We have a good deal of attention focused on our nails these days. Nails become more of a health issue as we get older and especially if a person is diabetic.
As people get older and are limited in bending and reaching their toes, the nails become more problematic. Toenails are often very hard to cut. Often their nails have fungus. Older people might not see well enough to be cutting their toe nails. And it is very important to avoid infection of the area around the nails, meaning proper nail trimming is essential.
As for younger people who love the fake nails or even just polish, it isn’t a bad idea to give the nails a breather once in a while. At least here in Denver, we aren’t wearing sandals in the winter, so it is a good time to give the toenails a break from the polish. Once a year, for a month, just let the nails be natural!
Perhaps I’ve talked with you over the years about stress and emotions and how they affect your physiology. It is one thing to understand problems with your mind, but another to help the body de-stress from the event.
A research project was completed on the NeuroEmotional Techique, which is the work I do. The research was on people who had recovered from cancer, but felt highly stressed with the fear of it coming back. The subjects were given a functional MRI of the brain, before treatment of NET and after short term treatment, which showed the the patients brains were changed by the NET.
Originally, the brain showed traumatic memories and after the short term treatment, the brain basically normalized itself. It was not longer a traumatic memory. And that was without medication or years of therapy.
You can watch a documentary about this project. It is called “Stressed” and is available on Amazon. It might be free if you have amazon prime. I’d love your feedback on the documentary. It is wonderful to have drug-free options.
We are in the midst of winter. People have been getting sick right and left. If you can’t shake your coughing and feeling sick, come in and see me! I’ll help you.
The knees are so important. I probably don’t have anyone disagreeing. When you complain that the inside of your knee hurting, that is one of the first indications I have that you are stressing yourself out too much. Your adrenals can’t keep up with you. Of course, that is when the patient reports no falls or injuries to the knee. The pain just came on.
So please beware of your inner knees. The ligament is trying to hold your knee in the right place, but it needs some help. Slow down and rest. Relaxation is restorative. Americans tend to go, go, go. Get to bed by 10 pm at night. If you are drinking coffee, monitor the amount.
If you don’t pay attention and get a little help for the knee when it needs it, you are setting your knee up for injury! Don’t be that person.
Have a great January!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
It is a time of new beginnings. We don’t get a do-over, but we get to start again. That is important to our mindset. And in reality, each day we get to start again.
It is a time of reflection: what worked well and what needs improvement. There are many programs of goal setting. It has been proven that you are more likely to reach your goals if you have defined them and written them down.
Don’t forget about your health when setting goals. As we get older, we really do discover that without your health, other goals might never be realized. Health is number one!
Here is to enjoying 2019 while working toward our goals! Cheers!
