"If the only prayer you say in your whole life is "thank you", that would suffice." ~Meister Eckhart


1) WHAT DEPLETES YOUR SOUL?

"Certain activities, attitudes, foods, and persons support the cultivation of an unconscious life. They draw us away from our center. They throw us off-balance. They deplete the soul." -- Patricia Lynn Reilly

Some activities we think are restful are, in fact, draining. Set an intention to really become aware of how you feel after you’ve engaged in different activities. Solitude and awareness help us make better choices for ourselves.

"Enlightenment is not about imagining figures of light but of making the darkness conscious." -- C.G. Jung


2) ACIDOPHILUS: A PROBIOTIC BACTERIUM

When we hear the word bacteria we automatically think negative about it. After all, some bacteria really cause infections. However, that negative belief about bacteria may not be always true especially for your digestive tract, which considerably holds a massive number of bacteria and has then evolved to apply some good bacteria for some significant functions and effects.

It is interesting to know that our digestive tract contains for about 400 various kinds of bacteria and yeast, and among those numbers, the Lactobacillus acidophilus and other members of the Lactobacillus family served important function to our health.

Speaking of the acidophilus, it is believed that acidophilus is a probiotic bacterium and acidophilus is considered as such for the reason that such bacteria aids in maintaining our intestinal health. Aside from that, acidophilus greatly serves as a natural antibiotic against potentially injurious organisms. By taking acidophilus therefore will help us maintain our normal balance of valuable bacteria in the intestines and vagina. One of the unparalleled food sources of acidophilus is considered to be the yogurt. The yogurt is long valued for its nutritional and therapeutic benefits. Yet, it is greatly important to know that there are some variations in the quantities of acidophilus found in yogurt. Some brands of yogurt sometimes contain none at all, which makes it too tough to obtain reliable amounts. So to make sure of the quality for acidophilus, some commercial manufacturers recently add the active culture after pasteurization, which is a heating process that can ruin both the unwanted and beneficial organisms.

The supplements of acidophilus are an effective option. The acidophilus supplements are currently sold in health-food stores, which often combined with another group of organisms known as Bifidobacteria that also functions as probiotics.

There are several health benefits from taking acidophilus. Some people take acidophilus for the purpose of treating and preventing digestive disorders, vaginal infections, and other illnesses. Numerous studies reported that this group of bacteria functions as an immunity enhancer, and they may restrain the toxic effects of carcinogens, which are cancer-causing agents.

For particular mention, the acidophilus is most commonly used to ease irritable bowel syndrome, which is a constellation of gastrointestinal symptoms that involves abdominal bloating, cramping, and diarrhea. In relation to that, this organism will control diarrhea, reduce flatulence, and will combat vaginal yeast and other infections that are connected with Candida, which is yeast that normally lives in union in our body.

Acidophilus also functions to relieve urinary tract infections and they greatly battle bad breath. It is considered that an amount of acidophilus can encourage more efficient digestion and reduce the number of odor-producing bacteria.

The acidophilus may come in several forms such as tablet, suppository, powder, liquid, douche, and capsule. And today, due to the recognized benefits of this element, acidophilus is largely made available at most health food and nutrition stores. It is just necessary to note that they usually come in two major forms, either in capsules or powder.

In taking the supplement, it is just important to remember that adults are required to take capsules as directed on the bottle; for children, capsules are permitted if able to swallow, otherwise give one teaspoon of the powder once a day in milk, juice, or food; and for the infants, you should make a paste using water or breastmilk and rub this once a day in babys mouth, or place one teaspoon once a day if bottlefeeding.

3) MATE TEA

Once it was popular with the Inca Indians, today it is a national drink of the Argentinian gauchos.

The main component is caffein, and it contains valuable vitamins A, B1, B2, and C, trace elements and enzymes.

Caffein gives the tea an energizing effect, but because it is partially bound to tannins, it is mild and well tolerated.

Mate tea is also a natural appetite suppressant, so it is a good choice during a diet or fast. The caffein breaks down sugar and fat, so hunger is reduced and energy is released for the metabolic process. Drink 3 cups daily.

The tea also promotes the elimination of wastes and supports intestinal flora. It assist the cleansing the kidney. In spring or fall, drink 3-4 cups every day for 4 weeks. It will boost your metabolic system and encourage the excretion of bodily toxins.

The chlorogenic acid in the leaves forms bonds with heavy metals in the body, and they are excreted by the urinary tract and digestive system.

Mate tea is also good to strengthen the nerves, it can help bladder infections, and may promote wound healing by placing a compress on he wound .

Preparation Of The Tea

Pour 1 cup of hot water over 1 tbs. of dried mate leaves. Steep it for 5-15 minutes. If it is too bitter, discard the water after 30 seconds and pour more water over the leaves. The second cup will contain less caffein. You may sweeten the tea with honey or maple syrup.

In summer, quench your thirst with a refreshing glass of cold mate tea. Make the tea, refrigerate and serve with a bit if lemon juice.
