DON'T MESS WITH MOTHER NATURE

Don't Mess With Mother Nature!
Researchers at the University of Maryland have publicly stated what chiropractors and other drug-free, vitalistic healers have been saying for a long time:
Taking Aspirin or Tylenol for the flu actually could prolong your illness by up to 3 1/2 days. Fever is the body's natural way of fighting an infection and taking Aspirin or Tylenol interferes with your body's natural healing process. "You're messing with Mother Nature," says Dr. Leland Rickman, an associate clinical professor of medicine at the University of California, San Diego. An elevated temperature "may actually help the body fight the infection quicker or better than if you don't have a fever." The Maryland researchers found that Influenza A sufferers who were treated with Aspirin or acetaminophen may prolong Influenza A and possibly other viral infections according to researchers.

Take A Deep Breath

Want to boost your health? Here's a simple solution: Take a breath. Your lungs are larger at the bottom than the top, but most Americans are "top breathers." We live in a shallow breaths common to the sick and sleeping.

Learn to breathe from the gut. You know you are breathing correctly--from your diaphragm-- if you see your stomach move in and out. if the only thing that moves or expands is your chest, then you are still taking only shallow breaths.

Deep breathing literally massages and moves the soft internal organs inside your rib cage, allowing your lymphatic system to rid itself of collected toxins. Only deep breathing allows you to tap this bonus power in your lower lungs. Singers, stage performers, broadcast announcers, and professional athletes pay great sums to voice and dialogue coaches to learn how to breathe and project through diaphragm breathing.
