WHAT YOU FEED YOUR MIND DETERMINES YOUR APPETITE.
CONTINUING SERIES ON BELIEVING AND SERIES OF HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO KEEP OUR BODY CELLS HAPPY
Its, Monday again! How was every one’s weekend? What did you do for Mother’s Day, anything special? Love to hear from you – leave a message
Dan and I had this exciting picnic trip planned, to go to Carvins Cove Natural Reserve Park.
He found a website on line with information and it looked really nice and peaceful with a lake and boating. What a great place to have a picnic. However, there was no address; so, Dan looked it up on Google. You know where you can get anything! The address led us to the part of the park where the trails were and we ran across several bikers (bicycles), but no picnic tables.
To make a long story short, we ended up going to our usual place, by mistake for we were coming back from a different location. We definitely, will try again. So, expect some pictures of the park real soon.
I am in charge of how I feel and today I am choosing happiness.
Since it’s Monday, having a positive attitude means being optimistic about situations, interactions, and yourself. People with positive attitudes remain hopeful and see the best even in difficult situations. In contrast, those with negative attitudes may be more pessimistic and disagreeable, and typically expect the worst outcome in tough situations.
While having a positive attitude doesn’t necessarily make you less stressed, it can equip you with the tools you need to cope with stress in a healthier way. Why is having a positive attitude important? You’ll be more optimistic, you’ll deal with disappointments and failures more easily, you’ll be more empathetic and understanding toward others, you’ll be more grateful.
Ways to Keep a Positive Attitude: 1. Start a gratitude journal. 2. Treat yourself to some self-care every day. 3. Start every morning strong. 4. Avoid spreading gossip. 5. Crack more jokes. 6. Take real breaks. 7. Have something to look forward to after work. 8. Practice meditation. 9. Focus on the long-term instead of the short-term. 10. Listen to music that matches your mood. Plus, your body cells will love you for it.
Speaking about your body cells, Dan and I were asked by our financial adviser several weeks ago, what would be the one thing that we would state in maintaining good health? Dan answered right away food and with your gut; you are what you eat. I on the other hand replied, body, heart and soul. But it could only be one word. Well, it would be your body cell.
As I have been blogging about this topic, going back as far as when I went to Mexico for treatment of breast cancer, I was given methods that would be a part of the belief that it starts with the cells.
As I continue to be re-reading my book that I wrote four years ago; it’s a personal journey of my everyday experience with treatments that I received in Mexico. In relations to the current series of BELIEVING, entry 1-20-11; ೋღ♥ FIRST DAY OF TREATMENT ♥ღೋ
Written by my doctors regarding the procedure:
Scientists know that when the cells of the body are exposed to higher-than-normal temperatures, changes take place inside the cells, and that some of these changes can be harnessed to increase the likely effectiveness of orthomolecular cancer treatments.
The earliest attempts to treat cancer using heat were met with mixed results due in large part to the difficult challenge inherent in regulating the ideal temperature to a specific part of the body while limiting potentially invasive or deleterious effects on other parts of the body.
Today, advancements such as the SO3H system provide superior control and precision heat delivery.
Unlike healthy human cells that love oxygen, cancer cells are anaerobic, i.e., cannot live in high oxygen concentrations.
Overexposure to oxygen in tumor cells, also known as the Hypothermic Ozonification, results in over-acidification of the heated cells and a consequent nutrient deficiency in the tumor.
Cellular metabolism is destroyed, resulting in apoptosis (cell death) of the tumor cells.
The proprietary SO3 Hyperthermia System in our program has been proven to have phenomenal synergistic effects with the rest of the treatment approach.
Another entry, 1-22-11; ANOTHER DAY
Dendritic cell (DC) therapy also called dendritic cell vaccine, is a newly emerging and potent form of immunotherapy used to treat cancer conditions. In case of cancer, dendritic cell therapy is an immunotherapy that harnesses the body's own immune system to fight cancer.
The dendritic cell itself is an immune cell whose role is the recognition, processing, and presentation of foreign antigens to the T-cells in the effector arm of the immune system.
Although dendritic cells are potent cells, they are not usually present in adequate quantity to allow for a potent immune response. Dendritic cell therapy thus involves the harvesting of blood cells (monocytes or macrophages) from a patient and processing them in the laboratory to produce dendritic cells, which are then given back to a patient in order to allow massive dendritic participation in optimally activating the immune system. Per my doctor, pretend that your white blood cells are your army and the cancer cells are the enemy. They withdraw some of your army, multiply, and then return them to create more to fight the enemy.
So, you see why it’s important to keep your cells happy! Life starts with the body cells.
Everything that I have posted in the 416 post were all about prevention and protecting our number one element that keeps us healthy – THE CELL.
I will be posting more regarding this subject this week.
MAKE YOUR LIFE THE BEST IT CAN
Each new day is a blank page in the dairy of your life. The pen is in your hand, but the lines will not all be written the way you choose; some will come from the world and the circumstances that surround you. But for the many things that are in your control, remember this…
The secret of life is in making your story as beautiful as it can be. Write the dairy of your days and fill the pages with words that come from the heart. As the pages take you through time, you will discover paths that will add to your happiness and your sorrows, but if you can do these things, there will always be hope in your tomorrows.
Follow your dreams. Work hard. Be kind. This is all anyone could ever ask; do what you can to make the door open on a day that is filled with beauty in some special way. Remember; goodness will be rewarded. Smiles will pay you back. Have fun. Find strength. Be truthful. Have faith. Don’t focus on the things you lack.
Realize that people are the treasures in life and happiness is the real wealth. Have a dairy that describes how you are doing your best and the rest will take care of itself. By Douglas Pagels
MOVE YOUR BODY
You don’t have to be an exercise fanatic to get up and start moving, as there’s a class and sport for everyone. If you don’t fancy a run or a bike ride, sign up for a pay-as-you-go gym class and try something new like Zumba or Pilates. If you prefer to exercise at home, follow an aerobics lesson or a yoga session from YouTube. If you’re really averse to organized workouts, put on your favorite playlist and dance until you feel breathless and sweaty. Whatever you choose, exercise releases endorphins, which will boost your mood and energize you.
Yes, Dan and I did our walking, meditation and Qigong; yesterday. Did you as a prevention to keep your body cells happy?

This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. Awhile back I posted about GARLIC and the benefits of this herb, along with some recipes.

Until Tuesday, remember ships don’t sink because of the water around them. They sink because of the water that gets in them. Don’t let what’s happening around you get inside you and weigh you down. Have a glorious day!
