Live Superfoods

Live Superfoods - The Raw Superfoods Superstore

Live Superfoods

An amazing purveyor of raw, organic, vegan foods. In addition to the Live Superfoods brand, they offer complementary foods, whole food supplements and personal care products from their industry’s finest suppliers.

Nutrition in its Purest Form:
As we’re sure you already know, most of our country’s food is grown using toxic chemicals, processed at high temperatures, irradiated or pasteurized to make sure no living organisms survive(!), and then “fortified” with ingredients that most of us can’t pronounce. In the process, much of the nutrients and enzymes that our bodies crave are lost, or at least severely compromised.

 

 

They’re here to assure you that it doesn’t have to be that way. Their goal is to provide their customers with a great selection of pure, unprocessed, nutrient-dense foods. Their “Nutrition in its Purest Form” mantra is something they take very seriously.

 

Quality Products that support the Dr. Weston A. Price philosophy.

 

Organic:
Their company owns and operates a USDA-certified organic packaging facility in Bend Oregon. They purchase raw ingredients which they package in consumer-size packages and sell directly to the public. They pride themselves on having a very rapid inventory turnover, which ensures that their customers receive the freshest possible products. Their organic products are certified by Oregon Tilth.

Raw:
They start with the purest ingredients from 5 continents. Their ingredients come from farmers and processors, who all share our contempt for processed foods and have made the investment in, and commitment to, low temperature drying processes. The results is nutrient-dense foods with their enzymatic life force intact.

Kosher:
All of heir Live Superfoods products are kosher certified. Even if your diet isn’t kosher, you may still appreciate that their foods, facility and processes have undergone the scrutiny of kosher inspectors. Their kosher products are certified by Earth Kosher.

Vegan:
No animal flesh or fats are used in the production of their products.

Gluten-Free:
All Live Superfoods products are gluten-free and many of their third party products are too.

 

 

Wild Harvested:
Several of the products they offer are wild harvested from the Amazon jungle basin. These products are not USDA certified organic, but the importers provide them with a Certificate of Analysis (CoA) from a third-party testing facility which tests for herbicides, pesticides, ecolli, salmonella and other contaminants.

 

Raw Organic Goji Berries

 

Eco-Friendly:
100% of their shipping cartons and packaging materials are eco-friendly. They start with recyclable cartons that they assemble using recyclable paper tape. They’ve replaced bubble wrap with corrugated cardboarding fluting and fill the void with kraft paper and biodegradable starch peanuts. They reuse their suppliers’ cartons and packaging materials to further reduce waste and encourage them to join our eco-friendly initiative.

The Goddess Garden

1 entrance

The Goddess Garden Eco Resort located in the Caribbean coastline of Cost Rica is a Yoga Retreat and Paradise, this eco-resort is an intentional place for transformation.  The Goddess Garden is located in the town of Cahuita, a small community in the south of Costa Rica, 40 km south of Puerto Limon. Cahuita National Park is the main attraction here, where you can watch White Faced Monkeys, Howler monkeys, Iguanas and more, just a few steps away from its white sand beach.

JaquelineFounded by Jacqueline Burkler and Marcelo Ruiz and in conjunction with John Jairo Ocampo, this Yoga Retreat astounds all your senses. Jacqueline was born in Switzerland where she grew up and achieved a PH. D. in natural sciences from the prestigious Federal Institute of Technology in Zürich. She always liked to travel and in early years traveled through Europe, Asia and the continent of America. She lived 13 years in Colombia before changing her home to Costa Rica in 1999.

 

marcelobirdwebFounder Marcelo Ruiz was born in Ecuador and at the age of nineteen went to live in Chicago where he got a degree in Art. He also attended North-western University where he obtained a teaching certificate. He taught algebra and geometry.  Among his interests are spirituality, meditation, shamanism, films, poetry, indigenous tribes, community service and Argentine tango dancing. The serenity of the rain forest and the pristine beaches of the Caribbean Sea inspired the idea to create an intentional place for transformation.

JohnJohn Jairo Ocampo made a point of helping others and sharing his healing gift with the people around him.  He moved to Switzerland at the age of 19 where he joined the First-Aid Association, eventually becoming president of the local branch.  He also enrolled in the volunteer fire fighters in his village at the age of 23.  During a short stay in the Indian sub-continent in 2002, he contacted the Ayurveda and decided to dedicate the rest of his life to this philosophy. Locals and visitors may now enjoy the great benefits of his Ayurvedic treatments.

The Goddess Garden Eco Resort is a magical place in the Rain forest and very close to the beautiful Caribbean Sea, the right environment to feel in touch with paradise and the essence of pure nature.   Their grandfather trees are the home of monkeys and sloths, iguanas, turtles, frogs, butterflies and hundreds of species of birds.

They are 20km away from Puerto Viejo, where you may find boutiques filled with local handicrafts, its black beach or the famous Salsa Brava is 5 minutes away, the white beach of Cocles, and a surfer paradise.  10km further south you will enjoy the beautiful bay of Punta Uva and where the roads ends, starts Gandoca with the little fisher town of Manzanillo and its breath taking white beaches.

Cahuita’s ethnic base is of Jamaican origin but you can find Italians, Germans, Swiss, and North-Americans. As a result of this mélange, there is a great variety of good restaurants along the small unpaved streets of what seems more like a village than a town in the eye of a tourist.


The Goddess Garden is where the rain forest meets the Caribbean Sea.  The Goddess Garden is designed to help us to remember our true nature, our essence and the doors are open for people who want to feel in harmony with all that nature has to offer.

The yoga and meditation center is a spiritual center surrounded by huge jungle trees that follow the path of a small creek. Just a step away, you will find the oldest and most amazing tree in Cahuita, Costa Rica. Its roots, as tall as a man, will leave you breathless…in reality it is a temple and a perfect place to truly experience the force of Grounding Meditation.

Grounding Tree

The Spiritual Center has two floors where the view of the rain forest expands to almost 360 degrees, designed to give you a wonderful feeling and putting you in a direct connection with nature during your sessions.

The conference room is designed for a 100 souls to enjoy the spectacular view of the rainforest. It has a stage for artists or speakers to perform. They offer the newest audio and video system. For your comfort, it is also equipped with air conditioning. In the back of the room you will find a built in waterfall with tropical plants that will delight your eyes.

In the healing spa they offer a variety of treatments tailored to your specific needs. They offer massages and therapies Ayurvedic, Shiatsu, Reiki, Deep Issue, Hot Stone and Shaman cures using local healing plants.

The purpose of this work is to bring a re-balancing of your body and mind, bringing to you the ecstatic feeling, the “aha” moment of harmony.

Some of the amazing features of this beautiful resort include two Yoga centers that are used perfectly suited for retreats and Yoga teachings, a beautiful and elegant conference center where anyone can host spiritual seminars and unique gatherings dedicated to the world of healing and meditation.

Yoga Room

An Ayurvedic healing spa offering the most profound relaxation therapies for sore and aching bodies is located on site.  The guest rooms are rustically appointed with all your basic retreat needs where you can rest and relax to the natural sounds of the gardens that surround you. On their property you will also find a restaurant, a lovely bar and of course no influential Central American retreat would be complete without a Palapa.


There are swimming pools surrounded by lush natural gardens filled with a variety of plants and fauna, fruits and wildlife. Situated within the rain forest it is just a 2km walk to the beautiful Caribbean Sea where you can bask in the sunlight and sink your toes in warm, soft coral sand.

The Breakers offers luxurious accommodations, world class services and opulent settings.

 

 

West Palm Beach Fitness offers an exclusive to over 40 miles of beautiful beaches in Palm Beach

A nearby public beach in the city of Palm Beach has lifeguards during the day, and is easily accessible. Flags by the lifeguard announce hazardous conditions (red for dangerous surf conditions, and purple for dangerous sea life).  For snorkeling, two places might satisfy. One is John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, located on the north end of Singer Island. The beach contains a shallow reef full of fish. Be careful, shark and barracuda are seen occasionally.

This park also has kayaking, music on Sundays, and some short hiking trails. Kayaking is popular in a calm inlet located in the park, which is surrounded by mangrove swamps.  Another snorkeling spot is the Breaker’s reef. Located on Palm Beach, the reef is nestled right behind the Breakers hotel. This reef is one long stretch that jets out into the ocean. You can park on the side roads near the Breakers, although it is technically illegal and police often tow out of town cars from this wealthy neighborhood.


A beach activity unique to Florida is watching space shuttles launch out over the ocean. Shuttles lifting off from Cape Kennedy are visible during both daylight and night hours, although night and early morning launches are significantly more impressive. From most beaches, looking directly north up the coast will orient you correctly. Launches are visible from anywhere in Florida, but the ocean guarantees a clear view and night launches often reflect in the water.  There are bicycle paths throughout the area. One of the nicest is on the West (Intracoastal) side of Palm Beach. It runs from the middle bridge to the inlet that separates Palm Beach from Singer Island. This path is also suitable for roller blading.

Love Your Derma

Derma Love2Your skin is the largest organ of the body. Yes, your skin is in fact an organ, just like your lungs, heart, and liver. Love your Derma, or skin. It makes a good covering for you, keeping all of the outside stuff out, and the inside stuff in. And you’d probably look pretty scary without it. But your Derma is much more than just a wrapper for your body. It actually has many jobs.

Your Derma helps regulate your body temperature by either releasing or retaining heat as needed, and it’s also an organ of protection. Your Derma also guards your muscles, nerves, and other internal organs from injury, and it defends the body against invading bacteria as well. Of course, the Derma also helps us experience the world. Through our skin we feel the sensations of heat, cold, pain, and pressure.


Discover Yves Rocher Botanical Body Care

The Derma has thousands of sensory nerve fibers specialized just for these purposes. All of this occurs in an organ that covers nearly 20 square feet, and weighs about 6 pounds. Atopic Dermatitis is an itchy inflammation of your skin. It may affect any area of your skin but it typically appears on your arms and behind your knees. It tends to flare up periodically and then subside. The cause however is unknown but it may result from a combination of inherited tendencies.

Self-care measures, such as avoiding irritable soaps and detergents. Certain creams and ointments can also cause this nuisance however it may help with itching especially if it is associated from unusually dry skin. If symptoms distract you from your daily routines or prevent you from sleeping you may want to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist.


Yves Rocher Creator of Botanical Beauty

Signs and symptoms of atopic dermatitis may include red to brownish-gray colored patches, itching especially in the evenings, small raised bumps which may leak fluids and crust over when scratched. Thickened, cracked and scaly Derma will become raw and sensitive from excessive scratching. A usual problematic issue may be from dust mites living and breeding in your clothing, bedding, mattress and carpeting.

One such occurrence has happened in apartment complexes where they allow pets and smoking, both causing excessive dander to accumulate in the walls and air ducts. Buildings that are not properly maintained or effectively cleaned between tenants have a large number of legal cases against them and it is highly recommended doing your due diligence before signing a lease.

Dust mite eradication is a complex procedure and is very costly to the building owners. However as difficult as it is, it does represent a huge health concern just as detrimental as black mold and should not be taken lightly. Regular cleaning and disinfecting is of standard hygiene importance. However one will never be rid of these pesky critters too microscopic to see with the naked eye.

Various organic products are available and I recommend staying away from the pesticide based products. A simple solution of Neem Oil combined with an essence of lavender and cinnamon is very successful in keeping these critters away from your bedding and pillows. Factors that worsen atopic dermatitis are having been infected with Staphylococcus bacteria.

This Staph bacterium multiplies rapidly when the Derma barrier has been broken and fluid is present in the skin in turn worsening symptoms, particularly in young children. Other factors that can worsen atopic dermatitis includes dry skin, long hot baths or showers, stress, excessive sweating, rapid changes in temperature, low humidity, solvents, cleaners soaps and detergents. Wool products or man-made fabrics and clothing, dust, sand and cigarette smoke.


Certain food such as eggs, milk, soy, fish and wheat can have an allergic reaction all needing to escape thru the skin as the body detoxifies itself from the consumption of these. When atopic dermatitis occurs in infants, it’s called infantile eczema. This condition may continue thru childhood and into adolescence. Infantile eczema often involves an oozing, crusting rash, mainly on the skin of the face and scalp but it can occur anywhere.

Noticeable occurrences involve a dryer skin and tend to be a red-brown-gray in color. In adolescence, the skin may be scaly or thickened and easily irritated. If you suspect your child has atopic dermatitis or you notice the above signs and symptoms, see your child’s doctor immediately. Early, effective treatment helps keep atopic dermatitis from worsening.

The more severe it becomes the more difficult it is to control. Most experts believe that atopic dermatitis has a genetic basis. It is thought to be connected to asthma and hay fever, but that theory is still being questioned. Not everyone suffers from all at the same time however they do seem to present together in families of those affected.


Yves Rocher : The Creator of Botanical Beauty

Sometimes it may seem like your skin is impossible to manage, especially when you wake up and find a huge zit on your nose or a cold sore at the corner of your mouth. The good news is that there are ways to prevent and treat common skin problems. Wash your face twice a day (no more) with warm water and a mild soap made for people with acne.

Gently massage your face with circular motions. Don’t scrub. Over washing and scrubbing can cause skin to become irritated. After cleansing, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends applying an over-the-counter (no prescription needed) lotion containing benzoyl peroxide. This will decrease oil and bacteria.

Don’t pop pimples. It’s tempting, but here’s why you shouldn’t: Popping pimples can push infected material further into the skin, leading to more swelling and redness, and even scarring. If you notice a pimple coming before a big event, like the prom, a dermatologist can often treat it for you with less risk of scarring or infection.

Avoid touching your face with your fingers or leaning your face on objects that collect sebum and skin residue like your phone. Touching your face can spread the bacteria that cause pores to become inflamed and irritated. To keep bacteria at bay, wash your hands before applying anything to your face, such as treatment creams or makeup.


If you wear glasses or sunglasses, make sure you clean them frequently to keep oil from clogging the pores around your eyes and nose. If you get acne on your body, try not to wear tight clothes. They don’t allow skin to breathe and may cause irritation. Scarves, headbands, and caps can collect dirt and oil, too.

Remove your makeup before you go to sleep. When buying makeup, make sure you choose brands that say “noncomedogenic” or “nonacnegenic” on the label. Throw away old makeup that smells or looks different from when you first bought it. Keep hair clean and out of your face to prevent additional dirt and oil from clogging your pores.

Protect your skin from the sun. It may seem like a tan masks acne, but it’s only temporary. A tan may worsen your acne, not improve it. Tanning also causes damage to skin that will eventually lead to wrinkles and increase your risk of skin cancer.


If you’re concerned about acne, talk to a dermatologist. Dermatologists offer a range of treatments that help to prevent and acne scars. A dermatologist can help you find the treatment method that’s best for you and can also give you lots of useful tips for dealing with acne and caring for your skin type. Some salons and spas have trained skin specialists, called estheticians, who can offer advice and skin care treatments.

High Blood Pressure Reduction Measures

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a major health problem that affects many people, a lot of which don’t even realize that they have it. Often, people are told that changes in their diet and exercise habits are enough to control blood pressure, without the use of medication.


House of Nutrition

Reducing your sodium intake is one of the most important factors in reducing your blood pressure level. Those affected with high blood pressure often claim that reducing their sodium intake reduces their blood pressure as well. It is important to learn which foods are high in sodium and limit your intake or avoid them all together.

Eating more fruits and vegetables and even some grains increases your intake of important vitamins, minerals, and fiber. However with our busy lifestyles we can hardly find the time to stop at the store and take the time to sort thru the groceries we need to maintain a healthy routine, however I found that studies suggest that people with a diet high in these foods and low in fats can reduce blood pressure in a small, but significant way.


House of Nutrition

Adding exercise to this change in diet can improve the blood pressure reduction. It helps to prevent and to control hypertension, and it is said that people who are active in exercise have lower death rates than their sedentary counterparts, even when they have the same blood pressure. An added bonus is that studies suggest that exercise not only reduces the risk for cardiovascular and other diseases, but can help prevent obesity, which is another high blood pressure risk factor.


Better Health in Just 30 days!

Exercise is said to be the foundation for successful behavioral change programs. Gym memberships can be a hassle, so I investigated several health and fitness options available that with a small investment you can now own a great home gym, and with your home gym is just a few clicks away. Exercise has been shown to make people feel positive about themselves and helps to reduce stress, a factor that not only raises blood pressure, but makes you feel less inclined to stick to the positive plans you’ve set in motion.


House of Nutrition

Eating well and exercising are the cornerstone to reducing your blood pressure level. However, they are not the only factors to a successful blood pressure reduction. Limiting your alcohol and caffeine intake can make an extreme difference. You should strive to drink these things only in moderation, or not at all. If you smoke, quitting can also make a profound difference.

These are not things to be taken lightly. You may find that you cannot simply give these things up. In fact, in order to completely rid yourself of these behaviors can take months, even a year or more in some instances!

Reducing stress is another highly important factor in reducing your blood pressure. However choosing the right stress relief program just for you can be all time consuming and is a lifelong task, but can prove to be one of the most important things you can do for your health. By seeing the vast variety offered.   If you find that you have stress that seems out of control, taking a stress management workshop may be in your future.

Though it is said that diet and exercise can reduce the need for blood pressure medication, it is important to discuss any and all lifestyle changes with your doctor, who can instruct you in any reduction of your current medication dosages.

Family Health

Healthy families

Good health is critical for our sense of well-being and our ability to enjoy life. As adults we easily understand this. Yet many adults in our society still lean towards convenience rather than health. Even for their children, I see too many well to do parents in their fifty thousand dollar cars waiting in line at some fast food drive thru as their kids rustle impatiently in the back seat. They can’t seem to wait to get their mouths filled with processed by-products and saturated fats.

Sad to see that today’s parents as a personal choice would rather work long hours to earn enough to drive a nice car than to invest that time to feed their children what they need in order to thrive and nourish their mind and bodies.

VeggieTales.com

As time passes they scratch their heads wondering why their children get older quicker with deteriorating health, and in fact many adults cannot believe it when they see what appears to be a grown man in his 30’s be astounded at the fact this man is only 16 years old and suffering the consequences to such convenience.

In reading the outstanding reporting on health and multitudes of sites on this internet talking about how our youth is suffering major complications, ranging from diabetes to cancer to even experiencing odd growth defects such as hair loss at age eighteen or having urinary dysfunctions in their 20’s really does not surprise me.

I am no doctor by any means, however it is not brain surgery or an eight year degree that it takes to figure out what is disabling the health of our future society, it all boils down to the simplistic nature that if we take life as a convenience and not slowing down in order to keep up with lifestyles and technology, our future generations will end up with a lifespan of 40yrs and not 80yrs as we have in our current generation.

Today we get amazed at the oldest living person reaching only 100yrs, but if we look back at when our life was “Natural” our race lived to be over 200yrs old.

Day to day and hour to hour our human health is becoming less and less immune to viruses and infections, and for some reason we are believing that the viruses are the ones getting stronger. In reality it’s both, we as a society health is getting weaker and thus the viruses are in fact getting stronger.

As we continue to produce more and more with less and less, there is a dynamic in health we are overlooking or simply choosing to ignore. That dynamic is that we are not taking the time to educate ourselves or even our children about health, or even bother with learning what it takes to grow and thrive in an ever deteriorating world.

New Mood with 5-htp

We all stand in awe and ask, what is happening? And why is it happening? And yet ignore the real question, Why is it important?

We get hypnotized and desensitized all at the same time. We sympathize with the parent that is having trouble with a sick child and yet the next thing we do is take our children out for a processed pizza pie and wash it all down with corn syrup and phosphoric acid (soda).

Sometimes I just want to walk over to them and ask what they feel when they hear about someone suffering from diabetes or cancer, and just watch them as they answer while continuing to feed their kids this garbage. My next question I’d ask is how you would react if you had to deal with the same health issue only with your children being the ones affected?

468x60 Adventure Books

Would I be surprised at the answer to that question? Probably not, because it would most likely be one leaning towards the fact they believe it won’t happen to them. Sad but true, and in all honesty my goal is to routinely educate and promote a healthy lifestyle and well-being.

Of course I am one to be the first to admit that I was once in their shoes. I remember there were many times I couldn’t wait to get out of school and rush over to our afterschool hangout and get me a four pattied burger, fries and a chocolate dairy shake to wash it all down with, an American tradition right?

All I can say now is I am glad I wised up. And to think I’d ever want to drink down a large cup of carbonated phosphoric acid sweetened with corn syrup and caramel coloring added for appearance just twists my stomach to the point I lose my appetite anyways.

Why is it Important?

Good health is everything as the saying goes, we are given one home to live in for the rest of our lives, one place to dwell in spiritually and emotionally, and if someone were to compliment me that I look good, I always know that it’s not the clothes I’m wearing but the hanger I hang them on.

So many ways to gauge the importance of healthy living, another important misconception that I would like to mention is that when I am told the old adage “You only live once so enjoy!” I am now able to respond, “I’m sorry but I live every day and enjoy every minute, and I will only die once.”

When I get overwhelmed and busy, the first thing to go is my attention to my physical well-being and in turn start a downward spiral, with less energy to take care of myself, leading to less care, and again to less energy. What I have seen to be the most beautiful thing in my life is finding ways to integrate taking care of my physical, mental, spiritual, and financial self all together.

Living in a place that I am able to walk to work, and stay connected to my family and organizations where I can volunteer that also serve my community and meet my need to contribute, while still nurturing friendships that feed my spiritual hunger is when all these things are connected. I find it easier to flow in life, and not only stop the downward spiral, but make it spiral up!

“True sense of health is being able to contribute to my longevity and healing while at the same time rejuvenate what I thought I’d lost.”

In short I can say that compared to most, in general I am living a healthier lifestyle with less and expect a longer life expectancy with a better self-reported health status. But not everyone can expect the same health advantages. Even knowing that all can slip out of control in an instant, I am continually grateful at the knowledge I have learned and give much pride to pass that knowledge onto others as a form of contribution to hopefully change a life for the better.

Not only is good health an immense value to me, I also help my community benefit with what I have learned. I can still say that I have not changed my habits, I just replaced my habits with better ones, and that has relieved the pressures of failing.

BestwaytoHealth.Com is a way for me to not only share these experiences but also to educate myself with all the tools I need to help promote a healthier lifestyle for my children and family and in turn help others do the same.

Since I began this site not more than seven months ago, I realized that there is a great lack of sites offering great information in a platform that is easy to navigate without getting bored reading lengthy articles that seem to go nowhere for the sole purpose of advertising products.

My desire is to give the gift of health, freedom and prosperity to the world. Our site has reached over 60 thousand readers in the last two months who genuinely prefer a healthy lifestyle, though most are still struggling in coping with life’s issues, they still seem to manage 10 minutes of their day to read thru these articles, and take the time to reward us with outstanding comments.

Indian Cuisine – Your Path to a Better You!

Indian cuisine encompasses a wide variety of regional cuisines native to India. Given the range of diversity in soil type, climate and occupations, these cuisines vary significantly from each other and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables, and fruits.  Indian food is also heavily influenced by religious and cultural choices.

The development of these cuisines has been shaped by Hindu and Jain beliefs, in particular vegetarianism which is a common dietary trend in Indian society.  There has also been Arab influence on North Indian cuisine from the years of Mughal and Delhi Sultanate rule.

Indian cuisine has been and is still evolving, as a result of the nation’s cultural interactions with other societies.  Historical incidents such as foreign invasions, trade relations and colonialism have also played a role in introducing certain foods to the country. For instance, potato, a staple of North Indian diet was brought to India by the Portuguese, who also introduced chilies and breadfruit.

Indian cuisine has also shaped the history of international relations, the spice trade between India and Europe is often cited by historians as the primary catalyst for Europe’s Age of Discovery.  Spices were bought from India and traded around Europe and Asia. It has also influenced other cuisines across the world, especially those from Southeast Asia, the British Isles and the Caribbean.

Indian cuisine reflects a 5000-year history of various groups and cultures interacting with the subcontinent, leading to diversity of flavors and regional cuisines found in modern-day India. Later British and Portuguese influence added to the already diverse Indian Cuisine.

The beginnings of Indian Cuisine lie with the ancient Indian civilizations of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro.  Since then, Indian Food has been influenced by a number of factors and each of these has made the food of India known the world over.

Experience yourself the diverse and wonderful dishes and experiment with cooking and tasting some of the most popular food recipes of the various regions of India. Hindu culture has a distinct style of cooking and eating.

The staples of Indian cuisine are rice, atta (a special type of whole wheat flour), and at least five dozen varieties of pulses, the most important of which are chana, toor, urad, and mung.  Chana is used in different forms, may be whole or processed in a mill that removes the skin. Most Indian curries are fried in vegetable oil, however many substitutes can be used such as coconut oil or even mustard seed oil.

The most important spices in Indian cuisine are the chili pepper, black mustard seed, cumin, turmeric, fenugreek, ginger, coriander and hing.  Another very important spice is garam masala which is usually a powder of five or more spices comprising of cardamom, cinnamon and clove.  Some leaves that are widely used is the bay leaf, coriander leaf, and mint leaf.  Typically in south Indian cuisine, curry leaves are used commonly.  In sweet dishes, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, saffron and essence of rose petal are used.

Indian Chinese cuisine originated in the 19th century among the Chinese community of Calcutta, during the immigration of Hakka Chinese from Canton (present-day Guangzhou) seeking to escape the Opium Wars and political instability in the region. Exposure to local Indian cuisine, they incorporated many spices and cooking techniques into their own cuisine, thus creating a unique fusion of Indian and Chinese cuisine.

After 1947, many Cantonese immigrants fleeing political repression under Mao Zedong, opened their own restaurants in Calcutta, whose dishes combined aspects of Indian cuisine with Cantonese cuisine. Indian Chinese cuisine is heavily derived from traditional Chinese cuisine, it bears little resemblance to its Chinese counterpart. The dishes tend to be flavored with cumin, coriander seeds, and turmeric, which with a few regional exceptions, are not traditionally associated with Chinese cuisine. Chili, ginger, garlic and yogurt are also frequently used in dishes.

 

Popular dishes include Chicken Manchurian, Chicken lollipop, Chili chicken, Hakka noodles, Hunan chicken, and Szechwan fried rice. Soups such as man chow soup and sweet corn soup are very popular, whereas famous desserts include ice cream on honey-fried noodles and date pancakes. Indians consider a healthy breakfast (known in North India as nashta) important. They generally prefer to drink tea or coffee with breakfast, though food preferences vary regionally. North Indian people prefer roti, parathas, and a vegetable dish, accompanied by achar (pickles) and some curd. People of western India prefer dhokla and milk and South Indians prefer idlis and dosas, generally accompanied by various chutneys.

Lunch in India usually consists of a main dish of rice in the south and east, or whole wheat rotis in the north and west. It typically includes two or three kinds of vegetables, and sometimes items such as kulcha, naan, or parathas. Along with dessert, paan (betel leaves), which aid digestion, are often eaten after lunch in parts of India. Indian families often gather for “evening breakfast,” similar to tea time to talk, drink tea and eat snacks. Dinner is considered as the main meal of the day.

There are many dietary restrictions that people follow based on the religion or faith they profess. Muslims in India do not eat pork and many Hindu communities consider beef taboo. Since it is believed that Hindu scriptures condemn cow slaughter, beef consumption has been banned in many states in India. Followers of the Swaminarayan sect do not eat garlic and onions because they are advised against it in the Vachanamrut. Jains follow a strict form of vegetarianism, known as Jain vegetarianism, which in addition to being completely vegetarian, also excludes potatoes and other root vegetables because when the root is pulled up, organisms that live around the root also die.

Traditionally, meals in India were eaten while seated either on the floor or on very low stools or cushions. Food is most often eaten with the right hand rather than cutlery. Often roti is used to scoop curry without allowing it to touch the hands. In the wheat-producing north, a piece of roti is gripped with the thumb and middle finger and ripped off while holding the roti down with the index finger. Traditional serving styles vary regionally throughout India. Contact with other cultures has affected Indian dining etiquette. For example, the Anglo-Indian middle class commonly uses spoons and forks, as is traditional in Western culture.

In South India, cleaned banana leaves, which can be disposed of after meals, are used for serving food. When hot food is served on banana leaves, the leaves add distinctive aromas and taste to the food. Leaf plates are less common today, except on special occasions.

Maintain Muscle with Weights

Couple fitness

We all know that with exercise and proper weight management our muscles can live a longer and more productive lifestyle. When it comes to routine bodily movements, nothing makes them stronger than exercising regularly. Along with aging comes muscle loss, so it is important that we maintain a proper weight to muscle ratio and keep fat to a minimum. The loss of muscle leads to weakness and when combined with unnecessary weight gain along with a sedentary lifestyle, is when we begin to see contributing issues.

At a more advanced age, is when osteoporosis or weakness in our bodies begins to creep in, we then have a greater risk to falls and this can also lead to the eventual inability to walk without the assistance of a walker or a wheelchair. While it is impossible to stop muscle loss with aging, weight lifting can increase muscle size and strength in people of all ages.

Be Fit.  Be Strong.  Be Bowflex.

Weight training does not imply you need to change your lifestyle, or think that by training with weights you will begin to look like the typical muscle builders we see, like the incredible hulk. On the contrary, regular lifting of weight in a controlled setting can maintain the muscle mass we loose with aging and therefore keep a healthy appearance and strength as we age. The benefits we gain only increases as we get older. Strength training also promotes to build bone and muscle which are the two primary things our bodies gradually loose with age.

People tend to think that weight lifting is a hobby for the young and fit, but its way more than that. Lifting weights a few times a week is a powerfully beneficial lifestyle change. This is a form of exercise for everyone no matter your age, physical fitness level or medical condition, including those with back pain, arthritis, a previous heart attack, stroke or other neurological problems.

On the contrary, by adding regular weight training on a gradual level and on a regular basis a lot of these symptoms can either be reversed or even prevented by a regimen of regular exercise and proper nutrition.

SelectTech Dumbells

For many older people with these types of complications the best place to start is with physical therapy, where a program can be designed to lessen pain and improve function. When physical therapy ends, continued weight training is essential. My advice is to invest in a small set of weights and begin to build your home equipment gradually. Take a portion of your day and dedicate it to you and your body. No matter your level of fitness, simple weights is a great place to start, and this will avoid the costly ongoing expense of a health club membership.

Another important step is to get connected with a nutrition based and informative website on the internet that for free can give you motivation and most importantly information to build a satisfying workout routine. No need to invest huge amounts of money when the internet has so much information available to you at no charge. Light weight training does not require the supervision of any professional. Your body will tell you if you’re doing too much or too little. However regular visits to internet sites will provide the adequate information you need.

Initially do not overdo yourself. This is not a competition or a race to train for an upcoming marathon. This is simply a routine to get you started in making the initial change in your lifestyle and get you and your body accustomed to training regularly and on schedule. Besides any type of changes to benefit your lifestyle is always a positive change compared to where you would be if you remained the same.

Remember our bodies deteriorate with time, so any form of physical activity regularly will slow this process down and give you a more productive and energetic feeling of remaining healthy.

Keeping in mind that just because you added this physical activity it does not mean you can now double up on your eating habits. On the contrary, maintain your current habits and you will see maintenance of your body instead of weight gain. However if you just simply change to a healthier eating habit along with the increase in physical activity little by little this will help you burn those unwanted or unneeded calories and decrease muscle loss.

As your body becomes accustomed to the weights you are lifting you may then want to consider increasing the weight gradually without increasing frequency in your workout routines. This in turn will slowly build more muscle and you will begin to see more tone in your body as the fat slowly burns away by feeding the muscle what it needs to grow and allow your body to process the fat you have without adding additional fat to your system.

Weight training should be done in proper form and technique, that’s why it is very important to consult you online site of preference and get the information you need. If you don’t feel you can get this information online you may want to consider hiring a professional trainer or consult with your physician as to the proper routine that is best for you. Many trainers offer their professional expertise by advertising in local media ads or the paper. Find someone that is local to you.

The importance of all this is that you slowly gain confidence with the changes you are making to insure that these changes and routines will grow on to you rather than starting extreme and make you lose interest as most do and get back to what you are used to, eating unhealthy while lying stagnant and idle. Motivation is key to continue asking and answering to yourself, at what level of fitness do you want your body to achieve and if not are you willing to cope with the unnecessary loss of your health over time.

Bowflex Treadclimber

Many of those who belong to a health club, young and old, tend to lift weights that don’t appear very heavy. Lifting a small amount of weight that hardly taxes you reserves isn’t worth the effort. In practical terms this means choosing weights that are sufficiently heavy that the muscle is virtually exhausted after six to eight repetitions of the exercise.

Exercises should involve every muscle group, including those on the arms, legs, back and abdomen. Each exercise should be done in sets. During the first set the tenth repetition should be difficult, during the second set, only eight repetitions should be possible, and the final set, you should only be able to manage five or six.

Bowflex Home Gyms Financing Available

Exhausting the muscle leads to muscle growth and increased strength. It is hard work, but it’s the only way to build strength needed for optimal fitness. You will be a little sore when you start out. However the soreness goes away and soon you will find that you will fell refreshed and energized and that the effort is well worth the sweat involved. Don’t worry about your weight or shape, instead stretch, do balance and aerobic exercises and weight train to guarantee a longer and more independent life.

All this will eventually help you relieve the stresses of everyday life, and will add a healthy boost to your physical and emotional wellness. You will notice that you will begin to sleep better and thru the whole night. Exercise offers a great way to re-energize, rejuvenate and reconnect with the healthy you.

Whether you are on a shoestring budget or ready for the big splurge, weight lifting is a great way to maintain and regain your vitality and youth that otherwise you may have neglected for a quite a while. Don’t forget to craft a mission that defines the focus of your goals and tread on thru.

Get Regal with Your Kegel

ManWoman3Thinking Kegel exercises are just for women, well think again!

First you need to clearly know what Kegels muscles are.  First announced in 1948 by Dr. Arnold Kegel, a Kegel is a pelvic floor exercise, more commonly called a Kegel exercise.  This consists of repeatedly contracting and relaxing the muscles that form part of the pelvic floor, now sometimes colloquially referred to as the “Kegel muscles”.

 

Kegel Exercises are for both men and women and are focused on strengthening the muscles that are responsible for controlling your pelvic floor. With the right practice Kegel exercises can be done discreetly just about anytime and anywhere. These muscles support your bladder and bowel and also affect and improve sexual function.

Many factors can weaken your pelvic floor muscles, including the surgical removal of the prostate called (radical prostatectomy) and also the conditions of diabetes and an overactive bladder.

The benefits of doing Kegel exercises is being able to correct if not completely free yourself of urinary or fecal incontinence.  If you dribble after urination shortly after you left the bathroom, studies suggest that you may be experiencing a weak pelvic floor.

sum4s5_1

How to do Kegel Exercises;

First you need to find the right muscles and identify which muscles they are.  A simple way of doing this is to stop urination mid-stream and tighten the muscles that keep you from passing gas.  These are your pelvic floor muscles.  For men, if you contract your pelvic floor muscles while looking in the mirror, the base of your penis will move closer to your abdomen and your testicles will rise.

Dr. Williams' Joint Advantage Gold

Kegel is a popular prescribed exercise for pregnant women to prepare the pelvic floor for physiological stresses of the later stages of pregnancy and childbirth.  Kegel exercises are said to be good for treating vaginal prolapse and preventing uterine prolapse.  The many actions performed by Kegel muscles include holding in urine and avoiding defecation.

Reproducing this type of muscle action can strengthen the Kegel muscles. The action of slowing or stopping the flow of urine may be used as a test of correct pelvic floor exercise technique but should not be practiced as a regular exercise to urinary retention.

Perfect your technique;

Once you have identified your pelvic floor muscles, empty your bladder and lie on your back with your knees bent and apart.  Tighten your pelvic floor muscles, hold the contraction for three seconds and then relax for three seconds.  Try it a few times in a row and do not overdo it.  Slowly with regular reps, your pelvic floor muscles will get stronger, and then try doing the Kegel exercise while sitting, standing or walking.

kegelexercisepelvicfloor

Maintain your focus;

As with any repetitious exercise, to achieve the best results, focus on tightening only your pelvic floor muscles.  Be careful not to flex the muscles in your abdomen, thighs or buttocks.  Avoid holding your breath and breathe evenly and freely throughout the exercise.  Release and repeat three times per day and aim for at least three sets of ten repetitions per day.

When to do your Kegels;

Make Kegel exercises part of your workout routine and daily routine.  Fit in a set every time you do a routine task such as brushing your teeth or shaving.  While taking a shower or simply waiting in line at the bank.  Do another set each time after you urinate or have a bowel movement, this will also aid in getting rid of those last few drops of urine. Contract your pelvic floor muscles just before or during any activity that puts pressure on your abdomen, such as sneezing, coughing, laughing or heavy lifting.  By now you should have at least completed two reps or more just by reading this post.

Dr. Sinatra's NattoPlus

If you’re having trouble;

If you’re experiencing difficulties doing Kegel exercises, don’t be embarrassed to ask for help.  And I am not suggesting you hire a Kegel personal trainer or a spotter.  Ask your doctor or any other health care provider to give you important feedback so that you can effectively learn to isolate and strengthen the correct muscles. In some cases, biofeedback training may also help.  In a biofeedback session, your doctor inserts a small probe into your rectum.  As you relax and contract your pelvic floor muscles, a monitor displays the measure of your pelvic floor activity.

How and when to expect results;

If you do your Kegels regularly, you can expect results in as little as noticing less frequent urine leakage.  Usually within three to six weeks.  For continued benefits, make Kegel exercises a permanent part of your daily routine. Both male and female, urinary incontinence is preventable and manageable without extreme medications or surgery.  Much like many other ailments troubling our society today, prevention is key, however if prevention is a little too late coming, these exercises and routines will help improve your quality of life and continue “Your Path to a Better You!”

Dr. Lark's Energy Vitalizer

A tip to make Kegel exercises a habit;

Stay consistent, do your exercises at the same time each day, maybe first thing in the morning or as you watch the nightly news about the exciting advances of bestwaytohealth.com or even when reading the paper about us.  Always remember the benefits outweigh the obvious and costly medical corrective measures found in today’s medicinal practices, and lastly pay attention to your progress.  Over time you will see and notice awesome results and improvement.

Dairy Free Pasta Alfredo

Dairy Free Alfredo!A little about the history of Alfredo Sauce. Alfredo sauce also known as Fettuccine Alfredo, is a very rich and creamy, dairy based sauce blended with Butter, Heavy Whipping Cream and Parmesan cheese. A dairy lover’s delight, it is usually served over a bed of Fettuccine. Various combinations of Chicken, even occasionally served with ham or bacon. Either way it does not have to include meat. A great variation is shrimp or even steamed clams.

 

 

Bartolini Gourmet Foods at DiBruno.com

 

The dilemma however is, what can a non-dairy person like me do to enjoy the wonderful flavor of this culinary wonderland? Well many variations of non-dairy are out there for the culinary appetites but none of them come close to satisfying the essence of a true Alfredo sauce, until now.

I have been an avid consumer of dairy products for some time. With a passionate love for milk, cheese, and ricotta and of course Parmesan and mozzarella, I have countless number of recipes that include one or more of the various types of cheeses, creams, butter and milk.

Since my recent discovery on how milk and dairy affects the digestive system, and since the increasing need to use antibiotics in dairy cows, I have lost the taste or even desire to consume anything to do with milk products.

Live Superfoods - The Raw Superfoods Superstore

However my desire for a rich and creamy sauce has not gone away and I spent hours and hours trying to formulate a copy that comes close to the richness and flavor of this Italian staple.

Many trial and errors and countless disappointments I finally managed to create a “Non-Dairy” version of Alfredo Sauce with the same texture and essence. I trust you will enjoy this substitute as much as I.

Please try this at home!

Ingredients;

1 Cup of Almond Milk
½ Cup of Coconut Milk
2 Egg Whites
2 Tbs. of Olive Oil
½ Cup of Finely Crushed Pine Nuts
2 Tbs. of finely chopped Garlic
1 Tbs. Garlic Powder
¼ Tsp. Cream of Tartar
½ Tsp. of Ground Cumin
¼ Tsp. Nutmeg
½ Tsp. Salt

Preparation;

In a glass bowl add 1 Tbs. of Olive Oil, Egg Whites and Cream of Tartar. Whisk rapidly together until egg whites come to a rich froth. Add the coconut milk and whisk some more until well blended, add the almond milk and continue to whisk until the mixture is very well blended.

Heat a saucepan to medium heat, add the remaining olive oil and chopped garlic. Cook the garlic just prior to browning and add the blended egg white mixture from the bowl. In the saucepan whisk until mixture thickens slightly and add the finely crushed pine nuts and dry spices. This will cause the foam of the heated sauce to settle.

Cook until the sauce thickens and serve over pasta or your choice. Add desired pasta toppings and you’re done!

Live Superfoods - The Raw Superfoods Superstore

Dinner is served, and sauce is enough for pasta to serve 6 hungry, lactose intolerant guests who have been craving pasta Alfredo for years!

We trust you enjoy this creation and hope to see your comments below as to how you like it. I have served it to many and they all seemed to enjoy it very much.

Pet Health 101

Dog n CatEvery pet requires different and specific needs. That’s why it is extremely important to select the right pet for you or your family. In this article we cover the different needs associated with certain pets. Though there are so many pets in our environment today, we will try to cover most of the most common. If for any reason you would like to see coverage on a specific pet that you may have that is out of the ordinary, simply comment below and we will attempt to publish one especially for you.

 

 

PetAlive Natural Remedies for Pets

 

Puppies and Dogs;
This section contains information about the things your dog needs to have a safe and comfortable environment.

The ideal environment for your puppy or dog;
To ensure dogs have a comfortable environment it is important for them to have their own dog bed where they can rest undisturbed. Poisonous or hazardous items in the home or garden should be kept safely out of reach. Safety when travelling in a vehicle is also important and dogs should ideally travel on the back seat with a seatbelt or secured behind a dog guard. It is also vital that all dogs get the opportunity to exercise on a daily basis.

A comfortable dog bed;
A cozy bed is important for dogs. This should be kept in a quiet, dry, draught-free area. Make sure you choose one that can be cleaned easily and thoroughly, and do this regularly.

Cleaning up after your dog;
Part of providing a suitable environment is making it clean and hygienic. Dog feces can transmit diseases, as well as parasites such as worms. Make sure you clean up after your dog using a plastic bag or ’pooper scooper‘, especially if there are children around. Dog owners and people responsible for dogs have a legal obligation to do this when in a public place, under the Clean Neighborhoods and Environment Act 2005.

BELT UP – Travel safety concerns as dogs roam free in the car.

The ideal diet for your puppy or dog;
Commercial dog food is preferable to a homemade diet. It is not easy to achieve the correct balance of nutrients if you make a dog’s diet yourself. Treats should only be given for training purposes or on a very occasional basis, and on days when a treat is fed, the amount of food given in the dog’s main meal should be reduced. Life stage (i.e. whether puppy, junior, adult or senior) and packet guidelines as well as weight and body shape should be taken into account when choosing what and how much to feed a dog.

Puppies

When should a puppy start to eat solid food?
Puppies are usually ready to eat solid food when they are about five weeks old.

How often should I feed my puppy?
Initially, puppies need four meals a day but this can be reduced to three a day at about 12 weeks. At six months, they can have two meals a day, which can continue for the rest of their life.

Dogs

What should I feed my dog?
Your dog needs a healthy, balanced diet that meets all their nutritional needs.
Feeding a complete, commercial dog food is normally preferable to a homemade diet. It’s not easy to achieve the correct balance of nutrients if you make your dog’s diet yourself.

Do dogs of different ages need different food?
One of the best ways of making sure you give your dog the necessary nutrients is to feed according to ‘life stage’. This means feeding a different diet depending on whether your dog is a puppy, adult or senior dog, because dogs of different ages have different nutrient requirements. For example, puppies need more calories in their food because they are so energetic. Several leading brands of commercially available dog food offer different foods for different life stages.

How much food should I give my dog?
Follow the packet feeding guidelines so that you know how much to feed. Weigh the food out to check you’re getting it right. Feeding the right amount of food is important because obesity is the commonest nutritional problem seen by vets and causes health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis.

How often should I feed my dog?
It’s generally best to feed an adult dog twice a day. Avoid feeding your dog immediately before travelling, to avoid travel sickness, or within an hour before or after vigorous exercise as this can lead to a dangerous condition called ’bloat’.

What treats can I give my dog?
Most dog foods these days are complete, meaning they contain all the nutrients that a dog needs, in the right amounts. If extra food is given, as treats, your dog must do something with the extra calories. If your dog isn’t being exercised enough, the calories will be turned into fat.

Kittens and Cats;
Kittens and cats, like all animals, need five things to be healthy and happy; these are called the five welfare needs. Under the Animal Welfare Act (2006) all owners need to provide these five things for the pets they keep. The sections below give information on how to meet the five welfare needs for kittens and cats.

The ideal environment for your kitten or cat;
Cats need somewhere comfortable to sleep and rest undisturbed, as well as constant access to safe hiding places. Cats often feel most secure when they are high up, so they should be given safe access to resting places on top of furniture such as cupboards or shelves. If cats are living together in the same household they must be provided with enough of the things they need (e.g. food and water bowls, litter trays, cat beds etc.).

A general rule is that owners should provide as many of these items as the number of cats, plus one (so a two-cat household should have three litter trays). They should be positioned around the house so that the cats do not have to come in to contact with each other if they do not want to.

A comfortable place to sleep and rest;

What type of bed does my cat need?
Cats need a cozy bed in a quiet, dry, draught-free area. Some cats prefer soft beds with a roof – especially suitable for a shy cat – whereas others prefer an open basket lined with soft bedding. The bedding should be easily cleaned and washed weekly.

I have more than one cat – how many beds do they need?
If you have more than one cat you will need to provide separate beds for each cat, which are well apart from each other in your house. A good general rule is to provide one more sleeping area than the number of cats – so if you have two cats, provide three beds.

Do cats need access to high places?
Cats feel safest when they are high up, and this gives them a sense of security in their living environment. They should have safe access to places like shelves or tops of cupboards.

Do cats need somewhere to hide?
Cats like places where they can go to hide. If they don’t have anywhere suitable they can become stressed. Ideally they need an enclosed bed or box, or safe access to underneath a chair or bed.

The ideal diet for your kitten or cat;
Cats are true carnivores, meaning they have to eat certain nutrients that are only found in meat or commercial cat food. It is preferable to feed a complete commercial cat food to achieve the correct balance of nutrients. Cats do not need treats and should only be given healthy treats occasionally, if at all, to avoid becoming obese. A cat’s age, weight and shape, alongside packet feeding guidelines and veterinary advice, should be taken into account when deciding how much to feed a cat.

Kittens

When should a kitten start to eat solid food?

Feeding the right amount of food is important because obesity is the commonest nutritional problem seen by vets and causes health problems such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis.

How often should I feed my cat?
It’s a good idea to weigh out your cat’s food at the start of the day, following the packet feeding guidelines. Then you can put the entire measured amount down at once, give it as several small meals or divide it into a meal for morning and one for evening. It depends on the cat’s preference and your lifestyle but you should try to cater for your cat’s preferences as far as you can.

What treats can I give my cat?
Most cat foods these days are complete, meaning they contain all the nutrients that a cat needs, in the right amounts. If extra food is given, as treats, your cat must do something with the extra calories. If your cat isn’t exercising enough (which can be a problem with cats kept permanently indoors), the calories will be turned into fat.  Cat obesity is a big problem and causes health problems such as diabetes, arthritis and heart disease.

You can show your affection for your cat in ways other than food. Lots of cats enjoy playing games with their owners, as well as affection. You don’t need to use food to show cats that you love them. If you can’t resist feeding treats once in a while, give a small amount of lean meat. Reduce the amount of food in their main meals that day, so that the overall amount fed stays the same.

If that sounds like you, then you might be interested in alpha mind power techniques that anyone can use in the comfort of their own home to help themselves feel more confident and actually have better health as a result of it. These alpha mind power techniques are all about putting your mind over matter and trying to seek out the thoughts that will be best for you personally. Basically, when someone goes through their day, they are very likely to have a lot of negative thoughts crop up into their mind.

Our minds are so overburdened on a day to day basis that it is nice to just calm the mind and try to relax your muscles. Although some may claim that the techniques being used here are not legitimate, they have had real health benefits for millions who have used them, so there is clearly something going on.

Alpha Mind Power is the ability to focus and stay focused on your goal at hand.  Satisfaction comes from embracing your minds potential to increase your success in anything you do or want to accomplish.  As we spend the day distracted, our mind is burdened with all sorts of thoughts.  Before your workout or even before you start your day.  Just take a few minutes and close your eyes, take three slow deep breaths and begin to visualize a place in your mind that you feel at ease in.

Then as you slowly quiet your mind, generate a vision of your goal and the end result you want to achieve.  As you begin to master this exercise, you will see great results and ease of achieving your goals.  Whether it’s to have a body everyone wishes they could have to building up your bank accounts and getting rid of debt.  Whatever your goal is, it all begins with your Alpha Mind Power and your ability to shut out all negatives in your life.

Success is just a pattern of thoughts and processes of visualizing the end result.  Though all actions require you take the necessary steps as you inch your way to your goal, your ability to focus into what matters most to you will prove its use in your day to day accomplishments of your goals.


Alpha BRAIN. Ideal Food For A Great Mind.

If for any reason you feel a lack in your ability to focus, practice more and more to quiet your mind.  Clear all negative thoughts and negative noises and interference from your life.  Even if it is just for 10 minutes, practice this first before you venture into zone of your Alpha Mind Power and then you will be able to focus better and achieve your end result.

You can also reference our YouTube playlists to get video instruction and techniques on how to better achieve this and tap into your minds power of healing.

As you get more and more versatile in this practice you will be able to use and tap into this energy anywhere you are even if you’re at home, in your car and even during a stressful time and place that you find yourself overburdened by exterior influences. When you reach this ability use it to focus even on the parts of your body you wish to improve, like your abs, arms chest and even your gluteus.

By learning to focus this amazing healing energy to the parts of your body that you feel needs improvement, even the common cold can be healed in a matter of days and not weeks.
