We must maintain a relationship with ourselves.
INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017
I bend so I don’t break. “To me, I don’t necessarily need it in writing to let everyone know that I bend. For a majority of us, it’s a personal relationship, one that not everyone may understand. If understood, they may never know our individual reasons for our daily bending.
If you haven’t bent physically today or yesterday, I would bet that you’ve somehow bent figuratively. Dan and I understand that not everything will go our way 100% of the time. We see things as they are: those that can be changed and those that cannot. Our lives don’t teach us to mold ourselves to others’ ideals, but it does teach us to bend for balance. It’s a constant cycle of give and take.
Every day, week, month and year we approach situations where we must use our practice to get us through. It may be something very small or it could be life changing. Meditation enables us to feel confidence in ourselves to always act in our best interest–operating from our highest expression–to ensure these situations are met with grace and an open mind.
Yet sometimes, we inevitably find ourselves making exceptions. Undertaking tasks that we may not necessarily enjoy, and appearing in places we’d rather not be seen. In most instances we have done it in the name of love. We do an act of service because we bend for those that are most important to us. Without our willingness to bend, we may lose those relationships.
Much like the relationships we tend to with others, we must also maintain a relationship with ourselves. This is often referred to as the most important relationship. Dan and I have devotion, discipline and goals to uphold the love we have for ourselves. In the bend of a pose, in the bend of emotion, and in the bend of a service we find the stability we need for our life. A happy, healthy and strong life.
Continuing on blogging of INFORMATION FROM THE CANCER CONTROL SOCIETY CONVENTION OF 2017 with the supplement – PROBIOTICS.
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially your digestive system. We usually think of these as germs that cause diseases.
But your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.
You can find probiotics in supplements and some foods, like yogurt. Doctors often suggest them to help with digestive problems.
Researchers are trying to figure out exactly how probiotics work. Some of the ways they may keep you healthy:
When you lose "good" bacteria in your body, for example after you take antibiotics, probiotics can help replace them.
They can help balance your "good" and "bad" bacteria to keep your body working the way it should.
Many types of bacteria are classified as probiotics. They all have different benefits, but most come from two groups. Ask your doctor about which might best help you.
Lactobacillus. This may be the most common probiotic. It's the one you'll find in yogurt and other fermented foods. Different strains can help with diarrhea and may help people who can't digest lactose, the sugar in milk.
Bifidobacterium. You can find it in some dairy products. It may help ease the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and some other conditions.
Saccharomyces boulardii is a yeast found in probiotics. It appears to help fight diarrhea and other digestive problems.
Since I was diagnosed close to ten years ago one of my home programs is taking a probiotic. Reminder; as I blog about vitamins and other substance concerning cancer and prevention; my quest is to gear you to seek a professional in functional medicine. The reason is, they are experts in reading lab work to see what you are lacking and also will help you get to the root of your condition.
There are three cancer-fighting capabilities displayed by the friendly bacteria.
First, certain super strains of the friendly bacteria eliminate pro-carcinogenic substances before they can turn carcinogenic. Among these are the nitrites.
Before the substance can be converted into cancer-causing carcinogens in the intestinal tract, specific strains of L. acidophilus step in and neutralize them.
Even better, the best of the friendly bacteria super strains has the ability to metabolize any pro-carcinogens that escape and convert them back into non-carcinogenic substances.
Second, beneficial bacteria are capable of altering certain enzymes (such as b-glucuronidase and nitro-reductase) that turn pro-carcinogens into carcinogenic agents. The bad bacteria that secrete these destructive enzymes include Clostridium and certain Bacteroides. Among others obviously, the more dangerous enzymes that are the present in the gastrointestinal tract; the greater your risk harboring cancer causing substances.
The ability of active super strains of L acidophilus bacteria to neutralize these harmful enzyme’s is one of their most important contributions to cancer prevention.

Third, the immune systems workload is further complicated by the need to clean the body of the increasing number of extraneous pollutants and contaminants found in the environment and the food chain. Overloaded with work, the immune system needs all the help it can get from the friendly bacteria.
How? When disease causing aliens are able to permeate the intestinal walls and enter the bloodstream, the immune system must spring into action. As long as strong colonies of friendly bacteria line the intestinal tract in full force, these harmful micro-organisms will not be able to get through; thus, lightening the already heavy workload of the immune system.
Through scientific research, they have seen that friendly bacteria can reduce the threat of potential cancer-causing agents in the body and increase the body’s immunity into inactive carcinogens.
Probiotics have been shown to reduce levels of dangerous carcinogen forming enzymes in the gastrointestinal tract, as well as boost the function of the immune system.

Above all, we should live, breathe and act from a place of compassion. With compassion comes compromise. Within compromise is the fear of losing ourselves because of something or someone else. However, if you’ve acted from a place of understanding, compassion and compromise will come without fear.
As a cycle does, it always comes back around. We find ourselves at this understanding once again. We need to practice the ability to understand why we and others bend. Without it we risk setting our world out of balance. Without balance, injury occurs. Bending in essence is a precaution. It’s a way to ensure we don’t break spirits, hearts and humanity.
Until tomorrow, when you encounter difficulties and contradictions, do not try to break them, but bend them with gentleness and time.
