Do you believe in Law of Attraction? That you can get something by just thinking of it? Do you want to know if Law of Attraction Accelerator might change your life?
There has some proof that law of attraction exists since early years. Until now some people is using this as a guide to do the right thing. That the mind has the power to control the things you want to happen in reality. There are four things according to the believers that a person must practice in order to control energy. These are:
- Know what one desires and ask the universe for it. (The "universe" is mentioned broadly, stating that it can be anything the individual envisions it to be, from God to an unknown source of energy.)
- Focus one's thought upon the thing desired with great feeling such as enthusiasm or gratitude.
- Feel and behave as if the object of one's desire is already acquired.
- Be open to receiving it. (wikipedia)
There are many criticisms everywhere about Law of Attraction. But I guess, if following its principles will make a positive effect in one’s life, and then let it be your guiding light to a better life ahead.

A study whether eating whole wheat or refined wheat would help in maintaining healthy body weight was done at American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. They found out that women from 38-63 years old who consumed whole wheat are less likely to gain 49% of their weight compared to those eating foods from refined grains..
Reduce Risk of Metabolic Syndrome
First we were told, "Don't eat fat, and you'll stay trim." After following this advice only to see obesity expand to never before seen proportions, we're told by the food gurus, "Eating fat is fine. Shun carbohydrates to stay slim."
There is a latest research that consuming more refined grains and the foods that are made of them, such as white bread, cookies, pasta and rice are now being linked to increased risk of Type 2 Diabetes and metabolic syndrome. And while eating whole grain foods can protect us from all these diseases. .
Whole grains are a rich source of magnesium, a mineral that acts as a co-factor for more than 300 enzymes, including enzymes involved in the body's use of glucose and insulin secretion.
The FDA permits foods that contain at least 51% whole grains by weight (and are also low in fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol) to display a health claim stating consumption is linked to lower risk of heart disease and certain cancers. Now, research suggests regular consumption of whole grains also reduces risk of type 2 diabetes. (van Dam RM, Hu FB, Diabetes Care).
Helps Prevent Gallstones
A study published in the American Journal of Gastroenterology shows that eating foods high in insoluble fiber, such as cereals and breads made from whole wheat, can help women avoid gallstones by 17% and a 5-gram increase in insoluble fiber intake dropped risk to additional 10%. Insoluble fiber reduces secretion of bile acid, increases insulin sensitivity and lower triglycerides (blood fats).
It Gets You Going
Wheat bran is a popular bulk laxative. A third of a cup per day is all that is needed. Research studies support this popular practice. A fiber-rich diet, primarily composed of whole wheat breads, cereals high in bran and supplemental "millers bran" was shown to alleviate the symptoms of diverticular disease (pain, nausea, flatulence, distension, constipation, etc.) in 89 percent of patients enrolled in a study which examined the effects of fiber on bowel regularity. Diverticular disease, a condition often marked by inflammation and lower abdominal pains in which chronic constipation and excessive straining results in a sac or pouch in the wall of the colon, is typically treated with dietary roughage such as cereal fiber (i.e., wheat bran), fruit and vegetable fiber, and plenty of fluids.
Promotes Women's Health and Gastrointestinal Health
Wheat bran is also been said as an anti-cancer agent. It is thought to accelerate the metabolism of estrogen, which is a known link in developing breast cancer.
Interestingly, whole grains such as wheat also contain lignans, which are phytonutrients that act as weak hormone-like substances. Lignans occupy the hormone receptors in the body, thus actively protecting the breast against high circulating levels of hormones such as estrogen. By accelerating the metabolism of estrogen and occupying estrogen receptors in the body, the components of wheat appear to have a dual function in protecting women against one of the leading causes of cancer death.
Abundant in all whole grains, insoluble fiber is also found in nuts and the edible skin of fruits and vegetables including tomatoes, cucumbers, many squash, apples, berries, and pears. In addition, beans provide insoluble as well as soluble fiber.

Acute Coronary Syndromes (ACSs) are clinical conditions that involve the rupture or erosion of plaque. Acute myocardial Infarction is one of its types. This is the leading cause of death in US and
Psychological Stress and intensive physical exertion triggers MI attack. ACS commonly results when thrombus progresses and occludes blood flow. Occlusion of a vessels progresses through three stages:
- Ischemia- blood flow and oxygen demand are out of balance. It can be resolved by improving flow or reducing oxygen demand.
- Injury - when the ischemia is prolonged enough to damage the area of the heart.
- Infarct- myocardial cells have died.
Thorough assessment is very essential and must be done quickly and so diagnostic test to be done can be determined and perform immediately.
Above mnemonic is the common treatment to any patients experiencing ischemic chest pain or suspected ACS.
Complication of ACS may include: ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. If this complication occurs, there are separate treatment for this and more or less more invasive and massive.
Implantable cardioverter–defibrillator (ICD) is now considered as the first-line treatment and/or prophylactic therapy for patients who are at risk of developing ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. This is a device entrenched near the shoulder and one or more leads connecting the device to the heart. It delivers life-saving therapy to people who are in jeopardy for abnormally rapid heart paces that can cause abrupt cardiac arrest.
In the year 2004, Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator Leads which is an ICD was introduced to the market but was recalled last October 15, 2007 because a small number of fractures have been detected. When the lead breaks (fractures), it may cause unsuitable shocks or result in a loss of therapy, such as pacing or shocking. This Defective Defibrillator Leads had been linked to five deaths that used the device and the family of the victims filed a law suit against the manufacturer.
As of now, Medtronic Recall Lawyer is asking those with Medtronic Spring Fidelis lead to come out and consult them for free to know their rights as users of this defective device.
Most of us, I think have an elderly love ones who need proper care and in some cases, treatment. We tend to think that asking help from a professional or placing our mom, dad, grandma or grandpa to a nursing home is an act of abandonment. In this busy world we have, even how we wanted to personally take care of them, there are things that only professional caretakers can do. We love them so much that we want to give the best care for them that we cannot fulfill.
Choosing the right care homes for our love ones is not easy. We need to research on the Internet and read some news or articles related to these matters, so that we can understand further their needs, and we can select what is the finest for them. We have to consider their specific needs and concerns. We have to ask them what they want and what are their expectations. And we make sure the care homes we choose should meet these important aspects. Comfort of our love ones should also be considered. As much as possible, the comfort they can receive is closest to home.
