CONTINUING SERIES ON BELIEVING AND SERIES OF HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO KEEP OUR BODY CELLS HAPPY
They say we should live each day to the fullest, and that also includes Mondays.
When you fill the first day of the week with energy and hope that something great is going to happen, your entire week will look and feel different.
Sure, we love weekends, but life happens every day and Mondays are not that bad unless we choose to see them that way. So, grab your coffee, put a smile on your face and see how this day can be just as great as any other. Ready to start your Monday!!
Take your lunch break alone. It’s all too easy to fall into step with others at work and follow the crowd. But take an hour to yourself. Choose what you eat and where you go. Instead of filling your time with chit-chat, go for a walk or sit in a park and read a book.
Love yourself enough to set boundaries. Your time and energy are precious. You get to choose how you use it. By Anna Taylor
Without others to please, you will be free to think for yourself. Not only will you learn to trust your own decisions, you’ll understand the consequences that come with making them. And if you fail, you’ll be able to pick yourself up and try again. Each time you make a choice whether it turns out to be right or wrong, you’ll feel stronger and braver. You’ll believe in yourself even more, without worrying about pleasing others.
Solitude is the soul’s holiday, an opportunity to stop doing for others. To surprise and delight ourselves instead. By Katrina Kenison
This is what happiness looks like...literally!!!!!"What you see is a myosin protein dragging an endorphin along a filament to the inner part of the brain's parietal cortex which creates happiness.
Have you been keeping your body cells happy! Each type of cell in the human body is specially equipped for its role. Cells of the digestive system, for instance, are vastly different in structure and function from cells of the skeletal system. Cells of the body depend on each other to keep the body functioning as a unit. There are hundreds of types of cells, but the following are the 11 most common.
Last week I have already gone over ten of the most common cells; stem cells, bones cells, blood cells, muscle cells, fat cells, skin cells, nerve cells, endothelial cells, sex cells and pancreatic cells. Today I will post on the last most common cell, which is cancer cells.
Unlike all of the other cells listed, cancer cells work to destroy the body. Cancer results from the development of abnormal cell properties that cause cells to divide uncontrollably and spread to other locations. Cancer cell development can originate from mutations stemming from exposure to chemicals, radiation, and ultraviolet light. Cancer can also have genetic origins such as chromosome replication errors and cancer-causing viruses of the DNA.
Let your dreams take you to the corners of your smiles. To the highest of your hopes. To the windows of your opportunities and to the most special places your heart has ever known.

Yesterday Dan and I took a friend that is visiting us to Virginia Museum of Transportation and afterwards we walked to the market place.
Did you do your walking? I know some will say they do not have enough time with work, kids and house hold chores!!! Dan and I have put together videos from WALK AT HOME together on our website, that you can follow in home; when you have short periods of time and unable to go out. They are from 15 mins up to 30 mins depending on the miles. This is one of the first steps to making your cells happy!!

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 SMILE, LAUGH, GIGGLE
As I sit and conjure my thoughts, a question comes to mind. If you could have your cake and eat it too--would you? There are two sides to every coin, as there are to every story. But I can say our journey shared over these next pages shows an experience many of us share. There are dark moments and moments of inspiration. There is love, along with sheer terror. Tears stain these pages, showing the reviving energy of great joy. Hope and education are what I am trying to provide. In the end, what is life without them? This writing is for finding inspiration when it is lost.
Dan and I are neither a doctor, nor have the experience of one, but we are both survivors of cancer who feared for our lives. This is not about what is right or wrong; it is about educating ourselves to make choices, along with the awesome power of knowledge.
Everyone should be given a choice, and it should be up to each of us to educate ourselves. With the internet, today, it's easy to research and discover alternative therapies and methodologies for treating and winning the battle against this disease. So first, we must believe that these solutions are possible. This is Dan’s and my personal story we choose to share with you so that you may become aware of another path to wellness of the body, mind, and spirit (FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE).
This is the time to get ready for food and remedies that heal; alchemy of herbs. Today starts a week! So, I’m going to start blogging on a new herb, LAVENDER.
Discover what ancient Roman soldiers and British royalty knew about the healing powers of lavender. The word lavender itself comes from Latin, having the same root as the word lavare which means, “to wash.” The Romans used lavender for its antiseptic and deodorizing properties.
Although the horrific sanitary conditions of a Roman field hospital are probably not the most pleasant things to dwell on, the scattering of dried lavender surely helped absorb fluids and deodorized the room. It may have also kept down the spread of infection. There was most certainly an aromatherapy benefit — imagine soldiers from the Mediterranean world fighting in far off Britain; the smell of the lavender fields of Southern Gaul might have given some measure of comfort to the wounded.
Today, lavender can also be used for its absorbing and deodorizing properties. The dried buds absorb over four times their weight in water, drawing liquids in via capillary action. Furthermore, the buds encapsulate the absorbed liquids, because a sturdier husk surrounds the more absorbent papery core of petals. So, the liquid enters the bud, is deodorized, and dries within it. Coupled with the antiseptic properties of the flower, this may have been why it was so valued as an early disinfectant and deodorant.
