As utterly ridiculous as this may sound, it points to a worryingly cavalier attitude toward safety in cosmetic procedures, whether surgical or not. A recent study found that 13% of people who'd had non-surgical procedures had allowed an unqualified individual to perform the procedure.
GK Chesterton, the great author who inspired Gandhi to end British colonial rule in India, observed: "I owe my success to having listened respectfull...
I've never ridden a bike in the nude and this is because I am very wary of hitting a bump too hard and introducing the saddle to my prostate. Some people do it on a yearly basis, and they love it. Four weeks are dedicated to the obscure holiday. Those four weeks are World Naked Bike Ride month.
If you've never been on a chemo ward, you'd be forgiven for thinking it would be full of people hooked up to machines, looking thin, grey, exhausted. And to a degree, you'd be right. We are all hooked up to machines. However, what you perhaps don't expect is the inspiration, comradeship, hope and laughter that spills from the room.
Sometimes chaos and manic woo woo is the most attractive thing in our lives. It is seemingly the driver that pushes us forward. We throw ourselves into turmoil for the sheer purpose of feeling something, experiencing something and, we hope, to make things change for the better.
Cancer treatment varies depending on the nature and progression of the disease. It can focus on eliminating cancer tumours and cells, slowing down or stabilising the spread of the disease.
I encourage my clients to indulge over the Christmas period because we are more concerned about what happens between New Year to Christmas, not Christmas to New Year.
A better plan then, may be what I encourage all of my training clients to do and that is lose some weight in anticipation that you may 'overeat' a little. That way you could enjoy some of what you fancy over the holidays and come through the whole experience weighing what you normally do.
Green juices, in particular, are highly potent because they have highly concentrated nutrients, explain Jay and Linda: "[They] are a high source of chlorophyll which metabolises oxygen in the bloodstream, purifying it and at the same time cleansing the kidneys, liver and urinary tract. Green juices also stimulate the peristaltic wave in the intestines and move the bowels."
Walking through the lobby at work, I spotted it immediately. Hanging, totally blasé, in the nook of a woman's arm. But it wasn't just the one. In fact, there were dozens of them, swinging casually from limbs.
What has not been investigated until now, was how wealth impacted on personality in taking drugs. Being surrounded by poverty and the availability of drugs also appears to be strongly predictive of taking up heroin and cocaine habits.
Celebrating a life can lighten the pain of loss - sharing special moments of meaning, private and public. Mixing numbness, heart break, tears of pain and the longing to hold, talk, see, hear the other just on more time with pride, joy and gratitude for what we have experienced with and because of the other, who has gone.
Pain creates tension in the body, which feeds back into the brain, which responds by turning up the 'volume' on its pain amplifiers, creating even more suffering.
Have you ever marvelled at how babies and young children exude pure trust in the world around them? It's worth remembering we were all like that once. But when I became curious about my own loss of trust story, I discovered I'd grown up with a lot of fear and negativity around me.
After age 30, we tend to lose lean tissue at an average of 5% per decade. The amount of fat on the other hand, goes up steadily and may rise at a much higher rate. The need to hold onto our lean tissue goes far beyond the desire for a bikini look body.
After doing a powerful process called The Path of Love I realised I had a lot of anger from past hurt and experiences in my life.
