Meditation and Hypnosis

All mind relaxation techniques, despite the different names, are essentially the same. Meditation though, is supposedly limited to self/spiritual development.

Hypnosis can cure or aid in the cure of a great many ailments. Hypnosis can solve a great many personal problems. At the same time you are always awake, conscious and aware of what is happening - it is you who is in control and if you don't like something you can just open your eyes and say you will not do it (which of course will bring you out of the relaxed state). Forget the Hollywood-type hype that depicts people walking around like zombies under the control of some madman who merely has to look into a person's eyes in order to put them into an alleged hypnotic trance. This is pure mythical, dramatic garbage that has absolutely no basis in fact. Let's talk about truth. Exactly what is hypnosis, or more accurately, self-hypnosis (The hypnotist has no power over you at all and cannot make you do anything against your will. All hypnosis is really self-hypnosis. All the hypnotist does is guide you into a relaxed state, which you can easily learn to do yourself, if you wish. The hypnotist is a guide, not a master, and he or she does not have any special power or magic)? Self-hypnosis is a self-induced, altered state of mental consciousness that allows you to give constructive suggestions directly to your subconscious mind. More simply put, you cause your brain frequency to slow down to the range of seven to fourteen cycles per second. In that frequency range, your mind is highly susceptible to suggestions or instructions. By giving constructive suggestions to your subconscious mind, you can change your life for the better in many ways. Here are just a few examples of changes you can make with self-hypnosis : stop smoking, learn faster and more effectively, improve your self-image and self-esteem, improve your sexual performance, improve any skill, overcome pain, get rid of headaches, relax and overcome stress, stop bed-wetting, get rid of any bad habit such as nail biting, stuttering etc. The list goes on almost endlessly. You can even use self-hypnosis to experience past-life regression. Self hypnosis is a tool we can use to straighten out bad programming because it is a method of allowing ourselves to adjust our brain frequency to the subconscious area and then reprogram our mind with the information we want. Simply, we overlay the negative programming with positive programming, thus canceling out the negative programming. It works!

Foods That Decrease Blood Sugar

Diabetes is an ailment that needs good control over the diet and lifestyle of the affected person. People with high blood sugar levels are often left with very few options to choose from, when it comes to food. However, you should know that there are many foods, which help decrease blood sugar also. While some of the foods that help lower blood sugar are rich in fiber, others have nutrients that help keep the level of blood sugar steady. Such food items are recommended by the dieticians and doctors as well. In case you want to know more about the foods that help decrease blood sugar, the list given below will prove useful.

Best Foods To Lower Your Blood Sugar

Avocado is packed with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. It contains vitamin E in a recommended amount, which is needed for the regulation of blood sugar and thus lowering the blood sugar. It contains vitamin E, magnesium, vitamin C, folate, and zinc which are excellent for diabetics. Take a cup of freshly cut avocado every day.

Barley is a whole-grain product, which is high in soluble fiber and contains low glycemic index (GI) with certain types of indigestible carbohydrates. Taking barley in breakfast is a good way to keep your body healthy and to lower your blood sugar.

Broccoli, Spinach, and Green Beans
According to the diabetic experts, having plenty of vegetables, such as broccoli, spinach, and green beans are good for people with high blood sugar. As these vegetables are non-starchy, high in fiber, low in carbs, these are an ideal food for a person suffering from high blood sugar. Incorporate these foods in your diet on a regular basis.

Generally, fruits are high in fructose, which makes them unsuitable for a hypoglycemic diet. However, fruits especially all types of berries are low in sugar, high in antioxidants and packed with nutrients, which makes them ideal for someone suffering from low blood sugar. Include berries such as strawberries, blueberries, acai berries etc in your diet.

Fish (Tuna, Salmon, Halibut, and Herring)
Fishes such as tuna, salmon, herring, halibut contain onega-3 fatty acid improves the body’s response to insulin and helps in regulating blood sugar. These fishes also contain selenium, which helps in lowering the blood sugar. Incorporate these fishes in your diet.

Flax seed and its flax seed oil both have omega 3, an essential fatty acid that helps in regulating blood sugar level. It also contains mucilage, which is good for lowering blood sugar. They are also rich in protein, fiber, and are a good source of magnesium, which is very good for blood sugar control.

Green Tea
Green tea contains antioxidants and has been used to control blood sugar in the body from time immemorial. Studies also show that green tea helps in preventing the development of diabetes and slow the advance once a person has developed it. Green tea also helps in regulating glucose in a person’s body. 
Some other foods that help in lowering blood sugar are:
  • Brown Rice
  • Cabbage
  • Canola Oil
  • Carrots
  • Cinnamon
  • Lean Meat
  • Lentils
  • Low-Fat Dairy Products
  • Nuts
  • Olive Oil
  • Wheat Bran

Learning and Filing Information in Your Sleep

During sleep, your brain can learn a new piece of information and even store it for later, so that it pops up when you need it, found a new study carried out by researchers at theUniversity of York and Harvard Medical School.

The team also discovered that sleep helps people remember new words easier and allows them to enrich their 'mental lexicon' with new vocabulary.

For the experiments, the study volunteers learned new words in the evening and were tested right afterward.
They slept over night at the lab while their brain activity was recorded using an electroencephalogram, and the next morning underwent another test.

The results proved that the subjects could remember more words than they did just after they had learned them, and they could also recognize them faster, which supports the theory that sleep has strengthened the new memories. 

For the control group however, things went a little differently: they were trained in the morning and were re-tested in the evening, without getting any sleep in between, and their results were much weaker.

The researchers examined the brainwaves of sleep volunteers and saw that deep sleep or slow-wave sleep, helped more in strengthening new memories, than REM sleep (light sleep) did.

Another thing that the researchers tested was whether the new words had been integrated with already existing knowledge in the mental lexicon, and doing so, they discovered the importance of sleep spindles in the brain.

Sleep spindles are short but very intense bursts of brain activity which occur during the information transfer between the hippocampus and the neocortex (hippocampus memories are stored away from other memories, and the neocortex memories are connected to existing knowledge).

Participants who had more sleep spindles during the night made better connections between the new words and the others in their mental lexicon.

“We suspected from previous work that sleep had a role to play in the reorganization of new memories, but this is the first time we've really been able to observe it in action, and understand the importance of spindle activity in the process,” said co-author of the paper, Professor Gareth Gaskell, of the University of York's Department of Psychology.

These results are another confirmation of the importance of sleep in learning new things.

The study was funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and was published in the Journal of Neuroscience.

Learning and Memory Enhancer Was Discovered

A team of medical researchers from the University of Bristol have found the explanation for the interaction between brain state and the neural triggers responsible for learning.

This discovery
 could open the way to new methods of strengthening cognitive functions in people suffering from debilitating diseases like Alzheimer’s, but also help improve memory in healthy individuals.

What makes this finding really exciting is the fact that the researchers from Bristol’s School of Physiology and Pharmacology, were able to study, in isolation, the exact neurotransmitter that enhances learning and memory – acetylcholine.
They studied the effects that drugs targeting acetylcholine receptors and SK channels have on the force of the connections between nerve cells in animal brain tissue. 

They found out that administrating drugs that activate acetylcholine receptors or block SK channels, made changing the connection strength much easier, thus establishing a link between the two proteins.

Lead researcher Dr Jack Mellor, from the University of Bristol’s Medical School said that “from a therapeutic point of view, this study suggests that certain drugs that act on specific acetylcholine receptors may be highly attractive as potential treatments for cognitive disorders. 

“Currently, the only effective treatments for patients with Alzheimer’s disease are drugs that boost the effectiveness of naturally released acetylcholine. 

“We have shown that mimicking the effect of acetylcholine at specific receptors facilitates changes in the strength of connections between nerve cells. 

“This could potentially be beneficial for patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or schizophrenia.”

During learning, acetylcholine is released in the brain where it boosts the capacity of acquiring new memories, by facilitating the activity of the NMDA receptors – proteins in charge of the strength of the connections between nerve cells, within the brain.

The researchers have shown that acetylcholine facilitates NMDA receptors by inhibiting other proteins called SK channels, which normally restrict NMDA receptors' activity.

They do so by preventing changes in the strength of nerve cells connections, weakening the brain's ability to encode memories.

Releasing acetylcholine removes the SK barrier, and enhances the brain’s capacity of learning and remembering information. 

Still, Dr Mellor said that “these findings are not going to revolutionize the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of cognitive impairment overnight.

“However, national and international funding bodies have recently made research into aging and dementia a top priority so we expect many more advances in our understanding of the mechanisms underlying learning and memory in both health and disease.”

The researchers were affiliated to the
University of Bristol’s MRC Center for Synaptic Plasticity and the Division of Neuroscience in the School of Physiology & Pharmacology, part of the Bristol Neuroscience network, and their work was supported by the Wellcome Trust, MRC, BBSRC and GSK.

The results are described in the journal Neuron.

Insulin Pill Against Diabetes Undergoes Testing

One of the most cumbersome and inconvenient aspects of diabetes is the fact that patients suffering from advanced forms need to inject insulin into their bloodstream each day. Their own body is unable to produce the hormone, and they cannot survive without it. Delivering insulin has become big business, and many research groups have been looking for a method of making the entire process simpler and more efficient. Now, the Denmark-based Novo Nordisk has been found to engage in phase 1 clinical testings of a new pill, which may deliver insulin without the need for painful shots.
The pharmaceutical corporation has been a leader in the field of diabetes care for most of its 87-year history, delivering numerous products and therapies to sufferers. The new effort, if successful, would additionally consolidate its position, while at the same time providing diabetes patients with the Holy Grail of all cures, the insulin pill. Encapsulating the hormone in an easy-to-swallow dose is not exactly a walk in the park, but the fact that Novo is so advanced in its research can only mean excellent news for the company and patients alike, Technology Review reports. 

In addition to the added comfort associated with receiving insulin in this manner, the pill would also entail other, more important benefits. If ingested, it reaches the stomach directly, from where it can easily go to the liver, mimicking the action of its naturally-produced counterpart. Generally, diabetes sufferers who have daily injections tend to insert the hormone in muscles or fat, which means that the substance is fairly far away from where it needs to go. This is why even patients who take their insulin shots at the correct time of day can develop hypoglycemia at any given point. 

There are several hurdles associated with delivering insulin orally. They include the highly-acidic nature of gastric liquids, the complex nature of the insulin molecules, the rate at which epithelial cells absorb the compound and so on. In order to circumvent most of these problems, the Novo team turned to protein engineering, so as to modify insulin according to needs. “You can't use human insulin [for developing orally-delivered pills]. ]It doesn't work,” explains Novo's chief scientific officer, Mads Krogsgaard Thomsen. The team is currently still tweaking its final product, details of which are currently kept under wraps.

Drink Water On Empty Stomach

It is popular in Japan to day to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value. We publish below a description of use of water for our readers. For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:

Headache, Body ache, Heart system, Arthritis, Fast Heart Beat, Epilepsy, excess fatness, Bronchitis Asthma, TB, Meningitis, Kidney and Urine Diseases, Vomiting, Gastritis, Diarrhea, Piles, Diabetes, Constipation, all eye diseases, womb, Cancer and Menstrual Disorders, (ENT) - Ear, Nose and Throat diseases.


1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth , drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water... Interesting!
2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minutes
3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours
5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.
6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.

The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/reduce Main Diseases:

· High Blood Pressure - 30 days
· Gastric - 10 days
· Diabetes - 30 days
· Constipation - 10 days
· Cancer - 180 days
· TB - 90 days
· Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards - daily.
This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times.

It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life.

Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active.

This makes sense... The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain...

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. 

It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion.

Once this 'sludge' reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer . It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about Heart Attacks :

Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting.

Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack.

Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms.

60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up.

Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep. Let's be careful and be aware. The more we know, the better chance we could survive...

A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this mail sends it to everyone they know, you can be sure that we'll save at least one life.

Researchers "Grow" New Blood Vessels

Synthetic blood vessels that can be made in advance and stored until surgery could help patients undergoing heart surgery, hemodialysis—cleansing of the blood in cases of kidney failure—and other procedures. Laura Niklason, an anesthesiologist and biomedical engineer at Yale University, and her collaborators have grown blood vessels using human cells and tested them in baboons, showing that they provoke no immune rejection and avoid common complications of synthetic vessels, such as clotting, bursting, or contracting over time. Researchers hope these studies will show that the vessels are safe enough to win permission from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to begin clinical trials.

During bypass surgery, doctors looking to circumvent blocked arteries usually harvest vessels from a patient's leg or arm. But people who suffer from vascular disease or who have had previous procedures may have no suitable vessels left. The other options have complications: grafts from donors are often rejected by the recipient's immune system, artificial plastic vessels have high rates of blood clots and other problems, and vessels grown from a patient's own tissue take more than six months to mature. "Artificial grafts suffer from clotting and obstruction because they are not tissue," says Niklason, especially when plastic is used.
Niklason says she has solved this problem by creating vessels that are derived from living tissue but can be used off-the-shelf and are not rejected by the immune system. Using a technique she developed at MIT in the 1990s, researchers seed tubular scaffolds with smooth muscle cells. The cells secrete collagen and other connective tissue molecules around the scaffolds, forming blood vessels. After the scaffolds break down, the vessels are washed with a detergent that strips away the cells, leaving behind the fibrous tubes of collagen.

Because the tubes contain no living cells, they do not trigger an immune response and have a shelf life of more than a year. The group has previously grown vessels using cells from several different animal species, including canine versions for heart bypass surgeries in dogs.

Now, in a report published in Science Translational Medicine, the researchers have grown vessels using human cells for the first time. They used the vessels to link an artery and a vein in baboons, creating a structure called a fistula to mimic the setup required by hemodialysis patients, who have a needle injected into such a link two or three times a week to get their blood filtered. Also, while previous versions of the vessels required a wait of several weeks while the insides of the vessels were "personalized" with some of the patient's own cells, a process that makes them less likely to clog, these hemodialysis vessels did not need that treatment.
"That means they could potentially be immediately available to the patient," says Shannon Dahl, a biomedical engineer who cofounded a biotechnology company called Humacyte with Niklason and another colleague to help bring the technology to market. Humacyte initially plans to test its technology in hemodialysis patients, though Dahl declined to give a timeline for clinical trials.

Researchers ultimately hope to test the vessels for heart surgeries, but they first want to show that the technology is safe and effective. "I would love to get to coronary bypass at some point, but we have to prove that this is a good, safe therapy in other anatomical locations first," says Niklason. A hemodialysis graft is much more easily replaced than a bypass graft if there are infections or other problems.
The researchers' use of baboons also provides important additional support before they move into human trials, says David Putnam, a chemical engineer at Cornell University who studies biomaterials. The reason is that the dynamics of blood flow in baboons are a good model for what happens in humans, he says. "They are going about this very well, very carefully. They're building a house with very strong bricks," he says. "And the next step is humans."
