You worded that beautifully Maria! 


Love is one of the (if not THE) greatest force in the universe! 


I would love to see a discussion somewhere on LOVE!  The different types.  What it is .. and what it is NOT.  The physiological changes that our bodies go through even with just a "hug!"  There are several studies I was looking at recently for some research I am doing. 


Love is what we ARE and what we are here FOR.


Hugs & Snowballs your way!

How can cure love?

Friends of the soul, in an earlier talk of unconditional love as the most powerful techniques. So simple and yet so difficult for those seeking desperately iluminatorios methods and better if they are complex or exotic . The energy of the universe is love in action, if we open ourselves to consciously to that strength, all our energy is power, and the first thing that heals, is the physical body . You only need unconditional love, gratitude for life , enthusiasm, and a blissful sense of calm . If you feel unconditional love, all the chakras are opened. All fields are opened in the same place , while at the same level.
It will open all of the same energy mode , with the consistent demonstration of unconditional love. One first love , and that is one expressed in all that lies before us . You get that feeling blessed that there is no separation, only unity. All is One One man said : " I want to open the chakras because I can have power. "

" Why do you want to have power ? What do you do with that power? "he asked . "I can show people that this is true, "he said emphatically . The typical response of the ego, a shelter of the spiritual. Individuality expressed. Then he said : " Would not it be better to live your life with unconditional love and genuine? Would not that be more real? " .

Senior, elderly: test your form!
Balance, flexibility, lung function ... where are you?

Your balance is satisfactory?

Result: you do not put your foot out of line ... or nothing once? Bravo! Your balance is satisfactory.
Your shoulders are they flexible?

Standing back and shoulder blades, well pressed against the wall, feet slightly away 45 cm from the wall, arms at your sides. Slowly your hands against the wall, back of the hand against the wall, without moving the elbows and back.

Result: how far can you go? You exceed the horizontal of 45 °? Fantastic! Your shoulders have retained all their flexibility!
Your breath is it good?

Put on your dress and sporting. Warm up. Choose a flat. Walk at a quick pace and steady for 6 minutes. Advice: do not go beyond your abilities, remember to breathe.

An important advance in the treatment of Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's

Posted: Jun 30 2010 1:20 AM PDT
Researchers at the University of Ottawa and Research Institute Ottawa Hospital (OHRI) we discovered the existence of a link between a protein and damage neurons. This study was published in the journal Nature Cell Biology.

The Professor David Park and Ruth Slack, University of Ottawa and Dr. John Woulfe, OHRI showed that an important mechanism of DNA repair is suppressed when neurons are stressed. The overactivation of Cdk5 is inappropriate, a protein normally present in neurons, results in suppression of an enzyme called APE1, which plays a role in DNA repair. This causes more damage to the DNA of neurons and their destruction. In addition, researchers have discovered that the way Cdk5-APE1 was disrupted in the brains of patients with Parkinson's or Alzheimer's.

These works reveal the first direct link between the protein Cdk5 and pathological mechanisms associated with neurodegenerative diseases. Furthermore, this discovery provides the possibility to design drugs targeting this pathway to limit neuronal death in patients with neurodegenerative diseases.

Non-drug approaches to Alzheimer's disease: the 2nd international symposium brought together 900 participants

To gather, recognize, share and evaluate

Symposium scene Photo approaches not médicamenteusesLes difficulties accompanying people with Alzheimer's disease or related diseases are increasing. The participation of 900 professionals at the second international symposium on non-drug approaches, organized by Agevillage / IGM France (Institute Gineste Marescotti), 12 and 13 November 2009, is one example.
The needs are great.
Professionals are waiting for support, answers, concrete suggestions, tools.

Non-drug approaches are one response.
Side by side, Validation of Naomi Feil ® was hailed by the authors of the Methodology care Gineste-Marescotti. The américians John Zeizel stressed the commitment of Nicole Poirier for his house Carpe Diem in Quebec. Mediation animal has rubbed neuropsychology working on apathy, aggression, support for patients and caregivers (see review by Jocelyne AIDMA Rotrou).
In Art Therapy DVD on non-medication approaches, U.S. researchers link these approaches are in support of pharmacological treatment.
Users of these methods show positive impacts: improvement of 83% of agitation (IPRIM Survey Methodology for the care-Gineste Marescotti ® released in 2008 Supplement June issue of Geriatrics), decreased drug use (USLD Tonneins-Marmande Dr. Bonnevay) of turnover, absenteeism (as in Alzheimer's Specialized Unit of the hospital geriatric Magnolias in Essonne).
Professionals, families, caregivers, feel that we can live Alzheimer otherwise, it is also necessary to recognize and empower them!
The philosopher Eric Fiat focused, argued the message of the inherent dignity of the sick, carried by the respect and above the agape "love."
These non-drug approaches will not "cure" the patients, but improved quality of life, that of caregivers, caregivers.
They actually accompany the evolution of care centers in community life, with fewer drugs, fewer hospitalizations, less turnover, less absenteeism, fewer complaints, more openings, projects, and positive motivating (see House of Friendship in Albi: a "realistic utopia").

Non-drug approaches are now taught in training courses.
They should be taught in basic training (to avoid reforming professionals on taking office).
The preliminary stage is necessary to conduct scientific studies through independent research, seriously.
Isolated, these approaches can not easily respond to the PHRC (Hospital Program for Clinical Research).
The presence of 900 motivated professionals, exchanges of different designers, suggest that progress is possible towards the scientific evaluation, among others.

No longer to be heard: it is terrible when it is old, "wrote Albert Camus. Old age is soon became synonymous with loneliness and dependency. The fact remains that in 2009, while the French show a life expectancy of 77.5 years for men and 84.3 for women, we must bow before the evidence of the aging of people *. Currently, 16.5% of the national population has more than 65 years, and, if trends continue, by 2015, approximately two million people will be older than 85 years.

However, it is not in the air time to be "old" and the age group over 75 years finds himself excluded from the family, and especially in the company. While in the West they are often out in Africa (where they are certainly far fewer) seniors are holding a rather knowledge transmitted orally. The formula Hampate Ba reflects the preponderance of old people in education and African traditions "In Africa, an old man dies, a library burns." In France, where there, as elsewhere in the West the speed, productivity and "modernity" the age of senior citizens is often dismissed in the family, and especially of the company. Some professionals complain of mistreatment, lack of dignity and social alienation, in short a "abuse of the elderly. The abuse can refer both to physical violence or psychological, but also neglect everyday conscious or unconscious. Among such abuse emerges the phenomenon of malnutrition in the elderly, which results in death 4-8 times a healthy subject ..

Whether "great length" (affecting about 5% of seniors) or "fragility" (affecting 20-25% of elderly), aging is often accompanied by a loss of autonomy to which it is difficult to overcome. This loss of autonomy maintains a relationship of interdependence with malnutrition, a phenomenon which is found at home as in an institution. According AFSSA, and it affects 20-30% of the frail elderly living at home or in institutions. Malnutrition is a deficiency of nutrient intake, nutrients and micronutrients in relation to the needs of our organization. It is often linked to the fact that elderly people concerned are unwilling or can not eat alone. When institutions, they receive no assistance or solicitation, we speak of abuse, as well as for meals too poor to necessary inputs.

Its consequences are manifold, including muscle wasting, altered host defenses, exhaustion, and increased dependence. It often occurs with pressure sores, weight loss by more than 5% in three months, or 10% in 6 months. BMI less than or equal to 21 is also a sign of malnutrition. For professionals, it is urgent to correct the deficiencies associated with malnutrition. To do this, AFSSA, calls for increased intake recommended for the elderly (usually 36 kcal / kg / d and 1 g / kg / d of protein) at 40 kcal / kg / d and 1.5 g / kg per day of protein, taking into account various factors. It is important to remind seniors that they need all types of foods, including eggs and milk. And especially to rehabilitate, especially in institutions, the pleasure of eating.

Call for end of life project

Healing, soothing, supporting the elderly or severely ill at the end of life (deadline: April 9 and September 7, 2010),

The Fondation de France is interested both in the fight against pain in older people as their support during the illness and until the end of life.
The palliative approach is defined as a practice of care and support for people throughout his illness and not just at the end of life. This is done to relieve the suffering of the sick person at home or in institutions, while respecting its autonomy, its history, its culture, its emotional and family environment. With an aging population, the need for a palliative approach in geriatrics is increasing.

But the medical staff involved with medico or elderly often face a lack of time, manpower and training, but also a lack of support and recognition, linked to a negative portrayal of old age.

Apart from serious illness and end of life, the Fondation de France has a particular interest in treating pain in the elderly. The pain, which has multiple causes, a fact of life of seniors. But many of them are unable to express this pain. - Fondation de France
