Health and Numerology – Problems to Guard Against for Your Life Path

Your health is your most precious commodity. If you new you had a predisposition to certain health problems, wouldn’t you take steps to guard your good health? Numerology can predict certain health problems that you may encounter.

Life Path Calculation

Your Life Path is your primary number in Numerology. It’s equivalent to your Sun sign in Astrology. You calculate your Life Path by adding together all the digits of your full date of birth, and then repeating the process until you get a single digit. This process is called fadic addition.

For example, actor Johnny Deep was born on June 9th, 1963, so his Life Path is a (7) as shown below.

06-09-1963 = (0 + 6 + 0 + 9 + 1 + 9 + 6 + 3) = (34) = (3 + 4) = (7)

Life Path (1) – Leaders

People with this life path are so driven and ambitious that they tend to ignore their physical health. Stress can be a major problem for them. They need to incorporate physical exercise into their lives as a coping mechanism to deal with high stress levels.

Life Path (2) – Cooperators

The Causes and Treatment of Toothache (Odontalgia)

According to the British Dental Health Foundation “about 5 million people visit their dentist with toothache every year”. Toothache is a common problem that can be prevented with good oral hygiene.

Toothache occurs because the pulp of the tooth is exposed, disturbed or infected. The pulp is the inner layer of the tooth which is engulfed in a layer of dentin and then by the hard layer that we see called the enamel, which is packed full of minerals. Toothache can also occur if just the outer enamel layer is damaged exposing only the dentin.

It is very important that you go to a dentist if you have toothache so that they can find a cause and apply appropriate treatment to ease your discomfort.

The most common dental causes of toothache are:

  • Tooth Root Sensitivities – over-sensitivity when consuming hot or cold, sweet or sour food and beverages.
  • Tooth Decay – also known as tooth ‘cavities’ or tooth ‘caries’.
  • Tooth Abscess – a complication of tooth decay.
  • Gum Disease – also known as gingivitis and in severe cases periodontal disease.
  • Jaw Disease – also known as TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint) dysfunction.
  • A Cracked Tooth.

Tooth Root Sensitivities occur when bacterial toxins get to work and dissolve the bone around the root of the tooth, the gum and bone recede exposing the root of the tooth causing the sensitivity and toothache. This is then likely to lead to chronic gum disease.

Treatment: Visit your dentist. Fluoride gel and sensitivity toothpastes that contain fluoride will both help the root to become stronger and in turn reduce the toothache. If the root sensitivity causes the inner pulp to die a root canal procedure or tooth extraction will need to be carried out to stop the toothache.

Tooth Decay occurs when the minerals of the enamel are dissolved by acid created by bacteria in our mouths (a build up of this bacteria is known as plaque). This demineralisation of the enamel forms a hole in the tooth exposing the dentin causing the toothache. If the toothache is severe then the hole has most likely exposed the inner pulp as well.

The obvious prevention for tooth decay is to eat as little sugar as possible because the acid that causes the enamel to decay is created by the bacteria eating the sugar and starch left in our mouths. So brush your teeth preferably after every meal or snack with fluoride toothpaste. Flossing will also help a lot. Being thorough with your brushing and flossing will stop any build of plaque forming.

Treatment: Your dentist will in most cases apply a filling to the tooth cavity, large cavities may need a crown. If the cavity damages the inner pulp then a root canal procedure or extraction of the tooth may be necessary to stop the toothache.

Tooth Abscesses occur when a dental cavity has been left untreated. The bacteria has infected the tooth from the inner pulp all the way up to the bone tissue at the …

Health Benefits of Strawberry Fruit Soaps

Everyone loves to eat strawberries, but have you ever washed with them? One of the great benefits of natural soap is that during the soap making process, the opportunity exists to get all of the health benefits of your favorite fruits and herbs into soap-not to mention the beautiful colors and scents.

Strawberry soap is a form of natural cold process soap where strawberry extract and sometimes strawberry seeds are added to soap as the soap hardens. Unlike manufactured soap, which is often hot process-meaning that the process of making soap involves constant high temperatures which can denature the beneficial natural chemicals in strawberries-natural cold process soap keeps the natural health benefits of the strawberry fruit intact, but suspended in the solid soap. That means that most of the Vitamins and minerals in the fruit remain in the soap for months.

Strawberries are extremely high in Vitamins C and K as well as pantothenic acid, Vitamin B1, folic acid, and iodine. They also contain high levels of antioxidants, which are known to fight cancer (in fact, strawberries contain compounds that have been shown it inhibit COX enzymes in vitro) and to fight chronic disease as well as providing numerous other health benefits. Strawberries have also been linked to effecting blood vessels, lipoproteins, and platelets in ways that can improve your health. Numerous studies have shown that daily intake of strawberries can bring down the chance of cancer and even the growth of cancerous tissue. Free radicals, which have been shown to contribute to joint problems and arthritis, have also been shown to be reduced by the antioxidants found in strawberries.

Not to mention, strawberries give natural soap a lovely red color that ranges from pink to deep maroon based on the amount of extract used in making the strawberry soap. Strawberries contain phytonutrients, or naturally occurring chemicals, called anthocyanins that combine with sugar to give strawberries a rich red color. This explains why strawberries are red when ripe-because the anthocyanins are colorless at first until the plant starts producing sugar. The sugar then links to the chemical inside the fruit and is responsible for the chemical reaction that turns strawberries red. Compounds from the same family make blueberries blue and grapes purple.

When picking out a strawberry soap, be sure to look closely at the label. Most drug store variety strawberry soaps actually do not contain strawberries, but only strawberry fragrance (which is often not even natural strawberry fragrance, by a synthetic chemical that may actually have health risks). Most manufactured soaps that contain natural strawberries are hot processes, which removes many of the beneficial properties of strawberries by heating the soap to high temperatures. Others contain high levels of synthetic preservatives. The benefit for big manufacturers is that their strawberry soap lasts much longer on the shelf. Unfortunately, that means that the consumer-you!-don’t get all the natural benefits of washing with strawberries in your soap.

One of the best qualities of cold process natural soap is that the compounds …

Dangers Of Metabolism Boosters And Energy Drinks

The main purpose of metabolism boosting substances is to assist body when exercising. They are there to accelerate calorie burning process. There is a common misperception that metabolism boosters can replace the role of physical activity in losing weight. Fault for this belief lies partly by online diet marketers. Last 5 years are known as “diet spamming” period. Majority of e-mail owners were receiving at least 1 “lose weight – no exercise needed product” mail weekly in their inbox. Though it is true that those products will make body burn more calories even with no exercise, dangers of such doing overshadow by far those hardly measurable weight loss effects.

Untrained body of overweight people is simply not up to the increased heart rate and blood circulation that energy drink or metabolism booster can cause. Heart attack can be the consequence. Each body needs time to adapt on faster blood circulation. Any instant shock caused by metabolism boosting diet product is a health hazard. This is especially important for people who face weight issues and have one or another kind of medical condition related to: high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels or any kind of heart muscle disorder.

Overweight people, who have long neglected physical exercises, should avoid dietary products that promise weight loss with no effort needed. Those products are predominantly based on extracts of different citrus fruits, alcohol and in 90% of cases they will content caffeine. For individuals just starting with their weight loss program, other kinds of dietary supplements should be considered. Here it should be emphasized that there is an important difference between overweight and obese individuals. No obesity case should ever be addressed without proper medical guidance.

One should also never underestimate the power of drinking water. Water is an effective and gentle body stimulant, with no negative side effects. Metabolism boosters and energy drinks should find their place in fitness studios with people who are daily devoted to hard physical exercise.…

Healthy Food For Optimal Health

When I learned I had breast cancer, I decided that I needed to find out as much as I could about how my diet might impact my health. I absorbed everything I would get my hands on that discussed the importance of nutrition in regaining health and preventing a recurrence of cancer. Shortly after I learned I had cancer, I also found out that I am allergic to dairy and eggs. I needed to make changes to my lifestyle – fast.

The first thing to go was dairy. All of the years that I was consuming massive amounts of cheese was taking a toll on my health. Almost immediately upon giving it up, the majority of my migraine headaches disappeared. Another astonishing revelation was when, just as quickly, I no longer needed the Afrin nasal spray I had come to depend on to clear my sinuses for 35 years! I couldn’t leave the house without it. Now my need for it had disappeared. I had no idea that all of these issues were being caused by dairy.

Suddenly it was obvious, but for years I went along consuming dairy and suffering side effects without ever putting the two together. To improve my health on all counts, I realized that I needed to get back to basic, simple foods. No more processed junk foods, no more saturated fats, and no more refined white flours and sugars. So, along with dairy, I cut them out of my life. I now eat a mostly plant-based diet that is rich in nutrients and full of vitamins.

I buy organic when possible to avoid the pesticide and herbicide residues that are so prevalent in conventionally grown produce. I cook my meals from scratch. No more cans, packages or boxes (with a few exceptions). I now use my creativity and Google savvy to put together healthy meal ideas that work for my family. I noticed an immediate improvement to my health. I not only started to lose weight, and ultimately slowly and steadily lost 50 pounds, but I started to feel like my younger self again. More energetic, less achy, clearer skin.

I found that by merging elements from a vegan diet and a raw food lifestyle I could satisfy my family’s needs of eating healthy. The elements that I incorporated from the raw food diet is not only eating more vegetables in their raw state, but also eating foods that are “pure”. In other words, foods that are not processed or otherwise adulterated. They don’t contain chemicals or additives as they are mostly freshly made and consumed. However, it was not feasible to prepare only non-cooked foods 100% or the time. Although, I do try to eat at least 50% raw each day.

I needed to include hot healthy foods into my diet as well. In the northeast the winters are cold and it is just not possible for me to cut out all warm food. As far as veganism, I have eliminated all animal …

Korean Body Type Acupuncture – 8 Constitution Medicine

Eight Constitution Medicine is a completely new medical paradigm and has cured intractable and previously incurable diseases. It was first presented to the world in 1965 by Dowon Kuon, a world renowned acupuncturist that is currently treating cancer patients and conducting research at Jesun Acupuncture Clinic and Dawnting Cancer Research Institute in South Korea. His findings have stayed true after 47 years and 1 million plus clinical cases: all human beings regardless of gender or race can be classified into eight different human individualities or constitutions.

Each constitution has dynamic associations between internal organs. Some people are born with lungs that are strong but with a weaker liver. Others entered this world with weak lungs yet have strong functioning livers. Additional weak/strong pairs are: kidneys and pancreas, stomach and bladder, large intestine and gallbladder. Dr. Kuon refers to this state as ‘suitably unbalanced’. Maintaining this state optimizes the immune function of the human body. So when a person’s strong internal organ becomes overly strong or a weak one deteriorates, his body can succumb to illness.

If this person sought treatment in Eight Constitution Medicine for his illness, the state of their internal organs at birth would dictate their treatment. It would be completely personalized from someone else who may have the same illness because their constitutions would be totally different. By identifying the weaker internal organs at birth, it is also that much easier to understand the cause of an illness.

The idea is currently gaining ground of focusing on the cause of a disease rather than just treating the symptoms. While Oriental Medicine has operated under such theories for thousands of years, Eight Constitution Medicine elegantly connects the physiology and pathology of each constitution and its twelve internal organs (Liver, Lungs, Kidney, Large intestine, Small Intestine, Gallbladder, Stomach, Heart, Urinary Bladder, Pancreas, Pericardium, San Jiao). It is also complete in addressing what elements outside of the body such as the consumption of foods would optimize each constitution.

One easy to understand application of these findings is in the treatment high cholesterol. The typical one size fits all approach is reducing red meat consumption and increasing the intake of fruits and vegetables. However, over 90% of cholesterol is generated in the liver and so the impact of foods eaten is actually minimal. With Eight Constitution Medicine, the focus is in balancing the internal organ functions so that they are at optimal levels and performing appropriately for the body.…

Erection and Ejaculation Problems – Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment

Sexual health is an important aspect of overall human health. Sexual dysfunction in the male usually consists of erection and ejaculation problems. These may cause infertility, disturbed relations with the female partner, depression and poor self-esteem. The various erection and ejaculation problems, and their Ayurvedic herbal treatment are discussed here.

Erectile dysfunction, often referred to as “impotence”, is defined as the inability to achieve and/or maintain an erection that is suitable for penetration. Treatment for this condition is aimed at correcting the known cause. Sometimes, simple counseling and explanation of the normal anatomy and physiology of penile erection, may suffice. High cholesterol and obesity can be treated with traditional Ayurvedic formulations like Medohar Guggulu, Triphala Guggulu, Arogya Vardhini, Lashuna ( Allium sativum), Kutki (Picrorrhiza kurroa), Psyllium (Plantago ovata), and Guggulu (Commiphora mukul). High blood pressure may be treated with Sarpagandha (Rauwolfia serpentina), Jatamansi (Nardostachys jatamansi), Sutshekhar Ras, and Saariva (Hemidesmus indicus). Diabetes may be treated with medicines like Gudmar (Gymnema sylvestre) and Amalaki (Emblica officinalis).

Erectile dysfunction may also be due to physical causes like inadequate blood flow to the penis, venous leakage, neurological defects and hormonal problems. These conditions may be treated using medicines like Agnitundi Vati, Vishtinduk Vati, Tapyadi Loha, Trayodashang Guggulu, Abhrak Bhasma, Kapikachhu (Mucuna pruriens), Bala (Sida cordifolia), Patol (Tricosanthe dioica), Nimba (Azadirachta indica), Triphala (Three fruits), Draksha (Vitis vinifera), Musta (Cyperus rotundus) and Kutaj (Holharrhina antidysentrica).

Ejaculation problems consist of premature ejaculation, delayed ejaculation, retrograde ejaculation and anejaculation.

Premature ejaculation is the commonest male sexual dysfunction. It is defined as ejaculation before the person wishes it, often within one to two minutes after penetration, though it can occur before or on penetration. This condition is often associated with performance anxiety or psychological trauma. It can be treated using medicines like Jayphal (Myristica fragrans), Talimkhana (Asteracantha longifolia), Parsik Yavani (Hyoscyamus niger), Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri), Jatamansi, and Shankhpushpi (Convolvulus pluricaulis).

Delayed ejaculation can be a natural consequence of ageing in men, or may result from diabetes or the use of medicines like anti-depressants. Medicines useful in this condition are: Shilajit (Purified Bitumen), Makardhwaja, Rasa Sindur, Keshar (Crocus sativus), Shweta Musli (Asparagus adscendens), Kapikacchu and Talimkhana.

Retrograde ejaculation is a condition caused by an incompetent bladder sphincter, in which the semen goes backwards into the bladder instead of coming out of the penis. This could be caused by prostate surgery, a spinal injury, diabetes, high blood pressure medication and congenital problems. This condition may be treated using medicines like Vishtinduk Vati, Tapyadi Loha, Trayodashang Guggulu, Patol, Nimba, Triphala, Draksha, Musta, Kutaj, Laxa (Biopurified Wax) and Bel (Aegle marmelos).

These medicines may also be used to treat anejaculation, in which a man is unable to ejaculate. This condition is comparatively rare, and may be wrongly diagnosed as azoospermia.

Androgen deficiency may cause a reduction in Testosterone levels, resulting in reduced libido and erection problems. The natural ageing process is also responsible for reduced libido along with other general symptoms like tiredness, irritability, osteoporosis and reduced muscle mass. All these …

The 8 Basic Punches Of Western Boxing

The sport of western boxing has had a lot of fans since the early days of the late 19th century in America. Even when organized public fighting matches were still considered a crime punishable by time in jail and a fine they drew a horde of spectators. But then again, who doesn’t love a good fight?

Fighting way back then looked a whole lot different than fighting currently does. Over the years more science and research has been done, into human movement and fitness. The upright postures with hands held low that make early boxing easy to identify have been changed over the years.

In the 21st century, fighters appear more fluid, more aggressive, and in a crouched stance. Legs bent, body weight forward on toes. Unlike the fighters of yesteryear, today, a fighter today uses his hands as well as shoulders to obscure and protect that path that leads right to the “kisser”, or “button”.

The fighters main weapons continue to be his hands, while they also use a lot of holding, pushing, and leaning on strategies to wear down their opponent. With those weapons, there is generally an arsenal of 8 specific punches that a good fighter will develop. From these eight punches there is an incredible array of “combinations” that can be thrown as he tries to get past the defenses of the opponent in the opposite corner.

This list is a brief description of those 8 punches of boxing:

  1. “The Jab”. This punch is thrown from the lead hand. It’s quick, sometimes powerful and is used either to “keep your opponent off of you”, or to judge his distance while setting up a power punch.
  2. “The Cross”. This punch is from the rear hand and is a straight power punch. Usually used as a counter when your opponent throws a punch from the opposite side.
  3. “The Hook To The Jaw”. This punch comes from the lead hand from the side while keeping your elbow bent. The object is to come around the defense and connect with the side of the opponents face. The hook carries a lot of knock out power.
  4. “Rear Hand Hook”. Similar to the previous, because this punch comes from the rear, it’s generally used as a counter punch when your opponent has “left himself open”. The target could be the head as well as the body.
  5. “Lead Hook To the Body”. Again, from the lead hand “hooking” into the body. The target is mostly the ribs or kidney. This particular punch is so devastating that it, when landing successfully, has ended many, many fights with opponent still conscious.
  6. “The Overhand Punch”. This punch is a power punch also. It comes from the rear hand. It’s similar to the cross, however, it has a slight arcing motion to it. The purpose of this punch is go over the opponents targeting the face of the opponent. Imagine a baseball pitcher’s form and you’ll have the basic concept.
  7. “Lead Hand Uppercut”. The uppercut is used

TMJ and Voice – How Jaw Problems Can Affect Vocal Ability

Your jaw movement, or lack of movement, has a significant and important effect on your voice. TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder) is not just a jaw issue…it’s a vocal problem.

  • First of all, the stiff jaw which accompanies TMJ will keep the soft palate from lifting. Try gritting your teeth while simultaneously attempting to lift the soft palate in a yawn-like sensation. Quite difficult, isn’t it?
  • A stiff jaw will inhibit the full opening of vowels, causing a tight throat instead of an open one to constrict singing.
  • Lack of mobility in the jaw will also cause a singer or speaker to form words and syllables too far back in the mouth, muffling communication and tightening the throat. This is because a tight jaw will cause the base of the tongue to contract, bunch up and pull up on the top of the larynx during articulation.
  • A jaw with TMJ can cause a singer to stop truly listening and being able to aim at pitch, especially if there is a ringing in the ears (tinnitus) to conflict with the tones a singer wants to accurately hit. To deal with this, you obviously need to address TMJ solutions, but it’s also important to get back to some pitch practice with a trusted coach.

When I was a staff-singer at a jingle company in Memphis, I once had a terrible bout with TMJ. It was so bad I had to open my mouth before they turned the mic on so my jaw wouldn’t cause a clicking sound! In my case, it was caused mostly by a new tooth filling -too high- which caused me to grind my teeth to try and close my bite. It was cured by 1. the dentist filing the filling down for a better fit, 2. using a mouth guard to stop my night-time grinding and 3. a short-term course of prescription muscle relaxer to relax my jaw. Whew!

Not all causes of TMJ are known. With singers it’s often a case of “which came first, the chicken or the egg?” Tight jaw contributes to tight throat. Tight throat will cause a tight jaw which is trying (tensing) desperately to articulate. When the cause is investigated, it is my experience that much can be done to alleviate the symptoms of TMJ and allow the voice to find freedom again.
