Residents on the small Japanese island of Okinawa in the Ryukyu archipelago south of mainland Japan live longer on average than many other cultural groups and some say they are the longest lived people with lifespans of 100 – 115 years of age common and many well documented studies have been made to support this claim.
In addition to a longer life, there are fewer incidences of the diseases that plague the Western world such as heart disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s. Scientists are so impressed that they generally agree that by adopting an Okinawan style diet, it is possible to retard or

And does it affect one’s health?
The term “Islamophobia” is defined as “an unfounded hostility towards Islam and Muslims”, yet what is called the religion of Islam demands of its followers that they enslave or kill every non Muslim. Therefore Islamophobia is an instinctive response to survive.
There is another quote “as we think, so we become.” This means that whatever we think and whatever we believe will have some consequences. For instance, the person who thinks that they are unworthy is unlikely to become successful in life. Yet the person who believes that they are ‘right’ can be successful regardless of the cost to people around them.
Humanity today is at crisis point. In most countries there is a

A foundational practise
Most people understand that activities go better with some planning and while some things that occur spontaneously can be brilliant, some can go horribly wrong. Meditation grounds us in a reality that leads to a harmonious life and success.
Whatever we do, we want to be successful but sometimes the best planning and our most sincere actions don’t always result in success. But if we look at some of the people who meditate, they range from executives within the world’s most successful companies to ordinary people who want to achieve the best out of life.
Many meditators say that meditation is actually instinctive and this is borne out by the fact that usually before we commence any

Medicine is an experimental science
Health care as with every aspect of humanity is controlled and affected by Politics and Money. The politicians decide what health care we have access to, how much it will cost, and of course where there is money and power, we also get conspiracies.
Throughout history humanity has been structured with either leaders and followers or rulers and subjects, but what about democracy?
You may live in what you consider a democracy where you can vote for your government representative, but amongst millions, your vote means little and in many democracies governments are elected to rule with a very small percentage of the populations vote and for those who voted for other than the ruling

Recycling money away from real need
Washington, DC. Global health funding hit an all-time high of $31.3 billion in 2013, five times greater than in 1990. Yet with 3.9% growth from 2012 to 2013, the year-over-year increase falls short of the rapid rates seen over the previous decade, according to new research by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington being published online in a web first edition on April 8 by Health Affairs.
Health care costs keep escalating and everyone expects more from the health care dollar, but is this reasonable? The total world spending on health in 2003 according to the World Health Organization (WHO) was 10.2 percent of

A process of personal and social responsibility

In today’s modern world there is a continuous argument going on about what it means or what is to be healthy and what constitutes a healthy lifestyle.
For the sake of this argument, health is the absence of suffering which includes the absence of disease and social disharmony. In other words, the bodies and minds of every individual in society need to be healthy and able to function as they were designed.
Unfortunately we are living in an age where suffering is rampant and ignorance rules. The idea of democracy was that we would all become sufficiently enlightened to a happy, healthy and peaceful world. Unfortunately that has not

An age old phenomenon
You have likely heard the expression “new age”. But really its nothing new other than that many individuals are seeking to understand their world and become happier citizens. Every generation does this, children set out to become ‘better’ than their parents yet fall back into suffering the trials of life.
New Age Is
New Age is about taking conscious responsibility for your own life and not blaming others for their problems.
It’s about deciding to learn and grow into a more responsive human being.
It’s knowing that you don’t have to be right, except for yourself.
It’s seeing problems as lessons, perhaps in a long series of lives and lessons.
It’s not about belief, it’s about

Life in a world at war
In order to be successful in the capitalist system, one must become hard headed and exploitative. Successful people today mould their personalities as weapons for success and then wonder why they suffer.
The leadership in this direction is provided by the United States of America. This country needs war because its economy is based on the manufacturing and supply of weapons of mass destruction. Through the leadership of the United States that has invaded more than 60 countries to set up their own puppet leaders who will favour US business interests, the world is spiralling towards destruction. The current conflicts in the Middle East were directly manufactured by the United States administrators.
