Allergic to modern life ?

Posted on June 27, 2009. Filed under: Health | Tags: , , , , |

Can you imagine yourself living in a world where there are no mobile phones, microwave ovens, radios, televisions and WiFi-enabled computers or laptops?

It is like going back to the dark ages. No one would like to go back in time unless they are forced to. Life would be more cheaper, simpler and healthier and less stressful.

Some day , who knows, we may have to go back to the stone age when this world ends and a new world begins.

People living near those telecommunication towers have complained about the effects of those electromagnetic impulses emitted from those towers .

There are people who says that there are no scientific evidence that those waves of electrical energies are harmful to human beings but I am inclined to believes that those people living within the vicinity of those towers may have their health affected in the long run.

There are those who believed that it can cause harm to the health of those people in the long run. Some people are always sick or unhealthy and they cannot pinpoint the cause of their sickness.

It may not affect everyone but it does cause some difficulties to those people who are allergic to those electromagnetic impulses.

Some people may have their health affected like this lady ,former TV producer, Sarah Dacre, 53. She was finally diagnosed with electro-hypersensitivity.

She suffered from numbness down the right side of her body and bad digestion,high blood pressure , ,attacks ,breathlessness,blurred vision, heart arythmia, thyroid problems, vertigo, tinnitus, and chronic fatigue.

Electromagnetic impulses could cause those harmful effects on the human body, and the symptoms is called electro-hypersensitivity, or EHS.

She had to clear her bedroom of the phone, TV, computer and electrical wires of any kind, and lined it with foil wallpaper.

She could not be near, or be in public buildings such as airports, railway stations, museums or restaurants; travel on the Tube, or drive on a motorway without triggering symptoms of EHS.

When finally diagnosed with electro-hypersensitivity, her illness forced her to leave both her job and her home.

She is allergic to modern technology and now stays in the rural area without all those electronic gadgets.

When she found out the cause of her sickness, she avoided those places and equipments and almost immediately, she began to feel better, to have more energy, and to sleep and eat better.

Are you allergic to modern living ?

Working mothers count their blessings

Posted on June 25, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

Everyone should count their blessings. Whether you are a full time housewife or a working mother , you should count your blessings and thanks God for those blessings.What you have and enjoy , others are not so fortunate and have not.

In this present world, being a full time housewife is a luxury only the rich can afford.

For the millions of ordinary women, they will have to work to put food on the table and to help their husbands to pay off those bills or send their kids to college.

One income is not enough to sustain a family unless you want to live in the rural areas or in the jungle and plant your own food and live a very simple and Spartan life.

There was a case of a Russian billionaire who gave up all his billions and went to live in the wild with his family.

The house had no electricity and no modern amenities. They felt more happy this way. His money brought him many problems.

People wanted to kill him or kidnap his wife and children because of his money.He had a large contingent of bodyguards and followed him where ever he goes. There was always danger to him and death lurks in every corner.

He got tired of this kind of life and gave up all his money and chose a simple life away from civilization.

Working mothers are thankful to others for making them able to hold a job.They are thankful to the baby sitters ,care minders or their parents,the teachers, neighbours and many others .

Every woman has the prerogative to choose their path. Whether they want to be a full time mother or a working mother. Each will have to make a sacrifice and trade off.

Working mothers should look at the positive side. There are so many things to be thankful about .

They get to have time alone .They get to have interactions with other adults. They earn a paycheck and have financial independence .They have an identity other than just a ‘mom.’

They set an example for their children to follow and the children can become more independent and self reliance.

Still has any regrets about being a working mom ? Time to move forward and don’t look back.

Children as young as three need sunglasses .

Posted on June 23, 2009. Filed under: Health | Tags: , , |

Do your kids as young as three need sunglasses ?

It is not for aesthetic reasons but for the protection of their fragile eyes.
It maybe a problem forcing them to wear those sunglasses but if the parents are wearing one ,it will be easier to persuade them to wear it too. Children like to ape what their parents are doing.

According to some experts, they should wear sunglasses to protect their eyes from the strong sunlight.Over-exposure to UV rays has also been linked to blurred vision and even blindness.

Keep your child from long exposure to strong or bright sunlight . Do not allow them to be exposed for too long , excessive exposure to sunlight can potentially damage their eyes .

To protect their eyes, children as young as three should be wearing sunglasses when playing outside in bright weather.

Toddlers are especially vulnerable to the sun’s rays, as their lenses are more transparent than an adult’s, allowing more short-wavelength light to reach the retina. and can cause vision disorders.

Parents should buy a good pair of sunglasses with the necessary protection. Buying a cheap one may
well increase the risks of sun damage to their children’s eyes.

Children being young may not know how to take care of those sunglasses and they can easily be lost ,manhandled and broken. Getting them an expensive one is out of question. Perhaps a reasonable and affordable one will suffice.

Do women need sexy lingerie?

Posted on June 21, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , |

Do you think those sexy lingerie is not right for you because you don’t have the right body shape ?

Think you are too fat,too old,too ugly, not beautiful enough and not sexy enough to adorn them ?

Excuses! Excuses! Most girls would give flimsy excuses why they don’t go for those sexy lingerie. Some think it is too slutty to wear them .

They don’t have those bodies like those models.They think that only those models are most suited to wear them .They feel that they are not sexy enough .

It can be a very expensive affair.Sometimes it is not about how much you spend but how you feel.

When you buy something you like or want , it will make you feel good.It need not be the most expensive type.

It is just an underwear and and you don’t have to spend a bomb on it because nobody will see them except yourself. Why waste those money?

Lisa Cole’s book, “Lingerie: The Foundation of a Woman’s Life” , is filled with real stories about real women who saw their lives change as a result of picking out the perfect undergarments.

The sensual touch of those silk and lace against your skin will give you a hint of luxury and glamour all day long and you will gain a new appreciation of yourselves.

Feeling good is a result of looking good. When you are looking good , you will automatically feel good and if you wear those sexy lingerie, you will feel more feminine and seductive .

Others may not be able to see it but you will feel the sensual touch of those lingerie

You will gain the confidence and boost your self esteem and will be able to project it outwardly.

Regardless of your body type, those intimate undergarments would help you project a confident body image.

Imagine yourself wearing those granny panties or those faded or with holes panties,you would not feel sexy at all and would turn off your man.

One look at them is enough to turn off his sex drive. His high drive would veer or careen off the mountain slope.

You would have to take them off in the dark when you are in the mood…LOL!

If you need to feel more feminine , seductive and sexy , you will need to have some sexy lingerie to perk up your confident and have the ‘feel good factor.’

The men are attracted by visuals and presenting your best side would capture their fullest attention and they will not want to stray or wander away from you.

Would you marry a porn star ?

Posted on June 18, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , |

Just weeks before her wedding,Haylie Hocking, 27, only found out that her fiancee, Jason Brake made adult films and she has canceled the wedding.

She discovered his secret when her friends organized a hen party and wanted to hire a male stripper. She stumbled upon a movie clip and saw him in a porn movie.

If you were in that kind of situation , what would you do?

Would you rather come clean before your partner and confess all your dark secrets rather than let them discover by themselves and all hell breaks loose ?

If you want to be fair to him/her, you should come clean . It is better before the marriage than after the marriage.

Most people dare not come clean because they are scared of losing their partners. They love them too much and losing them because of some foolish things they did in the past is regrettable.

If it was in the past, it should be forgiven .After all ,there is nothing one can do to change the past and what has happened.

I guess it wasn’t his day and they were not meant for each other.

It can come as a rude shock if you discovered that your soon to be married partner has a sordid past.

Will your love be strong enough to weather the storm in your life ? Can you forgive him/her and pretend that nothing has happened ? Will you be able to accept him and live with the stigma and shame?

It is a hard choice and many people will not be able to grant forgiveness nor accept those tainted with unsavoury past.

If she had known his secret and are willing to have a relationship , it would be a different matter.

Some people can fall in love and marry hookers, gigolos and porn stars .

These people are able to accept them because they love them as a person and what they does , is not important to them.

Some may accept them only if they are retired and some may think of it as a job . obviously , not everyone thinks alike.

Have a baby before 35?

Posted on June 16, 2009. Filed under: Women Issues | Tags: , , , |

“New evidence from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists says it is increasingly difficult for women to become pregnant after the age of 35.”(dailymail.co.uk)

This isn’t exactly good news to many of those women who are 35 and still childless or unmarried.

It is an early warning to those who are near the age boundaries and that it pays to heed those warnings before it is too late. Don’t leave everything to chance or fate.

To be told that the chances of having your own babies after 35 is difficult is like taking apart of your life away.

This certain part of your life will never be fulfilled and you would not feel like a complete woman.

Many women left it too late and their lifelong dreams of becoming a mother to her pretty baby can only belong in the fantasy world. There is nothing more they can do anything about it unless they have plenty of money to burn by going for the IVF.

During her most fertile years, most women focus on her careers and social life and when they realized it is time to enjoy motherhood, they have gone by the expiry date.

By then ,it is not you who will decide if you want motherhood but mother nature.

If women does not want to miss the boat, they should have babies before 35 or they will risk missing out on motherhood.

The best age to have babies is from 20 to 35 and the younger the better. Older mothers may face infertility problems , higher risk of miscarriage and birth complications.Older mothers may also suffer from diabetes and preeclampsia,which can lead to blood clots and serious complications, or even death.

There is also the higher risk of deformities to the babies and other defects like Downs Syndrome .

Some women may go for IVF treatments which is very expensive .
Fertility treatment has a success rate of 31 per cent for women up to the mid-30s but drops to a mere 5 per cent for those 42 and over.

Recently a 66 year’s old woman ,Elizabeth Adeney became a mother through IVF.(http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1182919/A-baby-66-desperate-divorcee-set-Britains-oldest-mother.html).She gave birth to a 5lbs 3 oz boy and both are doing fine.

She was desperate for a child. She is a wealthy business women and could afford the IVF process. For those who could not afford it , they would have to resign to their fates.

Due to the technological advance in science, women can have pregnancies even when they do not produce any eggs.

The fertilized donor egg is impregnated into her womb by the IVF method. If it is not possible, the fertilized eggs can be impregnated into a surrogate mum.

The oldest woman in the world to give birth was 70-year-old Omkari Panwar from India, who had a twin boy and girl last year.

There are moral and ethical considerations of having a baby so late in life.It is her decision and we should not judge her. It is something which she yearns for and she got it.

I believed everything happens because God wills it to happen. In her case , she is blessed with a young life .

Some women can be under the impressions that they can have babies even after their 40’s.
We have read about those aging celebrities who are over 40’s ,like Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry and Madonna having children , But what was not reported was that they used a donor egg, or donor sperm (their husbands could be infertile)

You will have to decide if you want your own children or your career. Would you prefer material success or motherhood?

Which will give you more satisfaction and fulfillment as a woman ?

Want to join a nudist colony?

Posted on June 15, 2009. Filed under: Social Issues |

“You come into this world with nothing and you will leave this world the same way.”

You cannot take anything with you , not even the clothes on your back.

Why do people want to be nudist?

These people want to experience the beauty of nature and feel relaxed. They want to feel close to nature and being born free like those wild animals.

It is a way of life and in some nudist colony they have spas, nature trails, indoor activities and other features.

Most of those nudist are middle age and it is difficult to find the young members.

Joining a nudist colony is not for everyone.You would need to have the right frame of mind and be not bound by your bias and prejudices.

If you are the religious type, it will be out of question.It will be easier to join a group than to start one on your one.

There are nudist colonies or camps in some developed countries like Germany, Sweden and Belgium. There are many beaches in the world which allows nudity.

You may not join a nudist camp but for some people they may prance around the house totally naked and without a stitch of clothing on them.That is as far as they can go,feeling like a nudist .

Most of us will not be able to go totally naked because we do not live alone .

There are many misconceptions about nudist and what they do .When you think of a nudist camp, you would probably think of a sex orgy and everyone having sex with anyone they meet. It would be like a free for all .This is stereotype thinking and our imaginations can run riot.

Furthermore, you would think that there would be hard bodies or gorgeous nymphs strutting around their stuffs. If you are thinking along these lines, you can probably forget about joining a nudist colony.

Nothing is more from the truth. You would most probably witness,average-looking guys and gals, saddle bags, love handles, cellulite and other droopy parts. …LOL!

In truth, it is just like any normal society except that they are able to accept their nakedness in front of each other.

Initially they may have some excitements or curiosities but in time , everything will become normal to them.

Being naked is not without it disadvantages as our bodies are exposed and unprotected from infections or creepy crawlies .

It can be an experience to join a nudist colony and I wonder what the experience would be like? Would it be gross?

Dare to bare all!!

Drink breast milk to boost immune system to fight cancer ?

Posted on June 13, 2009. Filed under: News | Tags: , |

Her father has colon and liver cancer.After watching a TV documentary about the health benefits of breast milk, she decided to share her breast milk with her father and son and in the hope that her father would get cured.

Georgia Browne, 27, expresses her milk after feeding her own baby son – and delivers it from Bristol to her parents’ home in Wiltshire.

Her daughter researched from the internet and read that a man swore that his tumour was reduced from drinking breast milk from a milk bank in the USA.

After sharing her milk with his grandson for a month , scans has shown that his cancer had improved.

U.S. researchers claims that breast milk can cure cancer in children . I don’t know if it is true or not but there is no harm trying .

Science may not have discovered a cure for cancer yet. There are many new discoveries about the cure for cancer but many of them are yet proven to be effective and many people are still dying of that disease.

There are all kinds of claims for cancer cure and it is difficult to believe if they are true.

Some cancer patients would spent a huge amount of money to find the cure and there are unscrupulous people who would take advantage of them by recommending green tea or natural herbs at exorbitant prices.

The body’s immune system plays a significant role in the battle against cancer.

Breast milk contains many benefits.
These benefits include; lowered risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), increased intelligence, decreased likelihood of contracting middle ear infections, cold, and flu bugs, decreased risk of some cancers such as childhood leukemia, lower risk of childhood onset diabetes, decreased risk of asthma and eczema, decreased dental problems, and decreased risk of obesity later in life, decreased risk of developing psychological disorders .

Breastfeeding also provides health benefits for the mother. It assist the uterus to return to its pre-pregnancy size and reduces post-partum bleeding as well as assisting the mother to return to her pre-pregnancy weight.Breastfeeding also reduces the risk of breast cancer later in life.

I wish them all the best of luck and pray to God for his recovery .

Woman beggar with RM1,800 cash hidden in her bra and panties.

Posted on June 10, 2009. Filed under: News | Tags: , |

Not all beggars are poor. There are rich beggars and not so rich beggars.Some people would rather be beggars than work because it can pay well if you are in the right place.

All you have to do is to make yourself pitiful, swallow your pride and dressed in rags and there will be many people who will take pity on you and give you alms.

The takings per day can be substantial and they may even earn more than a graduate.

You won’t die from hunger because you can go into some restaurants and finished off those foods which are left behind.

The food stall owners may even give you free food to keep you away from their place.

This particular woman beggar when caught by the state Immigration Department officers ,was found with Rm1,800.00 stashed inside her bra and panties.

It is believed that she made that much in one week’s work! That is sure a lot of money in these bad times.

We hear many stories of beggars with lots of cash on their bodies and some even have large bank accounts. Some keep their money buried under the ground because they were afraid of being robbed.

There are syndicates which kidnapped young children and teach them to beg on the streets in those big towns.

There are even stories about young girls being kidnapped and had their limbs chopped off and placed in strategic places to beg. I do not know if it is true or not. It is certainly very scary and terrible to commit such a crime. To those evil perpetrators , the end justifies the means.

The next time you want to give those beggars any money, you will have to think twice. It is better to donate your money to those charity organizations which can really help those who are poor and the handicapped.
