The Human Being

The human being is made up of many different things. We can identify the parts as limbs, as systems, or as organs. We can further break it down to various organ tissues, cells, cellular structures and chemicals. We are a mass of chemicals - this has already been identified.  But we are not just chemicals.

We can simplify the breakdown of the human being into 3 main parts– the body, mind and soul.

  • The body is that mass of chemicals making up structure, and to some degree function.
  • The mind is that part of us that is the mental and emotional aspect. What we feel and think.
  • The soul is that part of us, which is the little part of the Whole universal energy.

Salt – Is it good or bad for your Health?

Print PDF

Salt has been said to raise your blood pressure, lead to water retention and many other serious health concerns including heart disease, diabetes and cancer.  Despite how pervasive this premise is, scientific research reveals that a reduced-sodium diet could lead to health issues and higher mortality rates.

So why did salt get such a bad reputation?

Salt in its unrefined state is still rich in the important trace minerals and free of additives.  When people commonly refer to “salt” they are really talking about “table salt” or “iodized salt”, which are white refined salts that are devoid of all other minerals and consist of only Sodium Chloride, without the presence of the other minerals included in natural salt, table salt can cause mineral imbalances within the body which lead to – calcium imbalance, calcifications, hardening of the arteries, hemorrhagic stroke, high blood pressure, kidney stones, osteoporosis, cataract, glaucoma, fatigue, psychological problems and many more.

Print PDF

I want to tell people about this wonderfully natural form of healing called Bach Flower remedies, it is one of the greatest and possibly simplest form of remedies available to increase the quality of our lives. It is completely safe and can be used harmoniously along side any form of medical or preferably natural form of treatment without any negative side effects. It is also so very cost effective that everybody should use (or at least try) them.

What is it?
Bach Flower Remedies are a well-known type of flower essence therapy. The Bach Flowers are a set of 38 healing remedies.  They come in liquid form and are taken orally a few drops at a time. They are completely naturally derived and are made directly from specially selected flowers, picked at a time to give them the greatest healing power.

It’s Evolution
In the early 1930’s Dr. Edward Bach, a successful and prominent U.K physician became aware that in his patients, mental and emotional factors predisposed them to physical ailments. In his desire to truly heal his patients in a more profound & efficacious way than that what conventional medicine could do at the time, he developed his world-renowned thirty-eight Bach Flower remedies that work to positively influence people on the subtle levels at which illnesses arise.

Hay fever

Hay fever refers to the abnormal reaction that occurs in some of us, of excessive sneezing which may be accompanied by runny nose and watery inflamed eyes, occurring in response to triggers such as dust, pollen, etc.  These triggers are not the cause that is why most people do not suffer from these abnormal reactions. Normal sneezing is the body’s natural response to reject foreign matter entering the airways.

Cause
The abnormal reactions occur because of hypersensitivity of the mucous membranes (wet outer layer of skin) that line the airways in the nostrils. Why are they hypersensitive? Mostly, they are hypersensitive because the cells that make up the mucous are sick, and like us when we are sick, are irritable and hypersensitive and want to be left alone.

Two things responsible for the ill health of these cells are - that individuals may lack certain nutrients that support the health of these cells, and the probably more important reason is, that we don’t wash out our noses. The modern shower does not help. We clean our outer bodies and fail to remove all the trapped stuff in our noses. Dust and toxins remain there for days until we get the urge to have a pick at it. It is this stuff that makes the cells of the mucous membranes sick.
