The paradoxical commandments | Mind Acupuncture

Here's something for the idealists among us, and for those who might want to join our ranks:

The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.

Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.

Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.

Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.

Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.

Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.

Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.

Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.

Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.

Give the world the best you have anyway.

staying healthy in an increasingly complex world

Common "side" effects are - especially during the first two to three days: Low blood pressure and tiredness, and during the whole fasting time and 2-3 days afterwards an increased body odour and bad breath, signs of the increased detoxing. The experience of sustaining oneself without solid foods and independence is pretty cool already, but the knowledge that all that is possible simply because one has decided to do it, that's truly amazing.


Do you want more energy? | Health Acupuncture

If you feel you don't have enough energy to do all the things you want to do, have a close look at your spending habits: Nowadays "deficit spending" - spending money which one doesn't actually own but loan - is a widespread phenomenon, and the media suggest that it's a good idea. So take a moment to think about how you're spending your energy: Are you saving some for when things get rough, or are you constantly spending all you have.


If you're under treatment and it doesn't seem to help | Health

Unless you're with a certified miracle worker -- please forward me his or her details, I still need one in my network -- your body needs time and energy to heal. I expect a good healthcare provider to have enough documentation of your diagnosis, your symptoms and their severity that they can evaluate your progress.


How to avoid catching a cold | Health Acupuncture

The first signs of a typical cold are: Aversion to drafts, feeling chilly, sneezing or a runny nose and tightness around the upper back and shoulders. Be careful not to burn yourself with the hot air, and don't let the hairdryer's air inlet be obstructed by your shirt. Take your electric hair dryer, turn it on and use the hot air to warm that area of your shoulders and upper back.
