Common Diseases

What are diseases?

A disease or dis-ease is anything that makes us feel unwell or suffer in any way. In that sense, ignorance as a cause of suffering is a disease.

Despite the improvements in hygiene and living standards, the best available drugs and medications, dis-ease continues to manifest in many different ways.

As we progress as a society and as a civilisation dis-ease at this time in our history is as rampant as ever and new diseases continually appear

Here we present a little of what we know about various conditions and what may influence a positive outcome.

A disease is:

Anything that is against humanity Anything that causes pain and suffering Anything

Is Saving Ourselves Possible?

Or avoiding another mass extinction event

The Doomsday Clock was created in 1947 to represent how close we are to a global catastrophe. It’s maintained by the members of The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Science and Security Board.

The group of scientists, including 16 Nobel Laureates, announced this morning that we have moved dangerously close to all-out disaster. The Clock’s recent advance to two and a half minutes means that scientists and experts agree that we are teetering on the brink of societal collapse or an apocalyptic scale nuclear war, which symbolically occurs at midnight on their scale.

In the years since the Clock was created we have only been this close to midnight once, in 1953 when the

Trump Perspective

And the mass hysteria

Man at workYoutube image

Pope Francis was recently reported a saying “a person who thinks only about building walls were ever they may be, and not a building bridges, is not a Christian.” Yet the Vatican city is surrounded by an almost impenetrable wall.

The idea of a wall or a more impenetrable fence than what exists between the USA and Mexico has received a huge outcry of protest yet no one has protested the wall between Mexico and Guatamala or the new wall turkey is building between itself and Syria.

The new US president has placed a temporary ban on refugees and travellers from a handful of countries identified as being high risk by

Another Hotel Scam

Criminals know no bounds

This is how it works to steal your credit card details:

You arrive at your hotel and check in at the front desk. Typically when checking in, you give the front desk your credit card (for any charges to your room) and they return the card to you.

You go to your room and settle in. All is good. The hotel receives a call and the caller asks for (as an example) room 620 – which happens to be your room.

The phone rings in your room. You answer and the person on the other end says the following: ‘This is the front desk. When checking in, we came across a problem with your charge card

The World That’s Coming

The modern spread of Islam

The future of all European women under Islam

For most people in this world, one of the most common dreams is for peace, happiness and prosperity. This applies to atheists, pagans and peoples of all religions and beliefs. Unfortunately a large percentage of our global population believes that peace, happiness and prosperity will only occur when everyone else conforms to their beliefs.

Beliefs regarding democracy and aspects of socialism have in fact created a reasonably stable order and conditions for people to live out their dreams and fantasies, but unfortunately many of these dreams and fantasies have come at other people’s expense.

For the Christians to be happy, everyone in the world must

Osho on Sex Ed for Kids

Tell it the way it is

Periodically in the media this week, discussions about sex education for children re-emerge. Those who consider themselves enlightened want to tell kids the facts of life as they really are while the moral opposition wants kids to remain forever in ignorance until that time comes when they fumble in the dark and are left suffering various forms of anxiety.

In terms of statistics, these prove that children who are well educated about sex are more likely to put off sex until they are older and practice safe sex, they are also much less likely to get pregnant so it seems really strange that the moralists want to raise their kids in ignorance and expose

Displaced Coccyx

Displaced tail bone

The coccyx is made up of three vertebra that sit at the bottom of the spine. For most people they are totally insignificant but these three bones are generally fused together and rarely move unless one has an unfortunate accident such as slipping downstairs or slipping on ice.

When this happens there is generally a sharp pain followed by a persistent pain of varying intensity around the base of the spine. When damaging the coccyx due to a fall, most often the coccyx is pushed forwards and it’s a simple but uncomfortable operation to pull it back into place.

The coccyx can also be displaced during childbirth where it is more typically displaced backwards or to the

Neuro Linguistic Programming

A modern psychology

Neuro Linguistic Programming often referred to as NLP, deals with how we organize what we see, hear and feel, how we filter everything through our senses (Ne uro), how we describe it in language (Linguistic) and then act on it either consciously or unconsciously to produce result.

Research started in the early 1970’s with John Grinder and Richard Bandler who studied three top therapists at that time: Fritz Perls (originator of Gestalt Therapy), Virginia Satir (outstanding Family Therapist) and Milton Erikson (world famous hypnotherapist).

What emerged were patterns of successful therapy and effective ways of thinking and communicating. Bandler and Grinder refined these patterns and skills until they had a workable model for effective communication, powerful personal

Illness as a spiritual emergency

I was recently sitting by the bed of a very ill patient who had suffered a major stroke wondering why? Why is it that such a good life ends in such unfair and unimaginable suffering?

The idea dawned on me that perhaps there is some residual suffering that is self inflicted. Just think, today the body fails and the personality becomes angry, disappointed, disillusioned and blames their body, blames God and existence for their pain and this happens in every generation.

Life can be very painful with injuries and illness to body and mind, so if it is correct as Buddhist and Hindus claim that reincarnation is a fact of our human existence, then perhaps

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
