Sports are Competitive – is this why they are such fun?

RTPR SportsAthletes of all sizes, shapes and different abilities all want to perform at their best.  And that means not being hampered by injury, pain or physical ailments.  Athletes look for something that will help:

  • prevent muscle cramps
  • keep inflammation at bay
  • allow for faster recovery
  • increase circulation

RTPR SPORTS is an FDA registered OTC with menthol as the active ingredient. It is effective for relieving pain from:

It relieves the ache of just plain OVER DOING IT – great while you are pushing it, but not so good as you try to sleep that night or work the following morning. Aches and pains can be a distraction and break your focus. If you apply RTPR SPORTS before and you may not have to experience the consequences!

I have a customer at Edwards Airforce Base who buys from me regularly. He swears it lowers his golf handicap!  What I have heard from other customers is that if they apply the lotion before, while exercising their muscles are looser and then if they put it on again after,  they find the lotion a blessing and a comfort.

Conquering Our Fears

When we were small, we searched with no fear. We sought out the different, the surprising, the unusual. We treasured every new sensation, idea and person we met.

How different that is for those who have learned to stay in the familiar nest, not reaching out, not going to new places nor communicating to strangers.

How does a person change from the baby actively searching for new experiences to the old person who avoids surprises, preferring instead boring sameness? Perhaps if we knew what caused this, we could avoid it or even reverse it.

Well, we say, we were hurt by the burning stove or cut on the broken glass. We were betrayed by ones we loved or, worse yet, ridiculed by others.

Yes, those things occurred, no doubt. Yet, if any one of us were to look around, I’d wager that the pain, betrayal or ridicule is no longer present in our environment, only in our mind.

How often have you imagined an upcoming event with dread. Certain that some past ill would befall you, only to find that it never came to pass. You enjoyed yourself instead.

We tend to paint the future using pictures of our past. And when we’ve grown conservative or become wary, we are painting that future with only the bad parts of our past.

Most people don’t know this, but you can change what pictures and experiences guide you. Try this for a few days:

1. Don’t read the paper–or at least don’t read the news–read all the ads or sports scores you wish.
2. Don’t watch or listen to the news. It’s almost all bad.
3. Each day recall three things you intended to accomplish and did.
4. Deliberately smile when you meet five people each day.

See if this doesn’t change your outlook.

When you expect good things and accept whatever comes your way with interest, you will be the master of your life.

One of my favorite definitions of “greatness” is the ability to bring joy to others and results for yourself.   Peter Glickman – Author of the Master Cleanse

Note From Picture Lady
Twenty Five Years Ago a friend challenged us to go without TV for a month
– well we did and we felt so much better we have not watched ever since.

I don’t regret it as I get my news from the Internet – my favored source is Policy Mic

I do admit though I enjoy watching TV when I visit my sister and my kids.
It is something to look forward to. But then they also never watch the news.

Do you know that while I do know all about 9/11 – have researched it thoroughly and even written about it I did not see those towers coming down.
Catastrophe and the typical “bad news” that is the daily fare is in no way essential to your sense of well being.

I think that knowing what is going on is vital – but why have bad pictures thrust on you?

Let me issue the same challenge to you. Try no TV for a month.
Then come back selectively.
Some films and stories are real fun although they soak up time when
you could be creating things.

Is Health a State of the Mind?

To recapture Health we need to recapture the Wonder 

young, adult and old

In the 1950s kids lost their innocence.
They were liberated from their parents by well-paying jobs, cars, and lyrics in music that gave rise to a new term —the generation gap.

In the 1960s, kids lost their authority.
It was a decade of protest—church, state, and parents were all called into question and found wanting. Their authority was rejected, yet nothing ever replaced it.

In the 1970s, kids lost their love. It was the decade of me-ism dominated by hyphenated words beginning with self.
Self-image, Self-esteem, Self-assertion….It made for a lonely world. Kids learned everything there was to know about sex and forgot everything there was to know about love, and no one had the nerve to tell them there was a difference.

In the 1980s, kids lost their hope.
Stripped of innocence, authority and love and plagued by the horror of a nuclear nightmare, large and growing numbers of this generation stopped believing in the future.

In the 1990s kids lost their power to reason. Less and less were they taught the very basics of language, truth, and logic and they grew up with the irrationality of a postmodern world.

In the new millennium, kids woke up and found out that somewhere in the midst of all this change, they had lost their imagination. Violence and perversion entertained them till none could talk of killing innocents since none was innocent anymore.”

Downsizing

Moving to a Smaller Home. We are so used to “big” in America. With a European husband and raised in Africa, I may have a different view. This is how I see it, that when you choose a simpler lifestyle and consciously create an aesthetic transformation in your new-small-home, life actually gets easier. Perhaps the biggest benefit you are going to find is time. The less “stuff” you have the more time you seem to have. For life is not about what you wear, the stuff you own or the house you live in. It is about relationships. It may even be easier to create a cozy, welcoming atmosphere for your friends and family, leaving a troubled world outside, when the space is small and affordable. Mirror with lamps Mirrors are good, especially if placed alone on a short wall. (Note: You can select your mirror online with Picture Lady and we will bring it to the show) Here are some tips to help you decorate to do this. The first thing you absolutely MUST do is remove all the clutter
Furniture with a glass top, or a filigree, makes a room look more spacious. Rather than several different colors choose several shades of the same color. The small room will appear less fragmented Bright colors advance, and cooler colors recede. You want to choose cool colors like sage green or a soft teal or lavender for a small room. Much can be done to create the idea of a bigger room with a careful selection of pictures. Scenery that fades into the distance makes a room look twice the size.

Cafe at LakeChoose furniture that has built in storage, like nesting tables, or a bed with drawers or an ottoman. Choose only one or two medium sized pictures. A lot of small pictures make the room look busy. Sorry, that family photo-wall and that glass cabinet may have to go. There is a solution: Choose only two or three precious photos and turn these into a collage with PHOTO TO ARTWORK. (Remember the photo-work is free) Last but not least, every room deserves a little “bling”! Find one outstanding or unique item that makes everything around it look expensive. It doesn’t actually have to cost you much. In my sister’s front room her focal point is an antique lamp that she got for free at a flea market! May you have lots of fun decorating for downsizing!

Mother’s Day

Share what your Mother means to you with your Family and the World.

Little Pictures

Man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but it is his love for his mother that is the most lasting. In earlier times a son or daughter would be asked to suppress this love; caring was considered soppy, a mere weakness in a world dominated by force. There was even was a time when women were regarded as chattels, as mere property.

Sadly this is still true in many cultures in a backward world.

We have won the battle for women in America, and we did it in the last hundred years. What will we do with the next hundred years?

We have new channels for sharing our ideas. We need to share not only with our special ones but with the world how we see family, and how we see the gentle art of mothering.

My daughter-in-law acknowledged her Mother on Facebook last month for her assistance on a project. I am sure her mother smiled.

A Facebook friend posted his “limitless” love for his new wife.   He described what she had done to be a mother to his three daughters from a prior marriage.  I cried.  What a strong and loving man to express himself so clearly.  “Limitless” was his word.  I am sure his new wife smiled.

Can you speak up next month. Can you post to the world, so that your Mother and the world knows just exactly what she means to you?

Be sure to tell her also, so that she smiles too.

A Tribute to Mandela

We say thank you and goodbye to a very great man!

Think back to all the American presidents you have lived and worked under; how many of them were joyful men? Maybe Bill Clinton in his better years, or JFK, and perhaps Ronald Reagan? Fewer than the fingers on your right hand. Yet, should a leader not be joyful? I do believe that freedom is a quality of mind, a quality of heart and a quality of soul; it is the essence of what we call greatness and for those who have it none can take it away. Mandela’s life goes a long way to prove my point.

Statue of Mandela

He was essentially a joyful man, yet there was not much in his hard life to make him so. He spent all of twenty-seven years in prison where he slept on a thin mat on a stone floor. Those years were filled with hardship, with icy nights in the winter and sweltering summer days, with bad food and hard labor yet at all times he remained upbeat and positive. In the early years his wife was rarely allowed to visit him, and he was never allowed to see his children. She was bitter but he was never bitter.

He was sentenced in 1964 to life imprisonment for sabotage and placed on Robben Island off the Cape of Good Hope. This was ironic, for at that time hope was foreign to his situation. In the early years his achievements were small, but they were always there. He cultivated good relations with the prison guards, and was rewarded by having his allocation of sugar for his coffee increased to two teaspoons – blacks were normally allowed only one. It was a small, but important victory in overcoming the circumstances of his existence.

Later on, his prison life was punctuated by other small victories, only because he was such a man of good will and none could hate him. He succeeded in getting the grueling slave labor abolished for all blacks in the limestone quarry, but then regretted it because he was getting fat! So he persuaded the prison authorities to let him play tennis.

Finally, he was transferred to a lighter prison on the mainland and towards the end of that phase off his life he was given a small cottage with a garden and a pool which he referred to as his gilded cage. He was always aware that his freedom – he could eat, swim, play tennis when he chose and even see his wife – was but an illusion. It was a measure of independence, but it fell far short of freedom.

Time marches on, something we can count on, and in some countries, in some times, the greater good reasserts itself. He was invited to lead the country’s passage to majority rule. There were many secret meetings, and at these meetings he was treated with honor and respect. Finally came the meeting with President P.W. Botha on July 5, 1989.

While Mandela never lost his heart, never lost his intelligence, certain domestic skills had fallen by the wayside while he was in prison. Maybe, as a member of an “inferior” class, he didn’t have them in the first place or rightly thought them unimportant. On that historic day he had needed some help to knot his tie and tie his shoelaces. What of it, he had lived over twenty years in prison slip slops and a T-shirt.

In the end they did him proud and Mandela entered the president’s office looking like, well, looking like the next president, which is what he was to become. Still in no way resentful of what had been done to him, he accepted the challenge to lead the South Africa he loved and his race, out of the morass and up into the stars.

Mandela Quotes

“I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death.”

“For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.”

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

“If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.”

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

Thanksgiving 2013

What am I thankful for about America? 

Two little Indians and two little settlers

Thanksgiving 2013

As I set about to write this post, I went back to last year’s thanksgiving entry and clicked on a thanksgiving account written by a Native American.  I  was not born American and I remember thinking last year – wow what was done to the Native American people in America was absolutely horrible, and I entered into her upset and I began to feel resentment.

Note: Resentment is at odds with the emotion of gratitude which is liberating.

Luckily this year I am seeing it differently. This year I see that there is truly no place for holding on to “being a victim”  Don’t get me wrong here, it is not that I think that what was done by the early Americans to the Indians was okay, it wasn’t. Had Indians not helped the early settlers, those settlers could in no way have survived.  My point is that as we celebrate all together in November in America, should we put our attention on the positive not the negative.  Holding on to being a victim keeps the conflict alive. This underlies our horrible and I will say unnecessary war on terror which only serves to keep corrupt leaders in power using this resentment to create strife, it does not in any way help the people. So let the resentment go.

So while I do not want to justify the bad things done in America’s past and there are many, I think we all, whatever our color, race or creed have to rise above these.bad experiences.  I look back on bad things done to me in my short life, and I am grateful that I have gained the ability to let go of these. It is an ability I have only recently acquired.

What I like most about this adopted country is how far we have come to include  the many different peoples in the fabric of the American culture. America has come a long way with Diversity – and it didn’t just happen. Once upon a time it was true that the Native Americans got the short end of the stick but let’s move forward for that was then, and now is now

So what am I grateful for this year? I am grateful that as a White South African who emigrated to America that I was invited this last year to a Native American Pow Wow!  I am grateful that as a White South African that I was once the only White invited to a Black HIstory celebration in a black church, an aesthetic moment I cherish, for the singing and harmony was unbelievable!  I am grateful for my Black Friend Willie Gibson and his very special lady, my Facebook friend, Dominee Phillips; friends who have had a positive impact on my life.  I am grateful for the very white lady who has just shopped at my Christmas table with her very black husband as I watch her look up at him adoringly.  I am grateful for China Town, Little Armenia and Vietnamese and Korean Restaurants. I am grateful that we are one nation under God and that Native Americans are now very much part of our national heritage and are now very much included in the multi-faceted American culture.

When we seek to reinforce our cultural strength, the woof and warp of many different realities that make up our great nation, we see that what we want to express gratitude for, is those many times when we as a nation have been able to rise above strife and conflict and have come together to care and share.for each other whatever the color of our skin, or the diversity of our politics and backgrounds.

Such a wonderful joyous time, so many wonderful Thanksgiving celebrations I have enjoyed since I came to America in 1978. I thank all of you who have celebrated with me.

turkey standing on American FlagIt was a very unique and special time, that very first American Thanksgiving and so let’s repeat it over and over year in and year out and give each other help and respect.

Lets all celebrate and eat turnkey!

Detoxification – What is Health

Disease doesn’t just happen, it progresses. The alternative concept is very different from the medical idea that non-optimum body conditions just happen.

health

Alternative Medicine sees many illnesses as self limiting when you are living in a clean environment. Given adequate rest, a light fast and lots of cleansing water the body is able to protect and to heal itself by itself.

Modern Living brings up a problem: We are being more and more assaulted by toxins in our everyday life. Toxins come in on us from many sources, for example a toxin can be the uric acid formed  by eating too much meat, Add to that nowadays they are adding hormones and toxic substances tto the beef, chicken and fish to get the food to last ilong enough to get to the supermarket.

Toxicity is also poison such as a bee sting or spider bite.

Toxicity is  bacterial infection. This has been brought somewhat under control by good hygiene during the last century. This alone in America, while the rest of the world has yet to catch up.

For quite some time America was winning the toxic game with individuals living longer and staying healthy. Now, it seems the toxic load is rising again and we see this in comparative statistics. Japan is way ahead of America in healthy people. In Japan one in half a dozen have an alkaline water machine in the home, in America it is one in eighteen hundred. In the 1800s only one in 1800 succumbed to cancer, while now it is one in three or four living in our modern cities. Nowadays toxicity is assaulting us from pesticides and GMOs in America not to mention new electrical gadgets like computers, cellphones and GPSs.

Furthermore our modern life is stressful. Stress generates cortisol and if there is too much cortisol in the body, the hormone itself becomes toxic. How are we to cope with this?

For many years those who enjoyed a relatively natural lifestyle, sickness was for most part, self limiting. The body took care of the toxic assault and recovered easily in three to ten days.

To best understand what has changed, pretend that your liver is a factory which has two major tasks, its primary function being to filter toxins coming in from the environment while it is also tasked secondarily to seek out toxins that have lodged in the facility.  For the second task to be done (cleaning the factory) it has to best the ongoing challenge from the outside, to be able to quit handling the assault for long enough to find the time to work on its second mandate fixing the factory. When this outside challenge is so big that the liver barely copes, it never has time to turn inwards to house clean. To make matters worse it will have to find a place in the factory for the excess load coming in, that which it was unable to handle, process and eliminate. So while the liver is over busily coping, it never does its inward housecleaning work and it actually adds drudge in the body. Toxicity gets lodged in the fatty tissues which makes it all but impossible without handling the toxicity as the first step, to then successfully diet.

So what happens when the toxicity coming in is never handled, not when it arrives nor later when it has lodged?  This is where we get the onset of disease, disease which progresses  through five clear stages, as a condition worsens.

 Elimination
The liver as the main filter will work hard and long to neutralize the toxic load and to eliminate toxins through the colon, bladder, lungs or the sweat pores of the skin.  The most efficient of course is the elimination through the colon, which is why it is vitally important to have your feces moving through the colon, and not getting stopped up. Your body will tell you when it is trying to eliminate. You will get a runny nose, break out into a light rash, have fits of sneezing, spit up phlegm, get really tired,and maybe even experience a light fever, all these symptoms are part of living, go to the pharmacy, get a pill,right? Wrong. Listen up, for the body is giving you a signal.  It is saying “Hey, you, you who is in charge of this body, I need some help in detoxifying here! Cut down on your eating, drink more water, and get more rest. If you don’t you will be facing a disease further up the line 

Irritation
When a body is overtaxed and there is an inability for the liver to neutralize toxicity through the normal elimination channels, the body throws additional means of elimination into gear such as diarrhea, bad breath, acid urine, and bad skin outbreaks. Now these are the real warning signals.  Handle the condition, and then be sure to make the right lifestyle changes to reduce toxicity in on your body, or for sure you will be facing disease further up the line.

Inflammation
If irritation does not handle the problem, the body seeks to localize it. An example is tonsillitis. The toxicity has been contained around the tonsils and they are now inflamed. Another good example is tendinitis where the muscle ends flare up. Yet another example is arthritis which we may see as a chronic aging condition, maybe so? Yet it started once with localized inflammation in the joints that was not handled. Pain usually accompanies this kind of inflammation and can be regarded as the liver and the body upping its warning signal. In this stage the temperature is often elevated. In alternate medicine a fever is seen to be a good thing as it kills off bacteria and viruses. Fever is being generated by an overtaxed liver. It is how it handles the onset of disease.

Chronic Disease
If the inflammation is ongoing and it is not addressed and fixed, in fact if all the liver’s efforts and warning signals are ignored, or if any further toxic load is added by pain killing or anti-depressant medication,  the disease progresses into what we call a chronic illness.  What is happening is that the body is attempting to quarantine toxins by sacrificing a particular section or organ, for in this way it tries to avert death. It is in this stage that we  find tumors, cancerous growths or ulcers.

Organ Failure and Death
Unable to reverse the chronic disease the body chooses to die.

The whole awful process can be reversed if you master the gentle art of detoxification and know how to keep the detox, gentle.

Detoxification is the body’s way of removing and metabolizing dangerous compounds that have lodged in the body. This is called a healing crisis. By encouraging the body to flush out toxins, we not only boost our health and well-being, but also strengthen our immune system and prevent future disease. We are helping the factory (the liver) to have the time and energy to turn inwards and to clean house.

When going through such a detoxification one rarely feels good and it is wise to work with a doctor who understands detox or a natural healer to make sure that all is progressing as planned on a gentle gradient, not too fast and not too slow and facing no unexpected hurdles.

going throug it

You are feeling bad  because the toxins are coming off and this is a good thing. It is quite amazing but the body seems to know just how far it can push you, and it rarely dishes up what you cannot face. That is not to say while going through it, you won’t complain! Know however that when it is all over you will be feeling top of the world! You should hang in there, push through and look forward to the higher plateau of health that you have now very well earned

There are a few ways to make the detox lighter on you.

detox bath is one of the easiest healing therapies that can be done.  The skin is the largest detoxification organ so you want to soak in a bath that is as hot as you can take, while the toxins are being drawn out through the skin. Typically, a detox bath is made with Epsom Salts which draws out toxins, and also has health benefits.

During your soak do not use soaps or shampoos for your pores will be open and they will absorb the chemicals found in these products.  After your bath you may apply a natural moisturizer like Shea Butter.

 Herbal Cleansing
If your Detox organs are in good shape when you come upon a forced or needed detox, it will be much lighter on you.  At Picture Lady Health we recommend regular cleanses of the liver, colon and the kindney/bladder channels. After all you lube your car, why not lube your body?

cleanses

Set yourself up for improved energy,  a lighter detox and a better outlook on life with a regular and routine cleanse. Research shows that a feeling of well-being results when nutrition is not lost through non-absorption which can so often be the case when the elimination organs are clogged with waste material. Most important is the colon cleanse. If your colon is clogged with debris you can expect kidney and bladder problems or heavy skin outbreaks as the body moves on to the next (yet lesser efficient) channel of elimination.

If you do this cleansing routinely, your body will be in far better shape to cope with any illness.

 Live Water Therapy
Staying hydrated plays a crucial role in maintaining overall wellness.

Know that not all Water is the same and know that your body is close to 70% water. So in the face of illness or lost energy, it would make sense to address this aspect of your healing for many illnesses have the common attribute in that the  body has become dehydrated.

There is another practical reason for looking to water therapy as an answer. Depending on how far down the five stages of disease your body is, the more time you will need to rest. In our corporate culture, it is difficult to fast or restrict your eating to only alkaline foods. Live water therapy has many practical ramifications.

A problem is that in this recessed economy more and more individuals are being forced to work one or two jobs just to stay ahead. Older people have had their savings slashed and they too are out in the workplace coping. All of this is stressful. The stress is itself toxic. You may know that a detox is the answer, but find this ever increasingly hard to do. Under such modern life conditions it is a luxury to take time off to detox. Yet it is entirely practical to devote your weekends to rest and water therapy, and very easy to take an alkaline bottle of water with you to work each day. that bottle of water will ensure that while you are working your body will stay alkaline.

Live water has three crucial properties:

  1. It is alkaline and helps the blood to stay at optimum which is slightly alkaline.
  2. Live water handles free-radicals in the body, in other words it is anti-oxidizing.
  3. Furthermore Live Water is able to penetrate the cells and hydrate and nourish them. Believe me not all water has this property. Over a lifetime a toxic wall develops in many cells, making it impossible for them to be nourished or hydrated.  At the molecular level, live water is micro-clustered. In other words the water molecules are so small that they are able to bypass the toxic barrier that has built up in many of your cells.

Let’s hear what world-renowned biochemist Dr. Otto Heinrich Warburg once said about alkalinity, and oxidation and the part it plays in achieving better health.

In his ground-breaking research, Warburg found that all forms of unhealthy cells are characterized by two basic conditions: high acidity and lack of oxygen. lack of oxygen is a very serious and dangerous environment for a cell.  To even deprive a cell of oxygen for only 48 hours results in cell damage.  For better health Warburg insists that cells need an alkaline environment. This is why it is crucial to consume an alkaline diet with negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential).

The easiest way to satisfy these requirements is with “Live Water”. If this is a subject that interests you tell us in the comments section this post or email us at http://www.picturelady.com/ We will send you more specific information.

Growing Older Gracefully 

I want to keep my good looks. I want to grow old without pain? I want to stay alert and productive and comfortable and happy right up until the day I die!  Is this possible?

While we all age and while we all must eventually move on, it is an observable truth that while many suffer as they age there are those few who attain a quality of life well into their golden years. What it is that they do differently?

  1. The first thing is they seek out and find understanding. Almost one for one you will find that older people who have attained a quality of life go out of their way to obtain true knowledge. They take the time to go to the web or to the library, or they find a mentor, they follow a religious creed as it applies to health, whatever they do  they seek out true knowledge. Then they run their own bodies rather than have the body run them.
  2. Secondly they remain active, they walk, they go to the gym, they swim. My sister and brother in law ride bicycles. It started when his kids gave him a three wheeler for his birthday, but he was having nothing of this,  only children ride tricycles and he is not a child!  So he went out and bought himself his own regular bike; he is Dutch and so cycling is part of his roots. His wife got the tricycle for having had a knee replacement she needed a little more balance and a lighter gradient. To this day you can see them out and about, both wearing the quaint hard hats. She is 86 and he is 89 years old! They enjoy (by observation) a true quality of life.
  3. Thirdly the folks that age gracefully often do good deeds.  
  4. A friend whom I a
  5. dmire has volunteered most of her adult life, almost as long as she once worked for the phone company. She has been President of this or that Club, and has even travelled to Mexico to hand out glasses to the needy. What you notice most about her is not that she only has one eye, for that has never stopped her, what you notice is her incredible courage and willingness to help. She is 86 years old and she also surely enjoys a quality of life.
