NEWS FLASH: 6 out of 10 Americans are overweight and over acidic!

Dr. Robert Young author of “The pH Miracle” has shown that fat is actually an over-acidification problem. What does that mean? The body creates fat cells to carry acids away from your vital organs, so these acids literally don't choke your organs to death. Fat is saving your life! Fat is actually a response from the body to an alarming over-acidic condition.

It's very easy to get lost in memories.  The triumphs and regrets of the past often stay with us far longer than they're useful.  Just the same, we can become lost in the future.  Whether it's worry and fear, goals and expectations - the energy we use on what we cannot guarantee and what we can generally not anticipate is bigger and potentially more destructive than we think.

This is not to say that the wisdom of the past cannot help and guide us.  Nor is it to say that we should live our lives with no heed to tomorrow.  What is key to remember is that we are at our best and life is lived at its richest in the present moment.  Really, it's all we have.  The past cannot be changed, but it can be distorted and it can cripple us.  The future is not ...

Most of us know about the importance of iron and calcium for our bodies, but what about magnesium? It is the second most abundant element in human cells and the fourth most important positively charged ion in the body. It helps the body regulate over 325 enzymes and plays an important role in organizing many bodily functions, like muscle control, electrical impulses, energy production and the elimination of harmful toxins.

Anxiety and Panic: Gaining Control Over How You're Feeling

by Peter S. for Lose Stress Now on May 15, 2011 0 Comments

via FamilyDoctor.org

What is anxiety?

Anxiety is a word that describes feelings of worry, nervousness, fear, apprehension, concern or restlessness. Normal feelings of anxiety often serve as an "alarm system," alerting you to danger. For example, imagine coming home and finding a burglar in your living room. Your heart beats fast. Your palms get sweaty. Your mind races. In this situation, anxiety can provide an extra spark to help you get out of danger. In more normal but busy situations, anxiety can give you the energy to get things done.

But sometimes anxiety can be out of control, giving you a sense of dread and fear for no apparent reason. This kind of anxiety can disrupt your life.

Living Off the Tops of Our Heads and 10 Lies We Tell to Ourselves

by Peter Strayer for Lose Stress Now

LOSE STRESS NOW - April 26, 2011:  If we could take a look at a daily transcript of all our thoughts I'm sure we'd be amazed.  The patterns, tones and flat-out nature of what goes through our minds if often far beyond our conscious management.  

Most people are physically wide awake but mentally they're unconsciously flowing through each day with no particular control or mindfulness of thoughts or emotional patterns.  This passivity lets their feelings drive their thinking as they go along.  

This is not necessarily anything bad, but depending on how you would assess your quality of life, you may or may not be interested in getting a better sense of how your mind works - gaining an awareness of your well-worn mental highways and your roads less traveled.  

Meditation is a wonderful way to quiet the internal dialog, gain enough ...
