Blue Zones

Blue Zones are places in the world where people live “astoundingly long lives” – for example, reaching the age of 100 three times the rate of Americans. And suffering a fifth the rate of heart disease. Imagine being able to hold your great-great-grandchild one day . . .

I first learned of Blue Zones when one of the editors I work with went on a “Quest” to the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica, one of the four Blue Zones (the others are Okinawa, Japan, Loma Linda, California, and Sardinia, Italy).

Dan Buettner, a journalist who worked extensively on researching these communities, has come out with a book titled The Blue Zone. I want to read the book in context, so I’m refraining from skipping ahead, but based on the Blue Zones website and other articles I’ve read, I know some of the lifestyle practices of centurions are (1) plant based diets (not necessarily vegetarian, but plant-based); (2) laughter; (3) spirituality; (4) family; and (5) physically active lives (like gardening and laboring).

Just because Washington DC isn’t a Blue Zone doesn’t mean my body and my house can’t be one.

Get Better Savings by Buying Your Nolvadex Online

Nolvadex is a treatment drug that is highly popular amongst middle-aged women.  This is because this is the drug that is very useful as well as effective when it comes to treating or preventing the development of breast cancer.  The reason that this drug is very effective when it comes to the treatment of such is that the drug itself has been made particularly to bind with estrogen receptors, thus prevent the estrogen activated growth of the cancer.  Once the drug is absorbed by your body via metabolic processes, the drug’s mechanism of action as selective estrogen receptor modulator will be binding itself towards estrogen receptors and preventing estrogen hormones from binding with the receptors.  Breast cancer actually needs estrogen for growth.  However, if the levels of estrogen are being limited, in essence, you will be able to stop the cancer from growing.

Nolvadex actually has other uses aside from just solely treating breast cancer.  In fact, Nolvadex can be used for treating medical conditions such as angiogenesis, bipolar disorder, infertility problems, estrogen-related premature puberty, and gynecomastia.  Nevertheless, for more than three decades, Nolvadex has been used mostly for the treatment or prevention of female breast cancer.  If you are looking to buy this anti-estrogenic drug, then you will be glad to know that you can buy Nolvadex online.

As mentioned earlier, it is more economical to get your Nolvadex online.  However, if you buy Nolvadex online, it will take around several days before you are able to get your first dosage of the drug.  If you require to take the drug immediately, the best thing to do is to first purchase your doses of Nolvadex online and get the estimate on when your Nolvadex online purchase will be delivered to you.  This will provide you with a rough estimate on how much Nolvadex pills you will need to purchase from your local drugstore while waiting for the package of your Nolvadex online purchase.

Like the Lotus

During closing, my hands are at my heart in prayer. The yoga teacher says to move my fingers so that only my thumbs and pinky are touching – the center is to remain open, like a flower. She says the lotus grows in the mud and opens up when the sun shines on it, and closes when it doesn’t. She says, “Remember that when life is murkey, and I’m struggling through the mud, to open up, like the lotus.”

Silent Mind

My life is full of words. If I’m not writing an article, I’m writing in my journal. If I’m not blogging here, I’m blogging here. If I’m in the shower or walking the dog or cooking a meal, I’m “writing” in my head. Other times I’m reading books (more words) and magazines and newspapers.

Mostly, this is good. I love words. But I realize it’s also important to empty my mind of the 26 letters of the alphabet that are constantly buzzing around in various arrangements in my head.

We live in a world with constant noise: TV, construction, motors, whirring coffee machines – even tranquil spas and yoga classes play music. What’s that about?

Anyway, as part of my home yoga practice, I’m trying to incorporate a time to be silent. I’m not chanting a mantra (more words) or telling myself, “When this is over I need to write that thought down!”

Of course it seems our brains are always full of thought (at least my female brain is…my husband swears he’s thinking of “nothing” if I ask him. Actually, since I’m on the topic, what do babies think about? Can you have thoughts without language?)

Anyway, sitting in silence is an attempt to empty my mind…and to simply experience the quiet. A need that my bloggy friend Kathryn describes as a part of our days that is sorely missing in these times. It’s nice to invite it back into my life.Š
