.
Picture yourself and your family forced to lie down and sleep when your vehicle is broken down and you are waiting for emergency vehicles to arrive. I know that your love will last for all time, that your faithfulness is as permanent as the sky.


High Tech synthetic fabric-based clothing or blankets will compress and offer virtually no insulation on the ground or whatever a person is lying on.Blankets and outerwear made of wool are your Go To emergency survival preparedness material of choice. 15: But you, O Lord, are a merciful and loving God, always patient, always kind and faithful. Seven World Trade Center was not actually on the same plot of land as the rest of the World, Trace Center complex. 8: But God has shown us how much he loves us a€“ it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!Hebrews 13, vs. 8) A lightweight bucket style snow shovel for freeing your vehicle in case of a stuck situation. I would come home from work and plop myself in the chair for A? hour or so, wash up, change my clothes and eat dinner. This would be in addition to fresh fruits and vegetables that you would normally have in your household.I also recommend to prepare yourself and your family with foods typically healthier than your normal diet may be. I can count on my one hand the number of times I played ball with my boy or took my daughter shopping. I feel sorry for my children for not being there for them and sorry for my wife because she raised the kids pretty much on her own and she did a great job of it.
Propane fired heaters are a little bit safer but still produce potentially deadly carbon monoxide gases.Clearly a fireplace with professionally installed venting is a desired plus in potential emergency power outages. I am sorry for myself also because the moments that I missed with my children can never be recovered.
If your home or apartment has one I recommend at least a 2 week -24-hour supply of dry firewood and some kindling to start the fire.
I thought I was doing my best by beingA a goodA provider but in my older wisdom I know that being a Dad was the most important thing they needed.
I do not recommend using any type of liquid firestarter such as gasoline or commercially available petroleum-based fire starters.Remember your indoors and these fumes will circulate throughout the home. What can be done to minimize even the most dangerous blizzards and severe winter storm conditions This section is the most advanced and forward thinking for severe blizzard and winter storm front emergency survival preparation. He created us, molded us, watches over our lives, provides for us, and when we die He brings us into His kingdom.
3) As you are doing this breathe deeply in through your nose and softly exhale through your mouth. It was customary at that time for Rabbis (Jesus was onea€”it meant teacher) when they were among a crowd to say the first verse of a Psalm. What He most likely was doing was wanting the rest of the people, and us, to say the rest of the Psalm.

Lost loves, friends, jobs, disagreements with others, death of relatives, and depression are just some of the reasons we lose pride and hope in one self.
We could go on with this forever so today I am just addressing those qualities in single people.
With single people, it could just be the problem with finding the right a€?someonea€? to love. The delay or loss of a past love (among other things) could send someone spiraling downward into a loss of respect for themselves. Nationally, there are 85.6 unmarried men for every 100 unmarried women and the birthrate is approximately 53% women over men. They have the a€?TV-ADa€? looks, drugs, drinking, sex, and instant communication (cell and text).
Some people give up on themselves and become self destructive with over eating and drinking or hibernation.
From a mana€™s perspective, if a man is looking for a quick date, sex, or just a temporary girlfriend he will frequent a bar.
If a man is looking for a long term loving relationship or wife, he will look around church, a library (or book store), coffee bars, or social groups. Dona€™t settle on things that go against you conscience whether it is with yourself or a mate. People with multiple divorces fail in relationships, drinkers are good drinkers, abusers (physical or mentally) are just abusers and players, and cheaters are cheaters.
People rarely change and never enter a relationship with the thought that you can later on change that person to your expectations.
If a person you care for ever poses this statement ----- A a€? If you want me (or love me) you need to do a€?this or thata€™.a€? ----- then walk away and dona€™t look back.
The following religions or faiths consider Jesus as an enlightened spiritual teacher: Jehovaha€™s Witnesses, Mormonism, Unification Church , Christian Science, A? of all Wicca, New Age, Nation of Islam, Bahaa€™i World Faith, Hare Krishna, Hinduism, some of Judaism, and Islam. It is funny that all these listed above recognize him as a great spiritual teacher but do not follow His teachings.
The other half of Wicca, Transcendental Meditation, Scientology, and Buddhists either do not mention Him or He is not important to their way of thinking. Genesis Chapter #1 in part of verse 2 says, a€?and the Spirit of God was moving over the watera€?.
He won trophies for the best in class in New York State for horseshoes and archery (before compound bows) for several years running. He hunted and fished and always, it seemed, brought back his limit no matter what game, fish, or bird was in season. He joined the Navy Sea Bees in WW2 and ended up getting drafted in the Marine Corps on an Island in the Pacific during the conflict. The only way there is through His Son Jesus so I accept Him as my Lord and Savior and try my best to follow His ways. A ====================================================== ==============================================Note: If you have not seen the movie "Left Behind" with Kirk Cameron, now would be the time. Well to begin with; this promise from God is only for believers and followers of Jesus Christ.
Paul was talking about believers and inserted the condition of a€?for those who love Goda€?. You see, when you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and ask for forgiveness and confess to Him your sins --------- you are washed clean with the blood of Christ. However, sometimes you carry the baggage of the memories of those sins in your mind and heart. This verse in Romans assures you that your guilt is unjustified because God will make it turn out in the end for good. Jesus did not promise that this life would be easy but that He would walk through those troubled times with you. Although it was a good one, it caused me much stress and sometimes aspects of it violated my conscience. I do believe that God is making this bad thing turn out to be good and I think He has a better job for me in the near future. If you believe in God and love Him and believe in His promise, these too will turn out for the better. And leta€™s not forget that even though what his brothers did was a€?wronga€?, God made it into good when Joseph forgave them and helped them. His promise does not make wrong right but makes it turn out into something good for his glory, for us believers. We know that Jesus will walk with us through the valley but God will get us to the mountain top when we get through it. I am sure there are many stories out there of how this verse helped many people weather their storms.
Kendall============================================================Pastor Pop-Pop July 31, 2010. Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth.
Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the Lord your God and I tolerate no rivals.
I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. It tells us His personality, words, likes, dislikes, rules, commands, pleasures, and all the things he has done. So any god or image of him that does not conform to or match the one described in the Bible (the word of God) is not the God of Israel that we are to worship. Let us be clear that making images of anything is not a violation of the commandment but actually worshiping it as a god. Some churches within the body of Christ have pictures or statues of saints or even Jesusa€™ mother.
That is not a violation unless the statue (or the person) a€?itselfa€? is being worshiped as a god or the statue is believed to have some sort of power within itself. Wearing a Jewish star or a cross is also not a violation unless the emblem itself is worshiped. If they are decorations that is OK but if you actually place or believe some hope or faith of luck in them, it is a violation of the commandment.
People now seem to create their own god to worship in a€?their own minda€? and not within the scope of the Word of God (the Bible).
The one I hear the most is, a€?I am a good person so that is all that is needed to go to Heaven and be saved.a€? That is not what the Bible tells us.
Matthew 7:21 (ESV) says, a€?Not everyone who says to me a€?Lord Lord,a€™ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.a€? What is the will of the Father? People go around saying god is this or god is that or that is a€?not what I believe ina€™ but if their beliefs are not in line with the Bible, they are in violation of the first commandment.
God is OK with working on a Sunday (or having your place of business open), God is OK with Homosexual and Gay behavior, I dona€™t have to go to church and worship Him, I dona€™t have to give, I dona€™t have to forgive everyone, it is OK to kill unborn babies, He is OK with pagan rituals, I can be rude to people, God did not make the earth a€“ and on and on and on.
The pastor said that this church was saying the Holy Spirit told them this was OK but another church said that the Holy Spirit was against this and yet another one had a different view point from the Holy Spirit.
We all violate them in some way or another but that is why Jesus died on the cross to wash us clean in His blood and absolve us of our faults. He scribed it on stone tablets and gave them to Moses on the mountain top to give to His people. That is the translation that she likes to use.===============================================================Thou shall have no other gods before me. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous Goda€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦. Leta€™s take one at a time and discuss:We discussed this command last sermon (review if you want to).
Have you ever created another God in your mind or worshiped another god of a different religion or faith?
Jesus said that if you even lust in your heart (or mind) for another that you violate this commandment. Covet is defined in the NIV dictionary as: To want for yourself something that belongs to another person.
Whether you take it or not, take it and not return it, or just desire it ---- you have violated this commandment.
If you believe in Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, you are forgiven of your sins and you are washed in His blood clean and white as snow.
A Timothy McVey the mastermind on the Oklahoma bombing defied God and declared that he alone was the a€?master of his destinya€?.
A ==============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop August 24, 2010. Having a good relationship with your spouse, family, friends, or co-workers is usually based on a good two way conversational attitude. To render Him praise and glory through prayer, actions, good deeds, following His laws and commandments, and accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
He knows what we need before we ask but He likes to hear it from us also with some praise and worship attached. Your Mom knows you need food and gives you healthy meals but approaching her and asking for a snack also tells her you would like some cheese doodles too.
Prayers can be from a book, made up by you, from the Bible, or just general conversation between you and God. They can be on your knees by your bed, in Church, or just during every day activities or work. I try to concentrate not on an earthly or worldly fixture or thing but temporarily close my eyes (not while driving) or look up when I talk to Him.
I find one (or a paragraph or verse) that I derive comfort from and say it as a special prayer to the Lord. What can flesh do to me?Psalm 121(NLT): I look up to the mountains-does my help come from there? Go to a good book store and page through some and see which ones are comfortable for you personally. They are good Bibles but one is paraphrased and one is in a so called modern language that, for me, does not read real well. I highly recommend The New Living Translation (NLT), The New Century Version (NCV), or the New American Bible (NAB). The first two are used a lot with Contemporary Christian Churches and the third contains extra books as it was designed to meet the needs of Catholic Christians. I also like the Good News Translation (GNT).A It is important that you like it and are comfortable with it.
