For Everyone!!!

  1. [font=verdana, arial, courier, sans-serif][color=#c04080]my nurse's prayer

    [font=verdana, arial, courier, sans-serif][color=#c04080]when i falter, give me courage.
    when i tire, renew my strength.
    when i weaken because i'm human,
    inspire me on to greater length.

    [font=verdana, arial, courier, sans-serif][color=#c04080]if doctors and patients become demanding,
    and days are too short for all my duty,
    help me remember i chose to serve,
    to do so with grace, and spiritual beauty.

    [font=verdana, arial, courier, sans-serif][color=#c04080]in humility, lord, i labour long hours,
    and though i sometimes may fret;
    my mission is mercy.
    abide with me, that i may never forget.

    god bless you all!!!

    TOP 10 BIGGEST BRAIN DAMAGING HABITS

    1. No Breakfast
    People who do not take breakfast are going to have a lower blood sugar level.
    This leads to an insufficient supply of nutrients to the brain causing brain
    degeneration.

    2. Overeating
    It causes hardening of the brain arteries, leading to a decrease in mental power.

    3. Smoking
    It causes multiple brain shrinkage and may lead to Alzheimer disease .



    4. High Sugar consumption
    Too much sugar will interrupt the absorption of proteins and nutrients causing malnutrition and may interfere with brain development.

    5. Air Pollution
    The brain is the largest oxygen consumer in our body. Inhaling polluted air decreases the supply of oxygen to the brain, bringing about a decrease in brain efficiency.

    6. Sleep Deprivation
    Sleep allows our brain to rest. Long term deprivation from sleep will accelerate the death of brain cells.

    7. Head covered while sleeping
    Sleeping with the head covered, increases the concentration of carbon dioxide and decrease concentration of oxygen that may lead to brain damaging effects.

    8. Working your brain during illness
    Working hard or studying with sickness may lead to a decrease in effectiveness of the brain as well as damage the brain.

    9. Lacking in stimulating thoughts
    Thinking is the best way to train our brain, lacking in brain stimulation thoughts may cause brain shrinkage.



    10. Talking Rarely
    Intellectual conversations will promote the efficiency of the brain

    The main causes of liver damage are:
    1. Sleeping too late and waking up too late are main cause.
    2. Not urinating in the morning.
    3. Too much eating.
    4. Skipping breakfast.
    5. Consuming too much medication.
    6. Consuming too much preservatives, additives, food coloring, and artificial sweetener.
    7. Consuming unhealthy cooking oil. As much as possible reduce cooking oil use when frying, which includes even the best cooking oils like olive oil. Do not consume fried foods when you are tired, except if the body is very fit.
    8. Consuming raw (overly done) foods also add to the burden of liver.
    Veggies should be eaten raw or cooked 3-5 parts. Fried veggies should be finished in one sitting, do not store.


    We should prevent this without necessarily spending more. We just have to adopt a good daily lifestyle and eating habits. Maintaining good eating habits and time condition are very important for our bodies to absorb and get rid of unnecessary chemicals according to "schedule."



    Because:

    Evening at 9 - 11pm: is the time for eliminating unnecessary/toxic chemicals (detoxification) from the antibody system (lymph nodes). This time duration should be spent by relaxing or listening to music. If during this time a housewife is still in an unrelaxed state such as washing the dishes or monitoring children doing their homework, this will have a negative impact on health.

    Evening at 11pm - 1am: is the detoxification process in the liver, and ideally should be done in a deep sleep state.

    Early morning 1 - 3am: detoxification process in the gall, also ideally done in a deep sleep state.

    Early morning 3 - 5am: detoxification in the lungs. Therefore there will sometimes be a severe cough for cough sufferers during this

    time. Since the detoxification process had reached the respiratory tract, there is no need to take cough medicine so as not to interfere with toxin removal process.

    Morning 5 - 7am: detoxification in the colon, you should empty your bowel.

    Morning 7 - 9am: absorption of nutrients in the small intestine, you should be having breakfast at this time. Breakfast should be earlier, before 6:30am, for those who are sick. Breakfast before 7:30am is very beneficial to those wanting to stay fit. Those who always skip breakfast, they should change their habits, and it is still better to eat breakfast late until 9 - 10am rather than no meal at all.

    Sleeping so late and waking up too late will disrupt the process of removing unnecessary chemicals. Aside from that, midnight to 4:00 am is the time when the bone marrow produces blood. Therefore, have a good sleep and don't sleep late.

    Uhhh - can you please cite your source? The info in the second post is certainly urban legend at best. This is one of the reasons that we do not give nor provide any kind of medical advice.

    That explains a lot....I am an ex smoker
    Yeah what's up with "multiple brains" ? I guess what is meant is that smoking does damage to multiple areas of your brain.
    Remember the fried egg commercial which stated "Your brain on drugs"?

    i thought that the body works on a continual basis?? do people who work night shift have higher rates of anemia because they aren't asleep at 4am?

    I just want to clarify something if you dont mind. The purpose of posting this info is not to give nor provide any kind of medical advise. It's just only a quote given by a friend and I just want to share it. Sorry for that!!!

    Anyway, thanks for the suggestions!
