Dirt is NOT Dirty – How Playing in the Dirt Benefits the Immune System | Wake Up World

during the early years of life there are some crucial biological developments that happen which cannot be recreated later on in life — and building a strong immune system is one of them. Just like any other muscle in our body, the immune system needs to be exercised in order to fully develop and become strong enough to resist illness and disease. Playing in the dirt as a child turns out to be the ideal training to build your immune system’s overall fitness. By Guest Writer Alexandra Du Toit

Music and Memory program shows promise in helping dementia patients – The Blade

Virginia Hieskell leaned back in her wheelchair at ProMedica Goerlich Center on the Flower Hospital campus, closed her eyes, and tapped her feet to Christmas music flowing through earphones on an iPod Shuffle. Before the 81-year-old was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s roughly 10 years ago, her daughter, Debra Swanson, said her mother loved Christmas, even leaving decorations up year-round. “It’s always made her happy,” Ms. Swanson said. About 30 miles away, Bowling Green Manor resident Donnagene Shrider opened her eyes as she listened to Elvis sing Christmas songs through another iPod Shuffle. “Earlier I pulled the earphones off and asked, ‘How do you like the music?’ and she said, ‘Wonderful,’ ” said Donnagene’s daughter, Nancy. “Normally she’s confused and you don’t know what’s going to

Ditch The Antibacterial Soaps!


Antibacterial soaps kill bacteria and microbes – but so do plain soap and water. An FDA advisory committee found that using antibacterial soaps provides no benefits over plain soap and water. The FDA banned triclosan, triclocarban and 17 other antibacterial ingredients in hand soaps, effective September 2017.

Many ingredients added to soap, plastics and textiles to make them “antibacterial” pose safety concerns and provide minimal, if any, benefits. After the ban, triclosan can still be added to many antibacterial consumer products.

Triclosan is linked to liver and inhalation toxicity. Even low levels of triclosan may disrupt thyroid function. Triclosan and other antibacterial ingredients may encourage bacterial resistance to antibiotics.

Antibacterial chemicals such as triclosan affect the natural environment. Wastewater treatment does not remove all triclosan, sending it into lakes, rivers and water sources, whcre it is very toxic to aquatic life.

Song: “Isang Pamilya Tayo Ngayong Pasko” – “We are One Family Together This Christmas”

Nothing is impossible in life as long as we remain as one family in love and in faith.

We Filipinos are known for how deeply we cherish our family and our faith in God. Our family has always been the foundation of our personal values and utmost source of support. Our faith in God is our stronghold and armor against any adversity. This is why despite all the trials we encounter, we remain hopeful and strong.

This Christmas, we are shining the spotlight on individuals, communities and organizations that are examples of determination to succeed and of commitment to improve their lives and the lives of others no matter what the difficulties are.

The Kapamilya stars and personalities in this video pay tribute and share the stories of these exemplary individuals and organizations that have triumphantly surpassed their challenging situations. These stories of successes have now become sources of inspiration and encouragement to other Filipinos who also dream of changing their lives for the better.

Get Extreme Clairvoyance Abilities (See the Future) Psychic Subliminal Binaural Beat Meditation – YouTube

Clairvoyance is the ability to summon images of the past or present events, related with an object, person and event. This test is not intended to detect that particular type of clairvoyance, but it allows, with a great degree of probability, to reveal the hidden possibilities of your own self, inborn capacity for clairvoyance which may be developed into a usable clairvoyance ability.

If you can predict the future, you may want to keep your clairvoyant powers to yourself. Otherwise everyone will be knocking down your door asking for the next winning lotto numbers.
A clairvoyant individual is believed to possess psychic abilities or a higher level of insight than other humans who can only use the regular old five senses.

Clairvoyance is an enhanced development of our natural ‘sixth sense’, which is our ability to know things even when they are not obvious and to understand things we have never learned.

Literally, Clairvoyance means ‘clear seeing’.  It is the ability to see things with full perspective, which includes the past, present and the potential future. Energy fields, called Auras, which surround objects and people, can also be seen and interpreted using this ability.

In truth, this ‘seeing’ is really an awareness of thoughts, feelings and alternate dimensions of reality – movements of energy that are very real, but invisible to the human eye. This awareness is then translated through the physical senses (touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing) of a Clairvoyant.

Each Clairvoyant will use one or more of these physical senses to channel their awareness through. The more developed the Clairvoyant, the more senses they will use. The best way for a Clairvoyant to develop their psychic gift is to develop these ‘real’ senses or simply to keep growing and learning on a down to earth human level.

There is also a higher form of Clairvoyance which seems to transcend everything and allows all six senses to merge into one whole sense of ‘knowing’.
