Drink Water on an Empty Stomach

DRINK WATER ON AN EMPTY STOMACH

I don’t do this to often, I never typically read forwards let alone find one that I actually find inspirational but I couldn’t help but share this information. I have shared before about how much I love the power of water so you could understand why I would share this information with you today.

It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven its value. For old and serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the following diseases:

Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy, excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat diseases.

METHOD OF TREATMENT

  1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml glasses of water
  2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute
  3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal.
  4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink anything for 2 hours
  5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it to 4 glasses per day.
  6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others can enjoy a healthy life.

The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to cure/control/ reduce main diseases:

  1. High Blood Pressure (30 days)
  2. Gastric (10 days)
  3. Diabetes (30 days)
  4. Constipation (10 days)
  5. Cancer (180 days)
  6. TB (90 days)
  7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards – daily.

This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of treatment you may have to urinate a few times. It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work in our life. Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active. This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals …not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain…

For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you. It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow down the digestion. Once this “sludge” reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food.. It will line the intestine. Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink hot soup or warm water after a meal.

A serious note about heart attacks: · Women should know that not every heart attack symptom is going to be the left arm hurting. Be aware of intense pain in the jaw line. You may never have the first chest pain during the course of a heart attack. Nausea and intense sweating are also common symptoms. 60% of people who have a heart attack while they are asleep do not wake up. Pain in the jaw can wake you from a sound sleep.. Let’s be careful and be aware.. The more we know, the better chance we could survive…

Stay Here Mama

You have had a long day at work. You are coming home and still need to cook dinner and do some light house work. You are excited because you have a new creative meal planned for dinner and for once you are enthused about completing a project around the house that you have been looking at for weeks. You are almost home but first you have to pick up your child from day care.

You get home get your shoes off, maybe have the chance to change your clothes before … it happens.

Screaming down the hall way comes crawling your little one. Somewhere between the the car and the front door your child discovered that they need their mother right now. It has suddenly become unacceptable for you to do anything but hold, play with, talk to or breastfeed your child.

That has been my story every day this week. I hear stories from the childcare workers that he is a perfect little angel, hardly ever crying . However, once he sees mommy it is a totally different story. If I am any where in the room with him and he sees me, all attention must be on him and I am not permitted to do any work.

I feel bad because even when daddy comes home it is still all about mommy. He will play and laugh with his father but I still have to be in the room. Once I try to exit, even to the kitchen where he can still see me, I am in trouble. I have been forced on occasion or two to just allow him to cry for a few minutes while I do what I have to do. I hate it but he must eventually learn that I still love him and I am not neglecting him.

I do hope this stage doesn’t last too long. I so love my time with him and want to make him happy … I don’t have to clean everyday … but there has to be a compromise … Right?

Am I being a mean mother by not constantly holding and playing with him?

Baby Summer Reading

I absolutely love to read. My husband is always getting on my case about how many books I have. And no matter how much he says it, I always feel that I just don’t have enough. Story telling I feel has been and will always be the number one form of entertainment. I get the same thrill from reading a book that I do from watching a movie. You just can’t beat the the feeling of relaxing on a Saturday afternoon with a good book sitting in the shade somewhere with a tall glass of ice tea … in fact, I am going there this afternoon.

Well you can only imagine the collection of books that I have already started for my son, and I haven’t even scrapped the surface of the books I would like to get for him. I have collection after collection and countless different series in mind that I can’t wait to get my hands on and share with him.

I feel that taking time out to read to your children is vital to a their social and mental development. You will find that they not only learn how to read earlier, but they will learn how to enjoy it and look forward to finding and reading more books.

For this summer I am a mission to engage my son and have good story time fun each week. While he is still young and may not fully understand what the stories are about, I feel getting him used to the practice now and understand that the pictures and words in the books mean something is extremely important. Starting off this young can only make future summers more exciting and enjoyable for the whole family.

What summer reading plans to you have with your family this year? As a part of the TwitterMoms community I have the privileged of sharing this information with you regarding their latest blog post contest “How do we get our children to embrace summer reading.”

A Mother's Heritage: Inspiring People

After I had my son in September my sister-in-law gave me a gift. She gave me a journal titled A Mother’s Heritage, A Loving Keepsake For Your Children by Ellie Claire. This is different from your every day journal in that instead of an empty canvas for you to free write, it has the topics and questions laid out for you. I like it because it prompts you to share insight to who you are that you may have never shown otherwise. Most of these questions are dealing with topics that, unless my children actually asked, I don’t think I would have jumped up and shared. Instead of writing them in the book, I decided it would be easier to do a blog post for each.

Children who mature into stable young adults almost always have had a caring adult figure who has been a positive model in their life. – Doug Fields

This week’s journal question was … A love one who inspired me … My heroes are …

Growing up loved ones who inspired me were both of my grandmothers. I was always admiring how they both worked so hard for their families and always seemed to be able to provide everything for everyone who was in need. It encourages me to think of how resourceful they were. They both came from a place and time when it was common place to make your own clothes, grow your own food and create your own forms of entertainment which didn’t involve a computer or television.

My heroes are … I had to think about this one for a while because I can’t recall having any heroes growing up. Not that I didn’t have any, or that there were any influential people in my life because there were many. I just can’t remember any right now. How today I have many heroes, mostly the strong ministry leaders and pastors in my church.

I am Better Today Because …

My friends over at TwitterMom’s always have some fun contests and inspire all sort of different blog post ides. Today’s inspiration comes from one of their latest contests Celebrate the Things in Your Life that Are Better Than Ever. They teamed up with Dove gofresh and they are offering some great prizes to participants. You should also check out Dove’s photo contest on Facebook where you can submit a “before” photo and a “now” photo in one of the four categories (play, love, life and style) and tell them how your life is better than ever for your chance to win a spa weekend getaway, cash prizes and more!

As for me, today my life is better than ever because of my relationship with Christ Jesus! Growing up I had always attended church and participated in different activities with the church so Christ has always been in my life. But it wasn’t until I got married and moved to Maryland that I really started to have a relationship with Christ. Since then all aspects of my life have changed. I have been blessed beyond measure in my career, finances, family, health and marriage. God’s presences in my life truly makes a difference and I know I am a better person today because of it.

Sam´s Club Pillsbury Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies

For the Independence Day holiday this year my husband and I welcomed his family and some friends over for dinner and movies. It was an awesome time hanging out and just relaxing at home.

Well mostly relaxing. We did spend a bit of time preparing the food. My husband was the grill master as always preparing some Bar B Que Chicken, Roasted Corn and of course Hamburgers. I was in the kitchen making some mean mashed potatoes, pork and beans and brownies.

Okay so I admit it, I didn’t actually bake brownies. Curiosity of My Blog Spark and Pillsbury I was provided with a gift pack and a gift card to Sam’s Club and was able to pick up a great holiday dessert for the family. With a taste as delicious and authentic as if you baked them at home, Pillsbury Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies are a blend of 3 types of cocoas with real chocolate syrup and milk chocolate chunks to make a delicious fudge brownie—they’re the perfect solution when you’re pressed for time like I was.

Along with my coupon for the brownie tray I also received a cake decorating kit to add personal flair to my brownies. While that process didn’t turn out as smoothly as I had hoped, it was fun trying.

Well everyone loves brownies but not everyone loves to bake so if you would like to win a brownie pack of your own we will provide you with a Pillsbury Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies gift pack that includes $25 Sam’s Club gift card to use to purchase the brownies, frosting, and a large container for transporting the brownies.

Each package of Pillsbury Chocolate Chunk Fudge Brownies has 6 Bonus Box Tops that can be redeemed to earn cash for the K-8 school of your choice.
