Community Action Announcement

We are highlighting one very caring young lady. She needs our support and donations. Her goal is to obtain adequate housing, safe transportation, and food for her and the family. This sweet family consists of her older sister, 2 brothers, daughter, and mother. The family is struggling since August to find housing that is large enough to comfortably accommodate everyone. They are also struggling to have the school-age children in one steady school. A familiar set of classmates, teachers, and routine would improve the lives of this family tremendously. This would also prevent disorganization and chaos. The highlighted young lady is struggling to look for employment and care for her preschool age daughter. She has a brilliant idea of participating in online studies. Her studies brought curiosity to our online educational services. She is a very motivated and active student. The knowledge she is obtaining is leading closer to the goal of obtaining adequate housing.

SherrilTree, review

April 4, 2013

We enjoy working with the muscles and ligaments of tree climbers, but we want you to be careful with your pole saw and harness climbing.

Today, operating in the same small town it was born in, Greensboro, North Carolina, SherrillTree is a business that is all about connecting tree enthusiasts with top quality gear at great prices. Primarily they provide arboricultural products to the tree care profession but SherrillTree also connects quite frequently with other tree-climbing enthusiasts including educators, scientists and recreational climbers.

Kids are great

October 21, 2011

Guest post by Jewel Cole

My kids are the most important thing in the world to me and when we moved into this big old house I got more scared than ever to leave them home by themselves. I know it sounds dumb but at their age there’s already so much they can get into and living all the way out on a farmdidn’t exactly make me feel safe about strangers coming by. I talked to my husband about some Home Security Familyplans I had seen online and he agreed to get one. At least now I know when they’re coming in and out of the house and that if someone unauthorized comes in the alarm will go off! I know I’m probably being overprotective mother but I just worry about them and want to make sure they’ve got everything they need. I would never forgive myself if something happened to them because we moved all the way out here to the middle of nowhere and didn’t take the necessary steps to protect them, you know? That’s the biggest fear.

Knots in my back, part 2

September 16, 2011

The therapist wanted me to get a series of massage treatment and I agreed. Due to conflicts in her and my schedule, we were not able to go past the first massage session. Surprisingly, I felt much better after the first session. My back just about completely healed even without the sessions to come. It is fantastic what a therapist can do to help my back. Even more fantastic is that it can happen without prescription medications.

Aromatherapy, comment

June 23, 2011

Again Aromatherapy has wide variety of application it is easy and fairly acceptable to use in all kind of setting below research published in complementary and Alternative medicine is another good example of this wonderful and effective therapy we need to just remember that essential oils can be irritant to the skin when used in massage or bath tubs so make sure to use small amount at first and no more than2% of essential oil to the carrier oil.:

Abstract
Workplace stress-related illness is a serious issue, and consequently many stress reduction methods have been investigated. Aromatherapy is especially for populations that work under high stress. Elementary school teachers are a high-stress working population in Taiwan. In this study, fifty-four elementary school teachers were recruited to evaluate aromatherapy performance on stress reduction. Bergamot essential oil was used for aromatherapy spray for 10 minutes. Blood pressure and autonomic nervous system parameters were recorded 5 minutes before and after the application of the aroma spray. Results showed that there were significant decreases in blood pressure, heart rate, LF power percentage, and LF/HF while there were increases in heart rate variability and HF power percentage (P < .001(∗∗∗)) after application of the aromatherapy spray. Further analysis was investigated by dividing subjects into three background variables (position variables, age variables, gender variables) and anxiety degree groups. All parameters were significantly different for most subgroups, except for the substitute teachers and the light-anxiety group. Parasympathetic nervous system activation was measured after aromatherapy in this study. It encouraged further study for other stress working population by aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy, comment

June 22, 2011

Aromatherapy has been around for thousands of years as the tiny molecules of the essential oils enter the nose they travel after absorption in the mucus in to the blood stream and all over the body, and this research below is another indication of many use of aromatherapy:

Abstract
Objectives  To evaluate the effects of the aroma of essential oil of lavender against placebo on subjects’ pain perceptions and levels of anxiety when undergoing elective cosmetic facial injections of botulinum toxin type A (BOTOX(®) COSMETIC) for the correction of glabellar wrinkles. Methods  Subjects (N = 30) who had not previously received any cosmetic facial injections were randomized to essential oil of lavender aroma exposure or to placebo during elective cosmetic facial injections of BOTOX(®) (12 U) for the correction of glabellar wrinkles. Evaluations of subjects’ pain perceptions and levels of anxiety assessed by the Spielberger State-Trait Anxiety Inventory, heart rate (HR), and blood pressure (BP) measurements were taken at baseline, before, and after injections. Results  Subjects exposed to essential lavender oil showed a significant reduction in HR after the injection as compared to the pre-injection HR. Subjects exposed to the placebo did not show any significant difference in BP or HR between pre-injection and postinjection. Conclusions  Although essential oil of lavender did not have an effect on the subjects’ perception of pain during a facial injection, subjects showed significant increases in parasympathetic activity when exposed to the lavender aroma. Lavender aromatherapy has the potential to ease anxiety in patients undergoing minimally invasive facial cosmetic procedures.

There are many ways one can use the aroma therapy, it can be used by message in to the skin some times combining different oil depending what is the reason for therapy, sometimes aromatherapy can be used by adding few drops of essential oils in to the bath top full of warm water and staying soaked in there for a while for example if one like to go and face the day the require lots of energy it will be good to add few drops of Black paper and juniper in the water (6-10 drops) it has very uplifting affect. At night for relaxing and have a good night sleep you can use 2 part chamomile,2 part lavender and 2 part roses. Another way of using aromatherapy is adding the essential oil or the leaves in to the steaming water for example one can used lavender to relive anxiety by  having few drops in to a bowel od steaming water and have a towel over your head  so you can trap the steam and inhale 10-15 minutes. It is also great way of using essential oils that are good for completions that way.

Chiropractic Adjustments, comment

May 12, 2011

I totally disagree with Agency for Health Care Policy and Research. There are other drugless treatments available for the initial pain in the low back. They include massage therapy, hydrotherapy, wax therapy, and exercise therapy. The list can go on further. I would dare say that massage therapy is used more than chiropractic adjustments for initial low back pain within the United States. If anyone has research to prove me wrong, please show me.

Chiropractic Adjustments
With approximately 15 million patients annually, chiropractic is now America’s second largest health care system. Translating to “done with the hands,” chiropractic therapy uses physical manipulation of the spine and joints to relieve pain, decompress nerves and return positive energy to the body. Chiropractic adjustments help prevent wear and tear of the joints by maintaining their proper positioning and decreases scar tissue formation after injury. The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research endorses chiropractic therapy as the only, safe and effective, drugless form of initial treatment for low back pain. Because the spinal column acts like a switchboard for the nervous system, proper alignment is essential for good health.

A Great Change

May 10, 2011

Guest post written by Chris Farson

Moving to South Virgina was a difficult change for my family. My wife has lived in one state her whole life and my kids are pretty young and had to leave their friends and the area they grew up in. We came down here because my mother and father are from this state. Now that they are a little older, they have had some health issues and I need to be closer to them so that I can help them out. They have been the best parents a guy could ask for, and they were always there for me. The least I can do is be closer to them.

I’ve already helped them with a few things. The other day I took my dad to get a free hearing test in a Virginia MiracleEar center. I helped my mother get to an annual doctor’s appointment, and I helped both of them move some things out of their home. While I know that I did the right thing, I hope my family learns to love this state. It’s going to be a big change, but I think it will be for the best.

Detoxification, comment

April 6, 2011

I use massage therapy to assist with a detoxification process. This combination is enjoyed and useful by many of my clients. What type of water flush is to be used in the article Detoxification, comment is my question. I use water in multiple sessions for the colon flush, oral/gastrointestinal flush, and/or external skin flush in a shower.

Title: Detoxification, comment
I agree that we need to focus on lymph and blood also, not just the liver and colon. There are several ways to accomplish this such as massage therapy with large water flush afterwards to help with the toxins that are mobilized during the massage. There are also many botanicals that work on restoring/cleaning the blood. Even yet another way that is commonly forgotten is through the skin. I always become alarmed when someone tells me they don’t sweat much anymore. I get this mental image that everything is blocked up inside not just pores. I always tell them they need to promote sweating to help rid themselves of toxins, especially plastic and dioxins that build up so much from our environment. I further recommend that they first off stop using anti-perspirants that stop this process. I also recommend they try botanicals and hydrotherapy that promote diuresis and diaphoresis like dandelion and nettles and increase their water intake tremendously. If that does do enough there is the far infrared sauna with high temperatures that can be tolerated by even clients with lung and heart disease and promote the removal of many toxins. Of course we are not to forget ways to rid our bodies of heavy metals that can build up and cause illness like the use of increased fiber to decrease transit time in the gut and chelating agents both orally (if not severe or IV EDTA for those with severe heavy metal poisoning. All in all, detoxification warrants our attention to assure our bodies are functioning at optimal levels and to prevent future illness with the ever increasing toxic load from our environment.

Title: Detoxification
Detoxification refers to the elimination of poisons or toxins. Detoxification programs include a vast variety of treatments aimed at getting rid of body toxins and improving health. Many organs in the body such as liver, lungs, kidneys, gastrointestinal tract, and skin all work to eliminate toxins that we take in. These organs detoxify toxins in a perfect manner. However, the huge amounts of today’s environmental contaminants attacking the immune system and it would be too tough to challenge for these detoxifying organs to eliminate the toxins and do their jobs. The toxins remain in our bodies and accumulating each day.

When the food we eat and the water we drink leave the stomach, they enter the small intestine where they mix with digestive enzymes. These enzymes break down the food’s fats, proteins, and carbohydrates into simple compounds. Some of these simple compounds go to the liver to be metabolized. Others are carried away by the lymph, an important part of the immune system. What’s left travels on through the large intestine, or colon, where water is removed and bowel movements are formed.

But if toxins in the food we eat and the water we drink cannot be destroyed by the digestive enzymes, or detoxified by the liver, or eliminated by the immune system, they begin to build up. As these toxins accumulate, they will affect every part of our body: slow our metabolism, rob us of energy, reduce our immunity, and can even lead to serious chronic illness. Therefore, the body needs a serious method of cleansing system.

Most detoxification supplements focus only on the liver and colon. That’s because significant amounts of our body’s own detoxification method happens in these important digestive organs. However, the only way to make sure that detoxification is truly successful, is to cleanse the whole body. Therefore, the detoxification of the blood and lymph considered very important. These two organs considered very important in nourish and protect the liver, colon, and every other organ, tissue, and cell. If toxins are present in blood or lymph, every organ, tissue, and cell will be exposed to these toxins and contaminants, too.

Detoxifying the colon and liver without cleansing the blood and lymph is considered nearly nothing. Therefore, in order to have the best result for detoxification program both organs and the blood and the lymph system must be in attention for detoxification plan. In this way we expect that the body working in its best performance.
