Healthy Skin requires a healthy body

Neglect may result in your skin looking like a reptiles

How to keep your good looks and prevent sagging, lines and wrinkles.

Our skin from birth is exposed to sun, dirt and grime, and then washed with various combinations of chemicals. It is also susceptible to the process of ageing and after many years can resemble that of a reptile. But there is hope for lovely soft, clear skin, but first lets think about the skin, it’s functions and requirements:

Your Skin is a barrier to keep your insides in, and to keep the outside world out.

Digestive Science

Keeping your gut happy

Cafe meal

We live in a very high-pressure world and we need to perform at our best in order to succeed. However this pressure means that we often take short-cuts without diet and lifestyle. In a perfect world, we could sit for an hour or more and enjoy a quality meal with friends and even a glass of wine.

However so many people live on fast food and if that’s you, then your digestive tract is under a lot of pressure. Fast food tends to be highly processed, full of unpleasant chemicals and because it is fast, we eat in a hurry and continue our activities before digestion has taken place.

A consequence of this

Facts about ageing

Youthfulness is to be enjoyed when we’re young

We all want to retain our youthful exuberance and appearance, yet we cannot completely put off the inevitable, that over time our bodies will eventually succumb to age.

We all age at a different rate, some reach their later years and still look as if they are half their age, while others look a lot older than their actual years. The cause is in genetics, diet and lifestyle..

Genetics plays a role in our general features and characteristics, but it has less of an effect than diet and lifestyle.

Those who have a lifestyle that does not support the body will age more rapidly. A good lifestyle here

An Adventure Going Braless

Bucking a social trend

I heard about the organisation ‘free the nipple‘ and thought little about it until I came home from work until one day then realised how relieved I was to take my bra off and made the connection. I stood topless looking at myself in the mirror, mostly at the strap line’s that had cut into my shoulders and went from under my boobs right around my back.

Those cut lines or indentations felt so uncomfortable I massaged as far around as I could reach which softened them a little then I continued

Causes of Hair Loss

Protecting our appearance

Anthropologists say we began to loose our body hair about two million years ago and this gave us a competitive advantage over other animals. But nature left our head hair as protection from the hot sun, basically so it wouldn’t fry our brains.

Today, a full head of hair is desirable, yet for many of us it begins to thin at a very young age and both men and women experience hair loss for similar reasons which are.

Disease or illness

Losing hair could be a sign of being unhealthy. Illnesses such as systemic lupus erythematosis and syphilis, or thyroid disorder show hair loss as a symptom. Chronic kidney dysfunction may also cause lots of hair to

PGAD

Persistent genital arousal disorder

Women who have regular spontaneous orgasms, also called Restless Genital Syndrome (RGS).

PGAD is a very rare condition thought to affect about 1 in 1,000,000 women. This condition can begin before puberty and continue throughout life. Or it can start any time, like sometimes just before menopause. The medical establishment can find no cause or treatment, and any woman suffering from this condition may be subject to some experimentation at the hands of the medical establishment.

This condition makes many woman’s lives a misery and the fact that they are having a multiple of orgasms every day precludes them from enjoying normal sexual activity.

Not only are there no known causes

Water Holds Memory

Ancient knowledge confirmed by modern science

Copper, the ideal water storage. Note it must be well cleaned regularly

Most of us tend to think as water as a convenience and something to nourish our bodies. In fact we can’t live more than about three days without water which makes it a necessity for life.

Within ancient yogic and Hindu understanding, water was highly respected and even venerated because there was the knowledge that our bodies were approximately 70% water. So while water had all its practical applications, the perception of water was that as an entity it has memory.

Memory of water is subtle and yet powerful, if you mistreat the water it will not nurture and support life.

The Woman's Moon

Harmonising the menstrual cycle

The name menstruation comes from the Latin word menses which means “menstrual flow”, it is also the plural of mensis meaning month and is related to the Greek word “mene” meaning moon. This indicates a historical relationship between the lunar and menstrual cycles.

The moon is a symbol for primal female energy as associated with the goddesses of pagan times like Diana the queen of witches, huntress and protector of the wild and free who was worshipped in ancient Rome. Like the Indian Goddess Kali, she is still respected and admired today as a symbol of woman’s prowess and capacity to love and protect. (Details below)

The cycle of the moon takes 29.5 days, close to

The Salt of Life

So why the fuss?

It was not only in Rome that salt was so prized, salt has always been one of the worlds major commodities and it remains so today. All over the world salt is harvested and distributed because without salt would not live.

Even animals need salt and in the wild naturalists have observed how elephants go to extraordinary lengths to acquire salt, and most farmers wanting to raise healthy stock provide salt licks for them. So what is it about salt?

Most of us have grown up in an environment where salt has been added to almost all food. It enhances flavour and contributes toward our nutritional acquirements. However most commercial salt is almost always pure sodium

Sex Before Kissing

A new and dangerous social paradigm

Nice kiss by couplenotes/Tumblr

While sex without kissing for the most part throughout human history has been the prerogative of the soldier/rapist who were typically all men and sex workers who are typically women, sex without kissing was once very rare. A kiss is coming together in intimacy in many forms, it’s a declaration of acceptance, trust and affection, and often times used to convey a progression towards deeper intimacy.

Of course there are times when lovers come together with such intense desire that they forgo kissing, but the increasing openness of society in terms of knowledge that is often distorted, and the ease of the Internet that is saturated with Continue reading Sex Before Kissing
