The Journey of Life

Some word of wisdom:

A long time ago, there was an Emperor who told his horseman that if he could ride on his horse and cover as much land area as he likes, then the Emperor would give him the area of land he has covered.

Sure enough, the horseman quickly jumped onto his horse and rode as fast as possible to cover as much land area as he could. He kept on riding and riding, whipping the horse to go as fast as possible. When he was hungry or tired, he did not stop because he wanted to cover as much area as possible.

Came to a point when he had covered a substantial area and he was exhausted and was dying. Then he asked himself, "Why did I push myself so hard to cover so much land area? Now I am dying and I only need a very small area to bury myself."

The above story is similar with the journey of our Life. We push very hard everyday to make more money, to gain power and recognition. We neglect our health, time with our family and to appreciate the surrounding beauty and the hobbies we love.

One day when we look back, we will realize that we don't really need that much, but then we cannot turn back time for what we have missed.

Life is not about making money, acquiring power or recognition . Life is definitely not about work! Work is only necessary to keep us living so as to enjoy the beauty and pleasures of life. Life is a balance of Work and Play, Family and Personal time. You have to decide how you want to balance your Life. Define your priorities, realize what you are able to compromise but always let some of your decisions be based on your instincts. Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of Life, the whole aim of human existence.

So, take it easy, do what you want to do and appreciate nature. Life is fragile, Life is short. Do not take Life for granted. Live a balanced lifestyle and enjoy Life!

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny

God's Amazing Pharmacy

(We received this article via an e-mail.)

It's been said that God first separated the salt water from the fresh, made dry land, planted a garden, and made animals and fish, long before making man.
To ensure healthful living, God left us some clues as to which foods we should eat to keep specific parts of our body healthy!
We call this God's Amazing Pharmacy..

A sliced carrot looks like the human eye. The pupil, iris and radiating lines look just like the human eye. And yes, science now confirms that carrots greatly enhance blood flow to our eyes.

The tomato has four chambers and is red. The heart has four chambers and is red. Research shows that tomatoes are loaded with lycopine, a wonderful heart and blood food.

Grapes hang in a cluster resembling the shape of the heart. An individual grape looks like a blood cell and research today shows that grapes are a wonderful heart and blood vitalizing food.

A walnut looks like a little brain, with left and right hemispheres, upper cerebrums and lower cerebellums. Even the wrinkles or folds on a walnut are like the neo-cortex. We now know that walnuts help develop more than three (3) dozen neuron-transmitters for brain function.

Kidney beans help heal and maintain kidney function and, yes, they look exactly like the human kidneys.

Celery, bok choy, and rhubarb look like bones. These foods target bone strength. Bones are 23% sodium and these foods are 23% sodium. If you don't have enough sodium in your diet, the body pulls it from the bones, making them weak. These foods replenish the skeletal needs of the body.

Avocados, eggplant and pears target the health and function of the womb and cervix of the female, and they look just like these organs. Research today shows that when a woman eats one avocado a week, it balances her hormones, helps shed unwanted birth weight, and helps prevent cervical cancers. How profound is this? It takes nine (9) months to grow an avocado from blossom to ripened fruit. There are over 14,000 photolytic chemical constituents of nutrition in each one of these foods (modern science has only studied and named about 141 of them).
現在的研究證明,如果一個女人每週能吃一個酪梨,就可以 調節荷爾蒙、甩掉贅肉,並且預防宮頸癌。那麼這當中究竟多少奧妙?一個酪梨從開花到瓜熟蒂落需要整整九個月的時間。它們都含有超過14,000多種以上的化學營養物質(現代科學只對其中的141種做過研究並命名)。

Figs are full of seeds and hang in twos when they grow. Figs increase the mobility of male sperm and increase the numbers of Sperm as well to overcome male sterility.
無花果裏面長滿了子並且是 兩兩 掛在一起生長。無花果可以促進男性精子的流動,並能增加精子數量,同時還能治癒男性不育。

Sweet potatoes look like the pancreas and actually balance the glycemic index of diabetics.

Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries

Oranges, grapefruits, and other citrus fruits look like the mammary glands of the female and actually assist the health of the breasts and the movement of lymph in and out of the breasts.

Onions look like the body's cells. Today's research shows onions help clear waste materials from all of the body cells. They even produce tears which wash the epithelial layers of the eyes. A working companion, garlic, also helps eliminate waste materials and dangerous free radicals from the body.

Could hot cocoa be the next "wonder drug" for high blood pressure?

(We received this article via an e-mail.)

Harvard researchers praise stunningly simple discovery!

According to recent estimates, nearly 1-in-3 American adults has high blood pressure. But for the Kuna Indians living on a group of islands off the Caribbean coast of Panama, hypertension doesn't even exist. In fact, after age 60, the average blood pressure for Kuna Indian islanders is a perfect 110/70.

Is it because they eat less salt? No. Kuna Indians eat as much, if not more salt, than people in the U.S.
Is it due to their genes? No. Kuna Indians who move away from the islands are just as likely to suffer from high blood pressure as anyone else!
So what makes these folks practically "immune" to hypertension -- and lets them enjoy much lower death rates from heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, and cancer?Harvard researchers were stunned to discover it's because they drink about 5 cups of cocoa each day. That's right, cocoa!
Studies show the flavonols in cocoa stimulate your body's production of nitric oxide -- boosting blood flow to your heart, brain, and other organs. In fact, one study found cocoa thins your blood just as well as low-dose aspirin!
But that's not all. A Harvard Medical School professor claims cocoa can also treat blocked arteries, congestive heart failure, stroke, dementia, even impotence!

Painless cholesterol cure
works in just 7 days -- and drives
the "food police" crazy!

Want to lower your cholesterol so fast it'll make your head spin? It's a breeze, just eat guacamole -- or any dish containing avocados!

Most health experts and nutritionists will tell you this rich, delicious Mexican dish is BANNED from any cholesterol-watcher's menu. But not Dr. Steven Pratt. That's because new research shows eating avocados can lower your cholesterol even faster than drugs... without the side effects!
One study found after just 7 days on a diet including avocados, LDL ("bad") cholesterol and triglyceride levels dropped by 22 percent. Meanwhile, HDL ("good") cholesterol shot up 11 percent -- something most cholesterol-lowering drugs won't do!

The cinnamon cure for high blood sugar

Sprinkle a little cinnamon on your toast, cereal, oatmeal, or sliced apples. It not only tastes good, it lowers your blood sugar!
In a recent study, people reduced their blood sugar levels by as much as 29 percent in just 40 days. That's with NO drugs, NO diet changes -- just plain old cinnamon!

The fat that blasts away cancer

You've been told cancer runs in families. You've been told what to eat and what NOT to eat -- including LESS fat.

Yet Dr. Steven Pratt says there's one fat you should eat MORE of. It's the monounsaturated fat called oleic acid, found in olive oil!
It should come as no surprise. After all, olive oil is a staple of the Mediterranean diet. And people in Spain and Greece are far less likely to develop cancer than in the U.S.
But what's really interesting is how olive oil not only prevents cancer, it blasts away cancer cells that already exist! So if you're even the slightest bit worried about cancer, this is one SuperFood you don't want to be without!

NEW prostate-protecting champ trumps tomatoes!

Unless you've been asleep under a rock for the past decade, you've heard the news about tomatoes. They contain a potent antioxidant called lycopene that's been proven to reduce the risk of certain cancers -- in particular, prostate cancer.

A famous Harvard study back in 1995 found that out of 48,000 men surveyed, those who ate 10 or more servings of tomatoes a week reduced their risk of prostate cancer by more than one-third. What's more, they lowered their risk of aggressive prostate tumors (the kind that are really tough to treat) by HALF!
But before you reach for that slice of pizza or bottle of ketchup, listen up. What if I told you about a sweet, refreshing food Dr. Steven Pratt recommends that's even better for your prostate than tomatoes?
This NEW prostate protecting champ is watermelon! Ounce for ounce, watermelon is even richer in lycopene than tomatoes. And since you probably eat more watermelon in one sitting than you do tomatoes, you don't have to gorge on it 10 times a week in order to slash your cancer risk! Just a few times a week should do it.

Knock out an ulcer with broccoli?!

About 25 million Americans will suffer from a peptic ulcer at some point in their lives. To get rid of their ulcers, most will take an antibiotic like amoxicillin.
Pretty tame stuff , right? Wrong! Amoxicillin can bring with it unwanted side effects like fever, nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, headache, even a yucky condition called "hairy tongue"!
And if you think that's bad, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the cost of treating an ulcer with antibiotics over an average 17-day period can run upward of $1,000!

Fortunately, there's one unconventional treatment with NO side effects Dr. Pratt swears by. "Eat broccoli!" he says. Why?
Broccoli contains a remarkably potent compound called sulforaphane, that kills off the H. pylori bacteria that cause most ulcers. Not only can it knock out an ulcer, eating one serving a day for a month might run you 20 bucks... a fraction of the cost of drugs!

(此文转载自求医不如求己 真心就是大智慧,谢谢。)










又有人问:“我的问题是小便不利,也喝不下多少水,身体湿气很大,但是胃口却很好,我是疏通膀胱经还是疏通胃经?”我说:“您需要打通胃经,您的问题从表面看似乎来源于膀胱经,但如果径直去打通膀胱经,会发现根本就使不上力,不但达不到利尿的效果,反而会让身体的湿气更多。因为您没有使用您的保护神 ——胃经。而打通胃经,看似与利尿去湿无关,但实际上却激发了您自身特有的原动力。”

Stroke Identification

(We received this article via an e-mail.)

Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the TongueSTROKE:Remember the 1st Three Letters....S.T.R.

My nurse friend sent this and encouraged me to post it and spread the word. I agree.

If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks. Seriously..

Please read:


During a BBQ, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) .she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening

Ingrid's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 pm Ingrid passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today. Some don't die. they end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this...

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.


Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR . Read and Learn!

Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.

Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:

S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently)
(i.e. It is sunny out today)

R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue.. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other, that is also an indication of a stroke.

為什麼提酸奶 (YOGURT)?

茉莉花茶沒有一點保健作用,只是香而已。第二請注意,綠茶裏含有氟。古代曹雪芹寫紅樓夢時說賈府的人吃完飯拿茶漱口,而蘇東坡也有記載,他每次吃完飯拿中下等茶漱口,目的是堅固牙齒。他不知道是氟的作用,日本人現在搞清楚了,它不僅能堅固牙齒,還能消滅蟲牙,消滅菌斑。飯後3分鐘,牙齒的菌斑就要出現。現在我們很多人牙齒不好,不但不拿茶水漱口,連白水都不漱,問題在哪里不知道。現在有人30歲就開始掉牙,50歲牙就全掉了。*如果牙齒好,你當然長壽啦。你拿茶水漱口就把菌斑消滅了,而且堅固牙齒。到了老年,你牙齒堅固,不得蟲牙。第三個,綠茶本身含茶甘甯,茶甘寧是提高血管韌性的,使血管不容易破裂。醫院每死4個人就有1個是腦出血。腦出血沒法治,就怕生氣! 綠茶第一抗癌,第二能堅固牙齒,第三腦血管不易破裂。

歐洲他們天天都喝一點紅葡萄紅葡萄的皮上有種東西,叫逆轉醇。它整個是抗衰老的,還是抗氧化劑,常喝紅葡萄酒的人不得心臟病。第二它可以幫助防止心臟的突然停搏,我們叫猝停。什麼情況下心臟可以停搏? 第一原來有心臟病的,第二有高血壓的,第三跟食物有關系。過大、過硬、過粘、過熱的食物可以使心臟停搏,撖蚾炙以使心臟停搏。有一個20歲的小夥子,他抽出來的血是泥狀的,非常危險。我們問他,他說吃得太好了。不是你吃得太好,而是吃得太不合理了。我們有個病例,一個人在街上買了個大年糕,又硬、又粘、又熱,跑回家一進門就讓老太太快點吃,別涼了,老太太剛吃幾口就咽氣了。他背著老太太往醫院跑,到醫院我們問他怎麼回事,他說剛給老太太年糕吃的。這不屬於無知是什麼!沒搶救過來。老太太在家呆得好好的,沒事吃什麼年糕呀?吃完年糕心臟停搏了。現在國際上一再強調,過大、過硬、過粘、過熱就會使心臟停搏。
