Who Would Have Known Your Belly Button Is So AmazingūüėĀ

 

 

I learn something every day and this one surprised me as I had not heard of it before. This is so logical that the belly button should be the centre of all things healing.

According to Science the first part created after conception is the navel and after it is created it joins the mothers placenta via the umbilical cord.

Thats the first amazing thing. The second being all our veins apparently are connected to our navel. Guess that is why its the centre point.

The “pechora” is behind the navel and has more than 72,000 veins. According to the article to lower the temperature of babies a cotton swab with alcohol in the navel will do the job now we know that oil is better.

They say that applying oil in the navel heals dryness of eyes, poor vision, helps pancreas , hair etc etc.

For example: Neem oil for stubborn pimples and acne. Almond oil for glowing face. Mustard oil for intestines  to remove harmful bacteria.

This is a good one – Brandy soaked in cotton ball on your belly button to ease menstrual pain and cramps.

Thyme oil help lower blood pressure and ultimately stress.

Anyway there are heaps more of suggestions

Always make sure that the pure essential oils are in a carrier like olive oil, jojoba oil or even coconut oil

Sleep – How To Make Or Break Your Sleep

IMG_0810My Granddaughter. Sleeps like an angel.

My whole day is golden when I have a good nights sleep, I can tackle anything. Bad nights sleep, then you need to stay away from me as the scorpion comes out in me and you are likely to get the ‘sting of the tail’.

I don’t sleep the way I used to. I was always a good sleeper, if my eye lids closed then so did the rest of me, my brain, my body, heart and what ever slowed down. Sleep for me today is a lot more difficult, it is harder to shut the brain down as it wants to keep having a conversation with me in the night. I can be in a deep sleep then all of a sudden I will be awake thinking of some thing that is so not important at that hour of the night. Then of course the brain does not even want to let you go to sleep in the first place.

When I see articles on the art of getting a good sleep then that always attracts my attention.

This is an article on the Natural News.com, written by Sandeep Godiyal on the good and bad foods that affect sleep.

Foods to eat and not to eat

1) Almonds and walnuts. These nuts actually contain a lot of tryptophan, magnesium, and melatonin Рa powerful trio that is known to be ideal for those who are looking for natural sleeping aids. Experts say that it is best to try to eat a handful about an hour or so before sleeping.

2) Grapefruit. This is one of the foods that people should steer clear of, as it contains acid. Nobody wants to be kept up all night because of heartburn. Grapefruits increase the acidity of the stomach, so it is expected that those who eat this before sleeping will have heartburn. If people do not want this to happen, it is best to stay away from grapefruit, as well as other citrus fruits or juices before going to bed.

3) Oatmeal. This food is mostly considered as breakfast fare, and many eat this only in the morning, but studies have shown that there are actually a lot of benefits from eating oatmeal before going to bed. Oatmeal has been found to be full of nutrients that help promote sleep, such as potassium, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium.

4) Celery. Celery is listed as a healthy vegetable, but it is considered as one that should be avoided before going to bed. Why is that so? Celery is considered a natural diuretic, and if people do not want to wake up in the middle of the night just to urinate, it would be best to steer clear of this vegetable. Other natural diuretics that people should avoid include parsley and ginger.

5) Tart cherries and raspberries. It has been found that raspberries and tart cherries have melatonin, which is a popular sleep aid.

6) Fried and greasy food. People who have a high intake of fried, fatty, and greasy foods at night tend to have less productive sleep compared to those who do not. The stomach works twice as hard just to digest the oily foods, which could then make people experience heartburn or indigestion.

7) Bananas. Bananas contain a lot of magnesium and potassium. They also contain tryptophan, which is an amino acid found in turkey, another food source that is famous for helping people who wish to have better sleep.

8) Spicy foods. Spicy foods not only irritate your digestive system, but they can also have a huge impact on your sleep. Experts say that it is best to avoid eating spicy foods before sleeping.

I can add to this.

Dark chocolate –¬†A small amount just before you retire can assist with sleep. It works for me.

Warm milk and a few drops of molasses –¬†I used to feed my babies ¬†this concoction ¬†and it was great for ¬†a good nights sleep for them and me.

Green Tea –¬†I do not have this in the evening because for some reason I find it hard to get to sleep after I drink it.

Milk Chocolate –¬†This also keeps me awake. I assume there is too much sugar in it.

Clean Sheets –¬†There is something about fresh clean sheets on the bed, I always seem to get a good nights sleep on that first night of those fresh cuddly sheets. I sprinkle a little lemon grass oil on the sheets when I make the bed.

Breathe –¬†This I know works for me. If I am a little tense and not getting to sleep I take 4 very deep breaths and I find by the time I get to the 4th one I am on my way to sleep. Make it slow and as deep as you can.

Here are some more tips that I have come to my attention

6 Top Tips For A Better Nights Sleep

Hope these suggestions help as I know there are chronic non sleepers in this world and I can only sympathize  with you because I cannot think of anything worse than not getting some form of relaxing sleep even if it only for about 4 hours. I think it has been proved that sleeping pills are not the answer and can even be worse for you as they can make you drowsy and not particularly functional during your working hours. 

Stress has a lot to answer for and as we all know stress is a cause of many problems with our health. 

Find some way to relieve your stress – Breathe, yoga, read soothing words before sleep, no murder, police tv series, find a love story on tv, have a brandy.

Good sleeping
