Polar Bear cubs (baby polar bear)

Most female polar bears mate at the age of four or five and some have cubs until they are 25 years old. Females leave thier baby when they are only one and a half years old and have cubs every second year. Most female have twins. Very young and mothers and very old ones often only have a single cub. And one percent of all polar bears has triplets.
Polar bear cubs nurse frequently and grow quickly. When they are 26 days old, they begin to hear; at 33 days their eyes open. When they are two months old (polar bear cubs picture below), the cubs weight 5.5 to 7.0 kilograms. They play and romp and sometimes one can hear them squeal.
On other side mother is sleepy and indulgent but if any danger threatens, she is immedately wide awake. The mother nurses the cubs for at least a year, but the cubs also share her meals. They watch her hunt and they begin to hunt themselves. About 40% females leave their cubs when they are only one and a half years old.

If they hunt easily these youngsters have a good chance to survive.

about roses...

In general, symbolizes grace and gentility. The pink rose carries the message "you're gentle and graceful". Deep pink says "thank you". Light pink conveys admiration and sympathy.

Nutritional Benefits of carrot...

Carrot is one of the most healing foods that provides the finest and highest quality in nutrients, especially from its juice. It is an excellent source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins C, D, E, K, B1 and B6.

It is rich with biotin, potassium, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, organic sodium and some trace minerals.

The known phytonutrients in carrots are lutein, lycopene, anti-oxidants alpha, beta and gamma carotenes, zeaxanthin and xanthophyll. You don't need to remember these fancy names, but just remember that phytonutrients are nature's marvelous provision for healing of various diseases.

Health Benefits

Carotenes, the famous ingredient in carrots, is an anti-oxidant that has powerful healing virtues for many diseases. Drinking a glass of carrot juice daily will do much more for you than many bottles of supplement tablets. Here are some disorders that can be helped by drinking carrot juice regularly:

Acidosis: The vital organic alkaline elements in carrots help balance the blood acidity and blood sugar.

Acne: Its powerful cleansing properties are effective in detoxifying the liver, thus overall effective for acne which are caused by toxicity of the blood.

Anemia: Carrot's molecules are closest to human's hemoglobin molecules, making it very beneficial in blood-building.

Atherosclerosis: The highly cleansing power of this miracle juice scrubs away even the old build-up of arterial deposits, reducing the risks of heart diseases and stroke.

Asthma: The anti-oxidants effectively protects the respiratory system from infections and free-radical attacks.

Cancer: Studies show that adding one carrot per day in our diet significantly reduces cancer risks.

Cholesterol: Pectin in carrots lowers the serum cholesterol levels.

Congestion: Carrot juice is very effective in dispelling mucus from the ear, nose and throat area, easing nasal congestion, sinusitis, phlegm and mucus in the throat and other similar disorders.

Pet Care On A Budget...

Pet care at home doesn't necessarily need to be expensive. Following are the American Animal Hospital Association's (AAHA) recommended home care tips for your pet.

Diet and Exercise

A balanced diet and exercise are important in ensuring your pet's good health. Obesity leads to serious pet health problems.

Don't feed your pet table scraps.

Your pet should always have fresh drinking water available.

Keep you pets away from potentially poisonous items, such as: chocolate, antifreeze, house plants, pesticides and medications.

Stretching to Stay Fit...

Stretching Made Simple

Because I work as a personal trainer, I perform a couple of stretching exercises every few hours. Many people, however, carry out an entire stretching routine at one time, often first thing in the morning.

Regardless of when you stretch, it's important to do so correctly. If you are recovering from an injury or have other health issues, consult your physician first, then keep the following in mind and start stretching:

  • Warm up. Be sure to warm your muscles a bit before stretching. Walking or marching in place are great options.
  • Move smoothly and steadily. Stretch slowly. You should feel a slight pulling sensation in your muscles as they extend. You want to feel resistance—not pain. Pain is your body's way of warning you that you're stretching too far.

    Make sure your stretches are steady and deliberate, not bouncy. Hold each stretch for 15 to 20 seconds.

  • Breathe. Never hold your breath while holding a stretch. Breathe comfortably. Exhale deeply for the last 5 seconds, relaxing into the stretch as much as possible.
  • Build endurance. The best way to start stretching is to work into it gradually. Practice daily, repeating each stretch two to three times with short breaks in between. Increase the repetitions and stretch your muscles further as your range of motion increases.

Remember that complete wellness doesn't stop with daily stretching. Eating right and increasing your heart rate through exercise are key factors to overall health as well.

The more flexible your body becomes, the more often you'll want to stretch. Soon, you'll find that the day doesn't feel complete without performing your stretching routine.

Give it a try. I guarantee that by stretching every day you'll enjoy life with renewed enthusiasm and feel the best you've felt in years. And that's no stretch of the imagination!

Healthy Salad Dressing Recipes

Zesty salad dressings to help you use your calories wisely

Salads can be deceptive - while the vegetables are healthy, the dressing and other toppings can blow a day's worth of calories in one sitting if you aren't careful.

These delicious dressings will add extra flavor to your salads while helping you stay on your diet.

Salad Dressing with a Kick
After trying nearly every bottled fat-free salad dressing on the market, my husband created his own. We think this zesty blend is just fantastic.
—Joyce Courser, Greenacres, Washington

Orange Poppy Seed Dressing
This light, refreshing dressing is yummy over spinach and other types of salad green. The sweet-tart combination of honey, mustard, vinegar and citrus also accompanies fresh fruit nicely.
—Sue Dannahower, Denver, Colorado

Tomato Herb Salad Dressing
A handful of herbs, including basil, marjoram and celery seed, helps perk up the low-sodium tomato juice used in this light, refreshing salad dressing. You won't miss the salt for a minute.
—Mary Kretschmer, Miami, Florida

Health Benefits of Bananas

Reducing Depression
Bananas contain tryptophan, an aminoacid that can be converted to serotonin, leading to improved mood
Bananas are relatively high in iron, which helps the body's hemoglobin function
Constipation and Diarrhea
Due to their content in fiber, they help restore a normal bowel function. In addition, diarrhea usually depletes your body of important electrolytes (of which the most important is potassium, contained in high amounts in bananas). They also contain pectin, a soluble fiber (hydrocolloid) that can help normalize movement through the digestive tract.
Eyesight Protection
Research published in the Archives of Ophthalmology has proven that adults consuming at least 3 servings of fruit per day have a reduced risk (by 36%) of developing age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), the primary cause of vision loss in older adults, compared to persons who consume less than 1.5 servings of fruit daily.
Healthy Bones
Bananas are an exceptionally rich source of fructooligosaccharide, a compound that nourishes probiotic (friendly) bacteria in the colon. These beneficial bacteria produce enzymes that increase our digestive ability and protect us from unhealthy bacteria infections. Thanks to fructooligosaccharides, probiotic bacteria can increase both in number and functionality, increasing our body's ability to absorb calcium.
In addition, green bananas contain indigestible short chain fatty acids (SCFAs) that are very nutrient to the cells that make up the mucosa of the stomach. These cells, when healthy, absorb calcium much more efficiently
Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try eating a banana for soothing relief.
Morning Sickness
Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood-sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness.
Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. They contain vitamins B6 and B12 they contain, as well as potassium and magnesium: these substances help the body recover from the effects of nicotine withdrawal.
This is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicle cases. It also helps reduce acidity and reduces irritation. Bananas stimulate the cells on the internal stomach lining to produce a thicker mucus (which protects against acid). Additionally, bananas contain protease inhibitors that help eliminate bacteria in the stomach that have been pinpointed as a primary cause of ulcers.
Bananas are high in B vitamins that have been shows to improve nerve function.

RilEx For A mInutE...

Smart Student

The college professor had just finished explaining an important research project to his class. He emphasized that this paper was an absolute requirement for passing his class, and that there would be only two acceptable excuses for being late.

Those were a medically certifiable illness or a death in the student's immediate family.

A 'smart' student in the back of the classroom waved his hand and spoke up. "But what about extreme sexual exhaustion, professor?"

As you would expect, the class exploded in laughter. When the students had finally settled down, the professor froze the young man with a glaring look.

"Well," he responded, "I guess you'll just have to learn to write with your other hand."

brain power foods

Brain power is characterized by how alert, energetic, and concentrated your brain is in response to a task. Information in your brain passes through neurotransmitters, which are manufactured by the nerve cells using precursors. Different neurotransmitters will have different impacts on your brain activity. For example, serotonin is the calming neurotransmitter that usually makes you more relaxed, drowsy, and fuzzy-headed. While dopamine and norepinephrine are neurotransmitters that make you more alert, more attentive, motivated and mentally energetic.

Food affects your brain power by affecting the production of neurotransmitters in your brain. By supplying amino acids, which are used as precursors to manufacture neurotransmitters, and by affecting the entry of the amino acids into brain, foods can have a significant impact on your brain activity. High-carbohydrate foods in general tend to subdue brain activity. Protein foods, on the other hand, can counteract carbohydrate food induced sluggishness. In addition, foods and herbs can have effects on brain activity by affecting blood circulation - the supply line of oxygen, nutrient, and hormone to the brain.

Eating is one the most important events in everyone’s life. We enjoy eating - it’s part of who we are and part of our culture; in fact, eating is the hottest universal topic of all times. We depend on eating: the foods we eat are the sole source of our energy and nutrition. We know so much about eating: we are born with the desire to eat and grown up with rich traditions of eating. But we also know so little about eating - about how the foods we eat everyday affect our health. We are more confused than ever about the link between diet and health: margarine is healthier than butter or not; a little alcohol will keep heart attacks at bay but cause breast cancer; dietary vitamin antioxidants can prevent lung cancer or can not. Eating is a paradox and a mystery that our ancestors tried and modern scientists are trying to solve.

Based on experiences and traditions, our ancestors have used foods and plant materials to treat various kinds of illness. Manuscripts discovered from a tomb (dated 168 B.C.) in China described prescriptions for 52 ailments with herbs, grains, legumes, vegetables, animal parts, and minerals. Ancient Sumerians recorded the use of 250 medicinal plants on tablets five thousand years ago. Today, plant and food remedies are still the major medicinal source for 80% of the world’s population.

The pharmacological roles of everyday foods have long been neglected by modern medicine due to lack of proven scientific validity. The main focus of modern medicine has been on pharmaceuticals. With the invention of modern chemotherapy by Paul Erhlich in the early twentieth century and sulfa drugs and antibiotics in the 1930’s and 1940’s, it seemed as if chemical medicines would take care of all our ills. However, while there continues to be great strides made in the understanding and use of pharmaceuticals, there is also widespread dissatisfaction with both them and the system of medicine that utilizes them. This dissatisfaction is centered around the feeling that they are too disease-oriented, and perhaps too limited by their precision to cope effectively with the subtle factors and interrelationships that compromise human health and disease. The precise and pure nature of modern biomedical pharmaceuticals also tends to increase their side effects. In addition, with the victory over many common infectious diseases, more people are concerned with chronic degenerative processes and with prevention of disease. The increasing concerns have started a new movement in medical research. More and more mainstream scientists are reaching back to the truth of ancient food folk medicines and dietary practices for clues to remedies and antidotes to our modern diseases.

Research on pharmacological effects of foods is fast-paced and the results are exciting. The mystery of what foods can do for or to us has started to unveil. In order to effectively use foods for our health benefits, the following issues need to be considered:

  • Keep up with the most recent scientific findings and make use of them for our health benefits
  • Try to use variety of whole foods as much as possible instead of isolated dietary supplements for your health problems - they are safer, cheaper, and usually more effective since they can provide multiple and balanced disease fighting capabilities
  • Choice of foods is important: since healing power of a food is depending on the content of pharmacologically active constituents that differ among foods, and certain foods may need to be avoided due to their disease encouraging activities
  • How do you prepare and eat your foods can affect their pharmacological effects
  • Concerns about multiple health conditions: foods that benefit one health condition may be harmful to others
  • Overall nutritional values of foods
