Want A Cuckold Sissy Husband? New Tips On Cuckolding Your Husband!

So, you want a cuckold sissy husband? Most women struggle and fail. What I will do is give you some very simple – yet fantastically powerful – steps to help in cuckolding your husband.

Oh boy do I ever!

A husband must, of course, WANT to be cuckolded. Brainwashing is a no-no (I know… such a shame!). So get his agreement.

Rules, rules… and, you guessed it, MORE rules

Next up, lay down the new rules of your relationship. Your relationship has transitioned. You need new rules to govern it.

Half the rules will relate to feminization aimed at creating a cuckold sissy husband. For instance he is no longer allowed sexual interactions with you (unless you give them as treats). He may also be required to ACT more feminine, to agree to everything you say, to abstain from masturbation, and to dress as a woman.

The other half of the rules relate to YOU. You will have boyfriends and men in your life (and women, if you swing that way!). You will not kiss your husband or do anything sexual. You will not do the dishes or clean the house. So on and so on.

Sexual release

You have got agreement from him and laid down the rules. To make cuckolding your husband EASIER you must stop his sexual release. So, no sexual fun or masturbation. This will put him in a near-constant state of sexual arousal. It makes it easier for him to live within the new rules you established.

Last – but CERTAINLY not least – the “bull” boyfriend

You have done everything right. All that remains is to get yourself a “bull” boyfriend. This can be a man who you have either an emotional or a physical relationship with – or both. Generally, he is more endowed than your new cuckold sissy husband. This final step in cuckolding your husband will cement your new relationship and TEST it. Because if, after meeting with your boyfriend, your husband is still happy, then you know that you have succeeded.

Cell Phone Conspiracy

It is now inconceivable that our world could function without the 5 billion cell phones used globally. The new book by Devra Davis "Disconnect" describes your attention. Indeed, if you use a cell phone a lot it should be mandatory reading.

It also seems inconceivable that the trillion dollar cell phone industry and governments worldwide could have pushed this technology without ever having solid research results providing the safety of these ubiquitous devices. If true that would be deadly frightening. But that is exactly the reality.

Is this a bizarre slip up or an intentional conspiracy between corporate and government interests? The more you learn the more you fear. Nightmarishly, cell phone technology has become too big to fail, no matter its deadly risks. Government will not protect you, so you have to protect yourself.

Let me note that I rarely use my cell phone. Very few people have my number and I rarely turn it on, except when I need to make a call. As a former professor of engineering I have always seen technology as offering risks, not just heavily commercialized benefits. The risks are often dismissed, poorly studied or just plain ignored.

And by now everyone should be worried that regardless government regulations nor corporate responsibility protect us very well from harmful foods, prescription drugs and manufactured products.

Facing the truth is often painful, but if you care about protecting your health and the health of people you love, then this is a book you definitely want to read and get others to read. Make no mistake, what you learn will upset you, but beyond getting angry at companies and the government for not adequately protecting against a man made public health disaster, you will be motivated to change your behavior. The subtitle sums up the theme: The Truth About Cell Phone Radiation, What the Industry Has Done to Hide It, and How to Protect Your Family.

Here are some of the eye-popping facts and insights I picked up from reading of this book.

Tests show young men who keep their phones in a pants pocket have reduced sperm counts.

Some scientists have, for decades, known about the adverse effects that radiofrequency causes in the brain. For example, radiofrequency allows chemicals and toxins from the blood, which are usually kept away from the nervous system, to enter the brain and cause disease.

The work of Dr. Lennart Hardell in Sweden should make cell phone users reconsiderer their practices. Swedes who have used cell phones the most and for the longest times have more malignant brain tumors than others. After a decade of use the risk of brain tumors is doubled. Similar results were found by scientists in Israel, Finland, Russia and England. Hardell has also found that teenagers using cell phones end up after a decade with four times more brain cancers.

The book highlights what the distinguished research scientist Dariusz Leszczynski said: "We clearly showed that radiation from a phone had a biological impact." After this work, which in fact repeated that of many others … the world could not longer pretend that the only Problems with cell phones occurred after you could measure a change in temperature. This view was always misconceived, of course, and our work showed that. " In other words, much lower power than in microwave ovens does not mean the absence of effects on our bodies.

Davis makes the inescapable point at the end of the book that "we need to invest in cell phones' safety as we do with other modern technologies." But it is not clear if that is proceeding as it should. Do you think industry and government will do the right thing and risk getting research results that could destroy cell usage? With corporate interests corrupting Congress it is highly unlikely that what is needed in terms of research and regulation will happen.

What should cell phone users do? They and children in particular should not be using cell phones without "ear buds." They should not keep cell phones that are turned on in their clothing next to their body. Use the speaker option. Recognize that texting and other phone functions can be less dangerous than holding a phone next to your head to hear. Remember that cordless phones also pose similar radiation hazards, so minimize their use at home.

I wonder where the richest and most powerful people in society, like President Obama (and his children), have been strongly advised to not hold phones next to the head.

Bottom line: Your addiction to cell phone use just might be your downfall. How much risk do you want to take? Smart phones are the rage. Now we need a lot more smart people. Disconnect.

How To Avoid the Friend Zone – Don’t Make These 4 Huge Mistakes!

How often have you spent weeks, or even months talking to that particular girl you like, then working up the courage to finally ask her out, only to hear those dreadful words:

“Oh, you’re so sweet, but I don’t really see you in that way. I only like you as a friend… “

When you hear that, it’s as if she has reached deep inside of your chest and ripped out your heart!

Hurts, doesn’t it?

Here are the biggest mistakes that men make and that you should avoid doing:

1 – They never tell the girls their true intentions!

This is the most common reason why guys eventually get friend zoned.

They like the girl; they want to go on a date with her, have fun, sleep with her, and eventually start a relationship. But they’re so afraid of rejection that they always skirt around the issue, never clearly stating what they want and letting the girl know that they actually like her romantically!

You must understand that rejection is a part of life and that no matter what you do – not everyone’s going to like you.

That’s why it’s always best to let the girl know that you’re interested in her romantically, and that you’d like to go on a date with her.

If she says yes – great! If she says no – at least you know where you stand with her, and you can move on, saving yourself a lot of time!

2 – They treat her like a princess!

If you never disagree with the girl, never express your own opinion, always feign interest in the topics that she brings up, even if they don’t interest you – the girl will notice this and won’t respect you.

If you’re constantly afraid of offending the girl or making her angry, always “walking on eggshells” so to speak – she’ll see that you are a spineless guy and lose all attraction towards you.

That’s exactly why “Bad Boys” get to have all the fun, while “Nice Guys” are left behind in the dust.

Bad Boys don’t fear rejection, aren’t afraid of offending people, of living life, of judgment from others. They don’t give a rat’s behind about what anyone thinks of them and they don’t filter their thoughts when they speak – they tell it like it is.

That is incredibly attractive to the vast majority of women, and exactly the reason why most girls fall for these so-called “rebels”.

3 – They constantly doubt themselves!

Self-doubt is one of the most unattractive qualities that a man can possess.

If you can’t make decisions, question your every move, hesitate when talking to the girl, touching her, leading her, and other similar things – you’re not going to get anywhere!

Women don’t like guys who are wracked with insecurities and self-esteem issues. It’s best that you learn how to get those things handled!

4 – They bore women half to death!

This is another huge mistake that most men make.

When talking to girls, they start asking all the boring, and uninspired questions like “Where are you from?”, “What do you do?”, “Where did you study?”, and so on and so forth.

Every girl has heard these questions a hundred times! You’re there to flirt, have a fun, interesting, and exciting conversation with her – and not to conduct an interview!

Refrain from asking the things that a thousand other guys have asked her – and learn some much-needed social skills that spice up a conversation. Skills like storytelling, joke telling, teasing, flirting, spiking emotions, etc.

Give her a reason to want to go on a date with you! Don’t bore her to death and show that you’re both going to have a fun time if she accepts your invitation!

If you follow this advice and always make your intentions clear, you’ll never land in the friend zone!

At worst, you’ll get rejected and know where you stand with her. Then you can quickly move on to another girl and stop wasting time!

Good luck!

Best Vacuum For Pet Allergies

If you’re like many people, you love your pet, but your allergies make it nearly impossible to spend the time with your beloved animal that would would like. Whether you just got a new animal, or you just developed the allergies, having a pet allergy can be very difficult for you and your family. While there are variety of medications on the market, many people would rather try something more natural before putting foreign chemicals in their body. There are also treatments for your pets, but those chemicals as well that you’re better off without.

Another option is to remove as much of the pet hair and dander from your home and hope that is enough to minimize the amount of pet allergens in the air and in your home. The most common way to do this is with a vacuum designed for just that purpose. One of the vacuums that can remove pet hair and pet dander from the air is the Eureka Boss 4D Pet Fresh. This vacuum has a HEPA filter that removes a very high percentage of air pollutants (usually over 97%) and it also has Arm & Hammer Pet Fresh inside. The air is filtered by the HEPA filter then run through the Arm & Hammer to remove even more of the pet dander.

Without a doubt this is much healthier for both you and your pet than something drastic like getting rid of your cat or dog, or trying even more drastic measures to keep cat hair or dog hair from bothering you. While there are other vacuums that will do the same job, the Eureka Boss 4D Pet Fresh combines all of the features that you would want in a vacuum to help with managing your allergies and pet hair.

Another feature that helps manage animal hair on hard floors is the brush roller shutoff. When you want to vacuum your linoleum, tile, or hardwood floors, you can turn off the brush so your vacuum only sucks in the air instead of spreading the hair around like a spinning brush does. So when you want to vacuum your carpet you keep the brush spinning to pull dirt and pet hair out of the carpet. When you move to the hard floors you turn the roller off and suck the hair up without spreading dust and allergens.

One of the other features that is a great asset when fighting pet allergies is the “Power Paw Power Brush”. The Power Paw is a smaller brush that attaches to the hose and can get in hard to reach places and also on furniture. It’s powered by the sucking air and spins a brush that works to lift the animal hair off of your furniture. This is especially important if you have suede or a fabric that doesn’t like to let go of the hair once it hits the couch fabric.

In addition to carpet, hard floors and furniture, another place you’ll find pet allergens like pet hair and pet dander is on your hard surfaces like counter tops, coffee tables, windows and fan blades. This Eureka Boss vacuum has a built in and self cleaning duster. After you do your dusting, you place the Boss 4D duster back into it’s side canister and the 4D vacuum sucks the dust off of the duster and straight into the easy to empty canister.

If you’re looking for an easy way to keep your pets in the house while keeping your allergies at bay, the Eureka Boss 4D is the answer you’ve been hoping for!

What You Should Know Before Taking Adderall

Adderall is a pharmaceutical stimulant amphetamine used to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy.

While the exact mechanism of Adderall is unknown, it is believed that Adderall works by blocking the reuptake of dopamine and norepinephrine into the presynaptic neuron and reverses the reuptake mechanism, turning it into a pump instead of a vacuum.

The increased flow of dopamine and norepinephrine into the extraneuronal space causes the brain, as one psychiatrist explains, to experience a more intense level of concentration, causing an increased ability to focus for extended periods of time, and a heightened interest in performing mental tasks.

Though rare, it is possible for Adderall to cause psychotic episodes at recommended doses in patients with a history of psychosis.

Some people feel that they are less creative while taking Adderall, while others report that the focusing effect can aid in creative work.

Common side effects of Adderall include:

* Increased heart rate * Insomnia * Loss of Appetite * Vertigo * Headache * Diarrhea * Sweating * Sexual dysfunction * Dry Mouth * Irritability * Tremor

Because Adderall uses amphetamine stimulants to help the user concentrate for extended periods of time, many students today request Adderall from doctors in order to use it as a study aid. Thus, it is increasingly popular on college campuses. The largest benefit to students however is Adderall’s ability to give students the power to focus on and learn what would usually be uninteresting material.

Because of the appetite-suppressing properties of amphetamines, it is also sought after by those wishing to lose weight. Another less common use for students is to take Adderall before or during a night of heavy drinking in order to remain alert and active despite being intoxicated.

On the street, Adderall is sold illegally for 2 to 8 a pill (pills ranging from 5 to 35 mg) (Purdie) or about 4- 10 for 20 mg (Peter). Slang terms for Adderall are: “study buddies”, “ralls”, “smart pills”, “beenies”, “amps”, “a-bombs”, “addies”, “blue buddies”, “Blue Betties”, “orange tic-tacs”, “jollies”, “smurphs”, “diet coke”, “Davies”, “team blue”, “the A train”, “A+” in reference to its stimulant effect (Ambien or Zolpidem is often referred to as “A-“, the reverse effect of Adderall), and in some regions of the U.S., “railguns” and “that’da boy(s).” On some college campuses taking Adderall is known as “taking the A train” or “getting some vitamin A.”

Friendship – A One-Sided Coin

What does 'friend' mean to you? Is it someone who would never give away your places under torture? Someone who would donate a kidney to you? Someone who would even die for you? If so, then sometimes you are less reasonable than you might think.

We all need five friends in order to be happy, according to a recent online survey. I learned about this survey while reading an article in which the writer did not concur with the findings. She claimed her need was far greater. As it is undoubtedly that any of us have the time to keep a large number of friendships in good repair, I imagine this writer's circle is no more than an entourage of acquentions that she uses to pad out her superior life. Article and survey as it was the comments section that I found most diverting. There was an alarming number of comments by people claiming to have given up on friendship on the grounds that they had been used and abused too many times. They had resolved to enter decrepitude alone and bitter, discarded husks of their former, optimistic selves.

Friendship is a fundamental part of human life. If people are rejecting friendship then there is a fundamental problem within society. When looking at social problems in the modern world, it's always helpful to remember that biologically we are the same as our tribal ancestors, and that we lived in tribes and close-knit communities for most of our history. In short, modern Western society is new to us.

A tribe is held together by bonds of trust and duty. Stigma, the daily scrutiny of others, and the captive nature of tribal life militate against shirking and selfishness. Everyone takes everyone else for granted and reciprocation is guaranteed.

Fast forward to the present and our fractured, atomised communities and what can we say?

The structure of the tribe or the close-knit community has seriously gone, and with it the guarantees of scrutiny and stigma. What remains, however, is the other side of the coin, our sense of entitlement and our tenderness to take others for granted. This means that if you have a highly developed sense of fairness and an altruistic disposition you may find that friends do not live up to your expectations. If this is you and it makes you unhappy, it is time, sometimes, to re-evaluate the notion of friendship.

They say that love and fear are the only true emotions, so it helps to see the failures of friends in terms of fear.

You may have a friend with a profound fear of financial insecurity. This would not be a friend to ask for a loan.

Some people fear socially awkward situations and so are careful about which friends they put together in the same room. Therefore do not always expect an invitation.

Time is more valuable than money and in a stressful world we must allocate our time carefully. Just because a friend can not spare you some time does not mean they are rejecting you. It may simply be that in order to prevent life getting on top of them they have to allocate that time for another purpose.

The way we feel changes according to the company we keep. Your friend may like your company when they are in one mood but prefer someone else's when they are in another mood. You should not take this personally. Your friend might have the health of your friendship at heart and not want to have a jaded experience with you because they happen to be in the wrong mood.

Remember that we are all selfish to a degree. We want to spend time with friends because they make us happy. Some of us derive satisfaction from making personal sacrifices for those in need. If this is you, ask yourself, would you continue to help people if doing so save you no satisfaction?

Finally, is it reasonable to expect our friends constantly to be thinking about our well-being? A friend is not a spouse or a parent. Give as much as makes you happy but do not expect too much in return. The company of friends is necessary for our mental health. But do not make the mistake of believing that a friend should be a personal therapist constantly at your beck and call.

The Importance Of Stability

"You can not fire a cannon from a canoe"

Although the above quote is an exaggerated example, stop and take a look at your local exercise arena! How many people do you see or know that can move amazing weights on a fixed machine, yet when asked to perform a single leg squat falls to pieces, literally!

Foundations first

What I'm saying is rather often than concentrating on what can be seen, what we can not see first! After all talk to any architect about a building, what are developed first on any building are a good foundation and a good structure. With out this the only thing that happens is the building collapses.

Stability training is needed today more than ever! It is projected that by the year 2045, there will be 77 million people older than the age of 65, and 1 out of every 5 people will be age 85 or older! Almost half the population over age 74 has difficulty with common functional activities, such as lifting, climbing stairs, walking, standing, bending, reaching and grasping, and it is well known that the most common orthopedic injury among the elderly are hip fractures.

To address the growing numbers of elderly members joining gyms and health clubs, emphasis will need to be placed on exercises that improve key bio motor abilities such as strength, endurance, balance, agility, coordination and flexibility. Accomplishing these objectives requires greater emphasis on functional exercise programs, including Tai Chi, Yoga, Swiss ball training and free weight training, and a greater emphasis will need to be put on the skilful use of tools such as the Fitter, balance boards and BOSU balls . Effective implementation of these exercise programs will require a more structured approach to training than is currently being used and it will require that gyms provide the space for these types of exercise, particularly in the free weight area.

Stability of the human body can first be broken down into separate sections:

Segmental Stability.

This is the ability of any joint to function around an optimal axis of rotation. All joints within the body are affected by segmental stabilizers (cross one joint) and gross stabilizers (multiple joints), due to common faulty posture gross muscles can be used to try and stabilize the joint rather than the segmental muscles. As the smaller segmental muscles affect what the larger global muscles do this results in faulty loading and ever breakdown. So This would be the first stage of our structured training, to look at the persons posture and the relationship of muscles around the joints to identify what is tight and needs loosing and what is weak and needs strengthening. A Classic example is rounded shoulders and forward head positioning, in this case the chest, neck and upper abdomen need to be stretched, whilst the upper back and rotator cuff musculature need to be strengthened.

Performing a length / tension assessment, with particular emphasis on those muscles recognized as tight, will be essential to developing a corrective stretching program. Stretching tonic muscles prior to exercise has been shown to decrease their activation, thus encouraging normal sequencing, muscle recruitment and joint stability – all prerequisites to developing a balanced body! By carefully allocating time to restore intrinsic muscle balance and stability through joint mobilizations, stretching exercises and stabilization exercises, the practitioner will be facilitating more rapid acquisition of task specific balance skills and long term stability in his / her client.

Static stability

Can you maintain optimal alignment while doing nothing? The common answer due to today's listed lifestyle is commonly no!

Static stability exercises are exercises that strengthen the postural muscles and improve postural awareness. An example of the many ways to begin static postural training is the Seated Posture Trainer, during which your client learns to sit with good posture on a Swiss ball. As the client's postural endurance, control and awareness improve, lifting a foot off the floor and trying to hold good spinal alignment and balance can challenge them. What is of great importance during the static postural phase is that the client learns an awareness of their body segments and how to balance them in good alignment. To accomplish this requires more than simply standing there while being prodded by an instructor to "hold good posture."

To exemplify how developing static postural competency is critical to long-term efficiency in the use of your motor system, consider that "posture is the position from which movement begins and ends." If you begin in poor posture, you will not only end in poor posture, you will be less skillful and more likely to acquire unnecessary crime. A great example of this very situation can be seen in golf. The first thing you must do to be successful as a golfer is addresses the ball. Addressing the ball is very much a postural event.

Once you can gradually hold a variety of positions, such as lying, kneeling, sitting and standing it is then onto the next stage.

Dynamic / task specific stability

Simply put this is the ability to maintain optimal alignment of the body's' bones and joints while either moving or performing a gross task. This can be any task from bending to pick up the shopping to moving those heavy dumbbells within the gym. Now most of the movements performed today can be categorized into seven different dynamic movement which are listed below:

"Squatting

"Lunging

"Bending

"Pushing

"Pulling

"Twisting

"Gait (walking / running pattern)

Due to the SAID principle (specific adaptation to imposed claims), you must emphasize developing balance in the movement patterns that are most specific and most challenging to yourself. Once you have mastered dynamic stability, or balance and orientation of the body segments while performing the movements most challenging to them and specific to their environment, you can begin to make the movements more challenging by decreasing base of support or increasing the complexity of an exercise . For example, a squat can be progressed to squat with a weight shift, as necessary to get into and out of a car. Next we can move to single leg squats.

While focusing on the primary objective, we can incorporate the use of apparatus to challenge the neuromuscular system on a more global level. For example, we can use the Swiss ball, which is a mobile structure with a small base of support that moves very quickly in response to any change in the position of your center of gravity. You can also incorporate the use of apparatus to challenge the neuromuscular system on a more global level. For example, you can use the Swiss ball, which is a mobile structure with a small base of support that moves very quickly in response to any change in the position of your center of gravity.

Once you can ideally stabilize in the environment and / or move then can you focus on increasing muscular performance or aesthetic look. This may seem a long approach to achieve what on the similar result, remember true change of any type takes time, dedication and persistent effort. If this method means that it takes longer to get there, without the structural problems such as torn muscles, injured joints etc … is not it worth the sacrifice, after all each journey begins with a small step.

How to Help Someone with Depression

Warning signs of depression

Warning signs of depression depends on the age and various other factors. The warning signs of depression for children, teenagers, and adults are different.

Low self esteem:A depressed person always feels that he/she is worthless and is obsessed with a guilt feeling. They mostly have an unclear outlook towards reality. They often criticize themselves and also think about committing suicide and ending this worthless life

Alterations in energy levels: They also face alterations in energy levels such as sometimes they become inactive or frustrated and angry. They experience difficulty in making decisions, have faulty memory, and less concentration

Psychotic symptoms:People with serious depression may sometimes have hallucinations or delusions. Such people should be hospitalized.

Changes in food habits and sleep: There are many changes in the food habits. They may lack appetite or sometimes have an increased feeling of hunger. There may be disturbances in the sleep patterns of such person as well. They may either tend to oversleep or sleep for a shorter duration.

Apart from these other warning signs include:

  • Weight Loss
  • Suicidal tendency
  • Lack of interest in social activities
  • Frequently feeling frustrated, angry, anxious, and worried

How to deal with Depression

  • The first and foremost thing required for helping someone who is fighting depression is to collect information about depression. It should include information such as what exactly is depression, its warning signs, and depression treatment
  • Once you have a brief idea about depression disability, only then you would be able to track the problem of your loved ones, depression causes, and the right treatment required for the depression. There are a large number reliable resources available such as the Internet, health magazines, and journals where you can find such information
  • Know the facts and misconceptions about depression and try to think about the affected person i.e. how the person feels in that situation. This would help you to know the problem in a better way and also help you to handle it properly
  • Avoid getting annoyed, frustrated, and upset on the depressed person. It would have a negative impact on him/her
  • Take proper care of yourself and discuss the situation. Vent your anger with a close relative or a friend
  • Give a patient hearing to the depressed person’s problems or emotional break outs. Share with them information and facts about depression and make them understand that they can come out of it.  They may have a low self esteem about themselves. Explain to them that they are not weak or useless
  • They would normally do all their regular chores and activities. They might get angry and refuse to do certain other things. This doesn’t mean that the person doesn’t love you anymore. Don’t pressurize them to do anything they don’t want to do
  • Giving the right medicines and treatment is the most crucial task to be considered while dealing with a depressed person. Take out the fears of the depressed person about the treatment, make them aware that they are not mad, and the problem will be soon sought out
  • Help them to cope with depression and give them assurances in a suitable form they accept.  Refer to online sites and collect information about the ways to cope up suicidal tendencies. Try to bring them out of these suicidal tendencies
  • Make them feel that you are not frustrated or angry with them. Give them unconditional love and a feeling of belongingness

Transition Between Pregnancy and Birth (1)

The period between pregnancy and childbirth is usually full of anxiety, understandably so for several reasons. Labour has always been seen as a period when the life of an expectant mother hangs between life and death. However if we remember that in every situation in life we are at risk of death, many may become more relaxed and regard labour as a normal physiological process that must be experienced before a new life is brought into this planet.

In the womb, the baby’s source of life (calories, proteins, fluid, oxygen and some other necessities of life) are supplied by the mother. This is through the umbilical cord which attaches the baby to the mothers’ placenta on the womb through the umbilicus. The umbilicus has a network of vessels (arteries and veins) which transport these nutrients to the baby and also gets rid of the products from the baby in the reverse direction to the mothers’ system. These by products are then excreted through the mothers’ various excretory system.

At the end of labour, the baby’s system is detached from the mothers’ and the baby now has to learn to live an independent life. A lot of readjustments have to be made to achieve this and failure in any of these leads to some of the problems experienced by some babies shortly after or sometime after birth.Inability of the baby to breathe well (or cry) after birth may lead to lack of oxygen supply to the brain; a condition referred to as asphyxia. Asphyxia can also affect the kidneys, the heart and many other organs of the body. The duration of asphyxia in most cases determine the result or outcome of asphyxia. Permanent damage can occur in some cases especially in the brain and some people we see in the streets incapacitated especially mentally and physically may be as a result of this problem. This is referred to medically as cerebral palsy. The baby affected may not be able to sit, crawl or walk in good time leaving the parents very worried about their development. A number of them that survive become mentally handicapped and are slow in most areas of mental development. They will usually at school age need to attend special schools or care centres that are specialized in taking care of them. Needless to say, some of these babies die during delivery because of the problems earlier mentioned.

It is very important to note that the most effective way of avoiding this problem is prevention. Mothers should attend antenatal clinics when they are pregnant so that any problems that may arise during delivery will be anticipated and steps taken to avoid them.Many of the babies that develop asphyxia is because the baby is either too big to pass through the birth canal, or the mothers’ birth canal is too narrow to allow the baby pass through making normal delivery difficult or even impossible. An operation or some other form of medical intervention is therefore needed to deliver the baby alive and well. We will continue next week.

Creatine: Safety, Benefits, and How It Works

Creatine. It is the most well known, as well as the most studied supplement in the industry right behind whey. There are studies going back decades with pretty conclusive evidence that points to creatine being extremely safe. But if creatine has so many studies, then why does it have so much opposition? My opinion is that most opposition is due to a lack of understanding. Average people do not understand creatine. When a 12 year old boy wants to start lifting weights and tells their mom they want to buy a magical powder that will make him big and strong, his mom is absolutely correct to worry. After all, something that makes you build muscle and strength is probably a steroid, right? Possibly. But that is not what creatine does.

Is Creatine a Steroid?

The short answer: Absolutely not. To understand why creatine is not a steroid, you must first understand what a steroid actually is.

What are Steroids?

Why is it that males are almost always more muscular than females? Why can a man naturally be 200 pounds of muscle, but a woman will never naturally reach that level of muscularity? Simply put, males naturally produce a hormone called testosterone. You have most likely heard of it. Testosterone is what makes a man a man. It’s what causes his deep voice, body hair, facial hair, strength, and what we think of as masculine instincts. It’s what causes males to fight over females, in human social settings and in nature. A performance enhancing steroid is basically synthetic testosterone, or other synthesized hormones that are actually more anabolic than testosterone. Some steroids are not even found in nature. Steroids can carry some nasty side effects and a lot of health risks later on in life.

What is Creatine?

So now that we have a basic understanding of what steroids are, what is creatine?

Creatine is found in almost every animal, including humans. We get it from meat and we naturally synthesize it. Creatine is a completely natural organic acid that provides cellular energy to your cells. It is found in the highest concentrations in muscle cells. Creatine and steroids can not even be compared. One works hormonally, one works inside of your cells naturally. Creatine will not make you superhuman like steroids. Steroids can push your body past physiological limits. With years of training and a perfect diet might be able to be a little over 200 lbs of lean muscle naturally. With steroids you can put on another 20-50 pounds. If you are pushing your body past a natural limit, you are putting multiple organs under extreme stress, especially your heart. Creatine does no such thing. Creatine will indirectly help you add strength and mass by allowing your muscle cells to work just a bit harder.

How Does Creatine Work?

If you were awake for high school biology, you probably learned about cellular energy. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), glucose, cellular respiration, and all of that fun stuff. If not, I will give you the brief rundown.

You cells contain a bit of a molecule called adenosine triphosphate. You cell generates energy by breaking a phosphate bond in the mitochondria. Any time a bond is broken, energy is released. The adenosine triphosphate then becomes adenosine diphosphate (ADP), and needs to find another phosphate atom to bond with so that it can break it in the mitochondria. Creatine bond with phosphate and becomes phosphocreatine, which is stored in the cells. Phosphocreatine can rapidly turn ADP into much needed ATP. That ATP can then go break another bond for cellular energy.

Think of your cells as a steam engine train. The ATP represents a worker that has a shovel full of coal, while the ADP represents a worker with an empty shovel. The ADP worker has to go to the next car over to get a shovel of coal to put in the fire to keep the train running. Creatine would represent a supply of coal in the same car as the fire. The ADP worker would have to walk a few feet instead of to the next car over to get the much needed coal, which represents phosphate. It is a natural function of life. Creatine is already working in your body keeping your cells alive and energized.

So Why Supplement More?

The concentrations of phosphocreatine in your cells is not even close to the maximum. Your whole body can use about 5 grams of creatine. The concentration in your cells varies, but it is much lower. There comes a point in time during high exertion activities where your muscle cell’s phosphocreatine levels will come close to zero. That means your cells will have to rely on inefficient glycolysis for energy. That process is slow, generates very little energy, and causes more lactic acid buildup, which causes the burn you feel in your muscles. When you supplement with additional creatine, your phosphocreatine levels will stay higher for longer. This does not turn you into a superhuman and it won’t add 50 pounds to your bench. The additional phosphocreatine will give you a small, but noticeable boost in your workouts. You might be able to lift a few pounds more, or the same weight for a couple extra reps. This might not sound like much, but overtime if you are doing an extra 1-3 reps, you will build muscle and gain strength faster. However, creatine WILL cause you to gain weight right away. Gaining 5 pounds is not unheard of. This is not hard muscle gain though, that is extra water weight that the phosphocreatine adds to your muscle cells.

Why Do People Think Creatine Is Bad?

Creatine CAN cause some minor issues if you do not take it the right way. It can cause cramping, and minor stomach issues. Those are both due to dehydration. If you supplement creatine, your muscle cells are using more water, which means you definitely need to increase your water intake. Increasing your water intake will also lead to benefits in other areas of your life as well. Some people also say it is bad for your kidneys. The only slight possibility of that is from extreme dehydration. But for that to actually happen, you would need to be very dehydrated before starting your supplementation. There are also a small handful of people that will tell you creatine is bad for your heart. This is because those people have not taken the time to research and learn that it is NOT a steroid.

How to Supplement Creatine

Their are many forms of creatine, all with their own claim to fame. Most of these will work just as well, but they are much more expensive. The best and cheapest way to go is with normal creatine monohydrate. This is the most studied, most popular, and cheapest form. I prefer Optimum Nutrition Creatine Powder. Optimum Nutrition is one of the first brands in the supplement game. They make very pure and safe supplements for a great deal. This particular product is also the best seller in creatine.

Some people will tell you about a “loading phase”, which is a means you take about 20 grams for your first week, then reduce to 5 grams every day. I am not a big believer in the loading phase, but you are more than welcome to try it and let me know what you thought. I start with 5 grams every day and keep it that way. It might take a day or two longer to take effect, but you are saving money.

How to Overcome Fear of Roaches With Help From Self Hypnosis

The fear of roaches is a common problem that many people face. Many consider the roach as a source of anxiety and panic with good reason. Cockroaches are unpleasant, insidious creatures that seem impossible to destroy. While it is reasonable to be a little afraid of these insects, it isn’t reasonable to have a phobia of roaches.

Self Help Fear

Taking a self help approach to dealing with being afraid is very empowering but you may need support if you have irrational feelings of panic at the very thought of cockroaches. The phobic response can be so overwhelming that you find it difficult to think about a roach. Reading about them can give you anxiety as well.

Your mind may go into overdrive with imagination that has a negative impact on your ability to deal with cockroaches realistically. This is very problematic but it can be reversed with relative ease using self-hypnosis as a guide. Part of the process relies on your subconscious mind to re-see how you perceive cockroaches.

Overcoming Fear of Roaches

You can overcome your fear and anticipation by taking a realistic perspective on the situation. The cockroach is a valuable creature that serves a purpose, other than to cause you personal anguish. These insects can be controlled with proper interventions and a visit from your exterminator.

You can replace the image of the sneaky insect crawling around in the dark with images of the insect leaving your space and entering a new place where he serves his valuable purpose. The bug is nothing more than an insect. It can’t hurt you and it really doesn’t want a face-to-face encounter with you, either.

Changing Thoughts Changes Emotional Responses

Your thinking patterns related to the creepy-crawlies is the fundamental problem in overcoming your anxiety and panicked responses. The bugs aren’t pretty and they are a nuisance but they are not really harmful. You have control over your response to them.

Control begins when you delve into your subconscious mind to retrain it to have different responses to this insect. When you take self-hypnosis as an approach, you are working with your natural emotional responses that seem beyond your control. You find that your automatic reactions are not so automatic after all.

Grow Taller – Non Surgical Ways to Increase Height

It’s true that many people equate height to self-esteem and confidence. Some people who are shorter may experience feelings of inferiority. There is a common myth that once you end puberty, you are unable to continue growing. This is untrue, as there have been people around the world who have increase their height well into their thirties. We will be discussing the different ways in which you can grow taller. Some of these tips are natural and some are surgical.

Exercise is the most natural way to grow taller. If you start exercising as a teenager, you will have moderate growth in height. But exercising as an adult can cause you to have continued growth. Consult with a health professional and physical trainer to advise you in which exercises are best to grow taller. Before you start your exercise regime, get measurements so that you can keep a record of your progress.

Some people consider surgery to get taller. It is a risky procedure based on the idea that bones can regenerate. This process, known as distraction osteogenesis, has been used in correcting deformities. The decision to use surgical means to grow taller has to be taken seriously. This process is very expensive, painful and takes a long time to recover.

Another option to become taller is to use special shoes. These shoes have hidden soles to give you the appearance of height. Years ago, heightening shoes had high heels, so everyone knew you were trying to be taller. But these new shoes on the market create height without anyone knowing.

In addition to these methods listed, there are certain medicines that can help you grow taller. You should only pursue this option under the advice and supervision of a medical doctor.

Michael Besson’s Answer’s for Depression, Anxiety, Worry and Fear

Depression, Anxiety, Worry and Fear have become the “common cold” of personal health challenges, and one source estimates that it disrupts the lives of 30 to 40 million Americans. Some people say it’s all in your head but if you have it, you know it’s very real to you.

The biggest challenge to depression and other emotional issues is the ‘answer.’ You need to understand the three-fold nature of man.

1) He is a Spirit
2) He lives in a body
3) He has a Soul i.e., his mind, will and emotions

So what can a MD doctor do for you?
He has little to no training in all three areas so generally speaking he listens to his pharmaceutical sales reps advice and tells you to pop a pill. Not a bad band aid but hardly a real life long solution.

What about counseling?
If the person giving the counseling does not understand all three areas, at best you can get partial healing.

What about your pastor’s help?
We all need and love pastors. But, sadly, pastors suffer at the same rate of depression (sometimes more) as the general population. Chances are a few bible verses about all things working together for the good of those that love God and are called to His purpose are not going to get to the heart of what you’re going through.

Depression is too complicated to solve with a single pat answer. But try these on for size:

  • Develop a multi faceted approach. This is important since it’s affecting the three-fold-nature of who you are.
  • Avoid being alone. Force yourself to be with people. When you pick people to be with, choose uplifting positive people. Stay away from the drama kings and queens.
  • Look at your physiology. That means your breathing patterns, your eye movement, your energy level and your speech patterns. Find someone that can teach you how to change this. It will work wonders.
  • Sing. Music can uplift your spirit as it did for King Saul (1 Samuel 16:14-23).
  • Lean heavily on the power of God’s Word. Meditate on the psalms. It heals your soul.

Depression is a complex area, and severe problems of depression deserve the attention of someone that can get you real results. DO NOT GIVE UP HOPE! You can come out of this and feel better about life than ever before if you just find the right help.

How To Cure Insomnia Without Medication

What would you do when you can’t fall asleep for the night or worse, for a few nights?

Indeed, you’ll feel awful and grouchy if you lose sleep the whole night. Thank goodness for the invention of insomnia medication – you hit the sack and sleep like a log throughout the night.

So you start popping sleeping pills or medication, thinking you found a cure for your insomnia? Is it really? No, do not depend entirely on sleep drugs for they can create undesirable side effects while temporarily inducing sleep.

To cure insomnia, you just need some natural remedies. In fact, start by analyzing your lifestyle, as they may be the cause of your insomnia. Once you change some of your habits, you’ll nip your insomniac problem in the bud.

Now, try out these simple natural insomnia remedies, which aim to change your habits to cure your insomnia. They work best for you if your sleep disorder is not sparked by the side effects from other medications you’re undertaking.

1. Reserve your bedroom for TWO things only – sleep and sex. In other words, avoid eating, working, computers, TV, video or loud music in the bedroom.

2. Create a clean and comfy environment for slumbering – soft lights, good ventilation, appropriate room temperature, good support pillows, and sufficient comforters.

3. Taking a relaxing warm bath before bedtime can lower your body temperature thereby helps to induce sleep. Soaking your feet in a tub of warm water before bedtime can achieve similar effect. Certain aromatherapy oil can enhance calming effect, provided you like the smell.

4. Avoid caffeinated drinks such as coffee, tea, soft drinks or chocolate drink and / or cigarettes after 7pm in the evening. Also avoid snacking just before slumbertime so that your body can fully focus on making you sleep instead of having to partially work on the food you send to your stomach.

5. Turn off your cell phone (its radiation can upset your normal sleep pattern), blackberries, MSN or Yahoo! Messenger, ICQ etc after a certain time at night.

6. Sleep inducers such as soymilk, whole grain, certain seeds (pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds) and nuts (walnuts, cashews, almonds, pecans, peanuts) help your brain to relax. Drink a glass of milk or calming herbal tea with a handful of whole-wheat crackers before bedtime. But remember not to overeat those foods and do visit the bathroom right before sack time so that you won’t have to drag yourself up in the mid of your sweet dream (I hate that!).

7. If you cannot conk out after half an hour in bed, get up and listen to some soothing music, or read a book (but avoid stimulating or exciting content such as horrors and thrillers). Use warm tungsten reading lamp instead of fluorescent lamp. Avoid watching TV or DVDs as the light from these devices are bright and will interfere with your body’s biological clock, worsening your sleepless condition. Return to bed as soon as you feel sleepy.

8. Regular exercise relieves tension, thereby aiding sleep. But try not to work out before sleeptime as it may keep you awake.

9. Train your body to sleep and wake up at the same time every day regardless of whether it is weekend or public holiday. Setting a regular sleep routine helps your body and brain get used to falling asleep naturally at a fixed time each day. The ideal time to hit the hay is between 9 to 11pm so as to achieve better sleep quality.

10. If you need to snooze during the day, try to keep it within 20 – 30 minutes that is sufficient to charge you up. Napping too long may result in dizzy mind, which can adversely affect your productivity as well as your nocturnal sleep.

11. If you’re working at home, stop work at least two hours before turning in to allow your mind to unwind and relax.

12. Improve your diet by reducing meat intake and eating more fruits and vegetables such as berries, green leafy vegetables, whole grains and cereals. These natural goodies help to revitalize your body and help to keep your sleeping mechanism function properly with less “glitches”.

I would also recommend an amazing sleep-inducing fruit for insomnia cure – Kiwi.

Packed with abundant vitamins (especially vitamin C), minerals (including calcium, potassium, magnesium) and dietary fiber, you should eat them more often and not only for insomnia problem.

Among the nutrients in kiwi, calcium is the one helping you to relax, which isn’t found in many fruits. But be prepared that you’ll only feel the effect after a few weeks of eating 2 kiwis each night.

What about taking calcium supplements? As with all artificially extracted supplements, they bring some adverse conditions. I reckon you do not want to add more toll on your health with those side effects.

Kiwi’s effect too slow for you? Think about this – eating two per night replenishes you with so much nutrition and makes you sleep better naturally in the long run. Isn’t this an easy and healthy deal?

Sleep medication or natural cure for insomnia? Make your choice.

The Consequences of Poor Blood Sugar Balance

Here's what happens when our blood sugar is not properly balanced.

When our brains detect glucose in the blood stream, as a result of digesting food, our pancreases confidential insulin to help the transportation of glucose into the cells for metabolism, or for conversion to glycogen or fat. Consequently, this causes a dip in blood-sugar. When our brains detect such a dip, they prompt our bodies to call for food: hence we feel hungry.

The more we can even out the dips in blood-sugar, the more comfortable we are, feeling satisfied or fuller for longer. This is our ideal situation. It is created by eating foods that will deliver a low GL meal, causing the rate of food conversion to provide a steady release of glucose. It means that our food provides a supply of energy at the same rate we need it, until it is used up. Our bodies then invoke their hunger response, prompting us to eat again to maintain the glucose / energy supply.

When we consume high GI foods or high GL meals that generate glucose very quickly, at a pace much faster than our bodies require energy, we secure insulin in large quantities, and fast! Having too much glucose in our blood streams is not a good thing! For now, picture this: we eat a meal rich in refined carbohydrates, our blood is arranged with glucose, we secure lots of insulin to remove the excess glucose which is converted to glycogen or fat. Our blood-sugar dips again very quickly, and we are hungry again in no time at all.

We easily find ourselves in a cycle of binging and rapid hunger, needing to eat again very quickly. In fact our bodies never seem to be satisfied and because we become accredited to need more glucose, it tends to be those very sweet foods that our bodies crave.

So the very best we can hope to experience if we do not eat to control our blood sugar levels is frequent hunger, food cravings, especially for sweet and sugary foods, and the resultant apple-shape or muffin top!

Sadly, the story does not end at that!

When we have low-blood sugar – either ongoing or as a result of some of the lows experienced as a result of large fluctuations – our bodies will conserve as much glucose as they can for our brains. This means that other parts of our bodies may be stripped until another source of glucose can be found – either from eating, or as a result of our livers releasing some from glycogen or from fat stores. We may experience energy dips, especially mid-morning or mid-afternoon. We may also experience general tiredness, fatigue, confusion and an inability to concentrate, irritability, an ability to communicate well, or even "the shakes". Many cases of insomnia, particularly characterized by waking in the middle of the night, are due to low blood sugar – causing us to wake. Even though we do not always recognize the reason or take appropriate action, it is a prompt for us to feed our bodies again.

When we continue to eat sugars and refined carbohydrates or high GI foods, our bodies have to secure lots and lots of insulin, too much and too often. The healthy process as we have described above, in which insulin helps our cells to absorb the glucose through the cell walls, begins to break down. The cell walls no longer respond to the insulin, and the glucose remains in the blood stream at too high levels. This is called "insulin resistance", and it is effectively our ability to process glucose properly. This condition has different names, depending on where in the world you live. You may have heard it called "Metabolic Syndrome"? Or "Syndrome X"? Cardiometabolic Syndrome? Reaven's Syndrome? Or in Australia you may know it as CHAOS, which is a brilliantly descriptive name for its consequences!

Insulin resistance is essentially a combination of medical disorders that, when occurring together, increase the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases, strokes and diabetes. It is associated with high levels of triglycerides (a type of fat) in the blood stream, cholesterol problems, and high blood pressure. It is not to be taken at all lightly: in general, someone having insulin resistance is twice as likely to develop heart disease and five times as reasonably to develop diabetes as someone with normal insulin function.
