Pilates exercise as antidote for spinal diseases

Aches and pains in the human nervous systems defy conventional healing methods such as surgery, injection, use of pain killers, etc. The reasons are not far fetched. Tissues inside the spine are hidden in an intricate manner in and around the bones and are hardly reachable ordinarily. But thanks to the efforts of Joseph Pilates, the German born physical exercise exponent who discovered that a number of diseases can be cured by engaging in regimented physical exercises akin to what Yoga users do. He initially dubbed the healing process as contrology but later, practitioners preferred to directly retain his name on the method. Simply explained, the Pilate method involves doing physical exercise such as stretching and moving the limbs, head, and body in specific manners and angles through which the stiff body nerves are stretched and finally relaxed, thus bringing relief and healing to the affected parts. The exercises are to be done regularly, and with passing time, specific written methods have been developed for aspiring users.
A clear example of the Pilate efficacy is the ridding of the spine region at the back of excess fats stored in that region. It has been found that continued application of the exercise over time was able to remove accumulated fats in the spine region, no other form of therapy had been known to do this.
Without sounding sensational and highly philosophical on this feat, Joseph Pilate explained that he believed that all treatments begin from the mind, that first, for every healing attention of the mind must focus of the spot having pain, and that healing thoughts should then be directed to that spot. This is a modern concept of ‘Energy follows thought’. Following this pattern, several healings are being performed on areas of the body such as strengthening the abdomen, maintaining standing and posture, dissolving tumors, balancing, maintain steady flow of blood, general body relaxation, and many others. This Pilate system has found its way into modern alternative healing systems. The highlights can be summarized as concentration or focusing on the ailing point, directing flow of energy, and finally breathing on the spot. Breathing is essential to direct actual energy flow. Thus, what started as mere physical fitness exercise has now gained prominence as authentic alternative healing method without usage of any drugs. In our modern times with lingering uncertainties of fake drugs or abuse, an unorthodox but harmless therapy is worth trying. Many kudos to Joseph Pilates.

Eat and Grow Rich!

It may sound strange, but it is largely true that how well we fare, how sound our health is, to a significant degree depend on what we eat. Every human being today is faced with the challenge of living the good life, that good life can be defined in myriads of ways, but the conclusion will always rest on having sound health prequel to having all other ingredients of happiness. Food is a major factor in sustaining health, it is the feeder that energizes life by replenishing worn out body tissues. Hippocrates, traditionally regarded as the grand master of medicine once declared “Let food be thy medicine”. This saying remains relevant because we are what we eat. Anyone who is obese has to watch the diet. Skinny folks may be eating poor quality of foods. Skin diseases can be a result of poor nutrition. Several diseases have their foundation in poor food quality or poor feeding habits. The analysis could be endless.
Eating well implies feeding on food items that are beneficial to the body, and this boils down to having a balanced diet. Balanced diet ensures that planning and implementation of what to eat, how, and when are given priority. A balanced diet should contain the following items in the right proportion:
• Carbohydrates
- By far this is the commonest food item around the world. This is where we have corn, yam, cassava, guinea corn, some potato species
- Carbohydrates supply energy to the body.
• Proteins
- Proteins are body builders. They replace lost body tissues are responsible for replication of new body tissues. They are found in beans, fish, eggs
• Fats
- Fats give energy also, they are found in vegetable oils
• Salts
- For the body to grow strong teeth and bones, sufficient quantity of salts is required.
• Fibers
- Fibers aid in food digestion
• Fruits
Fruits are found in many places all year round. Many of the contain vitamins.
Vitamins constitute a unique class. They are the simple but indispensable ingredients found in different food items. A few of them are:
Vitamin A – sourced from spinach, mango, carrots, they enhance body growth and serve as oxidants which neutralize free radicals that damage body tissues.
Vitamin B can be gotten from grains, starch, cheese, etc, they supply energy to the body. Vitamin C comes mainly from fruits and vegetables
Vitamin D is a product of food and vegetables such as cod liver, egg yolk, salmon, cheese, and tuna. Sunlight also contains vitamin D. This family of vitamins support the growth of bones, they absorb calcium and phosphorous.
Having espoused varieties of food, attention now is when to eat. This is simple. Ideally one should eat when the urge comes, this depends one’s tendency to moderate the desire. The desire to eat too often should be controlled to reduce excess work load on the digestive system. For this reason nutritionists have suggested eating thrice daily for the average person, that is in the morning-breakfast, in the afternoon lunch, and in the evening supper or dinner. Food intake must be regulated, both in quantity and quality.
The good thing about food is that individuals can easily make good selection. Nutritionists suggest that human food should preferably consist of 80% alkali food, and 20% of acidic foods. However, for various reasons many people eat only to feed the stomach. Sound health is attainable only with balanced diet and good eating habits, thus the target of getting rich can be easily reached.

Curing Parkinson’s Disease with Pyramid Energy

The myth surrounding the incurability of the dreaded Parkinson’s disease is broken! Continuing modern research shows that energy generated by any precisely constructed pyramid heals numerous disease such as arthritis, insomnia, psoriasis, cancer, diabetes, and most importantly Parkinson’s disease. The first pyramids in the world were built in Egypt many centuries before the Christian era. The pyramids are ancient monuments whose legacy is bequeathed on modern civilization. The original belief has been that the pyramids were places for the burial of the Pharaohs of Egypt. However, modern research is revealing more of these pyramids. They were erected for purposes of research and knowledge, according to Egyptologists. Our concern here is not the historical facts but rather, we want to enrich our on-going quest to fathom many sources of healing without drugs, and precisely pyramid energy is devoid of any drug usage.
The basis of pyramid energy is based on metaphysics. All elements and molecules of any form of matter are held together by unseen innate forces, their physical positions are determined by natural forces of cohesion and adhesion. Solid geometrical objects such as prisms, cubes, etc are subject to this laws. Concerning the pyramid It is a solid structure held together without any weak points, for best results non-metallic materials are ideal for constructing the pyramid. Every pyramid has very precise dimensions, for example the base is always square, having four equal sides, each subtending the other at 90○ The pyramid has four sides, each side is a triangular panel inclined to the horizontal at a precise angle, all the four panels join together to form an apex. Directly and vertically down under the apex inside the pyramid, an enormous energy radiates. When somebody puts the palm directly under the apex, after a few minutes, a cooling sensation is felt, signifying downward flow of energy. This energy is capable of sharpening blunt razors, knives, clears murky water, stimulates relaxation and meditation, it can recharge electric batteries – liquid or dry, it can stimulate plant growth, it affects several forms of matter, but most importantly it can heal. Tourists and researchers on Egypt attest to the healing prowess of the pyramids, especially the pyramid at Gizeh, it is the largest of all the pyramids, with a towering height of 481 feet from apex to the ground. To get healed the patient stays under the pyramid directly under the apex for a varying number of hours, depending on the nature and severity of the disease. Parkinson’s disease can be cured within eight hours.
Pyramids that can heal human beings must be of high dimensions. Now, do you need pyramid healing? Relax! You don’t need to travel to Egypt to get the healing services. All that is necessary is to construct a pyramid with accurate dimensions. The joy of it all is that the pyramid size is scalable, following the law of similar triangles, a pyramid can be tiny, another can be much bigger, in fact pyramids built on similar angles to the great one at Gizeh but with varying sides have equal healing potency, that means only the angles of inclination to the horizontal needs to be PRECISE. You can select any dimension for the square base. Repeat, the angle of inclination of the side must be precise. Persons who are interested in pyramid construction can contact the experts.
Some physicians in the United States use the pyramid energy to complement treatment for their patients for convalescence after surgery or other serious therapies. The study of pyramid energy is still unfolding. A number of universities in the United States offer courses in Egyptology where mysteries of the pyramid and the fourth dimension are being investigated. Pyramid energy heals naturally, it complements every healing method, and very often it is a sufficient alternative to orthodox medicine.
