Mother and Son Art to Heart Journey Tel Aviv and Back

This vid has been a long time in the making.  Had to do some soul-searching, however, one trip changed how I actually viewed my Son’s choice of art.  It was truly a great road trip for us and a lesson in how to listen to each other and appreciate each other’s art form.

I used to think about how in the past there was something always special about the age of each of our children…..the baby years, the terrible twos, first year of school, graduation from grade school….and then look out!!!  Nothing could have ever prepared me for having 4 teenagers. 

Funny how the lesson learned was on me this time in finding the joy in the NOW and not yesterday’s memories or looking so far into the future. What was to be a simple dentist appointment for my oldest in Tel Aviv turned into a heart to heart moment that allowed me to see my son as just a unique and extremely creative and courageous individual with his own voice through his art. Please don’t ever forget to live in the NOW and always find something to be grateful for.

Hope you enjoy our video and feel free to leave a comment. You can see more of Mike’s future art by following on instagram@Mikemagnetism

Rheumatoid Arthritis | Diet and best food to eat

This is a great summary for those who suffer from arthritis. I use ginger and tumeric in green tea. Thanks to Misha for posting😄! I will be suret o try some of these other foods.

The Glitterati Affair

Living with Rheumatoid arthritis is chronic and annoying. Two years ago, our world came crumbling down when me and my family  got to know about our mother being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA). An auto immune disease, but also very common, found in people residing in India and all over the world, this disease has no cure. The treatment for RA is all about steroids, injections and surgeries if uncontrollable. We couldn’t really see her in immense pain and ultimately we all resorted for steroids as the last option keeping in mind, the weather of my hometown which is quite chilly, rainy and cooler for the maximum months of the year. RA has no connection with age or gender. It is an irrevocable occurrence in the immune system which mistakenly attacks our own bodies’ tissues thereby mainly affecting the inner lining of the joints, causing painful swelling, stiffness…

Stop Before You Use That!

I want to talk to you about a subject that is near and dear to my heart.  Even some of the closest people in my life don’t know that I have suffered from it since puberty and went through all sorts of remedies, natural and synthetic before I actually found something that worked for me.  That thing is ACNE, and a thing that seems so little and pales in comparison to something like Cancer or heart disease made my life pretty miserable at the time.   Now it’s very manageable and I try to eat a healthy diet as well as keep a healthy skincare routine.  It didn’t dawn on me that I had beat the battle until one of my teen children began to suffer from it at almost the same age that it began for me.
Unfortunately, the things that worked for me only helped my child mildly.  Everyone’s body reacts differently and really depends as well on your skin type and the underlying cause for the acne.  I noticed in the past that I had more outbreaks after childbirth, during times of high stress, in times of prolonged lack of sleep and when I deviated from my usual diet by a longshot.  For some years now, I have used Charcoal Soap as a cleanser and Coconut Oil to moisturize and protect my skin.  I have some very subtle acne scars from going years without a great remedy and had just resolved that they would be there for the rest of my life.  That’s why I was so excited to see a young lady’s testimony about how vinegar can be used to make skin clearer and other’s testimonies on how it has been a remedy for their acne.
So before you give in to drugs or over-the-counter chemicals and things that are really not good for our bodies in the long run, why not give vinegar a shot.  Not only is it great for acne, but it also has so many other health benefits such as the following:  
  • Detoxifies our bodies
  • Helps to promote great pH balance
  • Great for dandruff and scalp health
  • Kills bacteria
  • Lowers blood sugar levels which would benefit those with diabetes
  • Helps to reduce belly fat and overall weight loss
  • May have protective effects against cancer

Watch and listen to this young lady’s routine and her testimony about vinegar
Can you use any vinegar?
Sure, but for the maximum effect, you really should use an organic vinegar.  The reason why Apple cider vinegar is so great for curing acne is that it returns the acidity of the skin and restores the acid mantle. It also kills bacteria, removes excess dirt, oil, and dissolves dead skin cells.  I have used Bragg’s before and now use Neeman which is 6%.  So far my teen has had a great response in just a week of use!!!!  You never know, maybe if not so shy, he may allow me to post a before and after picture. Please see these  recipes on how to use vinegar and ditch the chemicals and move one step closer towards being healthier:

Being Mentally Strong

abyss-adult-brave-2932I loved this post from a friend so much I had to reblog it!

Site Title

Grit. Resilience. Mental toughness. We hear a lot about these attributes. Of course we have an abundance of strategies and techniques for developing psychological resilience.

When most people set out to become fit, they’re thinking about their physical fitness. Getting in better physical shape tops the list for many.

In this case, if more people focused on their mental fitness, however, they’d likely become more successful in achieving the goals they set for themselves – physical fitness or otherwise.

Building mental muscle is the key to self-discipline, delayed gratification, grit, and perseverance. These are the skills you will need to become the best mental version of yourself.

We all would like to be able to deal with life’s ups and downs with strength and grace, and learning to manage your emotions is another important part of becoming mentally strong.

Keep in mind, being mentally strong doesn’t mean you don’t experience…

Unhealthy Mouth Linked to Health Problems?

Most of us grow up not really taking heed to warnings about our oral hygiene.  I can remember as a child forgetting to brush my teeth many nights before bed.  I had no idea how I was putting my life in jeopardy.

Although you probably understand that poor dental care can lead to cavities, did you know that other, more serious health problems can also result from poor oral care? The truth is that if you don’t take proper care of your teeth, you could face far more serious consequences than a simple toothache or some unsightly stains.

The Mayo Clinic, as well as a report from ABC News, highlight some major areas of importance:

  • Heart disease: The bacteria from swelling of the gums and periodontal disease can enter your bloodstream and travel to the arteries in the heart and cause hardening of the arteries. Atherosclerosis causes plaque to develop on the inner walls of arteries which thicken and this decreases or may even block blood flow to the body. This can cause an increased risk of heart attack or stroke. The inner lining of the heart can also become infected and swollen (a condition known as endocarditis).
  • Dementia: I had no idea about this one! The bacteria from gingivitis (swelling of the gums) may enter the brain through either nerve channels in the head or through the bloodstream This may even lead to the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
  • Lung infections: The Journal of Periodontology warns that gum disease could cause you to get infections in your lungs, including pneumonia. While this cause and effect may not be so obvious , think about breathing in bacteria from infected gums and teeth long-term.
  • Diabetic complications: Inflammation of the gum tissue and periodontal disease can make it harder to control your blood sugar and make your symptoms from diabetes much worse. Diabetes sufferers are also more susceptible to periodontal disease, which means proper dental care is even more important for diabetics.

As you can see, brushing and flossing keeps more than your teeth healthy — they might also prevent serious illnesses. Poor dental care is also a possible factor in other conditions, such as immune system disorders, weak bones, and problems with pregnancy and low birth weight.

Listen to what Dr. Raymond Gist has to say about disease prevention. He’s been advocating for easier access to dental care for years. He was the first African-American president for the American Dental Association.

Practice Good Hygiene Habits

The obvious: Practicing proper dental care is important in many ways you might not have thought of before. Encourage your family to practice good oral hygiene by brushing after every meal. I prefer a more natural, non-flouride toothpaste, such as Tom’s of Maine.  Also floss daily and use a mouth rinse to kill bacteria. You should also visit a dental professional regularly for cleanings and the prevention and treatment of cavities. Doing so can protect more than just your teeth — it can save your life!
