The Luxury of Spas

spa1Locate a patch of trees and expect to find water underneath as well. Just like plants, man can survive for many weeks without solid food as long as he has water to drink. Traditionally water is considered the source of all life. What magical powers water possess?

Immerse yourself in water and relieve the ills of the flesh. Known as hydrotherapy, this has been one of the most effective forms of medicine since the ancient times. Submersion in water allows tired tissues to relax and recover stamina. A warm bath stimulates circulation, luring blood to the body’s extremities to soothe, calm, and sedate.

On the other hand, cold water inhibits the circulation to the skin, redirecting blood to the vital organs in order to restore, energize, and build resistance to diseases. Bathing in a warm tub relaxes tense muscles, turning the mind inward and instilling that sense of peace as stress drifts away.

A spas bath is an extraordinary treatment when mineral-rich sea water or fresh spring water is used. For this reason, many of the sought-after spas in the world are located on coastal areas or adjacent to natural mineral springs. Coastal spas pump in sea water for thalassic therapy – Greek for “sea treatment”. The water is heated since it is believed that doing so increases the adoption of minerals.

Mineral water spas divert water gushing from its underground source into pipes connected to the treatment rooms. In a certain area, the quality of spring water may vary, some waters sparkling with natural carbonation, which increases circulation and flushes impurities out of the skin. According to those who bathe in such therapeutic waters, the bathe stimulates as well as relaxes the mind and draw out toxins from the body. These processes are intended to cool inflammation and makes muscles more supple. The water leaves the skin soft, velvety, and well-hydrated.

Right in your homes, create an ambiance that promotes rejuvenation. Turn off overhead lights, and use several candles instead. Play some lush, relaxing music. Diffuse the air and mix the spa water with some aromatic oils of aromatherapy. Decorate the rooms with flowers.

Water temperature is critical for an effective hydrotherapy treatment. For a relaxing bath, the temperature should be at 35degreesC for 10 to 15 minutes; sore muscles at 38degressC of five to 10 minutes. For an invigorating bath; five minutes at 18-24degreesC. You can use a kitchen thermometer to determine the water temperature.

If you prefer extremely hot baths, stay in the water no longer than five minutes. Hot water dries and tightens the skin and can leave you feeling “wiped out”. The Chinese believe that staying in hot water too long is unhealthy and drains your chi.

After bathing, splash yourself with cool water to tone and invigorate your skin. Cold water also closes the pores of the skin so you don’t get sick.

Massage is also an excellent compliment while you’re still in the tub. Natural sea sponges or loofah rolled down your back and shoulders stimulate and exfoliate the skin. A pumice stone can be used to remove foot calluses.

Plain water cleans very well. Don’t sit in a tub of soapy water. Doing so dries and irritates skin

Checklist to Long Life

jogging

The great sages of ancient India gave man a priceless gift – one that would promote the maintenance and protection of his health. The gift is the ayurvedas, the oldest scientific medical system in the world with along record of clinical experience. With its holistic approach of combining the body, mind, and spirit, the ayurvedas shows how to cure diseases as well as promote longevity. The desire to maintain fitness, health, and longevity is one of the common aspirations of man.

A healthy person has a balanced digestion and metabolism, such as the function of his tissues and waste materials are normal. In such a healthy state, he achieves a well formed constitution, an attractive appearance, good muscular strength, and complete peace of mind. With good health, he gains recognition in the society, friendship with all people, honor, and wealth, since he has the energy and ability to achieve his goals.

Long life is a cherished desire by most people. However for those who are continuously rocked and tangled by the stress and pressures of a high-strung society, long life is vied as a dreadful nightmare. Whether you consider longevity as a curse or blessing, there are physical signs to show you if you are a possible candidate for long life. This information is contained in the chakara samhita, which dates back to around 1,500 BC. Some of this signs are repeated but at least you know exactly what tissues are in optimal condition and which ones are not. Check how many of these signs you might have:

*The skin of the individual is soft, smooth, firm and fine. The forehead is prominent, in the shape of a half moon. The ears, when viewed from the front, appear small, but appear large when raised up and full of flesh when seen from behind.

*The eyes show their white and black parts distinctly. The eyelashes are thick and well set. The nose is straight and moderately prominent, with large nostrils and the end rose up somewhat. The lips are red but not protruding. The jaws are large, as is the mouth. The teeth touch each other and are glossy, smooth, white in color, and equal ion size. The tongue is red, long, and thin. The chin is big and well-formed. The nails are thin, red, and rose up slightly. The hands and feet are rather large, glossy, full of flesh, and red-dish. The fingers are long and, when placed together, do not leave any space between them.

*The back of the body is expansive and the spine covered with flesh. The voice is deep and resonant, with a nasal sound to it, and lingers after speaking. The skin is glossy and vibrant. All the bones are appropriately   proportioned and capable of separate and easy movement. The joints are well-knit and strongly connected by muscle and blood, strong and full of flesh. The flesh and blood are best quality, in the right proportion, and all the limbs are ideally juxtaposed.

Such individuals of proportionate musculature and compactness of the body possess very good strength. With these, they can defend themselves from the onslaught of disease. They can stand hunger, thirst, heat, cold and severe physical exercise. They can digest and assimilate large amounts of food properly.

The optimal condition of the blood is seen in the quality of the skin – glossy, smooth, soft, attractive, thin, and tender. This glossy and red color is also seen in ears, mouth, tongue, lips, nose, palms, and soles of the feet.

When the muscle tissue is in the best condition, the back of the neck, forehead, temples, eyes, chin, shoulders, stomach, breast, and joints of the hands and feet become solid, strong, attractive, the voice deep and pleasing, the hair and nails soft and glossy.

When the bone tissue is in the best of health, you have large and well-formed heels, ankles, knees, elbows, collar bones, chin, and forehead. The other bones, nails, and teeth are large, compact, and steady. You know that your nerve tissue is working well when you possess a very soft but strong body, deep voice, glossy skin, and long, rounded joints. When the reproductive tissue is functioning well, you have an attractive personality, a joyful temperament, glossy, strong teeth, hair, nails, full red lips, and a good sexual capacity.

Death of a Loved One-”I’m leaving”

dead-lonely Death experienced is a very painful experience.

It is common to see the loved ones of the person who just passed away, mourning and crying all tears at the funeral in front of the casket of the person who left them. They are in full misery, out of loved to the person who just died. They are missing the happy moments with him and everything around him. Whatever the relation they have to the person a wife or husband, father, mother, son, daughter or whatever, it is really painful specially when you have a long time of togetherness and bonding. Specially when the person is of good character even neighbors mourns for his death.

A loving husband so dear to his wife and children brings sorrows and pain to the ones being left behind and it will takes time to heal the pain. A responsible father, a good provider, a counselor and a good husband will be remembered by all the rest of his family. He did not bring any problems at home but instead he takes all the responsibility and give solutions to all members and kin. Everyone is proud for him and every good deeds he made was always praise at his wake, everything, his achievements, everything.

“Is daddy in heaven?” A tearful question of a young girl address to her mother.

The pain of death of a loved one is understandable, but do we ever think of the situation of the one who died? Yes, maybe at the time of his death bed, dying from a painful disease we can see or imagine his pain.

But do we ever think of the pain while leaving your loved ones? Let put ourselves to the “one” leaving our loved ones, to the one dying…….

For Adults Only? Cycle3-next level

old-age

Enjoy life while young….the question is, it is enjoyable?

People of an early age get to enjoy life to the fullest, they can eat anything they want, they can drink sky is the limit and have sex till they last drop. They can party all night and enjoy their favorite sports with less exhaustion and their energy back the next day. Young queer ones explore new adventures with drugs, smoking and alcohol but ignorance is no excuse, these stuffs for sure limits life’s extension.

Aging people try to extend their desire to enjoy or rather they try to extend being young for the reason of enjoyment, insecurities and frustrations. As men suffers erectile dysfunction, women has menopause stage. This is how the “ripe” faces old age problem, but they still find solutions to these. Viagra is one, hormones injection and other options. Women take advances of the high technology of cosmetics to erase wrinkles, face sagging and every signs of aging that manifest on their face. They now attend to their fitness to maintain their attractive sexy figures afraid of being left behind. Their enjoyment to eat they can is limit and minimize because of their aging situation.

Old people must or they do realized that their time limit is now set….set to the next level? Whether one likes it or not, there is no matter of choices, it is bound that the next thing to old age is dead(another blog).

I just want to express the thoughts of old age and its miseries. Do we have to wait for this time to come where we can not cope to it or make a prompt before we age? Do we need to experience wanting to enjoy but our body cannot? Old peoples mind has still the strong urges to enjoy(sex) but their body cannot react to it. Do we need to experience living in the home for the aged, alone? Just left alone thinking of the good or bad memoirs in the past. Do we need to experience lapses of memory before we can remember Our Father, A Savior or a merciful God, who is just waiting for us to approach Him and ask help or forgiveness, probably before we go old.

We must prepare ourselves by knowing that time is one factor in life that we cannot retrieve. The memories of an old man is the one left enjoyable to him and the same time is painful. Let us not waste the time of being young and energetic. “Human life is meant for thoughtfulness”.

For Adults Only? Cycle 2

Cycle 2

When the sperm enters the fallopian tube, it dies because it is alienated to it, it is not the compatible domain for them. It becomes toxic and secretes poison to the mother and must under go a major operation to remove the fallopian tube.

It takes more than 36 weeks to complete the development from fetus to a fully grown baby. Science has its researches and the scriptures tells it. When the tiny human comes out of the womb, it cries, it is alive and kicking and the mother was joyful. It takes time till he crawls, sit, mumbles words  and walk. As he grew up, he passes again different stages, the age of puberty, adolescent stage until he develop into a full grown man or woman. The body undergoes different changes as it grows just like a butterfly that started from a cocoon or a frog from a tag pole.

As time goes, he was now attracted to the opposite sex, got married and build his own family and have children of his own. (Not to speak of the engagement in life,upbringing, education, work, and other social problems, it’s another series of post) And his children begets children too.

Now this is cycle 3, he is now an adult and aging. Old age limits one’s propensities, sight becomes poor, a need of hearing aid and viagra at night. Old people becomes aware of their diet. They cannot eat all what they want like in the younger days. The are limit to eating lots of fruits and vegetables now, no alcohol, not even moderate and no smoking. The erectile dysfunction is visible and a need for more walking and excersises.

Scientist research for the “fountain of youth” was a total frustration. One cannot enjoy life at an aging stage. The mind is very eager and desirous to enjoy but the body cannot. We can slow down old age but we cannot stop the next cyle.

One of my taichi teacher told me that taichi is not for old people but rather it is for young, because it effects the whole body as a whole to slow down aging. It affects the circulation of blood, the air we breath in and our energy retains. Taichi has an innumerable effect to the practitioner.

Do we need to reach this stage and start to ascend back? Well it is better late than never or what the hell about it, we will all get old and die. Enjoy life while young……to be continued

For Adults Only?

At start up.

“Life begins at 40″? Well, life begins when tiny sperms race to the fertile grounds inside the womb, it begins during conception. When these sperms touches this fertile ground, life begins. Just like a seed that touches the ground, goes underneath and watered, the seed grows into a seedling.

The pros & the antis of the society debate on this. The anti-abortion is the pro-life while the pro-abortion is anti-life(sounds strange). The pros think that the baby in the womb is not yet living or no life at all or should they say that “it”, the baby is not consciousness until it comes out from the womb, then “it” is alive.

The antis or the pro-life states that the baby inside the womb is alive, it grows day by day, week by week, and months. Science proves these cycles of growing while inside the womb, the growing of nails, eyes, hairs and sexual organs. When the sperms landed to a place called the fallopian tube, the sperms dies and become toxic and kills the mother within 24hrs.

To be continued….
