This Is An Amazing Transformation

This stuff works. This family should be very proud of themselves. I have just been introduced to the product by ‘Isagenix’ and so far have been very impressed. If you have a weight problem or just want to lose a few pounds or kilo’s take a look and read up about it. I believe this to be the one thing that will work for you.

Great story.

 

“One year ago, Michelle and I started our life-changing journey. Unsure at the time if we would like it or even see results, we were willing to say yes and give it a try. It took us less than a week to realize that Isagenix was the lifestyle we desperately needed. I still can’t believe the outstanding positive changes it has brought to our lives in the past year.

What started out as a way for me and Michelle to improve our own health and wellness has created a ripple effect throughout our entire family. Our daughter, Paige, joined us in January, followed by our son, Zane, who hopped on the health train a month later. I can say without a doubt that

we’ve had many meaningful family experiences simply because we decided to make a long-term commitment to the system. ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This new lifestyle has changed our children’s lives in so many positive ways. I can see they have more confidence, self-esteem, energy, and enthusiasm as well as a willingness to pursue things they have never done before. To date, they’ve tried hiking, kayaking, and running, and we all have gym memberships now, too!

It’s not about weight loss anymore. Reinventing our quality of life was an unexpected effect that has become the sustainable goal. We’ve easily adjusted our mindset to ‘eating to live, not living to eat,’ and collectively, we are down more than 330 pounds!* Our family is always happy and excited to share our experience with anyone who wants to learn how to make a change.”

Great Health Reasons to Go BareFeet

 

How often do most of us go without shoes. Maybe on the couch watching tv.
Research has found that walking bare feet has great health benefits for the body that has not been recognized.

1. Helps reduce inflammation: Experts on earthing and grounding believe that this practice can help improve circulation which means that the nutrition for your body improves and expels toxins. It has been observed that it also helps to reduce swelling.

2. Reduces Stress hormones – ‘One double-blind study that investigated the effects of earthing (going barefoot) on 58 healthy adults used conductive adhesive patches placed on the sole of each participant’s foot to read their electrical signals. The subjects were exposed to 28 minutes in the unearthed condition followed by 28 minutes with the earthing wire connected. Controls were unearthed for 56 minutes.

After earthing, about half the subjects showed “an abrupt, almost instantaneous change in root mean square (rms) values of electroencephalograms (EEGs) from the left hemisphere of the brain.” These changes are believed to signify positive changes and lower stress reactions.’ (Dr Axe).

3. Helps with sleep: – After earthing, (Barefoot) levels of cortisol are more in line with the natural rhythms of the earth and sun: There is higher cortisol early in the morning when we naturally need more to feel alert and awake, then they had lower cortisol at night-time when we need to unwind in order to fall asleep for the night.

4. Helps increase energy: – Earthing or Grounding helps fight the craving for low energy foods, sugar that result in more calories.

5. Can help lower back pain: – Research has shown that grounding the body to the earth altered measures of immune system activity and pain. Among the ungrounded men, there was an expected, sharp increase in white blood cells (sign of an inflammatory response) and greater perception of pain after exercise. Grounded men had only a slight decrease in white blood cells, indicating less inflammation and experienced shorter recovery times.

How To Start Earthing

There is nothing that beats ‘Earthing or Grounding” than simply going barefoot. The beach, mowing the lawn, climbing hills, sitting on a chair with bare feet on the ground, gardening barefoot, BBQ barefoot.

There are products that are sold that will help with earthing but none better than plain old barefoot.

There is an electrically charged bed that has been created and features silver wires that are connected to the electrical charge of the earth once plugged into an “earthing” port. They say it is almost like sleeping outside in the grass.

Anyway if you want to read more about this go to the website of DrAxe and it will be explained in detail

The Movement Of Qi And Its Association With Sleep Cycle

 

 

woman-sleeping

More often than not, we are told to swallow some pills if there is something wrong in our bodies, but that does not necessarily fix it; as there may be a deeper, more psychological issue that is manifested into the physical ills we have.

Traditional Chinese Medicine And Qi
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) says that your body runs on a clock with energy highways or meridians called ‘Qi’, which also run everywhere on Earth. The Qi in our bodies transport and keep vitals such as, blood, adrenaline, and other fluids in constant circulation, including carrying emotional elements.

So, when your body is well, it means that your body’s Qi is flowing smoothly, but when you are sick or ill, it means that your Qi is being blocked in some parts of your body or is low in circulation overall.

The Movement Of Qi

Qi is said to move every two hours, stopping at different parts of the body each time, till the organ reaches its optimum level, and then it goes to the next stop. However, when one organ reaches its peak, an organ or body part in the opposite side of the body reaches the lowest level, to balance the act.

The Transfer Of Energy – Yin and Yang

Likewise, when ‘Qi’ passes through, what takes place during those two hours is, Yin – getting energy and Yang – releasing energy. Yes, this is one of the many meanings of Yin-Yang, that black and white circular symbol you so often see.

What Your Sleep Interruption Time Tells You

Based on the above information, the time at which your sleep gets interrupted can predict the probable ailment your body has. They are mentioned below:

Between 11 pm To 1 am

Organ Affected And Association

Gall bladder issues. It is usually associated with being let down or disappointment.

Solution

Need to work on accepting and forgiving yourself, life and others.

Between 1 am To 3 am

Organ Affected And Association

Liver problems. It is associated with anger or having grudges.

Solution

Need to drink a lot of cold water and balance your mind.
Accept the situation and channel your anger into something productive.
Between 3 am To 5 am

Organ Affected And Association

Lungs issues. It is related to sadness.

Solution

This means that there is a need for you to let go of these emotions, and reconnect with a more positive side of yourself.
Think of this low mood as a trying reason for you to find a higher purpose in life, and uplift your spirits.
Between 5 am To 7 am

Organ Affected And Association

Large intestine issues. It is associated with emotional blocks such as regret, guilt, lethargy, or being stuck in a constant emotional state.

Solution

Drink enough water.
Do some stretches.
Regulate the times you use the bathroom.
Eventually, set a sleeping routine.
Things are never always what they seem and if we are waking up at odd hours of the night, these could be some reasons for that wake-up call. The key is to interpret and see what these signs mean, try to get to the root of the issue and smoothen the Qi again, beyond just popping a pill to fix everything.

Meridians – Science Now Recognizes that They Do Exist.

 

Meridians3

Meridians ? Well you may ask. They are the vibrational energy that flows through your body. 

Your health revolves around this energy.  Your health revolves around balanced energy. It affects your digestion, breathe, thinking and your emotions.

If your meridians are not producing balanced energy then that is when illness of some form can develop. This vital life force or chi, is composed of two kinds of forces, yin and yang. (I am sure most of us have heard of these terms).

The healing traditions from China, India, Japan and Tibet, as well as other countries all spoke of energy channels, meridians or nadis along which the vital energy flowed. 

“The current Korean researchers now believe the primo-vascular system is in fact the physical component of the Acupuncture Meridian System. And it has also been suggested that this system is involved in channelling the flow of energy and information relayed by biophotons (electromagnetic waves of light) and DNA.”

Balance is paramount. Just enough food, water and a healthy balanced lifestyle. As the Buddha said: “middle way” or moderation in all things.

This whole article on Meridians are a must read especially if you want perfect health or at least wondering why you have a symptom of imbalance may it be said, depression, unable to lose weight and keep it off, injuries that will not heal, vertigo, memory problems, all of which are caused by a body imbalance. The remedies may be Acupressure, Acupuncture, Massage technique of Shiatsu, Yoga, Qigong,Tai Chi. Any of these will help clear blockage in the energy flow that creates a disease

The website – upliftconnect.com has an amazing in-depth interesting article on this subject.

Yummy Energy Bites

I saw this recipe on the site of gimmesomoven and am off to the store to get the ingredients. Looks like a great lunch snack for the grandkids lunch and me of course.

Cranberry Pistachio Energy Bites gimmesomeoven.com:cranberry-pistachio-energy-bites:

cranberry pistachio energy bites

Ingredients

8 oz. (about 1 packed cup) chopped dates
1/2 cup honey
1 Tbsp. chia seeds (optional)
1 Tbsp. ground flax seeds or wheat germ
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats (dry, not cooked)
1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
1 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup white chocolate chips or dark chocolate chips (optional)


Method

Combine the dates, honey, chia seeds, flax seeds and salt in a food processor, and pulse until smooth and combined. You should be able to stir the mixture — if it is too thick, add in another tablespoon or two of honey.

Transfer the mixture to a large bowl, and stir in the oats, pistachios, dried cranberries, and white chocolate chips until evenly combined. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Once the mixture is cool (and easier to work with), use a spoon or cookie scoop to shape it into your desired size of energy balls. Alternately, you can line a small baking pan with parchment paper, and press the mixture evenly into the pan, let it cool, and then cut into bars.

Store covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. (Storing them in the refrigerator especially helps the energy bites hold their shape.)
