Feds finally release Burzynski cancer cure treatment

The medical powers-that-be may have finally given up the 40-year fight against a cancer-curing doctor, releasing a hold they had on his breakthrough discovery, "Antineoplastons," for Phase 3 clinical trials. 

The medical powers-that-be may have finally given up the 40-year fight against a cancer-curing doctor, releasing a hold they had on his breakthrough discovery, "Antineoplastons," for Phase 3 clinical trials.Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski. 

A hold that was placed on a remarkable breakthrough cancer treatment invented by Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski has finally been lifted by the FDA.

It should have been news that sent shock-waves throughout the industry, so large that even the establishment’s media could not ignore them. Spilling out onto every radio and news station in the country, if not the world.

But once again, another huge victory against the medical establishment for a Houston-based doctor that has been using a breakthrough technology he invented to literally cure cancer on many occasions, who for all-intents-and-purposes should be a household name by now and an easy Nobel Prize winner, is instead nowhere to be found, as if it never even happened.

That’s because Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski and his cancer-curing discovery, “Antineoplastons,” including a remarkable, relatively new gene-targeted therapy, threatens the very way of life to which the Western medical cancer and sick-care industry has become accustom. Raking in billions a year off of the desperate backs of people suffering from debilitating and deadly diseases in which the Western medical industry does not truly want to find a cure.

Facebook offers explanation for controversial News Feed psychology experiment

"Our goal was never to upset anyone."

 

Facebook caused a stir over the weekend with the revelation that it had been altering the content of some users' News Feeds in an attempt to study the psychology behind what causes people to post emotional material. Now Adam Kramer, Facebook data scientist and co-author of the study, has posted an explanation of the motivation behind the research, which he says serves as Facebook's statement on the matter.

"The reason we did this research is because we care about the emotional impact of Facebook and the people that use our product," says Kramer. "We felt that it was important to investigate the common worry that seeing friends post positive content leads to people feeling negative or left out. At the same time, we were concerned that exposure to friends' negativity might lead people to avoid visiting Facebook."

In hindsight, the research benefits of the paper may not have justified all of this anxiety.

Kramer notes that the study affected 0.04 percent of users over one week in 2012, though at Facebook's scale that covers hundreds of thousands of people. The study's findings contradicted conventional wisdom, according to the scientist, as seeing positive emotions on Facebook was found to encourage similarly positive content. In a separate statement provided to The Guardian, Facebook said the research was designed to "improve our services and to make the content people see on Facebook as relevant and engaging as possible."

Otherworldly Photos of Mysterious Megalithic Stones

Calanais Stone Alignment, Isle of Lewis, Scotland, 2005. 

Stonehenge may be the most famous prehistoric monument, but it’s by no means the only one. In 2003, photographer Barbara Yoshida was on a trip to Scotland when she photographed the Ring of Brodgar, a circle of standing stones in the Orkney Islands. She spent the next 10 years photographing lesser-known and rarely photographed megalithic stones in more than 15 countries and on three continents. Her photographs will soon be published in the book, Moon Viewing: Megaliths by Moonlight. “I’m drawn to places that are spiritual and have a depth of mystery, that have a sense of timelessness and history. These stones were obviously set up for ritualistic purposes, and people have continued to interact with them over thousands of years and invested them with meaning and resonance,” Yoshida said. “They have enormous power and a presence that you can feel when you're among them. We may not know much about the cultures that erected them, but this mystery is what draws me to them. I wanted to record my subjective perceptions and capture some of that mystery.”

This is the story of one woman's life-long interaction with beings from another world, and her journey to go beyond the fear to find meaning and purpose. In this book she explores the abduction experience and shares with you the three important things they insisted she learn.

"This is my story. I cannot prove any of it. For years I was encouraged to write about these experiences, but I resisted. This is not an easy story for me to write, and it might not be easy for you to read or believe. I understand that. . . This book is not only a recounting of my experiences but also the story of how I discovered that, like most things, it is possible to turn the worst thing in your life into something positive just by choosing to look at it from a different perspective." -from the author.

What a wild roller coaster ride of alien abduction and self-exploration. This is as true an account as one could possibly give of such extraordinary experiences. Sherry describes what she endured being repeatedly abducted by ETs but there is an extremely positive outcome. Decades after the first abductions Sherry’s perception of her experience shifts. No longer seeing herself as a victim, she focuses on the positive aspects of what she was taught during her interactions with the ETs. Once she looked beyond the distortion created by her visceral fear, she was aware of the depth of knowledge that was being imparted to her. This knowledge, like the ETs, originated from higher vibrational realms. It was being given to her for the benefit of humanity. Sherry explains the "3 Important Things to Know", which are concepts about which volumes of spiritual texts have been written.

B i o 

Sherry Wilde was living an idyllic life as a wife, mother and business owner until 1987 when her community experienced a UFO flap that was considered one of the most active in the world. No one could have ever guessed the unbelievable turn of events that would occur over the next 18-24 months as Sherry was forced to accept her involvement in a phenomenon that was totally unknown to her. Faced with the indisputable evidence that she was experiencing contact with extra-terrestrial beings was astonishing to this pragmatic and levelheaded woman of 37, but to learn her contact had been ongoing for her entire life almost pushed her over the edge. Sherry spent the next several years of her life trying to exonerate the experiences from her mind and did her best to return to a normal life, but when heavy contact started again in late 2009, after several years of relative peace, she could no longer ignore it. Inexplicably she found herself writing a book about the encounters as her memory opened up to the past events and the teachings these beings had imparted to her. Overcoming her fear and learning the truth of her involvement with these ultra-dimensional beings became her life goal. She now accepts the truth of these encounters and has cooperative contact on a regular basis with the beings she affectionately refers to as "her guys."

The National Betrayal of Alt Med Practitioner Dr. Harvey Bigelsen

The National Betrayal of Dr. Harvey



Just as the FDA and Codex are stripping away your ability to use nutritional supplements with therapeutic levels, so are your alternative practitioners being attacked in a vicious attempt to force them out, leaving you at the hands of an outdated medical model and Big Pharma.

We often hear the tremendous respect and gratitude for men and women in our armed forces. The ones who survived and the ones who were not as fortunate. They are considered by many to be the front-line defenders of our freedoms and our liberties. Often, though, they come home to find out that both their freedoms and their liberties are in jeopardy on home turf; their enemy is domestic, not foreign. They also find out that the respect and gratitude fade fast once back in the U.S.

Harvey Bigelsen, M.D. witnessed the Vietnam War from a viewpoint many of us would not wish on our worst enemy. His work as a trauma surgeon specializing as an Ophthalmologist allowed many to see family trees continue to flower. Dr. Bigelsen was on the front lines where triage was concerned, literally holding lives in his hands and in his quick, expertly trained, decision-making process. This impeccable medical judgment was service at the very highest level, no matter your perspective on war. He saved the lives of people who were sentenced to death and on death's door when they came to him. Legally.

Fast forward in the doctor's life past years of experience at the highest levels of healing and the highest levels of understanding the human body deepening his education and embracing other disciplines as time passed. Fast forward past four enlightening books he authored. You will inexplicably and inevitably arrive at the recent charges and confiscation that plague Dr. Bigelsen in his hometown of Nevada City, California. It is one of the most notorious cases of Nation turned traitor – the ultimate payback for years of dedicated service – namely betrayal at the hands of the medical mafia. His presumed weapon? Darkfield microscopes used to examine blood samples. His crime? A lot of menial accusations over nutritional supplement and homeopathic labeling that were not initiated by Dr. Bigelsen. Yet, he is facing jail for others' product labels ... a war hero turned criminal healer.

A Mysterious Shape Just Appeared on the Surface of Titan

 

Saturn's moon Titan is sort of like a bizarro version of Earth, an extraterrestrial tease that's home to lakes, rivers, rain, and wind. This combination of attributes means the would-be twin is host to a variety of landforms Earthlings might find familiar, including mountains and dunes rippling along the solid surfaces of a relatively smooth (uncratered) sphere. Titan is home to the only thick atmosphere so far observed on a natural satellite, along with the only stable surface bodies of liquid (lakes) observed on any celestial body outside of Earth itself. No matter that Titan's rivers and lakes are actually full of liquid methane and ethane and its surface temperature hovers around −179.2 °C, the moon is a playground for the Earth-bound imagination.

It helps that Titan also seems interested in playing along. Enter "Magic Island," a geologic object that's appeared, relatively suddenly, in recent images collected by NASA's Cassini spacecraft of the moon's second-largest lake Ligeia Mare. The blob, which in the images appears as a bonus blob off the lake's lower coast, is more technically referred to as a "transient object" and comes with a small array of perfectly reasonable explanations: seasonal climate changes kicking up extreme waves, bubbles from undersea gas releases, the thawing of undersea solid material, and-or the presence of suspended solids, like silt or mud, as might be found on a river delta on Earth. 

All of those explanations, however, would seem to be things we might have observed previously. The Magic Island images date from last summer (2013), while the spacecraft has been doing flybys of the moon since 2004. As of just a few days ago, June 18, Cassini has logged over 100 data-gathering passes, though not all of them targeting this particular body of water, of course. Researchers know enough about Titan to at least say their Magic Island is abnormal.

Why do all planets spin and orbit in the same direction?

solar system 

One great thing about astronomy is the variety of sights it can provide. Do you want to see a star nested inside another star? You can see that. How about thousands of galaxies all colliding in an event so monstrously large and violent that the human brain can’t possibly comprehend it? You can find that, too. But try looking within any one solar system — for instance: our own — and you’re bound to find an orderly system: eight little soldiers all marching in lock-step, spinning on their own internal axes in the same uniform direction. But if the solar system was formed by the mostly random accumulation of gasses and astronomical debris, how could we come to such an ordered state of affairs here in our time?

To see the answer, go find a spinning computer chair. To make the principle as visible as possible here, try to find two equally heavy objects and hold one in each hand. Hold them far out to your sides, then start spinning, holding the objects there. Get a good spin going, get a feel for the speed of it, then slowly, still spinning, bring your arms in to your chest. The closer those weights get to your body, the faster you will spin.

This is a principle called the moment of inertia, and it has two major implications. One: the distribution of mass in a system can exert some control over the spinning of that system. Two: the spinning of a system can exert some control over the distribution of mass inside it. This means that as, say, a cloud of gas and space dust destined to become our solar system contracts slowly due to gravity, the angular speed of that spinning system will increase. Put even more simply: as the solar system was first coming together, its parts all started rotating faster and faster.

Why the Path to Aliens, Ironically, Depends on Earth

Rio-tinto

Southwestern Spain's Rio Tinto flows roughly 60 miles to the Atlantic Ocean. The river is full of diverse extremophile microorganisms. Because of its similarities to Mars terrain, the Mars Astrobiology Research and Technology Experiment tested equipment for drilling on the planet, in 2005.  

Humanity is closer to discovering extraterrestrial life than we ever expected — or, at least, life that shares a different origin than anything we know on Earth.

Astrobiology isn't about chasing flying saucers, necessarily. Certainly, scientists search for origins of life on other planets, but astrobiology also uncovers new forms of Earth life we've never imagined before. The scientific tools to do so are advancing faster than ever, and as outer space travel increasingly becomes the domain of SpaceX and other private companies, NASA and foreign space agencies are focusing more resources on inner astrobiology. 

Specifically, the study of and uses for alien-like life on Earth. 

In 2010, geobiologist Felisa Wolfe-Simon's team found a strange form of "arsenic life" in California's Mono Lake. Unlike all other earthly life, it subsisted on the poisonous element arsenic instead of phosphorous. It was alien.

The science community raised serious questions about her team’s paper, encircling her and fellow authors in controversy. However, it was an unprecedented finding. Even if Wolfe-Simon and her group were wrong, their research helped pioneer a process to suss out microbial life not of this earth — on Earth.

Security Researchers Uncover The Tools Governments Use To Spy On Our Phones

 

Edward Snowden, whistleblower of the decade, has made it consistently clear that he didn’t trust cellphones. While he never described the methods governments and other miscreants used to crack into our handsets, he maintained that eavesdroppers could hear us even if the phone seemed off and everything on our devices was open to a dedicated hacker. But he never said how it was done.

Now we know… at least partially. The app used is called RCS/Galileo by an Italian company, The Hacking Team. The app allows for full control of the data on the phone and allows users to activate the microphone on Android, iOS, and Blackberry devices. In short, this is what Snowden feared.

10 Magical Effects Music Has On the Mind

Image

Every fan of music knows the tremendous power it can have over both thoughts and emotions. 

Great music can transform an ordinary day into something magical, even spiritual. It can provide solace, release, strong sensations and more. But music’s influence spreads further still: right up from our genetic code, through our thoughts and bodies and out into how we relate in groups.

1. Improve verbal IQ

Practicing the piano won’t just improve your musical abilities, it can also improve your visual and verbal skills.

A study of 8 to 11-year-olds found that, those who had extra-curricular music classes, developed higher verbal IQ, and visual abilities, in comparison to those with no musical training (Forgeard et al., 2008).

This shows the benefits of learning an instrument are not purely musical, but extend into cognition and visual perception.

2. Feeling the chills

Have you ever felt chills down your spine while listening to music? According to a study by Nusbaum and Silvia (2010), over 90% of us have.

How much you feel, though, depends on your personality. People who are high in one of the five personality dimensions called ‘openness to experience’, are likely to feel the most chills while listening to music.

In the study, people high in openness to experience were more likely to play a musical instrument, and more likely to rate music as important to them.

3. Active listening amps up happiness

If you’re not feeling the chills, perhaps you should try a little harder.

A recent study contradicts the old advice that actively trying to feel happier is useless.

In research by Ferguson and Sheldon (2013), participants who listened to upbeat classical compositions by Aaron Copland, while actively trying to feel happier, felt their moods lift more than those who passively listened to the music.

This suggests that engaging with music, rather than allowing it to wash over us, gives the experience extra emotional power.

A Mysterious Sound Is Driving People Insane — And Nobody Knows What's Causing It

a, mysterious, sound, is, driving, people, insane, —, and, nobody, knows, what's, causing, it, ,  

Dr. Glen MacPherson doesn't remember the first time he heard the sound. It may have started at the beginning of 2012, a dull, steady droning like that of a diesel engine idling down the street from his house in the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. A lecturer at the University of British Columbia and high school teacher of physics, mathematics and biology, months passed before MacPherson realized that the noise, which he'd previously dismissed as some background nuisance like car traffic or an airplane passing overhead, was something abnormal.

"Once I realized that this wasn't simply the ambient noise of living in my little corner of the world, I went through the typical stages and steps to try to isolate the sources," MacPherson told Mic. "I assumed it may be an electrical problem, so I shut off the mains to the entire house. It got louder. I went driving around my neighborhood looking for the source, and I noticed it was louder at night."

Exasperated, MacPherson turned his focus to scientific literature and pored over reports of the mysterious noise before coming across an article by University of Oklahoma geophysicist David Deming in the Journal of Scientific Exploration, a peer-reviewed academic journal devoted to exploring topics outside of mainstream science. "I almost dropped my laptop," says MacPherson. "I was sure that I was hearing the Hum."

"The Hum" refers to a mysterious sound heard in places around the world by a small fraction of a local population. It's characterized by a persistent and invasive low-frequency rumbling or droning noise often accompanied by vibrations. While reports of "unidentified humming sounds" pop up in scientific literature dating back to the 1830s, modern manifestations of the contemporary hum have been widely reported by national media in the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia since the early 1970s.

15 Things You Don’t Owe Anyone At All (Though You Think You Do)

ImageMany choices we make in life—ranging from what we do, to how we conduct ourselves, and who we interact with—are subject to prying questions and commentary from those around us. Family members, friends, and even total strangers, it often seems like everyone has an opinion on the things we do, no matter how small or insignificant those things might seem to us.

Sometimes people go so far as to ask you to explain yourself for the decisions or choices you make in your own life. You might feel obliged to respond, but some things are really no one else’s business and you don’t owe anyone an explanation at all for the following 15 things—though you think you do.

1. You don’t owe anyone an explanation for your living situation.

Whether you are cohabiting with your ex-boyfriend or ex-girlfriend, crashing in different motel rooms across the country, or living with your parents for a while when you are past your twenties, you don’t have to explain yourself to anyone for who you live with and why if you don’t want to. If you are fully aware of your living situation, then it means you have your own reasons for being in that situation that are nobody else’s business.

2. You don’t owe anyone an explanation for your life priorities.

You have your own ideas about the things that would make you and your loved ones truly comfortable and happy, which is your main priority. Since we are all unique individuals with different values, dreams and aspirations, your core priorities will be different from the next person’s. You don’t owe anyone an explanation for what you determine is your core priority in life. That is your personal business not other people’s business.

3. You don’t owe anyone an apology if you are not sorry.

 

If you don’t regret your actions, still think someone is wrong about something or don’t care much for their forgiveness, you don’t have to apologize. Many people are too quick to offer apologies and try to mend wounds that are not yet ready to be mended, which only serves to aggravate the wound and bring more problems. You really don’t have to apologize if you are not sorry or your side of the story hasn’t been heard.

Scott McQuate, Ph.D. | The Tribulation - Hidden Secrets Revealed From Texts Predating The Bible

S y n o p s i s 

The Tribulation is a real event of earth-altering importance that is said to take place after the Rapture during the End Times and it is something that will effect everyone, regardless of their religious affiliations or beliefs. If you are a Christian, however, who thinks you already understand the Tribulation or are a non-religious person who thinks it is a myth, either way, you need to think again. The Tribulation period is highly-misunderstood because of many doctrinal lies and misconceptions that have been touted as fact and unbeknownst to present-day Scholars, Pastors and Theologians, the subject of the Tribulation is not unique to the Bible. The shocking facts of this epic, all-important event were also spoken of within cultures long pre-dating the Bible, such as the Mayan, Sumerian, Hindu, Canaanite and others but, just as prophesied in Daniel 12:4, Proverbs 25:2 and elsewhere in the Bible, they have been intentionally concealed for millennia...until now. For a watered-down and tremendously adulterated understanding of the Tribulation, we can look to the current version of the Bible and to those who teach the tribulation 'doctrines' that have been corrupted, but if we want to understand the Tribulation accurately and truly know what this imminent, earth-altering event is about, we must look to not only the un-adulterated words of Jesus, but to other cultures pre-dating the Bible from which nearly all of the Biblical stories were taken. These are the 'old paths' spoken of by Jesus, which He stated were 'good'. The portrayal of events within the Bible, as a fact, have been twisted and filled with leaven as Jesus warned they would be, but just as prophesied, the veil is being lifted in these Last Days and 'The Book' is being opened. This is where Dr. Scott McQuate's research is crucial. As an author and researcher who has spent many years and hundreds of thousands of hours asking, seeking and knocking to delve into the deeper, hidden meaning of this and other ancient stories, his works finally explain the Biblical riddles that have never been understood by the teachers, pastors and theologians of our world.

B i o 

Dr. Scott McQuate is an internationally-acclaimed author and lecturer known around the world for his research into ancient texts. He has been on dozens of radio shows and has taught thousands of individuals from all over the globe, many of which have been personal students of his at his private learning network, The Inner Circle. For more than a decade, Dr. McQuate has spent hundreds of thousands of hours uncovering the truth that has been concealed from the world by the 'lying scribes' warned about in Jeremiah 8:8 and the 'coverers' of truth spoken of throughout the Bible under different aliases. If you have ever read Dr. McQuate's works before, you know that they are incredibly interesting, of extraordinary value and contain content that is above and beyond the ordinary. As a fact, there is nothing else like them in the world. Rest assured that you will be blown away by what he has discovered hidden beneath the ancient texts and shrouded stories of the Bible regarding The Great Tribulation as well. The information Dr. McQuate provides is life-changing and is of only the highest quality. If you are a genuine truth-seeker, when you read Dr. McQuate's books or listen to his teachings, you will know once-and-for-all that you have found what you've been seeking. This is information that is not available from any other source, is exclusive to Dr. McQuate's research and will transform your thinking. As a no-nonsense individual, Dr. McQuate has only one goal in mind; teaching the truth, so you can be free.

10 Scientific Studies That Prove Consciousness Can Alter Our Physical World

Image

Nikola Tesla said it best, “the day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. To understand the true nature of the universe, one must think it terms of energy, frequency and vibration.” Swami Vivekananda was Tesla’s mentor, an Indian Hindu monk and chief disciple of the 19th century saint Ramakrishna.

Science works best when in harmony with nature. If we put these two together, we can discover great technologies that can only come about when the consciousness of the planet is ready to embrace them, like free energy.

I want to make it clear that my intention of presenting this information is to demonstrate that thoughts, intentions, prayer and other units of consciousness can directly influence our physical material world. Consciousness can be a big factor in creating change on the planet.

Sending thoughts of love, healing intent, prayer, good intention, and more can have a powerful influence on what you are directing those feelings towards. Fukushima for example, if a mass amount of people send their thoughts and good intention to our waters, we can help mitigate the situation. These concepts can be used on a mass scale as one human race with one intent in their hearts, for multiple problems, as well as individual situations in our own lives. When our consciousness starts to merge into one as a collective, and we all start to see through the same eyes, we will begin to transform the world around us. I believe we are currently in this process.

For quite some time now, physicists have been exploring the relationship between human consciousness and its relationship to the structure of matter. Previously it was believed that a Newtonian material universe was the foundation of our physical material reality. This all changed when scientists began to recognize that everything in the universe is made out of energy. Quantum physicists discovered that physical atoms are made up of vorticies of energy that are constantly spinning and vibrating. Matter, at its tiniest observable level, is energy, and human consciousness is connected to it, human consciousness can influence it’s behavior and even re-structure it.

Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. – Niels Bohr

The hypothesis of modern science starts from matter as the basic reality, considering space to be an extension of the void. The phenomenon of creation of stable cosmic matter, therefore, goes beyond the scope of present science. The theory also neither pinpoints the source of cosmic energy that resides in the structure of matter, nor can it explain the cause of material properties that are experienced with the behavior of matter. These are, in brief, the limitations of modern scientific theories at the most basic level of the physical phenomena of nature. When a scientific theory cannot cope with the question of the very origin of the universal matter and energy, how could it ever grasp and explain the phenomenon of consciousness which is evident in living beings? – Paramahamsa Tewari.

Massive 'ocean' discovered towards Earth's core

Blue lagoon: this crystal of blue ringwoodite is being crushed in a lab experiment. The orange circles are regions that have had their water squeezed out of them <i>(Image: Steve Jacobsen/Northwestern University)</i> 

A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth's surface. The finding could help explain where Earth's seas came from.

The water is hidden inside a blue rock called ringwoodite that lies 700 kilometres underground in the mantle, the layer of hot rock between Earth's surface and its core.

The huge size of the reservoir throws new light on the origin of Earth's water. Some geologists think water arrived in comets as they struck the planet, but the new discovery supports an alternative idea that the oceans gradually oozed out of the interior of the early Earth.

"It's good evidence the Earth's water came from within," says Steven Jacobsen of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois. The hidden water could also act as a buffer for the oceans on the surface, explaining why they have stayed the same size for millions of years.

Pinging the planet

Jacobsen's team used 2000 seismometers to study the seismic waves generated by more than 500 earthquakes. These waves move throughout Earth's interior, including the core, and can be detected at the surface. "They make the Earth ring like a bell for days afterwards," says Jacobsen.

By measuring the speed of the waves at different depths, the team could figure out which types of rocks the waves were passing through. The water layer revealed itself because the waves slowed down, as it takes them longer to get through soggy rock than dry rock.

Jacobsen worked out in advance what would happen to the waves if water-containing ringwoodite was present. He grew ringwoodite in his lab, and exposed samples of it to massive pressures and temperatures matching those at 700 kilometres down.

5 Ways to Get High Without Drugs or Plants

Image

Since the beginning of time, humans have enjoyed getting high. From peyote to fasting, from booze to orgasm, people love to alter their consciousness and feel good. Some argue that addicts and alcoholics crave this transcendence more than the average person, noting that our brains are just wired differently. I don’t know about you but I like boom-boom big pleasure: Sometimes I just want dopamine, serotonin, endorphins and zippy laugh-riot good times. While I’ve learned that a lot of those big highs come with devastating lows, there are many people in recovery who’ve learned how to get those natural highs without the long-term losses associated with the use of drugs:

1. Meditation:

Getting high off of meditation

Now this is an advanced thing and I stumbled upon it accidentally and was delighted. As I started to meditate for longer, I found out I started to feel like I was getting high (the kind of high you get when you smoke marijuana). And once I stared feeling this way, I got addicted! At first I would meditate only in the nights before I went to sleep (did I mention that this is awesome if you have insomnia?), but after this realization I would meditate every time I had some free time anywhere between 15-30 minutes when I wouldn’t be disturbed.

This is the only way, you have to keep doing it and keep increasing your concentration period. And the more you do it, the easier you’ll find yourself to get into this altered state.

3 Liters of Water a Day Could Take 10 Years Off Your Face and More!

I feel fitter, leaner and healthier, and my husband and friends tell me I look ten years younger. Who in their right mind would not want to try something which gets such incredible results?”- Sarah Smith

Its something so simple that we often take for granted how much of a difference it can make. Our bodies are made up mostly of water and need water to function and thrive. When our organs are functioning properly our bodies have this amazing way of renewing themselves. By getting enough daily purified water we can flush toxins and keep our system well hydrated and efficient. . One woman named Sarah from the UK decided to drink 3 liter’s of water per day for 1 month to see if she could improve her headaches, poor digestion, and lack of energy.

Some of Sara’s most noted benefits were

More energy
Clearer thoughts
Increased flexibility
Natural weight loss, and less hunger
Full body hydration
Body detoxification
Clearer skin
Skin rejuvenation and increase in elasticity
Regular trips to the restroom
No headaches
Decreased cellulite

Here is her account of her 4 week journey.

“You might think I’d have little in common with a camel, but we do share one useful skill: both of us can go for a very long time without water.

Usually I start my day with a cup of tea, then I might have a glass of water with my lunch and one with dinner – that’s about a litre of liquid in 24 hours. It feels like plenty, but apparently it’s not nearly enough.

After years of suffering headaches and poor digestion I spoke to a neurologist about my regular headaches and a nutritionist about my poor digestion, and both told me I should be drinking up to three litres of liquid a day for my body to function at its best.

Then, when I read a recent survey suggesting that at least one in five women in the UK consumes less than the recommended daily intake of water, I decided to conduct an experiment. What would happen if I drank the recommended amount every day for a month?

The photograph of me taken the day I started this trial demonstrates perfectly – and rather frighteningly – what a lack of hydration does to a face.
