        Hippocrates, 400 BC, the father of modern medicine was said to have stated “Let food be your medicine and medicine be your food”. 2000 years later mainstream medicine is attempting to understand the validity in this vital wisdom. Less than a couple of decades ago it was unthinkable to taut it might actually be wise to eat something to change a condition or prevent one

        •  We are coming to understand health not as the absence of disease, but rather as the process by which individuals maintain their sense of coherence (i.e. sense that life is comprehensible, manageable, and meaningful) and ability to function in the face of changes in themselves and their relationships with their environment.[]Aaron Antonovsky, Unraveling The Mystery of Health: How People Manage Stress and Stay Well

        Ways to change our thoughts and beliefs
        Because the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy responds to the dominant thoughts in our minds we need to make sure the dominant thoughts in our minds are of those things we wish to manifest. How do we do this? Below is a small list of things you can do to bombard your mind with new thoughts and make them the dominant thoughts in your head, thus putting the law of perpetual transmutation of energy to work for you.

          •  repeating positive affirmations.
          •  Using visualization techniques.
          •  Creating a vision board.
          •  Reading inspirational quotes.
          •  Read positive books.
          •  Listen to positive music.
          •  Act as if you already have that which you desire.
          •  Be grateful for the good things in your life.
          •  Remember the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy is not biased.
          •  It responds to your thoughts and it does not care what those thoughts are.
          •  It is up to you to make sure your thoughts are producing the results you desire. this excerpt from www.positivethinking-toolbox.com

articleEating Consciously Mindful Eating: How To Nourish Your Mind And Body, Without Feeling Deprived

    • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 


A good metaphor to help you understand your own personal value comes from aviation If you have ever flown on a commercial airliner, you have heard the safety talks at the beginning of the flight. One talk concerns the oxygen masks, which will drop down from the overhead compartment in the event of a sudden decompression at altitude. In that talk, you are warned to put on your own mask before trying to assist someone else.

Do you know why? Well, at high altitudes there is very little oxygen in the air, and the brain can survive for only a few seconds without supplemental oxygen. So, in the time it takes to help someone else who is confused and struggling, you could both pass out and die. But if you put on your own mask immediately, you will have the oxygen you need to survive and think clearly, so you can be of real help to others.

The point here is that unless you take care of yourself first, you cannot be of any help to others. ~written by Raymond Lloyd

In response to Rejuvenated-Reinvented-Free Spirit’s post:

Wow Laurie this post is jut too excellent!!! The Easy Mindfulness Exercise is just what I needed!! Because I like to help people the latest one is a man who is having a nervovuse breakdown he is rich and thinks he’s not. His mom,dad,and sister died within 2 years and he is traumatized,alone and suffering a lot.

It hurts me greatly but it is starting to affect my health so I must take care of myself and let him go. It feels as though I am abandoning him yet it was clear today that he treats his rich friends with great respect and me differently I cannot accept that. The sad part is that his friends except one do not want to bother with him. So Laurie this exercise was needed very much for me. I believe we have telepathy because you always seem to come up with things when I badly needd them!!!!

Peace and Love,

I-love-how-healthy-I-am-positive-affirmation.jpg

Even when I am extremely busy, I still find the time to get enough sleep. I can always find the time because rest is a priority in my life. I am focused on caring for my body.

I am in wonderment at the science of nutrition. Taking better care of myself has led to constant discovery and amazement of how well my body can work.

Clean, pure water is a precious gift, and I drink it abundantly and gratefully.

Nutrition is a keystone for everything I do, so I make it an important part of my life and set aside time to eat well.

I expect a lot from my body every day, so I affirm its right to expect healthy fuel from me.

When I eat natural, fresh foods rather than processed ones, I feel more connected to the earth and the hands that grew it, and I am grateful.

Pure spiritual and physical nourishment is what enables me to give to others, and so I make it a priority.

I choose to wonderfully take care of mind, body, spirit, and creativity.

♫Frampton I love enjoying this surrender. It is always beyond my wildest imagination of completion



    • ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

  • PROGRESSIVE

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  •  1. Do your research. Before you begin any new habit or goal, give yourself several days to know exactly what’s involved in making this change happen. How much time will it take? How will you insert it into your day? Who else will it impact and how will you deal with them? What special equipment or information will you need? What preparation is necessary? What must you give up to make this happen? How will it impact your life once you’ve accomplished it?
  •  2. Make an honest decision. Armed with the knowledge from your research, make an informed and honest choice. Are you willing to do the work involved in making this thing happen? Will the outcome be worth the effort? It’s hard to know for sure until you start taking action, but you should have some idea of what to expect before you charge ahead.
  •  3. Reduce overwhelm. If the goal or habit seems daunting, it will quash your desire to work hard for it. Break it down into small, simple, and brief actions or tasks. Make it so easy to do that it doesn’t feel like a chore. With a new habit, start with five minutes a day, every day — slowly increasing your time over several weeks.
  •  4. Make a public promise. Tell people what you are doing. Announce it to friends, family, on Facebook and Twitter. When you go public with your intentions, it immediately strengthens your resolve. A public commitment shifts your own thinking about your seriousness. No one wants to be embarrassed in front of others.
  •  5. Set up regular accountability. Create a system of accountability so that you can report your actions, successes and failures, every day. This may be a friend or it could be on Facebook or in a forum of some kind. Don’t just announce it once and then disappear. Let the world know about your progress.

[Selfcare-Commentary for #4 and #5-there are different views on going public with intentions. Weigh it out for yourself…weigh your motives and your needs.

    • If it is accountability and support you are looking for, by all means tell others that pump you up…
    • Though I see the other side too…great to rely on your on yourself for accountability…get yourself psyched….tell no one-belief. It has been said …involving others sometimes “takes the air of your balloon”.
    • Personally, I believe it depends on the goal, the person, the supportive individuals you share with…the motive and the need…There have been times being mysterious with my plans served me very well…Keeping tabs on my progression…got me in the flow(: And other times…sharing in a supportive setting/a mastermind setting served me also. That’s my view. Would love to hear yours] (:

 

  •  6. Expect difficulties. There will be life situations that might try to get in the way of your efforts. And it is so easy to allow them to undermine your work. Think in advance of possible problems that might arise and decide how you will deal with these situations. Decide in advance what you will allow to interrupt your work and stick to the plan.
  •  7. Use positive self-talk. When you want to quit, your mind starts reaching for excuses and reasons to give you an exit ramp from the work you are doing. Be aware of your mind’s efforts to sabotage you, and intentionally begin saying supportive and positive things to yourself the minute you feel mental resistance.
  •  8. Visualize the outcome. Visualization has an incredibly powerful effect on the brain. It can actually rewire neural pathways in your brain to support the physical efforts you are making. Take a few minutes prior to taking action on your habit or goal to visualize yourself accomplishing it.
  •  9. Move past failure. It takes practice to strengthen resolve and follow through on just about any endeavor. And if you tackle something “hard”, like diet or exercise, chances are good you will fail a few times before you are successful. Failure doesn’t mean it can’t be done. It might mean you started too big or didn’t plan ahead. Learn from the failure and start again, correcting what you think caused you to give up. Be kind to yourself and know that building resolve is a work in progress.
  •  10. Attempt one at a time. You may have many goals and many things you want to accomplish, but until you strengthen your resolve with one effort, don’t attempt to tackle several at a time. Begin the process of strengthening your resolve with something easy. When you accomplish that, move on to another, slightly harder effort. Build up to difficult goals or tasks so that you know what to expect and how to cope with interferences or problems.
  •  11. Practice resolve in small ways daily. Without judging your success or failure, attempt to resist small temptations during your day (ie: snacking, surfing the internet too long, gossiping). Prove to yourself that you are capable of small acts of self-discipline. These little successes will support your larger efforts at strengthening resolve.
  •  12. Accept full responsibility for your actions. Most of what happens to us in life is a result of our own choices. Yes, there are some things that are out of our control, but even then, we can choose how to react to them. We are not victims. We have an endless array of choices that can change the quality of our lives. There is tremendous power in that.

Gluten Free Ideas from www.naturalfactors.com/blog/2013

1. Amaranth

This ancient Aztec staple packs a high nutritional punch. Amaranth contains 65% carbohydrates and 14% protein, including the essential amino acid lysine. Its high calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium content helps fill nutritional gaps, and it supplies a good dose of vitamin C to increase white blood cell production. Amaranth is also a great source of cholesterol-lowering plant sterols.

2. Buckwheat

This versatile pseudo grain has been cultivated as an important source of nutrition in Eastern Europe for over 4,000 years. Buckwheat contains more zinc, copper, and manganese than most grains, and has been shown to provide an easily absorbable form of potassium. Buckwheat is a superb source of soluble fiber that helps balance blood glucose levels and supplies a good dose of the antioxidant rutin.

3. Millet

If you have ever eaten the traditional Indian flatbread roti, you have eaten millet. Different species of this grain are grown throughout the world. The four most common are pearl, foxtail, proso, and finger millet. All varieties are gluten-free, have high antioxidant activities, and serve a rich source of phosphorus and magnesium. Millet contains 11% protein on its own and can be paired with legumes for a complete source of protein.

4. Teff

Teff is a traditional staple of the Ethiopian diet that delivers a high dose of complex carbohydrates and vitamin C. Teff is the king of calcium; it provides 123 mg of calcium per cup when cooked and has a high resistant starch content that supports blood glucose and weight management. Despite being the tiniest gluten-free pseudo grain, teff makes a powerful nutritional impact.

5. Wild Rice

This native North American pseudo grain provides a broad-spectrum of vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, zinc, niacin, and folate. Wild rice is also an important source of fiber and antioxidants. It is gluten-free and adds a fantastic texture and nutty flavour to any pilaf, soup, or salad.

6. Quinoa

This sacred Inca crop has earned modern fame for its amazing nutritional value and gluten-free protein content. Quinoa is a complete source of protein because it contains a balanced profile of all essential amino acids. It also has a high protein to carbohydrate ratio and is a rich source of potassium, zinc, and antioxidant polyphenols. Quinoa has such high nutritional importance that The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has designated 2013 the International Year of the Quinoa.

Variety is key

Despite the challenges of living with celiac disease, there are a wide variety of celiac-friendly options that provide greater nutritional benefits than most varieties of wheat. Whether you are celiac, have non-celiac gluten sensitivities, or just want more variety in your diet, gluten-free grains and pseudo grains are a terrific whole-food approach to fuelling your nutritional needs.

  • ** My hope is that the thread is reader-friendly enough, where you will define health for yourself. This is a thread I’ve been attempting to give time to in between …life.(: Hopefully you can take away something that assists you with your unique journey, and continue to create routines in your life that work well. Of course it is also my goal to inspire myself right along with you…to keep health as a top priority…an urgent and important quadrant ….progressive and maintained. -> Taking care of yourself is never about what the other guy is doing. It is about focusing on & fine-tuning yourself

I wanted to throw this out there for you guys. Do any of you ever eat Jello? Apparently gelatin is very good for you. You can get gelatin, or even jello into your diet easily. The “purists” aren’t fans of the Jello brand stuff, but, the gelatin in that stuff, I believe, is the same stuff that is in the pure gelatin. Anyway, why am I adding this post? Here is why: I’ve had some joint pain in a couple of my fingers for well over a year now, maybe over two years, I’ve had it a long enough time that I had just accepted that it was something I was going to have to live with – at least until I got more serious about my health. I always figured it would get better once I started eating healther. Well, I don’t normally eat Jello. The other day, though, I was thinking about some snacks I could keep on hand that would make it easier to avoid all that processed, super-convenient crap that I usually grab when I want something to eat. I bought a bunch of Jello. Probably 10 or 12 boxes of the stuff. (I got the sugar free kind). I finally got around to making a batch. It is really easy to make. Today, this morning, in fact, I got the batch I made last night out of the fridge and ate the whole thing. Know what I just happened to notice this afternoon? My fingers aren’t stiff. Could it possibly work that fast? I don’t know if the jello is the reason for the lack of stiffness, but, I don’t know what else to attribute it to. I just went and googled a couple of terms: gelatin and arthritis, and gelatin and joints – and guess what? Lots of folks say it is really good for you for lots of reasons. Not gonna’ list them all, you can go look it up for yourself, but, do. Go look it up. You might want to add jello to your diet. Or at least gelatin.
