Take a break: procrastination found to bolster productivity
While the act of procrastination is viewed by many as something highly unacceptable, a trait of the lazy and easily-bored in society, research shows that it may actually lead to increased productivity.
Professor and procrastination expert Piers Steel, Ph.D, gathered 24 participants and divided them in two groups in an effort to assess whether delaying tasks helped or hindered their completion.

If you have cancer, then most of these foods should
be included in your daily
A new scientific review identifies 25 of the top foods and herbs which kill the cancer stem cells at the root cause of cancer malignancy.
And top of the list is Green Tea!
The primary reason why conventional chemotherapy and also radiotherapy have failed to produce any significant improvements in cancer survival rates is because cancer stem cells are resistant to these interventions. In fact, chemotherapy and especially radiation are both capable of increasing the number and virulence of these cells in a tumour, while at the same time having the well known side effect of further damaging the patient's immune system.
Losing weight looks easy in principle but its really difficult in practice. Why? Could one reason be a lack of discipline? Or are we no longer concerned about the consequences of being overweight?
Everybody's different and we all need to approach and deal with our daily dietary needs in our own uniquely different way.
This is my Daily Raw Vegetable Rocket
I use a juice extractor with a single auger, like those found in a millstone for best results, as a blender will reduce the quality of the enzymes in raw foods with its centrifugal force.
All chosen for their anti-cancer, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
All fresh and raw and chopped into small or long enough pieces to be easily fed into the extractor and mulched.
2 large or 3 medium carrots
I large red pepper
5 large slices of ginger root
2 medium or cherry tomatoes
3 Broccoli stems
3 Asparagus stems
2 large celery sticks
1 4 inch long section of cucumber
1 small Garlic clove
3 hefty fork fulls of Sauerkraut
A variety of herbs - Dill, Mint, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme.
6 large raw Turmeric root shavings.
A good dose of ground black pepper.
1 capfull (the cap of the bottle) of Apple Cider Vinegar.
Hand stir the pepper into the juice and drink slowly over a period of fve to ten minutes. Never leave standing for too long as the effect of the juices lessens over time through oxidisation.
A great way to start the day and followed up by most of what I do for the remainder of the day....
Is it a good idea to “starve” yourself just a little bit each day, or a couple of days a week? Mounting evidence indicates that yes, Intermittent Fasting (IF) could.......Read on........
Not only is Functional Medicine here to stay, it is poised to be the centerpiece in one of the most significant shifts in the health and medical paradigm in the past one hundred years. For anyone who has been paying attention, there has been a virtual war going on between Conventional/Allopathic Medicine and Functional/Natural Medicine since the early 1900s. In fact, this virtual war often became a real war when the medical establishment would attack and try to discredit chiropractors, naturopaths, homeopathy practitioners and those who made or distributed nutritional supplements.
Functional/Natural Medicine has been gaining increasing scientific credibility, according to this sample of recent studies:
A study by the British medical journal Lancet Oncology found that Functional Medicine was able to stop and reverse hypertension, obesity, heart disease, and prostate cancer.
A study by the Institute of Medicine found that scientifically proven conventional treatments, combined with meditation, yoga, acupuncture, and herbal medicine, proved to be both medically and cost-effective.
The National Institutes of Health conducted a meta-analysis entitled "Health Cost Effectiveness of Natural Health Products: A Systematic Review of Randomized Clinic Trials" and found positive health outcomes with cost savings up to 73% for natural products, compared to conventional treatments.
No one is suggesting that everything about Conventional Medicine is bad and should be changed without cause. Acute care in the form of operations is pretty good and saves many lives every year. Some operations do not have a very good track record, such as angioplasty, and there is scientific evidence to support 20-25% of what Conventional Medicine does. What we need is a true integration of these two forms of medicine, by taking the best of both and combining them to make a medical system that truly saves lives and prevents as much illness, suffering, and excessive spending as possible. The direction has been clearly laid out. All we need is someone like Mahatma Gandhi to step out in front of the change and lead the way.
