Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to sleep. Tossing and turning. Your mind is racing, going over everything that happened today. Night noises keep you awake. What can you do? There ARE things you can do! Read on and learn some new tricks to sleep well. These tips are also known as "Sleep Hygiene."
- Sleep only when sleepy
- If you can't fall asleep within 20 minutes, get up and do something boring until you feel sleepy
- Don't take naps
- Get up and go to bed the same time every day
- Refrain from exercise at least 4 hours before bedtime
- Develop sleep rituals
- Only use your bed for sleeping
- Stay away from caffeine, nicotine and alcohol at least 4-6 hours before bed
- Have a light snack before bed
- Take a hot bath 90 minutes before bedtime
A hot bath will raise your body temperature, but it is the drop in body temperature that may leave you feeling sleepy. Read about the study done on body temperature below.
Trouble Sleeping? Chill Out! - A press release from the journal Sleep about the significance in body temperature before sleep

Dysmenorrhea is termed under the menstrual disorders related to the menstrual cycle. This primarily affects 50% of all women who have a menstrual period as statistics may say.
What causes it?
To understand dysmenorrhea, it's important to understand how the menstrual cycle works. Each month, the lining of the uterus, the endometrium, thickens to prepare for the egg that is released by the fallopian tubes. If the woman does not become pregnant during that cycle, then most of the endometrium is shed and bleeding occurs. The blood flows from the uterus, through the cervical canal, and out through the vagina. Primary dysmenorrhea occurs when the uterus contracts because the blood supply to the endometrium is reduced. This pain occurs only during a menstrual cycle where an egg is released. If the cervical canal is narrow, the pain may be worse as the endometrial tissue passes through the cervix. Pain can also be caused by a uterus that tilts backward instead of forward, low levels of physical activity, and emotional stress. Secondary dysmenorrhea can be caused by the growth of uterine tissue outside the uterus, called endometriosis; non-cancerous growths of muscle and fibrous tissue in the uterus, called fibroid tumors; the non-cancerous growth of the uterine lining in the muscular wall of the uterus, called adenomyosis; inflammation of the fallopian tubes; and the growth of scar tissue, or adhesions, between organs.
What are the symptoms?
Shortly before or in the beginning of the menstrual period, a woman with dysmenorrhea experiences cramps in the lower abdomen. The pain can be continuous, or may come and go, and may extend to the lower back and legs. The pain can be accompanied by headache, nausea, diarrhea or constipation, and the need to urinate frequently. In severe cases, dysmennorhea also causes vomiting and makes it difficult for the woman to participate in her normal activities. Symptoms are usually at their worst 24 hours after beginning, and stop after 2 days. Women with dysmenorrhea are more likely to pass blood clots from the lining of the uterus, which causes more pain.
See your doctor if you have a pattern of severe pain at the beginning of and during your menstrual period. A thorough exam will help determine if your pain is caused by some underlying condition that may need immediate treatment. Remember, rest, diet, and exercise play an important role in your overall health, and may help relieve premenstrual and menstrual symptoms.

sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.
(Hardly seems worth it.)
If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months,

(Now that's more like it!)
The human heart creates enough pressure when it
pumps out to the body to squirt blood 30 feet.

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body.
The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one
important food supply to the cancer cells. Sugar substitutes like
, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is
harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or
molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical
added to make it white in color. Better alternative is Bragg's aminos
or sea salt.
b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the . Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and
substituting with unsweetened soy milk cancer cells are being
c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is
acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than
beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth
hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people
d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains,
seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline
environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh
vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and
reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes to nourish and
enhance growth of healthy cells. To obtain live enzymes for building
healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables
including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a
day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40
e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green
tea is a better alternative and has cancer fighting properties. Water-
best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and
heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.
12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of
digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines
becomes putrefied and leads to more toxic buildup.
13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining
from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein
walls of cancer cells and allows the body's killer cells to destroy
the cancer cells.
14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence,
Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the
bodies own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements
like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or , the body's normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or
15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive
and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.
Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful
and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit.
Learn to relax and enjoy life.
16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment.
Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to
the cellular level. is another means employed to
destroy cancer cells.

1. Every person has in the body. These cancer cells do
not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few
billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests
are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached
the detectable size......" (
2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person's
3 When the person's immune system is strong the cancer cells will be
destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.
4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple
nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic,
environmental, food and lifestyle factors.
5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet
and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.
6. involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells
and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow,
gastrointestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver,
kidneys, heart, lungs etc.
7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and
damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.
8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often
reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and
radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.
9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and
radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence
the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and
10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and
become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause
cancer cells to spread to other sites.
11. An effective way to battle cancer is to starve the cancer cells
by not feeding it with the foods it needs to multiply.

Another fact that we have to consider is that not all women are blessed with beautiful skin, body built and yes, a gifted bust size. But, hey women! Worry no more, with the technology innovation and latest health science discoveries, all of these worries are now given a solution. A sub specialization in surgery now paves the way to skin treatment and surgical enhancements. Curious as I am with these innovations and updates, I looked into one of the most popular site for women who cater all kinds of plastic surgery that involves women beautification and enhancement.
MYA or Make Yourself Amazing Cosmetic Surgery provides a wide range of enhancements that women can choose from. Mind you, the prices are flexible too! They have different packages that will suit your budget needs!
Heres more! Because "the need to Looking Amazing" is not only a women thing nowadays, MYA also offers cosmetic surgeries for men. Since undergoing a cosmetic surgery is a big step for men, MYA is offering a free consultation for those interested! Amazing isn't? See it for yourself!

Yesterday, January 7 at around 4 in the morning, we headed to the Davao International Airport. It was the scheduled flight of my in-laws for Zamboanga. Some of them was their first time to board the plane. Noy and I were a little bit worried if they will be able to check-in to their respective flight smoothly. I checked out the Cebu Pacific office and lucky to see my cousin who works there is on duty. He accompanied me inside the airport and i was able to help my in-laws in there checking in. Once we were at the boarding area, i saw the excitement in the faces of my nieces. They were s thrilled to ride the plane. I can just recall the same experience during my first flight. Looking at their faces just made me smile and feel content. We actually made this kids' dream come true.

Last weekend Noy and I treated his family to an overnight stay at Paradise Island Beach Resort. We also invited some of the members of the pop choir to join us. The kids had a lot of fun under the sun while some of the members chose to jam along the shore line, with luigee playing the guitar.
We hit the waters at around 5 pm, when the sun was about to set. We played games and swam like we had never swim before. We had our dinner at around 7:30 pm and had a little chit chatting after.
When everybody hit their mattresses, Luigee and I, opted to build a sand castle. We built it in 4 hours. We we're all please with the result as this is both our childhood dream... to build a big sand castle. We were all the more proud when some of the beach goers asked to have their picture taken beside the castle! Rewarding isn't it?
At around 12 midnight, we rested our tired body. The next day, we left the beach early and head home.
Will be posting the pics soon! i forgot the USB cable at home eh *wink*
