For me, relaxation techniques still work the best (with consistent effort!).
Enjoy Lori’s blog in the meantime!
Do you know that 70% of our planet is covered in water? 98% of this 70% is water that is not drinkable as it is the ocean. Slightly less than 2% is locked up in glacier and polar ice caps. The remaining less than 1% is drinkable which is found in lakes and streams.
Water is essential for all living things on our planet. An average person can survive more than 2 weeks without food but cannot survive more than 72 hours without water.
Almost everyone is dehydrated in some way. Chronic dehydration has affected many people, resulting in symptoms like fatigue, low in energy, constipation, premature aging, acid-alkaline imbalance, abnormal blood pressure, obesity, digestive disorder and many more other conditions.
Many degenerative diseases are due to free radicals oxidative stress and acidic wastes. Our acidic lifestyle, i.e. consuming acid-forming food and beverages like sodas puts our body in unnecessary stress. The body has to work harder to fight the free radicals and remove acidic wastes.
Free radicals oxidative stress has been widely accepted by the medical world as the cause of almost all sickness and diseases. Therefore, it is important to remove free radicals using antioxidants. Currently, the most common forms of hydration, i.e. tap water, bottled water and canned drinks are oxidising.
Our body has the ability to heal itself if it is given the right nutrition. Our body mass is 70% to 75% water but we pay more attention to what we eat than what we drink. Water is the basic nutrition we need. 90% of our blood is water, 80% of our brain is water, 22% of our bones are water and so on. Without proper hydration, our blood moves slower, nutrients and oxygen gets transported slower to our vital organs. Without enough water, our brain shrinks which will affect our concentration and focus which in turn affects our work.
In order to enjoy good health, slow down aging and proper hydration, we need to drink the right kind of water. Water that has high in antioxidants, alkaline and micro-clustered. This type of water is usually found in the nature, near the glaciers, waterfalls and some under the ground.
Most of us live in a concrete jungle and there is no opportunity to enjoy such good water. However, using technology, we are able to convert our tap water into what nature intended water to be. This is water is called Kangen Water®, which means water that is returned to origin in Japanese.
Kangen Water® machines are used in hundreds of thousands of homes worldwide to transform tap water into pure, healthy alkaline drinking water. It was first used in hospitals and to date, more than 250 hospitals and clinics in Japan are using Kangen Water® to help patients recover from cancer, diabetes, heart disease, etc. in a drug free environment.

Depression ranks second to the most common chronic medical illnesses, while it ranks #1 in the most common mental conditions.
Depression is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths in the world. It is a mental condition that completely alters the mood and outlook in life of a person. In depression, the main goal is to escape the problem by thinking of death as the only way to end it all.
Genetics – parents or relatives with mental illnesses will have a chance of passing this to their children, because depression can be inherited.
Drug or alcohol abuse – drugs and alcohol can alter mental stability of a person that causes depression and other illnesses.
Poor problem solving skills – if a person has the inability to decide for himself and problems arise, his/her coping may be affected and thus lead to depression.
Social factors – such as traumatic conditions (rape, war and calamities), and being bullied in school or workplace.
Medical or biological factors – chronic or long term illnesses can lead to depression. Loss of an arm or leg or any body functions is also another cause.
Lack or too much of sleep – family members or friends of the affected person may observe that he/she is sleeping more than ever, or not being able to sleep at all.
Mood changes – feelings of wanting to die and being unable to make decisions.
Lack of energy – unable to perform daily routines such as going to work and other activities of daily living such as bathing, reading a book, and no energy for the activities the person used to love.
Low self esteem – poor eye contact, avoiding conversations and has a low self confidence.
Poor diet – characterized by being unable to eat or eating excessively. There can be signs of weight loss or gain.
Inducing harm – attempting suicide and inflicting pain to oneself (wounds or cuts on the body may be seen).
Antidepressant medications – are prescribed by the Psychiatrist to stabilize the mood and regain normal sleeping patterns.
Emotional support – surround yourself with the happy people and the people you love like your family and friends. Professional support can also be provided by a Psychotherapist or psychiatrist.
Activities – a way of being entertained and diverted by doing something fun like sports, watching a movie, and being around friends or support groups.
Get some sun – get out of the dark and be exposed to the sun and well-lit places to boost the mood.
Eating healthy foods – for the purpose of receiving sufficient vitamins and minerals, as well as to normalize body weight and body system functions.
Degrees of depression vary from one person to the other. Some people can conquer this situation on their own, while seeking medical help is also recommended.
