[www.keralites.net] The Best Home Remedy For Insomnia

 

The Best Home Remedies for Insomnia
by: Junji Takano

Sleeping problems does not only trouble the elderly but young people as well. Millions of people worldwide suffer from various sleeping disorders and insomnia is one of the most common sleeping complaints.
Many people try to ignore this condition even though it is responsible for their many sleepless nights. Below are the four major symptoms of insomnia:
1. Daytime drowsiness.
2. Difficulty in going to sleep.
3. Frequent waking at night.
4. Unable to go back to sleep after waking in the middle of the night.
In this article, we'll reveal to you the latest secrets behind insomnia, why it occurs, and how you can treat it with the best home remedies.
## "Stimulation of Reptilian Brain" Prevents Deep Sleep!
Some people are unaware that they have an insomnia problem and may experience daytime fatigue even after sleeping for 7-8 hours straight. Latest studies show that one of the major factors that contribute to this daytime tiredness after waking up in the morning is the "stimulation of the reptilian brain during sleep".
The "reptilian brain" refers to the part of the brain that controls instinct and is common in birds and mammals. It has a definite control over sleeping behaviors. Apparently, increased stress and anxiety activates the reptilian brain, making it impossible to achieve a deep sleep.
EEG (Electroencephalography) tests show that some insomnia patients appear to wake up during the night frequently for several seconds totally unaware. As a result, the sleep is intermittent and the body cannot reach deep sleep.
Therefore, calming your reptilian brain is one of the important points in getting a good night sleep.
## Breaking the Vicious Cycle a??g Do not go to bed if you are not sleepy!
Most people will try to eliminate insomnia by attempting to go to bed early, but it appears that this is contradictory and is the archenemy of sleep!
Sleeping early today because you were not able to sleep well yesterday won't treat insomnia. Doing this often will only increase your stress and the chance that you'll awaken your reptilian brain increases, too. All of these will prevent your body from entering deep sleep.
To break this vicious cycle, you need to do these two things:
1. Stop worrying of when you should go to bed. The more worried you are about not sleeping, the worse your insomnia will be.
2. Only go to bed once you start to feel sleepy. By doing so, you may feel anxious at first as you will get less sleep. But the most important thing is quality of sleep is better than quantity.
We often hear that "7-8 hours of sleep time is ideal", but this does not apply fully in the case of elderly individuals who have lower physical activity. There are individual differences, so it's possible that six hours of sleep is also enough.
Increasing your time spent in bed just won't do you any good especially if you suffer from insomnia as you'll most likely just end up lying down the entire night instead of sleeping. Your sleep will simply become shallower and you'll be counterproductive.
## Two Secret Home Remedies to Induce Deep Sleep!
1. Use a Sleep Diary
Sleep diary is being utilized even by medical institutions as a part of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia as it can produce great results. The use of sleep diary will help you learn all your sleeping patterns and habits. It is done by writing down information such as:
- time you went to bed
- time you woke up
- how much time you spend in not being able to sleep in bed (and at what time)
- total sleep time
You can download this sample of a sleep diary. Print it out and use it or create your own sleep diary. Record all information in the sleep diary for 1-2 weeks.
By recording your sleeping patterns every day, you'll be able to determine the best time zone for you to sleep. You'll also be able to figure out the types of daytime activities that interfere with your sleeping behaviors.
2. Muscle Relaxation Method
The second secret home remedy to treat insomnia is to calm the reptilian brain through "muscle relaxation". With muscle relaxation, you tense a group of muscles as you breathe in, and relax them as you breathe out. Doing this repeatedly will help calm or sooth the reptilian brain and induces pleasant drowsiness.
Below are two effective muscle relaxation techniques that can help counter insomnia and calms the reptilian brain.
Note: Sit on a chair, relaxed, and close your eyes. Don't put too much pressure to your spinal column.
- Muscle Relaxation Using the Palm of Your Hand
1. Place both of your hands on top of your thighs and slowly clench your fist as tightly as you can. Hold for 10 seconds.
2. Relax and release the tension at once.
3. Stay in this relaxed state for 20 seconds.
4. Concentrate on the tension flowing away and the way your hands feel as it becomes relaxed.
5. Repeat steps 1 to 4 for two times. Follow the same sequence of muscle tension and release, and try not to tense other muscles.
- Muscle Relaxation Using the Upper Body
1. Raise your shoulders, tighten your arms, and clench your fist while pressing it against your chest. This time, tighten your back muscles and abdominal muscles, too. Hold for 10 seconds.
2. Relax and release the tension at once.
3. Stay in this relaxed state for 20 seconds.
4. Concentrate on the tension flowing away and the way your muscles feel as they become relaxed.
5. Repeat steps 1-4 for two times. Follow the same sequence of muscle tension and release, and try not to tense muscles other than your upper body.
## PYRO-ENERGEN Electrostatic Therapy Machine for Insomnia
Taking some herbs, medications, and caffeine may trigger mild insomnia and the only way to prevent this sleeplessness is to stop taking these things altogether.
But some severe chronic cases of insomnia have an unknown cause or can also be caused by rheumatoid arthritis and other underlying health conditions that one may not know about. We strongly believe that this has something to do with our theory of negative energy. Because of this, many people using the PYRO-ENERGEN electrostatic therapy machine are getting relief from countless sleepless nights after just a few days of therapy sessions.

Keep Walking.....
The Organs of your body have their sensory touches at the bottom of your foot,
if you massage these points you will find relief from aches and pains
as you can see the heart is on the left foot.
Typically they are shown as points and arrows to show which organ it connects to.
It is indeed correct since the nerves connected to these organs terminate here.
This is covered in great details in Acupressure studies
God created our body so well.
He made us walk so that we will always be pressing these pressure points and thus
keeping these organs activated at all times.
So, keep walking..

[www.keralites.net] 8 Effective cold prevention strategies

 

8 Effective Cold Prevention Strategies
1. Wash your hands - The world we live in is filled with viruses and bacteria that can make us ill. Your hands are no exceptions. Wash your hands often to keep them clean. If you cannot wash them, at least use some hand sanitizer, such as Purel.
2. Drink hot fluids, especially in the morning - The rhinovirus incubates in the back of the throat and spreads in the upper respiratory area because it's cooler than the body temperature. Rhinovirus can't survive at 98.6 (hence it doesn't travel far down into the bronchi or the lungs). By drinking hot fluid (such as hot tea and lemon) you can prevent the virus from incubating.
3. Keep your hands out of your face - We have already discussed the germs and viruses on your hands. You cannot wash them continuously, so in between washings keep your hands out of your face. Your face is an open portal to your insides. Keep the germs away from your portal.
{mosgoogle left}4. Drink water - Drinking more water is my answer to everything. Water will help clean out your body and keep it clean. It will also keep your body functioning at 100%. You should drink at least (eight) 8oz glasses of water everyday. This will also help you lose weight.
5. Eat your fruits and vegetables - There are phytochemicals and antioxidants in fruits and vegetables that can help strengthen your immune system and prevent diseases. You should eat at least four servings of vegetables and two servings of fruits every day.
6. Multivitamins - If you are not eating all of your fruit and vegetable servings, you should take a multivitamin to ensure you are getting all of the vitamins your body needs to function properly. Take a simple one-a-day multivitamin everyday.
7. Stay warm - Being cold weakens your immune system and makes your body more susceptible to illness. Look at the day's temperature at weather.com before leaving your home. Wear layers in and out of your home when it is cold.
8. Relax and rest - Stress weakens your immune system. You can reduce your stress levels by relaxing and getting more sleep. Sleep is essential to maintaining a healthy immune system. Sleep will also boost your recovery time if you become ill.
Getting a cold can derail your nutrition and activity plans. However, if you follow the strategies I laid out for you, you can prevent this from happening.

[www.keralites.net] Vimla Kaul The 81-year-old Indian teacher still transforming lives

 


Vimla Kaul The 81-year-old Indian teacher still transforming lives
Vimla Kaul with a student of Guldasta

Vimla Kaul has not stopped working since she retired as a government school teacher 20 years ago. The 81-year-old educates under-privileged children in India's capital Delhi.

Twelve of them, 11 boys and one girl, are sitting on the floor of a tiny room, where colourful posters bravely attempt to cover the stains and patches on the walls. They immediately begin chanting the English alphabet - "A for Apricot, B for Blackberry" - fruits that many of them are unlikely to have seen, let alone eaten.

All the children are from around the area - their parents mostly work as maids or drivers, servicing the middle class housing colony across the road.

Guldasta's students are taught English, science, maths and environment. It also owns one computer and offers extra-curricular activities like yoga, dance and drill.

Students of Guldasta

"My husband and I had both just retired. We decided to do something charitable, but were not quite sure what."

That question was answered during a visit to the village of Madanpur Khadar, an hour away from Delhi.

A school is born

As the couple sat at the village centre with some elders, discussing their problems, they were continually distracted by the half-naked, boisterous children running around.

"We had brought biscuits for them as part of a Rotary Club drive. But one woman told me, 'giving them to eat is all very well, but what you should do is teach them how to get their own food.' That stuck with me."

And that was when the idea for a school was born.

So she moved to a park inside the complex, but was forced out by neighbours who complained that the children were too noisy. She tried talking to them but finally moved to the municipal park after one woman went on a hunger strike.

They operated out of there for nearly 10 years, until an NGO discovered and adopted the school. This enabled them to finally rent the building to house it.

"There is an inherent selfishness among our class that don't want to see these people rise. Where will their maids come from otherwise?" she says.

The stories of many of her students, she says, are heart-rending.

"I had one very bright young student who was pulled out because her mother wanted her to help clean houses to make more money. That was the end of her education," she says. Others come without food because their parents don't have the time, or can't afford it.

But others have happier stories.

Two of her students are teaching at Guldasta now, one of them with a computer degree. Another has found work as a mechanic. Yet another was working at a Chinese restaurant Mrs Kaul visited, where he proudly insisted that she would not pay for her meal that day.

"If I can lift even one child out of their circumstances, that's enough for me. But mostly, I want to give them a childhood. Some happy memories that they can look back on later in life."
