Who Would Have Known Your Belly Button Is So Amazing😁

 

 

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

Did You Know – 8/06/2018

1. The Hawaiian Alphabet has only 13 letters. It includes five vowels and eight consonants

2. Smart Bandages – Researchers at Tufts University USA have come up with a brilliant innovative tech. Although only in the clinical trial period, if successful it could put an end to infections and amputations in people who have chronic skin wounds.

This bandage which looks like a clear sticking plaster houses both heat and PH detecting sensors together with a dose of thermally activated medicine. Infected wounds and burns generate higher temperatures and Ph levels that healthy skin, so as soon as the sensors notice anything out of the norm they send a drug releasing microbes straight to the area.
It appears there are many Universities looking into this so I guess it is something that we can look forward to in the future.

3. Sex and Fruit – According to Dr Yen Ying Lim, of the Cognitive aging laboratory at the Florey institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health in Victoria, Australia, having sex on a regular basis and heaps of fruit especially berries and cherries help your memory work at its best. Things that break down the protection of our brain are inactivity, being Obese, high cholesterol and blood pressure.

4. Clench your fist – While we are on the subject of Memory researchers of the Montclair State University in the USA have discovered that making a fist seems to help memory and recall.
Clench your right fist when you want to remember something and clench your left fist later to help recollect the memory.

5. An Orange a Day Keeps macular degeneration away – Researchers from Westmead institute discovered that by eating one orange a day the flavonoids they contain helps to prevent macular degeneration. Try changing from an apple a day to the orange a day and you may have happy eyes

  1. It does not matter what size the eyes happen to be on humans and animals alikee, longest eye lashes length are always 1/3 the width of the eyes. Apparently they are just the right length to minimize air flow over the eye-ball so it does not dry out and helps keep out the dust. Source

 

2. How to tell if the eggs you are about to purchase are fresh. 

The number next to the expiration date, say for example 268.This is the number of days in the year (25th September) when those eggs were placed in the carton. The sell by date is say 14th November. Those eggs have been in that carton for 45 days by that date. Not so fresh in my opinion.

The example above – 211 days is July 30 so by the sell by date those eggs will have been in the carton just under a month.

3. Richard Nixon once smuggled a suitcase full of weed through the airport for Louis Armstrong.

According to Snopes .

Supposedly true Louis Armstrong was flying back from Europe, and on the same plane was
then-Congressman Richard Nixon. Nixon was apparently a fan of Louis and
they chatted throughout the flight.

When they arrived in New York, Louis said to Nixon, listen I’m an old man
and I’ve got all this stuff to carry, why don’t you carry my trumpet for
me and help me out?

And that is the story of how Richard Nixon carried Louis Armstrong’s stash
of weed through customs at the New York airport

 

4. Now here is a word we can all use often with some people.  If someone gives opinions on topics they know nothing about, they’re an ultracrepidarian.

5.  Earth used to be covered with giant mushrooms that were 24 feet tall and three feet wide, instead of trees.

From around 420 to 350 million years ago, when land plants were still the relatively new kids on the evolutionary block and “the tallest trees stood just a few feet high,” giant spires of life poked from the Earth. “The ancient organism boasted trunks up to 24 feet (8 meters) high and as wide as three feet (one meter),” said National Geographic in 2007.  With the help of a fossil dug up in Saudi Arabia scientists finally figured out what the giant creature was: a fungus. (We think.)

The towering fungus spires would have stood out against a landscape scarce of such giants, said New Scientist in 2007.

a. Lie on your front with your head to one side. Rest your arms either side of your head, placing your hands on the floor close to your crown.

b. Take a few moments to settle and get comfortable. Relax and soften your facial muscles, let your eyes close and become aware of your breath. Let your whole body melt into the floor as you exhale.

c. As you inhale fully notice how your belly softly presses int the ground then as you exhale, how it gently retracts again.

d. As you breathe slowly and naturally, move your attention to your ribcage and notice how the side ribs move, widening as you inhale and drawing back as you exhale. Just notice this movement and allow it to be easy without changing it.

e. Widen your attention to focus on your lower back. Feel how it expands and opens as you breathe in and softens and releases down as you breathe out.

f. Turn your head to the other side to even out the stretch and breathe with the same deep awareness for a few more minutes.

g. Come onto all fours, softly spreading your hands open and feeling your  back wide and long. Keep your hands under your shoulders and your knees under your hips. Gently bring your feet together and as you breathe out draw your hips back to your heels, then ease your butt back until it touches your feet to create a gentle stretch through your spine. (Child pose in yoga).

h. Release your ribs down onto your thighs and lower your chest and shoulders to bring your arms and forehead to relax on the floor. Rest here completely surrendering your body to gravity.

After that you should be feeling a lot calmer
