Physician (and everyone else) Heal Thyself!

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

One of the most amazing things about the body human is its ability to heal itself. Left to their own devices, a large percentage of human ailments are self eliminating. That means if you leave them alone they will go away.

This does not mean to ignore doctors but to have faith in your body. The doctor can provide medicine to help ease the symptoms and speed up the process but in th end your body cures itself. Sometimes, the medicines actually slow down the healing process. If you have a copugh, it is often your body trying to clear congestion frokm your lungs. Taking cough medicine will stop the cough but it will also delay the clearing of your lungs.

Listen to your body. Share your body's messages with your doctor. Follow the directions to speed up the healing process

We can throw stones,
complain about them,
stumble on them,
climb over them,
or build with them.

  This is good. But, I often wonder how selfless I am when doing this because it makes me happy. A different kind of payment??

Saturday, October 31, 2009

"Everything that's really worthwhile in life comes to us free - our minds, our souls, our bodies, our hopes, our dreams, our intelligence, our love of family and friends and country. All of these priceless possessions are free."

The 100 Calorie Pack

Friday, October 30, 2009

The greatest inv3ention for those of us keeping an eye on the pounds is the 100 calorie pack. Doctors and scientists tell us that we eat the first two bites of an item for the taste and the rest of it because it isn't gone. By buying the 100 calorie pack, you can satisfy a craving for chocolate or sugar or whatever without spoiling the afternoon by eating the whole 500 calorie candy bar.
