Vegetarianism – Veganism

VEGETARIANA“An invitation to look over the fence”

Vegetarianism is a more natural life style. People eat food only of plant origin, and thus health benefits arise on all levels. Vegan people not only do not consume food of animal origin, but also do not use any by-product of animal origin like cloths, honey, fish products. They do not tolerate animal abuse, neither any kind of exploitation and they respect the environment. There are many sub groups in both identities, but for the purpose of this short article, we will stick to the two main groups.
In this article we will briefly highlight the health and wellbeing consequences of either choice. For more info, please consult your Naturopath or Therapist and specialised shops and literature.

Gofio – an old but healthy food component.

MOLINO ANTIGUOThe roasted grain – Gofio – has its origin thousands of years ago. By roasting the grain before milling, one can destroy mould and mould toxins, allowing poorly stored grain still to be used. The flavour will improve because more complex sugars are being formed through the roasting process. Furthermore the higher roasting temperatures will partly break down starch and protein compounds and thus make it more digestible.

The Acid – Base balance in our body.

ALIMENTOS PARA BAJAR ESTRESOur blood has a certain acid/base balanced level and this level in the plasma is expressed as a pH value. The normal range is 7,35 – 7,45. This difference in value might look small and thus unimportant, but our body is very sensitive to deviations of pH. Outside this narrow range of pH, proteins will denature, digested and enzymes will lose their function. Extreme deviations will even cause death.

Evolution, Health and Synthetic Chemistry.

wallpapers-hd-al-azar-vol-I-34It took nature 4 billion years to come to an almost well-balanced equilibrium between all living organisms and their environment. More, all living organisms have been developed and thrive by the influence their environment is putting upon them. All living creatures – and in fact also non-living matter like minerals, etc – always have been and still will be influenced by chemicals from the environment. This interaction is the most fundamental and inevitable element in daily life and in the evolution of all – living creatures and non-living matter. Except cataclysmic events, all creatures – present and past – are the result of this slow-moving interaction that started some 4 billion years ago: Evolution by slow but steady interaction.
Only in the last 3 generations of human presence we succeeded to develop and proliferate tens of thousands of new chemicals into our environment that unavoidably will be absorbed by all living organisms, humans included.

Modern Industrial Food.

fastfoodHow to prevent its negative effects.
Bad and imbalanced nutrition behaviour with a high content in saturated fats, refined and industrially prepared products with lots of additives like preservatives, stabilizers and dyestuffs, can lead to long-term health problems. Equally stress, lack of movement, a high consumption of alcohol, tobacco, sugar, coffee, medicines, lack of quality sleep, radiation, etc will lead to premature ageing due to the generation of free radicals in our body.
What can we do about this?

Micro-immune therapy (MIT)

virus1Micro-immune therapy (MIT) - a bridge between complementary and conventional medicine of the 21st century. The MIT uses highly diluted immune specific substances - which are common to our own body - like Cytokines and specific nucleic acids, etc to communicate specific information to our immune system. In this way a defective immune system will be allowed to react efficiently and in a natural way upon a deficiency.
MIT not only is an innovative, side-effect-free therapy concept for partly complex diseases, but also provides a new perspective into the knowledge about patho-psychologic links between certain kinds of diseases. The well-defined interpretation of specified lab parameters according to the latest findings in immunology helps the diagnosis and the healing control.
The MIT will target investigations about the actual immune status (population of lymphocytes, serum profile), fix the direction of the medical treatment and control its progress for many chronic diseases like infections by viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites; neuro-degenerative and hyper-proliferative diseases (tumors); as well as auto-immune diseases like rheumatics, LE (Lupus Erythematodes), CU (Colitis ulcerosa), MC (Morbus Crohn), Psorias, and on allergenic and a-topic diseases (Neuro-dermatitis, a-topic eczema, Bronchial asthma.

Ecologic Food - Why use it?

Pachamama_010_-_cutThe products that are grown from conventional agriculture suffer modifications in their organic composition due to a multitude of synthetic chemicals like insecticides, herbicides, growth promoters, etc. All those synthetic chemicals are not harmless, even in low amounts, neither their effects on short or long term and neither the combinations of individual chemicals or their metabolites in our body. According to many specialists a majority of degenerative illnesses are due to inappropriate food intake. Ecologic Agriculture can help to minimise those risks and it has been scientifically confirmed that eating ecologic products will increase our health.

E-Smoking – satisfaction without danger!?

Cigar-CleanE-smoking or Electr(on)ic smoking is a new way to quit smoking the traditional way and/or to keep enjoying the satisfaction of smoking, but without the evident dangers. The technology consists of 3 components: a battery, a cartridge and an atomizer. The atomizer uses electricity from the battery and creates super tiny particles of the products that are in the cartridge. The smoker inhales these particles which can have different tastes (tobacco, mint, apple, strawberry, etc) and gets the same feeling as if he/she would smoke a traditional cigarette.
The economics are positive too: you can save about 1.000,- euros per year when you smoke 1 pack of 20 per day. Many countries already allow it as an exception to the general ban on smoking in public areas.

The Primula Oil. (Onagra)

Foto_Onagra_d484-1iIt is called Primula oil and in spanish “Aceite de Onagra”. It contains a lot of Omega 6. The oil comes from pressed seeds from the Primula plant. The essential fatty acids in the oil stimulate our body to produce prostaglandins, which in turn are essential for the cell membranes of our body. The positive effects on our health are:

strengthening of our artery system, avoiding the formation of thrombosis, regulation of high blood pressure and reduction of cholesterol values.

54_SCIOARRIBASCIO means Scientific Conscious Interface Operations system. SCIO is a measuring system that connects to the human body and to the unconsciousness via an interface. Most of the body and mind processes run in the sub-consciousness domain. The human body consists of about 200 trillion body cells that have to be in balance. This requires a vast amount of information as well as steering mechanisms. In no way we could manage this amount of tasks in the conscious domain. These kinds of compensation mechanisms, damages, levels of exhaustion, faults etc that cannot be seen yet by clinical examination or that haven’t showed up yet as symptoms, can be made obvious with SCIO, under the condition that the sub-conscious does react.

The Human Body

Human_Body_-_IntroPicIn our previous article “The Real Material World” we invited the reader to get rid of “the conditioned consciousness” in order to be able to explore new ways to experience life. In this article, we will try to provide the reader some refreshing insights about our own body, its functioning and how to get in harmony with it.

Our body is believed to consist of molecules – matter – that swirls around due to an unknown cause! And that the outcome of this is our consciousness! Meaningful thoughts, feelings, desires, emotions, passion, love, hate, sin, enlightenment, etc all are a result of bumping molecules. Everything seems to be a staggering waltz of molecules!

Our body consists of 70 to 80 billion cells and all of them are constantly busy in their specific domain. This results in 100.000 bio-chemical reactions in our body per second! Did you know that our body produces 20 million blood cells per minute? And that it produces 50 million cells per second? Our brain processes 40 billion info-bits per second and our consciousness is registering only 2000 info-bits per second. We do have about 60.000 thoughts per day and of only 2.000 of them we are conscious about.

maizOur body feeds itself with “food”, that is mixed up with liquids and gases, most commonly with “water and oxygen”. What would happen to us if it got transformed into toxins? So let’s have a look at what is called “Transgenic Food”. A transgenic or Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) is a living organism that has been artificially created by modifying its genetic sequence. The genetic manipulation consists of isolating some DNA sequences from a living organism (virus, bacteria, plant, animal or human) to include it into another living organism. For instance, the transgenic corn that is cultivated in Spain contains bacteria genes that are responsible for the production of an insecticide.

Let it go...

pareja-en-la-playaLet it go...

... and let it flow. Easier said than done. Anybody who made the step to Fuerteventura – or another foreign location – knows that letting go became a permanent companion, in the past and maybe today still is. You leave behind the usual life, family, friends, job, home and the surroundings that you got accustomed to for a journey into another world. Attitude is everything, as the challenges are multiple and complex, most of the time. Issues which you never anticipated emerge, situations that you never experienced will call upon you. And so it can happen that, when sticking to the usual procedures and structures, your journey might become rather bumpy. However whatever the outcome, you will have learned and built up experiences that never can be taken out of a book. Experience – whether positive or negative – remains an experience that will bring you further on to your path of life.

Being timid

A contraluz PIAccording to my memory, I grew up as a normal kid. However, I have been mobbed in school and couldn't get help from my parents. "Don't pay attention" or "it won't be that bad" they answered. This situation at school and the unbelief of my parents resulted in my shyness. The fear of being marked as "weird", led to my social isolation. I became a timid person. Then, after education, I have been mobbed at work to such an extent that, at occasions, I had suicidal thoughts. I wondered "Is this going to be my life?"
The moment that I really hit the bottom of my misery, at the age of 27, I met my future wife. She invited me for a drink and I remember that I was very silent, being afraid to make errors and stupid remarks. I couldn't imagine that a woman would be interested in me. My self-esteem was at such a low level. She became my first date.
Thanks to her perseverance, I slowly but steadily crawled out of the pit. She constantly mentioned to me that I had a lot to offer and that I was a loving person.

Relationships: The dynamics of Modern Relationships - a sketch.

relationships-10Modern relationships differ from “older” ones in the way that nowadays people can be more open about their preferences and expectations. Females enjoy more freedom in most western societies and this has an important influence on their self-consciousness and ego. The “romantic ideal” of life-time relationships is – slowly but steadily – transformed into a more pragmatic attitude towards partnerships. Discovery of one self within a fixed relationship and redefinition of expectations and loyalty becomes an important topic to youngsters and older partners. The search about the (new) basics of life is also guided by components of the far-eastern culture. Respect, openness and friendship seem to be the driving forces in modern relationships.

Freedom of Mind - The Fuerteventura Experiment.

brillo_corporalThe mind or ego, in its conscious or unconscious state, is a genial development of nature. It has helped all living species to take care of themselves and to survive most daily threats, over millions of years. Evolution as we know it is unthinkable without the assistance of mind, regardless what state.
However, modern mankind in general is the first creature on this planet that has the possibility of not having to stand up to life-threatening situations everyday. Even more, modern mankind is the first creature on this planet that has the luxury to relax over a longer period of time without suffering negative consequences.

Conflicting Partners

MALA relationship is not always a rose garden, nor should it be a constant warzone. However, living together creates conflicts. There are many reasons for this such as genetics, hormones and external elements. People do evaluate and interpret events in a different way and they do act accordingly different. Hidden behind any conflict are wishes, expectations and habits that were known by you before or that were hidden in your subconscious mind. You got to know them for sure only when exposed during a conflict.

Relaxing Advice

SPIRITUALITYAre you nervous and can't you get to sleep?
Possible causes for insomnia are stress, daily preoccupations, anxiety, depression, going to bed at different times or very late.

What if?

AMANECER1Some time ago during this year, I was overlooking the most significant events of the last couple of months and wondered what would be the meaning of them. Would they just be randomly produced as components of a mathematical probability, or would they be "organised" as part of a "higher plan" in order to invite us to re-think about and re-act on our "proven" concepts?  With "higher plan" I do not necessarily mean the standard idea of a Higher Force, but merely the creation of situations by our actual behaviour that make those events almost unavoidable.
