End Migraines & Headaches using Herbs, Spices, Seeds & Nuts (Part 1)

May 4, 2016 by stas | No Comments | Filed in Health

Headaches Begone!

This chapter is an extract from book: Headaches Begone! A Systemic Approach To Healing Your Headaches.

Chapter 8. End Migraines & Headaches using Herbs, Spices, Seeds & Nuts

In this chapter, you will discover that Mother Nature has an incredible amount of plant-based solutions to help with any type of headache. I could probably write multiple tomes of just herbal solutions for migraines and headaches, as there are literally hundreds of such helpful plants out there.

Before diving into the specific herbs, let’s talk first about the different kinds of preparations you can expect to find in the herbal medicine chest.

Different Types of Herbal Preparations

When working with herbs, you need to first understand which preparations have the best influence on your body. Herbal infusions, decoctions, tinctures, essential oils should be considered first since they provide the best absorption of the plant essence and therefore have the best healing effect on your body. Herbs whose essence hasn’t been extracted, especially in pill forms, should be considered last, as you’d probably need to take a lot more of those to receive the same benefits, and your body will need to work extra hard to do the processing work.

How To Surely Get To A Desired State Using An Extremely Simple Resonance Method

January 18, 2016 by stas | No Comments | Filed in Inspirational, Metaphysical

aura resonance

Often we find ourselves stuck in a certain state/feeling and we struggle to get unstuck and move to a different, better state. There are many ways one could approach this challenge. This writing is to share a lazy man’s method of getting to the desired state that guarantees the accomplishment without doing much work.

The method involves the principle of resonance. You may have heard how striking one tuning fork causes the unstruck tuning fork to start emitting the same sound. Or how bridges used to collapse when the wind or a group of marching soldiers triggered a mechanical resonance. Or how several unsynchronized metronomes synchronize themselves in a matter of seconds:

Our body and mind follow the same vibrational principles and we can change our internal state by simply surrounding ourselves with the kind of vibration that we aspire to. You may have heard the saying: “if you want to become a millionaire, start hanging out with millionaires”. And this same principle works in any area of your life.  It works for both – positive and negative states. You need to surround yourself with people whose vibration will carry you to become like one them. Except it could be a lot of hard work to find such people, and once found – getting them to want you to be around.

Good and Bad Bike Seats – Scientific Studies on Cycling-Related Sexual Dysfunctions

January 7, 2016 by stas | No Comments | Filed in Health, Sexual, Sport

Bad Sex Bicycle SeatIf you read my book Don’t Let Your Bike Seat Ruin Your Sex Life – Ergonomic Bike Seats And Practical Pointers That Could Save Your Sex Life you will discover that you should care much less about the kind of bike you ride, and much more about just one of its parts – the bike seat. This is because a bad-fitting bike seat could affect your sex-life. In this article I’ll share the scientific studies on cycling-related sexual dysfunctions that I studied while writing the book. Unfortunately most of these studies aren’t free, unless you belong to an academic institution through which you most likely will be able to access all of them at no cost. As a result I can only list the abstracts here.

Very few studies are to be found when it comes to female cycling-related sexual dysfunctions. Most likely the scientists think that since women don’t need to get an erection to have sex, they are considered to be sexually functional at all times. Also it is much more challenging to measure female sexuality and perhaps that’s another reason why not many try to do that. But I did find several scientific studies on females and a few mixed-gender ones, so there is hope.

Why I Write By George Orwell and Other Authors

December 12, 2015 by stas | No Comments | Filed in Inspirational

George OrwellWhy I Write

By George Orwell

From a very early age, perhaps the age of five or six, I knew that when I grew up I should be a writer. Between the ages of about seventeen and twenty-four I tried to abandon this idea, but I did so with the consciousness that I was outraging my true nature and that sooner or later I should have to settle down and write books.

I was the middle child of three, but there was a gap of five years on either side, and I barely saw my father before I was eight. For this and other reasons I was somewhat lonely, and I soon developed disagreeable mannerisms which made me unpopular throughout my schooldays. I had the lonely child’s habit of making up stories and holding conversations with imaginary persons, and I think from the very start my literary ambitions were mixed up with the feeling of being isolated and undervalued. I knew that I had a facility with words and a power of facing unpleasant facts, and I felt that this created a sort of private world in which I could get my own back for my failure in everyday life. Nevertheless the volume of serious — i.e. seriously intended — writing which I produced all through my childhood and boyhood would not amount to half a dozen pages. I wrote my first poem at the age of four or five, my mother taking it down to dictation. I cannot remember anything about it except that it was about a tiger and the tiger had ‘chair-like teeth’ — a good enough phrase, but I fancy the poem was a plagiarism of Blake’s ‘Tiger, Tiger’. At eleven, when the war or 1914-18 broke out, I wrote a patriotic poem which was printed in the local newspaper, as was another, two years later, on the death of Kitchener. From time to time, when I was a bit older, I wrote bad and usually unfinished ‘nature poems’ in the Georgian style. I also attempted a short story which was a ghastly failure. That was the total of the would-be serious work that I actually set down on paper during all those years. Read the rest of this entry »

Left Or Right Matters Not, Moving Forward Matters A Lot

December 8, 2015 by stas | No Comments | Filed in Emotional

“If you can’t fly, then run.
If you can’t run, then walk.
If you can’t walk, then crawl.
But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.”

— Martin Luther King Jr.

how to make a best choice
The worse situation to find yourself in is when something is happening that you don’t like, yet you don’t do anything to change the situation – you lament about it and suffer, but you make no move towards a resolution. It could be a relationship issue – a difficulty with your spouse, parent, child, boss, employee, family or neighbour’s pet. It could be an internal condition – health, mood, wants and desires. It could be an issue with the environment you live or work in – weather, location, era, universe, etc.

No matter what the situation is – there is always a choice. And that choice must be made or else you stay stuck and oh well, it’s not fun neither for you nor for others involved… In a short or a long run this stuckness/unresolved state usually brings on a decease, since your body is wise and it’ll try to signal to you that things have to change with perhaps some pain, some fatigue, some emotions, and if you don’t get the “gentle” physiological signals – it will bring the heavy artillery and force your removal from the situation, usually by making you very sick, bed-ridden or in extreme cases even kill you.

Free Your Sexuality and Harmony Will Follow

December 3, 2015 by stas | No Comments | Filed in Sexual

husband-wifeThere is a lot of research and study done to show that when one’s sexuality is repressed, it has a range of negative effects not only on the individual but on the whole society.

I have just finished reading “Tantric Pulsation – The Journey of Human Energy from Its Animal Roots to Its Spiritual Flowering” by Aneesha Dillon, where she writes:

“[…] Reich1 rejected his teacher’s thesis. While Freud saw sexual repression as necessary for civilization. Reich asserted that it is precisely this repression of sexual energy that prevents the creation of a truly civilized society in which people can be free from neurosis and naturally happy.

Sure Ways to Self-Realization according to Swami Satyananda Saraswati

September 24, 2015 by stas | No Comments | Filed in Spiritual

Meditation is the key to self-realization.  Most people think of meditation as sitting down with your eyes closed and chanting om, while moving the beads on their meditation mala. True meditation however is just a term that refers to a unique state of mind, and as long as this state can be achieved, you can do it while sitting with your eyes closed, opened, standing, running, having sex, gazing at a sunset, eating a meal, performing a martial arts and dancing.

Recently I picked up a 450-page tome written by Swami Satyananda Saraswati that gives a great insight into the variety of different meditation approaches. I was moved to share some of the insights from his book with you. The book is called Sure Ways to Self-Realization and was first published in 1980 and has been revised several times since then.

Swami Satyananda Saraswati was a disciple of the famous master Swami Sivananda. Swami Satyananda Saraswati founded the International Yoga Fellowship in 1963 and the Bihar School of Yoga in 1964. He published dozens of very valuable books on the various aspects of the science of Yoga, however this book is one of the few where he goes beyond traditional Yoga and introduces disciplines and methods practised in the world to achieve self-realization.

How to Receive Free Healing Prayers and Blessings for Yourself and Your Loved Ones

August 23, 2015 by stas | 2 Comments | Filed in Health, Metaphysical

BlessingsI’ve just discovered that there are quite a few kind individuals and organizations out there that offer free healing energy, prayers, and blessings to those in need (humans and even their pets). All you need to do is to submit the name of the recipient-in-need, and some also request their location in the world and email address. So if you or someone you know is going through a difficult time why not ask for help. The only cost is your time submitting those requests. Not bad. You have little to lose if it doesn’t work, but so much to gain if it does!

If you are in doubt that these offers would do any good please read Lynne McTaggart‘s “The Intention Experiment: Using Your Thoughts to Change Your Life and the World“.

Please note that some of the free offers found online have strings attached as they require you to disclose a lot of personal information such as full address and phone number, and some require you to fill out a form with 20 fields – seriously? That sounds very dubious to me and while I haven’t proceeded with those offers to validate their sincerity — my hunch is that those free offers would potentially back-fire with the “kind” folks trying to sell you something and/or convert you into their belief system without you asking for it. So this list sticks to the true “free” offers, where all that’s asked is a person’s name and optionally their location. Some offers ask you for more information but only optionally and still allow you to remain relatively anonymous.

How to Fast For Health; Why Fasting Helps; How to Break the Fast

August 7, 2015 by stas | No Comments | Filed in Food, Health

Fasting For HealthThis is a little gem I found today in a 2nd hand book shop. Written by Hereward Carrington, Ph. D. at the beginning of the 19th century— it’s still totally relevant today. Scanned, OCRed, proofread and formatted for your easy reading by yours truly. Enjoy.

Nature’s Law Of Cure

Man does not live as long as he should: Most deaths are premature. We not only cut short our lives, but the years we do live are filled with sicknesses and diseases of all kinds. Statistics and common observation prove this. Something is wrong. I am convinced that this is chiefly due to our methods of living—our habits of life, and particularly our food habits. We eat the wrong kind of food, and too much of it. Over-eating is the great curse of humanity. It is responsible for many of the ills from which man suffers. Whenever we become ill, we are accustomed to take a “tonic” or a medicine, — under the false impression that health can be “bought in a bottle. ” Such is not the case. We become sick because there is a definite cause for our sickness, and in order to become well again we must remove this cause. This can usually be done by the simple methods described in this Little Blue Book.
