Your Body's Natural Way To Detox And Repair

Your Body's Natural Way To Detox And RepairBy Ray AyusoAutophagy is the natural process by which our body removes out cellular junk to let new cell growth. It makes total sense that our body needs an internal clean up to detox and repair it self. Autophagy destroys parts of the cell, proteins and cell membranes which are not functioning properly.How Autophagy WorksIt is a biological process, where the key players are tiny cells called lysosomes, which contain enzymes needed to digest and breakdown parts of the cell that no longer function properly.That said, there is a dangerous side because lysosomes are very effective and a prolonged state of autophagy can lead to cell death, a process called autolysis. So a certain amount of autophagy is good, but too much can be damaging for our health.Why this Cellular Junk Removal Process is so necessaryOur body needs to regularly clean out any junk that is lying around in our cells, or else our cells become less efficient and deteriorate.

Type 2 Diabetes and Healthy Living - Creating A Weekly Routine

Type 2 Diabetes and Healthy Living - Creating A Weekly RoutineBy Beverleigh H PiepersDo you have a routine to take care of your health? This should be an easy question to answer, as either you do or you don't. Are you trying to implement a routine? Many think it is easier said than done but realistically, it's not that hard, especially when you choose to think rationally about it.In other words, missing one day of working out when you should have gone to the gym does not mean you have failed. And a routine is not something you do temporarily, as is often the case with weight loss. A 3-month plan can be useful, but it is not ideal. What is perfect are long-term changes - particularly those without a timeline. The best way to make these changes is by creating and adopting a weekly routine.How should you get started? First, you need to consider what is most important to you. Consider the current standing of your health...

Off Of Drugs With A New Lease On Life

Off Of Drugs With A New Lease On LifeBy James J ElleybyFinally, you came up off that nasty drug habit. Most likely, you came to that realization that one of you is gonna have to die. One of you must be laid to rest. You, or the habit. Because you both can't stay here together any longer. You can't continue on the drug, because it's abusing your life. But, when you abuse drugs, then drugs will abuse you right back. That's just how the cookie crumbles, bumble bee. Now, you need a new game plan for life. You can't go back to the old way of doing things. You may not even be able to go back to good old friends you once had. Even the ties with some good family members may have been broken. Maybe you even lost the loving support of your spouse or your partner in life.You gotta go through the motions of putting the pieces of your life back together again! That ain't no joke. It's gonna take some real work, and some real effort too.Stay focused, though. The most imp…

Type 2 Diabetes - Searching For The Cause of Gestational Diabetes

Type 2 Diabetes - Searching For The Cause of Gestational DiabetesBy Beverleigh H Piepers Scientists at St. Joseph's Healthcare in Ontario Canada have reported on what could be the causes and potential prevention of Gestational diabetes or diabetes of pregnancy. In January of 2018, their work was published in the journal Placenta. The placenta feeds the fetus and partly takes over control of the mother's blood sugar level. The mother develops slight insulin resistance, and this then causes her blood sugar level to rise to enable the fetus to get sufficient levels of sugar. In Gestational diabetes too much insulin resistance develops, raising blood sugar levels to a high and unhealthy level. The placenta makes two hormones...

placental lactogen (PL), and placental variant growth hormone (GH-V), for blood sugar control. GH-V makes muscles resistant to insulin while PL is anti-insulin. In obese and diabetic mothers the placenta produces the wrong amounts of both of these hormones. …

Type 2 Diabetes - Fight Diabetes With Physical Activity

Type 2 Diabetes - Fight Diabetes With Physical ActivityBy Beverleigh H Piepers If you have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and you understand your disease, then it almost certainly brings you dread. Perhaps not a debilitating amount, but enough to leave you feeling uneasy. The potential to find yourself in a precarious or dangerous situation may be enough to fill you with fear. But fear can be a great motivator for action. When it comes to Type 2 diabetes, you may need all the motivation you can get. It is not that managing Type 2 diabetes, and high blood sugar readings are inherently challenging; it is more a matter of persistence than pure difficulty. It takes endurance especially of the mind, to win the fight against unstable blood sugar readings and the effects of Type 2 diabetes.On that note, physical activity is a powerful tool you can use to your advantage. It has the potential to facilitate what is for many people a never-ending battle against diabetes. How it is for many …

How Long Does Transformation Take?

How Long Does Transformation Take?By Steve WickhamDAY by day. That's what my wife said when I asked her how long she think it took for her to come to terms with the things she disliked about me: day by day.In other words, there was no countable timeframe.There were things that she didn't like about me, especially the things that came up for her in years two and three of our marriage (we're in our eleventh year now). These things came up in my style of parenting, as a single parent, and particularly how I related to my daughters at times in ways that left her feeling she wasn't my wife at all.So, you can imagine how hard it would be, for a new wife to find ways to both challenge her husband, yet accept what's left that cannot be changed.How long does transformation take: day by day. Sometime later, paradoxically as we've somehow learned to accept that which once tormented us, we looked back and found that transformation was complete. Not that we're perfectly…

Visualize the Future That You Want

Visualize the Future That You WantBy Daniel Blanchard As a teen there were two things that I used to do that made a huge difference in the levels of success that I was able to achieve. The two things that I did were delivering newspapers every morning before school and jogging every night after dinner.The paper route was a good thing because it taught me how to get up early every morning and allowed me to make some money. This enabled me to become more self-sufficient at an early age. However, it was not the paper route all by itself that produced the real magic that I am talking about here.Jogging every night after diner was also a good thing because it taught me to exercise regularly and helped me learn to push through fatigue and pain. It also helped me to maintain a high level of fitness and energy that enabled me to excel in both sports and in life. However, it too by itself, didn't create the magic that I'm talking about in this article.The magical success that I am talk…

True-Self: Is It A Surprise For Someone Who Acts Strong To Feel Weak On The Inside?

True-Self: Is It A Surprise For Someone Who Acts Strong To Feel Weak On The Inside?By Oliver JR Cooper On the one hand, there is going to be how someone behaves and, on the other; there is going to be how someone feels on the inside. At times, what is taking place within them will be expressed through how they behave.An Authentic Human BeingIn this case, one is generally not going to put on an act around others. Ultimately, one is going to be in touch with their true-self, with this being made up by their needs, feelings and preferences.So, when they are around others, there will be no need for them to spend a lot of time thinking about what or what isn't an acceptable way to behave. They can pay attention to what is going on within them - along with being aware of what is going on around them - and one can then decide how they will behave.The Present MomentThrough being in touch with their inner world and having the ability to express who they are, it is going to allow them to sa…

Relationships: What Is The Difference Between A Man Who Hates Women And A Man Who Hates Men?

Relationships: What Is The Difference Between A Man Who Hates Women And A Man Who Hates Men?By Oliver JR Cooper What might not surprise someone is that some men hate women, yet what might surprise them is that there are some men who hate men. It might be hard for them to accept this, especially as they are men themselves. A Different ResponseThen again, this might be something that they are only too aware of, meaning that it is not going to be hard for them to accept this. If man does hate women, he is likely to receive a lot negative feedback from others.Yet, if a man hates men, he is likely to receive a fair amount of positive feedback from people. The reason for this is that it is not uncommon for men to be portrayed in a negative manner, making it acceptable to put them down.The Oppressed GenderWomen, on the other hand, are often seen as being victims, and this is why they deserve to receive special treatment. But even though they are often portrayed as victims, they are also seen…

Fields of Barley

Fields of BarleyBy Dale PhillipBarley, which is a member of the grass family, was one of the first cultivated grains, primarily in Eurasia and Israel, dating back 10,000 years. It lends itself to temperate climates and numerous soils, is hearty and versatile. There are literally hundreds of varieties flourishing worldwide. The first records and archeological digs have unearthed wild barley growing along the Sea of Galilee, as well as along the Nile River in Egypt. But not confined to just several regions, it was also found in early U.K countries, particularly Scotland. Besides comprising a major staple food for much of the populace, it was also used to make early ale and beer, providing malt as well as fermented grain, which was traditionally drunk at meals, including breakfast. After it was surpassed by wheat cultivation, it remained a practical and available grain for peasants, made mostly into porridge, bread and soup. Domesticated livestock were fed a diet of barley when grazing l…

Focus So You Save Time and Money

Focus So You Save Time and MoneyBy Linda Hancock I remember a few years ago when a client told me that his garage was a huge mess. When he needed a screwdriver it was easier to just go to the store and buy a new one! His dream was to travel more but he didn't feel that he had the time or money to do so.I challenged this man to set up a plastic tote with a label that said "Travel". The goal was to get the garage organized with things that he really needed. Every time he came across a duplicate tool or item while cleaning up, he was to throw it into the tote. The task became "fun" for him and the job didn't take nearly as long as he had expected.The tote filled quickly. Some of the items he found were still in packages and could be returned to the store. Others were sold privately and used to finance trips. The client stated that he gained so many benefits from this exercise. He was more organized, had extra funds and most importantly felt like he was in cont…

I Learnt The Importance Of Self-Discipline

I Learnt The Importance Of Self-DisciplineBy Oliver JR Cooper I grew up in a guest house, and this meant that I had to help my family by doing different jobs. However, it wasn't uncommon for me to stop doing a job and then to go to my room or somewhere else.This was partly due to me not being given much time to do what I wanted and partly due to me having a short attention span. As a result of this, my father or mother would usually come and tell me off.Kept In LineIt would then only be a matter of time before I would be back to finish what I had started. A lot of the time I was working outside, and this was something that was far more appealing than working inside.One of the things my father used to say was that if I didn't know how to do something, I should ask him. And if I did this, he wouldn't make out that I was stupid or unless; he would take his time to show me how to do something in a kind and gentle manner.GuidanceAlong with this side, there was another side that…

Passion Over a Lifetime

Passion Over a LifetimeBy Linda Hancock When I heard that Ian Tyson was coming to the city, I thought it would be fun to buy an extra ticket so my daughter could attend the concert with me. Her first word after I issued the invitation was "Who?" I explained that when I grew up we would look forward to the "Ian and Sylvia" show. That didn't shed much light on the situation but Kristal stated that I should go ahead and buy the tickets and she would turn to Google in preparation for the event.Sometimes I kind of forgot my own age and the fact that not everyone has had the same experiences - especially my children. Ian Tyson debuted in a rock and roll band way back in 1956. He is now 84 years old and still singing!Attending the concert and thinking about Ian's life has helped me to recognize several things:
1. We need to take advantage of opportunities - Many people have dreams that are never fulfilled as well as times when life isn't going the way that the…
