I had a lot of anxiety because I believed the myths about diabetes.

More reason to do some of the deep breathing exercises.

All things are possible if you only believe, even losing 15 pounds

Deep breathing reduces my blood pressure by up to 10 points at times, one of the best relaxing techniques to use when stressed and is free.

Behavioral techniques like these are of very limited value if they are not accompanied by a diet that limits stress on the body. Foods that stress the body and bring hormones out of whack are primarily grains, beans and sugars. After getting rid of all of these I suddenly had no trouble handling normal stresses any more because my hormones were balanced. emoticon

You can talk to God all you want and that's great, but the changes happen when you start listening to him.

BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN OTHERS.

Very interesting!

If we saw all the difference even the tiniest of our prayers make, and all the people those...prayers were destined to affect...we would be so paralyzed with awe...that we would be unable to get up off our knees for the rest of our lives.
