Take a hot shower for 3-5 minutes followed immediately by a cold shower for 30 seconds .Alternate between hot shower  and cold  shower  5 times. Always end with cold shower. Before each shower or bath ,dry brush the skin with a stiff brush until the skin is rosy and warmed. Brush stroking towards the heart region. When contrast showers are done properly, it is said that there is a decided increase in the number of blood cells in the peripheral circulation .This increase often amounts to 20-25% in the red blood cells and from 200-300% in the white blood cells .The hemoglobin also shows an increase of 5% or more. Hydrotherapy can increase circulation by 400%.
Try this contrast shower for 30days continuously .With hydrotherapy, every treatment extends and builds on the benefits of the previous one .In critical cases hydrotherapy should be done twice a day and focus the treatment on the afflicted body part. Taking a steam bath at home is serious sicknesses, have a steam bath daily until you are recovered. Sit on a small stool, covered with a blanket , from the neck to the feet,. Place a basin of boiling water between your feet. Replace the water as it cools with more hot water. Maintain this position for twenty minutes. End with a cold shower for 1-2 minutes. As I said earlier, the key to the success of hydrotherapy is patience and continuity. REMEMBER  GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINUOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT

The use of water is one of the most ancient remedies used for overcoming disease. As early as 400 b.c,Hippocrates, who is considered by modern medical science to be the 'The father of Medicine 'prescribed  hot and cold water as a treatment to help people recover from their ailments.
Natural remedies combined with hydrotherapy are more effective in restoring health than all the drug medication in the world. However keep in mind that the use of water can accomplish but little if it is not combined with the appropriate diet and staying well hydrated by drinking copious amounts of water throughout the day. Disease does not exist without some kind of disturbance in the  circulation. The efficacy of herbs is diminished if blood is not circulating properly. Perfect health depends upon perfect circulation. Raising and lowering temperature of the body through hydrotherapy will help break up congestion and facilitate elimination and improve circulation. Cold water stimulates and hot water relaxes. Together ,they are like a universal pump that makes blood flow.
It is through the skin that hydrotherapy produces its powerful physiologic actions .the skin is intimately connected to every organ in the body via the nervous system and circulatory system. By changing the skin temperature with water applications that are hot or cold, nerve sensations will stimulate or sedate specific systems or organs. But remember that this is a process that must be done faithfully and continuously to get desired results. In my next post I will describe a step by step method of  carrying out hydrotherapy.

The skin is considered to play the role of a third kidney. The average healthy person eliminates about  1g of waste material daily through the pores of the skin. People who engage in rigorous physical activity eliminate an even greater amount . it is important to keep the pores open and clean by daily bathing. A neglect of this will induce disease. More so those who are not in good health have impurities  in the blood. The multitude of pores through which the body breathes become clogged and filled with waste matter and the skin is not in a healthy condition. The skin needs to be carefully and thoroughly cleansed that the pores may do their work in freeing the body from impurities. Whether a person is sick or well, respiration is more free and easy if  bathing is practiced. Bathing makes the body muscles more flexible, the mind and body are invigorated ,the intellect is made brighter  and every faculty becomes is a soother of the nerves, it promotes general perspiration, quickens circulation ,overcomes obstructions in the system and acts beneficial on the kidneys and the urinary organs.REMEMBER TO ALWAYS END YOU BATH OR SHOWER WITH AT LEAST 30 SECONDS OF COLD WATER THIS ALWAYS HELPS TO STRENGTHEN THE BODY

The combination of honey, lemon and water results in a tasty, beneficial drink. Honey with lemon is an age-old remedy believed to soothe a variety of ailments. It is easy to make -- using household ingredients Because lemons have been around for so long and many people have studied their nutritional value, we know a lot about this fruit. Most people are aware that lemon juice is an excellent source of vitamin C and B, riboflavin and carbohydrates. They probably also know that lemon juice is good for colds, helps skin to heal and stay healthy, helps maintain healthy gums, helps heal burns, and is an effective natural antiseptic. But unfortunately not many people are taking advantage of the usefulness of this natural juice that God has so graciously given to us
  Relief of Digestive Problems 
Because of its high acidity, some people may be surprised to find that lemon juice might be a remedy against gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD). In fact, lemon juice can relieve nausea, indigestion, belching, bloating, constipation and hiccups as well as heartburn; it can also help the body digest foods better by helping the liver produce more bile
Unlike coffee or tea which contains caffeine that can lead to dehydration, warm lemon water serves as the perfect good morning drink, as it aids the digestive system and makes the process of eliminating the waste products from the body easier. It prevents the problem of constipation and diarrhea from taking place, by ensuring smooth bowel functions. Lemon, a fruit popular for its therapeutic properties, helps promote your immune system and thus, protects you from the clutches of most types of infections. It also plays the role of blood purifier. Lemon is a fabulous antiseptic bestowed on us by Mother Nature.
Urine test chart
Lemon juice works wonders for people having heart problems, owing to its high potassium content. So, make it a part of your daily routine to drink a glass of warm lemon water in the morning and then open your gateway to enjoy its health benefits. "The medicinal value of the lemon is as follows: It is an antiseptic, or is an agent that prevents sepsis [the presence of pathogenic bacteria] or putrefaction [decomposition of tissue]. It is also anti-scorbutic, a term meaning a remedy which will prevent disease and assist in cleansing the system of impurities."


Honey and lemon in water sometimes helps loosen congestion and prevent dehydration. Sip the mixture daily as needed. Suggested amounts of lemon juice are one-half to one lemon a day, stirred into 8 oz. of water two to three times a day. Add honey to your desired level of sweetness.Lemon water has a lot of benefits but it must become an everyday habit,for you to benefit from the health effects.:

Contrary to popular belief thirst is not a good indicator of dehydration ,By the time you are thirsty, it means that your body has already lost 3% of its water. If your urine is a strong yellow color, you are drinking very little water. Ideally your urine should be as light as possible almost colorless.Regular intake of water throughout the day is important because when a large amount of water is ingested it is practically completely eliminated by the kidneys in a few hours ,that is why to meet your daily ration of water intake a lot of water all at once is not the solution, drinking one glass of water every waking hour or so through out the day is best.For the women,about 2.2liters of water is recommended(i.e about 9 cups of water) while the male should have about 3 liters of water which is about 13 cups of water a day. When you are tired just drinking a lot of plain cold water will help revitalize you  during sluggish periods of the day. You will need to drink even more than that  if you sweat much or if the weather is hot.This will increase your endurance .ALWAYS CARRY YOUR WATER SUPPLY WITH YOU.Upon rising to jump start your day on the right tract make it a habit to drink 2 to four glasses of warm lemon water. For each glass squeeze the juice of half a lemon.Lemon water is alkalizing and detoxifying.
This is one of my favorite health habits hope it becomes yours too.BUT ALWAYS REMEMBER GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINUOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT.

Chronic pain is often an indicator of chronic dehydration .When any of your joints begin to signal aching pains that come and go this may be a sign that your body is severely short of water. Often though ,the signs of water deficiency in joint cartilages are not recognized for what they indicate and painkillers are prescribed. This frequently results in a dependence  on addictive medication, and permanent damage to cartilage separation of the joint bones
According to Dr. Fereydoon Badmangehelidj dehydration can cause disease "Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirsty is wrong. Pain in the body is a crisis call of the body for water. Thirst should be prevented". Chronic pain in the body which cannot easily be explained as injuries or infections should first and foremost be interpreted as a signal of chronic water shortage in the area where the pain is registered. This pain signal should first be considered and excluded as primary indicators for dehydration of the body before any other complicated procedures are forced on the patient .follow this instructions religiously and see how your body will respond beautifully with health. And how less stressed you will feel.BUT REMEMBER GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT.

Water is an elixir of life. Water drinking is my favorite hobby.In fact I have a friend that calls me a camel because I go every where with my bottle of water.
Toxic waste builds up in the body when we do not have enough water .the body of a newborn infant contains more than 80%water .The amount of water in the tissues lessens with advancing age. More than 60% of our body is made up of water.
 Humans have lived 81 days without food but they will die in 5 days without water. If you lose just 5% of the total amount of water in your body, you will start to hallucinate become disoriented and experience twitching muscles.
 If you lose 15% of your total water ,you life is endangered.
 Lose greater than 15% of body fluids may result in death. Yet the body has no water storage system to depend on in times of emergency
 The parts of the body that suffer most from dehydration are those without vascular circulation such as the joint cartilages in fingers knees and vertebrae. Most times chronic pain is often an indication of chronic dehydration. Water drinking is such a simple act neglected by many people possibly because of ignorance of its great importance,.In my next posting , I will talk about several body indications of dehydration.BUT NEVER FORGET THAT GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTIOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT ,

During exercise, your body consumes large amounts of oxygen. In fact, this is part of what helps you to lose weight. The more oxygen your body consumes, the harder that you're working out. It's one reason that you typically lose a lot of weight when you first start working out. Because your body is not accustomed to working out as much, you use a lot of oxygen during the course of your initial workouts. This oxygen is required to feed your muscles and keep them working. As you get into shape and get used to working out, though, your body doesn't require quite as much oxygen as before
When you're first working out, you should warm up by stretching and even jogging for a few minutes to get your blood flowing and the oxygen pumping through your body. This is essential to exercising because it prepares your body for a workout. However, if you're in a rush or you just can't wait to get started, you may be tempted to skip the warm up. This prevents your body from getting prepared and can leave you gasping for air because your body isn't ready to send oxygen to your muscles so quickly. If you're not getting enough oxygen to your muscles, you won't be at your best and you may experience muscle failure. It's the reason you should make sure you're breathing properly when you lift weights or run for distance. You need to keep your muscles fueled with oxygen to prevent muscle failure.As you can see from the graph, the more you exercise the greater the volume of oxygen you take in which in the long run is fantastic for your cells
There are certain equipment you can use to measure your oxygen uptake to see how efficient your body is and it also gives you an assessment of your fitness level. In a clinical setting, you can receive continuous data because of the instruments used to get this figure.  you will have a means of measuring fitness which you can then use to improve your oxygen uptake and performance.In my next posting,we will discouse how much exercise we need.but remember GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINOUS HABIT NOT AN are some exercise routines and resources that might interest you ,,

If insufficient supply of oxygen is received through shallow breathing ,the blood moves sluggishly. The waste poisonous matter which should be thrown off in exhalation from the lungs is retained and the blood becomes impure. Not only the lungs but the stomach liver and brain are affected. The skin becomes sallow and digestion is retarded
Oxygen deficiency in the cells is known to cause cancer. Experiments has proved that cancer cells cannot live in blood that is well oxygenated
Fresh air should be regarded as a great blessing. Many labor under the mistaken idea that when they have a cold, they must carefully exclude the outside air and increase the temperature of their room until it is excessively hot. The systems become deranged and the pores closed by waste matter. and the internal organs suffer more or less inflammation because the blood has been chilled back from the surface and thrown upon them .
therefore once you Are You Breathing Right?have a cold, the lungs should not be deprived of pure fresh air.

Behavioral Changes

  • Lack of oxygen can change a person's behavior during the day. He may not respond to stimulus or has bouts of fainting. If a person is suddenly no longer interested in things he previously enjoyed, this may be an indication of oxygen deprivation, or a number of other ailments..oxygen is extremely important so please get enough of it.BUT REMEMBER GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINOUSE HABIT NOT AN EVENT.

When cold, try not to wear too much. If you add clothing, let it be but little and exercise if possible to regain the heat you need. If you positively cannot engage in active exercise, warm your self by the heater lower the room temperature as soon as you regain your natural warmth.Exersive heating deprives one of the  vitality, benumbs the sensitive brain and causes the lungs to shrink and the liver to become inactive.
for healthy circulation special attention should be given to the extremities that they be as thoroughly clothed as the chest and the region over the heart which needs much warmth.
When the limps are not as well dressed as the trunk of the body, the blood is driven to the head causing headache or nose bleed or you feel a sense of fullness about the chest producing cough or palpitation of the heart on account of too much blood in that locality .or too much blood in the stomach causing indigestion.
In my next posting I will
discuss the disadvantages of not taking in enough energy by breathing well

One of the best ways to  TO  MAINTAIN OXYGEN LEVELS IN BLOOD is to learn some practical ways of doing it. Many of us do not get ENOUGH OXYGEN TO OUR LUNGS and blood .and in order for us to get enough oxygen to our lungs and blood, all you need to do is to learn deep breathing and to remember to do it daily.
 First  is to lie flat on ones back and place your hand on your stomach .As you breathe in deeply your hand should rise. this exercise should be practiced until your abdominal muscles automatically rise each time you breath. This indicates that the entire lung is expanding with emphasis on the lower part of the lungs and abdominal area
Be outdoors as much as possible .Always exercise outdoors .In the home it is important to secure thorough ventilation and plenty of sunlight. Keep proper ventilation in mind wherever you are(home ,work, school)Air must be in constant circulation to be kept free from poisons.
breath fresh air while sleeping ,open the windows even on cold winter nights double the blankets but always keep a window open. Air the bedrooms daily with the windows open. When you sleep in an ill ventilated room you will awake feeling feverish and exhausted. This is because the vital air was excluded and your entire body suffers in consequence
Do not smoke tobacco and avoid second hand smoke too Remember your skin also breathes
It is best to wear natural material on every thing that touches the body so that it can breathe without impediments .Avoid smog  and all chemicals ,cleaning solutions, solvents paint removers and insect sprays
The best air is at beaches ,oceans, waterfalls  forest .all these natural environments electrically charge oxygen molecules to negative ions which are health giving. However air from air conditioners  is not the best because it is positively ionized

Did you know that the way you stand or sit can affect your breathing. and the level of oxygen in your blood The lungs can expand properly only when a person sits and stands straight. Because otherwise the sacs in the lungs that take in air are compressed if lungs do not get enough air, the blood does not get enough oxygen in turn every thing does not function as efficiently as it should. Practice how to sit and stand straight-Head high back straight. Most people have very shallow breathing which means the lower portion of the lungs are filled with stale air. It is very important to do deep breathing exercises daily(three times a day is best)Be sure to do this in the morning before breakfast. Below are practical steps

Step 1

Close your mouth. Start breathing through your nose.Take a deep breathe to full expansion, hold then exhale slowly and completely and hold that. Repeat this say 20 times this increases oxygen in the blood and helps the circulation and gets toxins out of the system All of the mechanisms that ensure a proper balance between the intake of oxygen and expulsion of carbon dioxide are in your nose. Mouth breathing creates a different type of breathing pattern that upsets this balance by decreasing oxygen intake and releasing carbon dioxide too quickly, while nose breathing promotes a deeper, slower breathing pattern that increases oxygen intake.
Practice proper breathing. Do this until it becomes a habit. When you are breathing properly, you are breathing through your nose and your chest and abdomen are moving in unison. If only your chest is moving, you are breathing too shallow and oxygen is not reaching the lower part of your lungs.In my next posting I will talk about practical ways of getting enough air.BUT REMEMBER GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINUOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT

advantages of vitamin d


All of the sunlight's vitamin D health -effects are not yet known but it is clear that the vitamin is a "blockbuster "nutrient capable of many things
1. Strengthens the immune system. Exposure to sunlight increases the number of the immune systems  white blood cells in the body . moreover sunlight increases the number of lymphocytes, which are the most powerful germ killers of white blood cells.

2.Strenthens and steadies the heart
3,Elevates the mood.
4.Improves mental function. One study revealed that after exposing participants to 20minutes of bright white light in the morning ,they become more alert. The brain images showed that regions of the brain involved with alertness and some cognitive processes become more active.
5. Increases muscle tone which in turn burns up more calories.
Aids in calcium assimilation and strengthens bones and teeth. Dentist have observed that people living in cloudy areas where there is not much sun have worst dental decay than those who live in the tropics where the sun beats down on them many hours of the day
6.Increases the  volume of oxygen in the increasing the capacity of the blood to carry more oxygen to the body tissues. Bronchial asthmatics, who can hardly breathe are able to inhale freely  after a sunbath.
7,Balances hormones .Sunlight reaches the pineal gland through the eyes and affects the pituitary, which controls the hormone production of the other endocrine glands in a beneficial way
8.It destroys germs on the skin by changing the natural body oil on the skin into bactericidal agents.
On my next posting I will discourse how to enjoy the benefits of sunlight without the risk of skin cancer.BUT REMEMBER GOOD HEALTH IS A HABIT NOT AN EVENT

If a doctor  you had a high regard for told you that to get better you only needed to take 10 different medications each day and then he decided to give them to you for free .
would you accept it?
I can bet that you would.
Today the greatest physician in the universe is offering you his remedies ,will you accept his offer?
God most often uses simplest means to accomplish great results. His ways is superior to orthodox medication because his remedies heal the root of the problem not just the symptoms and they work for all  and there side effects are desirable( more energy, greater endurance, sharper memory, clearer thinking ,deeper sleep, younger looking skin and loss of excess weight)
The very first natures gift to perfect health I want to talk about is" OUR FREEST VITAMIN SUPPLY",SUNLIGHT.
have you ever stopped to think how life can exist without sunlight? Not a leaf or plant will grow or a flower bloom
man was created largely to live outdoors where the body can receive abundant sunshine. A miracle factory is at work just beneath your skin. As sunshine strikes tiny oil glands (sterols)just beneath the skin, substances  within them(egosterols)are irradiated and transformed into vitamin D
Vitamin D is unique in that it is the only vitamin that humans produce intrinsically after exposure to ultraviolet -B light from the sun, and it influences the entire body because receptors that respond to this vitamin has been found in every human cell,.from the brain to the bones.
The health benefits of this vitamin is numerous but I will discause the most important ones in my next blog.REMEMBER GOOD HEALTH I A CONTINOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT

The activities you engage in and the daily choices you make affect the way you feel physically and emotionally.
  • Get enough rest. To have good mental and emotional health, it’s important to take care of your body. That includes getting enough sleep. Most people need seven to eight hours of sleep each night in order to function optimally.

  • Engage in meaningful, creative work. Do things that challenge your creativity and make you feel productive,

Being emotionally and mentally healthy doesn’t mean never going through bad times or experiencing emotional problems. We all go through disappointments, loss, and change. And while these are normal parts of life, they can still cause sadness, anxiety, and stress.,
The difference is that people with good emotional health have an ability to bounce back from adversity, trauma, and stress. This ability is called resilience. People who are emotionally and mentally healthy have the tools for coping with difficult situations and maintaining a positive outlook. They remain focused, flexible, and creative in bad times as well as good.


People who are emotionally healthy are in control of their emotions and their behavior. They are able to handle life’s challenges, build strong relationships, and recover from setbacks. But just as it requires effort to build or maintain physical health, so it is with mental and emotional health. Improving your emotional health can be a rewarding experience, benefiting all aspects of your life, including boosting your mood, building resilience, and adding to your overall enjoyment of life.
Mental or emotional health refers to your overall psychological well-being. It includes the way you feel about yourself, the quality of your relationships, and your ability to manage your feelings and deal with difficulties.
Good mental health isn't just the absence of mental health problems. Being mentally or emotionally healthy is much more than being free of depression, anxiety, or other psychological issues. Rather than the absence of mental illness, mental and emotional health refers to the presence of positive characteristics. Similarly, not feeling bad is not the same as feeling good. While some people may not have negative feelings, they still need to do things that make them feel positive in order to achieve mental and emotional health. People who are mentally and emotionally healthy have:
  • A sense of contentment.
  • A zest for living and the ability to laugh and have fun.  
  • The ability to deal with stress and bounce back from adversity. You can get some tips from this stress management e-book 
  • A sense of meaning and purpose, in both their activities and their relationships.
  • The flexibility to learn new things and adapt to change.
  • A balance between work and play, rest and activity, etc.
  • The ability to build and maintain fulfilling relationships.
  • Self-confidence and high are some websites that one can get valuable information on relationshis
These positive characteristics of mental and emotional health allow you to participate in life to the fullest extent possible through productive, meaningful activities and strong relationships. These positive characteristics also help you cope when faced with life's challenges and stresses.
spiritual ,mental and emotional balance must be in place for the enjoyment of perfect health

The greatest cause of human suffering is ignorance. On the subject of how to treat our case of sickness, the cause should be ascertained. Unhealthful conditions should be changed, and wrong habits corrected. Then nature , is to be assisted in her effort to expel impurities  and to reestablish right  conditions in the system. When  sickness ,we can follow the following steps.
1.Find out what is causing the disease, because disease never comes without a cause .Reason with yourself," what could I have done to become sick"? In the beginning, reasoning from cause -to-effect may be challenging and uncertain but with practice and conscious awareness, it will become easy

2.Stop doing what you discovered made you sick

3Assist the body's efforts to expel impurities by exercising faith in God through the use of simple remedies that he has provided in nature

4.Do not try to get rid of these symptoms by adding the burden of poisonous medicines to your body, this only suppresses the condition

5. Natural provisions are within the reach of all with little expence.but drugs are expensive both in the outlay of means and the effect produced in the system
Five simple steps to get to the root cause of a sickness.

spiritual knowledge,the begining of health

When we know the cause of a problem ,then the solution has started.
to heal and leave in health, we first need to know.
medicine upholds that we are victims attached by bad organisms. But the father of germ theory ,Pasteur began to understand the true relationship of germ to disease late in his life when he stated '' The germ is nothing, the soil (the condition of the body )is everything "meaning that a germ can only thrive in a suitable environment.
God has written physical laws with his own hands upon every nerve ,every muscle and every organ which has been entrusted to man .Every "thou shalt not" whether in physical or moral law contains or implies a promise. Transgression of physical laws is the transgression of Gods law. Disease results from the transgression of physical laws. The creator and manufacturer of our bodies has arranged everything in our bodies and has pledged himself to keep the machinery in order if we cooperate with him and refuse to work contrary to the laws which govern the human system
When we realize that disease is the transgression of Gods physical laws most times out of ignorance, by removing this cause, we have found the cure.
so what should we do first when we fall sick. I will discourse that in my next posting.

the various health components

Spiritual health is an important component of an individuals well-being and an integral aspect of the holistic health philosophy.that is why I will like to start with this basic component.

Physical, mental and spiritual health are deeply intertwined and have a profound effect on one another.

This truth is clearly exhibited for instance when someone who is sad on the emotional level experiences fatigue, a loss of energy and/or decreased appetite on the physical level and on the spiritual level they feel out of touch with their true self and disconnected from the Universe and the lord who created it.

Another clear example would be that when spiritually we feel lost and unbalanced, this may cause us to be moody and discontent with life, perhaps we grow emotionally distant from our loved ones and on the physical level we may experience stress or fatigue.

On the other hand, when we feel spiritually connected and fulfilled, everything in our life including physical and emotional pain, are easier to deal with. We feel lighter and happier.

There's no denying it - when we feel connected and balanced spiritually we feel better physically and emotionally. Nourishing our spiritual self is as important as food, water and exercise.

Some people claim to experience complete healing from certain health conditions through a variety of spiritual methods, but this doesn't happen all that often.It's important to note that we aren't talking about religion here. Some people may find spiritual fulfillment in religion, but it is only one of many ways. Religion and spirituality are not one in the same. Spiritual connection is about finding meaning and purpose in your life, discovering who you truly are and connecting with the God that provide you inner strength, comfort, hope and inner peace.

Be still and listen. Tune into your inner voice and identify what it is that makes you feel whole, alive and connected to the God of the Universe; this is your spiritual food. When do you feel most fulfilled and complete? What gives you inner peace, comfort, strength and harmony? Your spiritual health, as well as your emotional and physical health, may be improved by cultivating more  of those things ,together with humor and gratitude in your life. Remembering to appreciate the simple things in life and not taking yourself too seriously.
 Once you identify your spiritual needs, nourish them on a regular basis. Don't ignore them or put them off. If you neglect your spiritual health, then you become hungry and search for food in the wrong places, which is destructive and zaps you of your life sustaining energy.Experiencing life completely and consciously, even in the midst of great pain and suffering, is the essence of spiritual health.
