Spirituality but all of them have been wonderful for ME in my Spiritual walk




YOU and keeping your Cells and Body Happy

Every day in your body 432 billion cells die and are replaced with new cells.  This is the key to

regenerating your body and staying young.  Because

functioning body next year if you want, skinner, with fewer pains and more energy. If you take

the right steps.

That 432 billion number is a just scientific estimate.  Cells are so small and there are so many

in your body (somewhere between 60 – 100 trillion) that no one could ever count them

individually.  This is also why you do not notice your body renewing itself all the time.

Listed are examples of a new body:

Cells in our digestive system, from the stomach to the large bowels are replaced every 5


The liver is replaced every five months

A new covering of skin happens every four weeks

Our heart is replaced every six to nine months

Your liver is capable of renewing and repair from as little as 25% of itself

New studies are indicating that even brain cells may regenerate.

We know that in a fashion we are creating a new body by slowly getting new cells every day.

The question is whether our new cells will be healthier or less healthy

The quality of the new cells is dependent on the raw material, the food that

Was available when the replacement cells were being formed.  If you feed the body the proper

food nutrition, the new cells being formed can actually be stronger and healthier then the cells

ever were.

This is called regeneration.  If you feed the body poorly, the result will be cells of degeneration.

There are limits to this of course.  Researchers estimate that 30 percent of our health is

determined by genetics.

I would say these factors make your cells happy:





And you may know other factors but those are the main ones I believe.

Here are the big 5 degeneration factors to avoid

Processed foods




Rancid fats and oils

Here are the big 5 regeneration factors:

Fresh vegetables

Fresh fruits

Whole grains

Drink lots of pure water

Exercise, nourishing friendships, nature, sleep

The body was not meant to sit idle.  Neighed was our mind.  If you are not moving the body

regularly, it will become toxic and acidic.  Some health professionals say you should not be

sitting for more than one hour without getting up and moving.



YOU and ground black pepper sounds like such a simple

everyday item in our diets but I think you need to know about:

Organic ground black pepper and its health benefits

The following is from

They include relief from respiratory disorders, coughs, the

common cold, constipation, indigestion, anemia, impotency,

muscular stains, dental disease, pyorrhea, diarrhea, and heart


Black pepper is the fruit of the black pepper plant from the

Piperaceae family and s used as both a spice and a medicine.

The chemical piperine, which is present in black pepper, causes

the spiciness.  It is native to Kerala, the southern state of India.

Since ancient times, black pepper is one of the most widely

traded spices in the world.  It is not considered a seasonal plant

and is, therefore, available throughout the year When dried, this

plant-derived spice is referred to as a peppercorn and is then

ground into a powder to be put on food to add flavor and spice.

Because of its antibacterial properties, pepper is also used to

preserve food.  It is a rich source of manganese, iron, potassium,

Vitamin-C, vitamin K, and dietary fiber.  Black pepper is also a very

good anti-inflammatory agent.

Good for the stomach

Weight loss

Skin health

Respiratory relief

Antibacterial quality

Antioxidant potential

Enhances bioavailability

Cognitive impairment and neurological health

Peptic ulcers

Asthma and whooping cough

Dr. Mercola has some good facts on black pepper:

Black pepper helps shore up the system with other minerals like

potassium for controlling the heart rate and blood pressure, and

calcium to strengthen your bones and teeth.  Zinc, according to

studies promote cell growth and are a stealth antioxidant,

protecting against free radical damage.

Black pepper contains essential oils like piperine, ammonia-

derived alkaloid, which gives pepper its bold character and heat,

as well as the monoterpenes sabinene, pinene, terpinene,

limonene, and Mercene, which give this spice it aromatic

qualities.  All combined, these oils in aromatherapy can help in

easing aching muscles chilblains, and arthritis, and have a

curative property for constipation and sluggish digestion.

Now the good part:

A study by the University of Michigan Cancer Center found that

black pepper was found to prevent the development of breast cancer

tumors.  They found that the piperine content of black pepper

plays a key role in preventing cancers.  When combined with

turmeric its anticancer properties are heightened.








Focusing on a Moment of Joy


YOU and how the sun affects your mind

Sunlight has a profound impact on your mental health.  Out of 19

environmental factors, the only one correlating to higher levels of

distress was the amount of time between sunrise and sunset.

An estimated 20 percent of American are affected by seasonal

affective disorder(SAD) each winter.  What differentiates SAD from

regular depression is that full remission occurs in the spring and

summer months.

The complex stimulus of sunlight can affect your mood and

mental health through a number of mechanisms, including affecting

your Vitamin D, serotonin, endorphins, nitric oxide levels and

mitochondrial energy. According to a paper published in the

Journal Dermato-Endocrinology, a large number of molecules

found in the different layers of your skin absorb and interact with

ultraviolet rays producing a number of complex and synergistic


Sunlight also regulates your circadian rhythm, light therapy has

been shown to be effective against depression, both SAD and

non-seasonal major depression.

Vitamin plays an important role in mental health, so if fall and

winter months leave you feeling blue, you would be wise to add

vitamin D to your supplement protocol.

Regular exercising has been found to work better than

antidepressant drugs.  In fact, it is one of the most powerful

strategies available to prevent and treat depression and boost

your mood.  Exercise works by helping to normalize your insulin

levels while simultaneously boosting “feel good” hormones in your

brain.  Researchers have also discovered that exercise allows

your body to eliminate kynurenine, a harmful protein associated

with depression

Avoiding processed foods Foods have an immense impact on

your mood and ability to cope, and eating a diet of fresh, whole

foods will best support your mental health

Gut health also influences your mental health – take a good

probiotic and eat fresh and organic foods as much as possible.

Omega -3 fats. -cod-liver oil and also B12 will help

Your mental health is body health and spiritual health all interact

with each other and have to keep all balanced

Stay strong and be courageous and brave

production of serotonin.  The research as conducted by Bristol

University and University College London.


As we age, gardening helps to stimulate the brain.


Gardening helps in physical exercise, social interactions,

cognitive learning and reducing risks of dementia for people in

their 60s and 70s.






YOU and YOUR Spiritual Happy


Here is a great positive quote by Gordon B Hunckley

“Those who move forward with a Happy Spirit will find that things will always work out.”


Expect the Best

Find Your center

Let go of the past


Focus on what is important

Recognize what is not YOUR stuff and what is


Here are some ways to be Happy Spiritually

Life has a purpose

Inner happiness cannot be taken away

Fill your time with activities that make your heart grow

You a find a place of peace that stress cannot wear out

Wellness will make your body happy


Here are some more inspirations to make Happy Spirits

Design your life to bring JOY

What is YOUR “Golden Self”?

Avoid “if only” fantasies

Allow YOURself to be happy

St. Francis de Sales said: “where there is peace and meditation,

there is neither anxiety nor doubt.”

Meditation is a safe and easy way to move towards a path of

connection, healing, and inner peace.  It is a way to connect to

your own higher wisdom, intuition, and guidance.


Calm is a super power


YOUR body can become sick and unhealthy is YOUR spirit is not

healthy and happy.  That is why mind, body, and spirit are woven

together – that when one is sad and/or has had trauma the other

ones are affected.  They are ONE – they are YOU – the 3.

Here is a wonder inspirational quote:

My to-do list for today:

-count my blessings

-practice kindness

-let go of what I can’t control

-listen to my heart

-be productive yet calm

-just breathe


Keep up the Happy Spirit every day you can because trauma and

sadness does come along once in awhile and throws us back on

our heels.


Stay strong

Stay courteous

Stay positive

Stay grateful

Stay healthy



Today will never come again.  Be a blessing.  Be a friend,

Encourage someone.  Take time to care.  Let your words heal,

and not wound.


Here is:

Advice from a tree

Stand tall and proud

Go out on a limb

Remember your roots

Drink plenty of water

Be content with your natural beauty

Enjoy the view


You will never have these 24 hours again.

Sadness and trauma hits us all during different times of our


Each of us has to get through those times the best way we

Can.  Smile sometimes when going through those times.  Laugh

sometimes when you are going through those times.  Remember

the wonderful moments in life you have had and remember you

will have wonderful moments ahead and in all your tomorrows.







YOU and Immanuel Velikovsky

He wrote great books in the universe, he did all his research.  I

have in my library most of his books and have read them.  I also

have the book written by his daughter who was also a Ph.D. and

wrote about what her father went through mentally when he his

work was rejected, ridiculed and had a hard time getting them



His work has proven to be factual and true – after 40 years of

being disparaged


I also have the book his daughter wrote about her father having

been through those hard years.  Dr. Ruth Velikovsky Sharon is a



Because there were high-level educators that dismissed his work

over the years it took it toll on Dr. Velikovsky mentally.  His

theories from his research all have been proven to be true and

factual.  One of his theories is that the temperature of Venus is

very high and yet the educators were saying it is the same

temperature as earth.  Now we know that Venus temperature is

very high.


The educators and researchers who maintained that what

Velikovsky was not correct but they would only be proven wrong

as our space travel over the years has proven Dr. Velikovsky

correct and those educators and researchers have been made to

look like the uneducated people they are.  Carl Sagan even went

along with the criticism of Dr. Velikovsky.


Never giving up over the years it caused great depression for Dr.

Velikovsky..  We all want our work and research, maybe not to be

glorified but appreciated by our colleagues and equals.


It was never ending and never did end for Dr. Velikocvsky, even

after his death.  I can still see some reviews that there are still left

over non-believers and it breaks my heart after all that has come

out and from all the space travel that has proved his theories



Always know that when YOU challenge the prevailing views and

theories that there will be fallout.

Harvard’s head of the department of Astronomy dept. went after Dr.

Velikovsky for the rest of his life.  Never reading his material, just

not wanting to believe in another thesis because then all they

were teaching would be considered wrong.

I find Dr. Velikovsky a giant among men who have done research

after research for years and years and writes about it only to have

their peers dismiss their work is disturbing that they would not try

to verify the thesis, they disagreed with.  And made a brilliant


into a depressed mind over years and years.


Read Dr. Vilikovsky’s books, at least 1 or 2 and enjoy his journey

of research from cultural myths to reality.





YOU and Gilda Radner ““it’s Always Something” dying with cancer


It was in the early 1990a’s that I read Gilda’s book about her

journey as she was dying of ovarian cancer.

And I can remember as I was reading why was ovarian cancer

so hard to detect and took until it almost had reached the last stages for the

women to have a doctor find it.  It reinforced my thinking that somehow we needed

to keep our inside as healthy as we keep our outside.

Then they came up with a blood test several years after Gilda

passed and that was to help but not all women and not all doctors

were giving the blood test or knew enough to ask for it.


CA-125 Blood test is what they came up with-protein that is in the

blood.  I believe it came out after Gilda had passed also.

Her book is her personal account of her struggle with ovarian

cancer and her inspiring attempt to keep an upbeat attitude during

her illness.  Her discussion of a Santa Monica patient support

group called the Wellness Community is the best part of the

book and may be of interest to cancer patients and their families.


I was not a fan and have never like SNL but I did like Gilda and

her Roseanna Roseanna that I could watch sometimes.

Gilda and Gene Wilder, her husband, used comedy and their

the sense of humor to cope with cancer.


I remember in the late 1940’s my aunt had both her breast

removed and the pain she suffered after That-I believe they

mainly did research on women before the final and best treatment

becomes available.  And I believe Gilda had some of that also

with ovarian cancer before the last 20 years have helped in that



So YOU can help women and friends that are going through

cancer I highly recommend Gilda’s book, the “The Last Lecture” by

Randy or Dr. Thomas Dooley’s great book as he was dying about

“Before I Sleep”.


I lost my mother, brother and sister to 3 different cancers in the

The early 2000s and I hope as we went through their time in Hospice

that I was a comfort to each of them as they passed.


Be brave and courageous as we go through life, knowing that you

will have family and friends that are dying of cancer.  I know each

of you will be there for them in their journey.
