It's Getting To Be That 'Christmas' Time of Year...

This is soooo cool!

It's getting to be that time of year again, where the days are getting shorter, school's back in, and Halloween is fast approaching. It's just a fast downhill slide to Christmas from here! There's always some smart ass in every crowd that knows exactly how many shopping days are left. Usually I'm the first one to tell someone to be quiet when they mention the Holidays, because I am one of those last minute shoppers in the stores till the last possible minute on Christmas Eve.

If you want to make life easier on yourself this year and want to give a gift that will be remembered forever, you've gotta take a look at this! It's called the "Ribbon Program". The person you give to receives a 'gift album', sort of like a catalogue. They go thru and pick out what they want (there's no prices, because you've already paid for it), and use the number on the gift card to go online and order. There are 21 different gift albums in a wide price range (if you buy 4 of the Variety Albums @ $25 you get 1 Album FREE!)

These are perfect for the person on your list that has everything, or someone who is just hard to shop for. It was great when my kids were teens. (They're so fussy and this gave them lots of choices so I couldn't get the 'wrong thing') I've gotten the "Wedding" one for my getting married friends, the "Variety" one to have on hand in case I need a gift at the last minute, and the "Baby" one I gave to my Neice and Nephew for their first child. Everyone that I have ever given one of these to just loves the gift and the experience.

Unresolved Issues

I read somewhere quite awhile ago that cancer was caused by deeply held resentments and hates. People who carried grudges for years, hated someone for years, etc. As I think about different people I know who have or have died from cancer, the ones I know well enough, each of them has something in their past they have never been able to let go of. This morning in my inbox was a health news letter that again brought this issue to light for me.

German New Medicine (GNM), developed by Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer, M.D., operates under the premise that every disease, including cancer, originates from an unexpected shock experience.The discovery came after Dr. Hamer, the former head internist in the oncology clinic at the University of Munich, Germany, lost his son in an unexpected tragedy, then developed testicular cancer. The diagnosis led him to study the connection between stressful events and disease by investigating the histories of his cancer patients.He found that, like himself, every one of his patients had gone through a very stressful episode prior to developing cancer, and, upon investigating other diseases found that every disease is controlled from its own specific area in the brain and linked to a very particular, identifiable, “conflict shock.”GNM is based of five biological laws that apply scientifically to each and every case of disease. They include:
#1: Every disease is caused by a conflict shock that catches an individual completely off guard.
#2: Provided there is a resolution of the conflict, every disease proceeds in two phases, a conflict-active phase and a healing phase.
#3: Ties the findings of the first two laws into the context of embryology and the evolution of man. It illustrates the biological correlation between the psyche, the brain, and the organ from an evolutionary point of view.
#4: Addresses the role of microbes in the context of evolution and in relation to the three germ layers from which our organs originate. Microbes are indispensable to your survival.
#5: Every so-called disease has to be understood as a “meaningful special biological program of nature” created to solve an unexpected biological conflict.
Further, Dr. Hamer believes that a person cannot die of cancer in and of itself. If someone dies during the conflict-active phase of disease, he says, it’s because of energy loss, weight loss, sleep deprivation, and emotional and mental exhaustion. The stress of receiving a cancer diagnosis, or being given a negative prognosis, is often enough to deprive a person of their life-force. Conventional cancer treatments only accelerate the downward spiral.If a patient has not undergone any conventional treatments such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy, GNM has a success rate of 95 percent to 98 percent.While trying to publicize his findings, Dr. Hamer has been persecuted and harassed by German and French authorities. He is now living in exile in Spain where he is continuing his fight for official recognition of GNM.

I Don't Want To Grow Bent...

Boy, the older I get the faster the time goes. I can't believe it has been almost a month since I have updated this blog! I promise to add fresher content more often in the future, (I promise myself).

I have noticed over the last few years as I care for my aging mother, that she has started to slump. She walks a little bent over all of the time. What bothers me about this is that my whole life she was always telling me to "Stand up straight. Don't slouch", which of course I did slouch because I was so much bigger than the other kids. When you're first going thru puberty, the last thing you want to do is stick your boobs out there so everybody can make fun of the changes that you're already feeling self concious about. She always had very good posture, yet now I am seeing her hunched over and have to bite my tongue to keep from telling her to "Stand up straight".

When I saw this in my inbox this morning from Bottom Line I found it very interesting. First, I don't want to walk hunched over and second, that's what they said my mother's problem was was osteoperosis. According to this it very well could be because she just sits on her a** all day watching TV. (Now I try to stand up as straight as possible because I want to stick my boobs out. It beats them dragging on the floor!) LOL.

Answers to Your Questions from Bottom Line Experts
How can I prevent getting a humped back?

A: This condition usually can be reversed or prevented by stretching the groin ligaments, which "pull" the pelvis forward, realigning the pelvis and the spine toward normal curvature.
Stretch the backs of your legs by sitting "Indian-style" for at least 30 minutes a day -- ordinary stretching exercises are not adequate.
Walking also stretches these ligaments -- walk for 12 minutes every other day, then work up to an hour a day or more.
To stretch more, get up from a sitting position. Then stand with your hip jutting to the left, lean to the right with your left arm extended over your head, then reverse. Do this several times a day.
Surprisingly, most humped backs are not caused by osteoporosis. The main culprit often is sedentary behavior. Over many years, sitting causes ligaments in the groin to shorten and atrophy. As this happens, the normal forward lumbar curve increases, compressing the lumbar disks and resulting in a humped back.
