Breast Cancer Prevalence

by: Brenda Witt

In November 2003, the American Cancer Society stated that breast cancer is the leading cause of death in women between the ages of 40 and 44. In the United States, there are approximately 200,000 new cases of breast cancer and more than 40,000 deaths; making the U.S. one of the countries with the highest death rates due to breast cancer.

Am I Weird If I Date Online?

Am I Weird If I Date Online?

by: Devlyn Steele

True story: A few years back I was working with a client who had recently moved to Los Angeles. She was single, did not know many people in the big city, and felt a little lonely. I innocently suggested she give online dating a shot. It seemed like an easy and pressure-free way to meet people, and I had other clients who enjoyed their experience and were in good relationships as a result.
“What kind of desperate person do you think I am?!?” she snapped.
She apologized, but explained that she felt “weird” about online dating. This perked my curiosity, so later I asked some of my other clients if they ever tried it. Some only confessed after their faces turned three shades of crimson...

How to Lose Weight After Pregnancy

How to Lose Weight After Pregnancy

by: Balaji B

Weight control is a prevalent concern for many women after pregnancy. Although common during pregnancy, weight gain is difficult for many women to handle emotionally. Many women are unclear about how to separate fact from fiction concerning this “post-pregnancy” weight control. First of all, women need to understand how much weight gain is actually “normal” during pregnancy. Do try to keep in mind that your pregnancy weight wasn’t gained overnight so it won’t disappear that quickly, either. As a matter of detail, you gained that weight so that you would have plenty of reserves for feeding your baby.
Eat healthy foods. This really is unnoticed, though. Emphasize nutrient rich foods, which are not having too much fat...

Diamond Hoop Earrings: The Diva’s Choice

by: Sam Serio

Basic Palmistry II

Basic Palmistry II

by: Sam Stevens

Palmistry, also known as Chiromancy, is the art of telling a person’s fortune by looking at the lines and bumps on a person’s hand. However, since the 1920s, the art of Chiromancy has come a long way. Chirognomy is a related science in which hand shape; finger shape, fingers, nails and the texture and consistency of the flesh are examined in order to get a glimpse into the inner workings of the personality. Dermatoglyphics is the study of ridge patterns and formations found on the fingertips and palm itself to detect and diagnose inherited diseases. However here we are dealing with what I would call the “Romany Reader Basics” of the Art.
In an earlier New Age Notebook called Basic Palmistry I identified the major lines and mounts of the human hand...

Techno Witch and Magical Appliances

Techno Witch and Magical Appliances

by: Sam Stevens

My favourite episode of Bugs Bunny is the one where Bugs turns into a witch and says: “We ride vacuum cleaners now”.
It is true that the vacuum cleaner can be substituted for a broom to do a spell. For instance, one way to get rid of negative energy in your home would be to sprinkle sage leaves or salt all over the floor and as you vacuum picture all the bad vibrations being sucked up and removed along with the real dirt. I recommend you do this after a nasty person has paid you a visit or a tragic or upsetting event has taken place in your environment. The old way would be to sprinkle salt all over your floor or some kind of commercial powder and sweep the astral detritus away with a broom and out...

Wedding Day Savings

Wedding Day Savings

by: Declan Tobin

A little strategizing can go a long way when trying to cut down on spending for the big day. Invitations, flowers, and music can cost a small fortune but by making some adjustments to these elements you can have an elegant wedding without breaking the bank.
The Invitation is the first taste your guests will get of the type of wedding to expect. Formal weddings will have the formal invitation and a more laid back wedding will have an informal invitation to reflect the setting and mood of the day. When ordering the stationary you should keep in mind how many invitations you need, order half of the number of guests with an extra 10-15 to provide for the single guests and any mistakes you make and maybe a few extra envelopes just incase...

Graceful Menopause With The Help Of Ayurveda

Graceful Menopause With The Help Of Ayurveda

by: Dr. Sushama Patwardhan

Menopause is a unique experience for every woman. It is the ending of a woman’s monthly menstrual periods and ovulation. It also signals other changes to the body and mind, brought on in part because the body begins producing lesser amounts of the hormones estrogen and progesterone (among others).
Menopause is not a disease. It is a natural process in a woman’s life. How a woman views this time of her life can have a lot to do with how frequent and severe her symptoms are. If menopause is viewed as the end of youth and sexuality, this time will be much more difficult than if it is viewed as the next, natural phase of life, a time of greater freedom, liberation from the restrictions of youth. .
Although menopause is one...

Encouragement for Working Moms

Encouragement for Working Moms

by: Ana Tampanna

How many of us decide to shoot for the stars, then beat ourselves up when we find that the process of building the necessary equipment to reach that high is not easy?
We cry in frustration and deem ourselves failures for not reaching our business goals. Meanwhile we are raising children, nurturing an active marriage, supporting aging parents, volunteering in church, PTA and Scouts, working hard to enhance our own health, and maintaining a full workload.
Many of us do all these things as single parents. We share a need to be considered somebody of worth, to feel validated in what we do, and to achieve financial freedom.
We often feel that there just isn’t time to do much beyond getting food on the table and the kids tucked in bed...

Animal Jewelry: a Very Different and Beautiful For

Animal Jewelry: a Very Different and Beautiful Form of Adornment

by: Angela Davis

Animal jewelry is a wonderful way to express your love and appreciation for your pet animal. Not only is it an ideal gift to give to animal lovers, but it is also a rather unusual jewelry item which you can own yourself. Though animal jewelry in some form or another has been around since quite some time, it is only recently that the market for it has come of age. It is now available in almost every conceivable size, shape, form and texture for all age groups. Whether it is a sophisticated brooch for a woman, or tiger cufflinks for a man or a monkey necklace for a child, it can all be found and made to order if need be.

Marking Time

Marking Time

by: M J Plaster

“Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can’t buy more hours. Scientists can’t invent new minutes. And you can’t save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you’ve wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow.” ~Denis Waitely
If time were nothing more than an incidental commodity, it’s doubtful that the following phrases would clutter our everyday speech:
A stitch in time… Lost time… Found time… Time is money. Compress time… Time stood still. The time of my life… The sands of time… Real-time… Killing time… As time goes by… Father time… Time is on our side. Time worked against her.

What Inspires You?

What Inspires You?

by: Graham and Julie

Have you ever thought? What inspires YOU? What is it that drives you day in and day out? What is it that inspires you?
We think of creative people as being inspired and ask about their work. What inspired you to paint, draw, produce this piece of work? What inspired you to make this? Usually the answer is: a book, poem, film, experience, person, a place or in Cole Porter’s case the ‘phone call from the director’.
Something else or someone else inspired the artist, the songwriter. But what about the person in a regular job? What inspires you?
“Inspiration is a desire to live life without flinching. To take a risk and possibly fail.
To act on your emotions, creativity, ability and beliefs...

Lose Weight Today, and Keep it Off Permanently, with Cliff Kuhn, M.D.’s Fun Factor Diet

by: Cliff Kuhn, M.D.

P.T. Barnum, who dedicated his life to entertaining the masses, often relied on size-related adjectives to sell his attractions. His posters and announcements were peppered with words like mammoth, extraordinary, colossal, and gargantuan.
Unfortunately, if you’re like most of us those words might be used to describe you as well. Americans have an obsession with losing weight and with good reason; the percentage of overweight people in the United States is doubling every ten years – from 1 in 200 in 1986, to 1 in 50 in 2000. Pretty soon there won’t be enough room for us all on this continent!
We’ve identified a curious paradox: Americans are obsessed with weight loss and spend bi...

Men and Sperm Health

Men and Sperm Health

by: Dr. Mike Berkley

Men – What You Do On A Daily Basis Affects Your Sperm Maturation Process
While a woman is born with all the eggs she’ll ever have, men produce sperm on a continual basis. Therefore, what a man does on a daily basis can affect the sperm maturation process.
Smoking, drinking, drugs, stress, poor nutrition and lack of exercise all can contribute to poor sperm quality. And, it was recently discovered, a man’s sperm quality begins to decline around the age of 25.
There are five main factors that contribute to overall sperm quality. They include sperm motility, speed, count, concentration and morphology (shape and size).
A weakness in any of these areas can affect the chances of conception.
Motility
Sperm motility is a term that describes sperm’s ability...
